Skip to comments.Maher: Palin Would Kill Indians From a Helicopter
Posted on 08/03/2009 2:45:13 PM PDT by RobinMasters
Days before the 2008 election, HBO host Bill Maher expressed his hatred for Sarah Palin: "If there is such a thing as karma, let's hope that Sarah Palin comes back as a wolf being shot from a plane." Maher returned to the wolf-shooting metaphors on Friday night's Real Time as he discussed her farewell address in Alaska except this time Maher suggested Palin would execute Cherokee Indians. Right-leaning humorist Joe Queenan set off the "joking."
QUEENAN: Are you blaming Sarah Palin for the extermination of the Cherokee tribe?
MAHER: I certainly am.
MAHER: Not that she did it, but if she was around then, she would have from a helicopter, like she did the wolves.
Notice how the logic collapses: Palin in a helicopter in the 1800s? That was not the only moment when the Palin mockery seemed a little mangled on the Maher show. This is how the bashing began:

I think it’s time to dig up some dirt on this little p.o.s. What a looney toon.
Frankly, this jackass is best left ignored!
I can’t believe Ann Coulter ever dated him.
What is supposed to be sticking out from his chest? Looks like a snake? Weird.
Helicopters in the 1800's?
Lay off the drugs Maher... or better just whack yourself.
She didn’t. Their just friends. Disgusting enough.
I am surprised that Maher and NRO seem unaware that the term “apologetics” applies beyond the theological sphere of Christianity. Apologia is rhetoric of self defense. Apologetics is a technical extension of the category understood since Aristotle.
Its Palin who has a clue and her various critics as usual do not.
I read they did.
After some of the things Bill Maher has said and done, he’d better be concerned about his own karma.
Look how childish the left has made so many people.
No one should give a good damn about shooting a wolf in Alaska. Period.
That it is predation control to protect livestock is icing on the cake. Turning shooting a wolf into an immoral act is just kooky.
Lots of Cherokees still around, we don’t need that idiot Maher to save us!
Maher is his own worst enemy. Some of his rants make him look like an absolute imbecile. I’m content to watch him destroy himself, and he will take his audience with him, when folks realize what a fool you have to be to laugh at some of this stuff.
It was Andrew Jackson — the father of the Democratic Party — who ethnically cleansed, not exterminated, the Cherokee from Tennessee and Alabama.
Bill Maher is a stain on a piece of used toilet paper.
Maher’s idea of a joke was to mock the Crocodile Hunter’s tragic death while the family was in mourning.
Yeah he’s a real nice guy compared to those who allow predatory wolf control. Not.
not to mention he just equated indians with wolves(dogs). how F’ed up is that??
Stop giving this waste of skin any bandwidth.
Drunk, drugged up, wigged out and a poofter. Bad B-movie actor, asshole unfunny comic, and a seriously depleted intellect...I can’t for the live of me figure out why HBO has given him a show. I have seriously thought about reworking my premium satellite lineup and will when my commitment period is over.
An acquanintance of mine who so upset about reading about shooting wolves in Alaska that she sent an e-mail around to the rest of us in our writing group. She was saddened and appalled.....meanwhile a few years ago she revealed to us that she had had an abortion...apparently she cares more about the wolves in Alaska than her own flesh and blood.
Bill Maher cares more about the wolves then the victims of 9/11, he called the terrorists who killed them “brave” this guy is a NUT. He is showing everyone what liberals really are, if people haven’t figured it out already, these leftists are beyond sick. They should lump them all together and stick them in a padded room
You can dig up the dirt but Maher will gleefully wallow in it.
A disgusting and pathetic specimen.
Better a dog than to be Bill Maher!
Bill Maher looks like what Cheryl Crow leaves on her one square of toilet paper after wiping vigorously.
I guess HBO has given him a show for the same reason they are running:
1 Hung, about a male gigolo with a big you know
2 Teddy - A tribute to Teddy Kennedy
3 True Blood (although I love the show) which regularly dumps on religion as bigotry
I’m sure I’m missing many other examples.
Grow up, Maher. You give snot-nosed, immature little brats a bad name.
We can only hope something sharp goes through his black heart and he dies a painful death.
I confess, I like TB also, but the rest of HBO’s schedule sucks ass. I mostly watch Starz or the others....
Palin is married to a Native Alaskan.
Now is the time to start calling Maher a racist for his attack on Native people. Start a recall petition. Stand in his audience and question his intelligence. File a charge with some civil rights commission. Call what he said a “hate crime.”
The time has long passed to be nice to these people. Personalize him; polarize him; and do the same thing to him that he wants to do to Sarah Palin. He’s got more money than Sarah, so he should be able to put up with it.
*****really really annoyed at this crap*******
Maher would insult Sarah Palin if she cured a million people of cancer.
Got that one topped, friend’s sister in Hollywood land wants to protect the trees because the Native Americans said trees contain a “noble spirit”.
Meanwhile, she is an angry aggressive supporter of aborting humans.
Wolves/Trees vs. Humans.
Indians, Bill? No. Probably not. Todd’s actually part Inuit. Tell me you knew.
Now, bloggers, on the other hand...
She needs to watch those poor wolves running down a baby caribou
In fact, maybe Bill Maher will be reincarnated as a baby caribou
Which party was it that did drive the Cherokees from their homes? Anyone?
Actually, he saved me some money. I cancelled hbo because of that stinking POS.
You don’t have to dig very far.....
I think we ought to give him the chance to be a “hero.”
This is not good! Some of my raging lunatic liberal relatives/friends get their news from Bill Maher.
He is such a dumb*ss! I agree, we need to ignore him.
He obviously doesn't understand wildlife and living off the land unless you consider the Playboy Mansion 'wildlife'.
“Which party was it that did drive the Cherokees from their homes? Anyone?”
Hmmm, Let’s see - The Trail of Tears occurred in 1838/1839. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 . . . It couldn’t have been the Republicans.
Let’s just ignore him. Everyone else is. Having his name mentioned here at FR is probably his biggest publicity.
Custer would have shot Indians from a helicopter if one would have been available.
Exactly. Indian Removal was the policy promoted by Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Democrats. Started in the late twenties with the rise of Jackson and culminated in the Trail of Tears in the late thirties.
