SICK: Pleasure Reid Laughs About Rising Crime as ‘Fairy Story,’ However Fears DHS ‘Invasion’


For MSNBC’s The ReidOut host Pleasure Reid, rising city crime and violence had been simply issues she laughed about and dismissed Wednesday as a “false” “narrative” concocted by President Trump to scare “white suburbs.” 

Moderately, Reid insisted that Trump deployed “paramilitary” “secret police” throughout the nation as he prepares to disregard the outcomes of the 2020 election and that any such violence (and thus the destruction and lack of life) can be one thing to endorse because it’s “resist[ing]” a police “invasion” of America.

 

 

Six minutes into the present, Reid started one other evening of ghoulish denials and dismissals of what’s been occurring (like Tuesday’s mass capturing in Chicago) by complaining that federal regulation enforcement had been activated as “a part of [Trump’s] narrative…that Democratic-run cities are some form of hellscape.”

In a piece first tweeted by our buddy Julio Rosas at Townhall, Reid concurred with Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) asserting that Trump’s been terrorizing cities as a costume rehearsal for utilizing regulation enforcement and the navy to remain in workplace past January 2021, whatever the election outcomes (click on “increase”):

WATERS: The folks of this nation higher be nervous about what we’re seeing in Portland. We have now these paramilitary cops or whomever they’re, they’re federal officers or brokers of some type that is been organized by the President of america….Who’re these folks? Why did they’ve these sorts of uniforms on the place they will’t be recognized? We don’t know their names. We do not have something that identifies them. They’ve unmarked automobiles which were pulling folks off the road and throwing them into these automobiles and I need to inform you, Pleasure, that is what you see in international locations the place you might have dictators, in third world international locations with dictators who’ve paramilitary that they will name up….[I]t has been advised that this can be a trial run of the President of america who could also be organizing to not settle for what occurs when we’ve got the election if he is not elected. Is he going to tug out? His navy? Is he going to tug out his navy? Is he going to interact us? He has already alluded to there could also be a civil struggle if he is not re-elected. That is harmful. We’re looking for out extra about it. We have now arrange data, you recognize, to the FBI, each place, asking all of those questions on who’re these folks, the place did they arrive from, who’s paying them, and why is it being accomplished in secret? 

REID: Yeah. I feel these are the questions that lots of people are asking across the nation this night. 

Going to Charlie Sykes of The Bulwark (who, to be clear, isn’t a conservative), Reid continued her grotesque mocking of city crime by ruling Trump desires “white suburbs to be fearful of Black Lives Matter and to suppose it’s some form of revolution in opposition to the police” when it’s regulation enforcement which were behind the violence.

For somebody who rails in opposition to Trump as a conspiracy theorist, Sykes agreed with Reid and Waters: “That’s really a reasonably scary growth and it leads folks to imagine he could be trying to make use of this once more for the election.”

If folks like Daniel Dale, Oliver Darcy, Glenn Kessler, Brian Stelter, Margaret Sullivan, or websites like Politifact and Snopes cared about rooting out conspiracy theories and details, they’d loudly name these things out. However they don’t. Why? As a result of they most likely agree

Sykes engaged with this plot, deeming it a part of a “playbook…to show Individuals in opposition to each other and to take action in such a dramatic, dramatic manner and I do suppose that folks should be involved about it.”

Within the subsequent phase, Reid continued to point out no seriousness concerning the violence that harmed cops and price the lives of youngsters like Legend Taliferro, Secoriea Turner, and Natalia Wallace. As a substitute, she mocked “Trump’s secret police” “invad[ing]” cities as a ploy to go “full 1960s George Wallace and stok[e] white suburban voters’ fears of violent crime.”

Maybe Pleasure ought to ask the 15 shot Tuesday night outside a Chicago funeral if that is all recreation.

Whereas interviewing former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, Reid known as the Freddie Grey riots an “rebellion” and known as regulation enforcement restoring order in 2015 “a provocation.” 

 

 

After Johnson stated Baltimore confirmed {that a} federal presence in Portland would “mak[e] issues worse,” Reid endorsed violence in cities with federal assist: “When it appears to be like like an invasion, the pure inclination is to withstand it.”

Reid returned to her barbaric recreation of mocking crime, invoking the present Portlandia to assert Portland hasn’t been “uncontrolled” or “below siege” to supposedly rebut the Trump administration’s “fairy story” (click on “increase”):

REID: Okay, you recognize what’s loopy? Donald Trump’s marketing campaign advertisements. Who’s producing this stuff? They’re a mixture of, like, Mad Max, Past Thunderdome, and Friday the 13th. 

911 OPERATOR [in campaign ad]: You’ve reached 911. I’m sorry that there isn’t any one right here to reply your emergency name. Depart a message and we are going to get again to you as quickly as we will.

