WATCH: Buck Sexton excoriates Jon Stewart’s race baiting monologue

After weeks of violence in the aftermath of 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death, the Missouri National Guard has finally left Ferguson and police officers have returned to “normal duties.” But that doesn’t mean the media is backing off its hyperbolic rhetoric. On radio this morning, Buck Sexton played parts of Jon Stewart’s recent monologue about race relations and excoriated the mainstream media’s irresponsible coverage of the tragedy.

“It seems there has been some restoration of some normal order in Ferguson,” Buck said. “Now, of course, there’s a tremendous amount of discussion about this and media coverage of it… I don’t think it is without consequence.”

To frame his argument, Buck played a portion of Jon Stewart’s “Race Off” monologue from Tuesday’s The Daily Show. Leftwing news outlets lauded the skit for its condemnation of Fox News and the right, but Buck found it to be ignorant and misinformed.

“Every person of color, he says, has faced a possibly fatal situation because of their skin color in the last few hours,” Buck explained. “Jon Stewart… is in some ways the most effective mouthpiece of the left because he combines humor when he needs it with seriousness when he wants it, and, therefore, you can’t ever debate him or discuss anything with him.”

As Buck explained, Stewart speaks with remarkable authority on the topic, and it is just assumed the audience will accept the ‘facts’ as he laid them out. In the case of the shooting death of Brown, however, hard facts have been scarce.

“I’m supposed to be lectured by Jon Stewart… about the personal experiences of other people in this country, which he takes on as his own for the purpose of browbeating people who disagree with him politically,” Buck said exasperatedly. “That’s what he seems so intent on doing.”

When it comes to the narrative surrounding Brown’s death, certain media outlets have predetermined that he was killed because of his race – not because of any of his own actions.

“The assumption [is] that this is symptomatic of a much larger disease of widespread racial hatred that the left is… trying to fan the flames of,” Buck concluded. “There is a whole channel – MSNBC – that is devoted to this one complex that America is perpetually racist and, therefore, all we can do is sit around and wait for MSNBC to lecture us on how racist it is because we can’t ever change it. It’s always going to be racist. That’s their baseline position.”

    Where is Eric Holder? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is Al Sharpton? Where is the national mainstream media? Good readers, I ask you……what is difference between this case and the Mike Brown case, and why haven’t those usual agitators made their views known or presence felt? Where is their selective outrage?

    You want to talk about race baiting, Jon Stewart? How about starting there.

    • soybomb315

      So you are doing what the left does and making the referenced incident about race?

      • Michael Harkov

        No, what I am doing is asking where the left’s selective outrage is in this case when, unlike the Michael Brown case, the officer in this case dies at the hands of his black aggressor. Thats all. :)

        • soybomb315

          Just FYI, the officer was not white

          • Michael Harkov

            No, I believe the officer was Latino. His aggressor on the other hand………..

            Funny how in this case the officer dying and the aggressor living produces the exact opposite results from the usual race-baiters when the race of the aggressor is the same in both instances. Officer shoots aggressive black person to death – riots and bedlam. Officer is shot to death by aggressive black person – tumbleweeds. What a surprise.

          • soybomb315

            Some people are race-baiters and some people are religion-baiters.

            You are criticizing people for bringing race into the public forum….Do you also criticize people for bringing religion into the public forum?

          • Michael Harkov

            I’m not talking about religion, so you can kindly can your strawman.

            More than criticizing them for bringing race into the public forum, I am criticizing them for doing so selectively and thus hypocritically. Get it now, finally? Good.

          • soybomb315

            So the answer is ‘no’. Why are you so opposed to a discussion about racial issues in USA?

          • Michael Harkov

            Noooooo, YOU say that my answer is, “no”, which is irrelevant in any case, as your strawman question (and follow-up strawman question which is based upon it) is predicated on the notion that it is valid, which it is not; just as no answer is going to matter when the question is irrelevant in the first place.

            But I digress, and I’ll answer your strawman purely for the ensuing entertainment value that it will provide –

            There are no “racial issues”; not in the sense that usual race-baiters and rabble-rousers seem to be insinuating.

          • soybomb315

            “There are no “racial issues”; not in the sense that usual race-baiters and rabble-rousers seem to be insinuating.”

            That is exactly what i was referring to. Only a sheltered white person can honestly say this country does not have race issues. You should re-watch the whole Jon Stewart segment and pay special attention to the social-economic points he was making. You could throw in the ‘war on drugs’ and the militarization of the local police….If you dont think there are racial issues then you living on another planet

          • Kim

            There’s a huge race problem in this country. Black people are violently annihilating their own kind daily. Yet when a white person defends himself from a violent black person, he is considered a racist. Explain that.

          • Michael Harkov

            You’re doing it again – not reading what I am saying. AGAIN, what I said was that there are no “racial issues” within the context that is being bandied about by the usual agitators, NOT that there are NO “racial issues” WHATSOEVER. Get it now, FINALLY?

            Considering that there is a black President, a black Attorney General, a black former National Security Advisor, a black former General of the Joint Chiefs, countless black CEO’s running businesses, no, there are NO “racial issues” the way Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Barak Obama, and Oprah Winfrey claim that there are. These are just the usual blathering race-baiters with an ax to grind and an agenda to promote that are fanning the flames of the relatively low level of racial discord that would otherwise be fading away as it has for the last 50 years if it were not for their antics, like what is happening now in Ferguson.

            And now you’ve made an assumption about my race, as well as an assumption as to my socio-economic standing with your comment “only a sheltered white person”. You’ve engaged in strawmen, made false assumptions, and have deliberately obfuscated. You are the intellectual equivalent of the drunk frat boys that smashes beer bottles over their heads and thus believe that they are being entertaining.

            Are we done here? Yes, we’re done here.

          • Barney

            He’s white. Go ask Zimmerman.

          • Michael Harkov

            Thats the spirit. 😉

          • Barney

            Our news reporters are the worst. Right and (mostly) left. BS and outrage sells all around. Fox is pretty much the only right leaning outlet. Or at least they give the right a fair shake. But they need to pull back on the propaganda. Freedom doesn’t need lies.

    • Connor Richards

      Wow, you mean a 21 year old gang member isn’t being held to the same standards as a police officer??? Get out.

  • Yo Mamma

    Jon Stewart is a brilliant man

    The video given to CNN has been censored

    Too gory?
    Hey, most Americans can handle watching a beheading. They can watch a black man, unarmed, hands held high, being shot in broad daylight by a white man and based on statistics, probably christian

    Thanks for the vid, I haven’t laughed and cried so much in a loooong time

    Jon Stewart for president !

    • Daniel Singer

      meh

  • soybomb315

    Actually, what Jon Stewart was discussing was how people on the right dismiss the race factor, claim there is none, or say that they are sick of hearing about it…..So then Jon Stewart responds by describing the economic/racial situation in Ferguson, MI as well as the hypocrisy on the right when they scream all day long about war on christmas but will then dismiss racial issues.

    If you havent watched the actual video yet, please do so….Dont hear it through the filter of the right MSM. Jon Stewart actually makes some good points and the merits of them should be discussed if this news network were really interested in the truth. (that does not mean i agree with everything Jon Stewart said during those 10 minutes)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVjMW4ixHgo

    • Yo Mamma

      Sure people on the right dismiss the race factor. They keep them working an unlivable wage and keep them inline and deny deny deny

      Then they get rich rich rich

      one should never cut the hand that makes one rich

      • G….h.i

        It’s not the minimum wage factor as much as it is government handouts instead of allowing the market to be freed up better so people can create more jobs.

        People that are on government Dow doesn’t have to deal with tax laws as much as those who actually has to work or who runs a business.
        Why do you think people on welfare seems to not understand those who do work and complain about Obamacare and higher taxes?

