-The Washington Times ^ | April 28, 2013 | By Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 04/28/2013 7:56:04 PM PDT by saywhatagain

“This country is becoming a police state, and it is very troubling to me,” the “Real Time” host said while showing pictures of police officers patrolling the city and searching for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

First it was taxes are too high, then . . .

Still a misogynist, still a hateful person, but there seems to be an evolution taking place

No evolution till he admits that America is becoming exactly what he’s been asking for for years.

He’s waking up. Especially about the Police State, which even something that even a few FReepers have failed to see.

Says the guy who likely is accompanied by his own armed police state

Yeah, Bill, it’s actually getting that bad. You can thank your beloved “diversity” for it

Maher will say whatever he has to to keep his name in the news. He has no principals.

Yeah it means nothing coming from the clown who has openly called for Obama to be a dictator and just do what he wants by decree.

I wanna see Maher in tears begging for forgiveness before I begin to believe he is seeing the light.

[[Still a misogynist, still a hateful person, but there seems to be an evolution taking place ]]

I think it’s mroe a reaction of shock- He and his ilk foguht long and hard for such draconian socialist rules and laws, thinmking I guess that it was only goign to apply to the right- but when they to their shock discovered that they too were affected, well then, things became ‘unfair’ again- Fair to peopel like Maher means stickign it to the right while exempting the left fro mthe same laws

Hey Maher - It is your buddy whose ass is sitting in the Oval Office. This is what you wanted and what you voted for. Elections have consequences.

The left is mean, sure, but to whom are they MOST mean..?

People who flip to our side & minorities who are on our side.

First he spoke out against high calif tax, and now this.

I can already hear them sharpening their knives; politics is very, very personal to them.

Well, he hates communism now, admires Ted Nugent, and sits by the hearth in glasses and a pipe with Cognac and thinks curmudgeonly thoughts (for a NY liberal) as of late. I think he finally pieced it together, and probably because he’s a father now... picturing her living his life as he did.

Well, Bill, whose fault is that? Last I heard it wasn’t the Tea Party flying drones around and running armored vehicles through city streets. Last I heard it wasn’t conservatives who calmly declared the Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendments “inoperative”. I don’t recall many right-wingers insisting that the First Amendment be “improved” by Hate Speech laws. Bill, look: it’s control versus freedom, and your side has always been for control. Did you only now figure this out?

This is why Lenin called guys like this “useful idiots.” He was useful for a very long time. He’ll find out what the “idiot” part of the phrase means soon enough.

Bill Mahr(!) thinks the country is becoming a police state. Bill Mahr?!?! You're a little late to the party, Bill. Bill is even figuring out that Muslims are killers and not friends. Duh.

The real question is whether the great awakening is too little and too late. I really don't know

Don’t believe this repulsive cretin for a single second. He went out so far on a hateful, far-left limb, he’d boxed himself in and was being increasingly ignored and dismissed. Now he’s trying to scurry back (like the diseased rodent that he is) and reclaim some cred on the backs of libertarianism. Which, by the way, he used to profess being, before he totally outed himself as a left-wing loon.

The guy is human garbage. I hope he chokes to death.

Your statement appears to be mostly true. Specially considering the following recent exchange

Brian Levin - "Could I just interject. Look, it’s not like people who are Muslim who do wacky things have a monopoly on it. We have hypocrites across faiths… Jewish, Christian who say they’re out for God and thecy end up…"

Bill Maher "You know what, yeah, yeah, You know what — that’s liberal bullshit right there … I mean yes there … all faiths…

On many a thread I have ran across several that seem to be suffering ‘Harry Reid’ Syndrome talking about ‘Imagined Tyranny’ and clear choosing security over their Freedoms.

Methinks he smells a group of suckers in the conservative and libertarian movements.

He's hoping to boost ratings; I'm sorry, the man is a cheap whore with no scruples, no core, and honestly quite stupid.

I loved how Breitbart made him fess up to being a European socialist rather than a libertarian. Now he wants us all to believe he's a libertarian again.

The man is scum.

Ah, I think you have pinpointed his principles! I would add though that I think he has become a bit more exposed to the right’s point of view (on some issues) and is conflicted a bit - (not enough to change his mind of course) but it is nice to see the small changes...

Maher is your typical bedwetting liberal pond scum.
He couldn’t change enough to satisfy me although in many
cases I welcome those who see the light. Personally, I
am not even bothered by conservative athiests. But there
is way too much slimy factor going on, here. Stay where you’re
at butt nugget Billy. You wear it well.

That’s how the liberals are. They will cheer it on until it starts to affect them personally, just like in Martin Niemöller’s poem . . .
