Jon Stewart Takes on Duck Dynasty & the "Free Speech Absolutists" at Fox

“Look, I think what the guy said is ignorant but I also have an inclination to support a world where saying ignorant shit on television doesn’t get you kicked off that medium,” Jon Stewart said on the Daily Show last night.

“But I guess I stand with the free speech absolutists at Fox News who don’t believe you should pressure people to have to adhere to cultural norms of speech.” 
Cue War on Christmas montage. 
“Their belief in free speech doesn’t extend to the holidays when the word Christmas is mandatory in word, thought, and plant,” Stewart said.
I guess it’s pretty obvious where Sarah Palin took her “free speech” talking cues from on Wednesday.
