This incident demonstrates yet again the viciousness and outright evil of the modern-day left — and also shows how they have destroyed a once-thriving American comedy scene by politicizing it. Now idiots such as Ariel Dumas and Stephen Colbert think they’re being funny when they go out and wish evil on Donald Trump and Brett Kavanaugh. They don’t know what being funny even means. They’re so filled with hatred and rage, there isn’t room for any actual comedy. This is yet another manifestation of the hatred of the good for being the good. This is the very definition of the left. They hate freedom, individual rights, freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and defenders of liberty. And they very much mean to destroy them.
“Stephen Colbert ‘Late Show’ writer: ‘I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life,'” by Gregg Re, Fox News, October 8, 2018:
In a social media post on Saturday, a writer for CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” seemingly celebrated the damage done to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s reputation during his bruising and bitterly partisan confirmation battle.
“Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life,” the writer, Ariel Dumas, posted on Twitter. Dumas later briefly made her account private, preventing others from viewing her posts without her approval.
Her tweet came as the Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a 50-48 vote, with Republicans saying that the several allegations of decades-old sexual misconduct brought against him simply lacked sufficient corroboration and credibility.
Dumas apologized on Sunday, claiming she was being “sarcastic” because Kavanaugh’s elevation to the Supreme Court demonstrated that his life had not, in fact, been entirely derailed by the accusations as some Republicans had claimed.
“Whatever happens, I’m just glad we ruined Brett Kavanaugh’s life.”
“The last couple of weeks have been hard for the country and for me personally,” Dumas wrote. “The complexity of frustration, anger and sadness can’t be accurately conveyed on twitter, and I regret my tone-deaf attempt at sarcasm in the wake of it.”
Dumas previously had quoted news analysis pieces criticizing Kavanaugh for saying the accusations had “destroyed” him, including a piece that observed, “the bar for a man’s ruin is, apparently, quite low.”
Reached for further comment by Fox News, CBS said Dumas’ apology spoke for itself. The network confirmed that Dumas currently works for Colbert’s show….
