Tiffany Cross, a panelist on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” show, declared the MAGA hat to be comparable to the swastika and said it’s high time the media start calling supporters of the president for what they allegedly are – racists.

Cross’s comments came up in a discussion that started with host Joy Reid claiming Trump was stoking racial tensions via his verbal attacks on the “Squad.” Cross upped the ante:

I think that this is something that his supporters — and we have to start calling his supporters racists as well. That MAGA hat – that MAGA symbol has come to represent something. It is the new Nazi symbol – it is the new hood, the Klan hood.”

Nothing like minimizing the Holocaust and those who suffered at the hands of real racism under the Klan. But then, this is your modern Democratic party. They spit on the memories of those who have actually suffered for the sole purpose of scoring cheap political points with low-information voters.

Cross has a history of ferreting out hidden meanings and dog whistles to justify her perverse conviction that every opposing viewpoint has to be racist. In previous panel segments, she even suggested the word Chicago is racist when discussing the Second Amendment.

“Every time you try to bring up the issue of mass shootings and preventing them, you get the reflexive ‘Chicago.’,” Cross said. “I think with the Republican Party, Chicago is their euphemism or subtext for ‘black,’ and we should just call that out for what it is.”

Here’s one she missed: Tiffany Cross is a euphemism for an ignorant race-baiter. Synonyms Democrat, liberal, and MSNBC host.
