The chip that rested safely on MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid’s shoulder is forcibly being brushed off after her leftist credentials are now being thrown into the dumpster along with said chip.


It would appear that Reid isn’t really a fan of the gay community, and a past blog post from her proves it. This has caused PFLAG National, an LGBT group, to rescind the Straight for Equality in Media Award that was to be given to Joy Ann Reid.

From The Hill:

Liz Owen, director of communications for PFLAG National, said the group had invited Reid to honor her at their 45th anniversary celebration knowing about some posts that she had already apologized for.

But it said revelations of new posts had caused it to rescind the invitation.

“We appreciated how she stepped up, took ownership, apologized for them, and did better—this is the behavior and approach we ask of any ally,” Owens said of the older posts. “However, in light of new information, and the ongoing investigation of that information, we must at this time rescind our award to Ms. Reid.”

To make matters worse, Reid has not taken responsibility for the post, blaming it instead on hackers who are trying to make her look bad. The Internet Archive has looked into the matter and found that there was no evidence of tampering in Reid’s post.


“When we reviewed the archives, we found nothing to indicate tampering or hacking of the Wayback Machine versions,” the Internet Archive wrote in a blog post. “At least some of the examples of allegedly fraudulent posts provided to us had been archived at different dates and by different entities.”

“We let Reid’s lawyers know that the information provided was not sufficient for us to verify claims of manipulation,” it added.

It’s always a good show when it turns out that the holier-than-thou leftists who falsely point at others for wrong-think are discovered to be offenders themselves. Reid may be one of the worst of those, and it’s good to see her brought down a peg or two.
