Patteeu Memorial Political Forum>Joy Reid Claims Newly Discovered Homophobic Posts From Her Blog Were ‘Fabricated’
Taco John 10:22 AM 04-23-2018
Mediaite has 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.”

These anti-gay articles from The Reid Report, a site that pre-dated Reid’s former MSNBC show of the same name, were originally shared on Twitter by user Jamie_Maz who found them using the Wayback Machine — an Internet archiving service that takes periodic screenshots of popular web pages to preserve them.

While the amateur sleuth provided Mediaite with legitimate links to all of the posts they tweeted screenshots of, neither the actual defunct site nor its archived pages are currently accessible, as their Wayback Machine links mysteriously disappeared in December after Mediaite‘s initial story on Reid’s homophobic comments about Florida Congressman Charlie Crist was published. The Wayback Machine did not respond to an inquiry regarding the removal of Reid’s blog.

Reid’s statement to Mediaite claims that these allegedly hacked posts do “not represent the original entries” on her site:
“In December I learned that an unknown, external party accessed and manipulated material from my now-defunct blog, The Reid Report, to include offensive and hateful references that are fabricated and run counter to my personal beliefs and ideology.

I began working with a cyber-security expert who first identified the unauthorized activity, and we notified federal law enforcement officials of the breach. The manipulated material seems to be part of an effort to taint my character with false information by distorting a blog that ended a decade ago.

Now that the site has been compromised I can state unequivocally that it does not represent the original entries. I hope that whoever corrupted the site recognizes the pain they have caused, not just to me, but to my family and communities that I care deeply about: LGBTQ, immigrants, people of color and other marginalized groups.”
It is worth noting, however, that Reid does admit these posts came from her blog — rather than alleging they are doctored images posted to Twitter — with the caveat that they were added by nefarious hackers after she had the site shut down. It’s unclear when the nefarious hackers would have hacked her site and added the controversial content, since it has been defunct for years and still is. More importantly, NBC could or would not specify exactly which posts Reid is claiming were doctored.

In one of these newly found Reid Report articles, the author defends former NBA star Tim Hardaway’s aggressively anti-gay comments by saying “most straight people cringe at the sight of two men kissing”:
“Keeping it real … most straight men feel exactly the same way, and would have the exact same reaction to the idea of stripping naked in a sweaty locker room in close quarters with a gay teammate. Most straight people cringe at the sight of two men kissing… Most straight people had a hard time being convinced to watch ‘Broke Back Mountain.’ (I admit that I couldn’t go see the movie either, despite my sister’s ringing endorsement, because I didn’t want to watch the two male characters having sex.) Does that make me homophobic? Probably.”
The author continued by saying a part of “straightness” is viewing “homosexual sex” as “gross,” but added that “the nature of political correctness” means straight people can’t say that publicly like Hardaway did.

I try to avoid the word homophobic, because it's not a phobia and I think equating phobias and bigotry is immoral. If it's a phobia (and it is not), it's not a form of bigotry or prejudice.

It's either an uncontrollable fear or a willful prejudice. It can't be both.
Are you talking about the expressed disgust of homosexual acts as voiced by Tim Hardaway in the post above or something more esoteric?

If it's the expressed disgust that fits into neither of the categories you mention. It's simply an honest and natural response.

When we reviewed the archives, we found nothing to indicate tampering or hacking of the Wayback Machine versions. At least some of the examples of allegedly fraudulent posts provided to us had been archived at different dates and by different entities.

We let Reid’s lawyers know that the information provided was not sufficient for us to verify claims of manipulation.

There's a huge difference between not liking something gay and hating everything gay.

I think everyone should bathe. I don't want to watch everyone bathe. I don't need to see it. Do what you do, be you. If you like it and it makes you happy then do it.

I don't have to agree or like it as well, and the idea that someone else feels slighted because I don't probably means they have some of their own issues to deal with...

Bathing, like gay, is gross and degenerate, but everyone who bathes will insist it's clean and natural, like gays do.

Take a shower, you heathen.

I'm a gross degenerate. That said I don't feel slighted because you don't want to watch me be a gross degenerate.

In fact it would probably throw off my swing...

Yep. But that simple truth, that gay acts can be found repugnant without any underlying prejudice, does not fit the agenda of the queer community or it's champions.

I wouldn't say it was esoteric (I was speaking generally, which is pretty much the opposite), but I certainly veered off-course.

I didn't mean to mischaracterize your words; just wasn't sure where you were coming from.

Apparently Joy was firmly in Camp Trump during his initial spat with Rosie O'Donnell. This shit is pretty funny. :-)

Narrative is evolving. Genuinely doesn't believe that she authored the posts, but the evidence against hacking is credible.
