There are a lot of misconceptions about Janeane Garofalo out there: she’s a vegan, she defines Gen X, she turned down the role of Monica on Friends, she’s my best friend’s stepmother’s cousin (that’s not a joke…Janeane confirmed this wasn’t true). So what IS the truth about Janeane G? Well she’s not afraid to speak her mind, for one thing! We got a chance to chat with Janeane at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary’s Komedy For Karma event last night. Check out the interview below!

Ecorazzi: How did you first get involved with Woodstock?

Janeane Garofolo: I can’t remember now. I think we interviewed them while I was working at Air America. I think we interviewed Jenny. So I believe I became involved when I was working at Air America and we just kept in touch.

E:You were a vegetarian for 18 years…

JG: Right, but I’m no longer a vegetarian.

E: I read that.

JG: I’m a vegetarian except for bacon. The amount of times I eat bacon is negligible though. I’d say I eat bacon once or twice a year. But other than that — no meat at all.

E: Now I know you’re very politically involved. Are you excited to see Obama in office?

JG: Yes, very. But I’m not excited when he panders to the right wing. I’m not excited about that at all. Democrats make that mistake all the time. The DLC is responsible. They think it’s prudent to pander to the least among us – which would be conservatives. And it’s a very vocal minority. They’re just the squeakiest wheel so they get greased.

When Obama tries to “reach across the aisle,” it’s a fool’s errand. They will never be bipartisan because their ideology won’t allow for it. So I don’t know why Obama is doing things like taking reproduction justice out of the stimulus package. Stuff like that is just nonsensical.

E: What are three things you’d like to really see Obama change in this country?

JG: I’d like to see him be a proud liberal and say it. You know what I mean? There’s no shame in being a liberal – it’s something to be very proud of. He should say it – cause he is one – and he should be proud to be one. And since it is clear and has been clear since Reagan that the republicans, the “conservatives” will NEVER play ball…NEVER…fu%$ um.

Their policies have destroyed us and most of the world – that’s a fact not an opinion. Their policies of deregulation, pre-emptive strikes, unmitigated support for Israel to the detriment of the Israelis, Palestinian’s, Americans, the British. Every single policy that “conservative republicans” have put forth since Reagan has destroyed us. And we affect most of the world, so why do they still get a say? That’s what blows my mind. It’s almost like self-flagellation or masochism in some way. We keep going to that portion. They are NEVER going to compromise. The thing is that the more you give in to something like that, the more they take advantage.

The reason a person is a conservative republican is because something is wrong with them. Again, that’s science – that’s neuroscience. You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive. And they revel in their anti-intellectualism. They revel in their cruelty.

I don’t know if you heard me talking to Jenny a while ago, but I was saying that first you have to be an asshole and then comes the conservatism. You gotta be a dick to cleave onto their ideology.

E: This might be an appropriate time to segue into Sarah Palin. I would love to know what you think about Palin.

JG: Probably what most people think about Sarah Palin. She’s small-minded and mean-spirited. It has nothing to do with gender — I don’t give a shit about her gender — she is what the Republican Party has become: obstructionist, contrarians, small-minded, all of these things. She just happens to be attractive. There’s definitely something wrong with her. She’s lacking in so many areas. Of course she’s successful with a segment of the country because she represents that lesser segment of the country. It’s people’s lesser nature – their human frailty. You know whatever’s wrong with them is what she is about.

E: I think it’s safe to say she’s done some pretty nutty things.

JG: It’s not even nutty. It really is neuroscience. I truly believe that it has something to do with their limbic brain. I really believe that some people’s limbic brain dominates more than others. Our limbic brain controls all our emotions and it causes us to be irrational. Our limbic brain goes into action when we’re ecstatic, frightened, when we’re having sex. I really believe that if a neuroscientist examined the brain of somebody who identified as a conservative, they would find it’s wired differently.

E: I know you’re about to do your set, so I don’t want to keep you. Are there any projects you have in the works?

JC: I just wrapped on 24. I’m sort of always doing stand-up. I’m doing some dates here, San Francisco, Portland, England, Ireland, Melbourne. So just waiting for another job. I think I might be doing another series on USA next year, but it’s still just theoretical.

A big thank you to Jeneane Garofolo for taking the time to chat with us. And also much thanks to Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary for arranging this interview. You guys rock!

    She says Palin is small minded and mean spirited, what about her? I’ve found that liberals are the biggest hypocrits alive, they preach tolerance, but they tolerate only those who agree with them, and hate everyone else. You can see that by their attitude towards Palin even today months after their guy was elected, they are still heaping abuse on Palin, and expressing some of the most bitter and hateful thoughts. If McCain-Palin had won, conservatives would be totally ignoring 0bama Biden, they wouldn’t be spending their time continuing to attack them, they’d be happy that their candidate had won.

  • Marie Weatherford

    I learned a long time ago not to criticize people for doing something that is foreign to me. Killing a moose for food is absolutely NO DIFFERENT than killing a deer for food. Have you ever had venison chili or venison sausage? It’s better than beef or pork any day of the week and twice on Sunday. But it’s regulated – just like hunting moose is in Alaska. Southerners drink iced tea – Northerners drink hot tea. Does that make one or the other wrong? Why be so jealous of someone that you have to look for things about her life or life-style to attack? Have you really nothing better to do with your time?

  • badger

    Sarah being mean spirited and small minded for wanting The USA to be fiscally resoponsible. At least Sarah is taking care of her state and is not still out campainging for a stimulus.Who is running our country by the way. Oh wait puppet master soros behind the scenes.

  • sfernando

    fact – palin has real accomplishments
    fact -obama has no accomplishments , he is incompetent, has tendency to “vote present”, is a confirmed radical, and has weak leadership qualities and it is already showing with his tax cheats, lobbyists and even plain old pay for play criminals, weak foreign policy and that generational theft porkulus act and his economic fear mongering etc.

    so why is palin smeared and obama lauded?
    those who are not obamabots should and will ask that
    ms janeane garofalo is an irrational obambot it claer and small minded and mean spirited to boot

  • IronJawAngel

    Just another washed up has been, who is trying to get her 15 minutes of fame. Go away stupid!

  • Clifton B

    Bravo Janeane! Spoken like at true elitist wannabe!

    “It’s people’s lesser nature – their human frailty. You know whatever’s wrong with them is what she is about.”

    Really now, all this grand wisdom from a bicycle messenger, turn comedian, turn radio personality finally turn D-Lister. Perhaps, all those metamorphosis’ has left Janeane’s “limbic” brain a tad confused as to who she really is. Jeanane, you are just a run of the mill liberal slacker, with a knack for finding 15 minutes of fame, and guess what? Your time is up! Bye-bye!

  • Rightway

    Janean has been trying to get noticed her whole career, but just can’t to make the grade. She doesn’t have talent or looks and never will. Her only avenue is to be a koolaid drinker and ride in on the back of great women like Sarah Palin. Go back to the comedy club Janean, maybe some stoners will take you seriously.

  • navy

    how can 1 have such a view of such a great american—-sarah of course is smarter,prettier,and a lot more honest and has more respect for others—I think its called envy

  • JL

    Greg – I think, subscribing oneself to either label is a fool’s game.

    Unfortunately, we don’t have that many options, especially when it comes to news outlets.

    JG’s statements can be switched whichever way. And it’s scary, and it sucks. But both are right.

    Or should I say, both are wrong?

    My $.02

    Funniest thing I’ve read all day. Obama has already proven to be more of a leader in less than a month than President Bush proved during his entire tenure.

  • JL

    Wow, onslaught of “Palin People” before I even finished my post…

    Congrats, EcoRazzi – you always get the #3-5 Google spot…. It’s both an accomplishment, and, as you see here, a pain in the butt.

  • parrish

    It looks like the Sarah Palin Fan Club has found Ecorazzi! Hola, you guys! Kill any wild game lately? Oh, but I joke.

    We of course welcome your opinions, but beeeeeeee nice. We try to play touch here on the Razz, not tackle.

  • Gary

    “Obama has already proven to be more of a leader in less than a month than President Bush proved during his entire tenure.”


    Who are you kidding? That lightweight loser has lost control of government. Hell, Nancy Pelosi is the President, not the man-child.

    Obama has never run a city, never run a state, never run a lemonade stand, and it certainly shows.

    Obama is out of his depth. The man is not a leader, he is simply a puppet .

    Every one of his cabinet members are crooks and tax evaders. He’s nothing more than a Chicago ACORN thug.

    Now, in contrast, here is a very short list of Palin’s resume:

    City Council Woman, Wasilla, Alaska

    Mayor, Wasilla , Alaska. Two terms, term limited out.

    President of the Alaska Conference of Mayors.

    Chairman. Alaska Oil And Gas Conservation Commission. The largest oil and gas regulatory board of it’s kind in the nation. STRONG ETHICS REFORM


    Governor Of Alaska.

    Chairman of The Interstate Oil And Gas Compact Commission. As voted in by other Governors.

    Chairman. National Governors Association’s Natural Resource Committee. As voted unanimously by the other 49 Governors.

    Palin is a recognized authority on energy, and environmental issues.

    Vice Chairman. National Republican Governor’s Association.

    Commander in Chief of the only National Guard in the nation that is on permanent deployment.

    The 176th Wing, of the Alaska Air National Guard train with and is part of the United States Air Force. They are vital to our air defenses, and are the first line of defense should Russia, North Korea, or China decide they want to become aggressive.

    The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks.

    As governor of Alaska, Palin is briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism.

    As Governor Palin’s position as CIC is rather unique, she has a rather high national security clearance as well. Something Barack Obama and Joe Biden never had.

    She’s also the Commander-In-Chief of the Alaska State Defense Force (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security’s counterterrorism plans.

    Governor Palin also has extensive foreign trade experience.

    Governor Palin just hosted a delegation from nations that are direct trading partners with Alaska, including Sergey Kislyak is the newly appointed ambassador of the Russian Federation to the United States.

    Also at the meeting were Consuls General from the Russian Federation, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Hungary, Norway, South Korea, The Philippines, as well as representatives from Canada and China.

    “Members of the Alaska consular corps also participated, including: Karen Matthias, of Canada; Hideo Fujita, of Japan; Hee-chul Kim, of South Korea; and Jose Luis Cuevas, of Mexico. They were joined by honorary consuls of the Czech Republic, Poland, Finland, Seychelles, and Norway”

    Governor Palin just signed the license to build the TransCanada natural gas pipeline. Something Alaska has been trying to do for 50 years.

    She went in, cleaned up the process and got it done. This is the largest infrastructure project in history.

    Environmentalists love this.

    Alaska is sitting on 400 TRILLION cubic feet of natural gas. That is more than all of the world’s oil reserves!

    And natural gas is the cleanest burning fuel there is. It’s almost zero emissions.

    Even better, every major car manufacturer makes cars that burn compressed natural gas, and have for decades.

    There are millions of trucks, cars, and buses in use daily.

    While every other politician TALKS a good game, Governor Palin just put the wheels in motion to make the United States completely energy independent, as well as clean and green!

    Just last week, Governor Palin announced that Alaska will not only meet the plan Mr Obama has for renewable energy, she will DOUBLE it!

    Obama wants to see America get 25 percent of it’s energy from renewable resources. well, Alaska already gets 25 percent of it’s energy from renewables! So, she has pledged to have Alaska get 50 percent of it’s energy from renewables by 2025.

    She and her husband, Todd still own a small commercial fishing business. The season is quite short. But as time permits, you’ll see her out there working the nets with the men. She’ll bring in those big fish with the best of them.

    Once, she even refused to take it easy after her fingers were crushed in an accident when two boats collided. She went to the doctor and was back at it the same day.

    She knows exactly what hard work looks like, and isn’t afraid to take refresher courses from time to time!

    Governor Palin is what America is all about. She represents the best it has to offer.

    Hateful liberals represent the worst.

    As far as Janeane Garofalo, she’s a disappointment. Years ago, I thought she had talent. But she has turned into an angry shrew. Really sad. I have a hard time watching one of my favorite shows now, 24, because she is in it.

  • Surfcityusa

    This has been of an actress/comedian, is a bad joke. How anyone can subject themselves to listening to her idiot dribble is beyond me. She is merely taking up oxygen in this universe. Yawnnnn

    He is still voting present. Out doing town hall meetings so all his koolaid drinkers can salivate over the messiah

  • Becky

    Oh I see. Janean is so smart that she is doing stand up comedy and took the 24 job because she was out of work. Sarah Palin is so dumb that she is Governor of a huge energy producing state. Hmmmmmm

  • tinkerthinker

    Sarah Palin is small minded? LOL I think you must be having some sort of flashback…

  • tinkerthinker

    We can’t really help it if you are ugly… and you don’t belong,,, believe me with the people from Woodstock!

  • Sherri

    It’s a true shame Janeane Garofalo has crawled out from the shadows once again into the limelight on TV “24” being miscast as a Cloie want-a-be that is just down right sad. Her career has hit a new low. To join the Obama mob for this bacon eating 18 yr ex-vegan is so wrong for she confuses herself more every year with her poor life choices.
    It’s amazing so many rumors about Sarah Palin have started a feeding frenzy of mob proportions. Obama zealots have fallen hook, line and sinker for their own propaganda. To attack mindlessly those who are defending this country and America’s interests are being smeared to the point that one wonders why the cruelty and viciousness of the attack? You’d think by now someone would wonder just who wound them up to begin with? I guess that’s why they are called a mob. A shameless group who bite the hand that feeds them. One day this light will shine on the person throwing the rocks and they’ll see same of the same truth before it hits them square in the forehead. Of course its too late by then. A fool rarely sees the errors of his ways until it is too late.

  • coolpillow

    JG = Al Franken.
    Go check JG’s fridge- bet there is a lot more PORK than bacon- and other red meat.

    She is an idiot- and no one care’s what this dumb B**** says.

    Barry got to Washington and he has his left blinker on and HE WON’T QUIT.

    And yes- there are Sarah Palin supporters-
    Because Barry, Rahmbo (the dead fish guy) wants to take over the CENSUS- this is Constitutional!
    These people are taking us over.

    Google “military bases/concentration camps.”

    Wise up- idiots!
    And stop covering these left-wing loons!
    Usurpers ALL OF THEM!
    From the top DOWN !!!!

  • John from Philly

    Soon Sarah Palin’s “mama grizzly” pro life feminism, fiscal conservatism, and box office charisma will make its positive mark. America will be a better place for having had her as a daughter.

    How do we know this? We’re still talking about her months after this better half of the GOP ticket went back to her Arctic home.

    The first couple of comments read like it’s actually the same person (troll?) posting. Why not have us sign in with passwords before commenting, Perez does it…
    It’s still interesting why so many people who do not seem to agree with Ecorazzi’s posts in any way whatsoever find their way here. Debate is good, not saying everyone has to have the exact same opinions, but hate-mongers are boring…
    Janeane Garofalo has never been a star, but she’s good at what she does and it’s quite refreshing with a celeb who actually speaks their own mind and stands up for their beliefs.

  • Erin of Raw Foods Retreat

    Welcome you Palin Pigs!

    Now please unfasten the seat belts from around your big fat meat eating guts and go back to your closed little minded sites. We’ll see ya next time we post about your favorite loser.


  • christy

    Those who disrespect Gov. Palin are only disrespecting themselves. If there were a compilation (and there may be somewhere) of all the unprecedented vitriolic slander directed at this absolutely charming intelligent and RESPECTFUL woman, it would deserve a place of honor in a Hall Of Shame.
    I have come to the conclusion that certain types of people need scapegoats and sacrificial victims to satisfy some kind of atavistic sadism that compels them to attack what is beautiful and good. Any NORMAL human being, would be able to see that Sarah Palin is a down to earth good person and agree or disagree with her policies and positions, afford the high respect that is her DUE, that she DESERVES, for her honest work on behalf of the American People and her lifelong efforts to live in a loving, intelligent and moral life..

  • Steptoe

    Governor Palin’s record of achievement is huge. Even with all of the world’s media spreading lies and half truths, she remains the most popular Governor in America.

    In addition to being Governor, Palin serves as Chairman of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multi-state government agency that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment.

    Governor Palin is also the Chairman of the National Governors Association’s Natural Resources Committee. Voted in by the other 49 Governors.

    She is a recognized authority on energy issues.

    Something else that people overlook, and this is key: Governor Palin is Commander-in-Chief of the only National Guard that is on permanent deployment.

    The 176th Wing, of the Alaska Air National Guard train with and is part of the United States Air Force. They are vital to our air defenses, and are the first line of defense should Russia, North Korea, or China decide they want to become aggressive.

    Recently, the 176th Wing was awarded for it’s actions. It escorted 22 Russian Bear bombers out of US airspace. I’m sure you’ve read that Russia is flying the Bear again, and seeing what they can get away with. The award was for much more tough.

    She also commands the 49th Missile Defense Battalion, which is the missile defense for all of North America in the Pacific.

    As Governor Palin’s position as CIC is rather unique, she receives regular briefings from Homeland Security, as well as other agencies. Govern Palin has a rather high security clearance as well. Something neither Obama nor Biden had prior to their win.

    Governor Palin also has extensive foreign trade experience. Governors, that have something

  • Thomas McMahan

    Who is this person. Talk about small minded, she is the microcosm. Sarah Palin is known for working across the aisle and getting things done. She is a conservative who lives and acts by conservative principles. You mayt have different views, but calling someone small minded who has diferent values from yours is very small minded.


  • Julie

    In the liberal worldview assertions are the truth, everything else is hateful opposition to the agenda. All those who oppose the agenda are evil. There are no facts other than what proves the assertion, all else is misinterpreted or irrelevant data. The agenda determines the assertion, the assertion is the truth and only the relevant facts support the assertion. Anyone who attempts to subvert the truth of the assertion is evil and their minds are full of hate. Thus forms the perfect circle of liberal thought, the agenda, the truth and the relevant facts. If you are a lawyer reading this, you know why the American system of law has nothing to do with justice, the perfect circle is drawn by the line of argument.

