    look at the voters like this... half of the nation will vote Trump. The liberal vote is scattered among lines they can't agree about... vegetarian, peta, lesbians who like sex with furniture..... etc. Liberal shytheads.. agree and you may stand a chance.

    To all the parents of children who have been taken from them, to all the mothers fearing they may be forced to carry ectopic pregnancies until they die, to all the military veterans yet to be deported, "let it go".

    "Never forget the single shining truth about democracy: it means sharing the country with assholes you can't stand." Have you ever considered sir that maybe democracy is the problem?

    If We The People don’t kill these evil leftist pieces of shit our kids will be on the front lines. We The People will not let that happen. We will vanquish the libtwat scum from the earth starting with their puppet master Rothschilds and other banking slave masters that need leftist Bolshevism to maintain their power, wealth, and fucking greed. Propagandist like Bill Maher will not be sparred when the civil war is underway. You leftist will not enslave the American Citizenry, you will fucking fail.

    I don't really like Bill anymore, but this was a good message.

    Edit: he went a bit too far saying that Bush was against Islamaphobia, when he illegally invaded a sovereign nation resulting in the deaths of countless men, women and children for no other reason than arabs and oil.
    Also he preaches tolerance and then suggests that Trump is worse than being a war criminal.

    Don’t worry about a civil war. There won’t be one. I like that he addresses the idea of it. It’s only to highlight the message of tolerance, even of things you find intolerable. We need to spend more time working on ourselves and not just blaming the other side. Nice how he says positive things about Bush. An example of this put into practice. This is why Maher is the anti-Limbaugh. Yeah they both rant, but Bill does it thoughtfully, and is aware of the consequences of being an absolutist

    So good with "the four middle buttons of the blender you never use", and so bad with "let it go". That is not how differences co-exist. That's how differences linger and fester forever. But you do have to blow off the talking points that are all wilt and no wit, and actually cross a few wires at the far edges.

  • jacobie Tisdale

    This is why I listen to Bill. I'm a strong conservative and though Bill and I don't agree on much, the guy has these moments where he comes off the liberal edge and speaks to the left in ways in which the left and right should be finding compromise and not attempting to destroy each other. Speaking to his base while showing the hypocrisy of both sides is commendable. I see a lot of folks disliking the way he went about it, but is there a way anyone would have liked him do it? LOL Many times he is the only reasonable mouthpiece on the left. A little raunchy but he punches both sides in the mouth respectively. Don't get me wrong, he goes to the edge every once in and a while, but he finds his way back to the moments of what many would consider passion for your fellow man. Their is humanity on the left and the right and I believe this is why many can see the middle and wonder; who is controlling the major pushes to the left and the right. This is what he was addressing. The extremes on both sides is what will drive us to war. I am sure Bill never reads these comments but he did a good thing here. Ya he spoke to his base, but he called out the real problem in America and it makes me wonder if he is pondering on whether he has had a role to play in the direction of the current state of affairs. That reflection of oneself is commendable. I hope some on the left and right really heard what he was saying and can see passed the political bias and humor. I know what side he is on, but a lot of times he stands in the middle and you have to do that every once in a while to ensure groupthink doesn't set in. I am giving credit where credit is due. Good message Bill.

      Also forgot to add that Bill is an interesting character within the left. A lot of the times he seems hated by both sides. I myself don’t always love him or agree, but i think thats the point- that fact that he is rejected on the basis of his moderate *by both political parties* seems quite telling of where we are as a nation. Believe it or not he is known for pissing off liberals quite a lot and is called a “republican in disguise”. When you take a step back and look at who Bill has always been, that statement seems genuinely ridiculous.
      We also see “liberal in disguise” tactic being thrown around by conservatives as well. Democrats have our own version of “RINO”. we need to be considering the reason we are accusing anyone within our own party who vocalizes a differing opinion of being a party “traitor”.
      I always thought it was the republicans who were blind to their toxic loyalty in this way, but now i am seeing the democrats are completely guilty of this as well- each in our own ways. Who knew that in the era of trump, we would have democrats calling president obama corrupt. Weird times man

