Colbert Mocks Breitbart: You’d Think They’d Love An Orange Cartoon Who Makes Things Grrrreat [VIDEO]

Via Raw Story:

grreatSince the election, Colbert noted that there has been a lot of scrutiny on the alt-right news blog Breitbart, or as Colbert joked Breitbart.white. “Critics say the site is a hotbed of racist, sexist and anti-semitic views while supporters say exactly the same thing,” Colbert joked.

After a lot of backlash, Kellogg’s announced they’d be pulling their ads from the site because it doesn’t align with their values. “Really is there the maker of Frosted Flakes doesn’t agree with Breitbart? You think they’d love a bright orange cartoon who promises to make the country grrrrrreat!” Colbert said with gusto.

Colbert said that in response to the company pulling their ads, Breitbart said that they were “sorry to see a valued advertiser go and would work to try to repair the relationship in the future. Just kidding!” Colbert laughed. “They actually published this article title, ‘#DumpKellogg’s: Breakfast brand blacklists Breitbart, declares hate for 45,000,000 readers’ and went on to say ‘if you serve Kellogg’s products to your family, you are serving up bigotry at your breakfast table.’”

    I suppose I just ate a bowl of snap, crackle and pop “bigotry” for breakfast.

    • Xiao Ai

      Better than a bowl of Breitbarf Nutz!

    • Clive Johnson

      “Bannon flakes” – oh, that’s right, they’re already writing for breitbart.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Damn that free market systems that allows corporations to make their own decisions! I forgot, what is that system of government where government and corporations are aligned and business operate under government control?

    • William

      Putinism.

    • Gigi

      They had no problem banning me the first time I went there.

      • Bj Lincoln

        I’ve been banned from so many sites I can’t remember if they are one of them.

        • Gigi

          You little rabble rouser you!

          • Bj Lincoln

            :)

        • Xiao Ai

          Well done! You’re doing your job then. 😉

      • Nowhereman

        A badge of honor!

    • Xiao Ai

      Corporatism.

    • MonochromeMouse

      Refuse to advertise on my white nationalist tabloid will you, that’s economic terrorism you terrorist bigot cuck. /s

      • Bj Lincoln

        How is that word pronounced? Why is it supposed to mean? Just seems stupid.

        • Earl

          It is stupid, the neonazis came up with it. What else could it be but stupid.

          I think it’s partly a derivative of cuckold. They seem to think there’s a relation somehow.

          • SoCalGal20

            It’s short for “cuckservative”, portmanteau of cuckold and conservative, their derisive name for conservatives they consider sellouts or not conservative enough.

          • Earl

            So, they’re thinking the conservatives were cuckolded by the liberals? Or something like that?

            Mon dieu.

          • SoCalGal20

            I guess? I mean, they’re racists and xenophobes. I suppose anything approaching compromise or acceptance of anything they label as PC or “Liberal” is considered cuckolded by them.

          • Earl

            It’s been a long time since I’ve actually talked online with one of their avatars. Usenet was long ago, and a bit more civilized than the neonazis of today; they had to be able to read (sortof) and be able to type. They didn’t have the evil graphics (memes) that they’ve got today.

          • Nowhereman

            They have no clue. But to be in the neo-nazi racist club, you have to have cool and esoteric jargon…

          • Earl

            I really should try to avoid reasoning about the unreasonable…

          • Nowhereman

            I think in their minds (?) it means “race traitor”. What a weird concept–race treason.

          • Earl

            I’ve been proudly guilty of that for years. :)

          • Nowhereman

            Me too.

        • Acronym Jim

          I have been pronouncing it with a short “u” sound, mostly because it makes the people who intersperse their conversations with it sound like chickens.

          • Robincho

            Rhymes with f*ck and s*ck and Daffy D*ck…

        • MonochromeMouse

          “cuck”? It’s short for cuckold meaning a man who’s wife is secretly cheating on him, it entered into the alt-right/far-right lexicon by it’s niche porn category involving white women having sex with black men while a white man watches and acts upset.

          • Bj Lincoln

            Thanks for all the info..

          • Skeptical_Inquirer

            They need to stop talking about their sex fantasies and projecting it unto others.

          • juanjo54

            It does tell you two things about the far right retards. First they watch porn a lot, Second they are obsessed with porn in which Black men are having sex with White women.

          • Nowhereman

            They also are obsessed with gay male sex. Go figure.

        • agcons

          It’s a real puzzle to me. In order for insults to have any sting or any other effect, they need to be meaningful to the person hearing them, right?

          They seem to think it’s something really awful for us. All I can hear is Beavis and Butthead laughing.

    • David Walker

      Damn that first amendment making it possible for Colbert to talk to ‘murka like that.

