MSNBC Host Blames Limbaugh, Gingrich, Santorum For Trayvon Martin Death

Karen Finney, filling in for Martin Bashir, flat-out blamed the words of Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum for creating the environment that lead to the horrible shooting death of teen Trayvon Martin in Florida.

Bill Maher defends Rush Limbaugh on Twitter – Fears a new witch hunt directed at him?

March 7, 2012 by  
Filed under Media


Despite Limbaugh’s apology, the left continues to attack Limbaugh and drive away sponsors of his show with such intensities to invoke the public’s suspicion.

If it really was all about obtaining an apology, apology given, so why the continued drama? Because maybe it’s not about an apology, it’s about driving Limbaugh off the air. Maher’s defense of Limbaugh is recognition of this: He himself has uttered some incredible four-letter descriptions of Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann. His defense is that he’s an entertainer. And? Ridicule is the best weapon; comedy is deadlier than dry-fisking policy.

Perhaps Maher senses something is in the water brought on by this manufactured narrative. He himself has been guilty of the very thing for which Limbaugh is being crucified. If Limbaugh can be gotten, everyone can be gotten. The reigns of power can change hand and the weapons once used against your opponents can be used against you.

Maher may be a progressive but he’s not stupid. He senses what progressives haven’t yet admitted to themselves: the winds are changing direction. Americans have begun casting their first votes against Barack Obama via primaries and caucuses around the country. The will to change government is palpable and with it, the tools progressives created to persecute those whom they oppose politically will fall into conservatives’s hands. Perhaps Maher is hoping to create a trend of judiciousness.



Will Obama Super PAC Return Misogynist Bill Maher’s Million-Dollar Donation?

March 6, 2012 by

Rush bad…. Maher Goooood? Divide and Rule working overtime.


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. Maher said of a woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don’t show me your tits!” as though a woman feeding her child is trying to flash Maher. (Here’s a way to solve his problem: don’t stare at a strangers’ breasts). Then, his coup de grâce: “And by the way, there is a place where breasts and food do go together. It’s called Hooters!”

Former White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, the man who runs Obama’s super PAC, did not reply when asked if he will be returning Maher’s $1 million donation.
