Sarah Silverman Slams The Squad For Blocking Us Funding For Israels Iron Dome

Recently, actress and renowned standup comedian Sarah Silverman expressed her disappointment over “The Squad” members’ efforts to block U.S. funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defense system. 

The Saturday Night Live star, who is known for her liberal politics and Jewish roots, was filled with dismay when the group of woke Democrat politicians led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, prevented the approval of the missile defense program that will deter attacks on Israeli soil. The planned $1 billion budget which was meant to protect Tel Aviv from the extremist Hamas, was received with massive bipartisan support, only to be scrapped when members of the woke caucus dubbed “The Squad.” 

“It’s frustrating because my girls, my girls in the Squad, um, really didn’t want it to be funded. They wanted to defund it. And, you know, all the Iron Dome does is protect civilians from getting hit by missiles and bombs. That’s all it does! It’s not a weapon! But you’re wanting to take away from the thing that protects every citizen of Israel,” Silverman said in her podcast last week.

“It’s true! Israeli civilians are Jews and Arabs and Christians. And they are Black and Brown and White. Sorry to tell ya it’s not just dirty Jews you’re letting die. It just feels, you know- the missiles are aimed at citizens. They’re not aimed at, you know artilleries or the Knesset even, which is the Israeli government, which by the way is now co-led by an Arab politician,” Silverman continued.

For the past few years, the Primetime Emmy Award winner has been using her artform as an avenue for her liberal political ideologies. She even supported the likes of socialist personality Bernie Sanders and failed presidential candidate Hilary Clinton back in 2016. Nowadays, Silverman’s love for her Democrat politicians has waned due to the Iron Dome rejection.

“No, Israel is not good for Palestine but you are kidding yourself if you think Hamas is good for Palestine. The whole thing’s just f***ing gross, but f***! It’s not simple! Please do not defund the Iron Dome. I know that it’s not, but just talking to the Squad here, you know, my family lives there!” Silverman exclaimed.

“I want to love them, I really do. I love AOC, I love Rashida Tlaib, I love Ilhan Omar. Their domestic policies are completely aligned with mine and I think they’re so cool and kick-ass, but this is really scary! You make it hard! Not having the Iron Dome is gonna kill people. A lot of people. You’ll finally get that higher body count from Israel,” Silverman added.
