You have not proven that endorsing this so-called "worrisome anti-government position" was unethical, though.
Look, Colbert is a comedian. He was simply performing comedy. That's what he does. Of course nothing was going to come of it. It would take a Constitutional amendment to actually abolish the Senate, and the Senate would have to pass it with a 2/3 vote. That's sure not happening anytime soon. So how can this position be called unethical?
Is it simply that any anti-government statement is unethical, simply because it is anti-government? What other positions could be called unethical, then? Would it not be unethical to encourage a group of people to storm the Capitol building and violently attack members of Congress? That would be about as anti-government as it gets.
Oh, wait, it was a Republican ex-President that did that.
Is it anti-government to suggest that access to voting should be restricted from certain demographics in order to give one party an unfair advantage in elections? That would be unethical, then, wouldn't it?
But wait, that's the Republicans' position.
Is it anti-government to suggest that the results of an election should be overturned if it doesn't go your way? That would be unethical, then.
Oh wait, that's the Republicans' position.
