Tuesday nights on MSNBC The ReidOut, presenter Joy Reid and phony Republican Matthew Dowd engaged in corrosive, offensive, and repulsive rhetoric when they insisted that the January 6 attack on the United States Capitol was worse than the radical Islamic terror attacks of September 11, 2001 and that insufficient numbers of Democrats share the same concern.
And in the preview segment, Reid showed his anti-Christian bigotry by mocking Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) for “Cheep[ing] Bible verses every day for random reasons “ since, according to Reid, he supports white supremacists.
Reid wasted no time on the Dowd block, telling him out of the blue that “it looks like things have gotten worse since January 6, honestly,” which Dowd said he “Totally agree[s] with. “
Dowd then explained that things were worse “Because there has been no responsibility, permission has been given to do more … crazy things.” with the Republican Party destroying the country even more.
His arrogance grew exponentially when Dowd boasted that, visiting Lincoln’s birthplace, he realized that the 16th President’s prediction that the United States would destroy itself from the inside was coming to fruition thanks to the Americans. center-right.
It was here that Dowd drew up his 9/11 comparison, first by rhetorically asking what the response would have been if the Bush administration “had done nothing” after Al Qaeda attacked the United States before saying the killing of 3,000 people it was water under the bridge in comparison. to the Capitol riot:
[T]For me, even though there was less loss of life on January 6, January 6 was worse than September 11 because it continued to tear our country apart and give permission for people to pursue autocratic means and therefore I believe that we are in a much worse situation. where we have been and, as I have told you, I believe that we are in the most dangerous moment since 1861 at the advent of the Civil War.
Of course, Reid agreed and illustrated the level of scary porn dominating CNN and MSNBC while complaining that the center-left peers aren’t crippled enough by fear across the aisle (click “expand”) :
I also. I also. And it scares me. You know, the thing that scares me the most, Matthew, is that I’m not sure that the majority of the Democrats, at least the majority of the Democrats elected in Washington, agree with us or are as scared as we are, you know, I said. yesterday, talking to Malcolm. Nance and Susan del Percio, who is a Republican strategist, if you analyze how this looks to me, it looks directly like fascism. It looks like Mussolini’s Italy, the brown shirts, the – the violence against our Capitol, the attempts to overthrow the government, the targeting of white citizens who turn out to be the main citizens or else the country dies and you see a Republican party. out of cowardice or because they agree with that, let’s say we’re going to go with that, we’re going to do with that. If that’s what we need to have power, then fine, we’ll take fascism. I don’t know what you do with it when one of the parties decides that and you really only have two.
Dowd’s response reminded viewers how authoritarian and fascist many leftists and so-called “Of principles” Politicians are like he argued that right-wing Americans should be beaten in the dark: “[T]The only thing you can do is rid the country of that political party and get rid of it entirely and make it suffer devastating losses in a series of elections. “
Somewhere, Kurt Bardella must have been satisfied with this 9/11 comparison.
Step back a few minutes and we had more of the poisonous, punishment-free rhetoric we expected from Reid when he teamed up with one of Rubio’s potential Senate opponents in 2022 to poke fun at his public profession of his faith in Jesus Christ.
During a segment on the six-month anniversary of the attack on the Capitol, Reid told Congresswoman Val Demings (D-FL) that the incumbent senator was someone “Who tweets Bible verses every day for random reasons?” and refused to report “White Supremacists”.
Demings agreed, saying “Rubio can send all the Bible verses he wants”, because people should examine “Not what he says but what he does” and realize that never “He said a word to denounce white supremacists since he’s in office.”
A quick search of Rubio’s personal and government Twitter accounts and the Senate website will show that he is doomed. anti-LGBTQ violence (about the attack on the Pulse nightclub), anti-semitic violence, Charlottesville, the January 6th events, hate crimes against minorities, racial discrimination and slavery, Y white supremacy.
But since MSNBC cares more about gas lighting and vitriol than facts, it’s doubtful they’re interested in any of that.
The ReidOut said that January 6 was worse than September 11 and that anti-Christian intolerance was made possible thanks to the endorsement of advertisers such as Royal Crown, HughesNet, Y mutual freedom. Follow the posts for their contact information on the MRC’s Conservatives Fight Back page.

