Chris Matthews: Tea Party Reminds Me Of Confederates In Civil War
RCP Video ^ | 8-2-2012

Posted on 08/03/2012 4:33:09 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

MSNBC's Chris Matthews implies the Tea Party is racist.

Chris Matthews: I think a lot of it is ethnic to it and I'm not trashing people as racist or anything, but I think a lot of it is ethnic. Meaning, they don't like the changing demographic of the United States. So every time --

Max Pappas, FreedomWorks: Yeah, especially Hispanics like Ted Cruz.

Matthews: No, no. He's a Cuban-American and that's always been a little different situation.

Pappas: Or Marco Rubio? Allen West?

Matthews: Every time a speech is written by a Tea Partier, they're not sufficiently happy with saying, 'we're going to cut spending.' They've got to say we're going to do something with the border. By the way, the border doesn't cross Cuba by the way, it's always Mexico.

Pappas: That's not a Tea Party position.

Matthews: Well why watch Cruz that statement?

Pappas: He's in Texas, they have a big border.

Matthews: All the time, you hear border, border, border.

Pappas: What brings the whole Tea Party together across the country is at the center of American politics. It's not extreme. It's let's only spend what we bring in. It's fiscal policy.

Matthews: You're saying Tea Partiers don't have an attitude about immigration?

Pappas: No.

Matthews: They don't?

Pappas: No. There is not a consistent Tea Party position on immigration.

Matthews: What do you mean there's not a consistent position? How come when you meet them, they talk about the 'cause'? It sounds like the Confederate Army still fighting the Civil War when you talk to them.

I don't think Chris Matthews has any idea what a real Tea party movement is and has been. But it is Far right, anything he doesn't agree is far right.

You mean the concerted effort since 1965 to replace the population, culture and ethnic makeup of the US?

Matthews is trying to create an image that doesn’t exist.

Btw: The Tea Party always reminds me of the Americans in the Revolutionary War. Fighting tyranny like Matthews supports.

Why isn’t Chris Matthews blogging in his undershorts in his grandmother’s basement? Who thinks you can make money broadcasting the random misfiring of neuron synapses in this individual’s cranium?

When has he ever had an insight?

When has he ever said anything clever?

When has he ever not sounded like a snotty half witted sophomore?

I suppose his fellow traveling sophomoric boomers think the dude is, like, righteous.

I’m glad he brought this up. Had wondered if there was a north verses south aspect to the Chick fill A standoff with mayors in the north condemning a successful business from the south. Was that part of the problem?

I can’t listen to that f*.

I try to, when videos are posted here in FR, but I just can’t do it.

It’s not exaggeration, or hyperbole, when he speaks I really do feel a sickness rising in my stomach and I have to turn it off.

He is one of the most hideous individuals who has ever lived. A complete and total waste of oxygen.

Same here. I also can’t listen to Ed Shultz. I can listen to Rachel Maddow. She’s very smart and not hysterical. Don’t agree with her often but do respect her opinion.

I also can’t listen to Obama. I honestly can feel my blood pressure rise any time he speaks. I yell “liar” and change the channel. LOL

I believe the Tea Party movement (and I include myself as a de facto member) does have a position on immigration, even if it is not “official”.

The position is that immigrants who come here legally and comply with the law as they work toward citizenship are welcomed with open arms.

Liberals have done a very proficient job of blurring the line between legal and illegal immigration and tarring anyone who is against the latter as a racist or xenophobe.

Not only does Chrissy Fit not understand the tea party, I doubt he would recognize an actual confederate if one came right up to him and said “How y’all doin’?” Talk about trying to sound learned but back firing big time.

Well, it may be hard to believe, but about 12 years (or so) ago, Pissy Chrissy was different. He was sane and his program pretty good. Something happened to him. I have no idea what. Anybody here know?

Amazing.

But, you can see that he’s under a “strong delusion”, and anything that doesn’t flow nicely through his worldview filter just doesn’t register.

Would you watch chrissy girl being butt slammed by a 6' 6" brotha in a philly drunk tank?

Harry Reid's hidden source told me that chrissy girl gets arrested so he can take it up the chute, and the philly police don't even book him.

When Harry Reid rats out this guy, so will I.

Chris Mathhews is a queer and is a fag bottom, so I've been told.

That's riiiiiiight, mofo, and this time WE have the manufacturing capacity. I personally can't wait to address the steady stream of insults and usurpations coming from your stupid pie-holes.

Picture a land with these greedy grasping parasites isolated to the East Coast, and the shore regions of California, and maybe a Midwestern enclave near Lake Michigan.

Picture Constitutional government restored with the right to vote properly restricted to (net)tax payers and people with some “skin in the game”.

Study the work of neuroscientist Dr James Olds and you'll come to understand just what makes Chrissy tick.Olds demonstrated that when a lab rat is given the opportunity to deliver to itself a pleasurable sensation (through brain stimulation) the rat will do so again,and again,and again to the point of exhaustion and even to the point of starvation.

Chrissy likes that thrill up his leg.He likes it over,and over,and over again.

Athough it's easy to suspect that that's the case with Chrissy it's not.Chrissy worked for Jimmy Carter and Tip O'Neil...two of the most loathsome individuals to ever breathe American air.

Chrissy's a true believer.

Why wouldn't America oppose the changing demographics in this country? We're importing a peasant population with no specialty trained job skills into a supposedly technologically advanced society—and someone on top of that who probably doesn't speak English.

Instead of bringing in engineers and programmers, we're bringing in another guy who can undercut our other unskilled workers when it comes to mowing the lawn or putting shingles on a roof.

Then the guy displaced from his job files for unemployment, and both he and the illegal immigrant apply for food stamps.

Oh, joy! What's not to love about those demographics?

The answer to all of this is so easily discernable that you have to think that those who oppose it have a sinister agenda.

Your 12 year statement is exactly right. Before Bush v Gore, he was reasonable. I think that prolonged election started his slide into irrationality. Between that 2000 election and the 2004 campaign, he completely lost it. By 2004 he was being challenged by Democrat Zell Miller to a duel as a result of his idiotic positions.
