Chris Matthews: This ĎDuck Farmí Guy Is A Part of GOPís Problem [VIDEO]
The Daily Caller ^ | Heather Smith

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

MSNBC host Chris Matthews was baffled Friday night by the GOP’s choice to invite “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson to speak at the Republican Leadership Conference.

Matthews told his “Hardball” audience that the GOP’s “showing up with this guy from ‘Duck Farm or whatever’ is part of the problem. They’re playing to people who have rebel license plates on their cars. That’s who they’re talking to with this character.”

“I guess the GOP is more desperate than I thought to call someone like me,” Robertson had told the audience at RLC on Thursday.

MSNBC commentator Michelle Bernard joined Matthews in slamming the GOP’s choice of bringing the “Duck Dynasty” star as “sticking to the white racist in the country.”(continued)

The problem isn't "the rebel license plate".
The problem is that the Robertsons are unapologetic Christians.

But Christine Matthews would feel uncomfortable saying that openly.

Never forget that Chris Matthews was once successfully replaced by an orange traffic cone, and could be again.

Has anyone told her about Phil's black grandson?

” They’re playing to people who have rebel license plates on their cars”

And that comment isn’t one of the worst examples of profiling and prejudice that one can imagine?

I grew up in a large northern city, have never lived in the south, and can say that attitudes like Matthew’s are all too common among the ‘I’m educated, don’t have an accent, and therefore must be smarter than those yahoo’s from the South’ crowd of Northerners.

This isn’t about the civil war, or the confederates, etc. This is about the idea that anyone who doesn’t put sociology over religion, and who doesn’t hold the same mindset depicted in John Lennon’s “Imagine”, is just ‘not smart’. It’s about thinking that those who think differently than the left are ‘just ignorant’, and that their convictions couldn’t possibly have any credibility. It’s really no different than racism based on skin color. No different.

From his Esquire interview.

“I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash. We’re going across the field…. They’re singing and happy. I never heard one of them, one black person, say, ‘I tell you what: These doggone white people’—not a word!… Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare, you say: Were they happy? They were godly; they were happy; no one was singing the blues.”

And right on cue, White Liberals who have never set foot in Louisiana, nor grew up in his time, immediately claimed that Phil was saying blacks were better off as slaves.

Funny, he doesn’t look old enough to have witnessed chattel slavery.

Nope, it is not.

For myself, I thank God that I was born into “ignorance”.

I cannot imagine the horror of living with their kind of “intellect”.

And Phil is right.

Isn’t this the same guy who said that Barack Obama was bored with his job as President, that it just wasn’t “big enough” for his remarkable talents? Well, five years later we have massive unemployment and underemployment disguised by phony Labor Dept. numbers, slow or no growth, ridiculous standing overseas, a disastrous healthcare plan whose mess is evident already at the VA. I could go on, this must be due to the boredom Matthews saw in a man whose talents demand bigger jobs, cause he sure ain’t doing this one.
