After Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all countsFriday’s verdict in the Kenosha murder case was met with a shaming reaction from the liberal media. But of all the shows on Friday, MSNBC’s ReidOutIt was a must-see television show to see the lies of liberals and their serious efforts to split Americans over race and political party to incite racial tensions. Of course, they didn’t disappoint.
Host Joy Reid had already jetted off for Thanksgiving, but she joined fill-in host Jason Johnson as a guest in the A-block for a murderer’s row of vile racists, declaring Rittenhouse to be like “slave catchers” It was the givers of yesteryear “white men” Additional “freedom”Black people can be killed and their allies with little to no resistance. “legally.”
Johnson, along with other guests, warned Blacks and their allies about the dangers of varying from “white suburbanites”White, awake youth pastors should tell their students and to show them that they are woke. “be troubled,” “concerned,” “startl[ed],”They are afraid of white people shooting them under false pretenses of being “threatened” because, after all, it’s now “open season”These are their addresses.
Without any further adieu, below are the worst takes from Friday’s ReidOutThe following are listed in no particular order.
Verdict Was Thanks to Racist ‘Gun Laws,’ Legal System Helping Whites ‘Inflict Violence’
“[W]When we watch the criminal justice system in action, it is important to remember that it was built to accomplish exactly what it does today. This verdict was possible because of gun laws. This country was built on the idea of — that white men had a particular kind of freedom and a particular kind of citizenship that only they have that gives, you know, from the slave catchers on, the right to inflict violence in the name of protecting property. That’s, like, the foundational creation of the United States.”
— Reid, 7:04 p.m. Eastern.
IRONY ALERT: Sharpton Warns of ‘Right-Wingers’ ‘Baiting Violence’
“What you must also factor in is that, even when the George Floyd murder happened, it has now come out some of the violence in Minneapolis was done by right-wingers who pretended to be burning down places in Minneapolis that they were part of the movement and they were not, which means that now we can see people baiting violence to have a reaction to justify doing what Rittenhouse got away with today.”
—PolisNationAl Sharpton hosts, 7:08 PM Eastern
It’s ‘Open Season’ on Blacks, White Youth Groups, Youth Pastors, Anyone With BLM Sticker
“The first that occurred to me after this ruling is, oh, well, okay, now it’s open season. Like, if I’m walking around and I’m white nationalist, you know, coward little kid with an AR-15 and I see somebody drive by with a Black Lives Matter bumper sticker and I feel threatened, I can open fire. If I go by a youth group standing outside the local Target chanting “Black Lives Matter” and I feel threatened, I — I can open fire.”
— Johnson, 7:06 p.m. Eastern.
“[W]We are against this position. [for Black people]You could face the exact same violence as those who were attacked Trayvon Martin and Sandra Bland. The Rittenhouse ruling doesn’t just warn Black America; it’s also a warning for every suburbanite who has a Black Lives Matter sign in their front window. Every youth pastor chanting George Floyd songs in front the Walmart. From Lubbock Texas, to Lorraine Ohio to Lubbock Texas, every white dad who would dare to put a BLM sticker onto their car. They now realize that a black 17-year-old can shoot them with an AR-15 and they could be killed if they are feeling threatened. Americans are mistakenly convinced that they can protect themselves against the forces behind Charlottesville’s insurrection. Kyle Rittenhouse, Judge Schrader. [sic]That belief has just been blown. Only time will tell if enough Americans will heed the warning shot that was just fired off.”
— Johnson, 7:25 p.m. Eastern.
“My primary concern about this ruling is that it is now open season and that white nationalists and domestic terrorists across this country are high-fiving. What kind of impact does a ruling like this have for everybody, from the proud boys to militia groups from — from Savannah, South Carolina to Seattle, Oregon — Seattle, Washington?”
— Johnson to MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Nance, 7:26 p.m. Eastern.
‘This Is a Scary Time’ With Terrorist, ‘Violent Storm’ GOP Ready to Kill at Random
“[T]His GOP has embraced white nationalism. Now, they’re mainstreaming and celebrating political violence…This emboldens. This tells people that if Black Lives Matter is happening, grab your AR and drive to it. If you fear anyone, kill them, go on the stand, repeat what Kyle did, cry on queue and you walk and everyone should be concerned there’s a gathering, violent storm. The GOP is seeding and nurturing — it’s right in front of us. These are the red flags. This is a scary time.”
