Bill Maher Curses Out Audience for Not Laughing at Racist Joke
Newsbusters ^

Posted on 04/21/2012 8:15:59 AM PDT by chessplayer

Bill Maher on Friday cursed out his audience for not laughing at a racist joke about Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.

When his HBO Real Time attendees fell totally silent after the host said the judge in Florida gave Zimmerman bail under the condition that he only shoot "those kids," Maher raised both middle fingers at the crowd saying, "F--k you...You can get the stick out of your a--. It's just a joke" (video follows with transcript and commentary, serious vulgarity warning):

Geez Billy, why so angry? Is it ‘cause you know deep down that you are a totally unfunny loser? Abusing an audience of people who chose to come see you is probably not your best strategy...

Bill Maher has an audience??

Who knew??

(Excluding, of course, the Newsbusters crew who, apparently, hang on his every word...)

Huh? I don't think the author of the article gets the joke. How is shooting the kids from One Direction racist? I mean, it's not funny, but it's not racist. I think the fact that the author doesn't capitalize One Direction in his transcript proves he doesn't get it. One Direction:

Not racist, but apparently it would be homophobic.

Maher is a very very very bad rip off of George Carlin. A total Carlin wannabe. Thing is Carlin never would have told a joke like that because it’s so stupid and unfunny.

Considering the quality of his “humor”, potty mouth might be well advised to install a laugh track.

Billy Boy Maher is on a race to the bottom and he'll eventually find out that even paying Obama $1,000,000 in protection money wasn't enough to save his career.

Bill, didn’t anybody ever tell you?

It’s not a very good joke if you have to tell people it is one.

The sad thing is this unfunny creep has been paid enough that he actually had a million bucks to give to anyone.

Maher and our president seem to have the same reaction from their audiences these days...

...and the same petulant reactions as well.

Time to give both the hook.

Carlin was funnier (by degrees maybe) because he knew the difference between funny and just rude. Maher’s lib audience prefers rude over funny. Quoting Dr. Strange “liberalism is a mental disorder”.

Sorry Bill, mainstream America does not share your narrow worldview. Perhaps a job at MSNBC? Your brand of rhetoric would dovetail nicely with likes of Sharpton, Mika, and Chris “Tingles” Matthews..

The subtext here is that the general public has rejected Benjamin Crump’s Trayvon Martin narrative as presented by state-controlled media.

Maher is a degenerate, sub-human piece of filth. I look forward to the day when I see his name in the obituaries, hopefully having choked to death on his own vomit. America will automatically go up a few notches when its rid of this worthless cretin.

Humor lesson for Maher:

Choking to death on your own vomit, not funny.

Choking to death on someone else’s vomit, funny.

I think the only reason Maher even has an audience is because most of those people really don’t have anywhere else to go. Most are basement dwellers who have been evicted by their parents.

What is astonishing is that that simple assclown Maher is still getting any audience at all.
Seriously.. Who finds that little punk amusing? Besides Ann Coulter, I mean.
