Video: Stewart responds to O'Reilly

Bill O'Reilly is just swishing down his own personal toilet bowl of lies and hypocrisy. Really, I know there are so many other things to focus on but he makes it so easy.

To bolster his annual war on Christmas promo, he recently employed a year-old video clip from The Daily Show which became painfully obvious as the correspondent who made the offhand comment was quite unpregnant when she made it. After coming out on stage looking very pregnant recently she left remarking: "Oh! Oh, my goodness! My water just broke."

Stewart couldn't resist being his rabble-rousing self, declaring:


"If Bill O'Reilly needs to have an enemy, needs to feel persecuted, you know what? Here's my Kwanzaa gift to him. Are you ready? All right. I'm your enemy. Make me your enemy. I, Jon Stewart, hate Christmas, Christians, Jews, morality, and I will not rest until every year families gather to spend December 25th together at Osama's homo-abortion-pot-and-commie-jizzporium."
Watch the video [HERE], it's as hysterical as usual...

But... I have a question for O'Reilly who is so interested in religion. There's an actual story of religious persecution going on, complete with a side dish of church-state tension.

In Michigan, a Roman Catholic man, convicted of drug possession was sent to a Pentecostal treatment center. "Joseph Hanas says the staff told him his religion was 'witchcraft' and took away his rosary beads, and he told the judge he wanted out - a decision he says landed him in jail."

I'd love to see O'Reilly, a Roman Catholic, weigh in on this actual case of discrimination. What are the odds... (ToiletPaper / MediaMatters)
