Via mediaite, Jon Stewart says republicans only love the second amendment, all the other amendments are suggestions. It's a pretty funny clip, but it is entirely disingenuous. Why? Because if that is the standard and metric we use to determine who loves which amendments, then please, tell me which ones the democrats love.
Free speech? Don't make me laugh.
You know they don't like guns, so obviously they don't love that one. Aside from a case in Nevada, the third amendment hasn't come under fire enough to see where they stand, so let's skip the third.
The right to be free from unwarranted searches? Right. Couldn't fit that clip in, could ya, Johnny?
States rights? Only when it comes to marijuana, and even then only because it's a means to an end.
Yes, the republicans are atrocious at defending our rights. The only right they seem willing to defend is the right to defend ourselves. All I'm saying is, at least they're protecting that. The democrats sold civil liberties down the river. The only rights they're willing to defend is the right of the government to make you their slaves.
Even on the issues that democrats used to win on, like privacy or peace, have been completely abandoned for their messiah. The most vocal peace proponent out there right now is Rand Paul. Psst! Hey, Jon! Rand is a republican.
Of course if Jon Stewart were to rip democrats as much as he rips republicans, his audience would start to dwindle. I know plenty of right leaning folks who watch the daily show, because we have the ability to understand humor and we can take a joke. The left can't. And if you don't believe that, I know a rodeo clown who'd like to have a word with you.
