Maher: Southerners Should Celebrate Heritage In One Day Called "St. Cracker's Day"
RCP ^ | 3-15-12 | RCP

Posted on 03/18/2012 9:43:11 AM PDT by tcrlaf

Bill Maher: "If Irish Americans can manage to celebrate their heritage in just one day then Southerners should be able to do also.

That's right, instead of spending the whole year flying the Confederate flag and saying 'the South will rise again,' you get just one day.

We'll call it 'St. Cracker's Day.'"

It's O.K. for Maher to be a racist, and a bigot, since he's a Democrat, right?

And should we have a Saint Kykes Day in place of Chanukah(sp). No, of course not. If we were to do that we would be bigots, too.

Isn”t he headlining a big Odumbo fundraiser in Alabama. Maybe they can declare it O’Cracker day in his honor and our Bama TEA Party brethren can form a welcoming commitee.

we’ll have an official holiday where everyone down here gets a day off and call it Confederate day.

Now lets see if he’s laughing then.

And for his day and others like him , it should be called elitist snobby day.

The only way -- the only way -- he can keep his job is to please the media establishment. Period. This is how he does that.

He and Ann Coulter were involved at some point. She must’ve been too dominant for his fragile ego, but he certainly appears to be drawn to “other.”

It's such a pity when people carry childhood baggage into adulthood like this. Maher resents patriarchal figures because he hates his father, and rejects women like his mother because she rejected him.

Such an alienated basket case. He's going to stroke out or drop from a heart attack one of these days, all that festering old resentment boiling inside him.

Just forgive them, Bill, it's the Christian thing to do.

I agree that most of what Maher says is repulsive and disgusting. The man has a reasonably quick wit, but he isn’t funny and relies on these sorts of statements to piss people off and remain relevant. If conservatives would simply ignore him, the guy would be off the air in a year. Maher is a one trick pony. All he has at this point is insulting traditional people and Christians to keep his ratings up. I know it is not likely to happen, but if we all just collectively yawned at what he says and stopped reacting to it Bill Maher would be forgotten very quickly.

Bill Maher Hit With Palimony SuitEx accuses HBO star of physical abuse, “degrading racial comments”

NOVEMBER 11—Comedian Bill Maher was slapped yesterday with a $9 million palimony suit by an ex-girlfriend who alleges that the HBO star subjected her to physical and verbal abuse, including “insulting, humiliating and degrading racial comments.” In the below Los Angeles Superior Court complaint, Nancy Johnson, a centerfold model and former flight attendant also known as Coco Johnsen, alleges that Maher, 48, reneged on promises to pay her expenses and purchase a Beverly Hills home. Johnson, who says she dated Maher for 17 months before splitting from him in May, also contends that the performer promised to marry her and have children. Johnson, pictured at right, does not detail the degrading racial comments allegedly made by Maher, and recounts only one episode of supposed physical abuse by the host of HBO’s “Real Time.” She charges that Maher pulled her arm and shook her at one party, causing “injuries to her back and neck,” and later that evening warned he'd hit her on the head with a hammer if she was unfaithful. (10 pages)

We can look at Maher from several perspectives, but it all comes down to this - he's a comedian.

He's not a journalist, he's not a commentator, and he's not really all that intelligent. He wasn't doing much until he landed the HBO gig so he could cuss at will at degrade women, actually.

Bad attitude tempered with a bit of smartass is his "stock in trade". Add that gigantic honker he's got and he gets laughs from the middle-aged adolescents in our land.

So, I suggest that we here in the South quickly institute a "St. Crackers Day", and invite Maher to be the keynote speaker at the induction ceremony. Maybe we could get him to have a private, one-on-one with the "good ol' boy committee" after the opening ceremonies.

The celestial beauty of being called a "cracker" is, we don't care. We're not thin-skinned and we're not going call a "news conference" and perpetually bemoan that we were "offended" by him at all.

As a part of the left coast crowd he naturally finds himself elevated over all things southern...except maybe southern California. The secret he doesn't know is, most of us "crackers" would take most any Southern state over California any day of the week. It's not rocket science; California slinks further into the abyss everyday, and besides great weather, they have nothing to offer.

