Roseanne Barr has little patience for anti-Semitic groups masquerading as feminists and she is making that quite clear.
Barr, who has always been a fighter for women’s rights, recognizes that the leaders of the Women’s march are more intent on hating Jews than they ever have been in fighting for women’s rights.
The current leaders of the women’s march are Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and has other anti-Semitic supporters such as Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Even the DNC, no fan of Israel and Debbie Wasserman Schultz have abandoned the March over their anti-Semitism.
TEL AVIV – Comedian Roseanne Barr called the Women’s March “disgusting” and said that while she is a fighter for women’s rights, when it comes to the movement lead by Linda Sarsour, Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez, her only comment is “Bitch, shut up.”
Barr made her comments during a Q&A session following a panel she gave alongside longtime friend Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in Tel Aviv earlier this week.
One audience member asked Barr what she thought of the Women’s March, to which the comedian answered: “It’s disgusting.”
“All my life I’ve fought to have women’s voices in the media and every other place,” she said, “but here I’m like ‘Bitch, shut up.’”
Her swipe was met with cheers and applause from the 500-strong crowd of Israelis and new immigrants.
Barr went on to say that hostility within the Women’s March defeated its purpose of defending human rights — and in particular, those of women.
“If you’re out there advocating for war and pain and division, it doesn’t seem real feminist to me,” she said.
