Roseanne Barr: Apologizing May Have Been A “Fatal Mistake”

Comedian Roseanne Barr recently appeared on the “Entertainment Weekly” podcast hosted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, where she once again lamented that “apologizing to the Left” may have been a big mistake.

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach tweeted out just before his interview with the legendary comedian.

“My friend Roseanne Barr is in amazing form and a highly revelatory mood as she joins me to discuss the weekly Torah reading and the Promised Land. Ki Tavo. Listen to an incredible discussion and interview!!”

— Rabbi Shmuley (@RabbiShmuley) September 2, 2018

Out of the box, the interview immediately began with what most conservatives already know.

Rabbi Shmuley, “They said, ‘you made a fatal mistake … apologizing to the Left.”

Barr’s responded: “My friends told me in the beginning, they said, ‘Oh my God, you’ve made a fatal mistake, and it’s all over YouTube, a lot of people are saying it, they said, ‘You made a fatal mistake… apologizing to the Left.’ Once you apologize to them they never forgive, they just try to beat you down until you don’t exist. That’s how they do things. They don’t accept apologies.”

Barr later explained that many on the left demanding she apologize for her tweet regarding former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett were “a little bit ill-informed about me.”

No doubt what Barr tweeted out in the wee hours of the morning likening the former advisor to former President Obama to an “ape” was indeed a racist and stupid tweet – and she should have been rightly condemned for it. However, losing your livelihood while others are applauded for actually threatening the life of the president simply illustrates the pervasive double-standard that exists.

Barr didn’t invent the over-the-top discourse and defamatory dialogue. Least we forget aging actor Robert DeNiro’s unhinged video rants and his recent profanity-laced tirade against President Trump during the politically charged Tony Awards. He earned a standing ovation from perhaps the same individuals now condemning Barr.

The classless over-the-hill actor, perhaps thinking he’s Jimmy Conway in the 1990 film “Goodfellas,” began his shameful performance by snarling into the microphone: “I’m gonna say one thing: F— Trump!” he stated, as he clenched his two fists in the air, leaving panic-stricken broadcast censors trying bleep out the remarks. “It’s no longer down with Trump, its f— Trump!”

There are countless other so-called entertainers. However, DeNiro is perhaps the most famous and emotionally unhinged. His career hasn’t apparently suffered in Hollywood, although he’s no longer choosy regarding the parts he plays – and it shows within his performances.

Barr announced during the interview she’s moving to Israel when ABC launches their new sitcom minus their star titled “The Connors,” stating “I’m staying away from it”!

Adding, “I have an opportunity to go to Israel for a few months and study with my favorite teachers over there, and that’s where I’m going to go and probably move somewhere there and study with my favorite teachers. I have saved a few pennies and I’m so lucky I can go,” she said, adding, “It’s my great joy and privilege to be a Jewish woman.”

When asked about the new show and how she feels about it, Barr acknowledged, “I’m not going to curse it or bless it. I’m staying neutral. That’s what I do. I’m staying neutral. I’m staying away from it. Not wishing bad on anyone, and I don’t wish good for my enemies. I don’t. I can’t. I just stay neutral. That’s what I gotta do. I have some mental health issues of depression and stuff. I got to stay in the middle, or I’ll go dark, and I don’t want to go dark again. I’ve done it. After all, I was married to Tom Arnold.”

Hopefully, Barr can take some sort of comfort in knowing she has millions of fans in America who support her and wish her the best. Hopefully, she’ll continue at some point performing again…she’s a talented and funny lady who deserves a second chance. As for ABC’s new sitcom “thanks” but “no thanks.”

  1. I love Roseanne and wish her the best of everything.

  2. I agree totally with her sentiments NOW. Never apologize. It is just a sign of weakness and to the left it means absolutely nothing. If anything, lie and shout obscenities. Those are the only thing the left understands.

  3. Roseanne has learned what ever victim of SJWs learn – they never forgive you. Read Vox Day’s book, “SJWs Always Lie”.

  4. Ms. Barr did the right thing by apologizing and maybe clarifying what she meant. Unfortunately doing the right thing won’t satisfy the militant progressives. Apologies and explanations notwithstanding, anyone supporting Trump and/or not celebrating the progressive agenda is going to be publicly vilified.

  5. I love Roseanne,I also love John Goodman but will not watch the newly thrown together out of in your face Roseanne spin off really wish she had not given this empire away but I stand with her in this she has been nothing but kind generous and hugely giving I do not give the spin off long and even though they say it is without her it never will be.

  6. The “righteous” left will get their comeuppance, hopefully sooner rather than later. When that happens, I hope Roseanne will feel like coming home to America as she so deserves. Meanwhile I’m happy she can go to Israel for the time and live among loving people who won’t be judging her. She’s being unjustly treated compared to others who have done the same or even worse,, but that seems to be par for the course these days with the liberal left. They just can’t get over the fact that most of us voted for Trump instead of crooked Hillary..

