Jon Stewart dash Fox News and Sean Hannity for accusing liberals of exhibiting a “sickness” in trying to politicize last week’s terrorist attack in Charleston.
“Yes. It’s a sickness, this rush to use tragedy to advance your narrative,” Stewart said, turning to a shot of Hannity. “Combine that with an inability for self-examination, an almost comical degree of self-exculpatory rhetoric, flag pins, a little bit of leg, and a complete immunity to irony, you’ve got yourself a full-blown case of Foxabetes.”
“You can’t spit your tobacky in Charleston without hitting a public monument to the glorious days of slavery,” he said. “Because in the context of Charleston’s extensive Confederate porn industry, the flag is just the money shot. That town is like Confederate Epcot.”
