The left tried canceling Roseanne Barr after she tweeted some non-politically correct things about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett. Unfortunately for them, they weren’t able to completely cancel her. In fact, though they got her booted from the reboot of her show on ABC, “Roseanne,” she’s back with a new comedy special.
Airing on Fox Nation, FNC’s streaming service, the stand up special is Roseanne’s first in nearly 20 years. In the special, titled “Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!,” Barr is unrepentant and back to her no-holds-barred comedy, saying, at one point “My pronouns are, kiss my ass.”
During it, she also explodes on the growing trend of asking children what their gender is, saying “What is my gender, mom? What is my gender? Your gender is, get a job. That’s your gender.”
Continuing, she then says “What are they thinking? Ask a — what is a woman?” she continues. “They don’t know that? That one they’re asking all the time. What is a woman? I’ll tell you what a woman is. A woman is me. That’s what a woman is, okay? A woman is someone who cleans up everybody else’s s***. That’s what a woman is.”
Not done there, Roseanne then says “A woman is somebody whose boobs hang down to her knees with a prolapsed uterus from giving birth to five ungrateful little privileged b*******s that have never had to work for anything in their whole damn life.”
As a reminder of what happened between Roseanne and Valerie Jarrett, Roseanne tweeted “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” She then apologized for the tweet, saying “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste.” Despite the apology, ABC still fired her and cancel the show.
Barr, describing that in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, said “It was a witch-burning. And it was terrifying,” she recalled. “I would die many times. I guess you would call it the dark night of the soul. I felt like the devil himself was coming against me to try to tear me apart, to punish me for believing in God.”
Continuing, she then added that they’ll never stop coming after her or others that have dared offend the wokies, saying:
“They didn’t do it to anyone else in Hollywood, although they always throw in Dave Chappelle and Louis C.K. Well, Louis C.K. did lose everything, but he committed an actual [offense]. And Dave Chappelle was protected by Netflix. … I’m the only person who’s lost everything, whose life’s work was stolen, stolen by people who I thought loved me. And there was silence.”
“I don’t think they’ll ever stop trying to come after me, particularly now that I am getting the last laugh on their a**. That’s why I’m coming back. I never would have that last laugh unless I’m strong enough to stand on two feet, and although I do have to wear adult diapers while doing it, I am not ever going to stop making fun of power and its arrogance, and I don’t give a f*** what color it is. I’ll be there. Make the most f***ing fun of it that I can before I croak.”
We reported on the Roseanne special when the ad for it was first released, saying:
Fox Nation used the NFC Championship Game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the San Fran 49ers to advertise the new show and launch the marketing campaign for it. The show, called “Roseanne Barr: Cancel This!”, will come out on February 13th on Fox Nation.
Importantly, the show will be a return in multiple ways for Barr. For one, it’ll be her first comedy special since her 2006 HBO special, “Blonde and Bitchin.” More importantly, the show, taped in front of a live audience at the Cullen Theatre in Houston, will be Barr’s return to the public spotlight after the cancellation attempt on her in 2018. Then, her show “Roseanne”, an ABC reboot of a much-loved original, was canceled and her with it after an “offensive” tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a former Obama aide.
In the ad, Barr can be seen stepping up onto the stage at the Cullen Theatre and asking the crowd “has anybody else been fired recently?,” a clear and unrepentant reference to her 2018 cancelation
