MSNBC’s Joy Reid has attacked Thanksgiving by calling it a “simplistic fairytale” based on a lie Republicans rely on to cover up that America is based on “genocide.”

The host opened the Wednesday edition of the ReidOut by attacking the holiday and its traditions as millions of Americans prepare for festivities.

Reid said Thanksgiving is a day of cherished tradition for millions of Americans, but that the celebration was actually based on a series of “historical inaccuracies.”

“It’s based on this myth that the native people welcomed their settlers with open arms and ears of corn,” Reid said.

‘A simplistic fairytale interpretation of a 1621 meeting between native tribes and English settlers that erases the ensuing genocide.

“It’s the truth that Republicans want to be banned from our textbooks.”

She goes on to say that Republicans are “desperate” to keep this a secret because America is, in fact, a country “based on violence.”

“Our birth was violent, in 1619 a ship carrying more than 20 enslaved Africans landed in Virginia and ushered in two centuries of American slavery that left millions chained or dead,” she said.

“When those enslaved people were finally free, a terrorist organization that was a map-carrying member of polite society picked up the Ku Klux Klan where the Civil War ended.

Reid goes on to say that “the Klan and its ilk use violence to maintain white supremacy” remain active in the United States.

“As Americans, we continue to choose violence, we are a country that chooses violence over and over again. There is no facet of American society that remains unaffected by it,” she said.

While some supported her views, praising the progressive host for her “truth,” others disapproved of Reid’s comments.

While some supported her views and praised the Progressive host for her “telling the truth,” others took issue with Reid’s comments expressing her “hate” for the United States.

Mark Reed Levin, an American lawyer, author, and radio personality who hosts the syndicated radio program The Mark Levin Show tweeted, “Fuck your business whoever hates our wonderful country knows no bounds.”

President of News Cycle Media and Breaking News Editor at DC Examiner Jon Nicosia called Reid “American-hating” and tweeted, “America-hating, talentless homophobe with bad hair.”

Others questioned Reid’s analysis, asking if Americans could “enjoy anything”: “Should we not enjoy anything?”

One twitter user said, ‘Joy is nothing if she can’t race with ace. Sad’

Another said, “Your racist venom hinders your ability to distinguish between your rhetoric and reality. Get help!’

In March, Reid faced backlash for on-air comments criticizing media coverage of the conflict in Ukraine, a topic she says is elevated above wars involving “brown and black” people around the world to be.

Reid argued that Americans only care about the war because Ukrainians are “white and mostly Christian.”
