I am not part of the "right" nor the "left". I know more complected than A or B. I don't like the fringy people occupy either extreme.

But the left lost their sense of humor in Nov. 2016. So I never assume a joke with them. Not anymore.

Fair enough. Good for you, you told a funny!

The pc crowd do not believe in 2nd chances. Once a sexist, always a sexist, once a racist always a racist. This what we have boiled down to in society. Both left and right is like this.

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.
Except All in the Family was about a fictional racist whereas Roseanne Barr is the living proof of it.

She is like Archie Bunker where old racists never change their ways or ideas.

It was pretty good. They hit on a couple of topics that many are dealing with today.

Wasn't this a 2nd chance of a sort? I remember her star falling spectacularly fast around the time she & her ex "sang" the National Anthem for some sporting event...

5. Roseanne immediately apologizes ... oh wait, she apologized but the tweeter, who had tweeted this timeline, refused to include that little tidbit in his tweet. agenda, agenda.

What is the single thing the left has taken from this string of tweets to become outraged about? Was it about obama spying rampantly? Nope. Was it about his secrets coming out? Nope. Was it about vj helping to hide things? Nope. Seems like much of these things had been in the media lately. So, what did the left get all foaming at the mouth about if it weren't for those dreadful things? Oh yeah, an idiotic comment made by Barr that she had immediately apologized for.


Did I like what Barr had tweeted? Nope. She did apologize for it though, I seem to remember when Griffen had finally apologized for holding up the severed head prop, the left was saying - 'she apologized, let it go' (even though she walked it back). Bunch of hypocrites on the left it appears, telling people that once someone apologizes then it should be let go,lol. And, not a peep from them about the first 3 tweets. shameful.
What in the hell?

Nobody made her tweet that hateful, racist crap. That was totally on her.

Both her anthem and her recent comment is cringy.

Actually, Archie Bunker was played as a buffoon of sorts. He was unaware of how discordant his ideas were in a changing world. Archie wasn't the hero--he was the anti-hero. You understood that you could love him in spite of his racism, sexism, etc., as long as he was on the right trajectory and continued to learn the lessons.
