Skip to comments.On Matthews' Hard Ball, David Corn says Rush Limbaugh is "inviting John Wilkes Booth..."

Chris Matthews opened Hardball with video from the past two days of Jim Yeager, Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh defending the second amendment. David Corn says Rush is "inviting John Wilkes Booth..." Matthews says Rush should know better. Matthews also introduced the segment (usually rebroadcast at 7:00 PM EST) by saying he was "going to nut country" and said that was a quote from JFK just before he went to Dallas for the last time.
Right before Hardball, Martin Bashir said that the report that the armed officer assigned to the school that were the latest shooting occurred wasn't there because he was snowed-in "proves" that armed officers at schools are not the solution.
Matthews announced at the end of the segment that it is being reported that Jim Yeager has had his TN conceal carry permit yanked.
According to Bashir the cop not being there proves it wouldn’t have made a difference if the cop WAS there . Just one more thing that proves liberals and their voters are stupid.
If anyone is inviting it, I’d say it’s Obama.
Does Mathews realize that Booth was a democrat and an actor?
I am beginning to wonder if he has some sort of brain distorter which is liquifying his grey matter.
They want him to look like Lincoln so bad.
...to further the cause, you know!
Who exactly is John Yeager and why should I care if he had his permit pulled.
Oh and Chris Matthews is an idiot.
I think his liquid problem involves Grey Goose.
I’ll pay for the theater tickets....
“I am beginning to wonder if he has some sort of brain distorter which is liquifying his grey matter.”
It’s called alcoholism.
Yup. Instead of uniting the nation, the nation is divided. No problem there as I detest and hate liberals.
Hey, Corn: What you really meant to say is that you and your pals would like to murder all of us. Now be honest for once in your life.
Sorry Cornball, if anyone is inviting a John Wilkes Booth, it’s Obama himself. Booth saw Lincoln as a tyrant, another Julius Caesar who had declared himself dictator for life. And like Brutus and the rest of Caesar’s assassins, Booth believed that by killing Lincoln, he would be ridding the country of an overzealous dictator. If Obama continues to abuse his executive powers, violate the Constitution, and take away the rights of American citizens, he’s putting a target on his own back.
Does that mean, “Death of a President” that mimicked the death of GWB, was merely “performance art?”
A little odd he should refer to Dallas as “nut country” when Oswald was one of his people, i.e. a pinko. Also, he was a New Orleanser. But, heckfire, I giss all them Suthners is the same, shyucks./s
Is this the old, diehard argument that JFK was killed by white, racist, Southern bumpkins (in a city of between half a milling and a million people) in retaliation for the civil rights act, or what?
They are gonna pull some Hwood skeet show and fake his way out.
I agree. See my comment at 14. I wrote it before I saw yours.
No, that was “positive social commentary” and film “dialogue.”
Looks like MSNBC is doing gun rights insurrection all night tonight.
Also on Martin Bashir’s program right before Hardball one panelist declared authoritatively that the founder’s couldn’t possibly have intended the 2A as a defense against the imposition of tyranny because the whole intent of the constitution was obviously to support the new government using lawful means laid out in the document.
Probably not news to seasoned 2A activists, another panelist said that the strict CA open carry while loaded act, the Mulford Act, was signed by Reagan in response to armed militia activities by the Black Panthers which this female black panelist said was supported by NRA.
The Mulford Act was a 1967 California bill prohibiting the public carrying of loaded firearms. Named after assemblyman Don Mulford, the bill garnered national attention after the Black Panthers marched on the California Capitol to protest the bill. The bill was signed by California Governor Ronald Reagan and became California penal code 12031 and 171(c).
Instead of blaming someone who is expressing the disgust of all decent Americans (granted, in a watered down, milder form than many of us feel), perhaps Mathews could advise the petty tyrant he worships to tone it down. We still value freedom and the rule of law in this country, and Obama's disgusting and evil actions are far more provocative than any mere words from an entertainer.
Little Davy Corn and Chrissy Matthews really need to lighten up. Barry has no plans to become their saint and martyr. The white boys are going to have to find somebody else for that kind of liberal crap. Geeesh.
