The last three days have been a wild ride for Roseanne Barr and America in general. She created a fiery whirlwind of people being upset on social media that is still raging. Roseanne was fired for a tweet she made against Valerie Jarrett that is considered racist. ABC canned her by the end of the day, even though Barr apologized and begged they not cancel her show. A massive boycott of ABC is now underway and more than 100,000 people have signed a petition for a different network to pick up her show.
The petition was posted with an initial goal of 50,000 signatures, but in just over 48 hours, they more than doubled that amount. In fact, they are closing in on 110,000 signatures as I write this. Considering the firestorm others have created out there with vile tweets such as Joy Reid and Samantha Bee, it is not far-fetched to think that some other network like Fox would pick the show up. It broke all the records for viewership and would be a money maker. But so far, none have suggested it.
If ABC doesn’t want the show in one form or another, then some other network should, because Roseanne’s audience is still screaming for more. It appeals to the common man and was one of the few on television that Americans can actually relate to anymore. “Last Man Standing” with Tim Allen was picked up by Fox and will start their seventh season this fall after being axed by ABC. The show was too conservative for the network even though it was their second biggest draw. But after fans overwhelmingly demanded it is brought back, Fox stepped up and the show will once again be a huge hit and an even bigger money maker. One wonders if Fox is tempted by Roseanne as well.
You don’t have to condone what Roseanne said to watch the show or to see it for the hit it is. Both Joy Reid and Samantha Bee apologized for saying things equally as bad and they were forgiven. Perhaps Roseanne should be afforded the same grace. Americans are disgusted by the double standard they see playing out with these TV personalities. The only difference Between Roseanne and Reid and Bee, is Roseanne went after Obama’s consigliere Valerie Jarrett. Reid went after many on both sides and Bee went after Ivanka and President Trump. So, the message being sent is that it’s okay to savage those on one side, but not the other.
It was pointed out: “We’re not necessarily defending Roseanne’s comments, but we ARE pointing out a disgusting double standard. ABC allows the ladies of ‘The View’ to call Christians “mentally ill”, but they fired Roseanne at the first sign of controversy. Not only that, but ABC also employs Jimmy Kimmel, who openly mocks our First Lady’s accent. Somehow, the liberals on the network never suffer the consequences, but CONSERVATIVES DO (See, Tim Allen).”
TBS has removed Samantha Bee’s entire offensive “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’s” episode, which featured comments by the host who called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c**t,” according to The Wrap. But she still has a job. Joy Reid apologized over and over today, yet she still has a show at MSNBC. If ABC wants to commit media suicide let them, but the witch hunt over free speech needs to end. You don’t have to like what someone says. But if they do it on their own time, they should get a warning, not tanked for it. Unless they really aren’t sorry and will just do it again like Samantha Bee does.
Immediately after apologizing to Ivanka, she went to an awards ceremony honoring her and said that one word shouldn’t make everyone freak out. That the subject was Trump and illegal immigration and that is what should be focused on. Sorry, but not sorry was the message there.
Joy Reid’s show on MSNBC may not last as old hateful blog posts just keep on surfacing. At first she said she was hacked and when that didn’t work she sort of admitted doing them. But even MSNBC has limits on all this bad publicity. As for Samantha Bee, she may get sacked for her ratings and not her lousy language. Her viewership over the last year has cratered. I actually think she thought going after Ivanka this way would get her more attention. It did, just not the kind she wanted.
If just one petition within a couple of days can get over 100,000 signatures to bring Roseanne back, then I’ll bet you some network out there is considering it. Here are some of the comments in support of bringing Roseanne back:
Nicole Caleo Widman: “Why doesn’t abc cancel the view they insult trump and others daily.”
Ray Raymond: “What’s the difference between what that alleged comedian did to Sarah Sanders on television and what others are saying about Donald Trump and Melania they all get trashed and nothings done. one little truthful tweet about VJ and all hell breaks loose, no justice.”
Teresa Wilson Lewis: “I dont like what she said but there are other people who should be kicked off ABC as well. The View for one. DOUBLE STANDARDS.”
Kathy Carter: “Hope Fox will pick it up…love the show”
Those are just a few. Sounds like Americans want Roseanne back.

Amy Schumer Lays Down The Law For White NFL Players, ‘How Are You Not Complicit’ In Racism?
Has Amy Schumer ever protested gang crime in Chicago? I did a quick Google search & nothing came up so I’m pretty sure she hasn’t.
The not-so-funny comedian/NPC is once again jumping into the culture debate & is apparently coming down on the side of those who hate cops.
The Daily Caller put this out:
Comedian Amy Schumer wondered via Instagram on Friday why “more white players aren’t kneeling” during the national anthem at NFL games.
“Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders,” Schumer wrote. “Why not kneel next to your brothers?”
The actress and comedian then suggested those white players who choose to stand for the anthem are “complicit.”
“Otherwise how are you not complicit?” she wrote, adding that it “would be cool” if Maroon 5 refused to play the Super Bowl like Rihanna recently did.
About white NFL players kneeling during the anthem she wrote:
“Friday thought. I wonder why more white players aren’t kneeling.
Once you witness the truly deep inequality and endless racism people of color face in our country, not to mention the police brutality and murders.
Why not kneel next to your brothers? Otherwise how are you not complicit?
I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did.
I personally told my reps I wouldn’t do a Super Bowl commercial this year.
I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it’s all i got. Hitting the nfl with the advertisers is the only way to really hurt them.
I know opposing the nfl is like opposing the nra. Very tough, but don’t you want to be proud of how you’re living?
Stand up for your brothers and sisters of color. And the hottest thing a guy can do is get down on one knee. Not to propose but to reject the treatment of his teammates by this country.
Anyone who says its disrespectful to our military please read up on the fact that a lot of veterans are proud of what @kaepernick7 is doing and fully support him. What are your thoughts?”

Schumer, one who does everything she can to remain relevant, was also arrested protesting the Kavanaugh confirmation.
Via USA Today:
“Amy Schumer had a hunch she would get arrested protesting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in Washington. She was right.
The comedian, 37, was among dozens of demonstrators detained in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill Thursday, including model Emily Ratajkowski.
In a video posted to twitter by @bennyjohnson, a Capitol police officer asks Schumer and other demonstrators if they want to be arrested, including the camera man.
Schumer confidently answered, “Yes.” She was holding a “We believe Anita Hill” sign while wearing a green top with “This today, then #ERA” emblazoned on the back.
Here is @amyschumer telling cops she *wants* to be arrested.
Cop asks “Do you want to be arrested?”
Save this for the “I can’t believe I was arrested for free speech!” Tweet from her soon. pic.twitter.com/TLGaDAyh1T

She continued on Instagram: “Kavanaugh’s confirmation as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States is a message to women in this country that they do not matter. I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men.”
Earlier in the day, Schumer and Ratajkowski attended the #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, with the likes of Lena Durham and Whoopi Goldberg.
At the rally, Schumer fired up demonstrators, saying “let’s stay together, let’s fight, let’s keep showing up.” Ratajkowski flanked Schumer on the stage during her speech.”
Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.
Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
