The Truth about Jon "Stewart"



Jon "Stewart" who was born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz [1], wants people to believe he is some kind of political "moderate" when in reality he has admitted to Fox News executive Roger Ailes in private and on CNN's Larry King Live that he is an outright socialist. [2, 3] None of this should be surprising as he has idolized Socialist Party presidential candidates Eugene Debs and Norman Thomas since childhood. [4]


"I think I would say I'm more of a socialist" - Jon Stewart, 2000 [5]

Stewart admitted to Chris Wallace in an interview that he is ideologically biased and tells half-truths.
"My comedy is informed by an ideological background. There's no question about that. [...] Oh, there's no question that I don't tell the full story." - Jon Stewart, 2011 [6]

His far-left views were fully exposed when he called Harry Truman a war criminal for bombing Hiroshima. [7] While his followers are clearly getting his message when they show up with extremist signs to his so-called "moderate" rally. [8]

Stewart's liberal hypocrisy is demonstrated by his personal fortune, which includes an annual salary of $15 million and an estimated net worth of $80 million. This includes three opulent mansions whose combined value is $12.8 million. Using a trick of the 'one-percenters', Stewart purchased his properties through private trusts (named after his pets) to avoid public scrutiny and diminish his estate tax liability. [9]

And, if only 'Occupy Wall Street' knew [10], Stewart's brother Lawrence Leibowitz is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) Euronext. [11]

His political bias to the Democratic party is shown by his political donations to disgraced Democratic politician Anthony Weiner. [12, 13] All of this explains why studies have shown that Stewart's 'The Daily Show' is #1 with "Super Democrats". [14]
