Garofalo is at it Again

Although Janeane Garofalo ranted again on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, the bigger story is that of Grandpa Steve 'Garofalo' ranting at Meal Time with Oscar Mayer:
It's obvious to anybody who has eyes in this country that Progressives, the 9-10ers, these separatist groups that pretend that it's about policy – they are clearly socialistic movements. They're clearly government power movements. What they don't like about the President is that he's American – or half American (applause) – and they, what also is shocking is that people keep pretending that that's not really the case with these people.

I'm not talking about people that do have problems with his pussy-footing, that's fine. But these people, who are also being led by the Nancy Pelosis, the Harry Reids, the Blarney Franks [presumably Barney], whomever, they are no different than any other socialistic movement that's part of our history. This has been going on since the founding of this country that centralized power movements have tried to establish themselves and hold onto power.

It's very weird that whenever this comes up in conversation, so few people are willing to say that yes it is socialism, straight up socialism. And the Democrat Party has been willing to carry water for socialists in this country since about the 1930s. (Applause)

Electorally, these socialist people don't have their own party – maybe they will one day – so they are electorally-dependent on the Democrats. But also troubling, the main stream media is happy to feed into this; Hollywood is happy to feed into this. They will continue to do this til somebody does something.

What you're saying [Rush] is absolutely true, there's this tacit nudging towards violence. Then also, how about showing up armed? What if socialist people showed up armed at a tea party rally? What would be the response of that?

(H.T. Memeorandum.)
