MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who analyses literally everything through her race tinted glasses, claimed Wednesday that conservatives fearing more gun control in the wake of mass shootings are akin to racists joining the KKK in the early 20th century because they feared a “black menace”.
Yes really. In the wake of another shooting in Tulsa, Reid referred to the infamous movie Birth of a Nation, which “created a rebirth of the Klan and, of course, lynchings followed because you had this sort of depiction in the media of apocalyptic fear of this black menace.”
Reid then turned to her guest Charles Blow of the New York Times and asked him what he thought about “the fact that it’s happening again?” Huh?
Blow responded by claiming “the NRA has figured out that this works, and there’s a blood pact between the Republican Party, the NRA,” further claiming that the NRA “create[s] menaces out of everything.”
