Video: Female Democratic lawmakers refuse to speak out against Bill Maher’s misogynism

posted at 4:15 pm on March 7, 2012 by Tina Korbe

The president and liberals want to talk about a “war on women”? How about the war on conservative women? It’s happening, but liberals prefer to stay silent about it — when they’re not directly waging it.

For years, comedian Bill Maher has been one of its generals. One of the most egregious examples of his disdainful derogation and objectification of women whose political ideology he despises was his disgusting denouncement of Sarah Palin as a “c-nt” at a live show in Texas last March. As, so far, I’ve never yet heard teenage girls affectionately refer to each other by that term (please may that always be the case!), I’d say Maher’s misogynistic vocab word was worse than Rush Limbaugh’s “sl-t.” (For the record, though, I wish that term were out of use, too.)

Nor do I recall Maher ever apologizing for his affront to SP. Yes, yes, I know: Sarah Palin is a national figure and Sandra Fluke is ostensibly a private citizen (more like a seasoned activist) — but, while that difference might make Limbaugh’s rant regrettable for another reason, it doesn’t make Maher’s laudable. At issue here is the language they used — language that President Barack Obama, to judge by his condemnatory remarks of Rush, supposedly wants to be eliminated from the public discourse entirely (and I agree — it should be!).

If that’s the case, how can the president possibly condone the Alabama Democratic Party’s decision to recruit Bill Maher to headline a fundraiser March 17? How can Obama not denounce the $1 million donation Maher made to his Super PAC?

Sarah Palin asked the same question in a recent tweet.

“Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters,” she wrote. “For the sake of everyone’s daughter, why doesn’t his super PAC return the $1 million that he got from a rabid misogynist?”

If Obama is anything like the female Democratic lawmakers in the above video, though, he’ll opt to say nothing rather than vocally distance himself from Maher.

Another erstwhile soldier in the left’s war against conservative women is typically non-political-but-always-pushing-the-envelope comedian Louis C.K., whose one-time rant against Sarah Palin rivaled Maher’s worst insults in its crudity. Far from calling him out, the MSM has decided to reward him. The Radio and TV Correspondents Association invited him to host its annual black-tie dinner in June. (Somewhat O/T but important: I’ll forever think this bit from Louis C.K. is one of the funniest and most spot-on pieces of social commentary I’ve seen a comedian deliver. Notice that he didn’t have to insult a single female to be funny!)

Two examples among many. As Townhall.com’s Carol Platt Liebau pleads, “Uniform standards, please!

Update: Interestingly enough, Bill Maher recently came to the defense of Rush Limbaugh and said liberals should accept his apology. Still no apology from Maher to Palin, though.

“Pres. Obama says he called Sandra Fluke because of his daughters,”

And because of his daughters, he appears with Davis Letterman ,
and because of his daughters, he invites Jimmy Fallon to prance with the Mooch in WH , because Fallon’s show welcomes Bachmann with such a respectful song played by a racist Obama supporter,
and because of his daughters, he associates himself with the Kennedys,
but then , how can Obama not do such things ?
Afterall he has been the face and voice of the group that helps smuggle underage girls for prostitution !!

How speaking out about Louis CK instead of letting him host the White House Correspondents Dinner. He said some disgusting things about Sarah Palin and her baby Trig. Barack Obama and the Female Democrat Lawmakers approve of Bill Maher and Louis CK and Sandra Bernhard , Jon Stewart,and Stephen Colbert. These ugly hate-filled “Comedians” say what Obama and the Democrat Women wish they could say. Todays liberals are sick and vile people and they try to mask it with the media, but a lot of them are Bill Maher especially the ones that post in comment sections on Sarah Palin and others. Romneybots are also disgusting pieces of garbage that say Bill Maher level filfth. Take that putz Jailbreak and that other putz csdeven or lester or the douche bag KeninCT.

The Obama’s have already destroyed the brains and souls of his daughters by subjecting them to the bigoted, anti-semite, anti-american, intolerant and vile preachings of “Rev.” Wright.

The Obama’s actually tortured their own children for years with Wright’s filth. From an early age, when they are most vulnerable, when their brains are mere sponges.

As Obama threw his grandmother and his brother under the bus, as well as his uncle, he will do the same with his daughters – if it is for personal gain. He’s already using them as tools for his re-election. That is how low and dirty the man truly is.

