Constructing on what we saw last week within the left’s hatred for minorities who refuse to be pigeon-holed, Tuesday’s ReidOut added trans individuals 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 particular person” who “doesn’t signify the trans neighborhood.”
And worse but, she subscribes to a Republican Celebration 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 whole present has existed to prime viewers to hate these on the other facet the of spectrum and rage about how they’re responsible 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 planet that the suitable is crammed with racists who stay in worry of Black individuals and their existence is derived from idiocy (click on “broaden”):
The Republican Celebration seems to be rather a lot 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 occasion motion enraged over healthcare and by healthcare — and by healthcare, I imply, a black president. Quick ahead to now, ObamaCare stays however the tea occasion, in lots of respects, acquired 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 each day on the Home ground or in commentaries by Tuckums and his pals at Fox Information as a result of retaining their base indignant is much extra vital than really governing, even when the boogeyman is actually a toddler. 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 sort. However as an alternative of crimson meat or plastic potatoes, this battle has actual penalties. Transgender women, who already really feel unsafe in colleges, are actually going through an onslaught of state laws concentrating on them from taking part in sports activities and the justification for kicking these children off the crew? Caitlyn Jenner sums it up.
Reid then performed a clip of Jenner saying that, regardless of being a trans girl, “now we have to guard women sports activities” as a result of organic males competing in ladies’s sports activities “simply isn’t honest.”
As a substitute of contemplating this opposite view, Reid went into one other condescending match over how the California Republican “doesn’t communicate for the trans neighborhood.”
Reid’s proof? Effectively, Jenner can’t be an sufficient 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 women sports activities, identical 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 dwelling 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 Undertaking, Reid lamented to Clymer that “the trans children assaults type of nearly reduce towards this want for Individuals to really feel heroic” and good about themselves.
Going off the identical cue playing cards, Clymer stated that it was proof that the GOP “has run out of concepts” after Donald Trump killed a half million individuals with the coronavirus and as an alternative would go after trans children “as a result of most Individuals do not know rather a lot about trans individuals and trans well being care, in order that they’re simply — they’re bullying younger trans children.”
Clymer additionally made certain to play the race card, stating the GOP was racist and transphobic by at all times “displaying footage of younger, black trans ladies in highschool subsequent to younger, white women, cis white women.”
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.
Primarily based on Clymer’s use of the labels “hypocrite,” “hateful,” and “Phyllis Schlafly of the trans neighborhood,” 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 already know, a instantly anti-trans President. And now, she is working for governor and has now determined she too is towards trans women enjoying sports activities.
CLYMER: That’s proper.
REID: I do not perceive it. Inside the neighborhood, what are individuals saying and serious about this?
CLYMER: Hear, each marginalized neighborhood has members that work towards the equality of that neighborhood. It is — you already know, each neighborhood has that. For trans people, Caitlyn Jenner is the Phyllis Schlafly of the trans neighborhood. 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 kids below the bus and instantly assault trans kids in that interview, we weren’t stunned. That is who she is. And by the way in which, she’s a hypocrite. Simply final 12 months, she advised trans journalist Don Innes [sic] on her podcast that she had downside with trans children enjoying on groups that align with their gender identification. Caitlyn Jenner has performed in ladies’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 that has no downside attacking trans individuals to construct her model.
Clearly impressed, Reid wrapped the present with this reply: “Very properly stated.”
