Chris Matthews Slams 'Evil' Rush Limbaugh for Spreading Climate Change 'Lies'
newsbusters.org ^ | June 22, 2011 | Scott Whitlock

Posted on 06/22/2011 4:45:51 PM PDT by PROCON

A frothing Chris Matthews on Wednesday excoriated Rush Limbaugh as "evil" for spreading "lies" about global warming.

The Hardball host highlighted a new Rolling Stone article by Al Gore that chides Barack Obama for not doing enough on climate change.

Matthews, however, chose to attack Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh: "These people are evil in what they're doing. I'm not saying their souls are evil, but what they're doing is really, really wrong and it's not the President."

[See video below. MP3 audio here.]

The MSNBC host declared no room for debate on global warming, announcing, "But here is a fact on the table. Global warming, climate change, Rush Limbaugh says stuff that...is just not true. I never use the word lie, but it's appropriate here."

Piling on, Matthews accused Limbaugh of being disingenuous: "Rush Limbaugh is not a stupid person. Glenn Beck is not stupid. They're saying it on purpose."

After calling Limbaugh "evil," Matthews compared him to a raging inferno: "Churchill, my hero, said this once, 'I refuse to be impartial between the fire brigade and the fire.' The President is the fire brigade on this. He may not be the greatest fire brigade, but damn it, he's not the fire. Glenn Beck is. Rush Limbaugh is the fire."

"Evil" is a term Matthews likes to throw around. He previously used the word on Newt Gingrich and mocked him for looking like "the devil."

Chris Matthews does not understand a thing about Winston Churchill. Churchill would destroy Matthews in conversation if he was alive.

My standard response to any Chris Matthews post: All the millions who die from malaria, and this turd catches it yet lives on. There’s no justice.

I have a solution. Let’s send him a tweet of Weiner’s ‘climate change package’ and he’ll leave the rest of us alone for a couple weeks while he ‘inspects it for accuracy.’

So, voicing some skepticism about this fraud is EEEEEVIL, but working to engineer the further destruction of industrial civilization and the way of life of millions of peope, in support of the same fraud, and personally profiting from that destruction, is good. Got it.

Has anyone in the “Main Stream” media ever investigated how much Algore has made off of this man made Global Warming/ Climate Change hoax? He’s a secular Elmer Gantry.

Commissar Chrissy is issuing cover-fire to distract his viewers — both of them — from the fact that there has been a falling out between Father Al Gore, High-Priest of AGW, and the Savior, Barak Obama.

Rush isn’t the one spreading the climate change lies, and his motives aren’t evil. Chris needs to let the alcohol dry out of his squishy brain. It’s getting really soggy in there. And Churchill wouldn’t give Chris the time of day.

A graduate of Holy Cross, Matthews completed graduate work in economics at the University of North Carolina and was a trade development advisor with the U.S. Peace Corps in Swaziland. He has received honorary doctoral degrees from St. Leo University, Loyola College (Maryland), Niagara University, Fontbonne College, Beaver College, the New England School of Law, Anna Maria College and Chestnut Hill College.

Well, there you go...

“The MSNBC host declared no room for debate on global warming,”

Churchill once said that there is sometimes more to be
learned by what is assumed than what is debated. Evidently
Chrissy either never learned this or is too stupid to
comprehend it.

As Americans laugh at Al Gore and Obama’s global warming or man made climate change or whatever these fools want to call it, the traitors lick their chops.

The EPA is poised to run electric generation costs through the roof and you will pay. The traitors are well positioned to profit. American businesses will falter but the Dems will grow richer, positioned to eventually control America and hence YOU.

Laugh all you want, they don’t think they can loose with useful idiots like Mathews leading the way.

"These people are evil in what they're doing. I'm not saying their souls are evil, but what they're doing is really, really wrong and it's not the President."

Wasn't it Matthews who said in 2008 that "He [Obama] seems to have the answers. This is the New Testament."

No, I'm not going to pay the high prices. I live here in the DC area, and virtually all of the EPA geeks who are planning this and writing the regulations to make it happen are around here somewhere.

They don't know it but they will get to pay my heating bill this winter when I take down ALL THEIR TREES. At least that's one of our plans.

All the smart people around here have planned ahead by installing fireplaces.

Matthews needs to give the liberal rational for 'climate change'.

There was a flawed - but REAL rational for global warming - based on the greenhouse effect. Simple to understand - an example is a locked car with the windows up - light comes in - gets trapped - and becomes 'heat'. We've all experienced it getting into a hot car in summer. Turns out the light wasn't being trapped - that other mechanisms were at play with our earth... but on some levels the idea made sense.

But there's NO idea behind climate change. As far as I can see the only 'idea' is to keep the money flowing into the old global warming folks... That's it. NO theory... no plans ... nothing. Just 'keep giving us the money for the discredited plan..."

Matthews needs to ask some questions.
