For those of you who keep up with the left's obsession with race warfare, you'll recall the blissfully ignorant words of one of Hollywood's "finest," former comedian Janeane Garofalo. In an interview on Keith Olbermann's talk show, she brilliantly demonstrates how leftist doctrine obscures reality, and shows how racist the ideals of modern liberalism really are. In the interview, Garofalo said that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is "being paid to run" and is "a stooge for racists"(among other equally ignorant things). (Real Clear Politics)
That level of clueless drivel displays business as usual among the leftist elite whose objectivity has been skewed by what Andrew Breibart calls the Democrat-Media Complex. (See Breitbart's book, Righteous Indignation.) Not everyone on the left are as radically unhinged as Garofalo, yet such statements as hers belie the leftist narrative that professes to be guardians of race, civil liberty, and freedom within the US.
Take a look at Herman Cain's response. Here's a man who understands the damages that the left does through such reckless, elitist, racist, ignorant statements as Garofalo's.
