Bill Maher’s Toilet Mouth Exempt from Obama & Democrats’ Standard of Decency

When Rush Limbaugh exercised his 1st amendment right to free speech and criticized Sandra Fluke for whining about paying for her birth control pills, Democrats and the liberal mainstream media pounced. Granted Rush used some harsh words to describe Fluke, but that was his first amendment right. What’s despicable is the hypocrisy exhibited by Democrats and President Obama who don’t apply this same standard of decency to left wing comedian Bill Maher, who on a daily basis says things more offensive than Rush ever has.

Could it be because Bill Maher is a huge supporter of Democrats and just gave $1 million to Obama’s Super PAC Priorities USA? Maher repeatedly utters vile, disgusting things which go well beyond the point of decency and all we hear is crickets from Democrats and the liberal news media. Maher mocked Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who prays before games with the following tweet on December 24, 2011 “Wow, Jesus just f**ked #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler “Hey, Buffalo’s killing them.”

There were no calls for Maher to be suspended from HBO and President Obama didn’t feel compelled to phone Tebow to comfort him after Maher assaulted his religion. Obama could have used that as a teachable moment to stand up for Christianity and freedom of religion.

Of course, there’s Maher’s vile comments about Bristol Palin in 2011, when he said:

“In Bristol’s new memoir Not Afraid of Life – working title, “Whoops, There’s a D*&+ in Me” – Bristol claims that the night she lost her virginity she had accidentally gotten drunk on wine coolers that she didn’t know contained alcohol and then blacked out and didn’t remember a thing. Oh, the Palins. I tell you, the shit doesn’t fall far from the bat.”

Maher has also mocked Sarah Palin relentlessly and repeatedly called her a “dumb twat”   and a “cunt.”  During his March 2nd broadcast, Rush said if Obama really practiced  what he preached, that is being the decency police, he would demand his Super PAC return the $1million Maher donated. Later that evening on his show, Maher responded and said he can say whatever he wants because unlike Rush’s radio show, “I don’t have sponsors. I’m on HBO.” But as News Busters pointed out, millions of HBO subscriptions like me pay Maher’s salary so it is the same standard of decency should be applied to his toilet mouth.

Rush commented: “Bill Maher and some of his comments make me look like Romper Room, a choir boy. So will Obama be giving back Bill Maher’s money?”

Unless I missed it, Obama didn’t express outrage over Maher’s insults against Bristol or Sarah Palin. Furthermore, he’s refused to respond to a letter from Concerned Women of America demanding Obama  tell his Super PAC to return Maher’s “filthy” money. White House Spokesperson Jay Carney explained to USA Today, “As for Maher’s PAC contribution, White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama has nothing to do with Priorities USA, and can’t legally tell it what to do.” But White House staffer and campaign officials will headline Priorities USA fundraising events, yet Obama has no influence over the PAC? The take away: it’s okay to vilify and degrade Republicans but don’t you dare do it to Democrats.

In President Obama’s March 6th press conference , where he tried to upstage GOP Super Tuesday contests, Obama said the reason he called Sandra Fluke “is because I thought about Malia and Sasha, and one of the things I want them to do as they get older is to engage in issues they care about . . . I want them to be able to speak their mind in a civil and thoughtful way.  And I don’t want them attacked or called horrible names because they’re being good citizens.”

Obama added: “We want to send a message to all our young people that being part of a democracy involves argument and disagreements and debate, and we want you to be engaged, and there’s a way to do it that doesn’t involve you being demeaned and insulted, particularly when you’re a private citizen.”

It seems Obama wants to teach his daughters the political double standard of decency—that it’s okay for conservative women and Christians “to be demeaned and insulted” but not their liberal peers.  Bill Maher is an odious pig with whom Obama doesn’t seem to have a problem being associated. Now, that’s a teachable moment for the history books.

    You’re an idiot. All I ever hear is the same bs from you. This is my first and only visit to this waste of pixels. Go study some politics, current events, etc, maybe you’ll have some idea of what’s going on. It’s perfect that you’re a Gingrich delegate, perfect example of what a waste of space you are.

