Janeane Garofalo appeared on Keith Olbermann’s Countdown show on the Al Gore-owned microscopic-market cable station Current TV and went way off the radical Leftist deep end. You have to see the video to believe the absolute rantings of that bat-guano crazy lunatic. And of course, Olbermann, in his bat-guano crazy lunatic fashion, agreed with her.
Garofalo accused all Conservative women of possibly having a mental defect (Stockholm Syndrome) merely because those women are Conservative. Stockholm Syndrome, or self-loathing, or whatever other “they’re off the Leftist reservation” language she could drudge up. According to Garofalo, no woman can be Conservative or Republican and be wholly sane. In other words, women cannot make up their own minds for themselves; they need tenders to tell them what to think and how to believe.
Garofalo also accused all Republicans and Conservatives of raaaaacism merely because they are Republicans and Conservatives. She went further and claimed Herman Cain could have Stockholm Syndrome because he is a black man in the TEA Party. Oh, and he’s the “token black man”. Where have we heard that before? Oh yes, out of the mouths of many a radical Leftist. Once again, black people are not allowed to have a free mind. Black people absolutely have to be Democrats and Liberals, else they’re mentally deficient “tokens” to be used by the supposedly raaaaacist Republicans and Conservatives.
And if Cain is actually sane, then he was paid behind the scenes to do a TEA Party shtick because of course, Cain is one of those evil businessmen and that’s what businessmen do: reject ethics and moral code just to take money from others. And who could’ve paid Cain off to run on the TEA Party platform in the Republican Presidential Primary? Why, Karl Rove, who helped George W Bush thumb his nose at the Conservative wing of the Republican Party for eight long years and for whom the TEA Party holds very little (if any) respect. Nevermind a quick google which would bring up a May 23 Daily Caller article showing Rove isn’t all that high on Cain.
Of course, Garofalo also had to throw out the Koch brothers as possible backroom Sambo-buyers since no self-respecting black man would ever have a mind of his own and be Conservative due to principle, blah de blah de blah. Nevermind the Socialist George Soros’ political spending massively dwarfs any money the Kochs spend. Nevermind the various Public Employee Unions’ political spending massively dwarfs any money the Kochs spend. Nevermind a large number of Unions’ political spending massively dwarfs any money the Kochs spend. Koch Industries is 86th on the Top All-Time Donors list (1989-2010) while at least 25 Unions are higher. Furthermore, Koch Industries spent 11 percent of its political money on Democrats while the vast majority of Unions spent less than 7 percent of their political money on Republicans. So that whole radical Leftist “the Koch brothers are buying elections for Republicans” lie goes down the rat hole as soon as the facts are laid bare.
Of course, Garofalo adds in the radical Leftist lie about Conservative astroturf. You know, like that whole top-down, centralized Coffee Party reaction to the grass-roots TEA Party. Oops, the Coffee Party is a failed radical Leftist astroturf mechanism. Well then, like the “Crash the Tea Party” movement created by a teacher, whose intent was to infiltrate the TEA Party and make all manner of objectionable signs and statements to malign the TEA Party with all manner of lies. Oops, another failed radical Leftist attempt at astroturf and lies. Oh, by the way, that teacher got fired for doing his thing on school time using school equipment. Hunh, seems like all the astroturf lies (and astroturf is lying) are coming from the radical Leftists. Imagine that. It’s not like a Liberal to lie. Or is it?
Of course, as Allahpundit notes, Garofalo has a very long history of racist loggorhea.
She’s quite serious, which makes this clip blogworthy even though it’s just the latest in a long, long, long line of paint-by-numbers racial demagoguery from Garofalo on Olbermann’s show. Even the core criticism is recycled. Remember when she made the same charges about “Stockholm syndrome” and tea-party tokenism against Clarence Thomas a few months ago? You can see her roots as a comic in these segments — they’re essentially just “bits” in which she runs through her routine, the emcee grunts with approval, and the liberal audience cheers in appreciation of an old performer whom they think fondly of. She’s basically the Bob Hope of brainless left-wing race-baiters.
Those in the know, know the true history of racism and how it’s tied to the Liberal Democrats. Those in the know, know the true history of the KKK and how it was founded as the Republican-assassinating, racist, terrorist wing of the Democrat Party.
HT Arlenearmy (a supposed Stockholm Syndrome victim twice over) for the video.
While the radical fringe like Garofalo and Olbermann want to silence and malign Conservatives of all stripes, I want the lunatic fringe Leftists to keep talking. There’s a reason the vast majority of American voters distrust “Old Media.” And, with “New Media” such as this blog, people can find the truth unfiltered by radical Leftist old media such as MSNBC and Newsweek. Liberals tried to malign everything Conservative, the TEA Party especially, in 2009 and 2010. And I thank them for doing so, because Liberals helped the 2010 elections turn out the way they did — over 700 Republicans and Conservatives took previously held Democrat seats in State Legislatures, Governorships, US Congress in a Conservative and Republican wave not seen in over 70 years, a Republican outcome not seen since the 1870s in some states. Yes, the hate-filled Left and their demand that women stay in the Liberal kitchen and blacks stay on the Liberal plantation helped cause the 2010 election results. And this is partly why Liberals hate the absolute nature of the First Amendment. It’s very hard to silence your political enemies when the First Amendment’s absolute language is held to be, in fact, part of the Supreme Law of the Land.
