Censorship or was a line crossed?
“On Monday night, Colbert raged against President Trump in response to his dismissive treatment of CBS News’ John Dickerson. (Note: Dickerson is also a co-host of the Slate Political Gabfest.) “You have more people marching against you than cancer, you talk like a sign language gorilla that got hit in the head,” he cracked, angrily, in his opening monologue. “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.” The latter statement has been met with accusations of homophobia and led to a #FireColbert Twitter campaign on the political right. Colbert later defended the joke while admitting to some “regret” over his choice of words.”
We Americans are living in an unusual time. We have an elected administration with a cabinet that is so offensive to most Americans that it strains credibility to even pretend to be polite. Do you take the high road or take the road less traveled: Saying what you feel using the words as they pour out?
