If you’re looking for sharp political analysis and fair reporting then you probably don’t tune into MSNBC very much. There’s none of that going on over there. Instead, they have decided that Russia conspiracies and wild tabloid smears about Trump are way more fun than actually talking about things that matter to Americans that live outside of Los Angeles and New York City.
Nowhere is that more clear than with MSNBC’s Joy Reid.
It seems like every week Joy Reid is in the news for race-baiting.
For example, just the other day, she had a genealogist on to comb through Tucker Carlson’s family history in a lame attempt to label him a white supremacist for not believing in illegal immigration. Tucker made quick work of her.
From Fox News:
Tucker Carlson fired back at MSNBC’s Joy Reid for claiming he is a “white nationalist” for his stance on the nation’s immigration policies.
On her show this weekend, Reid interviewed a genealogist who performed historical research on Carlson’s family, tracing his ancestral roots back to Switzerland. The guest claimed “those in genealogical glass houses should not throw stones.”
“A single 19th century Swiss relative means you are now required to support green cards for everyone who jumps the border or overstays a visa in 2018. Boom! Case closed,” Carlson quipped.
Carlson called out the “irony” of Reid accusing him of racism, highlighting some of her rhetoric about White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and white Trump supporters.
“Reid’s entire public career has been built on race-baiting. … When Joy Reid accuses you of harboring racist thoughts, trust me, it’s projection,” said Carlson in his opening monologue.
That kind of shows you the kind of person you’re dealing with when it comes to Joy Reid.
During Trump’s SOTU address, Joy showed the world once again how out of touch she is with reality in the form of a really strange tweet.
You read that correctly.
Joy Reid believes that talking about church, family, police, the military, and the national anthem are “old tropes”. Basically, she thinks reverence for those things is outdated and that’s not a wild interpretation those were her words.
As you can imagine, Twitter hammered her for it.
Hard to believe that Joy Reid can’t wrap her head around the fact that the vast majority of Americans out there believe in those things and they aren’t antiquated ideas.
This really goes to show you how detrimental it can be for liberals to live in an echo chamber where all they are constantly hearing is people who agree with what they agree with.
Church, family, police, military and the National Anthem are hardly part of a bygone era, but instead represent the best of what America has to offer. In fact, we saw examples last night during President Trump’s address.
First, Trump told the story of 27-year-old police officer Albuquerque Police Officer Ryan Holets and is wife Rebecca.
“Last year, Ryan was on duty when he saw a pregnant, homeless woman preparing to inject heroin. When Ryan told her she was going to harm her unborn child, she began to weep. She told him she did not know where to turn, but badly wanted a safe home for her baby,” Trump said. “In that moment, Ryan said he felt God speak to him: ‘You will do it — because you can.’ He took out a picture of his wife and their four kids. Then, he went home to tell his wife Rebecca. In an instant, she agreed to adopt. The Holets named their new daughter Hope.”
Next, he honored Army Staff Sergeant Justin Peck and Chief Petty Officer Kenton Stacy for their service overseas.
These are the kinds of stories members of the left, including Joy Reid, believe are part of a “bygone era.” The reality is, men and women like Ran and Rebacca Holets, and veterans Peck and Stacy, are the American heroes of today.
A perfect example of why Trump won in 2016 and is in solid position to win again in 2020.
