Hanoi Joy Reid: America Was Founded on Violence, Smears Thanksgiving

On Wednesday night, while normal Americans were making last-minute preparations for Thanksgiving and spending time with family and friends, MSNBC’s Joy Reid took to the airwaves on her show The ReidOut to smear America’s founding and to distort the true story of Thanksgiving.  Right off the bat, Reid began her show by lashing out at Thanksgiving and the United States:  We begin with Thanksgiving. The day we gather with friends and family to enjoy Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. We throw on the game, 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. And as Americans, we certainly value those traditions. But it’s also important to unpack the myth of Thanksgiving. It is a holiday riddled with historical inaccuracies. “Built on this myth that the indigenous welcomed their colonizers with open arms and ears of corn,” Reid insisted. “A simplistic fairytale interpretation of a 1621 encounter between indigenous tribes and English settlers that erases the genocide that followed,” she huffed.     Reid then lashed out at the United States: “We are a country founded on violence. Our birth was violent.” She also took a page from her fellow race hustlers, including Nikole Hannah Jones of the 1619 Project, by inaccurately claiming the country was founded in racist violence: “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." Reid then ended her historically inaccurate and downright delusional rant by claiming “we are a country that chooses violence over and over again. There is no facet of the mark in society untouched by it.” A lot of families have someone like Joy Reid at their Thanksgiving dinner table and they ruin every family gathering.  This segment was made possible by AT&T.

The clan 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 the mark in society untouched by it.
