FreedomWorks vs the Party of…uh…Tolerance…or something


This post comes with a warning: this is sick and sad and filled with obscenities. The calls and emails are from those on the Left who are angry that a voice-over actor was fired by Geico, who was angry about something that never happened.

Meanwhile, have a listen (without the children in the room) to the party of peace and tolerance.

Sometimes you have a headline that makes the rest of the story superfluous, but here’s the background. Actor Lance Baxter, otherwise known as “D.C. Douglas,” currently known as the man who informs you how much Geico can save you on car insurance, left a message last month with FreedomWorks in which he asked the group how many “mentally retarded” people it had on staff and what it would do when a tea partyer “killed someone.” On April 14, FreedomWorks put his voicemail online.

This hasn’t been a great day for the Left as far as viral video goes.

First, Jim Hoft interviews a little girl reacting to having the riot squad called on her.

Now, FreedomWorks is airing the vile messages that Progressives have been leaving on their voicemail, mixed in with images of Progressives marching around with very disturbing and racist signs which they use to attack Republicans and Conservatives.

Real classy.
