MSNBC’s Reid Makes Statement So Racist It’ll Leave Your Jaw On The Floor

MSNBC has made it more than clear that it's not a legitimate news network, but rather an extension of the Democratic Party.
That was made even clearer this week when network host Joy Reid made a statement so racist it'll leave your jaw on the floor.
During a segment on her program "AM Joy," Reid promoted the conspiracy theory that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wanted to bankrupt America so that, when minorities overtake the majority, they would have no wealth to obtain.
Reid also bizarrely likened the coverage of President Donald Trump to the media's treatment of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.
Reid and her panel spent several minutes trying to convince viewers that McConnell is helping Trump allegedly empower white nationalism.
The off-the-rails segment kicked into overdrive when Reid claimed McConnell was intentionally trying to destroy the United States for minorities before they gain power in the future.
"You know, somebody said to me this week, I thought was so smart, that it's almost as if Mitch McConnell's plan is that they know the demographics are what they are, and that the only way they're willing to hand power to the non-white majority in this country ever is if the country is completely a shell and broke, and they'll hand them the broken pieces and keep all the wealth for themselves," Reid said.
A few minutes later, Reid attempted to compare the "benign" media coverage of Hitler to modern-day coverage of Trump.
"I have this old set of New York Times front covers … to show how benign the coverage was even in the 1930s, as the world was about to burn down in World War II," Reid said. "And the just sort of benign things, you know, it's like a tick of wanting to see world leaders—in that case of Germany—they just want to see them as normal and I don't know where that comes from, but it is really—and I think it wouldn't be so if those leaders were not white men, I have to say."
"White Republican men," a panelist said.
"White Republican—white conservative [men]. There's a sense that conservatism is normal, and that white conservative men are the norm, and that anything but that—I mean, you almost have Elizabeth Warren almost being depicted as some sort of crazy communist when she's a totally normal politician who just wants people to have health care," Reid continued.
Any real news network would have taken action against Reid long ago.
But MSNBC refuses to take any action against Reid or other hosts who continue to make outrageous comments on the network.
Just imagine if any host on Fox News had made comments like that. They would likely be suspended or fired from the network.
