I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we bless Joy Reid, but we ask that You replace her and all the other partisan hosts at MSNBC with wise, knowledgeable voices who can report the news and guide our nation into truth, not falsehood.

With CNN’s recent scandals and removals, a media cleansing may be underway. Let’s ask the Lord to reform our media in America because we all know we need it.

From Fox News. Joy Reid’s MSNBC colleagues are silent as she continues her pattern of controversial and often bizarre or hateful remarks on the liberal network….

Reid often uses her platform to share controversial thoughts and opinions on hot-button news stories. As a result, she is frequently mocked and criticized by conservatives for her outlandish remarks, but her MSNBC colleagues don’t appear bothered….

Some of the tweets that Reid’s colleagues didn’t comment on include: her claim that Republicans are a “pro-rape” and “pro-child marriage party,” a tweet suggesting anyone from the GOP going against Ketanji Brown Jackson is on the “Dixiecrat side of history,” an assertion that “Republicans vote like al Qaeda fights: with a patient, long-term goal of seizing power and forcing the libertine culture to heel under the boot; no matter how many elections it takes,” her theory that Kyle Rittenhouse and Justice Brett Kavanaugh benefited from “male White tears” and a belief that “people on the right would trade all the tax cuts for the ability to openly say the n-word….”

During the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, Reid said that the teen’s acquittal had a historic precedent and was rooted in the days of “slave catchers.”

“This country was built on the idea that White men had a particular kind of freedom and a particular kind of citizenship that only they have that gives, you know, from the slave catchers on, the right to inflict violence In the name of protecting property. That’s like the foundational creation of the United States,” Reid said after Rittenhouse was acquitted.

Moments later on the show, Reid added that the verdict may give people an “excuse” to attack Black Lives Matter protestors and said supporters of the group should be “very afraid tonight.”

Reid has a pattern of making comparisons between modern-day-events and slavery.

While interviewing two of the Texas Democrats who had left the state on a private jet in order to deny a quorum and prevent a state elections bill, Reid asked State Rep. Chris Turner if he was worried about being arrested under the Fugitive Slave Act.

“I have to talk to you about this threat to have you all arrested when you return to Texas and supposedly to track you down like the Fugitive Slave Act is still in force now,” Reid asked. “What do you make of that, those threats?”

Her show’s segments often focus on bashing the Republican Party, especially Donald Trump. On two separate occasions, Reid compared the GOP and Trump to Muslim religious extremists….

Months later, she said Republicans were enacting “hyper right wing” and “evangelical” rule over the American people, which she claimed was a form of “Talibanism.”

The MSNBC host also has formed a habit of attacking prominent Black Republicans, using racialized language.

One instance was when she called Justice Thomas “Uncle Clarence,” a reference to “Uncle Tom, a derogatory term meant to describe a Black person who is overly loyal to White people….

While MSNBC didn’t offer a condemnation of Reid’s comments, she was lambasted on social media, and also drew a response from Republican leadership and Sen. Scott. The liberal network also tolerated comments from MSNBC host Tiffany Cross who disparaged Scott when she called him a “token” Republican and a “clown….”

Father, I pray you would end Joy Reid’s platform to shout her hatred and bitterness. May MSNBC decide that her words sow division and hatred and remove her platform. But I pray for more: melt her heart of bitterness and hatred. Show her she is a sinner and in need of a savior. Give her a heart to hear your voice of love.

We bless her because the Word says to bless our enemies and pray for those who despitefully use us. Lord, we ask You to give this woman dreams, visions and revelations of Jesus that she might be saved and delivered from hatred. Please give us honest news reports and
not propaganda and vitriol in Jesus name. sandy

Why should we bless this woman?? Instead we should just pray for the spirit of our God to convict her and hopefully soften her heart to receive Jesus. If that’s not possible, we should openly pray that she would be removed from her position of impact
