TRIGGER WARNING: THIS SHOW PRODUCED BY TWO WHITE MALES WITH OPINIONS
Liberal race warriors are eating their own after comedian Stephen Colbert's team tweeted a satirical joke making fun of racial stereotypes. Now racial activists are engaged in a great civil war online over the meaning of satire and whether white males are allowed to have opinions.
The controversy began when someone at Stephen Colbert's team tweeted a joke that was a satirical poke at Redskin's owner Dan Snyder, who is fighting to keep the name of a team that's become the latest target of the politically correct police. Making fun of Snyder's attempt at downplaying the name of the team, Colbert said on his show that he was going to make amends for his own character he played called Ching Chong Ding Dong by setting up the Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever.
Hashtag activist Suey Park, who is an outspoken feminist and anticapitalist, immediately began a campaign on Twitter called #cancelcolbert, which was aimed at sparking a conversation about liberal racism and asian stereotypes. In an interview on the Huffington Post Live last Friday, Park responded to criticism from her fellow liberals over the fact that she's seemingly unable to understand the point of satire, which prompted her to discount their opinions seeing as how the hosts were both white males.
