How regressives seem to never experience consequences for their actions, if we're being honest.

Like how Kathy Griffin wasn't cut off from hosting CNN New Years' Eve shows ever. Like how NFL teams are never fined if their players kneel during the anthem.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be proof of a pan-Islamic plot and Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand, crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of mentally ill lone wolves who do not represent their professed belief system at all.
The probability of someone secretly participating in homosexual acts is directly proportional to the frequency and loudness of their publicly professed disapproval and/or disgust for homosexuality.
If Donald Trump accuses an individual of malfeasance without evidence, it is almost a certainty either he or someone associated with him has in fact committed that very same malfeasance to a greater degree.

Right wingers sneered when Joy Reid attributed her past homophobic writings on hacking. But now...

Roseanne Barr blames sleep aid Ambien for racist tweet

Does Ambien count as an opioid?

No, not at all. I don't consider myself a year ago stupid. Most people who support President Trump are just the same as people who don't.


We'll agree to disagree. Anyone who supports that man as president is either incredibly uninformed, unintelligent or immoral. No one can support someone like that without having a fundamentally different sense of right and wrong to what is considered normal in a developed society. That will probably be seen as bigoted by trump supporters but that doesn't make it untrue and I'm happy to be intolerant of intolerance.

You can say that about the entire Republican Party at least on a national level and in a number of states. No one can support a party like that without having a fundamentally different sense of right and wrong to what is considered normal in a developed society either. I myself am sick of the tolerating the intolerable as well.

Oh shut it, would you?

What Barr said was reprehensible (this should not need to be argued) and no sane studio would keep that damage to their brand, not least of all one owned by the Mouse. You cannot blame everything on SJWs and its fucking ridiculous how much of a scapegoat you see them as.


You are clearly triggered.

What is it about Barr's comment you find so utterly capital punishment worthy? The show is meant to represent a white working class family. Ie. people who make those type of jokes.

What she said was reprehensible and ABC has every right to not want to be associated with a bigot like her. What's even more depressing is people with her views are a larger demographic than I imagined and they feel its now ok to spew their bile.

Ok, so?

The other 499 people on the project are not responsible for her views.

Regardless, the show is meant to represent white working class Americans. It did.

Every white working class person is not a racist, bigoted anti semite like her and it is Abc's right to cancel her show.

And some Hollywood people say awful things too but they are not racist bigots like her.

Trump’s Perpetually Drowsy Trade Czar is Having Trouble Making Friends

At the start of this week, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross was likely full of hope. Despite the fact that his stock in the White House had plummeted, and he’d gone from one of Donald Trump’s favorite Cabinet members to being humiliated in front of his colleagues in the Oval Office, the former investment manager had been granted permission to participate in trade talks in China, after previously having the president tell him “your understanding of trade is terrible.” With the upcoming negotiations, scheduled to begin on Saturday, Ross, who’s had trouble staying awake during meetings of late, presumably saw an opportunity to win Trump back, and return to those happy days when the president was calling him a “killer” instead of reaming him out and questioning his “intelligence and competence.” Unfortunately for ole Wilbur, his planned comeback has hit a giant orange roadblock.

The Wall Street Journal reports that thanks to Trump’s surprise decision to move ahead with tariffs on Chinese imports roughly one week after suspending them, this weekend’s settlement talks might not happen. Beijing, caught off guard by the 180 from Washington, is said to be understandably pissed about being jerked around by Team Trump, with Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying saying on Wednesday, “Every flip-flop and U-turn is simply depleting and squandering [U.S.] credibility.” Though Lester Ross, head of the policy committee of the American Chamber of Commerce in China (and no relation to Wilbur) characterized the announcement as simply a “negotiating step,” critics in Beijing believe Trump’s dealmaking tactics are getting old, and fast. “Trump overplayed this ‘unpredictability’ strategy,” Mei Xinyu, an analyst at a think tank affiliated with China’s Commerce Ministry, wrote in an article for People’s Daily. “Since the U.S. side can talk about imposing tariffs again, we can also put forward our previously published retaliation lists,” Mei added, suggesting that China hit back with tariffs on soybeans, sorghum, and other goods produced by farmers in Trump country.

No they didn't, neither did Disney/Viacom have to stop airing reruns on their networks for syndication.

Yes they did. Disney does not have to give airtime to a bigot.
