Joy Reid’s outrage against Dilbert creator oozes with hilarious irony

No race-related issue can truly be considered covered until MSNBC’s resident hustler drops a take. At least that’s how it seemed when host Joy Reid injected her trademark flavor of outrage against “Dilbert” creator Scott Adams on Monday.

It’s been nearly a week since Adams discussed a Rasmussen poll on his podcast, “Coffee with Scott Adams,” that left him convinced “half of all blacks” are a “hate group.” Since then, the comic strip creator has already experienced the backlash of cancel culture and had time to leisurely double down while taking shots at the hypocrisy of corporate media.

So, just when you thought all that could be said on the subject had been said, “The ReidOut” opened with a raving, double standard-filled monologue that once again highlighted Reid’s own animus toward anyone or anything not overtly benefiting black Americans.

“People don’t even feel bad about their anti-blackness these days,” she contended after arguing former President Donald Trump had normalized racism and misogyny. “They are grossly, actually kind of proud of it. Case in point, ‘Dilbert,’ the widely-syndicated comic strip about office culture that appeared in 2000 newspapers around the world.”

“You may be familiar with the comic, but maybe not its creator, Scott Adams. Frankly, I had no idea who the guy was. Well, until he went on a racist rant on YouTube last Wednesday,” Reid continued before she played edited clips from Adams’s podcast, leaving out much of the supportive argument and focusing on the most salacious comments.

As initially reported, the cartoonist had shared the findings of Rasmussen that showed 26 percent of black respondents said it’s “not OK to be white” and 21 percent said, “They weren’t sure.”

“That’s 47 percent of blacks not willing to say it’s okay to be white,” Adams detailed before concluding, “If nearly half of all blacks are not okay with white people — according to this poll, not according to me, according to this poll — that’s a hate group.”

“Well, how will black folk ever survive without you, whoever you are?” Reid sniped before misrepresenting Adams’ remarks to be against all black people, rather than the 47 percent he had focused on, while contributing her own race-centered views.

“Okay, there is a lot to unpack there; the unabashed anti-blackness and racism, but also this country’s long history of dubbing black people as the hateful, violent ones, while also exposing this weird offensive belief that white people need to get something out of helping others,” she said.

“And again, what has this guy ever done for anyone that’s black?” she went on before listing some of the outlets that had canceled running “Dilbert” comics because of what was said.

“Also, that part the Dilbert guy mentioned about a poll? He was talking about a poll by Rasmussen Reports, the right-wing polling outfit that found 53 percent of black Americans agreed with the statement ‘It’s okay to be white,'” the host said, evidently determined to spin even the facts that support what Adams said away from any negatives and black Americans.

“I mean, why would a poll even ask that? Oh, because it’s Rasmussen, of course,” she concluded, labeling the organization as hateful too, “the agenda driven, conspiracy theory-boosting pollster who loves to stir the pot in the culture war. The phrase ‘it’s okay to be white,’ by the way, has been labeled a hate slogan by the Anti-Defamation League — a slogan popularized as a trolling campaign by members of 4Chan.”

Missing because of Reid’s utter lack of self-awareness was the fact that race-hustling like her’s was the reason the poll was conducted as Rasmussen began, “Despite years of progressive activism, a majority of Americans still don’t buy into the ‘woke’ narrative that white people have a monopoly on racism.”
