By The Right Scoop


This a lengthy clip but well worth it. Beck and crew takes Chris Matthews to task again (no nuclear beck this time) over statements he made last night as he continues his obsession with Michele Bachmann. He blundered it quite well and Beck is very happy to point it out.

Enjoy!

    We can always remember that old palindrome: A Man, A Plan, A Canal – Suez

    I’m assuming Chris doesn’t remember it or hates it because it’s a Palindrome.

        A Man, A Plan, A Canal
        What Nasser wrought when he seized Suez a half century ago.
        By Arthur Herman

        ON JULY 26, 1956, President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt nationalized the Suez Canal, at that time the most vital international waterway in the world. The Middle East, and all of us, still live under the shadow of the fateful events his decision triggered 50 years ago. Even more than the Cold War, the Suez crisis has shaped the world we live in. And at its heart was the biggest American foreign policy blunder since the War of 1812.

        The socialist Proudhon said the origin of property was theft. The same could be said of the modern Middle East. By any objective standard, Nasser’s seizing of the canal was theft. Until that July, it had been administered by a private company headquartered in Paris and owned by international shareholders. Nasser had even signed an agreement recognizing the Canal Zone’s autonomy two years earlier, which allowed Great Britain to pull out the last troops from its bases in Suez.

          Thank you!!

        I apologize first if I’m reiterating anything you may already know and it sucks for me when a joke falls flat when having to explain it.
        Basically, I’m making fun of Mathews for confusing the Panama Canal with the Suez canal. When the Panama Canal was build by the U.S., “A Man, A Plan, A Canal – Panama” was a common slogan to get support behind the project for the Teddy Roosevelt administration. The U.S. construction of the Canal came after the French failed to build a canal in Panama, but the French had based their design on the same style of canal they had used previously for the Suez Canal.
        The Chris Mathews dig comes from my purposely misquoting the Panama slogan for a similar slogan for Suez. “A Man, A Plan, Canal -Suez” written backwards doesn’t work for a palindrome because it would be, “Zeus Lan, A Canal – Panama”

        The Palin-drome context, I’m betting, needs no explanation.

          Thank you! I had yet to hear the unbelievable geography lesson by Matthews!! I am still amazed.

          Correct! the second comment is, well, pretty good among those of us who appreciate puns.

          Thirdly, see interesting article below from williamm, too.

    I’m sick of hearing Beck talk about Bachmann. Stop the obsession!

  • john rosgen

    Beck admitted that Washington and many other founders had slaves. Thus he admitted that Matthews was right and Bachmann was wrong (ie the founders who wrote the Constitution didn’t fight to end slavery).

      Some acrually liked being slaves, FYI, at least that is what my public education in the 6th grade told me. Never had to worry about food or a roof over their head, sorta like now.

        It’s funny how the brain works sometimes, I had to go back and look for the misspelling, I read right past it without a thought.

        When we get right down to the slavery issue the truth of the matter is that only 4% of the population in the South were slave owners. Think about that for a minute. We all get painted with the slavery brush but the true number of slave owners was minuscule. Factor in the North and now you’re under 1% of the population were slave owners in pre-antebellum America.

      there were several founders who were ardent abolishionists…can you name more than 5 signers of the Constitution? How many of them were clergymen? Why did they write the 3/5th’s rule?

      Either you’re just being coy, or you’re completely ignorant of our country’s history.

      Thats like me saying, our ancestors sought to abolish slavery, and you coming here and say, no they didn’t because this person had slaves. How did that debunk what I said? It didn’t

      They didn’t fight for free internet or a friends and family cellphone program either. To their credit they also did not institute a cash for clunkers program.

      It looks like I missed the “edited by a moderator” part though. I had more for ya’ if more had been warranted.

      Superb reasoning.

      Of course, as Beck pointed out, she didn’t say Founders.

      Of course, as anyone can discern, just because some owned slaves does not mean all owned slaves. There were founders who were abolitionists.

      Inability to reason and critically think seems to be specific to progressives.

      BUT the founders did make very careful considerations in the drafting of our constitution by removing one of the original drafts which said “life, liberty and the preservation of property” all because they knew we would never be able to end slavery with that in there. Also the 3/5’s clause was designed to keep the south from having too much control of our early congress.

      So in a way, yes our founding fathers DID fight behind the scenes to at least lay the ground work to end slavery.

    I think Chris knows any credibility he ever had is gone. He went all in for this President. He dove passed the point of objectivity and didn’t leave any avenue of retreat. All of the Presidents failures are a reflection of him now.

    I was laughing so hard … thank God for a pause button. Chris Matthews is obviously a very slow learner or possibly chronically self-deluded. Did he learn nothing from the firing of Olbermann? Is he in denial of the outright rejection by the viewing audience as to the content and merit of MSNBC’s programming? Oh well, some horses will drink from the water trough when led to it…others will stand in thirsty defiance.

    Liberals never have any problem rationalizing, defending, and lionizing the brutal behavior of cultures in the name of diversity. As long as that culture is not white.

    Mohamed was a brutal warlord and bandit who raped and pillaged his way across the Arab world, killed entire villages and enslaved entire peoples, and enshrined child molestation into his religious doctrine. But hey, you gotta understand he was just a man of his time. He was only doing what was a normal part of his culture at the time. You can’t judge Mohamed by today’s standards.

    African slavery existed long before the colonization of America. African tribes produced the slaves needed for the world slave trade market. But, you know, you can’t blame Africans for their part in the world slave trade. They were just doing what their culture pretty much demanded at the time. The real evil wasn’t the suppliers of slaves, but the market for them. The Western market, that is. Let’s not talk about the fact that Africa still has a slave trade today. Desperate victims of Western imperialism do desperate things.

    The native Americans, or Indians as they were known, were a disparate group of tribes who were at war with each other for a millennium before the first white man came to the continent. They, too, were known to be keep slaves. But that’s different. Um, don’t ask why it’s different. It just is.

    Slavery was not invented in America and it still exists in many parts of the world today. America is unique because slavery was outlawed here less than 100 years from our founding. That’s an incredible achievement in the history of the world. A brand new country. A brand new culture. In less than a hundred years that country and culture outlawed a practice that had been accepted throughout history, and is still accepted in some parts of the world today.

    Anyone who refuses to see that is anti-America.

      I think you’ve described perfectly the very essence of the PC world that we live in and why it’s so difficult to have a real debate about serious subjects in this country.

      I’ve had conversations like that so many times with people bringing up all your points here and they usually just sit their speechless. It’s such an honest and brutal approach to the debate that there really isn’t much that can be said after wards except for, “oh I didn’t realize that.”

  • Complusss

    Glenn Beck .. go back and hear what Michele Bachmann had said .. “the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States” .. the documents being referred tis the constitution ..

    As usual twisting and misleading folks .. tch tch ..

    From here on out, every time I heard Chris Mathews speak I’ll always think of Stu’s impersonation.
