Was ABC Justified in Cancelling Roseanne’s Show? Yes and No

I submit to you that the public face of Disney/ABC’s decision is not all there is too it.

(The Olive) I want to be clear from the outset here so there are NO misunderstandings. Roseanne’s tweet concerning Valerie Jarrett was way out of line and I condemn it without reservation. That does not mean I condemn Roseanne personally – I do not and I will not.

I won’t pretend to know why Roseanne said what she did, nor will I pontificate on the possible reasons why. Here is what I do know; that those on the left will never admit – if I (and anyone else) were to condemn Roseanne for one utterly foolish comment, (or deed) then applying the same standard, I would by necessity have to condemn myself as well, many times over.

Because of one insulting, derogatory, and stupid tweet, ABC cancelled Roseanne’s show. Was ABC justified in doing this? Yes and no. ABC has every right to cancel any show they want to on their network, it’s that simple – but what was the reasoning behind the decision? I submit to you that the public face of Disney/ABC’s decision is not all there is too it.

From Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment: “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. (source)

So Roseanne’s comments were inconsistent with Disney/ABC standards, and axing Roseanne was the right thing to do. Really? This writer is not buying what ABC is selling. In fact, I’m going to say that ABC is full of it. Disney/ABC is inconsistent in their decisions and they play favoritism in a huge way.

Here are some responses on Twitter that prove my point:

 


As you can see, there are a lot of people who do not agree with ABC’s decision to cancel Roseanne. Granted, Roseanne’s tweet comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape etc. is indefensible. At the same time, is it ok for Jimmy Kimmel to insult the First Lady for her accent while reading to children? How about Kimmel’s old routine where he asked women to grab his crotch and put their mouth on it? This is the kind of “talent” ABC hires.

Roseanne has to go, but Joy Behar of The View can insult Mike Pence, Vice President of the United States for his Christian views saying Pence’s views are a “mental illness.” There is often a double standard on The View, but apparently that is fine with ABC – that is not a surprise since ABC and it’s parent company Disney are solidly left-wing.

Then there is this absolutely disgusting foul-mouthed degenerate; one Keith Olbermann, who is employed by ESPN – also owned by Disney. Remember Roseanne was summarily tossed out the door for comparing Valerie Jarrett to an ape, butOlbermann’s multiple foul-mouthed tweets aimed at President Trump are apparently ok with Disney as ESPN just hired Olbermann again! But it’s ok because Olbermann is a liberal.

One more example of left-wing bias – Samantha Bee, ever hear of her? Samantha has a cable network show on TBS. Recently, sweet as honey Samantha referred to Ivanka Trump using the C word for female anatomy. NO woman should EVER be called by that name. Needless to say, Samantha Bee still has her show. Why is Samantha allowed to get away with this? Ari Fleischer has the perfect answer:

Ari Fleischer, the White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, wrote on Twitter, “There’s no uprising against Bee. Why? Because she is liberal.” (source)

While everyone is crying racism over Roseanne’s tweet, there is this observation from Twitter I thought was spot on:

I personally find the View with behar and sadly Whoopie (cause I still love her as an actress) spew more hate. Their words carry more racist undertones than any other show on abc [sic] (source)

Yeah, but you have to understand! If you are in the left’s bailiwick, then anything you say goes, or if you are actually called out on it, you need only give an insincere apology and it’s all good. If however you are conservative, you are strung up by your toes, eviscerated at length, and hung out to dry with an industrial sized air dryer pointed at you.

Or, one could simply say there is rampant favoritism and colossal political correctness.

Channing Dungey, President of ABC Entertainment said, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”

Is that a fact? Let’s look at the so-called values of Disney/ABC:

The Christian concert Night of Joy was cancelled by Disney after being an annual event for over 30 years. Reason why? In the interest of “continually changing our offerings.”

Disney remade one of it’s classics made for children with a scene in it that was not only homosexual, but featured the beast as a depiction of Baphomet. For those that do not know, Baphomet is a representation of Satan.

In 2015, Disney the parent company of ABC decided to develop a sitcom based on a homosexual activist/X-rated gay sex columnist – despite high pressure not to do so.

