Hey Stephen Colbert, Maybe Don’t Dance with Mass Murderers 
The other night on the Colbert Report, Daft Punk was supposed to play. They either canceled because of a contractual obligation with the VMAs or they were never really going to play and it was an elaborate set up for an even more elaborate song and dance routine where Steven Colbert pranced from one unlikely scene to the next, cavorting with famous people while “Get Lucky” played in background. It was a mildly amusing bit of “Look at all the celebrities I know” showmanship. Until Henry Kissinger showed up. Colbert dances out of a closet, up to Kissinger’s desk, sort of dances at him for bit, and then leaves. Kissinger then calls for security. Laughter ensues. The crowd applauds.
Here’s the thing: Henry Kissinger facilitated the brutal suppression and genocide in East Timor on the part of the Indonesian army. Henry Kissinger helped bring Augusto Pinochet to power. Henry Kissinger is—at very least—partially responsible for the savage and needless murder of between 150,000 to 500,000 innocent Cambodians. Henry Kissinger is a war criminal and a monster. This all part of the public record. Steven Colbert basically put Pol Pot in a skit about Daft Punk cancelling on his show.
