The Florida Family Association believes that "All-American Muslim" is educationally harmful to America's belief structure. (5:14)

>> Jon: WELCOME TO "THE DAILY

SHOW."

MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

WE'VE GOT A GOOD ONE FOR YOU

TONIGHT.

OUR GUEST TONIGHT... I THINK

YOU'RE GOING TO ENJOY THE

CONVERSATION.

I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO ENJOY

THE CONVERSATION.

LAWRENCE LESSIG LAW LEVIATHAN.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

TONIGHT WE BEGIN WITH A... LIKE

MOST AMERICANS, TELEVISION, I

ENJOY IT.

WHETHER IT'S MAD MEN, "BOARD

WALK EMPIRE" OR OUR COMEDY

CENTRAL BREAKOUT HIT "HEY, FART

IN THIS."

(LAUGHTER)

LOVE THOSE GUYS!

IN ADDITION TO BEING ENTERTAINED

THERE ARE FUN EDUCATIONAL

PROGRAMS ON THE TELLLY... FOR

THE U.K.

(LAUGHTER)

THERE'S AN ENTIRE CHANNEL

DEVOTED TO LEARNING CALLED THE

LEARNING CHANNEL.

(LAUGHTER)

IT TEACHES ONE WHAT IT MIGHT BE

LIKE TO HAVE EIGHT CHILDREN.

(LAUGHTER)

OR 17 CHILDREN.

(LAUGHTER)

OR 19 CHILDREN.

OR JUST ONE HEAVILY MADE UP

CHILDREN.

>> MY NAME'S LORI, MY SON

BRAXTON AND MY DAUGHTER ALASKA

ARE PAGEANT ROYALTY.

>> YOU'RE NOT A STRIPPER BUT

SHAKE YOUR BUTT A LITTLE BIT.

>> NOW WHY WOULD YOU EVEN SAY

THAT?

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: BECAUSE, BECAUSE,

HONEY, SHE'S A TERRIBLE MOTHER.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT SOMETIMES THE LEARNING

CHANNEL SPLITS UP AND CREATES

PROGRAMMING THAT NOT ONLY IS

EDUCATIONAL BUT IS DOWN RIGHT

OFFENSIVE.

>> A REALITY SHOW ABOUT AMERICAN

MUSLIMS IS SPARKING CONTROVERSY.

AND EVEN CALLS FOR A BOYCOTT

TODAY.

>> Jon: WHAT ARE THEY

THINKING?

WHO GIVES A JIHADI TERRORIST A

SHOW-- I SAY, ASSUMING THAT THAT

MUST BE IT.

BECAUSE THERE'S A CONTROVERSY.

THIS ALL-AMERICAN MUSLIM SHOW

MUST BE ABOUT JIHADI PROPAGANDA.

>> ARE YOU SCARED?

>> SCARED ABOUT DELIVERING?

I'M SCARED ABOUT BEING A MOM.

>> I GOT A LOT OF MY MIND WORRY

ABOUT THE WHOLE PREGNANCY.

SHE'S OBVIOUSLY GOING THROUGH

ALL THE PHYSICAL, THE MENTAL, I

FEEL LIKE I'M GOING THROUGH A

LOT OF IT.

(LAUGHTER)

SERIOUSLY?

THAT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN

INTERESTING TO HEAR EVEN IF THAT

GUY WAS BUILDING A BOMB AS HE

WAS TALKING!

(LAUGHTER)

THAT IS THE MOST BORING REALITY

SHOW IMAGINABLE.

IT SEEMS TO JUST SHOW MUSLIMS

LIVING THEIR LIVES.

LIKE THE REST OF US (BLEEP)ING

IDIOTS.

(LAUGHTER)

SO WHY DID THE GROUP THAT

COMPLAINED, THE FLORIDA FAMILY

ASSOCIATION ORFFA, WHY DID THEY

HAVE A PROBLEM?

>> WHAT SCENES IN THE SHOW TO

QUOTE YOU ADVANCE ISLAMIC

FUNDAMENTALISM.

WHAT SCENES DO YOU HAVE A

SPECIFIC ISSUE WITH?

>> IT'S THE ABSENCE OF THE

RADICAL SIDE OF THE IMAMS

PROPOSITION OF SHARIA LAW THAT

IS MOST CONCERNING.

IT'S THE ABSENCE OF THE

APPLICATION OF ISLAM I CAN

COATS.

>> Jon: THE PROBLEM WITH THE

SHOW IS THE ABSENCE OF

RADICALISM?

THE PROBLEM IS THE TELEVISING OF

MUSLIMS WITHOUT THE TERRORIST

ELEMENT?

(LAUGHTER)

YOU'RE ANGRY ABOUT THAT.

LIKE WHEN "TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL"

WAS FORCED TO INTRODUCE THE

ABORTION CLINIC BOMBER

CHARACTER.

(LAUGHTER)

ALTHOUGHLY SAY THIS, I THOUGHT

IT WAS JERRY VAN DYKE'S DARKEST

MOST INTRIGUING ROLE.

(LAUGHTER)

WHY WOULD YOU BE UPSET TO LEARN

THAT THERE ARE NON-JIHADI

MUSLIMS?

>> THIS PROGRAM CREATES AN IMAGE

THAT'S HARMFUL EDUCATION WISE TO

THE BELIEF STRUCTURE AND

MEMORIES OF MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS WHO WILL LOOK AT THIS

AND SAY "WELL, ALL MUSLIMS ARE

LIKE THAT" WHEN IT'S NOT

ACCURATE.

>> Jon: THIS SHOW IS HARMFUL

EDUCATION WISE TO YOUR BELIEF

STRUCTURE.

(LAUGHTER)

IS THAT NOT THE PURPOSE OF

EDUCATION?

VIS-A-VIS BELIEF STRUCTURES?

(LAUGHTER)

TO REPLACE YOUR BELIEF STRUCTURE

WITH FACTS?

(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

I DON'T LIKE THE... I DON'T LIKE

THE SHOW "NOVA" BECAUSE IT IS

HARMFUL TO MY BELIEF STRUCTURE

THAT THE OCEAN TIDES ARE

CONTROLLED BY MONSTERS.

(LAUGHTER)

THE BALLS ON THIS GUY.

THIS SHOW CHALLENGES THE

STEREOTYPE I HAVE ABOUT MUSLIMS.

SO I GUESS I COULD NO LONGER

ACCEPT THAT STIR OWE TYPE OR, IF

IT PLEASE IT IS COURT, YOU COULD

JUST REPLACE THESE MUSLIMS WITH

ONES THAT MORE APTLY FIT MY

NARROW VIEW.

I'M ALSO TROUBLED WHY NO ONE ON

YOUR SHOW "LITTLE PEOPLE BIG

WORLD" WHISTLES WHILE THEY WORK.

OR MAKES CANDY FOR WILLY WONKA.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

SINCERELY, YOUR FRIENDS AT
