Bill Maher --- In general, it is the dumbest part of the county [The South]
CNN/Larry King Live | 07/22/04 | Bill Maher

Posted on 07/22/2004 7:11:49 PM PDT by conservative in nyc

When asked by a caller how we could get Southern voters to vote for a democrat again, "Comic" Bill Maher just went on the following tirade against the South, Christians and Second Amendment patriots:

You know, that's a sore point with me in the South, the way they have a stranglehold on the electorate because... excuse me... and I love playing the red states, because when I play the red states in my stand-up act, you know, I get all the people who don't usually have someone like me come to their state, so there's a great bonding. And I feel for them, because there's a lot of smart people in the South. But in general, it is the dumbest part of the country.

Excuse me. It is. And also, they're the super patriots - the one part of the country that ever actually seceeded. The one part of the country that ever actually committed treason. And they seem to lead in how we are supposed to think. Because they are more religious. They are more "patriotic". And... umm.. I think it's just a a disservice to our...

Larry King: You think in modern day America, you can still claim a whole region is dumber than another reigon?

Maher: They lead the region in dumbness, yes they do. Because they, there's too many people that just think every problem can be solved by either more guns or more Jesus. And like I said, I'm with the people who are following their compass; not with the people who are reading the entrails of the chicken. They are the people who are reading the entrails of the chicken.

that is typical Moore-on thinking ... remember, his eminence of the left, Michael Moore, himself, frequently tells his fans in Europe that the US has "the stupidest people on the planet".

How politically correct of him to say so. It's definitely a far cry from being politically incorrect.

It's also too bad for him that the South is the fastest growing region in the country, and as a result, it keeps becoming more politically relevant with each election.

I recall Rush mentioning that his show was called "politically incorrect" when it was in fact the very epitome of political correctness.

He is also a pretty slimy character.

And they seem to lead in how we are supposed to think.

Gee, that's how the California Legislature has been governing for the past 30-odd years -- as if they're "taking the lead" on behalf of the rest of the country.

Missed that stinker part, but caught his little tirade concerning GW's reaction to the news of the second tower being hit.

Or LACK of reaction, as he 'sees' it. Bill Maher is pathetic, with such a severe case of 'axe to grind', that it apparently clouds his judgement on a daily basis, now....

Everybody deserves kindness and understanding except for "those people" It's not the Southrons who keep the hostility going.

Well, at least the people in the South are not as 'brave' as the people who flew into the WTC.

Maher's officially at the top of the list:

ronstadt
raite
afleck
moore
streisand
dixie twits
etc. etc.

. . . there's too many people that just think every problem can be solved by either more guns or more Jesus.

Perhaps a combination of both?

Let's face it, Bill. If the Crusades had succeeded, 911 would never have happened.

Lets see if you can get your big intellect around that concept.

I was channel surfing and saw Maher make his idiotic comments to Larry King (who would have 'thunk' it?!?). Of course, Larry basically let him pass.

I'm not even from the south (I'm trapped up here in New York State and am surrounded by Libs/Dems/Socialists), but I was SERIOUSLY OFFENDED by Maher's 'holier than thou' comments.

Maher was also critical of the religious belief's and of the patriotism of southerners in general as well.

His comments were, well, simply stunning. I think he'd be best advised to not set foot anywhere in the South anytime soon.

See, Maher and his Hollywood types seem to forget that we're generally regionalists second and Americans first -- you insult one of us and you insult ALL of us.

This is not about the south but I was just on that other site to see if there were any polls listed. One of the posts was that if President Bush wins then Montana will become a free country! Any of you from that state?

And also, they're the super patriots - the one part of the country that ever actually seceeded. The one part of the country that ever actually committed treason.

Since Maher is so opposed to "treason," doubtless he defends the loyalty oaths of the Fifties. Right? Good thing the Hartford Convention didn't succeed in pulling New England out of the Union during the War of 1812 or he'd be talking about them this way!

They lead the region in dumbness, yes they do. Because they, there's too many people that just think every problem can be solved by either more guns or more Jesus. And like I said, I'm with the people who are following their compass; not with the people who are reading the entrails of the chicken. They are the people who are reading the entrails of the chicken.

My, those stupid white Southerners who believe in J*sus. Good thing all those Blacks Mr. Maher supports so much aren't like that! But does this mean that a Third World shaman who actually reads chicken entrails would be ridiculed by Mr. Maher? What European cultural imperialism!

Maher is a dumbass.

When Mrs Felis moved to TX, she was amazed at how bright Texans are...30 years of lies on yankee TV had her fooled.

When her mother met some of my AL relatives, she was equally amazed. Yup, they walk, chew gum, and can keep up with y'all just fine in conversation.

I wonder if Maher can explain how it is smarter and more intellectual to spend long weekends at the Playboy mansion doing drugs and hookers, his admitted favorite pastime.

If that's Yankee smarts at work, I'll take the more guns and more Jesus, thank you.

I'd love to see Bill Maher dropped in the middle of the Georgia mountains with such intellectuals as Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Moore and Janeane Garafolo. Then he can say who is dumb.

"But in general, it is the dumbest part of the country. "

Moron.

I guess he never was to New Joisey or Brooklyn, or maybe that's where he came from.

And there was nothing treasonous about secession, and there still isn't. Secession isn't mentioned in the Constituion. Maybe Mayer can find it in the same place they put something on abortion as a "right".

Mayer is a moron. Only an even bigger idiot like Larry King could let him get him get away with such drivel.

The South helped defeat the Brits all by themselves - at King's Mountain, Cowpens, and in half a hundred little battles, because Southerners are fighters. They like guns and know how to use them to defend themselves and their families. They don't need Mommy Government to do it for them. They didn't need Washington (another Southerner) to come and rescue them with an army.

And, as a matter of fact, moron Mayer, Southerners have contributed far beyond their actual population numbers in every major battle this country has fought in. Hero Sgt. Alvin York was a Southerner - remember him?

So take that and stuff up your liberal butt idiot Mayer.

And I am a history buff who was born in New Joisey, so I know of what I speak. I ahd the sense and luck to leave there.
