Stephen Colbert is a good example of why late-night comedies are terrible. It's far from the welcoming and actually humorous environment that was the norm with hosts like Jay Leno and Johnny Carson. The current scene is full of leftists who are delivering monologues to get applause instead of laughter.
Jokes have been obsolete and are being replaced by a boring ridicule of political opponents that always point in the same direction.
To his credit, Colbert has been in a gunfight alongside Jimmy Kimmel to see who is the most popular on late-night TV, and at the moment Jimmy Kimmel, the “Late Show” host, has taken the crown. In a monologue that blasted Republican governor campaigner Tudor Dixon last Wednesday, Colbert declared her a fraud because she claimed to have met an individual who had found pornographic materials in his son's library at school.
Fox News has the report.
Last Wednesday, Colbert pummeled Dixon for sounding the alarm during the Oct. 25 gubernatorial debate on “pornographic” material being found in school libraries across Michigan.
“Dixon’s not the only one worried about this issue. So is this guy she totally made up,” Colbert told his viewers.
Colbert then played a clip of Dixon saying, “I had a gentleman come up to me just a few nights ago, and he said, ‘I found content in my school library describing how to have sex to my son.’”
“Okay, fine, ‘that happened,’” Colbert quipped using air quotes.
One has to wonder why Colbert is being so foolish as to claim Dixon is lying and attacking her in such a scathing way. In this day, it's not a stretch at all to say that libraries at schools may have pornographic materials that is visual, or written, or both. This is a real issue that's not open to debate about whether or not it exists.
There are find numerous examples of school board meetings in which parents have discussed the adult-themed content (typically that of the LGBT kind) their children have been exposed to. It's become so extreme that the residents in Dearborn, MI, one of the bluest places in the nation, recently protested against the school district because that libraries were filled with books about how to have gay sexual encounters.
But this is Colbert, who is said to be an intelligent person, claiming that Dixon lied without even considering the notion that it might be true. The Detroit Free-Press, a liberal newspaper, criticized the late-night host and proved that the person who was in question is actually real.
“A Dearborn resident whose existence was doubted by comedian Stephen Colbert during a monologue last week has a message for the CBS late night host: I am real, and so is my switch to the Republican Party,” Free Press reporter Niraj Warikoo began his report Wednesday.
Khalil Othman came forward as the man Dixon had referred to at a recent rally of hers he had attended.
“To claim that I’m not here, I don’t exist, I’m not human, that’s absolute ignorance,” Othman told the paper. “If this person did his due diligence and start researching or has his team do a little bit of research of who’s this person who attended Dixon’s rally, they will be able to find my name right away easy on social media. Just Google it.”
Will Colbert apologize for declaring Dixon a liar? It isn’t like to happen.
The inability of the people who are on the left to comprehend that you shouldn't be defying parents is a grave political flaw, and one that will hurt both the Democratic Party a lot on election day. As the scenario in Dearborn illustrates, this isn't a political issue. Parents don't want their children to be “transitioned” at school. They don't want books on gay sexuality to be placed in libraries at school. People who live in bubbles like Colbert might not be interested, however they will be made to.