        • Pachy Serrano

          Because maybe, just maybe . . . They are so freakin’ poor that basic living is living day by day and if they work and get a descent wage they might not be using Gov. Assistance. Let’s say in US there no Gov. assistance at all, none. and You earn $7.25/hr and you have to pay for food, housing, child care, bills, transportation, medical coverage, taxes, education for your kids, etc. Do the Math and then we talk . . .

          • G….h.i

            I do agree on some of what you’ve said. I also know that more debt we have the more tax rates go up.

            Do you think we can grow our economy through government welfare?
            Government welfare is supposed to be a temporary solution and not a life time solution.
            Your right minimum wage jobs aren’t going to be enough. We need more jobs and long term jobs. We need more full time jobs instead of people having to have their hours cut back so someone else can work.

            In order to help grow this economy we need less welfare and more work programs in those poor areas.

            We need restrictions lifted so businesses can hire more people and create more jobs.

            Is it fair for those who work in coal to lose their jobs? I mean these people are American tax payers too.

            There are towns who depend on coal jobs. Now they’re in the hole along with those on welfare. Those who has a part time minimum wage job is doing better than those who lost their job because of strict regulations.

            Obamacare targets the poor and is structured to help the poor instead of being a system that helps all class of Americans.

            Obamacare put the burden right on the backs of middle class working Americans. The rich can find ways to get away from Obamacare and I don’t blame them at all. This is a free country and they have the right to reject Obamacare.

            The middle class though is up to their necks in high tax rates. They have to pay their bills then buy groceries and put money aside for fuel to get to work.

      • Donn N.

        It isn’t minimum wage jobs that keep people (of any race) down. It is the liberal championed welfare system and the constant pounding into blacks that they are victims. If you’re told it enough, you start to believe it and give up trying to be anything any better.

        • Yo Mamma

          You can kick the can down the road for only so long. I hope the average black realizes that they have been getting the short and of the stick for a looooong time

          • Chris Braden

            Playing the victim card I see…

          • Barney

            You mean those racist hiring policies in government jobs and contracts that hire and give them preferences? Yes, been down so darn long.

      • Chris Braden

        Blah, blah, blah blah…..It’s people like you that keep regurgitating the “victim” narrative that keep people down.

        • Yo Mamma

          Pay a livable wage or the corporations will become the victim. But its your choice as a society to accept the ridiculous situation as its been for 200 years

          • landofaahs

            Communists need to be hanged.

          • Pachy Serrano

            Wow! You violent, ah? Don’t forget communists also own guns and will not let anyone hang them. Those times are over. If you talking about another Civil War in America between the Left and the Right . . . it could happen. When? Who knows? Who will win? Who knows? America will be destroyed? Sure it will.

          • Rolltide3332

            That would be a big mistake. The right are NRA card holding members. By the way, on an earlier discussion, I have missed out on two different jobs because I am a white male. Where is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to defend my rights. That is straight up racism. I can play that card also. I took a test for a fireman position and scored in the top 1% but couldn’t get the job because they had to hire a NON Caucasian person. I was given a call and told that they had to go thru two other classes to get someone who could pass all of the tests. I’m tired of hearing that white people are always favored. As Public Enemy said ” Don’t believe the hype!”

          • Shiprex

            maybe those jobs weren’t good enough for you and they thought you’d get out once a better offer came along. Or the other way around

          • landofaahs

            Only a communist would be upset by my comment and since it vexed you so, it is admission that you are a communist. I stand by my statement.

          • Shiprex

            Ahha more Right Wing Gun Tottin’ Bible thumpin’ logic there for you.
            Prove there ISN’T a god ? Can’t do it therefore GOD exists. Did Sarah Palin tell you that one?

          • landofaahs

            I thought scientists looked only at proof? If you cannot prove something wrong then science says you cannot make a statement of fact against it. But to believe that God does not exist, you have to believe that everything created itself. Since you’re so smart, tell me what the first thing was to exist and how did it get here? I wait.

          • Shiprex

            Science is all about proof until something/one shows it to be not so then an adaptation or evolution you could say occurs. Like Newtons Laws being adapted when we observe behaviour inside atoms leading to quantum laws. Observations is the key not lack of them. Existence of God is just as likely as that of fairies, the invisible man, werewolves, vampires, and just as valid as saying Thor or Zeus or Poseidon exist. It’s foolish to assume existence until proven otherwise. There is no observable, verifiable and testable evidence therefore existence is not proven. Using the reverse argument that lack of evidence proves possible is not scientific.
            As for the first thing that existed as far as we know it was the big bang and as for what and where that’s still to be found out. Not knowing something is also not an acceptance or proof of the existence of God so don’t use that as an argument either. How did or why did it happen no one knows and speculation also does not work as proof either. Investigation however will help find out and rather than take the words of MEN who wrote about historical events DECADES and CENTURIES after the events from secondhand and hearsay accounts is not reliable. Given the poor level of recording of history AND that these words were chosen and compiled selectively by MEN centuries later and used by MEN as a tool to control the masses (i.e. a political tool in the dark ages) then I think skepticism wins the argument over Christianity. True morality is one aspect religion brings to communities as does compassion at times and the community and social aspects are no doubt useful. But superstition ? Bad idea.

          • landofaahs

            What was the first thing to exist and how did it get here? The only logical explanation is an eternal creator. The human eye and hand alone are so complex in design and the mathematics keeping the universe together cannot be explained by chance. I doubt Al Gore believes in evolution when it comes to global warming. After all won’t man just adapt to the new climate? Anyway fairies do exist. San Francisco is full of them.

          • Shiprex

            The first thing was the big bang. No creator. Is that really too difficult to comprehend and accept? There is no evidence at all of an external ‘being’ influencing how the universe came about.
            I have to chuckle at the very thought that the eye is such a complex thing that only a wonderous imaginary creator could have made it, then I pop down to the store and see a digital camera that has a greater resolution than the human eye WTF? Humans better than an imaginary guy in the sky? Not to mention the fact that HUMANS can create an eye that can see other wavelengths the eye cannot see and view things in a different realm. Now before you go say there is proof there must have been a designer. Well that isn’t proof of anything but human ingenuity and scientific discovery. Eyes and hands evolved out of necessity (see worm) the variation and developments within species allows for certain ones to flourish while the ones that are less adaptable die off. Now if you expect ALL the examples of EVERY living thing to be found then you are foolish because the conditions on the planet are such that they NEED to be destroyed and consumed by other things or happen to be destroyed by natural events like weather, wind ice, sun, volcanic activity and because this all happened over a very long time the small variations in species with travel and climate helping shape these adaptations (I do believe there are observations (a scientific term to start a debate and investigation to find evidence of what so they can come to conclusions about how and why etc and then the cycle rolls on) that some animals are adapting to the changes in their circumstances caused by global warming though most scientists think the rate of change is too fast for the normal evolutionary process to keep up resulting in mass extinctions (also being observed).
            You use the premise that it cannot be explained by chance without justifying why not? Merely saying that it was because the Purple Skyoctopus did it because she could is ridiculous. Because you don’t understand it doesn’t mean others can’t. That is ignorance and no way should that be any way to make judgments or give guidance. Go and learn, find out that’s what science is about. Not knowing is fine. Finding out is better.
            As for evolution you really had me spluttering my corn flakes lol. Evolution has facts and evidence. Worms head toward dark spaces because they have light sensitive parts on their bodies. Those who didn’t (by chance) tended to get gobbled up by other creatures in the past (I mean millions of years not the few thousand you seem to think constitutes the Universe.

          • landofaahs

            What caused the big bang. Where did the energy come from dumbass.

