Bill Maher On George Zimmerman Tape: Is There Any Doubt That He Is A ‘Big...Liar?’
Mediaite ^ | March 30, 2012 | Josh Feldman

Bill Maher got really fired up on his show tonight over the Trayvon Martin shooting, and tore into George Zimmerman for his pithy defense of his actions that night, bluntly calling him a “big f!@#ing liar.” Maher showed the tape of Zimmerman, which may or may not disprove the claim that Martin broke his nose and fought with him. Maher thought Zimmerman’s claim was completely ridiculous, and asked if the tape was definitive proof that Zimmerman was lying about the struggle.

Panelist Van Jones noted that in most cases, the families of the victim tend to trust that “the police is on your side,” but since the police didn’t arrest Zimmerman due to the stand your ground law, Jones admitted that he wasn’t sure how to make his kids safe if they couldn’t trust the police or wear hoodies or whatever else may be too dangerous for them. Maher asked if at this point, anyone could doubt that Zimmerman was lying.

Rich Galen made it clear that no matter what kind of person Martin was, he didn’t deserve what happened to him, and tried to point out that teenagers die needlessly due to traffic accidents, but Maher steered the conversation back to the topic. He said that if it was true that Zimmerman had a broken nose, blood would have been all over his shirt in the video. He asked why “the right [is] so anxious to defend George Zimmerman” and suggesting that everyone is rushing to judgment.

Too bad pig Maher can’t test his theory as to whether a broken nose necessarily entails large amounts of blood flowing all over by running his into someone’s fist.

When they heard the name George Zimmerman of Florida the Left immediately thought they had an eighty year old retired Jewish Democrat accountant originally from Queens New York. They thought maybe George Zimmerman was a runaway from the Democrat’s Jewish plantation (Bob Dylan’s real name is Zimmerman after all) who had gone NRA gun toting Republican TEA partier on them.

They were wrong.

George Zimmerman is a 28 year old self identified brown skinned Hispanic Democrat who they wish was an NRA member. He tutors Black children in his home and is not a TEA partier.

They looked at the picture of Trayvon Martin and fooled themselves into believing he was an angelic youth headed for Harvard someday. Instead they got a budding thug who had a series of scrapes with authorities that included possession of burglary tools and drug possession.

They thought they could find evidence that Zimmerman was on top of Martin punching him and calling him the “N” word. Instead they have an eye witness backing up Zimmerman’s claim of self defense and the “N” charge is just a dream.

They thought his neighbors would tell reporters Zimmerman hated Blacks. Instead they have a Black character witness for Zimmerman and his Black friends and family.

They thought they would have a White Police Chief who would kiss their feet to keep peace – and his job. They lost that on day two. They now have Black Chief so that angle is gone.

They thought they would have two justifiably shell shocked parents who would do whatever they were told. Instead they got a pair of opportunists who have even less shame than would be Puppet Masters Sharpton and Jackson. They have copyrighted their son’s name and quit their jobs to promote the sale of “Trayvon” merchandise.

They thought they could bring in the Black Panthers to scare White people then go away. Instead they got the Panthers putting a bounty on Zimmerman and threatening to burn down Detroit.

They thought Zimmerman would be living in a “Lilly White” gated fortress that screamed “Minorities keep out.” Instead they got a community that is more than half non White.

They thought they could get Black celebrities to jump in and add strength and lust to their circus of lies. Instead they got a dimwitted Spike Lee tweeting a wrong address for the lynch mob to descend upon ,and Lee is now on his way to a nasty losing lawsuit.

They thought they could get a bunch of Black high school kids to peacefully march to protest what had happened to “Brother Trayvon.” What they got was a pack of wilding animals who ransacked a Walgreens after their march.

Now they are all so eager to wear hoodies to show they are “down for the struggle.” Do you want to bet the hoodies end up being made in non union sweatshops in some third world country?

This is too rich.

Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Schnitt is calling for MSNBC to fire their host, the Rev. Al Sharpton, for his attempt at inciting violence. Schnitt has called for Sharpton’s arrest if riots occur.

