今すぐ, MSNBC’S MARA GAY: ‘DISTURBINGTO SEE ‘DOZENS OF AMERICAN FLAGSON TRUCKS IN LONG ISLAND

Fox News contributor Leo Terrell slammed Gay forplaying the race cardbut didn’t expect anything different considering her places of employment.

That’s what liberals and progressives do,” Terell said. “People are responding in outrage, including myself, regarding her attack on the America flag … she doesn’t get a pass because she is Black.

テレル, a civil rights attorney for 30 年, said the flag and what it stands for has afforded her the ability to enjoy and express her First Amendment rights.

“しかしながら, that right of expression works both ways and she should not hide behind her race,” Terrell said. “When liberals and progressive have no argument they resort to the race card in an effort to turn down the heat.

Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock was equally peeved and suggested the Gray Lady board member should leave the country if she doesn’t appreciate it.

Mara Gay is old enough to know the difference between the American flag and the Confederate flag. Tens of thousands of Black patriots have died in battle to defend the Stars and Stripes. What a shame that she does not appreciate this,” Murdock said.

If the American flag makes her so sick, she should move to another country, where she won’t have to see it,” Murdock continued. “Should she make that decision, I hereby pledge to buy her a one-way plane ticket to whatever nation will make her happier than the United States of America.

Gay’s comments on MSNBC’sMorning JoeTuesday sparked ridicule.

I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, ええと, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [ママ] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing … Essentially the message was clear. This is my country. This is not your country. I own this,” 彼女は言いました.

She went on to blameWhitenessfor the actions she observed and claimed Americans would continue to observe such behavior until Americans were ready to have a conversation about it.

Conservative radio host Larry Elder also mocked Gay forwhipping out the race cardwhen faced with criticism over her comment.

“何? A Black New York Times writer whipping out the race card! Say it ain’t so!! Ahh, the race card. Suitable for use as a sword and a shield. Don’t leave home without,” Edler told Fox News via text message.
