MSNBC’s ReidOut Host Joy Reid has built a career on rhetoric full of incitement and truly hideous rhetoric against tens of millions of conservatives and Republicans or anyone who dares to stray from her worldview, so it was no surprise on Tuesday when she warned that, unless they’re put down, “[w]e may be in the waning years of America as a democracy” as the “Jonestown”-like right will do anything to obtain power.
And along with a panel that assisted her in claiming GOP-appointed judges are illegitimate, Reid told viewers they should welcome “a number of rational, pro-democracy Republicans have spoken out in support of electing Democrats” seeing as how some Democrats aren’t “afraid enough” of their terrorist family members, friends, and neighbors.
Reid began with far-left fear porn that’s long since strayed into fetish territory:
We are just beginning ReidOut With a warning. You might be right. America may be entering its final years as a democratic country. Yes, I do. It is all I know. Yes, I do. This sounds exaggerated. I’m not exaggerating. Donald Trump, a lunatic autocrat and one of the major parties has made the Republican Party his sole focus. The cancerous spread of this big lie is now spreading throughout the Party.
Reid had a sexy exchange with a House Republican regarding a national divorcement. Reid continued her lunacy. “[W]hat the Republicans hope to turn this country into is so unthinkable — think Texas except everywhere — with the garish and despicable Donald Trump as the maybe permanent president completely unleashed with full control, once again, of the Justice Department, the military, the CIA, the FBI, et cetera, et cetera, plus the nuclear codes.”
Falsely painting the GOP as the pro-censorship part, Reid warned that the right must never be able to hold power again at any level or they’ll never give it up because they (and not Democrats) will never “honor the will of the voters”You can also ensure “the end of free elections.”
It is not known if Reid believed that her party was guilty of believing that the elections in 2000, 2004, 2016 were stolen.
Reid went onto to heavily quote faux Republican-turned-Democrat Michael Gerson’sRecent Washington Post Column before doing the same with Boot’s PostscreedHe had promised to vote for Democrats only, which was a welcome sign. She welcomed him on the A-block panel along with a far-left attorney. New York’s failed mayoral candidate Maya Wiley.
In response, check out how Boot admits he doesn’t care about the size of President Biden’s so-called infrastructure packages other than that Biden’s agenda should blindly be supported (click “expand”):
REID [F]The challenges to winning office and keeping it is double-edged for Democrats as well. They’ll have to overcome the built in disadvantage at the ballot box that are baked into the system to advantage rural voters, the apportionment of electoral votes, gerrymandered districts, and voter suppression just to name a few. That’s why a number of rational, pro-democracy Republicans have spoken out in support of electing Democrats. As conservative author Max Boot writes, “I’m a single issue voter. My issue is the fate of democracy in the United States.” He says: “Simply put, I have no faith that we will remain a democracy if Republicans win power. Thus, although I’m not a Democrat, I will continue to vote exclusively for Democrats…until the GOP seizes to pose a threat to our freedom.”
BOOT: This is the time for all small-d democratic democrats to come together in support of big-D Democratic Party. I believe that was the basis of my column. We’re constantly hearing about Washington’s debates about the Build Back better bill. It should be $3.5 trillion. Do you think it should be $3.5 trillion or $2 trillion But whatever. Honestly, I’m agnostic. Although I don’t know what size it should be, I know that I cannot look at the Republican Party in its current form and believe that America’s democracy will be saved if they are elected in 2022 or 2024. And that’s why I’m saying we have to vote for big-D Democrats until the threat to our democracy passes.
Next, Reid illustrated how she doesn’t exactly care what happens to the right, blasting them as “a political Jonestown” Straight from Guyana “this charismatic, cult leader and there were some people that questioned” Jim Jones before being “bullied or injured or killed” either by Jones’s thugs or by “drink[ing] that Kool-Aid.”
Having portrayed tens of millions of people as genocidal kooks, Reid fretted to Wiley that their side isn’t “afraid enough” Bear with us: “I see them out there arguing whether it’s going to be another billion there, another billion there on their bill like that’s going to matter if we don’t have a democracy.”
Wiley admitted that, however, she added that her husband has. “some hope about democracy because of Max Boot and he’s not the only one who’s standing up[.]”
Wiley explained that the right has always been this deranged and truly dangerous and was followed by Boot arguing the state of American politics was due to a failure of Republican elites to put down and drive into submission the party’s base voters.
“[T]his is really monumental failure of Republican elites, truly shameful what’s happened because there have always conspiracy mongerers, these racists, these nuts at the grass roots of the party but you’ve never had party leadership that has welcomed them,” gripped Boot
Meanwhile, Reid and Wiley found another culprit for why America’s such a dangerous place: the judiciary.
Specifically, the pair argued Trump judges (and even Reagan judges) were somehow illegitimate (click “expand”):
REID: Maya. I also think the weakening of the courts is a good thing. What did she receive when one of the Capitol insurrectionists was sentenced? 14 days in — in jail. They seemed light sentences. It has been very difficult for the DOJ to resist these sentences. Is part of the problem here is that — and Donald Trump is still walking around. You know, he has cases in Georgia. Is part of the problem is that our legal system and the Democratic Party are reacting to it to — too gently, too delicately?
Joy WILEY: There are two things we need to keep in mind, Joy. And one is that our judiciary is made up by people appointed by people who win public office. Talking about partisan voting, voter suppression, and other issues that led to a Trump-led administration designing the courts was reminiscent of when Mitch McConnell denied Barack Obama the constitutional right to hear his judges. This allowed him to slowly walk the judges. It is something we also saw in 1980, with Ronald Reagan. What we have is an ideological court in a way that we need to acknowledge.
Reid’s latest acts of incitement and poisonous rhetoric against tens of millions of Americans was made possible thanks to the endorsement of advertisers such as BMW, Charles Schwab, HughesNet, and Safelite Auto Glass.
