If you are someone who pays attention to Chris Matthews and his hot takes on the world of politics, you know that he is prone to saying some crazy things. His latest rant definitely takes the cake, though. When he had the chance to speak about Trump and all of his supporters, he went straight for the jugular.
He used phrases like “violent purge” and “cult”. He even referred to Trump as a dictator. None of this sounds like it is based in reality. This is just what the left does, though. They spew insanity and try to make sense of it all later. Their relationship with the real world that the rest of us live in is a tenuous one at best.
Matthews also said that the president would be preparing to unleash a violent reign of terror, if the Constitution was not here to protect us. The purge would be unleashed and the left would have to live in fear of violent reprisals, according to him. Do these people ever stop to realize how ridiculous they sound in these instances?
We are going to go out on a limb and say no. Matthews even compared Trump to a black mamba and considering the recent passing of Kobe Bryant, we found this comment to be in especially poor taste. Sherrod Brown had a conversation with Matthews that went in a very bizarre direction, too.
Trump and his voters were compared to a Nazi cult from North Korea. We are not quite sure how anyone could come up with such a combination but we are not here to try and figure out the ramblings of Chris Matthews. It’s the sort of thing where you just have to shake your head and have a good laugh, to be honest.
North Korea is truly a dictatorship and it is like none of these people have ever read a book or done any research. Sure, there are policies that we all disagree with in America. It does not matter what side of the aisle you are sitting on. North Korean citizens cannot express their true feelings and they are made to march in lockstep.
This is something that Americans would never, ever be able to relate to. For all of the dramatic rhetoric that the left loves to bandy about, they have yet to experience that type of oppression. The impeachment trial seems to have fried any remaining brain cells that the left still had to burn.
Chris Matthews has even referred to Trump as Satan. He also said that any American who was considering voting for him again would be making a deal with the devil himself. This all sounds like something out of a bad movie. We cannot believe that people are actually paid to offer this kind of insane rhetoric in a public forum.
All of this hyperbole about how terrible Trump is ignores a few simple facts. First of all, Americans are still free to speak their minds in any way that they see fit. We are not forced to keep our thoughts to ourselves. Secondly, Barack Obama was not exactly friendly to the journalists that he disagreed with. He was not shy about trying to silence anyone who went against him.
Where was all of this rah rah then? It was nowhere to be found and the hypocrisy is alarming, to say the least. This type of propaganda should not be peddled to the American public and we are tired of it. It is time to cut through all of the nonsense and expose the biases that the liberal media is allowed to present without being questioned.
It is easy to see why the left has gotten so comfortable saying anything that pops into their heads. No one has ever been willing to stand up to them and check them on it. That’s why Trump remains so popular with the right. He stands up for their beliefs and keeps them from having to feel as if their thoughts and feelings have been neglected.
In a world where the left has gotten accustomed to becoming the default, they need to realize that their way of thinking is not the be all end all. When people like Chris Matthews get to come undone like this on live television, it sends a terrible message to everyone.
Hopefully, these types of tantrums start to become less frequent and the rest of us will stop having to hear about the left’s daily meltdown. Click bait journalism has no place during legitimate political discourse.
