I was flipping through channels the other day and found this fledgling channel called MSNBC. I have heard of the channel, but I hear there are no news reporters working at the station, instead they have reporter impersonators. These people take news they hear on other channels and then add their own opinion to the story… I gather because they don’t want to be accused of plagerism, but I don’t know for sure.
In any event the other night there was some obscure actor or mental patient, not sure…named Janeane Garofalo. JG made the comment that everyone who attended Tea Parties were racists. She claimed they all assembled to protest against Obama because he was a black man. According to her these protesters were “a bunch of tea bagging racists”. Of course typical for people of JG’s ilk, she had never actually spoken to any of these people by her own admission, yet somehow she deduced that they were all stereotypical white racists. BRILLIANT isn’t she!!! This alleged woman has no idea who these people are or what they believe… and dammit she doesn’t actually care. Oh that’s right supposedly there was a sign someone had saying something that might be racist… do we even know if this person was part of the protest.
Well I am one of those Tea Party people and in a her broad brush of bigotry she has painted me a racist and through this BLOG I am asking for an apology from JG as I am not now, nor have I ever been a racist. Nor did I see a single remotely racists or controversial sign at the protest I attended. And we all knew why we were there and it has to do with taxation without representation. But it also was an opportunity to expand on the ideas our founders wrote in our Constitution which limited the rights of the Federal Government to specific duties.
Anyway, I have always believed the profound words of MLK about judging my fellow man by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. With MLK’s elogquent words spoken 40 years ago as a guide, JG should sincerely apologize to all of us who attended the Tea Party protests for her bigoted and racist comments. This would be a positive gesture on her part demonstrating she understands the pain and outrage she has caused all of us who attended the protests.
Surprisingly, the woman is not out on a ledge somewhere pondering jumping… as she has clearly lost touch with reality and may be suffering from some form of mental illness. I suspect Jeaneane is happily one of those uninformed liberals who are dillusional and should be ignored, but the problem is the more we ignore her, the more insane she becomes… and I don’t wish her harm.
Anyway, thanks to MSNBC we clearly heard and saw her speak those simpleton remarks about Tea Party attendees suggesting we were protesting a black man being President. Of course the news impersonator didn’t even counter with a question as to how she knew the racial disposition of the protestors.
Ironically, Jeaneane actually reflects the very racist bigoted attitudes she condemns in others… she is a true racist. JG condemned a whole group of people, based almost entirely on skin color as she never attended any protest nor did she ever speak to anyone who attended the protest. She simply assumed that because the majority of the attendees were white, that we were racists and bigots. Judging a person by their color is the epitome of racism… therefore I will say again JG should apologize to all of us for her racist comments.
And I would like to persnally say to JG that: “You are bigoted towards white people”. “You natrually assume that simply because I am white, I dislike blacks.” So you Maam are a racist. You descriminate against simply because of their skin color.
It strikes me as surreal, that in the post-racial United States as evidenced by the election of Obama, white’s have become the new target of racism. I feel whites are under constant attack simply for the color of our skin, rather than content of their character.
Jeaneanne, you have much to learn about white people. We are not all stereotypical racists… and I would ask that you actually talk to people within the movement before you condemn an entire group as racists. As it stands Jeaneanne, your outrageous comments about the protestors who attended Tea Parties earns you the label of just another uninformed racist bigot.