  2. Matt says:

    There is a big difference between Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh. Maher is funny and usually telling the truth, Limbaugh isn’t funny at all, and is almost always blatantly distorting the facts. How could any conservative support a man that goes to Costa Rica (a place well known for prostitution and child trafficking) with a bottle full of viagra? Now that’s hypocrisy..

  3. Doug Reed says:

    As much as I hate to admit it, as a Bill Maher fan and a Limbaugh loather, you raise a very valid point. There’s a certain amount of hypocrisy at play here (especially when he brings Malia and Sasha into it).

    I’m not sure I would agree that asking Obama’s PAC to return the money is directly analogous to pressuring Rush’s sponsors to drop the show. (The analogy would be if Rush gave to a candidate, and liberals were asking that candidate to give the money back.)

    But the deeper message of your post – that if one side tolerates vile language from one of its own personalities, they shouldn’t get upset if it comes from the other side – is a good one. Thank you.

  4. Pam says:

    Unfortunately, the hypocrisy of the left does not begin and end with the vile language of Bill Maher.

  5. Ernie says:

    A valid argument that’s shared by much of the country Crystal. Of course, a liberal-peronal-attacking-name-caller has to chime in and show their true colors.

  6. Leon says:

    Conservatives whine and cry “double standard” whenever one of their sexist, racist blowhards like Rush get skewed in the media. Meanwhile, the President and his family are repeatedly called monkeys, terrorists and apes in emails by White GOPers. Is that the Christian way?

  7. Paul says:

    Bill Maher has a foul, nasty mouth and calls it humor. Rush Limbaugh goes way over the line too. However, neither one of them has a monopoly on the truth. They certainly do not speak for me. Maher has called Sarah Palin as bad, or worse things than Limbaugh did with regard to Ms Fluke. There is a double standard when it comes to the media criticizing there two . Maher gets a pass – not so Limbaugh.

    Isn’t Bill Maher a Comedian?

  9. crystal wrong says:

    Dear miss wrong…. Your quite the hypocrite calling out bill maher, every time your head pops up on CNN all you do is spew polarizing condescending shite talk…. Why are you so dam bitter? You sound like such a f’ing know it all, it makes me want to vomit! and im a righty! You and your rhetoric ie hate speech symbolize everything that is wrong with the conservative movement right now… you sound like your jealous of the left, quoting ridiculous slanted poles, screaming at the camera and that ridiculous condescending smirk that lurks on your face. Give it a f’ing rest!!!

  10. crystal meth says:

    your trying too hard to be anne coulter… she sucks, and so do you.

  11. cheryl s. says:

    You can judge Obama by the company he keeps and, in Maher’s case, by the people whose behavior he chooses to excuse or ignore.

  12. Reallyblack says:

    Why does the name Obama tickles you so bad? You try so desperately to connect everybad dot to name Obama anytime you disagree with anyone democrat. Is it that to satisfy your white masters you have to be this vile to bring down a successful blackman?

  13. Phyllis says:

    Not sure what to respond to here. The HATE toward Crystal’s too truthful article or the disgusting, hate filled comments from the fowl mouth liberal posts.

    Thanks Crystal. You speak for all women, or at least the ones who haven’t bought into this bilge from the lefts mysonginist men.

