Flashback: In 2010, Under Obama, It Was Anti-American to Even Refer to an Administration You Don't Like as a "Regime"
— Open Blogger

"Unacceptable," fulminated Christ Matthews, denouncing Rush Limbaugh as a "walrus" for saying that "never has the press been more supportive of a regime."

This is what the liberal media deemed "unacceptable," "loony-tune," "John Birch Society" and "Father Coughlin" style talk, and angrily denounced those traitors so treasonously impugning La Precious.

And now? The media itself routinely calls the current democratically elected president a "traitor."

Also note: In this clip, Chris Matthews and Chuck Todd note that it is Barack Obama who has broken tradition by referring to his critics by name, and they're... okay with that. Kind of psyched about it.

Flash forward to today, when Trump referring to critics by name (or simply by network) is considered an Authoritarian Assault on Cherished Privileges of the Press.

CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: OK, let's go to the politics pure and simple here, Chuck. Here's the president -- I want you to respond to this. Here he is with Harry Smith this morning on CBS "Morning News" going over his enemies list, basically. I've never seen a president -- well, not since Nixon fought with Dan Rather have we really seen kind of rivalry where the president cites by names his critics. And they are his critics, in all fairness. Let's listen.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HARRY SMITH, CBS NEWS: Are you aware of the level of enmity that crosses the airwaves and that people have made part of their daily conversation about you?

OBAMA: Well, I mean, I think that when you listen to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck...

SMITH: It's beyond that.

OBAMA: ... it's pretty apparent, and it's troublesome.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Criticism is "troublesome," per the former president. Media criticism is "troublesome."

MATTHEWS: Well, we've got the response to that. Here's -- here's -- you know, this guy is no frail flower, if you will. He doesn't hide. Here`s what Rush Limbaugh said to "The D.C. Examiner" today. Quote, "Never in my life have I seen a regime like this, governing against the will of the people purposely -- purposely. I have never seen the media so supportive of a regime amassing so much power, and I`ve never known so many people who literally fear for the future."

This is to me -- I`ll just give you a little editorial (INAUDIBLE) I've never seen language like this in the American press, referring to an elected representative government, elected in a totally fair, democratic, American election -- we will have another one in November, we'll have another one for president in a couple years -- fair, free, and wonderful democracy we have in this country.

And this guy, this walrus underwater, makes fun of this administration, calling it a "regime." We know that word, "regime." It was used by recent presidents (INAUDIBLE) by George Bush, "regime change." You go to war with regimes. Regimes are tyrannies. They're juntas. They're military coups. The use of the word "regime" in American political parlance is unacceptable, and someone should tell the walrus to stop using it.

Your thoughts, Chuck.

The press routinely intimates that Trump is a tyrant and is running a junta today. And yet in 2010, it was a sacrilege to even use a word that maybe suggests that.

CHUCK TODD: Well, I'll say this. You know, which has come first, though, in this?

MATTHEWS: "Regime."

TODD: Are we seeing more of this out there, or does more -- do the -- or does this get more attention? I mean, if you go back in history, whether it was FDR, whether it was Kennedy, whether it was Reagan, you know, there's been plenty of this, you know, overhyped attacks either from the left or the right...

MATTHEWS: I never heard the word "regime"...

TODD: ... in going after a president...

MATTHEWS: ... before, have you?

TODD: No, the point is, it's out there. It just didn't get the attention. And the question is, does this stuff just have more of a platform than it ever has before? But I want to get to another point on this, Chris...

MATTHEWS: You mean the John Birch Society now has a voice of radio, is what you're saying. I mean, we`re now hearing...

TODD: That's the point...

MATTHEWS: ... the kind of language...

(CROSSTALK)

MATTHEWS: ... used to hear when those right-wingers would call Eisenhower a communist and his brother a communist, the Johns Hopkins -- all of a sudden...

TODD: Or FDR.

MATTHEWS: ... that kind of loony-toon talk...

TODD: Or Father Coughlin.

MATTHEWS: ... has found its way onto the airwaves -- Father Coughlin.

(CROSSTALK)

TODD: ... beyond AM radio anymore, Chris.

MATTHEWS: I don't even think Joe McCarthy ever called this government a "regime."

TODD: But let me get to this other point about the president, which is -- I thought you pointed out something very interesting at the beginning, how he calls out his media enemies, essentially, like Nixon.

MATTHEWS: Yes.

TODD: Unlike a lot of presidents, this president brings this issue with the media up constantly, to the point of where, you know, on one hand, you could look at it and said, Jeez, he's being a little thin-skinned. On the other hand, he's clearly trying to send a message of his frustration, I think, with the way that the collective media -- and when he`s talking there, he's not just talking about journalists...

Per Chuck Todd, it's okay for Obama to call out his enemies list in the press by name because he's "frustrated" and "trying to send a message."

