Here’s video and text of Jon Stewart’s high-speed smackdown of Fox News

In case Jon Stewart’s disparagement of Fox News on the “Daily Show” the other night was too fast for you to understand (see video below), here’s what he said:

“And I get that Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama on all things democratic, to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust, and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence.”

  1. And I get that for the last 50 years lefties oppose all war, unless it is war prosecuted by Barack Obama, who was a Nobel Peace prize winner after all, because the modus operandi of the left is to protest everything, particularly if it has anything to do with the U.S. military, a publicly traded corporation or anyone who dare speak of evil profit.

  2. Uh-oh! I’m worried about expdoc. Someone seems to have commandeered his Applesauce comment account.

    Sure, doc’s always spewing right-wing nonsense. But the comment above is exceedingly stupid. It sounds like something some disciple of Glenn Beck would write. He wants us to believe that all lefties oppose all wars and want nothing to do with the U.S. military and hate all corporations and all profits.

    That’s pure craziness. That’s like me saying that all righties — including doc — are fire-breathing racists, raging misogynists, dim-witted creationists and latter-day McCarthyists. Sure, some of them are, but not all of them. I would never paint with such a broad brush.

    doc,

    A little bit of knowledge, and a slap of reality, would have told you that a large percentage of the people who served in Vietnam, for example, were poor white, black, and Latino kids who got drafted and whom you would have categorized as “lefties”. Meanwhile, the righties, like George W. Bush, Limbaugh, Cheney, Buchannan, O’Reilley, Keyes, etc., dodged the draft through various means. And if you think only the righties are enlisting today, you are truly delusional and need help.

    I know a bunch of lefties who are COMBAT veterans. BTW, the last U.S. Senator to win the Medal of Honor was Sen. Inouye, a Democrat.

  4. Pat would never paint with such a broad brush, except that is nearly the entire point of his “snarky” blog. Highlight extremists as often as possible to splash paint on as many as possible.

    If you want to see a great John Stewart clip watch this.

  5. Or this equally great clip from Letterman on the same topic. But be warned, he praises a favorite target of the snarky left.
