Comedian Sarah Silverman blasted patriotism as a “perverted” mindset and claimed the notion of American exceptionalism is a “childish idea.”
In a recent interview with Vice discussing her new Hulu show I Love You, America, in which she travels across the country speaking to people of all political persuasions, Silverman claimed the “right” had re-defined what it meant to be a liberal, feminist and social justice warrior.
“The right has perverted the meaning of being liberal, or being feminist. Even ‘social justice warrior’ is an insult. We pervert language so much. Patriotism has always been a bit owned by the right. The last delusion on all of our parts is that there are two parties, and they’re made up of two very different kinds of people. I have to think that oligarchs and billionaire wealth addicts aside, for the most part, people are more alike than we think. We’re just getting our news from outlets that are telling us different types of stories.”
Moreover, the 47-year-old comedian described President Trump, in addition to his notion that America is “number one,” as “childish.”
“Patriotism is perverted. We’re not on the same page of what it means. To me, being patriotic is loving your country—being a citizen, having a voice, being e pluribus unum. How perverted it is to go from “We are one” to “We are number one,” which is such a childish idea. There’s a difference between childlike and childish. The president is childish. He was stunted around eight years old––maybe something traumatic happened––but he stopped growing emotionally. And yet, he got all the way to the presidency. There are a lot of pathologies that are not healthy but can bring great success, if that’s how you measure success. The deepest people look at the world with wide-open eyes—which is childlike, not childish.”
Silverman has bought into the left’s anti-American attitude hook, line and sinker.
In a recent segment from her show, Silverman described how she felt “weird” and “scared” by a boyfriend over an American flag displayed on his property.

“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,” Silverman said. “And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt … scared.”
Asked why he felt the need to display the flag, the boyfriend responded, “Um, because I love America?”
As noted by Chris Menahan: “Earlier this year, Silverman panicked after seeing utility markings on a sidewalk which she mistook for swastikas. She also called for a military coup to overthrow President Donald Trump.”
