    Chris Matthews compares Bernie victory to the fall of France to Germany in 1940

    Chris Matthews compares Bernie victory to the fall of France to Germany in 1940

    “Bernie Sanders is hard to beat right now … it is pretty much over”

    Chris Matthews on MSNBC is not taking Bernie’s victory in the Nevada caucuses well. It signals to him that Bernie is unstoppable in the Democrat primaries. Such a result would be the end of the Democrat Party as a viable force, a result so serious that he compared it to the fall of France in 1940 to Germany.

    Mediaite has some of the trancript:

    Matthews came on after Democratic strategist James Carville went on a diatribe against Sanders, and as the MSNBC host made reference to that, he invoked the historical episode when the Germans overran the Maginot Line and forced France to surrender in the middle of World War II.

    “It looks like Bernie Sanders is hard to beat right now,” Matthews said. “I’m with Carville all the way in terms of the dangers of what lies ahead in November. They’re sitting on so much oppo research on Bernie.”

    But Bernie “did his job” in Nevada, Matthews said, adding “it is pretty much over.”

    Matthews continued with a comment on those who haven’t yet understood Sanders’s grip of the race:

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

    Don’t like the analogy? Perhaps this is a better one:

    “Sanders Doesn’t represent Democrats, Most Americans”

    Should be corrected to:

    “Sanders now represents Democrats who don’t represent most Americans…”

    BTW, I take Matthews’ analogy as an extension of the “Trump is worse than Hitler” nonsense. The Dems are going to lose to Trump the way France lost to Hitler. Speaks volumes about why Americans have turned off the MSM, Hollywood and the rest. They just refuse to open their eyes and see reality. Their non-stop cartoonishly shrill attacks on Trump have turned him into an unstoppable colossus.

    For all their rhetoric, no smart Democrat wants to run against a popular incumbent President. The party will be back for the next election. Then we will find out how bad their candidates are, when there’s a good opening to win.

    gee allowing someone from a third party (I)to caucus with a different party somehow didn’t work out well for one party.
    who could have thunk that??

    Trump will stop him.

    Perhaps this will be the question which many Democrats must answer in November. Stick with the current ‘devil’ they know which has attributes they have and want to continue to profit on or oppose and pay double for the ‘devil’ they do not know. Party affiliation will not be the deciding factor no matter what the polls report as we have come to realize over the past 5 years.
