MSNBC's Chris Matthews to Black Pastor: 'I Hope You Evolve'

Hardball anchor Chris Matthews, who routinely smears his political opponents as racist, on Monday lectured an African American minister who opposes gay marriage, "I hope you evolve." The host patronizingly added, "I'm just teasing." How would he (or MSNBC for that matter) react if a conservative said such a thing to a black leader?

Matthews interviewed Bishop Harry Jackson, who has spoken out against Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage. Speaking of Jesus Christ, Matthews ridiculously linked accusations that Mitt Romney once bullied a teen, nearly 50 years ago: "Do you think [Christ] would have been chasing after the kid with long hair and cutting his hair or he would have been the one protecting the kid with long hair in high school?"

Matthews sarcastically added, "But you're with the guy who was going after the kid with long hair." (Pastor Jackson informed the host that he was not, yet, supporting Romney.) …

I saw Matthews on Jeopardy today.

He came across as a real jerk. Also finished a weak third unless he mad a comeback in final jeopardy.

So, Matthews is taking the position that what one does as a teen, almost 5 decades ago, doesn’t change over time as one matures.

Therefore, Chris must still be abusing alcohol regularly and is no longer to be referred to as a “former” alcohol abuser.

Okay then, let it be so.

Chris Matthews is a domestic terrorist who works for a domestic terrorist organization. They should both be seen as and treated accordingly.

It’s okay for Obama to call himself a monkey.

It is not okay for that white liberal to call a black preacher a monkey.

If it was a conservative that had done that, there would be calls for his firing.

If you don’t accept the liberal line on everything, you haven’t evolved. Get lost, Matthews, you Democrat hack.

LOL!
Olog-hai, nobody here watches or cares what Chris Mathews says about anything!

But as a related side note, does his media marketing company actually pay you a fee to go to Internet websites and mention him?
If so, how much do they pay?
Just curious...

But you haven't said how much YOU personally get paid to mention him online, if anything.

Do you get paid?

I have to wonder if he’s even capable of grasping that any species that “evolves” to homsexuality is finished. It’s an evolutionary dead end.

They usually pull up the lie that animals exhibit homosexual behavior (which they do not) when confronted with something like that. Remember the allegedly-homosexual penguins, that suddenly found heterosexual mates and “forgot” about each other? (Only in their sick minds was the behavior of those then-juvenile male penguins “homosexual” or in any way sexual; animals and birds don’t exhibit truly sexual behavior until a female goes into “heat” as they call it.)

Homosex doesn’t make babies, and when there’s no babies you’re done - that’s the end of the line. There’s no talking your way out of that.

I was in the “studio audience” when the Chris Matthews episode was recorded.

He’s an unintelligent, inarticulate boob ... and brother, believe me he looks better on TV than he did in person.

Pastor should have told Chrissy, “I hope you repent. Just kidding.” I wonder if Chrissy would have laughed at that.

I noticed when they were asking about their charity, the other two gave a quick succinct account of their charity.

When it came to Matthews it sounded to me that he was very slow and then simply told Alex not to cut him off, then took a very long convoluted speech about his charity. I mean he did not ask, he simply told them not to cut him off.

Not being the one in control clearly gave him a bit of a problem a couple of times. The question or I suppose answer was to give the full name of the U2 pilot shot down over Russia. Matthews said “Gary Powers”, Alex then asked him for the full name again and Matthews again said “Gary Powers” this time forcefully as if he was mad. Next the girl simply said “Francis Gary Powers” The idiot could not comprehend what a full name is.

Heh ... the Gary Powers thing was appalling. What you didn’t see on TV was that they had to tape the “what’s your charity” thing two or three times, because he couldn’t manage to utter a complete and coherent sentence.

He’s a disgrace to Catholic education.

That none of them knew who Ty Cobb was did surprise me, especially since they all seemed to know baseball pretty well.

He was the first one voted in to the Hall of Fame with no one else even close.

Many years ago, I saw Casey Stengel on “You Bet Your Life” with Groucho Marx. Groucho had a fairly long interview with him before the game began. He asked Casey who the best player ever was and Stengel said “Ty Cobb, no one else was even close”

Groucho agreed then asked how he thought Cobb would do against today’s pitchers. Casey replied that he would guess around 270. Marx said “that is not all that great” and Stengel said “well you have to remember that Cobb is in his 70’s”.

I suspect that was a set up but the rest of the conversation did not strike me as staged.

LOL!

HEY! sarasmom!

"The lunatic is on the grass
The lunatic is on the grass
Remembering games and daisy chains and laughs
Got to keep the loonies on the path
The lunatic is in the hall
The lunatics are in my hall
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor
And every day the paper boy brings more
And if the dam breaks open many years too soon
And if there is no room upon the hill
And if your head explodes with dark forbodings too
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon
The lunatic is in my head
The lunatic is in my head
You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'till I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me.
And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon"

"Pink Floyd"

Careful with that AXE, Eugene

LOL! sarasmom. Who is PLAYING you?

HAHAHA!
