Video: The Daily Show Tortures a Camel in Madison
Weekly Standard ^ | 02/23/2011 | JOHN MCCORMACK

Posted on 02/23/2011 10:06:49 AM PST by OldDeckHand

No joke: The Daily Show brought a camel to the protests in Madison the other day, presumably to help make fun of the Cairo/Madison comparisons. As this video shows, the gag didn't turn out so well:

Who knew that an animal indigenous to the Middle East couldn't walk on snow and ice in the Midwest? Local firefighters eventually rescued the camel. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Daily Show didn't use any footage of the camel in its Tuesday night broadcast.

Update: If I'm not mistaken, it appears that Daily Show correspondent John Oliver walks in front of the camera at one point and urges the man shooting the video to turn it off. Censorship!

Watching the video, it seems pretty fortunate that the camel didn't break his leg, considering how it's trapped in that fence.

It is a shame Michael Vick was not there to murder a few dogs. The Obama/NFL sure loves him now. These people are so evil. Poor camel.

Do we know that the camel’s leg is not broken. You can hear them at the end of the video saying “I think it’s broken”.

Torture? That’s a stretch. Negligence bordering on mistreatment maybe but not “torture”.

They should have had a Bactrian Camel. They handle the snow and cold very well.

Just the same, a stupid stunt.

I like camel a lot more than Arabs or Muslims.

What morons! It reminds me of that WKRP in Cincinnati show where the news guy threw turkey out of helicopter, unaware that they couldn’t fly. It was funny on TV; not so funny when it involves real animals.

I did not hear that, but the audio out of my mobile device isn't that clear. No, I don't know for a certainty that the camel didn't break his leg. I just presumed that because it wasn't mentioned in the "update". The leg could be broke, I just don't know.

I hope that someone sends this video clip to Drudge and to Rush Limbaugh, to highlight the abuse of animals by the liberals POS socialists. If conservatives ever did anything like this, there would be lawsuits & criminal charges being filed immediately by the libturds, howling with feigned outrage over the mistreatment & abuse of animals.

Daily Show correspondent John Oliver

Correspondent? He's an actor in a comedy show.

There’s 3 parts to the video.

In part 3 they finally got the camel up and his leg was fine.

Now they just got to give something to the ‘cameraman’ for his achne!

Before I moved from Wisconsin in 1981, I was in the Zor Shrine Camel Patrol. I was privileged to train and care for the camels in the Patrol that used to be housed at the Vilas Park Zoo. I understand that the liberals forced them out subsequently.

Camels are interesting animals and very affectionate to those who treat them well and unforgiving to those who do not. They also can spit like you wouldn't believe!

I would love to see this camel spit on a J. Daily, spread-eagled against a wall!

What idiots. It’s a no-brainer that camels would not like being in the snow and ice. Obviously the “Daily Show” has too much money for their childish pranks. I hope the poor camel is okay. Is an unnecessary stress and trauma for the animal.

Arthur Carlson (WKRP)thought turkeys could fly.
John Stewart (Daily Show)thought camels-from a hot arid desert-could walk around on ice and snow.

These progressives are not too bright

This ought to make the idiots on the Daily Show really squirm, which means the MSM will do everything they can to bury the story.

Wild turkeys can fly. Domesticated, farm-raised turkeys cannot.

You fail to differentiate between domesticated turkeys and wild turkeys.

http://www.norcrossws.org/html/wild_turkey.htm

“Flying: Turkeys are fantastic fliers for short distances. They can take-off like helicopters, going allmost (sic) straight up. And when they fly straight ahead, they go fast. A wild turkey was clocked at 55 miles per hour.”
