EVIL: Pleasure Reid Accuses GOP of Desirous to See Folks Die from COVID

Dearest readers, by no means go full Ed Schultz. It’s by no means a great look. On Tuesday’s ReidOut, MSNBC host Pleasure Reid did simply that, accusing Republicans of “bolt[ing] the door” shut in a burning home, purposefully trapping People because the coronavirus rages and see no downside with any and all People who die because of it.

And if the venomous rhetoric wasn’t sufficient, Reid demanded People spend the vacations in crippling psychological isolation (or threat burying family members at Christmas), peddled pretend information on Operation Warp Velocity, and said Republicans “don’t care” about unemployment amongst minorities.

 

 

Reid started with the home hearth analogy:

Think about, when you can, being in a home that’s on hearth and when you can hear the fireplace division sirens within the distance, rescue is so shut. You’ll be able to’t get out as a result of somebody has bolted the door. America is in a nationwide coronavirus disaster. Our home is on hearth and Republican elected officers are doing the equal of locking the door with the American individuals trapped inside.

After mentioning the growing caseload of coronavirus instances in all 50 states (and Republican Senator Chuck Grassley’s testing optimistic), Reid recommended Republicans nationwide have been sitting idly by and doing nothing regardless of being “the get together that bangs on concerning the sanctity of life.”

Reid then lobbed the disgusting declare about Republicans wanting dying: “[T]hey’re busy combating masks mandates and pushing again on widespread sense well being suggestions as a result of freedom, which apparently means the liberty to die and the liberty to kill different individuals with the virus.”

“So, whereas Republicans are busy demanding freedom from masks, they apparently may care much less concerning the 248,000 People who’ve misplaced their lives to the virus they usually settle for no accountability for any of it,” she added.

Reid’s Operation Warp Velocity lie got here after a mash-up of clips from Republican Senators (click on “increase”):

SENATOR JOHN BARRASSO (R-WY): This vaccine really is the sunshine on the finish of the tunnel and made doable by the dedication of the Republican majority within the Senate and this administration. And our efforts to give attention to Operation Warp Velocity. 

SENATOR JONI ERNST (R-IA): Operation Warp Velocity has been an amazing success for this administration. I do wish to give a shout out to the Trump administration for making this doable. 

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): Seems to me just like the         Speaker, the Democratic chief of the Senate, and former vp Biden all have the view that two and a half trillion or nothing. 

SENATOR JOHN THUNE (R-SD): We’ll proceed to have an open door and we’re prepared to barter at moments discover. 

REID: I simply wish to reality test actual fast to remind y’all that the businesses themselves which might be producing the vaccines weren’t concerned in operation warp pace and have stated as a lot, in order that’s a lie. In the meantime, it’s Democrats who’ve handed a complete coronavirus bundle method again in might and handed it once more in October. It is at present languishing someplace in McConnell’s workplace subsequent to the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. 

Calling Republicans the only supply of “political divisiveness” and a “rot” that’s “unfold…all the way in which to the states,” Reid insisted that, not like Republicans, Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) desires “to guard individuals” and it makes her “wish to climb the partitions” that anybody would oppose her.

Right here was Reid persevering with her analogy that Republicans wish to see individuals die and saying that households will likely be burying family members at Christmas in the event that they see one another at Thanksgiving (click on “increase”):

REID: Additionally they do not shield individuals from dying at COVID. Dr. Atlas works with Trump and I wanna notice, by the way in which, that your state has 288,000 instances. 8,431 deaths. That’s a few 9/11s plus. Right here’s Dr. Atlas criticizing plans — criticizing individuals who say do not go see aged family members at Thanksgiving. Right here’s Dr. Atlas.

DR. SCOTT ATLAS [on FNC’s The Story, 11/16/20]: This type of isolation is likely one of the unstated tragedies of the aged who are actually being advised, do not see your loved ones at Thanksgiving. For many individuals, that is their ultimate Thanksgiving, consider it or not. What are we doing right here? I believe we’ve to have a coverage which I’ve been advocating, which is a complete particular person, entire well being coverage. It isn’t about simply stopping instances of COVID. Now we have to speak concerning the harm of the coverage itself. 

REID: He stated, for many individuals, that is — this will likely — that is their ultimate Thanksgiving. And will probably be for lots of the individuals in the event that they see their aged family members. Then they will bury them round Christmas time. But, your state’s Republican Celebration is attempting to question you for having restrictions. What do you even say to that?

(….)

REID: [U]nfortunately, we’ve to struggle the virus and a political get together that’s entrenched itself in standing 4 sq. towards democracy and towards combating a virus. They’ve taken the opposite facet by way of the conflict towards the virus. I do not get it.

On the finish of the present, Reid falsely claimed that Senate Majority Chief Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “is laser-focused on pushing by right-wing judges and nominees however in no nice hurry to go a invoice that will give People the reduction that they so desperately want proper now.”

Representing the facet that’s demanded all People come collectively post-election, Reid advised former HUD Secretary Julian Castro that she doesn’t “perceive Republicans” and doesn’t “perceive what they’re.”

