MSNBC’s Joy Reid would be the first person to accuse any Conservative of being homophobic. Like most people on the left, she believes only Liberals are capable of tolerance and compassion. Yet on a blog she used to maintain, she apparently wrote some anti-gay articles.
MSNBC Host Joy Reid Wrote Numerous Anti-Gay Articles on Her Old Blog
Recently resurfaced internet archives show political commentator Joy Reid wrote a dozen blog posts in 2007, 2008, and 2009 that contained homophobic conspiracies and anti-gay jokes.
The MSNBC weekend host ran a blog called The Reid Report — which is the same name as her now-defunct cable news show — a decade ago while she wrote for the Miami Herald. As first resurfaced by Twitter user Jamie_Maz, Reid wrote numerous bigoted blog posts smearing, mocking, and attacking former Florida governor Charlie Crist. These rants included calling Crist “Miss Charlie” and sarcastically using the tags “gay politicians” and “not gay politicians” — despite the fact that the twice-married, heterosexual man has never come-out as gay.
Reid went on to spread the crackpot conspiracy theory that Crist was actually a closeted gay man who refused to come out for fear that his sexual orientation would hurt his political career. Additionally, the AM Joy host claims Crist’s marriages to women are part of this elaborate cover up.
Reid has apparently responded to this:
Joy Reid apologizes for anti-gay comments toward Charlie Crist
“I deeply apologize to Congressman Crist, who was the target of my thoughtlessness. My critique of anti-LGBT positions he once held but has since abandoned was legitimate in my view. My means of critiquing were not.”

What do you think she would say if Sean Hannity was in her shoes?
