Larry Elder’s Powerful Valerie Jarrett Tweet Has Roseanne-Haters Freaking Out

Conservative talk radio host Larry Elder responded to the controversy over famous actress Roseanne Barr tweeting that Obama royalty member Valerie Jarrett was the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes” by comparing the remark to comments made about President Donald Trump. (RELATED: ‘Roseanne’ Canceled on ABC After Crude Tweets).

Elder found a tweet from liberal comedian and TV host Bill Maher, where he claimed Trump was “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” He noted Barr had made the “same joke” — Then, the black political commentator included a photo of Jarrett juxtaposed with a character from the Planet of the Apes film. This instantly caused a liberal meltdown!

Barr has been quick to apologize for the joke. She said it was “in bad taste” and apologized to Jarrett, along with the 100s of people who lost their jobs on the “Roseanne” production team thanks to her one Twitter message. ABC quickly canceled the show despite her apologies.

Elder also noted in his new column at Townhall.com that Disney, which owns ABC, ESPN, and Disney, also employs extreme liberal Keith Olbermann. His long history of extreme comments pale in comparison to Roseanne Barr’s single tweet:

The Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted: “The comparison … of … Valerie Jarrett to an APE is racist and inexcusable. ABC must take action NOW!” The Disney-owned ABC issued the following statement: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.” Barr left Disney little choice. Standing by her would have meant advertiser boycotts, forcing any company that advertises on her show to explain their association with a “racist.”

But what are the rules?

Disney also owns ESPN, the sports cable channel that employs Keith Olbermann, whose angry, unhinged tweets about President Donald Trump make Barr’s anti-Jarrett tweet look like a love note. Here’s one Olbermann tweeted at Ivanka Trump, Trump’s daughter: “Then tell your racist, white supremacist, neo-nazi father to get the f— out of our society.” One would think that Disney would find Olbermann’s tweets “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with (their) values.”

As for MSNBC’s Sharpton, he also said that Barr’s tweet shows that Trump is “normalizing” racism. Remember Sharpton became famous by falsely accusing a white man of raping a black teen. A New York grand jury called the accusation a hoax, and Sharpton was successfully sued for defamation. But to this day, Sharpton refuses to apologize. Sharpton helped fan the flames during the deadly 1991 Crown Heights, New York, riots by leading some 400 protesters through the predominately Jewish section of Brooklyn. Days before the deadly riots, Sharpton said at a rally in Harlem, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.” Sharpton once called David Dinkins, the first and only black New York City mayor, a “n—– whore.” Sharpton described Jews as “diamond merchants” and whites moving into Harlem as “interlopers.” Unwilling to wait for the Ferguson grand jury to finish its investigation of the police shooting death of Michael Brown, Sharpton took to the streets of Ferguson yelling, “No justice, no peace.” The grand jury exonerated the officer. No remorse by Sharpton. No apology. No cancellation of his show.

Conservatives on Twitter immediately responded to Elder’s tweet:

  • I've been warning everybody about Jarret's socialist/commie/radical Islamofascist views ever since Obozo took over. Most, if not all of Barry Soetoro's unelected bureaucratic minions and sheeple just loved Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ho, Castro, Che, …. Barry, himself was a product of a Caucasian commie mother and her family. Even Barry's step father, Lolo Soetoro was an Indonesian commie. Many of their friends, like Frank Marshall Davis, were hard core commies. They eventually sent Barry to live with the Chicago (the heart beat of American communism) family of Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground infamy. Some how Barry got hooked up with the legend of old socialist and union thug Saul Alinsky and his Rules for Radicals (1971). So, was BHO a Communist ?!?! You can bet your sweet bippy.

  • Al Sharpton - who anointed you "Reverend"? It certainly was the God of Love and Peace since you stand for neither of those sacred precepts....

  • I think you mean it "wasn't" the love of God...correct? We all make mistakes. Just thought I would let you know.

  • Larry Elder has a handle on this stuff. Roseanne has been known for doing stupid things for a long time. Look at the time she sang the National Anthem. She thought it would be funny and she was wrong, but no one died from her bad taste and no one died this time. Nobody has ever accused Roseanne of being a brain surgeon, but I don't think she is racist. She just does things in bad taste. This particular thing was in bad taste and the statement itself was a racist comment. Comedians and Roseanne in particular are known for pushing the envelope while trying to be creative. SO, put her to death or whatever it is that you want to do to punish her. Just remember "Judge not lest ye be judged" Matthew 7:1

  • It's amazing how the democrats and the liberal left want to destroy everyone opposed to them, but support their own... they support bill Maher; and "the View", but destroy Roseann...! That's the problem - the democrats feel they can do no wrong!!!

  • the comments by Maher and by Olbermann are NOT inconsistent with the values of Iger and his queer crew. He and the gang support attacks on anyone who holds views opposing their ideology. That is their values and their culture !!!
