WorldNetDaily is arguing that the real victim of Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett is ... Roseanne Barr.
An anonymously written May 29 WND article on the post-tweet aftermath stated only that Barr "tweeted an insult of Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama’s confidante. The bulk of the article, though, was devoted to "public shaming" of people who commit offensive behavior, with particular focus onone writer's lament about lives being ruined by "mass social justice"and a dismissal of a New York lawyer's tirade against two women who were speaking Spanish as merely "politically incorrect."
Then, WND's columnists felt the need to weigh in. Barbara Simpson approved of Barr's insult: "I thought it was funny in a twisted, insulting way. And I still do. It’s awful and insulting and in bad taste, but it is morbidly funny."
Simpson then rushed to blame everyone else but Barr -- the president of ABC Entertainment for being "the first black entertainment chief of a major broadcast network" ("That wouldn’t be a politically correct question to ask – but it is out there") and Ambien, a defense Barr offered that Simpson readily embraced. "Given the acknowledged side effects of Ambien, it is entirely possible that Roseanne Barr could have done those tweets while under the influence of the drug and not have any recollection of it," she wrote, adding, "Despite the reality of Ambien, Roseanne was cut no slack."
Simpson concluded: "I would submit If Roseanne Barr is guilty of anything, it’s stupidity. She’s had a career of insulting all kinds of groups, from political to religious to racial. And so far, she has gotten away with it because it’s done under the banner of comedy."
Then, Jesse Lee Peterson weighed in, defending Barr because she -- yes, he said this -- really does look like an ape. Then he descended straight into Obama derangement:
Why such strong, sudden moves by elitist media giant ABC? Roseanne put out a funny tweet discussing a Wikileaks report about the corrupt Obama administration. Valerie Jarrett’s name came up – a wicked woman who was Barack Obama’s senior advisor. Roseanne wrote on Twitter in the early morning hours Tuesday: “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj” – meaning Valerie Jarrett.
Many people, including Roseanne apparently, didn’t know that Valerie Jarrett is mixed-race “black.” People do know Jarrett wears short, straight hair not unlike a “Planet of the Apes” movie character. Many also know Jarrett was born in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The “Fallen Messiah” Barack Obama and his allies oppressed and marginalized Christians, but supported and covered for Muslims any time Jihadists committed terror attacks.
Peterson's rant continued:
This is an unjust and un-American public lynching of Roseanne Barr, meant to shut white people up and put fear in them. The media made sure everybody called her funny tweet “racist,” overreacting and emotionalizing the situation to make it seem so important and “abhorrent.” Even normally down-to-earth conservatives called her tweet “racist.” Logically, her tweet was either fair or inappropriate – but it was not “racist,” and she had a right to say it. Shamefully, Roseanne apologized repeatedly and profusely. Stop apologizing to the children of the lie!
They don’t care when President Trump is called an “orangutan,” or when black conservatives are called monkeys. It is acceptable to hate whites and Trump supporters. It’s a double standard. They falsely labeled Republicans “Nazis” and the Tea Party “racists” and “terrorists.” The word “racist” is more dehumanizing and destructive to whites than the so-called “N-word” is to blacks. The only solution is for whites to drop their fear.
The left seeks to regain power through intimidation of white people, the people who most support truth and freedom in America.
