Will Jon Stewart Desecrate The Koran As He Did the Nativity?

[Editor's Note: Today NewsBusters publisher and Media Research Center founder Brent Bozell publicly dared The Daily Show host Jon Stewart to desecrate either the Koran or the Torah on national television in the same manner he offended millions of American Christians by portraying the Nativity as an accessory for female genitals. Bozell makes the challenge well aware that Stewart’s brand of "comedy" applies only to liberal-approved anti-Christian bigotry.]

Come on, Jon. We dare you to prove you are an equal opportunity bigot. Your grotesque stunt displaying a Nativity scene in a vulgar manner to take a jab at Fox News is but the latest in a long line of unacceptable behavior and hypocrisy when it comes to the media’s treatment of traditional Christianity. Doing something similar with the Koran or the Torah is equally offensive. Since you’re so brave to offend Christians, are you equally brave to offend Muslims and Jews? We dare you.

    The jab was at the schizophrenic holy virgin/whore attitude that a lot of people seem to have toward women. The Koran or Torah have nothing to do with Stewart’s admittedly crudely made point.

    Of course, it would take properly functioning brain to figure that out.

    @Hard Right:

    Will. Never. Happen.

    Why?

    Because, while everyone is equal Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz knows that some are more equal than others.

    Why?

    Because Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz knows that a single fatwā may well terminate the Jon Stewart Show
    … not to mention it may well terminate Jon Stewart.

    @Greg:

    Greg, if ever there were an entire organized ”religion” that institutionalized women as whores unless they were compliant slaves to daddy then hubby, it is Islam.
    Remember Islam means ”submission.”
    Also remember (or learn) that the entirety of a female is considered to be a sex organ by Islam.
    Covering it all is not always enough.
    It cannot go outside unless accompanied by an owner or his surrogate.
    It can be killed by its owner without any violation of the religion.
    There might be governmental consequences, but not always.

    @Ron H.:

    Three differences between Mel Gibson and Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart come to mind:

    1) Unlike Jon Stewart, no one is likely to call Mel Gibson a coward,

    2) Unlike Jon Stewart, Mel Gibson’s work involving religious iconography has been empirically demonstrated to have reduced religious bigotry, and

    3) Unlike Jon Stewart, Mel Gibson just might not be a religious bigot when he is sober.

    That said, if there is a place for Abe Foxman, of the ADL, in the Public Square there is certainly a place there too for Brent Bozell.

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn! It’s a comedy show, if you don’t like it turn the channel. Brent Bozell is a crybaby. Maybe he should watch some old George Carlin videos as I’m sure there are plenty of jokes for him to get angry about. Or perhaps Lenny Bruce. Gimme a break with all this whining.

    If the issue bores you Ron why did you waste time on posting not one response but two?

    Moreover, if the issue truly bore you Ron, why did you twice single out Brent Bozell and post a degrading dismissal of someone challenging Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart’s overt religious bigotry?

    For Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart and other Progressive celebrities it has become standard practice for them to hide behind their role as comedians when they are engaging in Saul Alinsky style attacks upon those with whom they disagree about political and social matters.

    One may plumb anthropological depth in the behavior of Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart and other Progressive celebrities. While the selection of a scapegoat at the extremis is ultimately arbitrary, in everyday life people prefer scapegoats with certain qualities and characteristics. Targets for potential scapegoating who are perceived as being unlikely to retaliate and especially unlikely to retaliate and to escalate are preferentially chosen. This is one of several reasons why the Nazis chose Jews as preferred targets for scapegoating in the early 20th century. The fact that American Christians are unlikely to slit Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart’s throat in retaliation is perhaps the foremost reason they are targeted for hatred and vilification by Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart and other Progressive celebrities.

    Let me say up front that I don’t know Ron H., nor am I sufficiently acquainted with his commentary to have an informed opinion of him. However I can observe that Ron H. did in this instance chose an enabling role. In any effective scapegoating the role of 3rd parties is very important. There is the accuser. There is the accused (the target), the potential scapegoat. And there is the community as a whole. To effectuate an effective scapegoating the accuser must isolate his target and act in such a way that the community shares his accusation of the accused. If the accuser is successful, the community as a whole quickly murders or otherwise expels the scapegoat from the community. If an advocate however steps forward to defend the accused the accusation, the scapegoating may fail. Thus if the scapegoating is to succeed the advocate must be marginalized or perhaps chosen a substitute scapegoat target.

    In the role of advocate Brent Bozell stepped forwarded to defend the accused. Ron H.’s behavior appears to be consistent with marginalization of that defender so that the scapegoating mechanism may proceed toward its deadly conclusion.

    hi,
    yes, it sound to me like the bully in school bus choosing younger kids and slapping the kid who is not even looking at him, that bully feel good to show he is the strongest one in the bus, and the driver is not being aware of it by the other kids which outnumber the bully, it take only one of them to yell to the bus driver, or get up and run in the front to tell, but the kids have learn to be coward like the bully, by association,
    which mean they agreed with the bully, they should be taught to be of courage is always brigning admiration from the other, as oppose to the stupid bully bring only hate,

    TAKEN OUT OF WHERE THEY USE TO DO SOME GOOD DEED IN MANY PLACES,
    CROWDED BY THOSE WHO REPRESENT THE PROPAGANDA OF THE WHITE HOUSE,
    AND TO MAKE FUN OF THEM NOW IS VERY SARCASTIC, AND A PUBLIC PERSON LIKE JOHN STEWART SHOULD NOT NEED US TO REMIND HIM OF WHAT IS GOING ON IN MANY PART OF THE COUNTRY,
    THE COMMUNIST DON’T WANT THE CHRISTIANS AROUND THEM, THEY SEE THEM AS A THREAT,
    TO THEIR AGENDA,SAME AS THE OBAMA SAID THE CONSTITUTION IS IN HIS WAY, AS WELL AS THE FLAG, DON’T YOU GUYS SEE THAT, OR DO YOU FIND THE RISE OF COMMUNIST A JOKE?

