Racist Reid: GOP Has ‘Lynching Vibe’, ‘Lust’ to Hurt or ‘Kill’ Political Opponents

Racist Reid: GOP Has ‘Lynching Vibe’, ‘Lust’ to Hurt or ‘Kill’ Political Opponents

April 11, 2023

In the latest episode of MSNBC’s The ReidOut, racist rabble-rouser Joy Reid claimed that Governor Greg Abbott’s push to pardon an Army sergeant convicted of murder of a Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestor threatening him with a gun is evidence that the GOP is bringing back a “lynching vibe” to America.

Speaking with senior political strategist Matthew Dowd, who hyperbolically called the pending pardon an “attack on our democracy,” Reid noted that Abbott’s behavior indicates some Republicans are pushing to bring back the “19th century” “lynching vibe.”

She said, “You have Republicans in multiple states, including Florida, passing and pushing laws that will allow people to hit Black Lives Matter protesters or any protesters they like with their cars. This was after the Charlottesville murder by car of a white woman who was a Black Lives Matter protester.”

She added, “They have seemed to have gotten back into lynching, hanging, all sorts of other Draconian 19th century fare. What is going on with Republicans that they seem to be bringing back the lynching vibe?”

Fact check: no one is being lynched here except the former Army sergeant convicted of murder for defending himself.

Reid went on to rant about fascism, because why not? “Fascism has many features. And one of them is this sort of lust to be able to harm or kill your political opponents. And it feels like across the board on the right, there is this kind of sort of lust for that, right? For we need to be able to not let our political opponents vote, but also to hurt them or worse.”

As always with Joy Reid, this kind of accusation of Republican political violence is pure Democrat projection.
