Chris Matthews Calls Third Party Voters “Idiots”

Chris Matthews just had another one of his famous on air breakdowns.  As you will see in the clip below he stated:

“If you don’t vote, I don’t want to talk to you. And if you vote for one of these numbskull third or fourth party candidates like Gary Johnson or Jill Stein and say, ‘Oh, I was so surprised at what happened…’ No! You shouldn’t be! Because idiots like you voted for third and fourth party candidates, and they don’t know how this system works. You have two choices.”

Excuse me Mr. Matthews, but I’m pretty sure everyone that is voting third party knows EXACTLY how the system works, which is precisely why they are voting third party.  I guess no one told Chris about the tingle I got down my leg and I pulled the lever for Gary Johnson.

Watch Chris Matthews lose it on live television here.

  1. i agree with you of course, Mike, but …. that was not ‘losing it’ or anything even close to a ‘breakdown’ , sorry …. a little too sensationalistic , Mike. But keep up the great work !

  2. The ‘mainstream’ argument is ALWAYS to bully and bluster as they can’t win on the facts… and won’t even discuss them.

  3. Do you get that tingle often when you pull a guy’s lever?

  4. Chris Matthews forgets that Bill Clinton owes his entire political career to “idiot” third party voters who cost George H.W. Bush a second term. If not for Ross Perot and all his “idiot” supporters, Bill and Hillary would be chasing ambulances in Little Rock and Chris Matthews would be reporting weekend weather for News 55.

  5. Well, Chris “the real idiot” Matthews, for awhile today, Gary Johnson was a top trend search today. Obviously, more people are getting your one party system than you think.

    Of course, Katie Holmes has been on the top ten trend searches all day. Sigh. : – (

    On to hyperinflation.

    Ad Hominem: “Because idiots like you ….”

    False Dilemma: “You have two choices.”

    It is pretty amazing that someone as mainstream as Matthews would even mention Gary Johnson or Jill Stein, albeit in a derogatory fashion.

    Like you Mike, I also voted for Gary Johnson since Ron Paul was not on the ballot. And like Chris Matthews, a number of my friends and family told me I was throwing my vote away. At which point I tried to explain that the meme of there being only two candidates keeps us locked in the current system of voting for the lesser of two evils.

    Looking forward, I think if a third party candidate is going to have a chance for the 2016 election, they need to start educating people now that the system can change. But these candidates are going to need to address the “there are only two choices” issue head on.

  8. felt the same tingle Mike.
