Bill Maher calls African-American Brain Surgeon “Dumbass”

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 23, 2013

Bill Maher hosts HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher”.  He is one of the high-priests of the new religion of Progressive Politics.  During last Friday’s show Maher went on the attack of African-American surgeon, Dr. Ben Carson.  It is interesting to compare the credentials of both gentlemen, starting with Carson:

  • Carson was raised by a single and poor mother in inner-city Detroit.
  • He graduated from high school with honors.
  • Undergraduate degree was in psychology at Yale University.
  • Graduated University of Michigan’s school of medicine, focusing on psychiatry and neurosurgery.
  • At 33 years of age, Carson became the youngest physician to head a major division at Johns Hopkins.
  • Carson was the first surgeon to separate conjoined twins at the head.
  • Carson is a director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins, as well as a professor of neurosurgery, oncology, plastic surgery, and pediatric medicine.

Now let’s take a look at Maher’s resume:

  • Born in a well-to-do white family with his father, William Maher Sr., being an editor for NBC.
  • Graduated with a degree in English from Cornell University in 1978.
  • Appeared in comedy clubs in New York and Los Angeles.
  • Had bit roles in films and television including D.C. Cab (1983); the TV series Sara (1985); and Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death (1989).
  • Maher made stand-up appearances on The Tonight Show and Late Night with David Letterman.
  • In 1993 he began Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher.  The show was canceled in 2002 after Maher said that the United States had been more “cowardly” than the 9/11 terrorists for using cruise missiles.
  • Since 2003 Maher has hosted HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher.

So we have African-American Dr. Ben Carson, who came from poverty to become a self-made world-famous surgeon.  He has saved countless lives and served many thousands.  On the other hand we have Bill Maher, who came into this earth with a silver spoon in his mouth and his lily white.  His only claim to fame is that he makes some people laugh and others cry.  Not one life has been saved by this gentleman.  With this background, he has the gall to say of Dr. Carson:

“And he [Carson] believes the Earth is 6,000 years old, and that homosexuality is akin to bestiality, and that the Bible calls for a flat fax.  He’s half brilliant brain surgeon, half Tea Party dumbass.  He doesn’t just operate on conjoined twins, he is one.  “He’s also someone who many Republicans are encouraging to run for president in 2016, and why not.  There’s no more attractive figure in the Republican Party these days than an anti-intellectual with an advanced degree.  People like Antonin Scalia, Ted Cruz and Bobby Jindal who are accomplished scholars on the outside, and on the inside a creamy layer of Michele Bachmann.”

Maher’s attack on Carson is a disgrace.  It is typical of how white elitists treat successful African-Americans who do not ask for the plantation owner’s assistance.  It is also an example of what serves for intellectual discussion on the Left.  Instead of addressing issues, the Left attacks any who dares to disagree with their positions and responds with mudslinging and intellectual bigotry.  If those who disagree with the Left’s neo-religion happen to have darker skin or be female, the attacks are especially gruesome.  Their new fanaticism has dangerous similarities to fascism.

Nancy Pelosi’s Daughter Shows Superior Intellect

Posted by Steve Markowitz on March 19, 2012

Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra, is a freelance journalist who sometimes works with Bill Maher.  While one might expect the combination of these two will result in only Leftist dribble, Alexandra Pelosi has shown superior intellect and common sense than that of her mother.

Earlier this month Alexandra showed a clip on Maher’s show that included brief interviews with some Southerners who were fairly characterized as rednecks.  The folks interviewed were lacking in certain logic skills and intellectual capabilities.  Not surprisingly, in the show it was brought out that Mississippi is a Republican state, which allowed Bill Maher and his Leftist audience to have some good laughs.

After the laughs subsided, Maher then did something he since likely regretted.  He invited young Pelosi to come up with a video that would make the Left uncomfortable.  She was more than up to the task, as seen in the video below.  Alexandra, a New Yorker, decided to interview folks at the local welfare office within a block of her apartment stating: “It’s not as if I have to go too far to find the freeloading welfare queens.”  Those interviewed are bilking the system and Pelosi appropriately compared to them to other leeches, including some industries, that are living off the American taxpayer.

