MSNBC host Joy Reid was trending on Twitter after she fulminated on Friday over the presence of black boys holding anti-CRT signs at a bill signing of the “Stop Woke Act” by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Ron DeSantis.extra sick“, “It is child abuse at its worst“
Reid worked in Florida for Obama and has a fiery hatred for Bull Connor DeSantis.
Virginia Kruta at the Daily Wire reported a tweet from Florida state Sen. Shevrin Jones (D) was what apparently set Reid off — “The fact that @GovRonDeSantis had these Black young men, who are not clear on this message, holding up a sign about something they know nothing about is the real indoctrination,” he said.
Jones provided no evidence to show that Jones’ children had been ignorant little stooges.
The abuse of Black boys in this way is child abuse. It would be fascinating to know the background of these children and how they ended up at DeSantis events. It is sickening to use Black children in this manner, given how anti-Black DeSantis can be. https://t.co/FUyS5GDNMw

“That sure looks like T. Willard Fair in the background. But I’ve been told by a trusted source that these were not Miami Urban League kids, Standing there as if they were going to the dentist. Any Florida journalists have insight into this?” Reid continued.
Christina Pushaw (DeSantis Press Secretary) tweeted, “I was at the event and helped set it up. My colleague talked to all the kids beforehand & told them what the issue was & what bills @GovRonDeSantisSigning was done. This event attracted hundreds of people. Those 50 that ended up on the stage were free to choose to be there.
Reid later touted an anonymous source that the children “may not have known in advance why they were there” — to help a “racist.”
Update: heard from a Florida source today that these Black boys who America’s most racist governor used as props came from a Miami charter school (I won’t name the school to spare them from MAGA harassment/threats) & that they may not have known in advance why they were there. https://t.co/9aOCOkLOpM

David X. Henry Reid responded on Twitter by posting a photo of Marcelas Owens, an 11-year old black boy at Obamacare’s bill signing. Ali Velshi, a CNN journalist, praised him, saying that Marcelas Owens was fighting back in the right way — with class and persistence. He also displayed a style far beyond his years. This 11-year old can be a model for us all.
Joy Reid, the Left and children were their favorite subjects when gun-control was at its core. MSNBC’s Joy Reid was the anchor of the DC event. The cause being liberal it was “The teenagers teach the adults!”
