Joy Reid is an angry, homophobic, MSNBC Progressive propagandist with a laser focus on race… whose show I’ve never seen. I’m aware of her from references I’ve read, though.
Before today’s topic, the latest mention to come to my attention involved her attack on Niki Minaj. Minaj is a popular rapper with 200 million Twitter followers. I looked it up.
Reid attacked Minaj over the latter’s objection to CCP virus vaccination. Plausibly, Reid did this to boost her ratings.
1. Attack someone with 170 times more Twitter followers than your anemic TV audience.
2. Get moar viewers?
Reid, to Minaj, on The ReidOut (her TV show). Emphasis mine.:
“”For you to use your platform to encourage our community to not protect themselves and save their lives … my God sister, you could do better than that.
… For you to use your platform to put people in the position of dying from a disease they don’t have to die from, oh my God,” Reid continued. “As a fan, as a hip-hop fan and as somebody who is your fan, I am so sad that you did that, sister. Oh my God.”
“Our community” is code. Right?
For: “POC take the vaccination advice of black, female rappers far too seriously for their own good.“?
Minaj tweeted at Reid:
“This is what happens when you’re so thirsty to down another black woman (by the request of the white man), that you didn’t bother to read all my tweets. “My God SISTER do better” imagine getting ur dumb ass on tv a min after a tweet to spread a false narrative about a black woman https://t.co/4UviONyTHy” [can’t guarantee that Twitter link works, Twitter is blocked on my computer.]
Ah, the joys of internecine political warfare. Reid seems to have a propensity for attacking black people who stray off the plantation.
When I saw that Reid was attacking Winsome Sears – a black, legal immigrant, female, and first in all those categories to win office in a state-wide Virginia election – I initially wrote it off to standard operating procedure. But, it wasn’t Reid who drew my attention. That was her guest Michael Eric Dyson: Invited on Reid’s show to call Winsome Sears names, I thought.
I first ran into Dyson when he and Michelle Goldberg debated Jordan Peterson and Steven Fry in the May 2018 Munk Debate. These semi-annual debates are, according to PBS, “Canada’s preeminent forum to discuss the pressing issues of our time.” The debate topic: Be it resolved, what you call political correctness, I call progress… They should have capitalized Progress.
The whole debate is on C-SPAN, and is just short of 2 hours. It is worth watching the whole thing, but… For those unwilling to devote that much time, here’s a 12 minute clip wherein Dyson’s garrulous pretension is on full display. It’s worth a watch just to see how JBP handles being called a “mean, mad, white man”:
Dyson’s MSNBC performance was similar. To spare you watching the whole snake dance, here’s a representative snippet that’s only a 1 minute and 9 seconds:
If you are a follower of Joy Reid, or a masochist – a distinction without a difference AFAICT – the whole 8 minute race bashing festival is here:
Michael Eric Dyson: Winsome Sears Is “White Supremacy By Ventriloquist,” A Black Mouth With White Ideas
In case you’ve interest in others’ opinions of this spiteful man, here are short reviews of each performance from two different black men no longer on Michael Eric Dyson’s Christmas card list. Some interesting insights.
