More from the fount of all balls-out douchebaggery.
In his final New Rule of the season, Bill Maher calls on Americans to put aside their political differences.
And does so smarmily, sanctimoniously, and insincerely, as one would expect. In fact, he gets busy right away with a pluperfect illustration of exactly why rapprochement is neither possible nor desirable. To wit:
“Lately we’ve been hearing more and more about a second civil war which sounds impossible in this modern, affluent country. It is not,â Maher said. âWe talk about Trump as an existential threat, but his side sees Democratic control of government the exact same way. When both sides believe the other guy taking over means the end of the world, yes, you can have a civil war.”
âYes, I have said things like that but Iâm going to try to stop because I have learned that the anti-intellectualism on the right doesnât come primarily through stupidity it comes from hate. Telling people that you think theyâre irredeemable is what makes them say âYou know what, Iâd rather side with Russia than you.'”
Okay, he’s right about the part I boldfaced; I admit, I DO hate his arrogant, egotistical ass.
Stand back in slack-jawed wonder, folks: the man claims he’s “going to try to stop…” and in the SAME FUCKING SENTENCE, insultingly dismisses us as “anti-intellectual,” “stupid,” and driven by irrational, unreasoning “hate.” Why? Because we voted for someone he doesn’t like…and we won. No other reason.
Stupefying, isn’t it? Can it really be possible that Maher has his head stuffed so far up his own ass that he can’t see a problem with such slanderous insults? Can he really be unaware that such derogation can only inspire the very hatred he claims to be concerned about? That it would take an insensate clod indeed not to react quite negatively to such taunting? That if this country does descend into civil war and chaos, HE—along with his fellow self-proclaimed “elite” Leftists and their flat refusal to abide by the results of the 2016 election—will be to blame for striking the spark that ignites the conflagration? Is it even remotely possible that ANYBODY is that stupid? That bereft of the slightest trace of self-awareness, of empathy, of tolerance, of a sense of proportion and human decency?
No; I can’t buy it, I just can’t. Seems more likely to me that this sorry excuse for a man isn’t worried that “there will be blood.” He’s worried that there WON’T be. Because from where I’m sitting, it sure looks like he’s actively trying to instigate it.
But wait, it gets even better yet:
“We are going to have to learn to live with each other or else there will be blood,â Maher said. âSo donât freak out if Ellen [DeGeneres] sits next to George Bush at a football game. Bush was not my idea of a good president but I never worried that he was going to lock up his political opponents or reporters or me.â
“If you canât see the difference between that and Donald Trump then Democrats are doomed,” he added.
Izzat so, Stable Genius? Tell ya what: get back to me when Trump actually, y’know, LOCKS SOME OF YOU PRICKS UP, whydon’tcha. Locks you up, that is, NOT for violent protest/riots, gang-assaulting elderly Trump supporters, driving them public spaces, or conspiring to spy on and overthrow the duly-elected President illegally. Because I have to tell you, you simpering pantywaists look mighty foolish bleating and weeping about Nazis and Hitler and such from OUTSIDE the walls of a concentration camp or gulag—especially after so vilely attacking him, his wife, his children, and his supporters non-stop, since before he even took office.
No, if Trump is actually a Nazi, a fascist, the second coming of Der Fuhrer his own self, he sure is a feeble and lousy one. Every day you mentally-deficient juveniles spend free, above ground, and physically whole is a stronger rebuke to your unhinged venom and exaggerated paranoia than any I can think of right offhand. You folks really need to dial it back a bit; you’re making abject fools of yourselves, and that’s the very least of the problems your asinine play-acting presents.
Which is NOT to say that, should you twerps carry on as you have been, things will never change. It is only the forebearance of the decent people you so hatefully defame that has spared you miserable tapeworms till now. Your ability to riot, destroy, and thuggishly assault without consequence is NOT irrevocable, nor is it permanent. Word from Bon Scott:
