MSNBC Host Joy Reid Claims Tight Presidential Race Shows America’s ‘Great Amount Of Racism And Anti-Blackness’

MSNBC host Joy Reid launched a truly vile attack on America on Wednesday night, claiming that the fact that the presidential race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump is so close shows just how “racist” our country is.

“I think partly because we knew the red wave was a thing, the red mirage, I should say, we all knew it was coming,” Reid told Rachel Maddow. “In the moment, it’s aggravating. And I think partly — and I said this last night — I do think it’s because we’ve been reporting for five years, Rachel, about Russia … undermining our national security, the impeachment, the racism, the Nazis, all of it and then COVID laying on top of it, [it] felt like a repudiation was coming.”

“I think even though we intellectually understand what America is at its base, right?” she added. “That there is a great amount of racism, anti-blackness, anti-wokeness, this idea that political correctness is some scheme to destroy white America, right?”

Not stopping there, Reid continued to shame America like it’s her job, which it arguably is given the fact that she works for MSNBC.

“We know what this country is, but still part of you, I think part of your heart says, you know what, maybe the country’s going to pay off all of this pain, the children that were stolen, with a repudiation. And as the night wore on and I realized and it sunk in, OK, that’s not happening, we are still who we thought, unfortunately,” Reid added. “It’s disappointing. And I emerged from this disappointed.”

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

This came after Reid was hit with backlash for calling black Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Clarence” in an apparent reference to Uncle Tom. Also on Wednesday, Reid said that if election litigation makes it to the Supreme Court, “do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law? No.”

Her full comment was that it is:

“not exactly clear that we can trust Amy Coney Barrett and Kavanaugh and these others not to be just like Bill Barr. And so, I think what scares people is that if…somehow they manage to stumble into the Supreme Court, do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law? No. I mean, it is a completely politicized Supreme Court that you can’t just trust that they’re going to do the right thing. Now, so far the courts have actually been pretty good. So, we’ll see.”

Reid can claim that America is “racist” all she wants to, but it’s clear that the real racist here is Joy Reid herself.
