How is shooting the kids from One Direction racist? I mean, it’s not funny, but it’s not racist.


Do you get paid to be dumb as a box of rocks or does it come naturally?

Who watches this guy.

Liberals are catching on to the fact that Maher isn't cool - and either are they...

Bill Maher is to comedy what “pink slime” is to beef.

How is shooting the kids from One Direction racist?...Ahhh, now laddie. They be Irish, another race entirely. That’s why we have a parade, a day and pubs to celebrate the lads. They just LOOK cuacasian but they are still fighting for their freedom.

Bill Maher has never been funny. He’s an angry, rude, hateful, liberal POS. His far left views and credentials are the only reason he gets any airtime.

Funny, he claims “it was a joke”, yet isn’t it “his” people who have foisted political correctness on us all? We now cannot use any kind of speech that is considered racist, bigoted or homophobic. Heaven forbid someone tell a tawdry joke from our side. Get over it Bill.

I have never watched this guy, but I know some women who do and it amazes me that they will accept his language and continual caustic ridicule of women, but go bonkers over the one time Rush called that Fluke girl a four letter word.

That said, Maher's joke, though stupid and crude, is not as bad as his treatment of the audience. He is a sick, vulgar, insecure man and anyone who likes him must have some inner desire to be vulgar and is living vicariously through his behavior. Yet, because of those hypocritical liberals he laughs all the way to the bank.

I guess Bill’s audience finally figured out he’s a loathesome troll.

I’m not sure if your cutesy little retort was directed at the wrong person, but perhaps you’d like to explain yourself for the benefit of everyone else who may come across your comment and question how someone that has just-barely functioning neutrons in their pea sized brain as you do could have assembled enough syllables in order to complete such a sophomoric sentence.

In other words (because I know you’ll need it simplified), please explain.

They're all just pist (CSD) because their stupidass selfish utopian dreams are just that, DREAMS, and will NEVER be anything more!

Dreams, with much hard work and a little luck can come true. Delusions on the other hand are just that, DELUSIONS. Libtards are delusional, INSANELY DELUSIONAL!

Bill maher retains his status as ugliest man in the world, inside and out.

He really works far too hard at earning that title.

Bill Maher is like the comedian in Brave New World who was not funny but only elicited nervous laughter by alluding to the taboo subject of the "Outside"

God willing Bill will soon be wandering aimlessly around Central Park holding hands with Keith “baggy pants” Olbermann, staring into the air while basking in total irrelevance.

Carlin was funnier (by degrees maybe) because he knew the difference between funny and just rude.

I think Carlin delighted in being rude. However, he would challenge the rudeness himself by cleverly calling out the absurdities of why it may be called rude in the first place. At least he made me think once in awhile.

Bill Maher is a walking waste receptacle.

By “those people” Maher meant blacks, and he’s implying he’d care more about blacks than Zimmerman. Or at the very least he means he does care about blacks.

But Maher did have a black live-in girlfriend.

And he did beat her up, and there was a police report, an arrest, and a lawsuit.

Google it.

The very LAST thing Maher can joke about is violence against blacks, because Maher was exactly that HIMSELF.

It like making a living making jokes about drunk driving when you have a conviction for that yourself.

Yep. Maher and Keith O. have just gone too far beyond us in their brilliance. We’re just not worthy of them. May they stroll Central Park together.

Bill Maher has never been funny.

So if Rush is "just an entertainer" what is Maher's job description? He is neither funny nor informative.

“Humor lesson for Maher:

Choking to death on your own vomit, not funny.”

I think I would laugh hysterically at video of Maher choking to death on his own vomit.

Author of article changes title to "Maher Curses Out Audience for Not Laughing at His Joke," with this postscript:

"Now, to be fair to Maher, my ignorance of boy bands was showing Saturday.

This article was originally titled "Bill Maher Curses Out Audience for Not Laughing at Racist Joke About Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman." I didn't realize the HBO Real Time host was referring to the popular British-Irish singing group [One Direction].

I thank the eagle-eyed NewsBusters reader Erik for bringing this to my attention via email, and apologize to Maher for accusing him of making a racist joke about Martin and Zimmerman.

It's still a pretty sad commentary that Maher and his writers are becoming too offensive for an audience he admitted months ago were a bunch of "brainwashed liberals."
