Newt chews Chris Matthews’ race card and spits it out

Newt chews Chris Matthews’ race card and spits it out

Chris Matthews is pushing the race card really hard, as is MNSBC and much of the mainstream media.

I sense panic, complete and utter panic.

Everything is a race whistle to this crowd (is using the term “crowd” racist, Chris, or at least a dog whistle?).

Matthews came loaded for bear yesterday with Reince Priebus, and got the better of it because he was on a sympathetic panel and had the crowd cheering his racial play.

But Newt gave it back to Matthews in a way Preibus was unable to do.

It’s a shame the Romney campaign has been hiding Newt, and kept him off main stage at the RNC.

Tingles is a hostile nut case who connects blacks with food stamps – and, who is desperately fearful that the object of his man love won’t be re-elected.

Newt is a Happy Warrior.

Don’t think Preibus did that bad of a job. Recall a nice shot in referring to mr. tingles “monologue”, being constantly talked over and not really given a chance to utter words, BUT with a Lefty audience you are correct.

Of course Newt IS the piss and vinegar guy. He was my choice at the start, unfortunately team Romney viciously attacked Newt. Speaking of that “team” Romney they had better be as vicious with the Alinsky prize student. They have nothing to lose since they have been tagged Team Racist and will continue to be tagged as that, after his election win. I hope..

Some time ago (last year, or perhaps longer), I was listening to “Morning in America” with Bill Bennett. A caller made a remark about a statement, an off-the-wall one, made by Chris Matthews.

Bill Bennett replied that he and Chris Matthews were friends. I wondered what in the world I might be missing about the guy. No doubt it says quite a bit about Bill Bennett that he can maintain a freindship with someone with whom he has significant disagreements.

Maybe, team Romeny is aiming for a certain image and this is why they’re not using Newt more. Given the road ahead, I would think the greater variety of voices the better, as long as they’re on the same basic page.

    I can recall when Chris was a guest host for Rush.

    The man has gotten progressively (see what I did there?) more insane.

      While progress is indeed unidirectional, it’s quality is entirely ambiguous. The prevailing conception of progress is indeed insane, as it leads us to a time before individual dignity was respected; and, in America, amounts to little more than a suicide pact.

    Chris lives in Chevy Chase; I assume Bennett lives in the DC burbs as well. Both are Catholic, and Bennett was at one time a democrat. I could see the two being friends.

Liberals seem to have an almost genetic habit of painting themselves as the “protective/nurturing parent” when it comes to blacks and other minorities.
What could be more racist than a demonstrated propensity that demands blacks/minorities are ill equipped/unable to defend themselves in cases liberals imagine racism exists?

The liberal message to blacks and other minorities seems to say in a basic way “Dont you worry about racism…Mommy has her eyes open and will watch out for you whether you want me to or not”…”since Mommy knows you arent able to speak or think for yourselves”

In lieu of Newt, maybe Chubby Check, err Christie, will be THE Fire Breather..

It’s just me, I’m sure, but the conversation does not deliver the knock-out punch the headline suggests. Much of this is because Mr. Matthews talks over his guest. Believe me I would like to see Newt eat Mr. Matthews’ lunch, but in too many of the Conservative blogs I follow such headlines introduce conversations that don’t deliver the goods.

I got a tingle up my leg watching that.

Obama rose on racism; it’s the only card in his hand. They have to play it relentlessly. A major problem for the Republicans is that there is essentially no single statement that will neutralize the charge. Relentlessly pushing back every time the race card is played is the best strategy.

Like with any infection, you can’t take the entire course of penicillin at one time. You have to take it dose by dose in its entirety until the infection is eradicated. Stop taking the medicine when you begin to see progress, and it will return stronger than before.

Every time the MSM and its hero play that race card, Republicans have to push back. Just like Newt did, ask them why they see race when you don’t.

    Oh, yeah, and a nice quote from Douglas MacArthur: Appeasement only leads to bloodier warfare.

    Republicans have proven this by allowing themselves to be punching bags. Time to stop.

The most revealing part of Matthews’ meltdown was how personal he felt about it. Something as simple as Priebus’ facial expressions turbocharged his emotions. It was clear to me he hates Priebus on a personal level, and many in the GOP. Desperation has an ugly face, and Matthews shows us how desperate the left is becoming. The negative campaigning is not working to their benefit and they resent that it is working, even if slightly, to the benefit of Romney.

