RNC 2016

Stephen Colbert Hijacks RNC Stage

I’ll be “live blogging” and live tweeting the Republican National Convention. You can check out the RNC 2016 tag here.

While interns and technicians were making preparations for this week’s Republican National Convention last night, Stephen Colbert hijacked the stage to poke fun at conservative chaos.

The comedian turned Late Show host walked onto stage dressed as Caesar Flickerman, the eccentrically dressed host from “The Hunger Games” franchise on Sunday night. Colbert grabbed the microphone and announced that Donald Trump had “formed an alliance with Indiana Governor Mike Pence” before pretending to fall asleep. “Sorry,” he wakes up, “I blacked out there for a moment.”

But Colbert’s “roast” didn’t stop at the Trump’s Vice Presidential pick. He turned to the entire party, claiming it was his “honor to launch to 2016 Republican National Hungry for Power Games!”, a clever pun in reference to the dystopian future portrayed in “The Hunger Games” and his previous joke about the amount of candidates entering the race in 2015.

A security guard quickly rushed to the stage, grabbing Colbert’s hand. “I know I’m not supposed to be up here,” Colbert shouted, trying to keep hold of the microphone, “But let’s be honest, neither is Donald Trump!”

Colbert was shooed off stage, stumbling slightly as he rushed towards the nearly empty audience in full outfit. People began laughing at Colbert’s joke as the now viral video fades to black.

From the Editor at Huffington Post: “Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.”

It’s important to realize that the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party, although he may be funny to joke about (as Colbert, John Oliver, and countless other television personas have in the past), needs to be stopped. It’s all fun and games until the “Hungry for Power Games” actually exists.

    RNC Applauds Security Longer Than They Remained Silent for Deaths

    The delegates at the Republican National Convention applauded for the security – ironically, perhaps the only men allowed to be carrying guns during the convention – for much longer than Reince Priebus’s declared “moment of silence” for the slain officers. So, a very quick, brief moment of silence is given to officers who were slain by deadly weapons. Then the men keeping the delegates at the convention safe, perhaps (almost certainly) carrying deadly weapons receive a long, loud round of applause.

    The RNC Has A Religious Message For You

    It’s embarrassing to see just how narrow the Republican establishment is making this convention. To narrowly “pray” for officer deaths and not bring up the mass shootings and diverse racial problems in America is already narrow-minded. To narrow down the nation through religious guidance, you’ve labeled your party as “The Party of The Religious”. That’s not how you make America “Great Again”. That’s how you further divide up the people of your nation. You’ve established yourself as nearing theocracy; from Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee to the inclusion of religion in a political party resorting in so-called secular nation.

    Moment of Silence for Officers, NOT Victims of Mass Shootings

    The GOP Convention is starting the way anyone could assume it would have, with chairman Reince Priebus asking for a “brief moment of silence” for specifically the “officers slain” in previous days – specifically citing Baton Rouge and Dallas. The convention basically starts with a leading Republican figure shouting out #BlueLivesMatter! How the hell are independents and Democrats supposed to hear this? It truly shows that the Republican Party is backing away from their previous stance of “All Lives Matter”, which is completely and utterly flawed in argument concepts to begin with, to enforce authoritative ideologies.
