Joy Reid: ‘What Happened to Tyre Nichols Was as American as Apple Pie’

Breaking News

Monday night’s hate-filled rant by MSNBC’s Joy Reid proved once again there was no low she won’t sink to in order to smear the United States and her people in order to further her radical leftist race-based agenda. Reid opened The ReidOut by making the appalling claim that the horrific killing of Tyre Nichols “was as American as apple pie.” Does Reid hate this country so much that she believes what happened is emblematic of America? If so, she can always leave and go to another country. Nobody is keeping her here.

“If you have a heart, what happened to the 29-year-old father, skateboarder, FedEx driver and amateur photographer should outrage you. It should shock and disgust you. As should the so-called brothers who chose to behave like a little blue gang rather than as black men,” Reid said at the beginning of her show.

In the very next breath, Reid lashed out: “But it damn sure shouldn’t surprise you. What happened to Tyre Nichols was as American as apple pie.” Reid never explained how a gang of rogue city cops beating up and killing an unarmed black man represents America, especially when it seems like most Americans were appalled by the situation.

Later on, Reid aired a portion of the racially divisive and historically inaccurate 1619 Project film to help make her case. When she returned live, Reid went on another fact-challenged anti-American rant. (Click expand to read):

404 years later, the United States is still a land of subjects and citizens. I mean it’s more subtle, of course, but the basic structure is still the same. White Americans unless you are poor or disabled, enjoy the full benefits of citizenship. You can generally vote without impediment as long as you’re not a woke student who prefers the convenience of a drop box. 

Your family has never faced violent reprisals for trying to go to school or to work. You can live wherever you want without fear of reprisal, rejection, redlining artificially reduced property values, or your neighbors calling 911 because they don’t believe you live there. Historically, America’s citizens have felt free to lynch, to riot, numerous times from reconstruction through the 1930s. All the way up to January 6, 2021. 

They have felt entitled to overthrow the government when they don’t like the outcome of an election. As a citizen, the police generally serve and protect you. Your property, and your social comfort. Citizens feel free to scream at the police when they’re pulled over or even to swing their fists at them. They get fed by the police after they gun down a church full of worshipers. They calmly surrender after committing a massacre. But those in this country who are still treated as subjects, black folks, regardless of wealth or status, brown folks, AAPI Americans, poor white folks.Non-white immigrants and others who live at the margins of citizenship live with the constant risk of housing and job discrimination based on your race, your social status, your hairstyle, or your last name.

Returning to the police brutality topic, Reid cried that African-Americans are treated differently by police officers for no reason other than the color of their skin color:

And then there is the often rude, dismissive, cruel, and too often brutal and sometimes deadly policing which again was designed to control you and keep you socially confined to a status of inferiority and fear regardless of how fervently you comply, how high you raise your hands, or how much you scream or beg or cry out for your mom.

“It literally doesn’t matter whether the police officer is white or looks like you, grew up like you, or could without that uniform on, be you. It’s not the race of the officer, it’s the design of the system,” Reid’s claimed, because “occasionally, some of the slave catchers were black.” 

Reid ended by getting in an attack on Republicans who were fighting against racial indoctrination in schools: “And now you understand why the right doesn’t want your kids to know this country’s actual history, or for you to know it. Because they fear that if you knew, you might want to do something about it. In fact, you might even demand it.” 

This anti-American screed by the demonic Joy Reid was made possible by Lincoln. Their information is linked.

JOY REID: Now, if you have a heart, what happened to the 29-year-old father, skateboarder, FedEx driver and amateur photographer should outrage you. It should shock and disgust you. As should the so-called brothers who chose to behave like a little blue gang rather than as black men. But it damn sure shouldn’t surprise you.

REID: 404 years later, the United States is still a land of subjects and citizens. I mean it’s more subtle, of course, but the basic structure is still the same. White Americans unless you are poor or disabled, enjoy the full benefits of citizenship. You can generally vote without impediment as long as you’re not a woke student who prefers the convenience of a drop box. 

Your family has never faced violent reprisals for trying to go to school or to work. You can live wherever you want without fear of reprisal, rejection, redlining artificially reduced property values, or your neighbors calling 911 because they don’t believe you live there. Historically, America’s citizens have felt free to lynch, to riot, numerous times from reconstruction through the 1930s. All the way up to January 6, 2021. 

They have felt entitled to overthrow the government when they don’t like the outcome of an election. As a citizen, the police generally serve and protect you. Your property, and your social comfort. Citizens feel free to scream at the police when they’re pulled over or even to swing their fists at them. They get fed by the police after they gun down a church full of worshipers. They calmly surrender after committing a massacre. But those in this country who are still treated as subjects, black folks, regardless of wealth or status, brown folks, AAPI Americans, poor white folks.

Non-white immigrants and others who live at the margins of citizenship live with the constant risk of housing and job discrimination based on your race, your social status, your hairstyle, or your last name. Higher interest rates and inadequate services in the zip codes you somehow always seem to get routed to. You might face discrimination at the airport, an extra surveillance based on the outward manifestation of your religion. 

And then there is the often rude, dismissive, cruel, and too often brutal and sometimes deadly policing which again was designed to control you and keep you socially confined to a status of inferiority and fear regardless of how fervently you comply, how high you raise your hands, or how much you scream or beg or cry out for your mom. 

And it literally doesn’t matter whether the police officer is white or looks like you, grew up like you, or could without that uniform on, be you. It’s not the race of the officer, it’s the design of the system. Again, occasionally, some of the slave catchers were black. Subjects endure the media and the National Guard, assuming they’re going to riot at any moment, even though the cops who did the killing were arrested and charged and even though it’s the police who tend to break up black vigils with tear gas and batons, not the other way around. Subjects face disapproving questions about what they did to cause their own death. Subjects fear for their children every day of their lives. 

Even when by the grace of God they make it to adulthood because they understand at any day or time they could meet up with the wrong cop on the wrong day and become the next hashtag. And subjects often turn their despair on each other or on their own communities. Those are the two Americas. And now you understand why the right doesn’t want your kids to know this country’s actual history, or for you to know it. Because they fear that if you knew, you might want to do something about it. In fact, you might even demand it.
