Stewart says, “Looks like a tyrant is anyone sworn to protect the constitution that you didn’t vote for.”
Conservatives across the nation are in an uproar over President Obabma’s proposed gun-control plan, with many going so far as to call him a tyrant. Others have taken to comparing him to dictators throughout history, including Hitler. Statements suggesting if the Jews had guns the Holocaust may not have happened are popping up all over the place. But as Jon Stewart points out so eloquently in this clip from last night’s Daily Show,
I wish armed Jews in the ghetto could stop Hitler. But my feeling was, France couldn’t, and I’m pretty sure they had guns. Russia had kind of a lot of guns, but they couldn’t stop Hitler—until you factored in the wind chill.
Calling the elected leadership in the US “tyrannical dictators” would have more effect; it would seem if people would first learn what the actual definition of that term is.
