Am I to understand that Jon Stewart, liberal in good standing, actually believes that Republican opposition to Obama nominee Loretta Lynch to succeed Attorney General Eric Holder is not animated by horrible hatred of black people? Because, um, that sounds like Stewart might at the very least be guilty of a microaggression for not conceding that every thought and feelingCharlie Rangel has on the subject of race is righteous.
I do occasionally dream that, as Stewart suggests here, Democrats will use the race card too often and it will therefore be rendered ineffective. Of course, I’ve been dreaming about that in earnest since 2009, and it seems to only have become more frequently used and more effective. But it is nice to see someone on the Left saying, even if for a brief moment, “Hey, maybe not everything is racist, and smearing one’s ideological opposition with the accusation is not terribly helpful to the country or to combating real racism. Hm?”
Like I said, Stewart is walking a dangerous line here, lest he be lumped in with the rest of the fake “racists” for not calling them racist with a throaty enough nationally televised yawp:
