Bill Maher Fools Guests With ‘Racist’ Paul Ryan Quote That Was Actually Said By Michelle Obama
IJReview ^ | 03/29/2014 | Michael Hausam

Posted on 03/29/2014 12:03:27 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

After a short discussion with guests about some controversial statements from Paul Ryan, that some asserted were racist, Maher then read a quote that he falsely attributed to Ryan. He then dropped the hammer by identifying the source: Michelle Obama.

Maher made made the point that black people can say things that white people cannot.

I’m just asking: Is something less true if a white person says it about black people? This sounds even more like, ‘Hey Black people, don’t be lazy.’

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.”

Typically defending the left side of the aisle, Maher also has a reputation for calling out hypocrisy and double-standards on occasion, no matter who it’s from.

If a hardcore progressive like Maher can reject the notion that any white person with non-leftwing solutions for what’s going on in non-white communities, like Paul Ryan, is automatically “racist,” then what’s other liberals’ excuse for the non-stop race-baiting?CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO

Good job on this - there is a double standard, and it is well past time to end it.

Doesn’t matter in the least - Blacks can say any sort of outrageous crap these days and no one can say anything about it.

If standards imposed on blacks are so low as to permit MF’er ten times in a well-known song, WHAT would be the next step?

The same people getting outraged when other people use innocuous words like, “bossy”.

If any black made that comment to me, I'd tell them what's good for you is good for me. You can't have it both ways, and you're not going to get that from me. At every opportunity, we must put down the “victim” whenever they whine that they have special privileges ‘cause they're black and downtrodden, etc., and special lingo and special yada, yada, yada. They respect a good slapdown when they get one, ‘cause they know they're BS’in.

Actually, that is NOT racist.

Now, if he had said, "We talk to each other differently than we talk to YOU PEOPLE", well, that would have been an obvious racist slur.

Actually:

Willie Clark, president of the N.A.A.C.P. branch in San Bernadino, Calif., said the overall tone of Mr. Perot's remarks and particularly his use of the phrase "your people" reflected how culturally out of touch he was with his audience.

"When he said 'you people' or 'your people,' it was like waving a red flag in front of a bull," he said. "It's something white folks have used when they don't want to call you nigger, but they don't want to treat you like an equal."

-- New York Times: July 12, 1992

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

That is clearly on display all over the country now. I live in the “Cradle of the Confederacy” and black people clearly are given preference in government hiring and in a lot of hiring for so called private businesses. It is so blatantly obvious in government hiring as to be ridiculous and yet many black people still have the gall to claim they are the VICTIMS of discrimination in places where they clearly are the beneficiaries of discrimination. I am still waiting to hear Steve Harvey explain how if one out of eight people in this country are black he gets away with having a black family on every single showing of “The Family Fued”, there are only two families on at a time so fifty percent of his guests are black in a country which is twelve to thirteen percent black. If that is not discrimination in favor of blacks then I don’t understand simple arithmetic and I made an A in the subject on almost every report card.

Virtually all racism in this country, today, emanates from non-white origins.

“We talk to each other differently than we talk to you.”

Maybe that is why Blacks are so convinced whites are trashing them when they aren’t around.

Simple projection.

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

Even libtards like Maher can only swallow so much kool aid...

Quite frankly if a I was a liberal, I'd shut my pie hole letting anybody know...what's been coming out of the pie holes of Reid, Pelosi, Obama and their ilk is embarrassing to say the least..

Blacks are allowed to call each other a word that begins with the letter after “m”.

No one else may.
