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.
