Ace: Chris Matthews Is a Racist

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:11 am



Whenever someone asks me why I read Ace of Spades,* I point to a post like this one — a rant about Chris Matthews’s racial condescension towards Obama:

Chris Matthews: Boy Howdy, I Can’t Tell You How Wonderful It Is to See A Black Man With a Wife and a Steady Paycheck!

More racial nuance from Chris “For a moment I almost forgot he was black” Matthews.

“Almost pluperfect,” he calls Obama.

His entire speech here is racist. Yes, racist. Most politicians “do everything right” in terms of getting an education, securing gainful employment, getting married and raising a family.

. . . .

Barack Obama’s agenda is Bill Clinton’s raised to the ninth power.

Now, if I didn’t oppose Obama, wouldn’t that be only due to the color of his skin, Chris? If I opposed a weak-tea form of Obamaism under Clinton, wouldn’t only race be my reason for accepting it from Obama?

Any black readers, take note: Here’s your totally-not-racist white liberal establishment, handing out gold stars and Certificates of Effort as if you’re mentally challenged.

Beautiful.

*Nobody ever actually asks me why I read Ace of Spades.

  4. Yes, Ace is a must read. I laugh out loud sometimes–and his commentary is spot on. I guess they are kind of like the Trey Parker of the blogosphere.

    I’m beginning to like Skittles and Valu Rite vodka too. :)

    Heh. Don’t forget the hobo-huntin’. That’s key.

    Gotta brace myself a bit when going over there cause it’s not exactly crumpets and tea; more like championship boxing night at the arena. But it sure is hilarious (I like all the sockpuppeting of public figures best), not to mention that Ace can righteously scorch when he goes on a rant. If South Park conservatism had a mascot blog, AOSHQ’d be it.

  6. Did Jerk-Wad actually say that about a paycheck?

  7. Racism is alive and well in the good old USA. It was bipartisan racism that elected an inexperienced and unqualified Barack Obama to the presidency, and it’s left-wing racism that passed his anti-American agenda, and it’s exactly the same left-wing racism which refuses to acknowledge the disastrous consequences Obama’s failed policies have inflected on our nation today.

    Uncle Sam has met the racist and he is us.

  8. Almost pluperfect? He’s almost the Latin equivalent of the English past perfect? I guess things are tense in the White House.

  9. Don’t forget the pudding. Lots and lots of pudding.
    And bacon.
    Mmmmmmmmm… bacon.

  10. With Obama in the White House we are SCROD.

    I believe that is the past pluperfect subjunctive of screwed.

  11. I disagree with Ace all the time. What really endears him to me is how he is so frank about how he changes his mind or comes to conclusions or reaches frustration in a debate.

    He’s got a very honest blog. It’s also one of the best when it’s really hitting its stride. And the overnight threads provide a decent aggregate of garbage to read when I’m tired of politics, which I almost always am (I know that’s all I talk about here).

  12. Dustin – this is mostly a political blog. It’s easier to talk about not-politics when there are not-politics posts. :)

    and here i thought it was because you were a moron…. 😀

    me, i like the hawt chicks in stompy boots: pass the pudding please

  14. The Saga of the “Magic Negro” continues …

  15. I read it because I like to learn new words like, “Nasty Adolph”.

  16. pajama momma – I agree, learning new words is important. Plus I usually pick up some nice insults on each visit.

  17. ZOMFG!!! Pudding and killing hobos are obviously racist codewords. Racists.

    JD (803412)

  18. Matthews the tool. He’s implying that if we are against Obama it must be due to racism, because he didn’t achieve his office through affirmative action.

    All of a sudden it isn’t kosher to oppose a sitting president. From 2001 to 2008 it was somehow different; back then one, and Matthews was one (oh he’s ONE all right!) could oppose the president freely. Wonder what’s changed . . .

    And YES, the simultaneous condescension towards Obama — the “good” negro. Don’t be afraid, everybody; this is ‘the good one’. Pathetic.

  19. I figure you read Ace to close some cold cases about hobo’s found with empty Skittles wrappers and drained Valu-Rite vodka bottles in the vicinity.

  20. Matthews was never very bright but I get the feeling that the blood flow to his brain ain’t what it should be.

  21. Ace is my kind of moron. Chrissy Matthews not so much.

    PatAZ (9d1bb3)

  22. Uncle Sam has met the racist and he is us.

    I was told there would be no Pogo references on this thread.

    Dmac (d61c0d)

  23. Ace is King of the Morons and his blog is the ‘Red Eye’ of the conservative blogosphere. Legend has it that he once did a catch and release on the same hobo four times in a single day! It’s hard enough to catch one in a day let alone the same one FOUR times! And he was drunk on ValuRite Vodka to boot!
