Community Double Standards

Jon Stewart is not impressed:
“Somebody was saying, ‘There might be an anti-Semite who’s working in the White House,'” he said in the interview that aired Thursday. “And I was like, ‘Have you listened to the Nixon tapes?’ Like, forget about advising the president — the president! Like, ‘Have you read L.B.J.? Do you know our history?'”

And despite his belief that Trump “disqualified himself at numerous points” during the 2016 campaign, Stewart took issue issue with “this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric.”

Like, there are guys in my neighborhood that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities, who are not afraid of Mexicans and not afraid of Muslims and not afraid of blacks — they’re afraid of their insurance premiums. In the liberal community, you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. “Don’t look as Muslims as a monolith. They are … individuals, and it would be ignorance. But everybody who voted for Trump is a monolith, is a racist.” That hypocrisy is also real in our country.
Whatever happened to that ideal, libs?
