  • Bill Maher: I Wish Liberals Would Have Same Intolerance For Muslims That They Do For Christians

    RealClearPolitics ^ | January 30, 2016 | unattributed
    On the Friday broadcast of his HBO show Real Time, Bill Maher told liberals see the world the way they want it rather than the way it is when it comes to the threat of Islam and Islamic terror. Maher, a religious critic, told his fellow liberals he wishes they would have the same "intolerance" for Muslim-related terror around the world that they do for Christians and Christian fundamentalists at home. Maher brought up the decision by the Italians to cover up nude statues during a state visit by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. "This is the horribleness of what's going...
  • Rape-Hoaxer Lena Dunham Supports White Bill Clinton, Blasts Black Bill Cosby

    Almost a dozen women have accused Bill Clinton of everything from outright rape to groping to harassment to characters assassination. Nevertheless rape-hoaxer Lena Dunham vigorously supports making Bill Clinton America’s first First Gentleman and making his chief-enabler, Hillary Clinton, the next president of the United States. If Dunahm’s standards on the issue of victimizing women are this low, why then is she publicly calling for Bill Cosby’s head?

    While most of her peers in Hollywood were preparing for the 73rd Golden Globes, Lena Dunham spent the weekend stumping for Hillary Clinton and transforming herself into a walking billboard on the campaign trail in Iowa and New Hampshire. After failing to receive any Golden Globe nominations this year, Dunham was given a consolation gift – a personal ride along and the reins to Clinton’s official Instagram account. The Girls creator, who is one of Clinton’s most passionate supporters, shared images of her weekend with the Democratic presidential frontrunner on Instagram on both Clinton’s account and her own.

    Actress Lena Dunham, who has been aggressively campaigning for Hillary Clinton, privately doubted the Democratic presidential candidate for discrediting women who made sexual assault allegations against her husband, former President Bill Clinton, according to a report Wednesday. Dunham, a fierce advocate for Planned Parenthood and other liberal causes, reportedly made the comments at a dinner party on New York’s Upper East Side months ago. The New York Times reported: She told the guests, at the Park Avenue apartment of Richard Plepler, the chief executive of HBO, that she was disturbed by how, in the 1990s, the Clintons and their allies...

    This month, Lena Dunham, wearing a red, white and blue sweater dress with the word "Hillary" emblazoned across the chest, told voters how Hillary Clinton had overcome sexism in her political career. "The way she has been treated is just more evidence of the fact that our country has so much hatred toward successful women," Ms. Dunham, the creator and star of the HBO series "Girls," said at a Clinton campaign event in Manchester, N.H. But at an Upper East Side dinner party a few months back, Ms. Dunham expressed more conflicted feelings. She told the guests at the Park...

For the past month and change, there's been a void in the political commentary arena--and political incorrectness, in general. Yes, Bill Maher was on vacation. But the acerbic satirist seems recharged and ready to dive headfirst into election season--which he'll do by kicking off the return of his late-night series Real Time with Bill Maher with a big campaign of his own.

    Game of Thrones will change the way sexual violence is depicted on screen following a barrage of complaints about a controversial rape scene last season. Critics and viewers were outraged after Sansa Stark, played by 19-year-old English actress Sophie Turner, was raped by Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) on their wedding night. The scene, which aired in May, was part of a story arc which did not appear in the novels. It was criticized for being gratuitous, played for shock value and serving no narrative purpose. But, speaking at an event at Fox Studios Australia, director Jeremy Podeswa, who directed the...

Here's what you should know. The news that National Geographic has now been placed in the hands of Rupert Murdoch prompted a predictable outcry, roughly akin to what happens in the movies when the clearly evil tycoon takes the orphans away. A bastion of popular science is now controlled by a very prominent climate change denier who, despite his companys assurances of editorial integrity, has spent decades interfering with the independence of his...

    The churning of market forces in television are once again forcing the question of why Americans are spending hundreds of millions of tax dollars a year on public broadcasting. On August 13, HBO announced it was buying all-new episodes of the iconic PBS show "Sesame Street," delaying their debut on PBS for nine months. Decades of liberal mockery of Republicans for wanting to "kill Big Bird" just collapsed in an ugly pile. The show that was supposedly dedicated to poor kids in "underserved" communities was just sold to the highest-bidding paywall in Yuppie Land. Before that they were negotiating with...

The atrocities in the final episode Mothers Mercy, which aired Sunday, will set a high bar for season six, no question.

    Game of Thrones rarely fails to shock, filled as it is with atrocity porn. However, the brutal rape of Sansa Stark at the hands of the psychotic Ramsey Bolton at the end of Sundays episode seems to have crossed the line for many people. It is not like people havent been raped and worse before. Remember the Red Wedding, the beheading of Eddard Stark, and the castration and torture of Theon Greyjoy. But, Sansa is an innocent girl, though she has been getting progressively less nave as the series has proceeded.