    Tune: “Feed the Birds” with apologies to Mary Poppins.

    “FEED MY FOOLS” for Chris Matthews

    Coifed and pampered each day comes the “Tingle-y-one”,
    For his lies must commence ‘fore the sun,
    With the guile of a temptress, to our nation he calls,
    “Come drink the Kool-Aid of “THE WON.”

    “Then suckle his minions, to show BARRY you care,
    And you’ll be, oh so glad, if you do.
    But I’ve none to share,
    So I’ll just cry “RACIST” at you!

    “Feed my fools, just a few lies apiece,
    We can all drink of the Kool-Aid for a few lies apiece.
    “Feed my fools, that’s what I cry,
    And throughout this nation my lies fill the skies.

    From someplace that’s not hot for the wicked,
    My dread minions are slaving away,
    And although you can’t see it, I know they are smiling,
    For each Patriot soul led astray.
    If you listen, I’m calling to you:

    “Feed my fools, just a few lies apiece,
    A few “spins”, a few “shams”, a few “fibs” apiece.”



This skirmish only makes it more likely Romney will keep Newt at arm’s length. The people around Romney are allergic to this kind of politics, these kinds of confrontations.

As a side note, good story in Daily Caller yesterday about RINO progressive buddy of Romney’s already trying to build a fiefdom within his camp, even recruiting Bob Bennett. Beware.

    Got a link or, alternatively, the name of the progressive RINO?

      raven in reply to logos. | August 28, 2012 at 12:24 pm

      Mike Leavitt. He runs a consulting firm which advises states on how to be compliant with Obamacare, and believes (some would say self-interestedly) that the Obamacare health care exchanges are good ideas. The article has a lot to do with his Mormonism, which I couldn’t care less about. In honesty and to clarify, it’s probably more of an old-guard, ruling class mindset than a Progressive Rino bent (though the two intersect, I think). Leavitt brought on Bob Bennett, the decrepit RINO from Utah.

TrooperJohnSmith | August 28, 2012 at 11:28 am

Clubbing. Baby Seals.

Matthews and the rest of his Lefty Cabal are the biggest racists on the planet. They assume that things said are racist, because that’s how they see these things. So naturally, they accuse our side of the same. Or, to paraphrase H.L. Mencken, one always assumes someone would by lying if he would lie under the same circumstances.

If Romney is our King Arthur, Newt is our Sir Guido from Toledo (not Spain).

    jimzinsocal in reply to TrooperJohnSmith. | August 28, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    Agree. Liberals arent able to see how their collective oversensitivity and overprotection of blacks/other minorities does more to perpetuate the slave/master relationship than anything Republicans might say or do.

    The moment liberals take on the “protector” role they elevate themselves over the very folks they think they are protecting. All the way around.

Matthews and friends should probably be put on a suicide watch. Don’t interfere, mind you, just watch.

DINORightMarie | August 28, 2012 at 11:59 am

I wanted to hear the rest! Newt stomps Chrissy…..! Yes!!

Great admission of a LIE re: the “Reagan said ‘welfare queen'” and, REALLY loved that throw-away by Chrissy, “Anybody out there watching black or white knows…..”

Um, Newt just STOMPED on that false statement by ref: the prev. panel…..stop talking Chrissy – you FAIL! Your Alinsky community organizer tactics won’t work on Newt. He’s just too smart for you, Chrissy.

Very painful to watch Newt squashing you like the cock-roach you are over and over again (a somewhat pleasant pain, though). 😉

Agree with JP, Priebus did okay.

It must be understood that Matthews is no more interested in eliminating racism than is Hezbollah in negotiating peace with Israel. It’s Matthews’ straw man, he’s a one act show and racism is it. The best way to neutralize him is to challenge the ridiculous assertions in his opening argument, then push facts into his face, laughingly, repeatedly, publicly, in front of an audience, every time (thank you, Professor, for the gift of Elizabeth Warren). The other thing Newt does so well is just sit and let Matthews rant. The dullard seems to believe he’s on to something when he mocks the look on Newt’s face, when, in fact, Newt was laughing at him. Matthews is incapable of controlling his mouth. I see them only in video clips, but it seems, Like Bill O’Brien, there’s never anything new, they’re always the same. They’re entertainers – the mouth and antics are what they do.

Please Barack, leave Matthews and MSNBC alone until after the election. We need them.

