Wallace, a White House communications director for former President George W. Bush, said the GOP’s aggressive rhetoric on issues such as critical race theory was intended to “dehumanize” the opposition, much like what Russian troops are attempting to do in their actual military invasion of Ukraine.
“The truth is, dehumanization as a tactic for politics is from war,” she said.
“Dehumanization, it’s a tactic,” Wallace continued. “Speaking of right now, the Russians get their soldiers to rape children by dehumanizing them.”
“Dehumanization, as a practice, is a tactic of war. It’s being deployed in our politics, and people like you and I sometimes lose the plot,” she added in video shared online by Mediaite.
