Constructing on what we noticed final week within the left’s hatred for minorities who refuse to be pigeon-holed, Tuesday’s ReidOut added trans folks to that group as MSNBC host Pleasure Reid and Charlotte Clymer melted down over Republican Caitlyn Jenner’s California gubernatorial bid as a result of, of their world, Jenner was a “hypocrite” and “horrible individual” who “doesn’t signify the trans group.”
And worse but, she subscribes to a Republican Social gathering that “promote[s] rage over precise coverage” and thus makes her an instance of a celebration that’s “absolutely the worst.”
A well-known homophobe, Reid teased this takedown all through the present, warning she would tackle how “conservatives have discovered some new cultural points to be outraged” and there have been “tales advised by idiots filled with sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
Speak about irony coming from somebody whose total present has existed to prime viewers to hate these on the alternative facet the of spectrum and rage about how they’re accountable for what ails the nation.
It was in that spirit that Reid started her every day “Absolute Worst” phase with a cartoonish strawman the dimensions of the tallest constructing on the earth that the correct is stuffed with racists who stay in worry of Black folks and their existence is derived from idiocy (click on “broaden”):
The Republican Social gathering appears to be like lots totally different than it did simply 12 years in the past, however one distinct characteristic stays, that seething, foaming on the mouth conservative rage led by a nascent tea get together motion enraged over healthcare and by healthcare — and by healthcare, I imply, a black president. Quick ahead to now, ObamaCare stays however the tea get together, in lots of respects, bought what it wished, a far proper galvanized by the worry of a black president. And of a future the place white, cis, straight, Christian males usually are not the masters of the universe.
And that conservative outrage machine, you see it churning on daily basis on the Home ground or in commentaries by Tuckums and his buddies at Fox Information as a result of maintaining their base indignant is much extra necessary than really governing, even when the boogeyman is actually a baby. Enter their newest fixation, trans youth who’re threatening to take over fourth grade volleyball with a vengeance and by that, I imply they don’t seem to be. It is a make-believe disaster, the Republicans’ favourite type. However as a substitute of pink meat or plastic potatoes, this conflict has actual penalties. Transgender ladies, who already really feel unsafe in colleges, are actually dealing with an onslaught of state laws concentrating on them from taking part in sports activities and the justification for kicking these children off the staff? Caitlyn Jenner sums it up.
Reid then performed a clip of Jenner saying that, regardless of being a trans girl, “we have now to guard ladies sports activities” as a result of organic males competing in girls’s sports activities “simply isn’t honest.”
As an alternative of contemplating this opposite view, Reid went into one other condescending match over how the California Republican “doesn’t communicate for the trans group.”
Reid’s proof? Properly, Jenner can’t be an enough trans voice or officeholder as a result of “she is a long-time Republican who’s additionally a vehement Trump supporter” and thus somebody who doesn’t “really acre about equity in ladies sports activities, similar to they do not really care about unborn fetuses” or “reasonably priced healthcare.”
“It is about forcing the opposite to exist of their shadow in order that they will proceed residing in a rustic the place their standing is protected towards all else and that’s the reason the GOP promoting rage over precise coverage is absolutely the worst,” she added.
This carried over into the present’s final phase. As a part of a dialogue concerning the supposed greatness of the 1619 Venture, Reid lamented to Clymer that “the trans children assaults form of virtually reduce towards this want for Individuals to really feel heroic” and good about themselves.
Going off the identical cue playing cards, Clymer mentioned that it was proof that the GOP “has run out of concepts” after Donald Trump killed a half million folks with the coronavirus and as a substitute would go after trans children “as a result of most Individuals do not know lots about trans folks and trans well being care, so that they’re simply — they’re bullying younger trans children.”
Clymer additionally made positive to play the race card, stating the GOP was racist and transphobic by at all times “exhibiting photos of younger, black trans girls in highschool subsequent to younger, white ladies, cis white ladies.”
A couple of minutes later, Reid requested Clymer about Jenner to which the trans activist lashed out on the former Olympian as somebody both too evil or silly to know what’s good for her.
Based mostly on Clymer’s use of the labels “hypocrite,” “hateful,” and “Phyllis Schlafly of the trans group,” we’re going to lean towards the previous (click on “broaden”):
REID: Caitlyn Jenner is a — is an odd determine as a result of she was for Donald Trump, and he was, you understand, a immediately anti-trans President. And now, she is operating for governor and has now determined she too is towards trans ladies taking part in sports activities.
CLYMER: That’s proper.
REID: I do not perceive it. Inside the group, what are folks saying and fascinated by this?
CLYMER: Pay attention, each marginalized group has members that work towards the equality of that group. It is — you understand, each group has that. For trans of us, Caitlyn Jenner is the Phyllis Schlafly of the trans group. That’s who she is. She has at all times labored towards LGBTQ equality. She has at all times labored towards our pursuits. So once we noticed her throw trans youngsters underneath the bus and immediately assault trans youngsters in that interview, we weren’t shocked. That is who she is. And by the way in which, she’s a hypocrite. Simply final yr, she advised trans journalist Don Innes [sic] on her podcast that she had downside with trans children taking part in on groups that align with their gender id. Caitlyn Jenner has performed in girls’s golf tournaments for God’s sake. That is somebody who panders. She is a hypocrite, and — and he or she is a hateful one who has no downside attacking trans folks to construct her model.
Clearly impressed, Reid wrapped the present with this reply: “Very effectively mentioned.”
