Dana Loesch fights back as Chris Matthews paints the Tea Party as racists

This was a great clip! Finally Chris Matthews has a conservative with brains on his show and she fights off, and I might add with much awesomeness, these racist claims that Matthews was trying to stick to the tea party. I think I have a new hero!



In the words of a famous commercial, “I’m lovin’ it!”

Outstanding Dana. This is one lady who can hold her own. I have seen her on a few different interviews. Check out how she rips into Elliot Spietzer.

Dana Loeshe has yet to state what the TP would do if in power. She speaks in vague terms and giggles when confronted with her inaccuracies. She’s a pretty girl who has been playing the “cute cheerleader” card too long.

Hoping that the Tea Party doesn't squander its
momentum by being co-opted by 'the usual suspects'
on the BOGUS right –and cluelessly enmeshed GOP.

Hoping that they turn out tainted, Red China sellout
faux 'America-Firsters' (i.e. Red China sellout apologists )
like Pat Buchanan.

Hoping they demand their 'partial' conservatives a la
Ann Coulter START addressing this looming, indeed,
gargantuan issue. So far the 'outspoken daring' Coulter
has maintained STONE COLD SILENCE on the overawing
question of the time 'WHO lost America —-to Red China?'

Your response is not necessarily accurate either. The amount of people using the internet today is way much larger that in 2000. And the use in the past year and a half has probably increased exponentially compared to the time span between 2000-2008,…so a year and a half id enough time to catch up.

I just did a google search on the same thing (5/11/2010)

bush hitler: “About 6,440,000 results”
obama hitler: “About 6,440,000 results”

Does google cap out all search results at “About 6,440,000 results”? Or did someone at google, after hearing about this interview, write some code into the search engine to come up with the exact same search results when the search terms are entered out of a sake for political neutrality?

Well, when I put the search terms in quotes (“bush hitler” and “obama hitler” I got the following results:

“bush hitler”: “About 67,800 results”
“obama hitler”: “About 38,700 results”

I think someone has managed to delete some of the references because when I first googled, I got about 7.5 million on Obama. But my point is, Obama has only been president for a little more than a year. So you are comparing 8 years of Bush to 1 year of Obama. A more fair comparison would be if you were able to compare Bush's first year ONLY, with Obama's first year. Bush had a lot of support during his first year even though he was appointed by the Supreme Court, not elected in a landslide as Obama was.

He had two terms and your so called point only applies to his second victory, try to be rational.

I don't see how Google search results are a good measure of anything. Most of the people using the term “Obama Hitler” were probably only quoting “dumb tea-party folk” and making fun of people who had those Obama Hitler signs (which was the left wing LaRouchePAC guys, not tea partiers).

You may get the same thing with people defending Bush against “Bush Hitler” stuff, but I think it's fair to say the media loves Obama more than Bush, and he's probably got more defenders out there.

There's not a lot we can do other than acknowledge the fact that “nigger” is a term which from Latin means “lower than dirt” which was used towards slaves hence why there's no way in heck it can ever become an “acceptable” word to use in normal language. I'm not going to say that you're lying when you say you were actually called a “nigger” by a Tea Party member. It's just the fact that the Tea Party as a whole is being demonized because of these few hateful, ignorant racists that gets me angry. We weren't racist when we were protesting Bush's TARP bailout in 2007. Why in the world are we suddenly racist as a whole now just because the president's black? Why is it all about him being black? Is it because we're white? This whole nonsense about racism and the “rousing of violence” is all just… Read more »

The whole tea party becomes demonized because when a woman is kicked in the head, or a member of the press is handcuffed and detained by private security, the heads of the TP don’t say anything. But they don’t say anything because they are inciting this violence and don’t know how to control their mob. Nor do they see how this will all come back on them.

Chris Matthews and Frank Rich are indiots. The tea party movement has nothing to do with diversity or any other lame argumnets put forth by the Left. We are just sick and tired of the federal government and the Left trying to force their socialist leaning policies on our lives. What a crock. Dana chewed up both of these idiots despite their efforts to talk over her. Dana used sound points to counter the silliness by the other two. Great job Dana.

