Well, that didn’t take long, did it? To the kook extreme Left, if you disagree with any of this administration’s policies, you must be a racist.
I wonder what their excuse would be if Obama was white?
Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.
“Let’s be very honest about what this is about. This is not about bashing Democrats. It’s not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea party was about. They don’t know their history at all. It’s about hating a black man in the White House,” she said on MSNBC’s “The Countdown” with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. “This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that.”
You know, I would be insulted by these remarks if they were made by anyone relevant. Luckily for me, Garofalo (and, for that matter, Olbermann) have not been relevant for years.
Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions. (H/T - The Washington Times)
Wow, there’s a shock. Olbermann fancies himself as an intellectual/journalist, but the fact of the matter is that he is neither. Again, it is a good thing these remarks were made on his show, because very few Americans heard them. Countdown gets less ratings than a Billy Mays infomercial.
Olbermann would be better off abandoning the wingnut talking points and sticking to his strengths: reading sports scores on ESPN. As for Garofalo, I wish she would get the Hell off of 24 - she is easily the weakest link in this season’s cast.
Yeah, her acting (and her character) sucks donkey balls.
