MSNBC contributor Mara Gay stated Tuesday that she was \"disrupted\" to see \"dozens of American flags\" zipped Donald Trump advocates during a weekend journey to Long Island, New York.
The left-wing editorial board member for the New York City Times was also troubled by what she called curs on the trucks against Head of state Biden, describing the flag-flying Trump advocates as sending a clear message: \"This is my nation ... not your country. I own this.\"
\" The reality is right here that we have a huge percentage of the American population-- I do not understand just how big it is, however we have tens of countless Trump citizens that remain to believe that their rights as citizens are under danger by simple merit of having to share the democracy with others,\" Gay claimed in reaction to MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski requiring an examination into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
\" I assume that as lengthy as they see Americanness as the like one with whiteness, this is going to proceed,\" Gay said, looking to race and adding that \"Americanness\" and \"whiteness\" needed to be divided.
\" I got on Long Island this weekend break going to a truly dear friend, and also I was actually disrupted. I saw, you know, loads and lots of pickup with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and also in many cases simply dozens of American flags, which is likewise simply disturbing ... Basically the message was clear: This is my country. This is not your country. I have this,\" Gay said.
She asserted Americans would certainly remain to see points like that until the nation was ready to have the discussion regarding \"whiteness,\" adding her concern that \"a large portion of Americans\" don't understand the risk that it is.
\" That is the actual problem. Since, you know, the Trump voters that are not going to get onboard with democracy, they're a minority. You can marginalize them, lasting. But if we do not take the risk seriously, then I believe we're done in really bad shape,\" she claimed.
Gay got no pushback from the MSNBC hosts or her fellow panelists after making the comments. MSNBC did not reply to requests for comment.
