How long till we find out Rachel wrote racist remarks ten years ago?

Probably on paper napkins found in a shoe box buried somewhere near MSNBC headquarters.

These smears are continuing, and we keep falling for them. First Franken. Now Joy. Next Rachel. No, I haven't forgotten about the others (eg. David Hogg makes a Nazi salute). These are nothing more than RW memes of the day meant to sow doubt and confusion and destroy our greatest liberal voices.

So Rachel....
Don't believe it will happen? Just wait a couple months.

If you don't see what is happening, if the series of events don't fit together like well worn pieces of a puzzle, it is time to wake up!

4. Never!

If not Rachel, it will be someone else. It's always about how a loud liberal voice has trespassed against a marginalized community. The people who start these memes don't give a damn about marginalized communities. They don't give a damn about whom they hurt.

26. Given people still refuse to believe Franken admitted he mistreated women

 

No, there's not likely to be an admission of being wrong.

There appears to be conflicting information on that.

20. That is how it works unfortunately.

With Hillary, if she owned 100 shares of an oil company, she was pro fracking head over heels, regardless of how she explained her planned policy. If she owned 100 shares of a wind farm company, she personally was responsible for murdering precious birds. That is how it works, take non controversial writings or comments, doctor them, then use the lies to stir up dissent. It is informative that the 2016 villains, Greenwald, Wikileaks and likely soon HA Goodman are behind the smear campaign, and like clockwork, those insisting that THEY are the purest progressives have fallen for the ruse and are spreading the lies.

25. Incorrect

 

She apologized and admitted that she wrote posts calling Charlie Crist gay which is homophobic. There are other posts that recently became public that she is claiming were the result of a hack. But she has absolutely apologized for previous homophobic comments.

27. Here's what she apologized for back in December...

From: http://www.newsweek.com/msnbcs-joy-reid-apologizes-decade-old-homophobic-blog-posts-about-charlie-729916

MSNBC host Joy Reid has apologized after several offensive blog posts she published between 2007 and 2009 resurfaced.

The AM Joy anchor published several stories on her now-defunct The Reid Report website that criticized former Florida governor Charlie Crist and accused him of being a closeted homosexual.

...

“Nonetheless, as someone who is not a member of the LGBT community, I regret the way I addressed the complex issue of the closet and speculation on a person’s sexual orientation with a mocking tone and sarcasm. It was insensitive, tone deaf and dumb. There is no excusing it—not based on the taste-skewing mores of talk radio or the then-blogosphere, and not based on my intentions.”

Just remember to expect the smears and recognize them for what they are!

17. Joy's crime is that she has taken on the socalled progressive left

(their description, not mine, I know what a true progressive is and it is not those people). We are witnessing the mode of the attacks on Hillary again, take information that has questional sources and has been taken through the rightwing Fever swamp and drag it into a progressive forum to attack a progressive that one disagrees with, classic 2016 personal destruction tactics.

And now the same green/independent purity police assholes are gonna take out another strong liberal PoC female democratic voice!!!

I have noticed a big ramp up of non Democratic Party voices on this board lately. They can’t wait any longer to destroy any and all opposition to a well known independent.

Yeah looks like the bad old days of being banned for supporting democratic candidates for prez on DU may be making a comeback.

21. I am afraid so.

I see it happening. What is sad is it should be crystal clear to everyone that we need unity and common purpose, but the usual suspects deride a call for unity and common purpose as the people calling for those things telling them, in their words, "to go along and shut up", what foolishness.

Soon it will be Lawrence's and then Rachel's turn.
MSNBC will gladly replace them with Republican never Trumpers. They will sound fantastic to some of us, but this will only last for a moment because once Trump is gone, they will simply be Republicans.

28. GMTA!

Excerpted from a post I wrote a few minutes ago elsewhere:

"Just be prepared, everyone. Rachel Maddow likes to vacation on Cape Cod, where we do a lot of whale watching. Some enterprising Republican blogger will surely find a video clip of Rachel, prior to some upcoming meal, commenting that she is "so hungry she could eat a whale." Suddenly, I promise you, there will be posts going viral claiming that Rachel Maddow is a secret fan of whale meat, and that she is on film supporting the cruel whaling expeditions of fleets from Japan, Iceland and Norway. Just wait for the calls on DU for her to resign from her show, and slink back in shame to the Berkshires, never to be heard from again."
