Skip to comments.Rob Reiner Likens Tea Party to Hamas
Posted on 08/15/2014 6:56:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Hollywood director and liberal activist Rob Reiner told talk-show host Larry King that the Tea Party is like the terrorist group Hamas, because apparently both groups are extreme and cannot be negotiated with, and the only solution is to make them go away or eliminate them.
[Y]ou cant negotiate with that, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two-state solution, said Reiner.
Drawing a parallel with the Tea Party, he said, anytime youre dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and the way to do it is to eliminate it. With the Tea Party, you have to go through political thing, you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but that is really tough stuff.
On the Aug. 14 edition of Politicking with Larry King, the host asked Reiner, Whats to do about the Gaza situation, and Israel?
Reiner said, Well, there again, youve got a horrible situation where you have an extreme faction, the Hamas, that controls Gaza, that is written into their playbook, the destruction of Israel, the destruction of every Jew on the planet.
You cant negotiate with that, he said, you have to say either Hamas goes away and the Palestinian authority takes over all that region and deal with some kind of honest broker here, and create the two-state solution.
The Palestinians turned down the ability to have their own state in 1948 when Israel was formed, so clearly, Hamas, and again, the virulent faction of a, really, uh, group can control everything, said the Academy Award nominee.
Reiner continued, You look at the Congress right now in the United States, youve got a strong Tea Party group controlling the whole country, because they have a gridlock, they have a gridlock, stranglehold on Boehner. Boehner cant make a move, and so for that reason, nothing gets brought up in the Congress.
So anytime youre dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and they way to do it is to eliminate it, said Reiner. With the Tea Party, you have to go through a political thing, you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but, uh, that is really tough stuff.
The U.S. State Department designated Hamas a terrorist organization in 1997. The Tea Party stands for Taxed Enough Already and sprang up from the American grassroots in 2010 largely in opposition to Obamacare, and has broadened to include issues such limited government, fewer government regulations, and adherence to the Constitution.
Reiner was nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award for the 1992 film, A Few Good Men. He gained national attention early on as an actor in All in the Family, and some of his more well-known movies include The Jerk, This is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, Sleepless in Seattle, The Bucket List, and The Wolf of Wall Street.
Reiner is a liberal and has been very outspoken on his political views for many years.
I “liken” Meathead to Josef Stalin so I guess we’re even.
What do we expect from someone who became his character?
Well who better to know about politics then a guy who never worked a real job in his life thanks to dad? Just like political genius Sean Penn, son of communist director Leo Penn.
Once a meathead, always a meathead.
I forgot. Which political party hides behind race, women, children, aliens, animals...
We’re not talkin’ about a Mensa member here...more like a densa member.
Sorry, meathead, but we’re here, we’re p*ssed, we’re not going away, and we are a lot smarter than you.
OH KC Lion did you hear another South park target suing somebody
Al “Manbearpig” Gore he suing my fav Arabic news channel Al Jazeera America
He got it exactly backward, not surpised
liberals hate the tea party, liberals hate Israel and liberals like Hamas
the tea party is like Israel, liberals are like Hamas
I been watching a lot of Antenna TV lately it spooky that Rob Reiner turn into his Meathead character
Least his daddy Carl is funny dude hey he the dude brought you Dick Van Dyke and other shows
That must be why I wake up every morning in such an optimistic mood.
Wait, so does this mean he actually respects the Tea Party since we already know how much the left adores Hamas..looks like Reiner is living up to his Meathead name..just another brain dead liberal douche who is washed up and needs his 15 min of fame
Wait guys, Meathead finally realized that we cannot negotiate with terrorists. This is huge! Heck, he even admitted that Hamas is “extreme”!
Must have been drinking....
What does he expect from those of us he likened to savage ruthless terrorists?
...if the Tea Party was like Hamas, I’d expect to see Hollywood movies portraying the heroic Tea Party fighting the evil, oppressive American government.
ManBearPig must need to recoup some more of his money!
But Rob Reimer supports Hamas.
Meathead is like those German Jews who helped the Nazis kill other Jews.
Another Bel Air Bolshevik heard from.
As Archie would say “Aw, shaddup, you!”
I agree with him that there is no negotiating with the left wing radicals. They are absolutely in the wrong directions so no compromise is possible.
For instance if someone wants to lead us over a cliff, there is no meeting in the middle.
And when they say well then what is your plan?
The plan is don't go over the cliff.
Yeah Meathead the only thing keeping ANY of your rights in place and the tyrants in check right now ARE the Tea Party. The Leftists are either incredibly stupid, evil, or naive, or all of the above.
You can’t fix stupid!
