EXCLUSIVE: Chris Rock Attacks Conservative Author Over Tea Party Question
Breitbart ^ | 3/14/12 | Wynton Hall

Posted on 03/14/2012 10:02:16 AM PDT by Nachum

The New York Times bestselling author of the explosive new book, Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers, Jason Mattera, had his crew’s camera snatched and hurled by comedian Chris Rock when he asked the star why he has called the Tea Party racist (video below).

“I was stunned,” said Mr. Mattera in an exclusive interview with Big Hollywood. “Tea Party members get called the worst things imaginable and still remain peaceful. But ask a big Hollywood celebrity to explain himself and the guy goes ballistic, wrestles the camera away from my camerawoman, chucks it 50 feet, and then challenges me to a fight. It’s unreal. And it perfectly illustrates why I decided to investigate and writeHollywood Hypocrites.”

The confrontation, which took place around 2:00 a.m. on January 23, 2012, at Spike Lee’s Sundance Film Festival after party at Tao night club, ended with Chris Rock challenging the conservative author to a fight, says Mr. Mattera:

“Chris Rock shouted, ‘You want to throw down? Let’s throw down right now!’ Of course, he was standing safely behind two bodyguards when he said it.”

The clash was ignited when Jason Mattera inquired about disparaging comments Chris Rock made about the Tea Party in an Esquire article in 2011:

When I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism's almost over. Because this is the last — this is the act up before the sleep. They're going crazy. They're insane. You want to get rid of them — and the next thing you know, they're fucking knocked out. And that's what's going on in the country right now.

Jason Mattera says his confrontation with Chris Rock is just the opening salvo in a series of forthcoming ambush celebrity interviews with some of the big name

I see that skinny little punk is a real tough guy when he's hiding behind his gang-banger thugs.

Wait a minute. The book is “Hollywood Hypocrites” and you wonder why Chris Rock responded in a way he did?

It’s OK, he supports DEMOCRATS, and there was a Meme to be pimped, so there is nothing here.

Move along, Sheeple.

Should tell him to dismiss his bodyguards and then take him up on it. Introduce his knee to Mr. Foot.

Conservative reporters dealing with lefties need to use a two-camera approach: one camera for the interview, and a second camera discretely hanging back a few yards to record attacks on the reporter or cameraman.

Somehow I don't think the reason Chris Rock attacked this guy's camera woman is because he recognized the author's name and connected it with a book.

In the first place, Rock is semi-literate.

But Chris Rock is a celebrity and a liberal . . . why should he ever have to explain himself or be held accountable for anything?

Meanwhile, while the Hollywood coke snorting ass wipes attack the Tea Party, the Occupy Turds have committed how many rapes, murders, assaults?

In the day I would have relished a challenge like that from a militant scumbag like Chris, but these days my arthritic wrist would still be hurting long after he regained consciousness, and got his teeth fixed. Still, it might be worth it, but I would rather watch someone else give him a spanking.

Yes that is going to be bad. But on the other hand they will most like riot in the most democratic and liberal cities and the damage will mostly be confined to those areas. They deserve it because it is the welfare statists that have taught people for generations that they are entitled to other peoples lives, work and property simply because they “need” it. They made their beds and they can suffer the consequences. I don’t feel sorry for them one iota. Just don’t come to my neighborhood looking to get your mad out worthless pieces of garbage “gimmiepigs” (saw that on another thread and really like the term. Don’t remember who coined the phrase or I would attribute it).

Right you are. Using “tea-bagging” as a pejorative is gay bashing. Haters.

Naw, cuz the queers themselves are using the derogatory term for Tea Partiers. Then again, you have to figure queers are full of self-hate, and low self-esteem.

I'm betting liberals killed Andrew Breitbart... we'll know soon - elite liberals are the haters - they are the bullies.

And I can guarantee you that if Breitbart was killed and it became common knowledge, MANY Democrats and other people on the left would have no problem at all with that fact. The tolerant, peaceful people are completely ate up with hate and violence. They get more and more aggressive every day.

Sounds like Chris is hanging out with the militants.

I agree with you. It's especially sad because Andrew had young children. I don't know why that should matter more, but it does - it's somehow a deeper evil.

When I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism's almost over. Because this is the last — this is the act up before the sleep. They're going crazy. They're insane. You want to get rid of them — and the next thing you know, they're f***ing knocked out. And that's what's going on in the country right now.

OK, I give up. Can anybody decipher this gibberish? It makes no sense. "Last act up before the sleep"? "knocked out"?? What does that mean? It's some kind of word-salad. There's real words in there but they're apparently in the wrong order.

"There's real words in there but they're apparently in the wrong order."

This is actually another language: 'Obamazoid'.

Let me tranlate: they're f***ing knocked out. And that's what's going on in the country right now.

They are annoying me and I hate whitey.

Having spent years on FR reading articles about hateful spew from the left, I am somewhat fluent in Ignoramus so maybe I can help. I think what he is trying to say in this garbled English-like language is that the Tea Party is made of racists and this is the last act. The Tea Party tried to make one final stand. One last hurrah, but it failed. Now, the conservative right is going to be overwhelmed and snuffed out by the left. Maybe there are some other Ignoramusese majors out there that can verify or dispute my translation.

I know what you are saying. If I heard that one of the major, well known leftists (politician, actor, etc.) died , I definitely wouldn't shed a tear, but I think it could literally come out that Breitbart was killed for his beliefs and a good portion of them would be okay with it. I believe the evil has infected them that deep.

It bothers me too because Andrew Breitbart was such a good person. I know not in their eyes, but a normal person could tell that he was very decent. I didn't know him personally, but I still feel sad and shocked about his passing. I liked him because he was of my generation. Liked 80's music. Approached things in a modern way and was full of energy. There's a big void there now.

You're right - a normal person - a good person - can easily see he was a decent man. Thanks for sharing.