          • Shiprex

            Duh!!
            That’s what science is in the process of finding stoopid.
            Rather than just say it was the Purple Headed Spaghetti Monster (which is as likely an outcome as the bearded white cloaked imaginary friend you have) science is fine with not knowing. Using observations to form hypothesis then make more observations to refine understanding so theories can become laws rather than just say because the bible tells me so.

          • SRM29

            I don’t understand you people. Why is it so unacceptable for us to believe in God? I read your post and all i see is animosity, which i do not understand. I’m not saying “you must believe in God!” in a chant while beating you with my Bible.
            Just show a little respect. The mocking and treating us like uneducated hicks? Come on… Many Christians are very educated and hold great positions. We don’t believe just because the Bible told us so. It takes faith. I’m sure you got a laugh out of that. But i’m serious.

          • Shiprex

            I did get a laugh out of it thanks and I know most religionists are good people but that’s not because of religion. The goodness comes from being brought up well not in following a superstition. However religion should be a personal thing, like sex. Done between consenting ADULTS in the privacy of their own home, not a tax break for certain ‘preacher types’ and paedophiles (why it should be open only to adults and children kept well out of it). If it interferes in everyday life it should be stopped.

          • BlueMN

            You should’ve seen his comments about Central American refugee children. First he wants to “spank their little behinds,” then shoot them and leave their dead bodies in the desert.

          • landofaahs

            Most of those little children have gray Hair adorning their temples. How did they get up here all by themselves?

          • landofaahs

            Just consider it a retroactive abortion and you will be fine with it.

          • landofaahs

            Spoken like a drug cartel member who uses children to invade a country and work as drug pushers.

          • landofaahs

            If these so-called children were crossing our border with machine guns killing our adults and children, would you be for shooting them or just letting them kill us at their pleasure? Answer or you are a hypocrite. Which I will prove you to be no matter how you answer. LOL

          • landofaahs

            I’ll ask you again. If these so-called children were armed with guns and killing our adults and children, would you be okay with killing them or should we all just let them kill us?

          • Shiprex

            Just after the fascists and 1% then their wealth can make LOTS of people dry and comfortable and even allow the American dream to become a possibility for more than 1%.

          • landofaahs

            Blame big government and the Federal Reserve fractional banking system where a hand full of big banks only are allowed to bid on the treasuries. I don’t like crony capitalism but I do like Laissez Faire economics. I do like a gold standard also.

          • Shiprex

            I too blame the banking system around the world and go further to include the whole corporate mentality of profit at all costs. This is greed driven economics and not prosperity driven (and by prosperity I mean it benefits all parties involved. Unfortunately US economics is too intertwined with the government and corporations/lobbyists and special interest groups having more say than the people who put the government in place. There is not a wide enough gap between certain politicians and these groups. If you think about the HoR how does the average persons situation compare with the wealth of those who represent them? Is that House ACTUALLY representative of the population? I doubt it very much. Those in power are there because they came from power/money and the chance of anyone from outside those cliques getting in is impossible. The American Dream is just that a dream and will always be until the people of America fix it to get the best not the wealthiest. running it for the benefit of the people of the country.

          • landofaahs

            Profit at all costs. Do you mean like the abortion industry and those who profit from the body parts?

          • Shiprex

            So they sell these unready body parts? Who to? Other unborn fetuses? That makes no sense.

          • landofaahs

            Corporations such as Burger King through Warren Buffett are moving the HQ;s to to other countries because The U.S. taxes too much.

          • Shiprex

            See that’s loyalty for you. Good ol’ free market driven economics can’t beat them, move to somewhere you can produce more cheaply/more profitable.
            Loyalty is a bad.
            Greed is good

          • landofaahs

            Loyalty works both ways. Why is the government and the leaches of society so greedy as to want almost half of everything you make. And that’s just federal taxes excluding state and local. Money is like water it goes where it is treated best and finds it’s own level. I’m glad they are moving. I just wish democrat Warren Buffett wasn’t such a hypocrite.

          • Shiprex

            Money begets money.
            Those who have keep it and use it for their own benefit.
            That’s why there’s such a huge wealth gap in US (and UK) and next to no social mobility creating stagnation and no opportunity.
            This event is the working class trying to get a fair deal.
            Also Just remember who/what it is that ALLOWS you to make all that money and at whose expense ANSWER Government and the people alongside you not the benevolence of the top 1%.
            Market forces are all about exploitation and not about mutual benefit.
            Greed is not a value a society should cherish and adore. Compassion and fairness are far more valuable.

          • landofaahs

            We have a wealth gap because of many things including government meddling, an intelligence gap between people, and a motivation gap between people. I don’t go into business except to make money. If I am not engaged in crony capitalism, then I am successful only if I provide a good or service that the market place wants and desire. So I am serving the consumers needs by providing a good or service for the right price. That is true fairness delivered by the collective marketplace..

          • Shiprex

            Who provides the structure for you to start and run your business without which people could rip you off not pay for your ‘goods’ or ‘services’? The government.
            Who thinks living on welfare is a life of luxury?
            Who thinks they do not have a responsibility to the community they live in and by default the people there in?
            Who supports you when something unfortunate happens and there is a robbery, natural disaster, accident? Who stops your vendors from giving poor service, your customers from suing you for false purposes? Or more precisely who maintains those services YOUR business needs to be able to flourish in? Market forces don’t have the answers otherwise Wild West scenarios becomes the MO for society and that didn’t work out too well for a lot of people. Sharing prosperity is not a market force tenet but seen by the right as a burden they should not deem to carry. Employers do not see responsibility to employees as benefit to business wither. Ethical standards of employment are seldom regarded as worthy and tend to be ignored by the right or seen as weakness by the 1%ers.

          • landofaahs

            Who provides for the structure of government? We just want it limited. The military is the only thing the federal government should be funding in my book. The military protects everyone. You act like only government can build a road or bridge. Politicians get their hands on the tax money before a PRIVATE company even gets to start building. You have it backwards.

          • Shiprex

            the government should only run the military? Are you Kidding? That’s how North Korea, China in the past and Russia were run. That’s fascism. If you let the greedy run everything else you end up with extreme wealth gaps and poverty. A country that is rich with a high wealth gap will not be settled. The rich will keep exploiting their power and with no one keeping them in check then what? Revolution? That’s schoolboy politics and economics. When money is the driving force behind business then the negative human values become prevalent. Greed, lust, envy, gluttony etc all trump the values of compassion, empathy, trust. not a pretty place. You come across as someone who doesn’t trust politicians yet trust corporations. Now that Americans regard corporate personhood as a concept then I can see a dim future for the ‘Land of the Free’.

          • landofaahs

            No, it’s closer to our original constitution. Of course we should have a court system (limited). But very few agencies are really needed. And no I don’t trust politicians. If you do then the conversation is over because I refuse to banter with a fool.

          • Shiprex

            That’s the problem you trust CEOs who are where they are most likely by the process of exploitation (good and bad) and through not influence of yours yet the people you CHOOSE to be your leaders you don’t believe in and distrust? What kind of a system is that? Some Joe Shmo who got rich because his ancestors used slaves and made a fortune that way is more trustworthy than the guy you vote for? Naive and foolish? I think so. Perhaps you need to get professional politicians (but you do) perhaps you need to stop letting lobbyists have free access to them. Their lives should be open books then you can see what they are up to and trust can be established.
            Crazy set up where you choose you leaders yet don’t trust them.

            In a free market, the government would not be bothering companies and making rules that force them to leave dumbass. Inversion with Burger King means that they will pay taxes in America from sales in America. Without the inversion, the company would have to pay taxes on sales in foreign countries and America. Government gets too greedy and then the old saying goes. “Pigs get fat but hogs get slaughtered”.

