Chris Matthews is hemorrhaging viewers, so it’s time to begin the hate speech.
Tonight he is going to show some sort of “documentary” that claims the Tea Parties are evil nasty thingys with big sharp teeth; people with guns who are going to murder you in your sleep.
Here he is, previewing his own show:
MATTHEWS: “Let me finish tonight with our big documentary coming up here tomorrow night. ” The Rise of the New Right” at 7:00 p.m. Eastern tomorrow night will stun you with what`s happening to this country. You`ll never again believe the so-called Tea Party Movement is just about taxes or deficits or Obamacare. No, what you`ll see is far more like the original Tea Party up in Boston, the one that previewed our war against the British. Look at the Gadsden flag they wield, that warning of “Don`t Tread on Me” with the coiled rattlesnake. In 1776, it served warning to those who threatened America from abroad. Today, it`s being waved in contempt of our own honestly elected American government in Washington. Listen to Rush Limbaugh`s stir on the new right by calling the government in Washington a regime, or Orly Taitz, leader of the birthers, calling the president illegitimate. Listen to militiamen on guard against tyranny here on the Potomac and you get the full force of what`s happening.”
“This isn`t about what the tax rate should be. It`s an argument about whether the federal government deserves toppling like any other tyranny or illegitimate regime in history. It`s not the talk of politics, but of revolution. Listen to Limbaugh, Beck and Palin and Michele Bachmann, Orly Taitz, and, yes, Rand Paul, and you`ll hear of a Washington that has usurped authority of a president who`s not one of us, of a Congress that needs to be investigated for treason, of a country itself that`s been taken over and needs to be taken back. The voices you`ll hear speak for themselves, the guns you see, the semi-automatic weapons in the arms of those who see the government of the United States as the looming tower of tyranny. If I can put it as bluntly as possible, catch ” The Rise of the New Right” here tomorrow night at 7:00, and you`ll suddenly get why you`re seeing men at political rallies for the first time ever wearing guns.
Oh, about those guns. There were a few men who showed up with their guns at a rally a couple of months back. They were protesting the fact that they felt Obama wanted to take their guns away. It was entirely legal in Arizona for them to show up with their weapons, since they had permits. But in the lying world of Chris Matthews, this gets shortened to “men showing up at political rallies with guns” as if they intended to use them.
And remember, the guy with the AR-15 was black. And when MSNBC showed the picture, they cropped it so you could not tell he was black.
But here, in fact, is a list of the political violence that has occured, and it’s all on the left, brother:
Before letting the media continue to perpetuate a stereotype that may not actually exist at all, let me give you the facts that U.S. journalists refuse to cite. Let me show you where real violence comes from, and I don’t even need to mention the millions of babies killed every year by progressives or even the tens of millions of people murdered by their communist heroes.
It was not the fear of conservative violence that caused Ann Coulter’s speech to be cancelled this week.
It was a liberal who bit the finger off a man who disagreed with him on healthcare.
It was Obama-loving Amy Bishop who took a gun to work and murdered co-workers.
Joseph Stack flew his plane into the IRS building after writing an anti-conservative manifesto.
It was liberals who destroyed AM radio towers outside of Seattle.
It’s liberals who burn down Hummer dealerships.
It was progressive SEIU union thugs who beat a black conservative man who spoke his mind.
It’s doubtful that a conservative fired shots into a GOP campaign headquarters.
Don’t forget it was Obama’s friend Bill Ayers who used terrorism as a tool for political change. SDS is still radical, with arrests in 2007 and the storming of the CATO Institute in July 2008.
