Unnecessary rhetoric

MSNBC host Tiffany Cross on Saturday said that liberals need to "pick up a weapon" and fight against Republicans in a war for democracy.

Cross made the remarks during a panel discussion on "The Cross Connection" about purported Trump election interference.

What are the details?

Ahead of the comments, Cross asked guest Democratic Texas state Rep. Jasmine Crockett about how Crockett believes the country should preserve democracy during elections.

"How do we as a country protect this democracy when these folks don’t like the outcome of the next election?" Cross asked. "And Jasmine, you’re running for Congress in Texas where this is a problem, where they have partisan poll watchers, an open carry state, it is a very fragile situation that we’re in right now. What’s your message to the people that you’re running to represent? And what’s your message to our viewers today?"

Crockett responded by pointing out that she simply doesn't "plan to give up."

"I know that I wouldn’t be here but for those that fought before me, and so I’m going to continue this fight,” Crockett added. “We can’t let up. If we say we’ve been defeated, then they have won. But this is a war. This isn’t a battle, and we absolutely will win this war.”

Cross added that there absolutely is a war on democracy, and liberals and progressives need to suit up and pick a weapon for the forthcoming fight.

“It is a war,” Cross insisted. “It is indeed a war, and I have to say they have won some battles, Jasmine, but we have to keep our eye on the war and everybody needs to pick up a weapon and get involved because this is for the safety and lasting of the country.”

Cross in November made headlines after saying that some Republican members of Congress were "white supremacists."

And last May, she declared it was "time to burn it all down" when it came to fighting police brutality and the criminal justice system.
