MSNBC Panel Blames “Trumpism” for Tragic Georgia Shooting

Relentlessly determined to blame President Donald Trump for every single bad thing that happens in America, MSNBC’s liberals decided Saturday that Trump, the NRA, and racist police are at fault in the tragic shooting of Georgia’s Ahmaud Arbery. Host Joy Reid, who isn’t happy unless she’s pointing out how racist and awful white Americans are, kicked off the segment with a long-winded rant describing those who participate in anti-lockdown protests as “angry, spittle-flecked, mostly men, mostly white, spewing respiratory droplets and indignation.”

Not, as you may have previously thought, hard-working Americans who are worried about liberty and their own paychecks.

Reid went from this ugly rant into a larger discussion of the “necropolitics” of the coronavirus pandemic. If that word is unfamiliar to you, it is Reid’s term for describing the “freedom to decide who gets to live and who has to die for me to get mine.” See, Reid (and she’s sadly not alone) has come to the conclusion that once Trump and his supporters realized that the coronavirus was disproportionately affecting minorities, they no longer cared about the death tally.

And here we thought the line against Trump was that he NEVER cared about the coronavirus. Well, arguments change as political contrivances shift.

After winding down this stunningly-racist monologue, Reid was primed and ready to bring on her guests to talk about the Ahmaud Arbery shooting.

“Police are quite casual about white protesters literally screaming in the faces of officers,” Reid mused. “They’re not afraid of them, but they’re afraid of any black motorist.”

That’s a stretch.

But it was enough of an opening for Vanderbilt University professor Jonathan Metzl, who concluded that “all the rhetoric coming out of the NRA” is responsible for Arbery’s death. “What I write about in my book, these ideas that basically the white body, the white home is a particular castle. All of that rhetoric has been kind of deployed to give the idea that basically white Americans can use their weapons to defend themselves.”

Ah. Anyone care to break down gun violence by race and see if this statement holds up to scrutiny?

But the previous remarks were nothing compared to those of NBC’s Kurt Bardella, who joined the conversation to say that “white people feel like it’s okay to hop in the back of your pickup truck and hunt another human being down and execute him and film it for reasons that are beyond understanding.”

Well, these particular two white people apparently thought that, but we certainly haven’t seen too many white people defend it. Again, do you really want to get into statistics and start arguing about what black people “feel like it’s okay” to do?

The shooters, Bardella continued, were “fueled by the rise of Trumpism and fueled by the fact that the most powerful person in the world views minorities and people of color as second-class citizens and every policy that he has supported and imposed on the American people is designed to elevate white people and keep people of color down, you know, somewhere else.”

We’re not sure how to stop killings like the one in Georgia or to prevent the miscarriage of justice that seemed to follow. But if we had to guess, doubling down on “whites are evil,” racially-divisive rhetoric is probably the exact worst way to do it.

What do you think?

  1. Another FAKE news propaganda bullshit story. Only an imbecile would watch MSNBC. The same morons that also believe that Trump colluded with Russians and pushed that bullshit. Do they have any views with a brain?

  2. Your whole idea is Bullshit. Don’t make the blacks look stupid. Your whole thought process is wrong. I feel these 2 men should be let out of jail and the public be told what time and where and let the mob take care of our tax dollars quick and easy, They should be put to death not later -now. Save us all the time and effort to end this now. Father and son -who cares-they killed an innocent young man, flat out.Trumpism my ass. He had nothing to do with this. It just shows how uneducated you are. End the shit on TRUMP and understand he is getting all the crap out of government now and going to show the old shit that happened also, regardless what YOU think. Complete jerk off.

  3. THE DEMOCRATS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE ALWAYS SHOUTING RACISM. THEY KEEP THE BLACK COMMUNITY IN BONDAGE THIS WAY AND KEEP THEM DEPENDENT ON THE DEMOCRATS. THEN THEY DO NOTHING FOR THEM AFTER THE DEMOCRATS GET THEIR VOTE. WAKE UP BROTHERS AND SISTERS.AND SEE THE REAL TRUTH BEHIND THEIR PROPAGADA.

  4. This is what msnbc. ,cnn. and many other fake news networks pay their employees to do. Lie about their enemies, the real Americans that want to keep America what it was meant to be, a free from tyrnanny, fair society for all to pursue the American dream. That is why the communist left, the muslims and nany othes are trying constantly to take away our freedom of speech, trying to silence us and take away our gun rights so that we can not defend our rights.

  5. I blame CNN and MSNBC with their bands of racist morons. They are the ones dividing this country and these lazy give me my free stuff democrat voters are too stupid to see it.

  6. what a bunch of freaking assholes this is why we all know that the Democratic news stations want to blame Trump for everything that goes on, do we here the cry when white people are killed by blacks HELL NO THATS ACCEPTABLE, nor is their outrage when BLACK kill police officers that is also acceptable. It is time the black people take responsibility for their actions and quit trying to place the blame in other places. I feel that the two that were involved in the shooting and the cover-up should be brought to justice and sent away for a long time

  7. The shooters, Bardella continued, were “fueled by the rise of Trumpism and fueled by the fact that the most powerful person in the world views minorities and people of color as second-class citizens and every policy that he has supported and imposed on the American people is designed to elevate white people and keep people of color down, you know, somewhere else.” I suppose you have data, like facts to back up the accusations????????????? i didn’t think so.

  8. The only way that I would pull a gun on someone is if I had no other choice to protect myself or my loved ones. I refuse to go to jail for some piece of crap that is just not worth it. Now if I believe it is them or me, I hope that I will not hesitate to pull the trigger. In my wildest dreams I do not think that I am stupid enough to try to take a gun that is pointed at me by a guy who also has a friend who has a gun.

  9. This is a very good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
