Default Dear #CancelColbert:

"You are a bunch of ****ing idiots. And everything wrong with America, of course. "

That was my initial reaction.

But thinking about it, I delete something like one out of every 273 racial and homophobic slurs I see on the NBA forum, which actually makes me a weak force for censorship and every slur isn't being used by a raging bigot, often it's just some ignorant teen.

So who am I to judge a bunch of twits that are overreacting to a joke? It could be argued that I do the same thing several times a day.

The moral of the story? I have no idea. Which may mean that I'm just stupid. Oh well.

well said, and i tend to observe my own reactions the same way in many areas.

also, "overreacting" might be another way of saying 'reacting to the last link in the chain without regard to the chain itself... if you know what i mean. that very much fits the colbert story, from what i understand.

the previous link(s) might be too much to handle, so they stop at the one that they feel righteousness / authority over.

It's just crazy to me that people don't get Colbert (and that wasn't even Colbert). The inability to comprehend what he's doing on TV is a bad sign for a person's intelligence.

i think it's just as much a refusal as it is an inability. maybe moreso, by and large.


still amazed that the bush team brought colbert in as the featured comic during that white house press dinner a few years back.

The whole #cancelcolbert thing is case of people reacting to a tweet without understanding the whole context of the joke. Its honestly just a case of misunderstanding.

Dont know what this is about, but am positive if a conservative pundit did the EXACT SAME THING that Colbert did, whatever it was, OP would be screaming and pissing himself.


OP is well known to be LITERALLY the most pissy uptight PC f@ggot pansy on this board.

I don't respond well to people who misunderstand me, so I think we should cancel all Asians. There, I said what we were all thinking
