When Rush Limbaugh exercised his First 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 it was his 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.”
