The angry liberal Bill Maher — who's just another media personality regularly commenting on Washington politics, as does Rush Limbaugh — is known and even CELEBRATED by his Liberal audience for his vulgar and violent insults against women.
Maher regularly refers to women as boobs, bimbos, cunts, twats and much worse. Indeed, Maher is recognized as, perhaps, the most misogynistic personality in American media. He is famously known for referring to Sarah Palin as a "dumb twat," which brought gales of laughter and applause from his Liberal audience.
In response to the media firestorm surrounding Rush Limbaugh's insulting comments about Democratic activist Sandra Fluke (comments for which Limbaugh apologized), Kirsten Powers writes about the liberal men who have used misogynistic rhetoric without facing the same outrage. Powers notes that "the grand pooh-bah of media misogyny is without a doubt Bill Maher—who also happens to be a favorite of liberals—who has given $1 million to President Obama’s super PAC." She continues:Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.” He said of the former vice-presidential candidate, “She is not a mean girl. She is a crazy girl with mean ideas.” He recently made a joke about Rick Santorum’s wife using a vibrator.
Imagine now the same joke during the 2008 primary with Michelle Obama’s name in it, and tell me that he would still have a job.
Although Congressional Democrats are currently URGING Sandra Fluke to sue Rush Limbaugh for slander and libel, there has never been a Congressional recommendation for Sarah Palin to sue Bill Maher.
Rather, and in spite of Maher's truly offensive language toward women, Barack Obama's re-election campaign has ACCEPTED a MILLION DOLLAR donation from Bill Maher. Apparently, there's no controversy in the Liberal-controlled media AT ALL when one of their OWN misogynists attacks women.
Do you seriously think that Barack Obama is going to wax righteous and REFUSE Maher's donation? Hell no, he won't. Because whatever advances Barack Obama's re-election — be it misogyny, racism, socialism, whatever — is FINE with Obama and with his hypocritical, mean-spirited supporters.
This Liberal hypocrisy reminds me in a profound way of the Liberal ACCEPTANCE of Bill Clinton's abuse of women before and during his presidency in the 1990s.
Oh, the Liberals thought Bill Clinton was WONDERFUL, even though he abused and raped women and referred to his female victims as "trailer trash"... Did the National Organization for Women come to the defense of Paula Jones or Gennifer Flowers or Monica Lewinsky (who represent just a FRACTION of Bill Clinton's adulterous sexual conquests)?
More importantly, did NOW hurry to offer moral support to Clinton's WIFE, Hillary, who looked like a complete and compliant fool?
Hell no, they didn't. The National Organization for Women was TOTALLY silent throughout Bill Clinton's worst sexual scandals. It was a travesty that permanently tarnished NOW's credibility.
But, again, THAT'S how Liberals work in America. Women and churches and moral compasses be DAMNED, as far as Liberals are concerned.
