MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid believes it is time for the Democrat party to forget white voters and focus only on minorities.
Reid, a known race-baiter who often uses her social media to push her white versus black narrative, made the bold statement on Sunday during a live broadcast of her “Pod Save America” podcast at Politicon.
“Democrats have all these things they want to do at the same time. They pine for the Trump voter who they think they can somehow talk into not voting for Donald Trump. You know ‘What did we do to you? How did we hurt you? If we can find some way to appease you will you come back to us please,'” she said.
“You know I’m wearing a little LBJ pin. It has been really since the Lyndon Johnson era which was the last time the Democrats won white voters— a majority of the white voters. And they pine for those voters. So they have that problem. And then they want to figure out well how do we keep the active progressive voter that is really excited and really interested and really wants to be a part of politics? And you can’t really do both and also message to the base of the party which is largely people of color,” she added.
“I do know if you needed 77,500 people,” Reid said. “It’s a lot easier to get 50,000 black people in Philadelphia, Detroit, and Milwaukee than it is to figure out what is in the minds of those Obama to Trump voters.”
After making such a racially charged statement, Reid accused President Donald Trump’s base of being the angry racists, as she spoke to Chuck Todd on MSNBC Tuesday.
“Wasn’t Arizona one of the last states to recognize the King holiday? So, it’s a certain kind of state,” she said, to start her statement off with her standard race-baiting.
“If you’ve been listening to right-wing talk radio over the last 20 something years, the same anger and rage and anger at the changes in the country, the same ethic, the same sort of, you know… vulgarity existed,” she argued while discussing Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake’s book “Conscience of a Conservative.”
She said President Trump tapped into the anger of white voters, expressed by talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.
“Donald Trump recognized better than they did, better than Jeff Flake did, better than John McCain did, that he could simply identify with the text of what people were saying on talk radio or listening to when they heard Rush Limbaugh, the anger and rage they felt all the time, the sense of political correctness, meaning, ‘I can’t say these things because I can’t keep my job and be in polite society,'” she said.
“(President) Trump said, ‘Yes, you can or I can say them for you.’ So, all Trump did was take a lot of the subtext and anger that was already there. He didn’t invent this. Trump is just making it open and obvious and Republican elites can’t stand it.”
Reid can find a way to make every issue a racial issue.
She even used race to politicize the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise by pointing out that he was saved by a “black lesbian police officer.”
Nothing is off-limits.
