MSNBC is the best thing that ever happened to conservatism

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

As much as MSNBC may drive Glenn, Pat, and Stu crazy, there’s no denying it’s quite possibly one of the greatest things to ever happen to the conservative movement. Chris Matthews, in particular, makes some of the most nonsensical statements of all-time almost daily. If that doesn’t expose the world (or their 10 viewers) to the idiocies of the left, what will?

For example, Chris Matthews’ only argument against any criticism conservatives give President Obama is racism:

Don’t like Obamacare? Chris Matthews thinks you’re racist.

Don’t like the way he’s handling Libya? Chris Matthews thinks you’re racist.

Don’t want to pay hire taxes? Chris Matthews thinks you’re racist.

Think unemployment numbers aren’t accurate? You guessed it: Chris Matthews thinks you’re racist.

Following a statement by Donald Trump on unemployment numbers, Chris Matthews made one of his most ridiculous statements yet:

“Everything he’s done is clean as a whistle. He’s never not only broken any law. He’s never done anything wrong. The perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy. And it’s impossible for me to believe they would have said the same thing about a Walter Mondale or a Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton. There’s an ethnic piece to this…Trump says the president is, quote, monkeying with the unemployment numbers. It just keeps going on over and or again.”

That must be it — blatant racism. It can’t be that the unemployment numbers are worth taking a better look at, or that, when reporting on them, the media should take into consideration the declining number of people included in the participation rate. It’s just racism.

Chris Matthews, of course, hasn’t bothered to site any facts that support his claims of racism, aside from the phrase “monkeying the numbers.” You’ll also notice he hasn’t taken a better look at the numbers. He isolates and ridicules — classic Saul Alinksy.

Matthews was joined in this segment by Jonathan Alter, who made just as ridiculous of a claim about Trump’s ridiculous stunt for the president to release his college transcripts.

“I think it’s rank racism,” Alter claimed. “You know, sometimes people on the right get very upset when people on the left charge racism but, you know, shuck and jive, that’s like talking about watermelon, or, you know, talking about Jews are greedy or the Irish are drunk or whatever. These are racist tropes and we need to call them what they are. And I actually think ‑‑ at least implicitly Trump was playing on racism today with his ridiculous stunt demanding Obama’s college transcripts.”

In other words: when Republicans want to see Barack Obama’s sealed college transcripts, it’s racism; when the Democrats scrutinize George W. Bush’s, it’s just good politics.

Watch the full exchange here:

Stu noted that while the argument about the transcripts is ridiculous and not the path to an election victory, he highly doubts anyone thinks the president didn’t get good grades.

“But beyond that I would bet you with almost ‑‑ outside of any of the candidates that we’ve seen recently over the past several elections, the most likely guy to have really good grades with annoyingly liberal college professors is Barack Obama. He said himself he was befriending the Marxist professors,” Stu said. “Do you think this guy got bad grades? He didn’t get bad grades.”

But that’s the storyline Matthews and friends are sticking to: that conservatives only want to see them because he’s black and could only stay in school because of Affirmative Action.


There’s absolutely nothing else that could be interesting in the transcripts, like who his teachers were or what classes he took — it has to be racism.

It’s the same argument, over and over again from MSNBC. But that’s not how they see it. According to Chris Matthews, if you think they’re repeating the same thing over and over again, you’re “dead wrong and you’re dangerous.”

Or at least that’s what we think he meant to say. Like the “brilliant” broadcaster that Chris Matthews is, this is what he actually said:

Matthews: “Anybody out there by the way, thinks we’re for saying things that’s over and over again, and if you think we’re saying things, you’re dead wrong and you’re dangerous.”

“MSNBC is the best that I think has ever happened to conservatives,” Stu said after hearing that.

“I mean, seriously you could give them credit for at least 10 or 15 of the 65 seats in the last election. That’s how much damage they do to the liberal movement. Continue. Stay on the air. Keep going, MSNBC, despite the fact that no one watches, just keep doing what you’re doing.”

    Ahhh. Chrissy Mathews.  The gift that keeps on giving.  It’s a toss-up which idiot does not understand that a closed mouth gathers no foot.  Is it Joe biten or chrissy mathews?  Both are senile. 

    • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

      Both are prime candidates for the ads of “Liberalism: A preventalble disease, be a conservative, do your own research, support freedom and small government and our Constitution.’

      All joking of mine aside, I see people as Matthews and remember the end days of the third reich and the films shown then. The true fanatics had the same look at Matthews, and stood to the end game believing they would win.

        Matthews is like “Bagdad Bob”.

        • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

          The main difference is ‘Bagdad Bob” worked for a madman and a tyrant; Chris Matthews supports a madman and a wannabe tyrant.

  • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Chris Matthews has to be a racist then – he howls that everyone else is a racist when you disagree with him, the democrats, and Obama. So it shows he is a racist to anyone, and everyone who will not tow the party line.

    Of course, Matthews is just insane, so what else can we expect.

  • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Chris Matthews – shown the picture of Nancy Pelosi, Napoletano and Hillary ‘Au Natural’ and his poor mind snapped completely.

