At a forum last Thursday night in Newyork City. Actor Josh Hartnett and Actress Janeane Garofalo discussed the future of the Democratic Party and the role young people will play with Party Members and activists.
During the televised discussion/debate Janeane Garofalo exposed the Republican Party base for what it really is.
Dumb and Mean.
The following segment of her speech was featured on the Television Show Scarborough Country hosted by none other than former House Represenative and Intern Killer Joe Scarborough, who spends the entire program pretending he has his own country where everyone is as stupid as he is.
Below are Janeane's remarks...
"The Republican Party, their message and their policies of exclusion and the tilted playing field appeals to the dumb and the mean. There is no shortage of dumb and mean people in this culture. So, therefore, their message, the dumb and the mean find a nice home in the GOP.
This dumbing down and this pseudo patriotism, which is very conveniently partisan, because the dumb and the mean love patriotism. Now the dumb believe unto patriotism because itís really-when itís as unexamined as it is for the dumb, itís merely narcissism. Yeah, itís my country right or wrong. Well what of these colors donít run? What do you mean? I donít know. They use the word evildoer with a straight face, knee jerk reactionary phrases that go down well from the Republican Party with the dumb and the mean and then the mean pretend that itís unpatriotic to be critical of your government.
You donít let the facts get in the way of your arrogance and belligerence. You just keep saying no, it doesnít or you just lie about everything. What you have now is people that are closet racists, misogamists, homophobes and people who love tilted playing fields and the politics of exclusion identifying as conservative. They have hijacked that name and somehow they are proud of it. I donít understand that, why theyíre proud of being conservative but that is-seems to be the case. There is no liberal media.
If there was a liberal media that would be good and our culture would reflect it. We can no longer tolerate anti-intellectualism. We can no longer tolerate liberal bashing and we can no longer tolerate the politics of the dumb and the mean. Thank you."
