Late Night Entertainment Moves Radical Left To Salvage Post-Trump Ratings

Late Night Entertainment Moves Radical Left To Salvage Post-Trump Ratings

Writer for Stephen Colbert refers to America’s Founding Fathers as “slave-owning douche nozzles”

https://youtu.be/UuACnbYxMQI

Virtually all of the late night ‘entertainment’ shows are now voices for the radical left. These shows used to exist for the enjoyment of all Americans, but now they parrot DNC talking points, demean traditional American beliefs, and mock anything to the right of Bernie Sanders.

They really enjoyed bashing Trump nightly, but now that he is gone they’re making up for it with other topics.

A recent episode of ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ targeted the nation’s founders.

Brian Flood reports at FOX News:

Stephen Colbert’s writer calls for reparations, calls Founding Fathers slave-owning ‘douche nozzles’

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” writer John Thibodeaux called for reparations and referred to America’s Founding Fathers as slave-owning “douche nozzles” on Thursday night.

The far-left Colbert was discussing the Biden administration’s effort to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill when Thibodeaux chimed in.

“It’s nice to be on the money, but we want to have the money. Recognition is nice. Reparations are better,” Thibodeaux said in a clip flagged by NewsBusters. “Plus, she won’t exactly be in the best company. You know who else is on those bills?”

Colbert began naming America’s Founding Fathers who appear on currency, starting with George Washington.

“Slave owner,” Thibodeaux interrupted.

Colbert then suggested Alexander Hamilton, who has gained fans on the left after the enormously success of the musical “Hamilton,” but Thibodeaux wasn’t a fan.

“Slave buyer,” Thibodeaux shot back.

Late Night with Seth Meyers recently went to bat for Ilhan Omar. Meyers was outraged that anyone would compare her to Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Emma Nolan writes at Newsweek:

Seth Meyers Condemns Fox for Comparing Marjorie Taylor Greene to Ilhan Omar

Seth Meyers has blasted Fox News for comparing Marjorie Taylor Greene to Ilhan Omar.

On Wednesday, Fox News’ Bill Hemmer sought to create an equivalence between the QAnon-supporting Greene and Omar.

“One might be weird and kooky…. the other is seen as racist,” Hemmer said of the two lawmakers from opposing parties.

Hemmer noted that Omar has previously faced accusations of anti-Semitism after criticizing some pro-Israel groups.

Joe Concha, who covers media for The Hill, has written an excellent analysis of this:

Without Trump, late-night ‘comedy’ becomes even more insufferable

Late-night comedy used to represent the ultimate escapism for viewers young and old: There was Carson, Letterman, Leno. Later came Stewart, Ferguson, O’Brien, Kimmel and Fallon.

Before June 2015, each of these men had a unique set of skills — skills they had acquired over very long careers. Short version: Each could make an audience laugh in his own way, aided by excellent writing staffs that could churn out quality content and A-list guests on a nightly basis.

But then Donald Trump rode down that escalator at Trump Tower, and within a short period of time became an unlikely frontrunner for the Republican nomination for president. This was an absolute Godsend, particularly for Stephen Colbert. Because at the time, the CBS late-night host was mired in third place in the TV ratings, well behind the Jimmys Fallon and Kimmel. On some nights, NBC’s 12:30 pm ET program beat his show at the friendlier 11:30 pm slot despite massive hype after being selected as Letterman’s replacement at the Ed Sullivan theater. It was looking like Chevy Chase all over again.

The reason for Colbert’s struggles was an easy one to trace: He seemed to want his show to appeal only to the half of the country that saw conservatives and Republicans as evil idiots. A Hollywood Reporter survey in November 2015 showed that only 17 percent of self-described Republicans watched Colbert. For context, Jimmy Fallon, almost entirely apolitical and the ratings winner at the time, the split was only 36-31 Democrats to Republicans.

Read the whole thing.

