Sarah Silverman Black NRA

Sarah Silverman is back with a new “Funny or Die” video, but this time around she seems to think inherently racist skits about violent black people are hilarious. What’s more knee-slappingly fun than forwarding the notion that there are enough inherently violent black people out there that white hicks would respond with paranoia while the enlightened Hollywood Progressives would just opt to emulate the gun control measures pushed by men like Michael Bloomberg?

Good comedy brings deeper truths to the surface, but this skit is based on the lie that the NRA would seek to prevent law-abiding black people from owning guns. Nothing could be further from the truth. Perhaps black-on-black crime would be reduced if the guy who has to work the late shift before walking home in a bad area had an easier time acquiring a hand gun. Sarah Silverman doesn’t put her head down at night in Detroit. She puts it down in a community that struggles with real crime: the really long wait for prosciutto at Whole Foods.

If Sarah Silverman did a little research into Trayvon Martin (aka: “@No Limit Nigga”), she’d know that Mr. “I beat the p*ssy up up up up up,” Mr. “Puss ass crackas,” Mr. Bus-driver-beat-down-tweets, was on a life trajectory before he died that was anything but funny. But hey, why does that matter when we can insinuate that the NRA’s white members would freak out if black people ever started owning guns in places like Chicago (where currently only criminals and murderers acquire them with ease).

Trayvon cracka retweet

Here now are excerpts from Sarah Silverman’s bizarrely racist skit.

Sarah Silverman: The NRA considers itself the longest standing civil rights organization.

Ron Funches: They say it’s ever American’s right to bear arms.

Neal Brennan: So they obviously mean every American, right?

David Alan Grier: That’s why the NRA is launching a new organization.

Deon Cole: The Black NRA.

Sarah Silverman: Our guns will put guns into the hands of those who need them most.

Cole, Grier and Silverman: Young … black … males. …

Cast: If some people should have them, then we should all have them. …

Grier: Now that I have a gun, I feel safe doing everyday Normal things.

Funches, Cole and Grier: Like wearing a hoodie, eating Skittle, walking in the rain, or living in Florida. …

Silverman: Thanks NRA, you told me what real realistic peace is all about. Standing your ground, pointing that gun at the bad guy, and having him point it right back and go “hey, I guess we’re not that different after all.”

Funches: So support the Black NRA, and help us arm every … young … black … man … in America. Then freedom will truly ring out.

Silverman: That’s what you mean, right NRA? …

Grier: You don’t have a problem with this, do you?

Actually, no. The NRA doesn’t have a problem with law-abiding citizens owning firearms. In fact, it would be nice if in places like Murder Central (i.e., Chicago), more honorable black people wielded them and took the city back.

We still have a four months to go in 2013, and Chicago already has 301 homicides.

Three murders over the weekend brought the city’s homicide total to 301 for the year. Another 17 people were wounded in shootings since late Friday.

Adrian Sianez, 24, was fatally wounded in a gang-related shooting Sunday morning in the Gage Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Sianez was in the 5500 block of South Mozart about 3:40 a.m. when someone got out of an SUV and started shooting, authorities said. He was shot multiple times in the back and once in the buttocks, police said. Sianez, of the 5700 block of South Rockwell, was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital at 10:11 a.m., the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said.

When will Sarah Silverman do a “Funny or Die” sketch about the good people in Gage Park who are surrounded by gang violence? I won’t hold my breath.

Here’s what I wrote in response to Piers Morgan’s knee jerk response to the Sandy Hook shooting. The same applies to Sarah Silverman, who wants you to believe Trayvon Martin was just a modern version of Fred Astaire, singing in the rain with Skittles, as opposed to a kid who likely threw the first punch at George Zimmerman — the first crime committed on the night of his death — before bashing his head into the concrete.

Ideological allies of Piers Morgan act as if it’s a foregone conclusion that America will continue to be the freest nation on the face of the Earth. They fail to take into consideration what role the Second Amendment played in creating such an exceptional country in the first place. They reject the mountain of evidence out there that free, law-abiding citizens exercising their right to determine when, how and if they defend themselves are one of the best bulwarks against tyranny a nation can have. And instead of digging deep down into the cultural changes that have metastasized over the course of decades — cancerous mutations in the national psyche that could produce a man who opens fire on a classroom of children — Piers Morgan blames inanimate objects.

Sarah Silverman’s newest “Funny or Die” sketch isn’t funny — it’s sad.

  1. Well said! I still do not understand the ignorant stance of taking away our protection which we use to protect ourselves from the very ones who do not follow the rules that we need to protect ourselves from. This is not an issue of color as much as it is a issue of self protection which is necessary. Everyone should have the right to protect themselves from others and dare I even say the overeach of our government.

  2. Obviously Ms. Silverman doesn’t know prosciutto from mahtzo ball soup, although she professes to be from one of the tribes of Israel.

    Paging Ms. Silverman : There’s a comedy writer on the phone for you. Do you need anything?

  3. She’s an idiot and I’ve never found her to be particularly funny. I suppose she’s unaware that during the Jim Crow era, the NRA defended African Americans against racism and that gun control actually has racist roots: http://www.firearmsandliberty.com/cramer.racism.html

    The problem isn’t guns, it’s people. People have the right to defend themselves, like Truthwillwin1 said, even against a tyrannical government. I’ve been accused of “paranoia” by people I know who are pro-gun control and they tell me, “we just want reasonable measures.” Which translates to, “restricting the rights of law-aiding citizens by taking away their guns. And such a belief is not unfounded with the current administration.

    Also, Hollywood needs to acknowledge that some of the violent entertainment it puts out probably does have an effect on unstable people. That includes movies, TV, comics, video games, etc. I’ve watched/read/played all of the above without being affected, but then again I’m not an unstable person and acknowledge that it might drive some unbalanced nutcase over the edge.

    Plus this poll acknowledges that Hollywood is considered by more than a few to be the problem, not guns:

    1. Taxi Driver influenced John Hinckley to attempt to assassinate Reagan, to name just one example. He was also doing it to try and impress Jodie Foster, who was also in the movie.

  4. Like many limousine liberals, Sarah Silverman makes race an issue in every argument, because she assumes that anyone who disagrees with her about anything is a racist. Besides, it’s easier to play the race card and cloud an issue than to honestly address the substance of an argument. (Just as, in the 1950’s, it was easy to squelch dissent and smear opponents with accusations like “commie” and “Red.”) And it’s easier to blame crime on inanimate objects than to blame it on criminals. The latter would require admitting personal responsibility. And, yes, Martin was on a trajectory that could only end badly. If he had not been shot in self-defense by Zimmerman, he probably would have been murdered in a drug deal that went bad. Or maybe he would have died from HIV, Hepatitis, or an overdose (the autopsy found liver damage consistent with codeine abuse). Maybe some time in juvie would have scared him straight, maybe not. We’ll never know; his drug use, receiving stolen property, and truancy were all pretty much swept under the rug to downplay the crime statistics (and, probably, to avoid false accusations of racism). Martin’s parents should probably be in jail for child neglect and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, instead of making the rounds of TV talk shows.

    1. Tom, do you have a blog? You’ve commented a few times and I have been consistently impressed by your insight and delivery. If you haven’t considered writing your own posts, you should.