[ON-SCREEN GRAPHIC, in campaign ad: You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America]

REID: Okay, so initially, nearly nothing about that advert is right. Joe Biden doesn’t need to defund the police, a lot to the chagrin of many progressives. However that is not the loopy factor. Trump has based mostly his marketing campaign technique on portray a false portrait of cities below siege. 

TRUMP [on 07/19/20] Portland was completely uncontrolled. The Democrats, liberal Democrats who had been working the place had no concept what they had been doing.

REID: Okay, information flash. Portland will not be an city hell gap. They actually made a present mocking Portland because the land of brunches, veganism, and feminist bookshops. It is known as Portlandia, whats up. No, no, no. The loopy factor is whoever’s accountable for Trump’s grim’s fairy story advertisements retains making actually weird errors….After weeks spent scaring Individuals that liberals need to tear down American monuments, the Trump workforce vows we’ll shield this, However this isn’t an American monument. It is the very well-known Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. So, that’s loopy. However even crazier? They did it once more. In a brand new Fb advert, Trump contrasts public security and chaos and violence. Now, chaos and violence is represented by what appears to be like like a bunch of protesters attacking a police officer on the bottom. Scary. These rattling liberal mobs. Get off my streets and off my garden. The one downside? That is not America. It is not even 2020. It’s a photograph from Ukraine from 2014 throughout clashes to overthrow the pro-Russian authorities. In different phrases, it’s as faux because the President’s personal pledge of regulation and order and that’s the craziest rattling factor on the planet immediately.

Excited by combating again? Listed below are just a few of the advertisers that supplied monetary help  (by means of ads) for Reid’s vile drivel dismissing crime, destruction, and murders in cities throughout America: Allstate, Ancestry, Chevrolet, LegalZoom, and TD Ameritrade.

JOY REID: You understand, and what Donald Trump has determined he desires to guide on is sending armed forces, they are not troops. They — they’re dressed up as if they’re navy, however they are not, into Democratic-run cities. It is a part of this narrative that he is had actually since Barack Obama was president that Democratic-run cities are some form of hellscape that he must do one thing about. I need to play a bit of video for you that can look acquainted to you. That is you intervening in — in a visitors cease of a younger black man who was pulled over by police and that is what occurred once you confirmed up. Have a look. 

[CLIP OF WATERS AT TRAFFIC STOP] 

REID: You understand, that — that exhibits not solely the connection that you’ve got along with your constituents, clearly, and actually public service. You understand, for lots of black folks, that visitors cease could be a terrifying ordeal. What do you make of the truth that on high of that worry, and, you recognize, kudos to you for intervening for that younger man, however now, communities are dealing with what appear like paramilitary troops, form of secret police converging on you recognize, cities, Democratic-led cities. 

CONGRESSWOMAN MAXINE WATERS (D-CA): The folks of this nation higher be nervous about what we’re seeing in Portland. We have now these paramilitary cops or whomever they’re, they’re federal officers or brokers of some type that is been organized by the President of america. He didn’t contact the native mayors. He didn’t contact the governors. He simply despatched them in. Who’re these folks? Why did they’ve these sorts of uniforms on the place they will’t be recognized? We don’t know their names. We do not have something that identifies them. They’ve unmarked automobiles which were pulling folks off the road and throwing them into these automobiles and I need to inform you, pleasure, that is what you see in international locations the place you might have dictators, in third world international locations with dictators who’ve paramilitary that they will name up in opposition to the — anytime they need. As a matter of truth, it has been advised that this can be a trial run of the President of america who could also be organizing to not settle for what occurs when we’ve got the election if he is not elected. Is he going to tug out? His navy? Is he going to tug out his navy? Is he going to interact us? He has already alluded to there could also be a civil struggle if he is not re-elected. That is harmful. We’re looking for out extra about it. We have now arrange data, you recognize, to the FBI, each place, asking all of those questions on who’re these folks, the place did they arrive from, who’s paying them, and why is it being accomplished in secret? 

REID: Yeah. I feel these are the questions that lots of people are asking across the nation this night. Congresswoman Maxine Waters, thanks a lot. We admire your time tonight.

WATER: Properly, thanks for having me, Pleasure.

REID: And with me now, in fact, thanks very a lot, Congresswoman. Let me now herald Jason Johnson and Charlie Sykes to select up on that. You understand, there have been questions on — and I’ll begin with you, Charlie — about whether or not or not what Donald Trump is doing — it’s clearly a marketing campaign stunt. He desires the white suburbs to be fearful of Black Lives Matter and to suppose it’s some form of revolution in opposition to the police, and many others. However what he’s doing now’s he’s supplementing what had been already some violent reactions by some cops to the protests along with his personal paramilitary pressure who’re dressed high appear like the navy as he if he is attempting create a picture that Black Lives Matter protestors are attacking the navy or being attacked by the navy, or at struggle with the navy. That’s really a reasonably scary growth and it leads folks to imagine he could be trying to make use of this once more for the election.

