  1. Sounds like an opinion from a nobody.

  2. John Stupert is a Moron who loves himself more than anyone in the world.Please go away forever, John. I bet Haiti would love to have yoou as their newest citizen.

  3. John Stewart jaxing off to Jen Sauky is a pretty weird ritual too. Especially when he lights up the road flares and scoops up a handful of axel grease.

  4. The problem is our ancestors built too good of a country. These people have had it way too easy for too long

  5. Jon Stewart just has a different opinion. If you really BELIEVE in your anthem, then you should respect that. Simple.

  6. I disagree with you guys on this one. I also think it's a tired ritual. Just because you sing the anthem, it doesn't mean you necessarily love your country. And if you think it's as silly song, that doesn't mean you hate your country either.

  7. It is weird. It's also weird that the military paid the nfl to do it. I could do without it, tho tbh, I really don't care. I can see both sides of the argument.

  8. I think it represents that we’re all one under the flag and standing together for it is unifying. Doing it at home in front of your TV is a just an idiotic comment from a tired former comedian.

  9. What's the point of criticizing people for being proud to be an American?

  10. Jon Stewart has gone absolutely crazy the last few years !! He went Trump crazy !!

  11. I find it weird that people stand when its played in a stadium/field but not at home/sports bar etc. I know several people, including myself, who stand whenever they hear the anthem being played, regardless of location. but maybe that's just the military brat in me 🇺🇸

  12. If you don’t stand and get goosebumps during the National anthem, then you are not an American!!!! 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸❤️

  13. He is definitely not wrong on this one.. quit simping fools.

  14. I think chawnunkkahhhjah, is a weird ritual. So what? I’m an American and I have an opinion. I won’t take that from any American and no one can take that from me.

  15. What do you expect from people that hate the U.S.?

  16. The game itself is "a weird ritual".

  17. Maybe if he knew the history of the words in the national anthem then maybe he would be a lot more respectful.

  18. Hmmm, I don't know Jon Stewart maybe it is just out of Respect for those that fought, died and that serve to maybe help you have the Freedom to think and say what you want maybe? Just throwing that out there to help you Jon.

  19. He wouldn’t say that if we were playing a “world anthem”. Stewart is a filthy rich Democrat globalist, so no surprise there.

  20. js is searching for another 15…

  21. We stand for the Natl Anthem at home too, hands over our hearts. It doesnt seem right to be 'eating a bag of chips' when that song comes on.

  22. The big assumption that everyone misses, you don't have to stand for the anthem.
    It's about participating in the anthem. Not who's not standing.

  23. Love of country, and alliegance to the fallen escapes John Stewart. He misses a lot. So does the one on the right.

  24. The fact is Stewart and all these woke liberals have a deep hatred for this country.

  25. AMERICA WAKE UP! STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS !AGAINST MANDATES! American’s must unite against ALL corrupt politicians and those in power, regardless of party affiliation. AMERICANS are fed up with DICTATORSHIP!! No-one should be allowed to force another person to have a medical procedure. No-one!!! There is nothing more dangerous than allowing politicians to take care of public health, If anyone is trying to silence another, for any reason, THAT PERSON HAS SOMETHING TO HIDE & are GUILTY! STAND UP! DRAG THEM TO JUSTICE!! I want to see government officials held accountable. Now, not later. Let's go Brandon 👍F…JB!! AGREE?

  26. Angry comedians always suck

  27. I served for over 20 years in the Military in Asia Europe, Desert Shield/Storm and numerous other deployments. Seeing that flag and hearing the Anthem always made me Proud to be an American and thankful for the Privilege of serving my Country

  28. He is from that subversive desert tribe.

  29. Weird rituals ,coming from a Jewish man that is funny.

  30. Some Americans don’t get humour he’s made a observation. Bet the 5 don’t stand in front of their tv singing the anthem Fox News with jump on anything if person on the left is saying it

  31. Stewart is a sad disturbed little man.

  32. Tell Jon Stewart.he can stand in line for some woke Kool aid.
