By The Right Scoop


Here is a compilation video from 2 different occasions when Janeane Garofalo was on Countdown with Keith Olbercrackhead.  Also, for other responses to Garofalo recent comments, go to Hotair.com.

Enjoy.



Update: I listened to Unusable Signal tonight with John Zeigler and Tommy Christopher talking about John’s recent “arrest” at USC.  What a show.  I was pleased, however, to hear that Christopher feels that Garofalo is over the top with her latest characterizations of the Tea Parties. Admittedly, I also enjoyed the fact that several on the show felt that Keith Olbermann is doing less good for the liberal movement now than he used too (if he ever did…but I’ll let that one go.)

Update: Vimeo removed my account for uploading stuff off TV.  Oh wells.  I’ve replaced it with my Youtube version. We’ll see how long that lasts.

Update: It’s interesting to go look at some of the sites that either link back here or have the video from Youtube.  I thought this one was quite interesting.

    Back when she was just an actress I thought she was attractive… now she’s just another brainless liberal struggling to feel an unearned sense of superiority over someone else. Liberals always have and always will make the best racists.

    I can never get over the contrast between that smug sense of superiority and the idiotry that comes out of their mouth’s.

    That’s right up there with her proclaiming a half-million dead US solders in two weeks just prior to the 2003 Iraq invasion. Still waiting on her to eat that crow she promised. . .

    Seven years later, more troops as a percentage died in Germany and on US posts then on combat duty in Iraq. Ten times more people as a percentage of pop are murdered in Chicago then in Iraq – and more people choke to death on PEANUT BUTTER in 18 months in the US then have died in seven years in Iraq! God Bless each one of them, but come on, when are we going to declare Chicago LOST and pull out!

    I particularly enjoyed her “racial” theories on the brain function of conservatives. Of course, if you simply diagnose all conservatives as being pathological, it absolves you of the need to come up with any honest intellectual response to their points. Which, no doubt, is why Garofalo does it. A “racist,” as the old saying goes, is a conservative who is winning an argument with a liberal.

    I remember when I actually thought she was fairly likable. She was humorous on occasion when her comedy was about relationships and she played the self-effacing, “I am SO neurotic” part. And she wasn’t TERRIBLE in that crappy superhero movie w/ Ben Stiller and Paul “Pee Wee” Ruebens.

    Garofola, or GAR! as I like to call her now, must have gone through some type of “purification” a few years ago when she shed the last vestiges of her humanity and reason. She went through a “cleansing” ritual where she purged the remaining traces of common sense and rational thought.

    Why the purge? Obviously, it was the price that Olberturd and his ilk demanded for admittance into the Cult of Progressiveness.

    Sad. And, I am sorry to say, there is no deprogramming for this affliction. Therefore, the only approach to GAR! and Olberturd is to ignore them. Garofo-who?

    Obviously she has absolutely no idea what she is talking about. I guess all the black people in the crowds hate the black man in the Whitehouse. I wonder what she could tell us about the brains of people that are racist against their own race? I bet she thinks they have Uncle Tom syndrome. Let’s be real here. Are we to seriously believe that anyone with at least a few brain cells even listens to this woman. You would have to be a complete moron to take anything but what she reads from a script someone else has written seriously. This is just another example of how working in the movie industry destroys brain cells. They are so used to taking direction and told what to say that they cannot have any reasonable independent thought.

Would that last sentence qualify as a full one?? Have I matured sufficiently to support the real middle??
    For the long run, playing the race card in the middle of what should have been a comparatively disassociated dicussion of fundamental economics was quite below her. Most of us should be sure she’s better than that. She must have chosen otherwise.

  • You Missed The Point

    First of all, these two clips are not even about the same thing.

    If you wanted to show her being hypocritical, she would have needed to be saying that she doesn’t support the right of the TEA party movement to even HAVE the TEA parties, which she doesn’t do.

    What she does do, is comment on the content of the demonstrations in one clip (the most recent) and she is talking about the over all idea of not allowing dissent in the first.

    She does not say “this is unamerican” or “they should not be allowed to do this” which was her point in the first clip where people were being demonized for even bother ing to utter an anti-Iraq war comment.

    She is just making fun of them, because, you know the TEA parties were stupid and she is right, look at the montages of the photos from *many* different parties around the US and there some straight up racist comments on some of the signs.

    So despite the heavy-handed editing job, you picked two different points to weld together.

    I give it a C- and it represents the same level of understanding as the TEA parties did.

    Hey Robert, lay off Paula Poundstone. I went to see her live in Hollywood last summer and she put on one of the best, cleanest, and funniest stand-up shows I’ve ever seen. There wasn’t a partisan note or gratuitous liberal head-nod in the whole thing and I ended up with a very high opinion of the lady. Don’t even try to lump her in with this creepy Garofalo character.

    And yeah, I understand you were only saying that Poundstone has some masculine qualities, which is true. But they’re not there to make her seem smarter, as you charge, whereas with Garofalo, I agree with you: it’s all deliberate and phony.

    It strikes me that Ms. Garofouledup’s physical appearance these days simply matches the less attractive aspects of what’s inside that head of hers–nasty thoughts and 32 inches of vacuum between the ears.

