ABC-Disney (ESPN) Fires A Bigot And Hires A Bigot

Did you see the latest headlines? ESPN, owned by the Disney Company, has fired Keith Olbermann for calling President Trump a Nazi and referring to him as “F—ing Trump.” Yet in a brazen display of hypocrisy, Disney-ABC has hired Roseanne Barr after she sent out a bigoted, racist tweet against a former adviser to President Obama. Or did I get that wrong?

Yes, I got that quite wrong. But I think you get the point. And the double standard is glaring.

But what else is new? Bigotry against the left is indefensible. “You’re fired!” Bigotry against the right is justifiable. “You’re hired!” One is condemned. The other is commended.

It was no surprise, then, that ESPN recently rehired the radically-left leaning Olbermann, despite his extreme anti-Trump rhetoric and his history of conservative-bashing.

As noted by Brian Flood, “Olbermann has been among the most outspoken critics of the president in the entire media industry, even moving out of his luxury New York City apartment building because it was owned by Trump. He once claimed that Trump and his family have done more damage to the U.S. than Osama bin Laden. ESPN’s newest star was widely criticized when his anti-Trump book featured a cover image of himself draped in the American flag, which is visibly touching the ground – a violation of U.S. flag code.”

Despite this (or, because of this?) ESPN, owned by Disney, rehired Olbermann, (pic on left) now for his sixth stint with the network. This is inexcusable and unjustifiable.

Yet this very same Disney just fired Roseanne Barr for her own inexcusable, bigoted tweet in which she said of former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, “the Muslim brotherhood and planet of the apes had a baby.”

Despite the wildly popular nature of her new show and despite her apology, the show was cancelled. (In her apology she wrote, “I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste.”)

In the words of ABC, her comments were “abhorrent, repugnant, and inconsistent with our values.” And how would ABC-Disney describe Olbermann’s remarks?

Remember: These are remarks for which he has made no apology. To the contrary, he has turned his bigoted and biased comments into a book titled, Trump Is F—ing Crazy (This Is No Joke).

And is it wrong for me to wonder if ABC would have fired Roseanne if her tweet was directed at Trump? Or Sarah Sanders? (Obviously, I don’t mean the same words. I mean the same ugly spirit.)

Adding to the hypocrisy, in 2016, ESPN fired baseball legend (and conservative) Curt Schilling for posting a controversial meme which objected to a very male-looking transgender “woman” using the ladies’ bathroom. ( noted that, “Schilling had previously been suspended by ESPN for sharing a post that compared Muslim extremists to Nazis,” a position that many rationally-minded people would affirm.)

In the case at hand, I have no problem with Roseanne being fired.

My issue is with the double standards. They need to be confronted and exposed until they change.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
