MSNBC host Chris Matthews tore-into Bernie Sanders’ far-left proposals ahead of the New Hampshire primary this week; saying ‘Socialism’ simply “doesn’t work” when put into practice.
“The Democratic Party has to figure out its ideology… A lot of us will be sorting things out if the Democrats run a socialist candidate,” said Matthews. “I have my own views on Socialism… They go back to the 1950s. I remember the Cold War. I believe if the Reds had won the Cold War there would have been executions in Central Park, and certain other people would be there cheering.”

He doesn’t like socialism and “it doesn’t frickin’ work!”

“The issue of this campaign is Socialism. Some people like it. Those of us like me who grew up in the Cold War… I’ve seen what socialism is like. I don’t like it. It’s not only not free, it doesn’t frickin’ work!” he added.

MOMENT OF SANITY: Chris Matthews Slams ‘OUTRAGEOUS, ELITIST’ Democrats
A left-wing panel at MSNBC had a brief moment of sanity Tuesday, with network host Chris Matthews launching an all-out attack on the “elitist” Democratic Party, saying the American people have had enough of over-educated, smug politicians who think they know better.
Matthews was asked to comment on the legacy of Robert Kennedy 50 years after his assassination, saying the party had lost its way because of “too many elitists” simply out to raise money from wealthy donors.
“A true democrat, lower case ‘d,’ thinks they’re no better than anybody else. That’s what a Democrat is,” Matthews said. “And the party regains that when white, black, Hispanic people, everybody, starts to think of themselves as one of them instead of being better than them. [Then] they’ll get back to the party of the people, and they’re not there yet.”
“There’s so much elitism in the Democratic party, it’s outrageous,” he added.

‘VERGE OF TEARS’: Chris Matthews RIPS Bernie, ‘Not Happy’ with Dem Candidates, All Have ‘Obvious Problems’
MSNBC host Chris Matthews was on the verge of tears on the day of the Iowa Caucus Monday; saying he’s “not happy with this field” and there’s no chance “Bernie Sanders is going to be President of the United States.”
“I’m not happy,” said Matthews. “I’m not happy with this field. I think they’ve got to find a candidate for President who can beat Trump. I’m still looking. They all have problems, obvious problems. Bernie Sanders is not going to be President of the United States.”
“Warren was riding high, I thought she was going to sweep, then she got a lot of scrutiny. Does this stuff add up? Guess who’s going to get it now? Bernie’s going to get it now,” he added. “Who is this guy ideologically? Why does he say the stuff he does about Maduro.”
