No tingle: Chris Matthews Likens Bernie’s Strong Nevada Showing to France Falling to Nazi Germany in WWII

From Yahoo: Cable news personalities had a lot to say about Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (D-VT) early lead in the Nevada caucuses Saturday, with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews likening it to the shock of France falling to Germany during WWII.

“It looks like Bernie Sanders is hard to beat… I think it’s a little late to stop him, and that’s the problem,” Matthews said during a panel segment. “It’s pretty much over unless that changes.”

He then dropped the eyebrow-raising WWII reference, seemingly as a way to describe how Sanders has—in his view—clinched the Democratic nomination.

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

Other pundits also marveled at Sanders’ lead, with CNN’s Van Jones claiming the jaws of the Democratic “establishment” were “hanging off their faces.”

“Nobody thought six months ago thought we would be sitting here with Bernie Sanders on his way to the nomination. He’s on his way to the nomination,” he said. “Something could happen to stop him. Somebody may have some marbles to throw at the stairs or banana peel, they better find it. Because this guy is off and running.”

Jones commented on the impressive Latino turnout for the Vermont senator, claiming that he was “running as if he’s a Latino candidate now.”

He also pointed to younger voters who caucused for Sanders, claiming their support has been a “youthquake.”

“You got a new generation stepping up. They’re not scared of any of these ideas and they’re tired of hearing Republicans calling everything we say socialist. They ruined the word socialist,” he said.

Another MSNBC personality, Joy Reid, attributed Sanders’ lead to the “sheer unadulterated rage” of young voters who she said were motivated to “throw the tables over” to vote for Sanders.

They’re turning the tables over and they don’t care what the potential result is. They’re the hungriest,” she said. “No one is as hungry, angry, enraged and determined as Sanders voters. Democrats need to sober up and figure out what the hell they are going to do about that.

I guess “the Russians Are Coming” didn’t work with Bernies’ “youthquake”. The Russians? They’re, like, socialists too so they’re cool. And his youthful supporters aren’t afraid of these (socialist) ideas. Of course not, they are too stupid. Sanders is doing schtick, he got into leftist politics back in the day to meet women which was a problem for him. Everybody was left back then but most of us grew out of it. The Rabid Reds in VT who voted him in complain that he’s not far left enough. He’d rather work with businesses than do socialism. So just a typical… Read more »

Most of the sheeple in this country just vote the way the talking heads on Tee-Vee tell them to. They haven’t had an original thought in years and they don’t care. They’re too busy living there lives.

Tingles is flipping out about the Bernie movement – There will be executions in Central Park! Actually he’s probably right about that if we take the Bros at their word. But he was just fine with socialism during his tingly Hussein period

Why are the Demonrat Party elites and their complicit media in a panic about Bernie Sanders? He’s simply saying out loud the socialism that they all espouse.

Because none dare call it socialism. Except Bernie who was elected as a socialist. He had nothing else, only free stuff for everybody forever. So they don’t think he can beat Trump. And the goal of socialism is communism but even Bernie won’t go there. AOC did though and he was reportedly furious. I guess recruiting people for The Revolution and issuing AK-47’s is a little too obvious

Because the Dems don’t want to TELL people they’re socialists; that’s why! To anyone with a brain and paying attention, it’s obvious that the Dems have been socialists for a long time. However, their traditional constituencies didn’t see that. Working class whites, many Catholics, union guys, et al, thought that the Dems were for the “little guy”.

Why do you think Nancy Pelosi despises AOC and her Squad mates? It’s not because there’s any difference between them; both want to make the US socialist. AOC’s big sin is being too OPEN AND HONEST about this…

If this were after Super Tuesday, that would be one thing. This early on, you can’t say stuff like that; you can’t say who’s going to win at this point. If Bernie runs away with Super Tuesday, then that would be different…

I’m still trying to come to closure with the idea that any sane person would vote for Sanders, and yet apparently, he’s set to win the nomination. Thank God he likely won’t be healthy enough to run after 4 more years of Trump and then 8 with Pence at the helm. Because by then, the Millennial & GenZ crowds will be in full swing and ready, able and willing to elect him… unless like every generation before them, they grow in maturity/reality by then.

Maybe AOC will have been deported by then. Ilhan too. May they never run.
