In another classic rant, MSNBC moon bat, Chris Matthews slips a gear as he tries to explain what should be done about the Gulf oil spill. He takes shots at everyone, suggesting nationalizing oil companies and even points out that in China executing the leaders of BP would even be an option. I would ask if he’s lost his mind but that’s rhetorical question. Watch the video:
Here is an excerpt of his rant, read it and let it sink in, Now ask yourself – what has happened to our country that this type of talk is even acceptable?
“I don’t think the government is doing its best. Why doesn’t the President go in there, nationalize an industry and get the job done for the people? There’s a national interest in this, not just a BP interest. We’re letting BP fix a national problem. In China, it’s a more brutal society, a more brutal society, Kate, but they execute people for this. Major industrial leaders that commit crimes like this. Failure like this. This is a serious, serious problem. It is not over. It continues to destroy a part of our planet basically. Part of our habitat, our American habitat. And everybody just sits and watches television every night. “And so that’s interesting.” And you see guys are still drawing their paychecks, still making their profits. The oil industry has been ballooning in profits this year and nobody is doing anything about it except – what are we Vatican observers now? We just watch? It is maddening that our government is – Everybody says “Capitalism is great. Unbridled free enterprise is great.” Look at it! This is great, isn’t it?!”
What the hell is wrong with this guy and the rest of the far left? Do they really believe the politics of China and Venezuela are the solutions to our problems? How is this accident the result of capitalism? They don’t have oil spills or industrial accidents in socialist countries?
Chris, let me help you out with a few facts of life:
The definition of an accident – An unexpected and undesirable event, especially one resulting in damage or harm. Example: oil spill
The U.S. Minerals Management Service is at least partially responsible for failing to provide appropriate oversight. Should we execute someone there too?
Do you really believe that BP executives are just taking their sweet time trying to figure this out? After all the sheer greed you assign to these people would surely motivate them enough to try to stop thousands and thousands of barrels from spewing into the ocean rather than their tankers.
More disturbing than Matthew’s obvious insanity is the fact that if anyone on the right went on a diatribe like this they would be crucified by the media. Where is the balance?
Restore the Republic, Reject Socialism!
“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground” – Thomas Jefferson
“nationalize” I like the sound of the word! Why don’t we nationalize MSNBC since it’s losing money, viewers, and has not served the public well? Not sure Matthews would endorse that idea since he would be booted out for some highschool you tube phenomenon. Anyhow, past performance of our government should scare anyone away from seeing an improvement. Our executive branch has been brilliant in organizing Swine Flu debacle, and can’t figure out how to propose a budget for the government. Let’s run global energy company with no budget? Of course B.O. will appoint a czar so he won’t get blamed for failures of his staff.
