Skip to comments.Chris Matthews: Tea Party Reminds Me Of Confederates In Civil War
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?
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.

We are rising, and winning.
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.
That’s OK Chris, this yankee happens to consider that a compliment.
REMEMBER THE CHIK FIL A!!!
Little queer Matthews hates himself because he’s rich and White.
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.
Suits me. The more he’s blind-sided on Election Night, the sweeter the victory will be.
I wonder if he can get a Tan?
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?
That’s funny, the American Democratic Party reminds me of the Russian Bolshevik’s in 1917.
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.
The Confederacy was an economic system based on slave labor.
Run by DEMOCRATS.
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
Exactly. Just posted the same thing on Twitter.
Ahh’d like kick that thar tingle in his leg and then run his prissy ass across the border to where he belongs.
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.
...like Ted Cruz...Or Marco Rubio? Allen West?
LOL! Chrissy, totally destroy by three simple names. But Wait! He has a whole pocket full of race cards to play.
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.
I think Chrissie confused ethics with ethnics.
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?
Chris is not the fool he seems to be. He knows there are a lot of stupid democrats that like his kind of talk and he will get ratings.
Didn’t he guest host for Rush once or twice?
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.
we Tea Party Ilk would have loved to have Herman Cain for a candidate(until the Regime’s minions in the MSM poisoned the well)....
..it is NOT RACISM it is ANTI MARXISM
My take is being in Washington D.C. too long tends to shred brains and morals; he is simply not of right mind. Many have succumbed to this condition.
Chrisy boy, you got that all wrong.
The south was PRO slavery. The north was agains’t it.
Now compare Obummers plan....... make slaves out of both sides.
He’s become drunk on celebrity and self indulgence, would be my guess.
That tingle up his leg got lodged in his brain.
Nope, just the white people.
All of his policies have transferred wealth from those he hates to those he feels it "rightly" belongs to.
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.
Nor does have any idea what started the Civil War.
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”.
If only 1% of Americans were historically and Constitutionally aware enough to see that “Confederate” minded Americans have, since Appomatox, been precisely what America needs most.
Chrissy likes that thrill up his leg.He likes it over,and over,and over again.
MSNBC turned hard left and he either went along are was gone.....a true journalist would have resigned...we all know the direction he took!!!
Just think...all that $$$ and his only responsibility is to entertain 50 people a night,five nights a week.
Their ratings and his are in the toilet!!
I wonder if “tingle” knows that the confederates represented democrap party interests?
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.
“The Confederacy was an economic system based on slave labor.
Run by DEMOCRATS.”
The present ‘Rats want the entire country on a Plantation run outta 1600 Pennsylvania Ave!!!
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.
2 era's same mission.
The terror and the tingle?
Why did you post that pic of Dead Fish Rhambo?
You liberals are the ones fighting AGAINST AMERICA AND THE CONSTITUTION!
YOU are the ones fighting to maintain Illegal Immigration, which creates SLAVE WAGES for LEGAL immigrants, and millions of Americans!
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.
