Jon Stewart & Sean Hannity declare war on each other over Cliven Bundy (3 delicious videos)

Oh my. Jon Stewart and Sean Hannity broke into open war this week over Hannity’s open embrace of racist seditionist Cliven Bundy.  Hannity ripped into Stewart repeatedly, and Stewart, god bless him, utterly destroyed Hannity in return.

There are 3 videos.  Watch them all. You will not be disappointed.

Stewart starts off with various Hannity segments praising Bundy (for more info, Becca did a huge post explaining all the background on the Cliven Bundy controversy).

At one point, Hannity talks about how people like Bundy, who are squatting on federal lands without paying the necessary grazing fees, are helping to make beef prices lower for American consumers.  Stewart responds: “Yes, most goods are cheaper when you steal the raw materials necessary to make them. Have you seen the prices at ‘Fell Off the Truck Mart’?”

Stewart then goes on to show Hannity’s obsession with Democrats who “pick and choose” what laws the obey, from President Obama on down. Yet, Hannity is fine with Bundy refusing to obey the law and repeated court orders.

Then Stewart shows Hannity ripping into Occupy Wall Street, with Hannity yelling “What right do you have to take over a park?”

Then, Stewart shows Hannity criticizing Stewart for having Cat Stevens at his big rally a few years back. Stevens (who changed his name and converted to Islam decades ago) apparently supported the fatwa against Salman Rushdie.

Stewart admitted that Hannity was right about Stevens being a bit too far out there, but then Stewart turned the “guilt by musical association” around on Hannity and showed Hannity praising NRA board member Ted Nugent, who is about as hateful as they get.

Stewart then went on to note all the flags that Hannity has on his set, and how Hannity even wears a flag lapel pin, yet he’s embracing Cliven Bundy, a man who doesn’t even believe the United States exists: “He doesn’t recognize America’s existence – he’s a US-atheist.”

It’s really a thing of beauty. All three videos are below.

    Jon Stewart is a national treasure. Hannity is merely a pimple on a gnats ass. The Fox demographic is its own worst enemy.

  • thinkingstraight

    Jon Stewart knows funny and satire! Wow! If Hannity could learn to laugh at himself, he might have a fighting chance of matching the champ but as it stands now, its Ali vs Liston…and its not Hannity “floating like a butterfly”.

  • AnthonyLook

    America declares the three rounds go to the winner- Stewart and Hannity is declared the loser (and enabler of racists far and wide).

  • AnthonyLook

    Just like Terry Lynn Land swears there’s no War on Women, or Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio champion against Immigration Reform. Now tell me that McConnell isn’t racist because he married an Asian women why don’t you.

    Oh, it seems the unintended consequences of our governments feel good programs in disrupting the black family and the perpetuation of poverty is hurtful to your minds… but here’s an African American author who says it more eloquently than anyone.

    Fox News is not capable of being neutral so they hire ppl that are in the same train of thought. Hannity should have continued to stay quiet regarding Bundy along with the whole network but “NO” he had to attempt to match wits with Jon Stewart. NO CONTEST!!

    Looks like Faux News is in trouble.

    “‘Because whatever exists should continue,’ the guest replied, pointing to the 1935 establishment of Social Security as proof of his assertion. ‘Do you drive a 1935 car?’ Will then asked.
    “‘No, I drive a Tesla.’ Colbert said, drawing laughter from the studio audience at the mention of the expensive electronic vehicle.
    “‘I’m sure you do,’ Will responded. ‘Do you watch a 1935 television set?’
    “‘No, in 1935, a television set, I think, was a potato field,’ the host stated lamely.

    Colbert has a QUICK and formidable intellect. I wonder how many got the Philo Farnsworth invented tv reference?

  • RepubAnon

    In order to make money, Mr. Bundy needs to sell cattle and buy more. All the feds need to do is seize the cattle when Mr. Bundy tries to sell them, and seize Mr. Bundy’s funds when he tries to buy them (plus seize any cattle trucks heading for his ranch.

    This was the best Jon Steward slap down ever. I normally really like Jon, now I think I would like to have his babies. He made me proud to be a liberal, pinko, hippie.

  • Jade

    When will Fox learn to just ignore Stewart and Colbert? They’ll never get the upper hand, ever.

    Did anyone else see Colbert politely and meticulously make a fool of George Will the other night? It was a glorious sight to behold.

  • The_Fixer

    Hannity needs to come to one quick realization – you’ll never win when going up against Jon Stewart.

    Not just because Stewart is good at what he does and has a razor-sharp wit. It’s because Hannity hung himself with his own words long ago.

  • cole3244

    my opinion of conservatives is beneath contempt and not repeatable in mixed company.

  • Elijah Shalis

    I don’t feel the need to watch them. I have read enough about them. I say seize bundy’s bank accounts and tear gas the whole ranch and go in with zip ties and handcuff them all.
