I'm looking forward to the followup:

And here are the most impressive verbal yoga poses media outlets used to avoid calling the president Roseanne racist

But sure, let's continue to pretend these people are decent and can be dealt with using logic and reason and courtesy. Let's let them call their racist garbage an "alternate viewpoint" so they can whine about being silenced or oppressed or whatever.

I'm not saying pick a fight with every racist on Twatter and Facespace. I'm saying stop calling them "deplorables" and "Trumpsters," both of which they see as compliments. Stop enabling their shiat by calling it "controversial" or "bizarre." Call it what it is: racist and stupid.

I guarantee you most of them will not see being called stupid and racist as a compliment. They won't print it up on a tshirt or call themselves "proudly stupid and racist."

Calling this shiat what it is is what needs to farking happen to even begin to clean this garbage up. Pretending it's not garbage won't do anything except encourage them to create more of it.

The problem with calling people "liars" and "racists" in the media, even when they tell lies and say objectively racists things is that it opens the media outlet to libel lawsuits that are notoriously hard to win because you have to get inside someone's head in order to determine "intent" and that's basically legally impossible. This is why you will see this kind of language.

Also, when talking to regular people, calling people "racist" for saying racist things really only makes you feel better about yourself and is generally unhelpful in getting someone to stop being racist. A far more effective way to get someone to re-evaluate their behavior is to say something along the lines of "I don't know if you're a racist or not, but that thing you said/did was incredibly racist."  and focus on the specific racist action which is objectively provable instead of the racism of the person which is not.

PC LOAD LETTER: At this point, most Trump supporters are STILL not comfortable being called racists. You'd think they would wear it proudly like the Nazis in their ranks do, but even many Nazis play games to avoid being called racists. It's almost like words have meaning.


They don't like being called racists because, as happened here, people who are labeled racist often are punished for it. That's their only real objection to the label and the basis of their hatred of "PC-culture." They've found it easier to fight being labeled racist than to defend racism, although practically it covers the same behaviors.

That's also why Trump is their hero. He's a brazen racist who wasn't brought down by the label. He's living the racist dream.

Ignorant trolling.

No.  That's the problem with liberals.  You're all to truly ignorant and closed-minded to even hear what another person is saying over the roar of the voice inside your head making up your own version of reality.


If you are truly this sheltered and innocent, then here is the explanation.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, when race theories were being fomented, gorillas had just been discovered along with blacks, and it was recognized that "apes" were somewhere below humans in evolution, as were blacks, as evidenced by their primitive lifestyles, lack of clothing, living in huts, etc., when compared with proper Englishmen and German nobility.

It then became equally evident that blacks must be the result of humans breeding or somehow "descending" into apishness, especially when slavery made it necessary to animalize blacks and make them subhuman.

So calling a black or biracial person an "ape" is a racist and dehumanizing slur hearkening back to the days of slavery and Jim Crow, because it implies the person is a subhuman beast, some sort of jungle creature, with more than 200 years of racist weight behind it.

Get it now? I'd hate to think this effort was wasted.

I don't really understand how the tweet was racist.  Was it because of the "Apes" word?  I really don't understand what the tweet even means at all.  I understand the concept of Planet of the Apes is that the mistreated "lesser" beings rise to power against their aggressors, but I'm not sure about the Muslim Brotherhood.  I assume that means something negative based on how they are perceived as terrorists.

I just have no idea what she was actually trying to say.  It's easy to cry racism when you don't understand what someone is saying, like using the word "nubianrdly" in a tweet.  Maybe Roseanne is a racist, so it's easier to draw that conclusion.  I just really don't care because I don't watch any of her stuff anyway.

What she meant was a 'cross between brown people from the Middle East because you know they're all terrorists, and hmmm let's see can't really use YOUTHS here, what's the other one we can say? Wait, they're on to us calling black people monkeys...I got it! Planet of the Apes (that's subtle enough to deny but still get my point across, right?)'


No.  I understand what you people think she meant.  It's easy to get that from it, but it still makes zero sense.  Look at the woman, and then tell me how that makes any kind of sense at all.  I could say she looks like a pair of flip flops and a unicorn had a baby, and it would make as much sense.

Mirtine: "The politically charged reboot of "Roseanne" premiered on ABC in March, with its pilot episode garnering an audience of more than 18 million, making it TV's biggest premiere so far this year. Cain said ABC executives likely didn't expect the show, or its support for President Donald Trump, to be so popular and needed to find a reason to get rid of it."I understand them using this as an excuse," he said. "Yes, it was racist. Yes, it was distasteful. And she vehemently apologized.'"

I guarantee you most of them will not see being called stupid and racist as a compliment. They won't print it up on a tshirt or call themselves "proudly stupid and racist."

