With 2017 winding down, Sarah Silverman is working hard to up her odds of winning the coveted “Dunce of the Year” trophy. Move over, Lena Dunham. Sarah’s making quite a case for herself. Her latest statements about the “triggering” US flag may be enough to put her over the top.
I had a boyfriend many years ago, he was my first boyfriend who had his own house, and one day I went outside to see what he was doing, and he was hoisting an American flag up the flagpole in his front yard. And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt this feeling of like, um, I felt scared – yeah, I felt scared. So I was like, ‘Uh, what are you doing?’ and he said, ‘Raising the flag,’ and I was like, ‘Why?’ and he’s like, ‘Um, because I love America?’ and I was like, ‘Right, right, of course.’ But inside I was shaken.
The sight of Old Glory is enough to shake Sarah to her core? It’s probably best for her to stay away from a Toby Keith concert. That could prove life threatening.
My sister, who knows shit because she’s a rabbi in Israel, explained to me, she was like, ‘Dude, nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews. Think about it: flags, marching, blind allegiance? These things tend to ring a bell for us.’ Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense.
Welp, there you have it folks. If you’re the type who likes America, you’re no good Nazi scum.
This is how leftists like Silverman show their love for America. By hating everything about it. “America was never great to begin with. Flags aren’t for waving. They’re kindling for a bonfire. Grab the organic marshmallows.”
Diss the land of the free all you want, lefties. The rest of us will keep on loving it.
