Bigoted Joy Reid: Conservative Christians Are America’s Taliban


If there’s any query as to what left-wing journalists take into consideration the fitting, all it’s a must to do flip the channel to hatemonger MSNBC host, Pleasure Reid. Reid’s ardour appears to be spreading her bigoted beliefs about folks she disagrees with, specifically Republicans and Christians. That was apparent on her Friday evening present, the place she and her equally radical company spent two hours bashing conservatives for wanting elections to be trustworthy and passing legal guidelines to guard infants within the womb. For that final horrible deed, Reid claimed they have been like “the Taliban.”

However first, Reid opened her present dramatically wailing concerning the “Republican lengthy recreation, in its quest for final energy.” Whining concerning the 2020 election, January 6, voting integrity legal guidelines and even important race idea, Reid claimed Republicans have been those utilizing intimidation and “thuggery” to get what they need. 

Satirically proper after this, Reid’s company prompt Democrat intimidation could be the way in which to win on the polls, by scaring white liberal ladies. 

Reid requested, “Is it one thing like Texas changing into “The Handmaid’s Story” state, is that the sort of factor that it takes for folks to say ‘oh, this impacts me, too?’” 

MSNBC contributors Kurt Bardella and Rachel Bitecofer agreed, urging Democrats to aggressively portraying Republicans as extremists to “terrify” and “threaten” white folks to vote Democrat:

“You have to provoke and threaten white folks on this aspect with a purpose to have sufficient voting energy to win proper?” Bitecofer mentioned, including, “You’ve obtained to make suburban moms terrified that their daughters are going to be pressured to bear the child of a rapist or there’s a child that is going to kill them and take their lives.”

LA Occasions contributor Kurt Bardella agreed: “It’s important to combat worry with worry,” he said suggesting the left use pure disasters to fire up assist for local weather change insurance policies, and abortion: 

Once we discuss what is going on on proper now with Texas, you recognize, and it’s such as you simply mentioned: a rapist can impregnate you and that individual has extra rights than you do with your individual physique. That ought to be the advert that’s enjoying in every single place on this nation proper now. And right here’s the factor: Republicans need to invent issues. They need to lie about issues to scare voters. We are able to simply inform the reality about what’s occurring.

Later, Reid returned to raging over the Texas abortion legislation and the Supreme Court docket’s choice to let it stand. 

Complaining concerning the “actually sneaky approach” the conservative court docket dominated, Reid fretted to visitor authorized analyst Melissa Murray that the one approach they may save abortion was to broaden the court docket. That’s when she claimed conservative Christians wished to impose their non secular ‘sect’ on everybody, just like the Taliban:

The issues that the overwhelming majority of individuals need: ladies to have liberty — private bodily liberty most individuals need that, however between Republicans who do not respect the foundations and the legal guidelines and are keen to cheat and keen to do no matter it takes and now the courts being on their aspect and there now being a strong majority of them who need to enact hyper right-wing, principally evangel — you recognize, a sure kind of evangelical rule over us, which is Talibanism, proper? ‘That is our sect and you’ll stay by our sect whether or not you need to be part of it or not.’ That scares me. As a result of if the court docket is keen to do this, the place will we go from right here if we do not broaden the court docket? I am unable to consider what else we do aside from broaden the court docket? 

Additional revealing her neurotic paranoia about evil right-wing Christians, Reid ranted, “[The courts] are stacked now to basically suborn our democracy to their very specific model of right-wing evangelical Christ — what they name Christianity they usually’re going to pressure the remainder of us to stay below these guidelines,” Reid moaned, including, “That is no totally different than Talibanism!

She ended the section sounding the alarm to her viewers to be on alert: “And we’re simply watching it occur prefer it ain’t occurring. It is occurring, guys. Get up all people. Democrats get up!” she urged.

Additionally proven was a section from earlier within the week, the place visitor Frank Schaeffer, an atheist writer and progressive activist who’s son of the late theologian Francis Schaeffer, first trotted out the Taliban slander:

We now have a scenario in Texas, proper now tonight, the place the American Taliban, as a result of that is what it’s. There’s not an American evangelical right-wing motion, there may be an American Taliban, it is weirdly much like the center Japanese Islamist terrorists…[T]he evangelical voter in Texas who backed Donald Trump is now additionally the voter who is looking vaccines some type of authorities conspiracy and desirous to cease Joe Biden’s program to ship our nation from the covid virus…I need to say this once more. There isn’t a evangelical political motion. There is a new Taliban and their aim is theocracy. Which implies to take our Previous Testomony legislation and pressure secular Individuals, non-evangelical Individuals, progressive Individuals, ladies, folks of coloration into that field and this isn’t hyperbole. That is occurring proper now tonight in Texas. That is occurring with the folks dying of covid. Youngsters dying of covid as a result of pro-lifers have seen match to face in opposition to Joe Biden’s vaccine as a method to personal the libs. Their worth is to be actually bioterrorists…

So they’re doing it in a extremely sneaky approach. 


