Sarah Silverman ‘Scared’ & ‘Shaken’ At Sight Of American Flag
How did she get to be this twisted? Scared & shaken at the sight of the flag that stopped the Swastika from flying and brought an end to ovens? Nice Sarah, real nice. Get a grip… Your Jewish ancestors went through the Holocaust. I think you can survive a single flag-raising.
“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,” she remembered. “And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt this feeling of like, um, I felt scared – yeah, I felt scared. ”
Comedian Sarah Silverman said in the latest episode of her Hulu show that she was “scared” and “shaken” when a former boyfriend put up an American Flag in his front yard.

Silverman opens the show with a monologue about the time her ex-boyfriend decided to raise an American Flag outside of his house, recalling how disturbed she was by the event. Read more at TDC.
