On Monday, the oldest pro-Israel organization in the United States demanded that MSNBC’s Joy Reid be fired for her blatant anti-Semitism.
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) made the demand after multiple anti-Semitic comments and conspiracy theories from Reid’s past had surfaced on her now-defunct blog and web archive sites. In a statement, ZOA wrote:
The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has called upon the TV broadcasting network MSNBC to fire Joy Reid, host of ‘MSNBC’s AM Joy’ program, for uttering outrageous anti-Semitic comments and for espousing bizarre conspiracy theories. The ZOA is appalled that someone espousing her views and making the comments she has made on air has a paid slot on a major TV network and calls upon MSNBC to fire her forthwith.
Reid first came under fire last December when a Twitter account tracked down her old blog on a web archive and published screenshots of anti-gay remarks she made.
Reid later apologized for her remarks, calling them “insensitive, tone-deaf and dumb.”
Reid then hired a cyber security expert, who bragged about his affiliations with neo-Nazis, to prove that she was hacked — a claim that was quickly debunked and was even harshly criticized by left-wing news organizations.
