Last night, Stephen Colbert mocked Fox News for having to dig down deep in the well to try and fearmonger their audience some more about scary Muslims by bringing up the latest on the so-called Ground Zero mosque.
What is a pundit with no juicy stories to get angry about supposed to do? Well luckily, the folks over at Fox News are always prepared to smash the glass, and pull out the emergency Muslims.Video below the fold.
STEVE DOOCY (12/10/2012): The Ground Zero mosque was supposed to be a cultural center, remember?Oh, it's a Mosque-rade, all right. And I'm in no Mah-mood for it. I've jihad it up to here! The media haaj to Mecca big deal out of this. Hummus.
GRETCHEN CARLSON (12/10/2012): Turns out, it's now an empty space with no community programs. Dozens of worshipers gather at the site for prayer services.
FOX NEWS WOMAN (12/10/2012): It's all pray and no play.
ALYSON CAMEROTA (12/9/2012): It's all pray and no play.
BRIAN KILMEADE (12/10/2012): It turns out we may have been lied to.
HEATHER CHILDERS (12/10/2012): You could call this a Mosque-rade.
Oh, oh, folks, it feels good to be angry about this again. Wait, why was I angry about it originally? Was it the loud music, the shwarma fumes, what?WOMAN ON FOX NEWS (8/12/2010): Building the Islamic mosque at Ground Zero is like pouring salt on the wound of the 9/11 victims.Yes! It's a finger in the eye of America! And America never had time to deploy our Three Stooges defense.
PAMELA GELLER (8/12/2010): It is an insult, it is deeply offensive.
GRETA VAN SUSTEREN (11/23/2010): It was poking a stick in the eye.
MIKE HUCKABEE (11/25/2010): ... a finger in the eye of the people of New York ...
TUCKER CARLSON (11/25/2010): ... a finger in the eye of America ...
Folks, two years ago we were told this building would be a community center, but the only community program they have is a class in capoeira, "an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines dance and music". Fighting with dance and music? Have we learned nothing from West Side Story?
This is great! This is great! There is so many 2-year-old stories for me to be mad about! Remember that Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajökull? Why can't I pronounce you? And what about that 2-year-old Indonesian kid who smoked? Where are his parents? I mean, now he's 4, so it's cool, but back then, makes me sick! Oh, and do not get me started on LeBron James' hour-long signing special! Pretty cocky move for a guy who's never even won a championship, is what I would've said before he did.
Folks, 2010 makes me so angry! I just wanna, I just wanna....
Gaaaaaaah!!! We'll be right back.
