Dear Bernie, you don't have to make excuses for Jon Stewart. Most white liberals support gun control because they think African Americans cannot be trusted with guns, and also support welfare because they think lots of African Americans are too dumb to work. Jon could not have made fun of a race unless he really thought they are inferior. Most accusations of conservative racism are not only false but they come from someone who is attributing their racist feelings to others. I sincerely believe that Juan Williams was fired because his liberal bosses disliked African Americans and Muslims. For decades liberals referred to all Muslims as "Fundamentalists." FDR himself kept the Army, including the Air Corps, segregated. On the other side, Black Liberation Theology and the Nation of Islam are the most committed liberal Democrats and are also the most racist and the most antisemitic. The real story is that Herman Cain is very popular among conservatives regardless of race, and if he does not win primaries it will be because white liberal journalists unfairly gave him bad press.