  • joyfulcardinal

    Governor Palin is a truthful person and has nothing to hide.
    She always will work on behalf of the people she represents. And she is doing a great job in Alaska during this economic roller coaster. She was prudent and encouraged the legislators to save for a rainy day. And now she is not grouping for money and selling her soul to the devil.
    She is thinking through everything.

    But quite the opposite – BO along with Reid and Peolsi
    don’t have a clue to know when it’s time to cut back. They are anxious to spend money that’s not there. He has to borrow the money. How stupid is that. All BO does is use sophistry to peddle his wares and deceive.

    And people like you fall in line and criticize others with untruths to benefit yourselves.

    Now Janeane – can you see the clear difference with your mean-spirited, uninformed, ignorant comments. You have never met the governor. So your comments reaveal what you’re all about-like Obama – nothing. Just an empty suit.

  • Sporty

    Janeane who?

  • Marisol Fernandez

    Wow…who are all this Palin-loving losers? Or is it just one loser who keeps posting over and over using different names. I wonder if the razzi can check the IP addresses to see where these losers (or this loser) is coming from…..

    Obama won the election…McCain/Palin lost and lost big time. GET OVER IT!

  • NormaJ

    Wow, this Janeane person is really a pitiful human being, and very hypocritical. She says conservatives are intolerant and hateful, then proceeds to spout hatred, insults, and intolerance. Does she not even realize how foolish she looks?? I bet she also thinks Bill Ayers is a great person.

  • Tiffany

    All the liberal Palin haters are just like parrots and can’t come up with an original thought of their own. So, high school of them.

  • Ohbummer

    Janut,Marisol and rest of kool-aid drinkers of the BO Messiah.

    Sit up and listen!

    The REAL losers are the ones who are still believing that this FRAUD BO can save their sorry a@@’s and get them a home and plenty of cash. This BO’s popularity is now going down the tubes according to the polls – he’s left with the Zombies ( the dead ducks)People are now waking up to the FACT that he is NOTHING but a FRAUD on the American people with ZERO experience.

    Futhermore, he is dumb as an OX.

    This BO fraud has been spending his time appointing TAX CHEATS and CROOKS including a Child Porn guy into his Cabinet.

    Now he wants to ram down a SHAM Stimulus bill laden with PORK onto the American people.

    He should get IMPEACHED before he does any further damage to this great nation.

    Gov Palin on the other hand is AMERICA’s success story! The most popular Gov in AMERICA.

    Anyone with half a brain can see that Janeane Garofalo is a horrible looking woman. No wonder she’s spitting-mad jealous of Gov Sarah Palin.

    This woman, Garofalo, needs commitment papers and quick. She is bona-fide crazy.

  • TLR

    Janeane Garofalo: “You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive.”

    The irony kills me. This statement is maladjusted, closed-minded, provincial, ignorant. And typical of a showbiz Democrat! How can Janeane be so blind to this delicious bit of irony? Well, she is a dreadful comedian – but this statement did manage to make me laugh, despite myself.

  • Kin

    Janeane, you’re a washed up old hag! Don’t tread on Sarah Palin’s coattails to get back into the limelight. You and Ashley Judd should probably consider sharing a trailer. Get a new gig, you’re pathetic!

  • Jennifer

    Wow, this woman is calling Sarah Palin close minded and mean spirited? Maybe she was talking about herself! Her comments about Sarah speak volumes about her.

    I guess she had to mention Sarah so someone would read her interview?

    Typical paranoid liberal. Maybe if you’d quit drinking the Koolade you’d come out from under the man-child’s spell.

    Obama did NOT win big time. He didn’t do much better than Bush did in 2004.

    Winning “big time” is what Ronald Reagan did. When he beat the worst President ever (until now) he won 44 states, and over 500 electoral points.

    Then he won 49 states and almost 600 electoral votes during his re-election.

    Both of those are record wins.

    That’s the kind of victory Sarah Palin will win in 2012. Sarah Palin IS the very essence of Ronald Reagan. That’s why 60 million people voted for her in 2008.

    As more people get to know her, her base grows. And, we certainly defend her.

    When someone thinks they can get away with trashing her, they have another thing coming.

    As far as the commenters here, check the IP addresses, you’ll find they come from all over the nation.

    Sarah Palin is America’s Governor, and soon will be America’s President.

  • Adrienne

    This woman makes absolutely no sense. I don’t think she even knows what she’s talking about. As for mean-spirited, clearly she’s utterly and completely clueless as to what that is. If she’d truly like to know what it is, she need only listen to herself speak. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, speaks lovingly of God, family, and country, and believes in the value of all human life. She handles–with grace and unbelievable patience–the mean-spiritedness of people like Janeane Garofalo who find it necessary to bash her out of their own attempt to find a way to live with what they have become. I am convinced that Sarah Palin angers so many liberals because the life that they see her live causes them to see and therefore despise what they see in their own lives, and instead of dealing with that, they’d rather lash out at Sarah. I don’t need the help of a neuroscientist, for even I can diagnose this behavior as insane. I liken it to the behavior of one who looks in the mirror, sees his unkempt appearance, and smashes the mirror rather than fixing the mess! Ms. Gorofalo is correct about one thing, however: She says that a neuroscientist would find that a conservative’s brain is “wired differently.” Indeed it is. It’s wired RIGHT–in more ways than one.

  • navy

    sarah palin 2012

  • Wow

    Ah yes,divisive rhetoric,insults, belittling and lies. How I do miss the McCain/Palin campaign. Please, keep it up and tell your leader to keep up her antics as well. It will insure that she NEVER gets close to the white house.

  • Ceecee

    Why do you think that Sarah Palin is mean-spirited? Is it because she is pro-life? I know the pro-aborts try so hard to portray pro-lifers as monsters. Is that why you think Sarah is mean?
    She comes across to me as caring and compassionate. She loves her kids and her baby is big for his age, fat, and healthy looking. He also looks happy. Sarah is taking good care of him. She loves her husband and the rest of her family too.

    At rallies, the crowds love her because she communicates empathy to them. She is compassionate to the handicapped, and connected with them on the campaign trail. Do you care for the handicapped? Or do you feel uncomfortable around them and wish they would go away?

    I have always seen her treat people graciously, even when they were being obnoxious.

    I think you call her narrow and mean, just because she has views that are different from your views. But disagreeing with you doesn’t make a person mean. It just means they disagree with you.

  • Ceecee

    Sarah Palin for president of the U.S. in 2012. Failing that may she be president is 2016.

    Sarah Palin: The first woman president of the United States of America.


  • Erin of Raw Foods Retreat

    Sarah Palin 2012- maybe running some fringe psycho anti abortion group (while she and her kid pop out more kids- as i’ve said before- just had to have that one last one didn’t you sarah even though you knew it was a risk to you and the baby- so pathetic) she might be running some fringe group but certainly not the United states of america.

    I hope she’s proud of her sad family and unplanned grandchild

  • Adrienne

    Erin, maybe you should stop eating your food raw. Perhaps a little fire under your food would spark more brain activity. Yes, Sarah Palin had another baby. Yes, she is pro-life. It’s a sick time in our history when those things disgust people. Check your heart; is it beating? Why the need to attack her family–and her grandchild, as if he deserves it. Your comments reveal how depraved your values are and how frightened you are of the character within Sarah Palin–and it’s the truth, no matter how vehemently you deny it. It’s oozing out of you. If you’d rather not show it, the best thing you could do is remain quiet. But then again liberals’ attack of Sarah Palin speaks volumes–not about her, but about them–and it’s a long, ugly, nonsensical speech.

  • Whoever…

    Wow… I’ve never ‘seen’ so many palin lovers gathered in one place before!! Where’s my ignorant-zombified-people hunting gun? Let me have them… :)

    geeeeezzz… Ecorazzi is being very ill-frequented these days!

    What is wrong with these people?
    If they hate nature (scientifically, drilling is not the answer) and animals (you don’t cruelly shoot down those you like) what are they doing on a eco animal-friendly site? Humans disappoint me a ‘little’ every single day!!!

    For those who believe the beginning of this alleged worldwide crisis was just an ‘accident’, then the USA and your lifestyle would be the responsible ones for it! It all started over there…
    President Obama is respected worldwide. Because of him, the respect and admiration the rest of the world once had for the USA is coming back (and no, I’m not saying he’s a saviour…). With bush and the likes of him (palin included – she’s a creationist for cryin’ out loud; Darwin is being celebrated by science in civilized countries all over the world) the USA and Americans were hated!!!

    Just a side note – for those who think otherwise about this crisis and believe it was engineered by a group of people who just want to control the world and its people, I recommend watching this:

    Judge for yourselves…

    Isn’t it interesting that this crisis emerged when Barack Obama was ahead in the polls? And why did he represent such a threat to some people? Because there is a global desire to change things… People feel the ‘system’ doesn’t work any more. It’s not enough… People want a change – they want cruelty, hunger, poverty, war, the destruction of the environment and the abuse of humans and animals to end! Obama as a candidate just reflected that change and it wasn’t convenient to some powerful people! What, having people open their eyes and demand true freedom? No way, ‘we’ can’t have that!!!

