On the heels of the government shutdown comes another lunatic liberal rant from TV’s most obnoxious personality by the name of Bill Maher. On his HBO show ‘Real Time’, Maher outdid his own offensiveness when he dissed American Veterans by saying, “They’re the greatest generation; nobody said they were the brightest generation.” Bill Maher’s history and humor are both sorely lacking in their knowledge and aptness. If not for America’s intervention in WWII and the same Veterans who inadvertently saved Maher’s sorry behind – the ones he disparaged on HBO — Maher would probably have been put away for his strange sense of humor, which would not have appealed to Hitler at all. His short stature would have caused problems as well. If not for the sacrifices of America’s fighting force, Bill Maher’s insults under the garb of jokes would be collecting years of torture in some forgotten camps.
Americans are now rightly appalled at this blatant display of disrespect for its Veterans! Bill Maher may have been miffed that once again, he was ignored and denied any Emmys (where he has been nominated 32 times in the past 17 years, but has never won.) Maher has competed in nine different categories over the years, missing the gold as writer, performer and producer for Real Time With Bill Maher, Politically Incorrect With Bill Maher, and his standup specials. Obviously, the people who vote at the Emmys do not think he is either funny or entertaining enough. Maher’s humor (if it can be called that) does not excite laughter at all; in fact, it stinks and stings!
Bill Maher has made it a habit to denigrate anyone who is NOT a political liberal like him and has consistently displayed special vengeance for conservatives (and conservative women) as well. The Veterans who were the brunt of Bill Maher’s ‘jokes’ were denied entry to WWII Memorial in Washington. Maher was additionally appalled that they had the temerity to take photographs with Michele Bachmann, a Republican. According to Maher, Republicans were responsible for the shutdown and that Veterans should have shown more sense than taking pictures with them! Perhaps dissing the Veterans was going to soothe Maher’s evil soul.
This left liberal lunatic does not get it that he is not a likable personality on TV. Worse are his below the belt jabs at people he dislikes, most of whom happen to be conservatives, armed forces, veterans, Christians, and all who do not adhere to Obama-like-foolishness. It’s time HBO re-think its contract with Bill Maher. HBO is a commercial venture; and if its numbers fall too low, or enough viewers pull out in protest, or sponsorship of Maher’s despicable humor declines significantly, that would be enough to teach this dirty-mouthed moron a few lessons in humor and political incorrectness.
