Stephen Colbert to NRA's LaPierre: 'You Sir Are F--ked In the Head'

The indeceny of media attacks on gun rights advocates knows no bounds.

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert said of the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre Wednesday, "You, sir, are f--ked in the head" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

STEPHEN COLBERT, HOST: It's just a little too convenient to be blaming guns for gun violence, especially when the NRA has already identified the real culprits.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WAYNE LAPIERRE: Vicious, violent video games. We have blood-soaked films. Our nation's refusal to create an active national database of the mentally ill.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COLBERT: Clearly, the reason we have more gun deaths than anyone else in the industrialized world isn't the guns. It has to be that America is the only country in the world that has video games. We're the only country that has violent movies, and we're the only country with crazy people. Well, maybe not the only country, but certainly we've got the craziest people. And if you don't believe me, you don't have to take my word for it.

LAPIERRE: If it's crazy to call for putting police and armed security in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

[ Laughter ] [Cheers and applause]

COLBERT: Folks, I don't know about you folks, but I agree with Wayne LaPierre. You, sir, are f—ked [bleeped] in the head.


Honestly, is this really the level of political discourse in America today?

Are the left free to say any disgraceful thing they want about their opponents - on national television - with total impunity?

Why isn't it ever possible for our nation to have a civilized discussion about controversial issues without liberal media members personally attacking those they don't agree with?

Can such people ever just debate the issue without the vitriol and invective much as California Governor Jerry Brown and conservative talk radio host Larry Elder did Wednesday?

For over a decade, the left and their media minions have regularly complained about the toxic political tone in our nation.

Why is it they're all oblivious to their role in the toxicity?
