“Maher mocks WWII vets visiting closed memorial: ‘Nobody said they were the brightest generation’”
From the Daily Caller:
Liberal comedian Bill Maher
– wait! Stop right there. In fairness, Maher identifies as a libertarian. It’s just that he’s the kind who believes in a powerful central government, socialized health care, a State-run, command-and-control economy, and the removal of free speech, freedom of conscience, or free association rights of those groups whose messages he doesn’t approve. Which fuels the confusion.
Now that we’ve got that cleared up, digression over:
ridiculed the group of World War II veterans for visiting the barricaded World War II memorial, telling his audience that the Greatest Generation wasn’t the “brightest generation.”
“The other that was apparently so important for the Republicans to keep open was the World War II Memorial in Washington. That was closed, so a bunch of the World War II vets knocked down the barriers and stormed it,” Maher said on his Friday HBO “Real Time” program, making a sardonic face at the audience.
“And then I love this — they posed for pictures with Michele Bachmann, who showed up. Michele Bachmann — one of the people most responsible for shutting the fucking thing down. They’re the greatest generation. Nobody said they were the brightest generation,” he said.
Yes. Michele Bachmann is one of the individuals responsible for shutting down an open air memorial by directing the NPS to barricade it. Not only that, but her ransom demands — that everyone receive the same one-year “waiver” that Obama has handed out to interest groups and cronies; and that Congress be required to live under the same law it demands we live under — mark her as the kind of noxious and presumptuous twat that Maher so profoundly hates. Because as a “libertarian,” to Maher such demands as those being made by the Republicans — as well as the move to beat back these never ending CRs that are the result of years of Democrat Party refusal to pass a budget — are clearly worthy of scorn.
After all, what good libertarian isn’t all for crony capitalism, special waivers, a fascist methodology to insure a Marxist system take root, and the perpetual denigration of opinionated women who attempt to aid WWII vets and who are fighting for the survival of the Constitution — the very thing that provides us a stable rule of law and protects individual liberty that, under the Founders’ and Framers’ theory of government (which was a truly radical movement at the time, something lost on the contemporary radical chic statists who are literally trying to make subjugation hip), cannot be undone by man. Or The Man.
Whom Maher has decided to provide cover for.
Maher is a crude puppet of the political mainstream. Nothing more.
And as an aside, I’ll note this, which I posted previously to Twitter, and with the caveat that I can’t confirm its veracity: still, rumor has it that the (poorly) aging Maher has taken to eating nothing but veal. Because it’s the only young meat that he can eat these days that isn’t completely sickened by the sight of him.
Plus, it’s cheaper than barely-legal prostitutes. And Maher is nothing if not frugal.
