“You Can’t Write Comedy Like That.” ~ Roseanne Barr

Reflections Of Truth by Mitch Santell

The ability to speak the truth in America is becoming more difficult as so many are divided.

Listen to 4 minutes and 53 seconds of real truth from Roseanne Barr and if you have any misunderstanding as to why ABC Television (Tell-Lie-Vision), kicked her off of prime time, you will by the end of the clip. There is too much cognitive dissonance in America for the average person to get what Roseanne is saying in my view.

The fire started spreading Tuesday morning, fanned by a rapidly building furor in the highly volatile social-media universe. Barr had taken to Twitter to describe former President Barack Obama’s adviser Valerie Jarrett as an offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.”

Reaction was swift, from Barr’s co-stars and co-workers. Comedian Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on the “Roseanne” revival, announced she would not be returning for the show’s second season. Sara Gilbert, who plays Barr’s daughter, said in a tweet that Barr’s remarks were “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.”

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” the network’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said in a statement released by Disney-owned ABC.
