Chris Matthews refers to Governor Rick Perry as "Bull Connor with a smile"
As history shows, Bull Connor was an unapologetic Democratic racist who lived during the Civil Rights era. Chris Matthews said on his show last week that Governor Rick Perry of Texas is "Bull Connor with a smile".
Only a kook or a person ignorant of history would even entertain what Chris Matthews said as being factual in his comparison between Governor Perry and Bull Connor. It's the over the top delusional sensationalism like what Matthews does on a daily basis is why many people see progressives as the kook fringe that they are. First it was Ed Schultz of MSNBC actually deceiving his own viewers just to try and brand Rick Perry as a racist. Now it's Chris Matthews ALSO OF MSNBC with with the laughable comparison between Rick Perry and Bull Conor. Chris has always been good at using the eye popping headline slogans like "Rick Perry is Bull Connor with a smile", however, Chris can never backs up his headlines with the body of facts! How is Governor Rick Perry similar to Bull Connor on the issue of race? If Chris Matthews was asked that simple question, he would do everything in his power to try and change the topic. When the facts are presented, there is clear "contrast"between Rick Perry and Bull Conor not any "similarities".

Once again Mr Tingles is playing fast and fancy free with the truth. What else is to be expected from Chris Matthews and MSNBC, the truth?
