MSNBC contributor Elie Mystal, in true hyperbolic fashion, said Monday that U.S. rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) maintains a worldview that could lead to “witch trials.”
His comment was part of a segment on “The ReidOut” in which he and the host railed against Christianity as it relates to Supreme Court decisions they don’t like.
Even the chyron read, “Religious right ramps up efforts to eliminate separation of church and state,” which is an overstated and highly misunderstood concept among the left, the language of which appears nowhere in the U.S. Constitution.
Reid set up Mystal with a few jabs of her own directed at the Court, which she believes is decidedly biased and works toward “pro-religious outcomes.”
“Lots of different religions pray, but this Supreme Court has seemed to side very specifically with one religion: right-wing Christian religion. Not even just regular Christianity, just a very specific kind and they have ruled for them almost all the time. I think their success rate is something in like the 80 percent range,” she claimed.
She did not provide a definition for “regular Christianity.”
Aside, Reid was recently accused by journalist Glenn Greenwald of inciting violence in the case of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged would-be assassin. “We don’t yet know if this would-be Kavanaugh murderer watches Joy Reid’s show — chances are very high he didn’t since virtually nobody does — but she regularly calls the Justice a Christian nationalist who favors theocracy. Did this inspire violence?” he wondered.

Asked for his thoughts in the wake of the overturning of Roe v. Wade, Mystal replied the high Court is comprised of “zealots.”
“If you go back to the Dobbs decision, people need to understand that the premise that life begins at conception is an overtly religious belief, it is a Christian fundamentalist belief,” he said.
“It is not shared by many people of the Jewish faith. It is not shared by many people of the Islamic faith, or the Hindu faith, or the Buddhist faith, or any of these other faiths that make up our country.”
“We have tried doing the New World the way Lauren Boebert suggests. You know where it got us? To the Witch Trials. You know what happened? People died.”
Mystal concluded with a bizarre prediction that he might be a target for conservatives in Congress, not realizing the way he thinks of himself is probably far removed from what others think of him.
One must only look to MSNBC’s ratings for “The ReidOut” to see evidence of that reality.
“With this court we are not far away from that again,” he said. “We are not far away from one of these Lauren Boebert, Majorie Taylor Green-type of people saying, ‘I saw Goody Mystal speaking with the devil and helping women across the border.’”
It seems the very mention of religion, especially Christianity, has the same effect on leftists as splashing Holy Water on Dracula.
