ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:
Outrage as US comedian mocks Asian Americans (AFP, 3/29/14)
Social media erupted in outrage and counter-attacks Friday after US comedian Stephen Colbert used language that mocked Asian Americans in what was intended as an anti-racist jibe.Colbert, who is liberal but parodies a blustery conservative on his late night talk show, took aim at the Washington Redskins football team whose name is considered offensive by many Native Americans.
Close, but he's a conservative parodying liberalism from cover.
