MSNBC’s Figliuzzi Again Compares Trump to Those Recruiting Radical Islamic Terrorists

‘What I see is uncanny parallels between the radicalization you see in Islamic, violent extremism, radicalization to commit jihad, go to jihad’

EXCERPT:

FIGLIUZZI: “What I see is uncanny parallels between the radicalization you see in Islamic, violent extremism, radicalization to commit jihad, to go to jihad, and then what we’re seeing in the white hate movement. It is radicalization, and so how do you stop it? We’re talking about health care, we’re talking about mental health, we’re talking about guns. And yes, we need to talk about all that, but one way to stop it is for that driving radicalizer — on the Islamic side, that Muslim cleric that’s playing the beheading videos and radicalizing you — that guy has to come out and say I renounce this, I reject it, I was wrong, I don’t need you anymore. Stop it. It’s not American. And we didn’t hear that today. This press conference today by the President, to use a baseball phrase, was a swing and a miss. He spoke in collective language and passive voice, not in first person. He didn’t say I renounce and reject, he said, instructed us to reject it, the nation must condemn racism. Well, guess what? We condemned it already. But how about you? You are the radicalizer in chief. We didn’t hear that today.”
