Mara Gay Ashamed Of ‘Americanness’: ‘Disturbing” To See ‘Dozens Of American Flags” Being Flown In Long Island

Mara Gay sharted that she felt “disturbed” to see Americans flying “dozens of American flags” in Long Island, according to Fox News.

“The reality is here that we have a large percentage of the American population — I don’t know how big it is, but we have tens of millions of Trump voters who continue to believe that their rights as citizens are under threat by simple virtue of having to share the democracy with others.”

“I think that as long as they see Americanness as the same as one with Whiteness, this is going to continue.”

“I was on Long Island this weekend visiting a really dear friend, and I was really disturbed. I saw, you know, dozens and dozens of pickup trucks with explicatives [sic] against Joe Biden on the back of them, Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also just disturbing … Essentially the message was clear. This is my country. This is not your country. I own this.”

“That is the real concern. Because, you know, the Trump voters who are not going to get onboard with democracy, they’re a minority. You can marginalize them, long-term. But if we don’t take the threat seriously, then I think we’re all in really bad shape.”

From Fox News:

MSNBC contributor Mara Gay said Tuesday that she was “disturbed” to see “dozens of American flags” flown by Donald Trump supporters during a weekend trip to Long Island, New York.

The left-wing editorial board member for The New York Times was also distressed by what she called expletives on the trucks against President Biden, describing the flag-flying Trump supporters as sending a clear message: “This is my country … not your country. I own this.”

She claimed Americans would continue to see things like that until the country was ready to have the conversation about “Whiteness,” adding her concern that “a large percentage of Americans” don’t understand the threat that it is.

Gay received no pushback from the MSNBC hosts or her fellow panelists after making the comments. The Times and MSNBC did not respond to requests for comment.
