Trevor Noah, the liberal host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” tackled the topic of Antifa on Thursday night, and said they were nothing more than “vegan ISIS.”
Noah featured footage of a Antifa members breaking Starbucks windows in what one member describes as a “symbolic act.” Then the comedian launched into a tirade against the loose-knit organization’s cause and methodology.
Laughing, Noah said, “Seriously, though, breaking a window is a ‘symbolic act’? You might think it’s some deep statement, but most people see that and think, ‘Great, now I’ve got to walk a whole block up to the next Starbucks.’”
“Like, who is that supposed to convince? What are you trying to do?” he asked. “It definitely doesn’t convince the Starbucks guy, the person who’s gonna be in the store cleaning up the glass, like, ‘Yeah, they made a good point about fascism. I understand what they mean. I understand it. You’ve got these Antifa members who believe that smashing s**t is all they should do,” Noah said.
