Left purging Comrade Matthews



The Left is purging Comrade Chris Matthews at MSNBC for being a counter-revolutionary and having impure thoughts.

His crime was saying Democrats could not stop Breadline Bernie after the Nevada caucuses.

Matthews said on the air, "I'm reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940. And the general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’ and Churchill says, ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It's over.'"

The network -- which has promoted a French Resistance against American President Donald John Trump for more than 3 years -- made Matthews beg forgiveness on television for a very remote reference to the Wehrmacht.

Matthews said, "Before getting into tonight's news, I want to say something quite important and personal. As I watched the one-sided results of Saturday's Democratic caucus in Nevada, I reached for a historical analogy -- and used a bad one. I was wrong to refer to event from the first days of World War II.

"Senator Sanders, I'm sorry for comparing anything from that tragic era in which so many suffered, especially the Jewish people, to an electorate result in which you were the well-deserved winner. This is going to be a hard-fought, heated campaign of ideas. In the days and weeks and months ahead, I will strive to do a better job myself of elevating the political discussion. Congratulations, by the way, to you Senator Sanders and to your supporters on a tremendous win down in Nevada."

No normal person would conclude that he called Sanders Hitler and his supporters Nazis.

Kevin D. Williamson at National Review explicitly did that to American President Donald John Trump and his supporters in March 2016 in a piece called The Father Fuhrer.

But Matthews? He was calling Democrats the French army, a far cry from anything Dipstick Williamson said about American President Donald John Trump and his supporters.

I shouldn't call Williamson a dipstick because dipsticks serve a purpose.

The apology was not enough. It never is. This is why you should never give one unless you sincerely are remorseful.

The Left has targeted Matthews, and is going the Me Too route. Liberal male TV newsmen must feel entitled to being creeps. Look how many have gone down. And the networks must know this because guys like Matt Lauer and Charles Rose carried on this behavior for decades.

Laura Bassett, a freelance journalist, spilled on Matthews for GQ.

She did not like Matthews challenging Elizabeth Warren, face-to-face, about her assertion that Mike Bloomberg told a pregnant woman to "kill it," meaning her baby. This argument totally undercuts the argument that killing a baby in the womb is a right, because if it were, then Bloomberg's suggestion would be akin to suggesting someone wrote a letter to the editor.

Of course, abortion is nothing like owning a gun, going to church, or any of our enumerated rights because abortion is wrong.

But Bassett was trying to bring Matthews down, and maybe she did.

She wrote, "In 2017, I wrote a personal essay about a much older, married cable-news host who inappropriately flirted with me in the makeup room a few times before we went live on his show, making me noticeably uncomfortable on air. I was afraid to name him at the time for fear of retaliation from the network; I’m not anymore. It was Chris Matthews. In 2016, right before I had to go on his show and talk about sexual-assault allegations against Donald Trump, Matthews looked over at me in the makeup chair next to him and said, 'Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?'"

It is creepy and I believe her. Boys, don't flirt with girls young enough to be your granddaughter.

She threw in some gossip, "A fellow cable-news pundit, who doesn’t want to be named for professional reasons, said Matthews invited her on to talk about misogyny in the Republican Party, telling her that he planned to draw a comparison to the ’60s ad-men show Mad Men. Right before going on air, he turned to her and asked 'whether Joan’s proportions are real,' referring to the body of a curvy character on the show, before seamlessly transitioning into a supposedly feminist segment. She was shaken, like I was. (At the time of publication, MSNBC had not yet responded to GQ with comment on either incident.)"

Does a thrill run up your leg thinking this may be the end of his career? If so, you may have a sign of an impending stroke.

I don't care that much about Matthews. What drew my attention in the article was 2 years ago, Bassett was upset enough to write about his behavior, but willing to take one for the team to preserve a fellow traveler. His apology signaled he is disposable. And so the campaign to bring him down is on.

  1. Matthews was untouchable two years ago as the charges slud (a little Dizzy Dean for y’all) off of him unlike anyone else.

