Chris Matthews: Where Do These Glenn Beck Characters Get Their “Weird-Ass” Flag And God Ideas
Today, whilst waxing poetic on President Obama‘s speech in Cleveland during which Obama noted ‘we are Americans before we are Democrats’ Matthews launched into a Norman Rockwell inspired tirade asserting that “nothing is more bothersome to me…this notion that somehow only conservative and right-wingers are patriotic is nonsense!” He went on.
The way that crowd reacted out there in middle America, in Cleveland, a hard hit area, when you just say America they go wild. How do they get away with, these Glenn Beck characters, the idea they got some weird-ass monopoly over the flag and God. Who gave it to them? I don’t think God gave it to them. I don’t think George Washington was sitting around thinking who’s the most right-wing guy here I can help out.
Someone give the man a chalkboard. Watch below.
