"Roseanne" Canceled: Not PC Enough?

My Recent Posts

Two weeks prior to ABC's removal of "Roseanne", the network announced they were "dialing back" the star's support for Trump in the following season.  The fact is:  ABC was embarrassed by the new found popularity of a previously dead show.  As in real life, blue-collar workers (those in the rust belt) helped Donald Trump win the presidency.  That's what Roseanne's character became.  ABC was just looking for a reason, ANY reason to cancel it.

Roseanne Barr's tweet, a joke about Valerie Jarrett being a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and "Planet of the Apes" has been misinterpreted.  Ms. Jarrett is not a natural-born U.S. citizen.  She was born in Iran; therefore, you cannot call her "African-American", regardless of her parentage.

 

Barr meant her joke to be about Muslims, who are not a race.  How can this be about racism?

 

Q.  If any entertainer made a reference to Pres. Trump looking like an ape, do you think they'd be fired?

  • Madonna said she thought about blowing up the White House.
  • Snoop Dogg made a music video, showing a clown-faced Trump being "shot".  (see photo below)
  • Robert DeNiro said he'd like to punch Trump in the face.

Were any of these people punished for what they said?

People should be asking why Pres. Obama's chief advisor (Ms. Jarrett) has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood - and - why Obama gave them billions of dollars during the "Arab Spring".  People should ask why Obama threw away our victory in Iraq, then allowed ISIS to form a caliphate.  People should ask why Obama allowed torture and mass genocide against Christians in the Middle East.

 

Instead, comedienne Roseanne Barr is being demonized for making a dumb joke.

Eric,
They do look very much alike, though Zira is much prettier.
 
You'd think that a flaky loudmouth like Roseanne would be PC proof.
Doug Plumb Added May 31, 2018 - 3:38pm
It seems to me that with enough signatures, Jarret could be arrested for treason, if those statements could be proven. But the muslims don't have any political power yet. Here is the real power and what it says.
Jeff Michka Added May 31, 2018 - 6:41pm
Why is it little surprise that ol "Pard" and Plumb Doug, think the pro-Trumpist barr has some pass to be a racist asshole because her viewers supposedly love Trump so much, and as a result, riff between Barr and Orange Smear bridged my a mutual admiration of cheap racial "jokes" to go over big with "The Base," which are key to Orange Smear's survival.  Of course, ol Pard wants to believe Jarett is treasonous, so it must be so, eh?  Geezus, you people. I'm sure Plumb Doug can drag up some "anti-Roseanne conspiracy.  Mybe Douggie can beat Alex Jones and infowars to the punch.

I don't defend what Roseanne said, but hypocrisy is always inexcusable. And the double-standards mentioned here hardly touch the surface of the issue. Remember Kathy Griffin and the severed head of Trump? And Sammatha Bee's vile remarks about Ivana Trump? Where is the outrage there, where are the cancelations? 
Jeff Michka Added May 31, 2018 - 9:17pm
Why be outraged by Samantha B?  I'd think outrage needs be applied carefully, and think rightist "What about _______?" is, at best, funny "outrage."  Like any time Trump and his unexplained love of Russia comes up, we get "What about Hillary?"  "lock her up," etc.  Faux outrage has no political party, seems a two sided reaction.
Ward Tipton Added May 31, 2018 - 11:13pm
But make sure you do not wear an Obama Mask ... especially if you are a rodeo clown! 
 
Nope, no double standard at all.

IDK why she was cancelled, perhaps she herself also had something to do with this.  She was never a large republican supporter, Ive actually seen pics of her "as a liberal" from fellow comedians who felt she had put on a false front to people with the show.
Perhaps Trump changed her mind, who knows...sitcoms, like football, news programs or anything else, cannot afford to lose sponsorship.  Its always about the money.  Always.

She seems to be the patron saint of low-class frumpy housewives who continually lament their life choices, as if they had only fucked the slimy yuppie-larva fuck instead of the sentient dildo that would have normally brought them fame and fortune.

 What Roseanne said was wrong, but they didn't have to cancel the program, just have her die suddenly and keep it going for the year.  All those people will lose their jobs!

Here in Europe people who even know that "Roseanne" series told me: Well, it's her opinion, so what ? What's the big deal about it ? Any news which are of concern ?

Stoney, when we see irrelevant crap like this being blown up into a major issue by Americans while their country is falling apart, we can be happy that when the EU falls apart the future will look great for Europe's sovereign states.
BTW I think comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape is an insult to apes.
Spartacus Added Jun 1, 2018 - 1:35pm
I think it is very interesting that ABC would cancel a show over an alternative media publishing (tweet).  
I don't think ABC realizes that it just promoted an alternative media, the very thing that is killing mainstream media (itself), over its own credibility and pertinence.
 
The other point is that the ABC guys knew Rosanne was a loud mouth and spoke all kinds of nonsense.  They knew she was PC trouble from the beginning.  It was all a setup.  This is now the left's strategy . . . fail to win.  
Either the show would have miserable ratings from the beginning and that would prove that Trump followers are just too few . . . or . . . Rosanne would hang herself with her mouth.  Fail to win.  But ultimately this fail-to-win strategy will be a monumental fail for MSM.
Benjamin Goldstein Added Jun 1, 2018 - 2:23pm
Always loved Roseanne.
BTW I also defende Kathy Griffin. Hate outrage faking morons.
 
