Actor/dumbass Lance Baxter aka “D.C. Douglas”, was recently canned from the job as Geico voiceover person, thanks to a lovely message he left on the voicemail of Freedom Works; a non-profit organization that recruits, educates, trains and mobilizes hundreds of thousands of volunteer activists to fight for less government, lower taxes, and more freedom. http://www.freedomworks.org/
Lance doesn’t like those concepts, and let his feelings be known:
A voice-over actor — best known for telling viewers they can save 15 percent or more on car insurance — says he lost his gig doing Geico commercials after leaving a voicemail with a group that organizes Tea Party events to ask how many of its employees are “mentally retarded.”
Los Angeles actor D.C. Douglas in a press release said he was dropped from the upcoming Geico “Shocking News” campaign after leaving a message with the press shop at FreedomWorks, a Washington-based organization led by former Republican leader Dick Armey that has been at the forefront of the Tea Party movement.
“I called as a private citizen to make a complaint,” Douglas said of the message he left with FreedomWorks. “Racism and homophobia are my Achilles heal, but unfortunately my message included inappropriate words and I am sorry for that. However, telling their members to harass my employer to get me fired is an egregiously disproportionate response to my actions.”
Except that “racism and homophobia” are accusations fabricated by desperate leftwing wackjobs, to discredit any movement that won’t kowtow to Obamessiah.
FreedomWorks Chief Executive Matt Kibbe posted audio of the phone call online. In the message, Douglas claimed to be working on a written piece, and said he wanted to know the percentage of “mentally retarded” employees at FreedomWorks. He also asked its policy on how they will spin the news when “your members actually kill someone.”
The anti-Tea Party douchebags have committed numerous acts of violence. The latest of which, involves a felonious assault on two of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s aides outside a Republican fundraiser in Louisiana. Of this and other leftwing radical crimes, Lance is blissfully ignorant.
……In the release, Douglas says he doesn’t plan to spend any money to sue FreedomWorks, but he’d like to find an attorney to sue pro-bono for him.
The word “retarded” doesn’t even a warrant a fraction of the PC hissy fits that ensue. I’m more concerned with the double standard practiced by leftwing media hacks who excuse the violence and obscenities by the people and groups they admire. Like the Democratic party, Hollywood halfwits, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, the DailyKos, Paul Krugman, Frank Rich, E.J. Dionne, Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow; the whole gang of useful idiots.
He wants to sue Freedom Works for disclosing a message that he composed and left on a public format. I’m sure some ACLU puke will crawl out from under their rock and volunteer to support this assclown.
