Media bias and Hollywood’s double standard: Roseanne Barr vs. Peter Fonda

Peter Fonda recently said:

“We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.”

Fonda’s statement is worse than Roseanne Barr’s earlier statement, because:

1) Fonda involves an innocent child who never chose to put himself in the public eye.

and

2) Fonda tries to incite violence against an innocent person.

When I first found out about this, I said to myself, “Let’s see if the media pays less, as much as, or more attention to Fonda’s quote than to Roseanne’s quote.”

But then I soon realized that it had already been five days since Fonda had made his statement. So I already know the media isn’t giving it anywhere nearly as much attention as it gave the Roseanne’s statement.

I’m against canceling any of Fonda’s upcoming movies, just like I’m against cancelling Roseann’s show. (I now see the show is coming back, but under a new name, and without her. How can they kick someone off their own show? That’s just so wrong. “We hate Roseanne”s comment enough that we fired her from her own show, but we’ll still collect our paychecks for being on new episodes of the show.”)

It took less than 24 hours for them to fire Roseanne. Fonda hasn’t been fired from anything even after five days, as far as I can tell.

“Fonda hasn’t been fired from anything even after five days, as far as I can tell.”

In order to be fired, you must have a job.

There has always been a double-standard. That’s why Bill Ayers is not in prison. I’ve always said, let the double-standard linger in the air and let the independent voters see it for what it is. Just win. Let Fonda/Waters/Handler, et al, run their mouths off from now until November.

Roseanne Barr was slated for destruction from the moment when she said she supported Trump. They were just looking for a way to get rid of her.

As happens with all normal people. Doesn’t happen with America-hating bastards.

Heck, even an intern at Capitol Hill can't get fired for saying outrageous things.

Only successful people who support Trump can get fired.

I heard a bit of Roseanne’s interview with Rabbi S and it broke my heart. I wish there was some way to let her know there are a lot of us who believe she didn’t know ValJar was black. Heck I didn’t know, all I have ever heard was she was Iranian.

I hope she can come up with a new character or will do something behind the cameras because a talent like hers should not be wasted
