Chris Matthews compares Republican gun control filibuster to Jim Crow racists VIDEO

Hardball’s Chris Matthews on Thursday again targeteed pro-Second Amendment Senators, this time comparing them to “Jim Crow” racists.

While talking about GOP politicians who threatened to filibuster the current gun control bill, Matthews spewed, “But you remember when they fought in the early ’60s about, about Jim Crow and getting rid of all those racial things down south where it says white only at the gas station, men’s room and everything?”

Talking to journalist Chuck Todd, Matthews continued, “And that was the old states of the confederacy were against any of those changes. But now is there that large a body of Republicans out there that are truly being represented by the don’t-even-vote crowd?”

 

CHRIS MATTHEWS: Why would the Republican Party basically take this stand? There’s a lot of passion out there. These victim family members, they come on this program. They go on other programs. They go to the Senator’s office. You get them on the phone. Their hearts are open. They get hurt. And they say, 31 of them, just give us a vote. And these guys say just forget about it.

MATTHEWS: You think back– it’s before my time, too. But you remember when they fought in the early ’60s about, about Jim Crow and getting rid of all those racial things down south where it says white only at the gas station, men’s room and everything? And that was the old states of the confederacy were against any of those changes. But now is there that large a body of Republicans out there that are truly being represented by the don’t-even-vote crowd?

CHUCK TODD: It’s– no, it is this slice of the Republican Party that is vibrant in these red states in these primaries.

  1. CHRISTOPHER ALLEN HORTON says:

    YES – I BELIEVE National Rifle Association NEEDS TO “RID ITSELF” OF THE “PUBLIC White Face;” AND – LAST DECEMBER – Wayne LaPierre AND Asa Hutchinson “BLUNDERED” BY WANTING ARMED GUARDS IN SCHOOLS … WITHOUT ANY CONSIDERATION OF THE IMPACT IN NEGRO SCHOOLS.

    BUT, Chris Matthews MAKES NO SENSE BY TRYING TO LINK GUN ADVOCACY WITH, “Jim Crow.” PEOPLE OF ALL RACES AND IDEOLOGIES LIKE GUNS. AND, SOME OF US COULD CARE LESS ABOUT NRA; SO, Mr. Matthews’ RACIAL LINK SEEMS TO BE AIMED AT THE 2014 ELECTIONS. WHEN The White House Occupant IS “DONE,” RAMBLINGS LIKE, Mr. Matthews’, WILL “NOT FLY.”
