Jeanane Garofalo has got to be one miserable, unhappy person. I'm no psychologist by any means, but this woman is a bag of angry, venomous hatred. The things she says are beyond vile, in my opinion.
Jeff Poor, writing at Newsbusters, reports on Garafalo's appearance Friday at an event in which she blasts Tea Party protesters as "functionally retarded adults..." and "racists." She goes on to explain that whenver a protester says "I want my country back" what "they're really saying is, ‘I want my white guy back.' They apparently had no problem at all for the last eight years of habeas corpus being suspended, the Constitution being [expletive] on, illegal surveillance, lied to on a war or two, two stolen elections - yes, the John Kerry one was stolen too."
It's not even worth it to go through that and dissemble her jibberish.
The media isn't safe from her attacks either. She blames the media for not reporting on the stolen election of Bush and of Kerry.
The media lifted up her guy pretty well in 2008 though; no word on that from her.
I'll say this to Miss Garafalo: I don't care what color the president is, or what race he is; if he's attempting to bring socialism to my country or to enact policies with which I disagree, it's my Constitutional right to speak out just as it is yours to denegrate me for it. Free speech. That does not make me racist.
In fact, now I'm even sorry I've perpetuated her gibberish any further except that I think people like this ought to be exposed for the venom they spew. It makes me long for the old days of Hollywood when working actors and actresses were under contract to studios and had to mind their P's and Q's before they spoke out in public. I know, that's counter to free speech. But in Garafalo's case...
Well. Let's just say I don't think I'll be supporting any of her artistic endeavors.
