Stephen presents the dramatic conclusion of his Occupy Wall Street co-occupation. (7:35)

FOR YOU TO SIGN ON THE WAY OUT.

FOLKS, EVERYBODY KNOWS IT IS DAY

46 OF OKAY PAY WALL STREET AND

IT IS A DISORGANIZED MESS.

I MEAN THINK OF IT.

AT THIS POINT, THE TEA PARTY

ALREADY HAD THEIR OWN NEWS

NETWORK.

THEY HAD THE BACKING OF FORMER

REPUBLICAN MAJORITY LEADER DICK

ARMEY AND HIS POLITICAL ACTION

COMMITTEE FREEDOM WORKS.

HE FUNNELED SO MUCH CASH TO THE

TEA PARTYERS THAT THEY WERE ABLE

TO UPGRADE THEIR TRICORN HATS TO

QUAD CORN.

AND SOON THE TEA PARTY BECAME

DICK ARMEY'S DICK ARMEY.

WELL, I DON'T SEE ANY REASON WHY

WE IN THE COLBERT SUPERPAC CAN'T

BECOME PLAYAS WITH THE WALL

STREET OCCUPYYAS BY THROWING OUR

CASH AROUND.

SO RECENTLY I WENT DOWN THERE TO

MAKE THEM AN OFFER I COULDN'T

REFUSE.

LAST NIGHT I SHOWED YOU PART

ONE.

TONIGHT, IN A SURPRISE TWIST,

PART TWO.

(LAUGHTER)

JIM?

>> PREVIOUSLY ON STEPHEN COLBERT

OCCUPIES OCCUPY WALL STREET.

I WENT DEEP UNDERCOVER IN

ZUCOTTI PARK AND I MET TWO YOUNG

REBELS-- JUSTIN AND KETCHUP.

I INVITED THEM TO MY PENTHOUSE

SUITE AND OFFERED TO CO-OPT THE

MOVEMENT FOR THEIR OWN

WELL-BEING.

(LAUGHTER)

I WORRY ABOUT YOU ESPECIALLY,

JUSTIN.

KETCHUP CAN TAKE CARE OF

HERSELF.

SHE'S TOUGH.

I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT KETCHUP.

SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE CAN TAKE SOME

PUNISHMENT.

YOU, JUSTIN, YOU I'M WORRY

ABOUT.

YOU'RE FRAGILE.

LET ME BE YOUR SUGAR DADDY.

AND NOW DRAMATIC CONCLUSION OF

MY CO-OCCUPATION.

YOU HAVE SOMETHING I WANT.

I'LL BE OPEN.

YOU HAVE A MOVEMENT.

I WANTED IN ON THE TEA PARTY BUT

I DRAGGED MY FEET AND DICK ARMEY

JUMPED ON IT WITH FREEDOM WORKS

AND I FEEL LIKE A TOOL FOR NOT

GETTING A PIECE OF THAT.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

WHATEVER WHATEVER IT IS, ANY

BOOTS ON THE GROUND ON THIS ONE?

>> I DON'T THINK WE CAN GIVE

THAT TO YOU, STEPHEN.

>> Stephen: YOU'RE NOT GOING TO

GIVE IT TO ME, I'M GOING TO PAY

FOR IT.

>> IT'S NOT ABOUT YOUR MONEY.

IT'S ABOUT THE THING WE'RE

TRYING TO BUILD HERE AND IT

DOESN'T REQUIRE YOUR SUPERPAC

MONEY.

>> Stephen: EXCUSE ME, I'M

SORRY.

OH, HEY, COME ON IN.

HEY, EVERYBODY, THIS IS YOSHI.

SHE WIESE THE SUPERPAC AND SHE'S

SHE'S OUR MASSEUSE.

THIS IS JUSTIN AND THIS IS

KETCHUP.

OR CATSU IN YOUR LANGUAGE.

HOW DOES THAT FEEL?

>> IT FEELS GOOD, I GUESS.

>> Stephen: TELL ME ABOUT SOME

OF THE POPULAR DISCONTENT THAT

YOU'VE HEARD THE PEOPLE ON THE

STREET ARE FEELING.

>> JUST A LOT OF FRUSTRATION, A

LOT OF ANGER.

>> WHAT DO YOU THINK THE

GREATEST REMEDY FOR THIS ANGER

IS?

KETCHUP?

>> WHAT DO I THINK THE REMEDY

IS?

>> Stephen: YOSHI.

>> I THINK WE NEED TO START--

(LAUGHS)

I THINK WE NEED TO START FROM

THE GROUND....

>> Stephen: DOES THAT FEEL GOOD?

>> IT DOES.

THAT WE NEED TO START FROM THE

GROUND UP.

>> Stephen: I'M JUST SAYING LET

THE SUPERPAC HELP YOU AND THIS

IS HOW WE'RE ROLLING ALL THE

TIME.

POPPING THE CHAMPAGNE, YOSHI'S

ON THE JET.

THIS TIME TOMORROW YOU COULD BE

HAVING A MASSAGE IN LONDON

TALKING ABOUT THE DOWNTRODDEN.

FROM UP HERE, YOU KNOW WHAT I

MEAN?

YOU CAN SEE EVERYTHING.

>> WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, STEPHEN

I THINK WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO GET

OUR MESSAGE OUT PRETTY WELL ON

OUR OWN SO FAR.

>> Stephen:.

THANK YOU, YOSHI.

THANK YOU.

>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

>> THANK YOU.

>>.

>> Stephen: (SPEAKS JAPANESE)

CAN WE GET REAL FOR A SECOND?

I'M OFFERING YOU MY SHOW TO PUMP

THE MESSAGE.

