Skip to comments.Bozell Column: Sarah Silverman's Insult Act Gets Old
Posted on 01/04/2014 10:56:10 AM PST by Kaslin
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 was called We Are Miracles. Once again in the new show, she made fun of the death of Jesus, as a Jew: Youre welcome. If we hadnt killed him, he wouldnt even be famous.

I wonder if we could find some recent converts from Islam to go after her...
40 year old women that still acts like an goofy adolescent, but really is bitter middle aged leftist that absolutely worships Obama.
A complete has been that just trolls on social media all day.
Sarah Silverman has been treated for mental problems. I wish she would get further help, as clearly she needs it.
And not to hate on those with mental issues. I think that Sarah Silverman is an example of how we celebrate liberalism and outrageous behavior nowadays. If she were conservative shooting off her mouth about such subjects, she would have gotten the Paula Deen treatment and taken off TV, and never booked for her stand up acts anywhere. But because she is liberal and mocks people and religions which liberals approve of mocking, she is feted by the liberals who run the entertainment business.
Silverman is a GERMAN name. She must think that's okay or else she would have changed it.
Germans LOVE Christmas.
I went to Germany and saw the Jewish buildings and stuff. I wondered at the time, WHY any Jew, from ANYWHERE, would go to Germany or have ANYTHING to do with Germany or anything German. Go figure.
I’ve got nothing but pity for her.
Her desperation to be shocking is obvious.
These people are German Jews, what do you want her to do, change her name? She’s a jerk, let’s leave it at that.
Needs an exorcist.
I'm one of those who does not want religion or politics mixed in with my comedy. None. Even my own politics. It immediately sets me on edge.
“Sarah Silverman has been treated for mental problems.”
Which she might have, considering that she seems to think that she speaks for all Jews, everywhere. (What a case of either self-importance or cosmic hate that she harbors, while hiding behind Judaism.)
Uh, because the German people and government aren't Nazis?
I’m praying that this woman will find Christ. I am serious about this.
Many of them are liberals who whole heartedly support the democrats who want to see Israel annihilated.
I don't have any idea on that one, either.
Germany expelled their Jews so those Jews in Germany today WENT BACK to Germany.
Would you go back to a country that did that to your people? Maybe you would. I wouldn't.
As for changing her name, I assume that if it meant anything to her she would have. LOTS of people change their names. The names "Fuch" would be one. Jerk or not, there are SOME names that just won't do...especially for children. They can always GO BACK to the original name.
I had a Chinese student once whose name was BICH. There were several students around the table when the name came up. I said "Bisch" as it rhymes with "feesh." She said, "No, bitch."
I said, "okay, bitch it is."
After almost all the students had left I made the comment that I always thought that names of people should be pronounced the way they wanted, not with what the current culture dictated...but in THIS case, I would make an exception.
What's your name? LingLing Bitch. Wunnerful, ain't it?
You're more charitable than I. I'm hoping she'll find a speeding bus ...
She’s not in the same league as Sam Kinison or even Andrew Dice Clay.
I have friends who knew a Metis family whose surname was Gros-Batard (in English, fat bastard).
You can have 100 Muslims groping to slit the throat of a liberal secular jew, and 100 evangelicals reaching to rescue her and she will use her dying breath to scream NAZI.
I will never understand that.
I've been to Germany a lot and, to tell you the truth, they didn't seem fixated on Israel at all. They didn't seem to care about Israel or Jews at all. They have their own problems. They were FAR more focused on the MYRIAD of Turks immigrating to Germany.
You know what many of their complaints were about the Turks?
1. They didn't want to work. Mind you, compared to the German work ethic, NO ONE wants to work.
2. They wouldn't learn German.
3. One guy is allowed in and before you know it, the ENTIRE 50-member family is there.
4. The FIRST thing the Turks do is apply for German welfare.
Sound familiar? Lol. The Swedes, here is one headline from Sweden:
Muslim immigrants raped over 300 Swedish children in seven months of 2013
I was visiting a Swedish friend some years ago. We were by a placid, beautiful lake. One the lake there was this rowboat-full of people. One of them threw an empty soda can right into the lake. My friend was SO angry but said nothing. But, ME, being the big mouth American yelled at them: PICK UP THE CAN!!! WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU??!!
They were Turks. They picked up the can. We watched for a while. They probably dumped that can after we left watching them.
The Turks simply don't love the land, this earth, the way the Swedes do. That simple. Turks are pigs; Swedes are not...though there are exceptions, I know...so FReepers, DON'T start in on me about YOU knowing dirty Swedes and clean Turks. THANKEW!
WWII started over 70 years ago...that is at least two lifetimes. People DO get over things. Some don't.
My own mother always mistrusted the Japanese...being on the West Coast. There are still the old bunkers on the coast for guns pointing west towards an "imminent" attack from Japan.
My wife’s parents won’t buy a German car.
That is very sad. I wish she would too.
Needs an exorcist:
Maybe she needs that too. I'm sure she is getting all the help she wants and needs.
Religion is a most difficult topic for comedy. It’s often easy to see humor in aspects of religious faith or practice/ ritual, but relating one’ s possibly-amusing insights in a manner that avoids causing some offense in some people is very hard to do. We tend to be quite sensitive about our faith and not too keen to have it treated in a comedic way. I have no idea who this lady is and from the report I’d just suggest she may be better off doing something else in her routines. I try not to get upset with humor or even attempted humor but, occasionally I do Everyone probably does. There are so many other things a comedian can talk about these days, I wouldn’t try to do too many religious jokes if I were on stage. Even really take yes professional comedians have caused some offense in some viewers when they’ve done religious topics ( Tom leher , Myron Cohen , you name it).
