(ConservativeSense.com) – Comedienne Roseanne Barr has called out the political left wing and said that any refusal of their ideological demands will lead to accusations of racism.
The controversial actress, who enjoyed huge success in the 1980s and 1990s with her show Roseanne, told Tucker Carlson that “any deviation from their narrative is racist, or whatever, a transphobe, a homophobe, any deviation from their fascist boot in your face makes you a racist.” She added that she had suffered a nervous breakdown as a result of the abuse she’d endured after a reboot of her hugely successful comedy was canceled in 2018.
Roseanne, the comedy Barr wrote and starred in alongside John Goodman as her husband Dan, enjoyed the highest TV ratings in the 1980s. It reached number one in 1989 at the peak of its success. The show depicted a working-class Illinois family struggling to make ends meet. It also starred Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, and Sara Gilbert. Gilbert played Roseanne’s daughter Darlene and would eventually be blamed by the star for orchestrating the cancelation of the reboot.
The comedy was to be remade by ABC in 2018 with a new name, The Conners. However, it was canceled when Roseanne wrote a tweet that the media elite deemed to be racist. Sara Gilbert took to Twitter to condemn Roseanne, describing her words as abhorrent. The show would go on to be filmed and released without Barr in the cast.
In the tweet in question, Roseanne was accused of comparing Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape. She wrote, “Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby = vj.” She was immediately condemned as a racist by ABC’s parent company Disney. Its CEO Bob Iger said there was only one thing to do, and that was to cancel the comedienne. She was dropped by her agents and some networks even said they would no longer allow reruns of the original show.
Roseanne is one of the few TV or film stars to publicly support Donald Trump.
