Richard Belzer's

Trainwreck Interview

Molestation, Sodomy, Hitler

10/3/2012 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Law & Order" star Richard Belzer wasn't supposed to talk about anal sex, molestation or give the Nazi salute when he agreed to do a news interview on live TV this morning ... but he did anyway.

Belzer appeared on Fox 5 in New York for a simple friendly interview ... and when he was asked if the show's anchor could play his brother on the NBC show, Belzer took things in a totally different direction.

Female Anchor: "[The male anchor] should play [Richard's] brother on the show/"
Belzer: "If he gets molested and banged in the ass, maybe."

Belzer quickly apologized and jokingly explained, "I meant banged against a piece of furniture."

Belzer then  turns to the camera, raised his arm into the Nazi salute and told the anchors, "Say HEIL to all your colleagues at the other division."

It ain't the first time Belzer has turned to Nazi humor -- he gave the salute at a red carpet event back in June.

7:18 AM PT -- A rep for Belzer tells TMZ ... Richard's Nazi joke was a "satirical gesture toward Fox News ... whose ideology he is opposed to."

Weird, considering Belzer agreed to go on a Fox station in the first place.

The rep adds, "The other portion was a joke pertaining to the material of Richard's TV show, which he tweaked at the last minute to make about furniture. A joke is a joke."

What's really screwed up about this whole situation is that this guy is Jewish! Now is a Gentile would have done a Nazi salute on nation wide T.V. the Jewish community would be screaming bloody murder! Calling everyone and their bother an anti-semite. The fact that one of their own does something like this and there are no repercussions what so ever sends the wrong message.

So he's opposed to Fox News' ideology when Fox has more liberal guests on than CNN or MSNBC have on conservatives. Such a small man. Such a small like-minded liberal drone. This douche probably never watches Fox. He takes his marching orders from the other elite leftists in Hollywood. Let's see this Jew hating Jew spend a month in the Middle East. After he's done kissing Islamist ass they'll waste him like they do with other Jews. The only difference is Belzer deserves it.

I "got" the banged in the ass part, that would be a typical plot for his show. I did't get that the Nazi salute was a dig at FOX because neither I nor anyone I know thinks, a) That Nazi humor is funny, or b) That comparing people you disagree with to Nazis is anything less than an insult to the victims of the Nazi Regime.

Congratulations, Belzer. You singlehandedly insulted Jews, conservatives, and us REAL liberals who agree to disagree AND people like Juan Williams and Bob Beckel, liberals who work on Fox News and NEVER have their opinions censored.

Just as wacky as Dina Lohan, but even moreso.

He was sniffing like he was trying to snarf the powder further up his nose.

Is he back on the coke again?

CNN = liberal bias
MSNBC = extreme liberal bias
FOX = half conservative bias, half balanced factual news

1. The guy is Jewish. He is calling Fox a bunch of Nazi's as an insult, not compliment.

2. Fox is very anti-Jewish and pro Jesus. They do everything in their power to tarnish the image of Jews all around the world. They even state that Obama hates Israel when that couldn't be further from the truth.

i watch Rosanna and Dave every morning and I am sure they are mortified by this.. He is a disgrace. Both the anchors are good people. They are respectable and do a lot of good for the local community. This was a horrible prank. They deserve an apology and Belzer should be banned.

What a boob. He's ugly, can't really act and thinks he' funny when he's not. He comes across as out of touch. I don't think he's on drugs, just another hollyweirdo.
