Some hate speech is O.K., depending on the speaker

Like the Roseanne show, this blog has been rebooted
… but not canceled (so far)

The party-line telephone here at the Stately Manor was ringing off the hook Tuesday with concern that this popular feature (Free! And worth it!) had been canceled by our Russian disinformation handlers — and that its Founder, Producer, and Chief Talent had been murdered most foul-ly. 

Rest easy, my Deplorables. Truth is, we were shut down for a day of in-Manor house sensitivity training. Not to instill more sensitivity (Shirley, you jest!), but to drum out the subtle hints of occasional compassion, as detected by overly sensitive instrumentation.

While the denizens of the Manor were being subjected to endless PowerPoints of guilt-mongering, yet another popular figure became a non-person Tuesday 05-29-18. The TV personality formerly known as Roseanne Barr, having made a spectacular comeback, crashed and burned like an Space X rocket over an almost predictable act of hubris. Or, as we used to say back in Sun Prairie, sheer dumfuckery.

Tweeting that former Obama fixer Valerie Jarrett was the love-child of “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes” is stupid, as well as racist. Is it Roseanne’s First Amendment right to say so? Of course, and the government has not fined or incarcerated the TV star.

It is also ABC/Disney’s right to cancel her show for whatever reason or lack thereof. 

Just as it is the right of the National Football League to require its employees to stand respectfully for the National Anthem when on the job. (They can kneel or sit at the baseball game, on their own time, if they wish. Or go for a Johnsonville brat.) 

Now the Squire will commit his own act of hubris, if not downright D******-ery. Some hate speech is more acceptable than other hate speech.

[ WE BLAME THE AMBIEN. As Abraham Lincoln counseled, don’t believe everything you read on the Internet. The mighty, diesel search engines at the Policy Werkes have determined that the photograph of Whoopi Goldberg originally reproduced here was PhotoShopped, that Ms. Whoopi never wore that T-shirt depicting Donald Trump blowing his brains out with a handgun. At this point, our Eisenhower-era mainframe computer cannot confirm even the existence of such a person as a “Whoopi Goldberg.”

[Therefore, the photograph and accompanying unhinged diatribe has been scrapped from this blog much as ABC/Disney scrapped the Roseanne show from its line-up. Until its writers can rewrite the character, anyways, perhaps substituting the so-called Whoopi person for Roseanne. Talk about a plot twist! We would write it like this: Roseanne awakens one day to find herself in Whoopi Goldberg’s body. She confesses to Dan and the kids that she had only been identifying as a white racist until she had an out-of-body experience due to an overdose of Ambien. 

Whoopi and Dan

Makin’ Whoopi. This image could be real. Maybe?

[But our point, whatever it was, remains. Should have gone with Kathy Griffin and the severed head.]

Golfing while black, and too slowly!

Roxanne Gay in the New York Times sees racism everywhere:

• Five black women were golfing in Pennsylvania when the police were called because the women were, purportedly, golfing too slowly. [A golfing Fivesome? FIVE?! I’d call the police on that, too.]

• Some black people were having a barbecue in an Oakland, Calif., public space and a white woman called the police on them for using a charcoal grill. [It’s California, an environmental thing. Smog, y’know.]

• In Philadelphia last month, two black men waiting for a business meeting with a third person in a Starbucks were arrested for sitting in a Starbucks while black. [Hold your business meetings at Starbucks! No purchase necessary!]

Ms. Gay continues:

In each of these encounters, white people took it upon themselves to police black bodies in public spaces. They felt entitled to do so because of racism … They felt this entitlement because that’s what racism does — it allows one group of people to feel superior to and imagine dominion over another.

