Race Hustler Joy Reid Says Criticizing Alvin Bragg Suggests 'Black Folks Are Controlled' by 'Some Jewish Overseer'

MSNBC’s race hustler extraordinaire Joy Reid can connect virtually anything to “racism” with no more than two dots. This time, Reid impressively (ahem) asserted that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ criticism of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over the indictment of former President Donald Trump was a “dog whistle,” used by DeSantis to suggest that black people like Bragg are controlled by Jewish millionaires.


Yes, really.

Let’s first go to DeSantis and his “smoking gun” tweet that proves the Florida governor is obviously “racist,” and thinks wealthy Jewish people control black Americans in prominent positions. [heavy sarc]

The weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda turns the rule of law on its head.

It is un-American.

The Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney has consistently bent the law to downgrade felonies and to excuse criminal misconduct. Yet, now he is stretching the law to target a political opponent.

Florida will not assist in an extradition request given the questionable circumstances at issue with this Soros-backed Manhattan prosecutor and his political agenda.

Oh, damn. You just outed yourself, governor. Translation: DeSantis was categorically correct on all counts.

Au contraire, according to Reid. As I said at the top, the noted race-baiter went for a twofer, attacking DeSantis for his “racist” comment while also taking a shot at the “evil Jooos” at the same time.


As transcribed by NewsBusters (emphasis, mine):

[M]y editorial comment … is a statement without dignity. The governor of Florida does not know the facts so he cannot talk about questionable facts in this case he doesn’t know them. Only the Grand Jury knows them and this is a sealed indictment.

So he’s making a statement about something he doesn’t know the answer to and throwing out … dog whistles, you know historically, this meme, this idea among the right that African Americans, that black folks who are in positions are controlled by some Jewish overseer who is pulling their strings, that’s what that statement reads like.

And perhaps this governor should maybe read a history book because he might not understand what he is channeling but he’s channeling an era in American history that is one of the most ugly, that he’s probably not allowing to be taught in school. But that idea that this prosecutor, and by the way, it’s not just this prosecutor …

Setting aside the glaring hypocrisy, Joy Reid — of all people —criticizing anyone for “making a statement about something he (or she) doesn’t know the answer to” is beyond rich. Reid regularly makes the most absurd comments about subjects she apparently knows zero about, without batting a race-baiting eye.


She continued:

It was a Grand Jury that looked at facts, that looked at evidence, and this Grand Jury took a vote, which is part of our system.

And so for the governor of one of our largest states and most important states to throw out a miasma of words that are meant to trigger the far right for his political ambitions, that really do sound like that old meme that this black prosecutor must be under the secret control of this, you know, murky Jewish millionaire, that could be 1950, and it is not dignified.

“It is beneath the dignity of a governor,” Reid concluded — as if the word meant a damn thing, in her case.
