Just when you think the nutcases in MSDNC’s primetime line-up can’t possibly outdo themselves on how low they will stoop to trash conservatives, one of them does. Check out this hate-filled rant (on video) that happened last night between Olby and Hollywood fruitcake Janeane Garofalo (who is, sadly, as we all know, a part of the 24 cast) regarding women and black folks who have, to paraphrase, ‘betrayed their own kind’ by believing in conservative ideals.
Here’s a sneak peek:
JANEANE GAROFALO: She dated him, so either she suffers from Stockholm Syndrome – a lot like Michael Steele, who’s the black guy in the Republican party who suffers from Stockholm Syndrome, which means you try and curry favor with the oppressor.
KEITH OLBERMANN: Yes, you talk about self-loathing.
GAROFALO: Yeah, and there’s, any female or person of color in the Republican party is struggling with Stockholm Syndrome.
Max Twain at the Race42012 blog responds (via Memeo):
Get that? If you are a person of color and you don’t act and think the same way as liberal people of color, then you have a mental disorder. I’m pretty sure suggesting that members of a certain race should all act and think the same way is…umm…RACIST.
Shhh! Don’t tell that to the head honchos at NBC. They’re too busy worrying about whether or not CNBC is being “too mean” to Barack Obama.
Final word, from Matt Lewis:
If you still think liberalism is about diversity of opinion, intellectual discussion, and tolerance, you’re not paying attention.
