Roseanne Barr: 'Fake Hollywood gun control campaign for Dem fundraising only'

We have noticed that Roseanne Barr has been a bit quiet about the gun control debate in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting.  For someone who usually inspires plenty of fodder for Twitchy, you’d think we’d have seen more from her on the issue.

So why has Roseanne been relatively silent until now?  Perhaps it is because, surprisingly,  she is a supporter of gun rights.

We don’t typically see eye to eye with Roseanne, but if she wants to criticize Hollywood and Dems for exploiting the gun control debate, we say let her have at it!

    OMG she’s actually right!

    …maybe the Maya are too?

  • Jack Deth


    A blind squirrel found some nuts!!!

    • Hiraghm

      sounds painful for somebody.

  • Marcy Cook

    It really is the end of the world tomorrow! Because for once I can agree on what a lunatic leftist is saying!!!! God save us all!!!!!!!

    • JeannieJ

      Marcy, you’re too funny! Between you and my husband (the Atheist who said “Maybe there IS a God” in response to this topic), I’m banning all beverages in our office. Tired of wiping up tea, soda, coffee, etc.

    • Kathy Jones Guyer

      Dont let Roseanne see that comment. She says shes not a leftist or a liberal

  • Streetiebird

    One can simultaneously support gun rights and support regulation of the same guns. I know that’s hard for some to grasp, but it’s a pretty common sentiment (and one that I happen to share)

    • jonhartz

      It’s called cognitive dissonance.

      • Streetiebird

        No, it’s called being nuanced. Good try though!

        • Jack Deth

          You’re a mindless, lemming like Obama-Bot.

          Remember to stand very still should you ever be mugged.

          Offer no resistance, whatsoever. It’s called “Static Analysis”. What liberals always seem to use in any decision taking. Instantly assuming that everyone thinks and act as they do.

          Never taking into consideration, “Dynamic Analysis” and reacting instead of acting statically.

          Static Analysis= Obama, libs and Democrats actually believing that citizens will give up their Second Amendment Rights.

          Dynamic Analysis= Enormously long lines at gun stores and quickly climbing membership in the NRA.

    • Hiraghm

      Yes, one must be a leftist to believe in the regulation of God given rights.

      • Streetiebird

        God gave you the right to own guns? WOW

        • NachoCheese (D)

          The right to self defense is one of your Natural Rights.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          He sure did.

          1 Timothy 5:8
          But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

          • Streetiebird


        • KansasGirl

          No pal, G-d gave man the right to life.

    • putthehammerdown

      So,stop stuttering and tell us in explicit detail what you deem to be additional,essential regulations on guns.
      [like 20,000 plus nationwide is not sufficient]
      Please show us rubes, proles and ‘clinging’ redstaters what we don’t fathom, but that ‘will work’ in your humble estimation.
      We, who know nothing, look to you for guidance, direction and side splitting humor of the first order.
      So get on with it….. ‘Twitchy’ needs you, now more than ever……….
      {Meanwhile, back at her local DNC Headquarters, StreetieBird was planning to eliminate woldwide climate change in 100 words or less…… but was still seaching for ways to do that, and minimize her personal Co2, and methane output}

    • KansasGirl

      There is no power on earth that should regulate guns.

      • Streetiebird

        I had to read this three times with different levels of sarcasm to see which one was appropriate, then I realized that you’re serious! LOL scary stuff!

        • KansasGirl

          Good. I made my point.

  • grais

    She’s probably like a stopped clock; correct twice/day.

  • Adela Wagner

    She was all aflutter when she was touting the fact that Larry Hagman used to throw parties “back in the day” and invite the Black Panthers. I tweeted to her and asked how she felt about their current stand on “killing all white people,even the good ones,kill them first before they have a chance to go bad” and she tweeted me back sayibg she hoped they did not say this, so I sent her a few links. Noticed she’s been a little quiet since then. May have been out buying guns, not sure.

  • Moriah Jovan

    Considering her “SS” comment, I’m going to bet she’s starting to come around to the “WTF are you doing with my money?” school of political thought. Occasionally, as one ages and gets slapped around enough, one gets a clue.

    • shimauma

      Wasn’t Winston Churchill who said, if you’re not a libturd when you’re young, you have no heart, but if you’re not a conservative when you’re old, you have no brain? maybe rosey is maturing in her old age.

      • Moriah Jovan

        Dunno about that, but I have heard “a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged.”

      • Ranadicus

        Actually, it was “a man under 30 who is not a liberal has no heart and a man over 30 who is not a conservative has no brain” however, Churchill never said it. The quote is actually from some British author or something whose name I can’t remember.

