If America is so racist, why did Roseanne Barr get fired?

I continuously read on Facebook what a racist country America is. Racism in the United States is so bad, we don’t even have a black president anymore.

Roseanne Barr is a racist?

Considering all this, I was a little surprised when I learned ABC canceled the TV show Roseanne over a tweet the show’s namesake, Roseanne Barr, made about Valerie Jarrett, a former aide to President Obama. Roseanne said the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes had a baby. That baby is Valerie Jarrett.

Valerie Jarrett

Huh? I don’t understand the tweet.

Racist Roseanne Barr wants people to believe Jarrett’s birth parents are a terrorist organization and a sci-fi movie from the late 60s? How’s that even biologically possible? Babies are not made that way.

The court of public opinion immediately ruled the tweet to be racist. Like Judge Judy, rulings made by the court of public opinion are final. ABC then swiftly canceled Roseanne Barr’s TV show. Why would a television network based in a racist country serving a racist audience fire a woman because she was racist? In racist America, tweeting something racist only makes Roseanne Barr a bigger asset, not a liability.

America is racist

America is the most racist country in the world, right? In the United States of America, getting fired for being a racist is like someone in France getting fired because they were speaking French.

It makes no sense.

ABC might have fired Roseanne Barr and canceled her show, but I’m sure one of the other networks will pick it up. As racist as this country is, Roseanne’s tweet and subsequent firing generated a lot of positive publicity for her. HBO, Netflix, or one of the more premium networks will certainly hire Roseanne Barr. That’s if ABC doesn’t hire her back for a lot more money once they realize what a huge mistake they made.

Considering how racist America is, it’s a good time t0 be a confirmed racist. Roseanne Barr is so damn lucky.

Eating Tide Pods is healthy, natural, and completely normal

Trigger Warning: This post contains sarcasm. 

Evidently, there’s a thing online called the “Tide Pod Challenge” where teens challenge each other to eat laundry detergent packets while they record it on video. Experts have been warning the public that this is dangerous. They’ve looked into it and determined the contents of a Tide Pod is not conducive to human life.

Yada yada yada. What a bunch of egg heads.

I’m no scientist, but I think the Tide Pod Challenge is healthy, natural, and completely normal. Furthermore, I think it’s good for our society that some of our young people, the special snowflakes they are, are digesting expensive clothing detergent.

It’s good for the herd

The overall health of the herd if paramount.

I think it’s good long-term for our society, our herd if you will, that anyone engaging in the Tide Pod Challenge just removes their DNA from the gene pool.

They’re clearly mentally weak compared to their counterparts. I don’t mean they’ll never be able to master calculus or learn a foreign language. No, I mean they are the type of people who decide to do dumb shit.

Our herd desperately needs less of these types of people, not more. It’s addition by subtraction.

Back in my day, the people today partaking in the Tide Pod Challenge would have been taken care of by playing lawn darts or sticking a Wham-O Water Wiggle down their throat with the hose turned on to full blast.

Wham-O probably did more for thinning the herd than any other toy manufacturer in the 1970’s. And I should know, it’s a decade I survived. Growing up in the high desert of southern California, I played with many of Wham-O’s water-based summer toys. I also played lawn darts with my younger brother. I’m talking about the metal-tipped lawn darts of death.

We both survived.

You know what else is true about my younger brother and me? We aren’t the type of people who would ever eat laundry detergent.
