Bill Maher On Leno: Go To Rhetoric For Right Wing Is "Wouldn't It Be Fun To Kill The People We Disagree With"

Sometimes I wonder why I bother listening to Bill Maher. I guess I must be a masochist.

Earlier this week, Bill Maher appeared on the Tonight Show and, like every other liberal in the media, blamed conservatives and gun nuts for the Tucson shooting (even though authorities admit that there is no evidence that violent rhetoric had anything to do with it).

Warning: Those with physical and mental complications are advised not to watch the following video or read the following transcript. May induce bouts of anger and insanity to the point of a heart attack or stroke—unless you’re far-left, in which case it will have no effect on you whatsoever.

Leno: Let me ask you about this, uh…your take on this tragedy in Arizona, this gunman shooting. I mean, you always have an interesting perspective on these things.
I agree with Leno: Bill Maher does have an interesting perspective—interesting in that it is far removed from reality!
Maher: Well, I mean, first of all, you know, we’re going to have to hear from the NRA a lot about how this shouldn’t stop anything that they want to do. First of all, the NRA should just change their name to the “Assassin’s Lobby.” Because that’s what they are. Yeah, you can applaud that. Somebody should applaud that.
Way to joke about the organization protecting our second amendment rights. No, obviously we should leave that to the ACLU, which couldn’t care less about gun rights. (“The right of the people to bear arms”? What’s that?!)

And you have to love how everything Maher says—whether it’s on his show or elsewhere—is followed by mindless applause. It’s like that one episode of American Dad, where a retired football player explains how a drunken crowd will applaud anything. (“I made a beer fart!” Wild applause.)
Maher: I’m—I’m—I’m so tired of hearing about the Second Amendment and the Constitution. If you love guns, just admit it like a—it’s a vice. It’s like alcohol, or drugs, or sex addiction, or gambling. It’s just a vice. It’s something you like. It’s not good for you or anybody else. You just like it. But stop the bull**** about the Second Amendment and the Constitution because nobody needs—nobody needs a gun that fires 31 rounds.
Funny how Maher mentioned guns along with alcohol and drugs. First of all, Maher—being a stoner himself—advocates legalizing marijuana and other drugs. You have to love the cognitive dissonance of moonbats like Maher who want to legalize pot but ban guns. Because as I mentioned in a former demotivational poster, prohibition didn’t work for booze, it doesn’t work for drugs, and it won’t work for guns. The government making anything illegal does not prevent it from being available, it only pushes it into the black market to be distributed and bought by criminals.

And once again, you have to love how the audience will applaud anything. (“I made a beer fart!” Wild applause.)
Maher: There’s a much bigger issue which is the psychology of this country which loves guns. It’s just a very armed country with a lot of crazy people which is not a great combination. And—and somebody also should tell all these people, these NRA types who think it’s great to be armed everywhere, Arizona has one of the loosest gun rules in the country. You can, I think, carry any weapon concealed without a permit. They want every drunk in a bar to be armed in case a fight breaks out.
Somebody should tell Maher that gun control doesn’t prevent gun violence; in fact, the cities with the strictest gun laws (Washington D.C., Chicago, London, etc) statistically have the highest homicide rates. But then again, facts are subjective to moonbats like Maher.

And it only gets worse as Maher moves from gun rights to “violent conservative rhetoric."
Maher: The right wing loves—the, the go to rhetoric for them is “wouldn't it be fun to kill the people we disagree with." You know, they try to put across this false equivalency…
And you have to love this part where the audience openly disagrees with Maher—for once, and only once! To which Maher replies thusly:
Maher: No? Really? Then do you read? Have you seen what people have said? Have you seen what Sarah Palin says? You know, she talks about “Don’t retreat, reload!” She says it like a pull-toy that’s broken. Every five minutes she says this. Uh, Michelle Bachmann says she wants Minnesotans armed and dangerous. Alan West, a new congressman says he wants his opponent to be afraid to leave his house. Left-wingers don’t talk that way.
Ha ha ha! Ho ho ho! Oh, wait, you mean that wasn’t a joke? He seriously thinks that left-wingers don’t use violent rhetoric? Well I guess he never heard Mike Malloy gloat about how he wants Glenn Beck to commit suicide, or how Ed Shultz wants to rip out Dick Cheney’s heart and use it as a football, or how Bill Maher himself wanted Democrats to treat Republicans the same way Tiger Woods treated his mistress (“Shut the f*** up, while I slap your face for making noise!”).

(And Newsbusters lists other instances of violent rhetoric made by Maher and the guests on his show.)

And by the way, Bill, when Bachmann said she wanted Minnesotans “armed and dangerous,” she was implying that it was against an energy tax, not an actual political opponent or party.

And here’s his twisted reasoning behind why left-wingers are free to use violent rhetoric:
Maher: And also, left-wingers, even if they do sometimes make a gun analogy or something, they’re audience isn’t hysterical. They’re already talking, the right-wingers, to people who are hysterical and are irrational and are highly armed to begin with.
Oh, yes. Because the left-wing is composed of rational, sane individuals like Bill Ayers, Code Pink, Bash Back!, La Raza, the ELF, the ALF, the G20 Summit protestors, and PETA (speaking of which, Maher is a board member of PETA, which is infamous for funding eco-terrorists like Rodney Coronado).

Oh, and here’s an interesting tidbit: Westboro Baptist Church is run by Democrats!
Maher: Newt Gingrich, and by the way, among the right-wing douchebags I hate—I hate him the mostest, uh, because, he, and, I mean he says things, he said the Obama administration is as much a threat to us as were the Nazis and the Soviet Union. Now, it’s not just ridiculous, but when you, when you characterize the opposition—the political opposition—as not just the opposition, but the enemy, the Soviet Union and the Nazis were our enemies, of course you’re going to have borderline people who go and take this over the line.
If Maher is going to bring up politicians charactering the opposition as the enemy, what about the countless moonbats who characterized Bush as Hitler, or as a Nazi or fascist or war criminal? What about Jesse Jackson who compared conservatism in America to nazism and Apartheid? What about Senator Alan Grayson who called Fox News and the Republicans “the enemy of America”?

Once again, Maher makes an excuse for the left:
Maher: So, so stop telling me that the left and the right are both crazy. Yes, there are crazies on the left, but they are not the same, they’re not gun crazy, they’re not violent crazy. Who goes to gun shows? Who is for the War in Iraq? Who’s part of militias? You know, you know when you hear the phrase “armed compound in a secluded rural area,” what is that, a bunch of Democrats? Is that Dennis Kucinich out there?
The left isn’t gun crazy or violent crazy? Um, I don’t think so Bill!

I would like to remind Maher that the two assassination attempts in the last century were carried out by far-left moonbats. Kennedy was assassinated by a Communist, and I’m pretty sure Reagan wasn’t nearly shot by a die-hard Republican.

Also, the domestic terrorist attacks during Obama’s presidency were also carried out by moonbats. The pentagon shooter (whom, as Bill Maher suggested, should have shot Glenn Beck—talk about irony!) was a pothead Bush-hating 9/11 truther, and the man who crashed a plane into a Texas IRS building hated capitalism (“From each according to his gullibility, to each according to his greed.”).

And let’s not forget the Tucson shooter: how many Tea Party protesters are stoner atheists who are fans of the Communist Manifesto?

(Once again, Newsbusters lists instances of left-wing violence.)

Now, I’m sure most of you—if you haven’t already vomited on your keyboard or fainted in sheer disbelief—have your heads spinning over Maher’s vitriol. Well, to cure this, I am providing a selection from satellite radio hosts Opie And Anthony who completely destroyed Maher and his moon-battery.
