Mad Men’s Jon Hamm: Tea Party Uses Racist ‘Code’ Words
September 20, 2010
(ChattahBox Entertainment News)—Sexy actor Jon Hamm, who plays the complicated Don Draper on AMC’s Mad Men, is not fooled by the tea party leaders’ dog whistle code words, used to attack President Obama. Socialist, Marxist, Nazi, Kenyan, illegal alien, are all just other ways to express their fear and distrust of our first black president, without using the N-word. Yup, Hamm says the tea party is racist.
Hamm made his remarks during an appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher.
Maher asked, “Anybody think this tea party is racist?
Hamm along with the panel, discussed the former disgraced House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s offensive rhetoric, saying Obama is engaging in “Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior,” in a zombie-like fashion in the spirit of his socialist anti-colonialism Kenyan father, he described, as a Lao tribesman.
“That’s what it’s all sort of couched in– this secret agenda. And when they say or Gingrich, says he’s a Lao Tribesman it’s all sort of code,” said Hamm.
Hamm added, “Like we need to take back America– like who are we taking it back from? “I’m pretty sure … ‘we’ as Americans still have America. I don’t know who ‘we’ need to take it back from.”
