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.

Alyssa Milano Says If You Claim To Be Pro-Life And Support The Death Penalty, You Need To Zip It
This woman is woefully ignorant.
There are a lot of annoying, ignorant leftists in Hollywood who constantly weigh in on political matters that they seem to either be woefully uninformed about or are just plain evil in their thinking. What actress Alyssa Milano said about pro-lifers who support the death penalty falls into both categories and only serves to make those of us who actually know what we’re talking about long for the days when the social media mute button comes to the real world. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: On Thursday night, actress and abortion champion Alyssa Milano, responding to the announcement that Attorney General William Barr had directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons to clear the way for the federal government to execute five inmates who are all convicted child murderers, snapped at one pro-life advocate, “You’ve lost the right to pull your, ‘pro-life’ narrative-talking-point-bullshit with me.” Milano’s remark followed Sen. Kamala Harris cavalierly disregarding the Second Amendment on Thursday, tweeting, “As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action.” As president, I will give Congress 100 days to get their act together and pass reasonable gun safety laws. If they don’t, I will take executive action. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action. — Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) July 26, 2019 Milano responded, “No more complacency. This is what Obama should have done after Sandy Hook when 20 children and 6 adults were murdered violently. Thank you, @KamalaHarris. Thank you.” No more complacency. This is what Obama should have done after Sandy Hook when 20 children and 6 adults were murdered violently. Thank you, @KamalaHarris. Thank you. https://t.co/bkHQXoXhXB — Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) July…
Good News! Miley Cyrus Promises Not To Procreate Until Climate Change Is Solved
This woman’s brain is a bag of cats.
One of the main problems with modern society is that all the stupid people in our culture continue to breed and then indoctrinate their children with their horrific, morally bankrupt worldview. Fortunately for all of us, actress and pop star Miley Cyrus has decided to forego procreating until someone finally steps up to the plate and does something to bring the crisis of climate change to an end. This is probably her best contribution to society at this point. via TheBlaze: In a recent interview with Elle, the former “Hannah Montana” actress said that she wants to wait to have children until said children could “live on an earth with fish in the water.” In addition to climate change and parenting, she also touched upon feminism and marriage. “When [Mother Earth] is angry, don’t f*** with her,” Cyrus warned. “That’s the way I feel women are like right now. The earth is angry.” “We’ve been doing the same thing to the earth that we do to women,” she insisted. “We just take and take and expect it to keep producing. And it’s exhausted. It can’t produce. We’re getting handed a piece of s**t planet, and I refuse to hand that down to my child. Until I feel like my kid would live on an earth with fish in the water, I’m not bringing in another person to deal with that.” “We don’t want to reproduce because we know that the earth can’t handle it,” she added. Cyrus later went on to detail her marriage with Hemsworth. “I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married,” she reasoned. “But my relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in…
