Joy Reid Forced To Apologize After Smearing Conservative Writer
It’s Joy Reid so never expect the truth, honesty or integrity, she doesn’t even know the meaning of those words. How liberals can make these “jumps” from reality to fantasy is beyond my comprehension.
MSNBC host Joy Reid on Wednesday accused National Review‘s David French of being reckless on the matter of nuclear war because only “Democrats and minorities” would die if the United States were attacked.
Reid’s argument stems from an article in Newsweek arguing that French, an Army veteran who served in Iraq, wrote an article telling readers “not to worry about a potential nuclear strike because they live in America’s suburbs and countryside.”
French did not, in fact, say anyone should “not worry” about a nuclear attack, but rather gave practical advice on surviving a strike by North Korea. Reid nevertheless took Newsweek‘s piece at face value and tweeted it out, accusing National Review of being comfortable with Democrats and minorities being killed.
“The magazine in question is the once-august National Review,” she tweeted. “We have truly entered the age of insanity when the conservative argument in favor of risking nuclear war is, ‘don’t worry, it will only kill Democrats and minorities.’ Shame on you, @DavidAFrench.” Read more at Free Beacon.

In yet another ugly incident featuring an MSNBC host, Joy-Ann Reid smeared National Review’s David French on Monday in a statement suggesting that an article he wrote was motivated by racism. The premise for Reid’s serious charge, however, was fundamentally flawed, which the left-wing host was finally forced to admit. Read more at TDW.
In the annals of misleading and ridiculous tweets, this takes the cake:
1. I did not argue in favor of risking nuclear war.
2. I never said anything like the words in those quotes.
3. I wrote only in favor of prepping for bad events.
Other than that, the tweet’s great. https://t.co/oWpXdnjOpD

This is a disgusting lie. David wrote no such thing, nor did he imply such a thing. I’d say this is beneath Joy Reid, but it’s not. How ugly is our politics that one day David has doctored photos of his mixed race family thrown at him, and the next he’s on the end of this. (1) pic.twitter.com/FRDhNQp8RL

No, Joy. Shame on you for thinking Raw Story would present what @DavidAFrench wrote in its proper context which has to do with the radius of a nuclear blast, not Democrats and Republicans.