    That’s why President Obama is so appreciated worldwide. He reflects what most of us desire – an evolution!!
    All of you Americans should stand by him and do your part because if he can’t do it, then all of us will see a real worldwide crisis!

    There’s so much going on people don’t even have a clue about!

    Open your eyes and forget palin…

    You President is Obama – respect him and help him get the USA back on its feet. Take a look at McCain… He is actually supporting him because he wants what’s best for his country…!

    And if palin ever gets to be president (may the gods forbid that from happening) the USA will be completely alone in the world!!!

    Sorry for the extension of my comment…

  • JL

    Whoever… I don’t know if the Palin People are still around (they’ll keep you busy today!), but I had to comment on one of the points of your post:

    “palin included…she’s a creationist, for cryin’ out loud”

    So is Obama. Now, the difference is, Obama still believes in Evolution. Better yet, he says:

    “…I think it’s a mistake to try to cloud the teaching of science with theories that frankly don’t hold up to scientific inquiry.””

    Unfortunately, at least for the next 50 years, there will be a bible-hugger in the office. And, if you believe in the bible, then you believe in Creation theory. My personal opinion – it’s not a good thing. Humans aren’t all that special; the sooner we realize it, the sooner we see how lucky we are to just exist in this fine world, and the sooner we all work to protect it.

    There is no Heaven, no Judgment Day and no better place to look forward to. This is it. We should enjoy it and protect it. We can all agree the Human Experience is a wonderful thing, which we should strive to perpetuate.

    “The reason a person is a conservative republican is because something is wrong with them. Again, that’s science – that’s neuroscience. You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive. And they revel in their anti-intellectualism. They revel in their cruelty.”

    She is exactly correct, there must be a consensus on this settled neuro-science. Being a conservative/republican must mean that something is mentally wrong with you. By definition you are not as tolerant and open-minded as a proud liberal.

    Conservatives need mental help. If they won’t get it on their own, they should be put away until they have been re-educated.

    By definition it should be a hate crime to speak conservative ideology. We need liberal speech codes like on quite a few college campuses to control this abusive intolerant conservative thought and speech.

  • Kelly

    “We of course welcome your opinions, but beeeeeeee nice.”

    Nice? Is that what you call this interview? Nice?

    She just said that we’re mentally unbalanced and shouldn’t even get a say in politics. If what she’s saying is even halfway true, she should be worried that we’ll come at her with an axe, because we just can’t control ourselves.

    Oh, and further proof of your “nice” policy:

    “By definition it should be a hate crime to speak conservative ideology.”

    Yes, please, start locking us up after years of whining about fascism. Do you people even listen to yourselves?

  • Jack Wilson

    Nothing more depressing than a dumbbell who thinks she is intelligent.

  • Kelly

    “Because of him, the respect and admiration the rest of the world once had for the USA is coming back”

    Check the polls before making this false assessment. While the world loves Obama, they haven’t changed their mind about the US or our foreign policy (after all, we’ll still be in Iraq as long as we would have if Bush were still president).

    “Isn’t it interesting that this crisis emerged when Barack Obama was ahead in the polls?”

    Your memory is a little foggy. It was actually the other way around. Obama was behind in the polls until the economy started to crumble. Democrats always get an advantage in the polls when the economy isn’t doing so well, just like Republicans get an advantage to a military crisis.

    “You President is Obama – respect him and help him get the USA back on its feet. Take a look at McCain… He is actually supporting him because he wants what’s best for his country…!”

    First, don’t expect Republicans to give more respect to Obama than you gave to Bush. Most will out of their own patriotism which isn’t tied to the White House, but you shouldn’t expect it. Second, even McCain isn’t supporting Obama on this disastrous bill which will do more harm than good.

  • Jim

    When I read this article then I think that Janeane Garofalo is really small-minded and mean-spirited.

    Compared to Garofalo , Sarah Palin is authentic and charming; outside ,but specially inside.

    Despite the immense bashing of people like Garofalo and the main stream media , Sarah Palin always stays very kind, integer and stately.

  • T. Anthony

    Janeane Garofolo is so intellectually deprived that I can’t understand why her views are given consideration even by this rag.

    Garafolo is anything but intellectual. Her shallow attempts to toss out scientific terms is pathetic. She is very hateful in this interview. She is the one making attacks on peoples intelligence etc.

    Liberals are generally fake and phony. They usually embrace empty symolism over action. Best example I can give was from the inagural.
    We had 2 Reverends. One Black Liberal and a White Conservative. Lowery and Warren. We know who is the loudest but who actually did more for blacks? Rick Warrens record in Rwanda is available all over the web. But Liberals can hold hands and sing John Lennon songs thinking they actually make a difference.

    “I hope that all these losers for Palin wise up and go vegan…..”

    Once again, showing that prejudice knows no bounds, you make a statement grounded in nothing but your opinion. Many Republicans and conservatives ARE vegans. We’re not the cookie cutter shapes you think we are. What happened to being open-minded? Was that all just a slogan?

  • hairpinand arrow

    JG’s quote follows:

    JG: Probably what most people think about Sarah Palin. She’s small-minded and mean-spirited. It has nothing to do with gender — I don’t give a shit about her gender — she is what the Republican Party has become: obstructionist, contrarians, small-minded, all of these things. She just happens to be attractive. There’s definitely something wrong with her. She’s lacking in so many areas. Of course she’s successful with a segment of the country because she represents that lesser segment of the country. It’s people’s lesser nature – their human frailty. You know whatever’s wrong with them is what she is about.

    There’s a fact in there somewhere? Or all just baseless mean-spirited opinion? It’s so interesting that the most emotional voters of all as a group take the tactic of calling conservatives emotional. Until now they’ve been calling them uptight and rule lovers and clingers to Bible and guns. Now they are emotional! It’s a joke, right? Well, I’m not going to the same base place where the Hollyweird reside, but I have to tell you, this is the tactic of the Saul Alinsky lovers: name call someone else first the things of which you know you are guilty. Like on the playground. Silly immature people stuck somewhere around 7th grade mentality.

  • Jerseyjohn

    It’s getting harder and harder not to think these entertainers all think that they have an automatic understanding of world events and situations because they are able to pretend that they are someone else. I’m one conservative who believes in evolution, not and athesist but not a bible thumper either, think gays should have the right to marry but I don’t want my school age kids to be TOLD that it is an acceptable lifestyle I can teach them about those issues,I actually like the theater but also hunt, own many guns, have been riding a harley for 30 years and I’m ex military. I don’t like bible thumpers as much as I don’t like entertainers using their airtime to spew stupid political idealogy when 99% of them don’t know what the hell they’re talking about, like the skank in this article. Conservatives are not all bible thumpers, we believe in fiscal responsibility, giving welfare help when needed but expecting people to make an effort to support yourself and that doesn’t mean crying because you can’t afford a 53″ flat screen and a BMW. And not all conservatives were behind President Bush 100% just like we won’t be behind BHO 100%. The difference is we will not embarass OUR president DEM or REP in foreign countries, mock his/her family on national tv, make movies about him/her that are totaly fictional and try and pass them off as truth and we respect other peoples views. Something I believe many libs can no longer do.

  • Kim from Canada

    This really isn’t the best way to get people to see your point of view and makes *you* look like the one who is narrow minded and mean. How sad to see such anger.

    I’m amazed that she can be that narrow minded to think that all Republicans (or conservatives) have something wrong with them. That is so much like the conservatives that say all Obama supporters are stupid. There is nothing cut and dried either way J.

  • Chris

    From a mean spirited, small minded, unadjusted person, I found Garofalo to be enlighted. She must be right? Because small minded people always attack those who disagree with their point of view. I wonder if, someone dug into her past (or current situation) if they would find a well adjusted person?

    Just another example of self serving , unknowing libs. Sarah is anything but mean spirited. She has been in charge of much more than the nothing Obama has . AND, seems the bloom is off the rose. He has already shown his inexperience. Change???? Half of his cronies are Washington insiders and Bidin will gaf himself into oblivion soon. As I write this Obama has put his foot in his mouth speaking at some plant saying they will be able to start hiring RIGHT AWAY.

    Well, I would certainly assume then that Janeane will be joining the REPUBLICAN PARTY any day now since she fits all the requirements she lays out for them.

    I find it quite interesting that liberals think they know everything better than everyone else (is she a neuroscientist now?) and then project their own insanities on others. Why, from what I know about people with bi-polar disease and the symptoms, I would venture to say that ALL LIBERALS have it. Therefore, liberalism is a bi-polar mental and emotional disorder.

    I also find it quite hypocritical that she hates big business and capitalism, yet she is quite willing to take their money (24).

    As far as liberal brains being wired “differently” than conservatives, I would present this thought:

    Wiring of a “conservative” brain must be the default, the natural, original way a brain was to be wired since whacked-out liberalism didn’t really set in until the advent of the drug culture, and the damage drugs do to the brain.

    Every once in a while nature makes a gross mistake — it produces someone who has a small brain, a malfunctioning brain, and a brain devoid of the requisite dopamine and serotonin levels to enable that person to live in a sane, rationale, and non-hypocritical world without becoming a hate-monger and constant spewer of vitriol.