— SiriusXM host and NBC News columnist Dean Obeidallah, 7:29 p.m. Eastern.
Nance: Watch GOPers ‘Carry Out’ Their Own ‘Massacre’ in the Name of ‘Self-Defense’
“[A]Someone will at some point weaponize self defense. And when I refer to weaponizing it, I mean that they will have a Kyle Rittenhouse. And when you can anticipate or precipitate an attack, whether it’s bottles thrown at you, then not only can that person go back and defend himself, others can turn their weapons and carry out a massacre and say it was in defense of another person. This is going to get out of control.”
— MSNBC counterterrorism analyst Malcolm Nance, 7:28 p.m. Eastern.
Be ‘Very Afraid!’ There’s ‘Nothing…Legally’ to Stop Right-Wingers From Murder!
“[W[hat we need to worry about is that we have nothing in place legally. We have nothing in place culturally or socially to stop the next group of white nationalists, proud boys, MAGA people, whoever they want to take from this verdict when they want and to use it as permission to attack Black Lives Matter and Black Lives Matter ain’t just black people as we just saw…[A]nyone who supports Black Lives Matter should be very afraid tonight.”
— Reid, 7:18 p.m. Eastern.
Rittenhouse Was ‘Spoiling for a Fight,’ Will Inspire ‘White Mean’ to Murder
“Rittenhouse will be the pollster child for reactionary white men who want to take the law into their hands, who want to bring assault weapons to Black Lives Matter protests and who think that violence is a legitimate form of political discourse. In the eyes of the law, Rittenhouse is now actually the victim who the three men he shot even though the evidence suggests that Rittenhouse went to Kenosha spoiling for a fight — that’s why brought that semi-assault gun…I think we should all be troubled that other people who want to take the law into their own hands might view this verdict as an invitation.”
— MSNBC and NBC legal analyst Paul Butler, 7:03 p.m. Eastern.
‘Jury Sent the…Loudest Warning’ About ‘White Nationalist Terror’
“Kyle Rittenhouse killed two white men protesting on behalf of Black lives and got away with it. That’s the single most important thing to understand about today’s ruling. The jury allowed him to escape and could be convicted of other offences. This was the most important warning that white America received about white nationalist terror’s rise. Leaders, politicians, and journalists will likely ignore this message. Kyle Rittenhouse was able to kill Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and face no consequences because those men were race traitors.”
— Johnson, 7:27 p.m. Eastern.
Whites Will Use Verdict to Go ‘Out of State’ to Conduct Mass Shootings
“[W]hat I am concerned about is the precedent this sets for what people will believe that they can do under law when Black Lives Matter protests happen in the future and that people may use this as an excuse to go out of state and doing what this teenager did, believing that they’ll get away with it and, in some cases, getting away with it.”
— Reid, 7:05 p.m. Eastern.
Rittenhouse Went ‘Across State Lines’ (So What) to Help Business He Wasn’t Asked to (He Was)
“This is a very, very serious problem for activism because now we’re being told that someone can cross state lines with a semiautomatic rifle and kill people and say itself defense and they have this case to cite as saying I’m like Rittenhouse. Remember that Rittenhouse now has internships offered by Congressmen like some heroic hero. So, in the frame of one week ministers go to — to Brunswick, Georgia to — with Bibles in their hand and we’re condemned and he goes with an automatic weapon and he’s given offers of congressional internship. It’s America tonight. This is shocking. Not surprising, but startling and it brings a real threat to those white and black that want to stand up against systemic racism in this country.”
— Sharpton, 7:09 p.m. Eastern.
“[W]hat he did, by his very action of going out, going to a protest across state lines, being within a group of armed men performing what they call the Korean on the rooftop — right — defending a position, whether it’s a business or other where they were not invited and then getting into this fight where he killed two men and wounded a third that is now the template on how to protest against Antifa or Black Lives Matter or any other person that they consider, in the white supremacy world, race traitors.”
