Showing as a visitor on Monday’s Deadline: White Home, MSNBC nationwide affairs analyst John Heilemann threw stones within the MSNBC glass home as he hypocritically slammed the GOP over Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene making a kooky comparability between sporting masks throughout the pandemic and the Holocaust, and Home Republican Chief Kevin McCarthy had but to sentence her. (He known as her statements “appalling” on Tuesday morning.)
Choosing up on the hyperbolic feedback made by one among greater than 200 Home Republicans, Heilemann declared that the Republican celebration is nothing however a “massive, ugly hate machine,” and that “the one factor that runs the GOP is hate.”
However, just a few years in the past, as he appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe present to debate the Donald Trump administration separating youngsters from unlawful immigrant mother and father, Heilemann passively went together with host Joe Scarborough when he likened the scenario to Jewish youngsters being taken to gasoline chambers in Nazi demise camps.
In his evaluation on Monday afternoon, Heilemann repeatedly used the phrase “hate” as he asserted:
The whole lot of the factor that animates now, the Republican celebration, which is to say, the factor that George Will is speaking about, what’s the Republican celebration? It is now its basest a part of its base, and the basest a part of its base is animated by hate. And it is very exhausting to make a distinction between one type of hate and one other type of hate.. In case you’re Kevin McCarthy, you begin denouncing hate, the place are you going to cease?
As a result of when you begin to denounce this type of hate, and you are taking a stand, you now — you are now surrounded by every kind of hate, and the one factor that runs the GOP is hate. It is now an enormous big hate machine. so after all he cannot denounce her for this as a result of as soon as he denounces her for this, the place are you going to cease? You’d need to denounce the complete celebration as a result of that is all it’s. That is all it’s — an enormous, ugly hate machine.
Host Nicolle Wallace then gave no pushback as she approvingly thanked him for becoming a member of in on the section and wrapped up.
However, on June 15, 2018, Heilemann had no downside with absurd Holocaust comparisons as he sat subsequent to Scarborough, who claimed:
I do know youngsters are being marched away to showers. I do know they’re being marched away to showers — or they’re being instructed they’re, identical to the Nazis that mentioned that they had been taking folks to showers, after which they by no means got here again. So you’d assume that they’d use one other trick like, “Hey, bought a Slurpee room over there — we will take them to get them a Slurpee.”
I imply, that will be higher than “We’re marching them to the showers — they will be proper again,” after which they by no means come again. However right here, John Heilemann, they’re simply mendacity. And so they’re saying, “It is legislation — now we have to do it.” And now they’re bringing within the Bible whereas they’re mendacity…
Heilemann went together with Scarborough’s commentary with out objecting:
JOHN HEILEMANN: I believe there is a Commandment in opposition to the mendacity factor, proper? Is not that one of many 10?
SCARBOROUGH: There’s a Commandment in opposition to the mendacity.
HEILEMANN: Bearing false witness factor?
SCARBOROUGH: It is not biblically based mostly that you just rip youngsters from the fingers of moms. In reality —
HEILEMANN: Not in both the New or Outdated Testomony.
Heilemann’s not non secular. Scarborough made the obscene gasoline chamber reference a number of instances over a few days.
