Whitford Warns Colbert: Pass H.R.1 or ‘See You In The Internment Camp’

Appearing on CBS’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night, left-wing actor Bradley Whitford ranted to his fellow liberal that “we cannot get anything done if we don’t protect democracy and pass H.R.1.,” referring to federal legislation being pushed by Democrats to rig all future elections in their favor.

When Colbert harkened back to the civil rights era and asked if H.R.1 was the new Voting Rights Act, Whitford responded with:

Yes, which is composed of entirely, up until, you know, four years ago, bipartisan ideas about protecting democracy. I think Biden should have a cabinet position protecting democracy because, if we lose this, we’re in big trouble.

From his reply, it is clear he doesn’t know what he is talking about.

H.R. 1 is a bill that is laughably titled the “For the People Act of 2021.” Ironically, the issue many people have with the bill is that it gives the people less of a voice. Examples include:

  • Usurping the role of the states, wipe out basic safety protocols, and mandate a set of rules that would severely damage the integrity of elections.
  • Would mandate same-day and automatic voter registration, and encourage vote trafficking of absentee ballots. It would eviscerate state voter ID laws and limit the ability of states to verify the accuracy of their voter registration lists

Despite the facts, Whitford and Colbert continued their discussion about why America was doomed if this bill did not pass.

“Yeah, without that (H.R.1), you know, I’ll see you in the internment camp,” said Whitford. “I’ll be with the theater people and if you see me, you know, save yourself.”

“I’m trying to imagine theater internment camp,” responded Colbert. “Isn’t that just theater camp?”

“Yes, but you have an audience every night, that’s the difference,” answered Whitford.While saying if a bill won’t pass, Whitford believes he will end up in an internment camp is bizarre, the segment continued with him wildly accusing Republicans of having “stolen” two Supreme Court seats:

They stole two Supreme Court seats. I mean, negotiating with a party that worships an insurrectionist feels really close, to me, to negotiating with terrorists. I don’t understand it. If they’re going to use the filibuster to keep us from protecting Capitol Police officers, I don’t know where the common ground is to be had.

Of course, Supreme Court seats are appointed, not stolen. Apparently making unhinged false claims is what the far-left calls “protecting democracy.”

Here is a transcript of the May 27 exchange, aired early on the morning of May 28:

12:07 AM ET

BRADLEY WHITFORD: My stupid insignificant career would be over, but it’s very important to me — I just keep — it’s such a relief to have a president who wants to help people and not need smoke blown up his ass, that’s fantastic, but I worry that any — we cannot get anything done if we don’t protect democracy and pass H.R.1.

STEPHEN COLBERT: Okay, so that’s the new voting rights act?

[After they both speak, you can just do last names] WHITFORD: Yes, which is composed of entirely, up until, you know, four years ago, bipartisan ideas about protecting democracy. I think Biden should have a cabinet position protecting democracy because, if we lose this, we’re in big trouble.

COLBERT: Are you at all — by the way, I agree with you. When I was lucky enough to interview President Biden in December, I said, doesn’t that need to be the very first thing because, otherwise, nothing else that’s accomplished is meaningful at all.

WHITFORD: Yeah, without that, you know, I’ll see you in the internment camp. I’ll be with the theater people and if you see me, you know, save yourself, don’t —

COLBERT: I’m trying to imagine theater internment camp. Isn’t that just theater camp?

WHITFORD: Yes, but you have an audience every night, that’s the difference.

COLBERT: Now, are you surprised in any way that he hasn’t been able to find Republican playmates to go along with him on anything?

WHITFORD: No, I — look, Mitch — you know, they want bipartisanship? They stole two Supreme Court seats. I mean, negotiating with a party that worships an insurrectionist feels really close, to me, to negotiating with terrorists. I don’t understand it. If they’re going to use the filibuster to keep us from protecting Capitol Police officers, I don’t know where the common ground is to be had.
