Chris Matthews: Republicans Attack Pelosi Because She’s an ‘Ethnic’ Person

Chris Matthews: Republicans Attack Pelosi Because She’s an ‘Ethnic’ Person

“they did it to Tip O’Neill, they did it to Teddy Kennedy”

Is there something about Nancy Pelosi’s background which is only known to Chris Matthews? During a recent broadcast of his MSNBC program Hardball, Matthews claimed that Republicans attack Nancy Pelosi because she is an ‘ethnic’ person.

When did Pelosi become an ethnic person? It’s not as if she’s a Native American like Elizabeth Warren.

Kristine Marsh reports at News Busters:

What? Chris Matthews: Trump ‘Goes After’ Pelosi Because She’s ‘An Ethnic Sort of Person’

In his latest nutty rant, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews adamantly argued that President Trump didn’t like Nancy Pelosi because she was “ethnic.” To back up his crazy point, Matthews cited another white person that Republicans supposedly attacked because they were “ethnic,” former House Speaker from Massachusetts, Tip O’Neill.

“They love to get an ethnic sort of person from one of the coasts and make them the bad person,” Matthews gushed.

The whole thing started when the Hardball host called out President Trump for daring to criticize Democrat Nancy Pelosi. On his February 5 show, Matthews played a tape of Trump saying that he hoped Pelosi would stay in office because she’s so unlikeable, that she would help Republicans win in midterm elections…

Turning to guest and Axios editor Alexi McCammond, he asked why Republicans always chose to attack “ethnic” people from the coast, lumping Pelosi into that group:

Picking on somebody from one of the coasts, usually ethnic, and making them the poster person of the Democratic party is old business for the Republicans. They did it with — way back to some guy from the Bronx back in the 40s. They did it with Bella Abzug from New York City, they did it to Tip O’Neill, they did it to Teddy Kennedy. Now they’re doing it after Nancy Pelosi.

“They love to get an ethnic sort of person from one of the coasts and make them the bad person!”

Here’s the video:

Trump has a very different view of Pelosi and the role she’ll play in the midterms.

Susan Jones of CNS News:

Trump: Nancy Pelosi Is ‘Our Secret Weapon’

In remarks at the Sheffer Corporation in Blue Ash, Ohio, Monday, President Trump criticized House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), calling her the Republicans’ “secret weapon.”

“Nancy Pelosi — what she’s doing to this country — and she’s gone so far left, and Schumer’s gone so far left — I look forward to running against them,” Trump said, referring to both the midterm election in November and the presidential election in 2020.

Trump urged his audience to “start thinking about ’18. Start thinking about November.” He said Pelosi and her fellow Democrats want to raise taxes on Americans while depriving the military of funding.

    my in-laws are in the mid 90’s and until last year still drove.
    they are sharp, so getting old doesn’t mean senility.

    BUT Pelosi and Cissy on the other hand need to check their calendar every few hours to know which year it is.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to amwick. | February 7, 2018 at 5:40 pm

    Why of course Nancy is Chrissy.

    Nancy is a Blue Smurf.

    Just like you, Chrissy, are of Green Kermit Muffet Baby ethnicity.

I did not know that SENILE was an ethnic group.

Now I know, I guess.

And this is coming from the guy who created a hostile work environment towards women.

“Is there something about Nancy Pelosi’s background which is only known to Chris Matthews? ”

In a way, “Yes.”

a) Chris receives orders from the Soros Central Committee.
b) Chris follows orders by saying what he is told to say.
c) Chris gets another paycheck and remains “important.”

Chris knows the drill.

She’s 76% moron, 25% idiot.

So dumbass is an ethnicity???

They can’t really think this angle will sell do they? Dems are crazy but not that stupid. You’ll start to piss off you’re white guilt Dem base if it’s blatantly obvious that you are using minority cards as shields against criticism. I can’t think of anything more obvious that pulling that card when it doesn’t apply.

