Mika Brzezinski: Democratic Party Is ‘Best Hope Against Facism’

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski railed against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade while stating the Democratic party to be the “best hope against fascism.”

The “Morning Joe” co-host painted a pessimistic view of American freedoms in the fallout of the Supreme Court decision. Her suggestion to women who feel lost and at-risk in this new reality was simple: “Please vote.”

“Democrats somehow manage to get the most votes and lose the most elections, so they need more,” Brzezinski said. 

“Even when they win, they lose. It could be argued that today’s Democrats are too weak, too fragile, too woke, too elitist, too disconnected from the realities of working Americans. And yet, the Democratic party is the world’s last, best hope against fascism.”

Following the decision, many criticized the Democrats for their failure to ratify or at least further protect Roe v. Wade. In addition, some went after former President Barack Obama for not enacting legislation to codify abortion rights into federal. 

Nonetheless, Brzezinski concluded her segment with another call to action for viewers to vote in the upcoming elections, noting that despite the Democratic Party’s flaws, they’ll fight “this continued rise of fascism.”

“For all the Democratic party’s flaws, they’re the only party that can stem this continued rise of fascism,” Brzezinski said. “Register and vote, work toward an overwhelming majority that can protect your body and your freedoms and just may save our country.”
