MSNBC Host Joy Reid: Republicans are a Bunch of Racists and White Supremacists

Friday’s ReidOut served up another dose of nonsensical conspiracy theories as MSNBC host Joy Reid and frequent cable news hack Dean Obeidallah grossly speculated about a hypothetical retirement of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a chance to move Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron (R) into the Senate and accused every single person who works in and votes for the Republican Party as nothing more than a “dangerous cocktail” of “white supremacy,” “fascism,” and “lies.”

The race-baiting Reid first felt the need to diverge on a rant blasting Cameron, who — despite sharing the same skin color, has different political beliefs and is, therefore, her enemy — for his decision in the fall to not directly charge the officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

Asked by Reid why McConnell even ran for reelection, Obeidallah responded McConnell may very well be retiring because he doesn’t align with the Republican Party anymore. According to Obeidallah, McConnell, as well as Gosar, “dabbled” in white supremacy:

“The GOP is Trump’s party. And look at it, we had 261 Republicans in the House and Senate combined, 17 voted to hold Trump accountable. Even McConnell didn’t, but he made that speech afterwards. The GOP is not the party he is a part of. So maybe he really feels like it’s time to move on. You know, he dabbled — he was partly dabbling in white supremacy. Now you’ve got Paul Gosar going to white supremacist events. And there’s no backlash. The GOP is a mix of white supremacism and fascism and dangerous lies and hypocrisy. It’s a dangerous cocktail—that’s the GOP. Maybe — maybe he’s actually had enough.”

Reid offered no pushback, whatsoever. Instead, she acceded with Obeidallah’s assessment and couldn’t comprehend why people “get really mad” when people like her and Obeidallah make absurd statements like that:

“I mean, people get really mad when people like you and people like me say that, but prove us wrong. If you’re not the party of white supremacy, then why do you keep letting them in and letting them have a platform including Donald Trump? You have to explain to us how that is not true.”

So much for the presumption of innocence. It’s important to note that when such a claim is leveled on the other side, the left-wing media cry foul.

Obeidallah and Reid also contended that AFPAC, organized by Nick Fuentes, was a “white nationalist” event, despite having an array of black, Asian, and Hispanic attendees and speakers.

Obeidallah interjected and attempted to analogize Republican voters to the terrorists that committed the attack on September 11, 2001, Obeidallah asserted all Republicans are white supremacists who are “complicit in the budding fascist movement.”