CHARLIE SYKES: Properly, he’s utilizing it for the election proper now. I imply, he is already weaponizing it. I imply, watch the best way that he’s already utilizing it on tv advertisements. He will put $10 million into marketing campaign advertisements exhibiting this sort of navy pressure. And naturally, the irony is that what he seems to need is extra scenes like we noticed out of Lafayette Park in — in June which I feel was an actual inflection level as Individuals recoiled from using pressure in opposition to harmless civilians who’re protesting, however that is clearly one in every of his narratives and albeit, I do not suppose that Thomas Friedman goes too far when it is type of a wag the canine situation, nevertheless it’s not wagging the canine by developing with a struggle in opposition to an enemy — the international enemy. It’s in opposition to the American public, so the playbook right here is to show Individuals in opposition to each other and to take action in such a dramatic, dramatic manner and I do suppose that folks should be involved about it and I’m going to have an interest to see how Republicans react. How small authorities Republicans react to this federal intervention in what is mostly a state and native matter.

REID: Yeah, properly, they have been fairly quiet thus far. 

(….)

7:20 p.m. Japanese

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: This bloodshed should finish. This bloodshed will finish. At the moment, I am asserting a surge of federal regulation enforcement into American communities affected by violent crime. [SCREEN WIPE] We simply began this course of and albeit, we’ve got no alternative however to get entangled. 

REID: In a — in a bid to save lots of his flailing marketing campaign by going full 1960s George Wallace and stoking white suburban voters’ fears of violent crime, Donald Trump introduced immediately that he is deploying extra federal forces to cities across the nation and he hopefully stated the quiet half out loud by stating the cities that can be in a way invaded by Trump’s secret police are led by Democratic mayors. Albuquerque, Chicago, and Kansas Metropolis, however Trump will not be pulling his fairly blatant marketing campaign ploy off with out dissent, together with from inside his administration over the paramilitary forces that he is already despatched to Portland. As Politico stories, Secretary of Protection Mark Esper expressed concern that these regulation enforcement had been being confused with troops. That is as a result of Trump’s forces in Portland are dressed up in camouflage fight fatigues, the exact same ones worn by the U.S. navy in struggle zones abroad, however these are usually not — to repeat — not U.S. troops. They’re brokers from varied businesses below the Division of Homeland Safety. And because the founding secretary of that division has stated, they had been by no means supposed for use for this objective. Here is Tom Ridge yesterday. 

TOM RIDGE: The division was established to guard America from the ever current risk of world terrorism. It was not established to be president’s private militia. 

REID: He additionally, now that non-public militia may even include brokers from the FBI, the DEA, ATF, and the U.S. Marshals, based on Trump’s announcement immediately. I am joined now by former Secretary of Homeland Safety Jeh Johnson. Secretary Johnson, your ideas on this. Do you agree with Tom Ridge as a result of Ridge additionally stated that whereas he welcomed the chance to work with any federal company to battle crime, that it could with a chilly day in hell earlier than he would consent to an unilateral, uninvited intervention on one in every of his cities. What are your ideas on these form of fake navy troops invading Democratic-led cities?

JEH JOHNSON: Properly, first, Pleasure, congratulations on the brand new present. 

REID: Thanks. 

JOHNSON: [INAUDIBLE] That’s fairly a begin. Congratulations.

REID: Thanks.

JOHNSON: I couldn’t agree extra with my predecessor, Tom Ridge. If I had been in workplace now, it is onerous to think about being in workplace on this administration, but when I bear in mind in workplace proper now, I’d most likely be saying to my subordinates inside DHS, a surge like this could most likely be unnecessarily provocative and really make issues worse. Those that do not know classes of historical past are sure to repeat them. One of many issues we realized from Ferguson in 2014 is {that a} militaristic strategy, a militaristic presence on the treats of america in our cities throughout moments of excessive stress can really make issues worse and be provocative and so, I used to be happy that in congress proper now, there’s laws working its manner by means of to restrict the sale of protection division tools to civilian regulation enforcement in our cities as a result of provocative. You see these photos of people that used to work for me in camouflage who appear like a navy? And it is provocative. It is making issues worse and so I used to be happy that, in Congress proper now, there’s laws working its manner by means of to restrict the sale of Protection Division tools to civilian regulation enforcement in our cities as a result of it’s provocative. You see these photos of people that used to work for me in camouflage of people that appear like the navy? And it’s provocative. It’s making issues worse. And admittedly, the entire thing does scent like politics. This smells like attempting to play the regulation and order Richard Nixon card from 1968 however the nationwide temper could be very totally different now and Donald Trump will not be the challenger. Donald Trump the incumbent. That is occurring on his watch. He owns this and so if I had been Joe Biden, I’d really  be saying what Ronald Reagan stated within the 1980 debate in opposition to Jimmy Carter. Are you higher off now than you had been 4 years in the past and are you able to say let’s have 4 extra years of this? The nationwide temper could be very, very totally different proper now.

