Proving once again that to be a liberal is to be a hypocrite who relishes in double standards, over the weekend America’s unfunniest comedian compared Jewish comedian Roseanne Barr to deceased Nazi dictator and mass murderer Adolf Hitler.
Michelle Wolf issued the comparison while criticizing ABC for having allowed Barr to revive her 1990s hit sitcom “Roseanne.” The network wound up cancelling the top-rated sitcom last week after Barr compared a black Obama administration official to an ape.
“Everyone’s been saying it’s so brave of ABC to cancel their hit show, but the bold move was actually putting this lady Hitler chef back on the air in the first place,” Wolf barked during the premiere of her Netflix show, “The Break with Michelle Wolf.”
“So kudos to ABC, it takes a lot of courage to fire someone after they’ve been openly racist for the thousandth time.”
The “lady Hitler chef” quip was in reference to a picture Barr posed for in 2009 for Heeb, a satirical Jewish publication. The picture depicted her as Hitler pulling Jewish gingerbread cookies out of an oven.
The left, including Wolf, have been using this picture to bolster their argument that Barr is an unrepentant racist:
9 years ago #Roseanne did a photo shoot where she dressed as Hitler & removed burnt 'Jew cookies' from an oven.

Barr happens to be a Jewish woman. And not just any Jewish woman, but one with an irreverent sense of humor. Want to know who else has an irreverent sense of humor? Michele Wolf.
During the White House Correspondents dinner two months ago, Wolf doused White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders with every disrespectful and profane “joke” humanely possible. She knocked Sanders’ looks, labeled Sanders an “Uncle Tom” and suggested Sanders never attended her high school prom because she was either too unpopular or ugly.
Were those “jokes” out of line? Maybe, maybe not, but that’s not the point. Wolf suffered no tangible repercussions for her flippant brand of comedy, as evidenced by the fact that she still remains gainfully employed. Nobody called her a sexist for criticizing Sanders’ look, and nobody called her a racist for using the epithet “Uncle Tom.”
There was admittedly some backlash, but it paled in comparison to the hellfire that rained down on Barr last week. And Wolf never even apologized.
Wolf tried to address the double standard allegation during her Netflix show.
“You’re right. It is a double standard,” she said. “So let’s even the playing field. How about we enslave all white people for a couple hundred years and even after they’re not slaves anymore, still hold them down in society, devalue their existence by comparing them to animals, never apologize, never really make it right, and then after that there will be no more double standards and everyone will get fired for everything they say.”
Her point was that because the ancestors of contemporary blacks suffered under slavery, it’s not OK for white comedians like Barr to compare someone like former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
While some would argue that’s a fair point, it still doesn’t excuse the foul/hateful/”sexist”/”racist”/”homophobic” rhetoric of leftist “comedians” like Wolf, not to mention Samantha Bee, Michael Che, Jimmy Kimmel, D.L. Hughley, Leslie Jones and countless others.
But again, unlike Barr, all these left-wing comedians remain gainfully employed. Why is that? Because be a liberal is to be a hypocrite who relishes in double standards!
