Skip to comments.FNC's Gutfeld Mocks 'Daily Show' Rally: 'This is What Passes for Rebellion in the Media' (Video)
Posted on 09/22/2010 10:17:54 AM PDT by Rufus2007
While it seems like so many of Jon Stewart's adoring fans in the media are elated to see a counter-Tea Party, not many have been willing to call this event what it is - an event to belittle people who are exercising their rights as citizens to protest their government.
But Fox News Channel's Greg Gutfeld, the host of "Red Eye" took a stab at it on his Sept. 22 program. Unfortunately, it broadcasts on at 3 a.m. Eastern time (and still manages to beat CNN's prime time lineup in the ratings). In case you missed it, Gutfeld applauded the event as a gimmick, but questioned the sincerity of it as a true meaningful political rally.
"So last week Jon Stewart announced he was going to hold a rally of his own in Washington D.C., to restore reason, sanity or whatever," Gutfeld said. "[N]ow, it's a cute idea - not as good as a gay bar next to a mosque [something Gutfeld had proposed in response to the "Ground Zero Mosque"] - but it's an appropriate, hipster response to the tea parties and Glenn Beck's thing. It's exactly the thing that the bald nerdy guy in glasses from The New York Times subscription commercial might attend and feel totally good about himself afterward - which raises an interesting question: would Stewart have announced his event if those other events had a decidedly liberal tilt?"

I’m busy ignoring Jon Stewart right now and cannot be reached for comment on something so stupid, mean, or vapid...and not even funny.
I like Redeye. Why is it on at that time? WTH?
I saw that this morning. Funny.
Stewart wants to call his event: “A Million Moderate March”
Don’t you automatically forfeit the mantel of “moderate” if you march? Haven’t you just sided?
Or are they gonna carry signs saying: “Say No to Taxes...Maybe Not”
How about: “Taxes: Maybe Yes, Maybe No”
Or: “Stand With Us...Or Sit...Don’t Put Yourself Out”
“Wishy-Washy And Proud of It!”
“Maybe Tread on Me”
Oh, believe me, most people who are sane can see right through him.
Think about it - what Stewart is doing is not speaking truth to power, but poking fun at the people who are speaking truth to power. I mean, Stewart isn't going after politicians or leaders - he's mocking people who are standing up to politicians and leaders." - Greg Gutfeld
I mean Stewart isnt going after politicians or leaders hes mocking people who are standing up to politicians and leaders.
Exactly. And I love Greg's show. I love it more when Imogen Lloyd-Webber and Juliet Huddy and S.E.Cupp are panelists, but still.
Most of Stewart’s audience will need money and/or permission from mommy and daddy to attend.
I like Red Eye!
Very funny :)
Love Gutfeld’s commentary - wish his show were on earlier!
Hollywood = court jesters. Nothing more, nothing less.
If they are "moderate," maybe they will all just mill about aimlessly.
lol. Great point.
“Onward Christian wussies.”
“Fifty-four forty or fidget.”
“Give me liberty or give me something in my size that makes my hips look smaller.”
“A Million Man Mill-About”
I like it
Since it’s schedule for D.C. they can say
“Half-Way is Io-wa”
I’ve had a couple (3 actually) surgeries this year and spent a lot of late night time on the sofa watching TV. Greg Gutfeld is hilarious and Red Eye is a great show.
It can be the Mill-Mull at the Mall.
How about: “Give me Liberty or not. Either way I don’t care.”
Especially since Andy decided to start lecturing us on illegals and “gay” rights.
Just seeing some of his tweets are telling, he loves mocking conservatives and religious people to all his leftwing “journalist” friends.
Well said, Hollywood = court jesters. Nothing more, nothing less
There is a very long list of jesters which can be found at: http://www.boycottliberalism.com/Dishonorable-mention.htm
With the likes of Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Al Franken, David Letterman
While they attempt to entertain trying to establish pop-culture as credible, are just cheap versions of Johnny Carson even Letterman is a shadow of himself. Stooping to a level of absurd attempting to validate lack of knowledge, illogical thinking, poor education, deconstructed history, Political Corruption, practices of Marxism/Leninism, Leftwing follies, and if it feels good just do it We can guess the left would require or have a need to keep a dumb-down audience to maintain spectators or a following.
I don’t get it - I thought it was ed schultz that started this thingee. How did stewart & colbert get involved in this? And, why is it now stewart’s project? I don’t think they’ll get anywhere near Glenn Beck’s 8/28. Especially, if they have to put out their own money.
They won’t get close to Beck’s rally.
