We all know that, obviously, the Democratic party is the party of inclusion, welcoming everyone into its fold with open arms, be they man, woman, gay, straight, black, white, Latino, or Joe Biden. This week, the Daily Show‘s news team visited the DNC to get in on this hyper-tolerant lovefest.
There, they learned that anyone can sit at the Dems’ metaphorical lunch table — unless you go to Church or have a pot-belly or shoot guns or are the gross kind of poor or live within a ten-mile radius of a Piggly Wiggly. Because, as one convention-goer so succinctly put it, those “PEOPLE” don’t want to hear “a message of difference and of hope.” Tea Baggers are just, you know. Intolerant. And probably Nazis! And probably even prone to calling people dismissive nicknames by drawing on a deeply homophobic assumption of gay panic!
After all, guns don’t kill people. Personae non gratae kill people.