See story on Jim Yeager:
How long before conservatives start being “disappeared”?
If an attempt is made for a direct frontal assault at Bronco Bama, it will be a highly doctrinaire young True Believer who does not think that the process has moved fast enough or far enough. Making a martyr is a very bad political move if you disagree with the aims and opinions of a particular public figure. But on the other hand, making a martyr out of someone who was sort of the same persuasion, does a great deal to insure that whatever the direction of cultural change was already going forth, greatly accelerates that rate of change.
The Great Society of LBJ could never have proceeded if JFK had NOT been shot, and rendered a huge sympathy vote for a very unlikeable person who put into place a burdensome range of social program that has sent ripples through society even today.
I always suspected that LBJ had a more than casual hand in the demise of both John and Robert Kennedy, and probably Martin Luther King as well.
Look for a “Reichstag moment”.
Lincoln was a Republican. Lee Harvey was a Communist. JFK was a conservative Democrat by today’s standards.
“The Great Society of LBJ could never have proceeded if JFK had NOT been shot, and rendered a huge sympathy vote for a very unlikeable person who put into place a burdensome range of social program that has sent ripples through society even today.”
This is a terrifying analogy if applied to today’s situation with the pending progressive agenda of gun confiscation, single-payer nationalized healthcare, open borders, religion as “hate speech”...
Mr. Limbaugh makes north of $200,000,000 a year. I think he can afford bodyguards and security protection at home and his office. It’s you and me that I’m worried about. Socialism killed hundreds of millions in the 20th Century and they’re not finished. That’s why we cannot allow them to enact any more gun laws and must repeal all the unconstitutional rules they have made since the constitutional convention.
No one’s gonna off this guy.
Last thing we need is another martyr.
“Other than that, how was the theater, Mrs. Lincoln?”
More like zero is inciting a race war and a constitutional crisis.
I have thought from the beginning that a Reichstag fire was coming.
Unfortunately, I think the puppet masters have planned for “Obama” to at the role of the Reichstag.
I wonder if he knows.
If it weren’t for Rush, I would never hear anything about Matthews, Piers, and all the other kooks on the liberal cable networks. I often wonder if Rush gets advertising dollars from these kooks. If he isn’t, he is missing a revenue source.
At least two tickets for me, should be much more!
If that happens, bodyguards and security protection notwithstanding, Rush will be one of the very first to go.
I doubt it.
From the article:
saying he was "going to nut country" and said that was a quote from JFK just before he went to Dallas for the last time
And did they forget that Oswald was a communist?
If he doesn’t already have homes in Costa Rica, Singapore and elsewhere, and escape plans, I’ll eat my hat.
Ask Breitbart's widow.
No doubt this has been expressed already, but I gotta say, if it wasn’t so darn serious the fire they keep playing with, these childish fools would be great comedy. They are utterly insane.
Had a long go around with one I thought was reasonable and dang, these anti gun nuts are rabid!
‘ll pay for horse and bandages.
Having a cop or an armed guard at all schools would be, quite frankly, a massive waste of money. Just like those silly procedures where all the doors are locked so no one can get in are a total waste of time.
There was an armed cop at Columbine.
So three former Presidents appeared to Obama in a dream one night. What advice can you give me he asked them? George Washington said “always be honest with the American people”. Thomas Jefferson told him to “always honor the Constitution”. Abraham Lincoln said “See a play”.
Or tha Oswald was a communist?
...the report that the armed officer assigned to the school that were the latest shooting occurred wasn’t there because he was snowed-in “proves”....that single point failures are not the solution!
Who ever said one defender per school was enough?
that could be why he ordered the secret service protection for life.
The making of Abe Bama. The left joins in the cult of personality to glorify a narcissistic, America-hating demagogue.
“This Southwest United States was built by men who carried their rifles and plowed their fields. They plowed their fields because they were building for the future, and they carried their rifles in order that there might be a future.” — John Kennedy. 10/29/1961 A speech in which the President refers to the Governor but not by name. Trying to avoid having his picture taken with Orville E. Faubus—80% of the black vote.
Yep...he's a chicken sh*t.
