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.

The more Bill gets taxed the more Bill has conservative lapses.

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”.

Something is going on with Maher. He still is a liberal A-hole but in the past couple months, he’s been calling liberals on more and more of their BS.

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

Yeah...that's not racist at all.

She’s talking to Black people,” Bell retorted. “We talk to each other differently than we talk to you.”

Why, wouldn't that be... racist?

Billy’s probably going to get a call from the plantation overseer.

He is right. Count the number of times they use the N word with each other.

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.
