Roseanne Barr Loses Her ABC Sitcom for Insulting Valerie Jarrett – The Left Loses Its Mind

I read the Hollywood Reporter article

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/roseanne-canceled-at-abc-racist-tweet-1115412

It said Barr tweeted, “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”

The article continued, ‘Barr subsequently apologized: “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste.”’

Wow, I was wrong about Barr she is a badass.  And it’s cost her big time.  Hey maybe Fox can let her have a show on Friday night after Tim Allen’s show.

But doesn’t this make you think that there’s something in the air.  Even Progressives like Roseanne Barr are fed up with the Narrative.  Even they’re sick of having to toe a line they don’t respect.  Roseanne may walk all this back and pay some price involving selling out blue collar people and she might even get back in the good graces (though I doubt it).  But something is definitely starting to happen.  Cracks in the dam?  We’ll see.  But the Overton Window is definitely on the move and ultimately all this goes back to Donald Trump.

A Different Kind of Red Shift

A couple of day ago I linked to a post on American Greatness by Angelo Codevilla https://amgreatness.com/2018/04/13/living-with-politics-as-war/ .  I’d like to elaborate a little what I think is interesting about this article.  Vox Day has often said (and I paraphrase)  that the Alt-Right (or Dissident Right or whatever else you call it) will have arrived when the normies have shifted so far to the right that their views can only be distinguished from the Alt-Right by tactics and not by what they believe are the facts on the ground.

Well, I think I’m seeing that happen in real time.  Codevilla is a mainstream academic figure and not an Alt-Right provocateur.  Reading his description of where the country now is and what to do about it is to realize that the idea of going back to a consensus society is effectively dead.  The only question between the normal traditionalists and the Alt-Right is whether we just set up separate shops under the nominally United States or fight a civil war to establish borders between enemy states.  That is remarkable.  It should be disquieting for me but it isn’t.  I still think it will be a bloodless divorce but either way I think we should get on with it.

Codevilla goes through the various arenas where Leftist coercion is the most egregious (schools and colleges, corporate blackmail and de-platforming) and suggests that federal coercion will be less effective than it was formerly and that state legislatures may ignore federal precepts and just go their own way as they have lately on drug enforcement.  Whether he is correct about the federal government giving up on some of its control of local behavior isn’t clear to me but I do think that push back from the right is likely to increase in strength in the future.

So Vox is fond of saying, and I quote, “The Alt-Right is inevitable.”  Depending on how you want to define the Alt-Right we may be seeing proof of his statement.  And if that means the vast majority of non-leftists waking up to the necessity of casting off the oppression of the Left then I am 100% on-board.  Long live the Revolution.  Off with their heads (or at least throw the bums out).
