MSNBC didn’t even try with this one; they kick off their tweet demonizing police and the National Guard by revealing that their piece was written by Talia Lavin, who keeps failing upward. She resigned in disgrace from her job as a fact-checker at the New Yorker, was going to teach “Writing About the Far-Right” at NYU until her class was canceled after only two students signed up, and now is an MSNBC opinion columnist. Yes, it’s Talia Lavin.
.@chick_in_kiev: Across the U.S., a militarized police force and the National Guard prepared to do what they had done so often in the face of ongoing uprisings against police violence: They prepared to brutalize their critics with every weapon they had. https://t.co/jnBBl0zNmP

Um, we thought people loved the National Guard now. Didn’t Speaker Nancy Pelosi make a big deal of posing for a photo with her new personal bodyguards at the Capitol?
Here’s where we’d quote from the piece but then we’d have to read it and we’re just not up to it.
? The author of this article recently had to resign in disgrace from the New Yorker for inventing a false story about a law enforcement official https://t.co/G3qdqt6bJM

The expert on the extreme right-wing mistaking a veteran’s tattoo for a Nazi symbol — what fact-checker hasn’t done that?
I thought she was familiar.

How do you get a media job after that? Seems like your resume would be shot.

They seem to fail upwards into bigger and better things.
It makes no sense.

The left's sick habit of virtue signaling by accusing people they don't like of racism has proven dangerous. She could have endangered the safety of a hero. I'm glad that she lost her job. She shouldn't get it back.

Her small mistake was an attempt to ruin his life.

First ICE now this? Daddy complex much? Seek professional help and stop making up stories to help perpetuate your false narratives and put our law enforcement at risk. Just stop.

They were Trump’s stormtroopers in 2020, and guardians of the Capitol in 2021.
So no protecting the Capitol then?

Wait a second. I thought they were the good guys

Rep. Steve Cohen saw through their ruse, estimating that 75 percent were Trump voters not to be trusted with Biden’s inauguration.
