The Samantha Bee should be fired – Roseanne was fired – arms race continues on at an exasperating pace. Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump the “C-word,” and now conservatives want her show to suffer the same fate as Roseanne’s show following her Twitter statements that were deemed offensive.
Ultimately, it’s a pro-censorship war that we are all sure to lose.
Bee eventually apologized for the rhetoric towards Ivanka, saying, “I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.” But many of Hollywood’s elite rulers of the little people didn’t feel she should have apologized at all. And furthermore, most joined in on the contempt for Ivanka citing that Ivanka wasn’t even good enough to be likened to a c&%t.
That said, the lashing that Ivanka’s taken by elitists celebrities following Bee’s comments are far worse than Bee’s comments. Both Barr and Bee are comedians and both have a history of attempting to utilize “shock value” in their routines. In a free society, we scroll past it, or unfollow it, we ultimately ignore it. In a fascist society, we opt to censor it because it doesn’t sit well with our morality. We move to censor using virtue signaling.
Celebrities like Minnie Drive and Sally Field were among a large number of Hollywood elites that sought to trash Ivanka through transparent and bitter virtue signaling. Ivanka, a fellow woman, was ridiculed, thrashed and rendered as garbage by those who decided to cast her out with hardly any good reasoning.
Liberal indoctrination has always utilized virtue signaling as a prominent weapon of deeper indoctrination. It frightens the herd to get in line with a single party’s idea or suffer being an outcast who will likely be unemployed and cut off from society.
Honestly I think Samantha Bee was being generous.

Even some classic stars of film “graced” us with their own spin over the matter. You know, the feminists who believe in trashing women who don’t tow the exact party line they do.
I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a cunt.
Cunts are powerful, beautiful, nurturing and honest.

That was the wrong word for Samantha Bee to have used . But mostly because ( to paraphrase the French ) Ivanka has neither the warmth nor the depth.

Even Harvey Weinstein’s go-to lawyer got in on the Ivanka trashing party.
OK, but a white woman (Roseanne) invoking slavery-era racism about a black woman is miles away from a woman using the “c” word to insult another woman. Neither comic was “kidding,” really. Sam’s point was true: Ivanka has not helped immigrant kids. Roseanne’s was a flat out lie. https://t.co/PFY3pnhXBY

The media and extreme liberal politicians understand how well divide and conquer works on the herd. And celebrities are willful agents of divisive rhetoric. The deeper the divide, the easier the herd is to subjugate. I’m not reinventing any wheels here, this is something history and common sense show us in spades.
I’ve lost all confidence that the herd will awaken from any of this. Things are going to get a lot worse before people realize what’s happening. Liberals have too many indoctrinated agents in powerful places working the streets.
