Bill Maher Disappointed Obama Isn’t A ‘Real Black President’ With A Gun In His Pants
Mediaite ^ | May 29, 2010 | Frances Martel

Posted on 05/30/2010 11:12:10 AM PDT by Kaslin

If you thought Glenn Beck putting on an evil witch voice to imitate Malia Obama was offensive, this one is going to blow your socks off. Last night, Bill Maher lamented President Barack Obama’s “professorial” personality, noting with a hint of betrayal in his voice that he was expecting a “real black president”– you know, the kind that “lifts up his shirt so they can see the gun in his pants.”

No, that really is the entire joke, which you can watch below. After making a quip about former president George W. Bush making an unfortunate reappropriation of his famous Hurricane Katrina “heck of a job, Brownie” comment, Maher laments that Obama doesn’t bring a gun to BP meetings and “shoots somebody in the foot,” because that is what a “real black president” would do. He does not attribute this image of black people to racist Obama opponents, or do anything to clarify that this is not the way he believes black people should behave.

It seems almost unnecessary to make a list of every instance where Maher threw the “racist” tag on someone or a group of people that disgust him, but for the record he has attacked the Tea Partiers– actually, anyone that questions raising taxes– “anti-immigrant hoopies,” “older white people“… and it goes on. This is someone whose political identity is supposedly deeply rooted in a hatred of racism, someone who makes his paycheck self-righteously brandishing his tolerance, who just admitted on television that you can’t be a “real” black person without behaving like Tupac Shakur.

And that really is the sticking point here that makes this go from funny/offensive to just plain offensive. Some people have made a career of being “racist” comedians– and there’s no doubt that many black comedians use stereotypes for humor– but Maher seems to consider himself a serious political commentator, too. He appears on CNN to talk tell Wolf Blitzer how to fix the world. You can’t blur the line between satirist and commentator to that extent and expect people to let you off the hook for using minstrel show humor (which is really the only way to characterize a “haha, black people like to shoot people” joke)

Has the MSM reported on this? Imagine if Rush or Beck had said it, there would be a firestorm from hell.

Bill Maher is a racist. Go to the smokinggun.com and read the reports from his ex-girlfriend many years ago who was black, he called her every racist term in the book. That is how progressives work, they talk about how everyone else is racist but they are the biggest racists of all

Any race can trash whites with impunity. I'm glad to see some racism being given back. Too bad it's the left with the nads.

Maher reveals why liberals pretend to love blacks. They’re afraid of them. Much like the way liberals are afraid of scummy little dictators like Iran, Venezuala, and N Korea, so they appease them.

Actually no, I didn't think that was offensive, nor was it racist.

The more this mental midget sees his name in print, the more he will continue with the verbal diarrhea. He doesn’t rate any coverage or publicity.

Maher thinks he can say what he wants about black because he dates black trannies, however,,,,I find him offensive on every level.

So Maher thinks the typical black man carries a gun and is prone to resolving conflicts with violence. No racial stereotyping here.

Look at that picture and tell me how Obama gets away with claiming to be a “black” man. He must have been spending an hour a day under a sun lamp to maintain the facade until recently. In that picture he looks almost as light skinned as I do, especially his right hand.

Not to mention, American Social Decay and Meltdown at its Finest. Millions watch this guy...and believe him. There is something wrong with the country. It is decaying from the inside out, like a colony of maggots have gotten into the sacks in the rice storehouse.

Bill Maher pushes and pushes, and will do a Half Gaynor over the edge long before he realizes that there is an edge. Then he will join Imus in talk show host Palookaville, where he belongs.

Well, that explains a lot. Gays are resentful of black gangbangers and thugs because they tend to get attacked by them.

Bill Maher is a HATE monger. He is NOT simply the balance to Ann Coulter. He advocates violence against Christians, Republicans and Conservatives. He is the quintessential activist gay... non apologetic for his most serious bombs thrown. Maher's one great skill that is unsurpassed is his sneer. John Stewart's sneer doesn't hold a candle to Maher's sneer. And MANY Americans love them both and give credence to their vitriol.... proof that brain washing is easy if you control the information... NO MATTER THE EDUCATION LEVEL OF THE PEOPLE.

You need to google some of the “women” he has been linked with. If they ain’t men.... then I ain’t a woman and I AM a woman.
