Pop quiz: How much hate can two liberals muster?
If the liberals are Keith Olbermann and Janeane Garofalo, quite a lot.
While speaking with Keith Olbermann on his latest incarnation of Countdown, now on Al Gore’s Current network, Garofalo continued to insist the Tea Party was racist.
The Daily Caller reported she wasn’t happy that some still “despised her” after she called the Tea Party “a bunch of teabagging rednecks” in 2009.
“I do not enjoy when people don’t like me,” Garofalo said. “I would prefer to be well like in any and all situations. And I also feel it’s quite unjust to be punished for calling racism ‘racism.’ And I don’t know why so few people, especially back then a couple of years ago were willing to say that word.”
Note to the clueless Garofalo: This is what you get when you smear millions of hard-working Americans with such highly offensive sexual insults and false charges of racism.
In the same 2009 interview – ironically, also with Keith Olbermann, who at the time was the face of hate at the network of insane liberal hate – she falsely accused the Tea Party of being racist simply because they disagree with Barack Obama.
“This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up,” Garofalo said, according to Newsbusters.
Garofalo, of course, has no proof the Tea Party is racist, but being an unhinged liberal, she doesn’t need any.
Olbermann agreed with Garofalo’s assertion. According to the Daily Caller, he “said it is impossible to imagine any other reason other than racism inspiring the Tea Party and any other suggestions like fiscal issues, health care, etc. were just disguises for the racism.”
In his “mind,” such as it is, disagreement over Obama’s policies that are driving the country to bankruptcy and economic collapse is really racism.
It is becoming impossible these days to imagine a liberal who can make a coherent argument without calling someone a racist.
But it’s easy for Olbermann and Garofalo to call Tea Partiers racists and it requires no thought or reasoning on their part.
This is why one Tea Party activist coined the term “racer” to describe liberals like Olbermann who see racism in everything:
Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard writes Saturday that radio talk show host and Tea Party activist Tony Katz told MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer, “…let’s talk about the racers, the people who believe that everything is a conspiracy about race.”
“It’s Obama’s race that people want to see the birth certificate. It’s Obama’s race that people don’t like the out of control spending. It’s not his race. It’s that he’s awful. The policies are terrible. ObamaCare is a lie and a failure. QE1 and QE2 didn’t work. It’s crazy.”
Garofalo also explained that there is no liberal bias in the media and America has never elected a liberal President. Apparently she thinks Obama is a hardcore conservative, and Jimmy Carter was never elected President.
Then, she asserted that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas suffered from a form of “Stockholm syndrome” because his wife is a white woman:
“Explain that one to me,” she said. “You have an African-American gentleman married to a white woman who is in cahoots with a group that has a lot of racists in it. Is that Stockholm syndrome on his part? What’s going on?”
The Daily Caller reports:
Olbermann offered his theory which was since the Tea Party will often show they’re diverse movement, the fact that they are offering any defense in itself evidence it is a racist movement, which he offered Thomas’ marriage to Virginia Thomas, a Caucasian female as an example.
“Something that does give me pause is –now it may be cynically motivated by monetary concerns on her part, she’ll align herself with whomever it seems prudent to be aligned with, it just would seems like Clarence Thomas at some point would have some type of dark knight of the soul sign and say ‘Wow, I should be insulted by this that my wife is involved with the Tea Party.’”
The Thomas’ have been married for 23 years. Who knew the Tea Party existed in 1987?
But facts are meaningless to liberals like Garofalo, who once claimed that it was Republicans and the media who were at fault for the scandal that erupted over disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner – and not his own actions.
With entertainment like this, the next election will be very interesting no matter who the GOP candidate is. In the meantime, Garofalo should invest in a map so she knows the difference between “up” and “down.”
