MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who was a pioneer in the field of cable news field by hosting “Hardball” for decades, has resigned from his post after a string of recent controversies.
“I’m retiring,” Matthews said. “This is the last ‘Hardball’ on MSNBC.”

He made the announcement on Monday’s episode of “Hardball,” and left his show immediately after his resignation. He was reportedly planning to retire at the end of the election cycle, but that was moved up considerably due to the fallout from the recent controversies.
“The younger generations out there are ready to take the reins,” he said.
Matthews initially came under fire after he compared the rise of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the Democrat presidential race to the rise of Nazi Germany.
“The general calls up Churchill and says, ‘It’s over,’” Mr. Matthews said during a broadcast of his show, as he tried to describe Democrats’ surprise at Sanders’ unexpected surge. “Churchill says: ‘How can it be? You got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”
From there, the controversy only worsened for the embattled journalist, after he mistakenly said that Jaime Harrison, a Democrat running for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina, was Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC). He told this to Harrison while he was appearing on his show.
“Jaime, I see you standing next to the guy you’re going to beat right there, maybe, maybe, Lindsey Graham,” Matthews said.
“That’s Tim Scott,” Harrison said.
“Jaime?” Matthews said.
“Tim Scott,” another guest said.
“Who’s that?” a confused Matthews said.
“That’s Tim Scott,” another guest said causing Harrison to laugh.
“I’m sorry?” an increasingly confused Matthews said.
“Oh, the other Senator, Tim Scott. What am I saying?” a now lucid Matthews said.
“Big mistake. Mistaken identity, sir. I’m sorry,” he continued.
After they smelled blood in the water, that’s when Matthews was hit with the inevitable #MeToo accusations by embittered female reporters.
Journalist Laura Bassett claimed that “has a pattern of making comments about women’s appearances in demeaning ways” because he asked “Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?” to a female guest. He admitted fault while groveling on his final show.
“For making such comments in the past, I’m sorry,” Matthews said during tonight’s broadcast.
Leftists are currently pissing on Matthews’ grave in social media posts.
Cannot overstate how much better off we are without Chris Matthews — a relic of amoral, politics-as-sports journalism who cared more about access to party elites than to advocating for the public he was supposed to serve.

Chris Matthews recently compared Bernie Sanders winning primaries to Nazis invading France. Bernie’s father’s side all died in the Holocaust.
Today Chris Matthews was fired by msnbc. Excuse me, he ‘retired.’
You truly love to see it.

Thank you Bernie, for finally causing Chris Matthews to show his ass for real and now we shall be free of him! You're already making America better. #BernieSanders

I would tell Chris Matthews that I hope the door doesn’t hit him on his way out but I really hope it does and I’m not a liar.

As they radicalize further, the Left will continue to eat their own as the jackals demand the blood of all those who are not sufficiently pure.
CANCELLED: Conservative Gatekeeper Caleb Hull Has Racial Slur Laden Tweets Exposed After Joining Leftist Witch Hunts Against ‘America First’ Movement
Some poetic justice for Mr. Hull.
Faux-conservative gatekeeper Caleb Hull, who has attacked many prominent ‘America First’ voices for not being sufficiently politically correct, is now under attack from the same leftists who he has cheered on in the past.
Jared Holt of Right Wing Watch exposed Hull’s history of making offensive comments on social media. Hull worked for Turning Point USA before becoming a digital communications strategist and marketing his services to pro-Trump Republicans.
“In 2014, Hull made anti-Black, anti-Muslim, and anti-LGBTQ remarks on a Twitter account that RWW determined belonged to Hull by reviewing archives from the account and comparing them to still-active posts on accounts where Hull uses his real name. The account, with the handle @FlwTV, was deleted from Twitter shortly after RWW started reaching out to Hull’s industry colleagues,” Holt wrote.
“Hull casually deployed the n-word on his @FlwTV Twitter account on several occasions and shared jokes in which the slur was the punchline. In one instance, he remarked that he was banned from a streamer’s chat room after he “spammed” the n-word “17 times.” Hull promoted racist tropes about Black people, specifically those involving watermelon and fried chicken, Black children without fathers, and slaves picking cotton,” he added.
While Holt’s hit pieces are meant to enforce cancel culture on the Right and typically abhorrent, Hull’s history of joining leftist witch hunts against conservative voices guilty of mob-imposed wrongthink has made these circumstances particularly ironic.
Hull once went after Kaitlin Bennett of Liberty Hangout after she was attacked by a mob of campus leftists, inferring that Bennett was asking for it due to her history of confrontational political activism.
“When you knowingly enter an area with hundreds of people who you know hate your guts that will confront you, going in without alerting police or having protection isn’t just “exercising your right to free speech.” It’s just plain old stupid and a call for attention,” Hull wrote in his tweet blaming the victim.
“Nothing unites America quite like hating Kaitlin Bennett,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
When @KaitMarieox was assaulted and rioted against by hundreds of students, @calebjhull blamed her for it and said she should expect violence. Today he's crying about how he's being canceled. Sorry but you shouldn't have joined Antifa if you didn't want to play by their rules! pic.twitter.com/sBsoNxV1uM

Hull also attacked right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin, calling her an anti-Semite for refusing to disavow paleoconservative video blogger Nick Fuentes.
Time and time again, mainstream conservatives think the cancel culture mob they feed will never eat them too. They think they can fend it off with condemnations of those farther right. But one day, it'll come for them too. Welcome to the club, Caleb Hull! pic.twitter.com/VFJPSiRW1A

The cancelling of Hull by the social justice mob should teach a lesson to every conservative who believes they are untouchable because they serve Conservative Inc. and try to police their speech to appease the Left. Sooner or later, the mob will come for your scalp as well.
