Charlotte, NC — I am tired of listening and reading about Leftists who throw out racist dog whistles meant to demean and degrade conservatives, particularly black conservatives, who dare think differently than their liberal counterparts.
This brings me to the clueless and racist MSNBC hack Joy Reid. Reid was apparently so angry last night that she decided to casually toss out a racial slur toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
During last night’s election coverage, Reid sat on a panel and began discussing whether or not anyone on the Supreme Court is trustworthy enough to handle this election fairly should it come down to the Supreme Court having to weigh in. For whatever reason, Reid took aim first at Clarence Thomas, calling him “Uncle Clarence.”
“If somehow [the Trump campaign] manage to stumble into the Supreme Court, do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law? No,” she said. “It is a completely politicized Supreme Court that you can’t just trust that they’re going to do the right thing.”

“Uncle Clarence” is a derogatory spin on “Uncle Tom” derives its meaning from the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The bestselling novel was written by abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe in 1852 and was meant to rally the moral sentiments of whites against the horrors of slavery, and it succeeded. But the character of “Uncle Tom” has become synonymous with servility and self-hatred.
This offensive and commonly used slur by weak-willed racists was lobbed at Thomas simply because he’s not a Democrat-sympathizing black man. Black conservatives too often have similar names thrown at them. However, not only was this racist toward Thomas, it was racist toward white people as well. Why? Because it suggests we somehow have control over a black man and for the malicious purpose of having black representation we can control.
What’s even more insidious is no one on the panel said anything to Reid about the slur and let it go without challenge. But I suppose it’s fitting because racism and bigotry are common staples on the MSNBC network and they’re more than okay if they slant toward one direction and one direction only. I guarantee you people at MSNBC, including Joy Reid, would be irate had someone at Fox News said this.
Back in 2018, Reid came under fire for slurs that she’s used previously after she misjudged her place in the leftist social justice hierarchy. She thought she could get away with using homophobic and transgender slurs in a blog she had written years ago, but that blew up in her face when they came to the surface that year. She was equally arrogant and dumb to suggest she was hacked as the only possible reason this could occur. Her audience began abandoning her over it.
Unfortunately, Reid is the kind of person to throw around hateful phrases with reckless abandon, despite this kind of thing supposedly being taboo according to leftists principles.
But that’s exactly what absolves her of this, isn’t it?
