Joy Reid Called Out By Liberals for “Islamophobia”: Says Trump Supporters Are Acting “Like Muslims Act”

Muslim Advocates: “Hate and bigotry should not have a home on MSNBC”

MSNBC personality Joy Reid is infamous for her 9/11 trutherism and for anti-Semitic and homophobic statements.  We can now add “Islamophobic” to the long list of her offenses, and the left is not happy.

In an attempt to attack President Trump, Reid engaged in what the left likes to call “casual” [insert ism/phobia].  In this case, it was casual Islamophobia.

It’s been a while since I suffered through a Reid clip, so I had forgotten how sluggishly her brain seems to work and how inarticulate she is.  While her goal was to zing Trump for “radicalizing” his base, she ended up stepping in it with Muslim members of Congress and various groups by using the radicalization of Muslims as her illustration of how she sees Trump’s influence working on his base.

Setting aside the inherent problems with this comparison of Trump supporters to radicalized Muslim terrorists, Reid is now facing a barrage of demands for an apology.

Fox News reports:

Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. have called on MSNBC anchor Joy Reid to apologize after she suggested Monday night that President Trump has radicalized his supporters in the same way that “Muslims act.”

“Leaders, let’s say in the Muslim world, talk a lot of violent talk and encourage their supporters to be willing to commit violence, including on their own bodies, in order to win against whoever they decide is the enemy,” Reid said on her new show “The ReidOut.”

. . . . Reid did not mention the issue on her show Tuesday night, which prompted criticism from the civil rights organization Muslim Advocates.

“She spent much of the show discussing racism, however Reid failed to acknowledge the harm she caused, did not apologize for stereotyping Muslims as violent radicals and failed to address her history of anti-Muslim comments …” the group said in a statement. “By refusing to apologize and disavow her anti-Muslim comments, Reid is continuing to put Muslims in danger.

“Hate and bigotry should not have a home on MSNBC,” Muslim Advocates added. “Joy Reid and MSNBC must take responsibility for what they have unleashed by apologizing on air and agreeing to meet with Muslim leaders to ensure this does not happen again.

Indeed, Reid is facing a great deal of pushback from the left.

From the Daily Beast:

While receiving little attention following its airing, the liberal host’s remarks eventually sparked outrage when a video clip of the segment was widely shared Tuesday on social media by journalists and activists. The “how Muslims act” remark specifically drew complaints that she trafficked in “dangerous” anti-Islamic tropes, stereotypes, and generalizations.

MSNBC and Reid did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Zakir Khan, board chair of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Oregon, said the MSNBC star’s remarks were “so unbelievably Islamophobic it’s ridiculous,” asking whether she planned to apologize for the way she “stereotype[d] an entire group of Muslims.”

President Trump also weighed in:

Reid will likely weather this as she has so many other instances that have gotten less-deranged lefties cancelled, but the writing is on the wall.  An apology of some sort will have to be made, but if MSNBC is smart(!?), someone more “woke” will write it for her to read on the air.

Comments

Joy Reid has stepped on his crank like this dozens of times. Whitey would never get so many passes.

Conclusion? MSDNC and progs in general are flaming racists.

“Reid will likely weather this as she has so many other instances that have gotten less-deranged lefties cancelled, but the writing is on the wall.”

Meh. She is black Communist female, and I’ll bet that combination outranks Muslim in the Victim Olympics. I doubt if this will cost MSNBC a single viewer or sponsor.

“acting like Muslims act”

You see, they don’t like to admit it, but they know, in the inner recesses of their shriveled little hearts, they know that we’re right on all the moral issues.

As examples, they know that,
— Islam’s not a religion of peace but instead is a cruel, murderous cult
— socialism and communism, along with every other collectivist systems, are evil and have always resulted in the death of millions
—welfare handouts blunt personal responsibility
—and on and on. Add your own; examples abound of how wrong the left is

And most importantly, they KNOW, just like we know, that it’s a child, an unborn child, and that they are sponsoring murder in the womb. They know.

    Muslims, as far as I know, do not murder their children, but they do raise them to be homicidal murderers. And, blacks do the same, producing homicidal murderers.

    On the other hand, Muslims seem to have a slightly better work ethic. We are all supposed to embrace diversity, even when doing so is not our, and especially in our children’s best interests.

“While receiving little attention following its airing…”. It’s MSNBC. No one watches them.

Whipping out my hanky to dab at my crocodile tears.

Hey, how dare she slime Muslim terrorists that way.

I can’t tell which half of the comparison Trump’s objecting to.

“”….the inherent problems with this comparison of Trump supporters to radicalized Muslim terrorists,””

Because any right-thinking leftist knows that Muslims would never engage in honor killings or suicide bombings while screaming “God is great!” the way those ultra-extremist right wing Trump supporters do.

All the names we’ve been called …

Bitter Clinger Nazi Muslim Deplorable Homophobic Enemies of the Republic …

Rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? 😉

Another black person that thought they could get away with saying anything they wanted. Welcome to your own woke dungeon.

Who called of a political candidate to be disappeared? Who called for blood in the streets?

Who called for escalating weaponry and violence? Who called for punching a kid in the face?

(Hint: the name of these people are well-known, and they are Democrats.

Hate and bigotry ,is Reeds strong point. It’s what she is.

Joy Reid is pelosi without the hairdryer.

“Acts like Muslims act”

If I were Trump, I’d say, Is this a bad thing?

It was inevitable. When you make every class a victim class, eventually you will always step on someone’s balls.