Chris Matthews: Republicans Attack Pelosi Because She’s an ‘Ethnic’ Person

And thus, Republicans Attack Chris Matthews Because He’s an ‘Idiot’ Person

Um, are Italians no longer ethnic?

    rdmdawg in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 1:05 pm

    Nancy Pelosi is as “ethnic” as Liz Warren is an indian.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 1:52 pm

    Point me to the critical race theory SJW talking point about the privileges denied Italians and the systemic racism against this group.

    Nope…George Zimmerman was “white”, so is Nancy. They could have at least tried to be a tad less incredible by pulling the token woman card.

????? WTF, Marrying an Italian does’t make you one.

    Milhouse in reply to ronk. | February 7, 2018 at 9:34 am

    What are you talking about? She is Italian.

      Barry in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 10:00 am

      Then everyone in this country is an “ethnic”, including native Americans that came from somewhere else originally.

      Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 11:52 am

      Nancy Pelosi is NOT Italian. she was born in BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, for God’s sake. Lat time I looked Baltimore was in the good old USA. Her parents were Italian, by birth, but that does NOT make her Italian. Once you begin applying the criteria that because any of your ancestors were born somewhere other than the USA, this makes ALL of us a member of some ethnic group. It is illogical identity politics and is irrelevant.

        Mac45 in reply to Mac45. | February 7, 2018 at 11:56 am

        Correction: Pelosi’s father, Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr. was also born in the USA, in Baltimore Maryland. So only one of her parents was Italian.

          Milhouse in reply to Mac45. | February 7, 2018 at 2:11 pm

          It doesn’t matter. She is still Italian, and that is ethnic.

          Mac45 in reply to Mac45. | February 7, 2018 at 5:08 pm

          SHE IS NOT ITALIAN. SHE IS AMERICAN. She is a second generation American, born to a first generation American, her father. she might possibly be a Baltimoronian and therefore be of ethnic Baltimore stock. But SHE IS NOT ITALIAN AND NEVER WAS.

          Sorry about yelling, but it seems that you are hard of hearing.

          Milhouse in reply to Mac45. | February 7, 2018 at 11:27 pm

          I heard you the first time, but you’re wrong. Shouting it won’t make it any righter. It took WW1 to turn German-Americans into just Americans.

        Milhouse in reply to Mac45. | February 7, 2018 at 2:14 pm

        and no, not everyone is ethnic. English and Irish are the dominant culture, therefore not ethnic.

          Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 5:14 pm

          Of course, English and Irish are ethnic groups. Just like Germanics, Spanish. Japanese, Korean, and a host of others. Even the original settlers of the North American continent, the various Amerind tribes are separate ethnicities. Bangers and mash and kidney pie are ethnic English food. If you don’t believe that simple go to England as ask the people who live there.

          gmac124 in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 5:31 pm

          Actually everyone is “ethnic” including English and Irish. The problem is everyone is treating it as race instead of ethnicity which is exactly the result Matthews was looking for.

          Geologist in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 7:28 pm

          The Irish are not “ethnic”? Try telling that to a Paddy in the 1840s.

          “Irish need not apply” was a frequent addendum to “Help Wanted” signs. They faced massive bigotry, and still do — drunken louts, right?

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | February 7, 2018 at 11:25 pm

          That was then. Irish have become part of the dominant culture. Southern Europeans are ethnics. Not quite white. That’s just how it is. Why do you insist on denying it?

          Aarradin in reply to Milhouse. | February 8, 2018 at 2:24 am

          Per the US Census, Italians are Caucasians.

          Same applies for the non-quota quota system that colleges and employers use to comply with federal Affirmative Action requirements. Italians are, officially, white.

          Ditto for the Irish.

Golly, there must be a lot of self-loathing Republican ethnics in the legislature…!!!

Well with a net worth of over 40 million there are few people having a bank account that large. So Nancy does qualify as a minority. She and Liz are chairing an Ethnic Conference this summer to make people aware of the challenges faced by people like Nance and Liz. You’d never believe how difficult it is to find good help with all Trump’s doing to keep illegal immigrants out of the country.

Pelosi is the whitest of white privilege. How ethnic is that?

