Janeane Garofalo Calls Tea Parties 'Racist'

If you attended a tea party to protest your government's off the charts spending and massive taxation, you're simply a redneck racist. At least that's what failed comedienne and failed Air America talk show host Janeane Garafolo and Keith Olbermann over at MSNBC think...if that's the operative word:

"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." {..}

The actress went on to describe the brain size of typical "right-winger, Republican or conservative or your average white power activist."

"Their synapses are misfiring. ... It is a neurological problem we are dealing with," she said. This isn't the first time she's offered this analysis, either. Ms. Garofalo said similar things about Alaskan GOP Governor Sarah Palin's brain last February in an interview with an environmental blog.

The actress went on to bash the GOP on MSNBC Thursday because it had "crystallized into the white power movement" as well as Fox News, which she said has captured the "Klan demo[graphic]."

"Who else is Fox talking to? Urban older white guys and their girlfriends who suffer from Stockholm Syndrome," she said

Olbermann listened to this ridiculous rant and simple interjected comments like 'yes', right' and 'of course'.

That really is what these people think of average Americans.

It's easy enough to satirize a woman(I'm guessing she's one) like Garafalo, and Olbermann could serve as a dictionary definition of self=parody.

But I think the timing is a bit suspect and it goes beyond that, especially since we now know that this stuff is being coordinated on a daily basis by the Obama White House.

The Chosen One just had the Department of Homeland Security issue a report stating that 'right wing extremists' including returning vets are the chief danger facing this country, and if you remember, he just received funding to set up his own domestic security force "just as powerful, just as well funded as our military."

And based on a recent cop killing in Pittsburg and a crazed wack job shooting up an immigration office in New York, we've seen new calls to limit the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment.

Could the Obama Administration be setting up a scenario where there's a vastly publicized vast right wing racist 'conspiracy' that calls for extraordinary wide ranging powers for the President to counter an evil rightwing racist threat - implemented by Obama's personal security force?

It's not as far fetched as it seems - especially given the essentially fascist nature of a lot of people mistakenly labeled as 'liberals' - like the two on display at MSNBC mentioned above.

I recently came across Andrew Klavan on pjtv. He described this sort of argument as "ShutUppery".

Even liberals support the Tea Parties

'Shutuppery? LOL, Yokel!Welcome to Joshua's Army, Gerard.You're entirely correct. But let's qualify one thing:People like Garafalo, Olbermann and their ilk are NOT liberals in any sense of the word. They are Marxists with fascist tendencies, like much of what I call the Angry Left.

People like this are the fruits of the Soviet penetration into American institutions like Hollywood, Academia, journalism and even government during the 1930's and 1940's. We know this thanks to the Venona cables, a US intel project that broke the Soviet code and is now declassified and because of the Soviet archives, which historians had access to until Putin took over.

The effects are still with us today. Google gramscian warfare sometime.
