MSNBC’s Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz ‘a complete enemy of the state’ (Video)

2015-12-22-MSNBC-MatthewsOn Tuesday, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews illustrated why I call the cable outlet the “official network of insane liberal hate” when he referred to GOP presidential candidate and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz “a complete enemy of the state.”

One cannot help but wonder if Matthews actually wants someone to take a shot at Cruz — literally.

“Cruz is scarier than Trump and that will be a frightening prospect to realize….if we weren’t talking about Trump, we’d be talking about the horror of this country possibly being led by Cruz,” he told MSNBC Live fill-in host Ayman Mohyeldin.

As fill-in anchor Ayman Mohyeldin started to ask about Donald Trump’s “biggest rival” in the GOP race, Matthews interrupted: “Do you know him? Have you ever met Cruz?” Mohyeldin replied: “I have not. I don’t know him.” Matthews sneered: “Well, when you do, you’ll know what I’m talking about….nobody likes him. No one who knows him likes him.”

Mohyeldin then asked how Cruz is doing so well in the polls.  That’s when Matthews let loose.

“Because I think the anger that we see driving Trump, the anger on the right, white people, if you will, working white people, whatever that category gets defined as, are so angry, especially the very religious people, that they’re willing to put somebody in there who’s a complete enemy of the state. They’re willing to go all the way to the hardest far right rail. You can’t be too hard right,” he said.

An enemy of the state? Really?  Apparently, in the twisted bizarro-word occupied by leftists, anyone who supports the Constitution is an enemy of the state.  Naturally, they would argue, enemies of the state need to be eliminated.

So, does Chris Matthews want Ted Cruz killed?  It’s a fair question…
