Former Comedy Central and current CBS Late Night Personality Stephen Colbert used his platform to doubt the story discussed in a debate from (R) Tudor Dixon. Tudor Dixon is the Republican nominee in her Gubernatorial race in Michigan against current Gov. Whitmer. Colbert claimed that in the Oct. 25 debate, Dixon made up the claim that “I had a gentleman come up to me just a few nights ago and he said, ‘I found content in my school library describing how to have sex to my son.’” Colbert responded, “Dixon’s not the only one worried about this issue. So is this guy she totally made up.”
The Detroit Free Press stepped in after Colbert made this claim, writing: “A Dearborn resident whose existence was doubted by comedian Stephen Colbert during a monologue last week has a message for the CBS late-night host: I am real and so is my switch to the Republican Party,” Eventually, Khalil Othman stepped forward and announced he’s the man that Dixon referred to in the Oct. 25 debate, and Othman stated he mentioned this to Dixon at a recent rally she held. Othman would go on to add, “To claim that I’m not here, I don’t exist, I’m not human, that’s absolute ignorance,” adding, “If this person did his due diligence and start researching or has his team do a little bit of research of who’s this person who attended Dixon’s rally, they will be able to find my name right away easy on social media. Just Google it.”
Fox News Reports:
Othman, a father of five and a former Democratic candidate for state representative who migrated from Yemen nearly 20 years ago, had shared a video on Facebook of the comments he made at the Dixon event speaking out against sexually-explicit content found in school libraries.
“I am a proud Muslim American who expresses my values and concerns all the time,” Othman said in the video. “Dearborn has been voting Democrat blue for the last decade or two decades. But not anymore. On behalf of myself and my family, I guarantee you for sure that my family and my friends will vote for Republicans.”
Dixon knocked Colbert’s comments at an event on Sunday, telling supporters, “That’s what he said, this story never happened. That’s where the Democrats are right now. You don’t exist, your stories are not important.”
Democrats frequently avoid the issue of the inappropriate nature of books in libraries for school-aged children. When confronted with the matter, many Democrats will then claim that even if it is happening, then it’s not that big of a deal and children need to know about things of this nature. The Democratic platform has no issue with your children learning about transgender ideology and other sexual things that have been deemed inappropriate throughout all of American history, and Colbert’s decision to mock the parents as opposed to condemning the book depicting “how to have sex to my son” is especially concerning.
