Top Obama Donor Bill Maher: GOP Is Party of the Apes

Top Obama donor, misogynist and Christian-hater Bill Maher accused Republicans of being the “Party of the Apes” today on his blog.
This is the same guy who called Sarah Palin a “dumb [email protected]” for laughs.

Politico reported:

Bill Maher on Monday called the GOP the “Party of the Apes” and ripped Republicans for not repudiating Rep. Allen West — who, the comedian suggested, should be taken to a mental hospital.

“[T]he idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horsesh*t and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it. Or as I like to call it, ‘The Rise of the Party of the Apes,’” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” wrote on his blog.

Maher singled out two politicians as extremists: West and Richard Mourdock, the Republican nominee for Senate who defeated longtime Sen. Dick Lugar in a primary last month.

“[T]ake Allen West. Seriously, take him to the padded cell and give him 20 CCs of the high test,” Maher wrote, noting West’s remark that some 80 House Democrats are Communists. “And not one Republican said, ‘Allen, come on. You’re making us look dumb.’ Not one of the Republican candidates for president said anything. Because in today’s Republican Party, that’s not even edgy anymore. They probably saw him later on and were like, ‘Word, Allen. Word.’ Because that’s how they think black people talk.”

    From an outside point of view.Bill Maher, what he thinks, what he says, what he does, is not news.Its simply glamorizing a complete non factor and idiot.

    This will be the last time that I respond to a Bill Maher news story and NO, I didn’t read it.

    Did he just associate Allen West with an ape? Think anyone will call him out on being a racist??

  • mcc

    Sorry, Bill — even this man is more interesting than you:

    Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York has remained coy about whether he plans to endorse a presidential candidate this year, even as Mitt Romney and President Obama aggressively court the billionaire media mogul.

    The most that the mayor and his aides have said is that Mr. Bloomberg, who did not endorse in 2008, is carefully weighing his options this time around.

    But during casual conversations at charity event a few days ago, Mr. Bloomberg was far chattier — and candid — about the subject, according to three people who overheard him.

    Mr. Bloomberg said that he believed Mr. Romney would probably be better at running the country than Mr. Obama, according to two guests.

    But Mr. Bloomberg said he could not support Mr. Romney because he disagreed with him on so many social issues, these two people said. The mayor mentioned two such issues: abortion rights and gun control.

    As a result, Mr. Bloomberg said, he intended to remain neutral, said one guest.

    Here is a suggestion for big mouthed Bill Maher:

    Dear Mr. Maher,

    Put your money where your mouth is. Lock yourself in a MP guarded room with Alan West and let the best man come out.

    P.S. Be sure the premiums on your tony health care insurace policy are paid up prior to taking your issues up with Col. West on a personal level. You’re going to need the services that policy covers.

    Has he converted to Islam? He sounds just like the racist muslims.

    Mahar is a waste of air. Time and the ego on this guy. He has to be in the public eye every day, now.

  • dwd

    And if Glenn Beck had said “Democrats are the Party of the Apes, take Barack Obama…” how would the left be reacting?

    Maher can get away with that remark because the blacks are with the party of the parasites.

    Jim, please. I’m begging you. Three month moratorium on this waste of space. Give it a go – see if it makes a difference in your hit count.

    I know, I know, get my own blog … it just seems to me that ignoring him (which I do when he’s posted here) “collectively” is what he deserves.

    ““[T]he idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horsesh*t and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it.”

    Well, I gotta admit, Maher nailed that one.

    He is absitively posilutely 100% correct.

    The blame behind the increasing dysfunction of America is NOT equally shared.

    The democrats own the clear majority of it.

    And Maher seems quite smug about his part in that dysfunction.

    Go Yankees.

  • valerie

    ummm, isn’t that what Muslims call Jews?

    and aren’t a bunch of Democrats actually members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus,

    which works with is the Democratic Socialists of America?

    The members of the DSA take great umbrage at being called communists, because communism failed. They claim that they are far better, aiming for socialism, which they freely admit has never been implemented successfully.

    These are the same people who prefer to waste time pretending that we should call illegal aliens (a term defined in legislation) “undocumented immigrants” — not for the purpose of determining policy, but just to avoid any productive discussion.

    After a review of the source documents from the DSA, it appears to me that Allen West has a solid basis for his opinion, because there are a lot of Democrats in the Congressional Progressive Caucus, and the DSA claims them.

    I find Maher’s diatribes almost as repulsive to watch as Dear Leader Obama’s.

    Yes, he did. And, no, they didn’t. Libtards get a pass on their racism.

    nice post..

    and a way back flashback..