  14. Paul Altenburg says:

    Dear Ms. Wright,

    Wow! Although not surprising, the vitriol of some of these responses is staggering. Once again, rather than the substance, or the lack of it, in Ms. Fluke plaintive wailing, the left takes issue with Mr. Limbaugh’s response to those wailings. Clearly, any woman has the right and the opportunity to obtain birth control medications, but there is no implicit right to be provided such at the expense of anyone other than the user. As to Mr. Limbaugh’s particular tirade, I would guess that when birth control is offered free of charge to all comers, married or otherwise, it would seem that the government wishes to promote promiscuity and to subsidize orgasms. This hardly seems to be a proper concern of government, unless you see the purpose of government as do liberals. Consider these scenarios: your 13-year-old daughter wants to be popular, so she has intercourse with every boy in her class. Thanks to the ready availability of contraceptives, issued to her under a cloak of governmentally-protected secrecy, she can become the most popular girl in the school for 3 minutes at a time.
    If your husband or wife wants to have an affair but not to risk pregnancy, the pills can be obtained without showing up as a drain on the household budget. Of course, when the genital warts appear, it really won’t matter anymore. After all, promiscuity has its risks.
    Of course the un-funny “comedian”, Mr. Maher, would never countenance such considerations, for fear of committing apostasy against the religion of which he is a High Priest. I speak, of course, of liberalism.

    Congrats, this article is dead on the money. I USED to like Bill Maher before he outed himself as an uber liberal and got his HBO gig. Now he is an odious pig who makes ANY Republican mouthpiece a pillar of decorum. Maher, Jon Stewart, smarmy Alec Baldwin and the rest of the ultra liberal Hollywood set all make me sick.

  16. Temp says:

    I’m addressing the commenters who have insulted Ms. Crystal. You all are so angry that she’s defending Rush and telling how Obama and his posse have completely ignored the wrongs on their own side while expressing your hatred and venom on this woman makes you no better than Rush or Maher. I challenge you all to really look at your own hate speech and see if you’d say those same things to Sandra Fluke or Michelle Obama. If you can’t say it to someone on your side you shouldn’t say it to another.

  17. thomas thorne says:

    Ok, both are entertainers…lets start there. They are not political pundits but there topics are political in nature. Neither party endorses any of them, the double standard some speak of as far as left and right. Both entertainers have huge followers and bring in large cash for their networks…..that’s where you start to hit. Rush and Bill are gonna continue their ranting as long as the platform allows them. They both can be crude in their language and some things do cross the lines of entertainment, but as far as politics are concerned…..they are not politicians and should not be treated as such.

  18. lilly says:

    You are so full of hate. You are a disgrace to women and the black race in general. You are part of the problem. If you are going to represent the republican party at least do it in a respectful and honest way. You show no respect for the President of the United States. After watching you over the last 6 months on CNN, I see that you have no interest in the black community or middle class Americans in general (black or white). You are repulsive and you need to get a life. Whatever internal rage you are suffering from, I hope you get some help for whatever it is that is causing you to be such a bitch.

    Amazing how slanted you conservatives are to the right, if you would just pretend to give a fuck ya know? I think you all want everyone either incredibly wealthy or incredibly impoverished. Either a bootlicker or bootowner, no inbetween, one or the other. And how you say Rush has that right, and oh.. he just said a few little teeny sorta terrible words about Fluke. Well sista girl, it is stunning to me that you can be both black and a woman and then carry water for these pandering two-faced fucktards who would not even wipe their boots on your black ass. Not unless you were on an auction block and they just stepped in a nigger bucks shit, and said “I think that nigger sow looks strong, but I wanna see it’s teeth first.” So you keep feelin’ bad for some cunt like Ann Romney, with her 5 latchkey kids, her 10 hour a day waitress job that pays her $2 an hour and all her “hard work”, when they got us all wage slaves and have erradicated democracy, it won’t matter if yer skin is black or white, the wealthy gonna call us all nigger then. Hey you! Who, me? Then is when you are gonna find out what hard work really is. Don’t you forget it.

    I feel so sorry for Americans now. Your country has slowly gone insane.

    The comedy is basically cruel and sarcastic and focuses on only two subjects; Christianity and sex, to the exclusion of all other ‘sensitive or politically correct’ subjects.

    Our liberal comics and comedians would never even dare make such ad hominem remarks publicly, they would be called out and berated for it. Of course our conservative commentators would never attack anyone other than with a good argument.

    Why the anger and cruelty? Do you not worry about what your children see? It’s really just an example of bullying.

    Oh and bodily functions, that’s another favourite of Americans and kindergarteners.
