When liberals pretend to be outraged over rape, sexual assault, racism, etc… what they really mean is it’s only bad when conservatives do these things. Case and point: racist comedian and lefty Trump-hater Sarah Silverman has decided that disgraced democrat Al Franken is innocent of the sexual misconduct that ended his political career. Don’t worry, I’m sure she still believes all of the BS allegations against President Trump.
Silverman was profiled in GQ where the former men’s magazine asked her about a sketch she did in blackface:
“I don’t stand by the blackface sketch. I’m horrified by it, and I can’t erase it. I can only be changed by it and move on. It was like, I’m playing a character, and I know this is wrong, so I can say it. I’m clearly liberal. That was such liberal-bubble stuff, where I actually thought it was dealing with racism by using racism. I don’t get joy in that anymore. It makes me feel yucky. All I can say is that I’m not that person anymore,” said Silverman.
But how would she feel about a conservative comedian (is there such a thing?) doing a sketch in blackface? I’m guessing should wouldn’t be as forgiving as she is of herself.
Silverman then went on an extended defense of comedian Louis CK who admitted to masturbating in front of several horrified women against their will, before turning her attention to Al Franken:
GQ: Did you talk to Franken after he had to resign?
Silverman: Mmm-hmm. He and [his wife] Franni are devastated. I understand that I may have cognitive distortion, because I love him so much. But all I can say is, and he may not be excited about this, but he has no sexuality. I believe in my heart of heart of hearts he never copped a feel. The sketch, the whole Leeann Tweeden sketch, is online. You can see it for yourself. It’s not funny, but it’s innocuous. He may have touched some sideboob by accident, or a tush by accident, but I’m telling you, Franni is his best friend and constant companion, and he has eyes for no one else. I’ve worked with him for years. I’m so sad that he got bullied into resigning, because all he loved in this world was being a senator and representing the people of Minnesota. I’ve never met a more pure person. On the show, you saw him kiss me on the lips. There is nothing sexual about it. He’s a Jewish grandpa. He gives you big, Jewish, wet-lipped kisses. This is a guy whose passion was serving people and making the world a better place. There’s a lot of baby-in-bathwater stuff, I think. We’ll just get it in the process.
Okay, so there’s actually a picture of Franken grabbing Leeann Tweeden’s breasts as she slept. Is it Silverman’s position that the photograph is a lie? I guess so, if she says he’s innocent.
The point of this GQ interview is that Silverman is now super-empathetic, including respecting Middle-American Trump supporters that she previously considered stupid rednecks. Just to prove her point, she had these words about President Trump:
“I would have so much compassion for Trump if he didn’t have so much power and wasn’t ruining people’s lives. But he’s super fucked-up. These guys with their daddy issues are getting people killed,” said Silverman.
“If he thought that deep, he’d kill himself. If he was two degrees more onto himself, he would eat a bullet. The lack of awareness keeps him alive. He’s such a pussy. Colossal pussy,” Silverman said.
We can now add “innocent” and “empathy” to the list of words liberals don’t understand.
