The Disgusting Left Media: Warning: Not Fit For Anyone

My friend and co-writer ‘The Rat’ on the Constitution Club conservative blog, posted a most alarming article.  I don’t watch Bill Maher- specifically because he is so hateful and disgusting.  But this article took my breath away.  What, I ask, is America coming to when THIS is allowed on T.V.?

WHERE IS THE OUTCRY FROM THE ‘MAINSTREAM’ MEDIA?

Let’s begin with an obvious disclaimer – writing about the vile bitterness of Bill Maher is not worth the time it takes to type this sentence – he is irrelevant, and nothing more than a crass “shock jock” on HBO. In the scheme of things, Bill Maher is a pathetic cartoon.

Having said that, I wrote this post for two reasons: This grotesque clown has crossed a line that not even he should cross. More importantly, where is the outcry and condemnation in the “mainstream” media over this vile and disgusting display of hatred? It does not exist.

Imagine, for a moment, what would happen if these things had been said by a conservative “comedian” in reference to Barack and Michelle Obama. Or any Democrats.

Potentially the most vile political discussion ever aired on national television occurred on Friday’s HBO program “Real Time.”

After former Air America “comedian” Marc Maron said he wanted to have violent hate sex with Michele Bachmann, sex advice columnist Dan Savage offered that he’d like to do the same with Rick Santorum. Here’s a partial (semi-graphic) transcript:

DAN SAVAGE, SEX ADVICE COLUMNIST: They’re grifters and scumbags, the Bachmanns.

[Applause]

BILL MAHER, HOST: Grifters and scumbags.

SAVAGE: Yes

MAHER: Not just one or the other.

SAVAGE: They’re not charming grifters like in the movie.

MAHER: No, no.

MARC MARON, COMEDIAN: I don’t want to be crass but I just hope that Marcus Bachmann takes all that, you know, rage that comes from repression and denial and brings it into the bedroom with her. I hope he f–ks her angrily because, because that’s how I would. And I’ve thought about it. I just…

[Laughter and applause]

MARON: …It’s a political statement I’m trying to make.

SAVAGE: Just so we get, just so you don’t get charges of sexism, because only Michele Bachmann was involved, I sometimes think about f–king the s–t out of Rick Santorum.

[Laughter and applause]

SAVAGE: Because I think…

MARON: I’m with you.

SAVAGE: …he needs it. So, it’s not, it’s not just women we’re talking about f–king. Like, let’s bone that Santorum boy.

MARON: Alright. Let’s video it.

SAVAGE: I’m up for whipping up some santorum in Santorum.

So this is what we’ve come to. There will always be vile, angry people who manage to find platforms to spew vile, angry hatred toward those with whom they disagree. Nothing new about that. What is “new,” and more of a statement on the sad state of our society than it is about smug jerks who have no shame, is this: Our country, and the things we accept – or refuse to fight – is a far cry from what it was not so long ago. That should sadden us deeply.

“Political correctness” is an interesting concept, isn’t it? We must tiptoe around certain subjects, people, religions and cultures; but when it comes to attacking conservatives – particularly Christian conservatives, we are allowed to say – without impunity – the most vile, hateful things imaginable.

What is right about that?

  1. The reason excrement such as Bill Maher is allowed to rail against conservatives and conservative values in such a vehemently hateful manner is simple. According to the libs, it isn’t hate speech. At least not if they direct it towards conservatives. Now, of course they will never admit this, but it is true. If you look at the way people like Bill Maher, Ed Schultz, Al Sharpton, Sheila Jackson-Lee and other liberal loudmouths speak out against intolerance, racism, and even hate speech itself it is always in defense of “protected” classes of people. Not in defense of ALL people, only some. And these same self-appointed “defenders of the downtrodden” have absolutely no qualms, and no hesitation when it comes to using that same hate speech against anyone whom they feel are responsible for what they see as world wide oppression of the masses. In other words, conservatives. So you see, according to the liberal mindset, it is not the content of the speech that makes it hate speech, but rather who that speech is directed at. In the words of a black liberal racist I once met, “Now it’s time for the oppressor to become the oppressed.” (Actually he used much more colorful language, but I thought I’d clean it up a bit.

  2. Hey Shortie:
    Isn’t ironic that the libtards rail against hate speech and yet are the most egregious offenders of it.
    You would have a much more effective platform if you were saying these things from the capaign trail.

  3. I lean more to the left than the right myself, but I have to agree with you here — that show is simply disgusting. In my happy fantasy world, there would be reasoned debate coming from both sides. The loudest voices on both the left and the right are extremely annoying, but this … this is just embarrassing.

    • Stuart, I think real Americans could easily solve all governmental problems EASILY. Too much money flows into politicians hands. Most can’t withstand the temptation- winning becomes the most important thing for them. Control of media is the other problem. When six or so families and groups purchase EVERY American news outlet and split them evenly among themselves, you can be assured that they are up to no good. Information is power. And they control information. Their money controls the politicians who ‘make’ the news. The combination is very powerful.

      Our problems will be solved when 1) we cut the money flow 100% from politics and 2) we break up the news cartel and disperse news ownership into many, many private hands.

  4. I honestly think the reason some in the MSM don’t condemn it is because people on the Right get SO worked up over it and start launching attacks that the MSM ends up going into defense mode.

    Kind of like if someone the Right might like, said something they don’t. They would be upset and maybe call them on it (maybe not) but soon as the people on the left starting waging war- the Right would go into protect and defend mode.

    So it is all hypocrisy, just more convenient when done by the opposition.

    That is why I don’t like Fox News (though I often watch). I agree with a lot of their ideologies but they are biased, I cannot respect that, especially from people who claim to be Christian. Just give the facts, don’t manipulate and ‘lead the witness.’ MSNBC is worse though.

    • If you read my “Who is Rupert Murdoch & Who Owns the Press” article, you will see that ALL of the news media, including FOX is owned by about 6 families and/or groups. These groups have less ownership in FOX than the others, however. The conservative bent come from Murdoch’s current belief system. I wouldn’t trust him to continue it, however, as he also had the New York Post advocate for Obama when Murdoch was trying to woo him. He even admitted as much. The trouble with the news is: MONEY & CONTROL of the elite. The internet is the only free space for real people relate news, discuss them rationally and finally, make conclusions.

      FOX news is excellent in the morning- up to Neil Cavuto. On occasion, I would watch Beck- but I often felt too hopeless afterward (even though he was right about many, many things). After that, it is mostly conversation & opinion shows. I have no problem with those shows because they do not say that they are ‘news’, but I also don’t bother with them. CNN’s morning shows are also pretty good. I realize that most people don’t have the luxury to watch the morning news (I am a stay at home mom). I would recommend the internet in that case. I steer clear of all the night shows because they are opinions. I like to formulate my own, thank you very much.
