Can you imagine the outrage if someone on a news panel had dismissed the death of ‘some black teen in Florida’ when referring to Trayvon Martin?
That’s pretty much what happened on MSNBC last night.
Fordham University professor Christina Greer was so giddy after the news of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen pleading guilty, as well as Paul Manafort being found guilty on 8 tax-related charges, that she flippantly said that Fox News wasn’t covering the ‘big news’ and was instead talking about ‘some girl in Iowa.’
Fox News did indeed cover the tragic end to the search for Mollie Tibbetts and the illegal alien that was charged in her murder. Fox News also covered both the Manafort and the Cohen stories extensively with multiple segments every hour.
That wasn’t enough to satisfy Dr. Greer, however.
The death of 20-year old Mollie Tibbets at the hands of a man that shouldn’t have been in the country in the first place didn’t seem to rank very highly on her newsworthiness list.
As a reminder to Dr. Greer, who is a professor of Politica Science, illegal immigrants killing American citizens is a political issue. Democrats are planning on running on an ‘Abolish ICE’ and ‘Open Borders’ agenda in the midterms. Illegal immigration is an issue that many Americans feel very strongly about. In the wake of the Mollie Tibbetts story, that number is likely to increase.
That was cold, callous, and cruel.
Not only that, it was blatantly false.
To her credit, Dr. Geer did (sort of) apologize on Twitter:
Yesterday I said something flippant that was unintended. Mollie Tibbets was a promising young woman who lost her life. My hope is that her family will find peace & justice and that her murder is not used to justify a discriminatory immigration policy. #Apologiesaremyown.

See what she did there?
It’s all about the narrative.
She has to push against enforcing immigration law because it’s ‘discriminatory.’ Uh, yeah. That’s kind of the point — but not in the racial sense. We discriminate against those that try to cut the line and skirt the law, no matter what color their skin is.
The entire purpose of having points of entry and a system of rules by which one must legally enter the country is so that we can select who can and cannot stay. One of those things that we check for is criminal activity. I’m not saying that every illegal alien will commit heinous crimes like Cristhian Bahena Rivera did, but they did indeed break the law by entering the country illegally or overstaying their visa. The fact is, there are some criminals that do enter the country illegally. Does Dr. Greer really want to have America be the safe haven for criminals on the lam?
Of course, she tweeted her ‘apology’ 9 hours after tweeting this gem:
When right wing media decides to target you, you really see the “economic anxiety” come out.

Well, as a good progressive, Dr. Greer has often said some spectacularly horrendous things.
By the way, the Mollie Tibbetts story was covered extensively by the Media (D)… right up until yesterday.
What could have possibly changed that in such a short period of time?
Mollie Tibbett was a lead story for the “mainstream” media.
Until yesterday when we found out this beatiful young American woman was killed by an illegal from Mexico.

It was the entire narrative.
Here’s a brand new book on how to be a Warrior Chick by Regis Giles — daughter of our very own Doug Giles:
From the book:
Do I want this to be happening? Why is his hand on my waist? Is he really fondling my breasts? What do I do? Why is he in a bathrobe? Why is he taking off the bathrobe? God, I need to get out of here! I thought this was going to be professional.
No one, unless they’ve been in the same situation, can ever really understand the stress and self-doubt one goes through when sexual harassment occurs.
Regis Giles’ new book will teach you how to escape the world of #MeToo victim and become the #WarriorChick you were meant to be!
Think Miss Giles knows a thing or two about taking care of herself? You’d better believe it.
She and her sister Hannah were the very first two female Valente Bros black Belts. That’s a feather in your cap, for sure.
She’s got a website ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Guns‘ and she had it LONG before it was ‘trendy’ to talk about #MeToo.
She’s also a world-class huntress.

The “resist” crowd loathes her. Patriots love her.
But love her or hate her, she’s Making America Classy Again.
ClashDaily’s Big Dawg, Doug Giles, has another portrait inspired by the Trump era, and it’s fantastic.
