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

Published

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.

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

Published

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…

Tuckers Crosses Blue Line, Attacks Capitol Police Officer Set to Testify at Capitol

The officer’s lawyers were quick to respond.

Tucker Carlson

It is well understood that passion is a large part of the punditry game.  Human beings want to know that the person delivering their news is invested in the story, (for some reason), and the primetime players are all very aware of this fact. But there are times in which the rabbit hole that they’re chasing stories down becomes too dark, too cavernous for even the most skilled orator, or the fastest on-their-feet thinkers that we have. Sometimes things go a little far in the mainstream media, and the nation at large leers in to rebuke the extremes. Tucker Carlson may very well be having one of these moments. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson sparked outcry Wednesday night when he called Black Capitol police officer Harry Dunn an “angry left-wing political activist.” “On Tuesday, [House Speaker Nancy] Pelosi will call on police officer Harry Dunn. Dunn will pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community, but it turns out Dunn has very little in common with your average cop. Dunn is an angry, left-wing political activist,” said Carlson, referring to Dunn’s forthcoming testimony in front of the Congressional committee converged to investigate the deadly Jan. 6 riot. He pointed to social media posts Dunn, who is Black, has made about racism before. The backlash came swiftly. Dunn’s lawyers, David Laufman and Mark Zaid, released a statementWednesday night that read, “Tonight Fox News allowed its host Tucker Carlson, who has not served a day in uniform, whether military or law enforcement, to criticize the heroism and service of African-American U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Our client has served 13 years in law enforcement and on January 6, 2021, fought against an insurrectionist violent crowd — no doubt many of them Carlson’s supporters — to protect the lives of our elected officials, including…
