Chris Matthews: I Agree Wholeheartedly With Everything Newt Gingrich Just Said (But It's Totally Racist)

No, really. Matthews agrees completely with Gingrich on three key points:

1. Kids can and should work at school; it's how they do it at Catholic school, and it instills values.

2. Work is valuable no matter what it is. He quotes the Latin, Laborare est orare, which translates to "To work is to pray."

3. Hoo-boy, does he agree that "Only the elites despise the idea of making money."

And yet, having agreed with Newt on every single point, he pronounces Gingrich "racist" and employing "racial codes" because he pronounced Juan William's first name as "Juan."

You might say, How else would you pronounce it? I don't know. Apparently Chris hears more of a "Wan" in the "Juan" (my God, this angels-on-the-head-of-a-pin stuff) and he knows that's racist.

And a gallon of irony spills but not a drop splashes on him: He declares that this campaign is going to be all about race and all about "coaxing" people to vote with their tribes, and that's bad.

After he just... essentially made the case that even though Gingrich was right, you must vote against him (or, rather, for Obama), because of... race.

Breathtaking. Video below, plus some extra.

James Taranto calls out the left for its deranged theory of racial supremacy.

Siegel isn't the first to define the "opportunity society" as being for whites only. Last June, as we noted, MSNBC's Chris Matthews accused Romney of having employed a "slur" for observing of Obama that in his approach to economic policy, "he's awfully European." Matthews apparently is unaware that Europe's biggest export to America has been white people.

Romney and his fellow Republicans are making a case (at least relative to President Obama) for economic freedom and against the expansion of government. To be sure, one may prefer Obama's policies on reasoned grounds that have nothing to do with race. It is also true that for most of America's history, and as recently as the 1960s, blacks were denied the freedoms, economic and otherwise, that whites took for granted.

But no Republican running for president is proposing a return to Jim Crow or a repeal of civil rights laws. Siegel's implicit notion that only whites are capable of benefiting from economic freedom under a regime of legal equality amounts to an insidious theory of racial supremacy.

Thanks to BenK.
