Sarah Silverman Mistakes Construction Markings for Swastikas

Source: breitbart.com

Comedian Sarah Silverman got an earful from her social media followers on Sunday after appearing to mistake a pair of bright orange construction markings for swastikas painted by neo-Nazis.

The 46-year-old comedian wrote that she was on her way to get coffee when she noticed the markings on the sidewalk.

“Walking to get coffee saw these all over a sidewalk in the town I’m in. Is this an attempt at swastikas? Do neo nazis not have google?” she wrote.

Of course, Silverman’s followers were quick to point out that the markings were, in fact, innocuous markings used in construction, often to designate a spot for which there is a pipe or a wire underneath.

Others simply ridiculed the comedian for her post, attributing other innocent, everyday situations to the work of nefarious extremists.

After realizing her mistake, Silverman posted a series of follow-up tweets in which she explained that she has begun to see swastikas “in everything” due to the country’s current political climate.

The comedian — who was one of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s earliest and most vocal celebrity supporters before rallying behind eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the general election — has continued to speak out in opposition to President Donald Trump.

Earlier this month, Silverman suggested that the U.S. military could help Americans overthrow the Trump administration.

Shortly after the election, the comedian wrote on Twitter that for many of Clinton’s supporters, the outcome of the race felt like the Great Depression of the 1930s, only worse.