    In fact to make a claim to be pluralistic and de facto tolerant, and then to make a foul-mouthed false allegation against conservative Republicans is to reveal the grossness of her hypocrisy and the near-infinite extent of her own single-mindedness and intolerance. Her views are unsubstantiated, worth less than trash, and reveals her true identity: the repository of the “dick” she refers to.

    The poor little girl is a brat and needs to move to a real socialist country where she’ll be locked up upon arrival. The only possession she should be allowed to keep in jail: an American flag.

  • William J. Green

    Appealing to neuroscience to substantiate her claims about Republicans is intellectually tantamount to a monkey appealing to quantum mechanics as the primary reason they eat bananas. Neither has anything to do with the price of tea in China, and Mis-chief Garofolo’s claim otherwise only serves to reveal her deficient IQ, attenuated intelligence, and her disdain and contempt for the intelligence of the average American, while placing her own intelligence solidly under the far-left portion of the bell curve more than 8 standard deviations from the mean, where the asymptotic nature of that curve can only be seen under an electron microscope.

    She’s not only irreverent, she’s completely irrelevant.

  • Scott

    Insults. Intolerance. Hate. Holier-than-thou attitudes. These are the hallmarks of the radical left, And Garofalo exhibits all of them. Almost forgot one: The urge to shut down dissent. Garofalo even said she wanted to shut Republicans out of power permanently. The dictatorial streak is in you, Garofalo, not conservatives. And besides that, everything you say about conservatives and about Sarah Palin is a bald-faced lie.

    By the way, I refuse to watch “24”. Too violent for my tastes, anyway.

    Dear Janeane Garofalo,

    Please correct me if I’m wrong however I did pull this definition from
    Liberal: Open-minded or tolerant, esp. free of or not bound by traditional or conventional ideas, values, etc.
    Free from prejudice or bigotry.
    Janeane Garofalo, please do me the pleasure of showing me where in your interview do you display any of the qualities and characteristics in which you so claim to be part of. For you to make the overall general bias and profoundly and blatantly moronic assumption, although all you really are portraying yourself to be is the first three letters of assumption, that someone who is conservative is in your own words;
    “The reason a person is a conservative republican is because something is wrong with them. Again, that’s science – that’s neuroscience. You cannot be well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened and be a republican. It’s counter-intuitive. And they revel in their anti-intellectualism. They revel in their cruelty.”
    Is just downright absurd. Since we all know you graduated with a degree in neuroscience from the University of…oh wait you don’t have a degree in that field hence you are in no position to open your mouth and state “scientific” facts. Secondly considering you more than likely have NO, 0, Zip, Nada conservative friends what would you know about a Conservative? You mean those same conservatives who join the Military to protect you and your right to run that motor you call a mouth? Or maybe you just were referring to those conservatives who during the beloved Clinton years did this little thing called balancing the budget and creating a surplus you would so adimently give Clinton credit for? Or maybe even you are referring to those same conservatives that you conveniently forget were the party to of anti-slavery or who came out and voted in majority for the Civil Rights Act that so many LIBERAL DEMOCRATS opposed?
    But you are correct our support for a nation of Jewish people who have had their names, religion and even been physically dragged through the mud, and constantly at risk of death, is the wrong thing to do because their Arab neighbors won’t even go far as to accept their existence.
    You see Ms. Garofalo, after reading your article I understand why you still carry the title of Ms., you have proven the typical liberal stereotype of the “Do as I say not as I do” Elitist attitude, where someone who comes from a different part of the country (Palin – Alaska), although it is in Canada, and degrade and bash them only because they do not share the same outlook of the world. You apparently do not take into account their upbringing, background, and lifestyle in understanding their point of view. No for you it is easier to criticize, demonize, and downright insult as oppose to respectfully disagreeing. Republicans are such a detestable group as you so eloquently portray, although I can’t quite remember which Democratic Administration ever has the 1st Black National Security Advisor, Secretary of State, and first Latino Attorney General. Putting their political views and policy aside, I do believe those close minded Republicans were the first. That same close minded party was the party of a man known as Martin Luther King Jr. who “paved” the way for our current president, convenient how the memory forgets these facts.
    I could continue ranting and raving about the accomplishments of the Republican party since its existence, however I know that wouldn’t matter to you because hypocrisy is easier than admitting you are wrong. Fact is I pride myself on being a Republican. A Republican from Los Angeles, born of immigrant parents, with gay friends and family members, friends of all backgrounds many of whom are black, who volunteers to help those less fortunate than others. A Republican who will always give a homeless person a dollar or two whenever I have one in my pocket. A Republican who believes in LIFE, LIBERTY, and the pursuit of HAPPINESS for ALL. But I guess my values and ideas to you are not “well adjusted, open-minded, pluralistic, enlightened.”

  • Dave

    What a hypocrite Garafolo is. She certainly had no problem climbing down off of her high horse to collect what i am sure is obscene money to play her role on “24” – a show which airs on the right-leaning FOX network. I am a fan of the show and if you follow the story lines, it has demonstrated season after season that when the stakes demand it, extreme interrogation techniques are not only required, but justified. She’ll run her mouth to preach her out-of-touch-with-the-real-world idealogy, but she’s quick to prostitute her “beliefs” for a paycheck. Or a side of bacon.

    Joseph Campbell and Ron Paul are two of my heroes. I used to love Janeane, but WTF? Yes, it’s true, there are a lot of stupid republicans out there (Palin? Really?). But JG is WAY out of line. MOST repubs that I know are moderate, curious, intellectual people who absolutely despise those who dismiss our claims with statements like JG’s. Most of us hate war, despise abortion (hate killing, period), want to take care of our fellow man, etc. But we are HIJACKED by people who think that the money that we earn isn’t ours, who think that hacks in Washington can cure our ills, and that people are not smart/capable enough to shape their own destinies. Sorry JG, but you speak for a population that couldn’t pass a government or economics class to save their lives (unless it was on a standardized test).

    btw. Don’t care about sarah palin. She does NOT speak for the true conservative republicans.

    Don’t you get it? It’s the TRUE republicans that will actually sign up and go fight and die for YOUR right to say what you will.

    The beauty of the fact that you liberals believe in abortion is that there will be fewer of you in the future. The fact that you have to stack the deck with illegal’s and voter fraud is proof that your numbers are dwindling.
    The conservative ideology has been around for thousands of years. Ever hear of Moses. Liberals on the other hand have been around since the “enlightening” began. (i.e. Darwin) Were not going anywhere. You on the other hand are a dying breed.

    It’s very amusing for a foreigner like myself to read all the insults exchanged here…

    I hate labelling people but I didn’t watch on the news the so called conservatives/republicans (whatever) condemn the actions of the racist people who at the palin rally were incited to say that senator (at the time) Obama should be killed!!

    Now you are all outraged because a comedian trashed palin…
    Well that’s what most comedians do – they make fun of others. Personally I don’t appreciate that kind of comedy. I prefer those comedians who are funny but don’t insult anyone, for instance Ellen Degeneres. But you probably hate her because she’s a lesbian and so she doesn’t fit your ‘moral’ standards.

    By the way, what happened to the famous American freedom of speech? Or is it only useful when you conservatives, for instance, want to insult your own president who is now Barack Obama?

    What zombies you are! Can you even understand the paradox? It’s ok for you to trash others when you don’t agree with them or like them, but if those same people say something bad about your ‘people’ you just insult them and wish they were dead!!!

    What are three things you’d like to really see Obama change in this country?

    Hard to find her 3 Obama “things to do” in her answer. Let me try:

    1. be a proud liberal (heck he can’t even admit he’s a liberal)
    2. say it (is she suggesting he’s not transparent!)
    3. conservatives will never play ball so fu%$ um. (He’s aready’s done this!)

    Who cares what JG says, she needs to go back to what she was doing “just waiting for another job.”

    Can’t waste any more time on the thoughts of this brainiac!

  • John Carpenter

    In her ad nauseum rant abut the republican horrors
    leashed on the world, Garofalo asks “…why do they (republicans) have still have a say?” The question
    carries within it, its own answer: Checks and balances.
    The country, the world, and the species, needs a
    counterweight to Garafalo’s malignant intellectual
    narcissism that sees nothing but its own presumed

    Garofalo’s ignorance of her latent desire to see
    political genocide (the extermination of a political
    body with beliefs antithetical to her own) is one of
    the more despicable and virulent forces at work in
    the country today. It is the same mindset that tried
    to silence Aristotle, persecuted Copernicus, and put Semmelweis in an asylum–it’s only a matter of degree.

    It is genuinely disturbing that this ideological extremist
    sanctions quieting voices with opinions opposed to her

    Mercifully, she represents a small but vocal segment of society that over the long run is neither embraced or
    nurtured by tolerant liberals and cpnservatives.

  • KarenM

    WHOEVER, the “kill him” comment is just hearsay

    however Pres. Obama saying small towns in Pennsylvania and the Midwest are bitter and cling to their guns and religion was true and taped!

