ed note–keep in mind that no such explanations sufficed when an intoxicated Mel Gibson made his (truthful) statement years ago that Jews were responsible for all the wars in the world.
Keep in mind as well that the only reason that ABC has decided to ‘dis-Barr’ itself from this vile piece of racist Judaic human waste is because
1. For reasons yet unknown, she has been outwardly supportive of Trump,
2. In this, the age of post ‘Hurricane Harvey’, the fallout that would occur if they were to do otherwise.
Keep in mind that Barr–being after all a ‘good Jew’, knows full well what her Judaic religion/culture/tradition teach concerning blacks being apes, a fact recently made better known by the rather incautious comments of an Israeli rabbi.
Roseanne Barr is blaming Ambien for her racist tweets and telling her fans, “I’m not a racist, just an idiot who made a bad joke.”
She said on Tuesday that she was leaving Twitter, but she just can’t seem to log off.
After ABC canceled her hit show “Roseanne” over her foul Twitter behavior, she went on another tweetstorm early Wednesday, retweeting fans who portrayed her as the victim of a liberal media double standard.
She zig-zagged between apologizing for her remarks and retweeting memes that made her apology sound insincere. All told, she posted more than 100 times.
Among her retweets: Photos of former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett side by side with an ape.
It was Barr’s earlier tweet about Jarrett that caused outrage and ultimately led to the show’s cancellation. In a response to a comment about Jarrett, Barr had said: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
Barr still claims she was just joking when she compared Jarrett to “Planet of the Apes” and the Muslim Brotherhood in a tweet on Tuesday morning.
In a reply to one of her fans, she said “I honestly thought she was Jewish and Persian-ignorant of me for sure, but…i did.”
She also said she had been on Ambien, a medication used to treat insomnia, at the time.
She tweeted, “guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting — it was memorial day too — i went 2 far & do not want it defended — it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”
She cited Ambien again in a later tweet, saying, “Not giving excuses for what I did(tweeted) but I’ve done weird stuff while on ambien — cracked eggs on the wall at 2am etc.”
Oddly, she later deleted all of her references to the medication. Nevertheless, Ambien became the #1 trending topic on Twitter on Wednesday morning. Barr’s explanation was deemed laughable.
“I have only taken Ambien once … but I don’t remember one of the side-effects being racism,” CNN’s John Berman tweeted.
In one of her other deleted tweets, Barr said “I’m sorry 4 my tweet, AND I will also defend myself as well as talk to my followers. so, go away if u don’t like it. I will handle my sadness the way I want to. I’m tired of being attacked & belittled more than other comedians who have said worse.”
Some of her replies to fans clearly expressed how she feels. At one point she said she believes she was fired because of fears over a potential boycott of the show’s advertisers. She also lashed out at co-stars Michael Fishman and Sara Gilbert.
“You throw me under the bus. nice!” she said in a tweet directed at Fishman.
Her Twitter account had a manic feel throughout the morning. Through her selection of retweets, Barr implied that she was fired over her support for President Trump. One of the posts she shared said, inexplicably, “they brought the show back so they could inevitably cancel the show when she said something they didn’t like.”
But then she deleted her retweet of that post.
Another retweet, still up as of 7 a.m. ET, quoted Herman Cain on Fox saying “I believe they were looking for a reason to cancel #Roseanne and here’s why. Even though the show was a ratings success, forces within ABC didn’t like the fact that her conservative defense of certain things was so popular.”
Barr also continued to tweet about George Soros, a liberal donor who has been painted as the villain in many right-wing conspiracy theories.
One message she re-tweeted on Wednesday falsely accused the Hungary-born Jewish billionaire of collaborating with the Nazis.
Barr also said her firing “worked out” because she “would leave when they started to try to censor me.”
After a head-spinning 24 hours, there are several outstanding questions:
— What will ABC schedule Tuesdays at 8 p.m. this fall in place of “Roseanne?”
— Is there any possibility of a “Roseanne” sitcom without Barr? A way to keep the cast and crew together in some way?
— Will there be any measurable backlash from her fans?
— Will President Trump comment at all?
— What will Barr do next?
Tom Werner, her longtime producing partner, told Deadline.com that he supported ABC’s decision.
He said he hoped “Roseanne seeks the help she so clearly needs.”
Mr. Trump is destroying every enemy that was an enemy of our rise. Who is the enemy of our rise? Is it the Department of Justice where we get none? Is it Congress where you make a law that favors us and then you turn around and destroy it? https://www.finalcall.com/artman/publish/Minister_Louis_Farrakhan_9/article_105066.shtml …
Additionally, Farrakhan called for an end to white men, saying that their “nature is not in harmony with the nature of God.”
And as The Daily Caller’s Virgina Kruta notes, Farrakhan went on to claim that white men had squandered the time God gave them to rule, alleging that they had chosen not to rule with righteousness, truth, justice, or fairness.
So far, there has been barely a ripple from the media over this shocking statement. I only came across it through a tweet from a parody artist who claims to be a Republican representative under the name Steven Smith of Georgia.
Farrakhan promises more to come on his opinion of President Trump. It is far too soon to conclude that he is coming around to support the POTUS, but that is certainly a possibility. And his statement so far is enough to help a significant number of black voters to start questioning the taboo enforced by any black organizations against support for any Republicans. Will Farrakhan continue what Kanye started?
