“I believe we just build a wall at the border and tell the world (whistles and flips off the world).”
– Stephen Colbert in an interview with Tea Party Express founder Amy Kremer
Jon Stewart will call out his guests and argue with them somewhat respectfully. But Stephen Colbert will totally eviscerate a guest by agreeing with their stance more than any other person in the world ever has…ever. And in doing so, Ms. Kremer’s position was left in a puddle of stupitude along with the failed presidential run of Donald Trump.
You should watch the whole interview (below), but the moment quoted above was by far my favorite and the scariest. The whole “let’s get our crap in order before we start concerning ourselves with the world’s problems” is idiotic. The worlds problems are our problems. There’s no border.
This hits right at the heart of why I’ve launched the Go Glocal Project. We live in tough times and budgets are being slashed, but we can’t turn our backs on one another.
If we tell the world to f—off!, in the long run we’re just f—ing ourselves.
And that’s the Word.
