    ISIS is trying to ignite a religious war. They WANT us to call them Islamists. Calling them Islamists gives them propaganda; they can say that we're in a war against Islam. That's the point of their barbarity. Terrorism isn't about traditional military goals. It's not about holding territory, it's about hearts and minds. Why would you want us to give them what they want?
    How about the fact that we all know the problem here is Islamic terrorism? They wont be appeased, this just emboldens them. And last week the Sec of State actually said we can't win this war by killing them.

    How do you think people that literally live and die by the sword take that?

    The difference is Stewart is a major source of "news" to the left. I used to think it was just the young, but the average age of Daily Show listeners is in their 40's.

    And the lefty sheep sprint towards it as fast as they can. And we wonder why they appear as robots.

    Maybe the left should start using SNL for their news now that Stewart is going to retire and spend more time with his family. SNL could use the ratings.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's what I said dude, he's not just a comedian. And with his lies, omissions and bias, Hannity is a source of news to another group of Americans. Can you see the danger here. Or do partisan glasses discriminate?
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Hannity is a political commentator, he's not Jon Stewart. He can have opinions, as long as they aren't presented as unbiased and objective "news".

    But they aren't equivalent, Stewart is a SATIRIST, Hannity is NOT.
