Tuesday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, racist propagandist Joy Reid slammed Republican Sen. Marco Rubio for tweeting Bible verses daily but not speaking out against fellow GOP Rep. Paul Gosar, whom Reid smeared as a “white supremacist.”
Reid asked Rubio’s Democrat rival Val Demings why “people like Marco Rubio… who tweets Bible verses every day for random reasons, these people aren’t saying to themselves, ‘I don’t want to be associated with white supremacists.’”
Demings replied, “Well, you know, Joy, a long time ago, someone told me I’d rather see a sermon any day than to hear one. So Rubio can send out all of the Bible verses that he wants to. We’re looking at not what he says but what he does. We’re talking about a man, as you’ve indicated, thank you for bringing it up — who has not said one word to denounce white supremacists since he’s been in office, by the way.”
Apart from the cheap shots at Rubio’s expression of Christian faith, which the left despises, this is a lie. Rubio has publicly denounced white supremacy as an “old evil,” just as Donald Trump denounced white supremacy on literally dozens of public occasions. But the left relentlessly pounds the message that Republicans refuse to denounce it, despite all the evidence to the contrary.
It’s how the left dominates political narratives — by repeating lies often enough that people begin to believe them.
