Samantha Bee Decides It’s America’s Fault That She’s Vulgar [VIDEO]

Samantha Bee’s vulgarity was on full display just a few days ago. In case any of our readers missed out, Samantha decided with TBS’s approval to use a portion of her show to attack Ivanka Trump. Deanna wrote here about the double standards on full display regarding Roseanne’s tweets and Samantha Bee calling Ivanka a ‘feckless C*NT.’

Make no mistake, the entire show was tightly scripted and TBS was fully aware of what she was going to say.

The backlash regarding her vulgarity and toxic feminism went nuclear. And rightly so.

After losing at least three advertisers, Bee offered up this apology.

I must point out that, for someone who is supposedly a champion of the #MeToo movement, that kind of  vulgarity spoken by a woman and directed AT another woman does more harm than good.

Last night Samantha was given an award by the Television Academy. Yes, I know, that award should’ve been rescinded, but I digress.

Was Bee still remorseful about her actions and her vulgarity? Not. One. Bit.

And at the Television Academy Honors, Bee addressed the controversy once more. Though reporters were barred from the event following the eruption, a source fed IndieWire Bee’s words. “You know, the thing is our show is steeped in passion,” Bee said in her speech. “Every week I strive to show the world as I see it, unfiltered. Sometimes I should probably have a filter. I accept that. I take it seriously when I get it right and I do take responsibility when I get it wrong.”

“Stories about 1,500 missing unaccompanied migrant children flooded the news cycle over the weekend,” Bee continued “So last night we aired a segment on the atrocious treatment of migrant children by this administration and past administrations. . . . Our piece attracted controversy of the worst kind. . . . We spent the day wrestling with the repercussions of one bad word when we all should have spent the day incensed that as a nation we are wrenching children from their parents and treating people legally seeking asylum as criminals. If we are O.K. with that, then really, who are we?”

Yes, you read the above correctly. America focused on one single word instead of Samantha’s message. It’s America’s fault that Bee suggested that Ivanka seduce, yes SEDUCE her father in order to change immigration policy. It’s America’s fault that no one is paying attention to the EEEVIL Trump immigration policies and so she is TOTALLY justified in calling Ivanka a ‘feckless c*nt.’

Yeah, no. Samantha YOU are the one who decided to climb down into the pit of vulgarity. YOU are the one who decided to spew such vitriol with TBS’s full approval. The ONLY one who is at fault here in this is YOU.

Yes, we do live in epically stupid times. We are also living in a time where the double standard is in full play. Roseanne gets booted from her show because of a racist tweet, Samantha Bee offers up a half-assed apology then recants and gets to keep her show. The difference between the two? Roseanne has been willing to give President Trump a chance. Samantha Bee hates President Trump with all her being. Samantha fits the narrative. Roseanne doesn’t.

CNN’s Peggy Drexler thinks everyone overreacted.

Of course, all anyone really heard was “feckless c***!” The word is shocking. That was why Bee used it: to be provocative and impossible to ignore. She could have used a safer word. But these are not safe times.

No Peggy, you are wrong. I don’t care if one believes we are living in an unsafe world. That is NO excuse to use that kind of language.

Samantha Bee can flap her potty mouth all she wants. And we can call her out on her vulgarity. But Samantha? Don’t blame Americans for the choices you’ve made. That’s on you dear, you and you alone. Bless. Your. Heart.

    On top of everything else, I’m not sure Bee knows what “feckless” means.

    “Stories about 1,500 missing unaccompanied migrant children flooded the news cycle over the weekend,”
    Which also happened to be untrue. But that’s not relevant, because… narrative!

    Samantha fits the narrative. Roseanne doesn’t.
    DING!

    She could have used a safer word.
    One way to put it. Another is “Bee should have been less of a c***.” Right?

    I think the outrage over the word is a bit over the top for some folks. Our culture has gone into the gutter, at least, if not entirely into the septic tank. The hatred expressed by a lot of people is grotesque.
    But, Bee did something for which she deserved to get called out, and her apology is meh, and even less than that given her defense at the awards ceremony.

    This stuff is why part of me really doesn’t mind the idea of a hot civil war that burns down half the country. Because it will mostly be Bee’s half.

    Look at the bright side, scratch one more word off the taboo list. The black community and allied mainstreamed the n-word. Now the irate cows are going to mainstream the c-word. If you don’t like a word, don’t use it. However don’t use and tolerate a word and then pretend you find it offensive.

    As for the meaning of feck, the e has replace a u. As for what the phrase feckless c*** means, Professor Althouse has a long thread on it.

    Personally, I’m not too concerned specifically with “Ms. Bee”.
    I’m more concerned with the crowd of “people like that”, with the nerve to “speak like that”, in a venue like that, to a laughing “audience like that, that she subsequently may be given “air” like that,
    and bestowed recognition for “excellence” like that, by folks not particularly worthy of bestowing recognition like that.
    But then, I freely practice discrimination in evaluating desirable behavior, character, and integrity, so……

    I admit it: it is my fault. She was just trying to get me to watch her show and I yet to do so.
