‘Racist’ Michelle Obama quote fools panel; Bill Maher pretends Paul Ryan said it
bizpacreview ^

Posted on 03/29/2014 10:57:44 AM PDT by chessplayer

“Real Time” host Bill Maher caused some real confusion with his knee-jerk liberal guests Friday night when he offered them a “racist” quote from Paul Ryan that turned out to really be from Michelle Obama.

And he did it to make a point.

Maher was piling on the latest liberal meme of Paul Ryan as piñata for comments he made in mid-March about inner-city “men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work.”

Two of Maher’s guests, Center for American President Neera Tanden and comedian W. Kamau Bell, offered the predictable liberal commentary – saying Ryan’s blaming blacks and Hispanics, Ryan’s a racist, etc.

The token Republican on the panel, former U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio, made some excellent points about Democrat incompetence at efficient governing, but they went unanswered, as usual.

But the money moment came when Maher quoted “Ryan”: “Too many of our young people just can’t be bothered. They’re sitting on couches for hours playing video games, watching TV, instead of dreaming of being a teacher or a lawyer or a business leader, they’re fantasizing about being a baller or a rapper.”

When he revealed that it was Michelle Obama who said it rather than Ryan, he was greeted with a “hushed silence.”

“Is something less true if a white person says it about black people?” Maher asked.

Bell’s answer was classic liberal doublespeak.

“A truth is a truth and a lie is a lie,” he said, before asking about the context of the first lady’s speech. Told it was a commencement address at Bowie State University, the historically black college in Maryland, he visibly relaxed.

“She’s talking to black people,” he explained. “We talk to each other differently than we talk to you.”

And, there it is in a nutshell. But, they still call us racists...

Maher is still an idiot. He’s just the smartest idiot in the room at times because he loves to hang out with like-minded folks.

Stalinists lie. ALWAYS.

There is no debate of political ideas anymore. They are thugs who LIE to smear the opposition. They have NO morals. They have no ideas they can be honest about. They have to coerce people to accept their evil agenda.

Bill the mouth would have dragged a conservative through hell had the situation been reversed. He just sits and smiles at the racist N.

This is an example of liberal lies to rationalize and justify previous liberal lies.

Guess that is why Mooch didn't take ANY press with her to China.

Can't take a chance she will be talking to any BLACK Chinese.

Funny 'we' will never 'catch her' talking to ANYONE at a 'historically White College' because there are NO 'historically White Colleges'.

I have 'always' said that Jackson and Sharpton etc have said that Whites are smarter than Blacks BUT have NO rights.

When a 'Black Guy' is set upon in a 'White Neighborhood' the hue and cry is 'HE/SHE has a right to be in that Neighborhood.

When a 'White guy' is set upon in a 'Black Neighborhood' the scream is 'HE/SHE knows better than to be in that Neighborhood at that time of night'.

Should have asked, is something less true if a black person says it, heh.

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.

I am into Ronald Reagan Quotes today.

Next time some Republican says something "stupid" like "Macaca", and black folks shout "That's offensive!!", the reply should be "I wasn't talking to you; I was talking to white people. We talk to each other differently than we talk to you."

Maybe the Liberals are trying to distance themselves from the Obamas before the November elections.

I think I have a bit different take on this. I think the libs are well aware that it’s the truth, regardless of who says it. It’s that they’re not about to accept the truth if delivered by a white person, but they’ll begrudgingly listen to a black person, one of their own, saying the same thing.

It’s rather like if I am angry with a family member and in my anger say that they are selfish and rude, that’s fine. If another family member agrees with me and says the same thing, fine. However, let someone else come up to me and tell me that my family member is selfish and rude, well, I will jump to the defense of my family member.

Don’t know if that makes sense, but that’s how I read it.

And she won't, unless she runs into Marcus Chong over there.

Comedian W. Kamau Bell, obviously uncomfortable, responded back: She’s talking to Black people,” Bell retorted. “We talk to each other differently than we talk to you.”

Highlighting why "black people" can't be taken seriously.

White liberal elites look down on black people but that’s not how they talk to black people - it’s how they talk when they’re talking to other white liberal elites. Is that something you would excuse as ‘being family’?

If what you say is a fact, then, no, that’s not what I would expect.

I think that blacks just think that they can say what they like about each other, but don’t let a white person say the same thing. I have seen some families which operate the same way. I’m not saying it makes sense, but I can see how it happens.
