Chris Matthews to Dems: “I Tried to Warn We Were Headed Too Far Left”

Chris Matthews to Dems: “I Tried to Warn We Were Headed Too Far Left”

The responses prove Matthews’ point: “nothing too far left about the U.S, and raising your taxes and increasing social programs…”

Former MSNBC host Chris Matthews reminded Democrats he warned them a few times they were headed too far left.

The leftists on Twitter immediately pounced on Matthews. It’s hilarious because you can tell no one bothered to Google his past comments.

Matthews said in April 2017:

[Chuck] Todd said he felt Matthews, the longtime liberal host of “Hardball” and a former Democratic aide, would agree with Continetti’s sentiment. Matthews pointed to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s shift to the left on abortion rights as something that alienated more moderate voters in states like Pennsylvania.

“A lot of it’s cultural, not just economics,” Matthews said. “I think that the position Hillary Clinton, for example, took, on abortion, late-term abortions … get rid of the Hyde Amendment, pushed too far. I think a lot of the people [who] came out and voted in Pennsylvania, where I’m from, were pro-lifers. With all of Trump’s problems, morally, personally, whatever, they didn’t like Hillary’s position. I think the party moved too far to the left on cultural issues.”

Then Matthews railed against socialism in February 2020 after a Democratic primary debate:

“…the issue of this campaign, it is that word ‘socialism,’” Matthews said. “Some people like it, younger people like it, those of us like me, who grew up in the Cold War and saw some aspects of it, if there visiting places like Vietnam, like I have, [and seeing countries] like Cuba, being there, I’ve seen what socialism’s like, I don’t like it, OK?” Matthews said. “It’s not only not free, it doesn’t frickin work!”

“I think the Democratic Party has to figure out its ideology,” Matthews continued. “A lot us will be sorting things out if the Democratic Party runs a socialist candidate. That’s a change from the Democratic Party. The Democrat Party has been to the left of the Republican Party on the issue of mixed capitalism, more social programs, they push social security, Medicare, Medicaid, enormously popular programs.”

“I have my views on the word ‘socialist,’ and I’ll be glad to share them with you in private and they go back to the early 1950s. I have an attitude about them, I remember the Cold War, I have an attitude toward Castro,” Matthews contined. “I believe if Castro and the reds had won the Cold War there would have been executions in Central Park and I might have been one of the ones getting executed and certain other people would be there cheering, OK?”

Matthews didn’t stop there, which turned out to be the end of his career. He compared a possible Bernie presidential nomination to the Nazi invasion and takeover of France in 1940. Not appropriate ever, but especially since Bernie is Jewish and the Nazis murdered his dad’s family.

So those are the warnings Matthews threw out these past few years. How many of these people remembered what he said? Plus, they are literally proving his point. Yes, a big and bloated government is too far left!

You can also tell they all live in their own world. Democrats keep resigning from Congress because they know they’ll likely lose to Republicans in November. Biden’s approval numbers keep crashing. Everyone still hates Harris.

It’s a revolution, folks. Stay tuned.

Matthews is a full-on lefty scum; always has been. His only difference with Bernie and company is the rate of change.

    I’m afraid the rate of change in their acceleration will cause the Eagle they are clueless about piloting to have the wings ripped off and plummet to the scene of the crash with all of us on board as they slowly drift downward, suspended in the temporary safety of silk only to be torn to shreds by the survivors.

    Who is Chris Matthews? Never heard of her.

You’re right Chris, once you “Progressives” revealed yourselves as full blown COMMUNISTS, America woke up and began telling you and your ilk to POUND SAND.

This from the knuckle dragger that claimed the right wasn’t far enough left.

I guess his leg stopped tingling.

    henrybowman in reply to Massinsanity. | January 3, 2022 at 4:27 pm

    The tingling should have been his first indication that the Democrat GFCI his career depended on was faulty.
    Curiously, he understands precisely that commies always eat their own, and what likely waited for him under a Castro regime. Still, he apparently resolved to “avoid going blind by ceasing to masturbate only at the point when he needed glasses.”
    Bottom line is that a dedicated leftie is gone, cancelled by other dedicated lefties.
    Win for us.

Why does anyone care about what this useful idiot says?

You know you’re in trouble when … Chris Matthews is the voice of reason.

Leftism is organized lunacy.

Old “Tingles up my leg” Chris Matthews has been without a (major) platform for so long that I forgot he was still alive.

It’s eye opening in a way to see how there are many on the left who want to trash him for being honest – socialism doesn’t work. Let them reap what they sow, when they loose even more seats.

I don’t like the guy’s views on many topics, but if his playmates won’t let him in their sandbox, too bad. Maybe Chris should wake up and just realize the D is not his party anymore. He can’t change it from within – that moment has passed.

    Matthews has always been center left. Lots of older d and many younger d are the same. They are not on board with implementing full on socialism and the extreme actions it would take to impose it. Some are viewing the present evidence of d/prog insanity with varying degrees of horror.

    Unfortunately many d/prog are in favor of full on socialism; see support for Sanders. The bulk of these folks imagine themselves as administrators and overseers in this vision while others work in fields and factories. They don’t understand that this isn’t cosplay and they won’t get to choose what job they are assigned to perform by the full socialist totalitarian regime they endorse.

Lots of older d and many younger d are the same. They are not on board with implementing full on socialism and the extreme actions it would take to impose it.

Which raises the question: why would they believe that? Forget about showing that collectivism and central economic planning actually succeed in bringing peace and prosperity – can they point to even a single case where totalitarians were content with only a little taste of power? Is there really such a thing as a benevolent dictatorship?

2 Timothy 3:1-7 was written precisely for to describe all on the Left.

I think Mr. Matthews is on the same page as Hillary: In order to succeed, they must employ deception, and steadfastly deny they are Socialists/Communists. They denounce the AOCs because of AOCs’ unfiltered honesty as to their political/social intentions. Matthews and Hillary take a more pragmatic approach to honesty: say what is needed to win elections and gain power. Then, and only then, criminalize any political opposition and cement themselves in power. They view the AOCs as naive in this regard.

    I hear all the time from leftists (particularly gun-grabbers) who realize they are riding the bus to totalitarianism, but promise to get off at an intermediate stop. They are incapable of understanding that it’s their busfare that pays for the bus to continue all the way to the end of the line.

“I tried to warn we were headed too far left.”

So says one of the drivers of the car …

He had his career as a weak-tea, weak-knee liberal. He got paid enormously, but the world has passed him by, fortunately.
