(Video) Jon Stewart’s Beck Parody: Sesame Street’s Bert is Hitler!
March 19, 2010
(ChattahBox)— Fox News’ Glenn Beck’s off-the-wall conspiracy theories, have reached a fevered pitch of late, as he rails against Progressivism as a Marxist, Communist, Socialist, Nazism cancer and a poison that’s destroying America. And he has appointed himself the head wingnut “progressive hunter” fashioned after “Israeli Nazi hunters.” According to Beck’s nightly chalkboard rants, progressives are also “vampires” who have a “taste of blood” and will imprison people in “death camps.” With all of this comedy-gold material to work with Jon Stewart of Comedy Central, for the second time, to great hilarity, performed a parody of Glenn Beck’s nightly paranoid insanity, in which he concluded that Sesame Street’s Bert was really Adolf Hitler.
Stewart, during the March 18 edition of the Jon Stewart Show, donned a large pair of Beck-like reading glasses, complete with a chalkboard containing a swastika, as he proceeded to skewer Beck. Stewart first played a clip of a deranged wide-eyed Beck ranting against Progressivism as a terminal disease. “Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is destroying our Constitution,” declares Beck. “Progressives want to control every aspect of your life.”
Stewart responds by taking Beck’s argument all the way beyond paranoia and into crazy town, describing a Progressive government installing masturbation control chips in people’s heads:
“As a progressive I might say I think it’s a good idea for an agency to monitor pollution,” says Stewart. “But I guess what I really mean is it’s in the state’s interest that we be allowed to put a chip in your head that tells you when you can masturbate.”
“Total control,” says Stewart, imitating Beck’s unhinged vocal mannerisms. “In my America, nobody tells people when they can masturbate!”
