If Leftists treated Leftists like they treat Conservatives...

For quite some time, Liberals have been trying to get rid of Roseanne Barr for the crime of thinking for herself.  They tried it with Kanye and it didn’t work. I suppose Kanye isn’t “white enough” to continue a sustained assault on his character as they have done to Roseanne and our fearless, media-melting President Trump.

In a fit of frantic virtue signaling, every mainstream media outlet and Hollywood A,B,C & D-Lister lambasted Roseanne as a racist bigot for pointing out that Valerie Jarret looks like her plastic surgeon went on a Planet of the Apes binge before he chopped her face up and put it back together....surgically.  

 Roseanne's Controversial / Benign Tweet

There was also a reference to the Muslim Brotherhood, a terrorist organization in which Valerie Jarret is intimately involved.  That part of the tweet is also true.  Leftists are focusing on the Planet of the Apes part of the tweet to distract from the fact that Obama had terrorist sympathizer in the top levels of government for 8 years.  That's another story entirely.

Roseannes off-color humor has been widely known for decades, and most well-known Hollywood comedians have made millions by telling racially-charged, controversial jokes.  The very best from Richard Pryor to George Carlin are guilty, by Leftist standards.  

Roseanne got the shaft because she is a famous outspoken Trump Supporter and therefore she is dangerous to the Lefts narrative.  Their plan: distract the public with charges of racism so no one focuses on the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood has intimate ties with Obama's tops government officials.

Therefore, Roseanne must be destroyed.

Ironically, Roseanne (like President Trump) identified as Democrat for most of her life.  It's only when their politically leanings moved slightly to the right, did Leftist begin the process of demonization and ostracization.

I don't believe the Tweet to be racially charged.  I believe she was referring to Valerie Jarret's mangled, Botox face.  The resemblance to Planet of the Apes is striking. Was it funny? Meh.  Was it true? Pretty much, especially the bit about the Muslim Brotherhood. Was it racist? That's a stretch.  Was it proof that Roseanne is a dyed in the wool bigot?  HELL NO.

 Valerie Jarret next to the Original Planet of the Apes.  The resemblance is amazing.

That being said, SO WHAT if the tweet was racially charged?  Let's not pretend that racism is beneath Leftists.  Leftists have no problem invoking White Privilege and White Supremacy.  They continue to blame the worlds problems on White Westerners.   Pretending that Hatred of White people isn't racism is a gross misuse of words.  Let's also not pretend that Leftists are too "moral" to use primate imagery to describe political opponents. 

 Bill Maher compares Trump to a primate.  His show was not canceled.

 Leftist have never been against using primate imagery to describe their political opponents

That said, Rap music is partly defined by it's use of the word "Nigga" and Leftist comedians invoke Race ALL THE TIME.  The Lefts fake outrage and refusal to self-examine is all too indicative of a staggering hypocrisy.  Why not just cut to the chase and ban the Planet of the Apes franchise altogether? Better yet, why not remove all references to primates from Human Existence?

Hypocrisy

The reaction from the Left was as if Roseanne had done a photoshoot while holding a mock version of the Presidents bloody, decapitated head.  Yet when Kathy Griffin did exactly that, Leftists cheered "It's Free Speech," "It's modern art," "If you criticize Kathy Griffin, you're a sexist who wants to put women back in the kitchen."  "WAGE GAP! WAGE GAP! TRUMPS A SEXIST!"

Just imagine the outrage if Roseanne had done a photoshoot with Obamas bloody decapitated head.  I imagine the outrage would have been the exactly same as with her Tweet:  Media pile-on, call her a racist, fake outrage and attempt to destroy her life.  

The Leftist inability to measure and temper their reactions in cases like this is exactly why the "Race Card" has lost it's potency.  Leftist are going ape-shit over a few alphanumeric characters on a Social Media App.  "Crying Race" over everything, even situations that have nothing to with Race, has backfired in a delicious way.  People are waking up to Leftist bully tactics and they're not impressed.

Double Standard

Did Conservatives claim that Kathy Griffin hates men, since Donald Trump happens to be a male? No.  That would be absurd.  So why do Leftist think Roseanne was being racist when she used primate imagery to describe a individual who happens to be black-ish and happens to resemble a Hollywood science fiction Primate?  The answer: they don't think Roseanne is Racist any more than they consider themselves racist.  Roseanne leans to the right, therefore she must be destroyed by any means necessary.

Since were on the subject of faux-outrage...let's play a little thought experiment.  From here on out, pretend I'm a Leftist as I describe these videos from other Comedians.  This ought to paint a pretty picture as to how Leftists mangle the truth by putting words in other peoples mouths.

Here we go:

George Carlin calls Black People "Niggers."

Hollywood Comedians say that ALL women are "repugnant hatchet faced bitches," "truck-stop transvestite whores," and that women should "kill themselves."

Trey Parker and Matt Stone:  Black People are "Spades" and "AIDS is a Gay Disease"

Louis CK calls Black people, "NIGGERS,"  Homosexuals, "FAGGOTS" and Women "CUNTS."

I think I've made my point.
