Jon Stewart Tears Apart Fox News’ Ferguson Coverage: You ‘Have No F**king Idea, Do You?’ (Video)

stewart-hannityOh, how I’ve missed Jon Stewart. With August being a notoriously slow month for news, especially politics, many political pundits take time off during the last few weeks of summer. And normally that’s a pretty safe bet. But not this August.

As we all know, for the last few weeks, the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri by police officer Darren Wilson has dominated the news. To call what went on in Ferguson following the shooting “chaos” might actually be a bit of an understatement.

Well, Stewart came back from vacation with a vengeance, absolutely crushing Fox News’ often ridiculous Ferguson coverage.

He starts off the segment by accepting the “Ferguson challenge,” which includes tear gas and pepper spray in place of a bucket of ice.

But after that he went right after Fox News. He started off by mocking Bill O’Reilly for “coming back early” because he was so outraged… at the way the media had covered the shooting.

“Yes! That is the outrage,” Stewart said mockingly. “The shooting of Michael Brown and any lack of transparency from the police department responsible for said incident is outrageous – in how it has been reported.”

He then showed various clips of different Fox News hosts and contributors showing “outrage” over the fact that apparently the media hasn’t been more friendly toward Darren Wilson.

Stewart then slammed Sean Hannity’s ridiculous comments pertaining to his encounters with being pulled over by the police, saying, “You really do have no f*cking idea, do you?”

“Do you not understand that life in this country is inherently different for white people and black people?” Stewart continued.

Now, normally I’d transcribe more of the segment, except I’d essentially be typing out every word of the last 4 minutes and 26 seconds because everything he said was perfect.

He absolutely hammered Fox News for trying to downplay the racial issues we have in this country, while mocking how every single year the network spends two months going on and on about their made up “war on Christmas.” Suggesting that Fox News seems to be tired of hearing about racism, but they never seem to get tired of pushing their fake “outrage” over the non-existent “war on Christmas.”

Stewart ended the segment by saying, “You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how f*cking exhausting it is living it.”

If you have a few minutes, I highly suggest you check out the entire video. It was easily one of the most impassioned, and brilliant, segments I’ve seen from Stewart so far this year.

    Life is different for black people than it is for white people and therefore one should always be on the side black people no matter what? Sounds very liberalesque/irrational to me. The fact that Stewart consistently and generously laces his dialogue with the F-bomb tells you just how sophisticated his producers believe his audience to be.

    • Mainah

      Is that your comprehension on Stewart’s piece? As for F-bomb’s … give me a break. As if you’ve never used it, laughed at a joke with one in it, talked to buddies that use it … really now. The reality of what Stewart said is undeniable. The people who are all screaming race card were all white and all on Fox. Try stronger coffee and watch it again. Note what he is addressing and to whom, that will help you understand the clip and stop you from using false equivalencies. Have a great day! 😉

      • Jim Bean

        Are you saying the Ferguson protesters are not ‘screaming race card’ or are you saying they are all white? Heavy dosages of the F-bomb appeal only to the intellectually unsophisticated.

      • Mainah

        Again, false equivalencies are not your friend. Try rereading what I wrote.

      • Jim Bean

        I think you wrote, “The people who are all screaming race card were all white and all on Fox.” How is my equivalency false?

      • Mainah

        Um, did we watch the same clip? And do you follow conversations properly? Again, have a cup of coffee and watch the clip again. Your statement, which was indeed false equivalence to Stewart’s piece and the piece was how obvious it is that all the people screaming race baiting are white. Why do I have to explain the clip to you? Do you even know what “race card” means? They, the protesters, aren’t screaming race card … they are screaming STOP RACISM.
        Hope that clears that up for you. Oh, and again … liar, liar pants on fire with the denial of the f-bomb ad hominem attack pointed at a general direction of what you assume to be “liberalesque(not a word)/irrational (another false equivalency, again not your friend Jim. Really.) audience that watch his show. Shows lack of clarity and insight on your part, Jim. Or … you could be just an epic troll. Either way, have a mighty fine day! 😉

      • Jim Bean

        Really? I quote exactly what you said to defend you’re attack on what I said, and you try to deflect the whole exchange back to what Stewart said? “Deflection.” “Desperation.” (Both are actual words.)

      • Mainah

        Those two words are, yes. Deflection and desperation are indeed words which you seem to be well acquainted with. You practice both often from what I can see.

      • Russell Warren

        As does our president… Now with Congress on Recess, he wants to sign into a climate treaty without the approval of 2/3 of the Senate as required by this little thing called the Constitution… Don’t look at the man behind that curtain! lol

      • Mainah

        Wrong thread.

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        wow— another troll spinning out of topic!!

      • RickFlash

        “Defend against ‘your’ claim” is proper English. No wonder you didn’t understand the piece.

      • Kamen

        Why are you paying this Intellectual Dishonest idiot any mind? For someone to portray himself as so sophisticated in his thinking he sure has a mental block when it comes to the concept of Race. Why waste your time!!!

      • Mainah

        I’m new to this thread and well … I was drinking my coffee and reading the article, watched the clip and then saw his comment. Grabbed a stick and poked it to see if it was a troll, someone who just hadn’t had enough coffee yet, someone who was drunk, or just a jackass.
        I got my answer.

      • Pipercat

        Naah, he’s one of our Cliffy Claven’s here on the site. As you can see, he rarely responds to my replies. Call it Luccese adverse syndrome. Those pointy ends really hurt!

      • Mainah

        Interesting line of thinking he’s got going on. I wonder if you pretend to throw something if he chases after it?

      • Pipercat

        He’s the champion of non-responsibility and condescension. So, in essence, he’s not a chaser; he usually plays with stones….

      • Mainah

        I guess I’ll have to read some comment history. His is open which I probably should have checked first. But, I hadn’t had enough coffee this morning. Usually, and this was my bad for assuming, when I read comments like that they have locked profiles so you can’t see what their about. I prefer to leave mine open because it seems kind of silly to keep it private.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        After reading Jim Bean’s past comments it is very clear that he is a white racist that only gobbles up what Fox News has to offer him, only discusses any sort of politics with friends of the like mind, and anything that falls short of that is a liberal “agenda” and is 100% false. Pretty correct assumption wouldnt you say?

      • Mainah

        He seems to have a real limited repertoire of what he believes is “liberal”, which is anything that isn’t republican and seemed to be Stormfront material. He’d probably seem like a MENSA candidate to them. I wonder if he’s heard of us independents?
        I didn’t get to far into his comment history to see if he’s just an Old White GOP’er or a far right wing nut. I had stuff to do but he didn’t seem too nasty. I can deal with that. I’ve seen some really nasty and vile postings from some people and that just annoys the shit out of me. Parrots though … ah, just stuff a cracker in their mouths and your good to go! 😉

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        add alcohol to jims equation and U are 100% correct- ive dealt w him substantially

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        when I slap jimbo silly with FACTS he stops replying

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        jimbo is somewhat dishonest; Ive dealt w him a while– he is an older guy who drinks and ” archie bunkers” through his stultified existence.

      • Pipercat

        Actually, he uses nested fallacies to create his fabulous straw man arguments.

      • Mainah

        Great! Let’s play Wickerman! I think I have a match around here somewhere. 3:)

      • Pipercat

        She goes by, Aunt Sally….

      • Mainah

        BAAHAAHAAHAA!!!!!

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        praise (21st century white regressive ) JEEEESUS!

      • Brett Stewart

        we’re all un-fucking-sophisticated in here.

      • Mainah

        So fuckin’ true.

      • Jim Bean

        Eloquence on parade.

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        I use it in passing for COLORFUL language (appropriately) and YOU JAMES of all people should readily recognize that I am indeed NOT intellectually UN sophisticated
        =====================================
        care to debate this here & now?

      • You’re nothing but a pathetic liberal loser.

    • Pipercat

      Very good Jimbo, condescension is one of your best qualities. Glad you didn’t let the gang down!

    • sfwm.son

      annnnnnd ZOOM. right over jim’s pointy little head—the entire piece—right over his head.

      • Mainah

        Oh, so he’s normally this obtuse? awesome.

    • Jo Clark

      Could you be any more obtuse? Did the F bombs offend your dainty sensibilities?

      • Jim Bean

        It doesn’t offend my sensibilities. I only remark that its a red flag signaling what level of dialogue his producers think the target audience is geared toward.

      • Mainah

        Ok Dr. Jim.

      • Nathan Frigerio

        Sure, but apply that same logic to the Joseph Goebbels type rhetoric coming from the right.

