MSNBC chyron tells viewers to ‘resist’ Republicans

MSNBC, the cable outlet I once called the official network of insane liberal hate, promoted hatred against Republicans when it chose to display, “Resist” in its chyron.  The term is generally used as a rallying cry for liberal Trump-haters.  But, the Washington Examiner said, “the cable news network was using it with a sense of apparent irony.”

According to Eddie Scarry:

The graphic appeared leading into NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell’s noon program as a tease for a segment about U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions remaining in his position even as President Trump publicly criticizes his work performance.

Nevertheless, it was spotted on social media.

Is America headed for a recession?

“The least subtle chyron of all time from ,” tweeted a White House reporter for France24 who called MSNBC “The official 24-hour news channel of the resistance.”

One person asked:


Crowther responded:

Perhaps the chyron graphic was ironic, perhaps not.  Nevertheless, it certainly fits the coverage provided by the network.

In June, for example, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews suggested Trump have his son-in-law murdered in the same way Benito Mussolini did.

“So the son-in-law — you know, one good thing Mussolini did was execute his son-in-law. I mean, I’m talking about Ciano,” he said.

Matthews also showed sympathy for James Hodgkinson, the crazed Bernie Sanders supporter who shot GOP Rep. Steve Scalise, saying, “We don’t know what sadness was in this guy’s life.”

About the same time, MSNBC hack Joy Reid suggested Scalise deserved to be shot because of his conservative voting record.

As we noted here: “The implication is clear.  According to Reid, Scalise apparently deserved to get shot because of his conservative voting record.”

Of course, this goes beyond “resistance.”  This is incitement.  But it’s the norm for MSNBC.

And there’s more.  In April, a contributor to the network nominated a Trump property as a bombing target for ISIS.  The same month, Chris Hayes called Trump supporters “Nazis” and got his clock cleaned on Twitter.  Hayes also once claimed ISIS is engaged in a “heroic struggle.”  In 2012, he angered many when he said he wasn’t comfortable with calling fallen military “heroes.”

Then there’s Mika Brzezinski, who once claimed the media’s job is to “control exactly what people think.”

“Well, I think that the dangerous, you know, edges here are that he is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts,” she said of Trump. “And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

We can go on and on and on, but you get the point.

So is the chyron graphic of “Resist” ironic or is it just another example of liberal bias at the network?  Unfortunately, it’s difficult to tell given MSNBC’s history.
