Chuck Todd is a left leaning commentator on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’ Todd is now under fire for ‘softballing’ an interview with Dartmouth Professor Mark Bray. Bray is a publicly announced backer of Antifa and their violent tactic which he claims is in response to the KKK and neo-Nazis. Bray didn’t mention of course that his Nazi thugs have gone after peaceful Trump backers.
Bray for his alleged scholarship doesn’t know the difference between the KKK Nazis and the Antifa Nazis – both the same. As for Todd he’s just another narcissistic talking head who doesn’t give a damn about the safety of the American public – but then he works for NBC.
Bray and his fellow antifa Nazis are a danger to American citizens, national security and as such should be treated as domestic terrorists. Now lets see if Sessions has the balls to go after them….WFM
Chuck Todd under fire for ‘softball’ interviews with Antifa ally
Fox News, August 21, 2017
Anchor Chuck Todd is under fire for his “softball” treatment of an Antifa sympathizer on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” with conservative media watchdog Brent Bozell accusing him of allowing a “radical to promote domestic terrorism with little push back.”
Todd, following a similar interview on his daily MSNBC show last week, hosted a brief debate Sunday on the radical left-wing group’s violent tactics. Speaking in support of Antifa was Dartmouth professor Mark Bray, who justified what he described as the group’s “self-defense” tactics as a “legitimate response to white supremacist and neo-Nazi violence.”
The group, however, has a history of attacking not just neo-Nazis but conservative and pro-Trump crowds in general. Its allies infamously clashed with Trump supporters in a melee earlier this year in Berkeley, Calif., leading to the cancellation of a Breitbart editor’s speech.
In that riot, protesters broke windows,
smoke bombs and started a bonfire outside the building that would have hosted the speech.
Bozell, founder of the Media Research Center, blasted Todd and NBC for giving a platform for such extremist groups as Antifa.
e said in a statement posted to Twitter:
“Violent leftists have broken into the mainstream and Chuck Todd is guilty of aiding and abetting. It is abhorrent that NBC and Todd believe it acceptable to normalize extremist groups like Antifa which use terror to silence their opposition.
“After last Wednesday’s softball interview, Chuck Todd had the opportunity to correct his mistake but instead chose to again allow a radical to promote domestic terrorism with little push back.
“Can you imagine Chuck Todd inviting a member of a militant right-wing group on his show to rationalize violence against the left? NBC must cease giving legitimacy to supporters of this violent left-wing movement immediately.”
Fox News has reached out to NBC for comment.
Todd’s own Twitter feed reflected similar complaints, with critics accusing the show of giving a platform to the promotion of violence. Todd, in introducing Bray, did describe him as part of a “very small minority who is defending the idea of violence.”
