Chris Matthews compares Michael Moore to Osama Bin Laden!
DEMAND AN APOLOGY!,
on Hardball, Chris Matthews just blurted out that Bin Laden sounds like Michael Moore. Simple: Matthews should apologize. On the air. This has NOTHING to do with Michael Moore and everything to do with how far media figures can go slandering the left. And last I checked, Michael Moore didn’t massacre thousands of innocent Americans.
And Crooks & Liars has the video.
Don’t let Matthews get away with this! Are Democrats just fair game for ANY KIND of nasty attack and smear???
Update – Joining us in our call for an apology, driven by the blogs:
“You’d think the only focus tonight would be on destroying Osama Bin Laden, not comparing him to an American who opposes the war whether you like him or not. You want a real debate that America needs? Here goes: If the administration had done the job right in Tora Bora we might not be having discussions on Hardball about a new Bin Laden tape. How dare Scott McClellan tell America that this Administration puts terrorists out of business when had they put Osama Bin Laden out of business in Afghanistan when our troops wanted to, we wouldn’t have to hear this barbarian’s voice on tape. That’s what we should be talking about in America.” — John Kerry
Digby’s on this story as well, with a list of phone numbers to call, and a list of other bloggers.
Update – A MyDD commenter caught CNBC’s Joe Scarborough saying something similar, but about Democratic Senators. Who is their enemy – other Americans? We have to answer back and let them know they can’t get away with this kind of outrage. They can’t be allowed to inject this kind of hate into the public discourse without a fight.
