Matthews, Who Once Claimed Someone Will 'Jam a CO2 Pellet' in Rush Limbaugh's Head,
Townhall.com ^ | July 26, 2012 | Scott Whitlock

Chris Matthews, who once giddily speculated that "at some point, somebody's going to jam a CO2 pellet' into Rush Limbaugh's head that will "explode," on Thursday called for civility in the political discourse. Speaking of the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado, Matthews lectured, "We need to remember that we don't despise each other, but we do despise, maybe, the arguments that are thrown up by the other side."

Matthews, who, on another occasion, called Limbaugh "evil," conceded, "I know that sounds odd coming from me." He added, "I freely admit that there are people who really get to me, but I also know that if I found them lying in a ditch somewhere, say after say a traffic accident, I'd do everything I could do care for them."

On October 13, 2009, Matthews ranted about Limbaugh, "Rush Limbaugh is looking more and more like Mr. Big, and at some point somebody's going to jam a CO2 pellet into his head and he's going to explode like a giant blimp. That day may come. Not yet. But we'll be there to watch. I think he's Mr. Big, I think Yaphet Kotto. Are you watching, Rush?"

He later apologized.

On June 22, 2011, Matthews trashed Limbaugh as "evil" for spreading climate change "lies."

On June 10, 2011, the same man now calling for tolerance, bashed Newt Gingrich as "evil" and mocked the Republican as looking like "the devil."

A transcript of the July 26 segment can be found below:

5:58

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Let me finish tonight with this. I think all great events have great impacts. This country has never gotten over the Kennedy assassination. I haven't. And for younger Americans, especially them, 9/11 still haunts. Well, this horror in Aurora, Colorado, continues to penetrate our country's feelings. I think its had a stronger impact on this country than all the words thrown back and forth in this presidential election this campaign and this summer. I think people feel for each other in ways that don't come across in the political back and forth. They care about each other in ways that don't get displayed when we talk about red states and blue states. I think we need to hold on to those moments of national unity, like this one, that keep them in our minds and hearts when the debate heatens [sic] up and heightens.

We need to remember that we don't despise each other, but we do despise, maybe, the arguments that are thrown up by the other side. I know that sounds odd coming from me. I freely admit that there are people who really get to me, but I also know that if I found them lying in a ditch somewhere, say after say a traffic accident, I'd do everything I could do care for them. I know this. And you know this about yourself. We are all God's children. And that is a fact, one that we need to remind ourselves of. One that comes back to remind us in times of we take a hit, suffering a horror together like we've done ever since the day that Aurora, Colorado, flashed across the headlines and ventured into our hearts. That's Hardball for now. Thanks for being with us.

The problem with a liberal in these situations is that they talk like they actually think they mean it but they will be the first to include the murderer in the group hug.

I don’t buy it.

Strange that he says this today because Rush alluded to his old (expired)friendship with Chris on his show today and how suicidally partisan the left wing media has become.

A memorable radio moment occurred once, when Don Imus had Chris Matthews on the air as a guest. Matthews launched some kind of diatribe in the middle of it, and said something that had to be "bleeped" to keep it from going out over the airwaves.

I'll provide the details as I remember them:

IMUS: "What are you, nuts? Who are you to come on my radio show and swear like that?"

MATTHEWS: "I very sorry, Don. Sometimes I just lose my cool. Don't be offended -- I swear on my own show all the time."

IMUS: "Yeah, but I actually have an audience who listens to what goes over the airways on my show."

Au contraire, sissy boy, I despise you. I despise your ilk, your type, your stain upon the American fabric. I despise YOUR pResident, YOUR Demonrat Party and all its Socialists scum and parasites sucking the life blood of working Americans. I despise the fact that you exist and that I cannot rid my nation of your cancer under penalty of law, you worthless, steaming pantload.

“He’s a cradle Catholic...”

Not to mention a Catholic who thinks that Karl Marx was the annointed one.

IMHO

Matthews is an evil piece of ignorant leftist fecal material.

Krissy, it is time for you to go to the Soviet Union, ‘er, Russia, that you so love. And while on your way out, don’t let the studio door slam you in the ass.

Civility toward you is something you have to earn, you cannot dictate it...what’s’amatter, think you are President or somethin’?

This is like Hitler preaching brotherly love excluding, of course, the Jews, who plainly had it coming. Matthews is an insufferable piece of offal who should be ignored to death.

I think that he is getting scared . The reaction after the shooting in Colorado are 180 degrees out of line of what they should be according to the Democrat/leftist mindset .

He can read how folks are finally understanding in ever increasing numbers that people are figuring out that the police not only don’t have a duty to protect YOU but they CAN’T protect you .

To few cops to many people spread out over to mush space with to many rights. It is this realization that scares the leftist control freaks like Chris Matthews.

He is getting the idea that when the economy goes the of Greece’s economy that those in the moocher class will threaten to riot & the rest of us will say try to burn my neighborhood & die combined with the means to back it up & that scares not just Mr. Matthews but our political class as well in both parties.

He ought to be scared. His whole world will implode.

The nicest thing I can say about Matthews is that he is both uninformed and juvenile in his thinking, and I use the term "thinking" with a lot of latitude.

“This is like Hitler preaching brotherly love”

Just the point I was going to make. Their side always tries to take the higher moral plane. They promise to lower the rhetoric by eschewing inflammatory words like ‘target’ and ‘cross hairs’ while still bringing a gun to the fight.

It never lasts. They are hypocrites to the 99th power.

It’s destroy, defame, and demolish. Lies and more lies.
And it’s always personal.

Sweet syrupy words from this creep today. Tomorrow it will be all decibels and spittle.

“the police not only don’t have a duty to protect YOU but they CAN’T protect you .”

Amazing how society has flipped.
I read here recently that in England in the early 1900’s the cops - bobbies - just carried a whistle.

When the bobby saw a crime in progress, he would blow his whistle and the neighbors would come running with their guns to apprehend the perp.
