Even Jon Stewart is shocked by the people at the DNC

The Democratic party truly is the big tent party! That is unless you
are: white male, own a gun, religious, a Tea Party member, believe in
small government, pro-choice, high school educated, believe in
Creationism, anti-union, live outside of New York, live outside of
California. You know, maybe they aren't really as big of a tent as
they pretend to be. In fact, their hypocritical intolerance of anyone
who disagrees with their beliefs was so bad that even Jon Stewart and
the team at The Daily Show had to mock it!

VOICE: Basically we're Latinos, Hispanics, we're blacks, we're the
LGBT community, we're women, we're par.
JONES: Everyone's welcome.
VOICE: Everyone's welcome.
VOICE: Except unless you own a corporation or if you're a hunter, a
gun owner, white males.
And then there was this one:
VOICE: They're a bunch of gun toting hillbilly Tea Partiers. That's
all I have to say. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.
And this one:
VOICE: Pot bellied.
VOICE: Church going.
VOICE: Small minded.
VOICE: Anti science.
VOICE: A bunch of Yosemite Sam hillbillies.
VOICE: Whack job evangelicals, gun nuts.
VOICE: They don't want to hear a message of difference and of hope.
"What kills me is they don't see any of it. They just don't see any
of it. They don't see how they're being wildly bigoted. 'We're
inclusive, except for those people over there.' Oh, my gosh. We
don't we certainly don't want any of those gun people," Glenn said.
"Here's how open minded I am. I have friends who are atheists, I
have friends who are Democrats, I have friends who are darn near
communists, socialists, and I think they're good people. I will tell
them that I think they're wrong. And we have an open and honest
debate. But what we have in common is more important. They're
decent people. They don't hate freedom. They don't hate
America. And they're also willing to have an honest conversation
with me and if I make a good point, they'll say, "Wait a minute, wait
a minute, holy crap, that makes sense." And they'll come back to me
two, three months later and say, "I've really been thinking about
that." And I've done the same with them. My Communist friend George
Lange who's not actually a Communist but I like to call him that
because he's always like, 'I'm not a Communist.' 'Yeah, you are, George.'"
"He has changed my course. He really has. He's probably, next to God,
next in line of being responsible for Restoring Love. Because he
opened my mind on language. He said to me on the mall, he said,
'Glenn, I haven't heard you talk about love.' I said, 'George, you
communists are all alike. This whole thing is about love.' And he
said, 'Language matters, Glenn. Half of the country never heard you
say the word love. And we've had a two year conversation about this.'
And he taught me how his side sees things, and I've taught him how
our side sees things and that really we're the ones that are seeing
it the same way. And when he said to me at Restoring Love, "Glenn, my
side talks about utopia, but your guy you guys are actually building
it. You're doing it. This is it! This is what my side always says we
should be like and you're doing it!" Victory. Victory. That's how
that's where you are open minded. You say to your principles. But
you're open minded enough to be able to bring other people in and
have a real true exchange of ideas with respect. You win," he said.