      • Jim Bean

        You lost me. Goebbels was a Nazi socialist who employed many of the propaganda tactics currently used by Democrats to keep their voters in lock-step. He was anti-Semitic and perhaps that’s where you see a link. If the right is planning a holocaust-type extermination of the black population, I’ve not heard anything about it.

      • Adam Smith

        Change the word Democrat to Republican and you nailed it. And no, the link isn’t the Holocaust. It’s the bat shit crazy crap that comes out of most conservatives. You know, people who think armed whites supporting Bundy are patriots, but freak the fuck out at the thought of armed Black Panthers.

    • NancyEH

      Nine minutes of JS trying to get you – and others like you – to understand how life feels to black Americans, and all you got out of it was “we should always be on the side of black people…”? He said no such thing, nor implied any such thing. Take a step back, put yourself in the shoes of the black reporter he references at the end and watch it again.

      • Pipercat

        His feet are too small…

      • Kamen

        Among other things, which I suspect is the real problem!!!

      • Jim Bean

        I try to – and think I do, to whatever degree possible – understand what life feels like to black Americans. But neither my feelings or your feelings can be converted to change. Any possible solutions lie in how the black community addresses the problems they face. Pointing back towards slavery and Jim Crow to defend against criticism of the anti-social behaviors (of some) occurring today is not a solution. Moreover, it makes it worse because it suggests a determination not to take personal responsibility. Discrimination is the end product of the associations people naturally draw (and non-black people today are not drawing them because they’ve been influenced by slavery or Jim Crow). You need to change the associations. Trying to marginalize them is a fool’s errand.

      • Pipercat

        … and yet again, another straw man.

      • Jim Bean

        False equivalencies, straw men, and racism. The trump cards the left play in every debate.

      • Pipercat

        Ad lapidem nonsense. Playing with stones, as usual!

      • Nathan Frigerio

        Jim. I see your point. However, dumping on liberalism, is not the way to go. First, what is the root word for liberal? LIBERTY So, with that in mind, do make your arguments more concise. The responsibility of everyone is to vote. If I had my way, everyone collecting some form of gov. welfare, would be required to vote. That, or no more freebies. The horseshit parties we have now would have to be moderate.

      • Jim Bean

        Thank you. My perception of what a Liberal is runs the curve from Kristen Powers – who generally will acquiesce to a rational argument – to Allan Colmes who will heroically attempt to invalidate the obvious in order to maintain his anchor point. Judging from the comments I read on these threads, most Liberals – or at least the ones who speak up – are of the Colmes variety. O’Reilly’s campaign may make people uncomfortable but I do not believe its motivated by malice or racism. We’ve deteriorated to the point where any criticism of any black person is dismissed as racism in order to stop the debate. That’s a bad and ignorant place to call home.

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        that’s pretty good also james,,,,,

      • I hope one of these boonies come up to you and play the “Knockout game” with you and sucker punch you right in your fucking ugly face.

      “Life is different for black people than it is for white people and

      Seriously? That’s your understanding? …and conservatives wonder5 why we don’t respect them.. smh

    • Sandy Greer

      Lord knows you’re not my favorite person, Jim Bean. We’ve had plenty of arguments, and you wouldn’t give me an avatar when I asked nicely.

      But I hate to see what transpired here. Where Lefties once championed the Underdog – now they hunt in packs.

      I bet you’re surprised to see me post this. But if not – think about that avatar. 😉

  • Walt Hannon

    Jon Stewart -to me-is a clown.

      • Adam Smith

        That’s not my finger.

      • Pipercat

        Bwahahahahhahahaaaaa!!!!

      • Chomper Lomper Tawee

        Absolutely!! Your comments always make me laugh out loud.

    • Mainah

      Good thing his show is on The Comedy Channel? eh? Unlike Fox “News” which isn’t really news some people say.

      • Chomper Lomper Tawee

        Fox News-is a -“Circus full of Clowns”-…

      • Mainah

        LMAO!!!!

      • Jim Bean

        Which network are you relying upon to hound the powers-that-be to get to the bottom of the IRS/TeaParty affair? I want to take them for test drive to see whether they (and you) are credible.

        Oh,yes. I like to know what you progressives are thinking.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        ITS SATIRE DUMBASS!!!! And yet, still more factual than anything you take as “true news”

      • Steve Small

        tell me, is it the thinking or the facts that upset you so?

      • Steve Small

        because you’d probably find them both threatening

      • Kamen

        Easy. Everything you’re unable to intellectually grasp! Which is plenty!

    • Andrew A Nyberg

      The satire news of John Stewart is more factual than anything on Faux News.

    • An unfunny clown. That stupid dead pan Jew face is so old.

  • Brett Stewart

    When I grow up, I wanna be Jon Stewart!

    • Jim Bean

      Once you’re grown up, you’re too old to be him.

      • Pipercat

        No one will ever be older than you…

  • Ron

    Rich, white New York celebrity Jon Stewart understands the Black Experience– because he is hip! He can justifiably put down stupid white folks who are fucking clueless, unlike him. He also understands that poor/lower middle class whites = stupid white trash = fucking racists keeping blacks down. He also knows what its like to be a cop on the street because he has balls and if he wasn’t doing his TV show he’d definitely be out serving the public.

    • Steve Small

      no, professor. he has empathy and he’s thoughtful, that’s why he’s ”hip”

      • Ron

        yeah he has empathy for anyone who buys into the liberal screed. Everyone else is a fucking asshole. Also its easy for him to be “empathetic” and say nice things. JUST FUCKING WORDS. Such a nice guy huh…What ACTION is he taking? is he sharing some of those millions with the poor he says he cares so much about?

      • TyC

        your totally getting beside the point, Ron you don’t have to be something to understand how bad it is, thats the problem with people, if its not happening to you can never put yourself in their shoes, say if i worked at a restaurant and you came in and i was like “fuck that white person, I’m not helping them” how would you feel knowing that I’m not singling you out because you have a shitty personality or i just don’t like your fews but just because your complexion is white..??? its not a good feeling being judged on something you have no control over.

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        more than the white trash CHRISTIAN regressives on FOX “news” and certainly more than your smarmy pestilent ass

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        Hes hip because he sees through Fox News bullshit and makes fun of them for it. People that take offense to what Stewart says are just upset that everything he says is true and they cant handle that because of their cognitive dissonance.

  • Ron

    Hey Jim Bean. Not a good idea to actually try and use logic or common sense in your message below. NEVER debate with a liberal, unless you want to make an enemy. After 2 seconds they simply give up the debate, and get personal. Forget about the free exchange of ideas, forget about tolerance for other viewpoints, forget about expanding one’s mind. Liberals viscerally know that logic and reason are not their friends, so they replace them with emotion whenever possible, which is always.

    • Pipercat

      Love how you put the conditional statement at the end! Almost nuanced!!

      • Ron

        Hey thank you–very kind!

      • Pipercat

        Well, I did say, almost….

    • Andrew A Nyberg

      so you are basically saying that anyone with liberal viewpoints is wrong because they disagree with you and refuse to just let you win any argument? Seems logical.

      • Ron

        oh man…you see what I have to put up with? NO! that’s how LIBERALS think!
        I am willing to debate/discuss any topic, always with respect for other viewpoints. If, furthermore, I am shown to be wrong, then I will always admit it AND thank the other person for expanding my comprehension. That’s how the free exchange of ideas should work by the way.

      • Nathan Frigerio

        Okay, how can one defend the right, which is supported heavily by the rich, then hypocritically aligns itself with religion? Using social wedge issues to distract the voters from what truly matters, money.

      • Ron

        will you get it though your head.. all the Wall Street billionaires, hedge fund managers, George Soros types–they donate billions to the LEFT. Both sides, right and left, are corrupt, both sides are invested in the system, both sides are laughing at you and me. If you think one side is evil and the other side is virtuous you are delusional. The only thing good about the system is if you compare it to the alternative. Look at other countries and I assure you, you will be a hyper-patriot.

      • Adam Smith

        I don’t think one side is evil. I think it’s bat shit crazy. That would be your side.

      • Kamen

        Condescending even in explanation. Wow, it just doesn’t stop.

    • Nathan Frigerio

      Cons have no ideas, that’s the point of being conservative, no change, everything is great the way it is.

      • Kamen

        The way it WAS. When it WAS great for them and horrendous for others. “..take our Country back”. Hahahaha.

      • Ron

        I don’t know any conservatives who like things the way they are now. And if you are in the younger generation, then thanks to liberal policies protecting the spoiled baby-boomer generation, you are basically screwed for the rest of your life. You will never have the quality of life the boomers have. Instead you will slave away so that they can enjoy their Medicare and social security, which will not be there when you reach that age.

