WATCH: MSNBC Guest Dismisses Mollie Tibbetts as "Some Girl in Iowa"
Fordham University Professor Christina Greer, a frequent guest and Trump-hater appeared on networks television's answer to a garbage heap, MSNBC. She was quick to hit Manafort, Cohen and the Access Hollywood tape oh my! But during her Trump diatribe, she dismissed the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, allegedly killed by an illegal immigrant from Mexico, as "some girl in Iowa." Watch:
From Greer: "I’m sure we’ll hear what he has to say about this at his — his rally, but Fox News is talking about, you know, a girl in Iowa and not this, right? And, tomorrow morning, we know he’ll wake up in tweak and sort of, you know, besmirch the reputation of Michael Cohen and all the people around him and then go back to Mueller. And this has, obviously, been boiled down to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama."
Loathe though I am to engage in "whataboutism" do you recall any unarmed black man, shot by police, as "some guy in such-and-such state"? Because I know all their names. You know all their names. My guess would be Professor Greer knows their names. Their cases were not dismissed as "some random occurrence in some random flyover state we only care about during presidential elections." Their images were plastered all over news networks. National conversations were had about police being rampaging killers, hunting
black people people of color for sport.
Wait, there's more. Or less:
Based on a NewsBusters analysis of MSNBC’s programming since first reports of Tibbetts’s body arrived around 9:00 a.m. Eastern, Greer’s four-second mention of Tibbetts was the network’s only allusion on Tuesday to the now-deceased Iowa student.
Because Mollie was killed by an illegal immigrant, because Mollie was just a white girl from Iowa, her story gets buried. Mollie's story runs counter to the precious leftist narrative all illegal immigrants are here for a better life. So we should lavish them with taxpayer-funded benefits and encourage them to vote Democrat.
But sorry, Mollie wasn't a nobody. She was a somebody and she shouldn't be swept under the media's rug because her death ruins their agenda.
