Bill Maher - DNC Darling... Hillary Supporter... Racist... Sexist... Bigot...

I've NEVER been able to stand the guy, to be honest.  He is NOT humorous nor witty (though that's his job) and he reeks of rich, East Coast elitism...

He also has a LOOOONNNNGGGG track record of being a bigot, misogynist and racist.

Recently, while interviewing Senator Ben Sasse, Maher was invited to “come work in the fields with us” in his home state of Nebraska.

Maher's response?  “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house nigger!”

HBO, the channel the show aired on called Maher's remarks "completely inexcusable and tasteless".  They're right!  Too bad those are FAR from the first...

You see Maher is a racist.  

What makes it even more disgusting his type of racism is apparently just fine with establishment, elitist Democrats, because, MOSTLY, he is Islamophobic.  

For example, he once asked a Pakistani-British band member where he was during the Boston Bombing.

He also regularly spews a host of insults about the Koran, Muslims, and Islam in general.

Additionally, while complaining about St. Patrick’s Day stereotypes "joked", “What if during Black History Month, we all bought lobster with food stamps?

"What if for Cinco de Mayo we all went swimming in blue jeans?”

See what I mean?  (if not, then you are most DEFINITELY part of the problem!)

He also is a misogynistic as hell...  He regularly calls women "bitches" and and even cheered on a pro football player for choking his girlfriend, saying “the surprise is that someone hasn’t choked this bitch sooner.”

He additionally showed his scorn for women by uses sexist language to take a shot at Trump when he said, “If Trump was a man, he’d stop whining like a little bitch." and stuck up for his buddy Bill O’Reilly’s right to tell racist and sexist joke about Rep. Maxine Waters’ hair.

Lastly he is homophobic and transphobic and often expressed his disgust over both.  To make it worse he often did it while hanging out with his bestest transphobic buddy Milo Yiannopoulos...  I guess in between his pedophile appointments. ::roll eyes::

....BUT...  he's still the darling of the elitist, neo-lib, Demosaurs.  Go figure!

...and yeah, I know...  I'm just tearing him down without a "better" replacement.  ::roll eyes::

sometimes I have to agree with you because he pisses me off.  but mostly I like him.  I won't defend him, because I have a thick skin.

my reasons for liking him is that he can be very funny and he consistently speaks truth to power, or at least spits in it's face.  and he offers a very popular leftist forum.  

but sometimes he makes me wince, particularly around women.  some of the things he says particularly in the presence of women can be VERY creepy...discussing blow jobs when he has female guests.  but this year he seemed to have cleaned up his act.  

we missed last night's show and can't seem to find it.  has HBO removed it?

For what it's worth, Maher's previous show Politically Incorrect was was cancelled by ABC in 2002:

In the aftermath of the 9-11attacks, U.S. President George W. Bush said that the terrorists responsible were cowards. In a Politically Incorrect episode on September 17, 2001, Maher's guest Dinesh D'Souza disputed Bush's label, saying the terrorists were warriors. Maher agreed, and replied: "We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, [it's] not cowardly."

Despite similar comments having been made in other media, advertisers withdrew their support and some ABC affiliates stopped airing the show temporarily. White House press secretary Ari Fleischer denounced Maher, warning that "people have to watch what they say and watch what they do."  Maher apologized, and explained that he had been criticizing U.S. military policy, not American soldiers.

The show was canceled the following June, which Maher and many others saw as a result of the controversy, although ABC denied that the controversy was a factor and said the program was canceled due to declining ratings.

I guess Bill learned his lesson.

I don't like Bill Maher but methinks SBA has not sense of humor. 

You find racism, sexism trans/homophobia to be "humorous", Terry?  

I guess Bill learned his lesson.

What does that mean, JMac?  That he stopped insulting powerful, elite people and now only insults minorities and women???

Comment by JMac1949 Today on June 3, 2017 at 3:13pm

Yep... I never found much humor in anything he has to say.

Comment by Safe Bet's Amy on June 3, 2017 at 3:22pm

...and he offers a very popular leftist forum.

Why do you think that is?  It's not like we are the only ones who have noticed that he is a sexist bigot, FFS!  

Why you are thinking about it, here's my theory:  The Left has been fed so much bullshit from the Elitists that comprise the DNC and the establishment Demosaurs that we are willing to "compromise" and accept Maher's "lesser bigotry" just like accepting Hillary's "lesser evilism".  Somehow, many on the left, especially the ones who have voted Demosaur all their lives, have become conditioned.  Its like they have a "Pavlovian" acceptance of anyone who SAYS they are not a Republican, regardless of how vile they might be.

Amy, for me mostly he's got an excellent forum and he can be funny. A lot of good comedians are beyond pc. i like what I like.  

This is who I am.  I don't buy into pc. 

If I was sufficiently offended I wouldnt watch his show.

I don't watch the guy, not as a boycott but just because I never have, and I disagree with him often. I don't like most of what he says about Islam because there's just too much he ignores, particularly when it comes to Muslim religious opposition to Jihadists and political causes behind the success of Jihadist recruiting. 

And of course I'm tired of his atheistic evangelism, of which he is perhaps the most prominent practitioner. Like with Islam, I don't like what he ignores.

Maher's problem? He has more money than his mind can process....

Like many of his ilk, he believes that as long as he takes cheap shots at 'everybody', everybody should be OK with that and accept him/it for what he/it is...

He's not Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, Bob Newhart, Dick Gregory or even George Carlin.,  

He lacks the depth of insight and consistency of perspective, but most of all, he lacks respect for the intelligent sensitivity of those he knows are unable to respond in kind and in "Real Time".

Why did I mention money? Maher is afflicted with Trump's disease, which causes him to believe that, being rich and famous is 'carte blanche' for virtually any behavioral aberration as long as you can pay for it.

Anything goes and usually does in a society full of star-struck suckers and rubes blinded by celebrity..

I tend to enjoy humor which skates along the edge of what society calls acceptable, and I have little patience for the thought-Nazi enforcers of PC, but Bill Maher is, 1. a fucking asshole and 2. a richy-rich douchebag and 3. not very funny. Fuck the MSM anyway, right? Doug Stanhope sometimes says shit which crosses various kinda lines, but at least the motherfucker knows how to make me laugh
