For the first time in a long while, the TV zombie that is The Daily Show got some attention from its largely moved on liberal fan base. But the attention was not positive, with everything from accusations of Nazi collusion to actual death threats being thrown out against the program. Why exactly? Because The Daily Show dared join the chorus of mainstream liberals now choosing to distance themselves from Antifa extremists as fast as they can. You can see for yourself here below the shows take on the group who they compare to a “Vegan ISIS“.
At first most of the criticism started out pretty mild all things considered, at least compared to their usual levels of insanity.
This is maybe the most pathetic thing this abomination of a show has ever done

can’t believe y’all are really using right-wing propaganda on this show and agreeing with it…..LMAO what even is this bullshit.

It didn’t take too long though for the hardcore Antifa keyboard warriors to assemble online, and as we all know by now where there is Antifa there are accusations of Nazism. The fact that The Daily Show is a long time liberal TV icon not seeming to matter one bit to these people.
This is equivalent to Nazi sympathizing.
White supremacists will see this as an opportunity to continue hate crimes & advocate genocide.

Didn’t realize Trevor Noah and TDS were also in the business of producing neo-nazis recruitment videos like this. WTF happened to y’all?

Why would Nazis watch a show run by a mixed African man? I know, it’s because you call everyone who opposes your cult a Nazi.

Antifa didn’t seem afraid to show their true Socialist/Communist colors in their outrage either.
The Daily Show and its politics are woefully unprepared to cover fascism. If you agree, get organized and #TrySocialism.

i can’t believe writers under the employ of a multi-billion dollar media corporation are bourgeoisie propagandist bootlicker scum

Spit out that sheetcake. This country has a fash infection and it will not be cured by idle contemplation. Defeating it is dirty work.

Some even cut out the complicated words, and went straight to implied threats of violence.

It should also be noted at least a few of those angered by the segment at made at least some attempt to be funny in their outrage.
trevor doesn’t like antifa because they, unlike him, can reliably land a punchline

Lets end on a more positive note however. With this voice of reason that stood out among the outraged masses.
Saying what you think is right is more important than pleasing your fanbase. Thank you trevor for being you.
