Garofalo: No, seriously, tea partiers are racists

posted at 4:10 pm on May 12, 2009 by Allahpundit

The evidence: A single sign she saw at a single rally which, as Ace notes, almost certainly didn’t have any racial intent. But if St. Janeane, virtuous progressive, saith there be racism, then racism there be. My favorite part is when she wonders why tea partiers weren’t out in the streets last year protesting Bush’s then-record budget deficit; a better question, one Griff Jenkins lamentably didn’t think of, is why leftists who grumbled about Bush’s spending aren’t out in the streets now that Obama’s quadrupled it. Below the clip of Garofalo you’ll find the MoveOn ad from last March that Red State rediscovered last month. I’m surprised it hasn’t gotten more traction in conservative media, so perfectly does it capture liberal hypocrisy on this topic.

I’m not sure what she means by designating Barry Goldwater a true conservative and then dating the death of conservatism to the year his ideological heir was elected, but maybe we’ll figure it out in the comments. Fun fact: Minutes before this aired last night, over at MSNBC, the guy who egged on Garofalo during her now infamous descent into demagogic race-baiting insanity felt obliged to tut-tut Wanda Sykes for making jokes about 9/11. Calling Rush Limbaugh a hijacker in an obvious, if lame, attempt at humor? Too far. Smearing conservatives far and wide as racists and rednecks with the utmost seriousness? A-OK. That’s Olbylogic for you. Exit question for Kayo: How come equating Limbaugh with a terrorist is no-go but saying Fox News is “worse than Al Qaeda” is perfectly fine?

Update: A thought experiment to test Garofalo’s supposed respect for Goldwater: Imagine her reaction if a prominent Republican today said, “Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.”

Can’t you put a banner over this obscene photo? She looks as bad as she acts on 24

Just think you could be married to someone like this.Can you think what it would be like to wake up in the morning look across the bed and see that face looking back at you.Excuse me while i go throw up.

Um, only 94% of blacks voted for the “filthy liar” POTUS. Just sayin.

madne0 on May 12, 2009 at 5:20 PM

I’m trying to figure out something I liked her in. I guess Mysterymen but then again she actually detracted more from the film and made it worse for me then it should been if they got someone else.

scrubbiedude on May 12, 2009 at 5:21 PM

My 14 year old daughter and I agreed last night, that the best ending to 24 this season would a final scene where Chloe picks up a keyboard or an LCD monitor, and smashes it right into GoBarfalos face. That would be awesome.
Number one on YouTube for weeks.

roninacreage on May 12, 2009 at 5:21 PM

I liked in the interview how she said, “where were these teabaggers over the last 8 years”?

My answer to her is “standing up for Michael Steele while the lefties were throwing OREO’s at him.”

But I’m just a RACIST!!!

The women is a cool-aid drinking Skank.

Yeah, but unfortunately no one on the right seems to be doing a very great (and articulate) job of making this point.

Someone needs to have her on their show and explain this to her. Have Janeane spar with some of her alleged intellectual capacity… We have to give her credit for answering the questions, now someone should have an honest to goodness debate with her.

Yes, exactly. This is the entire point of the post I made earlier in this thread. The Fox reporter here did a horrendous job.

What an ugly b!tch. And I mean that in the truest sense… she’s an ugly-ass hound dog.

Yes, exactly. This is the entire point of the post I made earlier in this thread. The Fox reporter here did a horrendous job.

Zetterson on May 12, 2009 at 5:41 PM

Yeah, I wouldn’t have expected a lot out of him… but you would have thought he could have been a little less “judgmental,” if he wasn’t willing to defend the Tea Baggers himself.

Upstater85 on May 12, 2009 at 5:43 PM

That picture of her has to be one of the best yet. She looks half stoned, and half recovering from a hangover. She also looks like she has TEABAGS under her eyes.

portlandon on May 12, 2009 at 5:44 PM

She is no longer attractive enough to go around having indescriminate sex with faceless, nameless men, she has no husband or family to speak of so the only thing that she has to hang on to is her bitterness.

She was never good looking in the first place. She only got famous because Ben Stiller dated her.

I care about what she says… If we don’t listen to what this true representative of the left is saying, we aren’t going to see what their next “plan” is… We should be watching people like her… then fight back hard (and with words instead of 5sec clips of her rantings…)

The funny thing is, the left call’s Prejean a ‘dumb bitch’. Garofalo couldn’t find her own fat ass with a GPS and flashlight.

