The Catholic League, a religious advocacy group, has threatened to launch a boycott against the sponsors of Daily Show host Jon Stewart over a segment that featured “vagina mangers.”
“We are asking Stewart to apologize,” Catholic League president [and angry teakettle] Bill Donohue said in a statement. “If he does not, we will mobilize Protestants, Jews, Mormons and Muslims to join us in a boycott of his sponsors.”
“Moreover, we will not stop with a boycott; there are other things that can be done to register our outrage,” he added. “We are prepared to spend the money it takes to make this a nationwide issue, and we are prepared to stay the course.”
I’ve given up hope that people of all political persuasions will finally realize what stupid jackasses they look like when they do this. Now I’m eager for more boycotts. I encourage them. I want boycotts to provoke counter-boycotts, escalating rapidly, until global capitalism finally collapses as all economic activity grinds to a halt with everyone mortally offended by everyone else and no one willing to spend a goddamned dollar until someone finally apologizes. It’s sort of like Marx reinterpreted by clown college academics.
