DOUBLE STANDARD: 'Roseanne' gets canned while 'Full Frontal' apology saves Sam Bee

On May 27th, Ivanka Trump posted a lovely picture with her son. There's a genuine warmth to the picture, mother and son. They're touching foreheads and smiling. The picture is artful and sweet. The caption reads, “My heart! #SundayMorning."

Samantha Bee, whose show Full Frontal is the comedic talk show equivalent of campus feminism, responded to the picture in an unusual way: "You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, Do something about your dad's immigration practices, you feckless ----" and then she said the most offensive word in the English language.

Most people — especially the feminist types who follow Bee — agree that the word should never, ever be used. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word that Bee used, is so unbelievably offensive that it's hard to even hint at. “All senses of this word are vulgar slang and are very strongly tabooed and censored . . . There are many words used to refer to people in sexual terms. However, to call a person a ----, especially a woman, is one of the most hateful and powerful examples of verbal abuse in the English language."

She continued: "Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to f***ing stop it."

She wasn't even on Ambien. She was on camera. Meaning, the line was scripted. The hypocrisy is actually nauseating.

Oh, but she apologized. "I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it," she wrote in a tweet.

Will her show be canceled?

TBS, the network that airs her “political" show, wrote, "Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night. Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it."

By not firing her, they're telling the nation's young women and girls, “It's okay to abuse women you don't agree with."

Her show is scripted. Meaning, that line was approved by a slew of writers, producers and lawyers — in other words, it is accurately representative of the network itself. Roseanne made a stupid joke, and she faced the consequences of it. ABC cancelled Roseanne's show, a lucrative and successful sitcom, because of a bad tweet. Will Full Frontal with Samantha Bee be cancelled for the heinous, inexcusable thing that Samantha Bee said, on air? They should. Her show, Full Frontal, is nowhere near as successful as Roseanne's.

Recently, it has been doing poorly. The show's viewership has taken a precipitous dive. TBS has lost ad revenue on the failing show. By not firing her, they condone the behavior. By not firing her, they're telling the nation's young women and girls, “It's okay to abuse women you don't agree with." In other words, conservative women.

Double standards aside — if that's even possible — Bee's comment is objectively awful, crass and demeaning. You can guarantee that, if a conservative had used that word to describe Hillary or Chelsea Clinton or really any woman at all, they would've been immediately been disemboweled by feminists.

If you polled feminists, if you asked them, “Is it ever okay to refer to a woman as a c---?" They would no doubt unequivocally say no. Why is it okay now? Worse, it's part of a pattern of terrible indiscretions and depraved insults against the women surrounding President Trump. Why? The most recent example were the excoriating remarks about Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Michelle Wolf, also a former Daily Show member, made at the Correspondents Dinner. (The Daily Show produces such a wonderful alumni.)

Leftists can say and do whatever they want, even things that nobody should do or say, and no one can stop them.

Two of Samantha Bee's sponsors, AutoTrader and State Farm Insurance, have pulled ads from the show. But the show has plenty of other advertisers: Orkin, Geico, Taco Bell, Apple, Verizon, Outshine Snacks, Haagen Daas, Jim Bean, Microsoft, Febreze, Discover. By not pulling advertisements, they are implicit in their support of Bee and her vile comment. If they had any sense — unlike TBS — they'd rebuke Bee and pull their ads. But no, it won't happen, because Leftists can say and do whatever they want, even things that nobody should do or say, and no one can stop them.

Samantha Bee used the most offensive word in the English language to describe Ivanka Trump. And, somehow, people are fine with it. This is the world we're going to leave to our children, our sons and our daughters.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on air this morning. Watch the video below.

Glenn breaks down the Samantha Bee controversy

Samantha Bee lashes out with vulgar remark about Ivanka Trump.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
