MSNBC host Joy Reid gave a full-throated defense of Black Lives Matter, insisting demonstrators pushing for racial justice don't riot and blaming President Trump for the violence she said is being fueled by "white nationalist mobs."
Reid on Saturday shared a local Seattle report from June, suggesting that Black Lives Matter isn't responsible for the unrest because of the 81 arrests that were made at the time and included race in court documents, 32 were White and only eight of them were Black; in addition, more than 70 percent of those arrests were from outside the Seattle area.
"Let me repeat this for those inventing the idea of 'Black Lives Matter riots.' BLM doesnt 'riot.' They march against police violence. And note that those caught setting fires, assaulting and shooting people are consistently of the RIGHT, not the left," Reid tweeted. "So lets stop giving in to the narrative Trump and his allies are inventing to try and help him cling to power. Autocrats always eventually get to this place: accusing the opposition of being anarchic and violent to cover up their own rot and violence."

Right-wing mobs in Portland?
It sounds almost as if Joy Reid is suggesting that black people are too stupid to know when they are being manipulated.
But that would be racist, wouldn't it?
TRUMP 2020! #BidenRiots
Well joy why are they wearing BKM shirts then while they are protesting/rioting?
Seems like blacks were over achievers, as they make up 13% of the population and in this instance were hearty contributors at 25% of the melee .
This is why the BLM people want the white people with them because they can then say they are White nationalists doing the dirty work. The white people don’t know they are being used for that purpose but they are.
Is BKM meal at Burger King?
I know, all of this math is getting confusing
It is just the left skirting responsibility that is all this is.
I wish this womans show would be taken off the air. She doesn’t have that great of ratings and she just lies with abandon
Well, it’s official, folks. Biden/Democrats/CNN/MSNBC/ABC/NBC/CBS/NYT/WaPo have their new narrative, and it’s a doozy... All the Antifa/BLM rioting/looting/vandalism that happened for the past 3 months was in your imagination. Everything was just swell... “peaceful protests” and “righteous indignation” and “anti-fascist resistance”... until white nationalists/MAGA militias, spurred on by their grand wizard in the White House, introduced violence into the equation.
oops meant BLM
Reid also has experience as a talk-radio producer and host and worked for President Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008.
So in otherwords she is a skilled liar
I’m sure this is just making the 45 year old suburban soccer moms with their, handsome all-American insurance executive husbands, really comfortable right now. I’m sure they can’t wait for the protests to come to their quaint little main street towns.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid says... Blah Blah Blah, blah Babbabitty Blah Blah
Ah well, when all else fails - lie like a Dog!
This is getting out of hand. The coordinated bunch of lies coming out of most of the media should be investigated. RICO anyone?
Take note she didn’t say BLM wasnt Looting.
But thats OK if your poor and downtrodden.
When Barack Obama was president, BLM called for the murder of police officers.
