Jon Stewart Literally Garrotes Republicans Who’ll Assist Any Nation But Ours (Video)

Jon Stewart Literally Garrotes Republicans Who'll Assist Any Nation But Ours (Video)Jon Stewart called out Republicans’ schizoid thinking on priorities Thursday, skewering their relentless eagerness to fund military adventures anywhere in the world while refusing to “waste” any funds on the American people. When it comes to pouring money into a war, Stewart says, you never hear Republicans worrying about creating dependency: “Basically, when we give other countries government assistance, they handle it great. But when we get it ourselves, we fuck it all up.” But it’s OK, because military spending keeps us safe. Except maybe from crumbling infrastructure, unequal schools, inadequate healthcare, global warming, and of course a whole lot of shootings every day. But those aren’t terrorism, now are they?

This is one of those end-of-the-week segments that The Daily Show does so lovingly: a chance to explore the video library and pull out some especially juicy clips. Finally, Stewart sums up,

You know what? I’m worried. I’m really worried about the Republicans. Their inability to wean themselves off of military intervention. They have a culture of defendency, if you will. And I believe it’s turned them all into warfare queens. And I think we need to cut them off for their own good.

          Some people just won’t even try to challenge their ideas. Fuck ’em indeed. I, for one, feel like “warfare queen” was a brilliant turn of phrase to coin. I hope it catches on

        I sure hope so! That is my grammar pet peeve, along with “irregardless.” I can’t help but hear a valley girl in my head, saying “OMG, I literally just died or something,” every time I see it. Lol
