More Hate From The Left Posted 2009-04-22
Speaking on MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olberman” the other day, comedienne Janeane Garofalo unbosomed herself of an Orwellian “Two Minutes Hate” against Americans who participated in the nationwide Tea Party on April 15. They are, said she, racists:My response:“It’s 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. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up.”The evidence for this calumny is, of course, lacking, which is why it is a calumny.
Continuing the defamation, the erstwhile psycho-neurologist said conservatives, unlike “reasonable” people, are congenitally deranged because their “limbic brain” is too large. Undoubtedly, Ms. Garofalo means “reasonable” like herself or Weathermen terrorist Bill Ayers, but in any event, she added that because most of the protestors were white racists, any blacks who participated suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, whereby a kidnap victim sympathizes with his captors.
Add Ms. Garofalo’s ad hominem attack to last week’s campus shout-down of a former congressman at the University of North Carolina, and you see the genuine left for what it is: nasty, intolerant and totalitarian to its core.
RE: More Hate From The Left
These two silly editorials (including yesterday's screed about UNC campus looneys) are just too funny. Complaining about an entertainer being outlandish and over the top? This is amazing! Who does the EdiPublican think this is, Rush Limbaugh? I know for sure now that Mr. Editogus has surely acknowledged the "Boss as his Leader. He thinks Garofalo is the leader of the Democratic Party???? To be taken seriously???? ROFL!
Whining about old 60's radicals? Calling us names is he? Well I think he's just "One Toke Over the Line," off the deep end, irrelevant, old, washed up, tired, and still fighting the battles of the 60's. Does this sad sack understand that comedians, radio talk show hosts, and even pundits are SUPPOSED to say and write outlandish things! They are the court jesters, the "truth sayers" (Yes, even Rush speaks "truthfully" for ditto heads, racists, and homophobes everywhere.)
It's taking it all so seriously that ends up being so silly! Refusal to acknowledge the lack of sane leadership and the total abandonment of the Republican Party and the "conservative movement" to its most extreme elements, leads to poignant, pouty, pitiful, prose like this.
Since this piece was predicated on the Tancredo presentation at UNC... (the unamed congressman in the Op-Ed) I'll just post this here, not to defend one group of radicals over the other, but to simply suggest that the EdiRadical is an extremist railing against extremists. It's boring, its irrelevant, it's whining, and much more like an attempt at wingnut propaganda than journalism.
Now, about Tancredo.... Yup the source is from that bastion of Liberal Righteousness, the Rolling Stone. All Hail Rock and Roll!!
Tom Tancredo - "the undisputed king of Republican Bigotry" supported by Gordon Baum, head of the Council for Conservative Citizens, a "pro-white" group that lauds Tancredo for protecting America from a "full-scale invasion" of Latin immigrants.
"Elected to the House in 1998, Tancredo has not only led the fight to deport every undocumented worker in America -- a proposal that would cost at least $200 billion -- but has called for halting all immigration, legal and otherwise. In one unforgettable move, Tancredo wanted to deport the family of an undocumented high school boy who was profiled in The Denver Post for his perfect grades.
The grandson of Italian immigrants, Tancredo traces his interest in politics to the eighth grade, when he played Fidel Castro in a class assignment. He urges America to reject "the siren song of multiculturalism" and depicts Islam as "a civilization bent on destroying ours." In September, when Pope Benedict XVI sparked riots by condemning Islam as "evil," Tancredo urged him not to apologize. Even the right has noted his unbridled looniness on the subject: In July, when Tancredo proposed that America respond to any future terrorist attack by bombing Mecca and other holy sites, the National Review came to an unavoidable conclusion: "Tom Tancredo is an idiot."
....and an extremist and GREAT bait for anyone who cares about humane treatment of immigrants, civil and human rights and of course campus radicals of every stripe.
Mr. Ediwhiner, puhleezz stop doing this:
"you see the genuine left for what it is: nasty, intolerant and totalitarian to its core."
"What happened at UNC is what normal, patriotic Americans, particularly conservatives who try to express themselves, are up against: raw hatred, intolerance and violence."
You are describing yourself.... you see... it makes perfect sense this way too:
"you see the genuine right for what it is: nasty, intolerant and totalitarian to its core."
"What happened at UNC is what normal, patriotic Americans, particularly liberals who try to express themselves, are up against: raw hatred, intolerance and violence."
Go to your room.
