The Truth About ABC Firing Roseanne Barr

Whether you want to call it a double standard or plain old hypocrisy, ABC and the liberal-leaning entertainment industry are looking for any excuse to punish conservative Americans. That’s why it’s no surprise that ABC used Roseanne Barr’s Twitter rant to fire the Trump-supporting comic actress and star of “Roseanne.”

The family-styled sitcom ranked among television’s top success stories, and the network had already picked up a second-season option before Barr went boom on Twitter. The show was the most popular new series, garnering 17.82 million viewers to put it No. 2 among all entertainment shows in the favored 18-49 age range.

ABC was quick to dispatch Barr after she took an off-color shot at Obama-era advisor Valerie Jarret. The tweet likens Jarret to the offspring between the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” Jarret is an African-American Muslim. Barr apologized for the excessive tweet.

“I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans,” Barr tweeted. “I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.”

Apparently, apologies are only for liberals in Hollywood, and the ABC brain trust appeared eager to get rid of the outspoken conservative woman. That begs the question: Would Roseanne Barr be fired is she were a man or liberal?

Who Fired Roseanne Barr?

It’s important to note that the firing was swift and without an appeal process. In other words, no workplace due process was afforded the conservative sitcom star. That decision was handed down by the president of the ABC Entertainment Group, Channing Nicole Dungey.

As conservative Americans might expect, Dungey is a California liberal from Sacramento who signed on to the network in 2016. She oversees shows such as “How to Get Away with Murder,” “Criminal Minds,” “Scandal” and of course “Roseanne.” Dungey is also an African-American and in all likelihood decided to take Barr’s off-color tweet personally. She also didn’t consider the cast, crew and writers employed behind the show.

The gut reaction by Dungey doesn’t exactly square with how liberal rants are addressed. By taking a broader look at some of the truly heinous remarks that are tolerated from liberal entertainers, it’s clear ABC inflicted political bias.

No Censorship Of Liberals On ABC

While Dungey was decisive against Roseanne Barr, she and the network seem to have a built-in tolerance for the liberal elites. Consider some of Maher’s “Politically Incorrect” show remarks ABC has not denounced.

Everything Trump does is modeled on the mob. He’s using a legitimate front business, in this case, the White House to enrich the family.

Trump has this obsession with undoing everything Obama did. If he could bring bin Laden back to life he would do it.

Michael Cohen famously said, “I’d take a bullet for Donald Trump.” Well, now that he’s looking at prison time, we’ll see if he’s willing to take a d&*k. But most decidedly, “Roseanne” fans are calling for Maher be treated equally for his comment that the president’s “mother had sex with an orangutan.”

If Dungey, ABC or any network applied the same standard, Maher would have been canned for being anti-Muslim, homophobic and racist. For the record, Maher has not apologized for his remarks.

Fortunately for Maher, his liberal buddies enjoy bashing conservatives and the lower he goes the better. They call it comedy. When conservatives do the same thing, it’s a problem.

One of the lesser known facts is that Disney, the same company that owns ABC also owns ESPN. Despite some of the most heinous remarks made by ESPN personality Keith Olbermann, the sports network favors the liberal extremist. Some of his Twitter rants include the following.

“You are the leaker you, stupid, pea-brained, mother*&^$g coward, resign.”

“Tell your white supremacist, neo-Nazi father to get the f*&^ out of our society.”

The list goes on, but the lengthy profanities make Olbermann’s potty mouth difficult to stomach. Not so for Disney, apparently.

Conservative Women Under Attack

Barr may have just discovered the inherent double standard the left-leaning media and entertainment industry have grown comfortable with. Despite the #MeToo movement and indictment of Harvey Weinstein, left-wing decision makers such as Dungey and her cohorts appear willing to attack conservative women without remorse.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has been disrespected regarding her makeup, southern accent, clothing, weight and even called a liar about her baking skills. Liberal personality Chelsea Handler said of Sanders, “One day, she has no makeup on at all, the next she’s got like 6-inch-long eyelashes, cleavage, and summer whore lipstick all over her face.”

