(FamilyRetirementClub.com) – MSNBC news host Christ Matthews is facing calls to resign after comparing the rise of Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race to become presidential nominee to Nazi Germany. It just goes to show that the radical left will go after anybody, including their own, if they fall foul of their new rules about what you can and cannot say.
After Bernie Sanders comfortably won the Nevada caucus, Matthews commented, “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,” he continued, “‘How can it be? You’ve got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?’ He said, ‘It’s over.’”
Didn’t MSNBC hosts get the memo that you’re only allowed to compare Republicans to Nazis?
You can see the exchange in the clip below.

Matthews was referring to the fact that the Democratic establishment has long been against Bernie Sanders becoming the nominee because he represents extreme values that most voters don’t support or will not vote for. However, that was all lost in translation, with “Bernie Bros” and other social justice warriors taking to social media to suggest Matthews should lose his job.
Much of the contention with his comments comes from the fact that Bernie Sanders is Jewish, even though Matthews made zero comments about Judaism or Sanders’ religious beliefs.
Even the communications director for the Sanders campaign, Mike Casca, got involved.
Writing on Twitter, Casca said, “never thought part of my job would be pleading with a national news network to stop likening the campaign of a jewish presidential candidate whose family was wiped out by the nazis to the third reich.”

Well-known far-left activistand “investigative reporter” at smear website “Right Wing Watch”, Jared Holt, actually called for the firing of Matthews.
“Fire Chris Matthews and hire reporters,” Holt said on Twitter.
Some of the comments made on Twitter are so unhinged that it’s scary. Arun Chaudhary said Matthews “must resign or be fired,” and Charlotte Clymer said, “We should all be speaking out against Chris Matthews comparing Bernie Sanders’ win in Nevada to Nazi Germany overtaking France, which was profoundly offensive and disgusting.”
I guess Bernie Bros are finally learning what it’s like to be wrongly compared to Nazi Germany.
