Skip to comments.Garofalo: Herman Cain "Being Paid To Run," Has Stockholm Syndrome"
Posted on 08/18/2011 5:24:17 AM PDT by markomalley
Liberal activist and actress Janeane Garofalo appeared on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" show on the Current TV network Wednesday night. Garofalo went on several rants, one of which included accusing the Tea Party, which she calls a "fundamentalist" movement, of racism.
Garofalo also said successful businessman Herman Cain is either being paid to run or is suffering from Stockholm syndrome because he is a "person of color" running as a Republican in the party's presidential primary.
"[He's] in this presidential race because he deflects the racism that is inherit in the Republican party, the conservative movement, the Tea Party certainly. [In] the last 30 years the Republican party has been moving more and more to the right, but also race-baiting more. Gay-baiting more. Religion-baiting more," Garofalo said.
"But, Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for president so that you go like 'I love that, that can't be racist. He's a black guy, a black guy asking for Obama being impeached.' Or 'it's a black guy whose anti-Muslim. It's a black guy who is a Tea Party guy.'"
Garofalo also had some conspiracy theories as to who may be putting Cain up to this.
"And I feel like wouldn't that suit the purposes of whomever astroturfs these things. Whether that be the Koch brothers or Grover Norquist or any anything. It could even be Karl Rove. 'Let's get Herman Cain involved so it deflects the obvious racism of our Republican party,'" Garofalo said.

I thought Herman was a math major in college ~ and fur shur that Garafalo person cannot relate to the angst that accompanies that high calling.
From the article: “Before the segment ended Olbermann showed several pictures of what looks like Michele Bachmann and her husband Marcus performing fellatio on a corn dog at the Iowa State Fair.”
Classy people, Olbermann and Garofalo.
We're still waiting.......................
Most viewers didn't watch her cancelled TV show either.
Not since her assinine comment on Fox news - “protesting Clinton’s wars wasn’t cool”.
She still owes President Bush an apology. She promised to apologize and then reneged. She’s a liar, swindler and cheat like Obama. Who cares what she says?
My only reaction is “racist bitch”.
SHE JUST HATES BLACK PEOPLE
IT COMES FROM SOME PART OF THE ‘LIMBIC BRAIN’ IN DEMOCRATS
SHE WOULD NOT BE SAYING THAT IF HE WAS WHITE
I’m sorry, Markomalley... I can’t watch the video because Garafolo makes my head feel like it is going to explode. It is infuriating to me that Garafolo basically says that no black person can be a conservative... or love their country/constitution/freedom... She is a BIGOT AND A RACIST! (I have to go now... I think my head is going to explode)
Why we give Garafalo free publicity is beyond me.
I despise Obama for what he's done to my life (financially) and this Country, but I will not let my disgust consume my soul.
That Stockholm Syndrome comment is actually pretty funny.
The Tea Party is a “fundamentalist” movement? B.S. It’s a fiscal conservative movement.
A Republican signed The Emancipation Proclamation.
Democrats formed the KKK.
Democrats installed Jim Crow Laws.
Democrats unleashed dogs and water cannons on the Civil Rights marchers.
Democrats filibustered the Civil Rights Act.
There are plenty more examples I could site, but my keyboard would wear out.
Calex59: Garofalo is Bat sh** crazy and has been for quite some time.
I’ll pay him to run....with my vote.
Why does anyone care what she says? Because she was in a few movies?
site......grrrr.....should read “cite.”
