Larry Elder: house Negro
Posted by McQ
Larry Elder relates some interesting anecdotes from his attendence at the Democrat National Convention.
It begins with an interview with Air America's Janeane Garofalo who apparently assumed that Elder, being a black guy, must be a fellow traveler. It would seem that she as quite surprised and shocked when she found that wasn't true:
For four days, the Democratic Party put on its quadrennial scare-old-people-and-minorities party. Democrats, of course, rely on the 90-plus percent monolithic black vote. Thus, a black "non-liberal" poses a direct threat to the party's national prospects. When Garofalo agreed to a sit-down, she clearly knew nothing about me. When I defended the administration on the War on Terror, a frustrated Garofalo started to get up and leave, muttering, "This show sucks." After I called her a coward, however, she sat back down and finished the segment.
After our interview, Garofalo began broadcasting her radio show on "Air America." Several of my callers -- I was still on the air at the time -- said that Garofalo called me a "house Negro" and a "fascist."
Yes, the torch bearers of the party of diversity and tolerance call someone who disagrees a "house negro" and a "facist".
But that's not the end of the story. Garofalo then invites Elder on her Air America show. Elder promptly accepts. Apparently that wasn't expected and the invitation was retracted.
...Garofalo's people suddenly decided they could not fit me into their schedule! Here's my speculation: Garofalo assumed that I feared appearing on her show. She extended an invitation in hopes that I would refuse. She then would go on the air, call me a coward and accuse me of fear in the face of hostility. Well, I called her bluff, and somebody backed down.
So, on my show I discussed the invitation/retraction and accused her of fear. Then, another one of Garofalo's people came by, re-extended the invitation, and I again promptly accepted.
Long story short, he went on the show, listened to the charges fly and attempted to rebutt them. Read the whole thing. Its interesting and appears to be typical of the abuse blacks who don't agree to remain on the Democrat plantation face.