    [It would, indeed, hardly have been possible for the Nationalists to advance fundamental objections to the economic policy of the other socialist parties when their own published programme differed from these only in that its socialism was much cruder and less rational. The famous 25 points drawn up by Herr Feder, one of Hitler’s early allies, repeatedly endorsed by Hitler and recognized by the by-laws of the National-Socialist party as the immutable basis of all its actions, which together with an extensive commentary is circulating throughout Germany in many hundreds of thousands of copies, is full of ideas resembling those of the early socialists.

    But the dominant feature is a fierce hatred of anything capitalistic-individualistic profit seeking, large scale enterprise, banks, joint-stock companies, department stores, “international finance and loan capital,” the system of “interest slavery” in general; the abolition of these is described as the “basis of the programme, around which everything else turns.” It was to this programme that the masses of the German people, who were already completely under the influence of collectivist ideas, responded so enthusiastically.]

    So Maher calls Col West an ape. How nice! I expect that the revs Sharpton and Jackson will be at the podium soon. Col West is a man of honor, something that this little turd knows little about. Besides the Congress probably really is infested with Commies so where’s the beef?

  • Warthog

    Come election night, I will drink his bitter, bitter tears of defeat with sweet savor.

  • Monkey Wrench

    I just read his entire blog post and it was actually kind of funny. Some comedians say outrageous things. I know libs are always getting bent out of shape by the stuff Greg Gutfeld says. And what about all the crazy comments from Ted Nuggent? Everyone needs to just chill out and enjoy. These folks are entertainers.

  • Lincoln was called an ape in his time by detractors. Maher says the GOP is a party of apes, I hear the GOP is the party of Lincoln.

  • Winston Wolfe

    I don’t click on the videos. I don’t read the transcripts.

    I’m only writing this in the hopes you get it through your head, Jim Hoft, STOP GIVING THIS DOUCHE THE ATTENTION!

    Seriously. Stop wasting bandwidth on this clown.



  • dwillmore

    Better an ape than a Bill Maher. I was going to call him a weasel, but why insult rodents.

  • Jason

    Reality has shifted. The Republican party is demonstrably insane but they have given the media and most of the morons in this country Stockholm Syndrome. They have the potential to be an evil that could lay waste to the globe. Any group so capable of getting people to believe things that aren’t true scares the hell out of me. God’s mercy on you swine.

  • coolidgerules

    Their campaign blows, their policies blow, and the eceomy blows. Most everyone knows this by now. These asshats are looking for a violent reaction to kickstart their crackdown. That is what they have left. Every week, the delusion seems to get a little more, doesn’t it? It’s only June. just wait for October.

  • KR

    Considering he habitually throws his sh*t at others, I’d say he’s the ape.

    Apes? Maher’s not even that far up the evolutionary ladder.

  • donh

    Bill Maher worships death and we are witnessing some bizarre form of social suicide.

  • Voice of Reason

    I don’t know why conservative blogs or news outlets even report about Bill Maher. His baloney is not relevant other than to provoke. He is an immature annoying smug progressive who’s audience of just like him. It is not a sophisticated crowd. He has a mental disorder……it’s called liberalism. What is troubling is HBO has given this deranged unfunny man a show to spew his leftist hate.

  • noway

    lol maher sounds more and more desperate to get attention. ignoring him and let him slither off to nuttywood works for me.

  • rich

    maher is obamas personal little bitch lmao

  • I would pony up lots of cash to watch Allen West slap the sh*t out of Bill, the Punk, Maher.

  • stonedome

    bill markowitz, please note that this is his real name, so kindly make all references going forward mentioning this name. he doesn’t deserve a pass on anything he does, so let’s start with his first lie.

  • stonedome

    he donated to the top ape of his favorite party, so what is he talking about?

  • Rob

    Just your typical useful idiot who’s future will be a bullet to the temple. He’s pretty devoted too so you’d have to think he’d be near the top of the list.


    such an irrelevant twirp (but a legend in his own pea brain), which is the funniest thing about him.

  • BurmaShave

    “Apes”? Really? Are they something like macaques?

    Do I detect a whiff of racism here?

  • Lefty

    Bill Maher: He’s intelligent, informed and quite frankly…funny as all-get-out.

  • If I call Bill Maher a tampon or a douchebag, then does that mean I’m a misogynist? Just wanted to clarify that as it is getting harder for me to hold in my contempt of Mr. Maher.

  • Dave Veilleux

    How can any media outlet keep this guy on the air. I mean HBo must agree with this racist and what he says and calls names to varies people. He is a racist against women and blacks. I canceled HBO a long time ago because of this guy and I am glad i did.
