MSNBC Guest Claims MAGA is Code for Wanting to ‘Lynch or Murder Black Folks’


Ferguson protester and Black Lives Matter activist Brittany Packnett Cunningham claimed during an interview on MSNBC that “Make America Great Again” is code for wanting to “lynch or murder black folks.”

The far-left activist was appearing on Joy Reid’s show ReidOut to discuss SB666, a Missouri bill that would shift the law so that it will be a prosecutor’s job to prove that a defendant was not acting in self-defense in deadly force cases.

Under current law, the defendant has the burden to prove that they reasonably believed physical or deadly force was necessary to protect themself or someone else.

“This act provides that a person who uses or threatens to use force in self-defense is immune from criminal prosecution and civil action for the use of such force, unless such force was used against a law enforcement officer who was acting in the performance of his or her official duties and the person reasonably knew or should have known that the person was a law enforcement officer,” the bill states.

“Additionally, a law enforcement agency may use standard procedures for investigating the use or threatened use of force, but the agency may not arrest the person for using or threatening to use force unless the agency determines that there is probable cause that the force that was used or threatened was unlawful,” the bill continues.

Leftists who oppose the bill, and the right to self-defense, have nicknamed the bill the “Make Murder Legal Act.”

Naturally, while discussing the bill Reid brought up Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who held firearms on their front lawn as Black Lives Matter activists marched through their community.

“As expected, Mark McCloskey, who is running for the open Missouri Senate seat, praised the bill,” Reid said. “Because it means that he essentially, and his wife, could have been in their slippers and shoot every single Black Lives Matter person that walked by, legally, and they would not even be detained.”

Reid then asked the Black Lives Matter activist what this bill would mean for protesters.

“Joy, I’m so glad you reminded us that the McCloskeys were front row and center to testify on behalf of passing thing bill. This was of course the couple that was made famous by stepping outside of their restricted covenant mansion in St. Louis, Glocks in tow, pulling their guns out on unarmed Black protestors. But of course, to people like the McCloskeys, black skin is weapon enough, and this is precisely the problem,” Cunningham said.

Cunningham added that the bill is seeking to “legitimize seeing Blackness as a weapon” and also “justify our murders.”

“I also want to set the proper historical context, because back in the day, by 1950, Missouri had the second-highest number of lynchings outside of the deep south. So when folks talk about making America great again, that’s the kind of Missouri grand ol’ tradition that they want to return to. They want to return to days when you could lynch or murder Black folks and there would be absolutely no retribution for it. That’s not hyperbole. I’m telling you as a Black Missourian and as a protestor, that is reality,” Cunningham added.
