You need to check your white privilege. Jon Stewart not so much

Cenac, Steward and what appears to be a racially insensitive puppet

Cenac, Stewart and what appears to be a racially insensitive puppet

In 2011 Wyatt Cenac, the Daily Show‘s only black writer (what, you didn’t think Stewart comes up with all his material himself? He’s not Rush Limbaugh, you know) told Stewart that he was uncomfortable with his Herman Cain impression.

“[Stewart] got incredibly defensive. I remember he was like, What are you trying to say? There’s a tone in your voice. I was like, ‘There’s no tone. It bothered me. It sounded like Kingfish.’ And then he got upset. And he stood up and he was just like, ‘Fuck off. I’m done with you.’ And he just started screaming that to me. And he screamed it a few times. ‘Fuck off! I’m done with you.’ And he stormed out. And I didn’t know if I had been fired.”

Incidentally I am shocked, shocked to learn that Stewart is a jackass who screams obscenities at subordinates. Speaking of racially insensitive puppets:

  • Very typical

    • Often leftists are hiding some sort of bigotry.

      • I don’t know that I’d necessarily characterize it as bigotry. I mean, everyone is completely mental with this stuff now. But Stewart, I have no doubt, would be all over this if a conservative had done something similar.

        • I’m not talking about imaginary bigotry but latent bigotry that leftists possess. Any time a person of a particular persuasion does not conform to their standards, leftists immediately go on the attack. I think that is what happened here. Where they see discrimination, everyone sees normal life.

            I would disagree with “hiding”; denial would be more accurate.


          • Maybe more accurate.

    Jon Stewart has always been an unfunny dick.

    It’s not bigotry it’s thin skinned paranoid narcissism. No one has said ‘no’ to him in so long he sees himself as the unelected progressive moral conscience of the world.
