Bill Maher on the Michael Sam ESPN Kiss: ‘The Culture War Is Over And We Won!’ - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-05-25 at 10.01.06 AM

During “New Rules” on Friday’s Real Time, Bill Maher spoke at length about his belief that liberals have won the culture war and should therefore ease off their apparent over-reliance on ‘political correctness’

DonjonesIn his speech, Maher singled out Miami Dolphins defensive back Don Jones, who was suspended and fined after tweeting “OMG” and “Horrible” in reaction to Michael Sam’s kiss with his boyfriend on ESPN.

Said Maher:

Folks, we had a televised, celebrated interracial gay kiss during the NFL draft. The culture war is over and we won…Which is why it was so unnecessary for so many to type what a jerk Don Jones was…give this kid a minute to get enlightened. He's 24. Think how stupid you were at 24. Okay now add football.

He added:

“A few weeks ago the CEO of Mozilla was forced to resign because it was revealed that in 2008 he supported Proposition 8 - California's ban on gay marriage. A bad law yes, but 52% of Californians supported it. Do they all have to resign? Obama was against gay marriage in 2008. Does he have to resign? Hillary came around just last year. Can she be president? You can’t purge everybody who doesn’t’ evolve exactly on the timetable you did”

Bill Maher Tells Pussy Riot: Vladimir Putin Might Be Gay — VIDEO

Pussyriot_maher

Masha Alyokhina and Nadya Tolokonnikova of  Russian protest group Pussy Riot sat down with Bill Maher last night, Mediaite reports:

The extended conversation, with translation help from Tolokonnikova’s husband Petr Verzilov, touched on a lot of issues, but one particularly funny moment call when Maher asked the group, “What is with the gay hate over there?”

“Vladimir Putin talks a lot about, ‘we’ve got to check the gays,’” Maher continued. “And in my experience, any time somebody talks a lot about how we have to get the gays in line, I mean, it turns out that they’re really gay themselves. I mean, every time I see a picture of Putin, he’s got his shirt off.”

“People think that that might be the case,” Alyokhina said to Maher’s genuine surprise. “So far we haven’t seen his active side of that, in that area.”

Bill Maher on Mozillagate: 'There is a Gay Mafia...If You Cross Them, You Do Get Whacked' — VIDEO

Maher

Bill Maher touched on the resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich last night on the "Overtime" portion of Real Time with Bill Maher. It's unclear how long the discussion went on about it but in a brief segment that appeared online a couple of Maher's guests, former Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) weighed in, as well as Forbes magazine's Carrie Sheffield, who used one of the nonsensical responses being used by some in the right-wing - that Obama was still against gay marriage when Eich made his donation.

Maher nods his head, adding: "Good point. Also, I think there is a gay mafia. I think if you cross them, you do get whacked."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

As far as the Obama point goes, Jeremy Hooper refuted that talking point the other day:

...look, President Obama was certainly wrong on marriage, something he himself now realizes...But the fact of the matter is that the Democratic candidates (and most Dems in general) opposed the abject and unconstituional nastiness that was and is Proposition 8 because, even when they had yet to come to their current places of support, they knew that altering governing documents for the sole purpose of limiting rights was a bad idea. Mr. Eich apparently felt otherwise.

By all means, defend Mr. Eich's actions and criticize his treatment. But stop lying about who was supposedly his compatriot in the Prop 8 battle. Barack Obama—who also opposed DOMA, backed ENDA and hate crimes legislation, and vowed to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell—was not on his team.

In other news, Brendan Eich's Twitter account has gone dark:

“Sorry, that page doesn't exist!” is all that remains of where Eich once connected with his more than 31,000 followers.

Eich's final tweet was a March 26 link to a blog post in which he discussed his commitment to diversity. “Inclusiveness at Mozila [sic],” he messaged.

AFA’s Bryan Fischer: There is a Reason God Hasn't Killed Bill Maher — VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 11.07.04 AM

Bill Maher has made a lucrative career out of pointing out the flaws of religious dogma, but last week's episode of Real Time may take the cake for the most epic anti-religious rant he's delivered yet. 

Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 11.08.05 AMOn his "New Rules" segment Friday, Maher called God a "psychotic mass murderer" and declared that the U.S. is a "stupid country" because 60% of Americans believe the Bible's story of Noah and the Ark to be literally true. He went on to criticize conservatives for complaining about restrictions and regulations while voluntarily inventing religious rules. Joked Maher: "Isn't life hard enough without making shit up out of thin air to fuck with yourself?" 

Needless to say, this didn't sit well with American Family Association spokeshater Bryan Fisher, who dedicated a segment of his radio show on Monday defending the story of Noah's Ark and explaining why God hasn't struck down Maher yet. 

Said Fisher:

God has given [Maher] that gift, the gift of free will, the gift of judgment, the gift of discernment, this enormously precious gift of being able to make decisions for our own lives. And so now Bill Maher is using that for profane and blasphemous purposes. There’s absolutely only one reason why Bill Maher draws another single breath and that is because God is merciful, God is compassionate…why does God allow Bill Maher to go on these blasphemous rants? Because he is waiting for Bill Maher to come to the place of repentance.

I have a feeling God might be waiting on that for a while...

Catholic League's Bill Donohue Wants Bill Maher Axed Because Dan Savage Pointed Out That Priests Rape Children

Savage_maher

Dan Savage's recent appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher was the last straw for Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue, who sent off a strongly-worded letter to the board of directors of Time Warner.

DonohueWrites Donohue:

Maher commented on gay couples who adopt children, alleging that a Hawaiian bishop said these kids had a greater chance of committing suicide. Here is how Savage responded: “That’s total bulls***. He’s confusing children of gay parents with children who are raped by Catholic priests. Sorry, I am just done being lectured about children and their safety by Catholic-f***ing bishops, priests, cardinals.” Shortly thereafter, Savage again remarked about “kiddie-f***ing Catholic priests.”

We are sending to every member of Time Warner’s board of directors a copy of 54 anti-Catholic statements made by Bill Maher on TV [click here to read the report]. Friday’s show concluded the season. The time has come to close this show once and for all.

Tweets Savage:

"Funny thing about this... ...is that I was raised Catholic. And so was @billmaher. Also, too, we're in the right."


Dan Savage Goes Off on Catholic Priests, Alec Baldwin, and the Cheneys with Bill Maher: VIDEO

Savage_maher

Dan Savage sat down with Bill Maher to talk about "buttloads" of gay stuff, including religious officials, like a priest, who testified in Hawaii that gay marriage will harm children.

Replies Savage:

 "He's confusing children who were raised by gay parents with children who were raped by Catholic priests."

Savage also lays in to Mary Cheney and Heather Poe:

"Mary does a pretty good approximation of evil, however...They're wealthy dykes who until ten minutes ago couldn't give a flying f--k about the rights of same-sex couples in the state where they live or any other state. $2500 check to Mitt Romney in 2012. Voted for Mitt Romney in 2012...Romney was a thousand times worse than Liz and Mary wrote that f--ker a check."

The conversation then moves to Alec Baldwin and his hair-trigger homophobia.
