Chris Matthews guest cites ‘study’
on ‘racist,’ ‘homophobic’ tea party

Washington Times [DC], by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/21/2013 3:20:47 PM

MSNBC Host Chris Matthews railed against the tea party again Wednesday night when he invited a guest who claims the movement is racist, homophobic and xenophobic. Mr. Matthews interviewed a University of Washington assistant professor, Christopher Parker, who conducted a study that found strains of prejudice within the tea party. “My study suggests that there is a strain of racism in the tea party,” the professor said. “There’s definitely a racist strain, but it goes beyond racism. It goes to homophobia and xenophobia as well, Chris.” The “Hardball” host then went on to speculate that tea party folks

I claim there is a huge racist strain running thru the alphabet channels.
And I can actually prove it (unlike this twit of a professor).

When I googled "tea party irrelevant," I got 147,000 hits.

How come this professor spent time and resources on a study?

How come Matthews is still taking about it?

Do you suppose it isn´t as irrelevant as "they" told us? /s

Wow! A breakthrough analysis from an ASSISTANT professor at Podunk U. And I´m sure there are research data and peer-reviews to back that up?
Funny thing, I just completed my own study that shows that 80% of college professors are socialists. The other 20%? Why, they´re communists.

The only time this "Chris Matthews" entity gets any attention is when he tweaks the right. Why not just ignore him? He´s paid no mind by the left, as shown by his dwindling ratings.

Same for that "Piers Morgan" thing, which attracts attention by making noise about guns.

Cancel your cable TV and let them get jobs in retail, where they can mingle with the downtrodden they care about.

While looking for stories to post, I go out of my way to ignore the Chris Matthews and his ilk childish and snarky comments. Why? It´s not news that he is under the influence of the 0bamaNation and that his ratings would be a flatline like most of the dRATS losers. I don´t want to give him the satisfaction of seeing hits to his articles, wherever they are written. To me, out of sight, out of mind.

If he repents, or suddenly drops dead like Tim Russert, then, I´ll post the story. Mourning his lost then or any of these useless idiots would be a lie [like 0bama does] on my part.

Translation into plain English and plain logic:

The TEA Party is composed of all kinds of people; or maybe better said, people of all kinds might be reported as "associated with" the TEA Party. Especially if we want to slam it. And some of those people might have biases against other races, etc. And for now, I will ignore the fact that biased people can and will be found "associated with" any organization, across any range of connection one might select.

Actually, I can give a few examples that shows the left is perfectly comfortable using race to smear conservatives of color. The names Pat Oliphant, Ted Rall, and Jeff Danziger should prove that point. All have had very racist cartoons published in the mainstream press. The left cheered these guys on. One must conclude that the Left are actually racists to their very core.

The racists are those upper-income, white northerners who want to tell blacks, hispanics and asians what to do.

It was white liberal democrats in the North who voted AGAINST the 13th amendment (anyone watch the movie Lincoln?).

It was white liberal democrats in the North who wouldn´t vote for the 1964 Civil Rights Act - only passed because of Republicans.

It´s white liberals who control the Democrat party establishment - even the president´s Cabinet.

It´s white liberals who dominate the environmental movement that´s pushing for higher gasoline, food and electrity prices(which hurt the poor and middle class the most).

Leftists/Democrats represent a text book example of psychological projection on a mass scale. Psychological projection was first conceptualized by Sigmund Freud as a defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own negative attributes by ascribing them to objects or persons in the outside world instead. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting faults onto others. They are so totally racist to their very core that naturally they believe that everyone else must be just as racist as they are!!! Slavery, the KKK, lynchings, bombings, Jim Crow laws and total resistance and obstruction of civil rights laws are their sad and criminal history!!!

If there is a patron saint of the TEA parties, it is Ayn Rand. She said, "Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism."

Those who allege racism against the TEA parties are illiterate.

Poll: Half of Louisiana voters

A new Republican poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in a potentially tough spot for reelection, with more than half of respondents open to reelecting a new senator next year. The survey, from GOP firm Magellan Strategies, reveals 51 percent of respondents say it´s "time to give a new person a chance" in office. Thirty-nine percent agreed that Landrieu has performed her job well enough to "deserve to be reelected." Though those numbers are bad news for Landrieu, they´re not a clear indication half of Louisiana voters will vote to oust her.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan- Secretary of State John Kerry met Thursday with the Pakistan´s new prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, whose election marked the first peaceful transfer of power from one civilian government to another. The Obama administration is seeking to rebalance the tumultuous relationship with the nuclear-armed Pakistan in an effort to work together on counterterrorism, to start peace talks with the Taliban as the U.S. winds down its involvement in neighboring Afghanistan, and to coordinate on other issues of strategic interest.

Undocumented immigrants with temporary legal status soon will be allowed to pay in-state tuition rates at all Ohio public colleges as long as they meet other residency requirements. Until now, most of the state’s public two- and four-year schools have charged those students out-of-state or international rates that can be as much as three times what Ohio students pay. Today, Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey sent a letter notifying the state’s college presidents about the change, after state Attorney General Mike DeWine determined that immigrant students now may qualify for in-state tuition.

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans.

His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan.
