Poor old male (well he is 74) Chris Matthews last night was ‘upped and offed’ from his Hardball antics quicker than you could say ‘hello-goodbye’ in the same breath. Yup, it was that quick. Following his apologetic opener, the show went to commercial, Matthews walked off the set, and left behind a shaken Steve Kornacki.
To cut to the chase, Matthews was fired for inappropriate male flirting. Or something.
Inappropriate flirting? Well, I suppose We the People need to understand that to some people ‘flirting’ is actually bright line harassment and quite objectionable. But for yours truly it appears to be that there are now just too many gray areas between and beyond the sexes. And even those gray areas keep moving!
The phrase for the elderly male Matthews to be up and dumped was a sad-sack “Why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?” This is the objectionable quote? Well yes, I can imagine circumstances where such a question might be alarming and upsetting. But I can also imagine circumstances where it might be harmless and lighthearted. Have we all gone nuts?
Mathews (a male by the way) was in on many of these ‘trial my media’ inquisitions and it’s ironic that he was taken down by the same device i.e. the dreaded fem fascist accusation. Pretty thin – ‘inappropriate flirting’ – but it hardly matters anymore. Notice how the ones taken down are always white men – misandry – and women take their spots. Would anyone dispute the likelihood that his downfall was all organized in advance on social media?
We can joke about his resignation, but the power of the Politically Correct storm troopers is terrifying. No accusation is too vague or too ancient to be considered damning to the accused male. Instead of Soviet show trials, we have mass media blitzkriegs to humiliate and destroy the offender.
“I’m glad I’m not a male (says #seewithyourowneyes on the thread) – having to figure out today’s vague and fluctuating rules of flirtation … Meanwhile, we are importing some of the most explicit and degrading forms of misogyny imaginable from the Third World. And we are not even allowed to talk about it. All our words are devoted to parsing questionable Western micro-aggressions. None to condemning actual rape cultures.”
‘Rape Cultures’, as a matter of fact, that were we to attempt to reveal them here, would have us all sent to the sin-bin.

“I’m retiring,” said Chris Matthews at the top of his show on Monday night. “This will be my last ‘Hardball.’” A younger generation was “ready to take the reins,” Matthews said, but it turned out there was more to it. The longtime MSNBC host, 74, had made some inappropriate comments on a woman’s appearance, and had come to realize that such things are “never okay.” That settled an issue that had been brewing for several days.
Last Saturday, MSNBC stars Rachel Maddow, Brian Williams, and Nicolle Wallace assembled to cover the South Carolina Democrat primary. Viewers wondered why Chris Matthews was not among them.
The night before, the Washington Examiner explained, GQ columnist Laura Bassett accused Matthews of “inappropriately flirting” with her four years ago. In the makeup chair, Matthews reportedly asked Bassett “why haven’t I fallen in love with you yet?” And another time he made comments about her red dress.
Bassett was uncertain if any of it amounted to illegal sexual misconduct but Matthews’ tiff with Elizabeth Warren over Michael Bloomberg’s conduct prompted Bassett to speak out. MSNBC duly yanked Matthews, who had been in hot water before.
“A female staffer was paid severance by NBC after accusing Chris Matthews of sexual harassment,” Erin Nyren noted in Variety back in 2017. Matthews had reportedly “made inappropriate comments and jokes about her in front of other people.” The unnamed woman departed the show, reportedly with a payment of $40,000. According to the story Matthews received a “formal reprimand,” but remained on the show. One of his favorite guests was Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti.

Seems that the easiest way to get rid of a Dhimmicrat that is no longer toeing the line, other than Arkancide, is to just find a woman to come forward and say that he did, said, implied, or otherwise demonstrated, displayed, or exhibited something inappropriate. Regardless of time frame, such behavior may have occurred any time between birth and death, and must be accountable to the great politically correct god.
Maybe Quid Pro Quo Slow Joe will make Matthews his press secretary!
And on that note, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA! KAG!
