Whenever Democrats can’t win on something, they make it about race. Watch the convoluted path Democrats (think KKK creators, party of the poll tax, party of abortion, party that didn’t want blacks to ever own guns) will take next to vilify gun owners.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: I’m trying to figure out why this country isn’t getting reflected on Congress — in the Congress. It’s a bother. In a democracy you’d like to think that what you really deep down feel — now the only way to explain it is problems with the polling which you can always talk about. And it’s this visceral thing. It’s the guy, mostly the guy, the white guy, mostly, who is gun absorbed. Let’s be honest about it. Absorbed without putting a negative on it. Just really believes in the Second Amendment; cares deeply about it and is going to remember every one of these voting opportunities. He’s going to take that position.
On immigration, are people just ethnically conservative? They want things the way they were, they don’t want any big immigration in their neighborhoods. It’s not that they’re racist or anything. They want the things the way they were and they want things that way. Are those people less likely to give up a fight? Are they just more emotionally involved? Anyway, we got to go. This fight is going to go on. Thank you, gentlemen. (Hardball, May 2, 2013)
Don’t even get me started on pseudo Republican Michael Steele just sitting there nodding like a bobble head!
