Erick Erickson: MSNBC Hosts Guilty of Inciting Violence Against Conservatives

“Their extremist rhetoric at a time progressive activists have already turned violent, is just increasing the temperature.”

MSNBC is often criticized by conservative media members for its liberal bias. Erick Erickson believes the outlet should be chastised for inciting violence against conservatives.

In a post on his Substack, Erickson argued that two MSNBC viewers have attempted “mass political assassination” in the past decade. He also alleged that the network is guilty of the very things it accuses former President Donald Trump of doing.

“Two men were inspired by the depraved hysterics of the women at MSNBC to attempt the mass assassination of conservatives,” Erickson wrote. “If the people at Fox News regularly engaged in this discourse, both Brian Stelter and Oliver Darcy would cover it nonstop and denounce Fox News’s subtle calls for the assassination of whichever Democrats they went on about.

“Donald Trump does not have the unique ability to drive people to violence. MSNBC hosts have already driven two men to attempt mass assassination. Now, their extremist rhetoric at a time progressive activists have already turned violent, is just increasing the temperature.”

Erick Erickson went on to argue that the comments from hosts like Joy Reid and Nicolle Wallace insinuate they’d like to see Trump be assassinated.

“The network that has insisted words matter and that people can be driven to violence through others’ words is increasingly dialing up the hysteria as Trump’s poll numbers go up. They would never admit it, but we can acknowledge the network really hopes Trump eats a bullet,” Erickson posited. “They can deny it. But a network that parades daily the terribles of a future Trump Administration and how he must be stopped because he is a unique existential threat will have to forgive us if we do not believe them.”

“Words carry weight. Words uttered at MSNBC inspired the attempted mass assassination of Republican members of Congress. Knowing they have that power, you’d think they would be more responsible unless that’s what they want.”

Bob and Kelli Phillips have hosted Texas Country Reporter for decades before hosting their final show Sunday. Now, they’ll take a new show and podcast to KRLD in Dallas.

The new Texas lifestyle and storytelling program — On the Road with Kelli & Bob — will begin on the Audacy-owned all-new station on Sunday, June 2nd, and will be heard from 2-3 PM. The show will also be available throughout the state and a podcast of the program will be available on the Audacy app.

“We’ve been telling stories across Texas for almost 50 years and did not know how other people from other states would embrace us calling in and asking to tell their stories,” Bob Phillips told the Houston Chronicle. “While doing so, we have had a great response and have heard a common thread among everyone we talk to. When we approach them, we say we like to tell positive, uplifting stories about people doing great things — and what we hear the most is ‘Good, we need more of that in the world.’”

The husband and wife duo sold their long-running Texas Country Reporter show in December 2021, and stayed on until a new host was found. J.B. Sauceda will host the newest season of the program, the 53rd in its history, when the program resumes in September.

Erick Erickson has never been shy about his original disdain for former President Donald Trump. And while he is often mocked for his views on the cult-like figure, he’s comfortable in his stance.

In a post on social media, Erick Erickson argued that his place in the conservative media landscape isn’t affected by his beliefs or views, despite the pushback from those both in media and in politics.

“I have become the object of scorn for some on the right who think we are in a post-constitutional order in need of a dictatorship to bend the nation in our direction,” Erickson wrote. “I’m okay with being the object of scorn from morons.”

In an era in news/talk radio that has seen many hosts rise in prominence for their support of former President Trump, Erickson has taken the opposite approach and has found as much or more success than others in the genre. His nationally syndicated program, which originates from 95.5 WSB in Atlanta, is now heard on dozens of stations across the nation.

As the trial against former President Donald Trump (R) continues, Salem Radio Network host Dr. Sebastian Gorka is in New York to report on the happenings during The Mike Gallagher Show.

On Tuesday morning, Gorka was joined by Rep. Troy Nehls (R-TX), Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX), and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick in a show of support for the former President.

Sebastian Gorka served in the Trump White House as Deputy Assistant to the President and Strategist. However, he departed the White House after seven months a week after Steve Bannon exited.

Gorka — who has called the proceedings against the former President a “kangaroo court” — will report on the latest events of the trial during the nationally syndicated Mike Gallagher Show, which like Gorka’s America First program, airs on the Salem Radio Network.
