(Tea Party PAC) – MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews brutalized socialist Bernie Sanders and his fellow far-left Democrats in the wake of Friday’s 2020 primary debate.
Matthews took aim at socialism in general, pointing quite sensibly to his own experience of watching the damage communist governments inflicted during the Cold War.
“The issue of this campaign is that word socialism. Some people like it. Younger people like it,” Matthews said during coverage following up the debate.
“Those of us like me, who grew up in a cold war and saw some aspects of it while visiting places like Vietnam, like I have, and seeing countries like Cuba, being there. I’m seeing what socialism’s like. I don’t like it. OK? It’s not only not free. It doesn’t freakin’ work!”
Chris Matthews: Socialism “doesn’t frickin work.”

Matthews went on to point out that communist governments commonly rounded-up and executed their political opponents, implying that Sanders could do just that were he elected President.

“I remember the Cold War…I think 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 getting executed,” Matthews said.
“And certainly other people would be there cheering, OK?…I don’t know what he means by Socialism. I wonder if he means Denmark. We want to be like Denmark. OK, that’s harmless. It’s basically a capitalist country with good social welfare…”
Co-anchor Chris Hayes jumped in to defend Sanders.
“Well clearly he means Denmark,” he said matter-of-factly.
Matthews called him out:
“How do you know? Did he say that? Is he? How do you know? Did he tell you that?” he asked.
Matthews naturally ruffled quite a few feathers on the left for this brutal honesty, but he is right over the target.
As Infowars notes:
Over the last few weeks, Project Veritas has released several undercover videos showing numerous Sanders field organizers in multiple states express their desire to round up conservatives and put them in Soviet-style re-education gulags, and even waging mass violence across the country should Trump win a second term.
