Chris Matthews CONFRONTS Lady Who Tells Him To Do His Homework, ‘Obama Is A Communist, Buddy’





As MSNBC host Chris Matthews talked to people in the crowd outside the Danville, Kentucky location for tonight’s vice presidential debate, he was interrupted by an older woman who insisted President Barack Obama is a communist and un-American. The host then confronted the random woman over what led her to believe such a thing. -snip- http://www.mediaite.com/tv/matthews-confronts-lady-who-tells-him-to-do-his-homework-obama-is-a-communist-buddy/

78. Agree


If there's anything sad here it's in the waste of a human brain. Her brain. It is incapable of clear thought and thrives on adolescent and stupid right wing cliches. Worse, yet: she's no spring chicken, so the last years of her life will be spent despising and hating -- without rational foundation.

But her appearance in the video reminds me, The Walking Dead returns on october 14th! And for that, I am thankful.

And, instead, she tries to put down Tweety for not knowing what she refuses to say. Which was basically, "Get Obama off my lawn!"

I have not met ONE Teabagger that can answer the same question: "Why exactly do you believe that's true?" without getting either a) condescension, b) irrational anger or c) BOTH!

Most old people I know -- including me -- are decent, thoughtful, compassionate folks.

And remember: Pete Seeger is a nonagenarian. And his extreme love of liberty and humanity makes up for 1,000 old farts like this ignorant woman.

Shows to go ya. Matthews did pretty well attempting to interview her and get her source for what its worth. For anyone who may be confused, President Obama has been governing as a Moderate maybe even as a Moderate Republican. That is what angers some far left supporters. And yes the USA is a corporate socialist country. With billions of dollars of support to the oil industry as an example there can be no other conclusion. The rich are simply trying to consolidate their power so the rest of us can be controlled in perpetuity.

And Matthews can't be 'mean' to a 'little old lady' in a situation like that.. She clearly couldn't answer the question without getting in her dishonest digs at him for asking her opinon. Her opinion could be summed up in, 'I hate Obama' and nothing else...

The dividing line between the GOP voters and the Democrats was a stark contrast. One side, every face was happy and smiling.

The other side, full of anger and hatred, with no space between. That's the difference this year.

30. Actually, there's homework to do in a way, but not in the way she means it

He probably already knows that there's a Tea Party wing of the Republican Party which has made a big impact into the talking points of the right wing in general.

Maybe it hasn't occurred to him to connect the dots between the old John Birch Society and the Tea Party. A lot of the old talk about Communists and the emphasis on Russia as being our chief enemy has its roots in the lore and beliefs of the JBS. I don't know why he was so surprised by her remark, but maybe he didn't realize how badly the GOP has devolved. That mindset is so prevalent and I'm surprised he doesn't know this!

Glad the media is calling people out on this finally. If you use the words communist and socialist, know what they mean first.

55. HO-LEE SHITE!

It's from the Mormon book of Doctrines and Convenants!

But, behold, I say unto you, that you must study it out in your mind; then you must ask me if it be right, and if it is right I will cause that your bosom shall burn within you; therefore, you shall feel that it is right.

The second part (bosom burning and feeling that it is right) is pretty much Stephen Colbert's Truthiness Doctrine. I smell an intellectual property legal battle coming down the pike!

50. The funny thing is

People like this think they are the smartest people in the world, sadly they are some of the most ignorant people in the world. But it's their stupidity that keeps them forever from seeing the light. It's a sad and vicious cycle. Like the old saying goes, "The person who thinks they know everything, doesn't know anything."

When she said that even if the President was born here, doesn't think like "us", Matthews could have hammered her.

59. This woman ONLY knows the Glenn Beck talking points!

I know people like this.

They are ignorant fools, hugging their radios--falling on every word that their hero Glenn Beck tells them. They know how to feed the garbage into their brains.

They don't know how to explain it.

They don't know how to defend it.

They don't know what Communism is. They don't know what Socialism is.

"Study it out" means listen to Glenn Beck and his super-awesome fairy tales for the ignorant and crazy.

These people are beyond idiotic. But Glenn Beck makes them feel intelligent and superior, so they cling to these theories as if their egos depend on them being true.

The woman couldn't answer the question about what Communism is--because she has no f'n clue.

a huge portion of the population thinks over here. They could care less about objective reality and the facts. They are willfully ignorant and have no intention of ever changing. It's truly maddening. Sometimes I find it hard to keep my sanity living in an area where the majority of the population are right wing, Fox News watching, Glenn beck listening nut jobs.

97. Welcome to DU, Don Draper!

It's truly stunning, isn't it? That's one of the first things that comes to my mind when I look at some of the dreadful, and downright disgraceful "representation" that weaseled its way into Congress a couple of years ago. What pops into my mind is "who the HELL votes for proudly ignorant assholes like this??? This shit is okay with them??? Seriously???" And you're correct - they truly do have no intention of ever changing. The "I know what I know" types. Sometimes you know you've drawn blood in arguments with them when they only idiocy they can muster as a comeback is "well, I don't know..." But don't think for a minute you started them thinking, truly thinking about anything you just said to set the record straight. Their minds will stay resolutely and defiantly unchanged.

Galling isn't it? Glad you're here. We need you. This thing isn't nailed down yet.





Now get to work.

Chris Matthews to say "So you are clueless and have no idea what is communism and communist. You are just repeating rants from some right wing nutter. "

And then perhaps given her a some references to look up and tell her to educate herself so next time when asked she won't look so silly.

84. The new McCarthyism

This trend is disturbing. A number of Tea Party conservative Republicans have been repeating the mantra that Obama and Democrats are Marxists, socialists, and communists. Representative Allen West is one of them. This woman has almost certainly seen and heard those statements and taken them to heart without having done any reading on her own. That she argues to Matthews that he ought to, "do his research and he'll see" is what makes it so cringe inducing. Because anyone who had this stuff assigned in school would know the difference between public control over the means of production, which Marx espoused, versus taxation enacted via elected representatives to provide public services. Nutty.

It's off topic, but this video I made of Allen West contains many clips of him claiming that Obama and Democrats are communists.

This is a new McCarthyism taking root in our public discourse.

111. ignorant, racist white woman behaving badly…yawn

matthews should have just ignored her instead of giving her a most undeserved 15 minutes of fame. is it a surprise that a segment of the us population is racist and bone ignorant? no. that’s why it is so important for the people with half a brain or more to vote, i am not a supporter of literacy tests, but it clear to me that people like this woman could never pass a basic civics test. anyone who thinks obama is a communist, a socialist, or “foreign,” doesn’t deserve to vote. and what’s the other option? a blue-blooded, real, live oligarch, and his church lady running mate. i wish we could split the country and let the birthers and baggers have their vulture capitalist government. let rmoney take away their mortgage interest deductions, medicare, and social security. let them overturn roe v. wade, and allow all-male legislatures to ban all forms of contraception. they’d be flocking to our country in droves. until then, we cannot let these ignorant lemmings hijack our country ever again. i’ll take a moderate over and oligarch any day. rmoney is the classic example of a person who was born with every advantage imaginable, and he is still stupid as a stump, and he has no class or character. another poster boy for white, male affirmative action, just like dubya.
