In 2013, Chris Matthews Said Hitler Never Used Chemical Weapons
April 13, 2017
Sean Spicer has spent the past two days apologizing for saying that Adolf Hitler didn’t use chemical weapons.
Unfortunately for MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, that led to people remembering he’d said said the exact same thing back in 2013.
In an August 27, 2013 appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Matthews seemed displeased with Obama’s “red-line” policy in Syria and offhandedly mentioned that Hitler “didn’t use chemical weapons.”
“We didn’t use [chemical weapons] in World War II, Hitler didn’t use them,” Matthews said at the time. “But we don’t use chemical weapons. That’s no deal.”
Matthews then pondered what could stop a country like Syria from using nuclear weapons if mutually assured destruction wasn’t enough of a deterrent.
“If that doesn’t work, what does work?” he questioned.
To Matthews’ credit, he defended Sean Spicer after his Tuesday gaffe, explaining that the White House press secretary clearly “was talking about” the fact that Hitler “didn’t resort to [chemical weapons] in the battlefield.”
Yesterday, on March 28, 2017, while speaking live on MSNBC, Evelyn Farkas, who had been Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense as part of President Obama’s administration, said that the Obama administration had spied on Donald Trump.
Here’s the video:
A quick online search shows that this has not so far been covered by the New York Times, the Washington Post, Associated Press, Reuters, or any other mainstream media source.
But the video is out there.
And even if YouTube takes it down, someone else will always be able to put it back up. If not on YouTube, then somewhere else instead.
This was live TV. Live TV sometimes has its “oops” moments, which, in today’s internet age, can never be totally covered up.

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry criticized the New York Times because it actually had the nerve to publish a photograph of a person that it wrote an article about.
Can you imagine such an atrocity? A newspaper actually published a photograph to accompany one of its articles!
Has the New York Times no shame?
Harris-Perry: By Showing Malik in Hijab, NYT Suggesting ‘This Is What Terrorism Looks Like’
December 5, 2015
They would have used a photo of her in an NRA cap, but none was available . . . Man, it’s getting hard to navigate the nuanced shoals of political correctness. Now, even the ineffably sensitive New York Times has run afoul of the rules, as propounded by Melissa Harris-Perry. On her MSNBC show today, Harris-Perry griped that the Gray Lady had run a photo of Islamic terrorist killer Tafsheen Malik wearing a hijab. As per H-P, the Times was sending a message that “this is what terrorism looks like.”
Damn those anti-Muslim bigots of the New York Times! But seriously, what was the poor paper supposed to do? Should the Times have photoshopped the hijab off Malik? Harris-Perry might have complained that the paper was suggesting there was something offensive about the garment. Sometimes you just can’t win with the PC crowd.
MSNBC just published this article titled “Obama keeps promise to young men of color.”
The article states:
President Obama is expected to launch his most focused efforts to address the dire prospects of young men of color this week, a demographic far too often swept into cycles of poverty and the school-to-prison pipeline.
Obama will unveil details of a new initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper” on Thursday, which will draw on partnerships with foundations and businesses to target young men of color across the country with a range of opportunities and strategies to help bolster their lives.
The article includes the following poll:
The poll asks the following question, and includes the following three options as an answer:
What are your expectations for Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative?
It will make a difference.
Its success will depend on young men’s initiative.
All of those options are either positive or neutral.
There is no option for people who think that Obama’s proposal won’t do any good, or who think that it will cause more harm than good.
