Uber-Leftist Bill Maher Defends Free Speech … “This is America, Do We Not Have the Right to Draw Whatever We Want?” (VIDEO)
FREE SPEECH MAKES STRANGE BED FELLOWS … UBER-LEFTIST BILL MAHER COMES TO THE DEFENSE OF PAM GELLAR.
Like him or hate him, agree with him or not, Bill Maher is 100% consistent and correct when t comes to radical Islam and their assault on our rights like freedom of speech. On his latest HBO show, ‘Real Time‘ with Bill Maher, he takes on the recent shooting in Garland, TX where two radical Islamist jihadist were shot dead by a Garland police officer as they tried to attack the “draw the Prophet Mohammad’ event.
Bill Maher starts out by saying, “this is America, do we not have the right to draw whatever we want?” Maher is 100% correct. Maher also mentioned the writers group, PEN, that recently gave Charlie Hebdo an award for courage. However, over 200 writers, including Garry Tradeau of Doonesbury comic fame, objected to the giving of the award, of which Maher thought was pretty crazy. I would have to agree, imagine a media that condemns other media for practicing free speech only because certain elitists in the media think their brand of free speech is the only allowed free speech? Does that not reek of censorship?
Maher reads Tradeau’s writings, “By punching downward, by attacking a powerless, disenfranchised minority with crude, vulgar drawings closer to graffiti than cartoons, Charlie wandered into the realm of hate speech, which in France is only illegal if it directly incites violence. Well, voila—the 7 million copies that were published following the killings did exactly that, triggering violent protests across the Muslim world. Then Bill Maher came out with the money line that all need to take a long hard look at. Maher says, “so this assumes that we just have to accept that Muslims are unable to control themselves the way we would ask everyone else in the world. To me that’s bigotry. That’s the soft bigotry of low expectations.” Maher further opines, “We don’t ask anyone else in the world
MAHER GOT THAT RIGHT.
Then we are presented with typical stupidity and asinine comment that represents today’s PC liberalism of squishiness from MSNBC’s Alex Wagne who says ,”isn’t the whole point of free speech not to judge people based on what people say”? What turnip truck did this lib fall off of? But like a typical liberal, you cant offend and judge people. Panelist Will Cain would slap her down saying, “no that is definitely not the role of free speech, you judge, you just don’t censor”. I thought for one second Cain was going to use the old SNL line from the classic Dan Aykroyd and Jane Curtin Point-Counterpoint skit, “
Jane Alex, you ignorant slut”.
Cain then went on to make a point that should be a wake up call to all of the media as he said, “You don’t just have a right to free speech, when someone’s position is, if you offend me, I will kill you, it becomes virtuous for you to offend that person. You need to offend that person. You need to shock that person out of that horrible position.” AMEN BROTHER!!! But instead, the cowardly MSM shrinks when it is their head on the line.
Maher brought up Charlie Hebdo and said he’s a little disturbed by the whole “soft bigotry of low expectations” when it comes to that magazine’s critics assuming that “Muslims aren’t able to control themselves.”
MSNBC’s Alex Wagner asked, “Isn’t the whole point of free speech not to judge people?” Cain shot back that when people threaten to kill just for expressing opinions, “it becomes virtuous to offend that person… [and] you need to shock them out of their horrible position.”
Former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee said, “You’re talking about hatred!” Maher found that a little mind-boggling in a conversation about people who kill for free speech. He said everyone should be on the side of Muslims who just want to live their lives and don’t draw attention to people mocking their faith.
Wagner and Cain threw down over the appropriateness of the Charlie Hebdo award, with Wagner arguing that journalists who travel the world and put themselves in danger are “practicing courageous acts” moreso than cartoonists.
Liberal Comedian Bill Maher Rips Deeply Stupid PC Liberals Like Media Matters … “Hey Media Matters Can I say One Thing to You, Shut the F*ck Up”
WOW, Uber-lib Bill Maher tells Media Matters to STFU …
What has happened lately to Bill Maher and his “fair & balanced” approach when it comes to criticizing liberals? During his most recent episode of HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ … the far Left liberal comedian ripped into “deeply stupid” PC liberals who cant take a joke and even went so far as to tell the far-LEFT Media Matters to “shut the f*ck up”. Go figure. Of course Maher’s idea of fair and balanced is mocking liberals 20% of the time on his show and conservatives 80%, up from 5% and 95%.