    Pretty sure this was an untrue distraction story from the fawning Obama press because of this verifiable comment from the then Sen. Obama.

  • bob g

    garofolo is a fool. as kid rock said “if hollywood likes it, it must be wrong?” she should continue by shutting her mouth and realizing she herself is the biggest idiot.

  • PoliticalWatcher

    It’s too bad that Janeane Garofalo’s career has sunk so low that the only way she can establish herself in the press is to make comments that do not portray her native intelligence in a good light. Ah well. I suppose if I were a former A-lister trying to muscle my way back into the public eye, I suppose I might take such drastic, fawning steps of political prostitution. I wish her well, though I find the whole interview tawdry and far below the magnanimous person I once considered her.

  • Dan

    It never ceases to amaze me how ignorant liberals are. Janeane is nothing more than your typical run-of-the-mill tree hugging, anti-war fruitcake who believes we all should live in a Coke commercial. You can’t take this woman seriously because reality is simply not an option for people like this.

    If it were up to her Charles Manson and OJ Simpson would be considered national heros. Every time a liberal gets into office, crime goes up and common sense goes down and its getting epidemic.

    The only reason Obama got into office was because he’s black. Everyone knows that. Fine he’s black. Now what? The only thing this empty suit can do is campaign!! He’s a one trick pony who’s message of “change” is so full of horse crap it’s pathetic. The only change I see is the change rattling in our pockets when this schmuck gets done bankrupting our country!

  • fbr

    Funny how the site is suddenly full of followers of the Church of Palin. I wonder if this article got featured on FOX “News” or something. Sadly not one of them has been able to produce anything but personal attacks and mindless drivel against Janeane. I guess that’s what you can expect from the followers of a person who doesn’t know Africa is a continent.

  • Erin Raw foods retreat

    Wow FBR… As pleased as I am to see you saying something against Palin – I’m confused. You always argue us when we talk of hunting and the issues she supports. So have you turned over a new leaf? or you just doing what most have accused you of doing on this site arguing for arguments sake.


  • Adrienne

    Erin, I’m black! So much for your assertion that we’re “ALL white trash.” Get it together! And by the way, some people love babies and actually understand that they are blessings from God. “Popping out babies”? Not sure why I’m even responding to you. Clearly, you have major issues. Your use of the term “white trash” shows your lack of character. You need deliverance. Anyone who makes elitist, racial comments as you did, and anyone who attacks a politician’s children needs more help than we could possibly give you here. But we should certainly be praying for you.

  • Emily

    Well, it appears that Jeanane will be joining the republican party any day now since her characteristics fit so well by her definition. I mean, by her definition, she’s absolutely a conservative!

    Also, just wondering when Jeanane became a neuroscientist? Wow, now she might be able to get a job doing something to keep her ugly face and greasy hair off 24 and in front of conservatives. Oh, I forgot, she IS A CONSERVATIVE. Pardon me.

  • Emily

    If the republican brain is wired differently than the liberal brain, then I would have to say that the conservative brain wiring is the original default position. Whacked out liberals like Garafalo didn’t appear on the scene en masse until the advent of the drug culture in the 60’s. And you know what kind of brain damage drugs can do.

    My sympathies Jeanane. Maybe you can find a neuroscientist who can help you rewire that thing on top of your shoulders. You’d be happier.

    I’m so sorry if I’m being a racist calling fellow white people “white trash” How in God’s name (pun intended) is that being a racist? If I am being a racist for assuming that the majority of Palin supporters are white – well they are. Hence the white trash statement I stand by (which was more directed at Palin herself than her white trash supporters) You are the first African American (or black – as you used) person I have ever met who is a Palin supporter and I’ve met a lot and worked campaigns. The first I’ve met (or seen online) from East to West coast over the last year.

    Janeane Garofalo is simply filled with hate and intolerance. She is hatefilled and intolerant of anyone who is not like her.

    That’s HATE Janeane. You are more intolerant of those you disagree with than they are of you. We tolerate you and your beliefs. We defend your right to be stupid and idiotic.

    You are a leftist Janeane and it is campus LEFTISTS that have mastered the “Shout Down.” From David Horowitz, to The Minutemen, to Ann Coulter, to John Leo, to Sarah Palin at the Republican National Convention, leftists use the “SHOUT DOWN” to silence anyone they disagree with.

    It is LEFTISTS that try to make laws (Fairness Doctrine)to silence their opponents.

    It is LEFTISTS that attempt to end debate by accusing those who disagree with Obama of being racists.

    It is LEFTISTS that are intolerant. Republicans and conservatives are ten times more tolerant than American Leftists such as Janeane Garofalo.

  • Adrienne

    Erin Raw foods retreat,

    Thank you for responding. Actually, you didn’t say the majority of Palin supporters are white trash; you said they ALL are. I stand by my comment that your words are racist. It matters not that you happen to be white when you say so. Yes, you can be white and still make racially insensitive, clearly prejudiced comments about your own kind. And use of the term “white trash” qualifies. You say that I am the only African-American you have “met” who supports Sarah Palin. That may be so, but I definitely am not the only one–and while some 90% of Black people vote Democratic every time, the truth is that our values as a people do not align themselves with the Democratic agenda. It is my belief that those people who blindly follow a Party that is antithetical to their core values are yet on the plantation. I, however, have been emanicipated and am free to think for myself. I line up my vote with my values, thus my support of Governor Palin. I address this issue thoroughly in my blog at My posts “Get Off The Plantation” and “DON’T BE AFRAID TO SEE WHAT YOU SEE” might be an eye-opener for you. Too many of my people leave their true beliefs outside the voting booth and pick them up when they exit, for they have been bamboozled into making liberals their masters. I’m not one of those people. But whether Black, white, or otherwise, calling people trash because they don’t agree with you is part of the problem. It is elitist, it IS racist, and it’s just plain wrong.

  • SeanNC

    What else can I say. Janeane Garofalo, Al Franken, Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Leo DeCaprio and Barbra Streisand: You people exemplify intolerance.

    You leftists are completely intolerant of anyone who disagrees with you. You are full of hate. You want to silence your opponents. You want to silence me and people like me. You hate dissent.

    I thought dissent was the highest form of patriotism. Oh. Only as long as you leftists were dissenting. That’s real patriotism. When I dissent I’m being a racist. Or white trash. I get it now.

    Leftist dissent = patriotism. Conservative dissent = racism.

    I see.

    You people make me sick.

  • GirlieGirlArmy

    Funny, I never cared enough about Garafalo before to ever research her background, but I did just do the Wikipedia thing on her. Now I understand the basis of her hate. It’s obvioulsy the result of self-hate turned outward. It seems she is the direct benefactor of the same Big Oil she and her ilk rail against. You see, her mom was a secretary in the petrochemical industry, and her father was an executive at Exxon. I kid you not, it’s what put bread on their table. Hollywood couldn’t have written a better plot twist.

  • Erin Raw foods retreat

    Dear Adrienne,

    Thank you for *your* response as well. First and foremost please don’t call me a Liberal! Gee look you stereotyped me too! If you notice I quoted Dr. Ron Paul in my post 3 posts above and am a very very SMALL government Libertarian conservationist. I am not a huge government Christian like George Bush using God’s name to have a big fat war and make more money for my daddy Bush and relatives and rich black hating Neocon Repbulican friends like Dick “no morals” Cheney (who does not like gay or black people) you call THEM ethical!!????…. but back to that in a second.

    “George Bush does not like Black people”

    – Kanye West (the truest words he ever uttered. Bush left thousands upon thousands of black people stranded in the South after the hurricane (and still many are homeless!) because he spent all the countries money on a war where guess who gets killed in these wars first!? That’s right the poor black soldiers…

    As far as my quote; I actually said “I forgot all you gun loving gut bearing right wingers were ALL white trash too.” So yes I might be mistaken. Some of them might not be white – a better term I should have used would be redneck. Heck maybe that’s not even a good term (never heard of a redneck who isn’t white) I’ll think of a better one. Stereotyping – I might be guilty of – but being a racist? Against my own “people” I am a racist against white people? I think some of them are trashy if that makes me racist for calling them white trash then you can call me that. I would rather argue another point that you made.

    You called the Democrats unethical to the core (and called me a Liberal in the same sentence/paragraph so I take it you’re calling me a Democrat? Again, I’m a Libertarian and a CONSERVATIONist working to conserve the land and the wolves and the natural green resources that God gave us. Unfortunately you’ve been brainwashed by Palin and Bush and McCain who pretend to be religious and use God’s name to influence you. Do you think if Christ came down to this earth today that he would A) want to hunt wolves from an airplane B) want to drill oil (drill baby drill!? SP quote) from the land his Father provided for us? C) Kill Polar bears and take them off the extinct list D) go to WAR with Russia “if necessary” or the Middle East and kill our own (more black men are killed in battle than white by the way) Because of course Bush and Palin want to send the black poor guys over there first. how CHRISTIAN of them.

    Do you think that Christ would call himself a Pit Bull? or encourage Palin’s ignorant uneducated attitude!? (even she admits she cannot name one SINGLE publication that she reads!) She hadn’t even traveled outside her little secluded world and it’s so obvious she hates her fellow man in other countries and is so narrow minded and a WAR monger… She is LIBERAL. the words have all been twisted. Obama is more conservative than she is!