Although Handler is more of an E! and Netflix gal, public outcry . . . crickets.

Being a woman and conservative apparently means the left applies no boundaries of basic human decency. Make a poorly worded crack about a revered Obama—era crony, and it’s like the sky is falling. It appears fans will have to watch “Roseanne” re-runs.

  1. Man, wake up: like it or not this is where “TRANSFORMED & TRANSGENDERED AMERIKA” is headed, “US” against them and their Godless, Satan worshiping, power-mad, NWO-elitist ghouls; REVOLUTION will be the ultimate SOLUTION or consign yourselves to living a life of misery, squalor and servitude to the Totalitarian State – we are nearly there – all the while they go on living as the kings and queens that they currently are doing on the public dole!

  2. It was racist comparing blacks as looking like Monkeys. However Communism (also racist) had a lot to do with it. Liberals passing as Socialist until it become violent which it is now, is Communism.. Hollywood has always been involved with Communism it seems.

  3. You are delusional if you think Roseanne Barr is a conservative! This is the same woman who called for the head of bankers in the bailouts! She is now as she has always been–a socialist bordering on communist–she is left leaning and comes from the same pool as other Hollywood elites. I take GREAT offense from this article–she is the antithesis of comvertasim!

      1. Ah well, whether she changed or not some will dicker…but her even mentioning the “muslim brotherhood” the new “patron of North America’s noveau riche” and mainstream media is tantamount to blasphemy!!!!



  6. Someone needs to take Bill Maher behind the building in an alley and beat the living shit out of him.
    Just sayin! It feels good just to visualize this.

  7. This one of those Obama era trends. Someone does, says, posts, tweets, writes or type anything that is anti-socialist or anti-liberal or negative about the Obama’s, liberals, or democrats and they call for their resignation or firing. They attack their chosen targets by using social media to discredit them and criminalize their action and then anyone who holds any power over them, in true elitist fashion, fires them and they continue to tear them down like a pack of hyenas.
    Yet they are never charged with libel or slander and try to justify their assault as they ignore any type of due process or protocol or choose some kind of resolution. And of course in plainly biased and hypocritical fashion, they only allow their own to continue working, earning money, receiving benefits and often with one apology or a few words of regret. Often times their crimes are ignored.
    This not the way to run a democracy where one sides ideology is supported by turning a blind eye to what their own do and say, while condemning and harshly punishing those of a different mindset. It’s like they took a page from the Adolph Hitler playbook. And just like Hitler, who had dark hair and eyes, but extolled blonde hair and blue eyes as marks of a superior being and called Jews greedy, yet hoarded vasts treasures of art and gold, these modern day liberals operate with absolute hypocrisy. They want to censor anything and anyone from providing a different point of view.

  8. It’s likely that the Roseanne show was to be a platform to denigrate Trump and conservatives. It turned out to be otherwise, relying Trump people to an enjoyable show. With this turn of events, it’s likely that Soros ordered the kill shot to the show as soon as possible and for any reason, no matter how small.

    1. You forgot to mention Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Tom Steyer, too. It’s a plot, I tell ya.

  9. The firing of Roseanne shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all ABC cancelled Last Man Standing because someone at the network didn’t agree with his politics. The ratings no longer matter to the networks. They’re all about politics and demographics. CBS cancelled Kathy Bates’ show Harry’s Law based solely on who was watching, or should I say who wasn’t watching. It was their highest rated scripted drama when it was cancelled but the ‘chosen’ demographic, those between 18 and 39, weren’t watching. Welcome to the world of entertainment folks.

  10. This is goling to cost ABC greatly for their actiion in firing Roseanne especially with the lfeft wing commediens and others make very nasty comments on all sorts of media and the media just laughs at that. Well, that new show you are contemplating A “Roseanne take off with Gilbert in the lead will fall flat on its butt! Then a good conservative media outlet will come back with the Roseanne show starring Roseanne and win big partially because of the failed try of the new show. It shows only the real thing wins !

