MSNBC's Reid Claims Republicans Running 'Racial Panic Election'

November 3rd, 2018 11:55 PM

Appearing as a guest on Saturday afternoon's MSNBC Live with Alex Witt, race-obsessed MSNBC AM Joy host Joy Reid proclaimed that Republicans are the ones running a "racial panic election" as she and host Witt discussed the Georgia gubernatorial election that has been marred by Democrats making false accusations of Republicans using "voter suppression" tactics to prevent minorities from voting.

At 12:17 p.m. Eastern, Reid began her commentary by referring to already debunked accusations of "voter suppression" against Georgia gubernatorial nominee and Secretary of State Brian Kemp as she charged that "he has been suppressing votes for a very long time" when in reality he has been doing his job as required by Georgia state law.

After recalling the growing number of minority voters in the state, she claimed that Kemp is "trying to engineer a whiter electorate."

She soon referred to a clip of former President Barack Obama campaigning in the state and commented that "it is literally like there are two different countries that are having elections in three days."

She continued: "The Republicans are running a very race-conscious, racial panic election," adding that "they're essentially looking at the white electorate and saying, 'Keep black and brown people out of power.' ... It says something about what they think of their own voters."
