Skip to comments.Bill Maher’s (Shades of Al Qaeda) “New Rules” Insult to Our Troops in Iraq
Posted on 08/26/2007 3:50:02 PM PDT by DoughtyOne
For those of you who thought you knew how low Bill Maher would go to get a laugh, this one may surprise you. For most of you though, it probably wont.
As part of Bills program Real Time With Bill Maher, he has a New Rules segment. During this segment Maher lampoons various public figures and subjects in the news. While viewing a few minutes of Mahers program today, I viewed the following presentation.
Cut to program (Maher has just roasted Victoria Becham for not smiling in public )
New Rule, journalists in Iraq must stop celebrating miracle babies rescued by American Soldiers. Like when U.S. Troops found little Fatima lying in a pile of rubble, and instead of bashing her head in with a rock, they brought her to a hospital. (Using high pitched mocking voice ) Ooo, what a miracle. (Raising fist into the air ) USA, number one! Thanks CBS for turning Iraq into a feel good story for the Baby Jessica fell down a well crowd. And no offense Fatima, but the real miracle in Iraq will be if you ever manage to get out.
This segment aired on Sunday the 26th of Augusts from 2:00pm to 3:00pm PDST.
I included the Shades of Al Qaeda phrase in the title of this thread, because Al Qaeda wants people around the world to think the worst of our troops, and Bill Maher has proven himself willing to advance that effort.
From my perspective Maher implies it was a miracle U.S. Troops didnt bash the babys head in rather than take her to the hospital. The headline of the CBS article made it very clear that the troops gave their heart to her instead. And at no time does Maher address who likely killed the babys mother and uncle. (Terrorists perhaps?)
While Maher has proven himself capable of putting out cutting edge humor that was Not Politically Correct, which drew me in as a viewer years ago, he has devolved into an unfortunate Bush hating, troop despising, and Iraqi freedom denying punk.

Maher is a commie POS who needs his ass kicked for insulting US servicemen. Nothing new there.
Here’s that link again.
maher’s empty black heart only finds delight in digusting others. i am not surprised by his comment, though i don’t think this was him at his worst.
He is an overt and aggressive black propagandist for our enemy.
He is a betrayer.
Especially when he says, “Oooo, what a miracle!” I’d love for this to blow up in his face. Some military families should band together and take HBO on over it.
I have to go out. BB later...
Has anyone told Bill Maher that he’s about as funny as debriding time at the burn ward?
SO....he’s still a small minded, anally cerebrally retentive, intolorant, prejudiced puke, eh?
That’s not news; ALL Lefties are small minded, anally cerebrally retentive, intolorant, prejudiced pukes.
You con't really believe HBO really cares, do you?
From what I can tell from their programming, so long as the cable fees keep rolling in they and the other cable companies will keep on broadcasting and glorifying whatever they darn well want to broadcast and glorify.
Revenue streams talk. And, sad to admit, I'm not rushing out to cancel my subscription anytime soon. But, I might . . .
I'm old enough to rememebr clearly when this happened before. Vietnam rhetoric redux.
What’s old Bill doin’ these days? I didn’t know he was still employed.
Let Bill M. speak! He’s performing a free service for the Republican party that they could not possible afford to pay for.
ooos, could not possibly afford to pay for
If anyone wants to know what hate and rage do to the soul, just look at Bill Maher.
Maybe Bill Maher is under the impression that John F. Kerry is still in the military.
After this (and combining it with his other statements)is there anybody who does not questions BM's patriotism?
LOL appropriate initials eh?
This guy is no longer worthy of breathing the same air as the rest of us. He is long overdue for a dirt nap.
When a traitor asks “Are you questioning my patriotism?” our answer should be “ No, I am not questioning your patriotism, I am saying you have absolutely none you SOB Traitor”.
Your average terrorist is a better American than Bill Maher.
This “man”? He has bodyguards? He should.
Alligator mouth, canary a**
Keep on subscribing to HBO and this chump will keep on spewing this garbage.
My 9th grade daughter could beat the snot out of him.
Moon bat a-hole. I watched his show once, never had to again. The guy is stupid or ignorant...either way that is no way to go through life....
Bill Maher is way past his shelf date. The only time he makes the news now is when he pulls an “Olbermann” and shoots off some crazy anti-U.S., anti-war, anti-Bush, anti-soldier (etc.) crap.
His shtick has grown way tiresome, and that’s way he needs to create this kind of PR for himself. Pathetic.
Maher needs a bus ticket to Key West, an inner tube from a trruck tire, a compass and a kick in the ass in the direction of Cuba. Dumb bastard.
why so exotic? His humors much more mundane, like scrubbing under the rim of the toilet
No, Bill Maher needs a bus ticket Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina for a nice eleven week stint with the Recruit Training Regiment. It might give this traitorous SOB some insight as to what it means to be an American with the freedoms we enjoy... in particular, the Freedom of Speech and the responsibility that goes along with that freedom. What a jerk!
“Maher is a commie POS who needs his ass kicked for insulting US servicemen”.
If you see a line forming for that particular action, ping me so I can get there ASAP.
“And no offense Fatima, but the real miracle in Iraq will be if you ever manage to get out.
There have been many inquiries into her adoption, but Iraqi law does not allow adoption outside of the country. Hey Bill, it is American service men and women who want to adopt her.
Stephen Hayes more than held his own with Tim Robbins, and Tim wasn't too pleased to have his "facts" challenged by a man that wrote a book on VP Cheney. Michel Martin also surprised me a great deal. She must have a child that is now a teenager, or she's been mugged lately (I hope not, though). Whatever it is, she did not sound like a liberal on that show.
There were very few laughs following the "joke" about Baby Fatima.
All in all, an interesting hour of television. It appears to me that Bill better change his shtick, because he's not going to have Dubya to kick around much longer.
I'm not a political scientist, but the audience reaction last night was indicative of the national mood. The average American can see some progress being made with the surge, and they're willing to give it at least six more months. Jokes made at the expense of our soldiers will not fare well, because the upper echelons of the chain of command screwed up in Iraq, not our soldiers.
Bill Maher's shelf life will be expired by January 2009. He's rode the vitriolic hatred of Dubya (from the left) for the past six years. He's gone to that well so many times, he'll have nothing left to shout about when Dubya goes back to Crawford.
That’s another twisted, tri-sexual, S&M, biting POS. He doesn’t know who the hell he is. Don’t worry, i’ll run into him soon enough.
if this man is such a douchebag, why in heavens name do you watch?
Do yourself a favor, dont watch his shows, dont write about what he says and dont worry yourself about him. Ignore this ass and he will go away, just like a child having a tantrum. Keep writing about him, and he will just keep going on and on....
I couldn’t agree with you more. I feel dirty when I hear him speak. In fact, I feel dirty when I see a picture of him. He’s vile.
Perhaps he’s projecting.
I do not watch him, and I never watched him.
I hesitated to post that, since bill o’reilly would probably cry “hate speech”, but maher is a real creep.
Joe, as former ARMY, this punk aint good enough to clean a Marines boots.
When I look at what HBO, Showtime and Cinamax put out, I sometimes think I should cut the cable. The problem is, there isn’t much out there without cable.
I think HBO cares a lot more what people think than we give them credit for. Not many corporations want to come off looking like they dispise members of the military. It’s just not a good business practice.
As for Maher, his schtick is growing old. HBO just might can his ass if a group of people made enough noise.
Actually Bill is an idiot. I’m not sure you can charge someone as a traitor, who hasn’t the tools to understand what that means. He is oblivious...
Well, I do believe there is some truth in that. Unfortunately there are so many idiots out there these days, and he comes off as a hero to many of them.
I hear ya. Someone mentioned him on the forum so I decided to check him out for the first time in years. This was the result.
To Bull Mahnuer the only Good American Soldier is a Dead American Soldier
Pray for W and Our Troops
You are right. The laughs were few and far between, during the part I watched. Tim Robbins didn’t go unchallenged did he. That was interesting. The male person you mentioned had his facts handy and beat him over the head with them.
As you stated, the NPR woman seemed to be a thinker. She wasn’t going to be led down any path she didn’t want to be, and she actually made some intelligent observations. She did not back Maher much, and actually challenged his assumpitons several times, with what I thought were some fairly reasoned comments, again for someone from NPR.
Did you catch her offense at Maher’s claim that he used racial flattery to get laid after the show. She took him on over that and wouldn’t let go, reverting to it several times later in the show.