    He wants to END the war, STOP the killings, SAVE the environment. He is a CONSERVATIonist! I am sorry if your church or something has got your mind all twisted. and sadly theirs were probably twisted by someone else. It’s such a shame.

    Even as a Libertarian for YEARS i will say that the Democrats have been more ethical than the huge government NEOCON Republicans of the last administration. Bush ruined our environment, our economy, put lots of people to death (in the WAR, death penalty etc.. THOU SHALL NOT KILL! Do you think God would think the death penalty is right?

    Did I ever say I’m “for” abortion? No I did not. I said there are fringe Republican Christians who are extremists in the anti abortion movement. Just as there are people bombing abortion clinics there are others just as crazy bombing animal experimentation labs. Abortions nor animal experimentation are good things but people shouldn’t be bombing the buildings. This is what I meant by extreme.

    Again, I repeat Bush Palin McLame the whole bunch of them are not conservative! HA! how funny you call me a Liberal! And yourself a conservative? It is not conservative to support someone who doesn’t want to CONSERVE anything!

    It is CONSERVATIVE not to have 14 babies like that psycho Octuplet mom or even 5 like Palin (especially if she can’t care of them) it’s not CONSERVATIVE to cut down forests, kill wolves from planes, drill up our land or any of the other NON conservative things this HEATHEN does.

    God bless you Adrienne,

    Erin Raw foods retreat,

    Your response to me was baffling, and I won’t get side-tracked on your side issues for too long. But very quickly, I never called you a Democrat. Read again. I never mentioned Bush. Read again. I didn’t discuss Sarah Palin’s travels to other countries. Read again. I called your comment concerning “white trash” racist, elitist, and wrong. It is all that. You went off onto all these different areas, which have nothing to do with my response to you. I will not allow my conversation to be crossed. As for the label you attach to yourself, it matters not. A rose by any other name is just as sweet. And the reverse is also true.

  • Erin @

    Yet you did call me a Liberal. I don’t believe I said you called me a Democrat. And you did say that the Democratic party was unethical to the core – hence my reply on that matter and my reference to Democrats.

    Feel free to respond to the rest of it. Sarah Palin being conservative etc…

    JL – there are so many arguments out there against “pro hunting “conservation” groups. They can call themselves conservationists if they want. My mother left World Wildlife Fund after nearly a quarter century because they called themselves conservationists yet hunted. Go do a search . there are plenty of people and organizations out there who laugh at the hunters calling themselves that term. I am one of those people.


  • Erin @

    ps and yes JL you can call me a preservationist too if you like. The labels don’t really matter. And I’ve always maintained IF I ate meat I’d eat free range “hunted’ ducks before eating one from a factory farm. Palin wants to hunt wolves. NO one is eating wolves. They are eating the caribou which the wolves eat. Hence the reason they want to shoot the poor wolves who are doing their natural thing. Because then they can’t get money from the hunters if the caribou are all eaten. They want to shoot them. Not let the wolves eat them. It’s ridiculous. But somehow I think we’ve been through this before.

    Oh and I’m into conserving the land, being conservative and having fewer children (in light of the octuplets mom they had on a scientist on cnn who said one of the worst environmental disasters one can create is having a ton of children (I have none and might have one- not sure yet) I drive a hybrid, used to have a total electric car, working with a company who says they can transform a car into solar. Conserving. using the sun. If you want to call all that liberal by means go ahead :) Labels are silly when you get right down to it. Bottom line. I don’t support environmental destroyers like like Bush and Palin. I am doing my best to support my President… Obama..

    And Adrienne, of course you didn’t mention bush. You said the Republicans will be back in power (to the gal who pointed out how we got Bush out) you mentioned Palin but how could you mention the biggest representation of Republican corruption who just left office? That would be too obvious. It would like be having a discussion about Germany WW II without mentioning Hitler (and yes I do think Bush ranks somewhere down there near him)

    Don’t be so locked into your little partisan world, Erin. If you judge the Republican party (conservatives) based on the biggest mistakes of the Bush administration, can I do the same with your views.

    Heck, can I judge you by the idiots that claim to be your friend?

    Grow up. Get off the partisan bandwagaon, and look at the idea and not those who may misrepresent it.

    I could just pick the lowest common denominator among the liberals (and they get pretty low) and say, “See? Liberalism is dumb.”

    But, I’m not like you.

  • Adrienne

    Erin @RawfoodsRetreat,

    Once again you are mistaken. I never said that Democrats are “unethical to the core,” as you assert. I said, “It is my belief that those people who blindly follow a Party that is antithetical to their core values are yet on the plantation.” As I said before, read again. In other words, the vast majority of Black people, due to our spiritual heritage, do not ascribe to the tenets of the Democratic Party, that the Democratic agenda is antithetical (sharply contrasted with) the core values of most Black people, yet they vote for these people anyway. See, sometimes you can be so intent on making your point that you miss the original point because you’re reading things with your next argument in mind. Unlike you, I would not disparage ALL people of a particular segment, including Democrats. Many, as I said, are blindly following a system because they’ve been bamboozled. Since you, Erin, don’t ascribe to that Party, I would imagine you are not standing up for them.

    Now that we have that cleared up, the right thing for you to do now would be to say, “Oh, Adrienne, now that I’ve looked back, I realize what you were saying. You didn’t call them unethical to the core. I’m so sorry.” But I won’t hold my breath.

    As for Bush and Palin, like I said, I didn’t engage in conversation with you to discuss them. Bush, as our past president is behind us. We’re moving on, prayerfully back to our principles. Palin, as our future president, will be examined through the lense of history. I’m behind her 100%, and I respect your decision not to support her. That’s your decision, and you have a right to it. It’s the trashy stuff that minimizes the ability of others to take you seriously–and it says more about you than it does about the people you’re disparaging.

    Back to my original point, yes, you can make racially insensitive comments to your own kind; thus, your comments would qualify as racist. As a teacher, when I hear Black students call other Black students the “N” word, I jump on it. I don’t care what their color is; they have no right to use that racially charged, insensitive word, which reveals that they have been conditioned toward self-hatred which is acted out in their racist (yes, racist) treatment of those who look like them. The term “white trash,” is elitist also. Who is one person to call another trash? What do you base that on? You base it on the self-deception that you are somehow better than someone else. Calling anyone of any race “trash” is ridiculous. You will continue to argue that point because you want to justify your comment, and I’m calling you on it. I don’ think it matters to you, however. And I’m not going to try to convince you anymore that those words are just plain wrong because “A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.”

  • Erin Raw foods retreat

    Dear Adrienne,

    I’m never afraid to say if I read something too quickly. I had read it a few days earlier (and with hundreds of posts on here I did not go back to look- my mistake) But that’s no excuse. And yes I know the word ;) I can use big words in my posts too if you’d like.. I just try to keep it simple since obviously many people are reading this board. Please tell me how (or why or both) you believe the Democratic “agenda” sharply contrasts with the core beliefs of most black people. I am dying to hear that. And this time I read the post carefully so I know exactly what you said. Doesn’t mean I agree with it, but I’d like to know.

    Here’s my feelings; while true, I don’t ascribe to party I’ve always believed their heart is in the right place compared to the Republican party.

    If you recall you did assume I was a Liberal (I haven’t heard you admit THAT yet either- but again, you’re a bright woman and a good arguer (especially because you keep skipping over the fact you assumed I was a Liberal ;) But that’s ok you’d make an excellent politician – because you could debate as well as they are (or as well as FBR – another prime candidate as a politician) I don’t believe that (m)any politicians (besides maybe Ron Paul or Dennis Kucinich (a democrat who gets very little support or love) are very honest or sincere. I believe these guys are and that’s why they don’t have more followers – because they tell it like it is.

    So again, would love to hear your answer to the question above. I’m always open to listening. I know I get fired up and call the folks white trash.. Is it racist? Or racist if someone who is black calls someone else the N word whether black or not? Hmmm, I don’t know if racist is the right word but elitist? If I call the others white trash am I being elitist in that instance (as you suggest) Sure.. just as the people above who call us much worse names are being elitist or rude or whatever term you want to use. The problem is with web-boards that most of us (not all ;) tend to say things we wouldn’t if we were all sitting around a table together.. For better or for worse :)

    But I am generally curious A) why you thought I was liberal B) why you think that the black people’s values are so different than the Dem party? And C) if you thought there might be an iota of truth in what I said about the “green” people who care about the planet, don’t support hunting, coal, drill baby drilling, fighting, war, deaths of civilians, soldiers, etc.. that they might be more “conservative” than those who support the war, don’t recycle, drive a huge car, have huge tv’s, huge egos to boot ;) are meat eaters, kill wolves for show… is that conservative? I don’t recall and am too tired (nor have time) to re read all the old posts but best my memory serves me I don’t think you answered that.. You just thought my post was over the top and chose not to answer that part… Convenient yes, but since I think I’m being more than fair here (and admitting a fault no less ;) I’d love to hear your feelings on this.

