https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/roseanne-address-israeli-parliament-january-1171627

How can anyone think this is a good idea?

Quote
Former television star Roseanne Barr says she will be traveling to Israel in January and has been invited to address the country's parliament.

Barr announced her visit to Israel on Monday, saying her aim is to "further my own knowledge of Jewish and Israeli history" and speak out "against the insidious and anti-Semitic BDS movement." BDS refers to a Palestinian-led movement calling for the boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel.

ABC canceled its reboot of Roseanne in May after Barr tweeted racist remarks about former Obama administration adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Whoever invited her must be living under a rock or something.

If Roseanne carried water for the right people, her Adderall tweet (that she immediately apologized for) never would have been a thing.

Consider politicians like Lieberman, whose intellect and great virtues are universally acclaimed. But no, it wasn't his idea. Apparently she was invited by an "organization"

Quote
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, whose organization sponsored Barr's trip, says that "bringing an incredibly proud Jewish woman like Rosanne to Israel will be a great boost to its citizens."

If Roseanne carried water for the right people, her Adderall tweet (that she immediately apologized for) never would have been a thing.

Twitter can be a massive destruction weapon, don't you think?
The point is that her tweet was simply, ibsultingly; griddingly... racist. I can't imagine who with an average intelligence would want anything to do with that person. It is possible that malicious persons think the people or the organizations inviting her to speak are likeminded, or something

Really? Israel is a Nazi state? I guess that might be a compliment coming from you, though...
