Chris Matthews compared dealing with angry rural Americans to combating terrorism, emphasizing the role of anger in mobilizing voters.
He highlighted rural Americans’ anger towards liberal elites and made an analogy to the sentiments of terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Matthews suggested that enraging people, whether rural Americans or enemies abroad, only fuels more animosity, drawing parallels between the two situations. (Trending: Famous Actor Under Investigation After Calling For Biden’s Execution)
“This is rural rage. They are so angry at the liberal establishment, the coastal elite. They look at people on television … ‘They don’t have to worry about us,’” Matthews said.
“And the regular guy in the country goes, ‘There they are snarling and making fun of us again,’ and every time we make fun of Trump, we’re making fun of them … It’s a weird thing, but in a way, it’s like fighting terrorism.”
“We think we just put the Army in or Israel just puts the IDF in, and they’re going to solve the problem,” Matthews said.
“It never solves the problem because you enrage people. And we did it with Afghanistan, and we did it with Iraq.”
“We enraged the enemy to the point where they’re more fiery than ever, and they hate us more than ever. Armies don’t make peace.”
