Bill Maher a Racist?

Apparently he wants a real black president, which to him means someone who acts like a thug:

“I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt so you can see the gun in his pants. That’s — (in black man voice) ‘we’ve got a motherfu**ing problem here?’ Shoot somebody in the foot.”

Will he get a pass on this from his friends in the media? I’m surprised people thought that was funny.

  1. He’ll get a pass, courtesy of the media’s egregious double standard. If it were a conservative that made such comments, like Glenn Beck, Hannity, O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, etc. they’d be paraded out in the media’s equivalent of a town square and tarred and feathered.

  2. By Maher’s own thinking, wouldn’t the president he imagines just demand a bribe, and pay no mind to the oil spill?

    It isn’t as if gun-wielding pimps and drug dealers (regardless of color and ethnicity) are generally known for their high regard for the environment, or human health, or national energy policy.

  3. I thought his show would be better now that it’s on HBO, but it’s not.

  4. Maher just a comedian? Only in the sense he can try to use that “comedian” status to escape responsibility for any crap he spews. Maher aspires to being a pundit and not a comic.

    And what a fine example of crap is Maher’s latest crack about Obama. Remember the backlash against Imus for his racial ‘humor’? Funny how that reaction never applies to leftoids.

  5. Maher has been making off color comments since day one. Retarded children – Dead celebrities – Child molesters. – Terrorists – Religion – All favorite topics of his. A lifelong bachelor who dates Playboy models? Check. A review of his first novel in 1994 – “It’s hard to determine what’s most offensive: the emptiness of Maher’s characters, the hostility of their material or the way both author and characters treat women.”

    What did you expect from the guy who dressed as a dead Steve Irwin for Halloween?
