‘Far worse than first reported’; Joy Reid blames hackers as more homophobic posts emerge

MSNBC host Joy Reid denies that she wrote even more homophobic blog posts than originally reported, and blamed hackers for “fabricating” the latest series of anti-gay slurs that were just uncovered.

In December 2017, Reid apologized for writing homophobic blog posts before she joined MSNBC. In those articles, Reid repeatedly mocked former Florida governor Charlie Crist as “Miss Charlie” when she was an editor at black-centric website the Grio.

Reid thought it was hilarious to ridicule a man by suggesting he’s a homosexual and then trying to out him publicly.

“Miss Charlie, Miss Charlie. Stop pretending, brother. It’s okay that you don’t go for the ladies,” Reid crowed in a 2007 post about Crist.

Charlie Crist has never come out as gay, and he has been married twice — to women. And if he were gay, that would actually make him a liberal hero according to leftist orthodoxy, so why the mockery? Also, it’s nobody’s business or right to out someone who does not wish to be outed.

Joy Reid also suggested that Charlie Crist married women to promote his political career. Meanwhile, she has never condemned Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren for falsely claiming she was Native American to advance her career.

After Reid apologized for making the anti-gay slurs in December 2017, the controversy died down…until April 18, 2018, when left-wing Twitter user Jamie_Maz pointed out:

“Joy Reid’s homophobic blog posts were far worse than 1st reported. They also had nothing to do with Republican hypocrisy on gay marriage. Joy also opposed gay marriage at the time. She gleefully accused people of being gay and posted a number of questionable things.”

Jamie_Maz slammed Reid for “using your media platform to out people you think are gay.”

Jamie_Maz also tweeted: “Joy writes that Karl Rove is known as Miss Piggy in Washington DC’s gay circles. Claims he is a leader of the gay Republican mafia.”

Separately, Jamie_Maz pointed out that Reid also mocked U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Robert’s then-infant son. Really?? Mocking a child?

Jamie_Maz quipped: “Joy writes a blog post about John Roberts’s son, links to some articles, and makes joking comments about him.”

Joy’s blog: “Does that make me homophobic? Probably.”

Jamie_Maz tweeted: “When Bush nominated Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, Joy wrote that the real question people should be asking is whether or not Miers was a lesbian. She then mocks the lesbian haircuts of the directors of NOW and GLAAD.”

In another tweet, Mazur noted: “Instead of just writing about a Sean Hannity interview with Dick Cheney, Joy again goes for gay references and innuendo.”

In this latest dust-up, Joy Reid issued a statement to Mediaite on April 23, claiming the new barrage of anti-gay posts were written by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog.”

That’s when @Jamie_Maz and the Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra noticed something even more suspicious: the links to Reid’s old blog were disappearing from the internet archive site The Wayback Machine.

Gee…that doesn’t sound like a cover-up at all.

Joy Reid (who’s not exactly a size 2 beauty queen) also fat-shames people.

Then, there’s this: Reporter Joe Bernstein of leftist website BuzzFeed tweeted: “The Internet Archive just posted a blog challenging claims by Joy Reid that hackers framed her as homophobic by altering Wayback Machine archives of her old blog.”
