Tuesday night’s broadcast of the Colbert Report featured a segment called “Tip of the Hat/Wag of the Finger” to Fox ‘News’ and non-rioting black people.
Colbert began the segment by showing a video of cable news pundits predicting race riots and saying, “We in the cable-sphere knew that if Zimmerman walked, our cities would burn!”
There have been demonstrations, but they’ve been mostly peaceful. Colbert rolled clips of the demonstrations which included a protest in which protestors sang quietly in Tallahassee, Florida.
“‘Sang quietly?” Colbert exclaimed!
“I ordered a riot and all I get is a folk festival? Stop singing ‘If I Had a Hammer’ and and start swinging one around,” Colbert ordered.
“So, a wag of my finger at non-rioting black people. You cannot set the bar at Rodney King and then give me this weak-ass sh*t!,” he said.
