MSNBC’s Chris Hayes calls Trump supporters ‘Nazis,’ gets clock cleaned on Twitter

Chris HayesOn Wednesday, Chris Hayes, the MSNBC propagandist I’ve seen described as being somewhat less masculine than Rachel Maddow, stepped on a virtual rake when he described Trump supporters as Nazis on Twitter:

New York magazine writer Jonathan Chait noted:

And as we reported here, those threats of violence from leftists prompted organizers to cancel a parade originally set for this weekend.

Another person noted that Antifa thugs have threatened much more than Republicans or Trump supporters:

Hayes tried to backtrack but ended up stepping on yet another virtual rake, suggesting that those opposed to Antifa are white supremacists:

He got hammered for that as well:

Writing at the Daily Wire, Joseph Curl noted:

Now, forget that the antifa is actually much more like the adherents to the authoritarian fascist Hitler. And forget that ad hominem attacks are the weakest form of argument in political discourse, and that calling someone a “Nazi” is the weakest form of ad hominem attacks.

When a political talk show host calls people who don’t think like him “Nazis,” there really isn’t anywhere to go with that debate.

We agree.

Keep in mind that Hayes has a long history of this kind of nonsense as I noted here at Newsbusters back in 2013 and here back in 2012.
