MSNBC’s ReidOut host Pleasure Reid and one visitor after one other spent Tuesday evening gaslighting viewers on a litany of points, starting from downplaying the Alexandria ball discipline taking pictures to insisting a January 6 fee would be the prime situation within the 2022 midterms to evaluating police to a “lynch mob” invading Iraq in 2003 to claiming Democrats have all the time accepted presidential election outcomes.
And that did not even embody the truth that Reid donned a sweater that bore a putting resemblance to the Palestinian flag, a individuals she’s made no secret about her affinity for (on condition that she’s an anti-Semite).
Reid began the present with a 13-minute block on the supposed paramount significance of Congress forming a fee to research the Capitol riot and, as a part of that, failed former Republican Congressman and MSNBC contributor David Jolly smeared his former colleagues who almost died when an MSNBC viewer tried to kill them in a Washington D.C. suburb.
After Reid requested Jolly “how damaging” it’ll be for the GOP to have Individuals “relive…the occasions of January sixth,” he mentioned it’s essential to understand what came about “was an try to undermine our democracy, to tear away our election, to undo our republic,” and thus under no circumstances “comparable…to the violence on the baseball discipline the place the taking pictures occurred of Republican members of Congress.”
Jolly and Reid each framed January sixth because the seminal situation within the 2022 midterms, so fellow MSNBCer Jason Johnson naturally agreed and lobbied Democrats “to nationalize this election as quickly as potential” since “2022 is theirs to lose.”
Within the subsequent block, Reid ignored the truth that Andrew Brown Jr. smeared North Carolina sheriff’s deputies as having behaved like they had been a part of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq once they shot useless Andrew Brown Jr. (click on “develop”):
At present, we noticed video of what it appears when the conflict on medication appears like precise conflict. Authorities in North Carolina lastly gave us a glimpse of the physique cam footage of Andrew Brown Jr. by Pasquotank County Sheriffs deputies almost a month in the past.
Police declare the deputies had been trying to serve search warrants and arrest warrants associated to drug costs, armed like a army unit lining 2003 Baghdad, no much less. At present, the DA mentioned DA — that the deputies actions had been justified beneath the circumstances.
He additionally argued that Brown’s choice to, as he termed it, flee, escalated the scenario from a present of drive to employment of drive, so sheriff’s deputies descended on a residential neighborhood armed to the tooth to serve a drug’s warrant to an unarmed black man in his automobile and inside 44 seconds, Andrew Brown was useless and in keeping with the district legal professional, it was justified….Is that the way it’s presupposed to work in serving a medication warrant on an unarmed man in a residential neighborhood? That appeared just like the assault of Baghdad in 2003, to be trustworthy with you. It appeared like they went in to, you already know, arrest a terrorist cell.
Maybe a fair greater racial arsonist, TV lawyer Benjamin Crump insisted the district legal professional had a corrupt intent and “whitewashed the investigation to justify this unjustifiable killing of yet one more black man,” and described the officers as “a lynch mob with weapons and badges coming to hunt a black man” when they need to have let him “getaway.”
The gears had been blown to smithereens within the subsequent block and completely illustrated why it’s a idiot’s errand for any actual conservative or Republican to seem on CNN and MSNBC, not to mention outright opinion exhibits.
Maricopa County, Arizona recorder Stephen Richer (R) joined Reid to denounce an Arizona Republican-led effort to audit the county’s licensed ballots from the 2020 election and oppose President Trump’s false claims concerning the election when he dared to notice the left has had loads of points with accepting election outcomes.
Reid fretted the 2020 fallout would develop into “the usual method that your social gathering behaves once they lose elections” and as a substitute of constant to go together with her, Richer shocked her: “Nicely, you already know, it opens the door to each events. I do not suppose that is now particular to only one social gathering.”
Richer wasn’t allowed to go any additional as Reid promptly melted down, saying there’s by no means been “any file of Democrats doing this” and hilariously claimed the left “truly consider[s] in democracy once they lose,” citing the 2000 and 2016 elections as the most important examples.
When Richer tried to double down, she once more flipped out and refused to permit for a debate (click on “develop”):
REID: Democrats do not consider on this, although. Democrats — have you ever ever had any file of Democrats doing this? The ache within the lack of the 2000 election was actual, however Al Gore himself presided over handing over the election to George W. Bush. Hillary Clinton dropping to that actuality present man who everybody knew was unqualified to be president. Everybody knew that. She — they handed over. You had President Obama, you had Hillary Clinton, who knew they had been handing the nation over to a madman. They did it. You can’t title an occasion the place — Democrats truly consider in democracy once they lose. Your social gathering does not appear to, sir.
RICHER: No, I — I recognize it and so, I do not suppose madness is particular to only one facet of the aisle or different, however this occasion, sure. That is — we’re discussing Republicans proper now. Completely and anybody who’s —
REID: No, no. Proper now, sir. I’m sorry. I am sorry. Hear, I recognize what you might have completed for democracy, however let me play you for a second. Only one second. That is the lieutenant governor of Georgia, okay?
RICHER: Okay. Georgia, yeah.
REID: He’s a Republican such as you. Let’s play him actual fast. Take heed to this.
LT. GOV. JEFF DUNCAN (R-GA): You recognize, this doesn’t should be a persona contest. This must be a coverage over politics platform the place we go to work on a regular basis and attempt to clear up actual issues for actual individuals. [SCREEN WIPE] However once you obtain dying threats from a whole bunch of Republicans across the nation, that is an issue once you’re solely sitting there, telling the reality.
REID: Mr. Richer, “once you obtain dying threats from a whole bunch of Republicans,” Liz Cheney has mentioned fellow members of her caucus have acquired dying threats and so they had been so scared —
REID: — of being murdered by Republican voters that they had been afraid to vote to question the previous President once they knew he was responsible. That’s not a each sides-y factor. Democrats aren’t threatening to homicide public officers as a result of they misplaced an election, sir.
As ordinary, Reid lied. Democrats challenged the Electoral Faculty ends in 2000, 2004, and 2016 and, in a ballot taken in December 2000, solely 18 % of Democrats believed George W. Bush was legitimately elected.
In 2004, some Democrats got here to consider John Kerry had received the election however was thwarted by rigged voting machines and voter suppression efforts. The late Christopher Hitchens embodied these conspiracy theories when he wrote in Vainness Honest that voting machines needed to be inspected as a result of the Ohio outcomes didn’t make sense. And that was simply scratching the surface.
And little needs to be mentioned about what leftists and perpetual By no means Trumpers got here to consider concerning the 2016 election with Russia and Trump.
Again to the present and earlier than ending on passage of anti-Asian crime laws, Reid had one other “Absolute Worst” section by declaring Andrew Giuliani was “absolutely the worst” and even worse of an individual than Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY).
Reid even cited his lethal nursing residence coverage, multi-million-dollar e book deal, and sexual misconduct allegations towards no less than ten girls, however defended his media blitz by gushing that no less than he “wasn’t a Republican governor proof against taking motion on the pandemic.”
Earlier than going onto why Giuliani was horrible for mounting a gubernatorial bid and defending his father, Reid shrugged off Cuomo’s lethal errors as a result of New York “might do worse” in the event that they elect Giuliani.
Reid’s Tuesday night of divisive, partisan, and racist gaslighting was made potential due to the endorsement of advertisers comparable to Allegra, BMW, Farmer’s Insurance coverage, and Tractor Provide Co.
