The full-fledged anti-GOP hysteria was on full display at MSNBC this week, with liberal anchor Chris Matthews suggesting the Republican Party was “picking” on Nancy Pelosi because she’s an “ethnic sort of person.”
Matthews was speaking with his panel on MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ when he made the stunning comments, suggesting GOP leadership loves to take “ethnic people” from “the coasts” and turn them into “the bad person.”

“Picking on somebody from one of the coasts, usually ethnic, and making them the poster person of the Democratic Party is old business for Republicans,” said Matthews.
“They did it way back with some guy in the Bronx back in the 40’s,” he added. “They did it with Teddy Kennedy. Now they’re doing it after Nancy Pelosi. They love to get an ethnic sort of person from one of the coasts and make them the bad person.”
