MSNBC Praises Violent Protesters as ‘Expressing Their Humanity’
May 25, 2016
Outside of a Trump rally Tuesday night in Albuquerque New Mexico, anti-Trump protesters showed up and became violent, throwing rocks, smashing doors, jumping on cop cars and setting Trump flags on fire. For a couple of hours, police tried to control the protesters and find a way to let the hundreds of people who attended the rally, trapped inside, out safely. An NBC reporter was even knocked down off camera as he reported on the scene. Yet his colleagues at sister network MSNBC were less than shocked by the protesters actions, in fact they seemed congratulatory, praising them for their actions and rationalizing their violence.
Throughout the late night coverage of the protest, Chris Matthews talked with several MSNBC contributors who said a number of shocking things, actually defending the violence.
