Sandra Bernhard issued a blistering warning to Sarah Palin during a performance of her new one-woman show.
The Republican V.P. nom would be “gang-raped by my big black brothers” if she enters Manhattan, Bernhard said. Palin is said to be making a campaign stop in New York next week.
“[The gang rape comment] is part of a much larger, nuanced, and yes, provocative (that’s what I do) piece from my show about racism, freedom, women’s rights and the extreme views of Governor Sarah Palin, a woman who doesn’t believe that other women should have the right to choose,” Bernhard told the Daily News today.
“Women deserve better,” she continued. “I certainly wish Governor Palin no harm. I’d just like her to explain to me how she can hold such outrageous views – and then go back to Alaska.”
The controversial comedian targets Palin as part of her “Without You I’m Nothing” stage show this month at Washington, D.C.’s Theater J.
“Now you’ve got Uncle women like Sarah Palin who jumps in this s*** and points her fingers at other women,” Bernhard says, before launching into the several minutes’ long diatribe against Palin, calling her a “turncoat b***”.
“Call the s*** in and tell them what I said tonight,” she says, to laughs and cheers from the audience.
Bernhard isn’t the only celeb to speak out against Palin. Pamela Anderson, Lindsay Lohan, Matt Damon and Pink have all expressed their disdain for the Alaskan Governor.
Damon called her candidacy “a really scary thing,” telling CBS News, “I think the pick was made for political purposes, but in terms of governance it’s a disaster.”
