A fresh batch of derogatory blogs have been unearthed carrying Joy Reid's byline before she became an MSNBC star — including gay-baiting jokes about Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a reference to an inflammatory quote about Muslims, and a fat-shaming blast at actress Rosie O'Donnell, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
In several 2006 blog posts, Reid suggested Hatch wanted to fellate then-Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito.
Hatch sarcastically tweeted, "Oh."
Another of the targets of Reid's gay-baiting was her current MSNBC co-host Chris Matthews, the Free Beacon reported.
"Chris Matthews will declare the speech a masterpiece and in a surprise move, will kiss Rudy Giuliani full on the lips," she predicted before President George W. Bush's 2006 State of the Union.
Other blog posts tout offensive stereotypes of Muslims, claim Islam is inherently unable to coexist with Western democratic values, and link to the far-right Gateway Pundit, the Free Beacon reported.
One post on Reid's blog states "current iterations of Islam are largely incompatible with Western notions of free speech and expression, and thus, I'd say, with the Bushian dream of Western style democracy for all."
Meanwhile, a Jan. 9, 2007 blog post attacked O'Donnell using misogynistic and fat-shaming language and defended future president Donald Trump, the Free Beacon reported.
"How much longer until that chubbed-out shrew Rosie O'Donnell gets her fat ass canned by Babwa?" Reid asked, in an imitation of "The View" co-host Barbara Walters' first name, the Free Beacon reported.
"How much longer will the freak show that is 'The View' continue to darken our television screens?" she continued. "How much more kick-ass funny can Donald Trump be???"
O'Donnell cryptically responded on Twitter on Thursday, linking to the Free Beacon story under the hashtag hmmmmmmmmmmm.
The latest reporting on the old posts fans the flames of controversy surrounding Reid's defunct blog.
Last December, she apologized for some of the old posts that had surfaced. She has refuted posts reported by Mediaite, claiming she had been hacked — though experts cast doubt on that.
