Ever since Jon Stewart left “The Daily Show,” wannabes who came out of his orbit have infested late night “comedy” shows, turning them into one-sided, DNC talking points lectures. One reason I enjoyed sparring with Jon was that, like Bill Maher, while his politics are very different from mine, he managed to remain funny, fair and reasonably open-minded. When he thought his own side of the political aisle was being ridiculous, he would skewer them, too.
His pale imitators got a shock lesson in how far below Stewart’s standards they rank when Jon made a guest appearance on Stephen Colbert’s otherwise unwatchable CBS show and stunned the host with a brutal but hilarious rant about the implausibility of the “official” bat soup origin story of COVID-19. Colbert seemed shell-shocked, although I couldn’t tell whether that was from interacting with someone who didn’t parrot the Democrat Party line or just from having something on his show that was actually funny.
Almost as much fun as watching Stewart mocking the official Wuhan origin story was reading all the outraged Twitter tweets from leftists whose heads were exploding over hearing something on Colbert’s show that didn’t reinforce their own unfounded sense of always being right.
They completely missed the point of what Stewart was saying and why it was shocking that he was actually allowed to say it. They live in a world where something can be called a crazy “fringe” belief even though a majority of Americans suspect it’s true. Fortunately, Stephen Miller was happy to explain to them the important point that they were missing.
He also notes that if they’re melting down over hearing someone question the CCP’s story on the virus origins, imagine how they’ll freak out if anyone they pay attention to ever tells them that Hunter Biden’s laptop is real, Dr. Fauci hasn't been honest, or any number of other things they’ve taken as unassailable truth instead of fake news.
Luckily, my readers won’t have that problem, since pointing out fake news and laughing at it is one of our favorite pastimes around here.
