MSNBC Guest Proposes New Patriot Act to Fight ‘Right-Wing Extremists’

News & Politics

Tuesday’s edition of MSNBC’s Deadline: White House, (aka Rich, White, Liberal, Wine Mom Story Hour), said the quiet part out loud when guest and left-wing podcast host Paul Riechkhoff openly advocated for a new Patriot Act to be enacted for the sole purpose of going after his fellow Americans who he describes as “right wing extremists” (which these days MSNBC considers to be anyone to the left of Adam Kinzinger.)

“I wouldn’t dismiss it as just something that only people on the right or watching Fox News can latch on to. We are in a battle for hearts and minds, and there people who are on the fence,” Riechkhoff said when discussing the threat he thinks is posed by Americans he disagrees with. 

“You’ve got to have leaders and messages and messengers and programs to get to those people that bring them over into community organizing and into non-profit organizations and away from the Patriot Front and the Oath Keepers,” he added. 

Meanwhile, host Nicolle Wallace just sat there and agreed with her guest’s proposal to weaponize the federal government against half the country and lump them in with extreme fringe groups like “Patriot Front” or “Oath Keepers.”

Doubling down, Riechkhoff said that “the parallels of 9/11 are important,” because “After 9/11, the laws didn’t work. They made massive changes to respond to a new threat.” 

“I think we have to face the fact that many of our structures, laws, and policies may not work. After 9/11 we created the Department of Homeland Security. There was the Patriot Act,” he added. 

Riechkhoff claimed “I think we need the same kind of tectonic shift.” 

“It’s got to be much more than see something say something. But maybe our laws need to change to respond to the fact that someone like Mike Flynn, the former national security director, is openly calling for violence consistently,” he added. 

This is the kind of rhetoric that could get people killed. But MSNBC doesn’t care. Their goal is to demonize half the country and call them domestic terrorists or “far-right extremists” to gin up their rabid leftist audience and spike their sagging ratings.

PAUL RIECHKHOFF: I wouldn’t dismiss it as just something that only people on the right or watching Fox News can latch on to. We are in a battle for hearts and minds, and there people who are on the fence. You’ve got to have leaders and messages and messengers and programs to get to those people that bring them over into community organizing and into non-profit organizations and away from the Patriot Front and the Oath Keepers. 

NICOLLE WALLACE: Yeah.

RIECHKHOFF: And I think the parallels of 9/11 are important. We’ve talked about this before. After 9/11, the laws didn’t work. They made massive changes to respond to a new threat. I think we have to face the fact that many of our structures, laws, and policies may not work. After 9/11 we created the Department of Homeland Security. There was the Patriot Act. There was massive change in our entire society to face the number one threat, or at least what was communicated as the number one threat. I think we need the same kind of tectonic shift. It’s got to be much more than see something say something. But maybe our laws need to change to respond to the fact that someone like Mike Flynn, the former national security director, is openly calling for violence consistently.
