MSNBC’s Joy Reid is usually over the top in her comments, but on her most recent ‘Am Joy,’ she used the n-word…Nazi. This is a tactic of people like Reid. They can’t debate, so they call names. In 2017, Reid was in hot water because of a tweet using the word “Nazi” to refer to a Trump administration official (see below).
The ironic thing is that it was the Nazis who used a propaganda campaign very similar to Reid’s to strike fear in people and to make people hate the other side.
In the segment on President Trump, Reid claimed that he brings out profound “anxiety” in people and that Nazis are “surfacing” in the US because of him:
“What we’re kind of all getting to is Donald Trump…we were talking about this in the hair and makeup room as well…he produces a kind of anxiety in people that is so profound. It’s part of the reason people are obsessively watching this show and Rachel Maddow. It’s like Rachel Maddow is sort of their psychologist at this point. People are afraid of not just what he can do but what he’s bringing out in people. The kind of people he is surfacing in the United States. You have swatting happening and Nazis walking around. It is a scary time.”

Reid continued to suggest that people are anxious:
“You look at the polling on what Donald Trump has done, and rather than make people feel more confident; it’s made people more anxious. Here is the anxiety level in 2018 versus 2019. People are more anxious. Do people feel safer after the strike on Iran? They feel less safe. Everything he does makes people feel worse. So do you think that redounds in particular to any particular candidate?”
It’s typical of the left to trash anyone they disagree with, and Joy Reid has a track record. In August of 2017, Reid tweeted out a Nazi joke directed towards a former Trump administration official:
Note that the tweet is still up on Twitter and hasn’t been removed.
