Tolerance on the left

Wow. I have to say that I'm not sure what this so-called actress has played a part in. I've never heard of her, but then I don't watch much in the way of TV and I don't read magazines devoted to Hollywood types. She does seem to fit the classic profile of a lefty - a chip on her shoulder and a dislike for everyone that isn't rich enough to buy their way into her circle. Based on her comments I will hazard a guess that she has more personal knowledge of hate than anyone that participated in any of the tea parties and she sounds like she needs to make another appointment to go back and see her therapist again. I wonder what she thinks the Boston Tea Party was about, but asking a question like that might "tax" her abilities.

One thing to think about - when was the last time you heard lefties protest anything where nobody was arrested and nothing was burned or vandalized?

Here is the link to a tolerant leftist.

Liberal actress says tea parties were racist

Liberal actress and political activist Janeane Garofalo, in all seriousness, said activists who attended tea parties are racists with dysfunctional brains in a recent prime-time television appearance.

"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," she said on MSNBC's "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann Thursday evening. "This is racism straight up and is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. There is no way around that."

Olbermann did not once try to challenge her on those assertions.

The actress went on to describe the brain size of typical "right-winger, Republican or conservative or your average white power activist."

"Their synapses are misfiring. ... It is a neurological problem we are dealing with," she said. This isn't the first time she's offered this analysis, either. Ms. Garofalo said similar things about Alaskan GOP Governor Sarah Palin's brain last February in an interview with an environmental blog.

The actress went on to bash the GOP on MSNBC Thursday because it had "crystallized into the white power movement" as well as Fox News, which she said has captured the "Klan demo[graphic]."

"Who else is Fox talking to? Urban older white guys and their girlfriends who suffer from Stockholm Syndrome," she said.

Ironically, Ms. Garofalo is currently playing a role on the drama 24, which is aired by the Fox Broadcasting Company and is popular among conservative circles.

If I said things like that I'd be called a right wing extremist.

If the GOP has "crystallized into the white power movement" somebody really should let Michael Steele know, .... hmmm?

I've liked Garafalo in films in the past, but her current portrayal on 24 is so annoying I keep hoping they'll kill her character off.
