… make it this clip from Jon Stewart. This isn’t a Democratic issue or Republican issue—wait, scratch that. It actually is a Republican issue, in that they continue to refuse to vote on this measure.
The shamefulness of it is remarkable. Yes, Republicans can point out 100 shameful things Democrats have done/continue to do. But what compares to this? And what American—of any political affiliation—can watch this and feel proud of the way our so-called leaders are handling this?
The Republicans have used 9.11 as a tool for more than nine years now. They used it to reduce our rights. They used it to go to Iraq and begin and unnecessary war. They used it to scare our citizens, and they used it to justify anti-Muslim bigotry.
Well, I hope that usage is over. The Republicans are shameful here. Just shameful.
