Skip to comments.Joy Reidís Crass Career of Attacking Conservatives
Posted on 06/20/2017 5:40:03 PM PDT by Kaslin
With Congressman Steve Scalise still recovering from an attack by a crazed leftist, MSNBCs Joy Reid couldnt keep from politicizing the tragedy as she took a cheap shot at the congressmans record. On June 17 the host of AM Joy tweeted Rep. #Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet...
She then accompanied the tweet with a graphic of what were, in her view, his political offenses: Rep. Steve Scalises Record: Co-sponsored bill to amend Constitution, Define marriage as between a man and a woman; Voted for GOP House health bill; Co-sponsored bill to repeal ban on semiautomatic weapons.
Later that morning, on her MSNBC show, Reid disgustingly brought up a debunked charge that Scalise attended “a white nationalist event” and continued her trashing of the Congressman’s record: “Steve Scalise has a history....we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race. He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a white nationalist event...He voted for the House health care bill which....would gut health care for millions of people, including three million children. And he co-sponsored a bill to repeal the ban on semi-automatic weapons.”
Sadly, Reid’s inability to put her leftist agenda aside, even while Congressman Scalise was in the hospital, is reflective of her MSNBC career. After Fox News CEO Roger Ailes passed away Reid tweeted, on May 18, that his “main legacy will be telling a generation of conservatives that their deepest fears were real, and their crudest fantasies were valid.”
During the 2016 campaign Reid attacked Donald Trump and his supporters as racists, while praising Hillary Clinton as the most qualified candidate since Thomas Jefferson and John Quincy Adams. And during the Barack Obama administration Reid condemned GOP opposition to ObamaCare as she claimed the Republican Party was “asking you to essentially kill yourself.”
Before her current stint of hosting MSNBC’s AM Joy, Reid had a long history of liberal activism. In 2004 she was Florida deputy communications director for the progressive group America Coming Together. She was a press aide in Florida for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. From 2011-2014 she was Managing Editor of NBC News-owned TheGrio.com and an MSNBC contributor, 2011-14. And from February 2014-February 2015 she was host of MSNBC’s The Reid Report.
The following are just some of the most atrocious outbursts from Joy Reid, as culled from the MRC archives:
MSNBC's Reid Smears Trump Voters as Wanting to Kick 'Brown People' off Obamacare
“Trump won in the Rust Belt in those states saying he was going to repeal and replace ObamaCare because we thought at the time that he understood that his voters hated the ‘Obama’ but they liked the ‘care.’ They didn’t see him as a guy who was going to come and cancel their Medicaid. They thought he was Daddy Warbucks. They thought that he was just going to cancel undocumented people’s Medicaid that they don't get. They just assumed that he was going to get all the brown people to stop, quote, ‘taking what’s theirs,’ but that they were going to keep their stuff.”

“How awkward is it that the country that dealt with Nazism is now the country that we’re all looking to with hope that has a woman president [Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel], free college, and is being looked at as the leader of the free world while we have neo-Nazism a la Breitbart.com about to get a seat in the White House. My head hurts — what about yours?”
— Host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s AM Joy, November 12, 2016.
“It [claims of voter fraud] is a dog whistle to people who want to believe that African Americans are cheating. The dog whistle to the far right, the Breitbart crowd...Philadelphia and Chicago. It is feeding the Breitbart people who feel that black people are stealing our elections. That’s all it is.”

Joy Reid Admits It Felt Hostile, Weird to Be Person of Color at Not Inclusive RNC
“There was a lot of really angry rhetoric, a lot of talk about murder and death and tying it all back to immigrants, tying it all back an illegal migration and there was a really hard-edged theme...If you’re a person of color, this is a weird place to be.”
— Host Joy Reid on MSNBC’s The Place for Politics 2016, July 19, 2016.
MSNBC's Joy Reid Claims Clinton As Qualified as Founding Fathers
Correspondent Joy Reid: “If you look at Hillary Clinton’s qualifications, I mean, my God, since the Founding Fathers, has anyone tried run for president with more on their resume?”
Host Andrea Mitchell: “John Quincy Adams, maybe.”
Reid: “Maybe John Quincy Adams. True, true, true. Jefferson, Adams, I mean you have to go back literally to the 18th century to find somebody with a more packed resume than Hillary Clinton.”
— MSNBC’s Place for Politics, April 8, 2016.
“Can the Hobby Lobby craft store chain, and Conestoga Wood Specialties of Pennsylvania claim that covering contraception in their employees’ health plans violates their rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act?...The Court that will decide includes six Catholic justices — some of whom have not been shy about asserting their religion.... The question is, do you trust this Court to make those decisions?”
— MSNBC host Joy Reid on The Reid Report, March 25, 2014.
“Didn’t we do this before? Wasn’t it called ‘indentured servitude,’ where you come, and you pay all this money out....you’re not a citizen, but you’re legally allowed to work on the farm? This sounds like indentured servitude, is what they want....It is also a very ugly, sort of, ethnic argument, that they don’t want to add more brown people to the population of the United States underlying this argument....This whole premise is so racially ugly.”
— MSNBC analyst Joy Reid, who is also managing editor of the NBC-owned TheGrio.com, on MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner, July 11, 2013 reacting to suggestions Republicans might accept legal status, but not citizenship, to illegal immigrants.
“The only thing that conservatives and Republicans are sure of is that they hate Barack Obama, that their base hates Barack Obama, and that up to now, the media has refused to see the monster that is Barack Obama.”
— Joy-Ann Reid, editor of the NBC-owned TheGrio.com, on MSNBC’s The Last Word, May 16, 2013.
“Herein lies the great irony about the conservative objection to Obamacare. What are they actually asking people to do? They're actually asking you to essentially kill yourself, because if you get sick and you don't have insurance, and you can’t be treated, you cannot survive a catastrophic illness or they’re asking you, bankrupt yourself, because if you can’t afford to pay your bill at the emergency room, they’re going to bill you anyway. And then you’re going to be pursued by credit collections people, you could lose your home. People are literally going bankrupt or they’re dying earlier because they’re not getting preventative care....This is not freedom. It’s crazy.”
— Joy Reid on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, September 26, 2013.
What’s truly wrong is that she has a large audience.
Most likely pea-sized idiots like her.
If she does it's just because she was in the right place at the right time.
Melissa Harris-Perry shot herself in the foot (metaphorically), so Joy got more airtime just when liberals started watching more MSNBC as part of their resistance movement.
Her father is from the Congo and mother from British Guiana (Surinam). She grew up in Iowa and went to Harvard.
Want to bet she got into Harvard as an AA admission?
And yet neither of her parents had any history in this country, so no claim of injury due to their race from the United States (which admitted both of them!), yet she positions herself as a “victim” and benefits from rules designed only to redress past wrongs against American citizens of African descent.
So what’s her justification for her entire act?
She has no claim of injury from the Americans.
But she’s mad at one of them for being a real victim of a hideous injustice.
Her skin color is hardly an issue.
Based on her statements, I’d say a demon has taken complete control of her.
She is journo-trash. She just happens to have the right skin color and is a “womyn”.
I would not be surprised if she did, and I agree she has 0.0000000000000000000000000000000 claim from injury from Americans
One of the better Gutter Snipes the network has to offer.
Ironically, I had never heard of this chick until Trump took office; now it’s some outrageous quote from her every other day.
True, but she only works in broadcasting because of affirmative action.
She’s a hatemonger. MSNBC pays her well to spew hatred.
I defy anyone to watch Joy Reed for five minutes and tell me her IQ is above 90. At best. She is just smart enough to know what positions on all issues are P.C., and that’s why she’s employed.
