Ex-Republican Jennifer Rubin is up to now to the left lately that she feels compelled to lecture the liberal media on how they’re too smooth on Republicans. The Washington Submit columnist appeared on MSNBC Saturday to evangelise to the choir about how the media must undertake “new guidelines” and deal with Republicans like pariahs.

Has she been residing underneath a rock?

Visitor internet hosting Saturday’s Velshi, MSNBC contributor Maria Teresa Kumar was speaking about Democrats shifting to censure Arizona Republican Paul Gosar over his violent anti-AOC tweet. This was simply the launching pad to characterize all Republicans as bloodthirsty violent extremists. Their robust proof? Mother and father standing as much as radically left college boards.

How “fascist” of them!

Kumar teed up Rubin to wail about how the GOP has embraced its “autocratic tendencies” (click on “broaden”):

Jennifer, you’re a Republican, right me if I am fallacious, however you then even have Steve Schmidt who’s a Republican now not. David Jolly who’s now not. Invoice Kristol who oftentimes corrects what Republicans are doing, And in addition George Will. You’ve gotten a bunch of Republicans who’re sounding the alarm that what is occurring proper now among the many higher echelons of energy and more and more within the decrease areas of elected authorities from college boards and so forth is asymmetrical to what the get together stands for. How can we speak about what appears to be taking place that’s not solely anti-democratic, but in addition has autocratic tendencies on the finish of the day the place you attempt to intimidate your fellow members throughout the aisle as a result of they don’t agree with you. Are you able to communicate a bit of to that?

Reminding Kumar she was an “ex-Republican” she sneered that the GOP has been “tacitly encouraging and rationalizing violence” for “years.”

Rubin falsely complained that Republicans “whitewashed” the Jan. 6 riot, when really Republicans did condemn the riot, which was a far cry from the endorsement or whitewashing the media and Democrats did in the direction of Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020.

And Rubin had no sympathy for folks indignant at far-left college boards. She herself whitewashed the Nationwide Faculty Boards Affiliation along with Merrick Garland labeling mother and father as home terrorists to gripe about guardian “mood tantrums”:

We’ve an explosion of threats of intimidation at native officers each college boards and voting officers. When the Legal professional Normal of the US says he intends to research it, you might have an absolute mood tantrum from members of the Republicans senate [mocking] ‘How dare you query mother and father!’ It’s not questioning mother and father, it is holding folks chargeable for violent threats and violent motion.

Rubin then rallied the media to deal with Republicans like fascist threats. “They need to cease treating Republicans like regular politicians,” she cried. Including:

I’ve to say the mainstream media is a part of this. They cowl these points and go proper again to having Republicans on discuss exhibits and asking them about different points. Permitting them to air their phony grievances and reasonably than grilling them incessantly about why they tolerate this conduct. That is fascist conduct. That is what fascist regimes do. They use additional exterior the bounds of affordable democratic, small d, strategies of getting their approach. They intimidate, they threaten and use the specter of violence. That is completely insupportable. It has been occurring for years now within the Republican get together…

….I believe you additionally need to have some new floor guidelines for the media. I believe they need to cease treating Republicans like regular politicians. They don’t seem to be regular politicians. This isn’t regular conduct. This can be a get together that spends its complete time cooking up these ridiculous cultural memes, fanning violence and arising with outright lies.

Kumar agreed, even smearing the best as chargeable for mass-murder:

Jennifer, what you might be saying is totally proper. We live in asymmetrical occasions and we have now to name it what it’s. I believe oftentimes folks say they’re simply phrases, however let’s not neglect the Tree of Life tragedy was based mostly on inspiration from the previous president. What we noticed within the El Paso bloodbath was inspiration from the previous president that performed out on-line after which went offline and to tragedy. So you might be completely proper. We’ve to begin creating and speaking about what is occurring earlier than somebody does get harm.

The media will bend over backwards to label all violence the best’s fault, even when inconvenient details get in the best way of their narrative, (such because the El Paso shooter being an eco-extremist.)

