MSNBC political pundit and leftist professor Michael Eric Dyson called Trump supporters “maggots” during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday, where he railed against “mediocre mealy-mouthed snowflake White men.”
“Speaking about the maggots—I’m sorry, the MAGA’s,” Dyson quipped, responding to a question about Republican opposition to critical race theory.
The academic racist was firing back over critics of Critical Race Theory, a Marxist ideology that puts Americans in two categories: oppressors and the oppressed.
“We have borne the brunt of being disloyal to this nation. And we have stood by to see mediocre mealy-mouthed snowflake White men who are incapable of taking critique, who are willing to dole out infamous repudiations of the humanity of the other and yet they call us snowflakes and they are the biggest flakes of snow to hit the Earth.
Dyson said such “snowflakes” are “incapable of criticism. They are incapable of tolerating difference. They’re scared of, ‘oh, my God, critical race theory is going to kill your mother.’ They are not critical, they have no race and they don’t understand theory,” he asserted. “Yet they are allowed to wax eloquently about the means and limits of rationality in this country and they couldn’t save themselves if the world depended on it.”
The professor later apologized for his smears.
“I was trying to be cute and clever when I was talking about MAGA, therefore ‘MAGAts,’ not ‘maggots.’ I didn’t anticipate that, you know, brothers and sisters who are White would hear it as that. So I deeply and profoundly apologize for that,” he said.
And then he tried to make himself the victim.
“But I have been hit with an onslaught of death threats and being called the N-word out of White rage for a mistake I made, for which I am willing to apologize certainly. And what Black people are often up against is the fact that we have to be told that emotion will not judge–will not lead to our offering of justice to you,” he said.
