MSNBC charlatan Joy Reid appeard to be relishing in the negative attention she has received from her controversial race-baiting during the Kyle Rittenhouse trial—so much so that she doubled down on TikTok Tuesday as part of a shameless bid to keep herself in the headlines rather than reporting on them.
Reid ranted that the 18-year-old Rittenhouse—whose trial remained under jury deliberation on Wednesday, despite a defense request for a mistrial with prejudice due to withheld evidence—was similar to the plight of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
On one level it was an apt comparison in that both figures were falsely smeared by left-wing activists and media, and subsequently were prosecuted unjustly in the courtroom of public opinion.
Nonetheless, Reid’s claims—much like the bulk of her entire reportage and that of her declining network—were riddled with false equivalencies and inaccuracies.
“Brett Kavanaugh, who had been accused by a high school friend of committing abuse of her– cried his way through the hearings to make him a permanent member—an associate justice of the supreme court,” Reid claimed.
In fact, his accuser—Christine Blasey Ford—was a known activist who only had “remembered” her abuse decades after the fact when Kavanaugh’s name first emerged as a possible Supreme Court pick. The two were casual acquaintances at best, although the memories of both are hazy, and Kavanaugh disputes any sexual encounter encouter altogether.
Furthermore, Kavanaugh broke down only once during the testimony, while under extremely hostile interrogation from Democratic senators as he reflected on the impact that the smear attacks had taken on his two young daughters.
The bogus allegations against Kavanaugh ultimately were not proved to have any merit. However, left-wing radicals have continuted in their effort to stigmatize him as a way to conspiratorially suggest that the US Supreme Court is an invalid or “stolen” institution, which should be packed with justices of their choosing due to the lie that they, themselves, concocted to try to counter-steal it.
Rittenhouse—who stands accused of killing two rioters and wounding one last year in Kenosha—has also been baselessly smeared by leftist media, even as the actual case presented in the courtroom appeared to crumble under the weight of the facts.
He likewise broke down on the stand after corrupt prosecutor Thomas Binger illegally attempted to force him to relive the traumatic moments in which he was assaulted before opening fire on the three Antifa thugs—all of whom boasted violent criminal records of their own.
Although the ‘aggrieved’ in both the Kavanaugh and Rittenhouse cases were white, Reid somehow found a way to make a logical leap to her customary race-baiting rhetoric, if only by virtue of their shared leftist ideology—a racist dogwhistle if ever there were one.
“[I]n America, there’s a thing about both white vigilantism and white tears—particularly male white tears—really white tears in general because that’s what Karens are, right?—they Karen out and as soon as they get caught, bring the waterworks?” Reid ranted.
“White men can get away with that too,” she whined. “And it has the same effect even as the Right tries to politicize the idea that masculinity is being robbed from American men by multiculturalism and wokeism. They still want to be able to have their tears.”
Reid was recently challenged to a debate on race in America by Virginia‘s black, Republican Lt. Gov.-elect Winsome Sears, who slammed her dangerous hate speech. But it is unclear whether she has accepted the challenge.
Ironically, she herself was busted in 2017 for old blog posts that included homophobic rants and slurs, but never faced any consequences as a result.
Reid claimed that her blog was hacked but subsequently apologized.
1/x From 2007 to 2009 @joyannreid authored a dozen homophobic posts not only attempting to out Charlie Crist as gay, she attacked & mocked him for being so.
She repeatedly referred to him as “Miss Charlie” and tagged posts about him under “gay politicians.” (thread) pic.twitter.com/tRYvJ3lTc8
