MSNBC host Tiffany Cross arguably fomented violence on Saturday during an interview with state Representative Jasmine Crockett (D-TX) when she told Democrats to “pick up a weapon and get involved” in the “war” for the survival of the country.
The discussion on the panel centered around alleged election interference concerning former President Donald Trump. Crockett is running for Congress in Texas and discussed with Cross how best to fight off Republicans who may object to election results in the future.
“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 lamented. “What’s your message to the people that you’re running to represent? And what’s your message to our viewers today?”
Crockett spoke of “the role that black women play in democracy” and how the media doesn’t address the issue enough. She proclaimed that she would fight for black women in the ongoing “war” against conservatives.
Sounds like a good list of candidates to oppose. https://t.co/7ihpIBkaj5

“You know, one of the things that I think we’re really not talking about, and I think you started to touch on it for a quick second, was the role that black women play in democracy. When you think about Georgia, you can’t think about Georgia without thinking about Latasha, and without thinking about Stacey. And when you look at the fact that the one prosecutor that’s going after that family is a black woman in Georgia, when you look at who’s going after that family in New York, it’s a black woman, right?” she remarked on MSNBC.
“And 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, whether it was in the streets, whether it was in the halls of capitals, whether their state capitals, or the U.S. Capitol, or even as it relates to being able to prosecute, and I think that black women will continue to fight for our democracy,” the young Democrat stated.
“And that’s exactly what I plan to do. I don’t plan to give up, you know, I know that I wouldn’t be here, but for those that fought before me, and so I’m going to continue this fight. We can’t let up. If we say we’ve been defeated, then they have won. But this is a war. This isn’t a battle, and we absolutely will win this war,” Crockett asserted.
That was when Cross wholeheartedly agreed that it is indeed a “war,” going even further to sound like she was calling for violence.
“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,” she declared to nervous laughter from at least one panel member on the leftist network.
Tiffany Cross says to liberals “ pick up a weapon and get involved to save democracy “
BAD IDEA! Moron, the right by far controls the FIRE POWER IN AMERICA

Cross may have been speaking metaphorically as her supporters contend, but her choice of words is noteworthy given the media’s hyperventilation over emotionally charged utterances in politics. She is one of MSNBC’s most liberal firebrands and has recently accused Republican members of Congress of being “white supremacists,” according to Fox News. Given her own history of unacceptable political rhetoric, many feel there’s an equal chance she meant exactly what she said.
Her inciteful words were especially ironic after she accused Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) of gunning for House Democrats in December.
Cross asked the House Democratic Caucus Chair Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), “You know I want to ask because this you know gun violence keeps happening, you’re working alongside gun enthusiasts, like Congresswoman Lauren Boebert who made, you know, her carrying her gun to work on Capitol Hill a part of her uh, campaign quite frankly.”
“She’s made threatening comments, she’s made insulting comments about some of your fellow colleagues, I’m just curious with the discord happening on Capitol Hill right now, do you feel safe working on Capitol Hill alongside people who are provocateurs, and some of that provoking led to the violence that we saw happen on January 6th?” she remarked.
Having pointed the finger at Boebert, Cross seems to have no problem with telling others to weapon up and go to “war” against conservatives.
People took Cross at her word:
Sounds like a threat to me, @FBI want to take a look into this

its this kind of rhetoric that led to jan 6 .. and if you pick up a weapon and start threatening me or others .. speaking on behalf of people living in Texas.. well you will end of being on the losing side of things

You know, some people in Congress would call this kind of talk INSURRECTION ……………….. but only if it was said by a white Republican

“…Everybody needs to pick up a weapon and, and get involved because this is a, for the, the safety, and lasting of the country”.
How does this even make sense?

Nice example on non-violent communications skills 🙄

Hey @TiffanyDCross, as the old saying goes – “Be careful what you wish for”, it just might come true but not like you think.
