Chris Matthews, the ultra-liberal pinhead on MSNBC, continues to baffle with his nonsensical statements and his water-carrying for the Obama administration and progressive causes. On his show this week he blasted Tea Party, regular Americans like you and me, accusing us of racism for opposing the horrific failure of Obamacare.
Said Matthews, “I wonder if the Tea Party is reverting to their old ways of considering black people as only 3/5ths of a person!”
Now this is a ridiculous comment and it doesn’t much matter that we as conservatives have pointed out the history behind this reference, the so called 3/5ths clause in the Constitution, which allowed slaves to be counted in the south as 3/5ths of a person for the purpose of representation in the House of Representatives pre-Civil War. It doesn’t matter that this was a compromise, though a bad one, that allowed the south to count their slaves in order to get more representation in the congress, meanwhile depriving black Americans their rights and denying them representation, real representation in their government. It doesn’t matter that this compromise from northern legislators in the Continental Congress was aimed at limiting the power of the south and restrict the spread of slavery, a horrible stain on the American Legacy. It doesn’t matter.
What does matter is that the Progressives won the budget battle, the Obamacare debate, and the government shut down fiasco when the GOP leadership caved and Chris Matthews in an effort to win the support of his three remaining viewers and to boost is flagging ratings took a victory swipe at the people he despises most, you and me, with a despicable racist and historically erroneous comment.
I find this interesting as far as politics goes. The left, usually when losing an argument, will attack conservatives and call them racists. This wins big points for black Americans who watch the pundits because they feel they have been treated badly and are entitled. When black Americans, those who are informed about the real history of the left, speak cogently and accurately about the harm they have caused to the African American, the left attempts to destroy them personally and politically. Look at former Congressman Allen West, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson as examples.
There is another example more recent that I want to point out. It’s personal because it directly demonstrates Matthews’s true attitude towards black Americans. You will remember that prior to the last election contest between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, a conservative black woman, blogger Kira Davis, went to attend a live taping of the Chris Matthews show with friends. Those friends included other prominent bloggers from the Brietbart organization, all of whom were white. Davis was ejected from the live venue by security thugs hired by MSNBC in the most shocking manner. Her offense, being a black conservative carrying a pro-Romney sign.
When it comes right down to it, people like Matthews don’t really like black people and don’t want to hear from them, otherwise the Kira Davis’s of the world wouldn’t be considered a threat. They don’t respect black conservatives because they don’t support the false narrative that the evil Republicans are a bunch of racists who what to re-introduce slavery.
The Facts speak for themselves. The Democratic Party has a long history of racism and suppression of the black vote. The Republicans have had a long history of championing the Civil Rights movement, from the very beginning of this country. That is why Civil Rights Icon and Lincoln adviser Frederick Douglas famously said, “I am a die in the wool Republican!”
I think today his party would embarrass Mr. Douglas, but I don’t think he would be embarrassed by the Tea Party, which embraces a lot of the principles that he advocated during his lifetime. It’s too bad that the GOP leadership caves into pressure, but I think the Tea Party is the infusion of influence that will eventually take over the conservative movement and Republican party and turn things around for the country, it will just take more time.
As for Chris Matthews and liberal political pundits of his ilk, shame on you! You are a true racist for bad-mouthing black conservatives the way that you do. You don’t shame them, you shame yourself, and someone should sock you in your big fat libelous mouth.
