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.

Megyn Kelly: 'Why I took my son out of his school'

Megyn Kelly says it's 'disgusting' what's happening with our doctors amid today's gender equality movement — and, maybe even worse — what's happening in our schools. Kelly details the question her son was asked 'weekly' in his school, leading to her decision to leave it: 'This is indoctrination. It's deeply confusing to the children, and it's wrong.'

WATCH: Biden’s Middle East Chaos: Our Dangerous Path to the Next 9/11

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

WATCH: Glenn Beck reveals SHOCKING details of stalled Afghanistan rescue efforts

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
