Scrolling through Twitter’s feed (having searched for Tweets about Sarah Silverman), I was rather saddened to come across this woman’s Tweets about the event. In short, she called the staff of the store “Nazis” for not permitting photography with the guest.
For not permitting photography with the guest. (Um — does anyone know any actual Nazis that would host an event where the guest is a prominent Jew? Anyone? Bueller?)
At this point, I went from “saddened” to “What kind of entitlement syndrome does someone have to have to equate rules on photography with Nazism?”
Used to be, people who committed genocide were called Nazis. Now, it’s just people who work at a bookstore that want to keep the line moving as fast as possible so people aren’t standing around for four hours.
Lady, do you have any clue what the Nazis did? Clearly not. Between this and the Adolf Hitler videos, I think maybe people are forgetting what evil he truly represented. When you go around to calling people “Nazis” for not allowing photography, truly … well, frankly, you’ve completely lost your argument (whatever that might’ve been, “Oh, no, they’re not going to let me have my way”, perhaps?), and proved yourself to be a complete, total, and utter moron.
Entitlement = it’s a mentality, NOT A RIGHT.
It’s also highly classy that she ended her Nazi tweet with “Stay Jewish!”, having just called the staff Nazis.
In any case, since we’re all Nazis (by her estimation), I’m not sorry at all that we won’t be seeing her in the bookstore again. Goodness knows she doesn’t want to support Nazis.
As for the ironic bit: if she’d hung around at the store after having had her book signed, Sarah did actually stop on her way out to take photos with people. Crazy!
