MSNBC’s Joy Reid rarely looks at life through anything but a prism of color, which pretty much explains why the left-wing network made the curious decision to grant her a primetime weekday show.
Reid has a history of spewing hateful things that can only be perceived as racist — though the left insists a black person cannot be racist — and she didn’t disappoint Tuesday night as a featured participant in the network’s election coverage.
Having Reid as part of their election coverage is a clear indication that the network’s base consists of primarily low-information viewers easily manipulated by ideologues.
With Democrats achieving a best-case scenario of a tight race in a few key states that will likely come down to mail-in ballots, President Donald Trump vowed that he will take the matter to the Supreme Court if necessary and Reid was commenting on that when she effectively called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas an Uncle Tom.

“If somehow they manage to stumble into the Supreme Court. Do any of you guys expect Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law?” Reid asked.
The “disgusting comment” came after she sneered at newly appointed Justice Amy Coney Barret and Justice Brett Kavanaugh, questioning whether these jurists can be trusted.
Thomas is no stranger to such a “high-tech lynching,” as seen during his confirmation hearings, which were led by then-Sen. Joe Biden — he was nominated to the court by President George H.W. Bush in 1991.
“This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace,” Thomas said at the time, after being hit with sexual harassment allegations. “And from my standpoint, as a black American, as far as I’m concerned it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.”
An accurate assessment of how the intolerant left treats black Americans today who reject the Democratic plantation.
Not content, Reid further denigrated the nation’s highest court for no other reason than the fact that there may be more conservative jurists on the bench than liberal.
“No, it’s a completely politicized Supreme Court that you can’t just trust they’ll do the right thing,” the MSNBC talking head added.
Of course, delegitimizing the court as it stands sets the left up for stacking it in their favor should they gain the reins of power.
Here’s a sampling of how Reid’s “racist” remark was received on Twitter:

This is a new low in broadcasting. She needs to retract this statement.
