Stephen Colbert's first night on the Late Show proved he's still every bit the left wing hack he was on Comedy Central. He spent almost six solid minutes bashing Donald Trump but not a single joke about Hillary Clinton's email scandal or crazy Socialist Bernie Sanders.
In the course of his anti-Trump routine, he even put Donald Trump's face on screen with an image of the KKK.
In he first show he plays the Trump-KKK comparison.
Like all good little liberals, Colbert fails to acknowledge that the KKK was created by Democrats.

Joe Concha of Mediaite trashed the show in a review today:
Colbert's Late Show Debut Disappoints with Average Guests, Partisan Monologue
All the hype is over. All the fanboys in the media gone. The first Late Show with Stephen Colbert is in the books. And the final grade is?
For a show that had nine months to prepare for one big night, there was something wholly unsatisfying about Colbert's debut from the Ed Sullivan theatre in New York last night. On the booking front, George Clooney is just OK, because when was the last time he did a movie that made him truly relevant, truly the biggest name Hollywood? Gravity (2013), maybe? And on the political front, the show should have found a way to book Donald Trump, but we got sleepy Jeb Bush instead.
Read the rest here.
Laura Ingraham tweeted this out last night:
Glad Colbert has shown his political leanings early. Where are the Hillary email jokes, Stevie?
The new Late Show is apparently going to be just like the old Late Show.
Democrats started the Ku Klux Klan

In the book "A Short History of Reconstruction", renowned historian, Dr. Eric Foner, revealed that the Ku Klux Klan was founded in 1866 by Democrats as a Tennessee social club. The Ku Klux Klan became a military force serving the interests of the Democratic Party, the planter class, and all those who desired the restoration of white supremacy.
The Ku Klux Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party
The Klan spread into other Southern states, launching a 'reign of terror' against Republican leaders, black and white. Over 1,000 Republicans were killed, 1,000 of whom were white.
Democrat Senator Robert Byrd was a Recruiter in the Ku Klux Klan
Democrat Senator Robert Byrd remained a Democrat until he died in 2010. He was a prominent leader in the Democrat-controlled Congress where he was honored by his fellow Democrats as the "conscience of the Senate."
Byrd was a fierce opponent of desegregating the military and complained in one letter: "I would rather die a thousand times and see old glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again than see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen of the wilds."
The relentless disparagement of Dr. King by Democrats led to his being physically assaulted and ultimately to his tragic death. In March of 1968, while referring to Dr. King's leaving Memphis, Tennessee after riots broke out where a teenager was killed, Byrd called Dr. King a "trouble-maker" who starts trouble, but runs like a coward after trouble is ignited.
A few weeks later, Dr. King returned to Memphis and was assassinated on April 4, 1968.
The Republican Party Did Not Embrace David Duke
While turning a blind eye to how the Democratic Party embraced former Democrat Senator Robert Byrd, Democrats regularly lambaste the Republican Party about David Duke, a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.
Ignored are the facts that the Republican Party never embraced Mr. Duke. When he ran for the Republican Party presidential nomination in 1992, Republican Party officials tried to block his participation.
Democrats also ignore Mr. Duke's long participation in the Democratic Party with no efforts to block him.
Below is Mr. Duke's political history in Louisiana, which has an open primary system.
Duke ran for Louisiana State Senator as a Democrat in 1975.
He ran again for the Louisiana State Senate in 1979 as a Democrat.
In 1988, he made a bid for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
Then on election day, in 1988, he had himself listed on the presidential ballot as an "Independent Populist."
After his unbroken string of losses as a Democrat and an Independent Populist, Mr. Duke decided to describe himself as a Republican, without being embraced by the Republican Party.
Then Mr. Duke ran the following races where he lost every time:
In 1989 he ran for Louisiana State Representative and lost.
In 1990, he ran for US Senator and lost.
In 1991 he ran for Governor of Louisiana and lost.
In 1992 he ran for president and lost.
In 1996 he ran for US Senator and lost.
In 1999 he ran for US Representative and lost.
The Confederate Flag and Democrats

Democrats continue to raise a ruckus about the Confederate flag. Ignored is the history of that flag and its ties to the Democratic Party. For instance, it was former Democrat Senator Ernest Hollings who put up the Confederate flag over the South Carolina state capitol when he was the governor. Shamefully, President John F. Kennedy supported Hollings and the Confederate Flag.
