On Wednesday (before inexorably bashing Senator Joe Manchin), MSNBC’s police-loathing Joy Reid uttered one of the most illogical claims ever made on live television. During a segment, which was supposed to be focused on the purported increase in hate crimes against Asian Americans, Reid contended that a greater police presence causes more violence and more crime.
To discuss the alleged increase in violence against Asian American, Reid invited on Medium’s Michelle Kim. Once again, Reid denounced former President Trump as a racist and a xenophobe for—accurately—referring to COVID-19 as the China Virus, since it originated in Wuhan, China. Without evidence, Reid and Kim blamed the language and characterization of the virus used by the previous administration to explain the recent incidents of Asian victimization.
