You may have heard that voice over actor Lance Baxter, also known as D.C. Douglas, lost his contract with Geico after leaving a voicemail for FreedomWorks in which he asked, “the percentage of people that are mentally retarded who are working for FreedomWorks and who are following it.”
Now some people on the left feel quite strongly about poor Mr. Baxter and his loss of prospects so they called FreedomWorks to voice their protests the best way they knew how.
Tabitha Hale was tasked with the pleasant job of sifting through the voice mails, and she kindly put together a video so we can better understand how the leftists think and just how hurt and upset they are by the injustice done to poor Mr. Baxter.
WARNING: Graphic language. This video is not for the faint-hearted or prudish.
In typical leftist fashion, rather than, you know, blaming his own bad behavior for the lost of his contract, Baxter blamed FreedomWorks – of course he did! – and also pretended to be oh-so-offended by the calls he received from “Dick Armey’s Army of Dicks.” Yeah. Like that’s not offensive but try not to be distracted by that bit of juvenile “humor,” which I’d expect from a 17 year old but not an adult.
Listen to the calls Baxter received and compare them to the calls received at FreedomWorks. I think you’ll notice that the voice mails in one of the videos are “a bit” more vulgar than those in the other.
(I’m not trying to excuse bad behavior on the right and any large movement will attract some people who would be better left at home. Some of the signs depicted in the video are in very poor taste but others are clearly racist only if you view the world through black-and-white-colored glasses and others are clearly more bluster than threat. It’s also good to be aware that Obama isn’t the first U.S. President to be compared to Hitler. Some U.S. Presidents have even been protested with signs wishing for or even depicting their deaths! Imagine!)
Here’s a video portfolio of Lance Baxter’s work, just in case you’re in a position to help him out with some work. Or you want to boycott companies who work with him. Either one.
