Joy Reid, the host of MSNBC’s “ReidOut” walked headfirst into controversy Monday when she suggested that President Trump radicalized his supporters in the same way “Muslims act.”

Per Fox News:

“We in the U.S. media describe that as they are radicalizing those people — particularly when they’re radicalizing young people. That’s how we talk about the way Muslims act. When you see what Donald Trump is doing, is that any different from what we describe as radicalizing people?”

Her comments came in response to President Trump retweeting a video of a pro-Trump caravan which included a man who shot paintballs at protesters.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib quickly chimed in, echoing Omar’s concerns.

Reid did not mention the issue on her show Tuesday night, which prompted criticism from the civil rights organization Muslim Advocates.

“She spent much of the show discussing racism, however Reid failed to acknowledge the harm she caused, did not apologize for stereotyping Muslims as violent radicals and failed to address her history of anti-Muslim comments …” the group said in a statement. “By refusing to apologize and disavow her anti-Muslim comments, Reid is continuing to put Muslims in danger.

Other journalists and activists who typically find themselves aligned with Reid expressed outrage on Twitter.

Good to see these meatheads turn on each other! Too bad Omar and Tliab don’t jump to defend America that quickly!

They are stark raving mad. Trump is not radicalizing anybody in any way.
Islam is, by its own words!, a murderous, terrorizing, jew-hating, gay-killing, women-stoning,totalitarian ideology.
How can any muslim demand an apology for stating their own owrds?
Muslims can be muslims but they have no call for acting offended. It’s just part of their strategy to gain power.
