As the drama from Roseanne’s cancellation unfolds, one cannot ignore the irony of this entire situation. We will get to that in a moment. Without a doubt, Roseanne’s tweet toward Obama’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett was not the best choice of words:
A Bad Joke
Although she was mainly making fun of Valerie and Obama’s open alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood, the “Planet of the Apes” remark was what opened the door for liberals to use their favorite weapon: calling someone they disagree with a racist. Roseanne responded by saying that it was a “bad joke,” probably because she had realized that she had opened that door.
Most people took this as a remark about Valerie Jarrett’s physical features and hair cut, which has nothing to do with race. One could also point to the connection between the barbaric nature of the protagonists in that movie and those that belong to Islamic terrorist groups throughout the Middle East. Roseanne’s response, which indicates that she thought people were calling her racist for attacking Muslims, also points to this fact. She hadn’t even realized people were more concerned with the Planet of the Apes reference:
History has shown that comparing blacks to monkeys was something that was very commonplace in the late 19th century and early 20th century in America. For this reason, it is a natural soft-spot for African Americans, and rightfully so. However, in this case it is blatantly obvious that this joke has been taken out of context. Roseanne was clearly going after the barbarism of Islamic extremists that terrorize the Middle East, and the Obama administration’s open support of terrorist groups in Syria and elsewhere. There are many examples of the barbaric nature of Muslim extremists throughout the Middle East, such as the slaughter of Christians throughout the region. Simultaneously, if Valerie Jarrett did not look similar to the main character in Mark Wahlberg’s Planet of the Apes, I would be crying foul just like the liberals are now. Overall, it was a poorly worded joke that was taken out of context, one that is very hard to explain away with the intentions of her logic.
Disney, the parent company of ABC, responded by cancelling Roseanne and issuing the following statement: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.
There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.”
Without a doubt, the remark was a poorly worded joke with a sprinkle of political truth. The tweet and ABC’s response will always be viewed as controversial and highly debatable.
Roseanne’s Truth Bomb about George Soros and the Clintons
Prior to her tweet against Jarrett, she posted a barrage of tweets attacking billionaire George Soros and his funding of local candidates throughout the United States, which is widely known. He is currently funding a DA candidate in San Diego, among others.
She also alleged that Chelsea Clinton married George Soros’ son, a rumor proven to be untrue. However, the Clintons are very close to Soros, in a publicly indirect fashion. Clinton refuted Roseanne’s claim, but did admit that she likes what Soros’ Open Society foundation is doing for the world:
Although Chelsea plays off her relationship to Soros as nothing more than an acquaintance, many know that is simply not the case. They were seen partying together at the Gordon Parks Foundation gala on June 8th, 2017. Also, it is not a secret that Soros donates heavily to Democratic candidates, including Hillary Clinton in 2016. He has donated almost $40 Million since 2016. So, was Roseanne correct to point out the extent of their relationship? Yes. And she admirably corrected herself regarding the rumored marriage between the two.
Ultimately, Roseanne’s plethora of tweets in the last 24 hours hold a certain value in so far as they led to a renewed debate about the Clinton cartel’s corruption, their blatant lies, and Soros’ influence on local politics throughout America. Chelsea blatantly lied by stating she had never met Alex Soros. Undoubtedly, Roseanne’s intention is to wake Americans up to the well-funded brainwashing operation that is instituted by mainstream media pundits throughout the country.
The Hypocrisy of the Liberal Hollywood Elite
Many believe ABC’s response is completely understandable. Yet, are ABC and its parent company Disney being objective in their decision to cancel her show? There are many examples of liberal actors and media pundits getting a free pass when it comes to attacking conservatives, namely President Donald Trump. And who could forget about ABC’s cancellation of conservative actor Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing? Furthermore, Walt Disney, Disney’s founder, is well known to be an anti-semite. By cancelling Roseanne’s show over an improper joke that many comedians (cough, Jimmy Kimmel, cough) get away with on a nightly basis, they are proving themselves to be hypocrites. The irony gets worse if you dig deeper through the treasure trove of controversy that comes with Disney’s founding and the “art” they have created.
Here are a few examples of the liberal Hollywood elite attacking conservatives in the same, if not worse, manner:
Kathy Griffin, Decapitated Trump Photo Shoot
Bill Maher, Compares Trump to Ape (at least Roseanne didn’t post a photo)
Keith Olbermann: Donald Trump’s Brain Doesn’t Work Correctly
Through and through, it is undeniable that liberal Hollywood actors and media pundits alike have consistently attacked Donald Trump and conservatives in a disparaging manner with no consequences. Ultimately, it is not Roseanne’s poorly worded joke that is infuriating for Americans. Overall, it is the double-standard that liberals get away with on a daily basis.
Disney’s Nazi Past
Disney is known for its perfect reputation as an ambassador of fun and imagination for children across the planet. When Americans think of Walt Disney, they think about an All-American self-made entrepreneur. For many, his life story is the ultimate success story. Yet, many historians have pointed out that Walt has many skeletons in his closet, something many Americans love to ignore. The allure of “Disney Magic” is too strong for most people, and understandably so; they have created many great works that are enshrined in the minds of millions of people.
As Meryl Streep pointed out in 2014, Walt Disney was a known misogynist and anti-semite, belonging to several anti-semitic groups in America. Playwright John J. Powers also acknowledges that 4 out of 6 most prominent Disney biographers admit to his antisemitic alliances when discussing his play that depicts a rumored meeting between Hitler and Walt Disney in 1935.
With this in mind, it would be hard not to see the irony with Disney’s decision to cancel Roseanne’s show for comments against Obama officials that are identical to liberal commentators attacks on President Trump, and her prior attacks on well-known Nazi collaborator George Soros. Here is George Soros admitting that he had “no guilt” when helping the Nazis:
Simply stated, Disney’s cancellation of Roseanne’s show should be viewed as a direct affront to those who see through Hollywood’s hypocrisy and as a public defense for a Nazi collaborator. In other words, a company that was founded by a Nazi supporter and antisemite, Walt Disney, is now defending a known Nazi collaborator many years later. Let that sink in.
