Jon Stewart Is Back to Weigh In 

You know, we’re in a bizarre time of quarantine. White people lasted six weeks and then stormed a state building with rifles, shouting: ‘‘Give me liberty! This is causing economic distress! I’m not going to wear a mask, because that’s tyranny!’’ That’s six weeks versus 400 years of quarantining a race of people. The policing is an issue, but it’s the least of it. We use the police as surrogates to quarantine these racial and economic inequalities so that we don’t have to deal with them.

No one cuts through the subterfuge and the bullshit like Jon Stewart.

Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear

October 30, 2010 ~ Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) makes a rare public appearance, performing “Peace Train” at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, which is organized and hosted by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Midway through the song, Colbert interrupts him and introduces OzzBo, who starts performing “Crazy Train.” It’s strange, weird and beautiful.