REID: You understand, and I can recall being in — in Baltimore for the Freddie Grey up — you recognize, rebellion and that is an absolute reality. You understand, the — the tanks on the streets had been a provocation and the, you recognize, and these had been cops who had been dressed up like they had been within the navy with this form of uniform on that made them look nearly like they had been navy folks and that was certainly provocative, however I need to allow you to hearken to what retired lieutenant basic Russel Honore has needed to say. He was talking final evening with Brian Williams. And this was — this was his response as a navy man, to see these troops dressed like they had been navy folks. Take a pay attention. 

RUSSEL HONORE: And that uniform is designed to mix in to terrain, to not make you appear like a warrior. They’re sporting this uniform as a perform of intimidation, to appear like warriors. Actual troopers simply do not stroll as much as folks to start out beating on them. [SCREEN WIPE] They’re appearing like uncontrolled mob on the road with uniforms and badges that they do not present, as you see proper right here, they beat this man up. You possibly can’t — you shouldn’t — police do not do that. Watch this. What sort of [EXPLETIVE] Is that?

REID: I imply you have had Thomas Friedman in The New York Occasions name this a wag the canine struggle. Basically, Donald Trump seeming to invade these cities with these false navy troops as if to make it appear like Black Lives Matter is at struggle with the navy. You understand, as someone who’s obtained a son within the navy, how do you’re feeling about that? About them form of borrowing the status of the navy and placing that on this warrior tradition that they are inculcating within the DHS?

JOHNSON: Pleasure, one of many the explanation why our navy enjoys such super belief and respect in our society is as a result of we hold the navy cupboard on this free and open democracy to abroad conflicts. You noticed the response after Lafayette Sq. from the retired generals and admirals to this web site of a 4 star basic, the chairman of the joint chiefs in camouflage strolling throughout Pennsylvania Avenue and closely armored personnel on the streets coping with civilians who haven’t got weapons and we react accordingly to it and this present occasion in Portland is creating a lot the identical disaster and far the identical atmosphere and it is wholly pointless. I used to say to DHS element leaders, let’s keep away from controversial one off missions which can be away from our core mission. In as far as DHS is worried. There’s the Federal Protecting service, which their core mission is defending federal buildings. I deployed the Federal Protecting Service in occasions of excessive stress to guard federal buildings, however you apparently even have parts of Customs and Border Safety, these are border —  these are border safety folks, port safety folks, and ICE, immigration enforcement. Folks that implement our immigration legal guidelines partaking on this and I used to say to folks inside DHS, let’s not let sideshows, ancillary like this derail our core mission and discredit us within the communities the place we have to function and plainly, nobody is making that calculation proper now and it is really most likely making issues worse, not higher. 

REID: Yeah. Certainly. When it appears to be like like an invasion, the pure inclination is to withstand it.

(….)

7:48 p.m. Japanese

REID: Okay, you recognize what’s loopy? Donald Trump’s marketing campaign advertisements. Who’s producing this stuff? They’re a mixture of, like, Mad Max, Past Thunderdome, and Friday the 13th. 

911 OPERATOR [in campaign ad]: You’ve reached 911. I’m sorry that there isn’t any one right here to reply your emergency name. Depart a message and we are going to get again to you as quickly as we will.

[ON-SCREEN GRAPHIC, in campaign ad: You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America]

REID: Okay, so initially, nearly nothing about that advert is right. Joe Biden doesn’t need to defund the police, a lot to the chagrin of many progressives. However that is not the loopy factor. Trump has based mostly his marketing campaign technique on portray a false portrait of cities below siege. 

TRUMP [on 07/19/20] Portland was completely uncontrolled. The Democrats, liberal Democrats who had been working the place had no concept what they had been doing.

REID: Okay, information flash. Portland will not be an city hell gap. They actually made a present mocking Portland because the land of brunches, veganism, and feminist bookshops. It is known as Portlandia, whats up. No, no, no. The loopy factor is whoever’s accountable for Trump’s grim’s fairy story advertisements retains making actually weird errors. Now, I assume it is smart. In any case, the trump’s aren’t precisely identified for his or her element. Don Jr.’s cannot even get the apostrophe proper on the duvet. I assume grammar counts a liberal privilege. However for Crew America First, in addition they appear to have an actual downside with the idea of American geography. Like thisonline advert. After weeks spent scaring Individuals that liberals need to tear down American monuments, the Trump workforce vows we’ll shield this, However this isn’t an American monument. It is the very well-known Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. So, that’s loopy. However even crazier? They did it once more.
