I'm A'gin It!
First of all, I have a hard time with people who think they are the be all, is all for the whole world and seem to be more impressed with themselves than they are the impact they have on others. People who star in their own movies rarely exist in a reality I recognize. Therefore, they simply cease to have any direct impression on me.
The things this questionable self appointed comedian had to say recently weren't funny, weren't helpful, weren't respectful of anyone and created nothing positive at all. And in fact, he merely served to amp up the hate and negativity a lot of us are striving to put behind us. But there will always be those who enjoy a fire so much, they can't help but run up and throw their little cans of gasoline on the blaze to make it bigger and burn brighter and they don't care about the after party.....at.all.
I know there is a huge cry for him to be fired and while I don't disagree that there should be some accountability for his actions, I don't believe this is the best course. I think for conservatives to resort to the tactics we observe from the radicalized left and the snowflakes in the land, is the wrong course of action.
I believe we should hold ourselves to a much higher standard that the examples being played out for us in the media every day..
What Mr. Colbert and his network deserve to have happen is for people like me to simply slip out the door and not watch another thing they put forth. Advertisers should merely say, "we've decided not to advertise with you in the future" and offer no explanation....just leave and take your money with you.
At some point....someone will review the timeline for falling ratings and diminishing revenue and trace it back to the root of its beginning and at that point they have the opportunity to continue down the path they've set their feet upon, or embark on a new journey.
That would be an interesting thing to follow, as so far it hasn't happened with certain factions of the political arena or the news. They just don't get it and they keep thinking they can strong arm us into not knowing or feeling what we know and feel. It isn't going to happen. We are smarter, better informed, better researchers and far more driven than they give us credit for but instead of listening.....they continue to grind the same grist in the mill.
I say, let Colbert hoist himself on his own petard....let him spin on his own whirlygig and eventually stew in his own juice. I don't have time for him....he simply doesn't matter enough for me to give him fuel for his own personal little blaze which will eventually become his own roast.
And that's the way I sees it!
