• Jon Stewart: Race Card Dems Are Now The ‘Boy Who Cried Wolf’

    Comedy Central’s liberal host Jon Stewart called out Democrats who play the race card against Republicans for just about everything.

    More specifically, though, Democrats want Loretta Lynch to be confirmed for attorney general and Republicans want to pass a bill that outlaws taxpayer dollars for abortions. The GOP won’t budge on the Lynch confirmation until they get what they want first.

    Republican intrenchment led Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin to compare Lynch’s having to wait to be confirmed to her being a victim of Jim Crow laws and having to sit at the “back of the bus.”

    “You know, my guess is there is not a Senate procedural motion you could subject a person to that would rise to the level of Jim Crow segregation,” Stewart said Tuesday.

    Jon Stewart said Republicans aren’t holding up Lynch’s nomination because their a bunch of racists.

    “Republicans are treating Lynch with the same low-level of respect they consistently reserve for all of Obama appointees,” Stewart said. “By playing the race card when it’s not justified, Democrats risk big ignored when the race card is justified, which it is a lot. You don’t want to be the boy who cried wolf on racism, because even when the wolf is real, most people are not giving a shit.”
