Is Jon Stewart Racist?
Fox News ^ | June 28, 2011 | Bernie Goldberg

Posted on 06/28/2011 10:25:59 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

Let’s say a white guy goes on television, puts on an exaggerated "Amos ‘n Andy" “black voice” and proceeds to make fun of a black man whose politics the white guy doesn’t like. Actually, let’s say he goes beyond merely making fun of the black man. Let’s say he tries to make the black man sound downright stupid. Does that make the white guy a racist?

The correct answer is … it depends.

If the white guy is Rush Limbaugh and the black man is Barack Obama, then of course the white guy is a racist – according to liberals.

No. Its impossible for a liberal to be racist - ask one. Only conservatives are racist. (Sarcasm)

You know, I don’t think this really matters any longer.

We know how the left reacts to things that must comply with their strident and emotional pretzel logic about race and politics.

We ain’t gonna change them.

We need to keep defeating them.

In addition, Mr. Stuart’s audience is quite small. My family is larger.

No. Just a total @sshole! Like Herman Cain said - Stewart is not a raciest he just hates conservative black men.

Absolutely he’s racist! Any Black American who doesn’t stay on the Democrate/Liberal plantation must be horse whipped like the slaves of old! Stewart is the typical liberal who thinks all blacks should think in lock-step with them! How dare a black man stray from the Plantation! Don’t they know their place? (sarc)

Imagine if Rush Limbaugh had used the same voice and “comedy” in mocking Obama

The libtards would STILL be screaming and holding torchlight vigils demanding he resign lead by protest by the “reverend” Al and Jesse Jackson and the black panthers and whoever else they could whip into a mob

Oh... and Jon Stewart is only against Hermain Cain because he is a black man.

Stewart attacked a Conservative Black, so he is OK. Had he done the same to a Liberal one there would be Hell to pay!

Jon Stewart and his Democrat, liberal, left-wing cronies are hitting the panic button. They cannot defend POTUS Obama, are seeing Obama going down the flushing toilet, so.....they only tools they have left in their trick bag is character destruction and racism against GOP Black folks.

He’s probably not. The real racists in this country are the black population. Something like 98% of them voted for the black looking candidate in the last election. If 98% of the white voters voted McCain in the same election, McCain would have won by the largest majority in history. White people, like Jon Stewart, helped Obama get elected. Many white people voted for Obama. For 98% of blacks to vote for the “black” candidate, I would start there for who the racists really are.

That’s just what Mr. Obama is going to do in the election. So far, he sure can’t run on his record. Therefore, the only thing remaining is character assassination and scare the old people.

And every conservative talker and politician should be saying “Stewart is only against Cain because Cain’s black” everytime they’re in front of a camera. But the politician’s “McCain type” response will be “I don’t know what’s in Mr. Stewart’s heart”.

Stewart is a racist and I am OUTRAGED. I call on him to resign or have all of his sponsors boycotted. If that doesn't work have Jesse Jackson and Sharpton lead a march to Stewart's house and camp out on his front lawn until he does resign.

Stewart, like most libs, is without substance, and without any ethical code. He is fake from his name right down to his personality, such as it is. The beauty of it is that he has to live with himself 24X7X365. What a dismal existence that must be.

“...conservatives should do what liberals have been doing for years – they should play fast and loose with the word “racist.” They should start calling every liberal who criticizes Herman Cain – or any other conservative black man – a racist. Not because it’s true, but precisely because it’s a lie.

Let’s see how those superior liberals feel when they’re the ones being slandered, when they’re the ones being maligned as racists simply because they oppose a black man’s conservative policies...”

—Do it. And do it often.

“The difference is Cain is a black man with authentic slave blood.Obama is not.”

And don’t forget: Obama’s Dunham ancestors were slave-owners.

You’re absolutely right. In today’s America the worst thing you can call someone is a racist. And generally, the one who is called a racist immediately ties himself or herself in knots trying to prove it’s not true.

The main difference between today’s marxists and yesterday’s national socialists in America, is who they want to demean, lynch and enslave for power. Both hate the constitution for it stands in their way.

National socialists dominated the DNC in history and today Marxists dominate the DNC. Rinos are their helpers.

Stewart is a typical white lib who screams race at every turn in order to mask his own racial prejudices. White libs are the biggest hypocrites when it comes to race and religion (e.g. Muslims)

I disagree, it does still matter, big time. The difference is we need to stop letting them set the agenda and retaliate instead. Turn the tables, ask: Are you a “racer”? A race pimp? Playing the race card again huh? Why don’t you give up your own job for “diversity” or “affirmative action”? Make them defend themselves, they will look inherently foolish bcoz they are inherently wrong . . . about everything.

This as all a plot by Fox News and the Tea Party to mis-mark me as a racist... I am in lock step with any Black or African-American who follows the Liberal Democrat Party Policy and as to those Conservative Republican Uncle Toms, take them out back, chain them to a stout post and whip them over and over again and again until they see the one true, Liberal Democrat light!

Now, that's not racist nor biased, that as pure American... as the New York Times, Media Matters, MoveOn.org or the CBS Evening News.


Hey, if I can not say anything nice about Jon, I just keep my mouth shut. However, other parts of me... speak for themselves!

There is no “Amos n’Andy” voice in that one.
