Jon Stewart Rips Into GOP Hypocrisy on 99%ers: Claim to Love Country, Hate its People

Hey Republicans, for years you said, "take our country back," said Jon Stewart on his show last night. And now that people are doing that by joining the "occupy" movement, you're saying no, not cool?

He then segued into a classic Daily Show montage o' hypocrisy, with killer soundbites of GOPers saying over and over again how disturbed they are by The 99% movement "pitting Americans against each other" juxtaposed with those same politicians attacking Americans: unions, the poor, gay people, and more.

"On a venn diagram the group of Americans Republicans say it's okay to pit Americans against" overlaps perfectly with those who don't vote Republican, Stewart said. "They love America so much, but hate three-quarters of its people," he said.

 As for how Stewart compares Eric Cantor with a certain type of kid in the playground, watch the video to see (hint: he's not the one being bullied.)
