STOP IT! Sarah Silverman “Scared And Shaken” at The Sight of Our Flag [VIDEO]

I rarely say that I hate things, because it’s an extremely strong emotion that doesn’t have any real benefits. Other strong emotions like love, anger, sadness… they prompt you to do something. Sad? Do something that makes you happy. Love? That’s a wonderful sensation on its own. Anger? Visit the gym and assault the punching bag for an hour while you blow off steam.

But hate really doesn’t do much. That being said, there are times when someone does something so offensive, so ignorant, so mind-blowingly stupid that I can’t help but feel red-hot hatred rising in my throat like bile. It burns me from the inside out and if I didn’t know any better, I would say that flames shoot out of my ears.

Sarah Silverman is one of the few people (very, very few) that manage to wrangle this reaction out of me. Perhaps it is because she attempts to use her status as a comedian to get away with saying things that the rest of us might be publicly crucified for. Perhaps it’s because every single one of her jokes revolves around her vagina or some sort of bodily function. Perhaps it’s because she’s just SO idiotic that it is offensive that she steals my oxygen.

Take your pick. There are no wrong answers.

This wretched woman has done it again, claiming that she was “freaked out” by an ex-boyfriend who was – wait for it, this is good – “hoisting” an American flag.

“Nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews,” said Silverman’s sister. “Think about it. Flags, marching, blind allegiance. These things tend to ring a bell for us.”

How can you be scared of something that you weren’t there for? And more importantly, how can you equate someone raising a flag on their own property with “literally Hitler?” And to call raising a flag “blind allegiance” is just moronic. Perhaps he loves his country, despite the fact that his harpy ex-girlfriend is triggered by the idea of someone loving America? Oh wait, that’s right, she thinks that “because I love America” is the same thing as being a Nazi.

Because she’s dumb.

To so broadly generalize the love of country as something inherently evil is intellectually dishonest. First of all, the Nazis and Hitler didn’t necessarily love Germany, they just hated anyone they could blame for making their lives less than perfect. Americans love our country because of our fellow countrymen, our greatness, our willingness to help those in need, our charity and many, many other things. We are the greatest country on the planet because we are a good country.

If you can stomach it, her diatribe is below:
