I've always thought there was something odd about VJ's upper lip, like it was solid.  Now that someone mentioned it, kind of like the ones in the PotA movies.    Maybe it's part of her ethnic background, maybe it's botox gone bad, maybe something happened to her, or maybe it's just the way she was born.

I think it's something of a leap to automatically assume it's racism just because there have been racist comparisons between blacks and apes.

Roseanne Barr was the darling of the left when she mocked the National Anthem at a baseball game.  But say one nice thing about Trump, and the long knives are out.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Of course it escalated quickly. She didn't say anything negative about White Debbils or Republicans of any skin tone or religious beliefs.

She 'tweets some truth'?  As in calling an African American an ape? 

Ever been to the "hood"? Apes are more civilized than many of the young black males AND females. You may not like it,but that doesn't mean it isn't true.

I warned everyone not to tie your cart to this horse. She has always been a nasty racist, truther, disgustoid. Just because she claims to like someone you like doesn't change her spots.

It would have been quicker to have just said she is mentally disturbed. She appeared to be mentally disturbed the first time I saw and heard her speak.  She seems to have no "volume control" over her mouth. If something pops into her head,she just says it.

And surprising no one at all,it's getting worse as she gets older.

Not that we will ever have to hear her any more. This one sunk her boat. She is never getting hired again by the entertainment industry. She's done.

"Jarrett is from Iran and is African American..."

If she was born in Iran, how can she be an "African American?"

@massadvj

IF she has African blood in her it sure doesn't show. What are the chances of her claiming to be black years ago to get preferences,like that dingbat Black Studies white woman out on the left coast?

She is mixed, her grandfather was a pretty famous African American.

Never will understand why celebrities, corporations, and politicians play around on Twitter. There must be well over 10 thousand famous people who have either ruined their careers or at least caused themselves deep harm by saying something stupid on Twitter.


@240B

Uhhh,in her case,it's because she is crazy. Rats used in drug company research labs have better judgement than her.

Want to place the blame where it lies,blame the ABC Yahoos that hired her KNOWING she is freaking nuts,and thinking they could keep her under control. Fish gotta swim,birds gotta fly,and Roseanne Barr has to bark at the moon.

It's not like ABC didn't know what they were getting with her.  Remember the pic of her making "NAZI Cookies"?

IMHO two things are at play here...1) the reboot of her show was more to make fun of Conservatives and Trump supporters more than it was backing them



@txradioguy

BINGO! It is well-known that she hates Republicans as well as actual conservatives,and they were betting she would focus all her wrath on them and help get a Dim back in the WH.

Does that really warrant being blacklisted from all media outlets, though?

There was another case of a local comedian whose name was "Airborne" Eddy Dobosiewicz. He hosted a midnight movie show up here in Western New York and was a feature correspondent for another TV station in the market for about 20 years or so. Well, back in 2015, Eddy made a comment about the Baltimore riots and how the rioters were rampaging like, well, apes. Within hours, he was fired from both of his TV roles, and he has yet to be hired back. Roseanne likely faces the same fate.

Do such statements really warrant such extreme punishment? Even Colin Kaepernick could have his job back if he apologized, and I'd argue that his ongoing hostility toward the anthem is far more offensive to more people. Roseanne likely never will get that chance, not that we know that a provocateur like her ever would.

@jmyrlefuller

A better example is how the left and the entertainment biz especially went after comedian Norm McDonald after he went on The View and complained about the Clinton's getting away with murder. Wasn't even anything racial about that,and his top rated sitcom was instantly cancelled. They didn't even show the one already in the can and ready to air. Must have been over 10 years ago,and now Norm is finally back on tv,but as s neutered hollow example of the man he was.

You might look her up on Conservapedia for a completely different set of facts relating to ValJar.   Shocking different.

A private business has the right to set behavior standards of their employees who represent the business. You know, like requiring performers to stand when the anthem is played or sign a moral code when working at a religious based school.

Just because some have different standards doesn't negate what another one does. It is the right of a private business, any private business.

@AbaraXas

So,if,for example,a baker running his own business decided he didn't want to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual marriage,he should have that legal right

Meant to add, they haven't called Jewish people "Heebs" or commented on their hooked noses for a while now either.  That doesn't mean it's okay to start again.

Correct me if I am wrong,but isn't "Heebs" slang for Hebrews,which is actually what Jews were,and don't most ethnic Jews have hooked noses? What's wrong with having a hooked nose? Beats the HELL out of not having a nose at all.

Is that a real question?  Using caricatures of Jews has been a part of active antisemitism for centuries.  You're not aware of the history?

Few things are guaranteed in life. But one of them is that Roseanne Barr's own worst enemy is and always has been her own big mouth. Or tweeter, as the case may be.

Quote
I suppose I can understand how the dearth of conservatives in Hollywood might make conservatives feel compelled to just support whomever they can get, but anyone with a shred of respect or intelligence should think twice before defending a racist tweet from an unhinged conspiracy theorist. Principles should always come before party — and an opposition to racism should always be among your principles.---Katherine Timpf, in National Review.

Good riddance to a populist socialist conspiracy mongering Green Trumpist gasbag.

Everyone knows I call 'em like I see 'em with Trump.  I give him accolades when deserved and insults when he acts like an idiot.

With that .......   I want to go strongly go on record of saying  this Rosanne Barr event is the ultimate of hypocricy..  What she tweeted is far less (using ABC's language) "Repugnant" than what is trotted out there nightly between 10:30 - midnight against Trump on what loosely may be called the spawn of Johnny Carson's legacy.

The big 3's (ABC,NBC,CBS) effort to drive the country left has gone  far past Norman Lear's subliminal approach.  They have taken the war to a much higher level.  An alternate network is needed now.

Ok, perhaps I am missing something, Conservapedia and this DailyKos article (article I found while doing an image search) all seem to suggest she has nothing but African American parentage. Something is amiss, I have heard of whitewashing, but it seems the opposite occurs with Valerie, they seem to only focus on the black heritage. There is some mix (Arab or white) in there somewhere unless something is amiss (my eyes).

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2008/11/11/658175/-

BTW... for the record. I said Rosanne was trash, always had been trash and her show was trash. Some didn't care to hear it.

Roseanne or Mahar?  Who's the honest comedienne here?   :whistle:

It is interesting to note the major disparity in instant justice applied by the entertainment media when someone critical of the Left or one of their darlings makes an off-color comment versus what Hollywierd Leftists get to spew about White, Conservative, Christian, Republicans and presidents with impunity with little more than slaps on the wrist.

The Caste system is coming along nicely in this country.

Fart for freedom, fart for liberty and fart proudly.  - Benjamin Franklin

...Obsta principiis—Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers and destroyers press upon them so fast that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon [the] American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour." - John Adams, February 6, 1775

Roseanne Barr back on Twitter after 'leaving,' blames 'Ambien tweeting' after ABC cancels hit show

"Don't feel sorry for me, guys!!" Barr also tweeted, before discouraging people from boycotting ABC. "I just want to apologize to the hundreds of people,and wonderful writers (all liberal) and talented actors who lost their jobs on my show due to my stupid tweet. I will be on Joe Rogan's podcast friday."
