  • Director Affleck Casts Literal Bible Believers as 'Neanderthals'

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

    If you had any questions about how antiwar liberals were going to respond when the Democrats didn't withdraw American troops from Iraq like they promised during the 2006 campaign, you got your answers last night on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher." When the host moved the discussion to what the panel thought of "the Democrats, you know, caving in on this Iraq spending bill," actor Ben Affleck went on a tirade about these "f***ing people," saying that the "Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards" and of "looking like p***ies." Affleck concluded his attack on his...

    I think it's pretty stupid to vote for Democrats who, rather than protecting individual rights, openly want to violate individual rights. The whole job of the government is the former, and so you're electing people who want to do the exact opposite of what the actual role of government is. Rather than a government that protects rights (as a policeman), you elect Democrats who create a government that violates rights (like a criminal itself). Yes, the Republicans are bad too, but the Democrats take rights-violating to the n'th degree, and their ideal political system (socialism) is one of the most...

    On his Real Time show on Friday, HBO comedian Bill Maher referred to the U.S. military as a "mass murder machine" as he recalled that the reason he likes Bernie Sanders so much is because the Vermont socialist is the only presidential candidate who would argue against building a bigger military. A bit earlier, as he discussed with the New Yorker's Lawrence Wright the possibility of Saudi government officials being linked to the 9/11 attacks, Maher also made a crass reference to Tea Party conservatives -- whom he has mocked in the past as "teabaggers" -- by referring to Muslim...

    The University of Michigan made headlines this week for initially canceling a screening of the blockbuster film American Sniper because some Muslim students said that it being shown would make them feel unsafe. The college has since reversed this decision, but its not the only time something like this has happened. Here are seven other things that a school or its students have declared hazards to campus safety: 1. Bill Maher When the University of Berkeley announced that Bill Maher would be its graduation speaker last October, more than 6,000 students signed a petition demanding that he be banned because...

    <p>Bill Maher made politically correct liberals the subject of his show-ending new rule tonight, as hes done before, mocking how worked up everyone got about comments from Dolce and Gabbana about synthetic babies. Maher said hes getting tired of the liberal outrage machine and asked, What is the point of attacking people who are 95 percent on your side?</p>

    Two victories this week for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one seismic, the other minor though not insignificant. First, he won a solid re-election victory that affirmed his dire warning of the peril from a nuclear-armed Iran. Secondly, he persuaded an influential American liberal that his campaign warning that Israel's Arab citizens might swing the election against him was not a despicable, race-baiting tactic as alleged by other liberals. Netanyahu may never learn of this second vote of approval from liberal comedian Bill Maher, but it remains worth savoring for conservatives here in the U.S. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)It was heard on last...
  • Phil Robertson and Bill Maher Should Be Imprisoned for 'Hate Speech,' Human Rights Activist Says

    A human rights activist and writer is dismayed that there are no laws that allow the imprisonment of those who state certain offensive positions, such as Bill Maher and Phil Robertson. If the United States were a "civilized country" like those in Europe, Tanya Cohen wrote for Thought Catalog, then Robertson, a reality show star on A&E's "Duck Dynasty," "would have been taken before a government Human Rights Tribunal or Human Rights Commission and given a fine or prison sentence for the hateful and bigoted comments that he made about LGBT people." Among the types of speech that should be...

    Heck, who cares if the "neighbors" in question have a knife to your throat. Bill Nye, foppish self-proclaimed Science Guy, appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher this past Friday night and demonstrated why he ought to stick with his true vocation as a global-warming bedwetter. During a panel discussion on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's suggestion that European Jews fearful for their lives should come "home" to Israel, Nye mocked the idea and blamed Jews for not being friendlier to predators who consider it a holy rite to slaughter them

    Liberal comedian Bill Maher, a longtime champion of Obamacare, began to change his tune on President Obamas signature legislation Friday night. Obamacare: You know its the signature achievement of obviously this president and like many liberals Ive been screaming how great it has been and its working and theres no doubt, Maher said on his HBO show Real Time. But The New York Times on Sunday did an article that basically said, you know, when Obama said if you like your plan nothing will change well, everything has changed, Maher said. 46 percent of people are having trouble paying...

    Bill Maher ended his show tonight finally talking about Sarah Palins rambling Iowa speech that was the final straw for many Republicans and conservatives. But Maher had just one question for them: What took you so long?! Maher mocked the revelation as an emperor has no clues situation and asked Republicans why they took so long, saying, The rest of us have been watching this dog eat grass for seven years! However, while Maher was glad that many conservatives are finally admitting Palin is a crazy person, he said they should maybe consider what else theyve been wrong about, like...

    Back in 2013, I actually wrote something vaguely nice about HBO’s Bill Maher. Or at least I expressed approval for a point he made about the limits of class-warfare taxation.It’s now time to compensate for that action.Check out this interview. It’s about Obama’s new tax-and-spend budget, but pay particular attention at the 5:15 mark of the video and you’ll hear Maher asserting that “socialism” deserves the credit for the development of a thriving middle class in America. Dan Mitchell Debunks Bill Maher's Historical Illiteracy, Rejects Obama StatismWow. Maher’s comments are astonishingly illiterate.As I remarked in the interview, the United States...

    Believe it or not, God takes sides. He is in no sense passive but throughout the history of man has shown Himself active in peace and in war. Though liberal hypocrites like Michael Moore slander snipers as murderers and invoke the name of Christ in their propaganda, God is, in fact, the author of one shot, one kill. Chris Kyle was no less the instrument of God as the Devil of Ramadi than was an ancient Syrian bowman whose arrow flew by Divine command. (I Kings 21: 29-40) Millenia ago, Ahab, the wicked King of Israel, thought to hide himself...
