Conservatives Want To Cancel Colbert Because He Imitates Racist Republicans

Conservatives Once Again Prove They Don't Understand Satire With Ridiculous #CancelColbert Hashtag

Dumb #cancelcolbert hashtag on twitter has liberals laughing at conservatives inability to understand anything… Let’s witness their failure for ourselves.

The #cancelcolbert hashtag on twitter has been trending since March 27, 2014. The hashtag illustrates the flaws in republican perceptions of the world around them, somewhat like Colbert’s half hour comedy show, called the Colbert Report.

Why is #cancelcolbert trending on twitter?

Stephen Colbert is not a conservative, but he plays one on TV.  The premise of the show is that Colbert plays the role of a sexist, racist, greedy, self-absorbed, conservative talk show host. Through comedy,  he manages to point out the many flaws in conservative ideology. He does that by pretending to agree with their extremist and hateful views. This is all obvious to those who watch the show. Not so much to those who can’t tell the difference between comedy and reality.

On March 27, the Colbert Report featured a segment on Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder. In character, he said:

“Folks, this move by Dan Snyder inspires me, because my show has frequently come under attack for having a so-called offensive mascot, my beloved character Ching Chong Ding Dong. … Offensive or not — NOT — Ching Chong is part of the unique heritage of the Colbert Nation that cannot change. But I’m willing to show the Asian community that I care by introducing the Ching Chong Ding Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever. … I owe all this sensitivity to Redskins owner Dan Snyder. So Asians, send your thank-you letters to him, not me.”

A small quote was taken from the segment and tweeted by the twitter handle @colbertreport. (thanks to Variety)

Not racist conservatives are outrageously outraged.

The tweet provoked an enormous amount of outrage from conservatives, who are shocked and offended by Colbert’s bigotry and racism. Never mind that the character Colbert plays on the Colbert Report is fictional, or that the character is inspired by the scores of racist, bigots who populate the conservative party.

The account that sent out the tweet is owned by Comedy Central.

Colbert’s attempts to clarify the source of the tweet have, not surprisingly, fallen on deaf ears.

#cancelcolbert has been taken over by defenders of Colbert.

As is usually case when conservatives try to start a hashtag on twitter, there are far more tweets mocking the absurdity of  #cancelcolbert, then there are supporting the the tag itself.
