A Display Of Liberal Tolerance In Real Time

JANEANE GAROFALO: Well, you know what? It’s because Democrats as people are fundamentally more decent. That’s what makes the Democrats…

JOHN FUND: Oh please!

GAROFALO: That’s absolutely! At this point that is true! If you look at the Republican National Convention just as one example. If you saw the tenor of the speeches at the Republican National Convention and of the delegates it has become a party. And they call themselves Republicans. I don’t call them Republicans or conservatives. They have become a party of small minded, very petty, mean… unrestrained id. The unrestrained id.

SALMAN RUSHDIE (laughing): That’s a slogan!

GAROFALO: And it’s all limbic brain stuff. And it’s all red meat thrown out for the dopes.

FUND: I have a theory.

BILL MAHER: By the way, Sarah Palin actually throws red meat.

FUND: I have a theory that the side that most belittles and most underestimates their opposition in elections generally tends to lose. And I think that you just about stepped into that because saying that one party is fundamentally inherently more decent. Political party is a collection of people seeking power. That’s all it is. And for you to characterize people who vote for one party over the other as being more decent…That’s not real tolerant. I thought you believed in tolerance and diversity. That’s not tolerant.

GAROFALO: First of all there is no evidence to support that the current incarnation of the Republican party, hyphen conservative movement, has any tethering to decency, kindness, tolerance, open-mindedness. What do they stand for? Torture as a policy. They stand for homophobia. They stand for no reproductive justice. They stand for denying global warming.

FUND: So what should we do? Jail them?

GAROFALO: That would be great!

And if Republicans regain power, Janeane…?

    Machine – I’ve said the same thing. I keep waiting for the camps in the desert that Republicans supposedly built to imprison all the liberals under the evil power of the Patriot Act. I’m waiting for all the fascist actions to take place since we keep getting told if you’re conservative you’re a fascist. Has the president nationalized businesses? Deported entire groups of people? Shut down the congress? Disbanned the senate? Passed laws saying any political criticism is dissent and therefore illegal?

    I’ve grown weary of the left and their painting of people on the right as a certain type of person in their mind. I’m some racist, bigoted, evil war mongering bastard because I’m conservative and in the military? They don’t know me.

    They are their own problem. They can’t even get along with other Libs. They are always trashing each other & almost never agree on much of anything. The only thing they agree on is that they don’t like Republicans, conservative or otherwise.

    Lately I’ve been thinking that we conservatives ought to start acting exactly like these libtards depict us.

    And then they’d really have a real problem.
