Kook Actress Garofalo: Tea Parties Were About Hating the Black Man

You may have missed this.

It was on Keith Olbermann's show.

Actress Janeane Garofalo said the Tax Day Tea Party protests were really about hating the black man in the White House.

How original. The 8 minute long hate-filled rant is Here.

The Washington Times reported:

Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.

"Let's be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don't know their history at all.

It's about hating a black man in the White House," she said on MSNBC's "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening.

"This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions.

The actress went on to describe the brain size of typical "right-winger, Republican or conservative or your average white power activist."

"Their synapses are misfiring. ... It is a neurological problem we are dealing with," she said. This isn't the first time she's offered this analysis, either. Ms. Garofalo said similar things about Alaskan GOP Governor Sarah Palin's brain last February in an interview with an environmental blog.

What a disgusting bunch... They're cracking sick sex jokes, calling fiscal conservatives neo-Nazis or calling them racists.

The Left has really outdone itself this week.

The good thing is that no one, except MSNBC, really takes her seriously. She isn’t exactly a sought after commentator, much less a sought after actrees.

Are they racist against the black messiah?

You have to love the fact that the left this week has made ZERO attempt at debating the merits of the protest and instead trudge out the last ditch defenses of racism as their response.

This is tantamount to admitting you lost the debate because the point is so obvious you can’t refute it. Playing the race card is now the same as mentioning Nazi in a debate. First one to say racism or Nazi loses.

It's what libs do. They are stupid. They can't make a logical argument, so they scream, insult, demean, play the race card. They can't fathom the concept that someone might disagree with them and dare oppose them. They've not been seriously challenged before, in the media or on the streets. Now that it's happening, they're flipping out.

They're really scraping the bottom of the barrel here by putting this ditz on. She is so blinded by her racial hatred that she doesn't even know that, by definition, Obombah isn't really a "black man". He is a mulatto. He poses as a "black man" for political and social advantage. He is a user, a poseur, an ersatz "African-American" without a trace of slave blood (unless his ancestors in Kenya sold some of their brothers to the slave traders). But libs see things as they think they should be, not as they are, and that's why airheads like this dummy are so clueless.

Ironically, the Left probably would call them various racist terms because they participated.

Best line of the quote above:

Talk about unclear on the concept. This makes the info-tart on CNN sound like a genius!

If the left has proof of terrorists on the right, THEY NEED TO ARREST THOSE “TERRORISTS”. That’s how it works in a country based on law.

And if there are terrorists on the right -(or left) and they’re not being arrested and tried in an open court of law ( what the left requires for the rights of Muslim Terrorists) then WHY NOT?

IS OBAMA protecting domestic terrorists by NOT arresting them? And proving a case against them? Left or right... We don’t deal with innuendo - and threat and “stories” about how bad a group is... All Muslims aren’t Osama, all blacks aren’t Willy Horton - all women aren’t ditsy - all conservatives aren’t Timothy McVeigh.

Liberals profile when it works for them - and they don’t do it based on millions of Muslims working against us - or millions of blacks in prisons - NO, WHEN IT COMES TO THE RIGHT - it’s based on one man - Timothy McVeigh.

Show us the millions of conservatives who are breaking the law. Show us their crimes. Do it the American way - arrest them and take them to court and PROVE the allegations. And if you can’t do that,

I know I repeat myself, but I still maintain the most dangerous ethnic group on earth ever is the white liberal.(Used to really tick off my liberal friends in the 60’s!!!-eventually I learned to not even try to be friends to them - they were ALL users of anyone they could)

I wish someone would ask these misinformed loud mouths at what point would they allow criticism of Obama and they won’t consider it ‘racist’! Really....WHAT could this leader do that they would even understand as wrong? Murder? Rape? Theft? What? Fact is no issue will be discussed with their ‘approval’. What has them ticked off is the fact that we have a voice at all. They have the media, the white house, the senate, house of reps, the entire bureaucracy.....and now they want what little we have left....PEACEFUL assembly. We are not the first ‘group’ in this nation to be persecuted, and we won’t be the last. It’s not about race, it’s about power. And the ‘power’ is WAY out of balance. History does indeed repeat itself.

These liberal traitors have pushed their race baiting so far that they elected a man based only on color. My fear is after they get done with us, many will be so soured on Obama that no good black American will ever be elected.

Our local TV had the Tea Party coverage with one white liberal just bugging out! He said ‘The blue eyes’ are just all mad ‘cause we have a black president....blah, blah.

So is that the requirement for the next persecution...BLUE eyes? So in my family I’d go off to the gulag, but not my brown eyed child or brown eyed mother?

This is MASS insanity!

Mass insanity indeed. There is a group psychosis going on. Just like under Clinton, this group doesn’t think Obama can do any wrong.

They are totally disconnected from reality.

The one thing I like about this forum, is that if someone gets ‘out there’ our own will call them on it. At the leftist sites, it’s one big happy family of loons.

Historically, this is the normal attitude of leftists, as far as how they portray those with whom they disagree. The Soviet Union would declare political opponents insane, and lock them in asylums. Or, if they could get away with it, they would just have them murdered. Don't kid yourself. JG, KO, and many on the left would have those with whom they disagree sent off to camps for "reeducation" or death. Their level of hatred for those with whom they disagree has no bounds.

What’s really a hoot is the guy is whiter than me, but he was trying to sound like he was ‘black’...even the transcript was screwed up with his ‘ebonics’. What a shame when a man has so little respect for his own identity that he acts to be something else.

Scary, D1, downright scary.

I couldn’t agree more from your description. Black is certainly in these days. While I am glad some respect comes their way, if it’s going to result in a man consummately unqualified to hold the job he is elected to, then this has turned destructive. I can’t support that.
