MSNBC’s Joy Reid: FL Gov. DeSantis Is the ‘Modern-Day George Wallace’

Thursday on her show The ReidOut, MSNBC propagandist host Joy Reid said that Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis was the “modern-day” version of segregationist Gov. George Wallace (who happened to be Democrat) for signing the state’s new anti-rioting law.

“Republican state legislatures across the country are responding to the demonstrations over George Floyd’s murder with punitive new measures intended to discourage protests altogether,” Reid claimed falsely. In fact, the legislation is intended to discourage rioting and looting.

Reid went on to complain that DeSantis signed into law legislation that makes it harder for Black Lives Matter protesters to run violently amok. “This is directed at Black Lives Matter. It feels so George Wallace that I’m shocked that George Wallace didn’t actually think of it back when he was governor of Alabama.”

Reid added, “Ron DeSantis appears to really want to reenact the entire George Wallace history. I guess he wants to be the modern-day George Wallace because he is enacting a slew of laws that essentially try to make it illegal to protest in the state of Florida, illegal to touch their precious Confederate statues from the losing side of the Civil War, right? But then also — but you also can’t vote. This is Jim Crow in your state.”

Can’t vote? Jim Crow? Protecting their “precious Confederate statues”? This is nothing but race-baiting demagoguery with no connection to reality. But that’s what MSNBC and Reid traffic in.

Condemning What She Views As Widespread White Racism, Supremacy, & Privilege

In a May 2018 opinion piece, Reid articulated her belief that white people’s sense of racial supremacy and privilege continues to be a ubiquitous and deadly threat to black Americans:

“To be white in America is to assume, with total self-confidence and little afterthought, the personal ownership of public spaces. To be white in America is to have the confidence to say, without a second thought: this space, this neighborhood, this city, this county, this country is mine. Myself and those who look like me have the right to decide who can be here, and even what language can be spoken here….

“From the moment black and brown people were imported into this country, not as citizens but as worker bodies, transgressing these ‘white-owned spaces’ — from rail cars to restaurants to whole parts of town — could mean humiliation or persecution or even death. It still can today. What has changed is the scale. We don’t see death for the transgression of white spaces on the level we did in decades past. But it still happens…. Meanwhile, the definition of white-owned spaces keeps expanding: from the Starbucks seating area to the Yale common room to the barbecue area of a public park….

“Whiteness carries with it the luxury of invisibility. The white presence is deemed benign and eternally welcome. It’s why a white man can walk into a hotel with multiple valises full of guns and attract no notice whatsoever, until he turns his hotel room into a lethal sniper’s nest. In contrast, a black man carrying a cellphone in his grandmother’s backyard is deemed so threatening he is gunned down by panicked police.”

    Jim Crow? I don’t see the dems condemning the Libyan slave trade that is going on today with blacks selling blacks and anyone else in human cages. I don’t see the dems condemning the child human trafficking that is on-going and was on-going from groups like Mossad or Prince Alwad. Nothing to see here folks.

      Agree 100% with your point Bob. Dems are only concerned about issues that might reduce their power and wealth and the same can be said of RINOs. They’re evil and not guided by doing what is right.

      Human traffickers are lower than whale crap and should be tried, convicted and executed without a long appeals process – the only thing they respect is force.

    Joy Reid is an affirmative action Harvard graduate with a double digit IQ. She is a gatekeeper on the democrat plantation.

    Our Gov DeSantis is one of the better Governors of our time. The Dems are attacking him on all sides. Watch on upcoming tickets.
