It’s almost a tragicomedy at this point how much the media seems to be hyping the talking points of Iran on the death of IRGC terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.
The NY Times even termed him a “warrior-philosopher.” Let’s ignore the thousands of deaths he responsible for and the stories about him hanging people on meathooks, that’s obviously just a little flawed behavior on his part.
But MSNBC’s Chris Matthews apparently wanted to go one better than the New York Times.
Matthews had already revealed himself broken by terming the killing of Soleimani an “assassination,” as we reported.
But he just got even worse and compared Soleimani to Princess Diana or Elvis, claiming Soleimani was in fact a “beloved hero.”

Can we remind you that he’s a terrorist who killed hundreds of Americans? And wounded thousands more? And was behind the recent rocket attacks on Americans and the attack on the American embassy? Not to mention he’s killed thousands across the Middle East?
Contrary to “beloved hero,” he’s hated across the region for how he’s oppressed people. Not only in other countries, but in Iran itself. He is regarded as a monster by many in Iran and reports were many were forced to attend his funeral.
But way to put out Iranian propaganda, Chris!
except they were not terrorists. Libs have become unhinged beyond anything sane.

Yeah, I remember when Elvis planted that roadside IED and tried to take out The Beatles.

I don’t recall armed Revolutionary Guards going door to door telling people if they didn’t get into the funeral procession they would be killed at Elvis’s funeral………

Iran forces people to attend the funeral, then dozens are killed in a stampede…
It takes a special breed of stupid to believe that 🤪pic.twitter.com/FTuXFC9irq

Ah, yes. Large crowd = revered leader. Just like when North Koreans "celebrated" Kim Jong Un's victory. They LOVE him! No other reason they or Iranians could be out in the streets… it's not like they'd get murdered or anything… https://t.co/ojvCK3SlbA pic.twitter.com/32fKK8CLBw

Scary that people like Chris Matthews have a platform to push such “news.”
