In April 2009, Janeane Garofalo said of the tea party movement: "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. That is racism. Straight up. This is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks."
Other than the fact that Garofalo must have worked long and hard to be this dim and boorish, is the fact that the leftist media embraces her and equates what she says to mountainside inscriptions.
So, if you are sick and tired about Congress as a collective group and the un-American, unconstitutional, maniacal agenda of the current president, you are a racist who hates "a black man in the White House." Very well, Ms. Garofalo, are you prepared to apply that logic (ha-ha) across the board?
New York's governor for the moment is a black man who is legally blind. Due to low approval ratings and pressure from New York Democrats, he announced that he will not run in 2010. Speculation is that he will resign amid scandal after corrupt scandal, and make no mistake, Gov. David Paterson is an honor student compared to President Obama.
What will Ms. Garofalo say about New York Democrats? Will she say that "they" hate a blind black man in the governor's mansion?
Obama has more than earned his scrutiny, and perhaps Paterson has earned a little bit. For Garofalo, et.al. to fire inane vitriol with both barrels about those who support freedom and patriotism, and then to simply watch her beloved party's New York chapter gang up on a blind man without comment, is pathetic - if indeed she and they believe a small amount of the propaganda they march to.
