The American political left has been handing out free passes to profane celebrities for decades, specifically when it comes to their attacks on conservative American leaders.
This has never been more true than it is right now, as the democrats and their liberal cohorts are incensed, enraged, and downright despondent over the election of real estate mogul Donald J. Trump to the Oval Office.
The sheer potency of the venom that is being spit from the left is unprecedented. We’ve not only had threats and attacks aimed directly at the President of the United States, but we have also been subjected to massive and egregious affronts to the very freedoms that this nation was founded around.
And then we had the mudslinging.
Democrats, progressives, and the like have been running wild with disgusting and horrific insults tucked away for our President. Between insinuating that Donald Trump is sexually attracted to his daughter Ivanka, and publishing a fictitious dossier detailing lewd and unsanitary acts that the President supposedly engaged in with Russian prostitutes, many believed that the rhetoric aimed at the Oval Office couldn’t get any more crude.
But it did.
Enter Stephen Colbert, who earlier this week somehow avoided losing his gig in late night television after suggesting that U.S. President Donald Trump was sexually involved in acts of fellatio with Vladimir Putin. [Colbert’s actual quote is far below the standard of class that this editor feels comfortable putting to print.] Now, the FCC may like to have a word with Colbert over his verbiage.
“’I have had a chance to see the clip now and so, as we get complaints — and we’ve gotten a number of them — we are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it’s been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we’ll take the appropriate action,’ Pai told Philadelphia’s Talk Radio 1210 WPHT.
“’Traditionally, the agency has to decide, if it does find a violation, what the appropriate remedy should be,’ he continued. ‘A fine, of some sort, is typically what we do.’ Pai was appointed to the FCC in 2012 by President Barack Obama. He was elevated to the chairmanship of the commission by Trump in January.”
Colbert’s crude and uncouth declaration from his shoddy soapbox is just a piece of the unfortunate new reality in which we live. The left will continue their descent into derogatory dementia while the rest of the nation gets to work on making America great again.