  7. America…do you ever miss what she was?
    America, the greatest country ever, is no more. Today, we read how our values have been forced from us by others crowding into our country. Yes, everyone wants to come to America, but nobody wants to assimilate, they simply want to change who she is and what she represents.
    For years, we have seen the changes coming…were you ready? Did you think it would end our country like this? Was it worth not having security and vetting? Only you can answer that question. Let’s paint a picture…
    Yesteryear… it was the start of all things new. We played in our yards, we drank from hoses, rode in cars and truck beds without straps, and rode our bikes without fear. We knew our neighbors, and we kept our family business to ourselves. That was a great childhood. You played till the lights came on, and you went home when one person’s mom called out, even if it wasn’t your mom. You listened.
    Have we forgotten, we had stability, focus and were worn out from Monday through Friday work days, and filled our weekend’s family, friends, church, hunting, and fishing. These things taught us how to survive, skills today that most boys or women no longer possess. These skills taught us never to take more than you can eat, never kill for fun, and always leave the lands as you found them. But they also taught us our family and neighbors are important, necessary, and boundaries were to be learned. What was wrong with this life? Why did we abandon these teachings?
    Today, children are kept in homes, neighbors hate kids near their homes or possessions if they are not their own, and parenting has become so lazy, a play date must be made. Kids can’t drink from anything other than a plastic water bottle, can’t play with toys like water pistols or even skip rope outside. Most have no other skills then an electronic game has brought them. I feel lucky to have never been part of this group. I feel even luckier that yesteryear existed. Kids will never know the freedoms we had and the trust our parents instilled in us.
    When we allowed others to shred the fabric of our lives, we killed all the things around us that mattered. In America, it was no longer about the American family, and those who came here, most never wanted to be a part of an American Family. They just wanted to change the fabrics of our lives. Why? They never knew what freedom truly was in their own countries; and it was easier to test burning our American Fabric then bettering their own countries for their next generation. Destroying America was the right thing to do, because their bible tells them all must be the same as their Gods. Are we really as AMERICANS going to keep allowing this?
    Look at the Kavanagh hearings. Booker, releasing things he should not – again – to shred your American Fabric. Are you enjoying that fabric shredding message now Americans? Do you miss yesteryear? Do you hurt that your children or grandchildren will never experience all the things you did? Do you feel the weeping from heavens of your Grandparents who fought to weave your fabric? Do you feel infringed on yet? Are you ready to reweave our AMERICAN FABRIC YET? If so, stop standing there an allowing people like Democrats to shred your fabric by writing coward pieces for NY Times and senators you elect like Booker to do a job to protect our AMERICA FABRIC. Why are you allowing those who were not born here, those who never had good intentions to assimilate to the American Fabric to keep shredding your existence further away from you birth rights? What is wrong with us here in AMERICA? If you don’t VOTE THIS NOVEMBER – TO MAKE SURE YOUR FABRIC STAYS IN TACT, THIS WILL BE THE LAST ELECTION WE WILL EVER NEED TO WORRY ABOUT – BECAUSE THE BOOKERS OF THE WORLD WILL CHANGE US ALL TO COMMUNIST FROM OUR AMERICAN FABRIC. I DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENT, ARE YOU TRULY WILLING TO SHRED OUR AMERICAN FABRIC? I WILL NO LONGER ALLOW MINE TO BE SHREDDED, AND I HOPE MORE AMERICANS STOP SHREDDING THEIRS.

  8. I will not watch the show even though I love the characters on the show Roseann made the show, it’s her show I do not watch ABC anymore either. This is her liveyhood. I’ve watched late night and SNL where they make fun and bash politicians everyday. It’s her and the their livelyhood also. What ever happened to freedom of speech.

  9. “No doubt what Barr tweeted out in the wee hours of the morning likening the former advisor to former President Obama to an “ape” was indeed a racist and stupid tweet – and she should have been rightly condemned for it.”

    I suppose that God then too should apologize for likening Satan to a snake? Was it because of the color of a snake’s skin that He did so? Are we to infer that it was? Would that be conjecture, supposition, or just an outright lie? This statement in your column shows exactly the cowardly pc problem in this country. Or better put in the pc way, are you accusing her of being “racist” because she’s “white”?

    Get a clue! You too are playing right into the hands of the devil. Falsely accusing someone as if you can read what you want to into what they say and then condemn them according to your own understanding is false judgment! Do you get the plethora of passages “Go not by your own understanding”? Making someone apologize for something that they didn’t do is a shameful act. And you joining in with the above statement is no less shameful.

  10. It would be comical if not so pathetic… that great actors like the De Niro/Streep types with stellar careers behind them, cannot come to grips with the fact that ‘Trump’, being the piss poor actor he is… can be so very successful in life. Their frail egos just cannot handle this anomaly.
    The anti Trump cast cannot come to grips with someone they see as an inferior competitor ruling over them. It is truly some form of dementia they possess that has resulted from over inflation.
    I have had a lot of respect for great actors and actresses in the past but for many of them, have come to see their true colors… which is apparently nothing more than a pale pack of feeble no-minds!

  11. I have read all the replies above and just find that it seems that everyone is missing or skipping around the point…..this has a little to do with Rosanne and everything to do with Trump. I would find these replies a little easier to accept if every one of them and every reply that follows begins with the statement, “I accept and acknowledge that Donald Trump is a crook(look at his business history). He is a racist bigot(look at his written and oral history). He is a liar(look at his written and oral history). He is a tax cheat(until he makes public his returns). He is an assaulter of women and young girls (way too much history). He is an adulterer(he boasted about it on the radio and in print). He is more comfortable with autocrats and dictators than duly elected leaders(his words and actions say this). He is intentionally trying to divide the country(just listen to yourselves) and he is an A**HOLE, but he is OUR A**HOLE.
