I agree with those who say that what Samantha Bee said was not quite as bad as what Roseanne said, which was clearly racist. But it’s close.
The “C” word is nearly as egregious as the “N” word, except it’s for women. It is misogynist, even if uttered by a woman. There wasn’t even comedic license being taken by Bee. The context in which she used it was political. So you call you political opponents a “C.” That’s the new level of discourse.
If I used that word in public around most of the bosses I’ve had, I don’t thing I would have lasted very long. Would you have?
Why aren’t they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the horrible language used on her low ratings show? A total double standard but that’s O.K., we are Winning, and will be doing so for a long time to come!
