TEACHABLE MOMENTS: What Can We Learn from the Way the Media Handled Rosanne’s Comment and the NFL ‘Protest’

THE ROAD TO CONCORD

If you haven’t heard, ABC has cancelled the Rosanne show over a comment Rosanne made about Valerie Jarrett:

BREAKING: ABC cancels ‘Roseanne’ over actress’s ‘racist’ Tweet about former Obama official

This provides us with a teachable moment: a teachable moment that I couldn’t have ever dreamed we would be handed to us.  However, now that it has been, we are not going to let this moment pass us by.

There is so much here that I almost do not know where to begin.  So, let’s start with the most obvious.

When the media is criticized for the type of programming it produces, it likes to claim that it is just giving its audience what they want.  The whole idea is to give people the impression that they are just a business looking to make a profit.  Well, the Rosanne show has been one of the most viewed television shows in…

  1. Joe,
    You need to post the entirety of your Teachable Moments on this site. The TRUTH can only be
    revealed by reading all of your words. I totally agree with your opinion.

  2. Some info about who and What Valerie Jarrett really is:

    This is Valerie Jarrett and her family……..Federal Bureau of Investigation
    (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and
    father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were
    hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

    Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties
    to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950
    Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who
    fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman was also a member of
    a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical
    Students. After his discharge from the Army Medical Corps in 1955, Bowman moved
    to Iran to work, the FBI records show.

    According to Bowman’s government file the Association of Internes and Medical
    Students is an organization that “has long been a faithful follower of the
    Communist Party line” and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in
    Washington D.C. and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with
    fellow Communists. JW also obtained documents on Bowman from the U.S. Office of
    Personnel Management (OPM) showing that the FBI was brought into investigate him
    for his membership in a group that “follows the communist party line.” The
    Jarrett family Communist ties also include a business partnership between
    Jarrett’s maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor, and Stern, the Soviet agent
    associated with her dad.

    Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago
    Communist, according to separate FBI files obtained by JW as part of a probe
    into the Jarrett family’s Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett
    appeared on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist
    saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of
    Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to
    write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would
    “disseminate the Communist Party line among…the middle class.”

    It’s been well documented that Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago lawyer and longtime
    Obama confidant, is a liberal extremist who wields tremendous power in the White
    House. Faithful to her roots, she still has connections to many Communist and
    extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Jarrett and her family also
    had strong ties to Frank Marshal Davis, a big Obama mentor and Communist Party
    member with an extensive FBI file.

    JW has exposed Valerie Jarrett’s many transgressions over the years, including
    her role in covering up a scandalous gun-running operation carried out by the
    Department of Justice (DOJ). Last fall JW obtained public records that show
    Jarrett was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric
    Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious, a disastrous experiment in
    which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed guns
    from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to
    drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds
    of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the
    murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.

    In 2008 JW got documents linking Valerie Jarrett, who also served as co-chairman
    of Obama’s presidential transition team, to a series of real estate scandals,
    including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama
    fundraiser/friend Antoin “Tony” Rezko. According to the documents obtained from
    the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for
    several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago slum
    projects operated by Rezko.

    • I aim to please Ed…. as always.

      Remember . . .
      To Liberals everything they think and say is real
      and what Deplorables say is only in their minds.
      To them Hillary didn’t really lose. There is no real
      conservative MAGA renaissance. To them only a
      very blind person would not look back on all the
      great things Obama accomplished like wrecking
      your healthcare. To think otherwise is delusional.
      Ms-13 are spiritual people right ? As Pelosi said
      the illegals are like the baby Jesus. Who could
      possibly deny such realities ? But of course it is
      not real. Liberalism is a mental disorder just like
      Islam is not a religion of peace. And in order to be
      a liberal you must lie to yourself and to others
      over and over again . . . .
