Tuesday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, racist propagandist Joy Reid said billionaire Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter is about bringing back a system like apartheid in 1980’s South Africa, where Musk was born and raised.
Reid said, “It was distressing to a lot of people, not least of which the people who work at Twitter. Who, you know, in their internal Slacks are really — a lot of them are wringing their hands, probably not all of them, but a lot of them, and just worried about what becomes of their company. Elon Musk’s companies have a history of open racism. You know, there’s been this lawsuit against Tesla, and he himself is a troll. So his idea of freedom means freedom to be a jerk and to be cruel and to have no one be able to stop you.”
Where is her evidence that Musk’s companies have a history of open racism? There is none, but Reid’s entire job description consists of smearing the Left’s opponents as racists.
She continued, “They want to come in and be able to punch people in the face and walk around and laugh about it and to not have anyone be able to stop them.”
What? What is she rambling about? This is simply fact-free demonization.
“There was a time when people had the double hashtags around their names because they were Jewish, and right-wingers were saying get in the oven any time you made any benign comment on Twitter,” she added bizarrely. “They attacked women. The misogyny was crazy on Twitter for a while. Elon Musk, I guess he misses the old South Africa in the ’80s. He wants that back.”
None of that makes any sense or is backed up with evidence. And her smear that Musk is nostalgic about apartheid is disgusting. This is not political commentary — it’s hate speech from a leftist bully.
