My First Knife Fight? Leftists call knifings kid stuff after Columbus cop saved a teen from a stabbing
The far left has been mouthing so many phony, untrue things about crime and punishment in the U.S. that some of its unhinged denizens can no longer recognize reality.
That would likely explain why one Black Lives Matter activist, Bree Newsome, found herself the subject of ridicule on Twitter and beyond for jumping the shark on the subject of stabbings, which is the topic of the day regarding a police intervention in Columbus, Ohio, where an officer shot a 16 year-old in the act of stabbing another girl. Newsome's twisted herself into a pretzel over the incident to whip up the narrative that cops are evil and knife stabbings are everyday occurrences, effectively declaring the vicious near-disemboweling of a teenager in pink jammed up against the hood of a car at the hands of another teen, Ma'Khia Bryant, a sort of rite of passage for Black people. And after a torrent of ridicule, she won't stop digging.
Here's her first tweet, which, as of this writing, is still up:
Teenagers have been having fights including fights involving knives for eons. We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene & using a weapon against one of the teenagers. Y’all need help. I mean that sincerely.— DEFUND & ABOLISH POLICE, REFUND OUR COMMUNITIES (@BreeNewsome) April 21, 2021
Anyone who thinks a police officer shooting a knife-wielding lunatic in the act of plunging that knife into another teenager jammed up against the hood of a car, you see, needs 'help.'
Which prompted a lot of ridicule and 'wow' remarks from those reading her purported 'everybody does it' logic.
According to a few choice tweets from American Greatness and from out on the wilds of Twitter:
“we should let the kids stab each other to death” is quite the take— Caleb Hull (@CalebJHull) April 21, 2021
I remember the good ol’knife fights when I was growing up. Was cool. Like when little Johnny got disemboweled we just laughed uncontrollably on the ground. It even made Johnny chuckle. Good times.— Doc the Dano (@DocDano_sartie1) April 22, 2021
Remember all our teenage knife fights? My first was in the Paradise Valley Mall food court. She punctured my lung and sliced off an ear. Killed two of my friends. “They’re white,” the grizzled mall cop said to his rookie partner. “Let ‘em have their fun.” https://t.co/GPSnlQ4piF— Jon Gabriel (@exjon) April 21, 2021

Uh, I don't know what schools you attended but knife fights weren't a regular thing at my schools.— Neo Kaiser 0 (@Neo_Kaiser) April 21, 2021
If I’m about to be stabbed, I’d very much appreciate an officer saving me.— HenChick (@MakerMade100) April 21, 2021
But good to know others would prefer to be stabbed. That sheds a whole bunch of light on their mentality.
There was plenty more, she drew thousands of responses, nearly all of them negative.
But deep in the wokester world of unreality, she's stood her ground:
I would still hold the same position. I don’t feel comfortable calling the police for help because there’s a strong possibility they could kill me or someone else for no reason. Nothing warranted shooting a teenage girl 4 times in the chest https://t.co/VNUsdpkfQY— DEFUND & ABOLISH POLICE, REFUND OUR COMMUNITIES (@BreeNewsome) April 22, 2021
That's certainly not what Rep. Maxine Waters thought, given that she called the cops to provide her with bodyguard services as she whipped up riot sentiment in Minneapolis the other day. Some leftists are more cognizant of preserving themselves than others.
She joins others, such as basketball star LeBron James, President Obama's consigliere Valerie Jarrett, and comedians such as Kathy Griffin, all of whom one way or another share her view that the stabbing should have happened, and the police move to halt that murder was a jailing offense for the officer who saved the girl in pink. (Or, 'other woman' as the New York Times insists.)
Jarrett, for one, re-narrative-ized the incident from 'stabbing' or 'attempted murder' to 'knife fight' even though only one participant had a knife.
A Black teenage girl named Ma’Khia Bryant was killed because a police officer immediately decided to shoot her multiple times in order to break up a knife fight. Demand accountability. Fight for justice. #BlackLivesMatter.— Valerie Jarrett (@ValerieJarrett) April 21, 2021
She got scored a lot -- here's one tweet:

LeBron threw out his malevolent response to the incident where a girl about to be gutted with a knife was saved by the Columbus cop, by threatening the officer. According to TMZ:
A U.S. senator is accusing LeBron James of "inciting violence" against a police officer after the NBA superstar shared a photo of the cop with the caption "you're next."
LeBron posted -- and has since deleted -- a picture of the police officer who shot and killed 16-year-old Ma'Khia Bryant during a violent incident Tuesday outside of a home in Columbus, Ohio.
Body cam footage shows Bryant in a physical altercation with two other people ... and it appears as if she's trying to lunge with a knife at one of the other girls.
James, whether he had the presence of mind to recognize how crazy he looked, trying to threaten the cop, or because his lawyer told him he was making himself a sitting duck for a big payout to that cop in a potential lawsuit, deleted his tweet later, claiming the problem was other people, not himself.
LeBron is explaining his decision to delete the controversial tweet ... saying his message was "being used to create more hate."He added ... "This isn’t about one officer. it’s about the entire system and they always use our words to create more racism.""I am so desperate for more ACCOUNTABILITY."

The stupidity continues, and the left is twisting itself into pretzels to find some way to make that Columbus cop the bad guy and figure out a legal way to lynch him. It's mob activity in action and neither facts nor logic apply. The good thing about this is that people are starting to get onto them, starting to call them out for their hideous logic and willingness to defend the indefensible. Maybe this will raise questions in the public mind about whether these people are really our moral betters as the press claims.
