What Joy Said.

Certain people sure like or enjoy being outraged...

The latest piece of "outrage" comes from statements MSNBC personality Joy Reid made last week following the shooting of a Republican senator...

MSNBC’s “AM Joy” host Joy Reid is receiving criticism for attacking the politics of House majority whip Steve Scalise, who is still in the hospital after a gunman opened fired last week on the GOP Congressional baseball team.

“It’s a delicate thing because, obviously everybody is wishing the congressman well and hoping that he recovers. But Steve Scalise has a history that we’ve all been forced to sort of ignore on race,” Reid said over the weekend.

Reid continued: “He did come to leadership after some controversy over attending a White nationalists event, which he says he didn’t know what it was. Because he is in jeopardy and everyone is pulling for him, are we required in a moral sense to put that aside?” she asked.

Her comments were called appalling by some..She was accused of kicking a man when he's down by others...

Point is...She didn't tell not one lie...Everything she said about him is the truth...

Some of these same people who are so outraged...aren't outraged when a Black person is shot and killed by trigger happy police and then in death they are put on trial and villified for everything they have done in the past as a reason to justify their death now...

Save your fake outrage....

No..It is never a good thing when anyone is shot for no reason, but the things this man,Steve Scalise  has said and did HAD a bearing on his being shot. The crazed gunman was looking for people like him last week...

Steve Scalise was not an innocent bystander, nor a first grader in a classroom. He fought common sense protections in the legislature, he attended racist meetings and said and did racist things. You cannot take actions that whip outrage in people and not expect an equal and opposite reaction. As has been noted....karma is a raging bitch!

While Joy Reid was making these comments, an on-screen graphic showed Steve Scalise’s record highlighting his more polarizing decisions, such as sponsoring a bill to define marriage as between a man and a women.

 Joy Reid also sent out a tweet that said, “Scalise was shot by a white man with a violent background, and saved by a black lesbian police officer, and yet …”

Yes and yet...He was saved by two Black people ..A Black male officer and a Black Lesbian Officer..

Remember that the next time you vote to scuttle a civil rights bill or make light of the Black lives matter movemant Mr. Scalise..

Fox News media guru Howie Kurtz was still upset about Reid’s comments, calling her “appalling.”
“While Steve Scalise remains in a hospital bed fighting for his life, she’s attacking him because she doesn’t like his politics,” Kurtz said. “For Joy Reid to tweet that Scalise was attacked by a white man… why bring race into it?”

The Hill media columnist Joe Concha made a prediction about the situation, “Here’s how the Joy Reid thing unfolds: She goes viral for profoundly reckless/myopic Scalise tweet. Blowback ensues. Forced apology follows.”

 I hope not...Why apologize for giving your opinion? Your honest opinion or is it only okay when the Right Wingers on Fox News do it??

Miss me with your fake outrage!