During the on-air discussion with Maher, Pelosi took her fellow Democrats to task for helping to create the entitlement mentality and chastising the mainstream media for the death of journalism.  She concluded that her Democrat Party is losing the working man that for many years was the center of the Party’s strength because of related issues.

While this Blog has previously posted videos from Maher’s show, the purpose was mainly to show how despicable an individual Bill Maher is.  The video below falls in the category of good journalism.  It is evident that Alexandra Pelosi has a clearer view of the world than her more famous mother, Nancy Pelosi.

Maher Takes Occupy Movement to the Woodshed

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 6, 2012

It is amusing watching the Left begin to eat their young.  The latest episode included Real Time host Bill Maher attacking the Occupy Movement.  On a one of his recent HBO shows, Maher said of the Occupiers:

“Let me ask you about another occupation, because this is – and you would be good on this too, panel, the occupation, the Occupy Wall Street, because similar to Afghanistan, when you occupy anything for too long people do get pissed off.  And as I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich.  Like, you know what – get a job.  Only because, you know, the people who originally started, I think they went home and now it’s just these anarchist stragglers.  And this is the problem when you, you know, when your movement involves sleeping over in the park.  You wind up attracting the people who were sleeping over in the park anyway.”

And I think that’s where we are now with the Occupy movement.  They did a great job bringing the issue of income and equality to the fore, but now it’s just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution.”

Mr. Maher has once again shown how little strategic vision Progressives have.  Initially, they were pleased to support the radicals in the Occupy Movement, as long as the riffraff attacked only conservatives.  Joining Maher in support of the Movement were leaders of the Democratic Party including Obama and Pelosi.  However, the Left can no longer control the monster they help create.  With the Occupiers beginning to attack Democrats and getting too close to the swank apartments that wealthy Progressives live in, the Left now attempts to place the genie back in the bottle.

Watch the video below and chuckle.

Ann Coulter Refuses to Call Bill Maher on his Vulgarities

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 28, 2011

Ann Coulter, a darling of the politically Right, recently showed inconsistency to her often spoken moral outrage.  Last week, appearing on Sean Hannity’s show, Hannity rightfully took radical Leftist Bill Maher to task for vulgar, sexist and bigoted comments that he made, video included below.  That led to Coulter responding by saying of Meyer: I obviously don’t believe in his politics, I like him, he’s a true and loyal friend, he always has been,” and finally added: “he bought me dinner, so I’m not going to say anything bad about it… I’m easy.  I’m a cheap date.”

Selective morality is but a notch above no morality.  Befriending those with different political views is entirely appropriate and American.  However, befriending one so vile as Maher brings to question not only Coulter’s judgment, but her convictions.

Bill Maher Spouts More of his Sexism on Palin and Bachmann

Posted by Steve Markowitz on July 16, 2011

This was posted today on Newsbuster.org.  It shows Bill Maher, and his leftist audience who applaud this stuff, to be noting more than misogynistic and sexist deep down to the core.  His words and a link to the video are supplied below.

As Jim Mahoney, who sent this one in, so correctly states:

Two for one from the same show.  First, we have Bill Maher showing why he is the least classy guy on TV as he unleashes a sexist attack on Michele Bachman and Sarah Palin and then tells us it isn’t sexist because they are stupid.   Why is it then that any Conservative who has a legitimate policy disagreement with Barack Obama is automatically labeled a racist.  Nor have I ever heard any conservative say anything remotely this vile about Obama’s intelligence, race or family.

BILL MAHER:  And finally, New Rule: Republicans have to stop thinking up intricate psychological explanations for why liberals don’t like Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann.  Let me save you all some time.  Are you ready?  Because they’re crazy people, people who are not that bright and full of awful ideas.  Pretty much the exact same reasons we didn’t care for George Bush and made jokes about him.  So trust me, it’s not because they have breast. It’s because they are boobs.

