In this episode of You Can’t Make It Up, MSNBC Already Did…
It’s almost like MSNBCs twin race-hustlers, Tiffany Cross and Joy Reid, are locked in a daily contest in which they try their damnedest to concoct the most ridiculous race-baiting lie of the day. Far as I can tell, it’s pretty much a dead heat. Toss in “justice correspondent” for The Nation, Elie Mystal, on one of their shows, and that day’s race is in the bag. It makes for great entertainment, of course, and the delusion is epic.
In response to Donald Trump’s recent ill-advised warning (threat) that there would be “big problems” in the country if he’s indicted — an irresponsible statement, given the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, like it or not — Mystal went full-metal Mystal. As transcribed by NewsBusters:
The cause of the problem, of course, is Trump himself and his MAGA acolytes themselves, and the people who are willing to do the violence in Trump’s name.
Again, I’m not, I guess I want to say that I’m not surprised that he’s threatening this because, A, he’s literally done it before. And B, this is literally what conservative white folks do when they don’t get their way. They turn violent.. . . White people turn violent when they don’t politically get their way. All the damn time in this country. It’s what they do!
Stop the nonsense for a minute. Imagine the outrage on the left if every time a black person or group of black people turned to violence, Fox News host Tucker Carlson declared:
“This is literally what liberal black folks do when they don’t get their way. They turn violent. Black people turn violent when they don’t politically get their way. All the damn time in this country. It’s what they do!”
Ladies and gentlemen, “journalists” Tiffany Cross and Elie Mystal:
And so, from the perspective of a black person, I’m kind of like, welcome to a world that I’ve been living in, America. Because now, what we have is white domestic terrorists threatening to turn violence [sic] against non-black people.
Cross ignorantly — purposely so — agreed with Mystal’s racist rant:
Right. And you’re not opining. That statement is rooted in history, in fact. If you are even a modest student of history, you have seen this scenario play out several times.
The worst part is these people know exactly what they’re doing and why they’re doing it. Just as race-hustlers Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton did — and became millionaires as a result.
Barack Obama was unavailable for comment.
Incidentally, violent Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa anarchists — AKA: “peaceful protesters” — who rioted across America, looting, torching businesses, threatening residents with violence, and in several cases indiscriminately killing people were also unavailable for comment.
