Another MSNBC Lunatic Criticizes Sen. Tim Scott, Yet No One Will Answer the ONLY Question That Matters

The host of MSNBC’s “Cross Connection,” Tiffany Cross, became the latest liberal lunatic to express her outrage over Republican Sen. Tim Scott’s rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address on Wednesday night. Scott, as the world already knows, had the temerity to say that America is not a racist nation.

(Note: Please scroll down for a video and a transcription of Cross’ remarks.)

On her Saturday morning show, she insinuated that Sen. Scott was so intimidated by white people, he would say whatever they wanted him to say. “When you speak uncomfortable truths, like Nikole Hannah Jones (the creator of the 1619 project), the party that Scott claims is not racist gets big mad and tries to silence you.”

She said that it wasn’t worth arguing with an individual “Harriet Tubman would have left behind.”

“Perhaps this was merely Senator Scott’s audition to be Sam Jackson’s understudy in the film Django,” she told her audience.

Although she had clearly put some time into what she likely hoped sounded like an impromptu monolog, she needn’t have bothered. It was a mere repeat of all of the tired liberal talking points about voter ID.

I have one big burning question to ask every Democrat who disapproves of asking a voter to prove that they are who they say they are.

HOW is it racist?

Affordability is not an option because most, if not all, states provide free photo IDs for any resident who requires one. So, what is the reason?

Do they believe that blacks and other minorities aren’t smart and/or competent enough to figure out how to obtain an ID?

Because by constantly repeating that this requirement will suppress the votes of people of color, that’s essentially what you’re saying.

The position that requiring an ID in order to cast an absentee ballot is too onerous or too complicated for blacks and other minority groups to navigate is itself racist.

Am I wrong? Then please explain why I’m wrong.

The real reason is that an ID requirement makes it more difficult to commit voter fraud. Each eligible voter receives one vote. Ineligible voters receive zero votes.

The provision of a state issued number on a ballot limits that voter to one vote, rather than two or more votes.

So, do us all a favor Tiff and sit down, huh? Because you’re just another lying liberal hack who’s bummed out that Democrats won’t get away with the same chicanery they got away with in 2020.

 

Transcription of Cross’s Remarks

The Root’s Michael Harriot: Can anyone name a political social or economic institution in America where widespread disparities and discrimination does not exist? Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross: Such a great question from my friend, The Root’s Michael Harriot. And I actually have an answer: The hollow institution that resides inside Republican Senator Tim Scott’s head. No racism there. And apparently no sense either.

This week, the sole Black Republican in the Senate sounded a stone fool when he said this: “Hear me clearly, America is not a racist country.”

Okay let’s be clear. Tim Scott does not represent any constituency other than the small number of sleepy slow-witted sufferers of Stockholm Syndrome who get elevated to prominence for repeating a false narrative about this country that makes conservative white people feel comfortable.

Because when you speak uncomfortable truths, like Nikole Hannah Jones, the party that Scott claims is not racist gets big mad and tries to silence you. Just this week, Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell asked Education Secretary Miguel Cardona to stop teaching the 1619 Project in schools because it would “reorient the view of American history.”

Lucky for McConnell, he has his own tap dancer to try and reorient the view of America for him.

There were so many contradictions in the senator’s speech that it was clear not even Scott believed the words he was speaking. I could go into great detail refuting each of his asinine points, but he did that for me.

And moreover, a lesson I’ve learned: Don’t argue with people Harriet Tubman would have left behind.

And sure, Tim Scott has spoken out about his encounters with law enforcement and he co-sponsored the anti-lynching bill in the Senate, but there are two sides to every token.

So thirsty for white approval, this dude actually stood on the national stage to defend the voter suppression law in Georgia even though, as of last month, 361 bills were being introduced in 47 states to keep people who look like him out of the ballot box.

The ability to shame the ancestors and appease the oppressors all in one speech, that’s extreme. Though not quite like the domestic violent extremism that the Department of Homeland security is investigating within its own ranks, mind you. But please senator, say more about how unracist the country is while you trot out that tired line about going from cotton to Congress to clown.

