Leftwing Newsletter the Washington Post Calls Mitch McConnell a "Russian Asset" and Then Morning Joe and the MSNBC FunBunch Start Calling Him "Moscow Mitch"

Remember all the lectures we used to get about the tone of our rhetoric?

Oh what am I talking about, "remember," "used to." They're still lecturing us about tone and extremist rhetoric that can incite violence even while they're branding the Senate Majority Leader a Russia agent.

It's not that they've forgotten about James Hodgkinson. It's just that their fans of his work.

Mitch McConnell discussed their tone and rhetoric.

"I don't normally take the time to respond to critics in the media when they have no clue what they're talking about," McConnell said. "But, this modern-day McCarthyism is toxic, and damaging, because of the way it warps our entire public discourse.


"Over the last several days I was called unpatriotic, un-American, and essentially treasonous by a couple of left-wing pundits on the basis of bald-faced lies," McConnell continued. "I was accused of aiding and abetting the very man I've singled out as an adversary and opposed for nearly 20 years: Vladimir Putin."


McConnell continued: "Now, at least [MSNBC] is honest about what it offers, and it isn't journalism. Immediately after the host finished his angry string of false claims [calling] me un-American, another panelist chimed in to applaud the remarks and here's what he said: 'We're at war. It's time for the Democrats to wake up and we're not necessarily going to play fair.'"

That was Donny Deutsch.

"Let's remember how deep MSNBC waded into the conspiratorial fever swamp over the past 2 years," McConnell added. "They gave airtime to one guest who has publicly tweeted … that a former White House adviser was close to being executed for espionage and that Chief Justice Roberts had sent the marshal of the Supreme Court to the White House to threaten the president."

Trump called the Oligarch Talking Points dispatch also called The Washington Post "a Russian asset" itself.

Donald Trump issued an attack on The Washington Post after one of its columnist called Mitch McConnell a 'Russian asset'

'I think the Washington Post is a Russian asset by comparison,' Trump shot back
He admitted he did not read the column but called the Post the 'fake news' that was only working 'for the benefit of Amazon'

The president said the newspaper should apologize to McConnell

Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, bought The Washington Post in 2013

'Mitch McConnell is a Russian asset,' the columnist wrote. 'This doesn't mean he's a spy, but neither is it a flip accusation'

The allegedly "respectable" left is fomenting a lot of James Hodgkinson style violence, and seems to relish doing so.