Maher said just like conservatives, liberals have crazies of their own they need to rein in. He brought up the controversy over the Economist cover on Latinos and how Media Matters covered it. The liberal media watchdog called it “a tired trope often used to confine the Hispanic community to oversimplified representation in the media.”
Maher reacted by telling Media Matters to “shut the f*ck up.”
He remarked, “How deeply stupid has the far-left become,” and said liberals just need to stop freaking out about every single little thing that doesn’t 100 percent conform to their worldview.
(VIDEO WARNING: Strong language)
Comedian Bill Maher went on a fiery diatribe against “deeply stupid” politically correct wing of liberalism on his show Friday, at one point telling far-left Media Matters to “shut the f*** up” with its fake outrage. Maher is very liberal himself and his comedic attacks are mostly aimed at Republicans and conservatives, but every now and then he goes after the left .
“Yes, we joke about everybody here. And that’s something a lot of liberals have forgotten how to do,” he added. “For folks who take such pride in their love of diversity, liberals increasingly seem to tolerate none in their own ranks. I don’t necessarily agree with Dolce and Gabbana, but what is the point of attacking people who are 95 percent on your side?”
He went on to mock celebrities like Courtney Love and Elton John who boycotted the brand over the comments.
But far-left Media Matters, a progressive media “watchdog,” got the brunt of Maher’s wrath for feigning outrage at an Economist cover that featured an American flag made of red peppers. Maher said the site claimed the cover “the sort of stereotype that ignores Latinos as a multifaceted community and relegates them to chili pepper consuming constituents.”
“Media Matters, can I say one thing to you? Shut the f*** up,” Maher said.
Uber-Liberal Bill Maher Calls American Sniper Chris Kyle a “Psychopath Patriot” on HBO’s ‘Real Time’
I GUESS LIBERAL BILL MAHER HAS BEEN GETTING TOO MUCH HATE MAIL FROM THE FAR LEFT TO TALK GOOD ABOUT AN AMERICAN HERO WHO KILLED RADICAL ISLAMISTS …
Bill Maher calls American hero Chris Kyle a “Psychopath Patriot”. The only redeeming quality of far-Left comedian Bill Maher was that he got terrorism, radical Islam and the Islamo-fascist killers who would sooner cut some ones head off than say hello. Or at least we thought. During the latest episode of HBO’s ‘Real Time,’ Bill Maher came out in his condescending tone, “The Hurt Locker made 17 million because it was a little ambiguous and thoughtful, and this one [the movie America Sniper] is just American hero, he’s a ‘Psychopath Patriot’ and we love him” Why, because that’s what liberals do, they mock American heroes because they hate the military. Even though Maher has ripped radical Islam in the past, to the horror of the radical LEFT, it would appear that Maher cannot support an actual American hero he made a difference in killing murderous Islamists.
Maher quoted Chris Kyle stating, “I hate the damn savages” and I love killing bad guys”. Maher then said, that doesn’t seem like a Christian thing to say. Wow really, an atheist like Maher is going to judge an individual it was to be a sniper, to kill the enemy, in order to protect Americans. Welcome to the hateful liberal mindset. Left Howie Dean tried to pile on and make a comparison that there is a lot of anger in the country and the people going to see the movie are angry Tea Party folk. Really Howie? This from Howie “I have a scream” Dean, you seem like a little hate-filled man yourself. Did we also say clueless? American Sniper is #1 at the box office again this week, bringing in over $200 million. Wow Howie, who knew there were that many Tea Party people out there. You better hope not.
This guy (the late Chris Kyle) basically says, ‘I’m going to fight on your side. I bet you if you looked at the cross-section of the tea party and people who see this movie there’s a lot of intersection.”
But a funny thing happened after Maher made is mocking and snarly comments regarding Chris Kyle, his guets turned against him. Two of Maher’s guests made the case that there is nuance in the movie, and that it’s not just about “killing savages.” They stated, it’s about the horror of war, the moral struggles a sniper faces and the battle with PTSD that rages on the home front.
