MSNBC’s Joy Reid said Wednesday on her show “The ReidOut” that she believed Republicans want to portray Thanksgiving as a “simplistic fairytale” to cover up for America being founded on “violence” and “genocide.”

Reid said, “We begin tonight with Thanksgiving, the day we gather with friends and family to enjoy turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. We throw on the game and 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. As Americans, we value those traditions.”

She continued, “But it is also to unpack the myth of Thanksgiving. It is a holiday riddled with historical inaccuracies. It is 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. It’s the truth that Republicans want banned from our textbooks. Because here is the secret they want so desperately to keep, we are a country founded on violence. Our birth was violent. 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. When those humans in bondage were finally free, a terrorist organization that was a card-carrying member of polite society, The Ku Klux Klan, picked up where the Civil War ended using violence to maintain white supremacy.”


“The Klan is still active, and as Americans, we continue to choose violence. We are a country that chooses violence over and over again. There is no facet of American society that is untouched by it,” she added.

    • These people are the Anti-Christ.
      They’re the fu*king Anti-Christ.

      Her masters at PRAVDA/NBC division are the fu*king Anti-Christ.

      Rabid Radical Leftist propagandists.

  1. Yo Reid, how about I help pack your bags and you can get you skanky ass out of America and into another country since you think America is so bad

  2. Poor joy. It’s true what they say. Ignorance is bliss. Somebody should really help her out. Give her a world history book. There’s not a single place on earth that doesn’t have it’s history built on violence. Even in the animal world, nothing but violence. It’s called survival of the fittest, fight to the death, destroy your opponent, take out the weak links, etc….. She’s a special kind of stupid.

  3. One point she left out is her own Democratic party are the ones thst started it all . From slaves to the Kkk. Remember one of Bidens friends was a KKK wizard Robert Byrd.

  4. What an ungrateful woman she is. On a day meant to give thanks, she finds fault with all we have been given by the blood, swear, and tears of our forefathers. She needs to pack her bags and find someplace she feels comfortable.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  5. Well joy, go to Russia with Brittney Griner and have your Thanksgiving with her how does that sound!?you are so stupid and ignorant. Why do people watch this dumb lady. ??

  6. Dumb bitch has she been this ignorant her whole life or does this ignorance come after she made her fortune on the very country she now hate. She needs to point her finger at the government and the democratic party who was/is the party of racism.

  7. Just stuff some pie in your pie hole and enjoy a gathering with friends and the family. No need to continually dissect every freaking Holiday that rolls around. Name any Country that wasn’t founded in violence. And why are you and your pundits ignoring China and Russia’s modern day slavery opposed to your fixation with our past?

  8. Joy joy, joy. A. During the civil war, the Republican wanted blacks to be. It was the Democrats who did. B. If you are against violence, why are you not talking about BLM? Joy, joy, joy. The toilet is full!

  9. Dear miss Reid if we were founded on violence and genocide you would all be dead . But your not and your allowed to spew your racist bigotry and make money off the sweat of us who actually did thongs to bud the country rather then you who only dose things to destroy the country. Tell me once we are all gone and the country is dead who where anywhere in the world will put up with your bs because China and Russia you would already be dead . Think before you speak ignorant woman .

  10. Too dumb for any comments, a extremely racist po💩 that is a disgusting irrelevant anti American devil. Why is this c*nt even allowed on the propaganda box?
