I wonder what Joy Reid actually thinks? Did she take on an ultra-Progressive persona because she wanted the gig at MSNBC and that’s what played well? Or has she really “evolved” over the past decade in her views?
In another post, Reid took aim at the Westerners who were still defending the cartoons, calling it naive to expect Muslims to embrace freedom of speech.
“You guys wanna demand that the world’s billions of Muslims get with the ‘classical liberalism’ program? Good luck. That tactic has really worked out for the Scandinavians, the British and the French,” Reid wrote, linking to stories of riots and terrorism in those countries.
Reid cites what she calls “a salient point” she found on a blog called Mark in Mexico that referred to Muslims firing guns in “garbage and sewage laden streets outside of their mud huts” and promised Muslims would wage a world war if they had the resources.
My feeling is that the only reason that a world war between civilizations has not already broken out is that the vast majority of Muslims living in the world today are so desperately poor that they have the time, energy and resources for only the occasional burst of AK-47 fire into the air from the garbage and sewage laden streets outside of their mud huts. Give them resources and I fear that they will come after us everywhere that they can find us, which is to say everywhere.
