“Did a MSNBC commentator just advocate for gun violence against NRA board members?”
MSNBC continues to pass Susan Del Percio off as a “Republican strategist.” In fact, her last strategery gig was as an adviser to Andrew Cuomo, the liberal Democrat governor of New York.
In any case, when it comes to strategy, Del Percio’s specialty seems to be recommending personal attacks on Republicans and other opponents.
In July, our Gregory Price caught Del Percio recommending that constituents “attack” and “scare” their Republican congressmen for purposes of forcing them to support a piece of Democrat legislation.
Appearing on MSNBC today to discuss Saturday’s West Texas shootings, Del Percio took things an ugly step further. She advised gun control advocates to play “tough, dirty pool” with individual members of the NRA board. “Go after them and their businesses,” urged Del Percio; “hold them accountable in their hometowns.” Yes, there’s nothing like ruining someone’s livelihood and making them a pariah in their hometown to make them see the light!
And in a particularly ghoulish twist, Del Percio suggested that the only way to get congressmen to come around on gun control will be when a “critical mass” has been personally affected by mass shootings. She noted that, so far, “we have seen [only] one congressman get there.” Sick.