  • jonhartz

    Progs cannot see their own cognitive dissonance, ie: simultaneously crying for dead kids and supporting killing unborn kids. Same with guns for Barr.

    • Mrs. Tiggiwinkel

      Soot, what about their deafening silence on dead kids who aren’t white and/or American? Inner cities are knee deep in blood and Hellfire missiles blast little brown kids into mush, and nary a word from these self-congratulating douches who are too busy pushing gay marriage as an important issue (and being completely hypocritical there too).

      • jonhartz

        Like the starving Africans and abused Muslim women completely ignored by the left? Those? Or the One raining drone hell on innocents whenever He feels like it? Him? Like the Chicago gun control fail with dozens of murders every month? That? Who comes from Chi-town and who runs it now? Same types that pillaged Detroit, Newark, Oakland, etc etc…Carry on, dreamer.

  • TundraThunder

    Roseanne is right for a change?

    As Fred Sanford would say: Ow my heart. I think I’m having a heart attack. You hear that Elizabeth. I’m coming to join you honey.

    • shimauma

      And then he would call Lemont a “big dummy”

  • K-Bob

    There’s a reason why this push to ban guns won’t work. A lot of leftists recognize the value of guns. Especially minorities who live in tough neighborhoods.

    Check out this article by Adam Winkler at The Atlantic, where he points out that the Black Panthers are serious gun owners.

  • NachoCheese (D)

    While she’s right about this current screaming for gun control is a manufactured campaign for dem fundraising, Roseanne doesn’t support gun rights. If you read the tweets from Jul 4th, she is clearly mocking those who do support the right to bare arms. Note the idiotic “i have not killed more than one or two persons and they had it comin'”, “we should b able 2 shoot whom we please” and “get a gun & a wood chipper”.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    now, now… just hang on, there. this could just be a case of missing a few medications…

  • Bob Smooper

    She is a Republican! You lot planted her to make we kind, honourable, loving, Democrats look bad.

    • Ntr

      No, actually the history of the whitebread, white-hooded Democratic party, for anyone who takes the time to look into it, does that all on its own.

    • R0nin

      I picked up on the sarcasm I your post, Mark. Unfortunately it can easily be missed when using a print media 😉

  • GaryTheBrave

    As a Benefactor Life member of the NRA I support banning guns…to Hollywood!!

    If the push is to keep guns out of the hands of those who are irresponsible then directors and actors should not have them in any movie or TV show. It p!$$e$ me off when I see guns depicted unsafely and irresponsibly. These productions have consultants on the set to ensure accuracy. Why not a gun consultant?

    When I read Roseanne’s tweet I thought that was where she was heading.

  • TruMotor

    Maybe her bodyguards all quit???

  • rinodino

    So she is actually a “crazy”; enjoy Righties, she’s all yours!!!!!…. and no we don’t want her back no matter what side of the isle her next opinion lands on…

    • Lady 12


    • Ntr

      Sorry, but your ‘side’ owns her regardless of her opinion on this.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      Typical left: once someone leaves the Democrat plantation, time to stab them in the back, or throw them under the bus.

  • DavidKramer

    RB has armed bodyguards on the payroll. Hypocrites just roll that way, I think it is a requirement for lefties.

  • tina v

    i still can’t stand her mouth, but I am glad she is not as stupid as the other hollyweird celebrities.

  • Olderme

    Why is everyone knocking Roseann, she has always said what she believes, most time the world doesn’t agree with her, but this time a few do.

  • Bonita Ledzius

    I don’t have much respect for Barr, but she has a point with this one.

  • Dominic

    She gets a little credit for being on the right side this time.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    I wouldn’t be so quick to interpret her lashing out at Libs as being in support of gun rights. I read that as she’s hammering them for demogoging the issue and not really doing anything. Rosanne is a snake. Tread warily.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    She must have seen Chuck Woolery’s video on the 6 reasons why we need assault weapons. I believe she hates the government and wouldn’t want them to get any more power over her…she’s still a dunce though

  • Rulz

    It’s really too bad Barr didn’t get the Green Party nomination. She could have drawn more votes away from Barack H. Obama and Joesph Robinette Biden.

  • NotaLemming

    I just wonder who told her to say this. Honestly I don’t think she is bright enough to figure out the obvious. So next question for RB. How is this FUND-RAISING / AGENDA any different from another event? After all the democrats only care about CREATING victims so they can use them to further other agendas. They actually are very evil people.

  • BeeKaaay

    It is refreshing to see her see reality and accept it.

  • righthook38

    Hey, even a broken clock is right twice a day!

  • Moue La Moue (D)

    Wouldn’t trust her as far as I could throw her. I can’t even pick her up, so I’m not going to trust her.

  • VindicatorGC ✠ III%

    She’s still an idiot.