  • Samantha Robertson

    Thank you Jon Stewart. ..thank you!

  • How fucked up is it that we get the truth and FACTS on a fucking comedy channel and nothing but fear, hatred and YES, racism on the (fox) news network?

    • Ron

      At least Fox puts liberal commenters on their shows so that both sides can be presented and ideas can be discussed. Unlike MSNBC which spews and stokes class and racial hatred by a bunch of lying hypocrites like Al Sharpton and that pussy Chris Hayes who got his ass beat over in Ferguson, haha.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        Fox only puts on low key liberal commentators and then when they are given the chance to discuss their viewpoint they are rudely cut off and screamed at. Get a clue.

      • Ron

        Oh I see, so its just like a fix, right? they only put token liberals on there, set them up so they can be knocked down? you are so smart to see through this charade. I bet the liberals you are talking about wouldn’t appreciate that however.

      • Pipercat

        Guess you never heard of Bob Beckel!

      • Ron

        He seems like a good man but I am sure he is not liberal enough for you, so he’s therefore just a tool for Fox news right?

      • Pipercat

        My, so forward! I like the word you used, seems. Perfectly conditional just like his status as a partisan. Did you know Dana P gave him a box of chocolates after an unusually vicious verbal beating he took by his good pal Eric?

      • Ron

        How can one really know what kind of a person is just by watching TV? I don’t like to pre-judge. Hence the word “seems”. not based on his politics.

      • Pipercat

        Curious, you say this, but in the same sentence you prejudge me by putting words in my mouth.

      • Ron

        My gosh you and Mr. Nyberg are really strange. You bring up Beckel, presumably in a disparaging way, and then say I’m prejudging you. And Nyberg thinks I’m narrow-minded just because I’m a conservative. Strange, and not very bright. Don’t let it bother you though. Be happy.

      • Pipercat

        I presumed nothing. I offered an example. The presumption is yours and the other commenter is irrelevant to this part of the thread. I’m not bothered at all; in fact, all I have to do is let you argue against your own premise.

      • Ron

        Fair enough. So you offered Beckel as an example of what?

      • Pipercat

        This comment of yours:

        “Oh I see, so its just like a fix, right? they only put token liberals on
        there, set them up so they can be knocked down? you are so smart to see
        through this charade. I bet the liberals you are talking about wouldn’t
        appreciate that however.”

        Beckel is the fall guy on The Five. A simple seach for video of the show will attest to this. It’s usually Bolling doing the browbeating, but Gutfeld will unleash his Sith Apprentice Andrea to join in on the fun. It can be hard to watch really. Not from the other four, but from Beckel himself. Really feckless at times.

        Alas, I simply must attend to business.

        Au revOh I see, so its just like a fix, right? they only put token liberals on
        there, set them up so they can be knocked down? you are so smart to see
        through this charade. I bet the liberals you are talking about wouldn’t
        appreciate that however.

        Au revoir!

        what EXACTLY do ” conservatives” conserve? it has historically been proven NOT to be money/finances

      • Benjamin Hutterer

        IT would seem that the Conservatives of any country would be conserving lower-c conservative social values instead of finances and material assets, which is the definition of a fiscal conservative. In the latter’s case, an example of such would be Toronto-Dominion Bank, a fiscally conservative bank based in Canada that has survived turmoil in both this country and abroad through sound investment choices and low- to medium-risk trades on the stock market.

        Personally, I would go with a fiscally-conservative Liberal or Socialist party because they would be, presumably more able to manage a country’s economy without going into enormous amounts of debt (Does Mike Harris ring a bell? He was Toronto’s mayor back in the 90’s and tanked Toronto’s local economy by promoting the Common-Sense Budget, which failed miserably, tanking the educational system by axing the special needs program among other items as well; to make matters worse, Tim Hudak tried to reintroduce ex-mayor Mike Harris’ failed policies on a provincial scale.)

        I am fortunate to live in Canada, but politics has gotten back to being crazy of late.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        But you do pre-judge. You assume that anyone that disagrees with your narrow minded viewpoints must be a liberal. And then presume to say that someone is “not liberal enough for you” in a condescending tone.

      • Yeah, Beckell is a recovering Democrat coke head and drunk.

      • Pipercat

        Sounds like the perfect fall guy to me! Can’t have anybody who can articulate and make a point now can we?

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        Its not anyone else’s fault that when facts are presented your bogus reporting falls apart. Take ever republican or conservative that has been on with Bill Maher. He gives them plenty of speaking room and has many high class and influential people speak. Nearly every single one of them can be torn apart once they are out of their comfort zone where they can no longer scream over the top of people or shut them down completely because they disagree. Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, O’Reilly, they all do the same thing. They call on a viewpoint from the opposite side of the spectrum. They ask only questions that have obvious yes or no answers setting them up to look sheepish and then cut them off and scream over the top of them when they have a chance to make a valid point or statement. You sir, are the charade you speak of.

      • Ron

        OK man whatever. And funny you write about Bill Maher. Another limo liberal tool. If a conservative goes on his ridiculously childish show he gets shouted down by the clueless audience and is given about 10 seconds to present their ideas before they are interrupted. The thing about you liberals, I know many of them, and in my humble opinion you are close-minded, boring, unhappy people in many respects. I think we fiscal conservatives are a more welcoming bunch.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        HAHA wrong again! I am very open minded, happy and live a very exciting life. And I do not claim to be a liberal. I do not believe in the left vs right agenda.
        I find your comments hilarious though!
        “I think we fiscal conservatives are a more welcoming bunch.” Says the group that makes up the KKK, Tea Partiers and the old confederate states as opposed to the group that created the hippy movemnet. Peace and love man….lol you’re a joke.

      • Ron

        KKK was white southern democrats, not conservatives. Robert Byrd, democrat senator, was one of them. Hippy movement like Jerry Rubin, the capitalist? Hippy movement as in spoiled yuppies who are leaving NOTHING for the next generation? Who’s the joke man?

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        Now you just proved how ignorant you are.
        1) The KKK came out of conservative values.
        2) Democrats are a title. Conservative is a political view.
        3) During the civil war the Republicans were the liberals while the Democrats were conservative. The conservative agendas and views are still the same. Just changed titles.
        The “spoiled yuppies” you speak of are the politicians that are dipping into our social security and corporate welfare that are leaving nothing for the next generation.

      • Ron

        Oh I see. According to Andrew Nyberg, the names “democrat” and republican” don’t actually MEAN anything…we should just look at the underlying philosophy, right? Hey that’s really good. Doing it that way means that YOUR party, (Democrats) were never fucking racists, were never pro-slavery, were never on the wrong side. That’s kind of like being able to change the goalposts wherever and whenever you want, right?Enough already, not to be rude (like you), but you bore me.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        Just another right wing nut job that can’t handle the facts. Good riddance!

      • Cacille

        Hm. Okay. So because the Democrats WERE racist at one point…in the far….far….far past – that means that Republicans are not racist, never can be, now or in the future. This is what you are arguing – that the past means much more than the now.

      • Tea party sane. Occupy Wall Street, CODE PINK etc. insane.

      • David Saint

      • Mark “OZ” Geist, Kris “Tanto” Paronto, John “TIG” Tiegen, Jack Silva, Dave “D.B.” Benton, Tyrone “Rone’ Woods. ’13 hours at Benghazi.” book by Mitchel Zuckoff NY Times best selling author.

        Liberals ‘always’ pick that single attack by Timothy McVeigh and have the nerve to compare that with the decades and tens of thousands of attacks by Muslim fanatics. What McVeigh did was wrong. Tim was set off
        by watching the murder of innocent women and children at Waco by Democrat President Bill Clinton. Another attack was at Ruby Ridge where more innocents were killed.

      • David Saint

        lol yea, we do make that comparison because the tea party rants sound JUST like McVeighs!!!!

      • McVeigh McVeigh one single guy versus tens of thousands of Muslim terrorist attacks.

        McVeigh went off after seeing Bill Clinton an AG Janet Reno murder in cold blood innocent women and children at Waco and Ruby Ridge.

        Occupy Wall Street was dirty filthy dope smoking liberal Democrat hippies. Like Stanley, Obama’s mother.