“I can’t believe you came away with that impression of the film,” Mr. Stephens said to Mr. Maher. “What I saw was a movie that treats what veterans and soldiers go through in way that was subtle. It was not just about war it was about PTSD. It’s about what the wives of soldiers go through. And by the way the savages he’s talking about aren’t ordinary Iraqis, the savages are al Qaeda killers who put drills into children to enforce orders.”
Comedian Bill Burr backed up Mr. Stephens, telling Mr. Maher “You can’t sum up a man by one quote taken out of context.”
Bill Maher, calls Chris Kyle, American Sniper, a ‘Psychopath Patriot’
VIDEO – (content warning: strong language)
Is “American Sniper” just a mindless, pro-war action movie with a “psychopath” hero?
That’s what one liberal claimed — but he was quickly contradicted by his own guests.
Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” came out swinging against the blockbuster “American Sniper” on his show Friday night, complaining that the film doesn’t show any nuance and merely presents sniper Chris Kyle as an American hero.
“‘He’s a psychopath patriot and we love him,’” Maher said mockingly of the thousands of Americans who flocked to see the film.
EXIT QUESTION: I wonder if the only thing that separated Bill Maher from be beheaded by a savage radical Islamist was a sniper’s bullet if he would consider that sniper a “Psychopath Patriot”?
Comedian Jay Leno Says Hillary Clinton Seems Very Slow and Has Lost Her Fire on ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher
HILLARY CLINTON HAS LOST THE FIRE …
LEFTY comedian Jay Leno stated on HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, I don’t see the fire and she seems to be very slow making reference to Hillary Clinton. Leno than asked what was the age between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren, 15 years? Nope, 18 months. Isn’t it interesting that it is the LEFT, not the RIGHT that is making Hillary’s age an issue. Trust me, Republicans have enough material to go after the Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. The GOP does not need to reference her age, all they need to do is remind Americans of her miserable record and her foreign policy forever linked to Obama. How did that Hillary Russian reset turn out or Benghazi. In the end, can anyone even name one of her accomplishments, come one anyone? But has Ms. Clinton would say, “what different does it make?”
Since most of these attacks come from the LEFT, it seems like this is their way to sabotage Hillary’s run, even though she is way out ahead in the polls because of same recognition. Leno’s comments sounds an awful lot like the meme of Hillary does not have that new car smell and and Barack Obama making the reference that the American people, “you know, they’re going to want that new car smell” and “one that doesn’t have as much mileage as me.”
Comedian Jay Leno says he likes presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but she just seems so old.
Speaking of Clinton on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Leno commented, “I don’t see the fire.”
“Her and Elizabeth Warren are almost the same age,” Leno said, comparing Hillary to the Massachusetts senator beloved by the left wing of the Democratic Party. “And I see Elizabeth Warren come out — ‘boom’ — throwing punches. ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom.’”
“And I like her,” Leno continued, speaking of Hillary. “But she seems to be sort of, she seems very slow and very — I don’t see that fire, you know, that fire that I used to see, that I see in Elizabeth Warren. Because I say to people, ‘how much younger is Elizabeth Warren than Hillary?’ And people go, ‘oh, 15 years.’ No! 18 months.”
Legal Insurrection nails the 2016 Democrat Dilemma, Hillary Clinton “very old, slow” and lacking that new car smell, while Elizabeth Warren is unelectable.
Hmm, Uber-Lib Bill Maher has a lucid moment and spoke the truth on something other than ISIS and radical Islam …
During HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the always liberal opinionated comedian stated in regards to the Ferguson, Missouri shooting that Michael Brown was not acting like a “Gentle Giant”. He was acting like a thug. Of course Maher also had to call police officer Darren Wilson a “plain murderer,” even though it would appear that from information leaked from the grand jury states otherwise.
Calling Michael Brown a thug, does that make Maher a racist?
