In a segment laced with “F-bombs”, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart blasts Fox News and other conservative media for their declaration of the “war on Christmas”.
Dubbing the segment “The War on Christmas: Friendly Fire Edition”, Stewart announced, “For years now Christmas has been under attack, defended only by the brave souls of Fox News.”
Stewart played a clip of “Fox & Friends” co-host Gretchen rhetorically asking if she and others are “crazy” for discussing the issue of a “made-up war on Christmas”.
“As a general rule if you’re trying to tell whether you and one other person are nuts, ask a third person. Preferably someone outside the asylum,” Stewart proclaimed. ”Yes, you’re f***ing nuts.”
Stewart says that Christmas is everywhere and that secularism is not a threat to the holiday.
“For whatever annoying local ticky-tack Christmas abolishing story you and your merry band of persecution-seeking researchers can scour the wires to turn up, the rest of us can’t swing a dead elf without knocking over an inflatable snowglobe or a giant blinking candy cane,” Stewart contended.
