    I live in Kanab, UT and am totally agains the downsizing of the Monuments! I also volunteer in the BLM Paleo Lab and we have found new species of dinosaurs that are getting worldwide attention. This will be an economic disaster for the rual towns around the Monuments. Check out for more on how to help. Please stand up for the Monuments as he will be able to take any Public Land all across the U.S. Call your Rep and Senators to stop this! Thanks to Steve Colbert for bringing this to the nation's attention.

    This is SOOOO Wrong & on SOOOO Many Levels! And Not Sure WHY this is NOT Talked about MORE - w/ Colbert and the Gang of nitetime hosts!
    The Indian/Native Americans along with the Animals/Land continue to be Screwed Over.
    Natives and their 200 yr old Treaty [or treaties] with the US Government it seems, have been discarded.
    And yet again - the deal to keep this land for themselves, land no one wanted [ the deserts of this country ]
    .... until now?!?
    Now that something else can be Stripped from the soil, leaving the land useless and dangerous to the environment [minerals are needed in the ground] So that a Few can Profit from (and I'm sure trump gets his pockets filled too :(
    *** Please, can you help them out and donate a minimum of $5.00 [which is not much, right!] like I did [wishing it could be more], But every bit will help them to fight this......
    and try to remember they need our Voices Too!
    xxoo to them, D~

    WTF you mean we conquered multiple countries and an entire continent when whites take land something called science happens. Innovation happens. When Muslim or Africans or something take over land it becomes a hellhole with legalized slavery rampant misogyny and widespread violence. If we would've conquered the middle east there would be a happy and healthy middle east there wouldn't be brutal genocidal Warfare. We don't fight genocidal wars. Look at the native Americans genocide was never considered or it would've been done marching people across deserts and restricting the food supply isn't how you kill. If we wanted them or the jews or the Africans dead we would've shot or stabbed them all at once instead the least effective methods of killing were always employed. What if America conquered Iran and Syria? Slavery would end and we'd punish criminals and we'd build a functional society instead the locals live under slaver, violence,poverty and fear. We need to take over and throw these dictators and theocracies out of power in order to bring peace. If we rule them it would be better then them being ruled by slavers and murderous religious fanatics!

    My stance on the topic of civil war that the statues shouldnt be removed not because I like the South or some bullshit like that but they shouldnt be removed because they remind us of the crimes and of the situation back in the day.

    Stephen Colbert is an idiot fakes film clips of trump it makes it look like Trump said something different when he did not. I would like to see a debate between Stephen Colbert and Donald Trump then we'll see who the real idiot is

  • Samwise the Brave

    The audience literally started clapping right after Colbert said "give it up to the confederacy!" Shows how fucking brain dead Colbert viewers are. They just start clapping when he says something and pauses. It's hard to believe that some people actually get their news from this show. No wonder so many Americans are fucking retarded.

  • Samwise the Brave

    Oh boy Colbert just does not get it... National monuments are not ours, they are owned by the government. By reducing national monuments, more land is going back to the people. Having the government own so much land is unconstitutional! Anyone that gets their political beliefs from Colbert will end up being an intellectual dumbass.

    Wake up, people. The US government owns 90% of the land in some US states and continues to grab more. How much is enough? The land belongs to the people, not the government. Trump is giving it back to the people to be used productively. He's not stealing it.

    • thatMimosaGrove
      thatMimosaGrove Year ago

      EcchiDragon 80
      I'll cut to the chase, Ecchi. *The US FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ALREADY OWNS 65% OF ALL THE LAND IN THE STATE OF UTAH!* How much more would you like for them to own?

    • EcchiDragon 80
      EcchiDragon 80 Year ago

      +thatMimosaGrove Ah yes... "Not accessible to general public"
      because the the hiking trails, *camping grounds* , hotels and lodging they've got in the _national park/monument_ positively _screams_ "You're not wanted here!"
      And "Private citizens do a better job"? Are you fucking kidding me!? You truly are ignorant. It's been proven _time and again_ that any service run by "private citizens* i.e. companies deliver a subpar service and quality in anything from hospitals to museums to nature areas. Which is a natural consequence of "profit uber alles". And for your uninformed self, the State of Utah was _already_ running it.
      And to cap this off - What kind of private citizens do you imagine running this thing?... If you say anything else but "companies" you're either lying, or you're unbelievebly naive. And once it's in the hands of these Profit Machines (which is what companies are. Mechanisms for profit that care for _nothing_ else) what do you imagine is going to happen? If it's for example, a mining company, do you imagine that it will be acessible to the general public?
      As for United Nations that you so obviously despise, their goals of preserving unique and beautiful places so that future generations can enjoy it and protect nature... To create something _sustainable_ *isn't* in in the interest of everybody? You'd rather have a few more dollars in you pocket than more beautiful nature around you?
      Are you even capable of thinking long term!?
      Lastly. If this is so good for the Native Americans, then why are _The 5 tribes_ planning to collectively *sue* the ones doing this?

    • thatMimosaGrove
      thatMimosaGrove Year ago

      EcchiDragon 80 Yes, "locked down," as in not accessible to the general public. And the natural resources can't be touched either although they could be extracted without harming the environment. Furthermore, when the land is owned by the federal government, the cost of maintaining it is a great federal expense, straining an already stretched thin budget. By contrast, when it's owned by Utah or private citizens, THEY foot the bill and do a much better job of it in addition to allowing the public access... which once again, benefits the native Americans in the area who can hunt, fish, gather firewood in their RVs, etc. The US federal government has been gobbling up land at an alarming rate over the last few decades in accordance with the United Nations' Agenda 21 goals. I assure you this is not in the best interest of the people.

      +thatMimosaGrove Locked down?
      What the fuck are you talking about? Do you even know anything about those areas, or are you just just regurgitating rethoric from one of your "Gevurmint bad! Dere takin' ur jebs!"-buddies?
      Educate yourself about these place before you open your mouth you ignorant fuck.

    • thatMimosaGrove
      thatMimosaGrove Year ago

      Willowdove You're being ridiculous. Nothing that you're alarmed about is happening here. The land is not going to be harmed in any way. It is being opened up for people to enjoy. It belonged to the state of Utah before it was taken away just recently by the federal government and "locked down" so that almost no one, including native Americans, had access to it.

    Its interesting to see that the president of the USA was crying on monuments of Confederate State of America while taking out US National monuments. This president must be a rebirth of Jefferson Davis. Can't think of any other explanation.

    What does subscribing do for the content creator? Are their earnings based on number of views or number of subscribers? I watch Stephen Colbert's monologues, but don't want to subscribe because I dislike notifications and don't want to be notified about non-monologue videos. Does it really affect their ad revenues?

    The USA has had bad presidents before. It's had crooked ones, liars, stupid ones. But never has it had someone so prepared to take high office so low. Lies on an industrial scale, incompetence and increasingly shameless bigotry, just to prove he can get away with it. He somehow combines the worst traits of all the worst presidents and then magnifies them exponentially. He has exposed, as with other classic demagogues, the fundamental human flaw of wanting to follow someone confident and who believes in themselves, no matter what they stand for.