    As a small business owner, I could never afford to have someone as Dumb as Chris Matthews, I would go bankrupt in no time…  He is an Overpaid Court Jester (that is a narcistic racist).  And fools like him want to shut down America, they will be the first to be taken down/out…

    You know Chris, yes there are many people who have opposing opinions of Sarah Palin, but one thing can be said about you – everyone thinks you’re an asshole.

      He must be a Catholic, eh ZEROGON? That’s right, I haven’t forgotten our discussion in respone to the other article. I just haven’t had the time to spend on a proper rebuttal, but it’s coming. Meanwhile, it’s interesting to see you using foul language after your repeated sanctimonious proclamations of piety and relatively unique understanding of scripture declaring that Catholics were the “whore of Babylon” from the book of Revelations. I admit, I slip up from time to time myself, but this level of crude speech from the likes of you is still rather surprising. And what was that comment about in the other article about “whites” being suckered or something like that?

      You essentially believe Catholicism is an abomination and you’re concerned about whites (“Anglo-Saxons” to be specific) trying too hard to appear enlightened? Is there something you’d like to disclose? And if that’s how you feel about Catholics, perhaps you’d like to disclose how you feel about Mormons. How do you feel about The Church of Latter Day Saints? The Amish? Quakers? Greek Orthodox? Russian Orthodox? Baptists? Pentacostals? Wesleyans? Methodists? Episcopalians? Lutherans? Unitarians? How many Christian groups are the “real” enemy?

      You know, I have no problem getting along in the world with people that I disagree with. I’ve worked with and made friends with people that I could hardly find common ground with. But that’s partially out of necessity and because I believe that the best way to convert people to follow the Golden Rule is by example. Here though, we’re on the Internet, and this is straight up idea vs. idea, concept vs. concept. You’re not going to get away with associating a massive and important group among Christians with the forces of evil and just move on from it. I’m not letting it go, and I’m not going to get along on the Internet, just for the sake of getting along.

      The fact that we’re both opposed to Obama doesn’t make us allies. We’re most definitely not allies when you vilify Catholics on a fundamental level.

         I’m not sure which one I prefer more, be it a Mars Bar, or Good and Plenty, I do know that to much of either one, tends to turn a persons stomach.

        As far as giving you an answer to your inquire, I have no idea if the top anchor on MSNBC – Chris Mathews, is of any particular faith. Although, I have noticed over the years, the man more than worships Obama – so I suppose he is of the Liberal faith. That’s the best I can do for you on the subject.

        I ‘ll be waiting with eager anticipation, for your “proper rebuttal” .

        The Pope, who instructs or deceives Catholics, is the whore, who rides upon a great beast, this subject is thoroughly discussed throughout the book of Revelation. God has patiently proclaimed that message now for over 70 years – all men and women on the planet should know by this late date, what God is discussing here. Its not my fault, nor do I particularly care, but, judging by your thin-skinned response above, you certainly show that you would rather follow a man who looks righteous, verses, following God. So If you will not listen to God, who am I to set you straight – would there be even a slight chance in hell, that I could possibly change the direction of your wayward thinking – I highly doubt it, but don’t let that discourage your rebuttal in any way, that would spoil all the fun we’re having now wouldn’t it.

        I don’t hide behind words – actually, I simply understand what God is talking about – does that make me perfect – hardly, “let him, who is without sin cast the first stone” – but, there is only one truth concerning God and this same God admonishes us to prove him at his word – all of it – the Bible. It is He who made the pointed and ever so bold statement, saying, “the whole world is deceived” – those words can be found in Rev. 12:9 and they have real meaning. God means exactly what he inspired to be written. So this world we live in today, is 100% deceived – and yes, that includes all organized religion. That means – yes again – organized religion is at enmity with God. Hows that for disclosure – God knows those who worship him, for they do so in spirit and soon, these people (his people) will be taken to a place of safety – so that they may be spared from the military beast who is guided and/or steered by a false church claiming to be righteous, but is not and today, she is found residing in the city of Rome. Once again, the Catholic crusades will be allowed (by God himself) to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting world and very soon.

        To respond to your last paragraph – He who loves the world – the world loves him back in return, but he who loves Christ, the world seeks to kill him.
        With that in mind, I never expected to be allied with you or anyone else – ZEROGON

        Mars, I’m sure that zero will go on to say that he doesn’t follow any particular faith and that he has his own papal interpretation of scripture. The problem with this is that he thinks that his interpretation of scripture is right. Why is his any more valid than the Churches 2000 year interpretation? 

  • Sam Fisher

    I think I if Chris Mathews didn’t say anything like he claims I would actually still not watch his show. What a moron. He can’t even win at jeopardy.

