The only reason anyone pays any attention to the D List actress Janeane Garofalo is that she’s constantly coming up with the most outlandish things to say about anyone who is Republican, conservative, or connected to the Tea Party. She’s been at it again. She told Keith Olbermann (another washed up has-been) that Herman Cain is just a plant, probably paid by the Koch brothers or Karl Rove, to deflect the racism of the GOP. She went on to say he’s similar to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and other black conservatives, who she claims suffer from Stockholm Syndrome.
“There may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome, because anytime I see a person of color or a female in the Republican Party or the conservative movement or the tea party, I wonder how they could be trying to curry favor with the oppressors? Is it Stockholm syndrome or does somebody pay them?”
Of course, she failed to offer any evidence of conservative oppression of minorities and women. She also failed to note that under President Obama, black unemployment is up to over 17%. Talk about oppression!
If you can stand watching the whole clip, you’ll also be treated to an attack on Frank Luntz, and the two of them mocking Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry. I’m sure they’re quite impressed with themselves and their delusional political conspiracy theories. But it’s funny, all they’ve really done is expose that they are the true racists for believing people who happen to have dark skin would have minds of their own and think and vote differently than the Democrat Party dictates.
