ReidOut Guest: GOP Is ‘Cocktail’ of ‘Fascism’ and ‘White Supremacy’

Friday’s ReidOut served up another dose of nonsensical conspiracy theories as MSNBC host Joy Reid and frequent cable news hack Dean Obeidallah grossly speculated about a hypothetical retirement of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as a chance to move Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron (R) into the Senate and accused every single person who works in and votes for the Republican Party as nothing more than a “dangerous cocktail” of “white supremacy,” “fascism,” and “lies.”

The race-baiting Reid first felt the need to diverge on a rant blasting Cameron, who — despite sharing the same skin color, has different political beliefs and is, therefore, her enemy — for his decision in the fall to not directly charge the officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

Asked by Reid why McConnell even ran for reelection, Obeidallah responded McConnell may very well be retiring because he doesn’t align with the Republican Party anymore. According to Obeidallah, McConnell, as well as Gosar, “dabbled” in white supremacy:

“The GOP is Trump’s party. And look at it, we had 261 Republicans in the House and Senate combined, 17 voted to hold Trump accountable. Even McConnell didn’t, but he made that speech afterwards. The GOP is not the party he is a part of. So maybe he really feels like it’s time to move on. You know, he dabbled — he was partly dabbling in white supremacy. Now you’ve got Paul Gosar going to white supremacist events. And there’s no backlash. The GOP is a mix of white supremacism and fascism and dangerous lies and hypocrisy. It’s a dangerous cocktail—that’s the GOP. Maybe — maybe he’s actually had enough.”

Reid offered no pushback, whatsoever. Instead, she acceded with Obeidallah’s assessment and couldn’t comprehend why people “get really mad” when people like her and Obeidallah make absurd statements like that: 

“I mean, people get really mad when people like you and people like me say that, but prove us wrong. If you’re not the party of white supremacy, then why do you keep letting them in and letting them have a platform including Donald Trump? You have to explain to us how that is not true.”

So much for the presumption of innocence. It’s important to note that when such a claim is leveled on the other side, the left-wing media cry foul.

Obeidallah and Reid also contended that AFPAC, organized by Nick Fuentes, was a “white nationalist” event, despite having an array of black, Asian, and Hispanic attendees and speakers.

Obeidallah interjected and attempted to analogize Republican voters to the terrorists that committed the attack on September 11, 2001, Obeidallah asserted all Republicans are white supremacists who are “complicit in the budding fascist movement.”

JOY REID: You know, I think about, also, Dean, you know Mitch McConnell, who fought to be re-elected only to now to start floating retirement. But he can’t just retire like a regular person would. Because this is what Republicans do, it’s like I need the stage legislature to strip power from the Democratic governor—and strip power from the governor just because the governor is a Democrat—and give the power to the Republican legislature so he can put his hand-picked person in—probably the same state attorney general who essentially let a bunch of cops off for busting in and shooting a woman in her bed. They’re like, that guy let them off and tricked the grand jury and lied to them, that’s the guy he wants to place in power. Even the way – it’s like, what did you come back, then, for? Just so that you can choose your own successor. That’s what that looks like. 

DEAN OBEIDALLAH [RADIO SHOW HOST]: It’s possible. I think Mitch McConnell is immortal; he will be there forever. He’s never leaving the Senate. He looks like—he’s like a vampire. I mean—I don’t know— I read the reports. Is he really thinking of leaving? I can’t tell. Is it a game? I am not sure. He must sense, though, he doesn’t not represent the GOP any longer. The wing of the GOP that he’s in? That lane? Gone. The GOP is Trump’s party. And look at it, we had 261 Republicans in the House and Senate combined, 17 voted to hold Trump accountable. Even McConnell didn’t, but he made that speech afterwards. The GOP is not the party he is a part of. So maybe he really feels like it’s time to move on. You know, he dabbled — he was partly dabbling in white supremacy. Now you’ve got Paul Gosar going to white supremacist events. And there’s no backlash. The GOP is a mix of white supremacism and fascism and dangerous lies and hypocrisy. It’s a dangerous cocktail—that’s the GOP. Maybe — maybe he’s actually had enough. 

REID: I mean, people get really mad when people like you and people like me say that, but prove us wrong. If you’re not the party of white supremacy, then why do you keep letting them in and letting them have a platform including Donald Trump? You have to explain to us how that is not true. You know I have to ask you, Susan— 

OBEIDALLAH: Can I just —

REID: Yeah, sure.

OBEIDALLAH: — no, just one more quick thing. As a Muslim, these Republicans demanded every Muslim denounce any bad act by any Muslim, anywhere. Because they told us, if we didn’t, we’re complicit. That’s how they think. They are now silent in the face of Paul Gosar going to a white national event. They are silent as people like the Proud Boys and QAnon are building a paramilitary group. We have to—based on their own track record—assume they want the support. They are complicit in bigotry. They are complicit in the budding fascist movement that is replacing the GOP. I’m not being hyperbolic. We’re warning people, this is what we’re seeing. Study history. Look at the History Channel. It’s scary stuff.

REID: It is very scary.
