Bill Maher Calls Out Scalia, Trump and Palin For Being More Racist Than Paula Deen (Beyond idiotic)
PoliticusUSA - Real Liberal Politics ^ | June 29, 2013 | Jason Easley

Posted on 06/29/2013 1:50:16 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Bill Maher claimed that Antonin Scalia, Sarah Palin, and Donald Trump are more racist than Paula Deen.

Maher’s comments begin at the 5:35 mark of the video:

(VIDEO-AT-LINK)

Maher said,

Can I read a quote from Scalia, Justice Scalia about this? He said, and this is about the Voting Rights Act. He said, ‘Whenever a society adopts racial entitlements, it is very difficult to get out of them through the normal political process.’ Just the fact that he talks about black people voting as an entitlement, that is so much more racist than anything Paula Deen ever said. And I don’t know why I have become the champion of Paula Deen. I didn’t even know who this person was a year ago. I thought it was Tammy Faye Baker if you had shown me a picture of her.

But I mean, Donald Trump is a worst racist, but he doesn’t say the N-word. We have replaced having a conversation about race, with oh, okay, liberals feel good about themselves if they make the bad person go away. Who’s the bad person? The one we caught saying that one word.

Donald Trump is a worse racist, but he gets to keep his show because he never said the word. Sarah Palin is a worse racist. She said Obama was shucking and jiving his way to victory. Newt Gingrich said he was the food stamp president. This is real racism.

Whether it is Paula Deen, Donald Trump, Antonin Scalia or Sarah Palin, all their racism comes from the same belief that African-Americans are inferior. It all comes from the same place of discrimination against an individual or a group of people based on their membership in a group or category.

There is no such thing as real and unreal racism. Maher appeared to upset by the fact that Paula Deen gets punished while racists like Trump and Palin get to continue to keep their positions on television. Is the difference the fact that Deen admitted to using the N-word? There is more to it than that.

In her deposition Deen mentioned the idea for a “slave wedding,” and there is a self admitted pattern of racist beliefs that is impossible to overlook. Paula Deen has never fully seemed to realize that her attitudes are wrong. She may not be a mean spirited person, but she has adopted a defiant attitude about her straight out of Jim Crow beliefs.

The reality is that racism is racism. Maher was correct about Palin, Scalia and Trump, but I think something that he said earlier in the segment is the real reason why Deen is punished while the other raging racists continue to spew their hate.

By using the N-word, Deen was practicing Racism 1.0. Trump, Scalia Palin and Gingrich have moved on to Racism 2.0. Racism 2.0 is in some ways worse that the original because it is subtle. It is hidden in language that makes it seem like anything but discrimination. Whereas Paula Deen’s old school racism is easily spotted and rejected, the new version is much easier to slip into our national subconscious.

The American people know Racism 1.0 (Paul Deen style) when they see it, and they don’t like it. Many Americans haven’t learned to recognize, or don’t want to face the reality of, Racism 2.0 (Trump, Palin, Scalia, Gingrich style).

Bill Maher was right to call out the new form or racism, but wrong to try to split the two. America is now wise enough to punish Paula Deen’s racism, but Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, and the new breed of racism need to held to the same standard.

Despite what the Supreme Court believes, racism is alive and well. Our goal shouldn’t be to rank the degrees of racism, but to eliminate it all.

When people crave attention, they go to any means to succeed. Maher subscribes to the "any publicity is good publicity” theory.

Well SURE they are more racist than Paula Deen! After all, they disagree with Obama MORE than Deen does.

And let's face it: The definition of racism, in 2013, is anyone who disagrees on any matter with Barack Obama!

you know 2ndDivision it is said never let a political accusation lay. Perhaps it is time to ask maher if he hates people because of what they believe. It is certain maher hates people because they cannot believe in him, maher. Perhaps each time he makes an accusation, he should be asked why he (maher) hates people that do not agree with him.

Another lib having to use Palin...and now Scalia and Trump...to try and stay relevant.

How many viewers does this idiot pull in on average? I pity the conservative who has to watch, just to get these absurd soundbites.

Bill Maher was dropped on his head too many times as a child, a sick, demented little freak..of course he sides with Deen, Deen is a Democrat, after all, Dems are allowed to use the N word or any other word, as long as it comes out of the mouth of a Dem

Some people seem to think that there aren’t different races or that the different races shouldn’t be recognized as being different.

If nobody posted anything about him on FR ever again, he’d go off the air very shortly.

The people who are outraged by him are the people who keep his show going.

Ignore him.

He’ll go away.

Bill Maher, do you project much? When did YOU stop using the N-word? The pathetic rants from holier-than-thou closet racists like Maher, “Tingles” Matthews, etc. are more like cries for help.

Of the people who have been called racist, not one in a hundred has done anything to really earn the title.

Not meant as a knock on you, but why do we conservatives bother with anything this little POS says. We should just ignore him..

Because he has a popular TV show. The same reason we need to know what David Letterman, Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton, Modern Family, Mad Men, the View, True Blood, American Idol, Glee, Dr. Oz and a thousand other things are up to. They're part of popular culture.

His show is popular? I never hear anyone talk about him, or his program, other than on this forum.

How many viewers does he average?

I say he deserves no attention, but that's just MHO :D

About 1.4 million viewers. About as popular as Sean Hannity, The Five, Greta, etc.

Thanks. I thought Hannity was up in the 2M area. It’s been so long since I’ve kept up with him, I had no idea. The only one of those I ever tune in to is Greta.

Yep. This is all a justification or, I should say, a rationalization for excluding Obama’s white oponents from participation in American politics and it is working. 26% of Democrats believe the Tea Party is a greater threat than Al Qaeda! The majority of Americans believe conservatives are racist!

As someone said on Fox today, Maher would have been off the air years ago were he held to the same standards as Paula Deen.....

Funny how 0-Tard could get away with being a “bigot” just several short months ago by opposing faggotry in marriage during the presidential campaign, but Paula Dean isn’t allowed to “evolve” the way liberals so often do, after using the ‘N-Word’ damn near THIRTY YEARS AGO!!! The hypocrisy knows no bounds!

Maher is an anti-white kook, and in many countries this sort of group vilification would be illegal and he would justly be arrested.

In case you missed it, Governor Palin was quoting Jay Carney.
