“Breaking Points” news report highlights the most recent race card statements from the ladies of The View and other online trolls who claim that comedian Sarah Silverman is a racist for criticizing MSNBC’s Joy Reid’s reporting.
Silverman tweeted out a criticism of Reid for not providing the whole context to a story about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Reid tried to scare viewers about Governor DeSantis bringing back a state guard. Reid said it was fascist and implied the Governor would use violence against those on the left (DeSantis is a Republican). Silverman criticized her reporting of the story for not telling viewers that this is not new, it’s something that 22 other states already have and is not a big deal. Silverman rightly pointed out that Reid is a Harvard educated journalist who does not need to lie or mislead viewers, especially considering her large platform.
In the video the click reveals Silverman’s response. “I cannot believe I need to say this, but I did not criticize Joy Anne because she’s black but because she’s a Harvard-educated journalist with the responsibility of showing the whole picture and not just a piece of the picture.”
The statement pretty much covers it, but it didn’t stop one of the zealots from The View for implying Silverman a racist for saying that about Joy Reid.
Reid has a loooooong history of fake news. Just this week she even criticized Elon Musk of “cultural appropriation” for calling Senator Elizabeth Warren “Senator Karen” for complaining about his tax payments. So now a white guy can’t even refer to someone as “Karen” without it being racist? Good grief.
Reid has used the racism excuse far too many times and even liberals (like Silverman) have had enough. The video shows how far Reid is living outside of reality when it comes to criticism of her views. Like Silverman, many concerns with Reid’s opinions have nothing to do with race and everything to do with reality.
You have to watch it to see how far Reid and mainstream media will push away any criticism they don’t like by blaming it on something other than dealing with real issues.
