>>MEDIA RPT: nelson mandela as jon stewart's sex toy?
Friends and Comrades,
There's some buzz about Bill O'Reilly's racially ignorant remarks about
Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem.
But the darling of left-liberal media jokesters Jon Stewart had a good time
on his Friday, September 21 show, first at the expense of President Bush, and
then at the expense of Nelson Mandela. Blogs are cheerleading the way Stewart
caught Bush in another dumb statement--that Nelson Mandela is dead.
After a minute's mugging and double-taking of amazement and bepuzzlement,
Stewart pulls a telephone from under his desk and pretends to dial a call. I
half expected to hear the great leader on the phone, confirming his
with-us-ness. The show has made surprise phone connections with celebrities on recent
shows. But no. Some strange quacking sounds come out of the phone. Stewart says

were dead. Wait a minute. How do I know this is Nelson Mandela? What's the mole
on my inner thigh shaped like? It does look like a boot. [Sigh of
satisfaction.] I'll call you back." Delighted laughter from the audience.
The only comments I find on the web are kudos for Stewart's bashing of Bush.
No mention of Stewart animalizing Mandela with sounds that echo the mumbo
jumbo sneer at non-White speech, or of his gender-bending Mandela by calling him
Nelly. No mention of him depicting Mandela as his sex toy.
Stewart has surpassed Bill O'Reilly's dumb remark about Sylvia's. In fact he
has gone beyond Imus; this bit was not a spontaneous slip. The phone under th
e desk, the recorded sounds of a super-inarticulate Mandela, were all
I'm curious that all the bloggers who cite this Stewart slur--you can still
find a video of it on wwwcrooksandliars.com--are so bemused by Stewart's
cleverness about Bush give no thought to his sliming one of the few unblemished
great men of the last century. One website called brownfempower.com, a
self-styled "Woman of Color Blog," only had gushing comments about how John Stewart
It is finally now out in the open that Stewart is another one of those White
hipsters who have channeled Black culture to the point where, out of regret
for their emotional dependency on Black originality, they need to take revenge
through a racism that others conspire with them to overlook.
See for yourself.
