Tiffany Cross regular Elie Mystal: ‘Telling the truth about white people’ will get you ‘punished’

Elie Mystal let loose a Twitter tirade on Saturday in response to the abrupt firing of MSNBC host Tiffany Cross.

In messaging to his 480,000 followers, he went on a tantrum about the ousted host of the now cancelled “The Cross Connection,” who previously described Mystal as “our audience favorite” and her “pal.”

Mystal, a Harvard Law School graduate, is the so-called justice correspondent for the far-left Nation magazine who spent a lot of time dealing the race card on Cross’s conspiracy-theory pedaling show and others like it on MSNBC.

“Telling the truth about white people to white people can exact a terrible price on one’s career and opportunities. And our civil rights leaders know especially that far too often that cost is exacted in blood…Tiffany was special because she proactively centered her work and her voice in nonwhite audiences. It’s not that she didn’t care what white people thought. It’s that she refused to bend her voice around those forces. She was willing to pay the price to uplift nonwhite voices,” Mystal claimed, in part, in the rant.

According to Mystal’s verbiage, which may be a form of projection that identity-politics-obsessed liberals are known for, Fox News host Tucker Carlson and podcaster Megyn Kelly are “racist carnival barkers.”

He also took a rhetorical shot at Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk for allegedly “empowering” racists on the social media platform.

After news of the firing broke, Kelly asserted that Cross was “the most racist person in all of television.”

In a statement, Cross said, “While this Journey ended abruptly, surprising many of us, my work is not done.” She added that she won’t be discouraged because “The attacks on me from other outlets and former hosts will never control my narrative.”

Cross’s separation from MSNBC when the channel declined to renew her contract and immediately cut ties with her comes not long after Carlson wondered in a monologue about whether the board of directors of network-owner Comcast was okay with her incessant race baiting.

Cross perhaps might be regarded as the race lady 2.0, given that Carlson has previously dubbed her ideological and workplace colleague Joy Reid as the “race lady.”

Mystal seemed to portray Cross, who — according to him — was representative of the “risk management” that black professionals in the media have to engage in, as a victim in this drama.

“And so, they punished her. Publicly. Disrespectfully. In a mean way. As an example to other blacks in the media to… recalculate. They want us all to recalibrate the risk/reward matrix of telling the truth about white people while black,” he contended.

The hardly shy Mystal also implied that the he holds back certain opinions “because the white punishment I will face is just too damn high.”
