MSNBC host Tiffany Cross gave up the game in a desperate attempt to save President Joe Biden and the Dems this fall and tried to make the case Democracy is in peril. This despite the Democrats being in total control of the federal government.
If they don’t like a Supreme Court ruling, they can pass a law or add more justices to the court. They literally can do whatever they want. Except dig themselves out of the deep hole inflation and Biden’s unpopularity dug for them.
There is nothing that will get them out from under that not even trying to scare the MSNBC faithful. Because even they know the Democrats control the House, the Senate, and the presidency. Cross said:
“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?
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— Alexandra Datig | Front Page Index 🇺🇸 (@alexdatig) July 16, 2022
“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.”
Elie Mystal complained that the GOP has taken over the Supreme Court. Remember, Mitch McConnell outplayed the Dems but they do have constitutional remedies. They just don’t have the votes.
“We understand that when these people take control of the courts they don’t have to go to the street fighting.
“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.”
