Can you imagine a conservative from any branch (media or political) claiming that America is in a war with itself and telling people to ‘grab a weapon’ and get involved? It would be a frenzy. So then, why is it okay when liberal nutjob Tiffany Cross attempts to provoke violence by saying just that?
During her show, Cross told viewers that they needed to pick up a weapon and start fighting for the safety of the country. “It is a war,” she said. 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.”
The left has proven itself to be ridiculously violent over the years so I find it hard to believe that Cross doesn’t know what she’s saying is divisive and inciting.
TIFFANY CROSS: 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.
What’s your message to the people that you’re running to represent? And what’s your message to our viewers today?
JASMINE CROCKETT: Absolutely. First of all, it’s great to be with all of you, it’s great to see you, Tiffany. One of the things I think we’re really not talking about, and I think you started to touch on it for a quick second, with the role that black women play in democracy.
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 capitols, whether they’re state capitols or the US Capitol, or even as it relates to being able to prosecute.
And I think that black women will continue to fight for our democracy. And that’s exactly what I plan to do. I don’t plan to give up. I know that I wouldn’t be here but for those that fought before me, so I’m going to continue this fight. We can’t let up. If we say we’ve been defeated, then they have won. This is a war. This isn’t a battle, and we absolutely will win this war.
CROSS: It is a war, 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.
