Yes, far-left comedian and political commentator Bill Maher has aimed some of his super-edgy criticism lately at Democrats, as Western Journalism has noted. However, it seems that the aggressively sarcastic Mr. Maher simply can’t help but return to his old ways and launch the kind of ugly, vicious attack on Republicans for which he’s gained a reputation on his HBO show Real Time.
What Maher let fly on the latest edition of his program was the kind of shocking insult and demeaning affront that, had a conservative said such a thing about a liberal Hispanic politician, there would certainly be relentless charges of mean-spirited racism leveled amidst the demands for an immediate firing, if not a public flogging. You can just imagine how fast the protest groups and Hispanic advocacy organizations would form massive picket lines outside the HBO studios. You might even wonder if Eric Holder would launch a formal Justice Department investigation.
What did Bill Maher say that many decent people would certainly find repugnant? Paul Bedard of The Washington Examiner points out the short segment in which Maher made a demeaning and derogatory comment about newly announced GOP presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio. Bedard quotes the Media Research Center’s Brent Baker, who offers a scathing observation about liberal hypocrisy:
“Imagine the reaction if a conservative made such a stereotypical, derogatory and racially-tinged joke about a liberal Democrat who is Hispanic. Saying it was just a joke would not allay the outrage. It sure is nice to be a liberal so you’re able to get away with such things.”
By clicking on the video above, you can watch for yourself what Bill Maher said that demonstrated no apparent awareness of the abject hypocrisy of his so-called “comedy.” You see, it wasn’t that long ago that Maher delivered a stinging on-the-air rant against liberals who bully and demean people when it suits their agenda.
