It appears that even left-wing comedian Sarah Silverman has had it with radical MSNBC host Joy Reid’s incessant bullschiff.
In a stunning, unprecedented tweet posted Friday afternoon, the comedian chastised Reid for shamelessly spreading a conspiracy theory about Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Earlier that morning, CNN ran a story about the governor’s interest in establishing a state-controlled civilian military force to deal with emergencies and such matters.
This prompted terror and outrage from high-profile leftists on Twitter, including but certainly not limited to Reid, accusing the governor of trying to establish his own “secret police” because he’s a “totalitarian, fascist, authoritarian dictator.”
So… y’all know this is fascisty bananas, right…? https://t.co/Q6a7eotAws

WOW: GOP Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis wants to form a personal militia like the “political” leaders in Iraq have. It would be a militia that only answers to him. This is the beginning of a “Red Army” as the GOP prepares for war. Literally. https://t.co/cNsdymLtNz

He makes it harder to vote and stifles free speech. He threatens public schools and universities. He neuters local governments. He stacks the courts. Now he wants his own secret police funded by taxpayer dollars. https://t.co/eoRT1kl9PR

The list above is by no means comprehensive. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of similar tweets from blue check mark elites on Twitter.
Among the elites sharing this are NAACP members, other MSNBC contributors, former Clinton administration officials, former Democrat Florida governors, etc.
It seems like even more concrete proof that, unlike #Qanon, #BlueAnon isn’t comprised of random fringe lunatics — it’s made up of mainstream fringe lunatics.
Responding specifically to Reid, Silverman posted a tweet urging her to actually read the piece because, to CNN’s credit, it debunks this conspiracy theory.
Please read the article before you post this stuff you’re a news outlet. The truth has to matter

“States have the power to create defense forces separate from the national guard, though not all of them use it. If Florida moves ahead with DeSantis’ plan to reestablish the civilian force, it would become the 23rd active state guard in the country,” the piece explicitly notes.
“These guards are little-known auxiliary forces with origins dating back to the advent of state militias in the 18th century. While states and the Department of Defense share control of the National Guard, state guards are solely in the power of a governor.”
A number of Democrat states, including New York and California, already have their own active state guard. But for some reason, the notion of DeSantis establishing one for Florida is a sign of “fascism.”
As of Saturday morning, Reid had neither acknowledged her mistake nor deleted her tweet. Meanwhile, her sycophants were pummeling Silverman with criticism, alleging that her decision to prioritize the facts over conspiratorial narratives is “dangerous.”
Please consider the context of DeSantis proposing a militia that has been non-existent in Florida for over 70 years before you accuse a respected journalist of not telling the truth.

Why a militia now?

What is it exactly that you believe Joy didn’t read or is misunderstanding? Your reply is dismissive and dangerous. https://t.co/q6MDafI8Y8

Very dismissive and dangerous indeed. Telling a Harvard graduate to read with a mother that was a professor and a father that was an engineer. @SarahKSilverman needs to read about @JoyAnnReid. If you don’t know, now you know.

Since you’re so quick to assume she didn’t read it, why don’t you bless us with your expertise on the matter, Ms. Comedienne?

Take your own advice please. The truth does matter and @JoyAnnReid did an excellent job telling it. @GovRonDeSantis is a radical, fascist anti-Democracy autocratic wannabe. Appears he thinks he can overthrow the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

This aversion to truth is a hallmark of the #BlueAnon cult.
This is the same cult that still believes that former President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to affect the outcome of the 2016 election, and still believe that Republicans designed the CPAC 2021 stage to resemble a swastika.
To them, narrative always comes first, and that narrative is that all Republicans are fascists who hate science, hate minorities, hate democracy and hate “truth.”
Their “truth,” that is. When it comes to the actual truth, it seems that members of #BlueAnon are the real haters …
