Following the news that Donald Trump dropped out of the GOP debate in Iowa --- that mean ol' Megyn Kelly asks tough questions --- Chris Matthews of MSNBC's Hardball said this: "Who is going to watch a debate between two Cubans?"
Liberals Love Labels
Nice work, Chris Matthews. Archie Bunker would be proud. Why is it that conservatives are labeled racists and bigots, but liberals are the ones who put everyone into a category? Who sees people through the filter of color? Liberals do, that's who.
Remember when Chris Matthews forgot Barack Obama was black? That was so big of him, wasn't it? It was the 2010 State of the Union, and Matthews got so caught up in the president's speech he became color blind.
"'All of a sudden, I'm listening to him and I'm like, he's so smart. He's like white.' That is what he's saying," Glenn mimicked Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "'I forgot he's so much like me, he could be white. I almost said, he should join our country club. And then I realized he's black. And then I'm like, hey, dude, you can't come in. You can park my car, but you can't come in.'"
You're Only an Ethnic Group If It Fits the Liberal Agenda
On Saturday Glenn endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for President of the United States. He used very specific words because the liberal media won't use them --- they just don't fit the agenda.
"You know why everyone played my endorsement --- and I said it this way so they had to admit that he was Hispanic --- I said, 'That's why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz to be the first Hispanic-American president.' Because nobody says that."
Common Sense Bottom Line
Chris Matthews' statement was a true racist statement. Ted Cruz would be the first Hispanic-American president. But don't hold your breath for the media to report either.
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: Did you see that Chris Matthews said, "Who is going to watch a debate between two Cubans?"
GLENN: Is that -- I mean, is there any way to read other than as a real true racist statement.
PAT: Racist. I don't think so.
GLENN: That is a true racist statement.
STU: Yeah. Because he's a guy too, we've always questioned, "Why are you seeing this 4 percent tax cut as a racial issue?"
GLENN: Because he sees everything as a racist -- which usually means you're self-diagnosing.
STU: Everything. Yeah.
PAT: Did anybody else think of the remaining guys as two Cubans? First of all, there's a lot of white guys there.
GLENN: No, they never say that. Nobody ever refers to them --
GLENN: You know why everyone played my endorsement -- and I said it this way so they had to admit that he was Hispanic. I said, "That's why I'm endorsing Ted Cruz to be the first Hispanic-American president." Because nobody says that.
GLENN: And I wanted to make sure that we just slipped that in there.
STU: Yeah, that's smart.
GLENN: Let's just slip that in there.
STU: I did see it in multiple news reports too. That's interesting.
GLENN: And they cut everything else off. Because I said three different things about after that. But I put "Hispanic president" first because just a little salt in the wound at the left just a little. Oh, we can play that game too all day long.
STU: It worked too. That's funny.
GLENN: Yeah, you know, it's truly amazing that none of them will talk about that, but the minute you actually have to -- now that Trump is out. That vacuum of Trump. Now you see them reveal their true colors. Who wants to listen to a couple of -- who wants to listen to a couple of Cubans?
PAT: That's crazy.
GLENN: That is crazy. Crazy racist. Crazy racist.
STU: Do you think there's anything to that other theory?
GLENN: What other theory?
STU: I guess where people have been talking about, the theory is that he had some incident in his past, which he potentially maybe like ran over a minority and is now spending the rest of his life playing penance HEP for this because he made a promise as he was driving away? If I can just get through this --
PAT: I'll make everything a racial issue.
STU: Everything. I don't know.
GLENN: What kind of --
JEFFY: Well, that theory was put forth on one of the shows on this network.
GLENN: The Pat & Stu Show?
STU: The bottom line is I got a call in my office by someone who said that was true. I don't know. It's out there. He needs to answer it.
GLENN: Okay. I got it. I got it.
PAT: Well, we should have known when he said this.
CHRIS: You know, I forgot he was black tonight for an hour.
STU: I mean, seriously.
PAT: So the rest of the time you think about that the whole time. This guy is black.
STU: He's black. He's still black. Black.
PAT: It's a black guy.
GLENN: But all of a sudden, I'm listening to him and I'm like, "He's so smart. He's like white."
STU: Right. That's kind of what he said.
GLENN: That is what he's saying. I forgot he's so much like me, he could be white. I almost -- I almost said, he should join our country club. And then I realized he's black. And then I'm like, hey, dude, you can't come in. You can park my car, but you can't come in.
STU: This is what it sounds like.
JEFFY: Yes, it does.
STU: I don't know if he just overthinks this stuff, but he's constantly putting every issue into those racial terms, so it is a little revealing yet again on that one.