Monica Adams

M. Adams

We could also make the case that PC-ism does the same: allows one group of people to feel superior to and exert dominion over another. We who live in the Emerald City know a thing or two about virtue signaling. Because we’ve seen a thing or two …

We might accept Ms. Gay’s examples at face value. We could posit that police are called on white people for equally specious reasons but those result in no headlines, lawsuits, or BLM marches. We could walk on the wild side to argue that even No Shoes, No Shirts, No Service may fall victim someday to the malleable curse of “disparate impact.” Do we exaggerate? One academic maintains:

As white segregationists in the South were placing “whites only” signs in the windows of restaurants, in the North, more enlightened (or, rather, more savvy) white proprietors and public officials realized that rules restricting public spaces to local residents and the strict but selective enforcement of laws against things like disorderly conduct and loitering could be used to impose racial segregation.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Do you really think Madison Ald. Shiva Bidar-Sielaff would have sicced the police on Monica Adams of Freedom Inc. if she had been haranguing alders? The other BLM shouters? The grievin’ grandma of Tony T. Robinson Jr., martyred by police? Of course not. 

But she did on an aging white man. No cursing, no shouting, no threats. No matter.

    False equivalency, Dave. Not that I care to defend Whoopi’s very tasteless shirt, but it was a (gross) political statement at a political event. Rosanne’s was just crude, ugly, conspiracist racism, broadcast to the world for no reason. I’d like to see all you Trump supporters offended by the racism of this very vocal supporter, but it’s just kinda what he does all the time. Apparently you have to be president before you can be that public about your racism.

    Cancelling Roseanne’s show is just BS virtue signaling by lefty ABC, and a pussy move by spineless weaklings. It was free market at work but would have been far more interesting for ABC honchos to disavow her comments and then observe the free market at work with the show still airing. Undoubtedly she would have addressed the issue within an early episode, thereby allowing Barr and her writers to flex their creative muscle thereby stimulating ongoing meaningful dialogue.

    It should be noted, also courtesy of that same surveillance footage, that two EVIL White X-Chromosomal Units tried to enter the bakery two minutes before Lillian and were told it was closed for the night.

    Back to Eden fired them because, and I quote: “sometimes impact outweighs intent.”

    Back to Eden said the employees denied the woman service and “lacked sensitivity and understanding of the racial implications at work” […] “this is more about how a black woman was made to feel.”

      This tiresome spate of corporate virtue signaling boils down to one thing: separate and unequal policies for whites (e.g., buy something or leave the premises; don’t arrive at closing time and expect to be served; no shirt, no shoes, no service) and minorities (raise a stink and get whatever you want). Wanna bet on how long it will take for your local Starbucks to become a homeless shelter that serves coffee? Kinda like what happened to public libraries, which have become homeless shelters with books.

        @Gary L. Kriewald;

        “Wanna bet on how long it will take for your local Starbucks to become a homeless shelter that serves coffee?”

        That should be the least of Starbucks’ concerns; they’re going to become alcohol-infused aggressive panhandling Meccas, the rest-rooms (ironically where this all started) will be combination shooting gallery/needle exchanges and assault staging areas.

        What will be keeping me up at night?

        With nowhere to go for their 5 adjective crappicchinos to sip while they lament following a ideology that’s failed everywhere it’s been tried, how to redistribute everyone’s property but their own, and pretending to care about the downtrodden, will @hankdog/old baldy, @AnonyBob, & @richard lesiak now frequent “nice” places like the Oak Crest, The Laurel, Alt-n-Bachs, or Bennett’s Country Club?

    Check the definition of racist and explain how Barr’s comment fits.

        You were asked by Batman to explain yourself “Check the definition of racist and explain how Barr’s comment fits”, you’ve ignored that request and now you are asking Batman to explain what he wrote?

        You haven’t earned the honor of an explanation, so no Bob, you explain yourself first!

    One can utter an ethnic slur without being a racist. For example, I could label you a sanctimonious cornfed bird turd without harboring animus towards whites generally. Barr’s comment is purposefully degrading to VJ but not per se a racist remark according to Webster, but is according to the (unofficial) Lefty definition that I’ve posted elsewhere on this board.

    In the ignoble Jeff Simpson tradition; are you calling me a f-ing stupid racist for explaining this to you?
