There is a conga line of outrageous personalities at MSNBC, the most hard-left ‘news’ network on the air today, but perhaps none are more so than former “Republican” Nicolle Wallace.
During her little-watched “Deadline: White House” program on Wednesday, she accused the most popular governor in the country, Florida’s Ron DeSantis, of utilizing “dehumanization” as a political tactic while claiming without an ounce of shame that was no different than Russia using the same tactic to get its soldiers to rape children in Ukraine.
“Wallace referenced a speech made by Michigan State Senator Mallory McMorrow (D). McMorrow, responding to a fundraising email in which State Senator Lana Theis had reportedly accused her of ‘grooming and sexualizing children,'” The Daily Wire reported.
Senator Lana Theis accused me by name of grooming and sexualizing children in an attempt to marginalize me for standing up against her marginalizing the LGBTQ community…in a fundraising email, for herself.

Wallace then argued that Theis’ claims were the same as those used by DeSantis to protect K-3 kids from being exposed to discussions about homosexuality and transgenderism via a recently-passed law known as Parental Rights in Education because they are simply too young to understand the concepts. DeSantis as well as several others who support the legislation have referred to anyone who wants to expose the youngest children to such curriculum are “groomers” while going on to argue they want to “sexualize” kids — both of which are absolutely true.
“You and I even fall into a tradition of our profession of focusing on what works and I think we recently had a conversation about Mitch McConnell and why does he do what he does, because it works, it’s a political reality,” Wallace began.
“I worry that in covering Glenn Youngkin and his politics of ‘parental choice,’ all the focus was on how well it worked,” Wallace continued. “And even in our conversations about DeSantis it’s about how well they’re serving him.”
“The truth is dehumanization, as a tactic for politics, is from war,” Wallace noted further. “Dehumanization is — it’s a tactic, it’s being used right now. The Russians get their soldiers to rape children by dehumanizing them. Dehumanization as a practice is a tactic of war. It is being deployed in politics and people like you and I sometimes lose the plot and admire its effective — not its substance, but even the analysis of these tactics loses sight of what this speech brings us back to which is that dehumanization has a cost right now. Right now, as it’s deployed.”
She then referenced recent comments by Chasten Buttigieg, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s spouse, who claimed that legislation like the Florida law would actually risk the lives of children (gee — how in the world did kids make it the centuries our country has been in existence without introducing them to gender and orientation curriculum?).
“This will kill kids, @RonDeSantisFL. You are purposefully making your state a harder place for LGBTQ kids to survive in. In a national survey (@TrevorProject), 42% of LGBTQ youth seriously considered attempting suicide last year. Now they can’t talk to their teachers?” Buttigieg tweeted, failing to acknowledge that the law only bars former instruction of the concepts — it doesn’t prevent kids themselves from talking about them.
Wallace added: “Kids will die. How do we bring it back to the substance of the harm that is done by a strategy in war and politics of dehumanizing people?”
These people are worse than outrageous gaslighters, they are sick. The subject of “sex” should never come up in the context of what kids should be exposed to.
