Ah, more of that liberal civility on display!
On Sunday’s edition of MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” host Joy Reid hosted a panel that expressed hope for the death of older Fox News Channel viewers and claimed that observing the high crime rate in Chicago is somehow code for racism.
According to Joy Reid, those who support the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms have “an old kind of crusty, creepy, worldview.”

The MSNBC host also fretted over the tendency of Republicans to bring up the high homicide rate in Chicago during discussions of gun control, with panel member Tiffany Cross of The Beat D.C. suggesting racism as she called “Chicago” a “euphemism for black.”
Reid turned to Cross and complained: “Every time you try to bring up the issue of mass shootings and preventing them, you get the reflexive ‘Chicago.’” After the AM Joy host complained that the guns used in the Parkland school shootings were “perfectly legally purchased,” Cross began her response: “I think with the Republican Party Chicago is their euphemism or subtext for ‘black,’ and we should just call that out for what it is.”