TV are teaming to produce a series based on Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" trilogy that will be written and produced by "Interstellar" writer Jonathan Nolan, multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap. Nolan, who is already working with HBO on "Westworld," has been quietly developing the project for the last several months. He recently tipped his hand to Indiewire, which asked him, 'what's the one piece of science fiction you truly love that people don't know enough about?'

    Lena Dunham is reportedly threatening to sue the right-wing website which last week accused her of sexually abusing her little sister Grace when they were children. In the wake of the allegations, the creator and star of HBO's Girls, has cancelled two stops on her book tour scheduled this week in Belgium and Germany for health issues. On Monday, she tweeted that she was 'deeply sorry' to miss the Antwerp Book Fair and a signing in Berlin, adding that she's 'so grateful for your energy and support'.

    Ben Affleck, the Oscar-winning actor and director, has launched a ferocious defence of Islam, after becoming involved in a heated argument when he appeared on an American chat show. Affleck, the star of Good Will Hunting and director of Argo, appeared on HBOs television show Real Time with Bill Maher to promote his latest film, Gone Girl. But instead of talking about the film, the 42-year-old found himself in a furious discussion with both Maher and Sam Harris, the author of a series of books on religion. Maher, an outspoken atheist and critic of Islam, said last week in his...

    There were only a few ways Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) could react to HBOs True Blood portrayal of Texas Republicans being murdered at a fictitious Cruz fundraiser. He could have ignored it, or laughed it off. But he went political. A scene in Sundays episode took place at the George W. Bush Presidential Library, where a Cruz function was being held. The vampires who went made disparaging comments about the Republicans in attendance (What do you expect? Its Hollywood.) and then there was a vicious bloodbath. (We admittedly do not watch True Blood, so we cant offer further context, but...

    Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin rejected overtures from True Blood's producers for a cameo role on the conservative-bashing vampire show. Her instincts proved to be correct after Sunday's HBO episode in which Republican women were once again demeaned when one of the lead characters said in horror, "Oh my God, I'm a Republi-c*nt." Palin told Breitbart News after she heard about the misogynistic episode that she simply wondered, "'True Blood' or true gall?" "The brilliant minds of 'True Blood' were brazen enough to ask me to do a cameo on their show, apparently so they could insult a conservative woman...

    Between Rick Perry, Ted Cruz and Wendy Davis, Texas politicians in recent years have lived up to their state's reputation for producing larger-than-life characters. That makes the Texas political scene a natural for the Hollywood treatment. HBO has given God Save Texas, a drama about the state's often raucous political culture, the green light for development. It's set to unfold at the Texas statehouse, a perennial flashpoint for national debates about issues ranging from abortion to gun rights to the size and role of government. According to an early description first reported by Deadline.com, the show will follow an "idealistic...

    Liberal comedian Bill Maher has some remorse for one of his former punchlinesMonica Lewinskyafter reading her essay in Vanity Fair. I was moved by it. I gotta tell you, I literally felt guilty, Maher said Friday on HBOs Real Time with Bill Maher. Maher said he was moved after reading what Lewinsky described in the pages of the magazine as a time in which she was suicidal. I remember doing a million Monica Lewinsky blow job jokes, and I kinda feel bad, the late-night host said. Maher said he understands why Lewinsky is coming out now after ten years of...

    <p>If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished.</p> <p>The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives.</p>

    A prince strips a posing group of prostitutes naked one by one as he selects a companion for the night. It sounds like a scene from a porn film, but this was the latest episode of the epic fantasy drama Game of Thrones, based on the novels of George R R Martin. The start of the gory series fourth season on Monday even managed to shock its own fans. ..................................................... Campaigners warned it could lead to young people being desensitised to content once considered shocking and being influenced by the behaviour they displayed. Miranda Suit, of Safermedia, said: What are...

    Deadline Hollywood puts the best spin they can on the disastrous season finale ratings for HBO's impossibly low-rated series "Girls." Deadline calls the a dismal 670,000 viewers "steady." Yeah, "steady" in the same way the Titanic steadily sank. After three airings Sunday night, "Girls" averaged only a million viewers. If you are looking for a reference point, the season finale of "True Detective" averaged 11 million viewers. Not beholden to ratings, and obviously eager to not the pop the bubble of a small group of elite urban provincials who have spent three years trying to convince themselves "Girls" is not...

    Maher began the monologue by declaring that America is stupid because 60 percent of the country reportedly believes the tale of Noahs ark is literally true. He went on to slam the film Noah as floating giraffe cr**, but said it must be doing something right since its been condemned by both Muslims and Christians. And the fact that it might lose a lot of studio money, he joked, may put it in hot water with the Jews too.
