In the latest episode of Sarah Silverman's Hulu show, "I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman,” the leftwing comedian talks about how she was left “scared” and “shaken” when a former boyfriend put up an American Flag in his front yard. Despite the title of her show, it seems that patriotism and "American exceptionalism" is too much for this leftwing snowflake to bear.
Silverman opens the show with a monologue about the time her ex-boyfriend decided to raise an American Flag outside of his house, recalling how disturbed she was by the event.
“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,” she remembered. “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. ”
Silverman said she asked him why he was putting the flag up, and he responded, “because I love America.”
“I was like, ‘Right, right, of course.’” she said. “But inside I was shaken.”
The comedian called her sister to explain what had happened, and her Rabbi sister told her that “nationalism is innately terrifying for Jews.”
“Right. Of course. Duh. It made sense,” Silverman asserted.
Silverman said later in the episode that patriotism is loving your country but nationalism is saying, ‘we’re number one,’ and is linked to xenophobia and racism.
“I fear that ‘We’re number one’ nationalism is really like an old bed buddy of racism and xenophobia,” she argued.
The leftwing has made it so that it's considered "offensive" and even "scary" to show love for one's own country. One can't even proudly hoist an American flag without "triggering" some leftwing snowflake.
In typical leftwing form, Silverman can't even explain why believing your country is "number one" is racist or xenophobic. She also can't vocalize why it was so offensive to her that her boyfriend wanted to fly the American flag in their front yard. Instead, she gets up on her privileged leftwing pedestal and turns up her nose at flag-waving Americans, acting like her reasons for being triggered by the flag are far too complex for their small minds to comprehend.
Patriots everywhere are sick of watching wealthy Hollywood left-wingers like Silverman bash the American flag before they go home to their Hollywood mansions. If the left has any hope of beating Trump in the 2020 election, they might want to get these privileged Hollywood liberals under control...
