As Sean Hannity pointed out on his radio show yesterday, there is no way the Obama administration is going to call on his super PAC to return Bill Maher’s $1M dollar donation they received about a month ago. They cannot afford Bill Maher’s filthy-mouthed comments towards them along with the accompanying anger from his base of loyal gremlins who live in their parents’ basements — thus cutting into a major part of Obama’s voting base.
Nevertheless, the White House is in a very tough position. You have a firm owned by Anita Dunn coaching Sandra Fluke. You have Bill Burton who refuses to return the donation of a million dollars by Bill Maher. You have Axelrod and Maher himself making the lamest excuses ever known to man.
Of course, this was all in response to the Sandra Fluke controversy where even Rush apologized.
Since the push for Burton’s PAC to return the donation to Maher surfaced, I notice the headlines about Rush’s sponsors seem to be disappearing. My guess is it’s because of the media’s purposeful desire to put this all to rest suddenly. The same lamestream media who over-reported in the case of Rush, and are now helping the White House and liberals explain their ways out of the mess they got themselves in.
Real Americans in high volume are noticing their hypocrisy. Yet, Bill Burton, David Axelrod, and even Bill Maher himself are holding true to their alternate reality: what Bill Maher did was not the same thing as what Rush did!
“Well, the notion that there is an equivalence between what a comedian has said during the course of his career, and what the de facto leader of the Republican Party said to sexually degrade a woman who engaged in a political debate of our time is crazy. There’s no similarity about what Rush Limbaugh said, lying about the argument that Miss Fluke was making, a law student at Georgetown, and what a comedian has said in the past.”
“But understand that these words that Maher has used in his standup act are a little bit different than — not excusable in any way — but different than a guy with 23 million radio listeners using his broadcast platform to malign a young woman for speaking her mind in the most inappropriate, grotesque ways.
Nor does Bill Maher play the role in the Democratic party that Rush Limbaugh plays in the Republican party.”
“I used a rude word about a public figure who gives as good as she gets, who’s called people ‘terrorist’ and ‘un-American.’ “
First, to Axelrod and Burton, why does it matter that Maher is a “comedian” who was allegedly performing “stand-up?” Rush is an entertainer just as Maher is. The only difference is that Rush has more listeners than Maher has viewers. That’s not the point. I am getting a little tired of disgusting remarks being excused for the purposes of comedy. If the comedian doesn’t want to be subjected to scrutiny, then the comedian should avoid talking about politics. Entertainment comes in all forms: action, comedy, drama, etc. Picking one genre as the qualifier for the Democrat party’s indecency towards women might be acceptable in their land of double standards, but we all know it’s nonsense.
Second, Maher does not get a qualifier for the fact that Sarah Palin is a public figure. Sandra Fluke has a PR firm for God sake. She wants to be a public person, that is for sure. The fact is, she became one when she went before a bogus committee and spoke on camera into a microphone with the intent of having an impact on public policy.
Unlike Fluke, when Palin entered the political arena, she didn’t have to hire a PR Firm for it. She did it the old fashioned way of meeting the people and earning their approval as a servant.
Regarding Bill Maher’s lame excuses, I have never heard him use such disgusting words to describe his good friend, Ann Coulter.
Who has said more outrageous things about Democrats? Sarah Palin or Ann Coulter? Ann Coulter is the first to say Democrats are guilty of treason, they were “un-American.” These worked well for her when she was trying to sell books.
When Palin uses a word like “terrorist,” she uses it in context of actual people who set bombs off with the intent of making some radical statement.
Palin never referred to the President as a “terrorist.” She was talking specifically about Bill Ayers who indeed is a domestic terrorist who is not only proud of what he did by setting off bombs at government buildings, but wished he had done more.
In a twisted way, as a matter of fact, Maher is admitting how sensitive the left and their ideology is to Bill Ayers. Why would he cry over someone calling a terrorist a “terrorist?”
And finally, even though Axelrod claims that Maher’s comments are different because he’s a comedian, he has conveniently decided to cancel an upcoming appearance on Bill Maher’s show.
Say, since Maher is nothing but a comedian and entertainer, can someone explain to me why the President’s chief communications officer was going on his show? Say Mr. Burton, could that make Maher the “de facto leader” of the Democrat Party? Anyone in their right mind wouldn’t have to turn to Bill Maher for comedy when they have the current White House to look to.
The fact is, the White House’s rhetorical bricks are crumbling one by one on this issue which is why we cannot allow it to go away. Obama’s super PAC must return the money to Bill Maher. After that, we will move on to Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, and other misogynistic liberal males who’ve been spewing this garbage against conservative women for far too long.
It’s a giant can of worms — and I thank the Democrats and lamestream media for opening it.
