Roseanne got her show canceled today. ABC and Disney were looking for an excuse. Even though it was the highest rated show of the season on any network it had to be canceled because it treated President Trump fairly and illustrated the type of people who voted for him. It had storylines about how illegal immigrant construction workers were taking jobs away from native born Americans. It had to be stopped. They just needed a hook to do it.
The found it in a joke.
Now I am not stranger to being deleted and censored for making monkey jokes. It offends some peoples sensibility. Some people scold me. Some people call it a mess. They complain about political correctness but want to impose their sensibility on humor. Because you can't make monkey jokes. Or offend Muslims.
If you watch the excellent show Mrs. Masiel you see a portrayal of Lenny Bruce. How he got arrested for telling jokes that they tell this day on Nickelodeon. All your big libs shake their head and say how it is terrible. Well now they do the same thing about racial jokes or jokes about Muslims.
It is a short walk to a Tommy Robinson situation. That's the guy who was streaming a facebook live outside the Muslim grooming trail in England and was scooped up and put in prison for 13 months. In a minute. No trial. No hearing. Just a revocation of a suspended sentence and incarceration.
This is going to come here.
ABC/Disney owns ESPN. They decided that in order to fight the accusation that they are an out of control social justice warrior network that they had to hire Keith Olberman. Who consistently calls the President a Hitler and a Nazi. But he has a new show. Get woke go broke.
I hope someone is smart enough to pick up the show. I don't know if that can happen because some ot the ultra liberal weenie cast might not want to be on the show now. I think if they throw enough money at them they will do it. Money talks and bullshit walks. So if FOX picks it up the show can go on.
You don't monkey with success.
Or do you?
