    Why do we not respond stronger to this type of terror?

    Many are disturbed and confused by the racially motivated killings in church in South Carolina, but don't have the stage that Stewart does to express their anger and confusion.

    He used his stage to offer no solutions.

    So what?

    You mean like the thugs that "need room" in Baltimore?

    I listened to John Stewart's monologue.
    Surely he knew something had to be said. So he said something.

    Unfortunately his message was nothing new, nothing you or I couldn't put together in five minutes. ... Nothing inspiring anyone to greater acts of kindness.

    It was like a lecture from dad... Blah, blah blah, mumble.... You should have done better, blah, blah blah...

    Yeah, Jon neglected to mention the DC Sniper, a black man who killed 10 white people because they were white. Self-loathing liberal speech at its finest.

    EDIT: Confirmed 10 victims. Sorry.

    I think this is spot-on.
