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

Posted on 05/31/2014 1:31:41 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

(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)

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

He says that like it’s a bad thing.

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.

Where do these boneheads get the notion that Phil Robertson is a racist ?

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.

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.

Hey Chrissie, his show - DUCK DYNASTY - gets better ratings than you do. Of course, you think only ‘ people with rebel flags on their license plates’ would watch it, because unlike the brain dead people who watch your show, they are proud to be Americans and to show what you can do if you got an idea. Success made them and with GOD’s help they are telling people that America, even with a Marxist in the White House and an idiot leading the Senate (of course, the house leader is as bad), is still great!! What are you telling your viewer (or do you more than 1) about America?

Sorry. I can't picture Salamander in the Robertson family. I've seen your home page. By the way I attended an Alice Cooper concert in Lawrence, Ks April 1973.

Mr. Robertson has millions of viewers for Duck Dynasty versus all 3 viewers for Chrissy’s Mushball program.

Little Chrissie is clueless. Duck Dynasty is not about “duck farms”. Wake the **** up Chrissie and do a little research before you go on TV and start passing DemocRAT gas.

I guess if you don’t have a Matthews-approved license plate on your car you don’t deserve representation.

No! to people with Gadsden license plates and a big ole Stars and Bars flag from there pickup truck bed. Only girlie men like you drive cars in the South. And big news flash to you Chrissie Poo. You would not believe how many cars we see down here from New York, New Jersey and Illinois. Those folks can't wait to get out of the North and the left wing nut job government. No jobs, no guns, no freedom why would you leave that heaven on earth.

I get the impression that Chris would like to re-institute slavery in the South starting with Bible believing Christian citizens like Phil Robertson.

I never watched Duck Dynasty. I don’t even have a TV. BUT...

When I go in to practically any store with sporting goods. I see. Duck Dynasty merchandize EVERYWHERE, just like Spaceballs. I hear about Duck Dynasty all the time on radio shows and internet blogs. I have NEVER actively sought any Duck Dynasty information YET, they are everywhere.

Now... Has anyone, ANYONE, ever seen a Chris Matthews T shirt? The only clothing Chris Matthews related that I know of has stains running down the legs.

I love the fact that the leftist and democrats always want to give the republicans advice on how to win an election and its by believing what they do.....god awful idiots but no one listens to msnbc....saw the stats once on what stations get the most listeners....MSNBC has less listeners than the population of Detroit....they are not worth reporting on...we give them too much attention...
