MSNBC host Joy Reid is again embroiled in controversy with Twitter user @Jamie_Maz about several homophobic posts a decade or more old from her now defunct blog, the Reid Report. When @Jamie_Maz first called Reid out in December 2017, she apologized for certain posts that were mild on the hot sauce menu, but clearly embarrassing given Reid's current success as a first-rate, informed and articulate progressive TV personality.
This example of an alleged Joy Reid comment, tweeted by @Jamie_Maz gets to a fundamental argument between in the 2016 Democratic primary. While he is vague about when the statement was written, this opinion attributed to Reid remains an argument today, even though Democrats are chilled out and fully committed to gay rights, gay marriage, gays in the military and all other gay rights. Today the argument continues around purity test topics like abortion and gun control.