I think the only mistake Barr made was to apologize.
Riley Brown Added Jun 1, 2018 - 6:07pm
From what I've seen Rosanne's comic style, including her recent tweet are mild compared to the outright hate expressed by many other very prominent entertainers who say far worse about everything associated with Trump.
 
Rosanne is a comedian with a sharp tongue, what she said is about as shocking and unexpected as Don Rickles insults.
 
I'm sure her political popularity and comments that supported conservative ideals is why they used this excuse to shut down her show.  I hope another station picks it up.
Benjamin Goldstein Added Jun 1, 2018 - 6:13pm
No, it's like in Stalin's Russia. All traces of her must go, so also the re-runs of the old seasons on other stations. Even the German station that was running a dubbed rerun of her old episode pulled it off the air. That's how totalitarianism looks like.

Can anybody tell me why, when you submit an article, it sometimes doesn't register, causing one headline to appear as multiple articles?

What?  Nobody has blame the Jewish-controlled media for the cancelation?  Wow!  WB's anti-Semite league must have a disease that has prevented them from hitting at this low hanging NON-fruit   Someone get Billy the Nazi!!
James Travil Added Jun 1, 2018 - 11:29pm
Eric there is a problem with the site that is causing this, when you submit an article it doesn't show like it posted, but it probably did, so don't hit to post it again or you may get the multiple posts problem. Autumn is working on it. 
James Travil Added Jun 1, 2018 - 11:35pm
I agree somewhat with Benjamin, Rossane shouldn't have apologized. It did no good so fuck um if they can't take a joke!
I was casually watching the show when I had the time to see why everyone was so upset about it, anyhow I wasn't current and now I guess I'll never be because Hulu pulled the entire series. Yea it does seem pretty draconian... 
Flying Junior Added Jun 2, 2018 - 3:22am
Call me crazy, I'm going on record that it is up to the producers of Samantha Bee Full Frontal whether or not they wish to fire her.
 
Personally, I'm not happy with crazy TV personalities making liberals look bad.
 
I think it is a little bit insane and self-loathing of Ms. Bee to use a derogatory term that insults and diminishes all women.
 
I think if someone chooses to use the word, "cunt," it should be in a nice way.  Am I wrong on this?
 
Example:
 
She had a nice, little cunny that made me quite happy indeed.  A beautiful cunt is like a flowing stream of warm water.
 
I wouldn't even call Dick Cheney a cunt.  It's just a manners thing.
Stone-Eater Added Jun 2, 2018 - 7:25am

Cheney isn't a cunt, he has none. He's a prick. But as Ian said, blowing up minor things to keep people off brain seems to be the method that works best. Fight over irrelevant stuff and let the others do the big deals in the hidden.

Eric Reports, to answer your question, the WB web site has been having lots of problems, and that is one. Here is the work around.
 
When you submit an article, hit the button to submit it once, then go to your profile and look to see if the article is visible on your profile.  You may need to refresh the page to see it. 
 
Even though the page you submit the article on doesn't show it was accepted, it always shows up on you profile page.
 
I am sad to say that many other web functions also don't work, including the ability to delete articles, and lots of WB folks weren't even able to see their profile page or do anything for days at a time.  I think it's an amateur site at someone's house.
Riley Brown Added Jun 2, 2018 - 12:44pm
Jeff M, if the Jews control the media, can you please explain why they allow such a wide variety of opinions?
 
Fox hates ABC and they constantly battle each other, why don't those Jews just get rid of news outlets that have opinions they don't like?
 
Why don't they tell them what to think and say?
 
Or... might those Jews not really be in charge?
Jeff Michka Added Jun 2, 2018 - 4:50pm
I don't think the jews are behind media control, that's the thing for a lot of your new rightist buddies here, Riley.  Answer your own questions posed, Riley.  You finally got it,  "those Jews" aren't really in charge, but that doesn't dent the opinions of WBs gentleman's anti-Semite club. 
Pardero Added Jun 2, 2018 - 5:26pm
Jeff Michka and Riley Brown,
Of course there will be rivalries even inside dominant in-groups. Roseanne Barr might have cost ABC a lot of revenue, and that trumps any other interests.
Jewish actress gets axed by Jewish broadcaster(are there any other?) for racial? slur against Marxist Muslim Afro-Iranian-American woman. Yawn. So what's up with Tommy Robinson, the Jewish 'Brit' provocateur?
 
See, you two are competing at virtue-signaling, as to which is the greater semitophile. Zionism makes for strange bedfellows.

Looks like Dino may get his wish, at least sorta. There are talks to bring back the Conner family, just without Roseanne. I guess we will see. 
Pardero Added Jun 2, 2018 - 10:28pm
Riley Brown,
Since this site makes no money, it would follow that a possibly time-consuming vocation would be necessary to pay the bills. I put in 60-70 hours a week, myself. I get a bit of time off, and here I am, instead of doing needful things. 
 
