Joy Reid’s Homophobia Apology Reminds Us That the Left Uses “Victim Groups” To Gain Power While Having Contempt For Them

Here’s the apology-

This note is my apology to all who are disappointed by the content of blogs I wrote a decade ago, for which my choice of words and tone have legitimately been criticized.

As a writer, I pride myself on a facility with language — an economy of words or at least some wisdom in the selection. However, that clearly has not always been the case.

In 2007 I was a morning talk radio host and blogger, writing about Florida politics (a blog I maintained until 2011.) Among the frequent subjects of my posts was then-governor Charlie Crist, at the time a conservative Republican, whose positions on issues like gay marriage and adoption by same-sex couples in Florida shared headlines with widely rumored reports that he was hiding his sexual orientation. Those reports were the subject of lots of scrutiny: by LGBTQ bloggers, writers and journalists, conservative blogs, a controversial documentary film called “Outrage,” and even by the comedic writers at South Park. But it was my own attempt at challenging Crist on my blog that has now raised the issue of not just my choice of words, but what was and is in my heart.

Let me be clear: at no time have I intentionally sought to demean or harm the LGBT community, which includes people whom I deeply love. My goal, in my ham-handed way, was to call out potential hypocrisy.

Nonetheless, as someone who is not a member of the LGBT community, I regret the way I addressed the complex issue of the closet and speculation on a person’s sexual orientation with a mocking tone and sarcasm. It was insensitive, tone deaf and dumb. There is no excusing it – not based on the taste-skewing mores of talk radio or the then-blogosphere, and not based on my intentions.

In addition to friends and coworkers and viewers, I deeply apologize to Congressman Crist, who was the target of my thoughtlessness. My critique of anti-LGBT positions he once held but has since abandoned was legitimate in my view. My means of critiquing were not.

In the years since I went from blogger to opinion journalist, I have also learned, through brilliant friends and allies in the LGBT activist community, how to better frame my critiques of those who challenge people’s right to love who they want, marry them, and walk in the world as fully free people.

Re-reading those old blog posts, I am disappointed in myself. I apologize to those who also are disappointed in me. Life can be humbling. It often is. But I hope that you know where my heart is, and that I will always strive to use my words for good. I know better and I will do better.

Insert fart noise—> HERE.

WHAT A PANT LOAD.

Time and time and time again leftists are outed making disparaging comments about gays, blacks, Muslims, poor people, refugees- you name the minority group and I’ll show you the off-color remarks made by prominent leftists.

Hell, there was that San Francisco freak, Larry Brinkin, the gay rights activist and champion for black causes, who was discovered on a message board for pedophiles saying, “I loved especially the ni**er 2 year old getting nailed.”

People were SHOCKED that a leftist could be so full of hypocrisy. I wasn’t. The left sidles up to minorities to gain power while they hold their nose.

Joy wants us to believe that she was using gay slurs to simply taunt Crist into “coming out,” and that she was actually an ally of the gays.

Of course. It makes perfect sense. If you’re angered by a guy who votes for anti-Israel measures, but you suspect that he might be hiding an actual Jewish heritage, what you do is call him a dirty, rotten, filthy kike.

Then when your epithets are discovered years later you say, “some of my best friends are Jewish.”

If you’re on the left, it works. You get the free pass. That’s why the left are dirty, rotten, filthy people.

I beg any leftist to challenge my premise. All I would have to say is, “Matt Lauer, solid leftist, feminist, sensitive to women’s rights, bent a woman over a chair and raped her until she passed out. Shocking, wasn’t it? Shall I cite more examples?”

It’s such a stretch to believe Joy Reid still harbors anti-gay sentiments, and is now going to “work on it” since she’s been caught?

  1. Ohhh okay. So as long as Crist is HER type of alleged faggot, he’s okay now? But, you understand, she was still calling her best friends faggots though, through Charlie Crist.

    And as for this part: “…and that I will always strive to use my words for good. I know better and I will do better.”
    Yeah, like the way she lies about Republicans and white people and black conservatives.
    Save it, Joyless. We know who you were and who you are now has not changed.

