Bill Maher should be fired.
It's not acceptable that in this country in 2011 a mother of five children should be called such a disgusting name on television.
When Imus only chuckled at someone else's comment of "nappy-headed ho's" he was immediately dismissed. Why? Because blacks threatened to boycott CBS. And guess what? Boycotts work.
Where is the boycott of Time-Warner after Maher's insane remarks?
Anyone with a pencil or a computer should contact Time Warner and tell them we're going to boycott all Time Warner television shows, films and products until Maher is ousted for his foul comment last week.
As of today, Sarah Palin looks like a very viable Presidential candidate for 2012. Nobody fries the circuits of the left like she does, so she must be doing something right. William Buckley said he'd trust the first 50 names in the phone book over the entire Harvard faculty. Any one of those names could run the country better than the guy currently in the White House.
Boycott Time-Warner until Maher is sent packing.

Here's Maher and his putrid rant...
He not only needs to be fired from HBO, but from the human race. Maher embodies ALL that is despicable with the left in this county.
Grab a pencil ping.
Nah. Someone had to take the “I’m from crazy-town” label from Kieth Olberman.
He doubled down and called her a c**t in Dallas:
Bill Maher Calls Sarah Palin a “****” a Week After Calling Palin a “Dumb ****”
We all know he isn’t going to be fired. He’s desperate for attention and people need to stop giving it to him.
Why does some one not just find him and beat the hell out of him? That always prevented/reminded people of civil discourse in earlier days.
Why? You hear that kind of garbage all the time on that channel, that’s why it’s in the premium channel tier. You actually have to shell out extra to watch that crap.
Boycotts can work, but the people who support Sarah Palin don’t watch that show anyway.
Really? Even for a despicable low life like him, it is hard to imagine his pea-sized brain wouldn’t set off some kind of vocabulary limiting alarm with a word like that.
But then, reptilian hindbrains don’t have too many higher functions.
When leftists THREATEN to boycott, TSHTF. When Conservatives threaten to boycott, the offending party laughs. Why the difference?/s;)
He’s one reason why I don’t subscribe to HBO. I haven’t subscribed to HBO since 1991 and even then they only showed the same 6 movies over and over again.
I did that the first day..instead of just whining on blogs about it.
OMG. Maher needs to be doubled-down, smacked right in that smug mouth of his.
Imagine someone from Fox News calling ANY woman a “dumb twat”. They’d be gone before you could say Jack Robinson.
They may not watch him but they support HBO by subscribing to it.
Consider the source.
He’s just another pretentious liberal who walks the earth thinking he’s the most brilliant being on the face of the earth. Of course, everyone who doesn’t agree with him is a knuckle-dragging, idiotic, doltish, moronic,
gun-loving, bible-thumping lame-brain.
He and his ilk are sickening and one hopes they reap what they’ve sown in spades.
Bill Who? Someone sold a horse?
It would be very humorous!
Don’t you understand, Dr? The left can do these things, the right can’t. Besides ... she’s white. Double besides ... she’s Sarah Palin. Total free pass on that topic.
Totally agree with your sentiments though.
First time I’ve ever agreed with you.
Good for you. Me, too.
In this day and age when advertising dollars are so dear, and dwindling audiences have a lot of choices, CEOs pay attention to canceled subscriptions and movie boycotts.
You know what should really happen? Palin’s husband should make a private, personal call to Maher, man-to-man, and tell him to cease and desist immediately. Or, better yet, contact Maher in person. He should tell Maher, in a calm, clear manner that he does not appreciate this vile language being said about his wife and demand a public apology.
This is the least any reasonable man should do to defend his wife.
Wussies like Maher almost always back down.
I totally agree with you. You’re absolutely right about how Imus got in so much trouble, and Maher is getting away with it.
Paddy Drunk a$$ed agitator with no real purpose beyond money and being childish with a potty mouth when 50 years old.
I’m betting he has a squad of big bodyguards who go with him everywhere. If I was calling Gov. Sarah Palin names half that nasty, I know I would.
If he gets fired or silenced, we're no better than the liberals we complain about for getting ABC to edit their "Road to 9/11" project...but it's different when WE do it.
