Joy Reid: DeSantis Will Sic Voter Integrity Police on Black People

On Monday night’s episode of The ReidOut, the vile and race-obsessed MSNBC host Joy Reid opened her show by throwing a tantrum over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signing into law the creation of a new state election integrity unit that will be tasked with helping the state enforce election laws and crackdown on voter fraud or other election irregularities. 

Reid started off by referring to DeSantis as “Baby MAGA” and wailed that he “signed a bill that allows him to create his own private police force that is tasked with pursuing alleged election law violations.” 

Doubling down on the myth that conservatives who want to uphold the integrity of our elections are promoting “the big lie”, Reid quipped “just lovely, the big lie will now have its own battalion of goons. I wonder who they’ll go after first. I think you can guess.”

 

 

Reid then brought on Democrat Gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist who hopes to beat DeSantis despite having lost two previous statewide races in Florida. Addressing Crist, she went on a rampage about all her other DeSantis related grievances: 

I mean, the other thing that went somewhat under the radar, unfortunately, is that this Governor demanded that his sycophant legislature literally eliminate Val Demings’s district and Al Lawson’s, state Senator Al Lawson’s district, it’s very very particular, it’s the same area, so now this part of Orange County will lose its black congresswoman to be replaced presumably by a Republican who he’ll draw some crazy looking district to force a Republican in there, so he’s taken away black representation.

She then returned to the voter integrity task force, accusing DeSantis of passing the law enforcement body so he can sic it “on black Floridians to intimidate them out of being able to vote.” 

It’s telling that Joy Reid hears the news of DeSantis wanting to crack down on voter fraud and immediately thinks of black people. Is she telling us that only black people commit voter fraud? Who’s the real racist? It seems like Reid is the only racist in this equation, not DeSantis.

JOY REID: Representative Charlie Crist, the former Republican Governor, now Democrat, slammed DeSantis’s tactics calling him a threat to the state’s economy and a wannabe king. And if all of that doesn’t scare you enough, buckle up buttercup. Because today baby MAGA signed a bill that allows him to create his own private police force that is tasked with pursuing alleged election law violations. Just lovely, the big lie will now have its own battalion of goons. I wonder who they’ll go after first. I think you can guess. 

(…) 

REID: And let me– you’re a member of Congress now. I mean, the other thing that went somewhat under the radar, unfortunately, is that this Governor demanded that his sycophant legislature literally eliminate Val Demings’s district and Al Lawson’s, state Senator Al Lawson’s district, it’s very very particular, it’s the same area, so now this part of Orange County will lose its black congresswoman to be replaced presumably by a Republican who he’ll draw some crazy looking district to force a Republican in there, so he’s taken away black representation. 

As you’ve said, he’s taken away the ability of African-Americans to vote and he passed this police force that you know is gonna be sicced on black Floridians to intimidate them out of being able to vote. Do you even recognize Florida at this point given what they’ve done? As you’ve said, attacking LGBT kids, teachers, threatening teachers with $10,000 fines and lawsuits just for teaching. Have you ever? Do you even recognize Florida at this point?
