Chris Matthews: Republican Primary Runoff Is So No 'Black Guy' Will Win
Truth Revolt ^ | 5/20/14 | Caleb Howe

Posted on 05/20/2014 7:03:56 PM PDT by absentee

[video] On Hardball today, Chris Matthews offered up a theory on why Republicans have runoffs in close elections in the South. Discussing the Georgia primary, Matthews was noting that it was likely no one candidate would take more than fifty percent of the vote, and had this to say:

By the way, the reason they have these runoffs? Is to make sure no black guy ever won a nomination down there.

For the record, the five Republicans Matthews is talking about - David Perdue, Jack Kingston, Karen Handel, Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey - are all white. No one in the runoff will be a "black guy" that Republicans want to "make sure" won't win.

Chris Matthews would crawl over broken glass for the chance to destroy any of these fine men.

If all goes as expected we will have TWO black southern republican senators when the next senate begins in January. How will Chrissy figure that out?

I think the Democrats started it with that theory.

But with a jungle(racist) primary it is worse. You get RINOs like Vance McAmnesty McAllister.

Chris Matthews has something very dark in his past regarding racism. No one is this obsessed... NO ONE. I think he either did something, or was part of something very bad in which a black person was assaulted, injured, or maybe worse.

Here's something to consider about liberals (especially Chris Matthews) , and conservatives.

We MUST get rid of these evil people.

As we all know, Chrissie is dumber than a brick.

Conservatives don’t run black guys just to run black guys. Conservatives run qualified candidates. There are qualified conservative black guys and they have run.

Liberal idiots like Chrissie will run black guys regardless if they are qualified. Case in point - Obama, the most unqualified to ever run let alone win.

Worse. Liberals assume that all black guys are unqualified. And run them anyway.

Don’t forget Tim Scott. South Carolina is a white majority state and elected Tim Scott to statewide office. Tell me the last time a Democrat white majority elected a black man to anything. And BO doesn’t count because he’s a fake black guy.

Does Chrissie live in a 'hood' neighborhood?
If not, why not?

Until he walks his own talk, he should STFU!!

He may be partially right. I don't know many Republican blacks- but there are some damn good conservative ones.

How will Chrissy figure that out?

They will be Uncle Toms, race traitors and sellouts - three very clear and concise explanations...

The institution of runoffs in the south is actually a hangover from Reconstruction. One of the effects of the Civil War and Reconstruction was to give the Republican party such a bad name in the south that the Democrats became the only party. That being so, they realized they needed intra-party democracy to allow people a meaningful vote and not have a bunch of total minority candidates elected; hence, they established runoffs in their primaries. Especially, with blacks otherwise disenfranchised, there was no reason to adopt runoffs to keep them from being nominated.

Chris Matthews really hates the south. He always refers to it as “down there”. I wonder if he has ever been outside of a big lib city before. He is such a close-minded idiot.

“Conservatives run qualified candidates.”

True. But what about the Republican Party?

What happened to Mathews that makes him think he “speaks” for blacks? Oh, never mind. It was that tingle up his leg.

Hissy Mattews has become so irrational that I am left to conclude he no longer has a penis ... there is no other explanation for him being so full of piss and vinegar with zero healthy thoughts.

I would require runoffs in every race, to include the presidency.

You don’t get 50.000000001 percent, then there’s a runoff.

Yes, we need another black guy as president - to continue Obama’s success.

What about Condoleezza Rice? She has a mediocre track record as Secretary of State, and a bunch of conservatives still swoon over the idea of running her for a major office.
