The Republican Party was actually built on the abolition of slavery but we can’t expect facts from far left MSNBC hosts. Joy Reid recently claimed that the GOP was built on victimhood and resentment but that’s a description which better describes today’s Democratic Party.
Last night, this was discussed on The Five. From the FOX News Insider:
MSNBC Host Joy Reid: Republican Party Is Built on ‘Victimhood,’ ‘Resentment’
MSNBC’s Joy Reid said on Thursday that President Donald Trump can make Republicans “literally accept anything.”
Appearing as a guest on “All In With Chris Hayes,” Reid explained that Trump saw trends in the GOP and took advantage of it.
“This is a Republican Party that’s been built on resentment and a sense of victimhood, a sense of persecution – almost a persecution complex – for more than 40 years, almost 50 years, going back to the dawn of the civil rights movement when they felt persecuted by the world,” Reid said.
She said that Trump “gets that” and “gets them,” and that’s why he can make Republicans “literally accept anything.”
“And not only will the voters, so will the elected officials,” Reid continued. “He’s cowed senators, members of Congress. He has cowed the officialdom of the Republican Party. He’s cowed the Speaker of the House.”
