This is true. And I have criticized him for it. I am not, in any way, defending Matthews or what he said (Just FYI). My problem with this thread is
that the OP makes up a bunch of crap and loses his credibility. If the OP wanted to go after Chris Matthews, then my opinion is that he should do it
based on what Matthews actually said and his participation in the movement to associate Obama critics with violence. That would be a great thread! But
clearly the OP doesn't care about my opinion, or the facts, which is fine by me. I don't care about the quality of his threads.
I addressed everything you said, but in typical fashion you're trying to discredit me instead of addressing the topic. Do you know what "implied"
means? Do you even comprehend what you read? I think you read a couple words, then posted in rage. Thats why you keep bringing up my credibility, as
if thats whats at issue here.
I don't think they WANT violence, but I do believe that they are trying to deflect any criticism. Problem is, I think there's a grain of
truth to what they say and that gives their idea validity
No, there isn't. No more so then when Bush was president anyway and we didn't see any of this sort of thing in the media back then.
I don't think they want violence, I think they want to prevent it.
You seem to want to have it both ways. You agree that Matthews is wrong, then go on to proclaim how right he is. Which is it BH?
Matthews and the MSM are trying to do 2 things:
1. Deflect Obama criticism
2. Set up a crack down on freedom of speech if anything does happen
If something did happen it could be anyone who attempted it, but Matthews is setting it up so people assume it was a right wing Beck listener. The
problem is Beck or Rush have never said anything about committing violence or anything of the sort. Which is why we're here talking now.
But if and when it happens, you can be sure they're going to be saying "I told you so".
Right...Where was this sentiment under Bush? I don't recall it.