          • Shiprex

            In a free market you would hope companies would trickle down success to employees instead of passing off the gains obtained from the workers to shareholders. It’s not the shareholders who do the work it’s the workers and living off the back of another’s labour and not rewarding them for it fairly is the route to slavery.

            As for taxes being paid would you be satisfied if a company set up business in your community/country though passed all its financial details through a second community/country so that it minimised its taxes paid to your community? That’s loophole is what inversion is about. Barsucks as a hypotheitical example that set up its head office in community/state/country X where corporation tax is lower than your community/state/country. In X Barsucks does only a fraction of the business that it does in your community/state/country. Because of tax agreements between your community/state/country and community/state/country X this is all above board. Now is that right and proper honest and loyalty you hope to provide your home community/state/country? Because that’s inversion for you. It’s not the government/people/community that get’s the benefits of the trade but the shareholders and corporations.

          • landofaahs

            The shareholders put up the money for investment and without it there would be no job for the worker. Why should people who do not take the risk of loss want all the benefit? They often pack up and leave the company if they can get a little bit better deal somewhere else. Why is that not disloyal. But I believe each should do what they think best for themselves. It’s called the free market. Customers, labor, shareholders and management are all better served by free choice.

          • Shiprex

            So when you INVEST your time and EFFORT in a job (be it through an employer or as self employed) you don’t deserve an equitable share of the profits? As for employment law well done for putting only the side of the WEALTHY. The employer has just as much right to terminate the employment in the US as an employee has to leave. There aren’t always shareholders who put up the funds to start a business. When the free movement of capital becomes stymied through passing off profits to shareholders more than rewarding workers there is a problem. If you have cash sploshing around that you can put into something else to make money on you can afford to lose that. A workers attachment to a job is far stronger and more important. Rewarding gambling is what happened in 2008 and look who suffered there. Banks/Bankers/Financiers NO, people/workers/houseowners YES. If each did as they pleased then you end up with feudal serfdoms where slavery and abuse by those with power/money and this is what America is becoming. Trickle down economics is not happening. The rich are rich and getting richer while the poor stagnate or get poorer. That’s a poor society that promotes envy, lust, greed, gluttony and many other traits of humanity. Where is sharing, compassion, trust in that? You trust your boss to give you a fair share of the outcome of your labour? Does your boss show compassion when you have personal issues that need time or does that have to fall into the charity realm of behaviour. Trusting the powerful and wealthy to improve the lives of everyone is naive and why America no longer offers the Dream that thinks is possible.

          • landofaahs

            The terms for pay and employment should be agreed upon before both parties shake hands. If fact I believe that you should get your paycheck and the whole gross and let the responsibility for the employee to pay his taxes out of it. It would force responsibility on all parties. Why should a company do the withholding? If you employees are so smart and valuable, then it should be no problem. I suppose the first day on the job you think that employee should own a percentage of it. Well don’t worry boy because robots are about to put an end to most of this argument. Then you will be forced to go into business for yourself and then you’ll be forced to do your whole withholding and investing for your retirement. I can’t wait.

          • Shiprex

            I have worked with that very sort of tax paying situation and on the whole it isn’t so tough to do your own tax returns but that was at a steady job with only one employer. The employer also had to provide PAID time to do your tax form otherwise people could easily skip town without paying and who’s then responsible? How does the government get it’s money that you had and gave it to an irresponsible person?
            Exploitation is where it goes wrong. Working together for mutual gain is how it should be. Given that employers have the resources to create jobs but don’t or to improve conditions but don’t who looks out for the employee? Sure he can look elsewhere but that solves no problems. Cooperative employment contracts with equal gain for the business as well as the employee is the way forward. Working harder or smarter benefits both and so BOTH parties should gain. This seldom happens. Profit driven policy seeks only to get more out by giving less and that just creates divisions within society. We’re all in the same boat and have the same needs and desires. Why should some have them and disallow others because they want even more?

          • Shiprex

            When things get tight or tough who protects the majority (workers) of people? Who pays for that protection?
            Selfishness helps few. Collaboration helps many.

          • Shiprex

            The rules are made for already wealthy corporations to spread that wealth less in their direction and more to the ones MAKING them wealthy as well as making sure they don’t screw up things like the environment, the atmosphere, etc. They are there to keep them doing business properly rather than cutting corners and abusing their workers or the system. The same system let them get so powerful in the first place.

      John Stewart might have made a good point about connections between the economy and some racism in America. He however likes to make it out to be bigger of an issue than what it really is.
      Take the minimum cases and turn those cases into a larger number without facts to back up the claim.
      This tactic is used by the left every time we have a debate on anything.
      But when you get away from those antiques and look at the statistics. You’ll find that we have A very low number of cases of white on black crime and racial police brutality.

      In the cases of white cops beating or shooting unarmed blacks but thankfully we’ve had solid evidence to determine what actually took place.

      This case isn’t as easy to determine because the investigation is still on going.

      John Stewart is an agitator and nothing more.

    • Latin2

      But, Jon Stewart used black men not getting a cab as his main point, yet the majority of cab drivers not picking up black men are also men of color.

      • Shiprex

        So there’s racism ffs don’t you get it?
        This just highlights the fact but you choose to ignore the information about the actual event. Re COPS v locals and that a guy was charged with damaging government property because he bled on thei uniforms after he had been beaten by them? WTF if you think that’s ok and don’t want to hear about it then you are ignorant which is actually the point Stewart is making.

        • Aaron Mounts

          You don’t get it. The racism in this day and age is OVERWHELMINGLY perpetrated by black and other groups against the white population. You have chosen to ignore the actual, confirmed facts about the Ferguson, MO event, including the confirmed fact that the cop had been assaulted by Brown. You also ignore the fact that “unarmed” does not–in any way, shape, form or fashion–equal “not a threat.”

          Yes, these facts ARE relevant, but people like you want to conveniently ignore or gloss over them because they don’t suit your desired narrative.

          • Shiprex

            So the racism is there and who has the power in the US? Whites? Blacks? Hispanics? Native Americans?

            The whites and thus the answer to fixing this is the whites now which ethnicity do the Right tend to be and the power base they have tend to have LOTS of $s so instead of let them pick on each other (still don’t get how a black kid using violence against another black kid is racist though but I don’t subscribe to Fox).

            You are giving assumptions about the events rather than facts regarding he’d been assaulted. POLICE say he assaulted the cops, eyewitnesses say he was surrendering. Now I suppose you missed the recent news about the cop who shot and killed a Black Labrador because he felt threatened by it. It so happened the dog was INSIDE A SHUT car and he shot it through the window. Now I would be very suspicious of perpetrators perspectives are taken as facts whether or not they are officers of the law or not.

            Here’s an account of an unrelated witness

            Tiffany Mitchell’s account

            This is what Mitchell, who saw the shooting while on her way to pick up an employee in the area of the shooting, said happened: She first saw a struggle between Brown and Wilson, with Brown trying to push away from the police car and Wilson trying to pull the teenager into the vehicle. The first gunshot then came from the car, while both of Brown’s hands were outside the vehicle. At that point, Brown broke away and started running down the street. Wilson chased after Brown while shooting at the teenager. Brown’s body jerked, as if he was hit, and he turned around, stood still, and put his hands up. Wilson continued shooting Brown even as the teenager attempted to surrender, and Brown went down.

