Bill Maher, the man Sarah Palin once compared to a “mosquito,” was in rare form Friday night.
Not only did he smear Christians as people who “love killing,” he called Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann “mentally retarded.”
Newsbusters Noel Sheppard highlighted Maher’s hateful comments in two separate reports Saturday morning.
According to Sheppard, it only took about one minute into his opening monologue before he uttered: “In today’s Republican Party there’s a term for people who hate charity and love killing – Christian.”
In another report, Sheppard wrote:
Showing some uncharacteristic restraint, it only took eight minutes before he went after Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann using Texas’s HPV vaccine issue to call the Minnesota Congresswoman mentally retarded.
Sheppard posted Maher’s alleged joke referencing Michele Bachmann, calling it “the kind of stuff I’d expect from kindergartners”:
And Michele Bachmann is not backing down on this issue. You know, Rick Perry stole her thunder so she’s mad at him. So she said that after the debate where this came up, she had a discussion with a woman who came to her after the debate and said that her daughter had taken the vaccine and become from the vaccine mentally retarded. And Michele Bachmann said, “Mom?”
Maher’s hatred for Christianity and those who follow its precepts – including Bachmann – is well known.
In 2009, A.W.R. Hawkins wrote at Huiman Events:
In the Spring of 2006, when Maher had finally had all he could take of the President George W. Bush’s efforts to do what the Mahers of the world said were attempts to ram Christianity down our throats, he insisted Christianity had “taken over all three branches of government, country music, public schools, [and] the best sellers list.” He also suggested that Christians were “part of a dress-up cult that hates sex and worships magic.”
I know these statements make no sense, but being senseless is apparently part of Maher’s shtick.
Given that context, no one should be surprised that Maher fell for the liberal talking point that everyone at the Tea Party debate cheered death – despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
“Are you watching these debates? I mean, yes, the politicians are bad, but the people who egg them on. There, these crowds cheering for executions, cheering for letting people without health insurance die. In today’s Republican Party there’s a term for people who hate charity and love killing: Christian. These are Christians?”
Sheppard called Maher “another idiot who thinks attendees at Monday’s Republican presidential debate were actually cheering for someone to die.”
Earlier in the week, Sheppard noted that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough accused the Republican debate audience of wanting to see a man without health insurance die.
Sheppard notes that “there wasn’t any applause for letting the man die. There were some cat-calls from the audience saying “Yeah,” but this, too, has been misinterpreted.”
It’s almost like they all get marching orders and talking points from the same person within the White House.
Might her first name be Valerie?