OBVIOUSLY WE WANT TO, YOU KNOW,

JUST TWEAK IT.

I EVEN MADE UP A SIGN FOR YOU.

"CORPORATIONS ARE NOT PEOPLE."

THAT'S A SIGN, RIGHT?

YOU BELIEVE IN THAT?

>> I BELIEVE THAT.

>> Stephen: OKAY, LET'S JUST

TWEAK IT.

CORPORATIONS ARE... ARE NOW

PEOPLE.

>> IT'S NOT A TWEAK, THOUGH.

THAT'S A BIG IMPORTANT CHANGE.

>> Stephen: BUT THE SUPREME

COURT HAS RULED THE CORPORATIONS

ARE PEOPLE.

THEREFORE THEY ARE.

AND YOU SAYING THEY'RE NOT IS

DEHUMANIZING.

SEE HOW YOU'RE THE MONOER?

>> THEY'RE JUST NOT PEOPLE.

>> Stephen: IT JUST SEEMS PRETTY

RACIST OF YOU TO SAY, OH,

CERTAIN PEOPLE DON'T GET TO BE

PEOPLE.

A CORPORATION OWNS WHAT YOU'RE

PARK THAT YOU'RE ON RIGHT NOW.

>> WELL, THE THING THAT OWNS THE

PARK....

>> Stephen: YOU UNDERSTAND HOW

UGLY THAT SIGNS?

HEY, BOY, WHERE'S MY SHRIMP?

>> I THINK WE'RE MOVING AWAY

FROM THE AGENDA ITEM.

>> Stephen: THE AGENDA ITEM IS

SHE'S A RACIST.

WHY NOT LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD

BY GETTING SOME MONEY OF YOUR

OWN!

YOU'VE GOT TO FIGHT FIRE WITH

FIRE.

THAT'S JESUS.

>> THAT'S NOT SOMETHING JESUS

SAID.

>> Stephen: JESUS SAID FIGHT

FIRE WITH FIRE.

HE ALSO SAID MONEY TALKS, BULL

(BLEEP) WALKS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> WE'VE HAD LOTS OF LARGE

DONATIONS AND PROBABLY WILL

CONTINUE TO HAVE LARGE DONATIONS

BUT THAT DOES NOT GIVE THE

PERSON WHO DONATES IT ANY SORT

OF SWAY OR INFLUENCE.

>> Stephen: RIGHT.

BECAUSE WHAT I'M SAYING IS I

UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE VALUES.

AND I'M WILLING TO WORK AROUND

THOSE.

>> YOU CAN'T WORK AROUND THE

VALUES.

>> Stephen: WELL, DOES THAT EVEN

CHANGE THE MESSAGE?

LET'S KEEP THE MESSAGE.

CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE,

CORPORATIONS AREN'T PEOPLE.

WHO GIVES A FLYING FIG LEAF.

>> I DO.

>> Stephen: I KNOW YOU DO AND I

BELIEVE IN THAT.

AND SO DOES MY MONEY.

>> WE DON'T WANT YOUR MONEY.

>> FINE, I'M GOING TO TALK ABOUT

A FEW MOVEMENTS THAT ALSO DIDN'T

WANT ANY CORPORATE BACKING.

TELL ME IF YOU'VE EVER HEARD OF

THEM.

YOU EVER HEARD OF THE LEFTY

LUCYS?

OR THE MILLION MAN MAMBO?

YOU EVER HEARD ABOUT THEM

>> NO.

>> Stephen: BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T

HAVE ANY MONEY BACKING THEM.

MILLIONS COULD HAVE MARCHED ON

WASHINGTON TWO YEARS AGO, MAMBO

DOWN THE MALL, YOU'VE NEVER

HEARD ABOUT IT.

>> IT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

>> Stephen: AS FAR AS YOU KNOW

IT DIDN'T.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CHANGING THE

WORLD.

LET'S CHANGE THE WORLD.

LET'S IT THIS GROUND.

LET'S DO THIS THING.

LET'S DANCE ON THE EDGE OF A

KNIFE.

>> THE PROBLEM....

>> Stephen: LET'S LIVE

DANGEROUSLY.

LET'S GET INTO IT.

LET'S STRAP ON AND GET ON TOP.

TOP OF OUR GAME.

GET THE MESSAGE OUT THERE.

LET'S BE EMPOWERED.

LET'S LET THE LITTLE MAN

RECOVERY!

I'M A BIG MAN WHO'S GOING TO

HELP YOU DO THAT.

>> WE'RE NOT TRYING TO RECREATE

THE PROBLEMS THAT ALREADY EXIST.

ONE OF THE PROBLEMS IS THE

UNDERINFLUENCE OF MONEY IN

POLITICS SO FOR US TO ACCEPT

LARGE DONATIONS FROM YOU OR

ANYBODY WOULD BE CREATING THAT

PROBLEM.

>> Stephen: I WAS MAN ENOUGH TO

KNOW WHEN I'D BEEN BEATEN.

THE REVOLUTION WOULD NOT BE

TELEVISED.

KETCHUP, JUSTIN, I KNOW YOU GUYS

HAVE TO GET BACK TO THE

REVOLUTION.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TALKING TO

ME.

>> THANK YOU.

THANKS, STEPHEN.

>> THANK YOU.

>> Stephen: NO, SERIOUS.

THAT'S YOUR MONEY.

>> NO, NO.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: SO WILL THEY TAKE ME

UP ON MY SNAUFR SINCE THAT

INTERVIEW, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REPORTS THE GROUP HAS RAISED

OVER

$450,000.

SO WHO GAVE THEM THAT MONEY?

HERE'S A LITTLE HINT.

HE'S GOT TWO THUMBS AND SO DO I.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