      • David Saint

        lol i told you to be quiet before you made a fool of yourself, and there you went and did it again. You are A. Justifying the murder of children. B. Apparently arent aware of how many professionals (IE successful business people) smoke marijuana (75%). C. Think Occupy was bad. I dont know, maybe you enjoyed them nearly bankrupting our country. You are after all a tea party idiot, who generally are middle class but want to be serfs the rest of their lifes to the 1%.
        btw, what the heck does muslim terrorists have to do with dems? Bush is the one who ignored intel about an impending attack, which turned out to be 9-11. ps Koresh brought that all on himself, the fact you defend him speaks volumes about just how crazy you really are. LOL

      • Like abortions doctors or Obama’s drones kill children. How? Clinton had a chance to kill Osama bin Laden but didn’t. Obama is weak on fighting Muslim terrorists. In fact Obama helps them. ie see Libya. and Egypt

      • Bill Clinton murdered children at Waco and Obama killed children with drones.

      • David Saint

        now you are just desperate and acting like a clown

      • It’s a fact.

      • Sean Jones

        And Bush killed THOUSANDS of innocent women and children using the military and his own ego

      • You mean Obama has killed innocent women and children with his drone attacks.

      • Andrew A Nyberg

        You keep saying thousands of Muslim terrorist attacks. There has only ever been one terrorist attack and that was on Sept 11th. We won’t argue if it was truthful or not. It is NOT a terrorist attack when someone detonates a bomb on a road in their own country. It is NOT a terrorist attack when people defend their homeland. They are doing the exact same thing you pro – gun nuts would do if someone invaded your country and killed your family members and friends with advanced weaponry. You would hide use any means necessary to kill your enemy. That is called guerrilla warfare. Not terrorism. Or do you forget that is how America won it’s independence?

      • So the 1993 WTC attack and the Boston marathon attack never happened. Major Hasan attack at Forth Hood, You God damned liberal fool.

      • McVeigh wasn’t in the Tea party and acted as he did because of all the innocent women and children that Bill Clinton and AG Janet Reno murdered at Waco and Ruby Ridge.

      • David Saint

        lol so you are validating McVeighs excuses for murdering children? thats real nice..it speaks volumes about your character, or lack there of

      • History Of The Democrats And The KKK…..(Why the Democrats started the KKK)

        The original targets of the Ku Klux Klan were Republicans, both black and white, according to a new television program and book, which describe how the Democrats started the KKK and for decades harassed the GOP with lynchings and threats.

        An estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites died at the end of KKK ropes from 1882 to 1964.

        The documentation has been assembled by David Barton of Wallbu More..ilders and published in his book “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White,” which reveals that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem.

        “Of all forms of violent intimidation, lynchings were by far the most effective,” Barton said in his book. “Republicans often led the efforts to pass federal anti-lynching laws and their platforms consistently called for a ban on lynching. Democrats successfully blocked those bills and their platforms never did condemn lynchings.”

        Further, the first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention, no Democrats voted for the 14th Amendment to grant citizenship to former slaves and, to this day, the party website ignores those decades of racism, he said.

        “Although it is relatively unreported today, historical documents are unequivocal that the Klan was established by Democrats and that the Klan played a prominent role in the Democratic Party,” Barton writes in his book. “In fact, a 13-volume set of congressional investigations from 1872 conclusively and irrefutably documents that fact.

        “The Klan terrorized black Americans through murders and public floggings; relief was granted only if individuals promised not to vote for Republican tickets, and violation of this oath was punishable by death,” he said. “Since the Klan targeted Republicans in general, it did not limit its violence simply to black Republicans; white Republicans were also included.”

        Barton also has covered the subject in one episode of his American Heritage Series of television programs, which is being broadcast now on Trinity Broadcasting Network and Cornerstone Television.

        Barton told WND his comments are not a condemnation or endorsement of any party or candidate, but rather a warning that voters even today should be aware of what their parties and candidates stand for.

        His book outlines the aggressive pro-slavery agenda held by the Democratic Party for generations leading up to the Civil War, and how that did not die with the Union victory in that war of rebellion.

        Even as the South was being rebuilt, the votes in Congress consistently revealed a continuing pro-slavery philosophy on the part of the Democrats, the book reveals.

        Three years after Appomattox, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting blacks citizenship in the United States, came before Congress: 94 percent of Republicans endorsed it.

        “The records of Congress reveal that not one Democrat ? either in the House or the Senate ? voted for the 14th Amendment,” Barton wrote. “Three years after the Civil War, and the Democrats from the North as well as the South were still refusing to recognize any rights of citizenship for black Americans.”

        He also noted that South Carolina Gov. Wade Hampton at the 1868 Democratic National Convention inserted a clause in the party platform declaring the Congress’ civil rights laws were “unconstitutional, revolutionary, and void.”

        It was the same convention when Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first grand wizard of the KKK, was honored for his leadership.

        Barton’s book notes that in 1868, Congress heard testimony from election worker Robert Flournoy, who confessed while he was canvassing the state of Mississippi in support of the 13th and 14th Amendments, he could find only one black, in a population of 444,000 in the state, who admitted being a Democrat.

        Nor is Barton the only person to raise such questions. In 2005, National Review published an article raising similar points. The publication said in 1957 President Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican, deployed the 82nd Airborne Division to desegregate the Little Rock, Ark., schools over the resistance of Democrat Gov. Orval Faubus.

        Further, three years later, Eisenhower signed the GOP’s 1960 Civil Rights Act after it survived a five-day, five-hour filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats, and in 1964, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act after former Klansman Robert Byrd’s 14-hour filibuster, and the votes of 22 other Senate Democrats, including Tennessee’s Al Gore Sr., failed to scuttle the plan.

        Dems’ website showing jump in history

        The current version of the “History” page on the party website lists a number of accomplishments ? from 1792, 1798, 1800, 1808, 1812, 1816, 1824 and 1828, including its 1832 nomination of Andrew Jackson for president. It follows up with a name change, and the establishment of the Democratic National Committee, but then leaps over the Civil War and all of its issues to talk about the end of the 19th Century, William Jennings Bryan and women’s suffrage.

        A spokesman with the Democrats refused to comment for WND on any of the issues. “You’re not going to get a comment,” said the spokesman who identified himself as Luis.

        “Why would Democrats skip over their own history from 1848 to 1900?” Barton asked. “Perhaps because it’s not the kind of civil rights history they want to talk about ? perhaps because it is not the kind of civil rights history they want to have on their website.”

        The National Review article by Deroy Murdock cited the 1866 comment from Indiana Republican Gov. Oliver Morton condemning Democrats for their racism.

        “Every one who shoots down Negroes in the streets, burns Negro schoolhouses and meeting-houses, and murders women and children by the light of their own flaming dwellings, calls himself a Democrat,” Morton said.

        It also cited the 1856 criticism by U.S. Sen. Charles Sumner, R-Mass., of pro-slavery Democrats. “Congressman Preston Brooks (D-S.C.) responded by grabbing a stick and beating Sumner unconscious in the Senate chamber. Disabled, Sumner could not resume his duties for three years.”

        By the admission of the Democrats themselves, on their website, it wasn’t until Harry Truman was elected that “Democrats began the fight to bring down the final barriers of race and gender.”

        “That is an accurate description,” wrote Barton. “Starting with Harry Truman, Democrats began ? that is, they made their first serious efforts ? to fight against the barriers of race; yet ? Truman’s efforts were largely unsuccessful because of his own Democratic Party.”

        Even then, the opposition to rights for blacks was far from over. As recently as 1960, Mississippi Democratic Gov. Hugh White had requested Christian evangelist Billy Graham segregate his crusades, something Graham refused to do. “And when South Carolina Democratic Gov. George Timmerman learned Billy Graham had invited African Americans to a Reformation Rally at the state Capitol, he promptly denied use of the facilities to the evangelist,” Barton wrote.

        The National Review noted that the Democrats’ “Klan-coddling” today is embodied in Byrd, who once wrote that, “The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.”

        The article suggested a contrast with the GOP, which, when former Klansman David Duke ran for Louisiana governor in 1991 as a Republican, was “scorned” by national GOP officials.

        Until 1935, every black federal legislator was Republican, and it was Republicans who appointed the first black Air Force and Army four-star generals, established Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday as a national holiday, and named the first black national-security adviser, secretary of state, the research reveals.

        Current Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has said: “The first Republican I knew was my father, and he is still the Republican I most admire. He joined our party because the Democrats in Jim Crow Alabama of 1952 would not register him to vote. The Republicans did. My father has never forgotten that day, and neither have I.”

        Barton’s documentation said the first opponents of slavery “and the chief advocates for racial equal rights were the churches (the Quakers, Presbyterians, Methodists, etc.). Furthermore, religious leaders such as Quaker Anthony Benezet were the leading spokesmen against slavery, and evangelical leaders such as Presbyterian signer of the Declaration Benjamin Rush were the founders of the nation’s first abolition societies.”

