Colbert and His FBI Moment
Last week Donald Trump fired James Comey, Director of the FBI. As the announcement was made public, comedian Stephen Colbert was live on T.V. and interrupted his monologue to tell his audience the news. The audience cheered. Colbert, visibly shocked and displeased with the response said, ” Wow we must have a lot of Trump supporters here.” Nothing could have been further from the truth. Colbert hosts The Late Show, which for the most part is left-leaning comedy that roasts Conservatives…not attracts them.
Since the media and the Democrat party had, for months, been bashing Comey for his role in “costing Hilary Clinton the Presidency” the generally Democrat-leaning audience thought the news of Comey’s firing was a good thing. Its no secret that Stephen Colbert hates President Trump. Therefore, his audience was cheering for an outcome they thought Colbert favored. Imagine their shock when Colbert lashed out at them for being Trump supporters because of their applause.
Colbert’s shock and problem stemmed from the fact that his audience simply hadn’t gotten “the latest memo” from the Left on how they were supposed to think and feel about the issue. The good little lemmings didn’t know they were now supposed to hate Trump for firing the very person who was investigating the alleged Trump-Putin connection. You see, the Trump-Russian narrative had overtaken the previous narrative that “Comey cost Hillary the election.” The lemmings were a bit behind.
Let us be clear. If it is proven by the now appointed Independent Counsel that President Trump actually colluded with the Russians he should resign or be removed from office. Its just that to-date, there simply is no such proof. Not one scintilla of evidence. Yet the calls for resignation and impeachment are rampant.
Why, and how, is this so?
The vast majority of Americans have stopped thinking for themselves. There are several reasons why:
- The sheer volume of 24/7 data and information flooding into our lives and our minds;
- The ever-increasing pace of technological development and our efforts to keep up with how it is impacting our lives for the good and for the ill;
- The deliberate agendas of the far Left, the Communists, Socialists, radical Islamists and Fascists to to take down the United States (their common end regardless of individual interests);
- A media that has lost its true purpose (to impartially inform) and is in bed with and controlled by a political agenda;
- When overwhelmed, its easier to abdicate thought and let someone else do it for you.
Numbers 1–5 above have led too many Americans to number 6. But Free Will is like a muscle. Use it or lose it.
There is no greater freedom than the freedom to think for one self…to see one’s life and the world through your own unique perspective based upon your own experiences. It is freedom of thought that has provided the life-saving process by which POW’s in every war have survived despite their external circumstances or the lies told them by their captors. Former President Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
Americans are on the precipice of relinquishing freedom of thought. We are like POW’s who have given up the ability to think for ourselves and have acquiesced to the manufactured, external lie perpetrated by our captors. Its just that in our case the captors are the media, our politicians and those in the financial and private sectors who are reaping the rewards of our willingness to give up the God-given ability to think and choose for ourselves in exchange for enslavement.
The red pill or the blue pill? You pick. And pick wisely because one of them is your last pick.
