MSNBC’s Joy Reid: Conservatives Would Trade Tax Cuts to ‘Openly Say the N-Word’

David Ruiz, Fox News, March 4, 2021

Far-left MSNBC host Joy Reid’s outrageous week continued Wednesday when she tweeted that conservatives would all love to “openly say the n-word” and felt oppressed because they couldn’t be “openly racist.”

“I’ll say it again: people on the right would trade all the tax cuts for the ability to openly say the n-word like in ‘the good old days.’ To them, not being able to be openly racist and discriminatory without consequence is oppression. Trump is the avatar for this ‘freedom,'” Reid tweeted.

Reid made the comment while responding to MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson, who was himself responding to a tweet from former New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss.

Johnson asserted Weiss was trying to defend the idea of privately using racial slurs when she discussed how many people feel the need to “self-censor” for fear of being reprisal. A center-left writer, Weiss is loathed by many figures on the left, particularly for her views on free speech.

Reid’s bizarre tweet came the same day she said states like Texas and Mississippi that are opening up and reversing mask mandates are doing so because White residents want Black people to “get their behinds into the factory and make me my steaks.”
