Geico Voice Guy Calls Tea Partiers Retards; Fired

Score one for our side — the Constitution’s side.
H/t beloved FellowshipOfMinds member Will!
Greg Pollowitz of National Review Online writes that the Geico Insurance voice-over guy was fired for calling Tea Partiers retards. Come to think of it, isn’t calling someone a retard hate speech?

Lance Baxter, aka DC Douglas, aka The Creep

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.
Today, Douglas reports he’s been dropped from GEICO’s campaign. His dramatic news release is here; he claims to have been motivated by “the recent gay and racial slurs slung by Tea Party members at Congressman Barney Frank and Representative John Lewis during the Health Care Reform Weekend,” and says he’s “open to any attorneys taking on this case pro bono.”

I guess Geico figured that the voice-over job was so easy, even a caveman could do it.

Aahh so true Steve but can you imagine the Geico jokes that are already starting!?
“This is the money you could have earned staying at Geico by keeping your fat mouth shut and knowing the facts”
Yeah that was lame but there are a ton of great ones out there!

If you get fired, can you draw unemployment benefits? I sure hope not! I don’t want my tax dollars going to support this man.

I’m just surprised GEICO fired his ass, as GEICO is an acronym for [Government] Employees Insurance Company.
I wouldn’t buy insurance from those Gomers even if you pointed a gun to my head, just like I would not buy a car from Government Motors.
They will not pay claims unless you sue them.
