Jon Stewart on how Fox hates the US Constitution, unless it’s about guns

Jon Stewart’s take on how Fox News hates the US Constitution, unless it’s about guns. This one is particularly well-done.

“Yes, it turns out there’s only one amendment in our Constitution’s pantheon that is exempt from statistical analysis or emotional freak-out-itude, and it is the Second.  So God help us if the Muslims ever decide to form a well-regulated militia, we’ll have no way to stop them.”

Fox News can’t make up its mind about the US Constitution. Much like the Republicans they routinely shill for, Fox’s hosts always talks about how much they love the Constitution, but then when a problem arises, they hate it and are ready to dump it all.  They particularly hate the Constitution when the word “terrorism” comes up.  God forbid someone presumes innocent before guilty should get a fair trial in America. What would the Framers think?


If the subject moves to guns, however, their hatred of the Constitution immediately dissipates,  and there’s nothing more important than – what? – defending the Constitution.  (Unless you’re talking about guns in the hands of dark-skinned foreign Muslims – there’s a constitutional exception for that one.)

Here’s Jon Stewart’s take:
