Michigan’s Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel was on MSNBC on Saturday while hostages were still being held at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas and, despite the information already known about the attacker and his motivations, suggested that nevertheless maybe domestic extremist white supremacists were behind it.
It was the Free Beacon who first pointed out this wild and wrong speculation by the Democrat. Nessel is on TV a lot. Like a LOT. She’s basically a regular on both CNN and MSNBC on a variety of topics that have nothing to do with her job, which is supposed to be serving the people of her state.
Yesterday was no exception, as she pontificated about something she knew nothing about, and got away with the only kind of speculation allowed in unfolding situations. Even AFTER the fact, the AP and Biden and CNN don’t want to even speculate if the British extremist Muslim terrorist who wanted another terrorist know for her vicious hatred of Jews freed from prison might have been motivated by anti-Semitic extremist Muslim terror.
But blaming “white supremacy” in the United States? Well in the media that’s what they say about any Republican of any kind, so THAT is perfectly allowed. And that’s what Nessel did.
“We have seen an incredible rise in rhetoric that is anti-Semitic being trafficked all around the country,” Nessel said, noting “an exponential rise in the formation and the membership of these extremist organizations, many of which are white supremacy organizations, and they traffic in hatred against Jews and other minorities.”
“If it does turn out that is the motivating factor here, it would hardly be a surprise,” Nessel said.
Keep in mind, the man’s demands were heard right at the beginning. He was being broadcast live on Facebook on the synagogue’s page, where they carry their services each week. It was clear what he was after. MSNBC was already reporting that he’d asked to speak to “his sister,” though they were conveniently leaving out that he was claiming his sister was Aafia Siddiqui, aka Lady al Qaeda.
This was all known, and MSNBC claimed they weren’t reporting it because they didn’t want to INFLAME the situation. But Nessel blaming white supremacy? TOTALLY. FINE.
Free Beacon continues:
Nessel made no mention of the chance that the attack on the Texas synagogue was carried out by a Muslim terrorist, speculating only that it was “domestic terrorism.”
The attacker was a British foreign national, identified on Sunday as Malik Faisal Akram. He was killed during the standoff, and all hostages were rescued.
Once again, there will be no criticism from other media about this. They are allowed to do it. It is expected. It’s disgusting and expected.
Nessel, in fact, will greatly benefit from her appearance, get more invites on shows, and more money from donors. Because this is how it works in the Democrat party.
