Chris Matthews’ obsession with town-hall attendees and what he perceives to be their violent tendencies towards President Obama is reaching a fever pitch. This morning on MSNBC he made the following statement:
You know there’s going to be a lot of talk about the tragic blessings of the Kennedy family, and the curse. And it’s all nonsense. These people were courageous risk takers. Kathleen Kennedy, the girl, the oldest daughter, she was killed with her lover traveling on a plane ride she never should have taken through terrible weather in Europe. Joe Kennedy, Jr. took a mission that nobody should have taken in a plane loaded with dynamite to go blow up the V-1 rocket sites. Jack Kennedy was killed in an open car in Dallas in the midst of the most hated–it’s like the mood we’re in right now.
I saw this live and I wasn’t sure if I had heard him correctly because he was in full froth mode. Hot Air confirms my ears were not deceiving me.
Question: Where was Chris Matthews’ outrage when anti-war protesters burned President George W. Bush in effigy? Or when protesters held signs that called for Bush’s death? Or when a “documentary” depicting the assassination of Bush was shown at the Toronto Film Festival on the eve of the fifth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks?
