In other words, some conservatives are having a difficult time taking the joke as Stephen Colbert continues to sharpen his skills.
…ex-Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro accuses Colbert of “political blackface.”
Shapiro, who now works for something called “Truth Revolt,” writes:
This routine, in which Colbert plays at conservatism in order to portray it as unendingly ugly, should be labeled for what it is: vile political blackface. When Colbert plays “Colbert,” it’s not mere mockery or satire or spoof. It’s something far nastier.
Or maybe it’s just too close to home.
