Chris Matthews of MSNBC drew an analogy between dealing with angry rural Americans and combating terrorism, emphasizing the significance of anger in mobilizing voters.

He highlighted rural Americans’ anger towards liberal elites and likened it to the sentiments of terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“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. (Trending: Trump Releases Must-See Christmas Message)

“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,” he added.

“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.”

Matthews also suggested that enraging people through military presence does not solve problems, drawing parallels with the recent decision to rescind a $900 million award to Elon Musk’s SpaceX, impacting broadband internet access for rural Americans.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr expressed concern about the impact on rural America due to the decision.

“The real loser is gonna be rural America,” FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr said.

“Elon Musk is gonna be fine — the $900 million isn’t that big of a deal to him — but we had millions of Americans that were guaranteed to get high-speed service that now the FCC has taken that commitment, vaporized it and replaced it with nothing.”
