MSNBC political analyst Cornell Belcher believes that Republican politicians’ tough talk on war, the border, and crime is a cover for hatred towards brown people.

He argues that the language used, such as discussing shooting and bombing, goes beyond being tough and becomes a camouflage for hate.

Belcher suggests that hate has historically mobilized people in the U.S., and he sees this as a recurring theme, particularly during Donald Trump’s presidency. (Trending: Supreme Court Dismisses Case To Keep Trump Off Ballot)

“This idea of being tough on crime or being tough on immigration, being tough on terrorism. There’s a fine line between being tough and camouflage for hate,” Belcher began.

“I think they cross that line at the debate when you look at the language about shooting people dead and bombing and wiping people off. That’s not about being tough on terrorism. That is crossing the line and becomes a camouflage for hate.”

He continued, “I hate to say it, but you know American history very well. There is a landing space for hate in this country, and hate does mobilize people in this country. We have seen it time and again. As a matter of fact, it’s the whole predicate of Donald Trump’s presidency is that hate.”

The analyst concluded that the “tough” rhetoric is a form of hate, specifically targeting brown people.

“What I saw on display there is crossing the line. It is not about being tough. It is about hate, camouflage that’s being tough, and it’s hate against, surprise, surprise, a bunch of brown people. So I’m not surprised by that at all.”
