Hollywood is full of smug liberals.
They want to impose their values on the rest of the country.
But comedian Sarah Silverman took her smugness too far with what she said about Donald Trump voters.
Tinseltown is an insular community.
Over the years, the left established a monolithic culture in the industry.
Rogue conservatives exist.
But they’ve either been grandfathered in like Clint Eastwood, exiled like James Woods, or they work in secret.
This near monopoly on entertainment results in one-sided political fare.
Any film or TV show with a political bent hews to the left.
Prominent entertainers constantly push their agenda, then pat themselves on the back.
They can’t understand how anyone would think differently.
In 1972, famed film critic Pauline Kael once delighted in the fact she only knew one person who voted for Richard Nixon.
This is the way leftists think.
They preach tolerance.
But what they really want is conformity.
“It’s Like Cults”
Those are the words Sarah Silverman used to describe Trump supporters.
In her self-deluding Hulu series, Silverman embarked on a journey to open a dialogue with people in red states.
But as is often the case with these liberal explorations of Middle America, Silverman just wanted to feel superior.
It’s a chance for her to push her leftist values onto other people.
Silverman didn’t mince words when she described her travels.
On HBO’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher asked her if she’d changed any minds.
Silverman responded, “Probably not. But I’m changing mine, I mean, not politically, not ideologically, but you do realize there is a difference, a bit of a difference between the liars and the lied to.”
Paradoxically, Silverman is part of both the “liars” and “lied to.”
She continued, “They don’t know they are lied to. It’s like cults. Cults don’t know they’re cults.”
Silverman’s comments about cults are dripping with irony.
Religion of Leftism
Either Silverman is lying, or she doesn’t even realize she’s part of a cult.
Because that’s exactly how the left operates.
For evidence, look no further than their countless protests where they recycle the same monotonous chants.
Many Hollywood leftists wear their atheism as a badge.
But they’re equally dogmatic.
There are certain tenets they must abide by.
If not, they are excommunicated.
For example, leftists worship abortion.
This is the ultimate purity test for people on the left.
Far left DNC chair Tom Perez said pro-life Democrats no longer have a place in the party.
Unhinged leftists did everything in their power to shut down a conservative film about the Roe V. Wade Supreme Court case.
Michelle Wolf, who made a name for herself by trashing Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, had a sketch on her short-lived Netflix show where she sang a song called “God Bless Abortions.”
Silverman has also made jokes in support of abortion.
Actresses line up to champion abortion with Twitter hashtags and PSAs.
It shocks the conscience to believe that people could worship a practice where babies are torn from the womb piece by piece.
Leftists also deify political figures with vigor.
They built an entire cult of personality around Barack Obama.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said he got a thrill up his leg listening to him speak.
Conversely, leftists turn every Republican into Hitler.
They’ve taken the rhetoric even further and suggested Trump is worse than Hitler.
As a result, they’ve sanctified Robert Mueller even though his Russia probe is falling apart.
They desperately want him to take down Trump because “orange man bad.”