MARIA TERESA KUMAR: Becoming a member of me now could be Jennifer Rubin, Washington publish columnist and MSNBC contributor and the writer of Resistance: How girls saved democracy from Donald trump. I need to underscore that one, Jennifer, thanks for becoming a member of me proper now.  I need to ask you, that is the dialog that Jay Rosen spoke about within the New York Occasions in an opinion piece the place he was talked about, he was saying how the conversations we’re having among the many Republican get together are actually so asymmetrical to what’s presently taking place. Jennifer, you’re a Republican, right me if I am fallacious, however you then even have Steve Schmidt who’s a Republican now not. David Jolly who’s now not. Invoice Kristol who oftentimes corrects what Republicans are doing, And in addition George Will. You’ve gotten a bunch of Republicans who’re sounding the alarm that what is occurring proper now among the many higher echelons of energy and more and more within the decrease areas of elected authorities from schoolboards and so forth is asymmetrical to what the get together stands for. How can we speak about what appears to be taking place that’s not solely anti-democratic, but in addition has autocratic tendencies on the finish of the day the place you attempt to intimidate your fellow members throughout the aisle as a result of they don’t agree with you. Are you able to communicate a bit of to that?

JENNIFER RUBIN: Certain. I am an ex-Republican, by the best way. I left the get together.

KUMAR: [chuckling] I needed to remind everybody.

RUBIN: Simply needed to get that straight. Get that on the market. The Republican get together for some time now has been tacitly encouraging and rationalizing violence. You’ll be able to go all the best way again to the 2016 marketing campaign when Donald Trump was on the market encouraging his supporters to slug hecklers and critics and all through the presidency when he would joke to cops about permitting them to tough up suspects. That continued all through January sixth to the purpose the place now just about  the complete Republican get together is whitewashing that affair, um attempting to downplay it. Now you haven’t solely Gosar, however folks like Marjorie Taylor Greene and different individuals who use violent imagery who intimate  violence will end result if the elections do not go their approach. We’ve an explosion of threats of intimidation at native officers each college boards and voting officers. When the Legal professional Normal of the US says he intends to research it, you might have an absolute mood tantrum from members of the Republicans senate [mocking] ‘How dare you query mother and father!’ It’s not questioning mother and father, it is holding folks chargeable for violent threats and violent motion.  Why wasn’t the congress member interviewed by the Secret Service? Which is meant to take critical even humorous, supposedly, pictorials of the assaults of the president or assaults on public officers. That is completely untenable.

I’ve to say the mainstream media is a part of this. They cowl these points and go proper again to having Republicans on discuss exhibits and asking them about different points. Permitting them to air their phony grievances and reasonably than grilling them incessantly about why they tolerate this conduct. That is fascist conduct. That is what fascist regimes do. They use additional exterior the bounds of affordable democratic, small d, strategies of getting their approach. They intimidate, they risk and use the specter of violence. That is completely insupportable. It has been occurring for years now within the Republican get together. I believe, primary, the Home ought to do one thing about it. By the best way, I believe they may get a few Republican votes. Each Congresswoman [Liz] Cheney and Congressman Adam Kinzinger will associate with it which I believe could be very wholesome.

I believe you additionally need to have some new floor guidelines for the media. I believe they need to cease treating Republicans like regular politicians. They don’t seem to be regular politicians. This isn’t regular conduct. This can be a get together that spends its complete time cooking up these ridiculous cultural memes, fanning violence and arising with outright lies. So the place is the media–

KUMAR: Jennifer, what you might be saying is totally proper. We live in asymmetrical occasions and we have now to name it what it’s. I believe oftentimes folks say they’re simply phrases, however let’s not neglect the Tree of Life tragedy was based mostly on inspiration from the previous president. What we noticed within the El Paso bloodbath was inspiration from the previous president that performed out on-line after which went offline and to tragedy. So you might be completely proper. We’ve to begin creating and speaking about what is occurring earlier than somebody does get harm.
