(Breitbart) – Friday on MSNBC’s “Live,” The Beat DC managing editor Tiffany Cross said she doubted any attendees at a Trump rally could find Greenland on a map while discussing reposts that President Donald Trump inquired about the U.S. buying Greenland.
Cross said, “You know, I’m a little concerned when I hear the descendants of colonizers taking land from indigenous people. You know the Inuit people have been there for centuries and we’re very flimsily talking about taking their autonomous land. I don’t know if you remember in May 2018, Donald Trump talked about the white settlers that came here and tamed the continent. So I think we know how he feels and views this space and that’s a concern particularly for the people there.”
She added, “And I wonder you know this is something you know his supporters are like just blind followers of his and I wonder when this becomes a talking point of his on the campaign trail, can anybody at the MAGA rally point out Greenland on a map? I would be very interested and curious to see. Or tell us what kind of government Greenland is or who the indigenous people are. I highly doubt it. I think when you have a lack of understanding of global diplomacy, you can easily throw out these asinine ideas and have, you know, the sheep following the wolf.
Flashback: AOC: Trump Supporters Not Educated Enough To Recognize Their Own Racism
This week on Crooked Media’s “Pod Save America,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said many of President Donald Trump’s supporters were not educated enough on racism to understand the policies they support are racist.
Ocasio-Cortez said, “It’s not about asking are Trump voters racist. We need to talk about racism, not racists. Racist — it’s a very two-dimensional, boring conversation. Is something racist, yes or no.”
She continued, “We need to talk about racism, its contours, its histories, where it manifests, how it’s used, because like all winning political phenomena, whether good or bad in your opinion, they rely on collation building. So Trump relied on a coalition, and a core part of that coalition were racists building a collation with all sorts of other people that could be susceptible to racist views—if they were blankets and layered and made people feel good about it not being a racist thing.”
She added, “So there are a lot of people that support Trump that genuinely don’t believe that they are racist because we do not talk about or educate people on recognizing racism. And because we do not do that we get caught in this debate of is something racist. Then people use their defensiveness, and they say, ‘Well, it’s not racist because I’m not racist and I believe this thing because it’s economic in nature.’”
