Matthews Suggests Opposition To ObamaCare Similar to Support For Segregation
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Opposed to ObamaCare? Maybe you're just a secret segregationist . . .

As absurd as it sounds, that's the possibility that Chris Matthews posed this evening. His guest was Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker, a Democrat who has declined Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue's request to sue the federal government over ObamaCare. Matthews reached back to 1964 to suggest that Perdue might also have opposed the Civil Rights law.

Someone should remind Xris Smathews that it was the democrats and their constituents that supported segregation.

Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker couldn’t even buy into Chrissy’s racists claims.

Riiiight....just like global warming "deniers" are akin to Holocaust deniers.

.....and Tea Party activists are exclusively motivated by racism.

Thing is, most libs (like Chris Tingle here) really believe the drek that flies out of their pieholes.

Dems and the MSM - sorry, didnt’ mean to be redundant - conveniently ‘forget’ that it wat Dixie Democrats who fought most vehemently against passage of the Civil Rights Bill and had it not been for Republican support it never would have passed.

They hate to admit that Conservatives truly do believe that men should be judged by the content of their character.

Please see #10.

PS: by coincidence, I did have a root canal this morning, without anathesia, and it was a lot less painful than watching Matthews ;-)

Hate/race is his substitute for rational reasoning.

Chrissy do you guys ever listen to yourselves before you go onair? Do you not realize how utterly desparate that line sounds? You guys do know the race card offically expired on Nov 4,2008 and due to overuse will not ever be renewed? You guys really shoud go back to writting your own material since the talking points from the DNC makes you all sound like broken records. Is there not a single original thought on your side of the aisle?

Looks like Chrissy Matthews is catering to his lowbrow moonbat base. What an embarrassment.

Well, then, we can count on Democrats to try and stop it. Like desegregation.

Chrissie needs to see a shrink to deal with his morbid obsession with race.

"Chrissie needs to see a shrink to deal with his morbid obsession with race."

Especially considering his ultra-Caucasion appearance, he's probably compensating for something:)

Under Jim Crow, Democrats let them Nigras associate with each other in their own restaurants, schools, churches, restrooms and bus stops without any segregation whatsoever.

Do you seriously think a Democrat Governor would take the refusal of a GOP AG to follow a directive to sue somebody laying down?

The GOP is a joke, I saw the Nevada Governor get his ass handed to him by his socialist bitch AG as well.

The GOP Governors should be calling for a GD mob to from outside the AG’s offices and put the fear of the PEOPLE in them.

Because that’s what the socialists do, to great effect.

Liberals have a one note song...

If dems wanted to kill all children under the age of five - and the rest of us objected they would compare it to people objecting to civil rights for blacks ...

Really - one note song - and a creepy totalitarian one at that...

“Matthews is a One Trick Pony.

You are correct. He plays the race card at every opportunity. Instead of any substantive debate he just calls his opponents racists.

Remember those standardized test questions of analogies that went: Hand is to glove, as Foot is to....and then there were choices such as a)halo b)cousin C)sock???
Well...Chris and the others who make these statements trying to connect EVERYTHING to either racism, the holocaust, segregation, JFK or McCarthy, must have really, really gotten very low scores on those tests!

The Kenyan-Pelosi DeathCare is polling badly.

The Kenyan and his minions whip out the race card toexplain his unpopularity.

America resents the blackmail.
