As Twitchy reported Wednesday, Rep. Cori Bush literally infantilized Ma’Khia Bryant, calling her “a 16-year-old baby.” That sentiment was echoed on Joy Reid’s show Thursday night, except the claim was that Bryant was “adultified.” But not only was Bryant just a child … she was a big girl, which makes it easier for us to overlook her humanity. Not surprisingly, this view came from Brittney Cooper, who was recently on Oprah’s network telling us that the racism that black women experience — the struggle — makes white women’s diets not work for them.
WHAT?! MSNBC's Joy Reid, guest blame the Columbus police officer for having somehow triggered #MaKhiaBryant into wanting to stab one of the other girls on the scene.
They add that Bryant didn't deserve to die because she was having an off day and not behaving "perfect" pic.twitter.com/emtnqXIkfq

“Regular community conflicts” such as trying to stab someone. Makes sense to me.

"…regular ol' everyday community conflict."
That's the kind of community one leaves quickly.

Why is she allowed on air?

After claiming that hackers had inserted homophobic content into the web archive of her old blog, she was promoted and given her own primetime show.
We've all had an off day. Who hasn't come home and stabbed a couple of people after a rough day at the office? But what really gets under my skin is when I've just opened up a nice wound in one of my neighbors and those GD white cops roll up and start shooting. Geezus!

This panel is a race baiting joke. The ring door bell video shows it all. The cop told her to lay down. She snapped and was not listening. All under 19 seconds. They’re full of it.

So attempting to stab someone is now “not behaving perfect” instead of trying to kill someone. Insanity.

Remember when everyone freaked out when they thought (through edited video from Aaron Rupar) that a sheriff excused the massage parlor mass shooter because he was having “a really bad day”?
The fact she said the cop came out of the car "guns blazing" is not only such a lie to anyone with eyes, but is part of the plan to keep telling the lie over and over. And, given NBC edited both the 911 call and the video, they know they can get away with anything.

Yeah, NBC Nightly News edited out the part of the video showing the knife in Bryant’s hand, as well as edited the 911 call.
They could just save a lot of time and just say that they hate cops….which is why they are acting like this.

They’re not going to let this go. They’re going to spin this bullshit, ridiculous, false narrative until suckers believe it as truth. Watch and see.
