There seems to be a tug of war going on about hateful, vile remarks and who can get away with them and who gets punished for them. It's like little kids on the playground. Personally, I'm sick of the hateful rhetoric from everybody, and most especially from the JA who as the President should be a role model and instead is the worst of the worst. So why do we as a society keep picking sides and defending what is clearly reprehensible from anyone? Roseanne is a racist plain and simple. Ivanka is a spoiled brat, but doesn't deserve to be called vulgar names in the disguise of comedy. There's a fine line with comedy, and sometimes comedians cross it. That doesn't make it right. I'm also sick of hearing the right complain about The View. I haven't seen an episode of The View in years, but if you don't like it then don't watch it. If they don't have viewers it will go off the air. If you complain to the sponsors enough, it will go off the air. But whatever Joy Behar says or doesn't say, or Whoopi, or Samantha Bee, or Roseanne whether you like them or not it doesn't make hateful rhetoric acceptable, and I'm sick of hearing "well so and so did this, so it's ok for someone else to do that." Is that what we teach our children? If someone does something wrong then it's ok for you to do it too? We have become a hate filled society. I don't blame that all on the JA. The hate must have already been festering beneath the surface. He was smart enough, however, to recognize and exploit it. But ultimately we are all responsible for our own actions. I am ashamed of what our citizenry has become. And it's not just comedians, it's media such as Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and on, and on, and on until it is now Tom, Dick, Harry, Jane, and Sally, those average people on the street who think saying disgusting things is somehow acceptable.