She’s disturbed and infantile.
I hope she does not. Doing so would be a grave sin as it is tantamount to committing idolatry.
Ooo, the Germans DO make good cars. In fact, really all they do is make cars.
Well, your mother will pass. Mine did last June. She was 94 years old. I can't blame her prejudices as we all have them. She did eat copious amounts of Japanese food. So, her prejudices didn't run THAT deep.
Also one could always use the bathroom at a Japanese restaurant because they were clean, clean, clean...the COMPLETE opposite at Chinese restaurants.
At Chinese restaurants one NEVER sits by the wall as one will see the cockroaches crawling up the wall. The Chinese will NOT spend money on cleanliness. I used to sit in the CENTER of the room, as far away from those filthy little critters. Now I eschew them altogether.
Since the Japanese originally came from China, my theory of their cleanliness, the ANTITHESIS of clean, is this: I surmised that one day a Chinese general or other big shot arrived in Japan, saw it, conquered it and decided to have a CLEAN conquest. So he initiated the famous Japanese BATH.
The entire family bathes together..but showers and scrubs before getting into the communal tub. HOW DIFFERENT is that from the Chinese point of view?
Despite the fact that she’s an idiot “Sarah Silverman” is a pretty nice sounding name, and I don’t think I’d change it, if it were mine. And even though they were victimized and abused I imagine there are many German Jews who are proud of their heritage, or at the very least proud of their family’s name.
I love my own name, and could never consider changing it, but I agree that might not always be the case. I esp. like when someone in law enforcement has the name “lawless” or “savage” for example. But there’s got to be a good story behind some of these names.
Duh, because WW2 ended 68 years ago?
Frankly, I can't think of a woman who has more successfully destroyed my interest in knowing anything more about her at all, in under one minute.
She is vile, sacrilegious, and one of the most prominent bigots I've had the displeasure to observe.
It’s not necessary a German name. It could just as well be English The German word for Silver is Silber and man is spelled with 2 m which would be Silbermann
I like your posts.
With titanic tits...
No they aren’t *rme*
She doesn’t have the mental capacity for anything else.
She might be attractive on the outside, but what inside that counts and it isn’t pretty
\So ignorant. His ideas weren't new. God is eternal and unchanging.
My dad fought the Germans in WWII, but he drove Volskswagens his whole life. I learned to drive on a Volkswagen.
It IS a pretty sounding name, Sarah being an old, old Jewish name STRAIGHT out of the old Testament.
As for German Jews being proud of their heritage? I doubt if too many are proud of that German heritage. The Germans did produce a zillion geniuses and things to be proud of but...I dunno.
*When I visited Austria some years ago we had an Austrian guide who said with a laugh: "We keep trying to convince the world that Hitler was German and Beethoven was Austrian." I didn't think that was humorous.
**I was in Hamburg a while back on a tour bus. The guide was pointing out the LEGAL brothels to us. She made a point of saying how ENLIGHTENED Europeans were having legal brothels.
I COULDN'T help myself!!!! My loud, clear, crisp teacher voice popped up: "Yes, isn't that wonderful?? Having your daughters, mothers and sisters lying on a bed, flat on their backs, with their legs up in the air with a TOTAL stranger? Isn't that SWEET?"
There was instant, IMMEDIATE silence. Not a word, even from the guide. I was SO right that NO one cold utter a sound for 15 minutes.
***I never heard the name "lawless" before but "savage"--Michael Savage. I always liked what he said but his SCREAMING got REAL old, REAL FAST.
****I also got tired of STUPIDS saying that prostitution was the oldest "profession" in the world. POPPYCOCK. Prostitution didn't happen until humanity had PLENTY of spare time to waste. The OLDEST professions were:
It was all about survival first, not screwing total strangers for a price.
I'm back, I guess, until I get SCREAMED off the site again.
Who needs that s***?
Right you are.
Americans tend to think of Japanese and Chinese culture as “almost” the same. Really very different in many ways. Attitude towards cleanliness just one example.
First words I ever heard out of Sarah Silverman’s mouth, I wished I could urinate napalm.
Note the necklace.
She’s not worthy of the attention... and she isn’t a has been, she’s a “never was.”
“she isnt a has been, shes a never was.
“I never heard the name “lawless” before...”
It’s not that uncommon, I’ve seen it a few times, but the first time I ever noticed it was a woman named Betty (I think it was that) Lawless, she was the head of the board of elections in Hudson County. I’m sure Ms. Lawless was a fine, upstanding woman, but it did seem quite amusing in a place renowned for voting by the deceased, etc.
I also saw a very odd name once: Forgotson, that’s probably the oddest I’ve seen.
I guess you are right about the oldest professions, I’ve always thought ‘messenger’ is a very old job too. I used to make jokes about that when I worked for a messenger service!
And Micheal Savage is a nut (he kind of lives up to his name), but I heard a great rant by him once, saying how the feminists and planned parenthood should all go over to the Muslim world and tell those folks to start killing their babies, see how that would go over. I loved it!
I saw an article from Sweden saying that you will know if a typical Swede is mad at you if you get a nasty little note from them talking about the problem. The madder they are at you, the less likely your name will be used in the letter. The note will be very impersonal, and they would be livid.
