Obama Slammed for Bill Maher's $1 Million Donation After Series of Sexist Remarks
Townhall ^ | MARCH 9, 2012 | Katie Pavlich

Posted on 03/09/2012 6:46:26 AM PST by rhema

Three weeks ago, misogynist Bill Maher donated $1 million to Barack Obama's super PAC.

A surprise donation Thursday from comedian Bill Maher made a Super PAC supporting President Obama $1 million richer.

The promise of the big check came during a live performance of Maher's stand-up show, CrazyStupidPolitics. Maher tweeted later that the donation to Priorities USA Action had been a surprise to Yahoo!, which broadcast the show.

Now, in light of the Sandra Fluke debacle and the left's continuing attack on Rush Limbaugh for calling the 30-year-old activist, which he later apologized for (the apology was rejected), ShePAC is out with a new video slamming President Obama, Bill Maher and others on the left for their blatant hypocrisy on the issue of conservative attacking women.

Time for President Obama to give the money back and "lead by example."

Has Planned Parenthood announced that it’s pulling it’s funding from the Barack Obama show yet?

I agree with you—but it ain’t a-gonna happen. With politicians, money is a one way street. They take it in, they seldom if ever give it back.

I’d be happier if the NYT was running this story instead of TownHall.

Nah, because it's our money.

Planned Parenthood Report: $1B Group Gets 46% From Tax Money

" The new [Planned Parenthood annual] report also reveals 46 percent of the total PPFA budget comes from taxpayer dollars in the form of government funding. At the same time, just 21 percent of the income the abortion business brings in comes from private donors (it lists 528,000 active donors) while 31 percent of its revenue is derived from abortions, i.e. “non-government health services revenue."

‘Sexist’ is hardly the worst condemnation of HIS shamefully coarse name-calling!

No politician with ANY integrity ought to encourage or welcome support from people with THAT record of behavior!

The Republicans need to take a page from the Democrat playbook. Instead of having isolated people or organizations randomly calling for Obama to return the money, every prominent Republican politician should raising their voices in every venue available to point out the blatant double standard. But we all know that it's not going to happen.

Yeah, point out the double standard. But I believe everyone knows there is a double standard.

The “next step” is to state outright that because of this double standard, it’s obvious that the left doesn’t really care about [issue X], in this case “vulgar name-calling”,

and instead has an underlying agenda that they are covering and promoting through the double standard.

DIRTY MONEY

we need to keep this phrase in the dialogue
Sarah Palin hit it squarely

Obama is taking DIRTY MONEY from a DIRTY misogynist while expecting us to believe he is worried about his daughters’ delicate ears

Sasha and Malia, please ask Daddy why it is OK for Mr Maher to call Governor Palin a tw*t or a c*nt when ridiculing her political views? And ask Daddy about that middle finger nose/chin scratch while you’re at it.

Just wait till the Drive By media gets hold of this story. Why, they'll pound it over and over... maybe.

The double standard here is so embedded into our psyche that it’s not only commonplace, it’s nearly ignored. This is a very sad commentary on the diminishing morality and ethics in our society. So, next time someone says “that’s not fair,” remind that individual that what is fair to one is not fair to another, and that makes it fair.

their (quite laughable) response is that the two things are not equivalent because Maher is “just a comedian”, whereas Rush is the “de-facto head of the Republican Party”.

Doncha understand? Liberal “comedians” can call conservative women c-—s. LOL! It’s hilarious!

Just don’t call a 30-year-old sexual activist who needs 3,000 condoms a year a slut.

Geez, not this again.

Obama would be in violation of federal election law if he asked the super PAC - which is not his but is obviously supporting him - to return Maher's donation.

liberals love their double standards, hypocrisy is a winning strategy for them. They’re not going to do anything to change that.

he could still denounce bill maher. But of course he will not. Because the left loves double standards and hypocrisy they’re their favorite strategies.

Bill Maher wants to collect all the unused pet rocks and sell them in the middle east for stoning women, he said “I will make a killing, literally.”

I’m really surprised no one has beaten the snot out of Bill Maher yet.
