The MSNBC host Joy Reid went full racist this week when she compared the “white male tears” of teenager Kyle Rittenhouse to those of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“It reminded a lot of people of something … oh, the Brett Kavanaugh hearing,” Reid said of the video from last week in which Rittenhouse broke down on the stand during his murder trial. She added that Kavanaugh “cried his way through the hearings” as he looked to become a “permanent member and associate justice of the Supreme Court.”
“And his [Kavanaugh’s] tears turned out to be more powerful than the tears of Christine Blasey Ford [his accuser],” Reid continued. “But in America, there’s a thing about both white vigilantism and white tears, particularly male white tears. Really white tears in general, because that’s what Karens are, right? They can Karen out, and then as soon as they get caught, bring waterworks.”
“White men can get away with that too,” she added. “Because it has the same effect.”
Before being appointed by Donald Trump, Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged that he was inappropriate with her in high school. Though she offered virtually no evidence to back this up, the leftist media swiftly took her side and portrayed Kavanaugh as a sexual predator.
“Over the past few days, other false and uncorroborated accusations have been aired. There has been a frenzy to come up with something — anything, no matter how far-fetched or odious — that will block a vote on my nomination,” Kavanaugh said at the time, according to The Hill . “The consequences extend beyond any one nomination. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination — if allowed to succeed — will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from serving our country.”
Rittenhouse is on trial for several charges related to shooting and killing two people in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during the Black Lives Matter riots last year. Last week, he broke down while testifying about the shootings.
“There were three people right there,” Rittenhouse said, sobbing as he recalled being chased by one of them.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” he later added after the judge gave him a recess to collect himself. “I defended myself.”
NBA star LeBron James was quick to accuse Rittenhouse of faking his tears.
“What tears?????” James tweeted. “I didn’t see one. Man, knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”
