Did I just hear Chris Matthews say "I'm a Marxist when it comes to analysis"?

Did I just hear Chris Matthews say "I'm a Marxist when it comes to analysis"?

...While trying to make a point about people voting based on their pocketbooks?

If he did, he’ll never stand by his own words.

It’s eerie when they admit to these things openly.

What he probably meant was that he is a Marxist in terms of historical analysis. A Marxist Historian, by definition, analyzes everything in view of economics as the driving factor for everything. Now, that ideology seeps into other things, but, that is likely what he meant.

I don’t think he of the tingly leg knows the difference between Marxism and Moronism.

Sounds Plausible. I’m not sure if he claims to be a history buff. He’s a blubbering hack. But he’s not dumb enough to proclaim himself a Marxist on the air.

and to think this clown actually considered running for the Pennsylvania Senate seat against Rick Santorum. As if he actually had a chance.

Somebody mentioned on another thread that he was broadcasting from a tavern and appeared sloshed. Alot of times the truth comes out when you’re sloshed.

So NBC is still 49% owned by General Electric. Thus, General Electric must still die.
Along with Comcast, who owns the other 51%.

No, it’s eerie observing otherwise bright people put themselves to sleep (denial) and refuse to see the reality of what’s happening to this country.

It’s called communism.

How does Matthews survive? First he says Alinsky is his hero, then he says he depends on Marxist analysis. I guess that makes him qualified to be a commentator on MSNBC.

Hey Chris, Marxism is over. I know you and your fellow Marxists don’t want to admit it, but the only truly Marxist countries on Earth are North Korea and Cuba. And who wants to live in those places?

I don’t think he would be the first Marxist in the Senate.

No problem. I was a history major and met my fair share of Marxist Historians. While I disagree with their ideology, it does have its moments. I think it tends to ignore everything else to focus purely on the economic, which is a mistake (thus ignoring religion, etc).

Marxist? Ah! Why doesn’t he call it by the real name - ie. those opposing recognizing the genuinely competent and accusing them of being moneyed?

Then again, Chrissy is not even brained enough to contemplate ever being accused of any responsability for being this or that.

He is a Marxist-Leninist, and he will be a Marxist-Leninist until the day he dies — just like one of his heroes, Fidel Castro.
