Police Find Many MAGA Fans Don't Think 'Blue Lives Matter' | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


This is an excerpt from a special report on the rise of the “Blue Lives Matter” effort, documenting evidence that some political operatives have exploited the effort for an agenda distinct from "defending" police, featuring harrowing videos showing how Trump and MAGA fans brutally attacked, injured and tried to kill police at the Jan. 6 insurrection. MSNBC’s Ari Melber highlights videos from inside the riot and accounts from officers themselves, in addition to showing how this documented conduct undercuts "Blue Lives Matter” rhetoric. (This is an excerpt of the full report, which includes more context and ran over 23 minutes.)

    hypocrisy is the GOP’s calling card…

    • It’s a Christianity thing.

    • Absolutely!

    • Respect the flag and the police unless you use the flag to attack police.

      Respect the rule of law unless you don’t like a Judge’s ruling.

      Life is sacred unless it’s born. Then, use health care and a pandemic as political footballs.

      China’s lies about COVID were terrible. A US President lied about it to avoid panic.

      Condemn China’s failure to contain COVID when it surprised them, but let it infect your family at home when you had distant, early warning.

      Don’t investigate liars who raise reasonable suspicion. Investigate baseless propaganda traced to the Kremlin.

      Government should keep its hands off your guns and put them in a woman’s uterus. ID to buy a gun is oppressive, but ID to vote ensures freedom.

      Don’t send nasty tweets unless you target a liberal.

      Rhetoric is figurative, literal, or “just a joke” depending on what you want to believe.

      Officials shouldn’t go to Mexico during a crisis unless they’re Republican.

      Explaining China’s human rights abuse is excusing it. Giving ostensible approval of it to the Chinese President isn’t noteworthy.

      A President’s son’s Chinese private business deals is corruption. A President’s $5.6 million profit from Chinese, state-run companies while in office is shrewd business.

      Don’t believe the media unless it’s right-wing. Don’t believe a President unless he’s an habitually lying Republican.

      No cancel culture, unless you cancel celebrities, journalists, Amazon, Democrats, non-radical Republicans, protests for equality…

      Golfing monthly is dereliction of duty. Golfing weekly is networking.

      Don’t be China’s puppet. Be Russia’s.

      Don’t wage war unless you’re funding it in Yemen.

      Don’t tax and spend unless you’re deficit-spending on tax cuts.

      Don’t give stimulus money to people unless you trickle it down from the top.

      No welfare except for corporations.

      Presidents are crooked public servants who don’t know anything, unless they’re the 45th, who’s an omniscient god.

      Ivy league alumni are commie liberals unless daddy put them through Wharton.

      Evil Socialists create failed states, unless they’re killers trained by the failed Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

      Don’t cheat in an election unless you use voter suppression or the help of a foreign adversary.

      SCOTUS picks can’t be seated in an election year unless it’s a few weeks before the election.

      You must wait for an outgoing official to leave before you impeach him, when it’s too late to impeach him.

      A Senator can acquit a President who sends rioters to his workplace, then condemn him in the strongest terms, and then vow to support him if he’s on a future ballot.

      If you talk about Trump, you love to hate him. Now what about Hillary’s emails?

      Don’t let COVID stop you…from using COVID as an excuse to vote by proxy so you can go to CPAC and boo when they tell you to put on a mask.

      Elitism is bad. Now, let’s go worship a gold statue of a billionaire.

    Pretty amazing and whom attacked the white house ! ? And I am not on the left or the right i just know where the middle of the road is it’s called we the people whom voted went to court 61 times and do believe it was a fair and honest election despite the misinformation from the former president good day all be safe as our country going through these difficult times

  3. Blue lives only mattered up until Jan 6th for these people.

  4. WSupremacists: “Trump, fox, Newsmax, and OAN have repeatedly told me that I’m a victim, and that I’m being oppressed. And since I’m incapable of critical thinking, it makes me highly susceptible to coercive persuasion, or brainwashing, which makes it difficult for me to realize or even admit that I’m being deceived. So I guess the only option I have left is to go and storm the Capitol.”

    🎵 I’m blue,I will live I will die ..I’ll live ,i will die,I will live ,I will die 🎵 ..love that song so much 🤣🤣

    Oh WORD? They were just saying ANYTHING to demean Black Lives?! You don’t SAY?! 🙄😒😕

    • Knyght Ryder | March 1, 2021 at 8:52 PM | Reply

      Why would they where are the dead cops??? Hahahahaha confusion is the GOP’s only tactic

    • Dichone Lawson | March 1, 2021 at 9:55 PM | Reply

      👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾🤣🤣🤣 MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!!!! The emojis included

  8. They only rock that flag hoping the police ignore they’re stupidity.. hard to ignore

  9. Anyone there at the Capital must have seen what was happening and going to happen. Everyone there on the hill carries some responsibility. The former President bears it all, imo.

    Being a cop is a a choice a Job. Being black is not a choice.

    Police think their support was about them. No it was about being a republican specifically. Also about opposing minorities. That’s it. They don’t care about police.

    • It wasn’t even about “republicans” or themselves. It was only about cult #45! IT only matters them!

    • Yeah those hypocrites don’t care about police. Which is why they support defunding them. Oh wait…

      That’s the Democrats

      @Nick Dionne It is the duty of every loyal and patriotic American to utterly destroy you people… by any means necessary.

  12. TangentOmega | March 1, 2021 at 9:02 PM | Reply

    Ari, are you asserting that MAGA supporters may not really be the true blue, freedom loving, honest, American patriots they purport to be? I am shocked! If there’s one thing that has been illustrated repeatedly under the Trump administration is the unwavering and unbridled respect for honesty and the rule of law!

  13. Michael Schneider | March 1, 2021 at 9:05 PM | Reply

    The last honest President was Jimmy Carter !

  14. older people on social security, students at college, 18-34, 30, 40, 50 somethings who live in a household where one person accounts for the money needs,

  15. You aren’t telling Black America something they don’t already know! We’ve known it for 500 years and it’s not changing that’s the problem!

  16. Kwokman Chung | March 1, 2021 at 9:25 PM | Reply

    It’s just natural that people who don’t think black lives matter don’t think any lives matter at all. They also pretend that they care about the unborn.

    These are the very same types of racists Black Americans have been dealing with for years and years. That’s why we must insist that Congress pass the voting rights act. Watch the rulings handed down from the US Supreme Court on voting rights. Voting is a effective way for change. “You don’t need a bullet if you got the ballot.” James Brown

    You can’t fight this type of ignorance on the street. We will get shot. Let’s stay involved with our government. Vote!

  19. The “blue line” flag is a separatist flag!

  20. Daily Reminder: Trump called Covid-19 a Democrat hoax that will miraculously disappear.
    The first American death to Covid-19 was a year ago today, 03/01/2020.
