Video: Jon Stewart Takes on 'All-American Muslim' Boycott


The Comedy Central host blasts FFA for complaining that the TLC show does not depict the images of violent fundamentalist Muslims, and slams Lowe's for pulling their ads because of the boycott.

Jon Stewart tried to make sense "All-American Muslim" boycott from the Florida Family Association, but ended up finding no reason to complain about the show. Expecting the TLC program to be about "jihadi propaganda", he dubbed it "the most boring reality show alive" featuring "Muslims living their lives like the rest of us f***ing idiots" when addressing the controversy on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart".

Stewart then played footage which features the Executive Director of FFA explaining the reason they boycott "All-American Muslim". After learning that the group opposes the show because it does not depict the images of violent fundamentalist Muslims, the Comedy Central host concluded, "This show is harmful education-wise to your belief structure."

The 49-year-old media critic then rhetorically asked, "Is that not the purpose of education vis-a-vis relief structures, to replace your belief structures with facts?" He went on comparing FFA's complaint with his dislike to a show which is harmful to his belief structure that "the ocean tides are controlled by monsters."

When Stewart invited "senior Muslim correspondent" Aasif Mandvi to report on Lowe's pulling its ads from "All-American Muslim", Mandvi offered a different thought on how they should react to the issue. Assuming "all Muslims are terrorists", he said that the home improvement chain should be closed because it provides the items needed to make a bomb. "Without the store Lowe's, the jihadist goal is unachievable," he argued.
