You may remember last year when the sitcom ‘The Last Man Standing was abruptly canceled despite its high ratings after Tim Allen said on the Jimmy Kimmel show in March 2017 “you gotta be real careful around here you know, you get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody else believes. That’s like ’30s Germany”.
When the ‘Roseanne’ Reboot came on the scene and gained huge ratings, after seeing the huge ratings and success of the ‘Roseanne’ Reboot Fox decided to pick up the former ABC sitcom ‘The Last Man Standing’ which will premiere on Fox this fall.
Now once again ABC has canceled another successful show ‘Roseanne’ itself has now been canceled by ABC after Roseanne’s allegedly ‘racist’ tweet about former Obama national adviser Valerie Jarret ‘looking like an ape’.
I myself don’t find anything ‘racist’ in Roseanne’s tweet at all I think it was funny, also if you believe the whole evolutionary theory didn’t we all come from apes in the first place? Now think about that. How is that ‘racist’?
I believe ABC’s cancellation of ‘Roseanne’ will be bad for their business because it was one show that didn’t cater to just the liberals, it was a show that everybody could like whether you’re liberal, conservative, moderate or progressive or whatever everyone liked that show and just because a minority got “offended” about a tweet the whole show is now gone even after being renewed for a second season because of its high ratings.
Simple fact this is proof that ABC and others like them don’t really care about their audience, they only want shows that cater to one particular ideology which is not the majority of Americans.
Some people particularly liberals say that ABC had “courage” to cancel a show with high ratings however canceling a show because of a certain actress’ tweet is not “courageous” it’s cowardly, having courage would be to allow dissenting views and have a debate rather than right out censoring and snipping her voice away from her and others, millions of American regardless of their political affiliation or ideology liked the ‘Roseanne’ Reboot and how it portrays normal everyday life for millions of Americans.
I have message to the ABC executives if you’re really ‘offended’ about Roseanne’s tweet enough to cancel the show even after renewing it for a second season because of its ratings, then you would clearly have no problem giving up the rights to both the original ‘Roseanne’ series and the Reboot so another network could pick it up if they wanted.
However, if you still hang on to the rights then that shows you’re not really ‘offended’ and this cancellation was just a political stunt for this simple that fact that both on the show and in real life Roseanne is a President Trump supporter.
In my opinion Roseanne’s tweet about Valerie Jarret is not the reason why they canceled the show, the real reason was that she was calling out George Soros who donates and funds a lot of a left-wing, liberal, progressive, socialist, communists and globalists causes.
Another thing I want to touch on here since Trump won the Presidency, liberals’ hallucination of ‘racism’ has gotten worse, they see racism everywhere even when it doesn’t exist for example they now claim Dr. Seuss’ “Cat In That Hat” books (which are children’s books) are ‘racists’.
Don’t believe me? A Massachusetts elementary school librarian named Liz Phillips Soeiro wrote at “letter” last year to First Lady Melania Trump on The Horn Book’s Family Reading blog because she got “offended” after receiving “The Cat In The Hat” books for National Read A Book Day. In the article, she starts complaining about “hidden racism” in Dr. Seuss’ books as well as criticizes the First Lady.
Here are a few excerpts from her article
She starts out “Dear Mrs. Trump, thank you for the ten Dr. Seuss titles that you sent my school library in recognition of this year’s National Read a Book Day. (Sent second-day air, no less! That must have been expensive.) I’m proud that you recognized my school as something special. It truly is. Our beautiful and diverse student body is made up of children from all over the world; from different socioeconomic statuses; with a spectrum of gender expressions and identities; with a range of abilities; and of varied racial, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.”
She went on “My students were interested in reading your enclosed letter and impressed with the beautiful bookplates with your name and the indelible White House stamp, however, we will not be keeping the titles for our collection. I’d like to respectfully offer my explanation.
Meanwhile, school libraries around the country are being shuttered. Cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, and Detroit are suffering through expansion, privatization, and school “choice” with no interest in outcomes of children, their families, their teachers, and their schools. Are those kids any less deserving of books simply because of circumstances beyond their control? Why not go out of your way to gift books to underfunded and underprivileged communities that continue to be marginalized and maligned by policies put in place by Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos? Why not reflect on those “high standards of excellence” beyond only what the numbers suggest? Secretary DeVos would do well to scaffold and lift schools instead of punishing them with closures and slashed budgets.
So, my school doesn’t have a NEED for these books. And then there’s the matter of the books themselves. You may not be aware of this, but Dr. Seuss is a bit of a cliché, a tired and worn ambassador for children’s literature. As First Lady of the United States, you have an incredible platform with world-class resources at your fingertips. Just down the street you have access to a phenomenal children’s librarian: Dr. Carla Hayden, the current Librarian of Congress. I have no doubt Dr. Hayden would have given you some stellar recommendations.
“Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art. Grace Hwang Lynch’s School Library Journal article, “Is the Cat in the Hat Racist? Read Across America Shifts Away from Dr. Seuss and Toward Diverse Books,” reports on Katie Ishizuka’s work analyzing the minstrel characteristics and trope nature of Seuss’s characters. Scholar Philip Nel’s new book, Was the Cat in the Hat Black? The Hidden Racism of Children’s Literature, and the Need for Diverse Books, further explores and shines a spotlight on the systemic racism and oppression in education and literature.
These are just some of the excerpts from this so-called librarian’s article feel free to read the whole thing for yourself.
This one case of the many cases were liberals see ‘racists’ in places where it doesn’t exist, another case involves The Simpsons on which has been tv for many years with no issues. Liberals now claim the way The Simpsons portray the Indian character Apu Nahasapeemapetilon is now “racists” or “offensive” even though his debut on The Simpson was in 1997 with no issues.
National Review contributor Pradheep J. Shanker wrote an article in response to claims of ‘racism’ in the portrayal of Apu’s character, he starts the article by saying “it’s absurd to blame the cartoon character for racial slights Indians have experienced in America.”
He went on to criticize the social-justice “The most recent shallow and silly controversy to erupt in our nation’s culture wars is apparently . . . the racial insensitivity of The Simpsons’ portrayal of our favorite Indian American, Apu Nahasapeemapetilon.
You may be forgiven if you didn’t even realize there was a controversy. In fact, in last week’s Simpsons episode that inflamed the ongoing fight over the character, I am willing to bet the vast majority of viewers missed the apparent slight to the social-justice warriors fighting to get fairness for the Indian cartoon character.
Both Dr. Seuss’ “Cat In The Hat” Books and The Simpson are only just a few of the many cases where liberals see “racism” in everything even in places it doesn’t actually exist like children’s books and The Simspons which have been around for many years to date with no issues whatsoever.