      Democrat lib from brooklyn here, and i just wanted to say i agree. (We agree on something, yay!) Id like to think there are more of us out there than we are lead to believe.
      i am starting to see that the extremism, in part, is fueled by both domestic and foreign based propaganda that literally only seeks to divide our country, and its working. We need to wakeup to who that division is actually serving. From my perspective as a dem, i’ll admit i have noticed the far left consumes the same propaganda as the far right at times, without even noticing it. You have to wonder why that is. We need to be able to have nuanced conversations within our own “sides” about this without fear of retribution. Thanks for posting

I'm not a fan of George Bush, Jr., but like Bill says at least his first loyalty is to this country as the 43rd president of the united states and if you can turn a blind eye to a traitor who happens to be the 45th and spouts the hateful and racist crap that you live for??? You're not really an American, but the Russian version of the Klu Klux Klan!!! X - O

  • Jimmy Walter

    While I applaud his telling people to let it go and not try to destroy people, unfortunately, he started out "destroying" people with his assertions that we must share our country with "assholes you can't stand". That dehumanized them. As wrong as they are, they are just humans, not merely disembodied body parts that excrete foul smelling waste. Maher later lashes out at Trump over "human scum" and other angry epithets. Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. He hits a home run with the comments about how "end of the world" thinking, both here other causes, makes people do violent, stupid things and further dehumanize their opponents. He should practice what he preaches.
    A final comment about "can't stand". If you really couldn't stand whatever, you would be dead already. Why is whatever so horrible? Get factual. You CAN stand it. Saying you can't makes you believe you must do something or pushes you into depression.

    The next time you think a civil war might be a good idea in the modern era, just ask yourself how many of your friends own rifles, how many rifles they own, how many rounds of ammunition they have, and how proficient they are with those tools. If the answer is "lots" and "very proficient", then your side might do ok. If the answer is: "none" and "they're loud and scary", buckle up kiddo.

    Sorry, but Maher is a piece of shit who couldn't care less about people, period. He's so consumed with hate for Trump that last year he stated that he hopes the economy crashes due to a severe recession. So obviously, he doesn't give a shit that millions of people would suffer as a result. After all, it wouldn't affect him. His net worth is 500 million dollars so it wouldn't affect him in the least. Just goes to show how selfish and self-entitled he is. And at least Trump isn't a warmonger like Bush and Hillary. Bush got us into a war we never should have participated in. And those countries ARE shitholes and everyone who is upset about Trump saying that knows it's true. At least he has the balls to say what people are thinking but are too politically correct to say it. And if there is a civil war, Democrats wouldn't stand a chance. I'm more concerned with having a good economy than Trump saying "mean things". And Democrats are no longer Democrats. Look at their policies. They are Socialist and Marxist on the verge of Communist.

      I don't know, did he? And if he did, is he not allowed to realise his mistake and change his mind? Some more of that would also be a welcome thing of late. Mind changing. Allowing your viewpoint to shift based on new information, or new understanding of old information, rather than clinging blindly to your past prejudices or ill-informed opinions.

    #SCORCHEDEARTH.... Donald Trump represents a way of thinking. It's solely selfish and hateful AND 100% destructive to the entire globe. They sided with a traitor to the human race. That is different than differences of opinion. You dont get to be mentally ill, threaten, marginalize, torture, and threaten and get a "well, we all gotta live together pass". FUCK NO. The reason terrible people continue to be terrible is that people forgive (but not really), they just are too lazy to hold the torch of "remember". 30% are evil. 30% are kind. 30% do nothing = support evil. 60%:30%. Perhaps putting our foot down and turning our back is a better idea, since we haven't tried it yet.

      @ralfsis Who made you the arbiter of history? Political historians all agreed there was a political shift in the 1970s when the Southern Democrats and the wealthy Republicans formed the modern Republican. The Southern Democrat was where Civil War, slavery, Jim crow, kkk originated. However, the Democrats no longer control the south today. The descendants of those voters now votes solidly Republican.

He's trying to equivocate the Democrats of today to the Republicans of Frederick Douglas. ROFL! Um...NO Bill, you DEMS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME PARTY OF THE LATE 1800s. You brought Slavery 2.0 and then Slavery 3.0 via welfare. Your policies have kept black communities on the Democrat plantation for decades. Now you want Slavery 4.0 not just for blacks but for all Americans by flooding the country with illegals, while trying to repeal 2nd Amendment and killing Free Speech. You helped create the monsters in your party.