I completely agree with your aims and means but believe you are a bit optimistic about how reluctant racists are to own the label.


Sure, many of them are fine with it. That doesn't mean we shouldn't call them racists. They're not all proud of it. Making it unacceptable to be a racist asshole might give some of them the idea that maybe BEING a racist asshole isn't a great idea.

She was not being that clever.  To someone like Roseanne Muslim and Arab are practically the same thing, even if the Muslim in question is not even Arab.  In her limited world view Muslim and Arab are just other words for sand n---er and ape is just another word for less evolved, non Christian/non white person.  We all know this is the case because we have all seen you talk and write that way when you think you are around your own kind.  We also have seen how you all change your tune and swear it was not meant that way the instant you discover someone soes not share this pathetic point of view.  Just as I know you are going to say there is no way I know how you meant it.

Ah, I see. I can't cite, but many years ago troubles with her mental health were well known. And I'm not so well myself, currently back in treatment for PTSD.

I could say that Alien Covenant is like if Planet of the Apes and Blade Runner had a baby, but that wouldn't be racist.  I'm not sure how accurate the statement is, but that's for film buffs to debate.

TOSViolation: TOSViolation: I don't really understand how the tweet was racist.  Was it because of the "Apes" word?  I really don't understand what the tweet even means at all.  I understand the concept of Planet of the Apes is that the mistreated "lesser" beings rise to power against their aggressors, but I'm not sure about the Muslim Brotherhood.  I assume that means something negative based on how they are perceived as terrorists.

I just have no idea what she was actually trying to say.  It's easy to cry racism when you don't understand what someone is saying, like using the word "nubianrdly" in a tweet.  Maybe Roseanne is a racist, so it's easier to draw that conclusion.  I just really don't care because I don't watch any of her stuff anyway.

What the actual fark?  Even fark's filters are batshiat insane.  It is nubianrdly , not nubianrdly.


I guess we shouldn't say rigger either because that's spelled too similarly to the scary word.

jso2897: cretinbob: stonelotus: saying someone is the offspring of Planet of the Apes is racist.

Planet of the Apes still totally not racist.

Planet of the Apes is completely racist. You just didn't watch the right ones.

I can't bear to watch those damn movies. I hate every ape I see.

FormlessOne: RoyFokker'sGhost: She's not racist; she's the Queen Mother of Attention Whores.

Racists actually believe in what they say, Rosanne just says shiat to stir things up and get attention without actually believing in it.

I don't farking care. She wants to adopt a racist stance, use racist language, and post racist bullshiat? She shouldn't be surprised when folks call her a racist.

Nor should she be surprised when her show's canceled, her talent agency cuts her loose, and thousands of people now think of her as "that friggin' racist."


...oh if only it were so. Trump supporters (aka: racists) are going to believe that she was crucified by the "libruh medier" because she supported D2S.

I honestly hope her time slot gets replaced with a reboot of Rhoda (just so she gets replaced by a Jew).

Who cares?  She said some very ugly shiat on her own time under her own name.  Not agreeing with it, and feel free to not watch her show over it, but I don't like the idea of being able to get fired over something I said on social media.

Link isn't quite what I was expecting. I figured it'd be the parrot lines already tossed out to the masses. "How are apes racist, only racist people must be thinking she meant anything racist behind that"  "oh so it's bad when Roseanne does it but it's okay when that wolf woman did the EXACT SAME THING to Sarah Sanders?!?!?!"  "lol she's not wrong though, look at all the mad libs proving her right!"  Pretty sure at this point one could write a speculative book about say if Trump came out and said "I hate blacks and jews and women and gays, entirely hate them and their smelly faces", what the supporter lines would be could be so predictable as to be boring.

Joe Blowme: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: special20: Honestly, I can't really see how it's racist to propose an interbreeding of a terrorist organization, and a late 1960's science fiction movie.

People need to smarten up in this country. That's not calling anyone an ape, specifically. You just think it is because YOU are racist. That's the farkin problem.

I will say this though - any reason you can find to get offended and toss Rosanne off the air is fine with me - in general I mean.

You sound white.

What a racist thing to say, but its not when you do it right?


Well you only care if it might be racist towards whites, so you can claim everybody does it.
Right?

Smelly Pirate Hooker:
I'm not saying pick a fight with every racist on Twatter and Facespace. I'm saying stop calling them "deplorables" and "Trumpsters," both of which they see as compliments. Stop enabling their shiat by calling it "controversial" or "bizarre." Call it what it is: racist and stupid.

I guarantee you most of them will not see being called stupid and racist as a compliment. They won't print it up on a tshirt or call themselves "proudly stupid and racist."


I completely agree with your aims and means but believe you are a bit optimistic about how reluctant racists are to own the label.