I was debating this very thing on Facebook a few weeks about with Kathy McCarty, you may know her from the movie “Before Sunrise”, she did the music for that. She was going on about how the Tea party is a radical fringe group blah blah you name it, so I wrote her back and told her the Tea party is all about freedom. Then she wrote me back some other crap about oppression and the usual screams of birth control so I wrote her back “You are not reading what I wrote. The Tea party is all about FREEDOM. NOT having the government involved in every single aspect of your life. Not having them breathing down your back even when you donate and serve out food to the homeless LIKE I DO” I am still waiting to hear back from her.
And BTW, this happened again today: I volunteer for the Harry Chapins Lighthouse food bank here on Long Island where we feed the homeless, the poor and feed kids, my station is focusing on the kids and once again the “health inspectors” came around and were busting our balls, demanding we need a “licensed food server” even though all the food we serve is wrapped up tight in cellophane and cans which the kids hate. For example carrots in cans, tuna in cans, corn in cans all the stuff that can survive a 1000 years being that they are wrapped up in vacuum sealed cans. Oh yes, and then we have to make sure all the kids wash their hands and that we serve the CANS while wearing latex gloves. This is NOT about health, this is about CONTROL and STEALING money which people like this jackass Meathead and Kathy McCarty can’t get through their thick skulls. This is some really bad ass evil sh*t and it is truly borderline tyranny. I mean just imagine: Out of the goodness of peoples hearts they want to feed those who are hungry and the state comes and steals thousands of dollars in contributions. Just absolutely demon crap.
The take-home message of this story is that even hard core leftists, when the argument or situation suits them, will admit that islamic terrorism is bad. Their hypocrisy and level of cognitive disconnect could fill a textbook.
A meathead — dead from the neck up.
What a coincidence, because I liken Rob Reiner and other blind faith libs to Hamas.
OK, you have to wonder about the sanity of people like this. I mean, the Tea Party is made up of mostly people over 50, many are retired, travel about in their motors homes. some spend there days on their ocean fishing boats. Others like to spend there days with their grand children fishing, hiking and and outdoors activities.
Hamas are 15-47 year old men, many who have no jobs, no income, and they have no desire for women, girlfriends or waives (Liberals?) and they use children as human shields, advocate no rights for others who think differently than they do (Liberals?) and they kill other people because they have hatred and they liberaly take the lives of others (Liberals?)
So Rob, how can Hamas, who are clearly liberals, be like the Tea Party? In fact the Tea Party is much like the Israelites, whom the Hamas hates
I think that the Left has a more accurate view of the revolutionary potential of the Tea Party than most Tea Partiers themselves do.
When they say we are out to destroy America, they’re right, because what they mean by “America” is a distorted and deformed version of what the Founders created. We ARE out to destroy it. And when we do, we mean to bring down Pelosi, and Reid, and Boehner, and McConnell, and all the other traitors who have ruined our country.
They fear us, and they are right to fear us.
“The Tea Party stands for Taxed Enough Already and sprang up from the American grassroots in 2010 largely in opposition to Obamacare, and has broadened to include issues such limited government, fewer government regulations, and adherence to the Constitution.”
Read that slowly. Then consider the fact that progressives plan to exterminate us. Meathead isn’t going off the range here. He is repeating his conclusions and those of his fellow “liberals”.
Well he may have a point since we do want to drive the Libs into the sea. :-)
Maybe Hollyweird SHOULD be driven into the Pacific.
Absolutely. Meat head’s name should be $#*ead.
And it might have been if All In The Family were happening today. Back in the day, as cutting edge as the show was, such words weren’t uttered on tv...even by Archie.
Of course AITF wouldn’t have an audience today. It was very tame by today’s standards.
I think the Meathead is a goofball.
We will simply live with such accusations leveled upon common Americans with no response (most likely), or we will finally become fed up with such slander and take up arms to put an end to the culture that allows such slander to continue unabated.
Unfortunately, I see the latter as the likely course as those who are being slandered are simply not prepare to stand up to these asshats as a matter of principle, which means matters will only continue to deteriorate and such slander will become “factual” to the majority of Americans.
not naive .
A national divorce could stop all that, but they won’t allow it.
“he said, anytime youre dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and the way to do it is to eliminate it.”
I’ve been arguing this fact about the left for many years.
I love Mel Brooks, probably the best pick up story I ever heard was from how he met his wife Anne Bancroft in the early 1960s. Back then she looked like Cindy Crawford in her prime, just insanely hot looking, but this little guy Mel Brooks was the only guy who had the guts to really pursue her and put himself all out. They said that is what the movie “The Graduate” really came from.
If the Tea Party was Hamas meat head’s head would be on a spike. The Tea Party is generally made up of normal, decent, moral, just , and patriotic people. Everything democrats and liberals are not.
Stifle yourself, Meathead.
Since when do Marxists not love Hamas? He most likely has donated to them.
Pray America wakes up
