Thursday on MSNBC’s propaganda outlet The ReidOut, guest legal analyst Brittany Packnett Cunningham told racist host Joy Reid that the slogan Make America Great Again, associated with former President Trump and his supporters, reflects a desire to return to “days when you could lynch or murder black folks.”
Discussing a proposed Missouri self-defense law, demagogue Reid claimed that “Mark McCloskey, who is running for the open Missouri Senate seat, praised the bill. Because it means that he essentially, and his wife, could have been in their slippers and shoot every single Black Lives Matter person that walked by, legally, and they would not even be detained.”
What an utterly absurd lie. No one in conservative media would ever get away with making such an outrageously stupid claim, but no one in the mainstream (i.e. leftist) media will even bat an eye over it.
Packnett Cunningham replied, “This was, of course, the couple that was made famous by stepping outside of their restricted Covenant mansion in St. Louis, Glocks in tow, pulling their guns out on unarmed black protestors. But of course, to people like the McCloskeys, black skin is weapon enough, and this is precisely the problem. This is exactly what this bill is designed to do. It is to legitimize seeing blackness as a weapon in and of itself and then justify our murders.”
The McCloskeys did not display their weapons because of racism, but because their neighborhood was being threatened by rioters and looters. Moreover, the proposed Missouri self-defense law has nothing to do with race. It would apply to every legal citizen, blacks included — and blacks statistically benefit more from self-defense laws and 2nd Amendment rights than whites do.
She added, “So when folks talk about making America great again, that’s the kind of Missouri grand ol’ tradition that they want to return to. They want to return to days when you could lynch or murder black folks, and there would be absolutely no retribution for it. That’s not hyperbole. I’m telling you as a black Missourian, and as a protestor, that is reality.”
That’s not hyperbole? Of course it is. It’s beyond hyperbole. It’s a hate-mongering lie that bears no relation whatsoever to reality. But that’s how MSNBC and Joy Reid roll.

Reid Says That “Selfish” White Christian Conservatives Believe That America Was “Built for Them”
During the January 3, 2022 airing of her MSNBC program The ReidOut, Reid said:
“They’re white so-called Christian conservatives who feel like this country was built by them for them, and so everyone but them needs to suck it up and let them have their way or else. Their party, the Republicans, have gone from pretending to be the party of personal responsibility to unmasking themselves as the party of selfish people that cannot play well with others. And they even have their own cable networks plus something called GETTR [a social media platform and microblogging site founded in July 2021 by former Donald Trump aide Jason Miller], which kind of sounds like porn. Moving on. So the special citizen says, ‘I don’t want to wear a mask [against coronavirus], and if you try to attack me, I’ll attack the low-waged clerks at the store or at the Burger King. I don’t want to get the [COVID-19] vaccine either. If people get sick from me, oh well, not my problem. Joe Rogan said it’s fine. My kids aren’t going to mask up to protect those other kids. F those other kids, their parents are probably commies anyway.’ Which usually means people who want rights for other people and who give a damn what happens to them. So this midterm election year, we’re going to find out which brand of citizenship is stronger, and the answer will tell us whether our democracy is strong enough to survive.”
