Bitter Much? Colbert Declares Self-Defense Laws Need to Change

bitter-much?-colbert-declares-self-defense-laws-need-to-change

During his Tuesday monologue, CBS’s Late Show host Stephen Colbert used his supposed credentials as a comedian to demand a change in Wisconsin’s self-defense laws due to the not guilty verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. His reasoning? Well, it just doesn’t make sense to him and hurts his feelings!

For Colbert, he began unspooling his hate by complaining about the so-called unforgivable act of the crossing of state lines: “Of course, the big news on Friday was that after being accused of crossing state lines, killing two people, and wounding another last year during a Black Lives Matter protest Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all counts.”

The audience — being reliably far to the left — began to boo vociferously.

After the booing from the studio audience died down, Colbert declared, “Yeah, okay, cards on the table, I’m not a legal expert, so I can’t tell you whether or not Kyle Rittenhouse broke the law, but I can tell you this: if he didn’t break the law, we should change the law.”

This time, the audience reacted with cheers and applause, which gave Colbert the boost to add: “That seems simple. That seems simple.”

Apparently, Colbert thinks self-defense claims should be tied to one’s home address.

As the applause dissipated, he reached for a mammoth-sized strawman: “If Emily Post said it was perfectly proper to go to Thanksgiving, drop trou and leave your ass print in the pumpkin pie, I’d be like, “okay, not illegal, but the system is clearly broken.” So, Rittenhouse was found not guilty, but only a complete moron would celebrate this clear tragedy by making this guy a hero.” 

Of course that just raises the question of who the rioters are in this Thanksgiving analogy. Although making a mess of Thanksgiving does sound like something a leftist would do.

CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

STEPHEN COLBERT: Of course, the big news on Friday was that, after being accused of crossing state lines, killing two people, and wounding another last year during a Black Lives Matter protest, Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted on all counts. Okay. [AUDIENCE BOOS] Yeah, okay, cards on the table, I’m not a legal expert, so I can’t tell you whether or not Kyle Rittenhouse broke the law, but I can tell you this: if he didn’t break the law, we should change the law. [AUDIENCE CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] That seems simple. That seems simple. If Emily Post said it was perfectly proper to go to Thanksgiving, drop trou and leave your ass print in the pumpkin pie, I’d be like, “okay, not illegal, but the system is clearly broken.” So, Rittenhouse was found not guilty, but only a complete moron would celebrate this clear tragedy by making this guy a hero.
