So Roseanne Barr has been fired by ABC for making a stupid joke for which she apologised. For those who missed it this is what she tweeted. It relates to Democrat politician Valerie Jarrett. (VJ)

Now of course this was stupid and the apology seems heartfelt. But she was fired anyway.

Now then, since it is important for the media to be consistent about this, and since comparing people to Apes is strictly forbidden, when does this guy get sacked?

  1. David,

    You are cleverer than that. That you choose to believe that it is only that you can’t compare people to apes that is the problem with Roseanne Barr’s tweet is beneath you. You, I, and everyone else here know that comparing black people with apes is a tired racist trope.

    It isn’t that she made fun of her looks that is the problem. The problem is that she made a racial slur.

  2. Roseanne Barr was never the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    She walked right into this buzz saw.

  3. Bill Maher was funny.

    Trump has such a hair trigger temper, and he is constantly saying horrible and unfair things about others, the bum deserved that remark a hundred times over

    And Trump actually sued Maher over it, only to have the case thrown out of court

  4. It’s been a long six years since Roseanne and Jill Stein were duking it out for the Green Party nomination for president.

  5. It was.

    I want to see how Trump plays this one, now.

    Of course, he’s no racist.

    Never saw the appeal of Roseanne Bar. Whatever she was sellin’, I wasn’t buyin’.

    And she is so desperately stupid.

  6. Barr’s comment was of course racist. It should be noted that ABC was happy to profit off of her when her comments were more subtle (though as an irrational loudmouth subtle has not been her stock in trade).

  7. I notice that mo-one is disputing the allegation about the Muslim Brotherhood.

    As for racism, so what? If Roseanne Barr were a Democrat it would never have been a story. Jimmy Kimmel built his profile on blacking up and mimicking black accents. He’s still in demand by studios because he’s a Democrat.

    So this horror about racism is BS. Total BS.

    All ABC has done is lose millions of viewers while reminding everyone of Left Wing hypocrisy.

  8. Barr mentioned the MB because Jarrett was born in Iran to black american parents. It was also a nasty slur.

  9. Is it wrong to liken blacks to apes because they really do look like apes? Whites, of course, don’t look like apes so everybody knows that the ‘joke’ can be made safely – hence Trump with an orang-utan, and GWB with a chimp, but absolutely nothing on Obama…..

  10. Well that’s just fine, because we know that he’s not a racist any more than his dad is. Or Roseanne Barr.

  11. Why was this hag talking about Valerie Jarrett?

    What does she know about Jarrett Apart from what she has seen on alt right wing nonsense conspiracy sites?

  12. I understand reviving the show wasn’t her idea. I wonder if she wanted to get fired and just wanted to fuck over the rest of the cast and crew

  13. I understand reviving the show wasn’t her idea. I wonder if she wanted to get fired and just wanted to fuck over the rest of the cast and crew

  14. Barr is an obnoxious jackass. This is the end for her and her reputation will be forever the stupid racist nutcase without talent who blew up her career.

    ABC acted quickly and decisively and deserves credit.

  15. As for Consistency, how many times have we seen rightworld be critical of actors making political comments? Now they are bending over backwards to excuse comments of the most obvious and base racism because it is directed at a person whose politics they oppose.

  16. Mahons

    Absolutely spot-on mate. Pete Moore amongst others, goes apoplectic over the stupidest things said by so-called lefties. His hypocracy is absolutely staggering.

  17. “hypocrisy” “racism!” “alt-right”

    This really is all the Progressive Leftists have going for them. This is why they opt for police state tactics at the drop of a hat. Enforcement of their world-view has to be by force – that’s how thin and inconsequential their actual believe system is.

    “Imagine there’s no countries, no religion, too. ” This nonsense has to be enforced by a police state or it just can’t sustain itself.

  18. Tyranny is tyranny…… I refuse to be silenced, edited, or restrained in anything I have to say…. I don’t live in GB or the EU or any of these nations that treat their citizens as property.

    Without free speech you are a slave. PERIOD!

    and Valerie Jarrett was the direct pipeline from Iran into the Obama administration.

  19. What police state enforced the lyrics to John Lennon’s Imagine? The Blue Meanies?

  20. I have a police state? As for Tommy Robinson, what do his antics have to do with Roseanne Barr’s joke?

  21. Mahons: “As for Tommy Robinson, what do his antics have to do with Roseanne Barr’s joke?”

    My point, exactly. You have absolutely nothing to say. Your entire Progressive world-view is based on nothing. Might as well be whistling into an empty can.

  22. Dave Alton –

    Mahons is not spot on. No-one has excused Barr’s comments. What we’ve done is point out the obvious hypocrisy of the Left.

    Any word yet from Joy Ann Reid?

