Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Report can be a funny guy.
Yes, I know that he mocks conservatives up and down but that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh at his ridiculous antics from time to time… like his 2008 commentary on the Belgians buying out Budweiser, which was downright hysterical!
Right now, however, the Comedy Central faux news commentator is something very far from amusing.
Ever since President Obama got elected nearly four years ago, Colbert has gotten it into his head that he’s something more than just an intentional joke.
First there was the 2010 “March to Keep Fear Alive,” which was created to mock the Tea Party and sway the mid-term elections. And then, around the same time, he actually went to Congress to give his “expert” opinion on immigration and why we need as many illegal ones as possible.
Now, he’s directly butting into the GOP presidential field.
Like he’s an expert on something other than satirical commentaries on matters he doesn’t care to learn the truth about?
Colbert might very well think that he’s helping out by interfering in something as serious as America’s future. I don’t know him, so I can’t say one way or the other.
What I can say, however, is that he’s not doing anybody – himself included – any favors by making light of an overwhelming ignorance on issues that is destroying this nation.
It’s high time Colbert learns that lesson, though he seems set on ignoring it until it’s too late.
