MSNBC host Joy Reid has been branded an ‘idiot’ after criticizing the co-founder of Moms for Liberty for advocating the ban of a book featuring graphic sex from schools. The progressive anchor attacked Tiffany Justice over her ‘expertise’ in questioning the propriety of the memoir All Boys Aren’t Blue, a title that has been banned in 29 districts across the country.

‘What is the expertise that you have and other Moms for Liberty advocates have to decide that a book, an award-winning book … isn’t appropriate for students read,’ Reid said.

Justice shot back: ‘In what context is a strap-on dildo acceptable for public school, I mean that’s my question to you.’ Reid refused to answer that question, instead claiming Justice was unable to name the author George M. Johnson. Justice did, in fact, know the first name of the author. Johnson’s ‘memoir-manifesto’ includes a chapter which deals with sexual abuse he suffered as a child, including by a member of his own family. It features graphic descriptions of sex including lube, dildos and anal penetration.

Reid’s interview was seized upon by Megyn Kelly who posted on X: ‘This idiot actually wanted to know what “expertise” Tiffany Justice has to object to minors in school reading about strap-on dildos & incestual pedophilia.’

Reid told Justice during the interview: ‘What I am saying to you is you are not an expert in this book.’ Justice replied: ‘I don’t have to be an expert to know that dildos are not appropriate for public school, I mean come on let’s get real.’

Reid asked why shouldn’t a parent whose child might feel seen by this story have the right to let them read it. Justice countered with saying if a child feels seen by this story that means they have been a victim of a predator.

Reid then accused her of claiming to be an expert again and asked her for proof that a child had been raped. A central chapter of All Boys Aren’t Blue focuses on sexual abuse author Johnson experienced around age 13.

In September, Senator John Kennedy read a passage from the memoir during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. He quoted the book verbatim, telling the hearing: ‘I’d put some lube on and got him on his knees, and I began to slide into him from behind.

I pulled out of him and kissed him while he masturbated. He asked me to turn over while he slipped a condom on himself. ‘This was my a** and I was struggling to imagine someone inside me.

He got on top and slowly inserted himself into me. It was the worst pain I think I have ever felt in my life. Eventually, I felt a mix of pleasure with the pain.’ During the MSNBC interview, the two discussed an ‘opt-out form’ available in Broward County, Florida that allows parents to say their child cannot check out books from the library without their permission.

‘Maybe we can just put all the books with all the graphic sexual content, the dildos, the raping,’ Justice said. Reid said, ‘I’m so sorry, excuse me, excuse me, excuse me. I have seen tapes of what Moms For Liberty does, and you all go into school board meetings and you read graphic stuff.’ Justice said, ‘Joy, this is a disingenuous conversation.

America used to understand that there’s a thing called age-appropriate content.’ In June, Moms for Liberty was added to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s list of ‘hate and anti-government groups’ after it gained national media attention for its efforts to fight COVID safety measures in schools, book bans, limit discussion about race and LGBTQ identities and populate local school boards with conservatives.

The group’s other co-founder Bridget Ziegler has been facing calls to resign from the Sarasota school board after her husband Christian Ziegler was accused of raping a woman ‘who was part of their ménage-a-trois.’
