Democrats love to play the race card when they need to drum up a controversy. But now they’re coming under friendly fire.
And this Leftist media titan may lose his job after this racist rant on live TV.
Race-baiting is one of the Democrat Party’s specialties.
Just a few years ago in 2020, they pushed the Black Lives Matter lie that unarmed black men are gunned down by police daily.
They made excuses for their riots and the result was billions of dollars in damage and dozens dead.
But hiding behind their Critical Race Theory smoke and mirrors are political wolves just trying to score political points.
They routinely attempt to manipulate racial minorities to get their way, even at the expense of demonizing the other half of the country.
And that’s just what veteran late-night host Stephen Colbert did in the wake of the election.
Colbert, who in May said the GOP was “choosing its direction for 2022: original recipe nutballs or extra crispy cuckoo cojones,” was giddy when Democrats performed better than expected. Although Republicans are anticipated to win a slim House majority, control of the Senate remains uncertain.
Colbert went on to characterize Republican aspirations for political office as little more than “fascists” attempting a takeover.
“As a performer, there are three things you don’t want to follow: animals, children, or a fascist takeover of your country,” Colbert taunted. “These results are (sic) a crisp nut-punch to Republican optimism leading up to this election.”
Colbert continued, citing headlines he’d one can only assume he found online.
“’ The vaunted red wave never hit the shore in mid-term elections,’” he said. “‘That’s not a red wave,’ and ‘The red wave was more like a pink splash.’”
He then sealed the deal by equating conservatives and anyone who supports Donald Trump to Ku Klux Klan members.
“Yes, a pink splash,” Colbert said. “It was a salmon drizzle, a rosy wash. It’s like what happens when you accidentally wash your Klan robes with your MAGA hat. It’s just a little pink wash.”
Colbert has often proved his contempt for conservatives. In March, in the face of skyrocketing gas prices that were harming American consumers, Colbert derided struggling average Joes, claiming that it was part of the cost of supporting Ukraine in its conflict with Russia.
“Today, the average gas price in America hit an all-time record high of over $4 a gallon,” he said. “OK, that stings, but a clean conscience is worth a buck or two. It’s important. I’m willing to pay $4/gallon. Hell, I’ll pay $15 a gallon because I drive a Tesla.”
But what more can you expect from someone who has bought into every narrative pushed by the current administration?
Joe Biden spent the past months saying Republicans were “extremists” who followed “semi-fascism.”
This isn’t just some fringe idea on the far reaches of the Left.
This is the main party line they are going to ride all the way through 2024.
