According to Enews’ Samantha Schnurr & Billy Nilles, “A digital backlash arose after Twitter users caught wind of a tweet (Roseanne) Barr issued on Tuesday and subsequently deleted, reading, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” The “vj” referring to Valerie Jarrett, a former senior advisor to former president Barack Obama, and was a response to a tweet which accused Jarrett of helping to cover up alleged wrongdoings for the Obama administration.”
Valerie Jarret is Black, and also a card carrying member of “the swamp,” so, of course, anything derogatory, especially anything racist at all, that is said about her, will be met with the harshest of responses by the biased mainstream media.
Roseanne is paying for her sin, and rightly so.
However…, there seems to be a bit of hypocrisy and selective outrage here.
ABC is owned by Disney. Disney and ABC were quick to cancel Roseanne’s newly rebooted show because of her tweet, and again, rightly so.
But…, then we have the case of “talking head,” Keith Olbermann, who just signed a new deal with sports network ESPN, which is also owned by Disney.
Go back up and re-read Roseanne’s tweet, then come back here and take a gander at some of the things Mr. Olbermann has chosen to tweet about our President, and at our President, President Trump, but was then hired by Disney CEO, Bob Iger.
“You will not destroy the country, @realDonaldTrump. Go f**k yourself. – @KeithOlbermann
“We all heard you, you unhinged bigoted antisemite. You blamed the Nazi Terrorists AND their victims. Resign. Flee. Go f**k yourself, Racist!” – @KeithOlbermann
“Go f**k yourself. Then see a psychiatrist.” – @KeithOlbermann
“Turn in your citizenship, you disloyal f**k.” – @KeithOlbermann
“So people are dead and instead of condolences, you’re attacking the elected authorities, you little rat-faced git? Go f**k yourself, junior.” – @KeithOlbermann
Replying to a tweet by Ivanka Trump about there being no place in our society for racism, white supremacy, or neo-nazis:
“Then tell your racist. White supremacist, neo-nazi father to get the f**k out of our society.” – @KeithOblermann
“You and @potus can go f**k yourselves, you racist Nazi f**k. – @KeithOlbermann
I think you can see why President Trump is a little upset, and many other people are more than a little upset, at the double standards displayed here.
I personally feel that Keith Olbermann’s tweets far, far exceed Roseanne’s tweet, on every level, especially just the vulgarity of the tweets. Olbermann’s tweets are actually quite disturbing, in my opinion.
What do you think?
Mr. Iger should be ashamed of himself for hiring an individual like Keith Olbermann.
The Board of Directors at Disney should take a long, hard, look at who they have as the CEO of their corporation.
The Disney name has always represented more to me than just another company. I felt that Disney held itself to a higher standard, a standard that would NEVER put up with a hateful individual like Keith Olbermann.
Go back and read Olbermann’s disgusting tweets, then tell me you’d offer him a job, doing anything, much less interacting with the public.
Then, let’s play the “what if” game. What if Olbermann had tweeted the same things at President Obama?
Disney and ESPN have not responded to requests for comment on critics accusing the companies of having a double standard regarding comments by their employees.
