Bill Maher complained to Jimmy Kimmel about Michael Bloomburg making “liberals look like bullies who want to tell people what to do.”
“Oh, ugh,” Maher responded, wrinkling his nose in disdain. “I don’t like it. You know, I think it gives liberals a bad name,” he said. “It makes liberals look like bullies who want to tell people what to do. They never met a regulation they didn’t like.”
Interesting how he phrased that. He is concerned that Nanny Bloomburg makes liberals look like bullies. He is not concerned when liberals are bullies, such as when Bill Maher calls Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann “bimbos” and other words I would rather not repeat here. As the progressive feminist site (!) Shakesville says, Bill Maher is one of the biggest haters and bullies out there.
Now, it’s no secret that I don’t like Bill Maher, who relies on deeply misogynist, routinely homophobic, fat-hating, ableist, transphobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic, religion-hating jokes, and is a one-man rape joke machine, and then wonders why it is that marginalized people in the US tend to disagree with his assertion that we’ve got it so good here; what the [deleted]are we complaining about?
I must admit hearing that Maher irritates politically correct feminist leftists that much makes me think there is hope.
Though Maher is late to the world of reality, it’s possible he might eventually open his eyes. Bill, the truth is that liberals as you call them, or leftists as I call them, really are bullies. They never met a regulation or ill-conceived law they didn’t like. They hate the idea of allowing freedom to people who don’t think the way they do, and they would rather control everyone. Regulations on “salt, tobacco products, trans-fats, soda, firearms, breast milk, prescription medication, earbud headphones, and more” are only the beginning of the controls leftists will force on the people. Eventually, even Bill’s favorite pastime of snorting cocaine off the bellies of hookers will be so extra super-duper illegal he might end up in prison for it.
And that’s the most ironic thing in this whole story. Bill Maher is a scofflaw who routinely breaks the law.. Maybe it gives him a thrill. Maybe he’s addicted to hookers and cocaine. I don’t know. But the fact is he’s complaining about yet more useless laws he will break without a second thought. Maybe he is actually thinking of normally law abiding people being turned into criminals by the actions of an overbearing government, maybe not, but if everyone who serves fois gras sauteed in goose fat and salted properly becomes a criminal then only criminals will have fois gras. And the fois gras eaters and the chefs who prepare it will be in the same wing of the prison with Bill Maher and others with his predilection for hookers and cocaine.
At least if you’re going to jail anyway, as it seems we all will under the lefty rush to criminalize everything that isn’t mandatory, then that would be my pick of the jails. See you there at the buffet table.