        During the years surrounding the Civil War, “the most obvious difference between the Republican and Democrat parties was their stands on slavery,” Barton said. Republicans called for its abolition, while Democrats declared: “All efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient [to initiate] steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and all such efforts have the inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people.”

        Wallbuilders also cited John Alden’s 1885 book, “A Brief History of the Republican Party” in noting that the KKK’s early attacks were on Republicans as much as blacks, in that blacks were adopting the Republican identity en masse.

        “In some places the Ku Klux Klan assaulted Republican officials in their houses or offices or upon the public roads; in others they attacked the meetings of negroes and displaced them,” Alden wrote. “Its ostensible purpose at first was to keep the blacks in order and prevent them from committing small depredations upon the property of whites, but its real motives were essentially political ? The negroes were invariable required to promise not to vote the Republican ticket, and threatened with death if they broke their promises.”

        Barton told WND the most cohesive group of political supporters in American now is African-Americans. He said most consider their affiliation with the Democratic party longterm.

        But he said he interviewed a black pastor in Mississippi, who recalled his grandmother never “would let a Democrat in the house, and he never knew what she was talking about.” After a review of history, he knew, Barton said.

        Citing President George Washington’s farewell address, Barton told WND, “Washington had a great section on the love of party, if you love party more than anything else, what it will do to a great nation.”

      • History Of The Democrats And The KKK…..(Why the Democrats started the KKK)

        The original targets of the Ku Klux Klan were Republicans, both black and white, according to a new television program and book, which describe how the Democrats started the KKK and for decades harassed the GOP with lynchings and threats.

        An estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites died at the end of KKK ropes from 1882 to 1964.

        The documentation has been assembled by David Barton of Wallbu More..ilders and published in his book “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White,” which reveals that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem.

        “Of all forms of violent intimidation, lynchings were by far the most effective,” Barton said in his book. “Republicans often led the efforts to pass federal anti-lynching laws and their platforms consistently called for a ban on lynching. Democrats successfully blocked those bills and their platforms never did condemn lynchings.”

        Further, the first grand wizard of the KKK was honored at the 1868 Democratic National Convention, no Democrats voted for the 14th Amendment to grant citizenship to former slaves and, to this day, the party website ignores those decades of racism, he said.

        “Although it is relatively unreported today, historical documents are unequivocal that the Klan was established by Democrats and that the Klan played a prominent role in the Democratic Party,” Barton writes in his book. “In fact, a 13-volume set of congressional investigations from 1872 conclusively and irrefutably documents that fact.

        “The Klan terrorized black Americans through murders and public floggings; relief was granted only if individuals promised not to vote for Republican tickets, and violation of this oath was punishable by death,” he said. “Since the Klan targeted Republicans in general, it did not limit its violence simply to black Republicans; white Republicans were also included.”

        Barton also has covered the subject in one episode of his American Heritage Series of television programs, which is being broadcast now on Trinity Broadcasting Network and Cornerstone Television.

        Barton told WND his comments are not a condemnation or endorsement of any party or candidate, but rather a warning that voters even today should be aware of what their parties and candidates stand for.

        His book outlines the aggressive pro-slavery agenda held by the Democratic Party for generations leading up to the Civil War, and how that did not die with the Union victory in that war of rebellion.

        Even as the South was being rebuilt, the votes in Congress consistently revealed a continuing pro-slavery philosophy on the part of the Democrats, the book reveals.

        Three years after Appomattox, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting blacks citizenship in the United States, came before Congress: 94 percent of Republicans endorsed it.

        “The records of Congress reveal that not one Democrat ? either in the House or the Senate ? voted for the 14th Amendment,” Barton wrote. “Three years after the Civil War, and the Democrats from the North as well as the South were still refusing to recognize any rights of citizenship for black Americans.”

        He also noted that South Carolina Gov. Wade Hampton at the 1868 Democratic National Convention inserted a clause in the party platform declaring the Congress’ civil rights laws were “unconstitutional, revolutionary, and void.”

        It was the same convention when Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, the first grand wizard of the KKK, was honored for his leadership.

        Barton’s book notes that in 1868, Congress heard testimony from election worker Robert Flournoy, who confessed while he was canvassing the state of Mississippi in support of the 13th and 14th Amendments, he could find only one black, in a population of 444,000 in the state, who admitted being a Democrat.

        Nor is Barton the only person to raise such questions. In 2005, National Review published an article raising similar points. The publication said in 1957 President Dwight Eisenhower, a Republican, deployed the 82nd Airborne Division to desegregate the Little Rock, Ark., schools over the resistance of Democrat Gov. Orval Faubus.

        Further, three years later, Eisenhower signed the GOP’s 1960 Civil Rights Act after it survived a five-day, five-hour filibuster by 18 Senate Democrats, and in 1964, Democrat President Lyndon Johnson signed the 1964 Civil Rights Act after former Klansman Robert Byrd’s 14-hour filibuster, and the votes of 22 other Senate Democrats, including Tennessee’s Al Gore Sr., failed to scuttle the plan.

        Dems’ website showing jump in history

        The current version of the “History” page on the party website lists a number of accomplishments ? from 1792, 1798, 1800, 1808, 1812, 1816, 1824 and 1828, including its 1832 nomination of Andrew Jackson for president. It follows up with a name change, and the establishment of the Democratic National Committee, but then leaps over the Civil War and all of its issues to talk about the end of the 19th Century, William Jennings Bryan and women’s suffrage.

        A spokesman with the Democrats refused to comment for WND on any of the issues. “You’re not going to get a comment,” said the spokesman who identified himself as Luis.

        “Why would Democrats skip over their own history from 1848 to 1900?” Barton asked. “Perhaps because it’s not the kind of civil rights history they want to talk about ? perhaps because it is not the kind of civil rights history they want to have on their website.”

        The National Review article by Deroy Murdock cited the 1866 comment from Indiana Republican Gov. Oliver Morton condemning Democrats for their racism.

        “Every one who shoots down Negroes in the streets, burns Negro schoolhouses and meeting-houses, and murders women and children by the light of their own flaming dwellings, calls himself a Democrat,” Morton said.

        It also cited the 1856 criticism by U.S. Sen. Charles Sumner, R-Mass., of pro-slavery Democrats. “Congressman Preston Brooks (D-S.C.) responded by grabbing a stick and beating Sumner unconscious in the Senate chamber. Disabled, Sumner could not resume his duties for three years.”

        By the admission of the Democrats themselves, on their website, it wasn’t until Harry Truman was elected that “Democrats began the fight to bring down the final barriers of race and gender.”

        “That is an accurate description,” wrote Barton. “Starting with Harry Truman, Democrats began ? that is, they made their first serious efforts ? to fight against the barriers of race; yet ? Truman’s efforts were largely unsuccessful because of his own Democratic Party.”

        Even then, the opposition to rights for blacks was far from over. As recently as 1960, Mississippi Democratic Gov. Hugh White had requested Christian evangelist Billy Graham segregate his crusades, something Graham refused to do. “And when South Carolina Democratic Gov. George Timmerman learned Billy Graham had invited African Americans to a Reformation Rally at the state Capitol, he promptly denied use of the facilities to the evangelist,” Barton wrote.

        The National Review noted that the Democrats’ “Klan-coddling” today is embodied in Byrd, who once wrote that, “The Klan is needed today as never before and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia.”

        The article suggested a contrast with the GOP, which, when former Klansman David Duke ran for Louisiana governor in 1991 as a Republican, was “scorned” by national GOP officials.

        Current Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice has said: “The first Republican I knew was my father, and he is still the Republican I most admire.

Furthermore, religious leaders such as Quaker Anthony Benezet were the leading spokesmen against slavery, and evangelical leaders such as Presbyterian signer of the Declaration Benjamin Rush were the founders of the nation’s first abolition societies.”

Republicans called for its abolition, while Democrats declared: “All efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery, or to take incipient [to initiate] steps in relation thereto, are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences, and all such efforts have the inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people.”

        KKK DID NOT COME OUT OF CONSERVATIVES political views or values…did you learn that from the far left revisionist??? During the civil war the Republicans are the same now as they were now..and the stupid insane Idea that everyone just swapped political parties is so ridiculous it is laughable when you stop AND THINK ABOUT IT!! THE CONSERVATIVES VALUES are about fiscal responsibility, social responsibility in that everyone who can work, should work to provide for those who are ill, disabled or elderly, everyone should be allowed to follow their dreams…small government to insure freedoms and national security….and yet here the far left is about big Government and big brother. Government “knows”whats best for everyone, Gov. will take care of all your needs, everyone should have equal everything, and no one should have more despite that one man works and the other one doesn’t…Liberals are for Marxism under the disguise of socialism..anti-white, anti-law, and anti- national security…

        YOu obviously have never watched Bill Maher. He might be one of the fairest moderators on the air. He let’s the other guy makea fool of himself, THEN he points it out with a clever question that he actually expects and answer to.

