Glenn Beck has proved to be an endless goldmine for ‘The Daily Show,’ and last night was no exception as Lewis Black let loose an epic rant against the Fox News host, condemning his ability to tenuously relate all news to Nazi’s.
Black’s diagnosis? “Glenn Beck has Nazi Tourette’s” he seethed. (This coming a few weeks off of Jon Stewart’s gospel choir-backed outburst calling Fox News the “Lupus of News.”)
Black, sparked by Beck’s shock at the outrage expressed by Arizona immigration law opponents – Beck joked: “Arizona sure is putting the ‘az’ in Nazi’” – launched into a six-minute tirade, saying of Beck: “This is a guy who uses more swastika props and video of the Nuremberg rallies than the History Channel.”
Supported by a clip by clip analysis of the offending party’s antics, Black ended the piece with a direct order for Beck: “Glenn, the Nazi’s are everywhere, and you’re not safe. So here’s what you do, and take it from me – my people have been through this before: First, you gotta find an attic. Then, hide there for the next three years. And whatever you do, don’t make a sound. We’ll let you know when it’s safe to come out.”
