Calling it an “anti-LGBT hate group,” liberal talk-sow host Stephen Colbert made insulting remarks about Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, during his Friday night opening monologue for “The Late Show.”
Colbert was interested in the fact that Sessions gave a speech during an ADF meeting this week, at a closed-door event, leading Colbert to cleverly quip, “A closed-door speech? Come on, guys. It’s 2017 — it’s OK to come out!” He then gleefully declared, “Let your hate flag fly! You’re here, you fear, we’re used to it.”
Colbert began his remarks by calling Sessions, “an imp who get’s your first born if you don’t guess his name.”
He then outlined ADF’s efforts to create legislation around transgender restroom issues, and for defending the Denver bakery that declined to make a same-sex wedding cake. As a Christian organization, the firm also takes a stance against gay marriage, drawing more ire from Colbert, who said ADF backs “no cake for gay couples, no bathrooms for transgender people, and bi-sexual’s may not use shampoo and conditioner in the same bottle, gotta pick a side.”
He goes on to disparage the bible in a blasphemous manner, saying, “It’s in the Bible someplace. Leviticus. Leviticus is a very safe bet. Whoever wrote Leviticus was an uptight… let me just say that.”
While he’d never heard Session’s speech, Colbert used a Keebler elf cookie to “stand-in” for Sessions as he speculated about what was said. In a high pitched voice, Colbert said:
“I am positively flabbergasted by the amount of homosexualizing I seen in our country these dark days. We must return our culture to what God intended — men marrying women, having marital relations just for reproduction — lights off, socks on, finishing with a firm handshake.”
Colbert’s degrading commentary and behavior has become typical, as the late night host frequently attacks the president and his administration, even going so far as to make a lewd allusion to a sexual relationship between Trump and Russian President Vladamir Putin.
