Bassem Youssef, Jon stuart and the MB
Bassem Youssef is the Egyptian Jon Stewart. The guy runs a very similar show to the one John stuart runs but his audience are located in the Arab world.
Since late 2012 Egyptians got divided into two parties "The Muslim brotherhood supporters" (ill call them MB) and the anti MB. Bassem youssef started to become really popular at a time where the MB were governing Egypt.
During that time this was the opinion of the anti MB part of Bassem's Show:
The jelly principles
After one year of the MB's rule the party were forced to give up on the goverment and the army took over the country. All those who were anti MB became passionate followers of the army.
Few month later when Bassem appeared and started making fun of the army (as he always used to do) the same exact people who previously said that whomever is against Bassem is against democracy changed their views and went to the streets to protest against the guy asking the goverment to stop him show!
Here is their opinion after he made fun of one of the prominent army leaders:
What's even funnier is that the same exact people who are supporting the army now were the ones who protested against the army in 2011 when it was in control of the country.
Just as you noticed so many people had Jelly values (values that change their shape according to what's happening). (see also Why do people change their opinions)
Why are so many people irrational
So why would someone ,who few month ago, believed in something strongly goes against it completely?
Here are few facts you need to understand about the way the human mind works:
As you just saw many human beings are anything but smart. And the best way to deal with someone who thinks that way is to show him the mirror, or in other words, to send him that article!
As for my personal opinion, i am and i have always been against Bassem's show for making fun of someone on TV is anything but ethical (according to my own point of view)
