The Daily Show: World Of Class Warfare

Jon Stewart was spot on this Thursday with this segment on Fox News and their reaction to Warren Buffett saying that the rich need to be taxed at a higher rate and their collective freakout calling it "class warfare" and Warren Buffett a "socialist." As Stewart notes here in response, "You really have no f**king clue what socialism is, do you?" I beg to differ. I think they just hope their clueless audience doesn't.

And Jon wrapped the segment up with lots of clips from Fox showing just who they think aren't paying their fair share of taxes. And as anyone who, as I unfortunately do on occasion, watches that network already knows, that group is of course, the poor. The staff at The Daily Show did a really nice job putting this mash up together that depicts very well what the viewers there are exposed to hour after hour, day after day on the Republican propaganda channel.

You can watch part two below the fold.

The government could raise $700 billion by either taking half of everything earned by the bottom 50 percent or by raising the marginal tax rate on the top two percent.
