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.