        And Rachel Maddow not only corrects her mistakes @ the top of the hour, she also tells you when the RED MENACE SOB refuses to come on her show. And she NEVER shouts ANYONE down. EVER.

        are you kidding… he’s anything but fair and is to the left of comrade Obama

      • Stephen Barlow

        LMAO @ comrade COMRADE.

      • Bill Maher got fired from his ABC TV show Politically Incorrect because he called our military cowards for firing missiles at our enemies and the Muslim terrorists were brave because they hijacks planes and used them as missiles. Maybe Maher thinks we should fight ISIS using sticks and stones, the ignorant pot smoking young black female teenage lover. Sick. The guy is my age and he’s going after teenage girls.

      • Any relation to Iceberg?

      • Really? Did Madcow correct page 5 of Drift where she said the Cuban missile crisis was in 1963 or that our nuclear missiles have fungus growing on their metal wingtips. That’s insane. As a former Nuclear weapons guard That’s just absurd. Her book also had no note which meant it had no names or info on where she got her whacko ideas from. She probably made them up. Liberals do that all the time.

        would ” fiscal conservatives” ( regressives) include the socially stultified scumbags who shut down our GOVT last yr( house repubs) to the tune of 24.1 BILLION,,,and the scumbags who blew 10’s of MILLIONS ( again) finding out that the “BENGHAZI coverup” was NOTHING: no malfeasance or withholding of ANYTHING occurred? the PRIOR administration saddling us with CRIPPLING debt and deficits and 2 unpaid wars?
        those fiscal conservatives?

      • 13 hours at Benghazi by 4 brave men who saved 24 Americans at the US consulate in Benghazi proved that Obama, Clinton and Rice were lying. you dumb asswipe liberal fool. I’m sick of your stupid lies and ignorance.

      • giankeys loves shemale porn

        wrong again,,,,,,,,, the lawyers of the book asked that NO info ( in the book) be released until the book was out & being sold. they lied and thats why they didn’t testify to congress

        Exactly!

      • Jim Bean

        They ask yes and no questions because otherwise, the liberal is going to go off on a merry charade to try to dance around the question. So ingrained is that behavior in Liberals that O’Reilly calls his slot the ‘no spin zone’ as fair warning to Liberals to cut the crap.

      • Laramie F.

        You’re clearly never watch this show because Jon Stewart has had on everyone from Mark Rubio to Bill O’Reilly (multiple times). Because Stewart is capable of winning arguments on facts and logic rather than screaming, he actually lets his guess complete their sentences.

      • O’Reilly is a pompous ass who would go anywhere to sell his new book. Even The View.

      Too bad you watched that and didn’t get that what you’re saying here is exactly the point he was making on how things SHOULD BE, but they’re not. He’s acknowledging that he’s seen proof himself that things are drastically different for black people in this country than they are for whites.
      And America is not the only country like this – plenty of racism in plenty of other countries. We just don’t see it on our news stations.

  • Karen

    So, if Fox News is the “counterpoint” to the liberal, mainstream media, does that not make Fox News conservative? And by their own admission, in fact?

  • Concerned8888

    WELL SAID Jon Stewart, I LOVE THIS GUY !!

  • Lawrence

    Brilliant commentary. I only wish that these people could live for a day, a week, a month as a black man. No level of education, nice clothes, or eloquent speaking will buffer a person of color from daily struggles due to no other reason than their race.

    The troubling fact is that so many white people can’t even fathom that others in this country have lived a different experience than they have.

    • Indubitous

      Very true. That small step would mean so much in the way of human equality in this place…

  • stlgirl

    The only thing I think is funny about this is that Jon is missing the point !!! Yes, Michael was an unarmed BLACK teenager shot and killed by police. BUT, if Michael was white the headlines would not read ” Police shot and killed an unarmed WHITE teenager”, now would it??? Race shouldn’t even be brought up or a factor unless it was proven it was. That’s how the media is stirring the pot…

    • Russell Warren

      So true and to the point. Not one of the lefties will intelligently dispute this…

      • Adam Smith

        When was the last time the cops shot and killed an unarmed white teenager then left him laying in the street for four hours? Get back to us on that, will ya?

      • stlgirl

        I was referring to how to media has played a part in stirring the pot… I never said I agree how the cops handled this situation. But, I fail to see how it had anything to do with race. The focus of this case should be better police training not racial profiling. Please tell me one fact that proves Michael was being “picked on” because he was black? Now, I will agree that we still need to work on race equality in our country, but using this case as an emample is going to dis-credit real race issues in the future…

      • Indubitous

        It’s a culmination of ALL of the wrongful deaths of unarmed black YOUTH over the past couple of years. Sure, it’s very CONVENIENT to choose to analyze this case as a singular event when trying to disprove that it was racially motivated… But anyone with critical thinking skills analyzes the TREND that is showing itself here: there has been a ridiculous assault on young black life by POLICE OFFICERS in this country and it is becoming more brazen as we speak. Mike Brown’s case is SO alarming and caused protests because it’s like the cops don’t even care to hide it anymore. Not to mention the lack of effort to at least provide a sound investigation into the matter. Like I said, the message is that is doesn’t matter and therefore it will keep happening. No decent human being wants to accept that.

      • `stlgirl

        Hey Adam Smith, Every time I make a valid point, people want to change the subject and divert my attention.I answered you question. I don’t agree how the police handled it. But, this is the first case I’ve ever heard of anyone black or white left in the street for hours after being shot. So, back to the root of this mess~.What is one fact that proves what happened to Michael Brown was race related?? Get back to us on that, will ya?

    • Indubitous

      Prove that it was racially motivated? How exactly would that be done, then? How do you imagine that scenario in your mind’s eye? I’d REALLY like to know…

      Also, I think YOU diverted the subject of what JON was saying by bringing up “if it was a white teenager…” so don’t dish it if you can’t take it…

  • FD Brian

    The majority of white people don’t have enough black friends to even begin to understand what life is like for a black person. I myself don’t even have enough but the ones I do talk about the complete BS that happens to them that never happens to white people, never happens. And too many people think if it doesn’t happen to them it doesn’t happen to any one else much either.

  • Russell Warren

    You know the news I have watched on fox just says wait for the facts to come out, not what is reported in the news. People will say anything to get on there; like that “witness” that said Brown was shot in the back. Are those the facts you want us to get, like CNN reported?!?! The cop is already guilty when we don’t even know the facts. Right now, all the defense attorney has to do is provide plausible another story of what happened after the four second pause in firing. Most reasonable people assume he rushed the cop again and then was shot in the head. However, those with racial thoughts must say the cop saw him for those four seconds, noticed he was black and then shot him in the head. Anyone that has been in the military or law enforcement knows that we would rather be scrutinizing his actions than being killed by an IED (or in this case, an amped up criminal). With all of the left convicting this cop before a trial is even scheduled, breaks the edict of our judicial system-innocent until proven guilty. Fox downplays racism because all the left media spreads it like wildfire (with or without facts as my CNN reference shows). Then our “friend” Al Sharpton get on the air and does nothing but stir up hate in the black community. There is a reason for why blacks are worse off than others in the current climate. 67% HS graduation rate for blacks vs 82% for whites and 93% for Asians. Dropping out leads to poverty in any race, creed, or gender. Poverty usually leads to criminal activity. Then we have an administration that wants to provide entitlements to the poor, rather than incentives to work. Hence the black unemployment rate is above 9% (last I saw). Note this is the same as post 9/11 Veterans. Do you see veterans crying about discrimination? No, we are trained to act and make life work no matter how bad it is (that’s the way I was raised, too). I will not say there isn’t racism in America, but it’s much less than perceived by the media and even our President. What business does a President have to make judgements on an on-going criminal investigation? About the same as the right has to make judgements on the IRS without facts (although the deletion of the Blackberry after investigation is criminal on at least two counts). Then we have Obama say there’s not a “smidgen of corruption” in the IRS. Again, he was making comments before the investigation was complete. He was wrong onTrayvon, looks to be wrong on the IRS; is he going for the hat trick?! lol

  • Steve Bickerstaff

    My father was a racist kind of man, I would argue with him and then call him Archie Bunker. As I reached my later teens I would get up to some not quite legal but not morrolly wrong activities. Everytime I had any dealings with blacks I got ripped off. Stabbed once and shot at. As I matured and dtarted a plumbing company , every time that I dealt with…well you know . In my thirties I caught a man breaking into my house and it got violent. I was charged with assault causing bodily harm and taken to jail to await bail. I was in their for 2 weeks untill then. The jail was about 3/4 blacks. They banded together to extort steal and brutalize the white population. So in my experience , basesd on life, I dont want anything to do with blacks. Untill they can stop blaming others for thier faults and take part in life in a fair manner. Maybe if in their own comunity they could be civil ized and teach their kids to do the same the police would treat them different. I am an Irish immigrant, life was not always fair to us but threw hard work and discipline we are proud of ourselves. I have become more archie bunker then my dad to the point that I have saved and worked hard to buy a small farm in rural alberta to protect my children from what I went threw. This saddens me but it is not my fault. Maybe more blacks should listen to Mr. Bill Cosby then to Chris Brown.

