    Just found a link witht the quote.

    So, do the lefties in here agree with Chris? It really doesn't matter that these terrorists were Muslims? It doesn't matter that they did it because they were Jihadists?

    Have you noticed a lot of the media is now showing photos of Dzohkhar when he was 13, reminding me of the Treyvon Martin fiasco.

    Should they get a more severe sentence because they were Muslims, Eladar? If not, why does it matter?

    If Zimmermann is convicted of murder, shouldn't he get the death penalty by the logic you have used in the other thread?

    Did you watch the video at your link? He's only asking what difference it makes why they did it as it relates to prosecuting a case against them.

    If Bullfrogs had wings. Of course not, he's not even charged with 1st degree, and probably overcharged as it is.

    In that case Matthews is arguing with himself, over a non argument.

    If the jury finds him guilty of murder, they'll be saying he killed a teenage boy with malice aforethought. Putting aside the legalities of the matter, why does Dzohkar deserve to die for setting off a bomb that killed an 8 year old (your assertion in the other thread) but Zimmerman deserve to live for shooting a teenage boy?

    He was just making the point that there's a lot of evidence in the case. It's really not worth a post on this board, let along a whole article dedicated to calling Mathews an idiot over it.

    Well perhaps not, since Chris Matthews being an idiot is not really news.

    If he is convicted, the jury will have rejected that claim.

    Eladar...This might come as a major shock, but the "lefties" do not live by every word that comes from the mouth of Mr. Matthews. Let's allow the law enforcement authorities gather the necessary information, and let the legal process work, rather than latching on to one quote from one TV news guy, and framing it as the entire Liberal agenda.

    It might shock you but others don't live and die by what O'Reiley or Limbaugh says, but that won't stop you from arguing against them.
