Scarborough: January 6 = Kristallnacht, Female Fox Hosts Played With ‘Eva Braun’ Barbies

Political News

Mika Brzezinski Joe Scarborough George Conway MSNBC Morning Joe 3-28-24Who calls MSNBC a “news” channel? Joe Scarborough dug deep into his bag of Trump-Hitler analogies on today’s Morning Joe.

Scarborough began by analogizing the January 6 riot to Kristallnacht, the 1938 anti-Jewish pogrom led by the Nazi SS. He claimed “you can hear on Fox News people saying that nothing was wrong with January 6th.”

They’re like Nazi newspapers: ”Were there Nazi newspapers in the 1930s, saying, you know, Kristallnacht, there’s some people that actually think that was a bad thing?!”

Kristallnacht was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Jews, and the damage or destruction of hundreds of synagogues and thousands of Jewish businesses. It is seen as the precursor to The Final Solution–the Holocaust. To in any way equate this riot to a pogrom is wildly inaccurate and repulsive.

But this is MSNBC, where they air lunatic pundits who claim “9/11 is nothing compared to January 6.

Later, Scarborough unloaded his usual braggadocio about how he reacts when “somebody makes the mistake of saying, I used to like you when you were a conservative.” Mika said “Please don’t do that.” He bragged that he’d tell conservatives that they’re liberal if they’re voting for Trump and all his big spending (as if Democrats opposed massive pandemic relief, and other spending). 

Mika Brzezinski Joe Scarborough George Conway MSNBC Morning Joe 3-28-24 iiHe boasted to George Conway: “You and I were conservatives, and are conservatives, but we were conservatives when some of these women on Fox News who call us liberals were still playing with their, their Barbies. Of course, Eva Braun edition.” Conway found Scarborough slurring Fox News women as proto-Nazis hilariously funny.

He kept on bragging: “We were fighting for conservative values. We were fighting to balance the budget, to reform welfare, we were fighting to hold Democratic administrations accountable when they were in grade school and have done it our entire life.”

So, sexism, ageism, and a Nazi slur — quite the three-fer, Joe! 

It’s a little much to hear these people still mocking the conservatives because Ronna McDaniel said sometimes you “take one for the team” and don’t state your own opinion. “No convictions….no core values,” said Mika.

Joe and Mika backed Trump enthusiastically in 2015, and then turned and ran the other way. Now, every day, they aim to please their number one fan, President Biden. But they think other people are just saying what the boss wants to hear. 

Here’s the transcript.

Morning Joe

MIKA BRZEZINSKI: I think, first of all, the reason for these gag orders, as Jonathan Lemire pointed out, is because of the fear of violence, of retribution. And Donald Trump is proven on that point in many different ways. We could talk for four hours about all the different ways he has threatened people.

And then, of course, we have January 6th. And I just have to say, I was watching one of his networks, cause I like to see what Trump voters are hearing from places that call themselves news networks. And they were talking about January 6th in a discussion, in a discourse — about us, actually. And saying that we want to put out there that January 6th was more than just a little thing. And that is the problem with the discourse.

JOE SCARBOROUGH: I, I, I: let’s just come out and say it. You hear, you can hear on Fox News people saying that nothing was wrong with January 6th.

MIKA: You can have some — yeah, if someone believes it was a little thing, you can still talk about it.

SCARBOROUGH: It wasn’t a big deal. And others saying, that network, you know, they actually sit there and people who watch that network think January 6th was an important event. 

And you’re, you’re sitting there going, wait a second! 

MIKA: More than a little thing.

SCARBOROUGH: Were there Nazi newspapers in the 1930s, saying, you know, Kristallnacht. There’s some people that actually think that was a bad thing?!

The fact that Donald Trump has numbed people so much that the same people who said it was a horrible thing on January 7th are now coming back into the cult, back into the folds, going, you know, some people actually are stupid enough to say that that was a really terrible thing. Mind-blowing to me.

MIKA: That can’t be the debate.

SCARBOROuGH: Mind-blowing to me that they are actually able to say that on a network that has paid dearly for election lies.
. . . 

MIKA: Their crime, in their party, is that they spoke their mind. And the problem we’re seeing right now is, you have a lot of people on the media that leans to the right, and has that take, is that they are right now cutting down people for speaking their mind. They are right —

SCARBOROUGH: — But they don’t really know what —

MIKA: They are right now cutting down people who speak their minds despite who pays them.

SCARBOROUGH: They —

MIKA: And they are —

SCARBOROUGH: [Getting annoyed by Mika] Yeah.

MIKA: And they proving that they take one for the team every day. [Scarborough repeatedly jams ballpoint pen against chin in frustration.] You don’t know what you’re watching.

SCARBOROUGH: And, and, and they actually admitted over the past week. They said —

MIKA: Time and time again.

SCARBOROUGH: They said, I would never say anything that my boss doesn’t want  –

MIKA: Insubordination.

SCARBOROUGH: — me to say. I would never speak my mind – 

MIKA: Wait. 

SCARBOROUGH: They literally are on the air —

MIKA: [Extended but unintelligible interruption.] I’m so confused.

SCARBOROUGH: And they assured the viewers —

MIKA: [Unintelligible interruption] —

SCARBORuGH: — That  they would never speak their mind —

MIKA: Ever!

SCARBOROUGH: — if their boss didn’t want them —

MIKA: No convictions!

SCARBOROUGH: — speaking their mind.

MIKA: No core values.

SCARBOROUGH: And that’s, [points back and forth to Mika and himself] we’re speaking serially here, because we believe it a lot.  That’s one of the reasons why —

MIKA: Please keep talking about it. [Joe stares angrily at Mika.] Sorry, go ahead. I was just talking to my friends over there.

SCARBOROUGH: That’s one of the reasons why —

. . . 

If I’m walking through an airport, and somebody makes the mistake of saying, I used to like you when you were a conservative —

MIKA: Please don’t do that. It’s not good.

SCARBOROUGH: I’m like, really, really? All right. And then I go down the list of issues. Where are you on this? Where are you on this? Well, I’ll tell you what, you’re, you’re a liberal on spending if you support Donald Trump. You’re a liberal. And you just go down the list of things. 

Mika Brzezinski Joe Scarborough George Conway MSNBC Morning Joe 3-28-24 ii It is so funny, George. You and I were conservatives, and are conservatives, but we were conservatives when some of these women on Fox News who call us liberals were still playing with their, their Barbies. Of course, Eva Braun edition. [George Conway laughs hysterically.] 

We were fighting for conservative values. We were fighting to balance the budget, to reform welfare, we were fighting to hold Democratic administrations accountable when they were in grade school and have done it our entire life. 

What’s the difference? When an anti-democratic, fascist-leaning guy wants to be President of the United States — you know what? We’re Americans first. Let’s work with other people who support democracy.
