What’s behind a liberal-media outlet like Morning Joe sounding so law-‘n-order on Tuesday? From Joe Scarborough to Willie Geist to—sure!—even Al Sharpton, there was unanimous condemnation of “progressives,” “permissive” prosecutors, and “latte liberals” for his or her soft-on-crime philosophy.
The panel harshly condemned the low bail that led to the discharge of Darrell Brooks in Waukesha, Wisconsin, simply 11 days earlier than he allegedly killed 5 folks and injured scores of others.
The panel expressed related outrage for the lax insurance policies in cities like San Francisco, the place the refusal to prosecute thieves has led to a wave of looting, or “smash and seize” crimes, within the present lingo. Scarborough scoffed at San Francisco Mayor London Breed all of the sudden condemning such lawlessness, after tolerating it for years.
Sharpton strikingly mentioned that the “actual racism” isn’t holding folks liable for their criminality, on the idea that they do not have “the mentality to do something aside from beastly acts.”
So once more, what’s behind this outbreak of tough-on-crime discuss on MSNBC this morning? Let’s grant that there may have been some righteous outrage concerned.
However politics is pervasive. Absolutely the liberal media is painfully conscious that the headlines reflecting out-of-control crime are politically damaging to Democrats. In spite of everything, the Dems are the get together of defund the police, do not prosecute thieves, and within the case of Squad members like Rashida Tlaib, close all federal prisons inside 10 years and free the inmates.
So it is fairly straightforward to imagine that Morning Joe was taking part in protection on behalf of the Dems, and making an attempt to ship a message to the get together’s dominant left wing to again off insurance policies that would show disastrous on the polls in 2022 and past.
This is the transcript.
6:33 am ET
REPORTER: [Brooks] was launched launched from jail simply 11 days in the past after posting a $1,000 bail, in line with the Milwaukee district lawyer, who referred to as that, “inappropriately low.”
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Willie: inappropriately low? A thousand-dollar bail for home abuse, and making an attempt to run over the mom of his youngster?
. . .
And no money bail? Which lots of people on the far-left love to speak about. That folks that truly stay in New York Metropolis and are coping with skyrocketing crime? That is why that was an enormous subject within the New York mayor’s race.
. . .
WILLIE GEIST: We need to flip now to the collection of brazen smash-and-grab robberies on the West Coast.
. . .
SF MAYOR LONDON BREED: We won’t proceed folks to permit folks to freely movement out and in of this metropolis, commit these acts, and get away with it.
. . .
SCARBOROUGH: I am undecided what the mayor of San Franciso is speaking about. We should cease this? I imply, it has been occurring for a few years now!
. . .
GEIST: These incidents we’re watching these final two days didn’t fall out of the sky. They occur as a result of there is a permissive setting in these cities the place we’re not going to prosecute property crimes.
. . .
AL SHARPTON: These latte liberals that justify this. This has nothing to do with poverty, this has nothing to do with you could not get a job.
. . .
SCARBOROUGH: I simply marvel, like, who determined that this was enlightened? Who determined that this was progressive?
. . .
SHARPTON: There’s nothing progressive about appearing like this sort of vile habits is regular. To normalize it’s to behave like sure folks, or sure communities or sure races, we do not count on you to do no higher. Aww: you tried to run your spouse down, or your woman down, that is what y’all do. Let ’em go. Quite than having an ordinary there that’s honest for everyone. However in the event you break what’s legal or not legal, you pay a worth. That’s actual racism, when, if you count on folks of a sure group and a sure background not to have the ability to behave aside from anyone that’s uncontrolled, that does not have the mentality to do something aside from beastly acts.
