Chris Matthews Claimed Tazed Guy Was Proof of American Fascism, Blaming "Democracy At Gunpoint" On Bush, But Laughed As Bill Maher Ordered Security To Rough Up Truther Hecklers

Nuance. Sweet, creamery, savory nuance.

Chris Matthews: "You know when we walk into those, every night on television you watch pictures of American soldiers risking their lives to break into homes in Baghdad, at gunpoint, telling people to go along with the government that we've set up over there. Democracy at gunpoint. I wonder if it's filtered back here at home. I wonder if it's drift back home? The idea that democracy is something you do at gunpoint. ‘Either you behave and do it this way and show up by putting your fingers in the ink and doing it this way or you're an insurgent, therefore, we can round you up and if you resist we can kill you.' That notion it's a bit fascist and it's certainly a fascistic notion of democracy we're forcing, forcing on people over there. They didn't invited us into Iraq and I wonder now whether we are picking up some of the bad habits of the war front?"

Now contrast his caterwauling over the lost "right" to be disruptive with his laughing over Maher's forcible ejection of hecklers, linked below.

I guess dissent is the highest form of patriotism, except when it cuts into Chris Matthews' book-plugging tv time.

Thanks to pablo honey.