BILL MAHER: You know what else I find disturbing is that everybody in America just sides with their own people and doesn’t look at the facts. The cops, I saw on the news a couple of weeks ago, were wearing bracelets or something that said, “I am Darren Wilson.” Why do you want to throw your lot in with this plain murderer?
And Michael Brown’s people. I’m sorry, but Michael Brown’s people say he is a gentle giant. Well, we saw of when he was in that 7-11. No, he wasn’t a gentle giant. He was committing a robbery and he pushed that guy. He was acting like a thug, not a gentle giant. He certainly didn’t deserve to be shot for it.
EXIT COMMENT: Enough of calling Michael Brown an armed armed teenager. If he was going for the police officer’s gun as many accounts have stated, that does not make him unarmed and certainly not a gentle giant. Every year police officers are killed with their own guns. I wonder if the Ferguson, Mo story would have been covered differently if the officer’s name had been Nicola Cotton?
Ben Affleck gets his “liberal” lunch handed to him by Bill Maher …
Poor Ben Affleck was just a perplexed mess as for once he was not surrounded by individuals who were just there to agree with him in an echo chamber. Affleck was given a lesson into the real war on woman. However, I hardly believe that he thought such a thing would happen with his appearance with Bill Maher. Affleck had a look of disbelief when Maher said, “It is the only religion that acts like the Mafia. They will F*cking kill you if you say the wring thing, draw the wrong picture or write the wrong book.”
It was not too long ago when Maher ripped Charlie Rose a new one and informed him that Islam was not like other religions.
Affleck was noticeably uncomfortable and frustrated throughout the discussion, calling claims that there are widespread problems within the Islamic religion “racist” and “gross.” Maher said liberals should stick up for liberal principles that many in the Muslim faith do not value, such as freedom of speech and equality for women.
Later in the segment, Affleck said the United States has “killed more Muslims” than radical Islamists have killed Americans while asking Maher to lay out his solution.
“I can show you a Pew Poll of Egyptians, they are not outliers in the Muslim world that say like 90 percent of them believe that death is the appropriate response to leaving the religion,” Maher eventually responded. “If 90 percent of Brazilians thought death was the appropriate response to leaving Catholicism, you would think it was a bigger deal.”

When Liberals Attack Each Other … Bill Maher To Charlie Rose, To Claim that Islam Is Like Other Religions Is Naive And Plain Wrong … “Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it.”
IS THERE ANYTHING BETTER TO SEE THAN TWO LIBS GOING AFTER EACH OTHER?
Okay this is rather frightening, hell might have just froze over. In the course of a week I find myself first agreeing with Michael Moore and now Bill Maher. YIKES!!! During an interview with Charlie Rose, uber-lib Bill Maher and even bigger uber-lib Rose clashed over Islam when Rose tried to link Islam to Christianity and tried to disavow radical Muslims as representatives of the religion. Bill Maher refuted Rose in saying it is just naive and plain wrong to claim that Islam is like other religions. Then provided some common sense examples. It has always been the ultimate in hypocrisy how the LEFT would embrace Islam and condemn Christianity or Judaism. It is Islam that treats women as second class citizens, it is Islam that would have zero tolerance for gays or anyone else who was not of Islam. Yet most libs just turn a blind eye to it and pretend like it does not exist
MAHER: There are illiberal beliefs that are held by vast numbers of Muslim people that –
ROSE: A vast number of Christians too.
MAHER: No, that’s not true. Not true. Vast numbers of Christians do not believe that if you leave the Christian religion you should be killed for it. Vast numbers of Christians do not treat women as second class citizens.
MAHER: – do not believe if you draw a picture of Jesus Christ you should get killed for it. So yes, does ISIS do Khmer Rouge-like activities where they just kill people indiscriminately who aren’t just like them? Yes. And would most Muslim people in the world do that or condone that? No.
Rose went on to claim that “moderate Muslims” do not approve of the actions of radical groups like ISIS, Maher provided proof that it was not the case. Rose said the Koran does not teach Muslims to do “these kind of things.” Good grief, has this dude actually ever read the Koran?
MAHER: But most Muslim people in the world do condone violence just for what you think.
ROSE: How do you know that?
MAHER: They do. First of all they say it. They shout it.
