(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) With uncertainty a common theme in today’s world under the tenuous care of an aged and angry man with bouts of delusion, it’s nice that some bedrocks remain guaranteed to deliver, like leftist lunacy and vitriol spewing from MSNBC’s Joy Reid.
The perpetually aggrieved talker couldn’t let Thanksgiving pass without cooking up some of her race-peddling platitudes to rain on multiple parades with a steady stream of invective disparaging America and turning the holiday as sour as spoiled gizzard gravy.
Somehow managing to stretch a link between two recent mass shootings, both of which involved reportedly deeply disturbed individuals, one self-identifying as “non-binary,” to the founding of America, Reid accused Republicans of hiding the country’s violent history under a heaping of white mashed potato myths.
“We are a country founded on violence. Our birth was violent,” the Reid declared, cribbing a page from fellow race-hustler Nikole Hannah-Jones’s fabulist 1619 Project.
“In 1619, a ship with more than 20 enslaved Africans landed in Virginia, ushering in two centuries of American slavery that left millions in chains or dead, Reid basted in the Thanksgiving spirit of community, family and fellowship.
“When those humans in bondage were finally free, a terrorist organization that was a card carrying member of polite society, Ku Klux Klan, picked up where the Civil War ended, using violence to maintain white supremacy,” she informed of the Democrat party’s racist progeny.
It wasn’t all dark past as prophecy, though, with Reid launching her tirade by dishing out a serving of sweetness that quickly devolved into bitter recriminations and condemnations.
“We begin with Thanksgiving. The day we gather with friends and family to enjoy turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie,” she warbled. “We throw on the game, catch up on our lives and discuss or quite possibly argue about religion and politics.
“For millions of Americans, it’s a day of cherished tradition. And as Americans, we certainly value those traditions,” she said while managing to keep a straight face.
“But it’s also important to unpack the myth of Thanksgiving,” said Reid, who called it “a holiday riddled with historical inaccuracies” built on “this myth that the indigenous welcomed their colonizers with open arms and ears of corn. “A simplistic fairytale interpretation of a 1621 encounter between indigenous tribes and English settlers that erases the genocide that followed,” Reid scolded. “It’s the truth that Republicans want banned from our textbooks because here is the secret they want so desperately to keep.”
The result of those actions has kept the Klan active, Reid claimed, “and as Americans we continue to choose violence.
“We are a country that chooses violence over and over again,” she proclaimed. “There is no facet of the mark in society untouched by it.”
Reid was righteously roasted on Twitter for her remarks that denigrated American history and Americans.
Joy Reid you are a very racist,sad, hate America and bitter media personality. Thanksgiving is a blessing thanking what God has given to all of us ,race, color or creed. Happy Thanksgiving .

Mark Levine called her a “screwed up head case who’s hate for our fabulous country knows no limits,” and he wasn’t alone in that assessment.
“I’ve never heard such a negative person,” offered one poster. “Only Joy Reid could find evil in Thanksgiving.”
This is a woman who can’t deal with how many Americans can’t afford to buy a turkey this year so she attacks the entire holiday.
She must be a miserable guest on Thanksgiving!

“We’re a country found on unity and freedom, Joy. Not violence,” clarified the Daily Caller, while another poster reminded that, “According to Joy Reid, Thanksgiving is a holiday founded on violence and the 2020 ANTIFA riots were a mostly peaceful protest. Only unhappy people believe what Ms. Reid believe. Joy needs to find more joy in her life!”
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone except Joy Reid. 🦃🥧 pic.twitter.com/MDxnijhlnh