July 6, 2021

JOY REID: And I have a question for you, kind of a law enforcement issue, but … surprising … and, you know, in Florida, it’s a small world, as you and I know. But people like Marco Rubio, who he’s fighting in the United States Senate, who tweets Bible verses every day for random reasons, aren’t saying to themselves, “I don’t want to be associated with white supremacists. ” Where are they [sic] a speaker? Where is Marco Rubio? Where are all these people who constantly lecture us about the history we are allowed to learn? Why don’t they say anything?
WOMAN OF CONGRESS VAL DEMINGS (D-FL): Well, you know Joy, a long time ago someone told me that they would rather watch a sermon any day than listen to one. Then Rubio can send as many Bible verses as he wants. We look not at what he says, but at what he does. We’re talking about a man, as you pointed out, thank you for bringing that up, who hasn’t said a word to denounce white supremacists since he’s in office, by the way. We are talking about a man who voted against an independent commission that would investigate the 6/1 insurrection. And so, again, we know them by the fruits they bear. Rubio has not complied. And as you know, that is exactly why I am running. Florida deserves better.
7:08 pm ET
REID: Matthew, it seems things have gotten worse since January 6, honestly. You know, I remember reading the reports about when Trump began his career for office, he inspired a spike in white nationalism and violent white nationalism. The talk was that this boy is our boy. Gone now. But even without their daily social media presence, we now have members of Congress openly hanging out with the people who marched in Charlottesville, Nick Fuentes, who openly say we have to bring America back to a white, Christian country, that just say it openly and the congressmen, they are not even ashamed to be around them. What’s going on?
MATTHEW DOWD: Well, I absolutely agree with you, Joy, that I think it’s a lot worse than January 6. It is much worse than in November. It is much worse after January 6 and part of the problem is because, because there was no responsibility, you were given permission to do more of this. And not only has he given average people permission to do crazy things, but he has allowed Republicans to continue this big lie that they have pushed. I was in Kentucky yesterday. I decided to go to Lincoln’s birthplace and his childhood home. And I was reflecting on that because one of the things that Lincoln said was, America will never be destroyed from the outside, America will destroy itself. And I think that’s what I fear right now. And one of the things if you think about this, what if, after 9/11, we hadn’t done anything? We hadn’t done anything.
DOWD: Think about that. If we hadn’t done anything after September 11, and for me, even though there was less loss of life on January 6, January 6 was worse than September 11 because it continued to destroy our country and give permission for people to persecute. autocratic media. and therefore, I believe that we are in a much worse place than we have been and, as I told you before, I believe that we are in the most dangerous moment since 1861, with the advent of the Civil War.
REID: Me too. I also. And it scares me. You know, the thing that scares me the most, Matthew, is that I’m not sure that the majority of the Democrats, at least the majority of the Democrats elected in Washington, agree with us or are as scared as we are, you know, I said. yesterday, talking to Malcolm. Nance and Susan del Percio, who is a Republican strategist, if you analyze how this looks to me, it looks directly like fascism. It looks like Mussolini’s Italy, the brown shirts, the – the violence against our Capitol, the attempts to overthrow the government, the targeting of white citizens who turn out to be the main citizens or else the country dies and you see a Republican party. out of cowardice or because they agree with that, let’s say we’re going to go with that, we’re going to do with that. If that’s what we need to be in power, then fine, we’ll take fascism. I don’t know what you do with it when one of the parties decides that and you really only have two.
DOWD: Well, the only thing you can do is get rid of that political party’s country and get rid of it entirely and make it suffer devastating losses in a series of elections. To me, there is no moral argument we can make against Republicans who have decided that moral:
DOWD: – positioning doesn’t matter anymore. Well, I was thinking about this. You know, JD Vance, the charlatan running for the US Senate in Ohio who is fully created, has created fictions and says whatever, said something that I really agree with in his ad and said that the Republican establishment doesn’t care about its voters and thinks its voters are stupid and thinks its voters are intolerant. What he should have said is, “I don’t care,” like all other Republicans, what you have in this country right now, and you know it, if you’re in a relationship and someone is constantly lying to you.
DOWD: – someone who does all kinds of things that shows that they don’t care about them, they think you’re a yahoo, right?
REID: Yes, yes.
DOWD: And that’s what they – Republicans think their base is bigoted and their base is stupid and that’s why they keep doing what they’re doing.
REID: Yes, yes.