            Don’t know about you but someone RUNNING away gets shot at? WTF is that kind of defense for lethal force? Then when he stops he gets a few more shots to the body and head AFTER HIS HANDS WERE UP. How is that justifiable homicide?
            Now in case you miss the main points are
            RUNNING AWAY
            STOPPED
            HANDS UP
            That’s from a simple search now. The police statement isn’t quite as vivid as the one (there are others that corroborate though) but in the end the cop shoots from his car at the fleeing kid after the kid pushes the cop back into the car, kid stops turns around, cop doesn’t see what kids hands are doing but cop fears for his life when kid turns around but comes at him so he sees his legs move.
            Now will the truth come out? 90% white judiciary in a black community

    • Duane L Petersen

      94 % of the cab drivers in New York are foreigners from India, Pakistan, or Bangladesh that only leaves 6% as the ones that are the from America and that is not broke down by race so that means that all those neurosurgeons have to be hitting less then 5% that are white Americans or as is the usual case Stewart is full of bull excrement and has no idea of what he is talking about. I do have to wonder if the fact that of all crimes the 13 % of the population that is the African Americans commits 50%. This is not racism this is self preservation. As far as the incident in Ferguson when this moron can predict the weather I might be convinced of his percognitional ability as to the future and what happened in that town to believe his BS without any evidence that is not prejudice in any way. .

      • Shiprex

        So you’re saying there is a racism problem within the racial community of taxi drivers? So there’s RACISM don’t be ignorant of it.
        Those crime stats perhaps go to show the inherent racism in the criminal justice system.
        First off, find the nearest black and blame him. Job done. Next case

      • MarkMBoudreaux

        If Stewart’s allegation is really happening, then one has to wonder how un-racist foreigners are before they arrive in America, and what makes them racist once they have lived here a while.

        • Duane L Petersen

          The answer to your question is he probably had one or more of their fellow drivers getting killed by some black punk. I drove a cab for 2 years but not in New York and I had a gun pulled on me 4 times and all 4 were by a black man. Now I know that this is just a happenstance and not all blacks are robbers but it sure made me a lot more wary and when I picked up a black man after the 4th time I had my hand on my 44 mag.. As I said in the previous post it called self preservation and if someone is going to get their head blown off I will do everything in my power to make sure that it is not me and that includes going into areas where there is a good chance of getting shot. If you call that racism then that make you the racist and dumber then a box of rocks.

      It’s not that anyone’s claiming there is none. But there are some claiming it’s everywhere and in every situation and the behavior of the individual doesn’t seem to matter at all.

            A nation founded on and by immigrants to not standing up for or showing compassion for immigrants when those child immigrants aren’t allowed in to your country as YOU think they would be better off back to those shitholes in South America where they came from because YOU just can’t accept them …. still not heard single moral justification for those tens of thousands of kids sent back to the poverty, rape, violence their parents sent them away from.

            So tell me how can your answer to everything “MARKET” solve those problems? There is no trickle down economic policy going on that’s a fiction passed on by the 1% to everyone watching TV. Look at the wealth gap in your country, look at how socially mobile people are. They aren’t because they are oppressed. The working man of America will have kids who are less likely to progress into other strata of society than just about ANY other modern country.

      You do realize that a recent study found that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert viewers more informed than Fox News viewers. So, no they aren’t journalists, they are better. I don’t suppose you consider the irrelevant ignoramus twit of talk radio, that is Buck Sexton, a real news journalist, do you?

        Are they better? Or are the “journalists” at Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC, really just faces for talking points?

      • Aaron Mounts

        You do realize that politicsusa.com has about as much credibility as Rachel Maddow (or anyone else) at MSNBC. A blog site that masquerades as politically neutral while being left-wing extremist to as great an extent as Huff Post or Daily Kos is nowhere near credible.

  • brucesat

    There is a huge gulf in perception between white and black America about what race relations look like. Fox is in the business of pandering to the white perception that everything is just fine and that all attempts to draw attention to actual racial injustice is nothing but a political ploy.

    White America likes to normalize the power differential and say that it doesn’t matter. But try to imagine what would happen if you had a majority white community being patrolled by a majority black police force and there were routine acts of police brutality/violence on the residents. We know what would happen, a weather event of fecal proportions! But we reverse the scenario and it seems normal, and complaints of brutality, overreach and violence by a white police force on a majority black community are downplayed. Any attempt to draw attention to these issues is called “playing the race card.”

    Fox news plays to the narrative that white on black aggression in the form of police aggression, excessive force, higher incarceration rates, longer jail sentences and profiling are all justified because of the understanding that blacks are just more prone to violence. White supremacy is therefore always justified and excused.

    • soybomb315

      Its like when pro-constitution republicans organize themselves and attend a republican convention and outnumber the establishment republicans and then the establishment republicans change the rules or break the rules to keep out the pro-constitution types and then when it is over the dismiss the allegations of what just happened and nobody seems to care.

      • brucesat

        The Democrats the Republicans are now both corporate entities that sell a product; access to government coffers. They do this by advertising their brands to voters. They will let you play along if it helps their image, but they will not let you into the workings of party power, especially if what you do threatens their product.

  • Pachy Serrano

    It’s not race baiting folks. Get it finally in your head. Most Americans are not racist, but that does not mean there is racism. Most Police officers are great descent professionals, but there are always few bad apples. The issue is not the media coverage, but what we are going to do after many similar issues come up too often. Gang crimes in Chicago, Detroit, and D.C. are not the same than a PD shooting an unarmed teen because “maybe” he pushed him or called him names . . . If I was to shoot and kill anyone who call me names and push my buttons I should be in jail. Its like when our parents tell us . . . think before you speak, think before you act. We need to listen before we talk and we need to teach our children that every life white or black, brown or yellow, old or young, poor or rich, is valuable. Keep moving, keep changing . . . Peace!!

    • Leslie Martin Wiley

      I agree that there is racism. I don’t agree that racism = whites treating blacks in a racist manner as the working definition of racism, though. What happened in Ferguson so far definitely was racism. Because the officer is white, there were those that assumed he committed an “execution” against an innocent black man.

    • SinStar

      You lost me at “Most Police officers are great descent professionals.”

  • zrevtom

    I would say Jon Stewart is funny, but he isn’t I would say he is intelligent, he is but refuses to use it because then they would think he is just another smart white man who used the system to make progress in this world on the backs of the blacks just because he is white. Oh sorry that is what all the Democrats say about Republicans, what they fail to say is that they themselves are WHITE and they have made MILLIONS of dollars because they like Stewart used the same system as Republicans but the Democrats only TALK about helping Blacks thus keeping them under their control while Republicans actually want to help Blacks HELP THEMSELVES, they want to give them a chance to do better for themselves and their families while Democrats want to help keep them down and in poverty.
    Stewart would never use THE TRUTH, he won’t be popular and he wants the Money. He is not Stupid, HE JUST ACTS THAT WAY.

  • snaildaddy

    He’s criticizing the wrong part of the Stewart video. Stewart’s comments in that little blip were a little exaggerated, but still very very possible. The main point he was trying to make in his whole monologue that night was that there is an unfair racial divide in this country. It doesn’t give the Right the right to blame democrats for playing “the race card.” If striving to have serious talks about how we treat minorities in this country is playing the race card, then we’re gonna play a full deck of race cards until the Right stops criticizing the reporting of a serious issue and actually TALKS ABOUT FIXING THE SERIOUS ISSUE and recognizes how exhausting it is for people with dark skin to live in this country, instead of receding into their little ignorant white world.

    • Harry Lare

      I’m exhausted of working and I’m white. Why do you believe that this problem is strictly on the shoulders of blacks?

  • Erin R MD

    I dunno. It was a solid monologue. The guy is hilarious. And annoying as hell. But he made valid points in between his ridiculous exaggerations. It’s irresponsible to say otherwise. The bottom line is that Stewart, while validating the true experiences of so many blacks, failed to put responsibility on the black community for its shortcomings. No, whites should not be their black brothers’ keepers. So where are all the black cops in Fergusen?

