MSNBC's Chris Matthews Goes On Obnoxious Rant Against ‘Idiots’ Who Vote 3rd Party Candidates Like 'Numbskull' Gary Johnson


Are you one of the many voters who feels disillusioned with the two-party system and wants to make your single, solitary voice heard by voting for a third party candidate who is possibly more aligned with your own viewpoints?

If you are, well guess what: YOU’RE AN IDIOT. Says MSNBC’s Chris Matthews.

Appearing on this afternoon’s NOW with Alex Wagner panel on MSNBC, the firebrand Democrat went on a truly sanctimonious, condescending rant against “idiots” (like this writer) who vote for third party candidates or stay home on Election Day....

War! War on Idiots.

I regret to report, war has collateral damage to those near targets. Please stand well away from idiots, until further notice - NBC Board of Directors.

War! Coming to a theater near you.

Matthews May Be More Intolerable Than Hannity

And is definitely worse than O'Reilly. I voted for the Constitution Party. I certainly can understand people supporting Gary Johnson, I just happen to feel that extreme libertarian principles (completely "free" trade, open borders, etc) are not compatible with a nation state like the USA (or any nation). To be fair I actually don't think Johnson is an extreme libertarian on all issues.

Not extreme. Unless you feel, as I do, that war is extreme.

Unless you, like I, feel that war is an extreme solution to national bickering.

If you feel that war is extreme & rarely, if ever a proper solution to bickering, then Ron Paul's reasonable foreign policy seems the best course.

Is war extreme? Mark Twain's War Prayer. Spoken from church pews. 3 minutes, plus attributions.

The War Prayer, as written by Mark Twain.

The War Prayer, as presented in this video, cuts straight to the heart of the matter -- Just the Prayer. No story.

Well, okay, it's The Prayer with background music; and contemporary images concerning current global events.

If Matthews wants to masturbate to Obama...

..please don't try to include the rest of humanity...He's worse than the satan spawn of O'Reilly and Limbaugh!

Participate in America's future- Research Ron Paul- Truth will Prevail! You too, will be proud one day, to be able to say: "I was a Ron Paul supporter."

Comcast Loses Appeal In Antitrust Class-Action Suit

Comcast &ref; Loses Appeal In Antitrust Class-Action Suit

By: By Todd Spangler 2011-08-31

A class-action lawsuit against Comcast -- alleging the cable operator violated federal antitrust laws and overcharged subscribers [hereafter referred to by NBC ® as "idiots"] -- is moving forward after a federal appeals court last week affirmed the case's class-action certification.

Behrend v. Comcast Corp., which seeks damages of more than $875 million, was originally filed in December 2003. Attorneys for the six plaintiffs claim Comcast overcharged customers for cable service, after acquiring cable providers in the Philadelphia area and obtaining a monopoly in violation of the Sherman Act.

A three-judge panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled 2-1 on Aug. 23 that the class met all the tests for a class action under federal guidelines and concluded the class could show damages using common proof. That upheld a decision by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania holding the question of "common impact" provable with class-wide evidence.

In upholding the lower court's ruling, the appeals panel said, "[W]e hold that the Court did not exceed its permissible discretion in determining that Plaintiffs established by a preponderance of evidence that they would be able to prove through common evidence (1) class-wide antitrust impact (higher cost on non-basic cable programming), and (2) a common methodology to quantify damages on a class-wide basis."

Comcast declined to comment on the ruling.

Chris Matthews, Idiot Specialist & NBC TV Host Idiotic Edition.

Making his idiotic view ride above the news, he has found perspective that suits him. This rant to limit public choice is not in the public interest. Matthews is seemingly not aware that the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) approved General Electric ®... GE's 51% sale of NBC ® to Comcast ® - with the express proviso that the newly formed monopoly better serve the public interest & not squelch public opinion.

And although the merger was approved by federal regulators, some consumer and media watchdog groups are still upset, namely because Comcast is already the nation's largest provider of cable television services.

"By controlling both information and the ways people access that information -- by cable, broadcast and the Internet -- Comcast-NBC can and will block competition, stifle innovation and silence independent, opposing viewpoints," said Josh Silver, president of nonprofit organization Free Press in a statement Saturday.

