Conservative talk radio host Mark Levin bashed Jon Stewart’s “putrid” “disinformation” against Israel and “his clapping seal studio audience” on Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. “The fact of the matter is if Hamas had the weaponry that Israel had…Israel would cease to exist. And if Israel wanted to take out whole communities in Gaza or the whole Gaza Strip, they could do so in about 30 minutes…a country that agrees to a cease-fire, that was negotiated by Egypt and the Arab League and still has to tolerate these attacks” Levin said.
He particularly attacked Stewart’s status as an edgy comedian and social critic, declaring “he’s held up as this really smart guy, he’s held up as a brilliant comedian. He’s not a smart guy, he’s got ten writers, he’s a clown.” And “it really doesn’t take a lot of courage to criticize Israel and trash Israel…so you’re not really a tough guy, you’re not really cutting edge.” “Read up, Ivy League boy, try to figure out what’s going on before you cut your stupid jokes,” Levin concluded.
