Oh, good, it's time for another round of Which Minorities Have It Worse! When it comes to the media, the Jews historically lose this game — a fact that has not escaped the attention of marginalized CNN anchor Rick Sanchez. In an interview on Sirius Radio yesterday, Sanchez, who is Cuban-American, decried the major media networks (run by Jews), "elite, Northeast establishment liberals" (de facto Jews), and Jon Stewart (America's favorite Jew). Do you think Sanchez doesn't know what those people think of him when they see him hosting his nationally televised show, Rick's List, for two hours every weekday on CNN? "Deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier." But which Jew best epitomizes this sneering disdain?
"I think Jon Stewart's a bigot. I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I'm so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine."
Sanchez later said he didn't mean to call that silver-spoon-fed son of New Jersey a "bigot," and downgraded Stewart to "prejudicial" and "uninformed." But not before he told the host of Stand Up! with Pete Dominick how he really felt.
Very powerless people... [snickers] He's such a minority, I mean, you know [sarcastically]... Please, what are you kidding? ... I'm telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they -- the people in this country who are Jewish -- are an oppressed minority? Yeah. [sarcastically]
