Are You A Racist??

Evidently I am a racist according to that great prognosticator, Janeane Garofalo.   On the hardly watched Keith Olbermann Show on MSNBC, here is what she opined about all of us that attended a Tax Day Tea Party event.

I agree with my friends at The Great Illuminator – keep spewing this crazy talk. This is actually good for the cause and will incite more people to get involved. I can’t wait until the 2010 election. What a slaughter this will be. Should be good fun.

As a parting shot, Lou Dobbs had something to say about the waste of good breathable air (Ms. Garafalo).

Right on Lou! It is good that Ms. Garafalo is sent to the far reaches of the media like MSNBC and Air America. No one actually watches or listens to these programs, they just quote them in blogs.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Here’s a great link to an awesome website that refers to this exact story: http://theblacksphere.blogspot.com/2009/04/racist-garofalo-to-rescue.html.  Enjoy!

Tea Baggers Unite!

I ran across this video and just had to post it.  David Shuster from MSNBC decided to refer to the Tax Day Protests as “Teabaggers”.   Hmmm…I was at the last event in St. Louis and didn’t see any Teabagging going on. (those of you who don’t know what this slang term means, click here)

And yet another video with Stuart Varney giving the business to a left-wing liberal writer

The idea that this is a “vast right wing conspiracy” is more than ridiculous.  The main website for all of these Tea Party protests is www.taxdayteaparty.com.  This site was registered in February 2009, not before the election as the left-wing liberal writer asserts.  This is a true grass roots movement started by normal individuals and attended by normal individuals (OK, I’m not that normal). 

Thousands of events are being held all over the country – many of them today (Tax Day).  I would encourage all of you who are able to attend one of these events.  I’ll be at the one in St. Louis in Kiener Plaza and this one was probably the largest in the US last time. 

This is not an Obama thing, it’s a freedom thing.  Find an event in your area and show the country that you are tired of the high taxes and wasteful spending going on in our country. 

Of course, that’s just my opinion.
