Maybe We Should Just Lay Off the Nazi Jokes for the Time Being? (Except for Mel Brooks)

Comedy must be protected for sure, but do you have to know someone's medical history before making a joke? On this segment, Glenn talks with a caller about the real problem with Samantha Bee's recent joke about Nazi hair.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: Let's go to lance in Tennessee. Hello, Lance.

CALLER: Hey, how are you doing. My problem with Samantha B wasn't because she made fun of the guy because she didn't know you had cancer but stop calling your political enemies Nazis. That's not what you call people.

PAT: That's a fair point.

GLENN: That's just like a Nazi to say that, isn't it?

[Laughter]

It's a fair point but what you know? I will tell you this. You're exactly right, and I have reached into that bag --

STU: Have you?

PAT: When?

STU: When?

GLENN: I've been accused of that --

STU: Really? You? Have mentioned the word Nazi?

[Laughter]

But you're right, Glenn, I get -- the point is valid. I understand that we do vilify our opponents, and so what we talked about yesterday with the Westboro Baptist Church, it's not in the spirit of reaching across lines, I get that. But you should protect comedy, comedy's important.

GLENN: And Mel Brooks taught us Nazis are funny. You can either be afraid about Nazis, or we can laugh about Nazis. But I agree with you, and it especially tickles me that the left made fun of me for always talking about Nazis with the chalkboard when I was doing serious analysis between the two and now they're just, like, haircut. Nazi.

But Stu brought up the Westboro Baptist Church lady. Here's one lady who left the Westboro Baptist Church is and she said, look, there's four things that everybody should know and this is why I left.

If you can approach somebody who you think is really misguided, and you can -- you don't assume bad intent. Number one. What are we doing? We just assumed the other side has bad intent. Sometimes they do.

Number two. Ask honest questions. Don't try to ask the questions that are going to set you up for your point. Really and honest questions.

Three. Stay calm.

And number four, make the argument. You need to read this article on GlennBeck.com. Four steps to break down walls from a former Westboro Baptist Church member. What got her out of the church and while you're there, we have to get this, Stu. Five ways from The Walking Dead just like Uncle Sam. And it's true. Look for the wire baseball bat in Washington soon.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
