MSNBC Analyst Theorizes That Trump’s Call to Lower Flags After Shootings Was Tied to Hitler, White Supremacy

An MSNBC analyst theorized that President Donald Trump‘s call to lower American flags to half-mast after two mass shootings rocked the nation was tied to Adolf Hitler and white supremacy.

During an MSNBC, contributor Frank Figliuzzi speculated that the ending date of the president’s order of flying flags at half-mast in the wake of the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, — August 8 — had ties to Hitler, the Neo-Nazis, and white supremacy as a whole.

The El Paso shooting took the lives of 22 people, and the Dayton attack left nine dead, including the shooter.

Figliuzzi said that the date the flags are supposed to return to full-mast when put into numbers is “8/8.” He pointed out that the number 88 has significance to white supremacy and the Neo-Nazis.

While he denied to “imply” that the president “did this deliberately,” he claimed that the White House is being ignorant of “the adversary” they face with white supremacists.

“So it’s the little things and language and messaging that matters. The president said that we will fly our flags at half-mast until August 8, that’s 8/8. Now I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately, but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that’s being demonstrated by the White House. The numbers 88 are very significant in Neo-Nazi and white supremacy movement. … So we’re going to be raising the flag back up at dusk on 8/8. No one’s thinking about this. No one’s giving him the advice or he’s rejecting the advice.”

Watch the video here:

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) website lists the number 88 as a numerical hate symbol, as it is used by white supremacists as code for “Heil Hitler.” The number 8 corresponds to the eighth letter of the alphabet H, and two of them together — 88 — create the code.

What do you think?

What Frank doesn’t realize is that if you take the letters of his last name and correlate them to the alphabet then divide by 3, it spells out “I’m a butt head retard.” It comes right out of the Democrat National Committee handbook that was written to elect HC for President.

It is fascinating that President Trump is now accused of using ‘code’ to send secret neo-Nazi messages. Will insanity be a major part of the New World Order? I think it already is.

James,

Both Bernie and AOC are card-carrying members of the Democratic Socialists of America. Among their agenda items are elimination of capitalism AND the nuclear family.

At their recent convention, large amounts of time were devoted to using proper gender terms, not having offensive smells, and to shush up because a speaker was prone to sensory-overload.

I was being rhetorical as I suspect these people will NEVER take over anything. Look at General Confusion. He lacks reason, reading comprehension, and suffers from Dunning-Kruger.

James,

Highway 666 has been featured in at least two B-grade horror films and a slew of novels.

There are also subspecies of millipedes with 666 legs. ( illacme plenipes) Antichrist of the millipedes? Probably not.

Let’s not encourage amateur numerologists to make idiot connections.

That’s fine. He can think whatever. I think that NYT, CNN, and MSNBC (and all of their “talent”) are auditioning to be the new Pravda/TASS/ CTV-USSR of their democrat/soviet style socialist overlords.

Bit of a stretch, Frank. 8/8 is also the date Trump has a fund raiser before he starts his 10 day vacation. 8/8 is also my great-nephew’s birthday. Sometimes numbers are just numbers.

Why does the Left keep coming up with associations to the National Socialists? Are they trying to make people believe that fascism was NOT a creation of the Left (Mussolini was a Socialist before morphing that into fascism). It makes one wonder what the Democratic Socialists will become if they ever attain power.
