Hollywood star Sarah Silverman fired back at Joy Reid and other liberal critics after she called out the MSNBC host for spreading misinformation about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Sarah was heavily criticized so she took to her podcast to shit down her critics. She said:
“Here’s the thing, if you read the article she retweeted, you read that 23 other states have this voluntary civilian militia already, including California and New York. We’re so divided, we can’t even criticize the people on our own side. We can’t even critique anyone in your own party without punishment.
“One of the hosts of The View was like, ‘What hubris for Sarah Silverman to accuse a black woman of not reading,’ Oy! Jesus H, What the, I f*cking, I surrender! Good grief. I don’t want any trouble.
“I cannot believe I need to say this, but I did not criticize Joy Ann because she’s black, but because she’s a Harvard-educated journalist with the responsibility, ideally, of showing the whole picture and not just a piece of a picture.
“Where do I get just the plain old news?”
“I need a news outlet that’s just the facts, something that I can draw my own opinion — just facts, and then I draw my own opinion on it.
“That would be so nice. I’d like to draw my own conclusions sometimes. I mean, I’m interested in other people’s thoughts, but, um, it can’t only be that.
“And good grief, you dare criticize anything in your own party, you’re the enemy.
“And that kind of black and white thinking on both sides — it’s such a turn-off to me, that ‘you’re either with us or against us’ kind of vibe with no room for questions or critique — it feels very not liberal to me.”
The left went after Sarah because she called out Joy Reid for spreading misinformation.
Reid shared a CNN article about Ron DeSantis and a new Florida civilian force with the comment, “So… y’all know this is fascisty bananas, right…?”
The MSNBC host failed to mention Florida would become the 23rd state to have such force causing Silverman to say:
“Please read the article before you post this stuff you’re a news outlet. The truth has to matter.”