I just Googled 'Blue states secede' and the first page brings up article after article in Nov. 2004 through 2005 that I looked at talking about how or should the blue states secede. There was also talk about annexing states to Canada.

The secession talk was huge after Bush was re-elected in 2004. Funny how the Liberals have amnesia about that.

Oh, come now. We all know THAT'S just CODE for “nigger.” Right, catholic? HAHA!! Of course we ALSO ALL know that the actions of one man is representative of the whole group as well. I mean…c'mon now. Yeesh. I think the ONLY people I've EVER been racist to are the ones who decide to pull the card. If yall WANT to pull the race card, then I'll GET racist with you JUST BECAUSE. But then again…America's FREEDOM depends on me biting my tongue instead. I'll wait until we've finally won the fight and THEN start calling people like you out on your BS again.

Matthews concentrated on George III being unelected, but failed to mention that Parliament was elected. The problem was that British North America had no MPs, which meant that they were being taxed with no representation

-I can't deny there are jerks who are too stupid to respond with anything but an ugly slur. Your tee-shirt slogan would upset many people who don't feel YOUR community deserves healthcare. In the community called USA, people have equal opportunities and it is up to them to make choices. If there are circumstances beyond their control, the community of USA will provide for them. A response to your tee shirt would be to call you a moocher.

Gee, this did not go so well for Chris Matthews did it? I imagine that he picked Dana Loesch because his wonderful elitist sensibilities told him that Dana would be overwhelmed by the intellectual gifts of a Princeton professor.

I was also humored by the fact that the Princeton professor invalidated the premise of Frank Rich and correctly pointed out that transitional social change is the catalyst for the Tea Party anger and not racism.

Dana was very strong and handled this debate in a truly masterful way. She was there with the right answer every step of the way. Dana Loesch is definitely on my radar as one of the great patriots defending our nation.

Secessionist language?????

The most prominent use of secessionist language was Lawrence O'Donnell on the McLaughlin Group the week after Kerry lost. He outright said that coastal states should move to divide themselves from the south, midwest, and mountain west which continue to vote for GOP candidates.

Why is it not possible to be opposed to this without being a racist. Many of us see this for what it is, a dramatic expansion of Federal power at the expense of our liberty. Nothing that has ever been undertaken by the Feds to this point compares to this. It will destroy the private health care system in this country and will eventually make us wards of the state. To conservatives, this is blindingly obvious and it is infuriating to be labeled as a racist or reactionary in the face of what we believe to be a complete disaster.

The professor talks about authoritarian impulses and racism as if we need to fear a tyranny from the right. Tyranny almost always comes from the left and many of us believe that this is an important step down that road.

I laughed when the professor spoke. She just seemed so hilarious when explaining her “intellectual” points. Yes, I followed her train of hilarity in getting down to the basis for all those people to have become “so angry about change”… too funny!

Wasn't there a movie about the Bush family? Didn't that movie ponder the idea if Bush had been assassinated? Please Progressives, I know it's hard, but let's show some REAL intelligence and be intellectually honest. What's fair is fair. Progressives also show their idiocy when they throw out labels of racist just because they're to lazy or robotic to debate the core issues. Next they'll start psychoanalyzing our childhood to validate their Alinsky tactics.

Kind of like Ed Schultz when he tried to interview that one Republican who pointed out his Dick Cheney's “rip out his heart” speal and then backpeddled all over it, then said “Sorry, folks. That didn't go how it was supposed to go at all.” Gee…REALLY ED? Haha.

Hardball probably thought that they were going to make the Tea Party look bad by having a little known (at least to MSNBC viewers) radio host be on with a professor from Princeton.

Matthews probably thought Lacewell would do his dirty work and when she didn't, he decided to go after Loesch himself. By the end when he realized that he wasn't successful in making her look bad, he looked frustrated.
