MSNBC’s Joy Reid makes a toast to bully who harassed Tucker Carlson in front of his daughter

Over the weekend, an overweight, unkempt left-wing extremist confronted Tucker Carlson, harassing him in front of his daughter while the vacationing Fox News host was shopping at a fly shop in Montana.

Carlson handled the incident smartly, trying to appeal to the man’s sense of decency by reminding him that his daughter was present, only to have the lunatic, as dubbed by a social media user, arrogantly declare, “I don’t care.”

The bully proceeded to inform Carlson that he was “the worst human being known to man,” and his rant drew widespread praise from the left. Included among those was MSNBC host Joy Reid, whom Carlson often refers to as the “angry race lady.”

Which should come as no surprise, given that this is the cabal that lionized U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., when the 82-year-old lawmaker told supporters to get in the faces of Republican officials in the Trump administration and “push back on them, and tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

“This gentleman from Montana should never have to pay for another beer as long as he lives. Cheees to this man,” Reid tweeted, along with video footage of the incident — upon realizing she butchered the spelling of “cheers,” the MSNBC host added: “Haha CHEERS NOT CHEESE but hell, give him free cheese too!”

Can you just imagine how long and loud Reid would have whined had someone approached her in a similar manner while out in the public, given how she walks through life as a perpetual victim?

And to be clear, Reid doubled down on endorsing uncivilized behavior, as seen in the response to an unhinged liberal caller who told Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., to “get f**ked” during a virtual town hall.

“Free beer, cocktails or throw in cheese as well for this shero!!” Reid tweeted.

MSNBC must be proud. Not lost in the mix is that Reid is actually encouraging such behavior — stay tuned to see if she can score an interview with the oaf sometime this week.

Our politics have become so polarizing and the divide so bitterly deep that we cannot even agree that it’s wrong for the man to behave as he did toward Carlson in front of his family.

Not when Carlson has taken on a position once held by his predecessor, Bill O’Reilly, that being perhaps the most effective voice on the right in calling attention to not only the actions of the left but the intended meaning behind many of those actions. Being in such a role also makes that person among the most hated on the left, and he will find himself the frequent target of those who wish to destroy him.

But then, Carlson is learning this the hard way, after it was reported last week that the National Security Agency unmasked him at the request of a government official while asserting that he was not targeted in the collection of information. The NSA had earlier denied Carlson’s claim that his electronic communications were being monitored.

(Gone are the days when Americans believed the U.S. intelligence apparatus was a non-political entity.)

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter reminding Reid that these are the rules she’s choosing:
