|The Insufferable Negress of MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid|
It's always rich when someone on the left gets exposed as a major league hypocrite. And in this case, it couldn't have happened to a better person: the self-righteous Nutty Negress of MSNBC, Joy Ann Reid. The lovely Ms. Reid is infamous for slamming anyone who dares to criticize her political views by calling them bigots and racist. The lefty media website 'Mediate' claims to have obtained another series of homophobic rants posted on MSNBC's most controversial affirmative-action pundit's old blog. Only this time she pulls out the victim card and denies they were actually written by her. It was those damn Russians again I suppose.....
"In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog."
While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic content on a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.” These anti-gay articles from The Reid Report — a site that pre-dated Reid’s former MSNBC show of the same name — were originally shared on Twitter by user Jamie_Maz who found them using the Wayback Machine, an Internet archiving service that takes periodic screenshots of popular web pages to preserve them.
While the amateur sleuth provided Mediaite with legitimate links to all of the posts they tweeted screenshots of, neither the actual defunct site nor its archived pages are currently accessible, as their Wayback Machine links mysteriously disappeared in December after Mediaite‘s initial story on Reid’s homophobic comments about Florida Congressman Charlie Crist."It is worth noting that Reid does admit these posts came from her blog rather than claiming they are doctored images posted to Twitter with the caveat that they were added by some nefarious hackers after she had the site shut down. It’s unclear when these nefarious hackers would have hacked her blog and added the controversial post since it has been defunct for years and still is.
"A 2006 Reid Report post included a compilation of the top five “totally not gay celebrities of the year,” which was a satirical attempt — albeit, a lazy one — at suggesting everyone on the list was secretly gay. Singer Clay Aiken and CNN pundit Anderson Cooper both made the list, which — if the publishing date is correct — was posted years before they had come-out publicly. In another post dated to 2005, the author said Cooper is the “gayest thing on TV” and noted that they have it “on good authority that Cooper is totally gay.” He didn’t come out publicly until 2012.
The post also repeatedly advocated against gay marriage on the site by criticizing liberals deemed too far left on the issue. Cable news host Rachel Maddow, who is openly gay and now works with Reid at MSNBC, was a recurring target in these Reid Report posts."I guess it's easy to adopt political correct views when the money is right. Eh Joy? But it's going to be hard for her to push these allegations aside with ease considering other controversial comments Reid has publicly made on gay issues, include the her 2017 twitter storm against the supposedly “volatile & vulnerable” whistle-blower Chelsea Manning, a tirade that was deemed transphobic. Pass the popcorn please.......
