Censored-Banned From YouTube: Colbert on the Vindmann Smackdown of Nunes and Trump

Open disrespect for the US military by Trump, Nunes and other GOP draft dodging scum will not be tolerated


At the end of an extremely long day of impeachment hearings, Stephen Colbert kicked off his Late Show monologue by digging into the remarkable testimony of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.

“Vindman came to the United States as a child when his father fled the Soviet Union and went on to enlist in the Army, where he received a Purple Heart for his service in Iraq,” Colbert explained. “Given his history, the only way Vindman could be more all-American is if he appeared in a Ken Burns documentary about the Statue of Liberty… which he did as a child.”

After playing the clip of a young Vindman telling his family’s story in the 1985 film, Colbert added in a comically childish voice, “And when I grow up I want to be in the Army and testify about the president’s corruption in Ukraine.”

The host then aired the end of Vindman’s opening statement Tuesday morning in which he spoke directly to his father. “Dad, I’m sitting here today, in the U.S. Capitol talking to our elected professionals—is proof that you made the right decision 40 years ago to leave the Soviet Union,” he said. “Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth.”

“That is beautiful,” Colbert said in response. “That’s moving and true. But you know it’s going to really enrage Trump, because it features his two least favorite things: immigrants and fathers who love their sons.”

Later, Vindman expressed his loyalty to the United States by declaring, “Here, right matters.”

“Thank you, lieutenant colonel,” Colbert said. “Yes, in America, right matters. You know, unless you’re one of the congressmen on the right, then not so much these days.”

  1. Quote from Wikipedia article on Lt. Col. Vindman:
    “He later received a master of arts degree from Harvard University in Russian, Eastern European and Central Asian studies.[3]

    After graduating from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1998, Vindman joined the United States Army and became a career Army officer.[3] He completed the Infantry Officer Basic Course (IOBC) at Fort Benning in 1999 and deployed the next year to South Korea, where he commanded infantry and an anti-armor platoon.[3] In addition to overseas deployments to South Korea and Germany, Vindman is a combat veteran.[3] He was deployed to Iraq to take part in the Iraq War from September 2004 to September 2005.[2] In October 2004,[2] he sustained an injury from a roadside bomb in Iraq, for which he received a Purple Heart.[3] He was promoted to the rank of major in 2008,[7] and to lieutenant colonel in September 2015.[8]

    During his Army career, Vindman earned the Ranger Tab, Combat Infantryman Badge, Expert Infantryman Badge, and Parachutist Badge, as well as four Army Commendation Medals and two Defense Meritorious Service Medals.[2]” Compare this officer with the traitorous four star generals who obviously stood down and did not lift a finger to defend America on 9/11/01 and were obviously in on the con. Shame on them.
