Joy Reid’s Racist Reasoning for Whitmer Verdict

'That's a very scary thing for this country... '

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) Professional race-baiter and MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid took to Twitter to offer her unique perspective and on the “not guilty” verdicts in the Whitmer kidnapping case.

In a verdict issued on April 8, Daniel Harris, 24, and Brandon Caserta, 33, were found not guilty of conspiring to kidnap Michigan Democrat Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.

To absolutely no one’s surprise, Reid suggested that a jury’s rejection of the FBI‘s transparent attempt to entrap American citizens is yet another example of systemic racism.

“Unreal…so in America in the year of our Lord 2022, you can plot to kidnap a Democratic woman governor to stage a show trial and hurt her or worse, because you don’t like COVID restrictions and walk, as long as you’re a white, right wing extremist,” the pride of Harvard’s Film Studies department wrote. “Holy jury nullification, Batman.”

A notorious BLM-riot apologist and supporter of the Defund the Police movement, Reid’s comments suggest that — like the rest of the Left whenever they are in power — she has come around to law enforcement’s point of view.

MSNBC host Katie S. Phang agreed with Reid’s expert analysis.

“Sadly, jury nullification will always be a huge factor in the decision to prosecute any higher-level GOPers,” Phang wrote. “You may have the probable cause that a crime was committed, but the (often times realistic) fear of jury nullification may keep prosecutors from moving forward.”

“That’s a very scary thing for this country,” Reid responded.

While Phang’s suggestion that the alleged Whitmer kidnappers are “higher-level GOPers” is obviously absurd, the reiteration of Reid’s claim regarding “jury nullification” was clearly intended to poison the well.

“Jury nullification,” according to the Legal Information Institute, occurs when a jury refuses to apply the law for ideological or other reasons, and both Reid and Phang have suggested that the jury in this case acquitted fellow “white, right-wing extremists” for racial reasons.

This isn’t the first time Reid has attributed racist motives to ordinary political differences — she’s made a career out of it.

In two recent examples, Reid claimed that the Republican understanding of freedom “generally means white Christian men are free to live and act like American czars” and that Americans only care about the plight of Ukrainians because they’re “white and largely Christian.”
