The malignant malice of Chris Matthews
American Thinker ^ | August 30, 2010 | Jeannie DeAngelis

Posted on 08/30/2010 9:08:43 AM PDT by jazusamo

MSNBC political pundit Chris Matthews was so smitten with the President's speechifying that stirring electrical currents physically manifested in his body. The separation-of-church-and-state commentator admitted he "cried over an Obama speech" and "compared him to Jesus." 

Completely infatuated, Matthews openly gushed when Barack spoke: "I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often."

Apparently, Chris's tingle didn't cease with his legs; based on the MSNBC anchor's pre-Glen Beck rally comments, the current traveled straight to his race-baiting brain. 

The night prior to the Glen Beck-hosted gathering, Chris Matthews felt it was his patriotic duty to spew malice and spin the "Restoring Honor" Lincoln Memorial event into what he defined as a "nightmare."

Americans gathering to peacefully pray, exercise freedom of speech and laud the greatness of our nation are being depicted by Chris Matthews as "Little right-wing boys and little right-wing girls joining hands and singing praise for Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin." Matthews' tingly hero worship explains the MSNBC commentator projecting juvenile idolatry on hundreds of thousands of peacefully assembled Americans who were doing anything but worshiping Beck and Palin.

Reporting on the event, an acerbic media stunned by the large, God-centered turnout repeatedly played the race card and underscored the fact that few minorities were spotted in the crowd.  In the run-up to the rally, hypocritical news organizations even lowered themselves to negatively grilling "Restoring Honor" speakers like Martin Luther King's niece Alveda King, the unspoken implication being that Black Americans are traitors if choosing to speak anywhere besides the Al Sharpton "We-Alone-Own-MLK rally."

The left cultivates division and then complains about a racial divide.  Liberals stir up strife and then claim that minorities avoid gatherings like the "Restoring Honor" event, which was attended by hundreds of thousands of people who, regardless of race, treasure the values Martin Luther King espoused.

Chris Matthews' lies and innuendos demonstrate that the anchor believes the left has cornered the market on understanding the gravity of the injustices Black Americans suffered during a shameful period in our nation's history. Pundits like Matthews forget that just two short years ago, a largely Caucasian nation ecstatically elected America's first African-American president.

Of late, the majority is coming to the stark realization Obama's policies are bad for America, not his race.  As a result, a colorblind electorate that catapulted Barack into the Oval Office is now being accused of racism because of efforts to restore lost honor and foster national harmony.

Presently, the left is frantically rooting around in a political dumpster for their last grasp of discordant power. Race baiters are emerging from the farthest recesses of a refuse heap with a crumpled, stained race card firmly in hand. Racial strife is the last great hope of the likes of political pundits whose true "nightmare" is the exercise of Constitutional freedoms giving rise to the dream of which Martin Luther King spoke and the realization that that "" is hindered only by those like Chris Matthews, who fear its unifying power.

I guess the event was a “nightmare” to some — e.g., our evil president and his accomplices in Congress. The devil gets a bit nervous with so many good people around.

Why this fascination with Matthews. He’s a minor leaguer who doesn’t deserve any attention.

I wonder if these same news organizations scanned the crowd at Sharpton's event to find out how many white people were there. I'm just askin'.....

Those dimwitted libtards who deny individual natural rights in order to surrender, violate, or plunder the life, freedom, happiness, and property of others will end up unhappy and resentful if the society remains free and the government remains just.

I don’t normally watch MSNBC, but in situations like this event, watching Mathews, Olberwoman, et al. have a coronary can be fun.

Well said, Matthews and those of his ilk cannot flourish in a free and just society.

Excellent imagery. And accurate.

Sadly, the tingle that ran up little Chrissie’s leg during the Obama campaign went all the way up to his head, blowing his tiny vestigial brain out his left ear. Given the many times Chrissie has gladly taken it in the ear for his pals on the left, the size of that orifice made the blowout inevitable. The scar reveals that he DID have a transplant. Unfortunately, it was the cryogenically preserved brain of Lyndon Baines Johnson and turned out to be even smaller than the original organ, probably because – as with nearly ALL Democrats -- it had never been used.

Julian Jaynes said that humans have an innate hunger for gods (and God) because for millennia they absolutely believed in the existence of gods or God.

Obama seems to have recognized this powerful need and has taken full advantage of it by casting himself as the secular and muslim messiah (I don't know how Obama, as a basically secular person, knew such a need existed).

The fact that Matthews and his fellow atheists are willing to accept Obama as their messiah is why they are so enthralled IMHO. However, since Obama doesn't have any real messianic abilities, I would expect that there will be an eventual backlash.

So far, Obama has avoided a backlash by redirecting his followers attention to those who oppose him and blaming Bush. But eventually that is bound to fail.

I’m too lazy to look up the video, but if you saw The Chris Matthews Show on Saturday it was the funniest, 30 minutes of liberal delusion I have seen for a long time.

I fear Matthews might get a 'thrill' out of us not liking him... Liberals love to huddle together in victim-hood...

Makes me wonder if his sexual appetites tend toward whips and chains...

As they move further and further to the left, they become near parodies of themselves, and thus, more irrelevant. As a political junkie, during the Clinton era and the the 2000 election, Hardball was a must watch for me every night. I haven’t looked at it, or MSNBC in 5 years, and frankly, don’t think we shoudl even bother worrying about what they say/think. Every time I see a thread posted here about, for example, “The Ed show”..I ask myself..why? and who could possibly care?

Isn’t it wonderful that even Matthews saw fit to make sure even the few viewers that he has would tune in on Saturday to find out what all the fuss was about! I wonder how many of those viewers, for the first time, realized that it was Matthews who was wrong?

It would really be interesting to see the viewership results over the next few days to see how many of those people also tune in to Beck’s radio or TV shows to see what he does on those. LOL

It was pretty unwatchable during the 08 campaign. Hardball, I mean. But you should check it out now— it’s good for a laugh.

For example, Chris Matthews is now asking guests “Could the Republicans win TOO MANY seats for their own good?”
