    MSNBC host Joy Reid has been accused of slandering President George W. Bush for declaring that Guantanamo Bay detainees were starved during his administration. “During the Bush era, we were torturing people in our custody in Iraq, etc. You know, starving people in Guantanamo,” Reid said during Saturday’s episode of “AM Joy” during a panel discussion about whether or not leaders should fear future prosecution for actions that occur during foreign intervention. Media Research Center contributing editor Mark Finkelstein didn’t appreciate the comment, which he called “not just a lie—a scurrilous slander.” “The truth is precisely the opposite. During...

    The apotheosis of the Left’s 21st-Century lunacy is its insistence that disagreeing with leftist dogma–declining to accept the “trans” farce, for example–is “violence” that demands suppression, while actual violence by leftists like Antifa–bashing people in the head with a baseball bat, for instance–is merely free speech exercised by “protesters.” No one in the world, with the possible exception of a handful of mis-educated college professors and students, is dumb enough to be fooled by that inversion. But liberals soldier heedlessly on. Here is a today’s instance of the phenomenon. April Ryan, a CNN personality, suggested that Sarah Sanders’ head should...

    oes Vice President Mike Pence care about your sexuality? And will the Left and the media ever get over it if the answer is no? During a speech a few days ago to the LGBTQ Victory Fund, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg said “If me being gay was a choice, it was a choice that was made far, far above my pay grade. And that's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand. That if you got a problem with who I am, your problem is not with me — your quarrel, sir, is with my...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” 2018 Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams said the Georgia “fetal heartbeat” bill that would ban abortion as soon as a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat was “evil.” While discussing a potential filming boycott in Georgia if the bill becomes law, Abrams said, “We have to be a state that is not only friendly to businesses we have to be friendly to the women who work in businesses. You should not have to worry about you ability to controlling your bodily autonomy because the governor has pushed such an abominable and evil bill that...

  • Reddit Page Bans White People From Posting

    A Reddit page dedicated to black issues has declared that white people are no longer allowed to post there anymore. The forum, r/BlackPeopleTwitter, posted an “important announcement,” which stated, “Due to the overwhelming number of white people and white opinions present on BTP, we are now restricting access to this sub for black folks only.” Non-black people then responded to the post by humiliating themselves, embracing their white guilt, and begging to be allowed to post again. “Super white dude here. I’d like to apply for the token white guy position,” responded one white user. “I won’t post or comment...
  • The 'terrible' hypocrisy that got Chicago's first black lesbian mayor elected

    CNN ^ | April 7, 2019 | John Blake
    Lori Lightfoot did something during her victory party last week that once would have been considered obscene. As Chicago's beaming mayor-elect stood at a podium, she turned toward her wife, Amy Eshleman, and kissed her in full view of a roomful of jubilant supporters while photographers snapped away. The images of that moment looked like a sneak preview of a New America breaking through -- a black, gay woman kissing her white wife before a mini-rainbow coalition of onlookers. And nobody raised an eyebrow. But focus on just the black supporters in that room and another image emerges. The black...

    How do you know Pete Buttigieg is seen as a real threat to Kamala Harris and other "diverse" candidates seeking the Dem presidential nomination? Because he's coming under attack by the MSM's diversity crowd. Joy Reid devoted a segment of her MSNBC show this morning to decrying what she framed as the excessive attention being paid to "the B's": Biden, Bernie, Beto and Buttigieg. MSNBC political contributor Jason Johnson [also editor of the racial-grievance websiteThe Root] singled out "Mayor Pete" for criticism. Here was Johnson: "It's Beto, Biden and Buttigieg. I mean, everybody's been kissing his butt, too. It's amazing...
  • Denise McAllister tweets weren’t homophobic, they were righteously angry

    There is strong public evidence that Denise McAllister is savage and also a dope for openly criticizing her boss’s wife. But contrary to what the Twitter mob says, there is no evidence she's anti-gay. McAllister, a conservative writer, was dropped Sunday as a contributor to the right-leaning Federalist and Daily Wire websites after a Twitter bender wherein she got into a back-and-forth with some critics. The day before, McAllister had tweeted about trying to talk to her husband only to have him tell her, “Woman, you know better than this. The game is on.” She explained in a subsequent tweet...

    I would be remiss if I let the day pass without challenging my colleague Eddie Scarry. Earlier today, he defended right-wing writer Denise McAllister — formerly of the Federalist and the Daily Wire, from both of which she's since been fired — for a Twitter tirade against journalist Yashar Ali. The tweets, which I won't relay here in their entirety, essentially amounted to McAllister attacking Ali's homosexuality in response to this tweet. In since-deleted tweets, McCallister then wrote: “A gay men commenting on a heterosexual relationship is just. Sad. Pathetic really. I think @yashar has a crush on me....

    Race was front and center on Wednesday night during a meeting coordinated to garner support for just one black candidate in Savannah’s mayoral election. With signs stating “Black press only” on the doors of the church where the meeting was held, white reporters were barred from entry, while black reporters for at least two television stations were permitted inside. The event was coordinated by the Rev. Clarence Teddy Williams, owner of the consulting firm, The Trigon Group, who declined to discuss the entry policy. Former Savannah Mayor Edna Jackson declined to comment before going inside, as did Chatham County Commissioner...

    Between claims of racism by the investigators and claims of a collusion “cover-up”, the crazy train was doing full speed out of the station. MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance was irate at Congressional Democrats, during the first half of AM Joy, because they weren’t pursuing impeachment, a.k.a “defending democracy”. “These guys are failing in their fundamental constitutional duty. Is it going to take Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to have to come and tweet something for them to get all worked up? Defend democracy,” he shouted.

    How can I impeach thee? Let me count the ways.... Still reeling from the pain of the Mueller report's failure to deliver any additional indictments, Joy Reid this morning fantasized a list of possibly impeachable offenses. The most hilarious, reflecting Reid's unfamiliarity with the Bill of Rights, was her claim that Trump's "attacking the media" could be grounds for impeachment. Reid said that while the criticism isn't a crime, "it's a violation of the First Amendment in a lot of ways."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • WATCH: Joy Reid Comes To A Real Stupid Conclusion About The Mueller Report

    Source: MSNBC Although the contents of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report have not been released, Lefties, including MSNBC's Joy Reid, are convinced the Department of Justice is "covering up" for President Donald Trump. They have come to this conclusion because Mueller is not indicting anyone else, including Trump. The reason Reid believes a cover-up is taking place? Because the Justice Department ran the investigation. “The fact that this investigation takes place within the Justice Department which Donald Trump essentially controls and that he got rid of the problem, Jeff Sessions, who the one decent thing that he did was...

    Keep hope alive! Okay, yeah, the Mueller investigation looks like a bust, and won't produce any more indictments. But hey: there are still lots of other investigations out there! The dream continues! That was the theme of Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Check out the mashup we've created, and you'll soon get the idea. From congressional investigations, to the Southern District of New York, it's investigations a go-go! The number of pending investigations was variously given as 16, 17, and even [facetiously, we presume] 47, according to David Korn! Get the rest of the story and view the video...

Because of course the group in our society whose personal biases are the same as those reporting and shaping what passes for the “news” these days are going to tend to trust the press. I...

    Court documents show that Bill Clinton took at least 26 trips on convicted sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein's notorious "Lolita Express" party plane. There's no indication that Donald Trump ever did. But in a segment on Epstein on her MSNBC show today, Joy Reid managed to refer to President Trump six times, accompanied by extended photo displays of Trump in Epstein's company. Number of times Reid mentioned Lolita Express frequent flyer Clinton? A New York bagel, of course. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
