Joy Reid Assumes All Looters in FL are Racial Minorities — Racist?

MSNBC’s far-left host Joy Reid claimed in an unhinged segment about Gov. DeSantis (R-FL) that statements about Florida being a “Second Amendment state” were targeting people of color. She claimed regarding the statements that they signified “segregationist” talk, apparently claiming all looters were racial minorities.

Mediaite reports:

“Don’t even think about looting. Don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation,” DeSantis said. “You can have people bringing boats into some of these islands and trying to ransack people’s homes. I can tell you, in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s home. And I would not want to chance that if I were you, given that we’re a Second Amendment state.”

Reid noticed DeSantis’ remarks in a video CBS posted to Twitter, and the ReidOut host decided to compare that warning of gun-toting Floridians to the words of infamous segregationist Walter E. Headley.

“‘When the looting starts, the shooting starts,’” Reid said as she quoted Headley. “Didn’t take DeSantis long to return to form.”

“When the looting starts, the shooting start,” is a quote frequently attributed to Headley, the Miami police chief historically known for encouraging officers to use force to crack down on civil rights protests. Reid’s tweet included a link to an NPR article that delves into the history of the phrase, and the possibility that Headley lifted it from Eugene “Bull” Connor, another notorious segregationist.

The scary part is there still are people who will believe what she says and disbelieve their own lying eyes every time the media shows the fine upstanding thugs looters ransacking a store, or beating up defenseless people, or killing some ne to steal their car

Is there any doubt that Joy Reid is racist and stupid? She doesn’t even look at her comments beforehand for their underlying assumptions. But what should you expect? One BLM leader here in Chicago referred to the looting during the summer of 2020 as reparations.

Joyless Reid is a boil on the butt of humanity. She needs to undergo a lancing procedure that will include suturing here lying mouth.

Was Joy Reid here during Hurricane Ian? No, of course not! All those people who lost everything do not deserve to be treated as second class citizens by this KKK racist and her besties Kamala Harris! Harried is stating we should dole out money to only minorities and Reid is suggesting everyone should loot empty dwellings that may still be standing. Is this their right to be so stupid? I guess so, but temper what you are saying with some common sense even if you don’t have any brain power!

Well, statistics are formed by the “biggest percentage of” and, truth being told, out ten crimes, eight are committed by a minority.
So, and although I despise Roy’s way to be, this time I agree with the statement regarding the “shooting of looters is aimed at minorities”.
The way to prove her wrong is for minorities to not do what they are well known for. But, such effort would be as “doable” as asking an scorpion not to sting.
