One MSNBC guest made this crazy claim when a GOP Senator criticized Biden’s SCOTUS pick

Far-left pundits and elected officials are often especially hyperbolic in their criticism of political opponents.

This is self-defeating, because if every opponent is tarred as a Kremlin stooge or someone itching to bring back Jim Crow laws, the accusations don’t hold sway.

MSNBC is home to these nutty leftists and now one guest made this crazy claim when a GOP Senator criticized Biden’s SCOTUS pick.

Elie Mystal, the “justice correspondent” for the far-left The Nation appeared on MSNBC over the weekend.

Mystal told host Tiffany Cross, without evidence, that Republican Sen. Josh Hawley is “trying to get” the Biden administration’s Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson “killed” after the GOP Senator criticized the SCOTUS pick’s eyebrow-raising judiciary record.

Sen. Hawley has raised questions about what he sees as Jackson’s record of leniency toward sex offenders that lets child predators “off the hook” with “beyond” soft-on-crime treatment both as a judge and policymaker.

Hawley said, “Judge Jackson has a pattern of letting child porn offenders off the hook for their appalling crimes, both as a judge and as a policymaker. She’s been advocating for it since law school. This goes beyond ‘soft on crime.’ I’m concerned that this a record that endangers our children.”

But the Senator wasn’t playing gotcha or engaging in the type of hyperbole that is all too common on far-left MSNBC.

Instead, Hawley quoted from Jackson’s own writing, saying, “As far back as her time in law school, Judge Jackson has questioned making convicts register as sex offenders – saying it leads to ‘stigmatization and ostracism.’ She’s suggested public policy is driven by a ‘climate of fear, hatred & revenge’ against sex offenders.’”

Mystal said, “What Josh Hawley is doing when he tries to do this – is he’s trying to get her killed. He is trying to get violence done against a Supreme Court nominee. And we know this because when these people go off, making their ridiculous claims about child pornography, we know some of their people show up violently. So like, that’s where this stuff is coming from, and that’s – so you need to know where it’s coming from, and Democrats need to know how to defend her from this stuff instead of letting her, leaving her out there on her own.”

Curiously, Mystal and other leftists weren’t anywhere near as concerned about a nominee’s well-being when extremist ideologues (with the help of a corrupt and compromised corporate media) conspired to smear Trump’s SCOTUS pick, Brett Kavanaugh, as a serial rapist – with zero evidence.

Hawley and other Republicans didn’t have to stoop nearly that low – and are only citing Jackson’s own words.

Sometimes the truth hurts, especially when you are way out on a limb with public opinion.

As previous nominations to the Supreme Court have shown, being “qualified” isn’t the only factor at play when it comes to being confirmed.

If the Democrats don’t like how President Biden’s nominee is being treated, they need only look in the mirror to see who is to blame.