The one commissioner of the FCC who voted against the deal, Michael Copps, seemed to share those concerns. "At the end of the day, the public interest requires more -- much more -- than it is receiving," Copps said in a statement earlier this month.

Still, the FCC and Justice Department did attach several conditions to the merger. Comcast agreed to expand local news coverage, add more programs for Spanish-speaking viewers and offer Internet access to schools and libraries.

[Comcast is expanding its idiotic coverage to quell FCC fears (stated in its GE - Comcast merger proviso) that Comcast (51% owner) & GE (49% owner) is indeed a monopoly that is too big to fail.]

Jeez, even his colleagues wanted him to just *shut up*. I wish I could hear what the others were really thinking when Matthews was on that rant. He makes himself look like the idiot.

Dude His colleagues are

Larry O'donnell
Al Sharpton
Rachel Madcow
and Obama himself.

They love his trashy mouth.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein arrested at Texas Keystone XL blockade
By Stephen C. Webster : Thursday, November 1, 2012

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein was arrested on Wednesday while attempting to deliver supplies to activists in Texas who’re camping in trees to block construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Actress Daryl Hannah, known for her roles in “Splash” and “Kill Bill,” was arrested earlier this month when she joined a neighbor who was demonstrating against construction on her property. Despite having the landowner’s permission to be there, both Hannah and her neighbor were arrested for trespassing.

The [TransCanada’s Keystone XL] lan to build their pipeline across the U.S.-Canada border [down to Texac gulf shore] was denied following mass protests at the White House in which hundreds of activists were arrested for committing civil disobedience — including Dr. James Hansen, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Although the pipeline plan was [delayed], it was due to a technicality: Republicans in Congress mandated a deadline on the decision that the State Department could not meet, but they’ve since campaigned against President Barack Obama by blaming him for their own actions. Nevertheless, the Obama administration invited TransCanada to reapply, although a decision won’t be made on their proposal until 2013 at the earliest. Meanwhile, construction of the pipeline’s southern leg began in earnest across Texas.

Daughter of 1776 American Revolutionists


Chris Matthews is an ASS. How much is he paid to convince the American people we are stuck with the BS two party system....? ASS...

Ron Paul was right----again

And once again, Ron Paul was right. Another inconvenient reality for some.

*yawn* ....more ad hominems

*yawn* ....more ad hominems from the corporate media? btw, chris matthews looks like a goblin(weird looking face w/ especially wide mouth).

Chris Matthews

Chris Mathews calling someone an "idiot" is like Santa Clause calling someone "Jolly."

“...taxes are not raised to carry on wars, but that wars are raised to carry on taxes”
Thomas Paine, Rights of Man

or like

Bill O'Reilly calling someone 'obnoxious'...

Clearly presstitutes in the

Clearly presstitutes in the mainstream media have gone all in demonizing independent voting public. Shameless mainstream media wolves who masquerades themselves as the voice of the people where in fact they are the voice of their corporate handlers who misinforms, always sponsored and will never give you accurate information. How much he's getting paid to be all this obnoxious to the real awaken voting public only he knows. This is really a sad day for the American people to have a media personality this biased and so rotten to the core. And also awaken people never listen to main stream media, unless you crave purely for entertainment.

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Just goes to show you

that the GOP and DNC are all in bed together. They all want 3rd party to go away.

The minute you hear the MSM or the DNC channel(msnbc) denounce something, it's a good sign that it's worth standing up for.

Time for an MSNBC boycott until Matthews is...

...sanctioned for his insulting comments.

Who's up for starting a push for a focused, targeted boycott of MSNBC over this?

Between Matthews and Mika

Between Matthews and Mika Brzinski on Morning Joe, I wish I could not only boycott MSNBC, but get all advertisers to do the same.
Morning Joe is tolerable thanks to Joe Scarborough, and the other regulars, even though I disagree with them most of the time, are at least civil. But Mika with her *sighing* and eye rolling, I just can't stand her!

Do they have enough viewers

Do they have enough viewers for it to even matter?
