OTOH, when a liberal says something adhorant, they rarely have to pay such severe consequences like the professor who called Barbara Bush a racist and was not fired.
Calling someone a racist is fundamentally different than being a racist.

Kathy Griffith got fired from every one of her jobs. So, yeah, they do pay a price.


Roseanne is a fool and she just ruined it for all of the cast. IF I were the president of ABC - I wouldn't want that Roseanne representing me either.


It's not the LEFT. It's the fault of Roseanne - period - full stop. Stop whining; it's no one's fault but her own. Such a fine line to walk - to appeal to the crazier of the MAGA set - yet not offend the person WHO SIGNS YOUR PAYCHECK.


How long do you think my employer would let me stay on if I represented his company in that manner?


Pfft. My heart bleeds.

I don't agree with the climate of unforgiveness. ABC is just responding to that climate. Their statement about company values is a load of crap. They only value viewership.

Roseanne has apologized and said her comment was a stupid thing to post. What more can she do? Nothing. She wasted her time even apologizing. The sentence has already been carried out.

Probably so, it seems to be the place where some racists have ended up.

I repeat - it was after Midnight and an hour long rant across several twitter accounts.

I don't watch much TV, didn't watch her show in the past and not the current show - although I was thinking about it as I thought All in the Family was one of the best written shows ever on TV.

That was a different time ...... we didn't have The Outrage of the Day and we did have real Education in schools.
Different time indeed.

It depends on the content and context. If it is during off hours no. During work hours yes. This is the reason why unions are important in today's America. If the content and context is full of hate. Than can them.

Do people really think this tweet is as bad as what Kathy Griffin did and continues to do ?

What she said was horrible. But pardon her? Since when did making racist comments in a tweet become a criminal offense?


I know the far left would love to have certain thoughts made criminal but come on.



As it should be the court of public opinion as well as capitalism took care of the issue.
