Even liberal Democrats are starting to notice leftist lunacy and some of them are just not having it!
On March 8, comedian Sarah Silverman posted an Instagram video from her podcast where she talked about how annoyed she was with her own political party. As an admitted Democrat, it’s surprising that Silverman spoke about how the “absolutist-ness” of the party is “such a turn off to me” and how she doesn’t want to be affiliated with any party at this point.
In talking about the Democratic Party, she said, “It’s so fucking elitist, you know, for something called progressive, it allows for zero progress,” calling it “righteousness porn,” and concluding, “I really, I think I don’t want to be associated with any party anymore.”
The left is constantly seeking to ride the moral high horse by claiming to protect anyone from bad ideas (ideas they don’t like), but instead they silence opposing ideas and do not allow people to think for themselves. Silverman finally noticed the hypocrisy and was bold enough to say something about it. She stated, “Every party, it comes with so much fucking baggage that no ideas can be taken at face value. And without ideas, what are we?”
She doesn’t like the firm division between being on the right or left. Since Democrats may agree with some conservative views and vice versa, Silverman thinks the all-or-nothing attitude is repressive. It’s too “absolutist.”
She continued, “You know, Republicans might hear an idea that they would totally agree with, but if it comes from AOC, then they hate it [Not exactly true] … And of course, you know, to be honest, when I hear an idea that comes from a Republican, it’s suspect to me.”
Silverman admitted that she is biased and has based her view and opinion of a given subject on whether they are within her party or not. She’s tired of it: “We all put too much shit on this stuff. We no longer are able to be a nation of ideas.”
Silverman isn’t wrong. It’s a poisonous cycle of perpetual hate. Look at all the jabs conservatives get for simply being conservative. There are cancellations daily just because a Republican opened their mouth and dared speak their mind.
It is interesting that Silverman is speaking so openly about the failures of her political party since she’s always been quite a vocal Democrat. Remember when she went topless to encourage voters to vote blue? Or when she called Trump a C**T? Even back in 2018 Silverman categorized Trump as a “dick” and a “fucking crappy president” to show her distaste for him and his affiliated party. She’s been no stranger to a facade of political opinions but now she’s had enough of the absoluteness.
Ironically, the left will probably attempt to cancel her for her middle of the road approach. She’s a liberal Democrat, no question, but she still believes in freedom. Let’s see how long this lasts.
