Chris Matthews: Every single “teabagger” in America is white

posted at 7:37 pm on January 5, 2010 by Allahpundit

Yeah, I know, nothing new for Tingles. But Brooks is taking a beating in the other tea-party thread so I thought I’d give him a break by reminding you that accusing tea partiers of having issues with the “educated class” is actually pretty mild compared to the usual insinuations.

Also, in fairness, employees of MSNBC are probably contractually obligated to call them “teabaggers.”

I’m giving you two clips, actually. The second is short, but an essential — and timely — gloss on the first.

Update: Remember, MSNBC’s been known to edit video in order to obscure unhelpful facts that contradict its racial narratives, so maybe Matthews is innocent here. Maybe his problem is simply that he’s getting his info from … MSNBC.

Contrary to the “Rush Limbaugh” simplified world of Liberal/Conservative buckets, your labels mean little. While you are cheering for your “Team” to win, you fail to understand what has made this country great.

First, why do liberals always play the “don’t label me, I’m not a liberal” game? Why are they always ashamed to admit they are liberals? they always claim to be “independents” who have voted for republicans in the past. It’s such a sad and tired gimmick.

Second, I love to hear liberals try and claim they know what makes the country great. What – gov’t? No, individual rights and limited government made this country great. The libs are trying to make this country into no individual rights and the government controls everything (health care, cap and trade, ownership of automakers, banks, and growing gov’t to the point where it is the #1 employer).

That is hardly making the country great. that is instead what will make a great country into a failed nanny state identical to France or Belgium, where 10-15% unemployment is the norm rather than a bad year and you have to wait a year or longer for a simple surgery or other medical treatment.

Explain decider what you think made this country great. Was it individuals seeking to make their own fortune or was it gov’t?

Anyone who calls freedom-loving Americans “teabaggers” reveals himself to be a shitebagger. In Matthews case, we already knew him by his dimwitted deeds and his endless stream of verbal shite.

Next time Sharpton or Jackson lead a mob through the streets I would like to see the Media state that their concerns were not valid because all the protestors were black or of color. Seems like it should be ok, since they are doing it to whites. Because a person is white somehow they are not entitled to first ammendment rights or their opinions are not valid?

I’d say the term ‘teabagger’ is most descriptive of Chris Matthews’ attitude towards the Obama, along with such terms as ‘swallow not spit’ and ‘facial’.

Fox News is all about ratings. Like Rush Limbaugh, Fox News is able to walk the fine line of blatant racism with race baiting to gain ratings. Notice how many stories on Fox News feature Black faces. Notice how many Blacks Glen Beck shows vs. Whites. Race sells.

Here is something that I found interesting – bordering on startling.

NPR did a poll (October) – collecting 2,111,063 votes. The question: Is Fox News fair and balanced?

87% (1,843,067) voted that Fox was fair and balanced because it asks questions others don’t and the White House should be able to handle them.

This may be old news – but it bears repeating.

Worth repeating… in case you missed it.
