Thursday night’s ReidOut featured one of the ugliest news segments one will ever see. Over the course of eight-plus minutes, MSNBC host Joy Reid and far-left race-hustler Michael Eric Dyson viciously condemned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a “racist,” “terrorist,” ventriloquist (or “geppetto”) controlling black Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron (R), and worshipper at “the altar of whiteness” who “doesn’t give a damn” about those in poverty.
Dyson was spoiling for a fight from the get-go, denouncing McConnell as “tone deaf” and “color blind in the worst sense of the fashion” because “[h]e refuses to acknowledge the persistence of the color in the culture” in that being “black continues to be a thing that generates such deep and profound opposition.”

After Dyson said McConnell was both an “unwitting” and “conscious accomplice in refusing racial progress,” Reid derided the Senate filibuster as a “good, old-fashioned, southern technique” used by McConnell to tell Barack Obama that he was “not a real President.”
Reid turned her ire toward Cameron (whom she’s had no problem condemning as a betrayal to his race), insisting he “lie[d]” in order to “let white offices off for killing Breonna Taylor.”
As for his mentor, Reid claimed McConnell was equally responsible for the “diminution of black life over the last ten years as Trump.”
If they had changed gears to something totally different, there would have been more than enough screaming Notable Quotables. But things were only getting started.
Instead, Dyson replied that President Trump should be seen as a “fast terrorist” and “racist” (in terms of enacting physical harm to black people) with McConnell should be viewed as a “slow” “terrorist” and “racist” (in that his policies lead to “racial revulsion”).
Dyson then went full racist, spewing venom about McConnell being proof that America’s “real religion” remains “whiteness” with McConnell at the altar and playing the role of ventriloquist controlling blacks like Cameron:
And to proudly stand up and say that he wanted to make Obama a one term President, this shows us that the real religion in America is whiteness. The real politics in McConnell’s orbit are whiteness. The worship of whiteness at the altar of whiteness genuflecting before the god of whiteness. And therefore, Donald Trump is the product of a womb that has generated this disfigured first person in terms of politics. But McConnell is part of that womb. Mitch McConnell gives life and breath to the very denunciation of blackness that Donald Trump has been so vehemently denounced for. And look, he then puts forward a black face representation, literally in Daniel Cameron, so that there’s a ventriloquism going on. Daniel Cameron’s mouth is moving. Mitch McConnell’s thoughts are coming through his tongue. This is the worst geppetto we’ve seen and pulling those strings is one of the most — was one of the worst white supremacist enactments that we’ve seen in the last 15 years in American politics.
Reid didn’t push back on any of that, piling on the hatred by insisting that McConnell “den[ied]” Barack Obama’s “humanity and right to even occupy the office,” which was a farce considering the fact that Obama was allowed to have cabinet vacancies confirmed, debt ceiling packages passed, legislation sent to his desk, not subjected to an impeachment trial, and even granted some judicial appointments.
The deranged MSNBC host also worked in another pot shot, claiming that McConnell (and not Senate Democrats) is responsible for the lack of coronavirus relief for struggling Americans (click “expand”):
REID: [T]his guy was against — he was for having sanctions on South Africa. That’s an actual true thing. For him to have devolved into whatever this is that Mitch McConnell is now, blocking the John Lewis bill on voting rights from getting to the floor, blocking people from getting rent relief, people are hungry, people are standing in food lines. People are suffering, and he doesn’t give a damn. If people can devolve that much, I don’t know how we reckon with race in America. Do you have an answer for that in this book? [LAUGHS]
DYSON: Well, this is what is true. First of all, he was mistakenly there. He happened to be there. He was accidentally there. He did not deliberately go to attend the March. He even admitted that he couldn’t hear the words Martin Luther King Jr. uttered that day and this many years later, he still cannot hear the resounding echo of an edifying, sonic appeal from a majestic trumpet of conscience like Martin Luther King Jr. He still is tone deaf. He still is incapable of listening to calls and cries of black people who say what will be done in the Senate to at least acknowledge the centrality of race and the degree to which black people continue to be punished by legislation and practices on the street.
And if all that was insufficient, Reid painted Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) as a betrayal to his skin color by allowing himself to be McConnell’s “faceman” for his “weaker” attempt at police reform.
Reid argued in a short segment before Dyson that “the bills the man Kentuckian first named Moscow Mitch has brought to the floor have been much weaker versions of House bills, especially the police reform legislation the Senate pushed in reaction to a comprehensive house bill following the murder of George Floyd this summer.”
And after a break, Reid added that it’s McConnell’s fault (instead of Senate Democrats filibustering) that police reform hasn’t passed.
To Reid, the Senate Republican bill wasn’t spearheaded by Scott, but instead a display of tokenism (which she falsely claimed had successfully passed): “[T]he House had passed a much more comprehensive one with chokehold bans and banning no knock warrants and qual — just — getting rid of qualified immunity. They passed a weaker version in the Senate and shoved Tim Scott out front to be the faceman for it.”
This vile, ugly rhetoric calling McConnell a racist, terrorist, and ventriloquist controlling black Republicans was made possible thanks to supportive ReidOut advertisers such as Gillette, Priceline, TD Ameritrade, and WeatherTech. Follow the links to the MRC’s Conservatives Fight Back page.