Within the present’s ultimate minute, Reid fed one final dose of poison to viewers by claiming Republicans “don’t care” about nationwide financial hardship apart from what occurs to white individuals (and regardless of President Trump’s large help amongst minorities).

Pleasure Reid accusing Republicans of willfully desirous to see mass coronavirus deaths was made doable due to (and thus made doable due to the endorsement of) advertisers similar to Chevrolet, Uncover, and Qunol. Observe the hyperlinks to the MRC’s Conservatives Combat Again web page.

JOY REID: Think about, when you can, being in a home that’s on hearth and when you can hear the fireplace division sirens within the distance, rescue is so shut. You’ll be able to’t get out as a result of somebody has bolted the door. America is in a nationwide coronavirus disaster. Our home is on hearth and Republican elected officers are doing the equal of locking the door with the American individuals trapped inside. Each single state plus Washington D.C., Virgin Islands all reported will increase in instances of the terrifying sickness attributable to the coronavirus up to now two weeks. 70,000 People are hospitalized tonight and 1000’s are dying, alone in hospitals throughout the nation and having to say goodbye on their telephones and iPads. Even the White Home Process Power, which has had no contact with the President of the USA in 5 months, issued an alarming evaluation this week, which was obtained by NBC Information, warning of an “aggressive, unrelenting, increasing broad neighborhood unfold throughout the nation….reaching most counties with out proof of enchancment however slightly, additional deterioration. And tonight, Chuck Grassley, the 87 year-old Republican senator from Iowa has confirmed that he examined optimistic for COVID-19. Simply yesterday, he was within the Senate chamber, maskless. So the place is the President’s get together? The place is the get together that bangs on concerning the sanctity of life? Proper now, they’re busy combating masks mandates and pushing again on widespread sense well being suggestions as a result of freedom, which apparently means the liberty to die and the liberty to kill different individuals with the virus. Take Senator Ted Cruz. His residence state of Texas is overwhelmed. Hospitals are reaching the breaking level. However the junior Senator is busy lobbing Twitter insults at Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, calling him an “ass” and an fool. His phrases, not mine, as a result of he dared to ask a fellow Republican to put on a masks whereas residing over the chamber.

[SENATE CLIP]

REID: So, whereas Republicans are busy demanding freedom from masks, they apparently may care much less concerning the 248,000 People who’ve misplaced their lives to the virus they usually settle for no accountability for any of it. The truth is, consider it or not, they assume they deserve credit score. 

SENATOR JOHN BARRASSO (R-WY): This vaccine really is the sunshine on the finish of the tunnel and made doable by the dedication of the Republican majority within the Senate and this administration. And our efforts to give attention to Operation Warp Velocity. 

SENATOR JONI ERNST (R-IA): Operation Warp Velocity has been an amazing success for this administration. I do wish to give a shout out to the Trump administration for making this doable. 

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY): Seems to me just like the Speaker, the Democratic chief of the Senate, and former vp Biden all have the view that two and a half trillion or nothing. 

SENATOR JOHN THUNE (R-SD): We’ll proceed to have an open door and we’re prepared to barter at moments discover. 

REID: I simply wish to reality test actual fast to remind y’all that the businesses themselves which might be producing the vaccines weren’t concerned in operation warp pace and have stated as a lot, in order that’s a lie. In the meantime, it’s Democrats who’ve handed a complete coronavirus bundle method again in might and handed it once more in October. It is at present languishing someplace in McConnell’s workplace subsequent to the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. And in the present day, Dr. Anthony Fauci appeared actually pissed off by the politicization by Republicans of the virus. 

DR. TONY FAUCI: That is the worst outbreak that we’ve had of a respiratory born sickness in 102 years. You’ll be able to’t run away from the info. It’s incomprehensible to me how persons are not seeing that. These are actual numbers and sadly, we’ve gotten right into a scenario of political divisiveness {that a} public well being message like on attempting to present isn’t encroaching on anyone’s freedom. 

REID: Sadly for the American individuals, the political divisiveness, which means the rot unfold down the Republican pipeline all the way in which to the states a very long time in the past. In South Dakota as deaths proceed to skyrocket, Governor Noem has proudly refused to implement any statewide restrictions as a result of, as her workplace places it, they have not labored. In Minnesota, Republican state senators refused to inform the Democratic counterparts they’d an outbreak of their ranks. In Wisconsin, state Republicans labored at each flip to roll again any measure the democratic governor has applied to attempt to struggle the virus. The editorial board of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel referred to as the get together out, writing: “What number of extra must get sick and die earlier than lawmakers work with the governor and do their jobs?” And in neighboring Michigan, state Republicans are looking for to question Governor Gretchen Whitmer as a result of she’s attempting to guard individuals. On Sunday, the governor and state well being officers introduced new restrictions and an increase in instances. The home is on hearth. And becoming a member of me now’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan. And Governor, thanks a lot for being right here. I actually admire your presence tonight. It’s insanity. I am sorry. It is — it’s sufficient to make you wish to climb the partitions. It is unbelievable what Republicans are doing, together with to you.

