Has Jon Stewart revealed true racist colors?

Juan Williams: Hannity Would Have Been Fired For Doing Amos and Andy Voice Like Stewart
June 21, 2011 by Noel Sheppard

As NewsBusters previously reported, Jon Stewart earlier this month did a segment on “The Daily Show” wherein he impersonated Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain using an Amos and Andy voice.

On Tuesday’s “Imus in the Morning,” Fox News’s Juan Williams said that if Sean Hannity had done that, “He’d be out there barking with the dogs after they threw him out” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Readers are reminded that when Wallace brought this up on “Fox News Sunday,” Stewart responded, “Why don’t you show — do you want to show me doing the voices for all the other people that we do? You want to see my New York voice? My Chinese guy voice?”

Actually, the “Chinese guy voice” brings up another double standard, as conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh got into a lot of trouble earlier this year when he did a satirical impersonation of visiting Chinese President Hu Jintao.
