From Chris Matthews, the Liberal most obsessed with the color of Barack Obama's skin, NewsBusters has caught the latest absurd claim of racism:
Robinson sets the racial tone by saying (h/t The Right Newz):
"It's all part of this Barack Obama as 'other' sort of blanket campaign that has been waged by the Republican Party for some time now. It may be gaining some traction now, though I wonder why now as opposed to a bit closer to election."Matthews then demonstrates his mind-numbing ability to take an idiotic statement, amplify it, and subsequently make it exponentially more idiotic coming from his mouth, when he said this:
"Yea, well let me ask you about that gentleman. What about now, is this constant barrage of assaults, saying the guy is basically playing an old game of demagoguery politics, where you take the money from the worker bees and give it to the poor people to buy votes. That's basically what they're charging him with. Old big-style, big-city machine of 50 years ago."He added, "They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed? They keep saying Chicago. That's another thing that sends that message - this guy's helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the 'burbs."
Hielemann helpfully interpreted Matthews statement, presumably for those too challenged to understand basic words (or as we in the business refer to them - Hardball viewers), by making this jaw-dropping statement:
"There's a lot of black people in Chicago."Yes, because referring to the city of Chicago would have nothing to do with trying to link the President to a long, storied history of corruption. It simply has to be in reference to all of the black people living there.
By the way, Mr. Hielemann, there are a lot of black people in Chicago. Guess what, though? There are even more white people.
According to the Census Bureau in 2010, the percentage of African-Americans in the city of Chicago was roughly 32.9%. The percentage of whites? 45.0%.
Read the rest, NewsBusters has the video up and examples of MSNBC, which hosts the race obsessed Matthews and company, linking corruption with Chicago themselves!
JWF, in reaction, uses words like deranged and schmuck in reference to Matthews.
Robert Stacy McCain gets my vote for Quote of the Day:
What is so profoundly offensive about the unethical and dishonest behavior of Chris Matthews, Joan Walsh and other such Democrat sockpuppets is that they won’t admit who they are and what they’re doing. They are not independent journalists, they’re partisan publicists, yet they expect to be taken seriously as reporters when they can’t even be bothered to do a Google search and find out when a factory closed.
They are a disgrace to the profession to which they claim to belong. Truth matters. Truth is precious and powerful. Liars are a dime a dozen.
Come on Mr. McCain, tells us what you really think!
Townhall catches up with Representative Allen West for his reaction to Matthews and he seems to think Chris "thrill up my leg" Matthews is "off his medications" or "off the rails," and shows the "desperation" on the other side.
I respectfully disagree with Congressman West, his answers implies that Matthews ever started his meds or was ever on the rails and that, in and of itself, is debatable.
