BILL MAHER: New rule. Don't make me go back to my old title. Anybody here remember the 90s? The 90s, people? It was a crazy time and I had a show called Politically Incorrect, because back then political correctness had gotten so out of hand. I mean, blacks became African-Americans, Mexicans became Latinos and Indians became casino owners. Broken homes became dysfunctional families. Bums became the homeless. Crazy people became FOX News reporters.
It was a tough time for comics. One young comedian even got into big trouble for saying the word chink. (Guest Sarah Silverman).
Now I bring this up in 2014 because, unfortunately, political correctness is making a comeback, and now with the internet, it is easier than ever. In the 90s, you had to at least get off your ass to be in a fake mood of hurt feelings. You needed signs, you needed petitions, you had to feed Al Sharpton. Back then, getting worked up over nothing was a lot of work. And now it seems like all the internet exists to do is point to the latest person who said the wrong thing so the rest of us can feel morally superior. And that's not what the internet is for; that's what college is for.
Social media is all about gotcha of a homophobic business man, or a sexist cartoonist, or a college president who fat-shames his dog by naming it Waddles.
Last week, when the first gay football player got chosen in the NFL Draft, a player named Don Jones tweeted, 'OMG. Horrible.' As is his right, under the asshole clause in the constitution. But the Dolphins fined him and threw him off the team until he underwent sensitivity training,

Wonder when he got the new writers.
But nothing bad said about MSDNC reporters.
Oh, everyone knows Obama was lying when he said that ... so it’s all good.
There's a lot of truth to that. And then didn't he announce that he was "evolving"? What a total crock. We are no longer a serious country.
Here is my question.
Was obama involved in a gay trist when he murdered those in Bengazi.
And did he change laws in any way so he could not be prosecuted as in DADT etc?
So when did he change the law?
Yes, coming from Mayer, it’s hard to believe he is in view of the tyranny out there!
I have always believed that it will take the Democrats to tame this monster loosed on our country, or it will not happen peacefully at least, at all.
I am sure there are some among them who are starting to break with the trend, but courageous action against it is not their long suit. Hells bells, it’s not even our long suit. Yet.
He conveniently forgot Macaca.
Is that H. L. Mencken I hear laughing?
Here’s one..so true....
The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office.
H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956)
He tweeted horrible when he was drafted? Or when he shoved cake in another mans mouth and licked it out on national tv?
Obama isn't in the military.
People forget that Romney has been far to the left of Obama on homosexual issues, before it was cool.
Romney supported fully homosexualizing the military and gay Scout leaders, and full homosexual rights, 20 years ago and was campaigning on it, as governor he gave America gay marriage.
He made some good points but, after reading his entire statement, I see he is just in favor of cutting people some slack, instead of persecuting them, until they “evolve” to the “progressive” point of view, or are completely marginalized by “progress” and are rendered irrelevant.
CIC is the head of military IMOHO
“He tweeted horrible when he was drafted? Or when he shoved cake in another mans mouth and licked it out on national tv?”
Even while criticizing political correctness, Maher engages in it.
Bill Maher is a raging ***, and a liberal sack of crap to boot, but I will give him a hat-tip for being consistent to his own professed beliefs.
That’s a REAL rarity among the left, most of them don’t really believe the crazy crap they’re spewing, to them it’s either half-heartedly mouthing the latest gibberish prayers at the altar of political correctness, or a bit of clever misdirection to distract from their own racism and shady business dealings. In either case most modern liberals don’t have the slightest interest in actually being consistent or intellectually honest.
Maher though? At least he strikes me as an honest liberal, and I can’t recall the last time I saw one of those.
It is. But it really doesn’t count with Obama. Everyone, left and right, knew he was lying to get elected. So it wasn’t sincere homophobia.
