Charleston South Carolina Shooting

Jon Stewart points out the utter hypocrisy our response to Islamic terrorism compared to our own ongoing racial terrorism:

Some people have suggested that Jon Stewart run for political office. Maybe even president. And I don’t mean like Stephen Colbert ran for president. This video is evidence that Stewart could easily make the transition from comedian to serious political candidate. We could do far worse (and we have).

    Why not? Al Franken shows it can be done, at least in Congress.

    These continuing and tragic racial incidents, whether from our (ostensibly impartial) police authorities or (admittedly often half-baked) civilian population, expose the ugly and unspoken residue of prejudice that still deeply pervades our nation especially, it seems, in certain rural and inner urban communities.

    Ironically, the election of our first (and doubly ironically, just half) black President has seemed to only highlight how far we have yet to go in our ongoing struggle to attain the status of being fully civilized.

    It worked fine IK, Its just a very saddening story. When events like this and Sandy Hook take place the aggressive sheep dog in me comes out and I think of really terrible things I’d like to exact upon the animals responsible. Final scene in Braveheart comes to mind. It takes a while to let it pass.
