MSNBC Host Joy-Ann Reid exposes the hypocrisy of the Right’s false concern for children when banning books instead of regulating firearms that kill children like an epidemic.
Joy-Ann Reid is on point.
Joy-Ann Reid hits the nail on the head. Are Republican politicians solely about play-acting? The start of her monologue says it all.
“Let’s talk about something that matters to all of us,” Joy-Ann Reid said. “Especially those of us who are blessed to be parents, our children. In recent years, we’ve spent a lot of time listening to outrage to conservative parents screaming about what masks are doing to their kids. We’ve heard them complain that Michelle Obama’s biography should be banned because it promotes reverse racism. Or demanding that Maus, a book about the Holocaust, or books about LGBTQ kids be banned because they make them uncomfortable. We’ve all seen the videos of raging right-wing parents at school board meetings. Of course, these supposed grassroots efforts, in scare quotes, aren’t really grassroots. I mean, they never are. As we’ve mentioned before, on this show, they are driven by Republican strategists, activists and think tanks, national Republicans, devoid of actual ideas who are looking to get out the Republican vote by feigning deep, deep concern about the kids.”
That is it in a nutshell. Joy-Ann Reid then turned the table to highlight the hypocrisy.
“Where is that same energy for these actual dangers? To our kids?” Reid asks. “All these Republicans who are claiming to be just so concerned about the kids. Ron DeSantis was an incoming freshman congressman when Sandy Hook happened. Where was his concern then? And you know what’s tragic, Governor Kristi Noem? The kids across the country have no idea what it’s like to go to school without the prospect of an active shooter showing up. I, for one, am eagerly awaiting all of your legislative proposals other than thoughts and prayers that address this urgent threat to our kids since you care so much about protecting the children.”
Republicans have proven one thing. Repeating fallacies, false equivalencies, and attenuating immorality repeatedly deadens Americans’ senses to reality, truth, and their moral compass. Democrats should push back and go on the offensive by pointing them out, as Joy-Ann Reid did in this piece. It is not hard to do. Consistency and perseverance are a must.

Please Share I don’t post much but I think people need to know this is is very important for everyone to realize what is going on in our world, my step son a US citizen has been detained in a Panama prison since August 25,2021. This place is so corrupt. The law states when a citizen is detained in any foreign country the US Embassy is supposed to be notified. This was not done by the jail, courts, court appointed attorney nor the prison. I didn’t find out till weeks later. Someone had a phone in there he called me on FB to let me know where he was. I contacted the Embassy they went there 2 times. They are supposed to check on them once a week an make sure they are ok and take them things like toiletries, make sure their basic civil rights are met.that hasn’t been done.they are supposed to make sure that conditions they are in are basic livable they are not. Any medical or mental illness are taken care of. They are not being met. Mental illness an medical are going untreated and these people sick being detained in squalid conditions without clean water and without being able to speak or understand the language. No one to interpret the language is a big barrier . The USA Embassy is supposed to help doesn’t do anything. The police are crooked, the judicial system is corrupt. They don’t seem to care about the rules, people or the system. They will mot investigate or help the people . I have not been able to talk to my step son. They will not give me a way to do that or an address to write him or send him money. I was given a n app to send him money my lawyer says it’s a fraud. Can you imagine how many other kids are there an know one knows where they are. My lawyer ISOG Law Firm would love to let everyone know how corrupt the system is there an get help to fix it.