Be grateful that the site exists, warts and all, and grateful, too, that I lack the time and motivation to clutter this place with the dozens of great ideas for articles that I have.

Hm. Pard is not a conservative. He's got an open mind that's all. When do we stop to label people ?
Mark Hunter Added Jun 3, 2018 - 5:24am
It's no surprised she got dumped, considering the hypocrisy of the entertainment industry--the only real surprise is that they put the show on the air at all after learning of her political leanings. I'd almost have to admire their willingness to lose money, if they treated both sides of the political spectrum the same.
Since they don't, I'd suggest the best thing would be to let the ratings decide the TV schedule, regardless of what icky things the people involved say.
Eric Reports Added Jun 3, 2018 - 10:02am
Some random comments...
Kathy Griffin was fired by CNN.  
Samantha Bee's insult was planned, HBO & Bee knowing it would make the MSM news.  Now, Bee is "known".
ABC's snap decision - was it thought out?  If they bring it back, (without Roseanne), it will last as long as that "After-MASH" show.
The day it happened, I wondered if another 9/11 happened, would they still be talking about it?  
Kurt Bresler Added Jun 3, 2018 - 10:09am
I think everyone is missing the point!   Rosanne wanted ALL conservatives to become aware of the Islamic Threat to American Politics.  Why is it that we are willing to spend billions to bomb ISIS but if they act nice we will elect them so they can destroy our country.  Get with the real program folks ! ! ! 
Benjamin Goldstein Added Jun 3, 2018 - 10:22am
The outrage machine sucks. It just gets louder year after year until we finally trow a stick into the toothweels. We must stop these apologies unless something is really, really problematic. Hell, we need an army of Ann Coulters by now. This should be a bipartisan issue: The correspondence dinner girl, Kathy Griffin, Joy Behar, O'Donnel...just defend them unless they kill somebody or doxx somebody or do something else that is truly evil. Jokes are jokes.

Why should ABC go forward with some crazy, potty-mouth racist who can't control her verbal diarrhea on social media?  A star is a star only as long as they cultivate and maintain a desirable public persona.
 
Benjamin complains of the outrage machine.  The phony outrage is coming from the Trump sycophants.  Trump called Roseanne to congratulate her on her show after the first episode.  That's his nod that she's, "one of us," right?  Like that maniac Dinesh D'Souza?  I guess that dewd is alright with Trump as well.  Y'all should see some of his statements all in one place.  Absolutely disgusting.  That's the kind of thing that Trump likes.
 
It's as if someone had their own show on primetime network TV and they couldn't resist posting pictures of their genitals on social media.  The producers just pulled the plug.  It's not anyone else's business.  Y'all understand who Wanda Sykes is, n'est ce pas?  She's a bigger star than Roseanne.
 
I wasn't really planning on watching it anyway.  IOKIYAR
 
Too bad about your prophetess of doom, Kurt.  I guess someone else will have to convince us all.

Wanda who? Are you kidding me? I have never heard of this ape before zee(?) pulled out. I'm also disappointed about the kike-dyke who played Darlene. But I hated Gilbert for years already since she has this chat show. Women, take a close look drugs and leftism will inevitable render you unfuckable.
Flying Junior Added Jun 4, 2018 - 2:18am
Wow Benjamin,
 
Let's see your true colors.  Racist, homophobic, sexist if not misogynist, and anti-semitic all rolled up into one paragraph.  I know, I'm so hopelessly PC.  Did you really say, "unfuckable?"  That's insane.  Gay girls don't want dick anyway.
 
She's pretty famous.  I guess she is more widely known stateside.  She's been in a jillion TV shows for the last three decades.  She starred with Larry David in the popular, "Curb Your Enthusiasm."  She used to write jokes for Chris Rock.  She has been in a couple of dozen films.  She's a very funny lady.
 
But you called her an ape.  Just like Roseanne called Ms. Jarrett.  I would hate to compare so closely with Barr.  Doesn't it creep you out at all?
Benjamin Goldstein Added Jun 4, 2018 - 1:00pm
Roseanne die not call Ms Jarett an ape. She said, Jarrett is the baby of the movie Planet of the Apes and the Muslim brotherhood. Jarett looks to the tee total like a character from the movie, including her hairdo.
 
I on the other hand called Wanda Dykes an ape. This broad refused an apology. I have never heard of her before and wish her bad luck for the future.

Wanda Sykes is a fascist who said on The Tonight Show to Jay Leno that Edward Snowden should be tried for treason (because he revealed the actual treason of the Obama regime and NSA) and shot. I personally hope she gets what she wished that fine patriot, a bullet.

It's funny. People often think I missed my television sets. 
 
Every once in a while, a friend would bring me one, convinced that I was missing something. 
 
I would set it up generally out about three hundred meters, plug it into the generator and select which rifle fit my mood to place the first round ... I never missed my television sets! 
 
Mind you, I do long for the days of the CRT sets as they were so much more ... reactive ... when they were hit.
