Hollywood leftists are growing more and more intolerant.
Pro-Trump comedian and actress Roseanne Barr had her hit television show canceled after one unfortunate Twitter joke.
But Roseanne aptly pointed out the so-called tolerant left’s hypocrisy on one troubling topic.
Roseanne isn’t a traditional conservative, but she was a full-throated Donald Trump supporter in this current age of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Despite her support for Trump, ABC greenlit a revival of her hit self-titled television show. Many figured the reboot was a sop to the millions of conservatives who felt their voices weren’t being portrayed on television.
However, in the current political climate, Roseanne was always on thin ice. The reboot was a monster hit, but the network almost seemed uneasy about the success of the show because it didn’t conform to their leftist standards.
In spite of the show’s popularity, Roseanne made one mistake, and ABC didn’t waste any time pouncing on her.
Roseanne made an ill-advised tweet where she joked that top Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett resembled a character from “Planet of the Apes,” unaware that Jarrett is black.
The network canceled the show immediately and didn’t give Roseanne a chance to apologize for her regrettable tweet.
The leftist twitter mob — including Hollywood celebrities — applauded the decision to remove Roseanne from the airwaves.
When the smoke cleared, the outrage machine had branded Roseanne a Nazi, never mind the fact both of her parents were Jewish immigrants.
Just recently, Disney fired “Guardians of the Galaxy” writer/director James Gunn after independent journalist dredged up old twists where he made the most vile pedophilia jokes imaginable.
One tweet even provided a link from a friend of Gunn’s who’s a registered sex offender.
This came after Gunn and his liberal cohorts stomped all over Roseanne’s proverbial grave for her bad joke.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander…unless you’re a leftist. Roseanne was left out in the cold, but many celebrities started a campaign to get Gunn rehired on the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”
Roseanne quickly pointed out the absurd double standard:
I’m disgusted to read all of the support for James Gunn’s pedophile jokes-as the same people supported blacklisting me for a joke they didn’t even understand.

For Roseanne’s crime of voting for Donald Trump, her television show had to be summarily canceled.
However, Gunn, who’s a vociferous Trump critic on twitter, was wrapped in a cocoon by the left and said that his disturbing tweets required a more compassionate and nuanced approach.
People on the left will be quick to say that Gunn was simply joking and isn’t a pedophile. But do leftists truly believe that Roseanne harbors racial animus toward black people?
If they’re being honest, and they rarely are, the left would probably have to admit that Roseanne isn’t a racist.
But she supports Trump, so that’s close enough for the outrage mob.
Recently, Dan Harmon, another leftist writer/producer who’s anti-Trump, got into hot water for a sketch he did where he pretended to rape an infant.
Harmon deleted his Twitter account, and was allowed to keep his popular TV show “Rick & Morty.”
Hollywood’s obsession with pedophile “humor” is quite disturbing.
