Tonight, the official “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” published this image mocking a recent tweet by President Trump. I’m sure the people involved with the show thought it was pretty funny and believed it to be honest and true as well. If you wonder who is helping tear apart democracy* in this country, look no further.
At its core, the message embodied in this post is simply, “yeah, with no evidence, let alone conviction, of wrong-doing, we should remove a sitting, duly elected, federal official from office.”
I’m sure the show, and all involved, will hide behind some lame excuse at trying to be funny. It isn’t. It is advocating tossing the rule of law out of the window and ignoring an election that, by all evidence, was conducted according to the laws of our country.
This is stupid, dangerous, and provoking. And, furthermore, it betrays a common flaw by those on the liberal side of the spectrum: short-term thinking. Imagine if, if the parties involved were reversed in 10 or 15 years. What would they say if some conservative media figure said something similar?
The whole “orange man bad” theme continues to live on and will continue to undermine any credible advancement of real policy platforms from the democrats.
* By the way, the United States follows democratic processes in our federal republic system of government.
