Did John Stewart go to far? / Zasel John Stewart tentokrat moc daleko?

john stewart image /arunnerslife.wordpress.comAll right, I like John Stewart, I think he is funny. But one of the latest reports did not do well with the Slovaks and I kind of feel for them. I feel for them because I still feel like one of them and even if I didn’t, I would still feel empathetic to their negative reaction. Watch the skit and let me know what you think. Should we just lighten up or did he go to far?

CZ: Slovensko se bouri nad nekdejsim skitem z The Daily Show s Johnem Stewartem, ktery si tentokrat udelal srandu prave z neho. Co myslite? Zasmat se tomu anebo se bourit?

    Try to watch it again. You obviously misunderstood. He says he always feels BAD for ANY country which happens to end up in place just above USA because invariably it’s used as “a standard for just how far have we fallen as a people”. And then he proceeds to mock how the other media would present such an unfortunate country.
    He doesn’t make fun of Slovakia. I could’ve been ANY other country.
    So yes. Lighten up people. Btw, only people (and nations) with low self-esteem cannot take a joke.

    Well, I don’t think he’s really making fun of Slovakia. He’s making fun of the US media acting like it’s SO BAD that we’re behind Slovakia. It’s a problem of overreaction in news stories. I don’t get the feeling that he’s trying to be negative about that country. Just like Stan said, it could have been any country.

    I see what you are saying here but it sounds like one has to try (and listen!) really hard to get it in this unoffensive way.

    I am Slovak and I didn’t like it not because of the comments made about Slovakia, but because I live in the US and even US doesn’t deserve such comments… I think what he tried to portray did not come off as it was intended. I didn’t find it funny at all and I really like his humor. One thing I agree with though is how media portray our small tiny country: they don’t know much about us if anything. We surely don’t have a cow for president (I think he is more like a monkey), and we do not export farts either (I’m not sure what we export actually). This is what Stewart compared US to as to obviously state that the media doesn’t always do great job in researching the country they’re comparing US to 🙂

    See Ania is Slovak and she did not like it, although she normally likes his humor. I think we should judge by her.

    I feel like Jon is actually making fun of Americans! He is stating how they are usually ignorant of smaller countries and don´t know much about the world. Jon put on a different “voice” when he was making fun of Slovakia…Kinda talking in a hillbilly accent..haha

  • Tanja January 5, 2014, 9:20 pm

    Yes, now I remember! He did change his voice a bit! Well, it still feels to me like you have to take a magnifying glass to watch the video to find all the little pro-Slovakia things in order not to take it personally.

    Now let’s not be the overly sensitive people who have no humor–he was being funny and even drawing attention to it suggests you don’t get humor. He was saying (and he starts with this) that he feels for any country that is just above the US on any measure as the media will then attack them, and then he proceeded to show what such an attack might look like.
