MSNBC Contributor Demands ‘Pitchforks and Torches’ Outside Trump Fundraiser’s Home

A contributor on MSNBC demanded that people protest outside the home of billionaire Stephen Ross after it was revealed he would be holding a fundraising event for President Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee.

During an appearance on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes,” contributor Elie Mystal claimed that “people of color are already targets” by the Trump administration before going after Ross for his support of the president and saying he wanted to see “pitchforks and torches” outside of the billionaire’s home.

“People of color are already tragets under this administration. I have no problem on shining the light back on the donors who fund this kind of racialized hate. I mean I go further. I want pitchforks and torches outside this man’s house in the Hamptons.”

Mystal continued on to say that there was “no reason” why people should not make “their voices peacefully understood” with pitchforks and torches outside of Ross’ house. He also claimed there was also “no reason” for the billionaire “to have a nice, little party.”

“I’ve been to the Hamptons — it’s very nice,” Mystal said. “There’s no reason why it has to be. There’s no reason why he should be able to have a nice, little party, right? There is no reason why people shouldn’t be able to be outside his house and making their voices peacefully understood.”

On Tuesday, the Washington Post reported that the president was to be the headliner for a pair of fundraising events in the Hamptons on Friday where tickets for the events cost between $5,600 and $250,000.

Ross — the chairman of the parent company to fitness companies Equinox and SoulCycle — will be hosting one of the events at his home.

The revelation sparked calls for protests, boycotts, and membership cancellations for the gyms.

Tear gas and water cannons should keep it peaceful.

Meanwhile, the Liberal/Communist/Democrats, are saying:
“Donald Trump is promoting violence.”
These people need to be charged under,
18 U.S. Code § 373.Solicitation to commit a crime of violence.
Look it up.
After all, it is these same people who limit free speech, of others.

If anyone is hurt and damage this man should be arrested and if something does happen they will say it was all Trumps fault I hope the secret service is there they won’t even be close to that house


MSNBC is now actively trying to get some disturbed leftist to take out Trump or Mitch or this Trump donor. They hope he will use a gun so they will use what THEY PROMOTED as an argument for gun control.

Nice hairdo dumb-ass.


As both I and Morte206 posted, if this spoiled, soft, wannabe inciter of violence had ptichforks and torches outside his residence he’d
1. soil his pants
2. start hollering for cops. You know, the evil racist ones he’s denounced.


Who is this fool? He shows why Democrats/Liberals should never be believed. First he says, “their voices peacefully understood”, then calls for pitchforks and torches. Maybe he’d like to burn a cross on the lawn. Will all these protesters be wearing white hoods (you know Democrats convinced the Southern states to secede, voted against the black vote and created the KKK)? What would happen if someone came to his house with pitchforks and torches? Democrats are the violent ones, just watch what they do. Lying, cheating, corrupt Democrats.

We’re supposed to consider the content of Elie Mystal’s character, not the color of his skin. Fine. YUK!