    Midwest Rhino in reply to Owego. | August 28, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    I love it when Matthews uses Reagan talking about the welfare class “which was African American”. When Newt nails him, Chrissy just says “he didn’t have to say it” … because “we” all know how this game works.

    That sums up this Democratic campaign … “don’t listen to Republicans, just believe the despicable Democrat deception”. And they own prime time.

Midwest Rhino | August 28, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Dennis Miller was on Leno last night … sorta did his own little monologue, ripping the Democrats. But Leno is pretty full tilt trashing Romney. From Jay’s monologue …

“This is my favorite statistic so far, according to a new poll, Mitt Romney is at zero percent among African American voters. (big guffaw) He’s at zero. And you know, I don’t think the GOP’s slogan for the convention is helping any ‘See what White can do for YOU’ … I think that sends the wrong message”.

Later, talking to Miller, Leno complains Republicans have this “war on women”. Later, he said even though Akin was rebuked, that Akin “was saying what the platform is … and it shows what many believe. I think Romney is a good guy … I just think he had to go all the way right and it will ultimately hurt him in the long run”.

Miller didn’t clarify that “no exception for abortion” is a Democrat talking point, not part of the platform. Miller instead came back with Obama being extreme left.

Unfortunately, many more people get their news from Leno and Stewart than from “Faux News”. So suddenly, what rebuked idiot Akin says is what Republicans are really about, according to big media. And Leno will keep up a steady stream of “comedy” about how racist the Republicans are. It seems very coordinated.

    And, add “Faux Education” and “Faux Religion” and “Faux Comedy” and “Faux Governmant” . . . you get some rather shallow, self-saturated, easily manipulated people. Thus, our present, and for some years forward, circumstance.

Chris has his nose buried so far up Obamas rectum he is the 1st to smell Obamas gaseous excretions as they flex past his sphinkter.

The GOP leadership is more concerned with being approved by the Democrat news media than winning an election. Period.

They’re also parasites, feeding off the passion of conservatives who effectively put them in office (John Boehner, as an example — who’s only public bashing of anyone to date has been conservatives).

Here’s someone else who can come up with memorable zingers:

“These people who still have that addiction to the hope-ium that he had promised, that hope-y, change-y stuff that was really bogus four years ago,” Palin said, “well they have about 71 days to open up their eyes and realize the path that he has put us on, a path toward insolvency, a path toward fewer freedoms and, really, orchestrated chaos and bankruptcy.”

The game being played is an end to semantic games. The people who have exploited the latter to improve their political, economic, and social standing are losing. They have seen fit to denigrate individual dignity, devalue human life, and are sponsors of progressive corruption (i.e. cultural corruption). We will soon learn just how many Americans there are in America. My guess is there remains a slight majority.

Republicans would do well to take lessons from Gingrich in rhetorical jujutsu.

Maybe if Newt hadn’t gone all Obama over Bain in the primaries, he would have a major speaking role.

Odd how these Gingrich and Santorum supporters profess to be conservatives, but then expect their candidates’ conduct of their campaigns to be without consequences.

    Valerie in reply to Estragon. | August 28, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    You really don’t want to go there, or I’m going to start talking about the lies Mitt Romney told about Newt Gingrich during the primaries.

    punfundit in reply to Estragon. | August 28, 2012 at 6:58 pm

    Odd how Romney supporters seem to have no problem with the GOP Establishment and how they conduct business.

    Why, it’s like they aren’t conservatives at all.

NC Mountain Girl | August 28, 2012 at 3:31 pm

James Taranto over at the WSJ noted yesterday that the whole thing about dog whistles is only the dogs can hear them. What does it say about Matthews that he’s barking, scratch and whining while the Republican just sit there scratching their heads?

I’m going to make a wild guess: Gingrich is the mystery speaker on Thursday.

    NC Mountain Girl in reply to Tamminator. | August 28, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Newt already has a slot outside of the network broadcast window.

    My guess is it will be a big name Democrat. Former Congressman Artur Davis is already speaking tonight so he’s out. Maybe Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia or former Governor Doug Wilder of Virginia. Wilder was highly critical of Biden’s chain remarks and was reportedly seen at a Romney Ryan fundraiser in Virginia recently.

The only time I ever heard my father refer to a “young buck,” he was referring to my brother.

Umm, yeah, we’re white. from Texas.

Somebody’s been saying this on the internet’s (pardon me if it was here my memory is not clear):

If you can hear the dog whistle, YOU”RE THE DOG!!!!
