FNC's Gutfeld Mocks 'Daily Show' Rally: 'This is What Passes for Rebellion in the Media'
(NewsBusters.com) -- by Jeff Poor --
While it seems like so many of Jon Stewart's adoring fans in the media are elated to see a counter-Tea Party, not many have been willing to call this event what it is - an event to belittle people who are exercising their rights as citizens to protest their government.
But Fox News Channel's Greg Gutfeld, the host of "Red Eye" took a stab at it on his Sept. 22 program. Unfortunately, it broadcasts on at 3 a.m. Eastern time (and still manages to beat CNN's prime time lineup in the ratings). In case you missed it, Gutfeld applauded the event as a gimmick, but questioned the sincerity of it as a true meaningful political rally.
"So last week Jon Stewart announced he was going to hold a rally of his own in Washington D.C., to restore reason, sanity or whatever," Gutfeld said. "[N]ow, it's a cute idea - not as good as a gay bar next to a mosque [something Gutfeld had proposed in response to the "Ground Zero Mosque"] - but it's an appropriate, hipster response to the tea parties and Glenn Beck's thing. It's exactly the thing that the bald nerdy guy in glasses from The New York Times subscription commercial might attend and feel totally good about himself afterward - which raises an interesting question: would Stewart have announced his event if those other events had a decidedly liberal tilt?"
According to Gutfeld, had the Tea Party been a left-of-center movement, no. In fact, this was just a means to poke fun at the Tea Party protestors.
"Short answer: no," he continued. "Long answer: noooooooooooooooooooooooo, which makes the jokiness of the stunt wear off fast. Think about it - what Stewart is doing is not speaking truth to power, but poking fun at the people who are speaking truth to power. I mean, Stewart isn't going after politicians or leaders - he's mocking people who are standing up to politicians and leaders."
Gutfeld offered proof that Stewart, while claiming to offer a "million moderate march," is really just another instrument of the left-wing establishment - since there's fear it could jeopardize some of the Democratic candidate's chances in the upcoming midterm election.
"While the Tea Party is a ‘bottom-up' phenomenon, Stewart is on top, looking down," Gutfeld continued. "His is a reaction from the establishment, not against. Here's proof: Yesterday Democrats actually complained that Stewart's rally being too close to the elections will hurt the Democrat's chances. They worry their supporters will be more inclined to hit the rally before the election rather than campaign. Translation: Stewart will harm the establishment left, because he is the establishment left."...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
Jon Stewart is just another Big Media Jew doing the bidding of Big Money Jewish Zionists who own the Democrat Party. His legion of adoring fans planning to attend this "counter extremist" demonstration are liberal airheads and sleazeballs too stupid to know they're being used by Jewish supremacists and warmongers who utilize Big Government to advance their racist, authoritarian agenda and taxpayer-thieving swindles.
Unfortunately, the entire seedy lot of them is what passes for "liberalism" in America today.
