Sarah Silverman Fired After 2007 Blackface Photo Surfaces

Sarah Silverman, the Christ-mocking, abortion-shouting vulgar-humored Hollywood leftist, is out of a job.

At least one job, that is. The Independent and other outlets reported today that the modern paragon of profanity was “fired from a film after producers unearthed a still of her in 2007 wearing blackface for a comedy sketch.”

At 11pm the night before shooting for a “sweet part” was to begin, Sarah Silverman received notice that she would be replaced. Her 2007 appearance in a comedy-sketch about racism proved to be too much for the producers of the unnamed film.

While, Silverman’s overall career prospects are not likely harmed by this turn of events, it did offer Silverman a chance to reflect on the trend toward “cancel culture.”

True, some jokes just aren’t funny. Silverman herself has called the sketch regrettable. But even more regrettable is the accelerating policy of de-platforming anyone who has at any point in the past transgressed the sensibilities of the month.

To conservatives and liberals—and to Christians and non-Christians alike—it is increasingly obvious that the radical Leftist project of thought-control has no end-point, and no guard-rails.

If the righteousness of man is only filthy rags in the eyes of God (Isaiah 64:6), then how much more must God abhor the rush toward a new “righteousness,” a Hollywood-righteousness that eats even its own?
