Chris Matthews Accuses Ted Cruz of Racism Against “Brown People”

Why does this man hate Latinos?

Why does this man hate Latinos?

Chris Matthews is a fat white man who is an expert on racism. Like an 1880s gold prospector, Matthews can find racism anywhere. Sometimes he just spends hours in the frozen foods aisle randomly pointing at things and screaming “Racism!”

Now, fat, white Chris Matthews has discovered that Ted Cruz is racist against “Brown people”. It would be unfair to point out that Ted Cruz is browner than Chris Matthews. Chalk is browner than Chris Matthews. Also smarter. And more capable of doing his job.

Still Matthews has once again achieved a critical triumph in critical race theory by not only manufacturing a racism accusation out of thin air, but accusing a Latino senator of being racist against “Brown people”.

SENATOR TED CRUZ (R-TEXAS): Having spent the past month up in D.C., it is really great to be back in America. [Laughter and applause]

(END VIDEO CLIP)

MATTHEWS: Howard Fineman’s editorial director of the Huffington Post, and David Corn is Washington Bureau chief for Mother Jones. Both are of course MSNBC political analysts.

Howard, this isn’t a casual reference. This “We’re Americans, we white people out here in Texas, as opposed to people who live in the big cities: the ethnics, the blacks, the browns. Those people in Washington, those liberals, they’re not Americans.”

Let’s start with the obvious. Chris Matthews is insane.

At this point, he could just roll a clip of a Republican sneezing and launch into a five minute explanation of how racist the sneeze was.

Ted Cruz gave a usual opening remark that probably a hundred members of Congress from both parties gave when back in their home district. Hating on Washington is pretty standard, especially if you’re trying to distinguish yourself from other politicians.

Chris Matthews, channeling a full barrel of crazy, announces that what Ted Cruz is really saying is that he hates black and brown people. Matthews appears to have forgotten that Ted Cruz is kinda “ethnic” himself and that Texas is probably more racially diverse than Matthews’ neighborhood, but being a liberal who cries racism means never having to say you’re sorry.

Cruz delivered his remarks in San Antonio. The 7th largest city in America with a population of 1.3 million. It’s twice as big as Washington D.C. and more diverse. Matthews could have found that out in 2 seconds, but aside from being a crazy liar, he’s also a plain old liar.

And then, to win the award for least self-awareness in all of human history, Matthews says, “This is McCarthyism writ large. Disagree with this guy and be prepared for the accusations.”

Imagine that.
Disagree with Ted Cruz and he’ll probably make some crazy McCarthyite accusation like calling you a racist for announcing that you hate Washington politics.

    Statistics have been used for more than 40 years that I know of to prove racial discrimination in the workplace.
    I understand 95% of blacks vote for Obama. Who’s racist ?

  • v

    Wasn’t Obama who said “paraphrasing” that you cannot get things done in Washington, they have to be done from outside this town. I guess Obama is racist against Black people, since they are the majority in that city. Mattews is a buffoon. He gets paid specifically for saying nonsense like that, it is after all MSNBC

    I have tried to watch PMSNBC ( I am referring to the so called males known for their emotional breakdowns when interviewing non-liberals who place facts before feelings). It is for insane people who believe that govt should control everything ( except George Soros and especially the dreaded Koch Brothers), do everything and believe that the 2.8 Billion dollars the US Federal Reserve will print today, are worth 2.8 Billion dollars.

    uh, Chris Matthews, we call your rant, PROJECTION, (where YOUR feelings and values seem to become the behavior of others)
    . In other words, the racicst twit is YOU!

    I bet if Matthews neighborhood were half as diverse as San Antonio he would move to a “better” neighborhood.

    Why pay attention to a news reader

  • herb benty

    Mathews and fellow leftist loons have switched from Sarah Palin bashing to Mr. Cruz. Both were/are threats to big government largesse and need to be taken down. Cruz, being Hispanic needs special attention. Why don’t Americans SEE that any normal thinking person is demonized by the Left?

  • Inwhomi

    Making a comment such as that only separates people, we need leaders for all the peoples of America. If he does not think Washington DC is a part of the United States; oh well, maybe they do not teach this in Canada where he went to grade school.

      I think you missed this part of the article:
      “Ted Cruz gave a usual opening remark that probably a hundred members of Congress from both parties gave when back in their home district. Hating on Washington is pretty standard, especially if you’re trying to distinguish yourself from other politicians.”

    What else could we expect from a man(?) who has chills run down his leg over an Obama speech?

    Of course he’s racist. He’s a Republican, and a right winger. Anything that comes out of their mouths is racist! DONT YOU PEOPLE GET IT?

    Democrats will say “Our Jim Crow, KKK, Opposing Civil Rights, Opposing Women’s Voting days are over”. Today we are no longer racist. . .

    “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” – (Democrat) Senator Joe Biden

    “a light-skinned African American with no N*gro dialect, unless he wanted to have one” – (Democrat) Senator Harry Reid

    ‘There was something about him that made me wary, a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white.’ – Barack Obama

    All the Progressives have is demonization, lies, and deception….their policies cannot stand on their own, they are destructive, and the American people know it.

    Crazy Chrissy is obsessed with flesh tones and hatred of republicans.
    He attacks innocuous,irrelevant comments like a rabid rat terrier ; snarling,gnawing and shaking them trying to find any racist innuendo. If he doesn’t find any,he just makes them up. Because he just knows every word a republican utters is a racist code.
    He doesn’t have any points to be made or arguments to win when he erupts in his melodramatic spittle laden racist rants. He just loves to hate. And make a fool of himself.

    He doth protest too much.

    Liberals really aren’t Americans for the simple reason that they hate America. They may have American passports and birth certificates, but that’s a mere legalism and beside the point. In the absence of an American ethnicity, language, or religion, the one requirement for being an American is believing that the country is an exceptional place with an exceptional destiny, “a shining city upon the hill”, the “home of the free and the land of the brave”. Though this is hardly a stretch given the country’s prodigious accomplishments, liberals scoff at that idea. In fact, they think if America is exceptional in any way at all it’s for being more rapacious, more violent, more oppressive, more vulgar than anyplace else. What they want for America ranges from a larger, less icy Sweden to the Soviet Union had Trotsky prevailed over Stalin. And failing those, even a revived, modernized caliphate looks good to them, al-Andalus with iPads. Chris Matthews is a United States citizen, but there isn’t one American bone in his body.

    3 weeks ago Cruz said Washington needs 100 Jesse Helms. That pretty much sums it up.

    Chris Matthews is right. Ted Cruz, who is a white Cuban, does not like to be put into the same boat as the mestizos of Mexico and Central America.
    The same is true of Marco Rubio, but Marco is a dishonest, shameless self promoter, willing to sell out the United States.
    I do not blame Ted Cruz. The white ruling class in Latin America always had the same attitude and rightly so.

    Chris Matthews is right, but that only means that he is very wrong about the underlying issue.
    Chris Matthews is a masochistic, deluded, sick, self-hating, anti-white racist of the worst kind.
    Ted Cruz, I am proud of you.

    “fat & white”, “a full barrel of crazy” and “insane” are crude adhominem attacks and represent a growing tact that the new right is displaying in any and all political discourse. What a shame…
