MSNBC Visitors: Police Made ‘Lively Selection’ ‘By Design’ to Permit Capitol Violence

Persevering with its theme of smearing police as conniving savages who allowed Wednesday’s U.S. Capitol assault, MSNBC selected Thursday’s ReidOut to take it up a notch with two Black Lives Matter activists declaring police made “an energetic alternative” “by design” to welcome violence from “vanilla ISIS” and all however gave them “milk and cookies.” 

For her half, host Pleasure Reid giddily touted these conspiracy theories, falsely claiming police eliminated barricades to welcome insurrectionists to the Capitol and lamenting there was “underpolicing” as there was solely “one one that did get shot.”

 

 

Reid went first to Brittany Packnett Cunningham, who stated “the dearth of preparation” by police “was a alternative” and an “energetic alternative” at that in a lot the identical method that “it was an energetic option to vote for Donald J. Trump in 2016 and once more in 2020” and to even dare to “humanize” the 75 million Trump supporters.

Cunningham added numerous different selections to her record earlier than falsely claiming that police “[sat] on their fingers and fake[ed] like this wasn’t home terrorism and the rioters knew they might make this alternative” because the police made “intentional, deliberate selections” from positions of “energy and privilege.”

For the reason that present aired, Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of his accidents from the siege and his demise is being investigated. However go on about how police welcomed what happened, Brittany.

Reid refused to sentence this vile rhetoric and as a substitute went to Garza by lamenting the dearth of pressure from police:

[W]hat I noticed was beneath policing. They weren’t capturing at anybody. It was one one that did get shot who was attempting to breach the Speaker’s —  the world the place the Speaker of the Home is. I — what do you make of it?

An avowed Marxist, Garza replied with extra gasoline for the hearth by saying the police response “was clearly designed” to permit the siege seeing as how, for “300-plus years,” America has existed to “demonize Black Lives Matter” and anybody “combating for dignity and justice and freedom.” 

And on high of that, Garza used a insurrectionist’s quotes in The Nation to rule that, for these on the best, they view non-whites as “legal, animalistic, and savage and out to take one thing from white individuals on this nation.” A lot unity!

To a laughing Reid, Garza concluded with the “vanilla ISIS” analogy (click on “develop”):

GARZA: [T]listed below are false equivalencies even being made between, you realize, the rebellion and tried coup that occurred yesterday with vanilla ISIS on the — on the behest of Donald Trump. And, you realize, people who find themselves taking to the streets as a result of we’re bored with being killed by the people who find themselves supposed to guard and serve us as a result of we’re bored with having our communities be devastated by a scarcity of assets whereas our army budgets and police budgets are within the trillions and but, as you noticed on the Capitol constructing yesterday, vanilla ISIS was actually nearly given milk and cookies. I can inform you 100 p.c {that a} black lady who was having a psychological well being disaster dared to do a U-turn in entrance of the constructing and he or she was shot and killed. So, that’s whiteness on show. 

REID: Wow.

GARZA: And I am truly glad that quote got here out as a result of it’s actually reflective, I believe, of how lots of people see what America is. 

REID: Yeah. Nicely, wonderful. You win for vanilla ISIS — vanilla ISIS. You bought that in there. There’s nothing humorous about it, however I’ve to smile at that one.

Earlier within the present, Reid furthered the lie that “officers mov[ed] the barricades to permit the rioters onto the premises,” which was debunked by the one that took the video (Marcus Dipaola) in an interview with New York journal’s Justin Miller. 

However as we all know with Reid, information aren’t a priority of hers.

This venom for police and anybody towards Black Lives Matter was enabled by advertisers equivalent to Crest, Uncover, and Sling TV. Comply with the hyperlinks to the MRC’s Conservatives Battle Again web page.

MSNBC’s The ReidOut
January 7, 2021
7:03 p.m. Jap

JOY REID: He unleashed that hoard of MAGA followers on the U.S. Capitol the place they confronted little resistance from the Capitol Police. There’s even video that present officers shifting the barricades to permit the rioters onto the premises. And moments in the past, a spokesperson for the division stated the chief of the capitol Police would resign, efficient January 16. And admittedly, not a second too quickly as we’re simply two weeks away from an inauguration that may pose an much more advanced safety problem. And somebody as much as the duty must be on the job.

(….)

7:34 p.m. Jap

REID: Donald Trump spent his presidency claiming he was the President of legislation and order till it was his supporters breaking the legislation. 

