Hey friends, why do you think it's ok to call Conservatives racist but this character can be as racist as he likes and it's ok?

I can't stand the guy. He's said some nasty things about women, too.
Im curious to hear what has he said that is nasty about women? Sure he can be a little over the top with arrogance, but on the whole he's pretty spot-on in his observations.
I think calling a woman a bimbo, a tw@t, or a c*nt is pretty nasty. That's my opinion. You might not mind it, but I find it offensive.

Well he mostly only did that stuff towards Sarah Palin so you won't find anyone concerned about that.
a Rush Limbaugh article? Cmon Habee. Maher is a comedian, Limbaugh I dont know what he is but I dont think he he is known to be a comedian.
So even if the man said these things the fact Rush commented on it makes it ok?
Rush?? The article was written by Kirsten Powers of The Daily Beast.
It really shouldn't matter who commented on it if the man actually said it. RIGHT?
its basically about Rush and why he called someone a slut. Calling a Georgetown Law student and joking about Sarah Palin?
One is a private individual and the one asked to be in the public eye making herself fair game.
I think what Rush said was terrible. I don't think you read the whole article, though. The writer also discusses Maher's misogynistic comments, along with some by Ed Schultz and Olbermann.
I DID read the article.
Like I said Maher is a comedienne and makes his jokes about fair game. I don't defend Maher's language, but equating his misogyny with Limbaugh's is absurd.
Agreed, it's an off color joke in poor taste but nothing else and certainly not the harshest or most offensive comedy routine around.
I agree that Rush's is worse, but that doesn't make Maher's any less offensive. I don't like to hear vile comments about women in rap songs, either.
Why is what Rush said worse? The student gave a speech or whatever so she is fair game.
I don't particularly like the guy but he does air out the issues every week and blows apart the BS that the politicians offer as explanations for their actions. He is full of himself but he is better acquanted with the issues than most. He is pro Obama to a fault ( donating a million dollars to his campaign) but is quick to critisize him when Obama doesn't take cheap shots.
He is kind of like listening to Howard Stern, I don't necessarily agree with all he says but I want to hear what he says next. LOL.
Just because he is a liberal, doesn't mean all liberals are like that. I am voting Democrat this time, but I am not a liberal by the way. Actually I am an independent. Being liberal and being Democrat aren't the same thing. Some are moderates.
Wow. What a great piece of investigative reporting from the site dedicated to finding and exposing liberal media bias.
Pulitzer contender right here, folks.
Newsflash: Bill Maher used to date Ann Coulter.
I don't usually trust that source, either, MM, but there's a video clip of Maher saying it. Kinda hard to argue with that.
Yeah, enough of not liking who brought it up. I notice he gets a pass from MM because he dated Ann C.?
What up with that?
I don't dispute that he said it.
I have no doubt that he did.
He says crass things.
We expect Bill Maher to say crass things.
Just as we expect Ann Coulter to say crass things.
They cancel each other out in the crass department.
Lol. I agree. I'll bet they were a barrel of fun on a date!
You are kind of making my point that we seem to make it easy to find a way to dismiss him out of hand.
Some people actually think he is a factual person.
Saw some show one night with Bill Maher, Keith Olbermann and Bernie Sanders at the same table discussing things and was wondering when the black hole would form.
Bill Maher does not speak for me... I see him as a comedian and a social commentator, nothing more.
Please, call Bill Maher a racist all you want. He's also a misogynist, Islamophobe, and a flat out bigot in many other areas. In fact, call out racism when you see it. When a high profile pundit paints black people as violent and stupid, it should be met with scorn. When he advocates carpet bombing Arab nations because he's not a fan of their (or any) religion, tell him to go blow.
Racism exists in many spectrums. It is often more overt in conservative speech, but skeptics have a bad habit of trying to use science to support their internalized racism and misogyny. Voting for the black dude doesn't make you not racist. It just makes you marginally less racist than someone who won't vote for anyone who isn't white.
Folks here need to stop watching so much tv and get out to some comedy clubs.

I hate racism, I hate racist people, I think the Civil War was over slavery. I've seen this country embrace the self evident truth that all men are created equal, and the doctrine of Martin Luther King, until now.People get fired from their jobs and shunned from society (rightfully so) for spouting...

When NBC showed a commercial spot for the Autumn premier of a new comedy series entitled "Animal Practice" it used a monkey perfoming on the rings. An obvious effort to capitalize on the on going Olympics coverage as a means of sparking interest in the new show. That...

Do you believe that the ascendancy of President Trump was influential in the Charlottesville riots &other acts of racism by the Alt-Right & other White Supremacist groups?
by Holle Abee 12 years ago
Yes, I think they do exist! Take, for example, the liberal/progressive Alternet's treatment of Herman Cain. Allusions to "black garbage pail kid" and "monkey" are included.I have no problem with the black writer's opinion - I just wish he hadn't been so disrespectful to Cain. He...

The linked article below tells the story. The rightwinger ought to know when it is not time to open old wounds. This man Hannity is an insensitive clod, allowed to spout off on a major network. Is it any wonder so many opposed to the Zimmerman verdict continue to protest? The right always complain...