  2. I really like the ‘snip’ part on all your posts. I like reading your point of view.
    “Fart Noise” (this is going to be good) it doesn’t get much better
    This woman looks like a sister of M. Obama and has the same outlook on life.

  3. Dear Joy, you are a bitch. Let me be clear, at no time have I sought to demean or hurt you. Sincerely yours, Timmy.

  4. Oh! And keep in mind, the people Joy was ‘critiquing’ weren’t talking about gays in the foul way SHE did about gays or alleged gays who weren’t in HER party.

  5. Obama was against gay marriage until someone filled him in on the voting numbers. Any minority is fair play to the party of slavery.

  6. I guarantee you if Tim Wise was driving his shiny new Prius out of the Toyota lot and was t-boned by a black guy, Tim would let the N-word fly.

    (Tim Wise is the godfather of self-loathing whites who simply cannot get up the ass of any random black person far enough, because that is the economic niche he carved out in life.)

  7. if a lefty is overly praising someone in front of the camera, wait for the mic to be cut and he’ll tell you what he REALLY thinks of the person he just complimented.

  8. Loco, I have noticed a little of that myself. My dad’s side of the fam is black with native Am sprinkled in. That part doesn’t have issues with race. However, the nutty libtarded 100% black shrew that my uncle married seemed to have a problem with my (white) mom. Mostly because her kids behaved better when my mom watched them or took them places than they did when my aunt watched them. LOL!

  9. Stalin and Mao both despised and exterminated homosexuals.
    China today treats it as a serious crime and homosexuals are very much Undesirables with zero future or rights.

    If the Left ever fully comes to absolute power in America, they will ruthlessly exterminate:

    Gays,
    Blacks (both welfare types and token “leftists”),
    Jews (including the no longer Useful Idiots in media, academia and Law),

    And once they’re gone, the serious Mass Population Reductions will begin.

  10. Get into any argument with a liberal, especially about homosexuality, one of the first things they will say, is condemn you for being a closet homosexual. Or directly call you a faggot.

    If they can’t be a SJW for a victim group, they’ll WEAPONIZE and attack you with it.

    I have won so many arguments this way. Hammer away on facts, disease rate, Biblical quotes, and sure enough, they’ll crack.

  11. “Let me be clear: at no time have I intentionally sought to demean or harm the LGBT community, which includes people whom I deeply love.” <—The Reid version of "I have gay friends!" or "But I have black friends!" that they so love to mock.

    Funny how she can expect "forgiveness" or that any lefty can give it, based on her foul words' age, when they sought to destroy people such as Paula Deen, who used the "n word" to a thug who had a GUN POINTED IN HER FACE – something like 20 or more years before 2013, when lefties decided it was only fitting to punish her by trying to ruin her life.

  12. SEE I TOLD YOU SO!
    Woodshed apology. Here is what a wrote and predicted:

    Aw Snap! A “Trump” tape has emerged.

    Time for a “WOODSHED” apology! I’ll help.
    ⚫ That was a long time ago.
    ⚫ I misspoke
    ⚫ I’m sorry if I offended anyone
    ⚫ That’s not me
    ⚫ I’ve become a different person since then
    ⚫ I was taken out of context
    ⚫ Some of my best friends are gay
    ⚫ Dindunuffin
    Does that cover all the bases?

    By the numbers! If she winds up getting punished, look for the, “I look forward to spending time with my family” quote.

  13. I’d like to know how this lowlife scrubwoman got her job in the first place. She is seething with anger consistently and physically an eyesore. Who tunes in to see that sour face scowling back at you?

  14. Rufus – you nailed it with Stalin and Mao. There are two other homophobic Communist hero’s of the left that they idolize: Castro and Che Guevera.

    The funny thing about those two is that Castro’s little brother Raul has FOR DECADES been described as a flaming maricon, a mariposa. Typical Communists; they’ll condemn a group of people but when one of their family members is part of the demographic, that person gets a pass. SOCIALISM IS CORRUPTION.
