[Ed. – Sounds racist.]
In a Rolling Stone interview published on Wednesday, the liberal late-night host Stephen Colbert said that straight, white Christian Americans should not feel good about themselves right now.
Asked about his 10-year stint as the host of the leftist “Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, Colbert jumped into a rambling answer.
He said a “dark feeling” should come with being proud of being a straight, white, Christian American.
This was actually two things.
Colbert was making a confession — and he was asking a question at the same time.
“It had a thesis statement about what feels right to you, as opposed to what is supported by fact. That’s the thesis statement of the entire 10 years. But the question was, why am I, Stephen Colbert — white, male, straight, Christian, American — a hegemonic figure? In my life, I don’t just mean in character,” the comedian said in the interview.
He continued, “I’m like, ‘Yeah, f*** yeah, me, me. Me, white, male Christian, American, straight. Number one!’ That is a dark feeling, because it is indulging in an appetite for yourself.”