Perhaps this was merely Senator Scott’s audition to be Sam Jackson’s understudy in the film Django, because as a descendant of the enslaved, and damn near a daily survivor of institutional racism, I can assure you the question “Is America a racist country?” is one that has been asked and answered many times over.

Yet we still love America, not for what it was, but for what it could be.

On this one, you’re not only in the wrong side of the aisle, Senator Scott, but you’re embarrassingly on the wrong side of history as well.

Watch: Fox Reporter Grills Psaki on Georgia Voting Law, Responds by Doubling Down on Lies

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is a terrible liar.

During last week’s press conference, President Joe Biden was asked about efforts by numerous state legislatures to pass voting reform bills intended to prevent the widespread “irregularities” that have led so many of us to question the results.

“What I’m worried about is how un-American this whole initiative is. It’s sick. It’s sick … deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work,” replied the President.

The next day, Biden attacked Georgia’s new legislation again in a statement which said, “Among the outrageous parts of this new state law, it ends voting hours early so working people can’t cast their vote after their shift is over.”

A fact check of these obviously false remarks performed by The Washington Post earned the President “Four Pinocchios.”

At Thursday’s White House briefing, Fox Business News reporter Ed Lawrence summarized what Georgia’s new voting law actually requires and asked Psaki, “Is there going to be a correction? … Is the tone going to change out of the White House?”

She repeated the lies that Biden had just been publicly rebuked for and added, “The tone for a bill that limits voting access? That makes it more difficult for people to engage in voting in Georgia?”

Lawrence pushed back. “No, that’s actually not what the governor of Georgia has said.”

“Well, I think that is not based in fact, what the governor of Georgia has said,” Psaki replied. “So, no, our tone is not changing. We have concerns about the specific components of the package including the fact that it makes it harder and more difficult to vote by limiting absentee options, by making it not viable, not possible for people to provide water to people who are in line, by not standardizing longer hours, so if you’re making it harder to vote, no we don’t support that.”

The only item on Psaki’s list the left is truly upset about are the limitations on absentee ballots, because the explosion in mail-in voting (arguably) handed Biden the White House.

The “Election Integrity Act of 2021,” as the new Georgia law is called, requires applicants for absentee ballots to provide their state ID number. The state offers a free ID Card to those who cannot afford one. In order to verify their ballots, voters will be required to provide either their state ID number or the last four digits of their Social Security number.

This measure will go a long way to ensuring election integrity, something that was sorely lacking last November.

In the following clip, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, in his inimitable style, eviscerates an article written by liberal Jemelle Hill in The Atlantic in which she attacks Georgia’s new law as voter suppression. She runs through all of the Democrats’ talking points and Shapiro expertly bats each one down.

“‘Jim Crow explicitly created a separate system of law for black Americans and treated them as inferior.’ There’s nothing in the law like that. That’s not only an overstatement. It’s an outright lie.

But, says Jemelle Hill … ‘The law imposes new voter identification requirements for absentee ballots.’ Well, clearly that’s racist. I mean you really have to show that you are who you say you are when you vote absentee? If you can explain to me how that’s racist, I’m willing to hear it. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

‘It limits the use of ballot drop boxes.’ Oh, you mean like ballot drop boxes where people could just stuff the ballot box or take ballots out of the ballot box?

‘It hands the state officials more power over local elections. Even before the legislation passed, many voters of color in Georgia faced hours long queues at the polls.’ By the way, voter suppression doesn’t involve long lines, any more than long lines at Disneyland are ride suppression. You know what voter suppression is? Voter suppression is where you don’t get to vote.

‘Making those waits even more arduous, the new law makes giving food and water to people in line to vote.’ That’s not even true. It bans giving any gift to people in line when they are within 150 feet of the polling place. You can bring water with you, there are people outside who can give you water. It’s just not true.”

Biden, Psaki, Hill and the rest know what they are saying is false. They also know that the new law will address many of the problems encountered in November with duplicate voting, dead or otherwise ineligible voters, and custody issues; in other words, much of the chicanery that went unchecked in November.

Democrats oppose anything having to do with election integrity. They do not want secure elections. And they will lie about whatever they need to, to advance their agenda.
