Minutes after Barack Obama came out for gay marriage, Wednesday, Chris Matthews appeared on MSNBC to compare opponents of such unions to “wolves” and to link them to supporters of slavery. Warning of political danger to the President, Matthews spewed, “The dens are opening. The gates are opening of wolves coming out for this, the Karl Roves.”
After describing liberalism as the force that brought all social change to America, the Hardball anchor warned about the armies that feed off “resentment.” Matthews lectured, “That army has been out there during Jim Crow. It was out there during abolition, during suffrage. There’s always an army that feeds on change and feeds against it.”
Exit question. Is Matthews on drugs? Or does he NEED meds?
