Scarborough: Looters ‘Giving Right Wing Nuts All the Ammunition They Need’
Discussing the worsening situation in Ferguson Monday morning, Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said that the tiny minority of looters polluting the protests were giving legitimacy to “right wing nuts” who would likely demagogue the tensions in Ferguson against both political parties.
“These looters — some of whom may not even be from Ferguson — are giving right wing nuts all the ammunition they need to attack politicians on both sides who are trying to preach restraint,” Scarborough said. He cited Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and right-wing blogger Erick Erickson as examples of those on the right who were maintaining a moderate tone with regard to Ferguson.
In response to clashes Sunday night Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) called in the National Guard Monday morning.
