Sandra Bernhard Says Gov. Sarah Palin Would Be Gang-Raped By Blacks in Manhattan

Sandra Bernhard is a nutjob that should apologize to blacks everywhere for insulting us with her ridiculous comments. Bernhard is been shown calling Palin “Uncle Women,” a “turncoat bitch” and a “whore.” I think she has crossed the line of political correctness, though some have said otherwise. According to Ari Roth of Theater J:

In fact, the play wears its politically VERY correct heart on its sleeve with its indictment of America as “A Man’s World, It’s a White Man’s World, It’s a F–ked Up White Man’s Racist World” and can only be suggested to be racist in its content if one is hell-bent on protecting White Folk for Sandra’s blistering indictment.When Sandra warns Sarah Palin not to come into Manhattan lest she get gang-raped by some of Sandra’s big black brothers, she’s being provocative, combative, humorous, and yes, let’s allow, disgusting. Really? She’s being disgusting.

Who in the world finds the suggestion of gang-rape humorous? Why did she have to make it racial by saying “big black brothers?” Isn’t that an affront to blacks everywhere?

According to news reports, the D.C. Jewish Community Center is supposedly very happy with their Bernhard show, and partied with Bernhard on opening night. Evidently, according to News Busters, they’re in tune with her right-bashing rage:

We’re proud of our producing — proud of Sandra’s sense of timing — taking the fight out to the house and to the street beyond, channeling so much of our rage and frustration at the bizarre recent twists of fortune since Karl Rove trotted out Sarah Palin for John McCain to briefly meet and then get in bed with.Sandra’s face is hanging 10 feet tall in a banner over the DCJCC steps and we’re proud that she’s a new emblem and ambassador for our theater and our center. She’s not the only one who represents us. But her large heart, her generous talent, and her big mouth are all a big part of who we are.

So, let me go out on a limb here, if blacks insulted the Jewish community with comments such as Ms. Bernhard uttered, then it would be all over the airwaves. Isn’t there an obvious double-standard here? When we speak up we are dismissed as being racist. I am still trying to ascertain what type of low-lifes she was entertaining. My guess is that the average person would have been totally insulted by her denigration of Sarah Palin and her insulting and racist comments about blacks.

Here’s some of what she says in the promo:

Now you got Uncle Women, like Sarah Palin, who jumps on the s–t and points her fingers at other women. Turncoat b—h! Don’t you f–kin’ reference Old Testament, bitch! You stay with your new Goyish crappy shiksa funky bulls–t! Don’t you touch my Old Testament, you b—h! Because we have left it open for interpre-ta-tion! It is no longer taken literally! You whore in your f–kin’ cheap New Vision cheap-ass plastic glasses and your [sneering voice] hair up. A Tina Fey-Megan Mullally brokedown bullshit moment.

Folks you be the judge. I know that the comedians push the envelop way too far in many cases, but we can’t be selective about criticizing them. For me, any comedian that crosses the line ought to be called out on it. Rape is never something to be taken lightly or in jest. Too many women have been violated in such a way and still bear scars, no matter how long ago it occurred.

    I agree with you but let’s face it, Sandra Bernhard is wayyyy past her prime. She was funny a long time ago but she’s not anymore. When comedians start to take themselves too seriously, the comedy abruptly comes to an end.

    Elaine — thanks for the visit and your comments. Yes, Sandra Bernhard is way past her time, but she has insulted women and black men with those comments. I know women who have raped and it is very traumatizing. For her to make light of a serious problem is totally insulting. Unfortunately, rapist come from all walks of life and all ethnicity and it is denigrating to suggest that “big black brothers” would rape Palin. I don’t like anything Sarah Palin stands for, but I am also a woman and I don’t find her comments funny.

    Again, thanks for your comments and come back again!

    I think elaine is on target – “wayyyy past her prime. She was funny a long time ago but she’s not anymore”.

    Being a celebrity comedian is probably very competitive and she obviously has nothing more to offer and sees other comedians pushing her out.

    I’m sure she said what she did to get the attention she craves – and it worked – look at all the press she’s getting for free.

    No matter your race or religion people need to simply let crap like this roll off their shoulder realizing the source – a disparate nut job.

    She was funny?

  • SjP

    Never liked this woman – she always looks like she needs a bath. So, I guess nasty and disgusting just becomes her!

  • Anonymous

    sjp, she doesn’t need a bath…she needs to be fumigated!

    However, let’s remember her alliance – she is a Pro-Obama liberal Democrat.

    Most all conservatives know from which side the real racism is generated – and Sandra Bernhard proves my point – again.

  • normal american

    If i remember right Sandra Bernhard was never funny in any context. She is old and knows that she is just a washed up has been, The only way for her to even make the news now a days is to go so far left that she insults others in ways that are unacceptable to 99% of all americans no matter race. Her rape remark just shows you how desperate she is for any kind of attention.

    To justadog,

    I see racism vastly more prominently in the liberal community (at least public comments) than in the conservative community.

    A good way to tell if a comment – from anyone – is see if your reaction would be identical if it was spoken by someone of a difference race.

    Mayor Nagin of NO: Mayor Ray Nagin on Tuesday apologized for urging residents to rebuild a “chocolate New Orleans” and saying, “You can’t have New Orleans no other way.”
    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/01/17/nagin.city/

    This was a very racist comment. If a white mayor said that he wanted to create a ‘vanilla New Orleans’ he would have been crucified in the media and demanded he resign.

    I guess I just don’t get the humor of a woman being gang-raped by big black brothers. Would I think it was funny if I were Liberal, or a Democrat? Would I think it were funny if I were Jewish or Black? Does my party affiliation (actually registered Independent) stop me from seeing the humor? Is it my religious affiliation (actually none ~ I’m a fallen-away Catholic), or maybe the color of my skin that prevents me from seeing anything funny in this hateful remark? I’m appalled that the Washington DC Jewish Community found it very funny (I went to their website) and made it seem like I just don’t have a sense of humor if I don’t see how funny this is.

    To justadog & anonymous -

    Obviously there are racists on both sides of the aisle. Frankly it's pretty ridiculous of you to imply that Bernhard's comments in some way reflect the views of most liberals, or of most Obama supporters, or that there aren't conservatives out there who are as small-minded as Bernhard. I'm sure I could dig up some racist nutjob who is a conserative and supports McCain. Would it be appropriate to equate you, or conservatives in general, with such a person? Let me take that one for you – no, it wouldn't. Works both ways.
    C'mon, dog, I can tell your better than that.

    These Leftist women are really losing their minds. Rosanne wondered on Bill Maher’s show whether McCain would take away women’s right to vote. Even Maher’s audience thought that was a nutso thing to think.

    This is ridiculous on so many levels. It’s so disgusting and her hand should be called on it immediately

  • Renee

    I don’t remember a time when I ever viewed this woman as funny. This is disgusting and is an insult to POC and women. You don’t need to resort to this level of idiocy to attack Palin, her record is bad enough on its own. All this little comedy spiel is, is an internalization of sexist, white supremacist culture.

  • Shakedown Crews

    Bernhard is a disgusting, racist and arrogant liberal who again proved that the racist comments in this election are coming from the LEFT, not the Right! Didn’t you notice Joy Behar on the view say “Don’t worry, Whoopi, us white folks, we’ll take care of you!” Such patronizingly racist overtones. But that’s what you can expect from the left.