    • soybomb315

      what about the ‘white community’ silence regarding militarization of police forces? Is it blind ignorance or tacit encouragement?

      What about the ‘white community’ silence regarding discriminatory judicial and sentencing system?

      It’s easy to blame ‘black community’ for not doing this-or-that, but what is your ‘racial community’ doing about these issues?

    • Erin

      I don’t have a “racial community,” nor do the majority of whites. Those communities that are based on the color of their skin are white supremacists, Aryans. My community is colorblind and international, predominantly Latino. My family is multiracial. We have had 2 police officers in the family. Both were assigned to black communities. Our black police officer family member was killed on the job by a black man. Our white police officer caught a black baby that had been thrown out of a second story window by a black boyfriend of the black mother. He also repeatedly got in trouble with his black boss because he would not wait for an ambulance to arrive and would take hemmorhaging victims of black on black crime in his police car to the hospital. His black boss always got pissed off that he messed up the car with blood. He has also been shot at by black men. So, I’m all for giving whatever protection police officers of any color what they need to protect themselves. There are 5 black men in my chain of command preventing me from providing to my predominantly black patient population the care they need. The “black community” is schizoid, with lower socioeconomic folks rejecting “successful” blacks, accusing them of betraying and abandoning the community. My patients have included an 18yo black woman DOA with a GSW to the left chest and staples in her C-section incision, an intoxicated 40+yo black woman whose unlicensed kids drove her to the ER because she was semi-comatose, a black 20+yo woman with 10 abortions under her belt, a black 16yo male with crack lung so severe he didn’t make it to his 17th birthday. My “white culture” has accepted and financially supported a huge influx of impoverished Somali refugees, one of whom perpetrated the terrorist assault in the Nairobi, Kenyan mall. Many of my family have served you, protecting your Constitutional rights to free speech and your safety. My patient population uses the N-word as a term of affection as much as an insult. Totally dysfunctional and not the responsibility of whites. Your somewhat rabid assumptions are off, and very telling. You know nothing of any significance about my worldview.

  • Nunya bidness

    So let me get this straight. Your excusing the cab drivers racism, because the black man he sees trying to get a cab, might ask him to drop him off at Bed-Stuy?

    When black people stop killing each other. Stop selling and buying drugs to and from each other. When they stop having to put bars on the windows of their homes in their own neighborhoods to keep out other black people, not white people, then maybe I will starting listening to their rants about whites hating blacks. When black people stop being used by democrats as modern day slaves, and when democrats believing that black people need to be taken care of because they can’t take care of themselves and when democrats stop making excuses for black people and stop thinking that black people cannot progress in their own lives maybe then I won’t think democrats are the biggest racist people in this country.

            I understand your peasant mentality references. I’m sure you can see yourself as one of the beneficent feeders of the masses. They can stand in line with their bowls while you dip nutritious and economical dishes for them. They can relax in the splendor of their government supplied housing and all they have to do in return is vote for Democrats. What a blissful life you would supply for them! Everyone, except for our super-educated elite leaders, living an equally minimal life of eating, sleeping, breeding and voting. It’ll be great! All of those bleating masses cared for by caring and well-paid keepers of the herd. Caring for them, moderating their ignorant excesses, insuring their compliance and directing them to follow the “proper course” in life. That’s what you are offering us in return for the complete loss of our freedom to choose.

          • Shiprex

            I don’t mind paying tax for a stable society that cares for those in need when they need. For making sure that should anything unfortunate happen to me or those around me.
            Paying tax for a society that creates opportunity for ALL not only those who can afford opportunities.
            Paying tax for those projects that keep people off the streets by providing for them until they are able to do so for themselves.
            Paying tax for the public servants who keep the streets and public offices running efficiently.
            I do mind paying tax to bail out banks whose employees gambled with other peoples money by creating ‘products’ without
            that they would get a disproportionate share of irrespective of the

            I do mind paying for tax breaks from super wealthy corporations who pay their employees slave wages but encourage them to use food banks just to live.
            Aren’t you describing a right wing utopia? Where the ruling elite super rich are responsible for the upkeep of the rest of society by making themselves more wealthy and taking more and more from the finite pot leaving less and less for more and more unfortunate people who do not share the greed gene with those in the 1%. Just remember who set up the system that allows the few to become super rich. There are a lot of others out there doing worthwhile things for communities than making money, the religion of the Right.
            As for choice for the masses, the right’s options for choice tend to be work for the minimum (or as little as I can get away with) while the right bask in the glory of unregulated bliss while benefiting from your work, or don’t eat.
            I guess that market isn’t such a great place to be a part of.
            Community values and social justice are not dirty concepts.

          • Shiprex

            Benevolent I may be but right now I don’t pay tax but my wife does. i have though paid tax willingly and received rebates too though I left my last place of work because of the fact that my taxes did not go to supporting elderly, disabled, infirm and poor. Specifically only charity work supports the blind where I worked before, the general occupation for many elderly is to collect recycling materials from housing/business so they can sell them so they can feed themselves, and the unemployed get less in a week than I paid in tax in a day. Yeah the ultimate in capitalism where no one knew their neighbour, People wold walk past someone lying in the street trying as best they could to ignore them and even seeing them as a nuisance. Not for me. where I live now tax is 3 times as much salary only 2/3rds what I got but no one is on the street, elderly are cared for properly, people are placed in appropriate occupations and men and women get the same parental leave when they have kids (200 days). 5 weeks holiday, free medical and education including Higher education. So that $ in my salary may translate to less on paper but the benefits it affords as a result (market forces to get the BEST not cheapest, brought in by trustworthy politicians who are there because they WANT to serve their country MEN & WOMEN rather than help their school or college or business as is the case in US/UK alike). Social democracy and strong government isn’t perfect but as far as allowing a work to live existence instead of the other way around it’s far superior.

  • Sassy3000

    WTF?! What DRUGS are Stewart and his audience smoking? Most of the Cab Drivers in and around the city I live in are Somalians! And Last time I checked, Somalians Were Black!
    And I’ve had dozens of them as cab drivers and NO TWO WERE ALIKE!
    They were all different! So is Stewart trying to say that in New York, Most Cab Drivers are…………………….WHITE? WTF AGAIN?! I’ve seen movies, tv shows about new york city and MOST of the ones they hire to PLAY Cab Drivers are Minorities from this country as well as from others.
    But I’m guessing a Prima donna like Stewart Rarely Takes a Cab anywhere. Or else he pays NO attention to the person driving the cab. I guess they’re beneath his notice unless he needs to use them as a PROP for one of his ignorant little monologues.

      • Shiprex

        So racism is rife. Who has the means to fox it? Which ethnic group has all the power?

        • ddcannady

          Why do you think it is that one ethnic group has all the power? If it’s true, how did it come to be that way? Did the other ethnic groups not try hard enough or what? Which ethnic group actually liberated themselves from the tyranny of monarchy? Which ethnic group actually freed the slaves in the United States and at what cost in lives and property?

          • Shiprex

            It came to be that the original ethnic group did not regard the new ethnic group as threatening so showed them compassion and worked with them This trust was broken by the new comers, who brought with them other ethnic groups to work for them exploiting the natural resources found in the new land. The set up mechanisms so they could protect their wealth and power and made it nigh on impossible to depose them from this temple of power. Some in the powerful ethnic group developed sympathies for the ones kidnapped and brought to the lands to work for the powerful and so they were nominally given freedoms but the structures and mechanisms were in place to maintain the status quo to keep those same group in place never to be removed.
            That’s just a quick take on the history of America. Not too how the original groups are given the power since after all, most people there are of immigrant stock. Ironic and sad that they now look upon other immigrants as lesser and untrustworthy than themselves. Lucky for them the original aboriginals didn’t see them in the same light. Perhaps America would still be a free country.

