Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin upped the insanity during an MSNBC segment on Monday when she called for “shunning,” “shaming,” and a collective effort to “burn down the Republican Party.”
During a discussion on whether former White House employees such as Sarah Huckabee Sanders or Sean Spicer should be hired for other news or entertainment companies, Rubin declared “these people are not fit for polite society.”
“What we should be doing is shunning these people. What we should be doing is shunning, shaming these people is a statement of moral indignation,” said Rubin.
“It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose. We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. Um, we have to level them because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again.”

A week prior to calling for violence against half the country, in a column praising Mayor Pete Buttegig for his “bipartisan affection,” Rubin wrote that, “whatever ideological differences the noncultists in the Trump era have, we’re bound by a desire for normalcy, calm, reason and respect.”
Rubin, who has long considered herself a “conservative,” physically ran away the last time The Federalist asked her what conservative principles she holds.
