No, this entire debacle regarding Roseanne Barr has not yet slithered out of the mainstream media’s feedback loop quite yet, with a massive expulsion of blame circling the journalism junket over the course of the last 24 hours.
Barr herself, after swearing off Twitter in the hours immediately following her uncouth tweet about Valerie Jarrett’s appearance, returned to the platform to seemingly set the record straight. What actually occurred was far less significant than the embattled comedienne planned, after attempting to blame sleep medication Ambien for her choices the previous evening. Certainly, Ambien has been known to cause some strange side effects in those who remain waking during its use, but we’re not sure that it puts thoughts into your head.
Jarrett weighed in on the controversy, being unable to refrain from exploiting the uproar for her own political purposes. Where Jarrett chose to lay the blame, however, was incredibly bold.
“The person walking down the street minding their own business and they see someone clinging to their purse or walk across the street… or every black parent I know who has a boy who has to sit down and have a conversation, the talk as we call it. Those ordinary examples of racism that happen every single day.”
But then Jarrett went to tape an MSNBC town hall to address “Everyday Racism in America” with hosts Joy Reid (ha!) and Chris Hayes. On the show, she blamed President Trump — while not naming him.
“The tone does start up at the top, and we like to look up to our president and feel as though he reflects the values of our country,” Jarrett said, sitting alongside race-baiter Rev. Al Sharpton.
No, Valerie, the hate lies in your heart. You turned your anger away from Roseanne Barr and implied that she was enabled somehow by the Commander in Chief of the United States.
This “Donald Trump is a Racist” monologue is tired. It’s boring. It’s old-hat…but then again so are newspapers and cable television. It’s time for the left to come up with some other way of attacking the President, because this constant use of the ‘R’ Word is going to wear it out. It’s like the boy who cried wolf, except with a bunch of cringeworthy virtue signaling thrown in for optics.
