Jon Stewart: ‘Medieval Castle Chic’ Not The Right Look For Prepper Commune The Citadel

Views

Jon Stewart on Tuesday explored what separates liberals from conservatives. Ultimately, “conservatives think government is bad and people are good, unless those people work in government, in which case they, too, are bad,” Stewart said. “But the point is this, then they can leave government and join a lobbying firm, at which point they become good again.” It’s very complicated, he said. With Democrats controlling most of the federal government, “freedom lovers have a plan to carve out a haven of liberty, safe from the liberal tyrants,” Stewart said.Enter The Citadel, a planned walled and armed community in Idaho. The project’s website features generic castles complete with turrets to illustrate the plans. “By the way, I’m not sure that medieval castle chic is necessarily the right optics for a return to liberty,” Stewart said.
