Janeane Garofalo: “Herman Cain Lets Republicans Say Look We Have a Black Man”

janeane garafaloDid you see Janeane Garofalo’s last movie?  Did you even know she was in one?  Yeah… me neither.  I guess that’s why she’s trying to resurrect her career by shooting for the title of Hollywood’s biggest race-baiter.  Here she is for her latest installment of “Republicans are racists” with Keith Olberamnn on Al Gore network that no one would know or hear about if it weren’t for race-baiting liberal nonsense like this.

Hmmm?  Wonder why they always seem to make these sort of claims over there?

“People like Karl Rove liked to keep the racism very covert. And so Herman Cain provides this great opportunity say you can say ‘Look, this is not a racist, anti-immigrant, anti-female, anti-gay movement. Look we have a black man.’”

    How exactly does she get Rove and Cain into one sentance. They have nothing to do with each other. I have this feeling that Mr. Cain isn’t likely to surround himself with people like Rove.

    Nothing against Rove, but I just don’t see those two involved with each other.

    The queen of self mutilation is an obvious disturbance in the force. Garofalo is irrelevant and a pathetic testament to the not to be taken seriously brain dead left….WM

    Interesting commentary I must say. It seems to me that your assertion that Cain is brainwashed and “brain dead” is itself racist insofar as it asserts that an African American man (Cain) is not too smart. Hmmm, are you saying a “black” man is not too smart, and in fact Brain dead? and what about all those victims of brain injuries now on life support? WOW! How insensitive can one man be to use such a term.

    Democrats have legacies such as the late senator Robert Carlyle Byrd who was himself a Klansman. Oh yes, he was also a devout Democrat as well, but I’m sure he was really a closet republican……………..right? He fought against the 1964 Civil Rights act, and supposedly denounced the Klan, yet he still got a wink and a pass, along with deafening silence from civil rights groups. Had he been a Republican, he’d have been tarred and feathered. In his own words……..

    “I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side … Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds. ”

    — Robert C. Byrd, in a letter to Sen. Theodore Bilbo (D-MS), 1944,

    Oh, and lest we forget his immortal words, that got him little more than slap on the wrist…………

    “They’re much, much better than they’ve ever been in my lifetime … I think we talk about race too much. I think those problems are largely behind us … I just think we talk so much about it that we help to create somewhat of an illusion. I think we try to have good will. My old mom told me, ‘Robert, you can’t go to heaven if you hate anybody.’ We practice that. There are white niggers. I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time, if you want to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I’d just as soon quit talking about it so much.”

    Though this is not in perfect chronological order, what about that great non-racist Democrat, Franklin D. Roosevelt? Seems to me he signed presidential Executive Orders 9066 and 9102 during WW II which placed over 120,000 Japanese Americans in concentration camps for the duration of the war. Naaaa, that wasn’t racist, he was just looking out for the common good. He even hinted that Italian, and German Americans might share the same fate, yet at that time (1943) he said there were no immediate plans. I just love what he said about Italians, however,

    “I don’t care so much about the Italians, they are a lot of opera singers, but the Germans are different. They may be dangerous.” (Tintori, Guido, “New Discoveries, Old Prejudices: The Internment of Italian Americans during World War II”, published in Lawrence Di Stasi, ed, in Una Storia Segreta: The Secret History of Italian American Evacuation and Internment during World War II, Heyday Books, Berkley, 2001, pp. 236-254.)

    I’d also like to know what you think about FDR’s court appointments of two infamous segregationists, Jimmy Byrnes (South Carolina), and Senator Hugo Black (Alabama). Black was a member of the Alabama Ku Klux Klan. FDR eventually made Byrnes a top advise who earned the nick name, “assistant President.”

    Then there is the racist Democrat Senator Ernest Hollings, who fought brutally against lunch counter integration in the 1960s. In 1960, Republican President, Dwight D. Eisenhower demanded that Blacks have full rights to protest against the inhumane, unfair treatment they were receiving at the hands of southern white racists. Hollings retorted that Eisenhower had caused “great damage to peace and good order” in his support for blacks to protest at lunch counters. If you do your homework on this guy, you’ll see he has a very colorful history of racist positions and comments. A dedicated Democrat nonetheless.

    How can we forget that great Democrat, anti-racist Jesse Jackson and his anti-Semitic comments about Jews in “Hymietown.”

    And moving right along we encounter Missouri Democratic Representative Dick Gephardt, and his 1999 endorsement from a white supremacist group.

    Former Clinton Drug Czar, and mayor of Houston, TX got into a little game of race baiting against an Hispanic mayoral opponent.

    Former Democrat State Representative Billy McKinney of Georgia publicly blamed the Jews for his daughter’s failed attempt at re-election in 2002.

    Shall I continue, or sign off by saying, which party has a history of racism

    Oh, almost forgot to mention Al Gore’s democratic Senator daddy, Al Gore Sr. who voted more than once against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    Janeane, Andrew Breitbart can kiss mine.
    I hope you read this. I know there is a sensitive soul behind your sharp wit. My only wish is that you would stop diminishing your own talents and accomplishments. You are my favorite female stand up comedian of all time. You are a great actress, even though I have heard you put it down in interviews. You never acknowledge how talented you are. You don’t have to boast, but please just say thank you when you get compliments. You deserve them. You are bright and insightful and one of the few who can make me laugh with tears streaming down my face. The politics of today will pass. You inspire more people than you ever know. I never write fan mail, but I felt compelled to write this.
