Michael Steele called out Matthews, who eventually doubled-down on his remark.
“I resent that. What is this ‘grand wizard’ nonsense?” Steele asked.
“I should say the far-right party,” Matthews retorted.
“Are you saying that we’re the Ku Klux Klan? Give me a break. Don’t go there with me on that,” Steele warned.
“Okay. Great. Good. Thank you,” Matthews cracked. “There’s none of those problems over there. All those birthers out there.”
“Oh my gosh,” Steele could be heard saying.
Either Matthews is wholly ignorant to the close historic ties between the KKK and Democrats or he’s trying to obfuscate that history. This is no surprise, I guess. I constantly read what liberals have to say and conclude they’re either stupid or lying. Liberals wouldn’t be liberals if they weren’t trying to rewrite history.
MesSNBC is obsessed with the birth cert. I’ve never been impressed with the whole issue and I know few people (one, actually) who are. Matthews keeps beating that drum because he needs someone to look crazier than he is. I expect to see him on a park bench next to Olberdink in a few years, wearing a torn, smelly coat, both scowling and muttering “birthers” and “Bush’s fault.”
MesSNBC is nothing more than a bunch of petulant mental adolescents. Chris must have looked at his rating book and had to go have a drink. Then there is Ed Schultz the” Spalding” of TV. This stuff is so tired, predictable and desperate. I wonder if Chris was spitting and spraying Steele when he was always interrupting him The Goofball host must not have that thrill trying to pick up Obama’s turda to polish anymore.
It’s amazing how ignorant Mathews is concerning American History, let alone every other subject… It was the Democrats, and particularly the Dixecrats who after the civil war, created and maintained their hostile oppressive policies and institutions of segregation and intimidation of the black population in America. People like Sen. Robert Byrd, who was a KKK member himself, and Gov. Wallace, were examples of Democrats keeping and maintaining their “grand wizard” policies in place. And it was the Republicans who were the protectors of the minority people for decades, let alone for the past century and a half. This is why liberals want to rewrite history with lies and propaganda, so the facts and truth can never be told. But try telling that to Mr. Liberal indoctrinated Mathews… He is just about as gone as a liberal can get.
Matthews used to work with Tip O’Neill. Tip used to call Sen. Robert Byrd ‘Sheets’ because he was the Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan. This Democrat senator was often referred to as the Dean of the Senate. But never-mind the real racists are conservatives, right Chrissy?
They forget so soon.