    In the age of Breadline Bernie and the insane MSNBC stars, the dinosaur Matthews is no longer useful, even if he is as insane as the others on his hatred of PDJT. He’s just not a communist.

    1. Milton is correct. Latest ejemplo for me was Marie Barf on Fox last night, mano a mano with Katie Pavlich. 1, 2, 3, what’s Marie for fighting for? Don’t ask her, she don’t give a damn, The Black Jesus is still her man...

  4. Never ever apologize to far leftists for anything. They take it as affirmation that you did something horrible and attack all the more. The left doesn't believe in "forgiveness" unless it conveys some advantage to them. = Ralph Northam.

  11. I'm wondering. Did Tip O'neal's ghost pull a Marley and whop Matthews up the side of the head with a baseball bat? Not like Matthews to actually spout some common sense.

    Tip has probably been rolling over in his grave as to what is going on these days.

    I didn't agree with his ideas in most cases, but I never remember him being an Anti-American (at least openly) sot as what now is the Democratic poarty

  13. Here's what I don't get. Women these days pride themselves on being "badass", but Laura Bassett never had the gumption to tell Matthews to knock it off. She simply suffered in silence like some Victorian heroine.

  15. Laura Bassett hounds chrissie Mathews

    over dumb riddle.

    btw here's the answer to riddle.

    why haven't I fallen love with you?

    because you have a hair trigger for petulant frenzies, always wallowing in the deep end of the self pity pool, squealing and snorting and snuffling like a self righteous prig.

  16. I don't always comment but when I do I produce words for news anchors


    Tingle man being Unpersoned

    Chris Matthews says something stupid like he had a WW2 French Army Rifle for sale.

    His words were just like the Rifle, Never Shot but dropped once.

    In media we have to remember if you are not in Pre-Production meetings you see only the Sausage never how it's made.

    Since print media has longer lead times than a daily news show it's a fair bet that Tingles knew he was a the subject of a Post Weinstein #MeTooSexist hit job.

    So he either wanted to perform seppuku in a blaze of WW2 metaphor OR he was setup.

    Much like Bureaucrats, Production staff usually hang around after Anchor change or Presidential Admins. My guess is that Tingles had been a bit lax in his attendance of Pre-Prod and possibly had the Jr Jr Production Assistant to the Assistant talking in his ear that night.

    That Jr Jr person will be "reassigned" to another show quickly since they did the hit job right and Tingles will still be looking dopey.

    Dopey Tingle man DOES have a history of saying outlandish things that frequently border on stupid. It's a fair bet that most of the intelligent things he's said since 2008 have been Producer words.

    But why the Night of the Long Knives act?

    It's a Media Coup d'etat that's what's going on. Iger just exited, Weinstien just got convicted.

    You can just bet all the Harpies are getting ready to sing about real and imagined slights. MeToo was never about a hash tag it was about POWER. And you can bet there will be a few more WOMEN in media power positions after this bout of MeToo-ism

    Tingle man will only be the first head on a pike.


    Maybe that was Chris' play start a dumpster fire way way over there to distract his MeToo ish. Problems, but still my bet is someone pushed him off the ledge he was trying to verbally tightrope.

  21. I always remember when Erin Burnett was with MSLSD and came on Chrissie's show and he asked her to lean closer so he could gaze on her cleavage whilst he drooled. It was her last appearance on his show and pretty soon she decamped for CNN; when he's sent to Matt Lauer-land she'll talk about how she felt that night, I'm sure.

  22. >>> So Chris Matthews is objectifying women in a business that objectifies women; noting the propensity to get ahead by being attractive, dressing in form fitting outfits, high leg dresses or skirts, with the new trend among show host(esses) and guests to wear sleeveless outfits, even during winter months...As the old saw is still out there, "Sex sells.'

  23. Matthews was very painful to watch his contestant interrupting of guests and spitting all over his TV set. The person who had to clean his desk every post show is happy as hell.
