The end of the world is near: Chris Matthews defends… the Tea Party?

Resident Obama lapdog Chris Matthews offered a curious defense of Virginia congressional candidate Dave Brat and the Tea Party in general during an appearance on MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily on Wednesday.

“I guess there's one word for Chris Matthews, and that would be ‘schizophrenic.’ I mean he's flaming liberal… continually referring to conservatives as racists with absolutely no evidence,” Pat said on radio this morning. “However, every once in a while… he will sound like a right wing kook on a late night Fox News show.”

After defeating House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Brat, an economics professor at Randolph-Macon College, will now face off against Democratic challenger and fellow Randolph-Macon professor Jack Trammell. Host Ronan Farrow pointed to each man’s rating on the popular website RateMyProfessors.com to show that Trammell is more popular among students. Matthews was not pleased with Farrow’s characterization.

“Is it rare to see that kind of brazen intellectualism, particularly in populist candidates like this,” Farrow asked after mentioning the ratings.

“Well, first of all, I don’t think you can assume that the liberals are smarter than the conservative professors,” Matthews shot back. “I think that’s crazy talk like that and it’s exactly the kind of attitude conservatives can’t stand. I don’t know which professor is more popular, but that doesn’t mean it’s a better professor, first of all.”

Matthews went on to commend Brat’s poise and eloquence.

“Secondly, I was listening to Brat last night, I listened to him today, I think he’s very sophisticated for a politician,” he continued. “He’s certainly up to the ranks in most politicians I’ve ever dealt with. He speaks in a speculative manner, in an intellectual manner, he can handle any debate on this program or my program.”

“So this looking down our noses at Tea Party people has got to stop,” Mathews added. “They have a message, they are as American as any liberal is, and they are really angry at the failure of the system.”

Matthews passionately argues that the media’s elitist attitude toward conservatives and Tea Party members must stop, but he has built much of his audience and reputation over the last several years by deriding ‘right wing extremists’ who criticize the Obama Administration.

“Of course, if you look at the lead-in question, which was incredibly stupid by Ronan Farrow, [it is] much less idiotic, much less offensive to me than the things Chris Matthews has said in the past,” Stu concluded. “For example, identifying the face of the Tea Party as a bunch of placards with Hitler mustaches and black face. That is way more offensive and not even remotely close to true. Ronan Farrow, stupid point. But to get upset about that after the stuff Chris Matthews has said is really weird.”

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
