Seth Meyers has a message for media and news organizations who are partaking in the normalization of the so-called “alt right”: “get you sh*t together.”
Meyers pointed out several stories that downplayed the danger posed by white nationalists in America. Referring to a CNN headline that read, “Hipster or hate monger? The trendy young face of Austria’s far right”, Meyers asked, “How do you confuse hipsters with Nazis?”
He then quipped: “Nazis like to invade other people’s territory and turn it into a utopia for the white race–okay, okay. Now I see the confusion. But still!”
Meyers also pointed out that we don’t have to call the Alt-Right the Alt-Right simply because they prefer that name to white supremacists.
Said Meyers, “Calling Nazis and white supremacists the Alt-Right is like calling OJ Simpson a cutlery enthusiast.”
