A longtime leftist television host has told viewers to “pick up a weapon” for the “safety” of the United States.
The demand came from Tiffany Cross, who is on MSNBC’s “The Cross Connection.”
She was responding to comments about a “war” inside the United States.
“It is indeed a war,” Cross said. “And I have to say, they have won some battles, Jasmine, but we have to keep our eye on the war. And everybody needs to pick up a weapon and get involved because this is for the safety and lasting of the country.”
She was on screen with Jasmine Crockett, a congressional candidate from Texas, and the two were discussing “the best methods to prevent conservatives from meddling in future elections,” explained a report from the Washington Examiner.
Their discussion, as do many discussions among leftists and liberals these days, launched from President Donald Trump and his distrust of the processes used during the 2020 presidential election.
In fact, independent analysts and surveys have revealed that two factors likely “bought” the election for Joe Biden, including Mark Zuckerberg’s $420 million, which was handed out to leftist elections officials with instructions to recruit voters from Democrat areas, and the decision by both legacy and social media to suppress accurate reporting about international scandals involving the Biden family.
“How do we as a country protect this democracy when these folks don’t like the outcome of the next election, and Jasmine, you know, you’re running for Congress in Texas where this is a problem, where they have partisan poll watchers, an open carry state. It’s a very fragile situation that we’re in right now,” Cross charged. “What’s your message to the people that you’re running to represent? And what’s your message to our viewers today?”
Crockett said black women must continue fighting the “war” against those who don’t comply with left-wing policies, the report explained.
“So there’s a bigger story that I think is brewing, and that is that black women have consistently fought for our democracy on every single level,” Crockett claimed. “We can’t let up. If we say we’ve been defeated, then they have won. This is a war. This isn’t a battle, and we absolutely will win this war.”
Cross responded, “It is indeed a war. And I have to say, they have won some battles, Jasmine, but we have to keep our eye on the war. And everybody needs to pick up a weapon and get involved because this is for the safety and lasting of the country.”
The Examiner reported Cross’ supporters “claim she was speaking metaphorically.”
However, one of the foundational points for leftists is opposition to any weapon. Any time a gun is used in any crime, no matter whether it was obtained legally or illegally, their answer is more gun limits, restrictions – or even bans.
The Examiner described Cross as “an ardent critic of Republicans in Congress,” and explained she has labeled several GOP members as “white supremacists.”
