Stephen Colbert doubted existence of man Tudor Dixon cited in debate — but he's real
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.
On "The Late Show," Colbert said a person described by Tudor Dixon during a debate last week with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer must have been "totally made up" by the GOP nominee for governor. He was skeptical of her story that a Michigan man approached her complaining of an inappropriate book he found in a school library after failing to find help from Democrats, saying sarcastically: "That happened."
But the man, Khalil Othman, told the Free Press he is an actual person and did attend the Dixon campaign rally she referred to.
"To claim that I'm not here, I don't exist, I'm not human, that's absolute ignorance," Othman, 41, a father of five and former Dearborn city council candidate, told the Free Press. "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."...
On Oct. 21, Othman attended a rally for Dixon in Flat Rock in which he declared to the crowd he's now a Republican, posting a video on Facebook of his remarks later that night.
"My name is Khalil Othman. I came all the way from Dearborn, Michigan," he said to loud applause. "I'm here along with two parents, concerned parents ... against these sexually explicit books."
Othman has been one of many people in Dearborn attending protests in recent weeks against several books in the libraries of Dearborn public schools. The school district has removed six books so far, several of them with LGBTQ themes.
"I am a proud Muslim American who expresses my values and concerns all the time," Othman said in Flat Rock. "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."
"Never once did I ever vote Republican," he wrote. "However, the situation with the sexually explicit material in the schools was for me a bridge too far. When it comes to my kids and my family, I will not budge."
These are bits and pieces from only about the first half of the article.
The Dems have become the party that will tolerate no dissent from outrageous social issues positions that include support for taxpayer funded abortion up to the moment of delivery, radical LGBT rights including support for the right to public schools to encourage young students to fiddle with their gender, the teaching of CRT and supporting the inclusion of sexually explicit, and pro-gay material in elementary school libraries without parental input...
...and the absolute intolerance to any opposing views that Colbert expressed.
You probably remember pb was a prolife Dem from age 18 until about eight years ago and left only left when intolerance in the party because unbearable.
The truth is that the rapidly growing Muslim community in the US agrees with evangelicals like pb on virtually every social issue. Expect that view to form into a powerful voting block that will rival the Moral Majority in the 1980s.
pb can see a path that could could result in the death of the Dem party...unless it repents of it radicalism and intolerance.
