Jon Stewart Responds To Being Banned In The UK: ‘Are You Not Allowed To Praise England In England?’

Jon Stewart got a bit of a surprise last week, as his coverage of the News of the World
scandal got his show banned in England. No, not because he went too far
attacking anyone– in fact his entire segment was about how “England is awesome“– but because he used Parliamentary footage in satire: a crime in the UK. Going through a list of things that arent banned in the UK, he couldn’t help but ask: “who is the arbiter of what gets to go on the air in your country?”
Playing the old clip of himself shouting about how awesome England
was during the scandal, he asked, “who is that young go-getter that
seems to be 5-8 time zones behind everyone else?” He noted that the clip
was aired throughout the world, in such beacons of freedom as “Chad,
Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Yemen.” But England banned the clip.
“We were praising it!” Stewart shouted. “Are you not allowed to praise
England in England? Is it part of some sort of 1683 Edict of False
Modesty?”
Instead, he noted the actual reason for the ban: Parliamentary
footage could not be used in any satirical programming. Parliament could
be insulted as much as possible on a real news show, but praise on a
satirical show was illegal, he lamented. Meanwhile, the rest of British
programming included “gay orgies, live autopsies,” and a sausage
commercial that made Stewart remark “yes, I am thinking about being
raped by my breakfast.”

      There is very little restriction of the internet in the UK, but the news of the US government trying to take it over and censor ALL websites and Google and Yahoo's censorship in dictatorships is beyond belief.

      The US has far more censorship issues to sort out than the UK will ever have.

    • @thinkslaughter You do have an argument; your thesis (although I use that term lightly) is that the UK sucks. You continually post anti-British rhetoric and knock it at every opportunity. If your postings (along with your idiot cousin cocksquad) were just random, mutually exclusive posts, then you wouldn't get so much negative feedback. But, you have shown time upon time that you're a dick, and a dick you will stay.

    when politicians can write LAWS that ban or penalize CRITICISM of them, you are all officially fucked.

  • Michael Savage is a radio talk show host. he doesn't insight or advocate civil disobedience and doesn't advocate physical violence against any one. Why for goodness sakes would the British government deny Michael Savage the right to speak or come into the UK? On the other hand Islamic religious leaders openly advocate for the destruction of British law, and government. Bizarre, and the UK people permit this to occur.

    • @Less1leg We see it differently:
      "This is someone who has fallen into the category of fomenting hatred, of such extreme views and expressing them in such a way that it is actually likely to cause inter-community tension or even violence if that person were allowed into the country."

      Yea, because he believes in individual rights and is not a fan of Muslim extremists, shit like that don't fly in the UK I guess.

      totally agree with you. Spineless twit wanker Cargelock doesn't have the gonads to tell a Mullah to shut the f#ck up, but will deny a decent guy like a Michael Savage that he is dangerous to public civility if he comes to the UK. Really jerkoff? His "extreme"view will incite hatred? Ah pal, your Muslims are insulting your whole fucking country and you are standing there with your nickers around your ankles living in fear of offending the Muslim people spitting on you.

  • Our media does the same thing, only more subtly. They are completely under the corporate thumb. At least in the UK they had to ban it. In the US, the media just doesn't show it in the first place. Still, I hope that some of you limeys got to see that bit, it was hilarious!

    • @sgtloverlips Choudary is a UK citizen, he was born here and is therefore subject to UK law (as has been shown many times). We have to deal with that talirag twat as and when needed; he's our bitch, it's not as if he can go anywhere as he's banned from just about everywhere for being a stinking hypocrite, ganja smoking, drunk fuck up of a talirag.

      Most US and UK LiveLeakers from get on very well. Despite occasionally harsh words, a good natured and healthy rivalry exists between our excellent nations.

      The banter is good. And the thinkers and jokers and flamers and morons should all be encouraged to participate. Everyone has their own level and should go at their own pace. You've got nothing to be ashamed of just because you sometimes find yourself struggling to keep up.