No Chrissy, we mock her because she is as sharp as Edith Bunker and you clowns elevate her so. She couldn’t work in a grade school cafeteria and you Libs deserve the mocking too because of her 🙂

What this shows the world is that the Dimms and their supporters are reaching for any theme to throw at the Trump machine. They are so far out of touch with the average American that it is laughable. Their “Hate Trump” mantra is just wearing thin even for those moderate Dimms and other than that they have no message nor do they have any young people in their arsenal. When we listen to some of their claims about this Russian meme and the lies they tell it is sort of sad to see a once great party sink to this level of silliness.

When you make victimhood the currency of the realm, everyone will try to be a victim.

I think Tip would be a Republican were he just starting out today.

Slobbering sycophants: “CNN WH Correspondent Asks Obama if GOP Candidates Are ‘Uninformed, Out of Touch, or Irresponsible’ “and:
“2011; CNN Reporter Dan Lothian asks Obama this challenging, insightful question: (Speaking bromantically to power)”

But she is ethnic, DNA tests show that Pelosi has evolved into a Botoxi, closely related to the Clostridium Botulinum species.

Why didn’t they just play the sexist card? What do the Democrats lose by spotlighting Nancy Pelosi as female? Odd…

Unless there is something they aren’t telling us about “her”… something they don’t want to draw attention to.

buckeyeminuteman | February 7, 2018 at 1:43 pm

Tip O’Neill, Teddy Kennedy and Crazy Nancy all look “white” to me. And that’s really the problem with categorizing people according to ethnicities and races in America.

No, we attack Pelosi because she’s a hypocritical idiot person.

Mathews has been a useful idiot of the left and remains one for the same reasons Weinstein and Woody Allen were:

NBC paid out severance to staffer who accused Chris Matthews of sexual harassment:

NBC silent on whether MSNBC’s Chris Matthews could face other sexual harassment accusations:

How is this guy still on the air?

    Pelosi, obama, klinton, sharpton, schumer and the rest of these malignant narcissists are hate-mongers, as bad as any demogogue ever was.

    They need to be humiliated, marginalized, and criminally charged for their numerous corrptions and treason:

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): “Air Pelosi” is now grounded.

    Judicial Watch uncovered documents back in 2009 detailing attempts by Pentagon staff to accommodate Pelosi’s numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft for herself and her family as well as the speaker’s 11th hour cancellations and changes. In 2010, Judicial Watch kept the pressure on Pelosi, uncovering documents that demonstrated the Speaker was using U.S. Air Force aircraft as her own personal party planes. Overall, the Speaker’s military travel cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

    For example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from Washington, DC to Tel Aviv, Israel and Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008, included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Maker’s Mark whisky, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewar’s scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine.

    Moreover, Pelosi also abused the rules by allowing members of her family to join her on taxpayer-funded Air Force flights. For example, on June 20, 2009, Speaker Pelosi’s daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons joined a flight from Andrews Air Force Base to San Francisco International Airport. That flight included $143 for on-flight expenses for food and other items. On July 2, 2010, Pelosi took her grandson on a flight from Andrews Air Force Base to Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California, which is northeast of San Francisco.

    Judicial Watch’s efforts not only exposed Nancy Pelosi’s corrupt abuse of military aircraft, but they also led to reform when Rep. John Boehner announced after Election Day that, as Speaker of the House of Representatives, he will fly commercial to and from Ohio instead of using military aircraft.

    Of course, it was Rep. Nancy Pelosi who famously promised to “drain the swamp” in Washington, DC during the campaign of 2006 when the Democrats seized control of power on Capitol Hill. That did not happen. Aside from her own personal transgressions, Pelosi also turned a blind eye to corruption on the part of her Congressional colleagues (see Charlie Rangel entry below).


    Pelosi’s Culture Of Corruption:

I think the word Chris was searching for is “unethical.“

Yup. Matthews is right. Pelosi is being attacked by the notorious anti-Italian wing of the Republican Party. This is why Trump wants to build a Wall–to keep those Italians out of the country. Everyone knows that.
