Posted on 10/22/2012 5:41:32 PM PDT by markomalley
Talking to two fellow liberals on Monday, an unhinged Chris Matthews trashed conservatives and Republicans who opposes Barack Obama's birth control policies as "Nazis." Matthews smeared, "Is it in society's interests for [a young woman's] boss to be able to be the birth control Nazi to decide who gets it and who doesn't?"
Matthews has previously railed against calling one's political opponents Nazis. On April 28, 2010, the liberal host ranted, "But let's agree, can we, to drop the Nazi stuff?" On Monday, Matthews invented a hypothetical woman: "A young woman who works in her 20s or 30s and is not ready to have a child, that's her decision, I think we all agree on that. She wants birth control. Isn't it in society's interest for her to get that as part of her health care?"
The Hardball anchor didn't explain how "society" was keeping women from obtaining birth control or whether institutions, (including religious organizations) should be forced to pay for it.
Talking to feminist Gloria Steinem and Obama aide Stephanie Cutter Matthews hyperbolically added, "Do you hear the 1950s in Romney's voice?
A transcript of the October 22 exchange can be found below:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: A young woman who works in her 20s or 30s and is not ready to have a child, that's her decision, I think we all agree on that. She wants birth control. Isn't it in society's interest for her to get that as part of her health care?
STEPHANIE CUTTER: Absolutely.
MATTHEWS: Is it in society's interests for her boss to be able to be the birth control Nazi to decide who gets it and who doesn't?
STEPHANIE CUTTER: No, it's not. Women take contraception for a lot of different reasons. It's not just birth control. It has to do with preventing cancer and other diseases. It's a preventative medication. That's why the Affordable Care Act includes it as part of preventative measures for women and that's why insurance companies are now required to provide contraception for women with no out of pocket costs. It does not make sense to put employers in charge of that decision. Women should be able to make that decision. If their insurance plan offers contraception, which by law now they have to with no out of pocket costs, that's between women and their insurance companies and it should be in the women's court to make that decision, not employers. So, if I work at any fast food restaurant, they're making the decision about whether I have access to contraception, absolutely not.
MATTHEWS: Do you hear the 1950s in Romney's voice? I hear it all the time. It's this, "Women have children. They got to go home to feed the kids."
GLORIA STEINEM: I'm not sure he's up to the 1950s.
What a moron.
It’s not about “who gets it” it is about “who pays for it”
The stench of desperation...
If we hear Matthews has a brain tumor, I would not be surprised.
A millions years ago, he was a good guy.
I think he even substituted for Limbaugh a few times.
I think he was on eof the first Soros promised a pony.
Good thing I’m not God.
I believe the Bible teaches plainly that “birth control” displeases God.
God’s greatest blessing to the living is, “I will multiply thy seed.”
God’s greatest curse to the living is, “I will cut off your generations.”
We’ve got people rejecting the blessing and embracing the curse.
Hey, as far as I’m concerned, let the leftists select themselves out of the gene pool. They’ll be doing us all a favor. Like I said, it’s a good thing I’m not God.
I know typing is iffy sometimes, but don’t get that.
However, I am pretty sure I get what you meant.
Pony, that’s funny.
“Unhinged Chris Matthews.” You hear that a lot. It’s almost as if “Unhinged” is his first name.
MATTHEWS IS FOR KILLING THAT HARDBALL IN A WOMANS STOMACH..
Not a nice guy...
Too bad Ma Matthews did not feel the same way about abortion little Chrissy does.
Um....I guess no one told this dumbass that it was the NAZIs who WANTED birth control.
is he admitting libtards view abortion is birth control?
or now if you don’t want society to pay for birth control you’re a nazi!?
if you do you’re a socialist libtard, i guess, then.
Call a pro-death, pro-rape feminist a “feminazi” and the word police will come down on you. Call a Democrat at Socialist or a Commie sympathizer and you’ll be accused of whipping up hysteria. Call a Republican a Nazi and no one in the media will care or dispute it.
If only we could go back to the 50’s. Ok, I’d want to take a few things back with me, but oh how I miss those days.
As for Matthews, he is very mentally ill.
Chrissy still has hopes that he too might be able to have an abortion someday. Untilt that day comes, he will do everything possible to ensure the atrocity remains legal.
Is it in the public interest that said public be required to pay for birth control for others’ recreational sex?