Recently I wrote about the Disney Channel featuring a hit show called Andi Mackthis popular show geared towards kids/teens features an openly gay character exploring his homosexuality.

Again, I’m not defending Roseanne’s tweet, but at the same time ABC’s decision on her show seems to this writer to be two-faced and over the top.

Roseanne is essentially fired by ABC for an insulting tweet, while others at ABC can be just as insulting if not more so, vulgar, nasty, and racist, and nothing happens to them – why? because they are liberals with liberal privilege.

Other Hollywood self-righteous clowns are busy trashing Rosanne while being guilty of their own not-so-clean views and comments.

Disney/ABC condemns Roseanne while tolerating all kinds of poor behavior and vicious comments from its staff. As well, Disney is indoctrinating children to believe that homosexuality is perfectly normal and ok – well, it’s not.

Disney/ABC as well as others trashing Roseanne should take a good honest long look in the mirror – they may not like what they see.

Minnesota is once again on fire, this time due to the death of Daunte Wright at the hands of now-former police officer Kim Potter. Potter pulled her gun on Wright, but meant to fire her taser. Is the MSM asking why Potter was forced to pull out a weapon in the first place? Meaning, what actions did Wright take that made Potter act? Wright couldn’t have been resisting arrest, right? He was completely compliant…right!?? It’s all a moot point, now. And the Gopher State will continue to burn. From Fox News: Daunte Wright, the 20-year-old Black man shot by a police officer in a Minneapolis suburb Sunday afternoon, had an open warrant for his arrest related to an aggravated armed robbery attempt when he was killed, according to court records. Wright and another man, identified as Emajay Maurice Driver, a high school acquaintance, had both been charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in a December 2019 incident in Osseso, Minnesota, Hennepin County District Court documents obtained by Fox News show. Here’s a little bit more, but CLICK THE Fox News LINK ABOVE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY!! JUST DO IT! Around 2:30 a.m., two women at the home told Wright and Driver they needed to leave, but the two men said they did not have a ride, the documents say. The women reportedly allowed Wright and Driver to spend the night. In the morning, one of the two women left the apartment to get $820 in cash to pay the other for rent. After paying the rent, she left for work. […] Wright then allegedly choked the woman while trying to pull the cash out from under her bra, where she had tucked it away. https://twitter.com/_mattmckinney/status/1382362210702290952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1382362210702290952%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-brooklyn-center-police-officer-to-be-charged-with-2nd-degree-manslaughter%2F BLM and lefties are always, always, always defending criminals.

Dem-Controlled House Unveils ‘Court Packing’ Legislation, Want 13 Justices on SCOTUS

Just 13? Why not 19? Better yet, 89!!! SMH.

All politicians are crooked. That isn’t exactly a secret. But at least Republicans actually love their country. That’s a huge difference. Not great, but it’s something. These Democrats, though, only care about one thing. They crave it, in fact. Complete control. From Fox News: Democratic lawmakers are set to unveil legislation Thursday to expand the number of justices on the Supreme Court. More from The Intercept: The bill would add four seats to the high court, bringing the total to 13 from the current nine. The bill is led by House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler, Subcommittee chair Hank Johnson, and freshman Rep. Mondaire Jones. In the Senate, the bill is being championed by Ed Markey of Massachusetts. The number of justices on the Court, which is set by Congress, has fluctuated throughout the course of the nation’s history, reaching as many as ten seats before settling on nine in 1869. In 2016, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that, if Hillary Clinton were elected, the Republican Senate should keep Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat empty, effectively bringing the number of justices down to eight. Republicans currently hold six seats, while Democrats hold just three. Republicans were able to solidify control of the Court under former President Donald Trump, after first refusing to advance Merrick Garland’s nomination under former President Barack Obama, and then confirming Justice Neil Gorsuch after Trump’s election. Then, after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died in September 2020, Republicans threw out the procedures they had previously embraced and confirmed Justice Amy Coney Barrett in a matter of weeks. By expanding SCOTUS under a radically far-left president, socialists liberals will be able to ensure they get their way on every issue – all. the. time. That is, of course, GOD-willing, until a Republican gets back into the White House. If that…