    Again, I maintain that if Christ were to land here on Earth tomorrow he’d fall more into the green friendly animal loving anti war category.. do you disagree?

    and EJ Diaz. You speak of the “idiots” who chose to be my friends? My God I might have said Palin supporters were trashy but I sure didn’t attack anyone’s friends and call them idiots for choosing to be your friends. A bit harsh don’t ya think? You’ve been hunting too many wolves, take a break, and meditate and get back to me…

    (and Phil – you have some good points but you’re might be more radical/nuts than Diaz!)

    PS I thought I should just state that when I say compared to the Republican party- I mean the Republican party of today. Not the party when say Abraham Lincoln was on board. The party (and maybe politics in general) were more honest back then (hence the term Honest Abe I guess.. eh?)

    I think the Republican party today – of off shore oil drilling pit bull identifying wolves shooting Russia hating “America is the only decent country” thinking big government war LOVING Republicans is anything but honest and just put our country in a downward spiral that we might never come out of..

    You know what?

    All this democrats/republicans debate is actually leading nowhere… in my opinion!

    Maybe ‘you Americans’ as a people need to realize once and for all that you’ve not been living in a true democracy (you’re not the only ones obviously). And that you’ve been brainwashed for far too long… and I say this with the utmost respect for you and your country.

    In fact you’ve been very well controlled and manipulated just as if you were living under a dictatorship. I just hope President Obama can change this situation very soon.

    I recently watched “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11″ and although many of you probably hate Michael Moore (I have no idea why), you should all watch these 2 documentaries. Maybe that would open the eyes of many of you. That is if you really want to see the truth…! Believe me that it sheds a lot of light on your lifestyle and it actually poses the main questions regarding the state of the USA and its biggest problems. It really makes you think about things you’ve never thought of before!

    On the other hand, if you prefer to live the blissful little lie which is your daily life in the great USA, then don’t watch them and keep believing your life is under your complete control!!

    It’s your choice! I for one prefer to know the naked and cruel truth and open my eyes, than being controlled and manipulated by others…

    Ever wondered why this crisis emerged all of a sudden? I mean, no one saw it coming?
    And coincidently it happened just when Barack Obama was becoming the favourite to win the elections (forget the polls – I’m talking about what the overall feeling was)? I don’t believe in coincidences! Barack Obama just reflects what people want all over the world – a real change – a fair society where there is no war, no cruelty to animals and humans, no hunger, no environmental destruction, no people left behind and where everyone can fulfil their own destiny (= doing what makes them happy)…
    But the ones who control the world and thus the economy and ultimately our lives, couldn’t have that! Because fulfilled, informed, happy people have a higher level of conciousness and then they wouldn’t be so easily manipulated!!!

    And no, this is not a conspiracy theory, it’s the truth… Just do some research on the internet…
    You can start with this:

  • Erin Raw foods retreat

    Great film whoever. They don’t want to see the truth. I can’t even get my big republican friends to watch documentaries. I’d watch theirs but there aren’t many. because docs are usually pretty smart and there aren’t that many pro republican documentaries. lol. the majority are overwhelmingly showing how bad they are, how unfair fox news and rupert murdoch are, the big polluting corporations they support etc.

    Still waiting for a response from Adrienne. I cannot wait to hear it either. With my actual questions answered as I answered hers!


  • Whoever…

    You know Erin, it’s because of people who prefer to bury their heads in the sand than see what’s really going on around them that our societies worldwide are almost stagnant regarding the evolution process…

    It’s hard to actually see the ‘truth’, because that means one would have to take responsibility for one’s life. It means there would be no one else to blame for one’s problems and unhappiness!!
    And that is too much for many people to handle. Their little world would come tumbling down and all their dogmas would make no sense any more! Someone once said ignorance is a bliss… :)

    Therefore it’s somewhat difficult for people who are a little bit more aware than the rest, to live among them because we can see what they can’t!
    It’s like saying to toddlers that if they go near the fire they’ll get burn. But because they are not aware of it, they still do it and eventually end up getting burnt!
    The difference is that zombified people, as a result of their ignorance, hurt others as well …

    We also wrongly ‘evaluate’ people for what they have and for what they do as a living! We should ‘evaluate’ them for what they are instead…!

    Oh well, what can one do!?

    Whoever – America is not a Democratic nation, it is a Republic, with bits of democracy overlapping. Where are you from? If you can send so much blame our way, you must be from a great place.

    Erin – I know you don’t like labels, but you should read up more on Conservation vs. Preservation. Shooting wolves, from a plane or on foot, is a Conservation strategy – managing the Earth’s resources, in a responsible/sustainable way, for the long-term benefit of humans. Which in the Alaskan argument, means Caribou.

    Labels are important, only because they are the best way for us to refer back to the famous essays of old. From what I’ve read of your posts, you’d fall under the Muir/Leopold category, whereas I find myself agreeing more frequently with Pinchot’s ideals. Not that Pinchot would necessarily agree with aero-management… but the Fish & Game of the 50 states is a Conservation team.

    The arguments of Preservationists usually fall in line with Animal Rights, whereas the arguments of Conservationists can go hand in hand with Animal Welfare.

    Be aware that there’s a fanatical racist evangelical extreme right fringe internet group of trollers (as many as 30 at a time) who travel in packs to any sites that have comments that are anti-Palin. They are all childish fans from They’ve been banned from other sites such as the Anchorage Daily News for one! They have pre-existing phrases they copy/paste over & over. You can tell all the stories they visit having to do with Sarah Palin…they comment at the same time & then all give each other recommendations…as if that’s going to change any ones opinons lol. They are a bunch of right wing ultra nuts who have been driven insane hahahahahahahah!

  • Democrats suck
  • carrie

    Shooting wolves from a helicopter is an inefficient and ineffective conservation effort. Really, some rich folk thought it would be fun to hunt from a helicopter, and have used this veneer of conservation to try and avoid public outcry. Palin’s an absolute nightmare for animal rights of any kind.

    So what I’ve gathered from all these posts is that people who support Obama (or democrats in general) have been “drinking the kool-aid”, whereas Palin supporters who just spout the same rhetoric over and over are… what? Somehow different?

  • William

    I agree 1000% with Steptoe & the rest!! Millions and millions LOVE LOVE LOVE Sarah….she is the ONLY hope for America. She is our bright and shining star beaming down on the USA from the north. I just can’t wait till she gets in the white house and shows everyone just how a country should be run and how wrong it was for THAT ONE to be there. GO SARAH/LIMBAUGH 2012! WE LOVE YOU SARAH!
    for the REAl truth go to

    Janaene Garofalo is a really great person, and thinker, and citizen. She’s on-point, and brave, and a real intellect.

    Janeane (what kind of name is that?) is an undereducated, over-opinionated loser. She is bitter, just like First “Lady” O, but for different reasons (middle aged, short, unattractive) vs. MO (middle aged, hulking, awkward, unattractive).

    Her comments about the “racist” tea parties ignore reality. We are tired of paying for the denizens of “urban culture”, who are intellectually lazy and perhaps even physiologically deficient.

    Do us all a favor, Janeane, and try to accept that you are “over” with some grace. If you can’t say something nice, and intelligent, better to say nothing at all.


  • Joe

    Jeanine Garofalo = not talented, not intelligent, not attractive, …

    I guess you can understand why she is so angry; but who cares.

    24 will suffer… I never want to see her and will not watch it again

  • James from Australia

    Dear Miss (no doubt) Janeane Garofalo, excuse me but I am at the football, it is half time and i’m waiting to be served a Big Mac in a styrofoam box, which I am of course going to throw on the ground when i’m finished. After that i’m going to the shooting range to blow cuddly teddy bears to smithereens with my mates, after that more beer at the pub, talkin to hot chicks (hopin to get one in the sack for a bit a you know what…do as ya told girly) then fall asleep straight away. Wake up demand breakfast of the little woman and get back to the gun factory where I work.

    Your coming to Melbourne I hear. I live in Melb and you should know that you are not welcome. I guess I have a genuine problem with the way you talk it smacks of an anti intellectualism which is well dare I say disturbing.

    Neuroscience? As a bitter, angry and violent middle aged woman, I imagine you probably do understand what is involved after the amount of psychiatric help you must have received over the years.

  • John Q. Adams

    She is a sorry excuse for a person. She and her extreme liberal entertainment friends need to move to a country that better suit them, say Cuba or Venezuela. That way they could feel better when the gov. dictates their every move. Then we would see how long it would take them to go Rep.
    The Socialistic Party is no longer needed when you have the Democratic Party.

  • Philip

    J G,

    The brains of conservatives are wired differently for sure you are actually correct.
    Besides lacking the mirror neurons (google it) that trigger empathy conservatives also lack the personality trait called open to experience. see here..

    However that said and I love you Janeane but the brains of meat eaters are different from vegans. Meat eaters even if liberal…. lack mirror neurons as well.



  • Pablo Wolfe

    She is a reprehensible, mindless, shrieking idiot. Her smug indifference to the truth is going to hurt her career and it should.

  • gen

    Yep, this had to have been talked about on fox news or something for all these conservative wackos to show up here.
