Comedienne and actress Janeane Garofalo paid another visit to Current TV's "Countdown" program on Wednesday night. Garofalo talked about Republicans, Obama, the Tea Party and of course, Herman Cain.
"It always works on a certain segment of the population. If you are trying to appeal to the worst in us. Quite literally, the worst in us and you're trying to go to the limbic brain of anxiety, fear, intolerance, hatred, bitterness, ignorance, you have to just use these very simple, as they say, dog whistle words," Garofalo said while trying to explain what she believes will be the Republican strategy in 2012. Garofalo gave a stumbling and bumbling response.
Garofalo then accused the "mainstream media" of letting gaffes by Republicans slide. No joke.
Continuing her diatribe against Republicans, Garofalo explained why the party loves a black man like Herman Cain.
"But they do love a black man like Herman Cain, and Michael Steele, and is it Ron Christie? Any of these pundits who pretend we're in a post-racial society. They like that kind of black person," Garofalo said.
While defending Occupy protests Garofalo said the Tea Party movement is not legitimate and accused supporters of being motivated by "racial intolerance."
"Or 'I'm not armed this time,' they had signs that would say that," Garofalo said while recalling news reports she saw on the Tea Party. "So, how is linking arms on a college campus an act of aggression, but saying you have a gun and you're willing to use it and it's time to secede and to revolution [sic] and you don't recognize this government is legitimate. [...] They are a [sic] astroturfed fully-funded by the Koch Brothers, FreedomWorks, and supported by FOX News. They are [a] subset of the Republican party primarily motivated by racial intolerance."

And she perpetuates division so SHE can remain relevant and spew her hate.
I thought Obama was supposed to be the first Post-Racial President?
Can’t say Janeane Garofalo is totally wrong, but we are certainly “post something” when she can pretend to be a WHITE MAN!
Yep, I love Cain because he drives those libs nuts!
Nancy Pelosi Clone right there folks....
So, are you saying that if 0bama is the first post-racial prez then we really are post-racial, and Jeanine is saying that Cain is only pretending that we are what we obviously are so we love Cain for pretending to be what is?
Poor little Keith has to have the same retreads on every other night because Current TV is such a joke like Obama. n
Why do we even care what she has to say?
I wonder if she understands how bady she just insulted any black person who is conservative
She must be a racist
So she is admitting that Obama’s campaign in 2008 was one big lie?
So we like Herman Cain because we hate blacks? Sorry Jeaneane...only liberals can be that stupid and self-loathing.
The left notices race much more than the right seems to.
Garofalo said the Tea Party movement is not legitimate and accused supporters of being motivated by “racial intolerance.”
Projection yet again. The Democratic Party is working to keep this nation divided on racial lines/
I think she is. She doesn’t realize it of course.
I think its more to do with fear. The fear that all these minorities will one day wake up and realize they been bamboozled by the Democrats for decades. The far-left knows they’ve been taking advantage of those votes for a very long time.
What race are you?
What gender are you?
In fact, what planet are you from?
If everybody pretended we're in a post-racial society, we would be.
This broad is the queen of dingbats. She’s in a class with Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Medea Benjamin and all of the rest of the Liberal “lovelies”.
