Seth Meyers on Wednesday took the news media to task for “bending over backwards” to normalize the alt-right movement.
In a segment called “Hey!,” the Late Night host dinged the likes of CNN and The Los Angeles Times for tip-toeing around the fact that the alt-right is comprised of white supremacists. Citing their use of wacky headlines and images focused on their alleged hipster aesthetic, Meyers urged the fourth estate to take fears about the rise of white supremacy under President-elect Donald Trump seriously and to refer to those who make up the movement as Nazis.
“If it looks like a duck and talks like a duck and steps like a goose, it’s a Nazi,” he argued. “And hey, this is America, and if we’ve ever done anything we can all be proud of, it was defeating the Nazis… Calling Nazis and white supremacists the ‘alt-right’ is like calling O.J. Simpson a cutlery enthusiast.”
