Hot on the heels of last week’s “comedy” routine comparing the US military to Michael Vick’s dogs, now Bill Maher explains why the Tea Party is a cult.
This is the same Bill Maher who gave the world “Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death” and “Pizza Man”. So yeah, I take him seriously on the issues of the day.
LOL @ Bill Maher – After watching the 2008 Presidential election cycle, complete with Obama evangelists in the MSM, Obama icons and Obama brainwashing, that Leftist swine has a whole lot of nerve comparing a thoughtful political protest movement to a cult. The biggest way you can tell a cult is when they don’t let you leave, like “Hotel California”. The Left doesn’t allow for changes of heart or epiphanies from experience, and so crucifies anyone who changes sides. Tea Party adherents don’t.
This is common enough. It’s what passes for sophisticated thought.
Even here on Pajamas we have such stellar logic as “Stack didn’t like the government”, “Tea Partiers don’t like the government” therefore “The Tea Party caused Stack”
And remember these are the very people that keep insisting that they’re much much smarter than the rest of us, and that if only they were given more power everything would be cake and beer.
Phooey on Bill Maher. I watched the segment in spite of my better judgement. One thing about taxes Bill… I don’t know about your taxes, but mine went up this year, and I’m not rich.
Oh, and flogging Sarah Palin at every turn is old. Watching Bill Maher and his ilk verbally bludgeon Governor HotPan… er, I mean Palin, over and over is like watching a child pick at a scab he just can’t leave alone. (Sorry, I love a hot Governor who knows which end of the M4 to point at a home invader :D)
Ah yes, the old Palin (or W, or Reagan) is stupid ploy. Always guaranteed to get a laugh from people who only tune into your show to prove to themselves how smart they are. Funny thing is, Maher’s knowledge base on any given issue is a bit on the shallow side. His staff does most of his “research” for him, then hands him a single page synopsis. What you here from Bill is the Power Point presentation of the facts. In this case, it looks like the staff didn’t get beyond listening to an Obama speech (that 95% figure is straight from the WH) for their information.
Pawlenty said to “smash the window of Big Government.” See, Big Government doesn’t actually have a window. It’s not a car, nor even a house. It’s the prevailing mood in the White House and on Capitol Hill.
See, Pawlenty was speaking in a way we describe as metaphorically. It’s a tough concept, I know, but I’m pretty sure people are smart enough to understand they’re not really supposed to take a real nine iron and smash a… a… — a what? — an political attitude?
Yes, even Tea Party people might be that smart enough to tell the difference between the actual and the metaphorical. Note, for example, that after Pawlenty’s speech was over, enraged CPAC attendees most distinctly did not raid local sporting good stores and storm Capitol Hill on a window-smashing spree.
Folks on the left, however, seem to be having some difficulty with the metaphor thing — which is odd, when you consider how many of them have degrees in English. One protest group showed up with real pitchforks and torches at a rally in Connecticut the other day. Maybe you could explain the concept to them, now that we’ve had this little chat.
“Pitchforks and torches”
Obviously they have difficulty with the the ‘hypocrit’ thing too. Considering all of the CO2 they emitted with their diatribe (which I could only stand about 10 seconds of) and the emissions from their torches, they’d have been better off to have skipped the English degrees and gotten Science degrees. On the other hand, some with science degrees started the climate change thing and well… oh forget it. No degrees of any kind are gonna help these folks.
Stephen, I think your rejoinder to Jack probably should have been addressed instead to the author of the piece he linked, PJM’s own Ron Rosenbaum. Just sayin’.
Stephen, sorry for not being clear. I’m quite against what Ron writes here. As McGehee says, you’re ire should be at Ron Rosenbaum.
For one thing he’s a man that thinks that if you’re against Universal Healthcare you should be against Veteran’s benefits (as it’s both big gov).
I was just being snarky by pointing out what’s going on in your, metaphorical, backyard.
Give Ron’s other recent posts a browse. You’ll find plenty of leftwing crack-pottery to mock right at home.
My sincerest apologies for misreading your meaning. Yes, please consider that directed in the right direction. Er, left.
I love your site and your opinions but I ‘m sorry… If I watch anything involving that idiot I have to ram an icepick into my brain to try and destroy any cells responsible for those memories. I completely trust you to snark this in the correct fashion on behalf of those of us who can’t. Thank you for this valuable service.
Listening to Maher feels like being lectured by a sneering 17-year-old. Honestly, I don’t think he’s ever been out in the real world.
marh is a reptilian creature who cares what he says.