     An open letter to Charles Woods:Sir, I am so sorry for your loss. For America’s loss. I am humbled by your forgiveness.I don’t know if you will ever read this but if you do, I am truly sorry.The only thing you need to know about me is that I am former Navy.You
    raised a TRUE AMERICAN HERO. That maybe be of little consequence now
    but it’s true. When I was in the Navy my father would say, “Don’t become
    a statue. I would rather a live son than a pretty statue.”When
    a child does something bad you quite often hear, “Well, he/she must
    have had lousy parenting.” But when a child does something like what
    your son did you never hear about parenting. Well sir, you should be
    very proud of yourself. You are one heck of a parent. Parents always try
    to raise their children the right way, to do the right things. At a
    certain age you have to let go and pray they listened. But what your son
    did not only proves that he listened it proves that you, sir are an
    American Hero in your own right.For
    those that don’t know already – for whatever reason – Tyrone Woods was
    at the CIA Annex the night of 9/11/2012 when our embassy and Ambassador
    Chris Stevens were under attack. It has now come out that Tyrone Woods
    requested support and security for the embassy through the proper
    channels and was denied. He then requested permission to go to the
    embassy himself and was told to stand down.Tyrone
    Woods (in true Navy Seal fashion) ignored the stand-down orders and
    with a team of six headed for the Embassy to save as many lives as they
    could, knowing full well that,Best case: he and his team would be charged with disobeying orders and most probably would be thrown out of the Navy, or,He and his team would not come back alive.Special
    note: Tyrone Woods and his team of six – against all odds – made it to
    the embassy, saved countless lives and made it back to the CIA annex
    with survivors in hand and the lifeless body of Sean Smith. He and his
    team were unable to find Ambassador Chris Stevens. Some four hours later
    Tyrone Woods was found dead on the rooftop of the annex slumped over
    his machine gun, killed by a mortar attack. It has been said Tyrone
    Woods was firing at terrorists right up until his death.Being
    former Navy, I always hoped that if I was put in a situation like your
    son was that I would do the right thing. I truly believe most Americans
    would believe that of themselves also.I
    can’t say that I would have. I have never been in that situation. I
    would like to think I would have done exactly what your son did, but the
    fact is most Americans like myself will never be in that situation.
    Thank God for that. That is what makes your son so special. He requested
    this duty knowing how volatile this region is.I
    heard what you said on the Lars Larson show about not getting straight
    answers and that at the funeral for your son Secretary Clinton said that
    they would get the filmmaker and make sure he is arrested and that made
    me angry. I heard your interview with Megyn Kelly and your extreme
    compassion and that me made proud.When
    you said that lasers were on the terrorists who were shooting mortars
    and wondered why the order to pull the trigger was not given, I almost
    choked. Sir, I don’t like cowards either.You
    said the one question you want answered is, “WHO GAVE THE ORDER not to
    take them out?” Well sir, I am with you and I pray and hope all
    Americans are with you.Forget about politics for a moment, the next part of this letter is to all who might read this.I
    don’t care if you support President Obama. Give him a mulligan if you
    like and vote for him if that is what you’re inclined to do. Americans
    can forgive mistakes but Americans should never forgive cover-ups.This is not political, this is what it is.Doesn’t
    Charles Woods deserve the truth? Don’t we Americans deserve the truth?
    Don’t the families of Glen Daugherty and Sean Smith deserve the truth?The
    President, Hillary Clinton and Leon Panneta were in the Oval Office
    meeting at 5 pm est on the night of 9/11/2012. What were they doing? If
    they didn’t get the real-time information that the CIA and the people in
    the situation room were getting – along with video from the drones that
    were up above at the time – then we must ask, “Why?”It’s time to come clean Mr. President. Please respect the American people enough to come clean. We deserve that much don’t we?I
    am asking all Americans who read this letter to stand up for our four
    brave Americans who were murdered on 9/11/2012 as they stood up and died
    for us. I am asking all who care about the truth to demand the
    President hold a special news conference in prime time. If by November
    2nd this has not happened, then I request back-up (a request that was
    denied three times during the attacks in Benghazi.) I ask anyone who
    cares to honk their car horns, bang pots, blow whistles or whatever you
    have for one minute at 4:05 pm est on November 2nd, 2012. Let’s call it
    HONK FOR ANSWERS. Please don’t deny this request. Please copy and paste
    or share this letter add your name at the bottom and send to everyone
    you know. That will only take a few seconds. The attack in Benghazi took
    at least 7 hours.Charles Woods, you say you forgive the people who denied your son’s pleas for help. I STAND WITH YOU AND FORGIVE TOO.I salute you.Christopher VaiciunasAmy Bercaw

    I love it when Glenn does his side-by-side comparisons between his fledgling network and NBC. I’ve often heard Glenn brag about moving into 30 Rock in a few years. I was rolling on the floor this morning when he was talking about building the “TV” set for his election night coverage. 
    I immediately conjured up images of Tom Brokaw and Tim Russert doing historic broascasts of the major events that have shaped our Country’s direction over the last 30 years. Brokaw and Russert spent lifetimes building creditable reputations that most Americans admired. Then you have Glenn, Pat and Stu, wacky morning DJ’s who fancy themselves intellectuals. Just ask yourself what a side-by-side comparison of Election Night coverage would look like. Brokaw and Russert vs. Glenn, Pat and Stu. I think it would be like comparing two Chess Grandmasters with three guys who lost out in the first round of the Checkers Tournament down at the general store!
