Eric Holder Gets Roasted For Defending Homophobe Joy Reid After Her Non-Apology For Past Anti-Gay Blog Posts

MSBNC crank Joy Reid claims her recently discovered anti-gay blog posts were fabricated by internet hackers.

Instead of admitting to what she wrote, she came up with an elaborate ‘hacking’ excuse; the FBI is even investigating the ‘hack.’

Where have we heard this before?

Mediaite obtained a series of homophobic posts from Joy Ann Reid’s old blog that she denies were actually written by her.

In an exclusive statement to Mediaite, the MSNBC host claims these posts from The Reid Report — which include defending homophobia, gay jokes, and the outright mocking of gay people and homosexuality — were somehow put in by an “external party” that “manipulated material from my now-defunct blog.”

While Reid apologized in December for writing homophobic content on a blog she ran long before her days as an icon of the #Resistance movement, she claims these new posts opposing gay marriage and cringing “at the sight of two men kissing” were part of a “fabricated” outside effort to paint her as “offensive and hateful.”

Joy Reid said hackers put the content on her website but a look back on The Wayback Machine shows the original text included the controversial anti-gay screed.

Now Joy Reid is changing her story claiming she “genuinely” doesn’t believe she wrote the blog posts and admits the blog wasn’t hacked.

The Hollywood Reporter:

While she didn’t take credit for the blog posts, she admitted that she’s written and tweeted hurtful, anti-gay things in the past, and pledged to do better. “I looked back on some of the ways I’ve talked casually about sexual gender and orientation and I wonder who that even was,” she said.

Reid continued: “I’m heartbroken that I didn’t do better back then. The reality is I have to own the things I’ve written and tweeted and said.”

So Joy Reid still isn’t taking full responsibility and Eric Holder has already come in to the rescue.

Former AG Eric Holder defended Joy Reid Saturday morning; the left ALWAYS protects their own.

Eric Holder tweeted: Joy Ann Reid apology. Appropriate. Heartfelt. This unique and compelling voice for tolerance and equality should not be silenced. We learn – and change – from our mistakes. She has.

All of a sudden the left believes in forgiveness. If Joy Reid was a conservative, the left would be calling for her head on a platter.

Eric Holder got roasted for his liberal hypocrisy. Joy Reid’s own fans are even disappointed in her lies and non-apology.
