Garofalo: Tea Party racist, liberal media ‘a myth,’ Justice Thomas suffering Stockholm syndrome

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but comedienne Janeane Garofalo still has a low regard for the Tea Party movement and just about all other things conservative.

On Current TV’s Thursday broadcast of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” during the “Web extra” segment, Garofalo admitted she wasn’t happy there were those that despised her for her 2009 remarks declaring the Tea Party “a bunch of teabagging rednecks,” but she stood by them.

“I do not enjoy when people don’t like me,” Garofalo said. “I would prefer to be well like in any and all situations. And I also feel it’s quite unjust to be punished for calling racism ‘racism.’ And I don’t know why so few people, especially back then a couple of years ago were willing to say that word.”

According to Garofalo, a double standard exists for black politicians compared to white politicians.
