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.”
Ms. Garofalo is just a comic - nothing more, nothing less.
Nothing to see here, folks. Move along, now. Move along.
Like the equally reprehensible Bill Maher, Garafalo’s a low-level entity of the so-called “entertainment” set... her opinions are irrelevant.. and so is she.
I woke up this morning, went to my facebook page, and there was that disgusting photo posted by a so-called friend of mine (a woman) who swiped it from a gay male acquaintance. Before my coffee, I was almost sick with disgust at this woman. There was no ability to “comment,” so I’m still thinking of “unfriending” her and telling her off big time. I’m sick of women capos taking up for sick gay men (of which I would include the horrible Olbermann) who use them for their own narcissistic, crazy purposes.
Sorry to rant.
and why do we care what this nit-wit says????
In other words, she thinks blacks are too stupid, or shouldn't be allowed, to think for themselves.
Any black person who even thinks about escaping their inner city cage, their failing government schools, or refuses to eat their monthly brick of government cheese, is..... "defective".
Crack that whip, Garofalo! Crack it hard. Cain is trying to escape !!!
Garafalo reveals she is just as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside (and that is saying a lot!). And she’s an overt racist as well.
That much hate has got to be eating her up inside.
Janeane Garofalo, Keith Olbermann, “Countdown”, Current TV : no one could pay me enough to watch any of them...
She has just claimed that Herman Cain, a successful businessmand and a person of color is incapable of independent, intelligent thinking.
He should sue her for hate speech and slander.
That's the reason I de-activated my Facebook account after less than one month. I didn't like the stuff people I'd "friended" were putting on my "wall."
The lesson I took from facebook was this: in most cases, you don't want to know about the people you've fallen out of touch with. Not all, but most.
Garofalo could give Kathy Griffin a run for her money for the title of “Most Deeply Disturbed Woman in America”.
(*Alanis Morisette is a Canuck, so she doesn’t count)
A comic? She was in what is hands down the worst Seinfeld episode ever.
If blacks were to start thinking for themselves, the left would be in big trouble. Right now, keeping them ignorant and poor guarantees the left a secure voting block.
This is why Oboma canceled the successful voucher program, and why their unemployment numbers are so high. If they escape the liberal plantation, the left is finished politically. This is also why, if any black person rises up and acts as an equal, they try to destroy him or her.
If they try to escape the liberal cage, or they disobey their left wing masters, the left hunts them down.
To the progressives, blacks are nothing but animals kept only for their votes. That's why Planned Parenthood was invented. To keep their herd at a controllable level.
So Tea Party support of Herman Cain proves that the Tea Party is racist because Cain is betraying his color. So the Tea Party folks support him to try to look not racist, but they are really being racist because Cain is racist, but just happens to be black. So the way for the Tea Party to not be racist is to not support the black guy, but that would be racist. Have I got it right?
I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO HATE BLACK or WHITE PEOPLE.. EQUALLY OR UNEQUALLY..
Thought regulations are silly..
They probably shared a porn video after the show. People like them have no morals and they are, my favorite word, irrelevant in the big picture.
I can’t stomach watching some demented, homely, heavily tattooed woman making asinine ‘political’ comments on some dopey television show no one watches. Janeane Garofalo is an untalented harridan that would be virtually unknown by now if she didn’t regularly appear on some left-wing TV show with a miniscule audience and utter vicious, fallacious broadsides at any group or individual that isn’t solidly in the leftist camp. The woman is clearly delusional and needs therapy and medication but in her leftist showbiz world she passes for politically sophisticated, thus demonstrating the mental sickness that is liberalism, amplified in her chosen world of make-believe. Garofalo is an example of what happens when a person rebels against her parents and carries that to it’s extreme into middle age. Obviously, it isn’t attractive. However, she is hardly worthy of our attention and I apologize for giving her even this tiny bit of mine.
I actually enjoy “unfriending” people. Is that sick or what, lol?! It’s almost like magic! I only use facebook for my interests in theatre and film and have met some pretty smart people - almost all apolitical. But I truly have to rethink this social network stuff. Some real sickies out there.
The reason why she, much like any other liberals can’t understand hard working minorities like Mr. Cain, Condi Rice and Alan West is because their parents coddled them and gave them everything they wanted as kids, rather than earning it like many hardworking minorities did. If you’re going to survive living in the inner city or the poor south, you have to have an insane work ethic, something you hardly find around hipsters like Garafalo. I hope that bitch ODs on heroin.
Jeneane Garafalo is a card carrying moron. Why does anybody give her the time of day much less publish her mindless spew?
Sounds like the tinfoil hat is a little too tight on Ms. Banshee. She would be smart to stay in during a lightening storm.
I suppose by her logic the grand dragon of the KKK should run to prove that voters are not racist since a black man running proves the opposite?!?!
I wonder if she has to chew through leather straps every day?
Those enamored of socialism are of low self worth who know deep inside that they will never earn or create that which they covet. Therefor they favor a government that will take from those who earn or create and give, of others efforts, to them. This is without realization that this form of government gives only enslavement and misery.
Garofalo personifies the above statement.
Garofalo,you are so uninformed and ignorant. The Republican party of today is twenty points to the left of where the Democrat party is supposed to be under normal circumstances.
The political spectrum from one on the right to one hundred on the left. The politics of the people is at forty and does not move from there. The Republican party should be 30-35 but is currently 60-65. The Democratic party should be 45-50, yes they belong slightly to the right of center, but they are 75-80. The media except for Fox are 80 plus in order to refer to the Democrats as moderate. Fox is 65-70, that way they can refer to Republicans as far right.
Would it not be heaven to have a media outlet at 40 with the parties where they belong?
It's like playing roulette and the house wins every time the marble lands on either black or red. Or like the AGW scam, it it's hot, it's Gorebull Warming...if it's cold, it;s Gorebull Warming.
It's a LOSE, LOSE, LOSE, LOSE situation for everybody!
That would be a very cool lawsuit!
If it was televised, I'd buy a TV and take time off work to watch it.
“The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true”
“Boom boom dittum datum wadum chew!”
They never talk about his Horatio Alger award as someone coming from a most humble background and making something of himself.
He has done the walk of all of their talking points and challenges and has an answer for them.
Understands numbers, business, economics, money and money movement, poor, raising yourself up, jobs, hiring, managing and motivating, turn around a business, and all while being polite and respecting all.
Many thanks to Herman Cain for stepping forward.
