Jason Johnson, that “fresh, unflappable, [and, ahem] objective” political pundit and professor of communication at Morgan State University, was brought to the airwaves on Friday to lash out at President Trump regarding the recent mail bombs sent to prominent Democrats.
As reported by Newsbusters, Johnson referred to the president as a “terrorist sympathizer,” and added Trump has “always shown a sympathy or dismissiveness towards terrorism.”
Whew! I guess we should count our blessings that Mr. Trump hasn’t yet sent billions in cash to a country which has been on the US’s terror radar for decades, eh?
“It’s good to see that the FBI and national security agencies continue to do their job with vigilance despite the fact that they’ve been bludgeoned by this president for the last year for supposed incompetence and corruption,” Johnson told MSNBC host Nicole Wallace. “Our lives, as much as I may have criticisms of how law enforcement operates in this country, they are still our line of defense against maniacs and terrorists out there.”
But I have to say, Nicolle, and this has always been a problem with this President. He has always shown a sympathy or dismissiveness towards terrorism. He is a terrorist sympathizer. I mean given the way he responded to what happened in Charlottesville, given how he responded to Khashoggi, given how he puts what happened today in context of how it affects the midterm elections, we don’t have leadership in this country when it comes to domestic terrorism. This president foments it as much as he is occasionally forced to speak against it.
Newsbusters notes in its report that Johnson tried to rationalize last year’s shooting of GOP Representative Steve Scalise by a Bernie Sanders supporter by attempting to link Scalise to white nationalists.
This is just what he did this past summer to police officers; Johnson compared law enforcement to white nationalists while defending the political violence of Antifa.
