CLEVELAND, Aug. 6, 2015 – On the day 17 Republican presidential candidates participate in a pair of debates, Jon Stewart is quietly fading away.
Jon Stewart is leaving the airwaves, leaving America’s nastiest supporters of gutter politics to look for another vicious snake to spread political poison under the fake guise of comedy.
America’s failed human beings will need another demagogue to tell them that they matter…
America’s secular zealots will need to leech onto another bigot who believes that people of faith loving their neighbors are the bad guys…
America’s moral relativists will need a different circus clown to explain why Islamists are less evil than Republicans…
America’s self-loathing Jews will be despondent until the next anti-Israel, pro-Islamist apologist attacks Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu while making excuses for Palestinian suicide bombers…
America’s pathetic basket cases are now left without a leader to help them dedicate their lives to abusing America’s normal human beings…
Maybe one of the reasons Jon Stewart refused to criticize suicide bombers is because he was one, at least in the verbal sense. For 16 years he got rich and famous by hurling insults at people he disliked. His program was less a monologue than a leftist temper tantrum.
He claimed to speak truth to power, but there are those that called him a liar and a boor angry at his own powerlessness. When not cursing out conservatives for existing and breathing air, he was selectively editing footage for maximum harassment of his targets. He hated them and they refused to hate him, so he hated them more.
Jon Stewart had no interest in stopping the politics of personal destruction because he is the politics of personal destruction. His survival depended on finding people to hate and siccing his sycophants on his enemies like crazed dobermans.
Stewart’s downfall came when Barack Obama became president. Stewart’s soulmate was given a chance to govern. Rather than bring people together, leftists ran wild. Lunatic fringes from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter showed that all the left had was hatred of the right.
“They” were against everything, for nothing and good at nothing.
With nobody left to blame, Stewart ran out of gas. Normal America saw that the domestic terrorists lighting America’s cities on fire were not Republicans.Stewart ran out of terrible people to influence. He ran out of hateful things to say. He ran out of good people to tear down.
Perhaps his departure will begin a new era when political opponents are treated with human dignity rather than enemy combatants who must be eviscerated and obliterated.
It may take time, but the television world is now a better place.
Republicans will debate serious issues that matter while the elitist liberal snob who never mattered sees life improve without him.
Jon Stewart is gone from our television sets. May he never return. Good riddance to a bad person.
