BLM guest on Joy Reid’s show ends up charged with attempted murder of mayoral candidate

The Black Lives Matter activist who was charged with attempted murder of a Democratic mayoral candidate had once appeared with MSNBC’s Joy Reid touting gun control.

Reid had once sung the praises of Quintez Brown, the 21-year-old political activist and journalist who stunned many with his alleged shooting of Craig Greenberg, a Jewish Democrat running for mayor in Louisville, Kentucky.

Greenberg was not injured in the incident though a bullet reportedly did graze his clothing. Police charged Brown with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment after he allegedly confronted Greenberg with a gun in his office where he and other staff were meeting.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Chuck Ross pointed out the irony in Brown allegedly attempting a shooting when he had appeared in 2018 at the March for Our Lives anti-gun rally alongside Joy Reid when he was still in high school.

MSNBC still has the video from the event and Brown’s appearance on its website.

“At the March for Our Lives, high school protester Quintez Brown has a message for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, from his home state of Kentucky: If you don’t give us common sense gun reform, we’re going to vote you out of office,” MSNBC’s description reads.

Twitter users reacted to the resurfaced video and the irony of Brown’s once outspoken gun stance.