What message? When Trump calls out his enemies by name, it's claimed he's trying to "silence" them through "fear." Is that the message La Precious was trying to send in 2010? If not, what?


MATTHEWS: Yes.

TODD: ... he's talking about opinion media -- that the entire noise that he sees here in Washington -- and so you wonder how much of it -- you know, is he bringing more attention to it than it deserves, as well?

Chuck Todd's point in that babble is "What Obama did was okay because he wasn't calling out journalists, but "Opinion Media."

But the entire media is now opinion media, masquerading as neutral reporters.

So it should be likewise okay for Trump to call out the Opinion Media too, right?

22 What's even funnier is that I distinctly remember when Matthews started whining that it was racist when people started using the term "regime" when Obama was in office, some people started showing videos of Matthews during the Bush administration referring to his administration as the Bush regime.

And speech is incitement to violence if done by conservative pundits. Actual incitement to violence by Progs is fine, dontcha know.

33 I'm beginning to question the wisdom of even debunking and humiliating these irrelevant buffoons in the so-called "mainstream" media. If they didn't get hate-clicks and hate-viewers, they would fade away entirely. Their continued existence depends entirely on the energy of their enemies, like that alien on Star Trek that derives nutrition from hatred. I really feel that the "MSM' is now a pitiful puppet-show performing to an empty theater. It has no influence beyond being fodder for mockery. Stop the mockery, and it will collapse as an industry.

49 Journolist. If you are a reporter reporting facts why do you need to engage in a group chat to get everyone in the business involved in your story. Because you want to reflect the same -- narrative -- which would be your opinion of what the facts mean. If there was only one possible conclusion from those facts, consensus would be automatic. These people piss on your heads and tell America its raining and half the country believes it. Journolist is still running, just changed format.

57 Willowed: The intrepid newsman entered the office of the Special Counsel. The oak paneled room was redolent with the scent of power, which struck Tapper almost as much as the overwhelming sense of respect for the hero and patriot that stood before him. Tapper began: "I switched cars in the garage so no-one would tail me. I know it's illegal for you to leak anything to me. But, sometimes you have to break the law in order to save it." "I knew I could count on you, Jake," Mueller replied, "In a town full of Russian spies, it's invaluable to have an upright journalist of the highest moral rectitude. It goes against every fiber of my being to leak information, but it has to be done. We know for a fact that Trump is working for the Russians. Our suspicion is that Putin had a Slavotronic mind-control chip implanted in his skull during the Helsinki Summit. But thus far, we just haven't been able to find the hard evidence. We'll get it. I know we will. But we just need to buy some time. I'm afraid Trump will try to shut us down, and the deplorable public is growing weary. I've seen their lack of vision and will to succeed before, when I was a hero in Vietnam. Can you help?" Jake drew a sharp breath. "You truly are a hero, sir. And, I suppose I could. I'll pre-emptively attack any such move as unpatriotic, in light of the fact that you are a sterling patriot, standing up for justice, and the American way of life." Mueller sat and thought for a moment, his equine visage cragged with worry: "Attacking the opposition as unpatriotic may not go over well with the Conservative media. I wouldn't want to put any of your professional relationships at risk." Jake stifled a peal of laughter: "Don't worry Mr. Mueller... their wives are all ugly! Who else will they find to roger them roundly on a nightly basis?"

I think the descriptions "the Obama Gay Bar" or "the Obama Pride Parade" are much more appropriate. Posted by: Anonymous White Male at July 27, 2018 03:54 PM (9BLnV) Obongo was merely a figurehead. I think that's pretty clear. He was propelled upwards in the political system by others, who subsequently wrote out what he should say and put it on his teleprompter. Obongo himself is of no significance.

There are real world consequences to the deep state trying to charge foreign nationals for a broad definition of "meddling" in our elections since we do the same.

Of course if we had an actual Republican AG I'd like to see him begin charging central American nationals and their domestic allies for election meddling.

111 I think there's an easy answer why the media is so pissed off at Trump. He's showing how easy it is to get the economy roaring, as long as you put America first. The media do not put America first and Obama sure as hell didn't, either. Trump makes Chocolate Jesus look bad, even incompetent. That's one of his major sins. The other major sin was beating Skankles handily when they predicted otherwise. Trump made the media look incompetent with their predictions hence the personal animosity because with them, it is personal.

Posted by: RickZ at July 27, 2018 11:01 AM (8lsuS)

Why anyone ever let Barky get away with pretending that he had even an inkling of what America is about or what AMericans are is something I'll never understand. He hated AMerica and everything he knew about it - which was precious little and mostly incorrect, as is the story about all of Barky's "knowledge" - and people let him make stupid claims about us and our country without any real pushback. His bullshit about how much muzzies have contributed to America was one of the most ridiculous and contrived pieces of bullshit that has ever been heard on the public stage.

