MSNBC’s Joy Reid calls rural Americans the ‘minority,’ a ‘core threat to our democracy’ … and it gets worse

Suffice it to say that civics was not a class MSNBC host Joy Reid excelled at, if she took the class at all.

In a display of real privilege, Reid took to social media to say rural Americans — see white Anglo-Saxon Protestants — are “the core threat to our democracy,” supporting the blanket statement by pointing to tweets from a fellow liberal who claimed those who support President Trump “do not believe in the Constitution or any founding principles unless they’re advantageous.”

Reid was responding to a tweet from MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin, who pointed out that by 2040, the vast majority of Americans will live in the 15 largest states, with just 30 senators representing them.

Never mind that the U.S. Senate was designed to ensure EQUAL representation for all states, regardless of size or population — representation in the House was population based.

The end game for Reid, a prolific far-left tweeter who favors hateful rhetoric, is direct democracy — which the Founders went to great lengths to avoid — which starts with “the abolition of the Electoral College,” she added in a second tweet.

If the left have their way in America, every presidential election moving forward will be decided by California and New York.

The Republican Party may be befuddled by the ploy, but social media users are hip to the scene… and more than happy to give Reid and her progressive ilk a sorely needed civics lesson.