Ignore him. The only time his boring show gets any publicity is when he calls conservatives names, and we respond. Let him call names--how are they hurting? All they're doing is helping...him, and his boring show, which will fade if his "Look at me!" tactics stop getting the attention he wants and needs.
Agreed, I love a good boycott, the junk is probably from China anyway.
Todd should do us all a favor and crack Maher’s f-cking jaw into pieces.
Four of them were The River. The calf is being born in the barn, the tractor has tipped over on Sissy Spacek, the creek is rising and I JUST DON'T CARE ANYMORE!!!!
You’re right and your post is excellent. He should be banned from appearing on Fox News for sure, but we’ll see. Greta is talking about him now.
***Hes one reason why I dont subscribe to HBO. I havent subscribed to HBO since 1991 and even then they only showed the same 6 movies over and over again.***
Are they STILL doing that?
I dumped them more years ago than I can remember for the same reason. Oh, and I signed up with them in the first place because they promised college courses. Eventually, they finally had one: It was about fourth grade grammar, and the teacher was black and the student was an imbecilic white male.
Yeah, with Kirsten Powers, who already told everyone what she thought of this story on Fox News Watch. She merely said it was much ado about nothing and that Maher is a comedian and what he has to say shouldn’t be taken seriously. Her words, not mine.
I don’t know and I frankly since I am not paying for that trash, I don’t care.
What, and fire the liberal and mainstream’s poster child?
Bill Maher should be put in a room for 5 minutes with Todd Palin - problem solved.
FIOS now has TV.
I shall look into ditching Time Warner based on this.
This clown is just another brand of Charlie Sheen. Quit giving him attention, website hits, and TV ratings and he’ll go away. Call the cable company and tell them to keep their skiffy HBO, your life would be richer if you went outside and counted the tulips.
I’m utterly baffled that anybody could stand to watch ten consecutive seconds of Bill Maher. I’ve tried. His “humor” is sour sarcasm that’s about as funny as nails on a chalk board.
I do not understand how Hollywood picks the comedians that “make it”. Most of them are the most unfunny people on the planet. Billy Crystal, Gilbert Gottfried, Sinbad, Whoopie Goldberg, Roseanne Barr, Kathy Griffin, do I need to go on? The really funny ones get some play on Last Comic Standing and then disappear back into obscurity. Bill Maher is not only extremely not-funny, he’s downright annoying and outrageously arrogant. He gets an HBO special, a star on the Walk of Fame, and the red carpet wherever he goes. I’ll never understand it.
I haven’t used a pencil since elementary school in the 1980s. Are pencils still made? :-)
Nothin but sticks and stones.
Yep like I said on the other thread, someone needs to take this guy out in the back alley and pulverize his face, particularly around the oral orifice.
Find a pen. 8~)
Boycott Maher, HBO and Time Warner all you want, but there is a huge difference.
Imus said what he did on a show carried by FCC-licensed over-the-air broadcast channels. Yes, it was simulcast by MSNBC but the real fear came from the possible fines levied by the FCC.
Maher’s remarks were made not only on a cable channel but one you have to specifically subscribe to and one who’s forte is presenting material too explicit to be shown on over-the-air television or spoken on over-the-air radio.
In other words, Maher was giving his audience exactly what they pay money for - disgusting as that may be for the rest of us.
Letterman made a crude joke about Palin’s kids and had to walk it back because his show is carried on FCC-licensed stations. Maher goes to HBO precisely because they are unregulated.
Be outraged all you want but all you are telling the suits at HBO or Time Warner with your protest letters is that Maher did what they are paying him to do - say controversial things that will attract more viewers.
And since HBO has no advertisers, you won’t get much sympathy boycotting that way either.
And, for the record, Time Warner Cable is now a separate company from Time Warner so complaining to them won’t go far either.
I’m not condoning or endorsing what he has said or will say. I think he’s a disgusting little twerp and if Al Qaeda gunned him down in the middle of one of his shows, I’d say they were doing America a favor. But your efforts to get him censored or fired aren’t going to work. They’ll simply going to ask why you were watching to begin with.
They find a liberal and "then they take away reason and accountability." 8~)
Good for you. Tell them that.
Bill Maher needs to be reminded that it takes one to know one.
Maher as one of Todd's sled dogs.
That works, too.
