Jon Stewart: You know who was a war criminal? Harry Truman

Read these comments before watching the video - these comments show how absurd Jon Stewart's logic (if you can call it that) is. There is obviously nothing you can say to reason with Jon Stewart and his clones.
We must frog march all surviving WW II vets and everyone who voted for FDR/Truman, and send them to Spain for trial.
Only then can our nation reclaim the moral high ground.

Might as well add FDR to the mix…he built those weapons. Then, better add Wilson to the mix, as well. Set the stage for WWII, and turned the Presidency from head of the Executive Branch to the power center of national policy is is today. Maybe JFK, too…that whole Vietnam thingie? And LBJ…he prolonged that Vietnam, even after it was apparent that we were just tossing more and more Americans into the meat grinder. Couldn’t decide to win it, or just pass it along to the next guy. And, Clinton…Rwanda was a stellar day in our history, among other things that happened on his watch.
OK…what do these men have in common?
President — check.
Democrat — ditto.
The more important point here being, however, Stewart is out for giggles and ratings…and he’ll bend the truth to extremes to get a laugh and higher ratings.
This is how many Americans get their news. The Daily Show started out telling the audience it was a fake news program…satire. It has evolved since into a perceived real news show…and has the Emmy’s and Peabody’s to prove it.
News as entertainment, entertainment as news…and people wonder how we could have elected a total novice to the highest office in the Nation?

Via Goldfarb, the key exchange comes at around 5:50. Hundreds of thousands of lives saved by averting a U.S. invasion of the Japanese home islands, and all this tool can do is point a finger and mumble “yes” in response to whether Truman’s a war criminal or not. Behold the face of mindless anti-torture absolutism. Like what you see?