  23. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5786659/Illegal-immigrants-lived-luxury-hotel-falsely-claiming-Grenfell-Tower-victims.html

    Facing jail: Illegal immigrant couple falsely posed as Grenfell victims then spent £120,000 living at a luxury hotel for eight months despite moaning about quality of the menu

    This is nothing to do with the Grenfell fire. Just open the link and see the pics and then ask yourself as I did: are these human?

    Of course, I’m only joking

  24. Facing jail: Illegal immigrant couple falsely posed as Grenfell victims then spent £120,000 living at a luxury hotel for eight months despite moaning about quality of the menu

    These two charlatans have been living illegally in the UK for 16 years. I would like to know how they supported themselves for so long?.

  25. Valerie Jarrett is a Communist.

    Any evidence? And even if this was true, would it mean that she deserves to be mocked as an ape and a jihadist? And if her skin was white would she have been mocked like this by this so-called celebrity who has become an overnight Rightworld hero?

    Alt-Rightists like Patty are not just bigots, they are morally bankrupt.

  26. Patty – your point exactly? You are making less sense than usual. Did you take an Ambien?

  27. Pete – you and others have excused it here. You don’t type on invisible ink.

  28. Rosanne Barr doesn’t know who Valerie Jarrett is, and neither do any of us. Let’s not pretend.

    This is all toxic waste from the noise machine.

  29. Anyone here who pretends for a minute that they know much about Valerie Jarrett has way too much time on their hands.

  30. Pete Moore,

    Mahons is not spot on. No-one has excused Barr’s comments. What we’ve done is point out the obvious hypocrisy of the Left.

    And here’s a previous post of yours excusing Barr’s comments:

    As for racism, so what? If Roseanne Barr were a Democrat it would never have been a story. Jimmy Kimmel built his profile on blacking up and mimicking black accents. He’s still in demand by studios because he’s a Democrat.

    So this horror about racism is BS. Total BS.

  31. Thanks Dave. It looks as I said, that the point is Leftist hypocrisy.

    Commies – any word yet from Joy Ann Reid?

  32. Oh my. This just out:

    Phantom’s favorite lawyer – that Avenatti guy – just resigned from the Stormy Daniels/Cohen case after being scolded by the judge, called out for being a hallow publicity hound.

  33. Actually he is a publicity hound.

    He seems far more interested in fighting Trump than he is in representing Trump’s porno girlfriend.

  34. Roseanne was busy on another tweet, more interesting than pointing out that blacks are simians…….

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/roseannes-other-problematic-tweet-was-about-george-soros/

    Before her apology, and while she was parrying appalled responses to her attack on Jarrett, Barr was also dueling with Chelsea Clinton, whom she said in a series of tweets was married to a nephew of George Soros. (She isn’t — it’s a false rumor that seems to have been started by another TV personality, Scott Baio.)

    That devolved into Barr repeating a falsehood popular in some conservative circles that the liberal Hungarian-Jewish billionaire was a Nazi collaborator — a narrative that has problematic echoes in Holocaust denial.

    Open Society is the philanthropist’s charitable foundation, which conservatives here and in Europe, including Barr, accuse of pushing a liberal world order.

    Barr is Jewish and a staunch defender of Israel’s government, but both replies to Clinton have discomfiting echoes in anti-Semitic rhetoric.

    Roseanne is clearly Soros-wise to the effect that she knows that Soros fronts a moneyed entity that funds mass immigration into the civilised white world, whilst simultaneously funding degeneracy and decay, like Ireland’s pro-abortion campaign. So, like Michael Savage, she is jewish and would obvioulsy be supportive of Israel but the US is her home and she puts that first, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

  35. Avenatti withdrew a single motion. He did not resign from Daniel’s case.

    You Trump people are acutely stupid.

  36. D

    He’s a smart guy but he seems to be spending 99 percent of his time trying to bring Trump down and 1 percent of his time on all of his clients

  37. Jarrett was the reason and connection for the Iran deal and giving them the bomb.

    I ranted about Jarrett when Obama was playing King. She should never have been allowed in the WH let alone allowed to be Obama’s number 1 advisor, but the rules didn’t apply to the man who would be king.

  38. I think Avanetti is an obnoxious, preening ass. I don’t care one way or another about the Daniel’s case.

    We all know Trump slept with Stormy when Melania was a new mom. Trumpkins don’t care because they have no moral compass and they’re stupid hypocrites.

    Avenatti is still Daniel’s lawyer.

    look to where he is getting his funding from…… nothing else will need to be explained.

  40. Trumpkins don’t care because they have no moral compass and they’re stupid hypocrites.

    Coming from a woman that accused a cancer survivor of faking her cancer that’s rich…. you moral degenerate.

  41. He’s building a national brand for himself; I would not doubt that he is self-funded,

  42. look up Ron Klain, and Kip Wainscott. They are running his “crowdsource” funding.

  43. Ok

    They’ll get no $ from me

    He’s slick, he’s effective as a partisan, but he may want to spend some time looking after his clients