  • Jmdintpa

    I’m having a bowl of sugar coated bigot flakes as we speak THEY’RE GREAT

  • Stephen Elliot Phillips

    Why doesnt buttbart make their own cereal. The box can be emblazoned with a swastika and the grains grown exclusively in industrial waste sites of russia…….

  • Dramphooey

    “Serving up bigotry:” if you want to know what scum is doing simply observe their accusations of others.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Sorta OT: ISU4Trump has invited Milo Fucktopulous to speak at Iowa State University next week.However, the university says they need to come up with $2,000 for extra security. The group says that if ISU doesn’t change it’s mine, they will have to disinvite the freak. Sad.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Milo should go back to london. Shes not even a Merikan.

      • Homo Erectus

        Furiner sounding name – deport him.

      • greenmanTN

        Preferably via catapult.

        • agcons

          Now really, there’s no catapult powerful enough to launch him all the way across the Atlan . . . oh, I get it. Cool.

          • greenmanTN

            I don’t care if he makes it all the way so long as there isn’t an air mattress or any other cushion there when he lands.

          • McSwagg

            Aim for Bermuda in the middle of the North Atlantic. It’s a British Commonwealth nation. He’ll still need to swim a fair bit.

    • ColdCountry

      You put a smile on my face. Thanks!

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        I do what I can !

    • olandp

      I know it is terribly PC, and PC is supposed to be dead, but I think we should address people they way they wish to be labeled. It is “faggot Milo…”

  • Gigi

    If Breitbart has a problem with those who serve up bigotry they need to shut down. Now.

  • HZ81

    Make America Great Again and keep jobs here—but let’s shut down Kellogg’s and get thousands fired because our racist glass ego took a hit. Sounds about right.

    • Dee

      Snowflakes. That’s why Breitbart is breeding. Snowflakes for Trump the princess snowflake.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    What is that 45 million readers stat based on?

    • Bj Lincoln

      Every click since they first started including those who were ‘click baited’ with a stupid headline and those of us who went to see the zoo of freaks who comment.

    • Chucktech

      Polite company would say it’s based on a mendacity. I say it’s based on a bald faced lie.

      • Acronym Jim

        A clean-shaven mendacity, if you will.

    • Paula

      Imaginary friends.

      • greenmanTN

        Same people who are members of the One Million Moms, who are the invisible friends of the actual six-pack of hysterical harpies.

    • ChrisMorley

      Total visitors per month; so 1.5m a day max.
      US population is 320m.

    • Homo Erectus

      Just like Trump’s taxes, they’ll never show you the figures.

    • Rt1583

      Probably multiple page view counts generated by stupid readers going back to read the same thing again in an attempt to understand what they’ve read.

  • we’re still here

    Support Kelloggs. Don’t be a Breitbart Cereal Killer.

    • Bj Lincoln

      I did buy 2 boxes of Frosted Flakes yesterday much to the delight of my family.

      • TuuxKabin

        And your dentist. /s ;-o

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    Gee, for a group that claims liberals are thinned skin “special snowflakes” the neo-nazis sure are a bunch of whiny little bitches.

    • KnownDonorDad

      A number of them are MRAs, too, who are the biggest crybaby wusses on the planet.

  • Robincho

    Fun Fact: The guy who was Tony’s voice for 50 years was also the voice of Stewpot in South Pacific’s “There Ain’t Nothin’ Like a Dame”…

    • ByronK

      I knew the guy who did it for a while. Then he was charged with child porn :(

      • Robincho

        Would you say his voice sounded like a, um, Subway?…

        • ByronK

          No. Just another drop in the deplorable bucket. Traumatized everyone who knew him. As usual, the last person you’d ever suspect…

  • greenmanTN

    I truly love Colbert. It was what, 10 years ago I think, but his performance at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner (when GW Bush was Pres) still sticks in my mind. It wasn’t comedy, it was a brutal take-down of both Bush and the media for not doing their job to report on what was wrong with Bush. And he did it standing just a few feet away from the President of the United States. That took guts.

    • juanjo54

      I remember that event. Laura was not happy. Neither was George later after she explained it to him.

      • kareemachan

        Hey, he’s still figuring it out….

  • juanjo54

    Because freedom of speech only applies to bigots, not those who don’t like them.

  • Nowhereman

    Racists are incredibly stupid. Calling out racism and racists does not make you a bigot yourself. That’s like claiming that calling someone who is a liar and a thief a liar and a thief makes you a liar and a thief.

  • Nic Peterson

    Trump supporters can’t afford the brand name cereal anyway. They tend to prefer the sugar coated sawdust from Jina in the five pound bag that they buy at Satan’s store.

    As it happens, there’s a furry convention going on right now in Chicago.

    That’s my excuse for posting this:
