Bill Maher wants Romney to win to stop “the rise of the apes”, referring to Herman Cain
Conservative Guild ^ | November 14, 2011 | Chakam

Posted on 11/15/2011 4:26:58 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Yes, you read that right. Bill Maher, after the mention of Herman Cain’s lead over Romney, says Romney is the only thing standing between us and the rise of the apes. This comment was made during an interview given by George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s Good Morning America, Monday morning.

If this doesn’t make the headlines tomorrow, and if this isn’t one of the top stories on the MSM news programs, we will all know for certainty the double-standard hypocrisy of the Leftists.

From Newsbusters, via Weasel Zippers.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Yet, he’s, he’s still leading the field. Still is. I mean, he’s starting to fall just a little, but still leading the field.

MAHER: But, that’s just because they hate Mitt Romney.

STEPHANOPOULOS: They do.

MAHER: You have got to feel bad for Mitt Romney. I mean, he’s been led, so far, by Trump, then Bachmann. Then Perry. Then Cain.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But, he kinda hangs in there. He’s everyone’s second choice.

MAHER: I’m rooting for him. You know? Because, look, in a country with only two parties, the Republican can always win. I mean, at least he eats with a knife and fork. I mean, he is all that stands between us and the rise of the apes.

Now just imagine if Rush, Sarah, Ann Coulter, Ted Baxter or anyone else to the right of Van Jones had said something like that about Mr. Obama.

Bill Maher wants...to stop “the rise of the apes”, referring to Herman Cain.

If ANYONE on the Republican side had said this it would be news for two weeks.

Of course Maher will sing a different tune if Romney is the nominee, and starts talking about the Mormon craziness.

Obviously, there’s a double standard... and I can’t stand Maher ... but with that said I don’t think he meant this to be a racist statement.

Big surprise, that just puts him on the same page as Carl Rove, Brooks, Krauthhammer, Hume, Medved, and the rest of the Republican establishment together with the MSM.

If a Republican had said this the media would have broken into regular programming to start spewing how this is hate speech blaa blaa blaa..but when a progressive a-hole like Maher says it(This guy has serious and I mean SERIOUS mommy issues) its no big deal, hey he’s just a comedian right..Id love to tell him to his face exactly what I think of him

Does Bill Maher work for the GOP these days? He sure sounds like Karl Rove, Ed Rollins, David Frum and all the other RINOs. Actually, referring to Herman Cain as an ape is actually nicer than some of the garbage the RINOs have thrown at him lately.

Trent Lott committed the offense of saying that Strom Thnurmond would have made a fine president and Trent Lott is gone. He said something nice to a man on his 100th birthday and liberals went ballistic and republicans went into retreat.

Well, there’s only one other way of interpreting it, and it’s hardly less bigoted.

The “rise of the apes” is his Darwinian formulation for us ordinary folks, who don’t belong to the elite class of media moguls, like Bill Maher.

“Second to LAST choice. Only Huntsman is worse.”

For me the Mitt is 3rd to last with Huntsman 2nd to last and Paulkook way way down entrenched in last place in the category all his own.

Seem like the RINOs can stoop as low as the Rats, but I'm sure Maher hasn't worked in years.

“I don’t think he meant this to be a racist statement.”

I think the point is the double standard. Remember the New York guy that used the word niggardly (correctly) in a statement and was forced to resign because he should have know blacks that do not understand proper English would be offended. Forget what the word or the statement meant. Or did Sarah Palin really mean to target Giffords as in shoot her. Of course not, but the media sure spun it that way.

Add to that list Dana Perrino & Bill O'Reilly. All above TV faces are looking for "political" experience.

"...if this isn’t one of the top stories on the MSM news programs, we will all know for certainty the double-standard hypocrisy of the Leftists."

Gets my vote for 2011 Darwin Award for the most stupid, naive, insipid, brain-dead comment in the history of all blog-nalism. Never mind that the author should have said "for certain" to be grammatically correct; the mere suggestion that, absent this new bit of evidence, there might remain any valid question about whether the Lefty Media are biased is so vapid it's insulting.

Beyond that, someone should cut off Bill Maher's coin purse and sew it into his spit hole so he suffocates gagging on his own jewels.

IMHO

I am not a Cain supporter, but THIS COMMENT IS OVER THE LINE and disgusting, but considering the source.

Did he just call his boy Obama an APE? I think he did.

Bill Maher doesn’t have the brains to connect his statement with the obvious racism it portends.

The rest of us do, though, and it’s time to use his words to drum Maher not only out of the business but out of polite society.

Since the prejudices of the far left are massively contradicted by reality, they need idiots like Maher for affirmation. He is to the far left what the Playboy centerfold is for teenage boys; that is, he enables them to pleasure themselves, intellectually-speaking.
