Skip to comments.Maher: Obama ‘the first black president of the racist states of America’
Posted on 04/28/2012 9:45:36 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
On his Friday program, HBOs Real Time host Bill Maher called President Barack Obama the first black president of the racist states of America, while criticizing a line regularly used by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney while on the campaign trail: If people think theres something wrong with being successful in America, then theyd better vote for the other guy.
Romneys statement, according to Maher, crosses a line.
Youve got to say this about Mitt, hes a master politician, Maher said. I just heard him say this the other day he said this: If people think that there is something wrong with being successful, vote for the other guy. First of all, who thinks there is something wrong with being successful?
Maher called Romneys statement a straw man argument, but suggested Obama was successful too since he overcame racism to become the first black president of what he called the racist states of America.

"Government of Eric Holder's people, by Eric Holder's people, and for Eric Holder's people."
Maher is a pus-filled abcess.
There’s their campaign strategy, in one sentence.
Thanks Bill, for showing your hand.
[W]ho thinks there is something wrong with being successful?Why, liberals do: They think that people are only successful if they exploit the labor of other people, or the resources of 3rd world nations, or the environment, or because they stole stuff from Africa. It’s not a strawman argument at all.
You denigrate puss filled abcesses everywhere
He’s right! Blacks are the most racist people in America!
Someone once tried to run over Maher in their car but the tires refused to get any of that on them.
“First of all, who thinks there is something wrong with being successful?
Lefties, at least for some kinds of success. Maher has a sliver of a point, in that Romney misappropriates the term “success” by limiting it to business success. There are other ways to be successful. But this criticism is akin to going after Romney for ending his sentences in prepositions, or something. People know what he’s talking about; it is “the economy, stupid,” and that is the filter through which their ears hear everything. They know that a big part of Obama’s campaign is about punishing rich people, and Romney is setting himself up as the alternative to that.
“Obama was successful too since he overcame racism to become the first black president”
By the way, you don’t have to go searching for some non-business manner in which Obama’s been successful. He is successful in the exact same manner as Romney. Not to the same extent, but Obama is a millionaire author. Granted, people buy his book largely on the strength of his fame as a politician. But still, he’s made loads. Why do people pretend like Obama isn’t rich?

"One ni**er, two ni**ers, three ni**ers Three ni**ers! That is what the little American of European descent shouted as my father and his two friends emerged from a broken down blue Rambler. Three grown men from central Mississippi called the N word by a young boy in central Wisconsin in the early 1960s.
Cant get more racist than that, right?
I barely remember my fathers "toe-up" hoopty (I do recall how proud he was when he upgraded to a new Buick), but I will never forgot the ugly story my father told me when I was a child about how a fishing trip in beautiful, scenic Wisconsin, almost got him and his friends in serious trouble.
One ni**er, two ni**ers, three ni**ers Three ni**ers! That sounds kind of old-school redneck, doesnt it? Like the first lines of a Ku Klux Klan nursery rhyme
My father and all of his Mississippi friends loved to fish. They formed a whole community around fishing. My childhood memories are filled with my father and his Mississippi friends partying, hanging out, playing cards and fishing always fishing. And if any of them caught a mother load, they shared the load with each other. It was that way with everything. Greens, turnips, onions whatever they grew, they shared. Whatever they bought, they split. There was a lot of Mississippi in Milwaukee in the 1950s and 60s. They came north for work and brought the culture of the South with them.
In the pre- I have a Dream era, however, racism wasnt a north or south thing. It was an American thing and it wasnt covert. Racism was overt, obvious and omnipresent. Racist sentiments were natural; almost expected but NEVER welcomed. My father initially had to flee his hometown in Mississippi when he refused to cower at the use of that word. All three of these men who were called ni**er by that boy were veterans. Theyd seen action in the Korean theatre. Im told war has a way of changing a man. Well, it changed my father. After returning from duty in Korea, some teenager in Louisville, Mississippi, almost lost his life for mistaking my father for a ni**er.
But this was a child, and my father was now older, wiser, and married with children... (Me!)
One ni**er, two ni**ers, three ni**ers Three ni**ers!
My father was the first one to emerge from the car. It was the third passenger to emerge who actually engaged went after the kid. My father and passenger #2 stopped him, restrained him actually, and said the words that have impacted my life. Its not his fault. Hes a child. He had to LEARN it somewhere! (racism: a learned behavior, a culture, not an institution, not a government program, but a thought planted in the heart!) Well, then lets go kick his fathers ass! The three men laughed.
Of course that didnt happen. My father and his friends went fishing and the boy went home, never really understanding why the third ni**er was so angry.
That was 50 years ago. So much has changed
My father and his friends continued to go fishing until the day they didnt. Almost all of them have passed on now. My father, one of the last, is now in the last stages of Alzheimers. He shares his meals with many men, who decades past, probably planted those very seeds in the hearts of their sons. The irony slaps me on each visit.
I never taught my sons how to fish but I have shared the stories the community of sharing, caring, and how out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. I wish I could go fishing with my dad and his friends one more time. I miss their stories.
If I had a son.....he'd think like James T.
How exactly does a racist country elect one that is of the very race they supposedly are biased against...
That seems to defy the very statement itself doesn’t it...
Liberals, bending reality daily...
I can say thy Colbert has made me laugh on many occasions. Jon Stewart is a jerk, but his writers have put together a few funny jokes once or twice. Bill Maher is the lowest of the low, and has never been funny.
Mahr is the pus in the carbuncle on the ass of America
I suppose abcesses serve a purpose, unlike Maher.
0bama is a racist so what’s the problem?
“they shared the load with each other. It was that way with everything. Greens, turnips, onions whatever they grew, they shared. Whatever they bought, they split.”
Can you say, “Planting socialism into the minds of the readers”?
Note that this story is about life in Wisconsin.
Note also that Wisconsin has been a Progressive/Democrat/Union stronghold for the past century, only recently starting to come to their senses.
The state capital of Wisconsin is referred on on this forum as “Madistan”.
This story describes the thought processes/behavior of Progressives and Democrats.
Except that their sharing was free and voluntary; not enforced at gunpoint.
