Following the Democrat debate on Friday, February 7, 2020, Chris Matthews shocked the guest panel on MSNBC by voicing his opposition to socialism.
He even told them that it doesn’t work.
“The issue of this campaign, it is that word socialism,” Matthews declared.
“Some people like it. Younger people like it. Those of us like me, who grew up in the Cold War and saw some aspects of it if you’re visiting places like Vietnam like I have, and seen countries like Cuba, being there,” he continued.
“I’ve seen what socialism’s like, and I don’t like it. OK? It’s not only not free, it doesn’t frickin’ work.”
Matthews differentiated between Democrats, who he believes are to the left of Republicans and favored more social programs, to socialists who he lumped with communists and other revolutionaries.
Matthews noted that if communists had taken over, he would have been one of the people rounded up and executed. He also hinted that people like Sanders and his acolytes would be cheering on the execution.
“I have my own views of the word socialist and I’ll be glad to share them with [the Democratic party] in private, and they go back to the early nineteen fifties. I have an attitude about them. I remember the Cold War,” Matthews declared.
“I have an attitude towards [communist Cuban dictator Castro], I believe that if Castro and the reds had won the Cold War, there would have been executions in Central Park, and I might have been one of the ones being executed!” he added.
“And certain other people would have been there, cheering, OK?” Matthews finished. “So I have a problem with people taking the other side.”
Indeed, there are schisms among Democrat Party operatives and their surrogates regarding Sander.
His former Marxist escapades do raise questions of whether he will expropriate private property the way Communist governments have traditionally done in the past.
However, Sanders does have overlap on many of the multiculturalist Left’s favorite issues.
On top of that, he has echoed the political establishment on waging war against so-called “white nationalism”.
All in all, Sanders fits in with most of the modern-day Democrat Party and many skeptics on the Left will eventually fall in line should he win the nomination.
Marco Rubio Believes “Boogaloo” Groups are Responsible for Leftist Mayhem Sweeping Across the Country
Like clockwork, Florida Senator Marco Rubio is advancing mainstream media narratives during the current wave of rioting taking place across the nation.
On May 30, 2020, Rubio tweeted “News networks missing a big story In city after city we have a rogues gallery of terrorists from Antifa to “Boogaloo” groups encouraging & committing violence They may not be ideologically compatible but share a hatred of govt & police & are taking advantage of the protests.”

Indeed, Antifa and leftist groups adjacent to their cause have exploited protests to engage in flagrantly criminal acts such as looting and rioting.
However, the mentioning of “Boogaloo” groups is laughable.
First off, talk of “Boogalo” is done in jest and only confined to the Internet.
It has not manifested itself in a coherent form as far as physical politics is concerned.
Secondly, right wing protesters have behaved themselves peacefully in the last few months.
The same cannot be said about Antifa and its leftist cohorts.
It would behoove Rubio to get the facts straight and take the Left exclusively to task for this mayhem.
The media is already trying to change the narrative by blaming the riots on “white supremacists” and far right groups.
It makes sense for elected officials on the Right to get the facts straight and not fall for media disinformation.
For establishment figures like Rubio, this may be too much to ask for.
