Media Research Center was watching this week when MSNBC host Joy Reid described a “slow-rolling insurrection” that is happening across the country, at the state level, over gerrymandering and what she called the imaginary “boogeyman” of Critical Race Theory.
Reid handed off that observation to Malcolm Nance, who corrected her --- sort of --- about her stark warning.
“We are not in a slow-rolling insurrection. The insurrection has happened,” Nance told Reid’s shrinking MSNBC audience. “We are in the slow-rolling insurgency, and that is a series of insurrections, political actions, battling, and taking the fights off of the halls of power, moving them into the states, into the streets through populist movement, or through political or terrorist action, to create chaos for a government with the intent to seize power and never give it back.”
What in the world is he talking about? MRC analyst Curtis Houck, who documented the MSNBC segment for Newsbusters, says liberals such as Nance and MSNBC need the fear they are attempting to generate to stay relevant.
“Because COVID is increasingly not becoming an issue, and fewer and fewer people are scared by COVID,” he surmises, “they need a new boogeyman. They need a new thing for people to be scared to leave their houses because of.”
