Special Victims Unit

July 29th, 2011

Stewart, as usual, has unlimited fertile soil when conservatives cry about how victimized they are by the left (note: 15-second ad plays at head of video):

Special fun is where they make the claims that Christians are so victimized, they are the last group anyone can discriminate against.


Because there are so many Muslims and Atheists in Congress. Or serving as governors. Or historically as president. The truth is, if you’re not Christian, your chances of getting elected to any state or national office is slim to none. Being a Christian is a pre-requisite in almost any political office, despite that being unconstitutional.

Seriously, a few department stores run ads using the word “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” and suddenly, Christians are the most victimized group ever. Someone brings a lawsuit to point out how Christianity is unconstitutionally pervading in yet another corner of government, and Christianity is somehow the victim of relentless persecution (despite the fact that these lawsuits usually fail).

It’s like the Florida woman who, in 2005, when Republicans dominated the White House, both houses of Congress, and the national media, complained that she was “under-represented” because the quotes printed on her coffee cups disagreed with her more often than not. It’s like Republicans at the same time whining that they only got 98% of judicial nominees passed, when that far exceeded what any modern administration ever hoped for. It’s like Richie Rich complaining that his allowance of $990,000 dollars a week is a slap in the face because it used to be an even million. If they’re not allowed everything they want–not 99%, that’s not enough, it has to be the whole thing–then they cannot help but cry in agony like spoiled children over how abused, oppressed, and underprivileged they are.

I feel so sorry for their pain and grief. It must be intolerable.
