Far be it from liberals to practice what they preach and there is no place where this is more apparent than on late night television.
ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel joined other hosts like the vile Stephen Colbert and others by using homophobic jokes to mock political opposition and people what the Hollywood cultural elite sneers down at.
This time it was Christian business owner Jack Phillips who has become a piñata for the unhinged left ever since he refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. There was much weeping and gnashing of teeth with liberals after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Phillips that the state of Colorado’s Orwellian Civil Rights Commission had discriminated against Phillips over his religious beliefs.
After the SCOTUS ruling and because the authoritarianism of the cult of forced diversity never gives up, the state is once again persecuting Phillips and his Masterpiece cake shop; this time over refusing to bake a cake for a gender transition celebration.
It’s not enough that Phillips has to have his life destroyed and his business attacked by petty bureaucrats who would have been a perfect fit in Stalin’s Soviet Union but he is also being targeted by the celebs who serve as the mouthpieces for the Democratic party.
And Kimmel is their top megaphone who despite the left’s harping about discrimination against LGBTQ people, thought it was appropriate to mock Phillips who he all but accused of being a closeted gay man.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Kimmel: That Christian cake baker looks like a woman, and his job is gay”:
Kimmel took aim Thursday at the Christian proprietor of Masterpiece Cakeshop in Colorado. For the late-night funny man, the takeaway from Jack Phillips’ refusal to bake a cake celebrating a trans person’s transition is that the cakemaker might be gay, and that he sure looks gay.
“It’s funny because this is a guy who spends all day, every day, meticulously designing flowers out of icing. His whole life is gay, OK?” Kimmel said to laughs. “I don’t know if the wrong cake might bring that to life or what.”
The late-night host turned his attention to the shop owner’s physical appearance, adding for good measure that Phillips is “the totally straight cake baker.”
“You would think that someone who looks like the Reba McEntire’s version of Col. Sanders would be more sympathetic to gender identity issues,” the host laughed.
Just imagine if a conservative would have made an ideological foe the butt of homophobic jokes. The would have been the target of cyberbullying hate mobs demanding sponsor boycotts and possibly banned from social media platforms entirely.
But its perfectly acceptable for Kimmell to accuse a Christian businessman of being a homosexual or for Colbert to suggest that President Trump’s mouth is Vladimir Putin’s “c*ck holster.”
See the way that this works? In the minds of the left, a small business must be forced by the state to engage in practices that violate the owner’s religious beliefs but when Silicon Valley oligarchs selectively ban conservatives, it’s their right because as private businesses, they are free to discriminate as they please.
Hypocrisy is the coin of the realm on the political left.
One thing is for sure and that’s hate night late night television is no longer a place for millions of people to go to get a good laugh now that it has become a propaganda arm of the Democratic party.
It’s sad to witness how dismal the quality has become since the days when Johnny Carson appealed to all of America instead of alienating half of the potential audience. Carson was the epitome of class and he was doing The Tonight Show during the most divisive days of the 20th Century with the Vietnam War, the civil rights era and Watergate and yet he stayed above the fray and stuck to entertaining viewers. Were he alive today, Carson would be aghast at activist clowns the likes of Jimmy Kimmel.
