    Where is the first amendment?

    How about all of the stuff he said about his Republican debate group?

    He can dish it out but he can't take it

    Trump's people. You know, the ones who hate the PC world we live in. They're the ones who complained. I'm sure of it.
    Silence means security, silence means approval.

    Wait, I thought liberals were the snowflakes who can't handle someone who disagrees with them. Hmmm...

    I haven't heard the rant but unless there is a clear violation of law with similar punishments in similar cases and sound reason for punishment, I don't care what Colbert said, I don't want to see encroachment onto 1A.

    Liberals were increasingly successful in their "Fire them!/Ban them!" mission for 8 years and continue to silence their opposition. Thought that was and is reprehensible, so if Colbert's speech is merely offensive to some and not unlawful, it's just as reprehensible to shut him up.

    In 1993, Trump's comments in a congressional hearing on Indian casinos shocked lawmakers and others.
    "Go up to Connecticut, and you look (at the Mashantucket Pequots)," Trump told the House Natural Resources Native American affairs subcommittee. "They don't look like Indians to me."
    In June 2016, then-presidential candidate Trump labeled Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts "Pocahontas" -- a reference to her claimed Indian heritage.
    "Pocahontas is at it again!" Trump wrote in a tweet. "Goofy Elizabeth Warren, one of the least productive U.S. Senators, has a nasty mouth."
    The President resurfaced the comment in Atlanta on April 28 this year, telling a crowd of National Rifle Association members that "it may be Pocahontas" pursuing the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
    The remarks were condemned by the National Council of American Indians, who in a May 3 statement called them "derogatory."
    "I'm disturbed by some comments the President has made," Sen. Tom Udall, vice chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, told CNN. "He has made some very derogatory comments about tribes. I hope Secretary Zinke encourages President Trump about the importance of self-determination, teach him about that, understand what it's all about."

    Colbert made a vile homophobic slur towards the POTUS. I am surprised people are defending him.

    Stephen Colbert responds to outcry over homophobic anti-Trump joke: “I would change a few words”

    “I’m your host Stephen Colbert,” he said. “Still? Am I still the host? I’m still the host!”

    “If you saw my monologue on Monday, you know that I was a little upset with Donald Trump for insulting a friend of mine,” Colbert went on. “So at the end of that monologue I had a few choice insults for the president in return. I don’t regret that. … I believe he can take care of himself. I have jokes; he has the launch codes. So it’s a fair fight.”

    “So while I would do it again, I would change a few words that were cruder than they needed to be,” he continued. “Now, I’m not going to repeat the phrase, but I just want to say for the record, life is short, and anyone who expresses their love for another person in their own way is to me an American hero. And I think we can all agree on that. I hope even the president and I can agree on that. Nothing else. But that.”

    I'm glad to see that you support gay people and are against homophobic slurs. I am too, I wish there were more compassionate people.

    CBS is network television. It was not cable tv or an R rated film. It is network tv, and the public airwaves. There is no excuse for vile homophobic references there.

    Those who defend Colbert are hypocrites, in my opinion.

    I stand with the First Amendment, not Colbert or his messaging. If he violated FCC regulations, then he should face penalties. We don't yet if he did. If he didn't, then he's just one more offensive loud mouth whose speech is protected.

    Maybe I watched the wrong clip... I didn't see anything worse than a lot of other stuff... Maybe I'm comparing cable to network... IDK...