  11. I predicted that Roseann would be short lived because she is a Trump supporter. Some other entity will pick up Roseann as she is far too popular. The Channing gal’s problem is she has a little, big looking title, that has given her false confidence. The truth is she has NO self confidence, but, only a mouth that wags just like a money…….

  12. Well, I’m hearing a lot, but I haven’t heard any truth. Two things I want to point out.
    One, is that Roseanne IS NOT a conservative, only a fiscal conservative. She still is liberal on all social issues. And, unfortunately the mainstream media is purposely leaving that out of their criticism of what Roseanne said and so desperate to ties what she said to all conservative. My theory is you shouldn’t say anything or before opening your mouth think about how you would act it this barb was against you. Someone makes an anti-sematic, her weight issues about you Roseanne, I believe she would be offended. Which leads me to my second observation.
    Oh, how soon we forget. Since 2000, I’ve printed every political faux pas from every politician. 18 years of political crap on 12 flash drives. So, I vaguely remember a few insults, disparaging remarks made by members of the Obama administration. I went through my flash drives and discover a really racist remarks that Valerie Jarrett has made about caucasian, Christian conservatives. I count 5 in her 8 years as Obama’s senior aide. She made some nasty comments, she has said and yet has never apologized once for her racist, derogatory comments and insults she has made over 8 years. 75% of Americans view their religious affiliation as “Christian” from 320 million people.
    One more observation. When Meghan McCain demanded that the Trump aide apologize, I really didn’t think she should. Her father has said so many nasty things about the conservative republicans over the years and I’m sorry, but he has NEVER once has he apologized for the arrogant, condescending and contemptuous comments about conservative republicans. He is a very angry, bitter old man or the fact that those voters in Arizona who reelected him on his anti-Obamacare, who complained on how he would vote on the repeal of Obamacare. Instead, he broke his promises, voted with the democrats out of pure spitefulness. His vote should have been about the people of Arizona and instead it was made in jest and then he told his voters to go to hell if they didn’t like it (YOU FIRST MCVAIN). Not only did disrespect the voters in his state but he only did it over his petty feud with Trump. I pray to God that he’s won’t be buried in Arlington Cemetery, is for heroes and brave military men and women and I’m positive that he isn’t one of them. Because your fellow POW’s outed you in 2008. You’re a traitor, a pathological liar and a COWARD. And the songbirds keep singing, like they know the score.

  13. If you look up Valerie Jarrett’s biography, you will see her communist/Muslim upbringing and how she influenced everything obama did from the moment she met him! It’s quite un-American to say the least. And if you want to read an excellent book about communism in America and in Hollywood before and during WWII,
    try this – “Hollywood Traitors” by Allan H. Ryskind. It a fabulous book about communist and soviet influence during this period. Even then SAG president Ronald Reagan fought against it. A really great educational book, in my humble opine. And check out the website – communist party is alive arms well in the USA!
    Thank goodness we have Pres Trump who is trying to save America, our military and our way of life! Go Trump ,2020

  14. Ms. Channing Dungey didn’t waste one moment to fire Roseanne from her job. Rosanne didn’t waste a
    minute to fire darts at Republicans in the past; but many, many sitcom Democrat actors have fired nasty stinking
    darts at Republicans- especially at President Trump who has been working hard immensely in favor of decent citizens
    of the U.S. So far, I like all the positive things he’s ruled on. I’m appalled at holier than thou folk, mostly liberals,
    who hold nice, high-paying jobs that never miss a time that they can trash this president, yet liberals can say very
    outlandish and hurtful jabs at the leader of this nation. No wonder many decent citizens are turning away and
    now seeing how hurtful and unproductive liberals and Democrats have become. Welcome home to them!!!
