Bill Maher has for very long-time masqueraded as a liberal comedian, while firmly occupying the role of douchbag spectacular. In the typical libertarian faux liberal fashion, Bill Maher has decided to declare that Obama is not Black enough. Yes, that is right – an over privileged, rich White guy knows what a real Black man is like.
From Real Time with Bill Maher:
I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president. You know, this [BP oil spill] is where I want a real black president. I want him in a meeting with the BP CEOs, you know, where he lifts up his shirt where you can see the gun in his pants. That's — 'we've got a motherfucking problem here?' Shoot somebody in the foot.
Go ahead, tell me that I am being too sensitive. It’s just a joke right, and no one really got hurt did they? This kind of fauxgressive bullshit has been passing for comedy for far too long. Obama is- you know what, I am not going to list his resume again because even attempting to argue against this crap gives the impression that it is not inherently racist and inane.
What I find utterly ridiculous, is that men like Maher actually think that they are different than Bill O’Reilly, who recently said that Dr. Lamont Hill kind of looks like a drug dealer. Even though Maher’s language effectively works to diminish all Black men, because he wraps it up in comedy, it is supposedly acceptable. Dear faux White liberals, there is no such thing as ironic or comedic racism, there are simply douchebags who think that they are amusing. In fact, these little jokes have only ever been amusing to those with race privilege. Maher is not nearly as far from Rand Paul as he thinks. White libertarians are not about equality and justice, they simply appropriate the language of the left.
Maher is right, we do have a “motherfucking problem,” the same one we have had for centuries – arrogant White men who don’t give a damn about anyone else but themselves.
