Speaking at the Yediot Aharonot and Ynet Conference in Jerusalem last week, Roseanne Barr criticized America’s far left for having “absolutely no interest” in helping facilitate peace between Israelis and Palestinians, according to the Washington Times.
Roseanne Barr, who’s the former Green Party presidential candidate, decried the “naked” bigotry of America’s far left, adding that everything she believed about the left was “severely shaken.” The standup comedian also added that the scales began to fall from her eyes in many ways. Roseanne Barr also admitted that many of those she considered “comrades” turned out to be “naked bigots” who are absolutely not interested in establishing peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
“It was shocking to realize that what I considered criticism of Israel many, many times gave way to the garden variety anti-Semitism that I’d heard all of my life, which is basically the code-word ‘Rothschild’.”
Roseanne Barr, who is Jewish in origin, refers to the world-famous Jewish banking family that often becomes part of anti-Semitic memes on the internet. Barr also went on to argue that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement doesn’t want peace, nor does it want to hold peace talks.

And while BDS use code words such as “occupation” and as they stall for time, far left in America and Europe condemn Israel’s actions and make it look as if they don’t notice Hamas resuming their tunnel building, Roseanne Barr said. Roseanne Barr explained her ideological shift by saying she thought it was like being “harshly critical” of the U.S. actions in the Vietnam War when there were protesters who said it was “wrong.”
“But I didn’t know this was part of a creeping campaign of delegitimization of the entire state of Israel looking to its destruction. I didn’t know that.”
During a controversial divorce between Roseanne Barr and Tom Arnold in 1994, all the 57-year-old actor was hearing was that it was the end of his career in Hollywood, according to the Washington Times.

The Hollywood community then believed that Arnold had to thank his then-wife Roseanne Barr for making him famous in the show business. Barr invited Arnold on her show Roseanne and the actor served first as a writer and then as a guest performer. Barr and Arnold wed in 1990.
In his interview with the Washington Times, Arnold claimed Roseanne Barr told every president of every network that if they were to ever work with him, they would never work with her again.
