BIll Maher

Real Time with Bill Maher host Bill Maher is no stranger to controversy. After funneling more than a million dollars to reelect President Obama in the 2012 election and having said some of the more controversial statements of the election season. He is in hot water for calling deceased iconic singer Andy Williams a “Teabag Idiot”.

Maher has always held himself to a different standard than he does those in his industry. He publicly called for Rush Limbaugh’s ouster from the airwaves for referring to 30 year old Sandra Fluke a slut for her testimony concerning birth control on Capital Hill. At the same time he claimed that when he called Sarah Palin a “cu** on his show he said it wasn’t the same thing.

Andy Williams was known at the end of his life as a person who supported the conservative movement and the Tea Party which it spawned bringing down Maher’s wrath.

Here’s the full context, from Maher’s Twitter feed:

In addition to being an outspoken critic of conservatives Maher has also been an outspoken supporter of the atheist movement. Maher created a movie called “Religulous” which went around the world poking fun at different religious beliefs of different people.

Maher also went on a rant during the election questioning Mitt Romney’s fitness for President because of his own religious beliefs (see video below). Maher described Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon religion, as a traveling salesman who if he hadn’t founded the Mormon religion in modern times he would have ben the type of person who sent you spam e-mails trying to sell you Viagra.

    maher is one of the biggest hypocrites in the public forum. he whines about what others say and then proves over and over that he is the foulest mouth, nastiest jerk on television. It takes a lot of class to make nasty jokes about dead people because they don't have the same political views as you. maher acts like a fascist bully.

    If Don Rickles mated with a rabid Weasel, their offspring would be Bill Maher. Atl east Rickles is funny and he is decent guy, Maher is just an arrogant punk who insults dead people and acts like a fascist toward anyone who doesn't support his beliefs.

    Bill Maher has said a lot of crude and tasteless things. A boycott of his show caused ABC to cancel him from commercial broadcasting. And since, Bill Maher has had to regroup on HBO, subscription TV. Now Bill Maher's crude tasteless jokes are mostly between him and his paid audience. Maybe that's one reason why Bill Maher has repeatedly DEFENDED Rush Limbaugh against the boycotts and calls for Rush to be taken off the air! Don't you pay attention to the news? Maybe you're just not very Inquisitive.

    Google "Bill Maher defends Rush Limbaugh" and you will come up with many articles like this one.

    It's never too late to print a correction on the internet.

    Maybe it's time for a boycott to remove Rush Limbaugh's crude and tasteless jokes from commercial broadcasting, and relegate him to the backwaters for some subscription service like Satellite Radio and/or HBO.
