Jon Stewart says welfare rancher Cliven Bundy desecrates American flag


Political satirist Jon Stewart devoted the opening segment of “The Daily Show” last night to a scorching attack on renegade Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters.

Bundy has been grazing his cattle on federal lands for decades while refusing to pay the fees other ranchers pay. Courts repeatedly have ruled against him, and the Nevada State Constitution recognizes the federal government’s authority in this case. But Bundy steadfastly has defied the law, while a gang of armed militia types have rallied to his defense.

Stewart made special note last night of photos showing Bundy waving the American flag  after having declared that “I don’t recognize the United States government as even existing.”

Said Stewart: “Did you see that thing you’re holding there, fella? If you reject the American federal government, at least have the decency to create your own damn flag.”

Stewart also mocked Fox News demagogue Sean Hannity for the hypocrisy of his support for Bundy after having insisted in other cases that court rulings in matters of law must be obeyed.
