I read the Hollywood Reporter article
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.
So, after the success of the Roseanne revival and realizing that the Tim Allen character was also a Trump supporter and that the show had an eight million strong audience Fox which produced the show for ABC has decided to revive it. https://decider.com/2018/05/14/fox-explains-last-man-standing-renewal/
I liked the show. But it was already in its sixth season and the plots were feeling kind of thin. Also most of the political shots at Obama had evaporated and the wife actually was a Hillary fan so that was pretty rough. But I think that since they’re bringing it back on the strength of the Roseanne phenomenon that maybe they’ll amp up the Trump love and compete for the conservative voters. That could work out very well. Tim Allen could really get some mileage playing both sides of the Trump card. Playful shots at the larger than life Trump persona and skillful savaging of the anti-American left would go a long way toward giving the right the kind of red meat they haven’t had from television since … never?
So, welcome back Mike Baxter, long may you vlog from your office at Outdoorsman. And even if it only lasts for a year or two it’s the first time ever that a show came back because it was conservative. What’s next flying pigs?
The recent furor over the large audience for Roseanne Barr’s tv show and the rumor about Fox resurrecting Last Man Standing got me thinking about what it would be like if TV and the Movies produced a certain amount of product every year for troglodytes like me. And let me try to be precise. I don’t mean generic action or sci-fi shows where the eighty-pound magic girl kung-fu-fights her way through acres of white South African and Serbian villains. And I don’t mean family drama about blue collar guys who clean up after a hard day on the construction site and strut their stuff on the local drag-queen circuit.
So that’s what I don’t want. But what would I prefer? You know, it’s been so long since there was a choice other than weirdo-liberation of the week tv that I actually have to imagine what it would be. Well, for a start how about a tv family where Mom stays home with the kids and Dad goes to work? And how about a family where everyone is heterosexual or even better let’s just say normal? And how about the words gay, lesbian or trans never come up? And imagine if there are no disgruntled minorities aggrieved about the name of the school being Washington or Jefferson? And how about if no one forces the boys’ baseball team to add a girl to the squad for “fairness?” And imagine if we never have to hear about “Black Lives Matter” or “White Privilege?” Suppose gun control and hate speech are unknown ideas? And just to round things out, if we never mention Obama, Al Gore or Climate Change I’ll be happy.
You know what was a pretty good sit-com? “Home Improvement” was actually almost perfect. Innocuous comedy, family warmth and chemistry between the actors playing the family. What else do you need? And here’s a thought, when Tim Allen already has a popular family show on tv, why not try supporting the show instead of cancelling it when it’s near the top of the ratings for its viewing night? ABC, you are truly hopeless. Walt Disney must be spinning in his grave.
Now as for action-adventure, just have Americans blowing up foreigners and space aliens and pretty much I’m there. Did I mention I don’t need any sexual weirdos or racial politics? Good. Try to remember it and I’ll go see your movies.
But who am I kidding? Hollywood would rather go broke than support normal values. They have too many friends in the LGBTQ weirdo network to turn back now. So, this whole arc must be allowed to reach its inevitable conclusion. In a few more years when Hollywood has completely lost the normal people someone will start over with the things I mentioned above and low and behold the people will beat a path to their door. Hopefully that will put the last nail in the coffin of Hollyweird.
A nice little review of the various entertainment news and events lately. One little tidbit I hadn’t heard is that Fox is thinking of reviving ABC’s cancelled show “Last Man Standing.” Now thqt woud be sweet. I’ll bet Tim Allen would go out of his way to heap mockery on the leftists who demanded his show end when Trump won the White House.
