Garofalo Echos Liberal Talking Down Points, Fallacies: TEA Protesters Stupid "Racists", Limbaugh Snub That Wasn't

Ya, I know this story is a few days old, but I've been avoiding it because I didn't want to give Janeane Garofalo the satisfaction, but it has blown up, probably rightfully so. Now, I'm forced to respond.

Thursday was a big day for Janeane. First, she had an interview with the "Village Voice" where she took a shot at Limbaugh. Then, she was on the Olbermann's show calling those that attended the TEA parties everything but a child of God.

Let's start with the fabrication that was the Village interview. While she was answering questions about how she can stand to be on a show that is run by a "right wing nutjob", she threw in a jab at Limbaugh and threw one at Lynne Cheney just for kicks:

Now, having said that, when Rush Limbaugh visited the set, and when Lynne Cheney visited the set, I refused to have my picture taken with them or meet them or anything. I didn't want to make a scene out of it and not even go meet them in front of people. When somebody came to me privately and said 'do you want to meet them', I said absolutely not. But I would never have made a big show of it and embarrassed people who worked there. Not that they were interested in meeting me. And, to tell you the truth, I doubt that Lynne Cheney even knew who I was...

However, Limbaugh came out later that day and said:

"The last time I visited the set of "24," [Ms.] Garofalo had not been hired to appear in the series. She was not there, she was not a member of the cast the last time I visited. I wouldn't have wanted to meet her anyway.

"The last time I visited the set, Kim Raver was still in the cast and CTU was the primary 'location' of the show. This current season, seven, has been in the can since last summer or fall and I have been nowhere near the "24" set for any shoots for this season, which is this lunatic's [Ms. Garofalo's] first season,"

As Garofalo demonstrated nicely, liberals will often lie just to take a shot at the right.

As a side note example of her lunatic thought process, she said that Al Franken was "qualified" to be senator. That had me busting a gut.

Now, on to the Olbermann interview. Janeane topped the whoppers that she told in the Village interview with some tall tales that makes her last bit of fiction look like a little white lie. She berates the people who went to the "tea parties" to protest over-taxation and out of control government spending:

You know, there's nothing more interesting than seeing a bunch of racists become confused and angry at a speech they're not quite certain what he's saying. It sounds right and then it doesn't make sense. Which, let's be very honest about what this is about. 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. That is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. And there is no way around that.

So, according to Ms. Garafalo, we're not only stupid but also racists. What proof does she have that they're all stupid white power racists?

None, zip, zero, zilch.

She never gives any proof just accusations. There wasn't one racist comment made by a speaker at one of the hundreds of rallies. There were no signs that used racial slurs. The only ones that were over the that had Obama linked to Hitler, but those were very few. The great majority didn't come close the offensiveness that the lefty protesters leveled at Bush. There were anti-Bush signs that linked Bush to Hitler and the Devil at the same time.

She followed the liberal way of thinking that if you disagree with someone of another race, you must be a racist. That kind of logic is illogical and groundless.

She went on to echo another favorite talking down point the left loves to throw at the right. She said that all conservatives have a neurological problem.

She, also, she misrepresented the attendance at the protests. She said that there were "literally tens of people" at the "parties". I think Janeane needs to retake 2nd grade math. There were around 300,000 people at the events nationwide.
