Skip to comments.Chris Matthews: States’ Rights Equals Racism
Posted on 02/11/2010 3:26:42 PM PST by callisto
MSNBCs Chris Matthews is never one to let the facts get in the way of race-baiting. According to Matthews and Tuesdays Hardball
guests partisan shills, constitutionally guaranteed states rights are now racist!
< snip >
Matthews built his strawman argument, jumping from John Calhoun to Jim Crow, as he equated nullification and interposition to equal rights. Equating the succession movement to the equal rights movement is just nonsensical, Chris. Just because people have used these words doesnt undermine the validity of the concepts presently at hand.
You could almost feel the terror when guest, Wayne Slater of the Dallas Morning News, described the fright stump talk about the 10th Amendment and state rights gives the Left,
Kind of gives you a shiver because that phrase is obviously freighted from the civil rights movement. To ignore the nativist racial aspect of this is to ignore the reality of the success and appeal of this pitch to a conservative Republican primary constituency.

I.E - you’re White and whatever you say is racist .... Hey Chris! You’re a racist .....
I have never seen anyone so obsessed with skin color as Chris Matthews. Pathetic.
Chrissy is having another Obama tingle hot flash!
And I guess that the concept of “individual rights” than equals selfishness and hatred of others.
What a complete asshat.
So, politicians in Washington DC are not racist; but, everyone in Arizona is?
I think Chrissy is getting another tingle up his a—
Pretty sad what Mathews has become. Once upon a time, he was a serious reporter who used to take the Clintons to the woodshed. He was respected here on FR. Seriously.
People need to acknowledge where and when this started. It actually started with liberals during the Bush administration. That’s why states like Michigan, NY, and California were where some of the first legislation was floated past committees.
If you choose white American cheese over yellow American cheese, you are a racist!
Does he have syphilis?
chrissy is an ignoramous, unhappy person. Period.
“...I have never seen anyone so obsessed with skin color as Chris Matthews. Pathetic....”
Apparently you haven’t had the displeasure of knowing the former mayor of Memphis, Tn.
By critizing Matthews we give him power. Best to let his opinions drop on the floor with the rest of the garbage.
All powers not delegated to the federal government belong to the states or to the people.
So to this fool, the delegation of power from one government entity to another is racism. Weird.
Doesn’t much matter what Chrissy thinks, it’s Constitutional. He doesn’t like it, I suggest he move to another country.
There’s probably been worse but his obsession shows how shallow and desperate he is. This is the best he and his ilk have now that their policies and politicians are being exposed as incompetent and fraudulent.
...I have never seen anyone so obsessed with skin color as Chris Matthews. Pathetic....

King Willie! Coming to a congress near you!
I'm thinking that Chrissy, at some time in the past couple of years, has "gone black" and now can never "come back".
I admittedly have briefly increased Chris Matthews’ viewship in the recent weeks out of curiousity and to study for myself whether or not his show presents factual arguments.
What chain of events leads a person to be so thoroughly in the wrong about the fundamental freedoms of this Nation, and really Man in general?What spawns such a raw, irrational hatred of logic and reason? What has blinded that man to allow him to vigorously support the very persons who will most certainly bring about what he most loudly protests?
Liberalism is a study in contradictions...
If a white person breaths Chris Matthews proclaims him or her to be a racist, what else is new.
It’s typical for liberals to be obsessed with skin color.
More like an Obama power surge.
Does he have syphilis?
Syphillis of the mouth, at minimum.
He’s been seduced by the socialists and gone over to the dark side. I’d dare say that Tip O’Neil would be spinning in his grave if he knew.
It’s part of the Left’s agenda. They have to assassinate the Constitution from every angle in order to facilitate removing its principles. Tagging elements of the Constitution with the word “racism” makes a memorable impression on people. The next time they hear others mentioning or supporting its principles their immediate thought will be “racist.”
Ken T. Cuccinelli, our new VA Ag, wrote this article about states rights, It reminds me of an exchange between a reporter and one of the several Democratic committee chairmen in the House that are addressing the health care bill: The reporter asked the chairman where in the Constitution does it say the federal government can mandate citizens to buy health insurance?
The chairman snapped back: Where does it say we cant?!
Sadly, like many of his cohorts, this chairman was blissfully unaware that if the Constitution doesnt say the federal government can do something, then it cant do it. And nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government given the authority to mandate citizens to purchase anything.
Is anyone else to the point where they don’t CARE what people call racist anymore? 99% of it is pure bull.
I have always said slavery aside the south was 100% in the right pre 1877. Constitutionally speaking. The 9th and 10th amendments are very simple that anyone with an 8th grade reading level can understand them. If it isn’t in the Constitution it is reserved to the states or the people.
...and they have a former KKK member in their Legislative midst. Mind Boggling!
Liberals have to be race obsessed, because they use race as a wedge to drive between people, to create hate. Chrissy also thinks it gives him a black audience, but black folks don’t want to look at his dumb, pasty, white, chubby butt.
He's light skinned and doesn't speak with a negro accent unless he wants one.
The guy reeks of desperation for viewers, but he is becoming so radical, he is turning into more of a circus sideshow than a political commentator.
So...the Republicrat party is going to give the same response to 10th Amendment assertion as they did 150 years ago?
Thats gonna go far....
Doesn’t Chrissy Matthews know that in 1861 - 1865 there was a little skirmish over the issue of States Rights. The War Between the States or as those above the Mason Dixon Line Civil War. Freedom of the Slaves was achieved in 1863 Emancipation Proclamation. As each state that seceded and returned, slaves were given their freedom. Racism has more to do with the issue now days as screaming “you are denying me what I believe are my rights for something wholly other.” Affirmative action has given minorities certain standards that a White Anglo Saxon Protestant Male is not given because of gender, and color. HaarvardUniversity bestowed two degrees on the Obamas that were achieved through affirmative action. Michelle stated that she got into Princeton because her brother had attended there prior to her attendance. Obama is not smart, just like Michelle, they both are incompetent. Chrissy Matthews is incompetent nincompoop.
When I hear people saying nonsense like this, I immediately propose binding national referenda on (for example) Conceal Carry, late-term abortion, gay marriage, capital punishment, a federal balanced budget, affirmative action, trials for terrorists, etc. etc. etc.
It’s fascinating to watch these people suddenly become strict Constitutionalists and states-rights advocates.
The quintessential Pillsbury Doughboy gives lessons in “racism”...that’s rich. Matthews needs to read more than just the captions under the pictures....
Boy, when I read things like this, just for a second I forget that Chris Matthews is a white guy.
Chrissy and Zero can share the same padded room when this insanity draws to a close.
They are both teetering on the edge. I sure hope someone is keeping a close eye on Zero too. Friend of mine was at the National Prayer Breakfast and swore Zero was on drugs. Said he seemed to be “off in la la land”
BTW, pre-secession it was the slave states that pushed for expansion of federal power to return fugitive slaves and the northern states that resisted this expansion with various state laws.
Does MSNBC have any news, or are they strictly entertainment?
“Does MSNBC have any news, or are they strictly entertainment?”
They’re not even entertainment. A mental ward, yes.
Matthews used to be comically tolerable, as a sort of dingbat Dem pundit. But in the last year or two, he’s really proven himself to be a totally vile POS. A real scumbag.
the man is obsessed with color.
how this buffoon has a job is beyond me, what is even more amazing is that there are a few who watch him
Ya know talking to Chris the other day about politics and Obama I almost forgot he is a dumba##. THOSE WHO THINK AND SPEAK RACISM ARE THE RACISTS!
