Hollywood throws around the word “racist” far too often.
It’s their go-to word to describe anyone whom they disagree with.
So it’s no surprise that one anti-Trump comedian just blasted Jeff Sessions as a racist because of his racist comments.
President Trump’s administration celebrates and honors our country’s law enforcement.
Trump is the first President to have the police officers’ back in a long time.
And this is the exact same sentiment that Attorney General Jeff Session echoed in his recent speech to honor America’s sheriffs everywhere.
Sessions used the term “Anglo-American” during his address which is a term used to refer to English Americans or English Canadians and has nothing to do with race.
Of course liberals were outraged, and since they aren’t that imaginative, they slammed Sessions as a “racist”.
But liberal Hollywood “comedienne” Sarah Silverman—who regularly spews her vitriol towards Trump—took it to a whole other level.
Not only did Silverman tweet that, “[Sessions] is a racist [C-word] (no offense to C-words),” she insinuated that people who are prescribed that slur are actually more upstanding than Sessions.
Comedian and Hulu talk show host Sarah Silverman took to Twitter Tuesday and viciously attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his use of the term “Anglo-American” on Monday while speaking to a conference of the National Sheriffs’ Association.
“The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement,” Sessions said, igniting a flurry of invective and charges of racism from many leftist activists and elite media personalities.
However, the phrase “Anglo-American” was used several times, as Breitbart News reporter Ian Mason notes, by former President Barack Obama and his Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Bill Baer (who, like Sessions, is an older white man):
Anglo-American legal heritage, of course, is a concept familiar to anyone who has attended law school.
The concept is frequently referenced in legal opinions and documents. For example, even the hard-left American Civil Liberties Union began an entire section of one of their 1998 amicus briefs to the Supreme Court with “ANGLO-AMERICAN TRADITIONS, CIVILIZED PRACTICE AND THE STRUCTURE OF THE SIXTH AMENDMENT CALL…”
President Barack Obama’s own Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Bill Baer used the same phrase in 2016. Even then-Senator Barack Obama did in 2006, as National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke pointed out.
No major news outlet found either usage remarkable enough to warrant a headline.
Silverman, of course, is no stranger to attacks against President Donald Trump or members of his administration.
Last year, the I Love You, America host suggested that the U.S. military could help overthrow President Trump.
But is any of this surprising?
Every word and deed by any person in the Trump administration is overanalyzed with despicable outrage.
They all need to grow up. Or at least get a better vocabulary.
