Her Character Likely Killed By ABC, Roseanne Barr is Moving to Israel. Here’s Why.

Published

on

I can’t help but feel sorry for Roseanne, to be honest.

Perhaps my heart towards her is softened by the wall-to-wall coverage we were all subject to following her infamous Valerie Jarret tweet, which resulted in the smash hit reboot of her classic sitcom being canceled and the nationwide loss of brain cells due to overexposure to leftist virtue signaling and faux outrage that graced the airwaves for a week straight. 

Roseanne has always been a bit nutty, but she became the victim of a vehemently anti-Trump media complex, the terrible combination of Ambien and Twitter, and her own zaniness that fateful night when she compared Jarrett to a love child of Planet of the Apes and the Muslim Brotherhood.

If the media hadn’t delighted in an opportunity to slam a Trump supporter for something racist so much, I’d probably be more disgusted with Roseanne, but now that her career has been ruined and the media has moved on to ten thousand subsequent faux outrage campaigns, I mostly just feel pity for her.

So I was glad to hear she’s getting out of Dodge now that ABC has shamefully endeavored to reboot Roseanne without Roseanne in the surely ill-fated spin-off, The Connors. 

So, where’s she headed now, and what’s she up to?

The Daily Wire reports:

When the Roseanne-free new version of the literally DOA reboot of the reboot of “Roseanne” (“The Connors”) airs, the former star of the show will not be in the country to witness it, she says. She’ll be half a world away in Israel working on some spiritual and emotional issues with one of her favorite rabbis.

The comment, highlighted by The Hollywood Reporter, came during Barr’s interview with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach for his podcast in which she mentioned recently cutting a record in Nashville and expressed some regret about publicly apologizing to Valerie Jarrett for calling her the love child of the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.”

Of the incident, it sounds like she’s trying to do her best to put it behind her, recognizing that she fell hook, line, and sinker for the wiles of the outrage mob at the time:

“My friends told me at the beginning, ‘Oh my god, you made a fatal mistake, and that is you apologized to the Left and once you apologize they never forgive, they just try to beat you down until you don’t exist.’ It’s just sad,” Barr told Boteach. “I should never have said I’m sorry in their world. In my world, I had to because I was sorry. For crying out loud, I was sorry.”

She continued: “People were so angry and, I have to say, a little bit ill-informed about me that they would put me in the same box where they have people who call for the death of all Jews and want to enslave all black people — real racists that actually exist.” In this “unprecedented period in American history,” she said, people need to arm themselves with facts rather than acting on their emotions.

She might be nutty, but she couldn’t be more correct about that–her Twittergate episode is one of the most embarrassing incidents of emotional outrage the Trump era has seen yet.

So, what will she be up to in Israel? Working on her spiritual and emotional health, and trying to avoid bitterness towards ABC’s attempt to carry on her legacy without her:

Barr said she has the opportunity to study for a few months under one of her favorite teachers, something she described as “my great joy and privilege to be a Jewish woman.”

Barr said that while she holds no ill will for the show or those making it, she doesn’t plan on watching it, nor does she want to suffer through hearing commentary about it — which she predicted would inevitably involve trashing her.

There’s a big world out there beyond Hollywood, and we certainly hope that Roseanne finds what she’s looking for.

Accused Sexual Assaulter Chris Cuomo says Trump Supporters are ‘Not Good People’

What’s the one about the glass houses and the stones?

Chris Cuomo

Well it takes one to know one, as they say.

Chris Cuomo, CNN primetime anchor and a man accused of sexually groping his former boss in 2005, has now taken a pot-shot at the entirety of the MAGA-verse, in a tone deaf rant on his television program.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Monday during the opening of his show “Cuomo Prime Time” that Republicans were “all-in” on former President Donald Trump’s claims he won the 2020 election.

Cuomo said, “We’ve never seen one party in this damnable two-party system that we insist on go all-in on a lie. So half of your political system is invested in a lie. That’s happening. It’s not just Trump. The whole party practically backs actively or passively, selling that the election was not legitimate.”

And then…

On Democrats’ objection to elections, Cuomo said, “Questioning is different than finding no proof and then lying and refusing to certify. That’s what Trump and Co. did. There are not good people on both sides of this argument. And I will be dammed if I sit by and don’t say this as plainly as possible because this will be remembered. There are not good people on both sides. This is not a good faith dispute. It is bad faith. They know the election was not rigged. They know it was legitimate. Anyone telling you with full knowledge that they have no proof and yet the election wasn’t legit is part of an effort that may lead us to an all-time low.”

Once again, the network has proved that their editorial programming is little more than a series of purposefully-inflammatory rhetoric meant to sell commercials.

Jamie Lee Curtis Adds January 6th Sub-Plot to New ‘Halloween’ Movie

Wait…what?!

Published

on

Hollywood has long been filled with liberal narratives and radical leftist ideology.  The wealthy elites who inhabit the culture, city, and industry of Tinsel Town lean left more consistently than that tower in Pisa, Italy.  Americans have learned to live with this, just so long as the work they produce isn’t overtly politically charged or hateful toward certain cultural demographics.

This week, however, one of Hollywood’s most famous actresses has suggested that her latest schlocky horror movie is actually a high-brow take on the January 6th insurrection.

In a interview with filmmaker Eli Roth on the “History of Horror” podcast, Jamie Lee Curtis explained that the last two Halloween movies — Halloween in 2018 and Halloween Kills, which opens Friday — are part of a planned trilogy she is making with director David Gordon Green.

Curtis said the 2018 Halloween movie reflected the themes of the #MeToo movement, including the notion of women seizing power.

“[When] we were launching the 2018 movie, it was right in the center of the MeToo movement,” she said. “And so women taking power and speaking truth to power and voicing their experiences as trauma victims was echoing all over the world when we released that movie — a movie about a woman taking power from her trauma against her oppressor.”

Listen Below:

“So I think there was this spectacular confluence of life and evolution of women and Laurie Strode coming to grips with Michael Myers.”

Halloween Kills picks up on the same night where the previous movie ended, with a wounded Laurie Strode (Curtis) fleeing her burning house.

“The second movie is about mob violence,” the actress said.

And then…

“We have just in America watched a mob descend on January 6 with nooses and stun guns and members of Congress in the building,” she continued. “And we all watched it on TV.”

Curtis described the new movie as the story of a “mob descending together,” comprised of people who are going “to take matters into their own hands.”

The movie itself has garnered less than enthusiastic reviews, with one critic going so far as to say that the series appears to be “stuck” in 1978.
