When MSNBC’s smug host Joy Reid isn’t race hustling — which she generally does whenever her lips are moving —she’s more often than not ripping on former President Donald Trump, one way or another.
The latter was the case on Tuesday night when Reid stopped by CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to hawk her new book, “Medgar & Myrlie.” On June 12, 1963, Medgar Evers became the highest-profile civil rights leader to be assassinated at the time. His wife Myrlie carried on his legacy, including an unsuccessful run for a congressional seat.
“Shockingly,” it took no time for Reid to compare Republican outcasts Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger to Medgar and Myrlie Evers. Just as shocking, Colbert perfectly set the table to get Reid started.
I’m curious what you learned in your research for this book that is applicable to our country and the divisions that we have today.
Yep, that was all Reid needed (emphasis, mine).
I would say what I learned was about courage and I think that is the other theme in this book. You think about people today who are afraid to stand up to a former reality TV show star president because of a tweet. And yes, indeed people do face death threats if you speak against him, but a lot of the people who were facing those death threats can afford 24-hour security because they’re wealthy people.
That right there was stage 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome, folks — final stages.
Reid then talked just a bit about Medgar Evers and the civil rights movement of the 60s. I mean, you know, because that’s what her book is about — not Donald Trump.
This was a man [Evers] who had no money, he wasn’t even making enough money to sometimes afford his insurance premiums and he was a former insurance salesman. You know, these are people who went into the battle for civil rights with no resources, no support, and so I think about today the political courage of people who I deeply disagree with.
Reid then used Toby Keith’s death in an awkward segue to note the “political courage” of Cheney and Kinzinger.
Your Toby Keith segment really moves me because this is the thing: I disagree with Adam Kinzinger. I disagree with Liz Cheney vehemently on their politics, but that’s political courage to stand up to your party, to stand up for your country.
Nonsense. If Cheney and Kinzinger weren’t riddled with TDS and instead “stood up for their country” against then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for example, Reid would have blasted them into next week.
As she closed her deranged diatribe, Reid sickenly feigned:
If you love your kids, right? If there’s a fire in your home, you’re going to run to save your kids because you love them and in order to really have courage you have to access that love and so, I think that’s what I learned, is that there was so much courage back then and the people today, we have so much more, so many more resources. We need to have a little courage to save this democracy.
Yes, America, we must save our country from the devil’s spawn — Donald Trump. Oh, and his MAGA “extremists” and “white supremacists” and stuff, too.
Then again, we can just laugh at Joy Reid and her ilk and do the right thing in November. If so, revenge against the TDS-afflicted media will never have tasted sweeter.
