FCC Will Not Punish A**wipe Stephen Colbert for Trump “**** holster” Obscene Insult


So-called comedians can say anything they like in nightclubs or on the Internet, but television is a public utility that traditionally was kept clean since children would be watching.

The FCC no longer does its job.

What we have left is to boycott Stephen Colbert’s show and his advertisers.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said on Tuesday it would not take any action over thousands of complaints about a crude joke that late-night television host Stephen Colbert told about U.S. President Donald Trump and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

The oral sex joke was bleeped before the airing of the May 1 episode of CBS Corp’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” but prompted a social media campaign to get Colbert fired.

FCC spokesman Neil Grace said the agency had reviewed the complaints and “concluded that there was nothing actionable under the FCC’s rules.”

A CBS spokesman declined to comment on the decision.

FCC rules for programs on broadcast television after 10 p.m. only bar obscene content. For content to be ruled obscene, it must meet a three-pronged test established by the U.S. Supreme Court.

It is rare for the FCC to impose fines for obscene or indecent conduct. It has issued just two fines since 2010 to television stations for improper conduct, most recently in 2015 to a Virginia TV station for a sexually explicit video aired during an early evening newscast.

The Parents Television Council, which has criticized the FCC in the past, said it agreed with the agency’s decision. “It was crude. It was indecent. But it was protected speech,” PTC President Tim Winter said of Colbert’s joke.

The bleeped joke, which made reference to Trump’s oft-stated admiration for the Russian president during the 2016 election campaign, came at the end of an insult-heavy monolog by Colbert.

It triggered a #FireColbert trending Twitter hashtag, with Trump supporters calling for a boycott of CBS advertisers, some people accusing Colbert of being homophobic, others accusing left-wingers of hypocrisy, and still more defending the comedian, whose show has surged in popularity since he stepped up his attacks on the Republican president.

Colbert isn’t funny, but here’s the offending monologue in case you missed it:

  1. So, let me think here… They have a concrete number that are active, therefore they know who these perps are; and yet they just sit there and ramble off the numbers without arresting them by the hundreds and interrogating them? Does anyone have the ability to think through this bullshit anymore???

  2. USA seems to have a lot of potty mouths, among the 2% especially. I wonder which Jew invented the cock holster insult? It seems to intentionally slur the cowboy type hero with six guns in holsters. Naturally very, very few of those cowpokes or lawmen would have been Jews, who avoid all physical work as much as Arabs do.
    However, land grabbers, carpet baggers and big cattlemen, cattle rustlers, and corrupt sheriffs – there would have been quote a few Jews in these profitable roles.

  3. Colbert is another one that needs to be in a labor camp. The POS has probably never done an honest day of work in his life. Soft hands and tells stupid jokes for a living. Unproductive scum.
