MSNBC’s Chris Matthews makes on-air apology to Sanders for linking Nevada victory to Nazi rise: ‚I was wrong‘

MSNBC host Chris Matthews offered a rare on-air apology to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., after his remarks invoking the rise of Nazi Germany following the 2020 front-runner’s victory in Nevada sparked major backlash.

Why MSNBC Is Freaking Out Over Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders’s overwhelming victory in the Nevada caucus is sending shock waves through the American political system, perhaps nowhere more than on MSNBC. The hosts and guests of the cable news network made no effort to hide their dismay at Sanders’s victory. Even Brian Fallon, national press secretary for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and not someone very favorably inclined to Sanders, was taken aback. “MSNBC sure has a lot of commentators who hate Sanders,” he tweeted.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Compared Bernie Sanders‘ Nevada Performance To The Nazi Invasion Of France

„I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940,“ said Matthews, „And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, ‚It’s over.‘ And Churchill says, ‚How can that be? You’ve got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?‘ He said, ‚It’s over.'“

Matthews added, „So I had that suppressed feeling.“

The comment prompted outcry not just from Sanders‘ supporters; many people on Twitter described the reference to a Nazi invasion to discuss a prominent Jewish candidate as distasteful.

Wie die Interpretation des Grundgesetzes zwecks Militäreinsatz im Innern zustande kam

(24. Juli 2016)

Am 17. August 2012 schließlich veröffentlichte das Bundesverfassungsgerichts Beschluss 2 PBvU 1/11.

Wohl gemerkt: einen Beschluss. Nicht etwa ein Urteil.

Durch diesen Beschluss interpretierte das Bundesverfassungsgericht im Jahre 2012 das dreiundsechzig Jahre zuvor in Kraft getretene Grundgesetz einfach um, interpretierte Attentate als „Naturkatastrophe oder..Unglücksfall“ (Wortlaut Grundgesetz Artikel 35!), interpretierte daraus den „Katastrophennotstand“ (von dem im Grundgesetz nie die Rede war und ist) und interpretierte den bestehenden Artikel 35 Grundgesetz dahingehend um, dieser gebe der Regierung das Recht eigenmächtig und ohne Parlamentsbeschluss der Bundeswehr und ihren Soldaten einen bewaffneten Einsatz im Inland zu befehlen, unter Umgehung selbst der „Notstandsgesetze“ und Artikel 87a.

Gespräch über Flüchtlinge: Türkei kann auf mehr EU-Gelder hoffen

Innenminister Seehofer lehnt einen türkischen Einmarsch in Syrien ab. Was mehr Geld für Flüchtlinge angeht, zeigte er sich in Ankara aber offen. Von einem dritten EU-Pakt ist die Rede.

EU wegen Flüchtlingspakt besorgt – Seehofer lobt Ankara und verspricht mehr Hilfe

Im offensichtlichen Bemühen, die jüngsten Spannungen zu glätten, dankte er der türkischen Regierung ausdrücklich für ihre Rolle bei der Bewältigung der Flüchtlingskrise. „Ohne Eure Solidarität wäre das Migrationsproblem in unserer Region so nicht bewältigt worden“, sagte er an den Gastgeber, seinen türkischen Kollegen Süleyman Soylu, gewandt. „Ein ganz herzliches Dankeschön. Das ist eine Leistung, die auch in die Welthistorie eingehen wird.“

Netanyahu Ratchets Up Attack on Production Company, Journalist Reporting His Corruption Probes

PM claims Keshet Media Group, which produced the HBO series ‚Our Boys‘ that he blasted as anti-Semitic, is ‚committing a terror attack against democracy‘

It’s Now Clear: Netanyahu Won’t Rest Until a Journalist’s Blood Is Spilled

We know what should be the fate of perpetrators. The man who more than two decades ago marched in front of a coffin (which he didn’t see, of course, a meter behind him) in a protest against Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and who incited from a balcony in Zion Square, with posters of Rabin in SS uniform below him (which he didn’t see either), has gone back to his evil ways. Or, as the verse says in another context, as a dog returns to his vomit, so a fool repeats his folly. He seeks chaos, violence and loss of restraint that will allow him to show off his “leadership” and take control of what’s happening.

In Deal With Far-right Leader, Netanyahu Edges Closer to Reelection. Next Up: The Kahanists

Feiglin was a serious obstacle who was in Netanyahu’s way – and he was pushed out of the way. Next in line are the Kahanist members of the Otzma Yehudit party. Negotiating with them would be more complicated for Netanyahu, because even our prime minister, who has lost all his brakes and morals over the past few years, wouldn’t think of offering Itamar Ben-Gvir a ministerial post. Or would he?

Zehut bows out of elections after Netanyahu promises Feiglin a cabinet post

Netanyahu has been putting intense pressure on several small right-wing factions to drop out of the election in September so that their votes don’t get “wasted” if they fail to clear the 3.25-percent threshold for entering the Knesset. As with Zehut, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or his political representatives have also met over the past two weeks with candidates from the extremist Otzma Yehudit and Noam parties.

The move, which followed Yisrael Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman’s announced intention to ask Netanyahu’s party for an alternative candidate if the prime minister rejects a unity government with the opposition Kahol Lavan party, will also earn a secure spot in the Pathetic Moment Hall of Fame.

Gay conversion therapy works and I’ve given it, says Israeli education minister

Israel’s education minister has provoked a storm of anger by backing “gay conversion therapy”, a discredited technique that seeks to turn people heterosexual.

Rafi Peretz said it could work and that he had even performed it.

“I think that it is possible to convert [someone’s sexual orientation],” Mr Peretz said.

“I can tell you that I have deep familiarity on the issue of education, and I have also done this.”

My Family Perished in the Assimilation Shoah, According to Israel’s Education Minister

Why isn’t the army called in to protect America’s remaining Jews, who every day face the danger of assimilation and annihilation in this Shoah? For what purpose was the State of Israel and the Israel Defense Forces founded, if not to guarantee that not one more Jew will ever be lost in a Holocaust in the Diaspora? Why aren’t U.S. Jews being airlifted to Israel, or guided by Mossad agents in the Mexican desert?

Israeli minister says US Jews marrying non-Jews is “like a second Holocaust”


To label this comment “offensive” is a severe understatement. Fifty-eight percent of American Jews have non-Jewish spouses, per a 2013 Pew survey. Telling the majority of American Jews that they are perpetrating genocide on their own people is about as inflammatory as it gets.
