The host of “Late Night” on NBC attacked that alt-right on his show Wednesday. Seth Meyers said, “Since the election of Donald Trump and the ascension of his right-hand man, Steve Bannon, there have been fears about the rise of white supremacy, ” And Meyers slammed the media adding, “Yet the media seems to be bending over backwards to normalize the so-called alt-right movement.”
And Seth Meyers says that its time for the media to just speak the plane truth already and call out Nazis when they see them for what they are.
“Hey media! What are you doing?” Meyers continued. “How do you confuse hipsters with Nazis? Nazis like to invade other people’s territory and turn it into a utopia for the white race, whereas hipsters…” At that point Meyers admitted they might be onto something. But still!”
“This is America! And if we’ve ever done anything we can all be proud of, it was defeating the Nazis, ” added Seth Meyers. “Get your shit together, media! Calling Nazis and white supremacists the alt-right is like calling O.J. Simpson a cutlery enthusiast.”
