You’ve probably never heard of her, but she sits on the editorial board of the New York Times and is a contributor to MSNBC. And, here’s the kicker, she’s “disturbed” to see “dozens of American flags” flown by Donald Trump supporters.
“MSNBC contributor Mara Gay said Tuesday that she was “disturbed” to see “dozens of American flags” flown by Donald Trump supporters during a weekend trip to Long Island, New York,” according to the New York Post. [emphasis added]
“The left-wing editorial board member for The New York Times was also distressed by what she called expletives on the trucks against President Biden, describing the flag-flying Trump supporters as sending a clear message: ‘This is my country … not your country. I own this.’
“‘The reality is here that we have a large percentage of the American population — I don’t know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters who continue to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others,’ Gay said in response to MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski calling for an investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
“‘I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with Whiteness, this is going to continue,’ Gay said, turning to race and adding that “Americanness” and “Whiteness” needed to be separated.
“‘I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] 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,’ Gay said.” [emphasis added]
