Roseanne Barr, May 29th, 2:45 am

Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.

ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey, May 29th 1.45 pm

What you have to remember is that your Racist, Bigot, Misogynist wants more than that you stop thwarting their Racist, Bigoted, Misogynistic actions.

They want more than that you stop pointing out in public their Racism, Bigotry, and Misogyny. They want more than your accusatory disapproving gaze, or even your stunned silence.

What they want is your approval. They want your applause. They want you to prove that you are just as Racist, just as Bigoted, just as Misogynistic as they are.

Nothing less will suffice.

Abraham Lincoln
Cooper Union, February 27, 1860

The question recurs, what will satisfy them? Simply this: We must not only let them alone, but we must somehow, convince them that we do let them alone.

This, and this only: cease to call slavery wrong, and join them in calling it right. And this must be done thoroughly – done in acts as well as in words. Silence will not be tolerated – we must place ourselves avowedly with them. Senator Douglas’ new sedition law must be enacted and enforced, suppressing all declarations that slavery is wrong, whether made in politics, in presses, in pulpits, or in private. We must arrest and return their fugitive slaves with greedy pleasure. We must pull down our Free State constitutions. The whole atmosphere must be disinfected from all taint of opposition to slavery, before they will cease to believe that all their troubles proceed from us.

Meanwhile, throughout the day, the Hill referred to her comments as ‘racially charged.’

After the New York Times was slammed for hedging by calling her remarks offensive, the Times changed their online headline from ‘offensive’ to ‘racist.’ Politico also changed their headline from ‘racially charged’ to ‘racist.’
