A reporter for MSNBC and the New York Times showed her true colors while spending the weekend in Long Island, remarking in disdain about the number of American flags she saw.

Journalist Mara Gay stated she was distressed by what she called expletives on the trucks against President Biden and a large number of American flags outside of urban and solidly blue areas.

 “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.

While on a talk segment with MSNBC posted to Twitter by Tom Elliot, she said Democrats need to metaphorically take the law into their own hands when it comes to explaining that such behaviors as dissent and flag display are divisive.

“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, erroneously describing the US as a democracy. “I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with whiteness, this is going to continue.”

Referring to the January Capitol Building Riot as an “insurrection,” Gay went on to imply that those not aligned with the left are a threat to America as a nation. 

“That is the real concern. Because, you know, the Trump voters who are not going to get onboard with democracy, they’re a minority. You can marginalize them, long-term. But if we don’t take the threat seriously, then I think we’re all in really bad shape,” she said.
