Propagandist Reid had shared a CNN headline which read, “DeSantis proposes a new civilian military force in Florida that he would control,” and commented, “So… y’all know this is fascisty bananas, right…?” She neglected to mention that there are already 22 other states in the Union to have such an organization.
Silverman replied to Reid, stating, “Please read the article before you post this stuff you’re a news outlet. The truth has to matter.” Not to Reid, it doesn’t.
This sparked vicious blowback from leftists for Silverman’s purported racism in daring to call out a black woman. Silverman took to her podcast to respond to the issue.
“We’re so divided, we can’t even criticize the people [on] our own side,” the actress continued. “We can’t even critique anyone in your own party without punishment. One of the hosts of The View was like, ‘What hubris for Sarah Silverman to accuse a black woman of not reading,’ Oy! Jesus H, What the — I fucking, I surrender! Good grief. I don’t want any trouble.”
“I cannot believe I need to say this, but I did not criticize Joy Ann because she’s black, but because she’s a Harvard-educated journalist with the responsibility, ideally, of showing the whole picture and not just a piece of a picture,” the actress insisted.
“And good grief, you dare criticize anything in your own party, you’re the enemy,” Silverman continued. “And that kind of black and white thinking on both sides — it’s such a turn-off to me, that ‘you’re either with us or against us’ kind of vibe with no room for questions or critique — it feels very not liberal to me.”
It’s not liberal — it’s progressive, and it is the totalitarian progressives who run your party now, Ms. Silverman.
