Jon Stewart is warning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he might be facing a lawsuit… over stealing our election strategies.
Just before this week’s parliamentary elections in Israel, Netanyahu warned that his opponents were bringing in Arab voters by the busload in an effort to get his more conservative base to turn out — a strategy that paid off with a big win for the prime minister’s Likud Party.
“How dare you. How dare you gin up racist fears of minority turnout for short-term political gain,” Stewart said on “The Daily Show” on Wednesday night. “That’s our thing. You know what? Now you’ve got a copyright infringement suit on your hands, pal!”
But maybe there’s a lesson in there for American politicians.
“You know that stuff you say in private, your core beliefs, your prejudices that you try to hide from people because you fear society would shun you?” Stewart said. “Well, it appears all you have to do is turn into that skid.”
Following Netanyahu’s example might have changed history in 2012, and Stewart shows how in the clip above.
