Mara Gay is on the New York Times editorial board. She’s also an MSNBC ‘analyst’ which apparently translates to having a free platform to spread whatever craziness pops into her head.

Gay was off to the races this morning on “Morning Joe,” as she claimed Democrats were not taking the Trump “threat” seriously and that the Democrats should go ahead on their own and form a commission on the ‘insurrection’ without the Republicans (apparently “democracy” to her means operating by fiat, without opposing viewpoints).

This is not your country. I own this.”

Yikes. This is a woman who has a pretty big platform. Yet, flying American flags is now somehow racist and evil? Excuse me, but if they’re American, it IS their country, there’s nothing inherent in that that implies “this is not your country.” If you’re reading that into it, that’s
