Brit Hume was accused of defending Nazis last night after he shared an article titled “The Rise of the Violent Left” by The Atlantic’s Peter Beinart:

FFS. How do you to get defending Nazis from this?!

Anyway, Sarah Silverman jumped in for some reason and added, “The violent alt left is something that was invented today by scumbags who don’t want to alienate their Nazi base”:

Well, she obviously didn’t read the entire thread or click the link. Beinart’s article was dated August 6, before Charlottesville:

Hate on Donald Trump all you want, but let’s not pretend that violent lefty protesters are just something he invented out of thin air.
