Maher: Palin Would Kill Indians From a Helicopter
NRO ^ | August 3, 2009 | Tim Graham

Posted on 08/03/2009 2:45:13 PM PDT by RobinMasters

Days before the 2008 election, HBO host Bill Maher expressed his hatred for Sarah Palin: "If there is such a thing as karma, let's hope that Sarah Palin comes back as a wolf being shot from a plane." Maher returned to the wolf-shooting metaphors on Friday night's Real Time as he discussed her farewell address in Alaska – except this time Maher suggested Palin would execute Cherokee Indians. Right-leaning humorist Joe Queenan set off the "joking."

QUEENAN: Are you blaming Sarah Palin for the extermination of the Cherokee tribe?

MAHER: I certainly am.

QUEENAN: Exactly.

MAHER: Not that she did it, but if she was around then, she would have – from a helicopter, like she did the wolves.

Notice how the logic collapses: Palin in a helicopter in the 1800s? That was not the only moment when the Palin mockery seemed a little mangled on the Maher show. This is how the bashing began:

I think it’s time to dig up some dirt on this little p.o.s. What a looney toon.

Helicopters in the 1800's?

Lay off the drugs Maher... or better just whack yourself.

I am surprised that Maher and NRO seem unaware that the term “apologetics” applies beyond the theological sphere of Christianity. Apologia is rhetoric of self defense. Apologetics is a technical extension of the category understood since Aristotle.

Its Palin who has a clue and her various critics as usual do not.

After some of the things Bill Maher has said and done, he’d better be concerned about his own karma.

Look how childish the left has made so many people.

No one should give a good damn about shooting a wolf in Alaska. Period.

That it is predation control to protect livestock is icing on the cake. Turning shooting a wolf into an immoral act is just kooky.

Maher is his own worst enemy. Some of his rants make him look like an absolute imbecile. I’m content to watch him destroy himself, and he will take his audience with him, when folks realize what a fool you have to be to laugh at some of this stuff.

It was Andrew Jackson — the father of the Democratic Party — who ethnically cleansed, not exterminated, the Cherokee from Tennessee and Alabama.

Maher’s idea of a joke was to mock the Crocodile Hunter’s tragic death while the family was in mourning.

Yeah he’s a real nice guy compared to those who allow predatory wolf control. Not.

Has anyone figured out that these threads only spread Mahar's insane remarks and he probably gets off reading all of the insults from the folks that he loves to hate? He wouldn't make these comments if they didn't evoke all of this emotion from the right.

Stop giving this waste of skin any bandwidth.

Drunk, drugged up, wigged out and a poofter. Bad B-movie actor, asshole unfunny comic, and a seriously depleted intellect...I can’t for the live of me figure out why HBO has given him a show. I have seriously thought about reworking my premium satellite lineup and will when my commitment period is over.

An acquanintance of mine who so upset about reading about shooting wolves in Alaska that she sent an e-mail around to the rest of us in our writing group. She was saddened and appalled.....meanwhile a few years ago she revealed to us that she had had an abortion...apparently she cares more about the wolves in Alaska than her own flesh and blood.

Bill Maher cares more about the wolves then the victims of 9/11, he called the terrorists who killed them “brave” this guy is a NUT. He is showing everyone what liberals really are, if people haven’t figured it out already, these leftists are beyond sick. They should lump them all together and stick them in a padded room

I guess HBO has given him a show for the same reason they are running:

1 Hung, about a male gigolo with a big you know

2 Teddy - A tribute to Teddy Kennedy

3 True Blood (although I love the show) which regularly dumps on religion as bigotry

I’m sure I’m missing many other examples.

Palin is married to a Native Alaskan.

Now is the time to start calling Maher a racist for his attack on Native people. Start a recall petition. Stand in his audience and question his intelligence. File a charge with some civil rights commission. Call what he said a “hate crime.”

The time has long passed to be nice to these people. Personalize him; polarize him; and do the same thing to him that he wants to do to Sarah Palin. He’s got more money than Sarah, so he should be able to put up with it.

Got that one topped, friend’s sister in Hollywood land wants to protect the trees because the Native Americans said trees contain a “noble spirit”.

Meanwhile, she is an angry aggressive supporter of aborting humans.

Wolves/Trees vs. Humans.

In fact, maybe Bill Maher will be reincarnated as a baby caribou

He obviously doesn't understand wildlife and living off the land unless you consider the Playboy Mansion 'wildlife'.

Hmmm, Let’s see - The Trail of Tears occurred in 1838/1839. The Republican Party was founded in 1854 . . . It couldn’t have been the Republicans.

Exactly. Indian Removal was the policy promoted by Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Democrats. Started in the late twenties with the rise of Jackson and culminated in the Trail of Tears in the late thirties.
