Two days ago, prominent black MSNBC commentator Joy Reid took to Twitter to accuse white National Review writer David French being “in favor of” a nuclear war “because,” she tweeted, “it will only kill Democrats and minorities.”
Here’s Reid’s tweet:
And the magazine in question is the once-august National Review. We have truly entered the age of insanity when the conservative argument in favor of risking nuclear war is, “don’t worry, it will only kill Democrats and minorities.” Shame on you, @DavidAFrenchhttps://t.co/YARwfhRNRE

Before that tweet, I had read French’s piece in National Review, and it never once even came close to saying what Reid’s tweet said. Not even close. Here’s a link to French’s essay.
Still, Joy Reid, prominent member of the media and the Race Grievance Industry (RGI), believed somehow — after reading that — that she could say the above-quoted passage for the whole world to see. How is something like that even possible?!?
For Reid’s tweet to be true, she would have to be able to read both French’s National Review essay and French’s mind, to know that when he spoke of reacting as effectively as possible to a disaster, he was somehow hoping for Democrats and minorities to die.
Two things are true #1: French’s essay never said anything that could even remotely be construed as what Reid said, and #2: Reid can’t read minds. So there has to be another explanation.
Well, since Reid can claim to read minds, I’m going to do likewise: Joy Reid has had the thoughts that she accused David French of having. Joy Reid has fantasized that white people would be killed in large numbers; that some disaster or other would come along and kill white people, but not “Democrats and minorities.”
Go ahead… call me paranoid. However… I have dealt — extensively! — with the RGI, and they have expressed those sentiments to me. Exactly those sentiments. In one of my exchanges with the RGI, one of the commenters with whom I was interacting overtly fantasized for what she called a “solar assassination” that would kill all white people on the planet.
Numerous times I challenged both the commenter and the owner of the blog (one “Brothawolf“) to disavow the comment; to say that it was over-the-top, heat of the moment stuff. Each time the blog owner refused to reject the comment, suggesting only that I “get over it.” (here)
That same Brothawolf has openly expressed on his blog how he thinks whenever there’s breaking news of some act of violence somewhere. He said he finds himself hoping fervently that it’ll turn out not to be a black man who has done the deed. He admitted that his first thoughts are not that he’s deeply saddened that it happened at all, or that he hopes as few people as possible were harmed, or that any injuries were minor, non-life-threatening ones… no, Brothawolf’s very first thoughts on hearing news of an act of violence somewhere are… that he hopes it wasn’t a black man who did it. Furthermore, he’s openly expressed the hope that it was a white man who did it!
In my interactions with the RGI, at their blogs, I’ve frequently heard it said that it would be a really good thing if all white people were somehow “eliminated.” In this post, we linked to a blog in which the commentator jeered at the death of young Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean monsters. The reason for her happiness? Warmbier was white, and had been tortured to death by “people of color.”
If you can stomach it, here’s a link to one such disgusting post in a chain of horrific posts, the likes of which are common coming from the Race Grievance Industry.
So, yes, the reason Joy Reid accused David French of harboring the desire to see “Democrats and minorities” killed in a nuclear war is that she herself hopes to see white people killed in massive numbers.
It follows then, that since she indulges in that grotesque fantasy, she assumes that everyone else has the same hideous, gruesome feelings as she has. In the world of psychology, it’s called: “projection.”
Guess what, Miss Reid: Other people, normal people, good people, in fact the vast majority of all people… don’t have such fantasies at all. Ever.
