Stupid beyond belief…
(NewsBusters) — Pogrom: etymology–Yiddish, from Russian, literally, devastation. “An organized massacre of helpless people; specifically, such a massacre of Jews.” — Merriam-Webster
Chris Matthews has pulled off the rare unassisted triple-play of inanity. On this evening’s Hardball, he:
1. argued that enforcing the Arizona immigration law would put police officers in danger because illegals caught in a stop would be under tremendous “moral pressure” to use violence to escape;
2. repeatedly abused a Republican guest. For the sin of disagreeing with him on immigration law, Matthews variously slimed Arizona state Sen. Rick Murphy as a “B.S. artist,” a “hopeless right-winger,” and “not serious;” and
3. most egregiously, claimed that deporting illegal immigrants from the US would constitute a “pogrom.”
FOR EQUATING THE GENOCIDE JEWS SUFFERED IN EASTERN EUROPE TO THE ENFORCEMENT OF FEDERAL IMMIGRATION LAWS, CHRIS SHOULD APOLOGIZE OR BE FIRED.
SERIOUSLY: ONLY A PERSON WITH DEEP ANTISEMITIC VIEWS COULD MAKE THE COMPARISON MATTHEWS DID.
