Everything about this is so incorrect that I do not even know where to begin. I’m forced to wonder if Jon Stewart is a well meaning idiot, or a clever man deliberately misinforming the public.
Jon Stewart is intellectually bankrupt. I stopped watching and DVR’ing his show a while bank and now, I don’t even watch the clips people link to.
Dear Jon, let’s break down your ridiculousness one GIF at a time, yeah?
GIF 1: Yes, that’s protected (read: Not GRANTED) by the Constitution.
GIF 2: Wrong. The verbiage is: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” See that? That’s two distinct thoughts in one sentence. And if you don’t want to believe the Constitution, you can just google what the framers spent their entire lives writing about. Or you can read some quotes here: The Framers On Gun Rights
GIF 3: Actually, there are many Americans that own fighter jets, tanks (also, read this one), large-shell canons and other mil-spec weapons. In fact, it’s private manufacturers and private brokers who sell these very guns to the public sector. All of these weapons, jets, tanks, guns, grenades, they all come from private citizens.
GIF 4: Ha! The old musket argument. When the Constitution was written, freedom of press meant literally pressing ink onto paper. With this bankrupt logic, we can conclude that no one has the right to blog, tweet, make youtube videos, talk on the radio or own a dishonest comedic styled political show that covers up it’s misleading bias with jokes and laughter.
GIF 5: Because gun ownership is a fundamental issue. It is part of the foundation of this democracy. It is the one right that defends all the other rights. That’s why this is a big deal. And that’s why this is a big deal to the fascists in government.
Gun ownership is the keystone in the archway to liberty.
GIF 6: I didn’t see this clip or the clip within the clip, so I’ll just answer the man’s question. Yes, I am worried that the federal government is going to come after our guns because that’s exactly what they’ve said they’d do and, in Illinos, tried to do.
GIF 7: Alex Jones is all sorts of crazy, but those are all facts. Everyone of those governments disarmed citizens or specific citizens before unleashing their own government agents to kill their own citizens. FACT.
GIF 8: More dishonesty? Why not. You’ve already made the soup, add a salad to it. 30,000 gun deaths? Stewart doesn’t say ‘a year’, but that’s what he is implying by omission. Which is, in fact, a lie. The FBI figures say there are about ~10,000 gun deaths a year in this country, of which ~7,000 are gang on gang or gang related.
As for the ‘imaginary Hitler’ comment. It’s not so imaginary. Our government is the new Hitler and the Muslims are the new Jews. Don’t believe me, just listen to an anti-semitic Hitler speech and replace every reference to Jews with Muslims or Terrorists.
We are literally on the same hell-bent mission as Hitler. We are trying to ride the world of a group of individuals who we think are a threat to our way of life and our prosperity.
I wish more people would just turn Jon Stewart and his misinformation propaganda machine off. He swears he’s not a news anchor and that he’s a comedian. I say he’s not a comedian, either. He’s a bald-face liar.