— Nance, 7:27 p.m. Eastern.
Race Hustler: ‘Black People Don’t Care About Race’ (But He Does)
“Black people don’t care about race. They are concerned about justice. We — we want justice to be done. He came out of his locality, took a gun to the police station, and then shot two victims. We care. It doesn’t really matter that the victims are black. It doesn’t matter to black people. It doesn’t really matter if the victims are white. It matters that justice was not done…Like, there is a pall of permissiveness towards white violence and black people, regardless of the wick — victim of any white instance of violence, black people know that, overall, white people armed with guns patrolling the streets being able to shoot whatever they want to doesn’t work out well for us, right? It is concerning that justice has not been done. There is a concern about fairness.”
— The Nation correspondent Elie Mystal, 7:11 p.m. Eastern.
Do you support the Verdict? You’re Probably a QAnon Person!
“This is a problem white America has to…look inward and don’t look for a black lady [like Kamala Harris]You can zoom in on her white horse and help fix the problem and your emotions about it. The problem is that there was an LA Times reporter who talked about far-right groups like the Proud Boy, and they were just absolutely eating their lips today. They were acting like they won the Super Bowl, according to this Los Angeles Times reporter.”
— Reid, 7:18 p.m. Eastern.
“Well, let me confirm for you that they are high-fiving. This is a significant victory for them. For some time, you know, the Free Kyle t-shirts and Kyle Did Nothing Wrong types of t-shirts have been going on for, you know, have been inside the white supremacy movement and had mainstreamed itself into the Republican Party world and by doing that, what they’ve done is that steeped Kyle Rittenhouse in the tea of white supremacy iconography, whether he wanted to be there or not.”
— Nance, 7:27 p.m. Eastern.
Do you want to intern with the House GOP? Go Out and Shoot People like Bernie Goetz
“And to think I tell my students that, you know, the key to an internship is being a good person and moral citizen. Apparently, you just have to go out and murder people you disagree with.”
— Johnson, 7:10 p.m. Eastern.
“[T]He’s basically Bernie Goetz. You’re — you’re going looking for trouble and then you’re going to try to claim self-defense…[T]he thing that concerns me is not just violence, not just what this says about democracy, but now you’ve got members of Congress, Republican members of Congress doing whole tweet threads offering this kid everything from internships to an opportunity to hang out with them at the House. There are members of Congress saying, “Forget an application. Forget being a candy striper. Who cares about your grades? Kill people for white supremacy.”[.]”
— Johnson, 7:28 p.m. Eastern.
Can’t See Systemic Racism? You’re an ‘Uncouth Idiot’ ‘Cow’ Eating Rosemary
“[T]The people who are blind can see. [systemic racism], who can’t see the bigger picture, there are like people who are chewing on rosemary like a cow and saying, “ew, this rosemary tastes bitter.” And it’s like shut up, you uncouth idiot. You should put it in your soup. There’s a whole soup here. There’s a whole soup of racism and if you only pull out one bit or another bit like you might miss the whole — the whole meal here and black people care about the whole meal.”
— Mystal, 7:12 p.m. Eastern.
The Men Rittenhouse shot Are Similar to John Brown, White Allies In the 1960s
“[W]hat we have to think about is not only the families of the two men who died and the family of Mr. Grosskreutz, they are — you know, they should be in our minds now because they suffered and there have been a lot of white people who have, you know, defended black lives and paid for it with their lives. That goes all throughout our history, going back to John Brown and you go through the civil rights movement.”
— Reid, 7:05 p.m. Eastern.
This Judge Was So Bad That Johnny Cochran, Law & Order Lead Wouldn’t Have Won
“There is not a prosecutor on the planet, okay, Johnnie Cochran mixed with McCoy from Law and Order couldn’t win a case when you have a judge behaving in this particular way…[I]f he is that common, what hope is there for any future cases that have to do with Black Lives Matter, that have to do with criminal justice if you have guys like this planted throughout the country who are able to basically completely put their thumb on the scale of justice when it comes to a case?”
— Johnson to Butler, 7:14 p.m. Eastern.
