MTV’s Cox: ‘If Hillary Wins, It’ll Be Because Black and Brown People Saved Us’
Americans of color to Hillary’s rescue?
Americans of color to the rescue? That’s how MTV‘s Ana Marie Cox sees it. Appearing on today’s Morning Joe, Cox said: “I feel like if Hillary Clinton wins in the fall, it will be because the black and brown people of America have saved us, like they do a lot of time.”
Cox, perhaps best known as founder of the Wonkette blog, was preceded on set by Marcela Valdes of the New York Times, whose recent article noted the lack of political engagement in Latino culture [emphasis added]: “through all my conversations, I began to fear the real roots of political engagement, which lie not in quadrennial outreach programs but around dinner tables and in churches and classrooms, are far more absent from Latino life in America than most people understand.”
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: We’re joined now by MTV News senior politicals correspondent Ana Marie Cox. She joins the table. Welcome back. So, if you look at the polls nationally in some key battleground states, this race is a lot closer than I think one sitting around this table might expect it to be. And I’m looking right at you. What do you make of that, especially given your reporting?
ANA MARIE COX: Well, I think that it was interesting listening to her, listening to Martha’s [sic] analysis there. Part of me wonders about the voter-modeling turnout and whether or not that’s going to turn out to be accurate moving forward. I do know that there’s been a problem with Latino turnout, and I also feel personally that if — I feel like if Hillary Clinton wins in the Fall, it will be because the black and brown people of America have saved us, like they do a lot of time.”

Just seeing that reference “MTV’s Ana Marie Cox” made me spit out my coffee and laugh. Next maybe we’ll hear from “Teen Beat’s so-and-so”.
She’s wrong. Trump is getting about the same percentage of black and Latino vote as the last two GOP candidates, it’s the white vote where he lags, particularly the white college grad and white women vote. The real audience for his black church tallit extravaganza were the white college grads, and it was a failure.
IIRC that LA Times poll was “the good poll” or an outlier.
He appears to be gaining in many polls so, unless they’re a mirage, what sector(s) is he gaining in?
He’s gaining in the “has a pulse” sector.
Ironic since having a pulse is Grandma’s last bragging right. We know of course that not one single Trump supporter has been to college, much less breathed the rarified air of having an MBA or JD.
You sound defensive.
Actually many AltRight deplorables (their leadership, at least) have college education.
Of course, that’s one of your fatuous lies.
Paul Monofart has a JD.
Of course, T-rump sacked him…
For Steve Bannon, MBA. And SOS, with low honors.
Firing a lawyer once in a while is a healthy exercise. It can help keep the survivors focused. At least its shy of Shakespeare’s recommendation. Let me apologize, I should put /sarc in front of some statements so the more literal among us can parse more easily.
…or you could write intelligently…
So your driving to the hoop with psychology 101 and the AltRight paint job? Sounds like an intolerance of uncertainty. When do I become a ‘Coal Person’? Was it the MBA or JD reference? My guess is MBA.
Yes, they are saving us like they are saving the EU, only we haven’t fully ramped up yet, possibly due to concerns about that pesky 2nd Amendment.
The comment pool here is small and the topic constrained so the down votes are from who/what, Democrats I assume.
Some of the down votes are from people just trying to hit reply/comment.
What a disappointment.
I always attributed it to personal animus.
Some work hard to build up a loyal cadre of knee-jerk “down” voters.
If Hillary wins, it will be because the MSM, once again, spiked stories unfavorable to the Democratic Party. The Washington Post, for example, confessed in writing to doing exactly that for BOTH of the last Presidential elections.
There is currently a huge corruption scandal contained in the Wikileaks disclosures, involving an actual, written policy by the DNC to promote violence against American voters and blame the violence on Trump, which they did indeed carry out, along with the behavior that outraged the Bernie voters.
In addition, there was the fire sale on ambassadorships, SELF-CHARACTERIZED as “Pay-to-play.” Also, cabinet positions. Meanwhile, the best the MSM can do is publish a few bluntly-worded emails from Colin Powell.
This big story is corruption, and the MSM is spiking it.

Corruption doesn’t start or end with Hillary

Leaked email to Luis Miranda proves the “protests” outside Trump’s rallies are staged. Sad!
This is how Bernie Sanders voters got purged from voter rolls. DNC can commit MASSIVE vote fraud.

Thanks, I am not seeing anything current about the DNC encouraging violence thing, everything that pops up is from a dump in July. That seems to be more seminal than corruption, which is assumed with Grandma and Democrats in general. Makes me wonder if google search constraints are taking hold but I’m discouraging that as paranoia, for now anyway. The MSM is on the cusp of being allowed to outright lie instead of just spin. The handling of the Powell leaks shows that. Some just reported on the negative comments about Trump and left out the rigorous Clinton bashing.
Us = “Liberal elites suffering from group think and white guilt”.
Ahh, the Trump haters
By the way, My college educated family is voting for Trump…PHD…
That’s cool. Vote your conscience.
BTW, how do you feel about the T-rumpian Collectivist policies?
It’s a nice anecdote, but this is not a statistical trend. Try here, for instance:
Shoring up the white vote is a very good idea, but, unfortunately, Trump can’t even begin to understand how to do it.
Using the WaPO as a reference, there’s an objective source. Throw in Red States while you’re at it. Going up in the polls is a statistical trend is it not, unless there is a new statistics out there, maybe to shore up Climate Change. Winning is losing, war is peace.
The #nevertrumpers have 2 primary dog whistles, “New York values” and “vote your conscience”. The former is Ted’s War Whine, the latter, Ryan’s. But you know this, its obvious. They don’t strive for transparency, its just sort of baked in.
Another set of lies by a lying liar who lies. Typical of T-rump cultists.
Nobody I’ve read who will not vote for the stinking, lying pathological fraud who is Mr. Establishment ever employs a “dog whistle” or anything of the kind. They set out their reasons explicitly and rationally.
The boob who wrote that nonsense can’t deal with the likes of James Lileks, Jonah Goldberg, etc. So he just lies.
Ignatius J. Reilly off on another bummer. It keeps jerking itself around like that it could put its eye out.
1. As I recall, Trump Himself said he had New York values which He Himself said were different from Iowa values. Cruz’ crime appears to be quoting Trump Himself. I note in passing that that is an ongoing Republican crime of hate speech against Democrats, quoting what the Democrats Themselves say.
2. What is wrong with voting your conscience? To do so, one must have a conscience, which leaves out most if not all Democrats. Should one disregard their conscience?
Right, but Cruz used the term pejoratively, as if it was Latin for liberal values. Nothing subtle about it. Given the level of animosity it was all in the heat of battle. Since then however, its taken on a life of its own among #nevertrumpers who, as far as I can tell, want to appear like they have a monopoly on the true path.
Similar deal with “vote your conscience”. The term itself reflects what seems like a good thing for anybody to do, but it became loaded by Ryan using it in the context of his holding out his endorsement of Trump. This election is too important for symbolic gestures in my opinion so it may be a case where one’s conscience might need to take a back seat to the greater good.
Vote for Trump, don’t vote for Trumo, I don’t care. I am #neverhillary and pro American sovereignty and it seems like Trump might be the best shot to get there.
One thing is certain, IMO, if Cruz could go back in time, he’d leave that line out. He did not recover.