The hosts of these shows put their personal politics ahead of everything. It’s selfish and childish, but they don’t care. Loyalty to the left is all that matters to them.

I’m all for reparations if it includes paid immigration to Africa.
I’m sure they would have much to contribute to Rwanda.

I bet John Thibodeaux has some “slave owning douche nozzles” in his family tree. Presentist comments such as his are particularly odious.

Late night is like a weak drug to an addict.

there is so much dust on our vidiot that you’d be hard pressed to see what the image was if you turned it on…

and it’s at least 15 years old.

The late night “comics” didn’t turn leftist because of Donald Trump. They headed that way decades before he was president. Maybe you’ve only just noticed them?

    Yeah, this headline astounded me. You mean they WEREN’T already radical left? There was farther they could go? What are they doing now, wearing Mao jackets and waving Little Red Books?

    I’m too old.

Don’t really care what happens to Colbert an the rest of the self-proclaimed “late night comics”. Haven’t watched late night since Johnny Carson retired and they replaced him with Jay Leno.

So I hope all these douche nozzles just disappear into well deserved obscurity now that they are no longer relevant and their careers are tanking.

Just replace them with late night movies. Nobody would notice and even if they did I doubt they’d care.

The best part of canceling cable is knowing I no longer finance Corporate Media’s toxic poison. It’s beautiful to be free!

Maybe Camel Harris should be on the $20 bill. Oh wait. What was her father’s family business involvement in Jamaica way back when? Never mind.

Trevor Noah is particularly nasty.
These people have no fear of us because of walls. Ironic, huh?

I’d like to know to what minority supporting charities Stephen Colbert and Thibodeaux regularly contribute.

Colbert is a multi millionaire.
Typical that they prob just want to spend *our* money

The Left is self-destructing in grand style, and they know exactly why. It’s that son-of-a-bitch Johnson. (from Forest Gump)

Entertainers used to understand that it was crazy to alienate half your audience right off the bat. Johnny Carson told topical political jokes every night for thirty years and you had no clue which way he voted. Those days are long gone.

Never really watched much late night tv, mostly because I’m the early to bed type. Won’t watch if they’re so desperate they have to resort to vile smears of the founders for ratings.

I’m glad I don’t watch late night TV. I, for one, don’t appreciate expressions like douche nozzle.

those shows died decades ago, no one that I interact with pays any attention to them. Only the media and stories like this keep them alive.

The infantile likes of Colbert calls the Founding Fathers “slave-owning douche nozzles”.

You have to take that and consider the source: a clown paid to try and humiliate great people, great laws, great traditions.

First: try as he might, Colbert fails because he’s never funny. Ever.

Second: Colbert is an ignoranus. Truly – on a scale of the likes of Sandy Smollet. He has no idea what he is talking about, but, he is paid to be a certain kind of clown, isn’t he?

Third: Who he hell asked him?

Basement shows for basement soyboys and nose ring pink haired fat women.

These are the same clowns who cheered on the election of a senile White man and a mostly India woman, both of which have ancestors a handful of generations back who owned slaves.

If you look up “white trash” in the dictionary, you will see Colbert’s picture. There is probably also a cross-reference to “douche nozzle” as well. What a horrible human being.

The Simpsons have already given the solution to the stupidity of the late-night entertainment. I recommend that we follow their advice:

The only way to end this irritating nonsense is to drive the ratings of these “woke” nags into the cellar.

Sooooo edgy…~yawn~ It’s like Colbert using “cock holster” and the braying sheep responding with guffaws and “woooooo”s prompted by the in_studio flashing signs.

When Kimmel became a full_time Trump basher, I realized he was running a campaign of Leftist do-goodery and making his bones as protection if anyone were ever to bring out the skeletons in his closet like, say, his black-face portrayal of Karl Malone as a moron, “Hungry Hungry Oprahs”, The “Stop Womens Suffrage” bit, Girls jumping on trampolines, and so on.
