Look out, Janeane Garofalo, someone’s gunning for your crown as the goofiest liberal celebrity.
Comedian Sarah Silverman didn’t start out as a politically charged stand-up. But lately she seems eager to shift her shtick from the pretty girl who talks dirty to the comedian eager to carry water for the erroneous Left.
Silverman recently appeared on MSNBC’s ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ to promote ‘Live from [N-Word]head,’ a comedy show meant to mock Texas Gov. Rick Perry for his scandalous ranch connection. Too bad nobody told Silverman the charge has already been debunked and is simply part of the mainstream media’s attempt to discredit yet another Republican.
Here’s Silverman pontificating on the importance of keeping the racist meme alive:
“I think that any time racism shows itself in a tangible way, it’s not just a gas in the air, it’s important to take the opportunity to point at it,” Silverman said. “You know? I think it’s dangerous when it just kind of goes away and, you know, here’s a guy who is a governor and running for president and it has not injured him in any way really.”
But the real culprit for letting the faux racist charge die is … wait for it … the media, according to Silverman.
“I partially blame the media actually,” Silverman said. “I mean, Rachel, I am not – I have no religion, but am I crazy – I miss – I kind of miss – I miss the Jew-run banks and media. I think that wouldn’t have been let go so fast.”
You’ve been served, Garofalo.
