Far left crank Jon Stewart was the latest leftist to defend Bill Maher over his “tw*t” and “c*nt” attacks on conservative women.
Video from The Daily Show:
While noting that the right had given an homage to Limbaugh on the House floor shortly after 9/11, he noted the worst Maher had used for Republican women– words with Cs and Ts in them. He agreed that they were offensive, but joked to Fox News commentators bringing them up: “let’s get back to what really matters in America: whether Obama is a Sunni or a Shi’ite.” He then played a montage of Fox News commentators complaining that comedians hide under their “clown noses” and “helmets” and are immune to criticism. That, Stewart attested, was just false. “When you’re doing it in a club, there are repercussions– ask Michael Richards and Tracy Morgan. When you do it on television, there are repercussions– ask me,” he argued, playing a clip of Fox News calling him racist.
But it wasn’t just Fox News, he explained, it was the hate mail, “envelopes, some of them handwritten, some of them with white powder.” He remarked that “when I got into comedy, I didn’t think the white powder I’d be getting was anthrax,” and warned the audience to please not snort anthrax. A fairly argumentative rather than joke-filled anti-Fox segment on the Daily Show wouldn’t be complete without some profanity, however, so Stewart concluded: “Fox: shut the fuck up about how victimized you and you alone are. Nobody cares.”
Reader Barry P. added this on Jon Stewart’s latest rant against FOX News.
Jon Stewart never mentions, of course, that Bill Maher is actively
campaigning for Democrats and that Maher gave Obama one million dollars. As for repercussions for calling Sarah Palin a “c-nt” and a “tw-t,” has Maher suffered any from the left at all? Ever? Has any Democrat or anyone on Obama’s team ever denounced Bill Maher or returned his money?
Rush Limbaugh formally apologized for using a sexual joke.
Limbaugh didn’t apologize, nor does he have to, about Miss Fluke’s
untruthful testimony and arrogance in demanding free stuff.
Has Maher ever apologized?
No, Maher has never apologized – because he’s a far left “comedian.” The double standard is sickening.