          • ddcannady

            All “ethnic groups” have been conquerors and oppressors of others at some point in history. The most successful conquerors were white people. That has been the nature of humanity for so many centuries that there is no counting them. Just because the other “ethnic groups” were less capable doesn’t confer on them some sort of morality. Weakness is not a virtue and only those who seek an advantage try to convince others that it is so. Certainly, the left has come a long way in making Americans emotionally sensitive and compliant, but it is a predatory activity that has accomplished little. I’m sure you resent the fact that private gun ownership is still allowed, but you can forget that dream. There are more of us who value our freedom and independence than you can imagine. Don’t push too hard or there will be pushback. Even blacks are beginning to see through your phoney balonyisms.

          • ddcannady

            You know, I do get it. You have a conscience that encompasses everyone and extends back in history to include everyone affected by the founding of the United States. You are superior to all of us and should be a decider among us of who is worthy and unworthy. We should all submit to your superior compassion and accept that our nature is evil and that, if we will submit to your leadership, equality and fraternity would spread like the scent of honeysucles on a warm summer breeze.What you would like to create is a society of meek dependents from whom you can receive reliable support and gratitude for interceding on their behalf and taking from the productive to provide them a minimal exitence for which they must do nothing but vote for you while you peacefully feed on the productive. You would be as the royals from whom we liberated themselves so long ago because you immigrant ancestors never fought to gain their freedom, but took advantage of what better men built right here in America and you resent the arrogance of those who actually take pride on their individual liberty.

          • Shiprex

            Lol I’m glad you’re making progress and getting the idea that being part of a society rather than fighting it is a whole lot more productive. However you still have the childish mindset that a society should be hierarchical, when that’s more akin to how things should be. America merely followed the traditional social structures but replaced aristocracy (people who may or may not have compassion for the rest of society) with corporations (organisations with sole purpose of exploitation for profit).
            America learned nothing about how to build a better society. These promises of liberty and freedom just provide the illusion that you have something that you don’t.
            So well done for making some progress there

    There really is more accountability that Stewart and Colbert may find themselves addressing one day all too soon. I hope that I am wrong but frankly there are too many who as many previously has stated a large group of people believe these two are reporting actual news instead of parody and due to the inaccuracies of truthful reporting or jumping to conclusions before facts are available, tensions and emotions are running quite high in many areas of our nation. I don’t know that Stewart or Colbert provide a disclaimer that they are not offering journalistic truth for their chosen topics. Its a given with SNL but these two have a tendency not to be honest in the least when they choose to selectively endorse any, all or one of their personal agendas and its politically motivated as well as too often encouraging divisiveness not a balanced perspective of two viewpoints.

    • Shiprex

      Quite sure they don’t need to because the state of US legal system, they’d be penniless in an instant if they fabricated any of the truth. Parody of the truth doesn’t make the truth any less true.

            Heaping ridicule on your opposition only works if you are able to demonstrate that your ideas are superior. So far, so failed. Simply claiming to have superior motivations isn’t a suitable substitute for actually being correct. Nothing succeeds like success, but winning elections on false premises can only get you so far. At some point, you have to deliver the goods. Juicing the stock market and pandering to the loonie left is just not getting anywhere.

          • Shiprex

            If they’re ideas arise from a lack of thought or from prejudice it is right to bring them to task for it. Ridicule is just one way of improving the political process on all fronts (not just Blue v Red polarised political spectrum the US is so (in)famous for).
            I would say getting universal medical care isn’t too bad a step in the direction of caring for the people who chose you to work for them. Sure the concept of democracy is unfair for the minority but actively hindering the normal everyday operation of the government? That is treasonous. Like not giving soldiers ammunition or putting fuel into tanks. And for what? Because the government wanted to do something for the poorest least fortunate in society. Tut, tut where’s all that compassion they teach you in the Churches across the nation (or is it no longer a virtue?)

          • ddcannady

            I have heard the cold calculations of politicians who support the expansion of government responsibility and authority. It was all about the votes. But, you might say, what harm if good is done for the sake of those votes? The harm comes from the politicization of vital societal functions because politics is as much an enterprise as any other avenue of ambition. And, you have spoken of capitalism as if it represents a separate form of humanity from those who are in the public sector. You seem to confer a greater morality on Federal employees than on the management of a private company, but all evidence shows you are wrong. Corruption and dishonesty pass through all of society and will not be lessened by giving government greater control of business, even healthcare. You claim to prefer the institutionalization of compassion through government programs, but compassion is a human emotion and, if we don’t have it now, a huge government program will not impose it on us. It will only create greater opportunities for unscrupulous and uncaring people to take advantage of others.A level playing field can only be achieved by having an objective and even-handed societal referee under whom a fair and equitable rule of law is applied equally to all. Granting the government the authority to take from some to give to others is only an institutionalization of corruption because that authority is also the power to withhold from some and grant to others. What ruling organization wouldn’t be tempted to use that power to insure their own supremacy? Don’t say Democrats! They have been pounding the drums of fear ever since SS was started. No. Where you want to take us makes us beholden to a ruling class. Private employers can’t force us to work for them. If the government becomes the manager of businesses, they will have the authority to require us to perform jobs as they dictate. Human resource decisions will be made for political reasons and not based on merit or fairness, if businesses are managed by the government. It would lead to a ruling class and peasant class. I’m sure you can see yourself exercising noblesse oblige.

          • Shiprex

            Politicisation for the benefit of society is a whole lot better than commercialisation of basic human needs. When people make money (and gain power) off the basic necessities to sustain life then close scrutiny is a MUST. Do you really think corporations have the best interests of customers at heart? Or that politicans (although many US tend to be in bed with those same corporations) are more likely to pervert the services they provide to the PEOPLE not the CORPORATE PERSONHOODS?
            Ensuring compassion through profit isn’t workable. The whole concept drive for business is to MAKE money not promote VALUES (not an emotion) . Government is there to ensure business runs smoothly and properly for the benefit of business AND communities as well as the workers and customers. You surely don’t believe that the super rich want more to come and share the countries (finite) wealthy do you? That is naive. They are in it to stay and accumulate MORE. Look at the trends in the wealth gap in US? It’s not because people don’t want to work of course they do it’s part of most people’s identity. They often HAVE to work or find other ways to survive (crime). That is because employers are not being made to spread the wealth they create. It seems like they work on the concept that ‘you can never have too much and there is no such thing as being rich enough’. That is why Ferguson happened and Americans are doing nothing about it. System is failing the people it was meant to serve.

          • ddcannady

            It is not a coincidence that the wealth gap has increased under Democrat control. It is caused by high unemployment and ridiculous benefits programs. But, on top of everything is the massive overhead of government largesse. We haven’t had free markets in anything for nearly 50 years. With all of the massive government intrusion, to have the complete nerve to blame free enterprise for the disgusting conditions Americans now face is ignorant beyond comprehension. The reason the investor class is doing so well is because they have been given tons of printed money straight out of the Fed in order to keep the stock market high so idiots, like you, could point to that a an accomplishment of Obama and slam capitalism all at the same time.More people moved into the middle class under Calvin Coolidge, in the 20’s, than at any other time in history. If the stupid Federal Reserve hadn’t led people to believe that they could invest in the stock market with no risk, the Great Depression wouldn’t have happened. Your idiotic belief that the government can make better decisions than individuals has no basis in reality.

            So you think having free markets that decide the rate of pay for workers (when there is a shortage of jobs) so they can pay whatever they like with no responsibility for a minimum or livable wage is acceptable?