So now we have to pick out a color for St. Crackers' Day...I suggest RED (for the sed states, for HOTness, and for if the South is so backwards, then STOP moving down here in droves.)

I may run for president of the "St. Crackers Association"...who knows.

I'll make a campaign promise right now, (clears throat) ON MY FIRST WEEK IN OFFICE I WILL START A CAMPAIGN FOR ALL SOUTHERNERS TO IMMEDIATELY CANCEL HBO, BECAUSE OF BILL MAHER".

Personally, if I made the money Maher is making, I think I would have taken that million bucks he sent to obama and had my nose fixed.

HAPPY ST. CRACKERS DAY

Some people, through no fault of their own, are born stupid.

Then there are those who spend a lifetime making a career out of being stupid.

And then, there are those who ask, “What is a Bill Maher?” They are intelligent.

You’re right! And it’s not only the Christian thing to do, it’s very, very good for your health. It takes a little understanding of the background of those who have hurt us, But when we do that, we lose our resentment and our self pity Additionally, the Our Father prayer says, “And forgive us our trespasses, as WE FORGIVE those who trespass against US.”

The Irish are Irish all year and damn proud of it. They drink and fight all year. St Patrick’s Day is the day we all pretend to be Irish for 24 hours.

So, by Maher’s “logic”, Southerners can proudly be Southerners all year, but on St Crackers Day, blacks and pansy yankee liberals have to wear the Confederate Flag and pretend to be Southern.

I’m in. Best idea ever Bill. Can’t wait to see you flying the Stars and Bars on the first St Crackers Day.

“That’s right, instead of spending the whole year flying the Confederate flag and saying ‘the South will rise again,’ you get just one day. “

It is amazing how these Yankee liberals get their panties in a wad over the Confederate Battle flag. Mrs BN & I recently watched “Stephen Fry in America”, the episode in which he toured the Deep South. At one stop in South Carolina he asked his hostess, a black school teacher, about the flag and all the Confederate stuff.

She said that some of her students wore the flag on their jackets. It was just their way of celebrating their heritage. She had no problem with it. She also said that they considered her to be their favorite teacher.

At first, Stephen Fry seemed quite surprised, but later, enlightened. He is a good observer, very objective. Good series, BTW, and available on Netflix.

The Mahers lapsed from the Catholic Church because Bill’s dad didn’t like their position on birth control. Given how Bill Junior turned out, I can see Bill Senior’s point.

Confederate Memorial Day
Top
Home > Library > Miscellaneous > Wikipedia
Confederate Memorial Day, also known as Confederate Decoration Day (Tennessee) and Confederate Heroes Day (Texas), is an official holiday and/or observance day in parts of the U.S. South as a day to honor those who died fighting for the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. Nine states officially observe Confederate Memorial Day: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas.[1]

States and dates observedState Date Remarks

Alabama Fourth Monday in April[2] The surrender of Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston to Union General William Sherman on April 26, 1865.

Arkansas Third Monday in January[3] Robert E. Lee’s birthday (state holiday combined with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day).

Florida April 26[4][5] See remarks at Alabama.

Georgia April 26[6] See remarks at Alabama.

Kentucky June 3[7] Jefferson Davis’s birthday.

Louisiana June 3[6][8] Jefferson Davis’s birthday. Set by state law, Louisiana Revised Statues 1:55

Maryland First Saturday of June

Mississippi Last Monday in April[9] See remarks at Alabama.

South Carolina May 10[10] See remarks at North Carolina.

Tennessee June 3[6] Jefferson Davis’s birthday.

Texas January 19[6] Confederate Heroes Day. In 1973, the Texas legislature combined the previously official state holidays of Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis’ birthdays into a single “Confederate Heroes Day” to honor all who had served the Southern Cause. In some years, this date may coincide with Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. State offices are partially staffed in recognition of this day.

Texas April 26[6] Confederate Memorial Day. Texas’ official holiday is named Confederate Heroes Day and is celebrated on January 19. However, many local communities and Southern historical organizations within the state also observe a separate “Confederate Memorial Day” on April 26.

Virginia Last Monday in May[6] Same as Memorial Day.

St Cracker Day and Black History Minute. Is it true that the term cracker comes from the days of slavery? I heard that the slave master was called the cracker because of the cracking noise his whip made. I don’t know if that true or not.
