Jon Stewart Disgusted by Conservatives’ Response to Fraternity Racism


It said a lot to Jon Stewart that the first apology in the wake of the University of Oklahoma’s racist chant video came not from the men who were leading the chant, but from an Oklahoma linebacker who said he regretted cursing in his reaction to the chant.

Many have been talking about Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s offensive video, something that former members say is not an isolated incident.

The discussion about racism is particularly noteworthy since it comes near the 50th anniversary of the Selma marches.

Some – including some in the media – have been looking for something to blame.

Giuliani Now Thinks Obama Is Communist

Former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani now claims that his comments that “Obama doesn’t love America” because he’s not like Reagan or Clinton were not racist.

“Some people thought it was racist — I thought that was a joke, since he was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people,” he told the New York Times.

In fact, he said it was not racist because Obama was brought up by a white family.  He clarified further that the president doesn’t love America because he is a Communist.

“Look, this man was brought up basically in a white family, so whatever he learned or didn’t learn, I attribute this more to the influence of communism and socialism” than to his race, Giuliani told the Daily News.

“I don’t (see) this President as being particularly a product of African-American society or something like that. He isn’t,” the former mayor added.

“Logically, think about his background. . . The ideas that are troubling me and are leading to this come from communists with whom he associated when he was 9 years old” through family connections.

However, CNN’s Bob Acosta claims the former mayor has received both death threats and compliments for his comments.

A House GOP leader has acknowledged that he once addressed a gathering of white supremacists, though his office denies any association with the group’s social views.

Kevin McCarthy, Steve Scalise, Cathy McMorris Rodgers

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the chamber’s third-ranking Republican, served in the Louisiana Legislature when he appeared in 2002 at a convention of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO).

The group was founded by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, and the Southern Poverty Law Center has classified the group as a hate group.

In a written statement, Scalise aide Moira Bagley Smith confirmed that Scalise addressed the group as it gathered at a hotel near the neighborhoods that both Scalise and Duke represented during separate terms as state lawmakers.

Mark Wahlberg Racist Crimes Under the Microscope

Mark Wahlberg’s racist attacks from his teenage years are under the microscope, as he tries to have felony convictions from the 1980’s removed from his record so he can get liquor licenses for his Wahlburgers restaurant chain.

The actor-turned-restaurateur was convicted of assaulting a Vietnamese man in Boston when he was 16, and he is also said to have terrorized black students that were in his neighborhood during the same period of time.

Though he has expressed remorse at his actions, he is being criticized for not making sufficient amends.