Now, I’m not saying that sexism doesn’t exist and isn’t real.  And we can’t, but we can’t throw around the word “sexist” just to stop people like me from pointing out that Michele Bachmann, now running second for the Republican presidential nomination, isn’t a dangerous nincompoop.  And when I point out that Sarah Palin is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a whiner, a professional victim, a scold, a know-it-all, a chiseler, a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a strange family of inbred weirdos straight out of “The Hills Have Eyes,” that’s not sexist. I’m saying it because it’s true, not because it’s true of a woman.

Bill Maher: Another Progressive Bigot Comes Out of the Closet

Posted by Steve Markowitz on April 9, 2011

What does Progressive Leftist Bill Maher do when he is unhappy with President Obama?  He resorts spouting anti-Semitism.  This past Friday Maher said (video below):

“I heard him a couple of times saying, “You know what? We met the Republicans what they asked, and then we gave them more.”  That’s like your lawyer saying to you,  “You know, I went into the chambers with the judge and the prosecutor, and my first offer was 40 years to life for you. And I think I can get your tailgating charge moved up to manslaughter.  And that’s my first offer.”  What is wrong with these people?  He is a terrible negotiator.  Does he not even know a Jew?”

Adding an exclamation point to his bigotry, Maher then showed a poster for replacing Glenn Beck on Fox News that depicted Joe Lieberman doing a program called, “Morning Jew.”

For years bigotry has been gaining traction in Leftist circles.  In earlier years it manifested itself mainly on the Left’s fringes with the likes of Louis Farrakhan and Pastor Wright.  It is becoming more mainstream in the Left.  Maher joins other Leftist bigots, as previously post on this Blog:

NPR’s Vivian Schiller attacking Zionist and Christians.

Code Pink calling for Clarence Thomas to be lynched.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell saying the Michael Steele answers to “his masters”.

Helen Thomas telling Jews to go back to Germany.

Oliver Stone indicating that Jews have overblown the Holocaust.

Congressman Paul Kanjorski demeaning minorities.

MSNBC’s Chris Mathews forgets that Obama is black for a few minutes.

Cynthia Tucker taking off on Michael because he is black.

When examples of racism and bigotry from the Left are outed, inevitably Progressive elitists offer excuses such as “they know what is in the person’s heart and therefore that person could not be a racists”.  The Left has wrapped racism in the covers of political correctness for their own continence.  This is a dangerous slippery slope that can lead to fascism.  It is the same slide that allowed half the country to vote for president a man who admittedly attended a bigoted church for twenty years.

Progressive Bill Maher Accuses Obama of not being a Christian

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 13, 2011

Last night on Real Time, Leftist Bill Maher made two accusations about President Obama.  First, Maher got defensive about Obama’s supposed move to the center since the elections.  Maher correctly indicated that Obama is a far left Progressive at heart.  However, it was Maher’s second claim that was remarkable when he repeatedly said that Obama is not a Christian, but a “secular humanist”, as seen in the video clip below.

Maher’s comment on Obama not being a Christian is remarkable on many fronts:

  • The media will say little of Maher’s claim.  Imagine the outcry if Sean Hannity or anyone of notoriety on the Right made such a claim.
  • It is amazing that to many on the Left, it is ok to claim Obama is not a Christian if he is instead claimed to be an atheist.  However, it is unacceptable to claim he is not a Chretien if he is accused of being instead a Muslim.  It seems the Left that has an anti-Muslim bias.
  • Maher’s implied claim that Obama faked his Christianity for political reasons is the most troubling possibility on two fronts.  First, it implies that Obama will do anything in the name of being elected.  Second, it begs the question as to why the President chose a racist church to fake his credentials.

Is Obama the worst type of politician who will do and/or say anything in the name of power, or is Bill Maher so fearful of faith that he cannot even consider the possibility that one of his own on the Left has some religion?  Or both?
