Bill Maher Stokes the Fires of Stupidity

January 12, 2011 at 9:29 PM

I watched a recent video clip of Bill Maher appearing on the Jay Leno show and of course, Leno gave Maher the opportunity to speak his mind about the recent situation in Arizona.  Not one to couch his words in intelligence, Maher proceeded to rip apart everyone from the NRA to the Supreme Court to conservatives in general.

Frankly, I’m not sure happened with Maher.  He used to be funny when he had his show Politically Incorrect.  Now, he’s simply an ass.

One of the first comments out of his mouth was that the NRA owns the Supreme Court.  Really Bill?  I thought the Supreme Court was “owned” by the pro-abortionists.

Maher proceeded to knock the NRA essentially trying to point out that they should change their name to “the Assassin’s Lobby, because that’s what they are. Nobody needs a gun that fires 31 rounds.” The comedian then criticised Arizona’s firearms laws that allow citizens to carry weapons in public places, saying, “These guys always think that it’s great to have a gun because if some bad stuff goes down, I’ll be able to stop the bad guy.”  Maher then went on to explain why that couldn’t happen, because it takes months to become so well-trained that a person could do that.

During one of this comments, part of the audience audibly disagreed with Maher and his response was a sarcastic, “Do you read?”  I’d ask Maher the same question.  Apparently, he reads nothing that has anything to do with how many people have actually stopped a crime in progress because they had a gun, many of which I have listed in another blog below.

People like Maher would like us to believe that if we simply get rid of guns, then all will be right with the world.  Just as soon as the criminals swear off guns completely, I’d at least be willing to think about getting rid of mine.

Maher also has a problem with people who actually look to the U.S. Constitution for guidance and for the assurance of their rights, as if it is some foreign document that was found buried under a rock some place.  He thinks we need to stop referring to the 2nd Amendment.  I’ll do that, just as soon as everyone stops referring to 1st Amendment, which guarantees people like Maher the right to freedom of speech, no matter how asinine or insipid his comments may be.

I normally disagree with President Obama and whether he actually believes what he said tonight in Arizona is beside the point.  Unlike Sheriff Dupnik and numerous others like Maher, President Obama said what he should have said and this is one time when I can applaud the man for being a leader.

Regarding the tragic deaths and attempted assassination of Giffords, Obama stated “What we cannot do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on each other.”  He further remarked, “If this tragedy prompts reflection and debate, as it should, let’s make sure it’s worthy of those we have lost. Let’s make sure it’s not on the usual plane of politics and point scoring and pettiness that drifts away in the next news cycle.

“At a time when “we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who happen to think differently than we do,” Obama said, the killings should make Americans ask themselves “Have we shown enough kindness and generosity and compassion to people in our lives?

These are good questions and I am grateful that President Obama took the high road here.  He made some very good points, and hopefully everyone – especially the media and those in the entertainment industry – will stop treating this as an occasion to lambaste one another.

President Obama continued, “As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility,” the president said. “Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let’s use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully… and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together….

As the memorial service for all the victims continued, President Obama addressed the question that so many have already decided.  “None of us can know exactly what triggered this vicious attack. None of can know with any certainty what might have stopped these shots from being fired or what thoughts lurked in the inner recesses of a violent man’s mind.”

This is exactly what people like Bill Maher, Sheriff Dupnik and many others within politics and without should have said.  Instead, they preferred to stand as God inwardly believing they know why this lunatic did what he did.

I have to say that at least on this occasion, I am very grateful for President Obama’s position and for his words here.  Let’s hope it will go a long way in helping the people of Arizona to heal and let’s also hope that others will take a cue from him.
