Steve Colbert and His Democrat Friends think Dead Americans are Funny

The residence of US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, at the US consulate compound in Benghazi after the attack

You'd think a political satirist who knew the government had lied about the cause of an attack which left Americans dead would use humor to savage the powers that be.

Not Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert.

"The Colbert Report" host took a long, hard look at Benghazi-gate and decided to target ...

...Fox News.

The clip's deceitful structure isn't just rigorously unfunny. It's shameful. It lets President Obama off the hook for the constantly evolving story line regarding the forces which swarmed the Libyan embassy and killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, concocts a village of straw man arguments and mocks one of the few media outlets willing to ask tough, pointed questions of the administration.

Shame, too, on the audience for gobbling it all up. It's one thing for a liberal crowd to applaud a pro-choice argument, or a gag which mocked a member of the GOP. Have at it. Nothing wrong with partisan applause.

Giving Colbert kudos for sweeping this incident under the political rug while taking shots at Fox News is appalling.




A Republican President deposed over a minor burglary.

BENGHAZIGATE DEAD: 4 AMERICANS, unknown number of terrorists and civilians.

An American president misleads the American People for weeks and his media thinks that's funny.

DEAD: A collapsed foreign policy. A lost mideast.

It's gotta be Bush's Fault!