ROSE: Vast majorities of Muslims say that?
MAHER: Absolutely. There was a Pew poll in Egypt done a few years ago — 82% said, I think, stoning is the appropriate punishment for adultery. Over 80% thought death was the appropriate punishment for leaving the Muslim religion. I’m sure you know these things.
ROSE: Well I do. But I don’t believe –
MAHER: So to claim that this religion is like other religions is just naive and plain wrong. It is not like other religious. The New York Times pointed out in an op-ed a couple weeks ago that in Saudi Arabia just since August 4th, they think it was, they have beheaded 19 people. Most for non-violent crimes including homosexuality.
Comedian Bill Maher nhas some advice for Hillary Clinton … “Just go away”.
Contrary to people saying that doing the book tour now will inoculate her from criticism in 2016, Maher said Clinton being constantly on TV and in the news will give way to a different result; namely, “we’re sick of you.” And people will grow tired of her by 2016 anyway.
And so, Maher advised Clinton, “Just go away. Go away for a while. We’re gonna see each other in a couple of years. A lot… Just go away, otherwise you’re going to blow this.”
Uber-Leftist Bill Maher & Conservative Dinesh D’Souza Battle Arianna Huffington & Lib Panel Over Islam, ” Liberals Too PC to Ever Condemn It ”
Condemning Islamist extremists and Muslim religion make strange bedfellows.
Who would have ever thought that liberal comedian Bill Maher and Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza would ever be on the same side of any topic? However, that is what happened on on Friday night HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher. The liberal comedian astonished his fellow leftist panel by arguing that the Islamic religion tends to influence horrific acts of violence and has become the “elephant in the room.” Maher was irked by how liberals “do not stand up for liberalism” and outright condemn brutal Islamic laws that go against values of equality and freedom, especially where women are concerned. Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza opined, claiming that most modern day terrorist attacks have some ties to Islam. He joked that you don’t see a lot of “Buddhist suicide bombers.” Comedian Baratunde Thurston warned that Islam did not have a “monopoly” on extremism as he reminded the panel that Christians also commit acts of violence. Maher then amazingly and correctly responded, “If this was the 14th century, I would be coming down on the Christians because that’s when they were too violent. Religions and cultures change.” WOW, nice. How progressive, liberals are still living and outraged by things that took place in the 14th century.
Maher makes the comment as the libs on the panel and in the audience had no idea what to do or say when Maher continued to question the evils of Islam, according to “Sharia Law, failure to perform Friday prayers could get you whippings or amputations. Because its a religion of Peace. [Uncomfortable audience response]. I know, I’m the bad guy because I am against the people who cut your arms off for not praying.”
“There’s no mention here of connecting this to the religion, which is always what I am seeking to do because I think that’s the elephant in the room,” Maher said. “And that in the religion at large, women are seen as property, second-class at best, often as property.”
Reason’s Matt Welch claimed the kidnappers’ ties to Islam are being highlighted in the media, but also agreed that the religion “is providing a disproportionate share of radical nut bags killing people.”
Huffington Post President Arianna Huffington and comedian Baratunde Thurston both warned Maher against condemning the entire religion because of the behavior of radicals. Thurston also claimed that Islam doesn’t have a “monopoly” on extremism.
“Kind of they do,” Maher said. “Not a monopoly, but perspective is important. … It’s the Titanic hitting the iceberg compared to Whitney Houston dying in her bathtub.”
To answer Bill Maher’s question regarding why liberals do not stand up to Islam and Sharia Law for their despicable treatment of women would mean they would have to admit that this is the real war on women. It is called the liberal double standard.
Bill Maher says, Liberals can be obnoxious …. ya think?
However, Maher had to admit liberals have made the “cultural resentment” on the right much easier to grasp, with the PC police telling people like him to censor jokes, Facebook providing over 50 genders, atheists suing over crosses, and all the rest of it. Maher admitted “liberals can be obnoxious” and people don’t like political “nagging.”
However, Maher warned that liberal paternalism is no reason to “cut off your nose to spite your face.” He said, “For every liberal with a cause who makes you go ‘Oh, shoot me,’ there’s a conservative with a gun who will.”
