Pushingback.com, Steven Colbert- Comedy, Tragedy and Stupidity Collide
Pushingback.com is the “blog” for ONDCP, the Office of National Drug Control Policy. They are a full time propaganda outlet for the War on Drugs. Unlike real blogs PB does not allow user comments. PB also rarely creates any original content. They mostly link and post to articles they see as supporting Prohibition.
I have a fairly low of opinion of Prohibition propagandists. They are humorless moral busybodies with a skill set that makes them only fit for government work.
PB reinforces my beliefs almost daily. Today’s post is a classic. Here it is, verbatim
Not much is funny about drug abuse, but Stephen Colbert takes a shot:
PB then links to this Colbert Report video with the a spokeman from the Drug Policy Alliance.
Watch the video for yourself. Then marvel at how PB thinks Colbert supports their position. Irony and humor are completely lost among bureaucratic stooges.
It is said that life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think. Prohibition would have to be included in that definition. Unfortunately for America ONDCP does neither well.
