Stephen Colbert Calls Tudor Dixon a Liar, Gets Laid out by Liberal Newspaper

Townhall Media

Stephen Colbert is everything that’s wrong with late-night comedy. Far from the somewhat inclusive, actually funny environment that existed with hosts like Jay Leno and Johnny Carson, the current landscape is full of far-left figures giving monologues for partisan applause rather than laughs.


Jokes have become a thing of the past, replaced by a tired mockery of one’s political opponents that always points in one direction. Is it any wonder Greg Gutfeld is managing to outdraw many of the historical late shows despite being on a cable network?

For his part, Colbert has been in a running gun battle with Jimmy Kimmel to see who can be the biggest hack on late-night television, and for the moment, the “Late Show” host has managed to seize the crown. During a monologue lambasting Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon last Wednesday, Colbert called her a liar for saying she had met a man who found pornographic material in his child’s school library.

Fox News has the report.

Last Wednesday, Colbert pummeled Dixon for sounding the alarm during the Oct. 25 gubernatorial debate on “pornographic” material being found in school libraries across Michigan.

“Dixon’s not the only one worried about this issue. So is this guy she totally made up,” Colbert told his viewers.

Colbert then played a clip of Dixon saying, “I had a gentleman come up to me just a few nights ago, and he said, ‘I found content in my school library describing how to have sex to my son.’”

“Okay, fine, ‘that happened,’” Colbert quipped using air quotes.

One can’t help but ask why Colbert would be so stupid as to accuse Dixon of lying and to go after her in such a definitive manner. After all, in this day and age, it’s not crazy at all to suggest that some school libraries contain pornographic material in the visual medium, in word form, or both. It’s a very real problem that isn’t at all up for debate as to whether it exists or not.


In fact, you can find dozens of examples from school board meetings where parents have presented the adult-themed material (typically of the LGBT variety) their kids have been exposed to. It’s gotten so bad that even residents of Dearborn, MI, one of the bluest areas in the country, recently revolted against their school district because the libraries were stocked with books on how to have gay sex.

Yet, here’s Colbert, supposedly a smart guy (lol) rushing to say Dixon lied without even entertaining the idea that the receipts might exist. Sure enough, The Detroit Free-Press, a liberal newspaper, laid out the late-night host, revealing that the man in question absolutely does exist.

“A Dearborn resident whose existence was doubted by comedian Stephen Colbert during a monologue last week has a message for the CBS late night host: I am real, and so is my switch to the Republican Party,” Free Press reporter Niraj Warikoo began his report Wednesday.

Khalil Othman came forward as the man Dixon had referred to at a recent rally of hers he had attended.

“To claim that I’m not here, I don’t exist, I’m not human, that’s absolute ignorance,” Othman told the paper. “If this person did his due diligence and start researching or has his team do a little bit of research of who’s this person who attended Dixon’s rally, they will be able to find my name right away easy on social media. Just Google it.”


Whoops. Will Colbert apologize for falsely calling Dixon a liar? No one should hold their breath for that to happen, but we can add this episode to the long list of reasons he’s a terrible person.

The inability of those on the far left to understand that you don’t mess with parents is a fatal political flaw, and it’s one that’s going to cost the Democratic Party big-time on election day. As the situation I cited in Dearborn shows, this isn’t a partisan issue. Most parents do not want their kids “transitioned” at school. They do not want books about gay sex to be put in school libraries. Bubble-dwellers like Colbert may not care, but they will be made to care.
