Newsmax host Eric Bolling got a chance to do what perhaps millions of Americans would love to do, call MSNBC’s Joy Reid out onto the carpet for her glaring hypocrisy and yes, racism.
As the war in Ukraine rages on, Reid decided to do what many of her left wing colleagues so often do: make it about race.
However, Bolling didn’t let her slide.
“Let’s not throw stones in glass houses, shall we not, Joy?”@ericbolling asked where @JoyAnnReid‘s “coverage of Yemen” was after the @MSNBC host complained about the racial “disparity” regarding war reporting. https://t.co/yWu6GIOaS7

On Monday, Reid whined about what she perceived, as she always does, as some sort of racial “disparity” over war coverage in Ukraine versus other parts of the world:
“Now, what we’re seeing in Ukraine is absolutely the worst humanitarian crisis that Europe has seen in decades, but we haven’t witnessed the same type of solidarity for the Yemenis as we do for the Ukrainians. We don’t see historic sanctions or global campaigns, corporations like Airbnb and Netflix taking a stand.”
But Reid was just warming up for what her true accusation against western media was.
“And this is not to say we shouldn’t care this much for Ukraine – far from it. The point is, we should also care this much for refugees in those facing occupation and war in the Middle East, and Asia and Africa too. The coverage of Ukraine has revealed a pretty radical disparity in how human Ukrainians look and feel to Western media compared to their browner and blacker counterparts, with some reporters using very telling comparisons in their analyses of the war.”

Surely with such a complaint, Reid – as part of the media, with a daily primetime national TV show – would regularly cover the war in Yemen, right?
It feels like maybe we should have paid more attention to Putin’s brutality toward Syria… but of course, those were brown Muslim people so…

Since that segment aired on her show, Reid has all completely ignored the Yemeni war and anywhere else there might be unrest in “browner” countries than Ukraine.
Mediate helpfully analyzed Reid’s show – only to discover that since her complaint, she has not covered Yemen and had largely ignored it before then.
It is here that Eric Bolling went in for the kill. He disputed Reid’s claim that world wide media is not covering conflicts like the one in Yemen and elsewhere. “These tragic events do get global media coverage. Articles are written every day. Airstrikes, peace negotiations, humanitarian crises, it’s all out there.”
Bolling then proceeded to show clips of Reid’s exhaustive coverage of, wait for it, Russia and Ukraine. Bolling then asked, “Well, look at that, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Zelensky, Ukraine. But, Joy, where’s your coverage of Yemen, Somalia, Syria? She’s had days and days to cover more of the wars and famines in the rest of the world.”
Bolling then summed up Joy Reid’s entire agenda, not just her implication that the world does not care about clashes in countries that are non-white, but her agenda in general saying, “When you find yourself making a judgment on a situation based on the color of a person’s skin, you might find that perhaps you are the one being racist.”

Joy Reid’s Greatest Hits
If there is a story that can even remotely be made about race, Joy Reid is on the case. And if there are people who disagree with her views on race, well, those people probably have a hood and some sheets in their closet.
In February, Reid discussed parents becoming more involved in their local school boards. Reid brushed off parents’ concerns over their childrens’ education, saying that “It’s about selling white grievance and rage.”
In October of 2021, Reid came to the “conclusion” that Republicans did not want “non-white” people voting. Her “proof” of this:
“And that they have divorced themselves from the idea of a multiracial democracy because a multiracial democracy means when people who look like me vote for somebody, that person can be allowed to win.”
And last May, Reid claimed that the teaching of critical race theory is being fought because “the right” to avoid teaching America’s “true” history of race:
“They want Americans to just shut up and feel good about America’s founding and sing from the hymnal, so they don’t even have to think about dealing with the repercussions of our true history and the need for repair.”
Nothing new for Joy Reid.
Joy Reid of the MSNBC Joy Reid🤣really is filled with a lot of hate and pretty good mix of “racism”…EVERYTHING is racist to her. What a way to live.