            You try to blame individuals (who freed up the markets) for the state of play when in fact the lust and greed for more power and money sent corporations abroad where there was cheaper workers and less safety/employment protection regulation without penalty. So local companies said cheaper production with same return = more profit. WE’LL have some of that That’s Globalisation for you and it wasn’t Obama who brought that to the world it has been the thing to do since the ’80s for those in the money markets.

            It’s not the short and medium life of politics to blame, it’s the underlying principle of allowing the rich to do as they please and basically take over the running of the country. That’s no different to Dark Ages Europe where Lords ruled the land. Now it’s the Lords of Finance who pull the strings because the ‘Market Forces’ and weak right wing politicians thought they could do a better job for everyone.
            Your skepticism would be better aimed at the $s and who has them rather than the politicians who are too easily bought by those same $s.

            The politicians who are “too easily bought” are supposed to be our line of defense against anyone exerting inordinate influence over our government. The fact that they are “too easily bought” makes it a ridiculous notion that we should invest them with more power. They are abusing the power they have now. Giving the government more power will only enable more abusers to operate under cover of the law. If we could rely on our elected officials to be honest and to really consider what would be best for the nation, those wealthy would have no more influence than any other citizen. What you are suggesting is that we put the coyotes in charge of the henhouse to protect it from the foxes.

          • Shiprex

            You don’t get the concept of democracy very well do you?
            If you give them the power and fail to hold them accountable you are more to blame.
            Like your heroic Mesiah of intellect G. Dubya said “that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again”
            Like your argument
            So holding them to account by removing the ability of ‘influencers’ would be a start. Choosing them more carefully and vetting them more thoroughly and openly as well as ensuring there can be not benefit AFTER office.
            I am stating exactly the opposite of what you suggest. Put the people in charge of the Government and MAKE them accountable. FFS you’ve got guns for that very purpose but would rather shoot poor people desperate to feed themselves or shoot pets who’ve strayed onto your property.

            Really tell that to the Norwegians who have the biggest national sovereign wealth fund because they get choose the right people for the right job and instill in them a sense of social justice not self service. That’s just one of many societies that work FOR the people not the self interest groups the US seems to work for.

    Explain why clive bundy pointed guns at federal agents and did not get shot, but this kid gets shot? There is a video of a white man in his pajamas walking around yelling and pointing a gun: Doesnt get shot.

    The evidence is so huge. Keep your head in the sand if you want.

    • Joe Fucile

      Where is the evidence showing Clive Bundy pointed weapons at federal agents?

      According to evidence released so far this kid assaulted a cop and then went back at him when he was told to freeze.

      How about you explain how an unarmed white kid gets killed by a black police officer in Utah and nary a peep from the media, no widespread looting and rioting and no notice from the race baiters.

      • Shiprex

        History books is where you’ll find it.

        • Joe Fucile

          So you have no proof and are going to wait for the lying spin from the Common Core curriculum…got it.

          Can’t really expect a leftist to have a debate with facts, emotions are all they have.

          • Shiprex

            So enforcing the good consumer mentality on people so they’ll stay in the place the 1% want them in rather than educate them about the facts of the world such as perhaps the number of civilians killed as collateral damage on each side in a conflict, or number of football fields turned from rain forest into farmland for cattle to support the meat industry in far off countries, or how much corporations save in tax by moving their headquarters to offshore tax havens as a result of ‘inversion’ policy is redundant as they only need to know how many things they can by from the minimum wage if they are fortunate enough to get that.
            I see facts can get in the way of an education.
            Now get back to being a good little consumer and don’t trouble us while we exploit/run the economy for (y)our benefit.

          • Shiprex

            No aside from teaching/preaching consumerism perhaps teaching thinking would be a better idea. make sure children learn to listen to the sponsors and to fit in to the nice little consumer place while the sponsors get a bigger and bigger slice of everything. American Dream revisited you could call it.
            Typical Right wing squeal of LEFTIST LIBERAL COMMIE SOCIALIST MARXIST rubbish accusation. I’m bored of that it’s a cliche and shows no hint of thought about anyone but yourself.

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patel Dr. Patel

    It is a huge shame that the media is taking this so lightly and making such serious accusations like they’re nothing… then a cop is sitting in his patrol car eating lunch and somebody guns him down out of all this hatred that’s being spread around, especially against police officers. This is extremely bad and dangerous!!

  • Connor Richards

    Wow, this was pathetic even for The Blaze. Jon Stewarts anecdote referred to a black neuroscientist. How many neuroscientists do you know who live in dangerous neighborhoods? Buck’s “argument” that cab drivers are scared of bad neighborhoods is irrelevant and let’s me know that he assumes every black person lives in a dangerous neighborhood.

    If you are so pigeon-brained that you use the logic, “The cap driver is not white. Therefore, there is no institutionalized racism because only whites can be racist,” then I really feel sorry for you.

    And anyone insulting Jon Stewart, just remember that viewers of his show and Colbert’s show are more informed than you. (http://www.politicususa.com/2014/06/02/stephen-colbert-viewers-fox-news-viewers-study.html)

    • ddcannady

      Being “informed” by comedians is no great distinction.

  • Robert Mission

    Very well dissected Buck! A lesson void in the Jon Stewart agenda written comedy skits. Any debate now is purely emotionally driven! Purposely void of any court hearings, judicial sermons and jury results and rulings.If a Black Officer shot a Big White Kid 6 times with exact criminal record and video surveillance proof it wouldn’t make any MSM headline news and the Officer would be praised for doing his duty!

    • spikebu

      White teen shot and killed by police. Unarmed, no record, no wants or warrants. Might have been California. Not in the act of a crime or suspected of one. My husband was talking about it last week. Wasn’t paying attention.

  • stawig

    I wonder how much good could be accomplished if we stopped pointing fingers and worked on the problems. We should all able to agree that not all police officers are racist or looking for opportunities to shoot someone and there are a lot of really good people who are black who distrust the police. So what’s going on here? How do we fix this? I don’t know but facts and empathy would help.
    There may be some good intentions here but I think news outlets keep us at each other’s throats and keep us distracted more than give us news. Is there racism in this country? Yes, some people need to feel superior and it’s pathetic and can be dangerous. But the majority of Americans don’t feel that way. All this discord can be traced back to big government maneuvering and politicians wanting more power over us on both sides. The only reason we haven’t had a Hitler or a Stalin yet is because of the Constitution. I hope we can quit letting party loyalty or the desire to win a debate by making another look small keep us distracted and start saving our country and each other. Wish I knew how.

      Dump the politicians and main stream media. Clean slate. Start over at Constitution square one.

    If this is the best this kid can do….and obviously….it is. Give it up man.Stewart’s not even trying wile Sexton doing nothing but whining?!

    • justMO

      Whining? So stating facts is whining. I always thought that shouting, stating opinion without fact and waiting for applause with a pouty face was whining.

  • D Halverson

    You’re right. They went right with the hyperbolic narrative.
    Where have the facts gone?

  • kbrumskill

    What’s funny is that Sexton didn’t address the other issues about what Jon Stewart stated. Yes, we all need to wait until all the facts come out but one fact is very well known about the racial injustice in that city….which was long before the Michael Brown incident. .

  • katiedidrn

    White is a color too. I venture to say that we have all been ” slighted” or overlooked from time to time. I am white and have been overlooked at counters etc when the person behind the counter is a person of color and a person of color has been afforded Privledge over me. Is that a reason for me to become belligerent or do illegal things—NO! I have been discriminated against because of my white color. Folks grow up and stop manufacturing grievances when there probably is none. We all need to realize that the world doe not revolve around us. We also must realize that because we are of a certain ethnic group that we should be given privledge so based upon the sins of past history. Grow up!

  • Grumpy Ol Fart

    Stewart has never been concerned with the facts. They get in the way of his narrative.
