It is axiomatic that if it weren’t for double standards the Left wouldn’t have any standards at all. That shouldn’t be surprising given that ever since the Soviet October Revolution was in it’s blood soaked cradle the Marxist Mother Lovers have accused their opponents of the crimes they themselves committed or planned on committing. Bald faced double standards, a subset of their bald faced lies, are a tool of statecraft.
Today I’m on about Roseanne Barr’s Valerie Jarrett tweet. Let’s take a short trip on the ‘Way Back Machine. Didn’t you just love the endless association of Ronald Reagan with Bonzo the chimp? How about renaming George W. Bush as Chimpie McHilter? Real knee slappers, weren’t they? Recently Trump has been mocked as an orangutan. Shades of the Snopes Trial. It is a long standing practice to dehumanize one’s enemies by associating them with animals or their anatomy. I’ve seen examples going back to Roman times. In today’s topsy turvy PC world its funny when the Left does it but an unbearable outrage when anybody on right does.
So when Roseanne, a card carrying Deplorable (or at least she plays one on TV) said that Jarrett was a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and the Planet of the Apes the Left went Ape. “How dare she mock a
Commie Marxist Muzzie All of the above Progressive in the way we mock you guys? That’s against the rules! We’re gonna get you for that, Roseanne!” And they did, too.
The implication is that the comparison of Jarrett with intelligent talking apes was racist. Supposedly Jarrett, who was born in Iran, is black. If she’s black there were a whole lot of crackers in the woodpile ’cause she don’t look more than a pale high yella to me. Oh, by the way, never having seen the movie, my impression is that the enslaved humans were all white. What’ up with that? How’s about a little diversity, eh?
Unquestionably Jarrett is closely connected the Muslim Brotherhood and was their channel to Bizzarro #0. Wait, a minute here … Aren’t these Muslim Brotherhood types the very ones who go around teaching that Jews are the descendants of apes and pigs? So maybe the outrage isn’t about the comparison of Jarrett’s ‘blackness’ to apes, maybe its the juxtaposition of her Islamism with apes, and by association, the hated Jews? Who knows, who cares. All Lefties are furious in the dark, which is, after all, their natural habitat.
Maybe Roseanne should be apologizing for anti-anti-Semitism. Or something. Not, mind you, that she should be apologizing at all. Pissing these people off is a community service. There is always a chance that outrage might turn into apoplexy and render them hors de conniption for a while. Never, never, never apologize to these people, Roseanne, dear. It only weakens you and emboldens them. All they really want is to shut you up.
But on consideration it seems that Roseanne is apologizing for her poor eyesight. Realistically, I don’t see the visual connection between Jarrett’s appearance and the intelligent talking apes of Planet of the Apes. She looks more like a larval Jabba the Hutt to me.
