On last night’s The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart weighed in on the latest Duck Dynasty controversy regarding anti-gay comments that patriach Phil Robertson made to GQ magazine comparing bestiality with homosexuality, prompting his suspension.
Stewart gave his take on the issue.
“Look, I think what the guy said is ignorant but I also have an inclination to support a world where saying ignorant sh*t on television doesn’t get you kicked off that medium.”
Stewart then took down Fox News for defending Robertson’s comments:
“I guess I stand with the free speech absolutists at Fox News, who don’t believe you should pressure people to have to adhere to cultural norms of speech — mostly.”
Stewart then followed with an epic montage of Fox’s so-called “War On Christmas.”
"Their belief in free speech doesn't extend to the holidays, when the word 'Christmas' is mandatory," he said.
