Mika Brzezinski tried to link white nationalists with Fox News on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Tuesday and said they could financially invest in the network.
“If you like white nationalism, you can invest in some of these Fox News programs and these Fox News hosts,” Brzezinski said. “You can do that. They’re there for you.”
Brzezinski and her co-host Joe Scarborough were alluding to a “certain media company” earlier in the interview, saying it was complicit in spreading racism, fear and hate.
“You know, I don’t think we with — I think we always expected possibly people like this with impulses like this, but I don’t think we expected a complicit media arm or a complicit Congress to be part of this,” Brzezinski said.
“The problem here, Mika, is not only is the media arm complicit, not only is Congress complicit, they are actively engaging in the fear-mongering and the lying and the hatred and the racism,” Scarborough replied.
“When you talk about the others bringing smallpox to America when it was eradicated … in 1980, when you’re talking about … leprosy being brought to the United States by a caravan that is not going to even exist by the time it gets up to the United States if what happened in April happens this time as well … They are spreading this racist lie.”
Scarborough said if someone is a stockholder in the “certain media company,” he or she is a part of an entity responsible for spreading “white nationalist lies.”
“Think about this. If you’re a stockholder of a certain media company, the stock that you are holding, the stock that you are holding actually puts you in ownership with a media company that is spreading white nationalist lies — lies about leprosy, lies about smallpox, lies about the others invading the United States of America,” he concluded.
