Notice that it says that the political position is right-wing?


Yes, I am aware that Democrats are very right wing. Are you?

Dixiecrats were. Their party turned into a Republican Party. Not saying they are racist now. Social conservatism just means they want to conserve the status quo.

It's a re-run of an American classic. TCM airs Gone With The Wind every so often too. It's a commentary on the day, not on TOday.


Doesn't matter. It's still being aired, and you can still watch it TOday.

People don't want kids reading Huckleberry Finn despite it being a depiction of it's day and not TOday because kids TOday find it offensive to read the colloquial speech of that time period.


So what are you saying? Should we ban historic classic books and theatricals that show how we used to be, because it might encourage closeted bigots to act out?



Why not? We ban flags and pulled down statues.


We also ignore how the Democrat Party was responsible for slavery in the south and the founders of the KKK.

*Dixiecrat Party
Fixed for you. You're welcome.


Hmmm...
Defending a political party for actually enslaving people, while condemning a comedienne for a tasteless, possibly racist joke that bombed.

I won't judge.

Yes I am defending a party for enslaving people. You know me too well.

See that part that says 'Split from' and then 'MERGED INTO?'

It doesn't say the Republican Party.

Bless your heart.

If ABC exercised that much control, Roseanne's show would have been far, far different from the very beginning.

So the right-wing party merged back into Democratic Party?
LOL.

Boy we are going way off topic. LOL

That is what it says.

Back in the pre-Civil Rights days all of the politicians in the south were Democrats.

Yes. They splitted from the main Democratic Party, hence the name Dixiecrats.

And the very same year they merged back into the Democratic Party.

It was more like a trial separation but both parties decided they just couldn't bear to be apart.

I can't wait for all the other actors'/actresses' shows to be cancelled who have said racist things about Trump.

I won't be holding my breath.



Is that talk of Trump being the colour of a Cheeto or Trumpkin?

That's very interesting, I wonder what her pet names are for her godson and I wonder if he would mind if she compared him to a Planet of the Apes character.

Oh My Goodness. This is about placing advertisement within the show itself. in this case, they (EBay) paid the writers to throw shade at their competitor (ETSY) within the script. It's still paid advertisement when the sponsor (EBay) pays to undermine their competitor by portraying it as an easy fence for teenager's stolen goods.

The point is that social conservatism is, obviously, a conservative thing and a Republican thing (generally). I just laugh every time people bring Democratic Party being responsible for KKK and racism as if today's Democrats support that.

The party thrives on expIoiting feelings of racial injustice to the detriment of everyone.

Just like the backlash Roseanne got today...it's all about exploiting black Americans to prop up a rotting party. I was a lifelong Democrat until May 31, 2008, when I declared my independence and registered 'Unaffiliated'.

The party is toxic.

I see that. It sounds like Roseanne didn't know Valerie Jarrett was black. I didn't either. She's retweeting comments to that effect.

Therefore, her tweet was not a reflection of *her racism*...on the contrary, it's a reflection of her critics that were so quick to judge and exploit feelings of racial injustice for nefarious political purposes.

***

ETA: In fact, I bet a whole lot of people pointing their fingers at Roseanne didn't know VJ was black either.

Well, you thought wrong.

Hope she doesn't just retweet. I'd like to hear what she has to say.

I seriously want to see her explanation behind her tweet. If she was thinking about Lola then that would have been acceptable. I bet she was drunk when she made that tweet. LOL. She's just human like the rest of us.

Well what she said was not very tastefully but Disney tolerates this kind of crass behavior when joy behar of the view says crass things like this about the president and the white house staff but I don't see them canceling the view or Barbara waters firing her.