    • Indubitous

      So you’re racist because you decided to follow a “not quite legal” path in life, got caught and corralled with other criminals in the criminal system? You, my friend, are sad. WTF do you expect if you surround yourself with bad people? Sure, a disproportionate amount of the black population is in jail, poor, and has to resort to illegal activities to make money… what’s your excuse?

  • OpenMinded

    How can anyone who actually watches this clip not find Fox News disgraceful? While the whole thing was amazing, my favorite, favorite line had to be “Did you just ‘he who smelt it, dealt it’ racism?!” How sad that this seems to be the main line conservative talking heads are taking on this issue.

  • emcada

    I’m not sure how I feel about this article. I’m not disagreeing with racial issues (racism, racial disparities, etc.) being a minority in the US. I’m taking issue with Clifton. He refused to see the incident in Ferguson as a racial issue until further evidence surfaced yet here in this article he seems to then agree that this is an racial issue because Jon Stewart made jokes on his show against Fox News? Are you agreeing that it is a racial issue? If you came out in favor of that stance in an earlier article then just link it to me. I haven’t been reading every article on this site so I could’ve missed it. If not, I think this is inconsistent journalism.

  • William Wilson

    I’m Independent and what’s amazing to me is the fact that half of Fox News advertising seems to come in the form of word of mouth from Liberals and others who hate it’s existence. I keep hearing the name thrown around like ‘ GOOGLE ” when it comes to the issue of gaming the news yet I see the game being played out on both sides of the news. Any source who’s existence is dependent on generating revenue from a particular audience and/or benefactor has an inherent conflict of interest in how it’s going to present the truth to you. Doesn’t matter whether it’s FOX or MSNBC. FOX obviously is the player that has managed to garner the most attention due to the fact that even liberals admit it’s one of the ” Big Dogs ” and everybody from the President, on down to officials on the floor of the senate and beyond are saying the name regularly. Even the President himself sat down with O’Reilly after all the years of complaining about Fox’s hustle. . When it comes to the game of what is actually relevant , The opposite of love is not actually hate , but indifference, and I see very little indifference when it comes to Fox news and the game it puts down. And I’m pretty sure that’s exactly how Fox likes it from a marketing standpoint. It’s like an indirect “PR” machine run by it’s competitors.

      problem w/Fox News is they make up their own story w/out checking out the facts first, that’s what their known for!!!

      • William Wilson

        Can you explain the difference between Fox Doing it and MSNBC doing it . I watch Stewart as well and he’s done the exact same thing for effect in part of the clip we are talking about. Somebody even said it here…. ” Rachel Maddow Corrects Her Mistakes ” . And we all saw front and center how Dan Rather let his ideology get him caught up in putting out a ” Mistake ” story about Bush that got him canned years back. I could go on but what’s the use. Again Fox has obviously has something to say because if everything coming out of there was any more lies than any place else it would be irrelevant by now. Fox … MSNBC and the like do what they do, But I’ve seen enough people on both sides taking the stuff from either of those outfits that they simply don’t want to hear and characterize it as a lie even though some of that very stuff actually came to pass. The old saying ” Thou Doest Protest Too Much ” really plays out in the back and forth which is is cool. It’s part of the healthy debate you need to construct the truth for themselves. At least .. for those that really want to know the truth and are not simply just trying to be right in their own preferences . I just don’t believe for a second you can put all your trust in any one source.

    Great seeing another celebrity speaking out against social injustice. After the show he probably is driven home by a limo service into is subdivision where the only minority is the jewish accountant and the last crime committed was when the Hendersons brought the store bought potato salad to the block party. If he really wants to help why doesn’t he march in the parades or join the ferguson protests. Or how about calling all out the “code of silence” these neighborhoods have against the police. We want equality for all but everyone thinks its someone elses problem. Tell Jon to take a drive into engelwood, robbins, or posen to start talking about race and see if he comes out alive. You want change it starts with an individual, then a family then community, but it can’t be one family in suburban american, it needs to be thousands of families from every walk of life changing their culture.

    • Indubitous

      Jon Stewart is doing his part by addressing the racial issue to the side that, to this day, people rarely attempt to: he is educating and calling out WHITE people who don’t think it’s their problem. It IS their problem because it’s perpetuated in every fiber of American existence… economics, education, entertainment… everywhere. And to continue to ignore their role in continuing the cycle is a huge part of the problem. He’s using his platform to talk about the problem to the people who need to hear it… he’s doing exactly what he should be doing as a benefactor of white privilege. Going into Englewood, Robbins, etc to lecture BLACK people about race isn’t his place.

      what are you doing to counter social injustice??

      • Luke

        When I have kids they will be taught equality for everyone.

        And what I meant by him going to those neighborhoods is that he wouldn’t even make it out of his car to show his support. When you are pulled over by police because you are white and are escorted out town by them because harm can come to you, isn’t something wrong with that picture?

        What do YOU propose is done to counter social injustice? Just give every person no matter skin color, creed or gender and whether they are qualified or not any job for any pay? Clear out the prisons because they are over crowded with minor offenders? What do you want me to do to fight injustice?

        There probably is a valid point about black people getting targeted by the police more and if the police commit some kind of crime against an individual that has no merit I believe 100% the cop should be punished. White and blacks should be held accountable for the same crimes with the same degree of punishment. But at the same time if African Americans acknowledge they are targeted more why even have any thing on you or in your car that can lead to you being charged with something. If you don’t like being targeted don’t get mad when they a bag of weed stuffed down your pants or a gun tucked under the front seat. I don’t have that in my car and even though I can refuse for the officer to search my car I wouldn’t have any fear that he would find anything if he did.

      • Indubitous

        Teaching kids “equality” for everyone isn’t enough… The only way to end racism is to be honest about what is REALLY is, and that starts with being honest with one’s self about how one indirectly (and directly) benefits from it. “Teaching your kids to treat everyone equally” may be a start to helping them keep an open mind when someone DOES finally show them the truth down the line though.

        Anyway, your argument is the classic “well, if white people are racist, why don’t black people ALTER THEIR EXISTENCE ACCORDINGLY to avoid it.” What. The. Heck. You’ve jumped over the problem and solution to some convoluted band-aid for the problem.

        If all people should be treated equally, then profiling shouldn’t be a thing. Suggesting that black people not carry weed on them so that when THEY DO GET PROFILED they get let go isn’t going to solve anything. Studies show over and over that whites and blacks partake in drugs at pretty much the same rates, so the problem isn’t the drugs, it is using the excuse of drugs to profile and target blacks. What am I doing? I’m educating myself instead of seeking excuses and making up “brain facts” to justify what is wrong rather than just work to fix it. I at least know I’m not part of the problem.

      • Luke

        Ok Lets say we come full circle and racism is a thing of history and all the programs that have been put in place gave gotten every race and gender on equal ground in education, pay, and social status. Do you think that everyone will just forget the past and live in harmony or will all the groups that feel they have been wronged still demand more?

      • Indubitous

        That is a very valid question. It seems to be in our nature as humans to find SOMETHING to be unhappy about. But I don’t think it takes a rocket scientist to look at the state of humanity, race relations, poverty and suffering, especially on a global scale, and surmise that something is terribly wrong. Right now, things are clearly unbalanced.

        If (and that’s a big if) one day we do finally come full circle, I think that once again, it won’t take rocket scientists to look at how humanity has finally struck a balance compared to the past (i.e. our present) and put those groups that still feel they have been wronged in their place. I believe when all is well, then at least in a racial context, the majority will agree that there is no longer anything to complain about.

        But right now, I think that the majority agrees that things need to change.

      • Blacks are the most racist of anyone.