 

JOY REID: The issues that the overwhelming majority of individuals need: ladies to have liberty — private bodily liberty most individuals need that, however between Republicans who do not respect the foundations and the legal guidelines and are keen to cheat and keen to do no matter it takes and now the courts being on their aspect and there now being a strong majority of them who need to enact hyper right-wing, principally evangel — you recognize, a sure kind of evangelical rule over us, which is Talibanism, proper? ‘That is our sect and you’ll stay by our sect whether or not you need to be part of it or not.’ That scares me. As a result of if the court docket is keen to do this, the place will we go from right here if we do not broaden the court docket? I am unable to consider what else we do aside from broaden the court docket? 

REID: [The courts] are stacked now to basically suborn our democracy to their very specific model of right-wing evangelical Christ — what they name Christianity they usually’re going to pressure the remainder of us to stay below these guidelines. That is no totally different than Talibanism. And we’re simply watching it occur prefer it ain’t occurring. It is occurring, guys. Get up all people. Democrats get up. …
 

KURT BARDELLA: It’s important to combat worry with worry. Coverage isn’t all the time going to win the day. Info and truths should not all the time going to win the day….So, once we discuss points — whether or not it’s local weather change, “hey, proper now your own home might be on hearth, your house may very well be flooded, your whole livelihood may very well be wrecked.” We have to scare folks with that. Once we discuss what is going on on proper now with Texas, you recognize, and it’s such as you simply mentioned: a rapist can impregnate you and that individual has extra rights than you do with your individual physique. That ought to be the advert that’s enjoying in every single place on this nation proper now. And right here’s the factor: Republicans need to invent issues. They need to lie about issues to scare voters. We are able to simply inform the reality about what’s occurring. We are able to simply inform the reality about what Republicans are doing. It’s not that tough. It’s not that sophisticated. Democrats have to get away from this novelty that they’ve that, someway, the very best insurance policies and the very best concepts are all the time going to win. It isn’t. That is not the world we stay in proper now….It’ll take working a sustained model marketing campaign in opposition to the Democratic arsonists which might be the Republican celebration to win these elections arising.

REID: [Republicans] believed the elections have been stolen as a result of they do not imagine it’s doable for black and brown folks’s selections to carry and be legitimate, they suppose that if black folks vote, its obtained to be some sort of rip-off they usually voted illegally they usually’ve come to imagine that they usually imagine about President Obama, that his election was someway the results of fraud.

CORNELL BELCHER: Whereas it wasn’t simply that they thought it was fraudulent, it type of, on the ballots, it was fraudulent in a a lot deeper sense in that you simply — folks such as you and I should not actual Individuals. It’s about individuals who they worth as — as — as actual American. So, proper now, after they say, you recognize, the election was stolen, the election was as a result of — as a result of individuals who, fairly frankly, they do not worth as Individuals are — are flexing their political energy and bringing the ability to reveal, so you may perceive a substantial amount of it from — from that lens.

Folks like Kristen Sinema do not feel in peril. the folks up there the one people who I hear sounding the alarm in D.C. are the squad, Mondaire Jones, people who have lived this life and the speaker. That woman from Baltimore will get it. Past her — I see a whole lot of white democratic senators who’re very good folks, you recognize, however they do not get it.

RACHEL BITECOFER: Sure, right here is likely one of the issues of the numerous reforms I’m attempting to get throughout and attempting to get folks on the left to grasp. Primary, you do not need white folks to co-op something. It completely is a real assertion in these elections, the way in which the elections are aggressive and  performed out in aggressive locations on this nation. 

You have to provoke and threaten white folks on this aspect with a purpose to have sufficient voting energy to win proper?

We now have to discover a method to make these folks terrified, so it’s not simply that Texas is banning abortion. You’ve obtained to make suburban moms terrified that their daughters are going to be pressured to bear the child of a rapist or there’s a child that is going to kill them and take their lives. And till we make suburban American — and that cuts throughout races however all the edges of the left together with unbiased leaners — till we terrify them concerning the situation of democracy and the place we’re headed in 2022, we will anticipate a whole lot of damage on the polls.

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: What did George Bush say? You are with us or the terrorists. 20 years later, the place are they now? You are both with Trump’s terrorists otherwise you’re out of the GOP. That is what we’re really watching now with Andy Biggs and others. It’s gorgeous to see….Are you with the US of America or are you with Trump’s terrorists? Put their patriotism on the road day in and day trip. No extra ambiguity. It was a terrorist assault. FBI’s phrases, not mine.
