Richard Belzer Fights PC Hordes over Nazi Salute

Chaplin as "The Great Dictator"

Chaplin as "The Great Dictator"

“Law and Order SVU” star Richard Belzer is in hot water over what he insists was a comic homage to the late Charlie Chaplin and not, say, an expression of his fealty to the Nazi tradition.

A spokesperson for the actor told TMZ that he was in a conversation with a reporter about the Charlie Chaplin film “The Great Dictator,” and was re-enacting a scene from the movie in a pose.

Belzer tated: “My grandfather represented Israel in the UN before it was made a nation. I’m a Jewish comedian, and there’s this new thing out, it’s called satire, irony and historical reference.”

He added: “To say that a Jew can’t do that gesture as homage to Chaplin’s masterpiece ‘The Great Dictator’ is like Muslim extremists killing a cartoonist for disparaging Mohammed in his art.”

“The Great Dictator” is a comedy by Charlie Chaplin released in October 1940.
