Jon Stewart and Rush Limbaugh couldn’t be more polar opposite politically and that was never more evident on Monday’s episode of “The Daily Show” when Stewart attacked the conservative talk radio host for criticizing Michelle Obama’s “hashtag activism.” How did Stewart propose viewers could join in his disdain for Limbaugh? With another hashtag, "#F*@KYouRush."
On Monday, Limbaugh called Michelle Obama’s photo with the hashtag “#Bringbackourgirls” “pathetic” and dismissed the use of social media as having any real effect on international politics. This offended Stewart who went on to wonder who could support Limbaugh in his viewpoints, dismissing the talk show host as, “Oh yeah, that f***in guy,” and called him a “quivering rage heap” with no humanity but only the remains of a “superfund cleanup site that was his soul." Continues after video.
Stewart, of course, is a liberal partisan who keeps up a smug pretense of neutrality, despite plenty of documentation to the contrary.
Dozens of liberals on Twitter have actively responded to Stewart’s proposal, with the hashtag “#f*@kyourush” being tweeted every few minutes early Wednesday afternoon. Tweeters ripped into Limbaugh, calling for his show to be banned and for him to be fired. Some people even issued death threats.
Liberal tolerance is alive and well.
