Sometimes you hear a news story and you think to yourself, “Oh man, I can’t wait to see what Jon Stewart is gonna do with that!”
And by sometimes, we mean ALL THE TIME!
Jon got after the Florida Family Association for calling for a boycott of the TLC show, “All-American Muslim.”
And why does the FFA want the show off the air? What in the world could have caused this outrage?
Because it doesn’t show any Islamic radicalism! Yes, the FFA is afraid that the show will change what people think of Muslims in the United States, which...is kinda the point of the show?!?!
On the real, "All-American Muslim" looks downright boring. In the clip Stewart showed, a husband talked about his wife’s upcoming pregnancy, putting our favorite newscaster into a deep, fake slumber.
“Seriously, that wouldn’t have been interesting to hear, even if that guy was building a bomb while talking,” Stewart said. “This show just seems to show Muslims living their lives like the rest of us f****** idiots.”
For much more, including a “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” joke and Stewart explaining how educational television is supposed to work, check out the video below!
J-Connection: Jon Stewart is Jewish. And a comedian. What a surprising combination! Born Jonathan Stewart Leibowitz, he circumcised his name to become the eponymous host of satirical news program “The Daily Show.”
