Skip to comments.Bill Maher Disappointed Obama Isn’t A ‘Real Black President’ With A Gun In His Pants

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)
What a racist
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
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.
I thought liberals believe in gun control since they are too scaaaweeee
Maher is a typical lying hypocrite, racist Rat
I thought that was a gun in his pants. At least, a small snub nosed derringer.
NO they have not...
I have sent the link to Jake Tapper - Mark Knoller - Chuck Todd and many others
...(not thinking they would actually react - just so I know they cannot deny knowing)
Actually no, I didn't think that was offensive, nor was it racist.
No. Liberals don't believe in anything.
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.
A memorable day in the House of Representin’.
Wow. That’s a...special...kind of stupid.
Isn't he a lame duck?
Yeah, I think Michelle carries the “gun” in that family (so to speak).