Friend in NC was feet away from a lightning strike day before yesterday, "saw" bright blue electric confetti and scorched the right side of his face when he came to. He sounded like something out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon for a few hours after that.

Obongo was merely a figurehead. I think that's pretty clear. He was propelled upwards in the political system by others, who subsequently wrote out what he should say and put it on his teleprompter. Obongo himself is of no significance.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara, now with an added spark of divinity at July 27, 2018 03:58 PM (8DwPe) I disagree. Barky did exactly what he wanted to and didn't let anyone or anything stop him. He was the one who was raised in a foreign land and had no AMerican sensibilities to speak of, which rendered him immune to many of the limits that Americans are unconsciously bound by, even if they wished not to be. Barky had no Americanism to constrain him. He was Indonesian at his core - third world, anti-American and bent on revenge against us for making his people (the third world) look like losers because we kept winning everything and they constantly lost everything. This is what got BarkyCare passed, even after it had died a sixth time and the most intransigent American lefties had given up on it. Barky had no compunctions about pushing the system to total ruin in order to keep his anti-American national socialized health insurance/care alive. It was his un-American nature that did this. He was no puppet. He was the animating character in his junta, bringing foreign sensibilities to the AMerican system in his attempt to take it over completely or destroy it in the process.

WTF? Does he suspect that the kids are not his? If so, why would he tell others about testing them? OTOH, why would he test them too if he thought they were his?

I wonder what we should do with it?" 23 and Me is the nucleic acid equivalent to Facebook. The difference - and this is genius - is that 23 and Me got the suckers to PAY them to take their data. And if you think the suckers clients are pissed NOW, wait until they find out that 23 and Me will be flogging off their data to health insurers. Assuming that they haven't done that yet.

265 And if you think the suckers clients are pissed NOW, wait until they find out that 23 and Me will be flogging off their data to health insurers. Assuming that they haven't done that yet. I think you just answered that question. Now how do the insurance companies "monetize" that information without targeting specific people? By hiding the process inside an algorithm. By creating a program based on a variety of factors such as location or familial grouping on the DNA sequence. Then you really CAN target specific people.

267 >>>But the entire media is now opinion media, masquerading as neutral reporters. More like Pravda media than opinion media. It used to be that even leftists could differ somewhat over this or that matter (can sexy women appear in video games?). That's opinion. Propaganda doesn't allow any differences.

269 More than anything, I think this is a product of narcissism. I've noticed the trend for years that the commentators, pundits and reporters believe themselves to be part of the story, and worse yet an integral part of the story. There is an old quote (I think from Teddy Roosevelt) about glory belonging not to the critic, but rather to the man in the arena. Increasingly it seems the media is uncomfortable with their role as critic. They want to imagine themselves as warriors in the arena except for this: they are unwilling to earn their way into that arena and they've certainly no desire to risk losing anything in that arena. Skip Bayless or Stephen A. Smith want to talk about basketball as if their thoughts are as important of the game. But here's the thing, they can't dunk a f*cking basketball, they are unathletic, and they are unwilling to put in the hours of practice to dribble, shoot, defend, etc, and when their nattering is disproven as just that, nattering, the sidle up to the mic for three more hours of nattering to defend their own idiocy. The same goes for our political "journalists". Look, if you think Trump's a bad dude, fine. But put aside your mic, get some signatures on a petition and beat the golden scalped muthaf*cka. But if you ain't willing to do that, sit down and shut up, because nobody really cares nor is it of any importance what Chris Matthews or Anderson Cooper thinks. It really doesn't. Your just sh*t talking jackasses in the peanut gallery.

271 About 23 and Me. When they first started airing commercials for their DNA testing I thought about it... but the wife pointed out in the fine print of the commercial that it was run by CMS (The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services), so yes indeed, the government would have access to your DNA. I can't find visual evidence of that anymore, but I do remember seeing it on the commercials last year.

Turns out was a massive cover to retrieve a Soviet Sub. That was actually a good use of tax dollars, but the point remains that you can't accept face value purpose for any government agency --particularly given trends of the past 8-10 years, and presently. So yeah I can easily imagine how the government would love to get its hands on your DNA for many purposes, and how I wouldn't be too keen on just giving it to them.

279 Wait a minute... wasn't the Left going on and on from 2003-2008 about "regime change in America" as a 'cute' response to President Bush's regime change in Iraq? These despicable a-holes in the media (and really anyone on the Left and in the Democrat party) have no shame. They will, without fail, flip 180 on anything and everything solely based on the political party in power. Remember from 2003-2008 how it was patriotic to criticize the government? Remember Hillary's screeching: "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, "We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration!" April 28, 2003 at the annual Democratic Party Jefferson-Jackson-Bailey Day fund raising dinner in Connecticut. Yet, that lasted until January 2009, when Americans lost their right to debate and disagree with the Obama Administration, as anything critical was considered 'racist'.
