Sarah Silverman's Insult Act Gets Old

By L. Brent Bozell · Jan. 3, 2014

Sarah Silverman celebrated Christmas in her usual mode: mocking Christians and religion in general. On Twitter, she wrote “Happy Birthday, Jesus! I'm sorry (you) were murdered by people afraid of new ideas!”

Her last HBO special in 2002 was even mockingly titled “Jesus Is Magic.” Her new special is called “We Are Miracles.” Once again, in the new show, she makes fun of the death of Jesus, as a Jew: “You're welcome. If we hadn't killed him, he wouldn't even be famous.”

Silverman then mentions Scientology as crazy, but adds, “it's no more bats–t crazy than every single religion. It's just new. Christianity is super-old, but its f—ing crazy.” Silverman turned to mocking Catholics and confession. She claimed that Hitler could kill 6 million Jews, and then go to confession and have a priest say, “'No problem. Say 10 Hail Marys,' and Hitler goes to heaven!”

She also praised the late Mother Teresa for not being obsessed with her body image, and then went for the humor by calling her “stick thin,” and adding “f—ing bitch.” Silverman and Bill Maher are religion-trashing peas in a pod for HBO. This woman lives for gags like this: “Don't forget, God can see you masturbating. But don't stop. He's almost there.”

Silverman hates how separation of church and state – which leftists always think is actually text in the Constitution – is a joke in America, since “In God We Trust” is on the money, and witnesses in court swear to tell the truth on the Bible and say “so help me God.” She sputtered, “If I tell the truth, it's because I tell the truth, not because I put my hand on a book and made a wish. It's f—ing crazy!”

The “We Are Miracles” title refers to the “science-based” miracle that “we were all once a microscopic speck,” leading to a joke she begins in her father's testicles and then flopping spectacularly into an incest joke. At least this atheist who just hosted a New York telethon for free abortions in Texas didn't attempt to reconcile her “unborn speck miracle” talk with her fist-pumping feminism. She might have pulled a mental muscle.

Silverman also unloaded a typically scabrous joke about “praying” for Republican sperm that dies inside the rear ends of prostitutes. “Surely there are Democrats that have butt sex with prostitutes, and you're 100 percent right there are, but Democrats aren't trying to take my rights away.”

Silverman spares nothing in her attempts at humor. She made up a fake study saying Sept. 11 widows are better at casual sex acts, and said she loved rape jokes because who would object? “I'd say rape victims, but they're traditionally not complainers.”

Comedians like this are too busy making a living being “hilariously” insensitive to contemplate what it's like to be on the other end of the ridicule.

At a recent roast for James Franco on Comedy Central, actor Jonah Hill unleashed on Silverman: “Sarah is a role model for every little girl out there. I mean, every little girl dreams of being a 58-year-old single stand-up comedian with no romantic prospects on the horizon. They all dream of it, but Sarah did it.” (She's 43.)

Hill then added another insult: “People say it's too late for Sarah to become successful in movies at her age. I again do not agree. It's not impossible. I mean, it's not like they're asking you to bear children or anything like that.”

Silverman admitted in a TV interview it took her several days to get over the insults. “As soon as a woman gets to an age where she has opinions, and she's vital and she's strong, she's systematically shamed into hiding under a rock. And this is by progressive pop culture people!”

She added in self-defense: “These issues always come up when an actress hits a certain age and has a voice she can use. It's not any kind of new notion. It's just new for me, you know what I mean? I love all those guys (at the Franco roast). Still, I think it was OK to admit that it cut me. We're just made of feelings.”

As if Silverman's targets don't have feelings? Like rape victims and 9/11 widows don't have a little more reason to be spared than Silverman does?

As Silverman has now announced her comedy role model for the future is half-plastic Joan Rivers, the size of her ridicule target is only going to enlarge. Why would a godless comedian refrain from insulting her for archaic religious concepts like charity, or mercy, or respect for your elders?

Some people will do anything to be famous.

I wouldn't be in her shoes on a dare, though. 30 pieces of silver, eternity in Hell, not much of a bargain.

She's nothing but a poor, pathetic, spoiled, little JAP. She probably of Sadducee descent.

What Sarah doesn't realize, because she refuses to believe it, is that the God she mocks is the One who will be her judge one day. Sadly, that will not be funny.

I don't know this Sarah but she sounds like a voice that would go unheard in the forest were it not for all the laughs and endorsements she receives from those who seem to be supportive of her profanities.
Typical of the Celeb Gropy Crowd.

To paraphrase Bill Cosby, if Silverman did her comedy routine without the profanity and vulgarity, she would be a Nobody.

Actually, she is a nobody. She just got more press from Brent than she usually does.

I'm sure silverman ( and fred in texas ) can not help but respect the fact that I would relish the news that she and Bill Maher were both killed in a single-auto car crash. I wonder how it FEELS for her to realize that so many people accept her and her types as trash that will go to a landfill instead of heaven?

Fortunately for me I never tune into people like Sarah Silverman and her ilk. It just makes it easier to ignore them. Unfortunately, far too many people do listen and think that humor like this is okay. As stated by others in the comment section here, she will face a Holy God to be judged (as we all will). I doubt He will at her pathetic jokes.

Sarah Silverman, just the thing the PANEM ET CERCENSIS crowd yearns for!

Bill Maher gets his daily prostate exam by a doctor who keeps both hands on the patient's shoulders.

Jesus forewarned us, as Christians, we would be persecuted for our belief, reviled and hated. Pray for Sarah. Even the evil Saul of Tarsus was converted by God's light.

Friday, January 3, 2014 at 11:35 AM

The Honey Badger in AZ replied:

The Lord has permitted the Jews and Levites to be persecuted by the Goyim for 2000 year. They were warned time and time again that this is what would happen because of their iniquity. Until they rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem and offer up the prescribed sacrifices in RIGHTEOUSNESS, according to the Law of Moses, that persecution will continue.

What happened to Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus would have converted anyone except Lucifer and his angels.

Let us all encourage Sarah to shift her comedy act toward all those overly religious Muslims. Boldly go for it, Ms Silverstein! I dare you!

Silverman, Rivers, Maher and most of the other Jews in the entertainment business lend credence to the idea that THE PROTOCOLS OF THE ELDERS OF ZION was not a hoax after all!

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that bill maher has a strong resembalence to a possum. The silverman girl is just white jewish trash.

Good observation, Froggy. I've always thought more like a weasel but his eyes tend to the possum theory.
He and Silverman are together, they probably like to play "Spank the Weasel" in private. And no, it ain't anything like Whack-A-Mole!

I tried to watch Sarah S on HBO but she wasn't funny. Stand up comics are supposed to make you laugh. If all she does is make her little "statements" then she's not a comic anymore than Bill Maher is.
In these dark desperate times I want the stand up comics to ease my pain and make me laugh. I already know how the politics of the left, and most of the so called right, have screwed up America.

Red Skelton, Jonathan Winters, George Gobel, Soupy Sales, Danny Kay, George Burns and Gracie Allen, The Marx Brothers, Abbott and Costello, Norm Crosby, Bill Cosby, and many others had us rolling on the aisles without one vulger or profane word. And how many of them were Jewish? Most of them!