        ”when I have kids”……………
        no presumption here!
        so– do u also presume that u will teach your ”kids” that equality also is given 2 gays and women and the girls that aren’t as pretty or will U TEACH your “kids” that religion is a PRIVATE affair: not to be thrust upon anyone else– especially those who VIEW differently than YOUR teachings?
        will U presume to teach your “kids” to RESEARCH all items which formulate opinions- not just parrot recite such as most ” conservatives” do?
        I really liked ” if U don’t like being targeted don’t get mad when,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,”
        DONT GET MAD ? how about how they feel BEING TARGETED>? U miss the whole point.
        They are being targeted and those doing the targeting have nearly NO punishment for the “profiling”/”targeting”!! they say,,,,, ” oops”! Then they conjure up some crapola and when the African Kid resists ( see: Zimmerman/ martin) deadly consequences occur and they say ” OOOPS– Im sorry” )
        Until U — and I– walk in the shoes of OTHERS we do NOT know ANYTHING of what they feel; ergo we cannot complain about their actions. NOTE: this is NOT a reason for the NON WHITE NON CHRISTIAN “conservative” to break laws.
        ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, But: its easier to avoid breaking laws when NOT being attacked/ targeted; dontcha think???

  • Jackie

    Ew. And you criticize Fox for being biased and untruthful? Showing short clips from fractions of conversations of only white people talking, when in reality Fox has had people on both sides of the spectrum reasonably debating the topic, is biased. Just because Fox wants the policeman to have a fair trial they are racists and don’t acknowledge racism as an issue? First of all, he criticizes them for wondering why these people are not rioting for black on black crime? 93% of African americans killed each year from homicide is from other African Americans. And Stewart asks sarcastically why we would hold a policeman higher than gang members? Well why do accept black gang violence but because a white policeman shot a black man, it is racist and wrong? And he criticizes Hannity for the way he approaches cops if he gets stopped by one. Hannity is smart and doesn’t want to make a cop feel threatened. Stewart says that Brown “putting his hands up” wasn’t good enough for the cop, yet it has been PROVEN by the autopsy that Michael Brown’s hands were NOT UP IN THE AIR when he was shot. HIS HANDS WERE NOT UP. Do you people honestly believe this cop with no record of violence just shot a black man for absolutely zero reason!??? You are the problem. You are creating an illusion of white hatred towards blacks where it doesn’t exist (not saying it doesn’t exist anywhere, just that it doesn’t exist in this case).
    Secondly, Jon Stewart makes the point that 90% of the policeman in Ferguson are white yet 63% of the population is black. Then lets look at that. The chances of ANY COP shooting ANY PERSON in Ferguson, it is more likely it ill be a white cop, and a black person- SINCE DUHHHHH theres so many more white cops and so many more black people!!!!!!!!!! Are only the 7% of black cops supposed to maintain the 63% of Ferguson and the other 90% of cops are only to maintain 27% of the city???? Another stat that idiot Stewart threw out was that some ridiculous percentage of black people are the ones to get stopped by police. WELP, when they take up 63% of the town, then it is not a surprise that they have higher statistics of things. Black people in this town also probably have more car wrecks, more births and deaths then any other race because there are MORE of them!
    And lastly, as a journalist, when you identify people by their race, you are making it into a RACIAL STORY. If Michael Brown were to have died in a car accident, the headline would not be “Michael Brown, 18 year old African American, died in a car crash….” Because the fact that he is African Amercian isn’t relevant, he is human and he died that is what matters. Similarly, if the 18 year old had been killed by a black police officer, the headline would not have mentioned race either. However JUST BECAUSE Michael Brown was black and the policeman was white, this case is about race. Because the town is mostly black and the police are mostly white, this is about race. NO. NOOO. I am sick of this blame game.

  • Derrick

    Is he a supposed to be funny? He really didnt rip Fox apart as reported but did make a fool of himself trying. BTW what Fox is saying is true. The real racists in this issue is Sharpton, Jessie Jackson and our president. People that use unfortunate issues like this for their own advantage.

    I think if the officer did commit the crime the non-Fox news has tried and convicted him of, he will be arrested and stand trial. We’ll see. What we did see was the punk stealing cigars from that store then pushing the guy in the store that tried to stop him. If he did in fact attack the officer, then I he created the situation that lead to his own death. Time and a jury will tell. Not people like Jon Stuart or Bill Maher who are legends in their own minds

  • Mark Neil

    What bothers me most is that, while race plays a significant factor in these shootings, false arrests, etc, gender plays an even bigger role. It is virtually always men (White, Black, Hispanic, etc) that are the ones suffering these issues, but the gender is erased from the equation… why? Is it because violence committed on men is acceptable? Or is it because violence committed by a group by that same group is acceptable (if so, why the issues to address black on black gang violence?)? If the disproportionate number of black people shot or falsely stopped/arrested is a problem, why isn’t the disproportionate number of men suffering these not a problem? And if “men are the ones who are dangerous and criminal” is being used to excuse this crap, why doesn’t it likewise apply to the statistics on black people?

    The fact race is so frequently put forwards, but gender is so frequently erased as a factor, shows a level of hypocrisy.

    Normally, I like Jon Stewart. The problem with this rant where he “destroys/hammers/smashes/crushes” or whatever ridiculous verb you can come up with, is that he (along with many others) assumes to much. The evidence is showing that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson. I know cops can be dicks, but there aren’t to many I can think of that just arbitrarily hunt down and murder kids for no reason. Let’s wait for the evidence and the grand jury and see what comes of it, this race baiting is getting out of control.

    “Do you not understand that life in this country is inherently different
    for white people and black people?”

    Really? I love how the left still gives Blacks their free ticket to ride and to do as they please based on the trusty Race Card. Blacks have just as many (if not more) opportunities in this country as Whites do, Blacks are in all level of Govt. not to mention the Pres is Black. There are countless TV shows and movies that feature and cater to Blacks. Interracial relationships are common to the point where people consider a couple wanting to raise a White family “racist”.

    Yet every time you turn around you hear jackasses like Stewart, who have no clue what goes on in the real world of Black on White racism, spouting off about how disadvantaged and underprivileged Blacks are. Whenever people make negative comments about Blacks, or take them to task for their actions, they’re immediately demonized as racists and the Race Card comes out, and Blacks are portrayed as the victims no matter the situation. A gang of 10 Blacks murders a White child? It’s White people’s fault. Inner-city Blacks rob, rape, and murder Whites all the time, and of course it’s the White Man’s fault for keeping the Black Man down. Maybe, just maybe, people feel the way they do about Blacks because of the way they act, because of the countless atrocities you see them performing not only to Whites but to each other on a daily basis. Maybe because of the attitude they give and the culture they have that openly promotes racism, violence, and drug use. Maybe people should take personal accountability for their actions instead of always playing the victim role and blaming society. Besides, the Left and the Dems are the ones that created the Permanent Lower Class and Obama carries on that tradition today; give poor Blacks as many handouts as possible and keep them down, out of society, and dependent on Govt. Here are a few quotes from the beloved Democrat Pres LBJ;

    “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty
    uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got
    something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their
    uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give
    them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to
    make a difference.”—LBJ

    “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.” —Lyndon B. Johnson

    There you go. Welfare isn’t a “War on Poverty” it’s slavery all over again. Obama’s socialist programs and ObamaCare aren’t programs to help the poor, they’re programs designed to KEEP people poor and make the middle class poor as well for having to fund these programs. People need to wake up and see that this whole Left vs Right bullshit is a sham, the racial divide in this country is propagated by both parties to keep us at each others throats while they enslave not only Blacks and the poor but the rest of us as well. In a day and age where speaking the truth makes you a racist and a hatemonger it’s getting more and more important to ditch this political correctness bullshit and start having sincere dialogs about race and other things without fear of being labeled. If we can’t do that then both Dems and Republicans alike will turn this country into something it was never meant to be, and we’re already halfway there.

    After the Grand Jury refused to indict Officer Wilson, it appears that the media’s coverage that Bill O’Reilly was critical about was about as good as if they had indeed used the headline of Hero cop kills alien hunting humans, since that piece of fiction was about the same kind of fiction as what the media actually covered.
    Bill O’Reilly was wanting the media to wait until all of the facts were in. Now that they have completed their investigation and a grand jury, it would appear that O’Reilly was correct and the media’s rush to judgement was wrong.

    To call yourself a republican, democrat, conservative or liberal is simply unamerican. Most probably have the ignorant idea as well that this country is a democracy. Let me explain something, this country was founded as a Constitutional Republic with a Democratic election process. There is a difference. Those who still follow in the right minded ideals of our forefathers consider themselves constitutionalists. That is the only party we need have. The one where we support and defend our rights that keep us equal and free. The very rights that our ignorant liberal and conservative minded citizens so easily hand over for more power and wealth. Screw your un-American parties. I want my country back.