    Ron,
    Do you have any examples of Jon Stewart skewering Islam?

    And don’t lead with this NON-skewer of Islam:

    “The nation of Dubai banned the movie Charlie’s Angles because it’s “offensive to the religion of Islam.” Apparently, the religion of Islam is offended by anything without a plot.”

    Or the one where he created a Muslim Cosby Show.
    Both of them are NOT skewerings of Islam so much as skewer attempts at anyone who might be the slightest bit critical of Islam.

    Hey Ronny:

    Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart is a committed Left-wing political activist. He makes his living in the entertainment business. No surprise there. With Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart and other Progressive celebrities it has become standard practice for them to hide behind their role as comedians when they are engaging in Saul Alinsky style attacks upon those with whom they disagree about political and social matters. They do significant damage to decent Americans and then they hide behind their role of comedians. This has become a tried and true way for them to escape responsibility for the hate and bigotry they promote; and many of Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart’s fans enjoy vilifying and mocking Christianity and they are all too eager and ready to enable the bigotry by barking on cue something like, “IT’S COMEDY…..get over it”. I have watched Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart. He is actually funny. He is also much smarter many of his contemporaries. Nonetheless Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart is a committed Left-wing political activist.

    so spare me your phony righteous indignation.

    Why the personal attack Ron?

    I read your above post and I must say you take yourself way to seriously. IT’S COMEDY…..get over it!

    I’ve observed that our New Atheists don’t like being called out for their bigotry. I hope you turn out to be a better man than that Ron.

    Jon Stewart is a comedian first. He was doing stand up long before he was a POLITICAL SATIRIST! There is no “hiding” behind that label. It’s funny because Jon Stewart has been doing his this type of satire on the daily show since 1999 and in that time I have seen him poke fun at Democrats, Republicans, Christians, Jews, Muslims, gays, the royal family, race relations etc. To somehow suggest that now he’s a bigot using “Alinsky” tactics (and by the way come up with a different talking point than “Alinky style tactis ” as that has become trite) is so ridiculous on it’s face that you sound loony. Again I can show you clips of George Carlin making fun of religion and God, Chris Rock poking fun at white people, Louis CK making fun of women and gays, Greg Giraldo (who is white) making fun of blacks, Dennis Leary making fun of vegetarians and much much more. Where do you draw the line Mikey? I suppose all of the above comedians are bigots or maybe you just don’t have a sense of humor. Either way at the end of the day it is just comedy so quite taking it all so seriously geesh.

    And to answer your question, “Barack the Magic Negro” is a song by American political satirist Paul Shanklin. I’ve heard the song in it’s entirety and I find it offensive. {Ron H.]

    “One of Shanklin’s most controversial works was his 2007 parody “Barack the Magic Negro”, in which he impersonates Al Sharpton lamenting that white voters will perceive Barack Obama as a “magic negro” and therefore favor Obama for president over him. This was based on a column titled “Obama The Magic Negro” by black columnist David Ehrenstein in the LA Times.” per Wikipedia

    It seems that Paul Shanklin was a citizen first before he was a comedian …

    The primary object of Paul Shanklin’s satire was the racialist credulity of Progressive Whites. In substance Paul Shanklin’s song was intended to have an anti-racialist affect. Paul Shanklin focused on the personage of a repulsive corrupt racial bigot whose demagoguery will have claimed lives of at least 9 Jewish, Hispanic, immigrant and White victims if Sharpton latest victim, Mr. Owens dies. Al Sharpton is not a suitable subject of social and political satire? One wonders why? Is it because Al Sharpton is BlacK? Is it because Al Sharpton has proven himself so valuable to the Progressive cause?

    Yes, you see while all men are equal, some are more equal than others.

    Yeah Umm Mikey is there a particular reason you keep posting Jon Stewart’s name as “Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart” with a line drawn through it? Do you have a problem with Jews or their names? Just asking. And enough with the “Alinsky” bullshit I have never read his books much less heard of him until the right wingers brought him up. You sound like one of those conspiracy theorists who thinks 9/11 was an inside job. Brent Bozwell’s outrage is so selective it isn’t even funny. He only goes after people on the left and gives a free pass to anyone on the right that spews hatred. His hypocricy is stunning. I love how guys like you compare jokes to bigotry…wow what a sad little world you live in.

    Just asking? No, you’re making a thinly veiled reciprocal charge in an attempt to impugn me as a religious bigot so as to deflect my criticism of Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz Stewart’s cowardly bigotry. I’d guess because you are displeased with the way I belled the cat.

    To the man and to the woman the Jews in my family don’t hide their Jewish identity behind a WASP stage name, and some have had notable entertainment industry careers. It seems odd that Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz would feel the need to do so in this day and age. It seems to me that particular ‘oddness’ in this day and age is due some healthy attention.

    “The song’s lyrics (for Barack the Magic Negro) sung in a voice impersonating of a repulsive corrupt racial bigot of black activist and former presidential candidate Al Sharpton explicitly refer to Ehrensteins’ article:

    “Yeah, the guy from the L.A. paper
    Said he makes guilty whites feel good
    They’ll vote for him, and not for me
    ‘Cause he’s not from the hood.

    In the song, Sharpton’s impersonated voice is made to sound as if coming from a bullhorn, a satirical nod to his well-known participation in street protests.”

    R-A-C-I-S-T! Yeah if you stare at those words long enough they look like the KKK, or Elvis or something.
