Skip to comments.Enough, Chris Matthews. Stop Lying About Michele Bachmannís Iowa Speech
Posted on 01/28/2011 12:48:14 PM PST by GVnana
MSNBCs Chris Matthews has gone on a three-day Bachmann-bashing binge over a speech she gave in Iowa last weekend. In the speech, Rep. Bachmann pointed out that the scourge of slavery was a horrible chapter in our countrys history, but we should give credit to our forebears who worked tirelessly to eradicate slavery. As an example, she offered up John Quincy Adams and his relentless efforts on behalf of the abolitionist movement. Here is an excerpt from her speech and Mr. Matthews obnoxious assault on her and his guest:

No, I think Chrissy Tingle secretly has the hots for Michelle Bachmann.
They exist only because they outrage us - let em both go bark at the moon. Means nothin'.
The tingle in his leg has now gone up his *ss.
They go after anyone who dares to dress down their weak leader. They can’t stand anyone - especially a woman - making obama look like the wimpy, inept leader that he is.
Crissy is the “Howard Stern” of TV. His directives are to shock and agitate. No matter about the truth, just get people talking. I was in radio for 25 years. I can tell.
I guess we never would have freed the slaves if Chrissie Matthews hadn’t taken charge!
Thank you, Chrissie, you deserve the Nobel Peace Prize for all your efforts on behalf of America’s slaves!
Uh, what’s that you say? Some kind of problem with the time line?
Chrissie still has not got over election night when Michelle Bachman made a complete a$$ out of him. He kept asking her if she was in a trance because he could not get her off message. Was really funny.
I would be shocked to hear he actually swung that way.
Of course, if he did, it would have to be for a strong forceful one (who could kick his a** without breaking a sweat).
Yes, I remember that... Michelle B. gave Crissy a good zinger about the tingly feeling up his leg... He’s been p-o’d ever since...
I am trying - without any success - to think of a woman who couldn’t kick his butt.
One unexamined fact, by him and others who are attracted to attacking our Founding Fathers, is that the cotton gin was invented after the Constitution was ratified. The passage where a slave is counted as 60% of a person is contradicted by everything else found in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Slavery was doomed to extinction in 1788, (making the compromise much more reasonable) because the institution was not economically viable at the time. Eli Whitney made slavery pay and made cotton king.
Consider just two examples of how people rely upon premeditated ignorance of historic fact to denigrate George Washington and others. In Washington's case, he was ostracized by many other plantation owners for treating slaves as human beings, because he always tipped his hat before them and answered their greetings. He also refused to allow the typical plantation owner hospitality of inviting a male guest to review the young women in slave quarters to choose which one he would take to his quarters and rape that evening.
People like Matthews are wrong. George Washington did work tirelessly. Matthews and others demonstrate the comic book understanding of slavery now popular.
I never understand why everyone on that damn show turns purple instead of laughing loudly. On the few occasions that it has happened (as when the beautious Ms. Bachmann asked him about his tingle) Matthews goes ballistic and makes more of a fool of himself than ever. And boy, does that creep hold a grudge.
Of course, I don’t understand why anyone goes on that show in the first place, lol!
Mr. Tingles has morphed into a caricature of himself. He’s like an over-the-top comic actor like the Ted Baxter newscaster in the old Mary Tyler Moore show or John Cleese (?) in Monty Python and Fawlty Towers. Clown, buffoon, carnival barker. . . . I guess that’s the ticket for Left Wing punditry success.
I would like some documentation on this. I seriously doubt GW was ostracized by any other plantation owners, at least not after the war. He was far and away the most respected man in the country, and anyone showing him disrespect would have been himself ostracized, if not challenged by the multitude of Washington admirers and shot dead.
He also refused to allow the typical plantation owner hospitality of inviting a male guest to review the young women in slave quarters to choose which one he would take to his quarters and rape that evening.
While this no doubt happened, I doubt it was "typical" or openly practiced. Harriet Beecher Stowe, for instance, appears to have missed it.
You have something resembling evidence.
“A little song, a little dance..”
BTW, you are correct that Washington worked tirelessly against slavery. However, the work he did was to be able to free his own slaves on his death, not to abolish slavery throughout the country or even Virginia.
Michelle used a poor choice of words.
I doubt it. Not after his remarks regarding Obama.
