Chris Matthews on Rand Paul and Ted Cruz

Geoffrey Dickens of the Media Research Center writes:
At the same time that rising Republican Senate stars Rand Paul and Ted Cruz were making history with a filibuster Chris Matthews, on Wednesday's Hardball, insisted Paul and Cruz must be heroes to hate groups.

What I find telling is not simply that Mr Matthews blatantly attempts to artificially link two US Senators to bad people, but that he is asserting, and attempting to get his guests to affirm, that Senator Paul and Senator Cruz each hold viewpoints that are outside the perspective of people actually participating as citizens. If you hold those views you cannot be a real American, according to Mr Matthews' logic.
