Jim Jefferies on Charlottesville: ‘Nazis are the Bad Guys – It’s Been Proven in Many Films’

John Oliver yells a lot, but isn’t actually all that funny. Jimmy Fallon gets emotional. And Bill Maher has arguably not been as tough as he could be when it comes to Prez45.

But, just ten episodes into his eponymous new Comedy Central show, Jim Jefferies has decisively risen up to meet Samantha Bee as easily the most incisive (not to mention bitingly hilarious) late night voices charged with comically interpreting America’s mind-boggling current sociopolitical reality. And last night, as ever, he cut right to the heart of the Charlottesville tragedy.

“Nazis are the bad guys,” he snarked. “It’s been proven in many films!”

He even managed to chastise his own audience. Indeed, after making it “very clear” that he condemns white supremacists (in a direct mock on Trump’s unwillingness to do so), he then screwed up his face and sneered, “Are you seriously applauding me for that?”

But most trenchantly, he addressed publicly-outed marcher Peter Cvjetanovic: “You know what I think Peter? You’re a pathetic, scared little asshole, who got online and found a community of pathetic, scared little assholes just like you.”
