MSNBC pundit and former GOP Congressman Joe Scarborough openly called for censorship by saying the NRA’s channel should be banned from video streaming services.
“Lawyers from @Apple @Amazon @Google and @RokuPlayer should watch these disturbing videos and remove this channel,” Scarborough tweeted. “They incite violence and could make anyone streaming them liable.”
Ironically, Scarborough was a Second-Amendment enthusiast when he was a Republican Congressman representing Florida from 1995 to 2001.
Scarborough left the GOP in July 2017 after President Trump called out his employee/co-host/fiancée Mika Brzezinski’s botched plastic surgery. At the time, both Joe and Mika vehemently denied she got a facelift. Trump made the remarks after Mika and Joe repeatedly bashed him and mocked his appearance.
Ever since going public with his workplace romance, Scarborough has joined the leftist “resist” movement to obstruct and sabotage President Trump.
Naturally, Scarborough’s anti-NRA stance mimicked that of his girlfriend Mika, who pressured FedEx to boycott the NRA after several car rental companies severed ties with the National Rifle Association.
I hope @FedEx does the right thing and stops propping up the NRA. They incite violence with their ads and attack America’s law enforcement officers. I support businesses that support our American heroes and will not support businesses who make their jobs harder. #USA

For its part, the NRA vowed to fight back at liberals who are blaming them for the Parkland, Florida school shooting while ignoring the epic incompetence and negligence of the Broward Country Sheriff’s Office and the FBI.
Bombshell reports reveal that local and federal law enforcement repeatedly ignored credible tips alerting them that shooter Nikolas Cruz was homicidal, mentally disturbed, and in possession of a massive cache deadly weapons.
Signs of a potential school shooter:
1) Tells people online that he’s going to be a school shooter
2) Messages classmates with death threats
3) Parents report that he has “put a gun to others’ heads in past.”
4) Authorities visit 39 times, 2 FBI tips
YET FBI DID NOTHING.

Meanwhile, Twitter clapped back at Joe Scarborough’s hypocrisy and contempt for the First and Second Amendments.
Weekly Standard writer Mark Hemingway (the husband of Federalist senior editor Mollie Hemingway) said Scarborough’s call for censorship is a dangerous slippery slope to a total collapse of civil liberties.
“They never stop at undermining just one of the Bill of Rights,” he tweeted. “By the time they’re done, you’ll have a soldier sleeping on your couch.”

Daily Caller deputy editor Scott Greer sarcastically remarked that “this is exactly” what Joe’s hero, Ronald Reagan, would have wanted.

DailyWire writer Ryan Saavedra was shocked at Scarborough’s open call for censorship. In the United States of America. In 2018.
“MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough is openly advocating for censorship,” Saavedra tweeted.

Radio host Mike Opelka dared Joe to walk the walk, not just talk the talk. “Disarm your NBC security. #YouFirst,” he tweeted.

While we’re calling for a boycott of the NRA for “inciting violence,” liberals should also call for a wholesale boycott of Hollywood, which (using liberal logic) promotes mass violence through its unending stream of violent movies and TV shows.
CNN and MSNBC should also stop providing wall-to-wall coverage of mass shooters, since elevating them to worldwide fame encourages copycats, according to multiple media studies.
