Aging comedienne Sarah Silverman, one of the most unhinged Never Trumpers on social media, recently revealed that she lost a Hollywood role because of caustic humor she performed in the past when she wore blackface on a Comedy Central show.
“I recently was going to do a movie, a sweet part,” Silverman said during an appearance on “The Bill Simmons Podcast” where she and the host were discussing the current culture of extreme political correctness permeating throughout Hollywood.
“Then, at 11 p.m. the night before, they fired me because they saw a picture of me in blackface from that episode,” she added, referring to her show “The Sarah Silverman Program,” which was cancelled nearly a decade ago.
The clips from Silverman’s show in their context were a “Trading Spaces” parody of sorts where Silverman wore blackface as apart of a facetious attempt to understand the racial discrimination against African-Americans, after she said to a black waiter that she carried a heavier burden being Jewish.
Before former President Barack Hussein Obama rose to power and ushered in the woke era, this type of edgy humor was considered permissible. Now, it’s holding back Silverman’s career.
“I didn’t fight it,” Silverman told Simmons. “They hired someone else who is wonderful but who has never stuck their neck out. It was so disheartening.”
“It just made me real, real sad because I really kind of devoted my life to making it right,” she added. However, her years of apologizing for her past sins were not enough to save her.
Silverman talked about the blackface sketch during a GQ interview last year, attempting to excuse away her past of making offensive jokes.
“Comedy by nature is not at all evergreen,” she said. “So if you’re doing it right, you look back at your old stuff and you’re horrified. 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.”
She explained to Simmons how she opposes the age of political correctness and the prevalence of the outrage mob, now that she has been negatively impacted by it.
“I think it’s really scary and it’s a very odd thing that it’s invaded the left primarily and the right will mimic it,” Silverman said. “It’s like if you’re not on board, if you say the wrong thing, if you had a tweet once … everyone is, like, throwing the first stone.”
“It’s so odd,” she added. “It’s a perversion … It’s really, ‘Look how righteous I am and now I’m going to press refresh all day long to see how many likes I get in my righteousness.’”
However, Silverman’s politics are as liberal as they come. She regularly joins the outrage mob against President Donald Trump as frequently as anyone, getting off on her own “righteousness” against the President and his supporters who she hates so much.
No point in explaining how mind blowingly stupid this tweet is so I’m just gonna go with FUCK YOU, and also add that you are a smelly penis hole with balls that touch water. Eat shit, you greedy twat. https://t.co/cqUQtHWtlW

Dogwhistle reminder that these words used by our openly Nationalist President are winks to the alt right:
Soros = The Jews
Nationalist =white Nationalist

Silverman is another ironic victim of the leftist witch-hunting culture she helped to create and continues to perpetuate.
