What is it with liberals and Thanksgiving? They really hate the holiday for reasons that elude me. MSNBC’s Joy Reid disparaged Thanksgiving as a “food holiday” with a “problematic” history and also mocked Trump supporters whom her viewers may encounter at the dinner table in the coming weeks. She had detailed instructions for them as well.
“We are just over two weeks away from one of the most beloved American food holidays. Thanksgiving, where problematic actual history meets delicious cuisine,” Reid started the segment on Saturday morning, “and many will be heading home to spend time with family and friends, eat a little too much and perhaps engage in a dreaded, contentious political debate with your cranky Uncle Roscoe when he starts yelling, ‘read the transcript!’ at the dinner table between bites of turkey and pumpkin pie.”
Way to trivialize the witch hunt, Joy. But I would expect nothing less from the likes of MSNBC.
From Fox News:
“The “AM Joy” host explained to her audience that she would tell them “everything you need to understand about impeachment” so her viewers could “easily explain” the ongoing political firestorm to “Uncle Roscoe and Auntie Carol.”
“Here’s a hint: Do not worry about trying to explain the cast of characters… or the very overused term, ‘quid pro quo.’ Most people can’t say it, spell it or understand it,” Reid continued. “What we’re actually talking about here is not a pithy Latin phrase. It’s something a lot simpler: bribery and extortion.”
“Beyond the whistleblower and over 100 hours of testimony backing up that fact, Donald Trump admitted to it, and even released edited notes from his call with the Ukrainian president — which by the way is not a transcript — that actually prove he did it! Even Uncle Roscoe and Auntie Carol ought to understand that.”
“The White House this past September released a summary of the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Many Democrats have said Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate the political dealings of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Trump and the White House have said they did nothing wrong.
“Reid, an outspoken critic of President Trump, faced controversy surrounding homophobic blog posts on her now-defunct website that Mediaite first uncovered in December 2017.
“After Mediaite uncovered another trove of inflammatory remarks, Reid alleged that somebody retroactively hacked her website, which allegedly prompted an investigation by the FBI.”
And so begins the annual Thanksgiving bashing by the left. This woman’s idea of a good Thanksgiving is eating and drooling over impeachment. That’s just sick. And making fun of those that support Trump is her idea of a dessert.
This is a yearly thing for the left — the only difference is that each year they get more radical and more shrill about it.
From The Daily Wire:
“Reid’s instruction for leftists to use the Thanksgiving holiday as a venue to school their conservative family members has been a sensation among Trump haters ever since he won the White House in 2016. Last year, The New York Times profiled ways for liberals to argue with their conservative family members at the dinner table, which was quickly outdone by Eater asserting that people are morally obligated to debate racist Trump supporters before asking them to pass the gravy.
“Moderates everywhere still insist that being nice to your racist, Trump-supporting relatives at the Thanksgiving table is somehow going to be the balm that prevents us from ending up in Margaret Atwood’s Gilead,” Eater’s Amy McCarthy argued. “That assessment is, frankly, a steaming pile of bulls***.”
“There is no amount of civility that can balance the harm of xenophobic nationalism, and no amount of sitting silently while listening to someone spew racial epithets that will repair what Trump and his ilk have broken,” continued McCarthy. “Being progressive doesn’t just mean clicking ‘like’ on left-leaning Facebook statuses. It requires a commitment to pursuing justice, even when it’s your weird uncle, even when it’s uncomfortable, and especially when there are other people in the room who you care about.”’
Boy, these people must be a blast around the dinner table. No thanks.
Joy Reid is trying to get a jump on the public impeachment kangaroo court nonsense. She’s also laying the groundwork to propagandize the proceedings. Remember, these people think we are all dumb hicks who can’t say or even spell ‘quid pro quo,’ much less understand the nuanced meaning of their allegations against President Trump.
In the end, the message is clear… Thanksgiving is for the liberal elite, not mainstream America and we should not listen to the facts, truth, or logic concerning President Trump. We should listen to our leftist overlords. I don’t think so. Pass the turkey and politics… I’m ready to dig in.