TWO QUESTIONS

BigSven wants to know from the brave, fearless reporter, since he got very close a couple of elitist democrat women,.. is that varmint sitting atop Rep Sheila Jackson Lee(D-TX) head alive or dead? If alive, did it snarl or snap at you as you got close? Does it have a rabies tag?..If dead, was there any foul odor noticed? If not, how was the odor covered up? Did it appear to be roadkill when viewed up close? :)

BigSven wants to know if Rep Jan Schakowsky (D-IL)demanded the brave, fearless reporter to empty his pockets, and hand over his wallet? After-all she feels all money belongs to the government, and SHE will tell YOU how much you can keep ..if any. This brave, fearless reporter obviously would not be allowed to keep anything. :(

Awesome video of an intrepid professional journalist in action!! :)

Yes, yes, I know: Sarah Palin is a national figure and Sandra Fluke is ostensibly a private citizen (more like a seasoned activist) — but, while that difference might make Limbaugh’s rant regrettable for another reason, it doesn’t make Maher’s laudable.

This argument is nonsense. I mean, seriously? Even if you ignore the fact that Fluke is testifying in public before Congress, this argument is absurd on its face.

They are now defending Obama by hiding or not reporting damning news about him or his admin. The thing to do is to call up and cancel your news paper subscriptions but tell them why and to cancel any thing to do with HBO and tell them why. Cancel any magazine if anyone still subscribes to one and any other media source but tell them why or it will just be chalked up to bad business.

Liberal women are on the modern day plantation, slaves in all regards.

Not the U.N., or any lefties are for women’s rights. Look around the world and look around closer, if you have a brain.

Lefties are neither truly liberal nor progressie. They just stole the terms.

And there you have it folks. “Yeah, were hypocrites who hold our opponents to impossible standards while exempting ourselves. TFB”

The morally bankrupt left has no business lecturing anyone as to fairness, justice or morality. Those concepts are only important to them when they can be conveniently twisted to fit the agenda.

Schadenfreude, you make very good points. I prefer the term leftist to liberal. After all, modern conservatism is classical liberalism.

patriette, if you were sarcastic…

Schadenfreude on March 7, 2012 at 4:56 PM

Whooooaaaaahhhhh!!!! Obviously my hotair sarcasm button is broken. I was mocking the liberal argument that Maher et al’s foul language is appropriate because Sarah Palin was an elected official. In other words, the left has put itself in the position of condoning sexism against women who dare to step out of the kitchens and into the public sphere.

A little piece of intellectual dishonesty that I’m sure will not be highlighted by the media.

Sorry…:)

Good point

Toooo much information for the HA server – stuff hitting all out of order.

Can you just move on…you lost on this.
Now you’re pulling out anything/everything you can find in a desperate attempt to…actually, I don’t even know what.
Rush’s tirade – which you just can’t stop making excuses for – is correctly viewed by most decent folks as just so far beyond the pale.
You will not be able to change that fact – or change the subject – or make this about some bad things other people said – or about Fast & Furious – or about Solandra – or about Michele Obama’s ski trips – or about the first dog getting flown places – or about Barney Frank’s poor shirt choice – or about a secret plan to raise gas prices – or how the Muppets are socialists – or about the time that Democrat did that thing that you thought was proof that he didn’t like some founding father.

Yes, we lost the ability to discuss reasonably the differences between our political spectrums, to the point where every female is reduced to an unequal voice by calling her a c@nt by the leftist.

And they make sure they hide behind the 1st amendment and decry the lack of “free” contraceptives to the church.

Ok, apologies – I should have watched the whole video.
Now that I have, this is even dumber that I thought.
It’s just footage of some folks being chased down by some dude shouting questions at them. And then as they ignore him, he’s imagining absurd ‘statements’ they are not giving.
Does Tina have an editor/oversight at all here?

The leftists have put up a “petition” at whitehouse.gov to have Rush dropped from Armed Forces radio.

Iowahawk has put up another petition, calling for the administration to resign.

Don’t be scared, go sign it!

They speell principle principal.

Schadenfreude on March 7, 2012 at 4:43 PM

How do they spell speell and then become the spelling sheriff to address others?

Amazing what congressional/political trash you find when you drag a million bucks through a Washington DC trailer park…

Took a walk today over to my old school. Did not check in with security or any one for that matter. Decided just to walk around some of my old haunts. 0 stickers on many of the faculty doors. When I attended these stickers would have been taken care of by the student body. In other words we would have removed them. Not the case today. Peeped in a classroom looking for an old instructor. The students in there had no personality at all. Very quiet and withdrawn. In my day had someone like me dropped in we would have all been snarking something at them. Playfully. We would have had fun with them and engaged the visited. These kids, nothing, the sound of crickets. It was a sculpture class keep in mind. The students just seemed so disinterested. Maybe I’m just way to out going and full of gumption, as we’re my contemperaries at the time, maybe today’s youth are more well mannered. My fear is that they are complacent, and conform way too readily. Just an observation. They weren’t even tired up or busy on their devices. Artist’s of my day were quite the opposite of these children.

This iPad likes to correct things that don’t need correcting.

Another historic “first:” Sheila Jackson Lee didn’t have anything to say when a microphone was anywhere around her face.
