This might be the funniest video of the year.

When Chris "Tingles" Matthews asked Debbie Wasserman Schultz "What's the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?" the DNC chairwoman couldn't come up with an answer.

When you've got a socialist running for the Democratic nomination for president, what is the difference, Ms. Schultz?

Video c/o MSNBC and transcript c/o RealClearPolitics:


Chris Matthews vs. Debbie Wasserman Schultz: "What's The Difference Between A Democrat And A Socialist?" (w/ video)

On MSNBC's Hardball Thursday night, host Chris Matthews stumped DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) when he asked her what the difference is between a Democrat and a socialist.

"What is the difference between a Democrat and a socialist?" Matthews asked, leaving Wasserman Schultz at a loss for words.

"I used to think there is a big difference. What do you think it is?" Matthews tried again. "A Democrat like Hillary and a socialist like Bernie Sanders."

Wasserman Schultz again was unable to answer and instead tried to tell Matthews what the difference between a Democrat and a Republican is.

"The more important question is what is the difference between being a Democrat and being a Republican," she said.

"What's the big difference between a Democrat and a socialist?" Matthews again asked.

"You're chairman of the democratic party. Tell me the difference between you and a socialist," Matthews reminded her.

"The relevant debate that we'll be having this campaign is what's the difference between a Democrat and a Republican," Schultz said.

Schultz, however, was able to tell the difference between a Democrat and a Republican.

"The difference between a Democrat and Republican is that Democrats fight to make sure everybody has an opportunity to succeed and the Republicans are strangled by their right-wing extremists," she said.

Sure, this is funny, but in a sense it's not. It's no secret that "progressives" are socialists, and "progressives" like Barack Obama have overrun the Democratic Party.

Thanks to DWS for belaboring the point..

Classic!
"Oh,I don't know the answer to that;better deflect it somewheres else"
Hey now;It says something that Matthews asked a question like that.
It proves he has more of an open mind than some portray him to have.

Here's Mediaite's coverage of Tingles' interview with DWS, which provides a little more background info involving Comrade Bernie Sanders...

Things Get Awkward When Matthews Asks DNC Head About Bernie Sanders, Socialism
by Josh Feldman | 8:43 pm, July 30th, 2015

Chris Matthews chatted with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz tonight and things got awkward fast when they dived into talking about Bernie Sanders.

Matthews asked Wasserman-Schultz if, even if he loses, Sanders would have a place at the DNC convention, seeing as how he’s really popular with the base and could fire up a Democratic audience before the election.

She said he should get to speak, but Matthews kept prodding away to see if he would be allowed to speak in primetime instead of “when nobody’s watching.”

Wasserman-Schultz talked up his “progressive populist message” that people like, when Matthews asked her point-blank, “What’s the difference between a Democrat and a socialist? I used to think there was a big difference. What do you think it is?”

Wasserman-Schultz ducked the question, but Matthews pressed her and said, “You’re the chairman of the Democratic Party. Tell me what’s the difference between you and a socialist.”

She insisted that the bigger debate is the gulf between the Democrats and the Republicans on the issues...

What was that about Sanders' “progressive populist message”?

Very revealing. The Communist Party USA said something along the same lines several weeks ago:

Bernie Sanders 'political revolution'

I find it amusing that DWS dodged Matthews' question about the difference between her and a socialist. I'll take that as a nadda.

Idiotic comparison. Tell us, is there no difference between individual members of the GOP? Of course there is just like there are differences between the individual Dems. BTW the GOP has NO problem whatsoever taking money from other people to support platforms THEY like so does that mean the GOP are socialists?

So lobbying is socialism now?

Nice try.

Of course, there are differences between individual Democrats, but the fact remains that many Democrats are socialists, or democratic socialists, if you prefer.

And the fact remains that a self-confessed socialist is running for the Democratic nomination for president. Evidently, the difference between Democrats and socialists is blurred, at best.

Little Debbie is incapable of thought unless it involves a talking point or a deflection.. I expect the same behavior from those who are going to rush to defend her.

Well, she is the DNC Chair, godly, and most of MSNBC's viewers are Dem voters.

I thought Matthews had some great questions for her, too. It'll be interesting to see what time slot Sanders gets at the DNC - prime time or early morning zombie time.

And we have Bernie Sanders to thank for proving it beyond a doubt

Then there's the "progressive" brand that socialists love to hide behind. Dig this excerpt from a glowing Communist Party USA piece on Bernie's "political revolution":

The Sanders campaign is a wonderful development for 2016 and beyond in many ways.

1) The Sanders campaign can shift the dialog from the right wing and objectively boost the various initiatives underway around the country for a progressive agenda.

2) The campaign has the potential to inspire people to engage in the political process and increase voter turnout. It has the potential to help create progressive structures, campaigns and coalitions at the local level to shift the political climate.

3) It is already changing the political debate within the Democratic primary and the Democratic Party.

4) Sanders identifying as a democratic socialist opens up long-term discussion about what socialism is and could be in our country, and makes socialism respectable. It offers the possibility to deepen the discussion about socialism, third parties and political independence in and outside the Democratic Party.

He wasn't asking where they compare he was asking where they contrast and she could not come up with anything and he wasn't asking about individual Democrats but the broad political philosophies of the Democrats and the Socialist and how they contrast.

She's disciplined about staying on message. Getting into a discussion about democrats and socialism was not why she was on.

Well, do you know the difference between a Democrat and a socialist? Considering that the Democratic party is so broad that it's composed of open socialists like Sanders and Wall-Street-loving capitalists like Clinton, the question isn't easy to answer.

Now that you all have proven your point about Democrats allegedly being socialists, are the complaints about Hillary being a 1 percenter going to stop? I somehow think not, and the "all Democrats are commie socialists" mantra will keep echoing.

Thanks to DWS for belaboring the point..

Matthews of course knows that sanders is an FDR progressive. But he, like most in MSM is doing what he can to get the corporate democrat Clinton elected, for the democratic party is owned by the oligarchs, just like the GOP is.

FDR progressives gave America social security, unemployment insurance, medicare, sent ww2 soldiers to college as well as myself, a vietam vet, and kept all of the income and wealth from going to the top dogs.

Since Clinton committed treason on the people the democratic party represented since FDR, the democratic party moved away from progressivism, supporting working people, and representing them, and Obama is no progressive. Obama is a corporate, bankster democrat, and if you cannot see that by his actions,, you are dumber than a bag of hammers. Which of course, most right wing working americans are these days. Victims of a lack of an education, and clever, emotional propaganda from the very people, who hate them, but who will use them in their greed.

SO what this video tells us, is that Matthews supports the corporate owed, the banker owned democratic party, and knows sanders, a real progressive, is a threat. Of course Matthews would not want to see sanders speak in prime time at the democratic convention, even as he is clearly growing his grassroots support each week, with more energy in this run from his supporters than Clinton could ever get.

So, sanders is a threat to the corporate owed democratic party, and their sycophants like Matthews have a job of marginalizing sanders, in any way possible.


I hope Sanders makes the chill run up Matthews legs when he beats Clinton, and he pisses in his pants on air, while losing control of his bowels as well.

It looks like the last thing she was expecting was for Mathews to ask a legitimate question then actually press her when she attempted to go off on an anti-Republican rant.
