    He is a left wing leftist and now he has citizenship. How a person who doesn't share american values could get citizenship. Such things were not possible back in the good old days of McCarthyism. America is killing itself.

    Look I think Brexit is step backward for the UK, but when Colbert is saying he's confused about the idea of intense British nationalism/patriotism, just look at relatively recent history. In 1939 (less than 100 years ago, many are still alive to remember it) the British EMPIRE (as it was called then) was a global player, with direct or de facto political and economic control of 25% of the world's population, and 30% of its land mass. That kind of intense conquer and rule mentality tends to coincide with intense nationalism, which Britain has had culturally for literally hundreds of years. It didn't evaporate over night.