GarandFan on May 12, 2009 at 6:04 PM

I kind of understand how such an ugly woman such as Garofolo can be against marriage, and traditional values and all the conservative ideals she whales against in her efforts for shock notoriety via Youtube videos.
She is typical of the other liberal poster-women I loathe; Streisand, Rosie, Joy Behar and Oprah.

Remember, they worshiped a “Messiah like” black man who lived in a large white house and held power over his followers so that they would do whatever he commanded. Yes, kids, just like Obama.

d1carter on May 12, 2009 at 7:26 PM

…wait a minute!

…when they want to distract everyone from actual hard news (the creeping state, the burgeoning budget, setting the Middle East up for disaster, socializing everything from healthcare to you kid’s lemonade stand), don’t they usually throw out stories (e.g., Ms. Prejean and pissing off the pervs) about women you’d actually like to have sex with?

…if so, then all this Garofalo noise is an abrupt departure from that….

…or, maybe St. Janeane’s agent has some sort of exposure deal with the 24-hour news cycle magi to supply them with meaningless drivel for folks to rattle on about….

…sheesh…the gal’s a skank…a glib skank, but a skank nonetheless….

…let’s just move along…maybe the news’ll go back to presenting us with more appetizing distractions (Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, maybe Carmen Electra in a love triange with Brangelina)….

Actually, I now think she is insane.

AUINSC on May 12, 2009 at 4:16 PM

Me too. When I saw this clip tonight, that was my conclusion.

Seeing her the first time with Oberman was enough to make me suspicious; last night’s clip clinched it.

1sttofight on May 12, 2009 at 8:27 PM

I like Griff Jenkins, he does some tough interviews. And I was at that Tea Party in DC, I got there late but stayed till the bitter end, and he was there when I left. To answer his question at the end, what do these bitter leftys want…? I truly don’t think they’ll be happy until all dissent from their point of view is totally crushed and the leaders either in jail or dead. That is seriously what I think might make them happy. Well at least happy in their minds, because if we had that situation in actuality, we’d be living under communism and then no one would be happy except the few in power.

I loved watching the character Jack Bauer tear her a new one, twice on 24 over the past 2 episodes.

She is such a weasel, a sad human being.

FireBlogger on May 12, 2009 at 8:38 PM

Of course, she doesn’t apologize. She’s totally, incurably batshit insane. If she weren’t, she’d live in the real world where people with jobs protest outrageous government spending rather than burn crosses or lynch people.

chunderroad on May 12, 2009 at 8:52 PM

Well, she answered the question. Anyone who protests now who didn’t protest Bush is a Racist.

Odd definition, but she’s entitled to her world, I guess.

AnninCA on May 12, 2009 at 8:57 PM

She has stereotyped people as bigoted.

This has to be some kind of “irony humor,” we’re all just too slow to get it.

Why is it racist to liken President Obama to Todd Bridges’ character Willis? Todd Bridges did cocaine–just like Obama. Todd Bridges was represented in court by Johnny Cochran, a man in the mold of Reverend Wright. And Willis Drummond was raised by white people and attended prestigious schools–just like President Obama in Hawaii!

Who doesn’t love Different Strokes, a show that routinely addressed racism? Garafalo should be happy that conservatives are mining 1980′s pop-culture classics to lambaste Barry.

Would I be more or less racist if I compared him to Dwayne Wayne from A Different World? You can’t call a man racist who grew up watching and loving Lisa Bonet! Come on, Jenene! Even you can see that!

Personally, I’d prefer if B.O took cues from Carl Winslow from Family Matters (and the voice of TMNT’s “Shredder”)…but it’s not going to happen. A man can dream, can’t he. A man can dream…

nelsonknows on May 12, 2009 at 11:20 PM

a better question, one Griff Jenkins lamentably didn’t think of, is why leftists who grumbled about Bush’s spending aren’t out in the streets now that Obama’s quadrupled it.

That’s EASY!

Kinda sorta like when she didn’t protest Clinton’s wars.

You can’t take anything said by Goldwater in the last 10 years of his life as Conservative. He basically had Alzheimer’s and his trophy wife was using him to make political statements. She isn’t a Conservative. She isn’t much more than a bottom feeding golddigger.

Squiggy on May 13, 2009 at 9:54 AM

I would rather be considered a racist that a crazy commie who does not feel anyone is smarter that she is.

Because these demonstrations did not take place during the last eight years, she equates the demonstration as racist.

She cannot see through her high priced glasses that her idol is in the process of making U.S. a communist ruled country. She has to retake History and see that Marxists and Stalinist believers used, are the techniques being used by her heart throb to take control of U.S.
