Hateful MSNBC Pundit: Republicans ‘Are the Same People’ as Slave Owners

hateful-msnbc-pundit:-republicans-‘are-the-same-people’-as-slave-owners

After falsely smearing the Georgia voting bill as racist, MSNBC decided over the last week that they have to do the same with Florida’s anti-riot bill. So on Sunday morning’s Velshi, MSNBC host Ali Velshi brought on far-left Rutgers professor and author Brittney Cooper to not only lie about the law, but accuse anyone and everyone on the right as being “the same people who turned people into property” and “always” prioritizes “property over life.”

Velshi refused to rebut any of this. One has to wonder if Velshi feels that way about any and all conservatives and/or Republicans he knows in his life.

He initiated the hateful propaganda by hilariously insisting that “the things we saw last year are — were not insurrection, they were protests against unjust government.” And yes, this was the same person who downplayed the riots as they were happening in Minneapolis in what became a viral video.

Velshi then disingenuously suggested peaceful demonstrations would be outlawed in Florida and things like the civil rights movement wouldn’t be possible in present-day Florida:

Dr. Cooper, they’re talking about unlawful assembly and you know, they’re a lot of my — a lot of my — maybe not my viewers but a lot of people in America who would say well, if you’re conducting unlawful assembly, you should be in trouble. Except so many of our lawmakers, so many of the people who changed the unjust laws in this country did so through unlawful assembly, including Martin Luther King. The concept of riots, which are determined locally by police, you can get stuck by just showing up in something that someone decided was a riot. 

Just over 24 hours earlier, MSNBC’s The Cross Connection deceptively edited a video of Polk County, Florida Sheriff Grady Judd to only show him condemning violent riots and edited out the sheriff encouraging peaceful protests as such protests are “the foundation of our country.”

Cooper then launched into an deranged rant where she labeled Republicans “white supremacists” and argued they’re “the same people who turned people into property and so certainly they have always cared more about property than about life” (click “expand”):

I think the thing we have to be clear about is that the GOP has abdicated their investment in governing. They’re not giving us any semblance anymore that they care about rights or protection of rights or humanity. They are engaged in a brazen, you know, sort of consolidation of white power. That is what this is all about. Appeals to truth, to justice, to notions of rights don’t compel them anymore because they see a country being taken away from them. They see a country moving too fast. They see a country becoming too inclusive. And so they’re trying to consolidate power.

The second thing is that one of the sort of hallmarks of white supremacy is that it always values property over life and when you see these kinds of perverse bills that say you must protect your monuments or you can’t get state funding, that’s actually part and parcel of how white supremacists have thought about what it means to be a part of the body politic, that these are the same people who turned people into property and so certainly they have always cared more about their — about property than about life. And so, you know, I think we should stop trying to figure out where the moral compass is or what they are trying to do. They don’t care anymore about the function of good government.

Such disgusting attacks are nothing new for Cooper, as she has claimed on MSNBC that the views of Trump supporters are “rooted in racism” and “a desire for power at the expense of everyone who is black and brown.” She has also written that the God of the evangelical right is an “asshole” and that he is “the god of white supremacy and patriarchy.” 

This has also been quite the week of making absurd statements on MSNBC for Cooper, as earlier this week she defended Ma’Khia Bryant, who the Columbus, Ohio police shot for attempting to stab another girl, by claiming that black women can’t “have a bad day” and that the police shot her for not “being perfect.”

Oftentimes, MSNBC operates more like a hate group than a news network by nastily smearing all those who disagree with it.

MSNBC’s Velshi

ALI VELSHI: And — and the things we saw last year are — were not insurrection, they were protests against unjust government. Dr. Cooper, they’re talking about getting convicted unlawful assembly and — and you know, they’re a lot of my — a lot of my — maybe not my viewers but a lot of people in America who would say well, if you’re — you’re conducting unlawful assembly, you should be in trouble. Except so many of our lawmakers, so many of the people who changed the unjust laws in this country did so through unlawful assembly, including Martin Luther King. The — the — the concept of riots, which are determined locally by police, you can get stuck by just showing up in something that someone decided was a riot. 

BRITTNEY COOPER: Look, I — I think the thing we have to be clear about is that the GOP has abdicated their investment in governing. They’re not giving us any semblance anymore that they care about rights or protection of rights or humanity. They are engaged in a brazen, you know, sort of consolidation of white power. That is what this is all about. Appeals to truth, to justice, to notions of rights don’t compel them anymore because they see a country being taken away from them. They see a country moving too fast. They see a country becoming too inclusive. And so they’re trying to consolidate power. The second thing is that one of the sort of hallmarks of white supremacy is that it always values property over life and when you see these kinds of, you know, perverse bills that say you must protect your monuments or you can’t get state funding, that’s actually part and parcel of how white supremacists have thought about what it means to be a part of the body politic, that these are the same people who turned people into property and so certainly they have always cared more about their — about property than about life and so, you know, I think we should stop trying to figure out where the moral compass is or what they are trying to do. They don’t care anymore about the function of good government. They care — and — and finally, let me say this. The Capitol riots, that was — that’s the only civil disobedience that they think is okay  — is a — is — is an actual takeover of state power. Then they recognize it. But for the rest of us, they see people’s protests for justice as an attempt at a coup and they see their own attempts at a coup as their desperate pleas for justice and when your thinking is so perverse and shifted, there’s really nothing else we can do.
