The mind-numbing dog-whistle idiocy continues unabated, and it’s now sunk to absolute rock bottom with this performance by the deranged Chris Matthews last night.
Matthews then demonstrates his mind-numbing ability to take an idiotic statement, amplify it, and subsequently make it exponentially more idiotic coming from his mouth, when he said this:
“Yea, well let me ask you about that gentleman. What about now, is this constant barrage of assaults, saying the guy is basically playing an old game of demagoguery politics, where you take the money from the worker bees and give it to the poor people to buy votes. That’s basically what they’re charging him with. Old big-style, big-city machine of 50 years ago.”
He added, “They keep saying Chicago by the way, have you noticed? They keep saying Chicago. That’s another thing that sends that message – this guy’s helping the poor people in the bad neighborhoods, screwing us in the ‘burbs.”
Hielemann helpfully interpreted Matthews statement, presumably for those too challenged to understand basic words (or as we in the business refer to them – Hardball viewers), by making this jaw-dropping statement:
“There’s a lot of black people in Chicago.”
Yes, because referring to the city of Chicago would have nothing to do with trying to link the President to a long, storied history of corruption. It simply has to be in reference to all of the black people living there.
OK, so if Chicago is racist, shouldn’t the name Matthews be racist?
One of the most exasperating things about doing this column is writing about these Klukkers but never finding any pictures of the pendejos. I can only think of one other instance in which I’ve featured a photo capturing the banality of evil that was the OC KKK–until today.
I’m glad to report that we have a photo of this week’s entry: Earl L. Matthews, one of the county’s first electricians specializing in automobiles through his Orange County Ignition Works, Inc. See the Klan in all its vicious glory! See the Klan in all its slack-jawed hideousness! In its hooded terror!
