Repugnant! Stephen Colbert, Joy Reid Insist GOP Is a ‘Death Cult’

Breaking News

On Monday’s Late Show, left-wing “comedian” Stephen Colbert had on far-left MSNBC “journalist” Joy Reid and it was as bad as you can possibly imagine. The two of them did the typical routine where they mocked Fox News and said that Trump supporters were in a “death cult.”

“When you see other anchors on different networks questioning whether vaccines are good or bad for you and not revealing whether they’ve been vaccinated, do you have any particular reaction to that?” Colbert asked Reid.

“It doesn’t make sense why folks at that particular network, which I think we all know who we mean, would want to kill their own viewers. Their viewers are older, more susceptible to COVID,” she replied, suggesting Fox News was telling viewers not to get vaccinated.

“And I don’t understand what the point is of killing them because everyone on air at Fox has been vaccinated,” Reid continued. “I would put any money on it. They were vaccinated first. I’m sure they shoved little old ladies out of the way to get their vaccines first. They’re all vaccinated, they’re living in remote cabins.”

The liberal audience repeatedly laughed at the thought of Fox News viewers dying. 

“Is one of their sponsors a coffin manufacturer?” Colbert joked. He added: “The next step. What’s next? Walk-in bathtubs is the next step. Just put a lid on it.”

Referring to President Biden’s recent statement saying that Facebook was killing people due to the spread of misinformation on their platform — which he has since walked back — Reid and Colbert agreed that Facebook was the main reason people were dying.

“Biden blamed platforms like Facebook for the misinformation,” said Colbert, “Do you think he’s right?”

“I do because — the targeting of anti-vax rhetoric is similar to the targeting we saw during the election both in 2016 and 2020, and the targets have been Republicans, particularly white evangelical Republicans, African-Americans and Latinos,” said Reid. “And surprise, surprise, the same three groups are targeting again with anti-vax information from a very small number of people and they seem determined to get that triad of people to not be vaccinated.”

She then went on to insult Trump supporters, because Trump apparently always has to come up in these kinds of discussions. “I mean, the Trump following is in many ways fundamentally a cult,” Reid ranted. “It’s a cult in every sense and now it appears to be sort of a Jim Jones era cult.”

“A death cult,” Colbert added. “That’s ultimately who where it ends. If the leader doesn’t care whether you live or die, that’s a death cult.”

Here is a transcript of the Monday Show:

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
7/19/2021
12:18:52 AM

STEPHEN COLBERT: As a journalist, who — I assume you see it as your job to try to bring the truth through reporting and dialogue to the people out there.

JOY REID: Yeah.

COLBERT: When you see other anchors on different networks questioning whether vaccines are good or bad for you and not revealing whether they’ve been vaccinated, do you have any particular reaction to that?

REID: You know and this — when we had our show call this morning, this took up like three-quarters of it. Because number one, it doesn’t make sense to me why the folks at that particular network, which I think we all know who we mean, would want to kill their own viewers. Their viewers are older; they’re viewers are more susceptible to COVID.

COLBERT: That is actually — I haven’t thought about that, yeah. 

REID:  And I don’t understand what the point is of killing them because everyone on air at Fox has been vaccinated. I would put any money on it. They were vaccinated first. I’m sure they shoved little old ladies out of the way to get their vaccines first. They’re all vaccinated, they’re living in remote cabins

COLBERT: No way the corporation would allow them in the building without a vaccine

REID: Rupert Murdoch literally got himself in four SUVs and went in a fleet to go get vaccinated like he was the king of England. They’re all vaccinated. And so if they’re telling you not to do it, you have to ask why they don’t care about you when you’re their base. And again, the people who are saying this, what is in it for them, for their own people to die?

COLBERT: Is one of their sponsors a coffin manufacturer? The next step.

REID: It must be, I don’t know. 

COLBERT: What’s next? Walk-in bathtubs, the next step. Just put a lid on it. Now, Biden blamed — we don’t have walk-in bath tubs as a sponsor here, do we?

REID: Not anymore.

COLBERT: No? Good, good. But Biden blamed platforms like Facebook for the misinformation.

REID: Yeah. 

COLBERT: Do you think he’s right?

REID: I do. I do because again the targeting of anti-vax rhetoric is very similar to the targeting we saw during the election, both in 2016 and 2020, and the targets have been Republicans, particularly white evangelical Republicans, African-Americans and Latinos. And surprise, surprise, it’s the same three groups of people who are being targeted again with anti-vax information from a very small number of people and they seem determined to get that triad of people to not be vaccinated. And when it comes to the people of color, I get it, they don’t care about those people. But again I go back to evangelical Republicans being the biggest target of this disinformation campaign, I don’t understand. I mean, the Trump following is in many ways fundamentally a cult. It’s a cult in every sense and now it appears to be sort of a Jim Jones era cult.

COLBERT: A death cult.

REID: A death cult.

COLBERT: Yeah, that’s ultimately who where it ends. If the leader doesn’t care whether you live or die, that’s a death cult.

REID: I mean, the reality is — I don’t know if I’ve said this to you before, but I’ve said it before, a religion is when your savior dies for you. A cult is when you’re being asked to die for your savior. And unfortunately, that is where we are with the Republican Party. It’s bizarre. My father leaned Republican. This isn’t because I dislike Republicans I’m saying it. There’s something wrong and there’s something broken in the party and, unfortunately, it’s a party that now fundamentally doesn’t believe in democracy, is in favor of killing yourself, but not protecting yourself from a deadly virus, and wants to ensure that the people who don’t die vote for them and win? I don’t even understand the math.

COLBERT: I was never good at math.
