Joy Reid’s old blog is a gift that keeps on giving. In April, homophobic passages from the site were revealed. Reid said she didn’t write them, a claim that even many of her liberal colleagues don’t believe. Then it was reported that she promoted a 9/11 “truther” movie.
Now there is a new controversy involving a vile depiction of John McCain.
Joseph Bernstein and Charlie Warzel of BuzzFeed have the story:
Joy Reid’s Blog Published A Photoshopped Image Of John McCain As The Virginia Tech Shooter
MSNBC host Joy Reid’s now-defunct blog published an image of Sen. John McCain’s head photoshopped onto the body of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho, according to a newly discovered post reviewed by BuzzFeed News.
The October 2007 post, titled “Baghdad John Strikes Again,” discusses the infamous claim from McCain, then the GOP presidential nominee, that he would “follow Osama bin Laden to the gates of hell.” The image appears at the end of the post, which was apparently penned by Reid.
The McCain post is the latest in a series of archived items from Reid’s blog that have embarrassed the AM Joy host and her network. Though Reid apologized for several anti-gay posts last December, she later attributed others to a hacker.

How bad is this? This bad:
Ok. I’m truly over it with this mess. First the homophobic posts, then the 9/11 “Truther” posts, and now this nonsense with manipulating images. And watch @JoyAnnReid blame this on a hacker… or better yet… Ambien. It’s time for her to go too. https://t.co/MDttdpM50p

As if all of that isn’t horrible enough, it has also been revealed that she once agreed with Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that Jews should be made to relocate from Israel to Europe.
Bre Payton writes at The Federalist:
In Old Blog Post, MSNBC’s Joy Reid Attacked Wolf Blitzer For Being Too Nice To Jews
In a post from The Reid Report dated December 5, 2005, Reid said that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, then-president of Iran, was really onto something when he suggested that the “Zionist regime” of Israel should just relocate to Europe.
“God is not a real estate broker,” the blogpost reads. “He can’t just give you land 1,000 years ago that you can come back and claim today.”
You can read the whole thing here. The short version of Ahmadinejad’s proposal is to make all the jews pack up and leave the Middle East so they can hide out in a German province somewhere and leave everyone alone.
