The United States paid homage to fallen service members on Memorial Day.
And it took no time flat for the holiday to get politicized.
Now one comedian said something about Memorial Day that will leave you speechless.
Left-wing comedian Jon Stewart appeared at a Memorial Day rally organized by veterans, a group of which Stewart has been supportive.
But Stewart appeared on stage and delivered a message that had Republicans scratching their heads.
Stewart said, “It’s hard not to be here today and not get frustrated again because as I look out in the crowd, I see the same thing I always see — veterans and their families and caregivers. But where are the American people? This is Memorial Day weekend…And yet we come out here today, looking for the support of the American people, and what do we have behind me? It’s veterans organizations. It’s veterans. It’s their families. This country can’t be this broken…If we can’t do the simple sh*t, we have nothing.”
Stewart seems oblivious to the fact that he and other leftists have been actively tearing down the country and all its symbols.
Stewart recently went on a tirade called “the problem with white people” on his Apple+ television show.
He ranted about how America was systemically racist, then he and his panelists engaged in a struggle session with center-left commentator Andrew Sullivan, berating the guest as racist himself.
And Stewart wonders why the country is divided?
Lead impeachment lawyer Daniel Goldman used Memorial Day to take a cheap shot at Donald Trump and Republicans.
On this Memorial Day, with democracy under attack from Donald Trump and the Trumpettes in Congress and around the country, let us remember those who have given their lives to defend and protect the greatest democracy on Earth. Let their memory guide us towards a better future.

New York Times reporter Mara Gay said in 2021 that on Memorial Day, she witnessed “dozens and dozens of pickup trucks” with “Trump flags, and in some cases just dozens of American flags, which is also disturbing.”
Gay added that the Memorial Day displays were symbols of “whiteness.”
And she isn’t alone in her disdain for American symbols.
Colin Kaepernick rose to international celebrity for starting the anti-American anthem protests that dishonored the American flag.
There were calls from the left to raze Mt. Rushmore because it was deemed a white supremacist monument.
Leftists have been destroying and denouncing American symbols ceaselessly for years, and it’s only gotten worse over the last six years.
If Stewart truly wants to know why Americans cannot come together, he should take a hard look in the mirror first, then look to his comrades on the Left who have been systematically tearing down the country for decades.
Stewart is not wrong that America is divided, but he refuses to understand the cause.
