Former Republican Congressman turned MSNBC contributor David Jolly had strange accusations to Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv. Fox News reports:
MSNBC contributor David Jolly shockingly suggested on Tuesday that the social media messages written by Parkland student Kyle Kashuv sounded like ones of a mass shooter and he “deserves a closer look” as to whether the pro-Second Amendment advocate should be able to purchase a firearm.
Jolly began by telling MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle that he has taken a “harder line” in the debate over whether or not Harvard should have rescinded Kashuv’s acceptance after racist and anti-Semitic messages written by the student when he was 16 years old emerged. The former Congressman said today’s political leaders have given “greater permission” to people with “racist feelings,” and heralded the importance of Harvard taking a stand.
Then he launched into the more shocking part of his statements, comparing the Parkland survivor’s online language to that of mass shooters.
“My immediate reaction when I really dug into this, these are the social media postings we see of a shooter and we ask, ‘Where were the signs?’ See something, Say something. We see a shooter, and then we go back and look at social media posts and this is exactly what we see,” Jolly said.
Jolly’s own history is troubled, including a divorce and marriage to his younger assistant and an accidental car killing.
