The liberal Chris Matthews on Monday night mocked Ben Carson for comparing the progressive movement to Nazis. However, Matthews isn’t in a position to judge. He has repeatedly connected conservatives to Nazis. The cable host played a clip of the Fox News commentator at a fund-raising event for senatorial candidate Monica Wehby.
While talking about the progressive movement, Carson insisted, “There comes a time when people with values simply have to stand up. Think about Nazi Germany.” Matthews sneered, “Haven’t we all learned by now not to go there? No Nazi references.” [See video below. MP3 audio here.] On November 26, 2012, guest Howard Fineman insisted that conservatives view African Americans and Hispanics as “extraterrestrial.” Matthews derided, “The last guy to refer to the black auxiliary was Hitler.”
On October 22, 2012, the anchor trashed conservatives, hissing, “Is it in society’s interests for [a young woman’s] boss to be able to be the birth control Nazi to decide who gets it and who doesn’t?”
On November 7, 2012, Matthews chuckled as liberal comic Bill Maher compared Karl Rove to Adolf Hitler.
