Chris Matthews: Did You Drink Three Fifths?
American Thinker ^ | 10/21/2013 | Ken Blackwell

Posted on 10/21/2013 7:56:09 AM PDT by rktman

MSNBC's erratic Hardball host, Chris Matthews, has again gone off the deep end with his nonsense talk about the Constitution's three-fifths clause. He's claiming that conservatives believe black people are, or once were, only three-fifths of a person.

Why does a group of people that always loses elections or tends to do lately, why do they call themselves American people because - do they still count blacks as three-fifths? Three-fifths of a vote?

LOL! The ever affable and brilliant christine matthews shows his stupidity once again. Don't these asshats know anything? Probably they do but still would rather "inform" the low/no info voters of "made up" truth. And they go for the bait as usual.

I believe Christine Matthews is three-fifths human.

Does that make me a racist?

Unbelievable. Liberals step in that hole constantly, completely misinterpreting the 3/5ths Compromise.

How do you count 3/5ths of a vote?

Seems to me like the actual ratio of votes counted is more like 4:1

I believe Prissy Matthews consumes three fifths before spewing forth his lunacy on MSLSD.

Looks like they’ve been making up for it in the past few elections...

And, lefties - the 3/5ths actually LOWERED THE VOTING POWER OF THE SLAVE STATES.

Get it?

Counting non-voting slaves as “population” would have increased the number of House members...

Ain’t no accident. They’ve convinced the “minority” that the tea party doesn’t consider “minorities” to be complete and thus inferior. Ergo; free stuff since being less than whole, they would be incapable of attaining things on their own.

It was the democrate slaveholders that considered the black slaves less than human. Not the Republicans.

Thus the HUGE guilt they carry and need to “make it right”.

Chris Matthews is only 3/5ths of a man. The remainder is flaming homo.

It was the North - - ie., the people who opposed slavery - - who demanded the “3/5” of a vote for slaves. The South would have loved giving slaves a full vote. Heck, 2 votes! This ignoramus Chris Matthews is the perfect face of MSNBC. He’s a real spitfire (snort!).

I’m fed up with this crap. I’m fed up with people who assign people to a group, and assign characteristics to every member of the group.

Slight correction - it wasn’t for “voting”, because the slaves couldn’t vote regardless of how they were counted.
It was for population based representation in the House of Representatives.
