Chris Matthews: 'Racial hatred' drives support for Romney on right
The Hill ^ | 10/22/2012 | Alexander Jaffe 10/22/2012

Posted on 10/23/2012 12:14:41 AM PDT by italyconservative

Liberal pundit Chris Matthews explained Mitt Romney's support among conservatives, despite the candidate shifting toward the center on a number of issues, as a product of "racial hatred."

Sorry Chrissy, the race card trick will not work this time! Go back to anger management class with Ed “Sgt.” Schultz and Rachel Madcow!

I don’t hate Obama as a human being.

I hate his policies! I welcomed his election in 2008 as a new chapter in our country’s history and I wished him well then.

No - the reason he is losing isn’t because of racism, its because his policies haven’t worked and have made many Americans worse off.

Chris Matthews’ attack below the belt upon conservatives is quite frankly despicable!

January 27, 2010, Chris Matthews on Obama’s State of the Union speech:

MATTHEWS: I was trying to think about who he was tonight. It's interesting: he is post-racial, by all appearances. I forgot he was black tonight for an hour. You know, he's gone a long way to become a leader of this country, and passed so much history, in just a year or two. I mean, it's something we don't even think about. I was watching, I said, wait a minute, he's an African-American guy in front of a bunch of other white people. And here he is president of the United States and we've completely forgotten that tonight — completely forgotten it. I think it was in the scope of his discussion. It was so broad-ranging, so in tune with so many problems, of aspects, and aspects of American life that you don't think in terms of the old tribalism, the old ethnicity. It was astounding in that regard. A very subtle fact. It's so hard to talk about. Maybe I shouldn't talk about it, but I am. I thought it was profound that way.

I don’t hate Obama as a human being.

Actually, I do.

I spent almost all of my adult life fighting Communism and Obama is a dyed in the wool commie. He thinks he is smarter than anyone else and that he should be the one to tell our Country how to live every aspect of our lives.

It is actually worse than that. He is a dictator who gets a high by not only running others' lives but in jailing, torture, and murder. This no hyperbole. That is where Obama's type always lead. History is replete with the likes of his ilk. They do not have an ounce of personal restraint nor morale values and thus human life means nothing to them. Starvation and the murder of those who disagree with them is always warranted. He is no different than Lenin, Stalin, or Pol Pot, he is just not as far along the road they traveled and our wonderful Country is a tougher nut to crack.

Yes, I hate him as he is a tool of the Devil himself.

You can only be a half racist and hate only one half of him. Now, if you hate all of him, I guess you hate whitey too. Such a dilemma.

Evidently Chris Matthews is more than a wee bit racially charged.

He’s projecting his own racial bias, because he reasons that if he has one, everyone must.

Chris, I was planning to support Herman Cain. If I was willing to support him, then how in the Sam Hell is it racist to disagree with Obama?

If I can agree with a Black man, I should certainly be able to disagree with a man that is half-Black.

Get your own house in order Whitey.

Is leaving Eric Holder in as Attorney General 'post-racial'?

This isn't about race, never has been.

It is about a clash of cultures, American values of individualism and accomplishment vs tribal values of collectivism and envy.

Strangely, Chris may be correct: Obama’s racial hatred for WASPs, Jews, blacks who think and behave like his grandfather (Obama called his grandfather a “house n****r” in his “book”) and others DOES drive people to Romney.

So the racial hatred is primarily FROM Obama and his ilk and that hatred drives people TOWARD the other viable candidate.

First, he ain’t black.
He’s muslim—which now by all acconts IS a race.

Given their performance over the last fourteen hundred years or so, muslims are VERY, VERY hateful indeed.

So, yeah—I guess this is RACE HATRED after all.

Anyway, I hate him.

Just because you are half black and have screwed blacks over more than any other group for the last four years, doesn't make you post racial.

Somebody who doesn't care what people call them, like Rush or Coulter, needs to call the democrats for what they are. They are doing to the American poor what the government did for the American Indian. They are building a reservation, filling it with semi-willing people and giving them handouts until they forget how to care for themselves. The war on poverty has spent trillions of dollars and the result has been that we have as many or more poor as we had before. If anything the government has made it harder, not easier, to escape that class. There are only two possible explanations and I think both are correct. The Democrats don't understand human nature, but they also want the poor as a permanent voting block.

The democrats were the plantation party and they still are the plantation party.

Sure, Chrissie, and that racial hatred is also the reason a majority on the right were ready to support Herman Cain before his woman problems, and also the reason most on the right hope to see Allen West rise in the party.

Excellent post, start to finish. I hate him too, and don't GAF what libs think of it. It's because he's a CommieMuzzie, but I don't have to explain my reasons anyhow. They can go ahead and think it's because I'm racist...tired of all this pussyfootin' around and PC bullcrap. I'll think however I choose to think, on EVERY issue, and stand by it.

I have a client who’s a black civil rights lawyer and works as some kind of dem election official...just the other night she was getting into her “republicans just want Romney because he’s white”, tirade, and I reminded her that conservatives LOVE Allen West and he was a likely presidential hope in the future...and she just about blew her stack. “Right wing radical trying to destroy everything black people have fought for” etc., to her and the people she works with he’s almost public enemy number one.

They’re very threatened by any black man who shucks his chains, especially a leader like West that gets his drive by bringing people together rather than drive wedges between.

Eye opening conversation.

“I don’t hate Obama as a human being.”

I don't either, but I have very, very little doubt that he is at his core a bit of a racist. You can't sit and listen to ‘black liberation theology’ for all those years, and have mentors like Frank Marshall Davis, and not in some way be affected. Beyond that, his actions and his words underscore his ideology - and it is an ideology that sees villains and victims. This ideological view fuels class warfare and racial misunderstanding, and in my opinion hinders us as a society from working together to find solutions.

As for Chrissy, he is typical of white suburban pseudo-intellectual ‘progressives’ who think they understand race, but have very little personal experience with it and generally no clue what they're talking about.

I've seen racism, from both sides, up close and personal - not just from reading or from some university class. Friends were shot, there were riots two blocks from home when I was a child, and I literally can't walk where I grew up without significant risk of being killed. That said, what this has left me with is honestly a balanced perspective, without prejudice. To the contrary, my experiences have led me to think of race as a really stupid issue perpetuated by people who either have an agenda, or who refuse to grow up. Chrissy seems to fit both criteria - although he probably thinks of himself as incredibly ‘informed’.
