BILL MAHER NEEDS TO BE FIRED
Vanity | March 28, 2011 | me

Posted on 03/28/2011 7:19:51 PM PDT by Dr. Eckleburg

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.

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.

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.

IMHO

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
