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”

Miami Dolphins Player Don Jones Suspended and Fined for Offensive Tweet Directed at Michael Sam


Miami Dolphins defensive back Don Jones, who tweeted "OMG" and "Horrible" in reaction to Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams, apologized to Sam and the Dolphins on Sunday night, and was suspended and fined by the team, CBS Sports reports.

Said Jones in a statement:

"I want to apologize to Michael Sam for the inappropriate comments that I made last night on social media. I take full responsibility for them and I regret that these tweets took away from his draft moment. I remember last year when I was drafted in the seventh round and all of the emotions and happiness I felt when I received the call that gave me an opportunity to play for an NFL team and I wish him all the best in his NFL career...I sincerely apologize to Mr. Ross, my teammates, coaches, staff and fans for these tweets. I am committed to represent the values of the Miami Dolphins organization and appreciate the opportunity I have been given to do so going forward."

Coach Joe Philbin called Jones' statements "inappropriate and unacceptable" adding "We met with Don today about respect, discrimination and judgment. These comments are not consistent with the values and standards of our program."

Jones must undergo sensitivy training before he will be allowed to rejoin team activities.

Now that there is a gay player in the league, the homophobic nonsense is over.
