Consider This For A Moment
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.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
