I’ve enjoyed some of Jon Stewart’s comedy over the years, but enough is enough of the hypocrisy, double-think, and irrationality. Stewart often does point out problems in the media and politics, but he is often unfair in his treatment and reserves most of his scorn for those who are conservative. For example, he’s told Sarah Palin “f*ck you” when he disagreed with her painting big-city liberals as unAmerican. Other times he has used rude, crass, and idiotic attempts at humor to demean those with whom he disagrees, whether it’s saying false allegations against Republicans or just being generally mean-spirited.
Which is why it’s so strange that he would term his recent march a “call for rationality” and a “moderate march,” when it was filled with mostly leftists carrying hateful signs and irrational rhetoric. Politico explained Stewart’s (pretend) motive:
The Rally to Restore Sanity, which merged with Colbert’s March to Keep Fear Alive, had been advertised as nonpolitical. Stewart insisted it was “a clarion call for rationality” and a collective plea for the nation to stop yelling and show more respect to those they disagree with.
I’m all for respecting people with whom you disagree, but it’s almost always the leftists/Marxisists/”progressives”/Democrats who are smearing the opposition instead of addressing their arguments, whether it’s (unbelievably) Democrats/liberals making fun of a poor innocent child who has Down syndrome and whose mother is Sarah Palin, or Democrats attacking conservative women who run for office with sick and sexist “jokes” which aren’t funny. Case in point: Jon Stewart allowed people in with signs that read “I masturbate to [conservative politician] Christine O’Donnell” and signs depicting Hitler mustaches on Republicans and conservative commentators, including Jewish Republican Eric Cantor. Ironically, the signs read “(in)sanity! and “afraid yet?”
Fact: Jon Stewart’s minions are the irrational ones stoking fear and hatred. It’s time he addressed this on his show. If Stewart does not address and condemn those signs, then he shows who he truly is: a highly partisan, self-righteous hack filled with hatred toward those with whom he disagrees, all the while pretending to be against hatred and irrationality. The hypocrisy is unbelievable, since the only ones stoking false fears and irrationality are those pretending to be against them! You can’t make this up.
Related: Apparently there are more hateful signs that were allowed into the rally, such as “Death to Right Wing Extremists (but in a nice way),” some people who were either pro-pedophilia or making a “joke” about a sickening and evil act of child abuse (not surprising coming from liberals since Stewart makes light of the evil organization NAMBLA which advocates pedphilia, on his show. It’s not funny.), God hates ideologues (no He doesn’t, because then He’d hate everyone since everyone has a philosophy, but He does hate the self-righteousness at this damned rally), and of course leftists calling people “teabaggers” and “crazy” and implying that people who believe in God “hear voices” and are therefore crazy.

When are Huffington Post, Rolling Stone, and the Daily Show going to repudiate such hatred? I’m hearing crickets. The crickets are chirping because deep down all the partisan media that promoted this leftist, extremist march agree with these signs. But shhhh it’s a secret. You see, they’re “rational” and “moderate.”
Update: In another article from Yahoo! News, Stewart said at the rally “came to play nice. He decried the ‘extensive effort it takes to hate’ and declared ‘we can have animus and not be enemies.” Note to Stewart: preach this to your sycophantic drone followers. Also, where was this “rally for sanity” when the insane left was calling Bush “Hitler” for years (and still do occasionally) even though his policies–pro-life, anti-terror–are the opposite of Nazi policies?
