At this time of ultimate division, anyone who CARES about this country should be calling for unity and healing.
What is MSNBC calling for?
Quite literally a pitchfork-wielding mob.

How’s THAT for violent rhetoric?
PS Chris Hayes calls the protests outside Mitch McConnell’s house, in which people quite literally called for his DEATH, an example of a successful demonstration.
According to Daily Wire:
MSNBC host Chris Hayes supported a call for protests at the private residence of a billionaire Trump donor after a guest urged demonstrators to show up at his home with “pitchforks and torches.”
“People of color are already targets under this administration,” Elie Mystal, the executive editor for the “Above The Law” legal blog, told Hayes on Thursday. “I have no problem with shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate. I go farther, I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons.”
WAIT… I thought we had decided inciting violence was a BAD thing?
“I’ve been to the Hamptons, it’s very nice, but there’s no reason why it has to be,” he continued. “There’s no reason why he should be having his nice, little party. There’s no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside of his house and making their voices peacefully understood that they reject this stuff.”
Mystal’s remarks were in reference to billionaire Stephen Ross, who recently held a fundraiser for President Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign. Ross is the chairman and majority owner of The Related Companies, which owns Equinox and SoulCycle fitness centers.
“Totally,” Hayes responded. “There have been peaceful protests outside [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell’s house and I imagine there will be peaceful protests outside [Ross’s house]. Again, it’s all speech.”
