Skip to comments.Maher Turns on Occupiers, Denounces Them as D-bags That Should ‘Get a Job’

The Occupy movement lost one of its most ardent supporters in the media Friday night.
On HBO's Real Time, host Bill Maher surprisingly said of the protesters, "As I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Like, you know what - get a job...Now it's just a bunch of [d-bags] who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution" (video follows with transcript and commentary, vulgarity warning):
BILL MAHER: Let me ask you about another occupation, because this is - and you would be good on this too, panel -, the occupation, the Occupy Wall Street, because similar to Afghanistan, when you occupy anything for too long people do get pissed off. And as I watch them on the news now I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Like, you know what - get a job. Only because, you know, the people who originally started, I think they went home and now it's just these anarchist stragglers. And this is the problem when you, you know, when your movement involves sleeping over in the park. You wind up attracting the people who were sleeping over in the park anyway.
[Laughter and applause]
MAHER: And I think that's where we are now with the Occupy movement. They did a great job bringing the issue of income and equality to the fore, but now it's just a bunch of douchebags who think throwing a chair through the Starbucks window is going to bring on the revolution.
Truly surprising, especially coming less than two months after Time magazine gushed and fawned over the Occupy movement as it named "The Protester" its Person of the Year.
Makes you wonder if that magazine will come around, and when the rest of the liberal media will recognize that this movement is not what they hoped for.
>>D-bags That Should Get a Job<<
Bill Maher is a d-bag who should quit his job.
“Ann Coulter and Bill Maher used to date”
How tall is Maher?
He looks like Coulter could eat peanuts off the top of his head.
I think some degree of cynicality is right. Now that the GOP is bidding fair to nominate the Big Wall Street Guy backed up by an even Bigger Wall Street Guy, Obama does not want to trip up the process. He’d have a harder time with Newt than with Mitt. Mitt’s great at slinging masses of wild accusations, not so great at hitting the bulls eye except by chance.
OMG! Your post is hysterical!!!! Yep, Maher and Coulter - a match made in heaven.
Nahh.. What he isn’t telling us is one of them must have pooped on his Uber ( You fill in the blank ) Euro Sports car, just like the did the NYC Police Car. He isn’t that smart it must be personal...
Google says that Maher is 5'8" and Coulter is 6 feet tall. Maybe not quite enough of a disparity for that eating peanuts off the top of the head scenario...but close! :-)
Unless it’s a 24-Hour clock, then it’s only once a day.
You know that you’re Certified Trash when Maher trashes you!
LOL the only problem with that is the OWS’er sure don’t care about what they think.Last I read their next plan is to re create ‘68 at the dem convention?
How many things do the liberals and media (but I repeat myself) have to get wrong before they lose all of their following?
I wouldn't just applaud... I'd probably help.
Oh dear. I didn’t even think of that. But, now that I have, I’m going to need a case of brain bleach.
He and coulter are toking from the same stash?
Those are my thoughts also. The Dems spawned this evil brood in the belief that it would spur them to election victories in 2012. That is why the Press, and the Democrat leadership were gushing over these ne'er do wells, when this program first started. Now that it has turned out to alienate most of America, the Dems and their allies in the Media are trying to disown their progeny. Baloney.
I’ve been saying all along that OWS was not a good thing for Obama (regardless of who was engineering the protests). These will hurt him badly in November, because they keep the focus on our miserable job market and general decline in our standard of living.
