Roseanne and Her Racist Comments

Ok, lets talk about Roseanne and the stupid, racially insensitive comment that she  made about Valerie Jarret. Considering the history behind calling black people monkeys, apes, gorillas, etc. She should have known better than to use the term attacking Valerie Jarret. There is really no reason to resort to that kind of behavior. Name calling and personal attacks is the domain of the left and the Democratic Party machine. No one who calls him/herself a conservative (Roseanne is not a conservative) should engage in that behavior. It is inexcusable and there is no way to spin it. She is wrong for resorting to ad hominem attacks. There is no one in conservative circles who will defend her comment. The exception of course is that trolls exist on all sides of the political spectrum, and you will always find some faceless trolls defending this type of behavior on the internet. Does the absolutely racially insensitive comment mean that Roseanne is a racist? Hardly, it makes her a person who made a racially insensitive comment, and nothing more. She should be called out for it. She should be chastised, but by no means should she be shunned, and ostracized from the rest of society for her comment. Let us not fool ourselves here either, Roseanne has said some silly things in the past, she can be quite the kook, and her attempts at humor can be very cringe worthy. The reason that the backlash is so severe this time is because she is an unabashed Trump supporter. In addition to her comment, she made the mistake of attacking a prophet of the messiah. Valerie Jarrett is one of the main promulgators of leftist ideology, and a messenger of the holy one known as Barrack Obama (praise be unto his name). Beyond the racially insensitive statement itself is the act of blasphemy by Roseanne. That, ladies and gentlemen might be her biggest offense.

As the media, Hollywood, Democrats and the left in general react to Ms. Barr’s personal racially tinged attack, let us examine their behavior. This is not to excuse Roseanne, but to point out the utter shameless hypocrisy of these charlatans who traffic in name calling and racism. They are only capable of indignation when  an offense is committed by someone with whom they disagree politically. Let us examine some of the behavior that they have been willing to tolerate when the vitriol was directed against a conservative or Republican.

Does anyone remember when a reporter from “The Most Trusted Name in News” described President George W. Bush as a Monkey. She worked for CNBC at the time. The President was with other world leaders that she was describing, and she said “I am not talking about the monkey.” To clarify, she then said, “the monkey in the middle.” Her fellow broadcasters had a good time yukking it up, having a really good time as she called the President of the United States a monkey, while she was on the air, giving a report. Back then George W. Bush was routinely described as a monkey, but back then that was acceptable behavior. Check it out here. 

Here is an excerpt of a Jimmy Kimmel monologue, where he calls President Trump an orangutan: “Here is another weird exchange. At one point during their meeting, Trump noticed something on Macron’s suit, and this was a historic moment because, to the best of my knowledge, it was the first time a world leader ever publicly brushed dandruff off another world leader…you know what, that’s really what orangutans do. They groom each other.” There you go, the classic example of leftist tolerance.

We have an example of Bill Maher “in jest, as comedians are wont to do” as CNN (The Most Trusted Name in News, in case you missed it) said. Maher said that he would pay “$5 million to a charity if Trump could prove he wasn’t the “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” No big thing, that was “in jest.” How about when the black actor Michael Che called the President a cheap cracker on Saturday Night Live. The only thing that followed that was thigh slapping, rib tickling laughter, not righteous indignation. Let’s not forget their attacks on Herman Cain, Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas and every black conservative.

It is easy to go on and on about leftists and Democratic Party intolerance because they have a very sordid history of this type of behavior. The examples are numerous…ok just to indulge a bit, here are a few. It was Bill Maher who called Sarah Palin a MILF, a c***, a t**, he called her down syndrome child a retard, he called she and Michelle Bachman “boobs”. Joss Whedon said that he wanted a rhino to f*** Paul Ryan. Stephen Colbert said that the only thing that Donald Trump’s mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s c*** holster. Tom Arnold told the young black female conservative to “go suck racist d***,” for no other reason that she is a conservative. Samantha Bee recently called Ivanka Trump a feckless c***. That is just a small smattering of their vitriol. When a blogger wrote that Ann Coulter should kill herself, this is what Joy Reid said: “You know, it would kill her, and I think I’m cool with that…” Anyway, as noted; in the interest of brevity, lets end with those few examples. The left was fine with ll of this. Conservatives should not be intimidated, cowered or go into hiding because the “tolerant” people on the left are pontificating and pointing their fingers over this incident. These people wallow in this behavior all the time. This is their territory. It is who they are, so keep perspective. Sure it was a terrible thing that Roseanne said. There is no excusing it, but that’s life. People say and do bad things from time to time. This one statement does not make her a racist, and in addition; it does not reflect conservative values.