    And yes, she was not bad looking back in the day–but those days are long ago and, in her case, far away.

    She was correct in pointing out the overtly racist message delivered by *some* attendees of the TEA Parties (not all), based on the signs that they carried saying the future was “White slavery” for americans. She did this since the signs could be visually, you know, seen being carried by people at the rallies.

    If you are defending racism, well, then we will have to agree that there is no common ground between us.

    All I read here is comments making fun of her physical appearence. It is this kind of cunning political thought that has left the GOP where it is. No ability to talk about substantive issues, just make fun of how people talk. Genius.

    Nowhere in the video clip that I watched did she say that the tea partyers do not have the right to do what they did, call for this to stop, be banned, or that it is unpatriotic or should not be allowed to continue. She did label attendees as racists based on visual evidence. Again, she didnt say they don’t have these rights.

    She does not even call the acts “dissent” in anyway what-so-ever, she just mocks the content of the message, not the right to deliver the message or believe in it.

    And not to belabor the point, in the first video, she is voicing concern that when people were speaking about the war, they WERE being told that dissenting is unamerican and that they can’t do that.

    And technically the TEA parties are dissent – when only 250,000 people in a nation of lets say, what, 100 Million eligable voters turn out to protest something, it is a extreme minority and thus, is dissent. It is of course, perfectly legal, constitutionaly upheld, and legitamite dissent, but it is “express(ing) opposition through action or words” and that is techincally dissent. Ms. Garaffalo I doubt would have any problem with that. Dissent is not illegal. Treason, is illegal, but dissent is not treason.

    BUT – the right to dissent is not the right to not-be-made-fun-of. She was doing the latter, not saying TEA partiers don’t have the right to do the gather and protest at will. She knows they do. Her point in the first video was the opposite, people were telling her and her co-minded they don’t have the right to say they disaggree with the war. Of course they did then, just like the TEA partiers do.

    Maybe it is too subtle a point for the deep thinkers here to pick up on.

    So – she was not mocking the right to do it, just mocking (and in my opionion and frankly after the dust has settled, most of the US thinks the same way) the content of the meetings.

    stilldon’t get it – your name says it all. You left wingers got exactly what you wanted. You got a tax and spend government that is going to sell this country off to the highest bidder. I, just like most rebublicans, have no problem with our current President’s color of skin. I would rather have seen Colin Powell in the White House, but oh well.

    No-one cares about the color of this President’s skin. That is simply the only stump that you fecal matter craniums seem to be able to attach to us. I have yet to hear a liberal say that they like that he and his co-horts are spending all our money.

    Let’s look at this another way. Do you recall the protests in London last month? The people that broke through the windows and looted items from those banks were leftist liberals. Does that make all of the people there protesting idiots? No it doesn’t. The few do not speak for the rest. You can’t make a blanket statement that we are all racists due to one idiot with a sign.

    Oh by the way – Dr. Martin Luther King was a republican.

    It has been said (no, I don’t know by whom, but I know I am not the first one capable of creating such an apt metaphor…let us not allow this triviality to deter us) that solid logic is like pure clear water. Now when a long-time victim of syphilis sees water they are struck by a case of the howling fits. They shake and tremble with fear and paranoia. Perhaps this is what happened when Ms Garofalo learned of the tea parties against bigger government. Let us hope she seeks effective treatment.

    Janeane Garofalo is a RACIST HYPOCRITE. She is the one bringing up the presidents skin colour. She obviously can’t get past his skin colour.. JANEANE, THE RACIST. That’s the problem with left wing extremists. They always have to bring up different races instead of just the HUMAN RACE.

    Look, you seem to be ignoring the idea that she didn’t just speak of those people who had signs, but she painted the entire movement with one big racist brush. Go watch the entire video and see for yourself.

    Also, it isn’t credible anyone to paint an entire movement based a on a few people or signs. Any black person there has Stockholm syndrome and any white person there is a racist. That’s what she said. Quit trying to spin this to defend her. Either you agree with her or you don’t.

    From the images I have seen, there was clearly a rasict tone to the events. That theme was present in multiple locations with multiple signs that were clearly race-based commentaries on our president.

    She called it like she saw it, and there seems to be enough visual evidence to back up her assesment.

    It is unfortunate that the movement appeals to people like that, but it appears to be a place where they are welcomed and can voice their opinions, which of course are legal (up to the point of inciting violence of course).

    Obviously this will be a challenge for any continued momentum for this movement, how to not attract that element, or make sure there is enough of a positive message that people take the real intended message away from the event, and not just see the racist elements.

    I dont think whatever the intended message was made it through the bigotry, neither does she, and neither do a lot of other Americans. People have seen the extremist elements and now the movement is probably permanently tarnished by those carrying that message.

    That compilation was fail, in that it did nothing to mesh with the introduction.

    She never said the teabaggers didn’t have the right to speak out or that they should be stopped from doing so. She just said they were largely motivated by racism. That’s certainly a point you could argue against, but impugning ugly motives to her political enemies in no way contradicted her 2003 remarks.

    Perhaps this blog post’s point was valid when looking at the full body of her remarks, but from the short snipped bits presented here the initial argument was fairly incoherent.
