MSNBC host Tiffany Cross has trashed America as a nation built “on stolen land with stolen labor.”
Cross blasted the United States during a rant in defense of President Joe Biden and the Democrats while trying to make the case democracy is in peril.
The Democrats are in total control of the federal government, however.
“All right, are you guys familiar with that urban myth that if you put a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will instantly bow, but if you put it in a pot filled with pleasantly tepid water and gradually heat it, the frog will remain in the water until it boils to death.
“That is a fitting metaphor for our democracy right now.
“As our democratic norms erode within America, we must wonder, will this democracy survive?
“A Yahoo News poll says no.
“But perhaps when you build a nation on stolen land with stolen labor, it was never going to be a republic we could keep.
“So let’s talk about the possible fall of democracy and what, if anything, can be done to keep it.”
These are the kind of idiotic 🦕🦖 arguments made to deliberately divide the nation. There's a reason we call it "divided we fall." – MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross: ‘Perhaps When You Build a Nation on Stolen Land with Stolen Labor, It Was Never Going To Be a Republic We Could Keep’ pic.twitter.com/y9GFbpiYwm

Elie Mystal also complained that the GOP has taken over the Supreme Court.
“We understand that when these people take control of the courts they don’t have to go to the street fighting,” Mystal said.
“We have a case coming up in the Supreme Court next term that will legalize – this is what people need to understand about what they are going to do.
“It will all be legal.
“The insurrection, if you want to call it that, the war, the authoritarian takeover of our nation, it will be made legal by the Supreme Court.
“When you see the, shall we say, tepid reaction to the court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson, if you see the willingness of people to accept Supreme Court announcements without fighting back, you see everything in place for the court to retroactively give legitimacy to any civil insurrection or authoritarian takeover of the government.”
