Who You Calling Racist, Racist?

Friday, August 19, AD 2011

By now roughly 20 times more people have seen the clip below than when it originally aired on the Keith Olbermann Show.  Yes, Keith Olbermann has a show again.  It runs on a channel called Current TV.  It’s basically a cable access channel gone national.  Keith had political philosopher Janeane Garofalo on his show to discuss the Tea Party movement, and she uttered these sage remarks about Herman Cain.

For those of you who don’t feel like watching the clip, here’s a transcript of the relevant portion.

Garofalo also said successful businessman Herman Cain is either being paid to run or is suffering from Stockholm syndrome because he is a “person of color” running as a Republican in the party’s presidential primary.

  • To many people on the Left it is an article of faith that racial minorities cannot be conservative, which would be news to Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Congressmen West and Scott, etc. They explain the existence of black conservatives using the type of psychobabble that Garafolo spewed. Just another example that whatever reality much of “the reality based community” is tuned into, it is not the one the rest of us occupy.

  • God willing, virtuous men and women like Col. West, Associate Justice Thomas, Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, et al will lead black America out of democrat dependency and desperation.

    Recently, terrorist sympathizers at CAIR “called out” Congressman West for associating with certain Americans that oppose terror. His written, one-word response was: “NUTS!” Of course, the idiot progressives (I repeat myself) didn’t get it.

  • One wonders if Obama himself might not be racially suicidal given that abortions disproportionately affect persons of color, and Obama is a person of color.

    One also wonders why those who voted for Obama only because of the color of his skin are not themselves racist.

    Indeed, it’s not the accident of birth into a specific race or culture, or the pigment of the skin that counts, but the color of one’s heart. As Matthew 15:10-19 state:

    When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, “Hear and understand: Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” Then His disciples came and said to Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?” But He answered and said, “Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.” Then Peter answered and said to Him, “Explain this parable to us.” So Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.”

  • I particularly like hearing Keith Olbermann talking about “delusions of grandeur” as if he wasn’t the poster child for such things.

  • So, Michael, Olbermann’s “delusions of grandeur” remark could be paraphrased thusly:

    Pot: “Hello, Kettle. You’re black.”

    … Or would that be racist, too?

  • Olbermann’s best gig was doing SportsCenter on ESPN at 1 in the morning when no one was watching. Amazingly, MSNBC gave this bonehead a $30 million, 4-year contract. Of course, no one of any intelligence watches that network much less Current TV. Garofalo’s so desperate for face time she’s a regular on Maher’s HBO show, another sources of enlightenment for the leftist loons.

  • Yawn! She would be more relevant if she said that Christianity is the reason why we have blacks like Herman Caine and women like Sarah Palin and Bachmann running under a conservative ticket. “Afterall” ,she would follow, “such a religion baits people into believing that a moral code is necessary to be live in this world.”

Janeane Garofalo Is Our Intellectual Superior

Wednesday, June 30, AD 2010

She continues to invited on MSNBC and network morning shows spouting out words of wisdom when asked her opinions on important topics of the day.

But why is she constantly being invited back when she’s not even a political pundit nor works in politics for that matter?

No problem, she now offers us what she knows about Christianity.

We are all better for it.

In fact, I feel that after being exposed to this intellectual superior, I’ve regressed enough to begin enjoying her comedy bits!

  • Why does she keep saying “six and a half”?

  • “But why is she constantly being invited back when she’s not even a political pundit nor works in politics for that matter?”

    Because many in the media think just like her.

  • She meant to say “Six Of One, A Half Dozen Of The Other” which means they are the same thing …

  • I remember back in the mid-90s I quite liked her handle playing quirky, ironic and self-aware characters.

    Now, she’s just sad. Look and learn, kids, look and learn.

  • I think that most people under the age of 35 would know who this woman is. Her acting career has long since passed her by. At least she has her stunning intellect, good cheer and good looks to keep her warm at night. May God bless this poor, bitter woman and may we all see our poverty, and bitterness through her saddening display and ask God for deliverance from these crosses.

  • I meant people under 35 would NOT know who she is…

  • Regarding the title of this article: the truth hurts, doesn’t it?

  • It certainly made me laugh when I read it.

  • Amazing! This woman is more enlightened than Francis Bacon, Galileo, Issac Newton, Albert Einstein… more inspirational than Johann Bach, Shakespeare, Handel… more eminent than Washington, Adams, Lincoln… and more virtuous than Francis of Assisi, Amy Carmichael, Mother Theresa…

    All such puerile souls, tsk, tsk, believing in a Creator, Savior, and a Book of Truth.

    Can we clone her?