[TRUMP CLIPS]

REID: And that final “we love you” was for the individuals rioting within the capitol. And the police appeared to vary their tune as properly, treating principally white MAGA protesters completely in another way in comparison with the best way they’ve black protesters from Ferguson to Baltimore to Washington D.C. the place, by the best way, 300 Black lives matter protesters had been arrested in at some point, in comparison with the paltry dozens who had been arrested in yesterday’s chaos. [INTRODUCES PANEL] And Britney, I’m going to begin with you first as a result of, you realize, Ferguson is type seared into plenty of our minds. Baltimore is seared into positively mine as a result of I used to be there. The way in which that police failed to arrange. We spoke with a police chief earlier. For this to occur, Malcolm Nance described it as a college group was coming, moderately than a gaggle that they should put together for. What do you make of the dearth of preparation and do you suppose it was proper for the police chief to resign because of this? 

BRITTANY PACKNETT CUNNINHAM: The shortage of preparation was a alternative. Because of this I believe it is vital as you’ve been so cautious to do, Pleasure, to decide on the best language. We’ve been listening to all day, all throughout tv and social media that the police simply let it occur. However that applies passivity and, Pleasure, as you properly know, these are energetic selections. Similar to it was an energetic option to vote for Donald J. Trump in 2016 and once more in 2020, it was a alternative for sure journalistic shops to humanize followers. It was a option to name him presidential on airwaves merely for having the ability to string collectively a sentence. It was a alternative for social media platforms to not deplatform him. Simply — identical to all of these selections, it is a option to not put together for a promised rebellion and mob. It’s a option to ignore the repeated requests of black lawmakers to safe the Capitol forward of time. It’s a option to take selfies with insurrectionists and to open up barricades to ask them in. Pleasure, there are not less than 35 federal and district legislation enforcement establishments in a 68-square-mile metropolis known as Washington D.C. with solely 684,000 residents in it. It was a alternative for a type of departments to take the $460 million they get each single 12 months and sit on their fingers and fake like this wasn’t home terrorism. And the rioters knew they might make this alternative. And that’s why they’re on-line fortunately taking credit score for every part they induced yesterday. We’re not right here accidentally. We’re right here due to intentional, deliberate selections that had been made by individuals of energy and privilege and guess what? They do not get to run away. We cannot allow them to. We cannot overlook this. 

REID: Proper, and, you realize, Alicia, you had The Nation did a chunk the place they quote a girl who says, she will be able to’t imagine anybody acquired arrested in any respect. It was solely like 50 one thing individuals acquired arrested and he or she says: “‘This isn’t America,’ a girl stated to a small group, her voice shaking. She was crying, hysterical. ‘They’re capturing at us. They’re imagined to shoot BLM, however they’re capturing the patriots.” Like, what? I — you realize, that shock, you realize, that there was any policing in any respect, however what I noticed was beneath policing. They weren’t capturing at anybody. It was one one that did get shot who was attempting to breach the Speaker’s —  the world the place the Speaker of the Home is. I — what do you make of it?

ALICIA GARZA: Pay attention, as Brittany stated and I 100 p.c agree, this was clearly designed and it was by design and even the outrage of the girl that you simply simply talked about who was quoted in The Nation. I imply, what she is saying is definitely true for her. She deeply believes and deeply understands that this nation is meant to demonize Black Lives Matter. It is imagined to demonize people who find themselves combating for dignity and justice and freedom. It’s overpolice our communities. It is imagined to create us into an different that’s legal, animalistic, and savage and out to take one thing from white individuals on this nation. And that’s actually specified by show on — on that article. And I additionally do need to say right here, one of many methods wherein we see how whiteness is on show within the nation, not simply in that article, however over the previous few days and, frankly, during the last 300 plus years, however actually in a heightened method due to the occasions final night time, is frankly, there are false equivalencies even being made between, you realize, the rebellion and tried coup that occurred yesterday with vanilla ISIS on the — on the behest of Donald Trump. And, you realize, people who find themselves taking to the streets as a result of we’re bored with being killed by the people who find themselves supposed to guard and serve us as a result of we’re bored with having our communities be devastated by a scarcity of assets whereas our army budgets and police budgets are within the trillions and but, as you noticed on the Capitol constructing yesterday, vanilla ISIS was actually nearly given milk and cookies. I can inform you 100 p.c {that a} black lady who was having a psychological well being disaster dared to do a U-turn in entrance of the constructing and he or she was shot and killed. So, that’s whiteness on show. 

REID: Wow.

GARZA: And I am truly glad that quote got here out as a result of it’s actually reflective, I believe, of how lots of people see what America is. 

REID: Yeah. Nicely, wonderful. You win for vanilla ISIS — vanilla ISIS. You bought that in there. There’s nothing humorous about it, however I’ve to smile at that one.