DR. SCOTT ATLAS [on FNC’s The Story, 11/16/20]: This type of isolation is likely one of the unstated tragedies of the aged who are actually being advised, do not see your loved ones at Thanksgiving. For many individuals, that is their ultimate Thanksgiving, consider it or not. What are we doing right here?

REID: He stated, for many individuals, that is — this will likely — that is their ultimate Thanksgiving. And will probably be for lots of the individuals in the event that they see their aged family members. Then they will bury them round Christmas time. But, your state’s Republican Celebration is attempting to question you for having restrictions. What do you even say to that?

GOVERNOR GRETCHEN WHITMER (D-MI): what? This is what I say, COVID-19 would not care about your politics. COVID-19 doesn’t care concerning the legislature being on their searching break. Once we’re actually within the worst of the COVID outbreak since this started 9 months in the past. COVID-19 would not care if you wish to see your family members. It is an actual menace. And the nation’s governors are stepping in as a result of there’s been a vacuum on the federal stage. We’re doing the perfect we will to maintain the individuals of the state secure. I am grateful I’ve neighbors like Mike DeWine Ohio and J.B. Pritzker in Illinois. Now we have been attempting to work collectively. We put out a PSA in the present day the place we’re all concerned, together with Indiana and Wisconsin, Minnesota and Kentucky as effectively, to name on individuals to masks up and never journey this vacation. We’re following the science and that is the way you save lives. That’s the way you mitigate hurt to the financial system. That’s the way you get individuals again to work and preserve youngsters at school. However this rhetoric popping out of the Washington D.C. undermines the vital work we’re attempting to do on the entrance line. We’d like assets. We’d like help. We’d like leaders who’re correct with the medical data they dispense and cease the politics round this public well being disaster. It is killing individuals.

REID: Given the state of the Republican Celebration nationwide and within the state of Michigan, do you assume that will probably be even possible or how will Joe Biden implement packages to scale back the unfold to comprise this virus? How can he get that performed in a state like Michigan the place persons are prepared to brandish weapons since you requested them to put on a chunk of fabric over their face in Walmart. I do not perceive how Biden will get it performed within the state like Michigan. 

WHITMER: Pay attention, if anyone can get it performed it is Joe Biden. And I believe it’s vital to acknowledge the overwhelming majority of individuals in my state and possibly in states throughout the nation are doing the correct factor. They’re good people who find themselves attempting to make sense out of all the complicated and inaccurate data out of Washington D.C. They’re attempting to guard households. They need management on this. That is why Joe Biden gained so overwhelmingly and I believe that is why the nearer we get to the second he’s sworn in, I really feel — I’m feeling increasingly optimistic. I no he has a plan. I do know he listens to consultants and he can carry us collectively to struggle this widespread enemy the virus. We’re not each other’s enemy. This virus is and we’ve obtained to rise to the problem. 

REID: Properly, I am going to take this for myself. I gained’t put this on you, however sadly, we’ve to struggle the virus and a political get together that’s entrenched itself in standing 4 sq. towards democracy and towards combating a virus. They’ve taken the opposite facet by way of the conflict towards the virus. I do not get it. Keep secure. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Please keep our. I’m certain all of our viewers is rooting for you. Thanks very a lot.

A rustic the place individuals watch for hours and hours in meals traces with the road of vehicles ready for a field of meals in Fort Price, Texas, final Friday, extending three miles at one level because the pandemic and elevated unemployment has stretched People’ wallets to the breaking level. It is the nation the place probably the most highly effective man within the Senate, Mitch McConnell, is laser-focused on pushing by right-wing judges and nominees however in no nice hurry to go a invoice that will give People the reduction that they so desperately want proper now. In the meantime, the scenario is simply getting worse with COVID instances rising in each single state, hospitals filling up in locations like El Paso, Texas, having to resort to utilizing inmates to workers their overflow morgues [INTRODUCES JULIAN CASTRO] You tweeted, sir, thanks a lot for being right here, you tweeted lengthy meals traces in Texas whereas COVID spikes and nonetheless Greg Abbott of Texas, the governor there, refuses to spend a penny on the state’s wet day fund. As a substitute, he waits for federal and native leaders to return by. The wet day fund has run out and saying they will not use it till January. I do not perceive Republicans.

We’re locked in the home with the individuals who will not allow us to out and the home is on hearth. I imply, perhaps they do not care as a result of when you have a look at white unemployment, it is six p.c, if you have a look at black unemployment, it’s 10.Eight p.c, Latino unemployment is 8.Eight p.c, Asian American unemployment 7.6 p.c. Possibly they do not care as a result of it is not affecting them. You — simply — in a short time, what Mitch McConnell proposed no stimulus test, $300 per week in enhanced unemployment, no new assist to states. Just some small enterprise loans however they need all of those circumstances on them. Democrats have proposed a lot extra of their payments, together with the $1,200 stimulus test, $600 per week in enhanced unemployment, the $400 billion to state and native governments. If the Democrats do not win the Senate again, what do you assume goes to occur subsequent 12 months? 

JULIAN CASTRO: I believe there are going to be lots of people who’re evicted, who’re principally kicked to the curb.