The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that Sharpton is calling for an escalation in civil disobedience against the city of Sanford if George Zimmerman is not arrested.

IF ONLY! There was a time when one such as Al would be charged with insite to riot.

Because Bill, you f’n putz! We have a justice system providing for a speedy and fair trial and not a f’n circus lynch mob type of justice you and your cohorts seem to be advocating.

Well, that settles it for me. I’ve been waiting to hear Maher’s take on this.

If Maher says it ain’t so, then it is so.

And you can take it to the bank.

“Jones admitted that he wasn’t sure how to make his kids safe if they couldn’t trust the police”

The law that precludes the police from arresting someone without probable cause probably protects minorities more than it does anyone else.

Wasn't Zimmerman wearing a RED shirt? Just maybe it wouldn't be that visible.

I got a suggestion for Maher. Get into black face, put on a hoodie and go walking around you’re own neighborhood. If someone asks you what you’re doing pull out your cell phone and point it. You’ll find out what kind of neighbors you have.

a minute later He (Maher) is suggesting that “everyone is rushing to judgment.”

Hey Billy boy thats some pretty funny shit. Oh I forget, you are a comedian.

Yeah you are right, you better defend Maha Rush, because son, you and your cronies got that hate speech down to a science! At least you figured that out, he (Rush) goes then that makes you next in line

Why are they launching a race war?

Everyone needs to chill, and start thinking!

The Trayvon Martin story is starting to stink worse than a cesspit. And, the more it stinks, the more it is becoming obvious that it is and was manufactured from the start to exacerbate racial tensions. The big question are why and why now.

Let’s go through it again quickly.

A run-of-the-mill shooting incident that took place more than a month ago suddenly and without warning bursts on to the national stage from coast-to-coast, Occupy goes on a semi-rampage and all the professional race agitators (including the President) immediately jump in to whip up the flames…

Then what happens? Well, let’s see. Word comes out that Zimmerman is Hispanic (and Hispanic looking) but he magically is transformed into “White-Hispanic” which is a term I doubt many people have ever heard; Martin gets outed as a thug and at least a wanna-be-gangbanger, his misogynistic and provocative tweets spread all over the media – and instead of quieting the furor, causes the Left to double down and even turn up the heat.

Why?

Why in the springtime of a year with a terrible economy and an unemployment situation that has drastically worsened for all Americans, but most seriously for minorities? Why with a long hot summer ahead and a national election on the horizon?

Why? And why now?

Look for clues people! This is not spontaneous! This is an orchestrated operation proceeding on a schedule, launched by persons unknown to deliberately stoke racial tensions and possibly even racial violence between black and white Americans.

Why?

Whatever the plan is, and whoever is running it, the worst thing we can do is let them bulldoze us on their schedule – and by us I mean everybody of all races who is not interested in becoming cannon fodder in an artificially stimulated race war!

Wake up, people. Calm down. Talk to your friends of other races. Let’s all reaffirm our ties of dignity and our commitment to civil behavior. Everyone, let’s stop and remember that we do not have to follow those banners. We don’t have to take the bait they are leaving.

We are not stupid bulls you can just wave a flag in front of and expect to charge.

Something is going on. Let’s figure out what it is and find a way to respond intelligently and calmly.

Chill!!!

There’s a simple answer to all your questions, and it’s the selfsame answer as to why the heretofore obscure personage Sandra Fluke suddenly became famous a few weeks ago. Namely, it’s election season. The Obama campaign needs its base together. That means identity politics, and that means scaring women and blacks into thinking Republicans are out to get them.

I am tempted to say “duh,” but wouldn’t want to be insulting to honest questions.

Aren’t we lucky to have folks like Bill Maher, Roseanne Barr, Spike Lee, et al? I mean think of the time we can save by just calling upon these pillars of our society to pass judgement on people without any regard to the law or our justice system!! (Do the names Tawana Brawley, the Duke LaCross Team and Richard Jewel come to mind?) If Zimmerman is found to be completely innocent and to have acted in self-defense, don’t hold your breath that any of the usual suspects will ever apologize!
