Assuming you even know who Rob Reiner is (I apologize if you don’t), I always thought he was a pretty good actor (even though he hasn’t done anything in like a hundred years). He is most well known for playing Archie Bunker’s son-in-law in “All in the family,” which aired in the 70’s.
It turns out he wasn’t acting at all!
He really is, and was, a meathead the whole time!
Ok…, just so we are clear about this…, there is now ONE show, ONE, that really is not pro-Trump, but just willing to at least have a two sided, and an honest discussion, and these liberals are losing their minds. This while President Trump (and his family) are bashed unmercifully, on multiple late-night shows, on a nightly basis, and while the other hundred network shows are allowed to pursue all of their plots and topics from a liberal point of view.
So anyway, this former actor and director, and now a self-proclaimed political activist, had these warnings on MSNBC about the new “Roseanne” show.
He claims that Roseanne and her show are a, “Pro-President Donald Trump megaphone for the lunatic fringe in America.”
(Is “lunatic fringe” equivalent to being a “deplorable?” I think it is.)
Reiner also said, “Roseanne Barr has tremendous power to use her social media to push pro-Trump political messages to millions of Americans. You have your Fox News and Sinclair and Breitbart and Infowars, which used to be considered and thought of as the lunatic fringe, have now become the mainstream media. Truthful journalists, people who are pursuing the truth, are diminished.”
(What!? One network, Fox News, has supposedly become the entire mainstream media now? What he really means is that the biased mainstream media, the fake news, now has some small level of competition, and they don’t like it!)
“Democracy,” Reiner added, “is really in trouble.”
Coming from him, this might have been the funniest thing he has said since his days with “All in the Family!” It’s actually a true statement, but for the complete opposite reasons that he thinks it is!
Reiner continued to say, “It goes back to the original sin of this country which is slavery, and we are fighting this last battle of the civil war. And those people who are the alt-right, the white supremacists are hanging on for dear life, and they’re using these propaganda tools which are not just, like I say, lunatic fringe,” Reiner continued. “They’re now invading us, and you guys in the mainstream media seeking the truth are really fighting an uphill battle. This is a real battle right here for the soul of democracy.”
(It’s just so predictable, typical, and sad. Anything the fascist left doesn’t like get equated with slavery, white supremacists, and the “lunatic fringe.”)
Asked how much ABC (or its parent company, Disney) would tolerate Roseanne, Reiner referred to advertisers potentially pulling their ads. “They’re going to have to walk a very fine line,” Reiner said.
These liberals are just amazing to me. I know that all these Hollywood types do is look in the mirror, but why they don’t see the hypocrisy dripping from them when they do is perplexing. Maybe they really don’t realize it. I guess that is possible.
After all, what qualifications do you have to have to become an actor or an actress?
A high school diploma? No.
A college degree? No.
Any type of basic education requirements? No.
Any type of Trade certification? No.
Any type of Professional certification? No.
I think Harvey Weinstein, among many others, brought to light what qualifications are simply required in Hollywood, and they have nothing to do with any level of intelligence or skill.
