This is astonishingly intellectually dishonest. Bowers acknowledges that his anger at Soros for funding the caravan was a catalyst for his attack. Yesterday, Fox Business, admitting its anti-Semitic tone, apparently took down all traces of the Chris Farrell interview that blamed the caravan on, among other leftist entities, the “Soros-occupied State Department”. But yeah, Myers and Colbert are responsible.
I watch them often. They are unapologetically savage in their mocking of Donald Trump, and absolutely contribute to the political diviseness we all claim to abhor.
I’m a Christian. If anyone should be attuned to and sensitive about mockery of my religion, it’s me. That’s not what they do, if you bother to watch. They call out religious hypocrisy, such as Pat Robertson saying that the murder of Jamal Koshoggi (“one man”) should not be a consideration in our business dealings with Saudi Arabia. Colbert’s quip was along the lines of “As all Christians know, one man’s death can never be that important.” You can consider that a mockery of religion or, as I do, you can consider it well-justified political satire. As all Christians know, Jesus had a real problem with religious hypocrisy.
I have NEVER heard Myers or Colbert mock the sincere faith of any Christian, Muslim, or Jew. Any jokes I’ve heard from them usually involve a disparity between a religious leader’s public statements or actions and the supposed tenets of their faith. If you have evidence otherwise please post a link. It shouldn’t be hard, as all of their show clips are available online.
