1. You know, what Maher needs to realize, the divide isn't between left vs right.

The divide is between rich vs poor. And the rich want it all for themselves. We saw this this week - there's celebrities on both sides of the aisle who got caught up in the cheating scandal. Until we address this as the real divide in this country, nothing is going to change.

sometimes inconvinient. He is not trashing liberals, he is liberal himself. He beleives, like many of us here do, that limitation of free speech on college capuses only emboldens rw lunatics. He was also banned from UC Berkely, how fíup is that?

5. You need to take a closer look at the issue

They are just trolling college campus to claim to be the victim. The conservatives are so transparent.

He's often wrong it is like saying Sean Hannity is right whenever Maher "speaks the truth" then he is quoted in RW rags he follows people like Alt right hero Peterson and cries when he loses 40,000 followers over comic books (it should have happened a lot sooner).

11. True

However, although not your cup of tea, he is admired by millions of Democrats / liberals for his liberal views on many topics. There are times where I think his criticism of the left is unwarranted, but all in all, much of his criticism is constructive and many more times than not I tend to agree with him. Being a Democrat / liberal / Progressive does not mean having to agree with everything coming from the left. Democratic Underground would be a pretty boring place if that were the case.

Sounds more like a cult of personality.

And Maher's attacks are not constructive criticisms. They are attacks. Saying the that is a liberal face on the college admissions scandal is a lie. A lie already being used by the right to attack the left. And Maher's lie just gives them ammunition.

Personal attacks? I simply asked a couple of questions, both of which you seem to not want to answer, or are incapable of answering.

Where did I say Bill Maher cannot be criticized?
Are you sure you're not angry because everyone's opinion does not mirror your own? That is not an attack. It is a sincere question.

.... which you still have not answered . Where have I ever said that no one could criticize Bill Maher? I'm not stopping you. You have created a scenario out of thin air whereby you believe that I am somehow mounting a campaign to silence you. I'm not. Just because I don't believe Bill Maher's criticism of the left is that egregious, you have taken issue with it. Your criticism is your opinion, just as my feelings on the subject is my opinion. We're both allowed to have one. You seem to carry a bit of anger concerning my opinion of Bill Maher, whereas I have no anger toward your opinion simply because I don't care that much.

87. Okay

In the first video you posted he makes one statement this issue having a liberal face on it. One of his guests disagreed with him and pointed out that it was a bipartisan issue. His immediate reply was you are right it is a bipartisan issue. Other than that one statement there is absolutely nothing he said that wasn't true. I'm not going to cherry pick one short statement and condemn him as a liberal basher. If you want to do that then Rock on. Have at it.

In the second video he criticizes Democrats for not having the guts to go on Fox News for debates. I happen to agree with him. I also happen to agree with Eric Swalwell who agrees with Bill Maher. Funny I don't see the headlines, 'ERIC SWALWELL BASHES DEMOCRATS' for not holding debates on the Fox Channel. Although Bill Maher's statement is a little bit meaner than Eric Swalwells, they are saying the exact same thing.

And that's why, in these two cases, it is my opinion that Bill Maher does not deserve the bashing he is receiving. That's my opinion.

91. Criticism is not bashing

 

And in the first video, Maherís statement is the headline. Plus he didnít self correct. He was corrected by someone else. But that doesnít excuse his original statement.

In the second Maher is essentially calling Dems cowardly. Swalwells never did that. Maher did.

And here he is from the previous show: https://www.mediaite.com/tv/bill-maher-goes-off-on-social-justice-warriors-they-just-want-to-btch/

Maher regularly bashes liberals and Democrats, many times parroting RW talking points. When he does he needs to be called out for it.

92. The headline from the website you posted....

...in the second video seems to contradict your claim of criticism over bashing.

"Bill Maher Bashes Democrats for Not Going on Fox News: ĎHow Very Trump of Youí"

I never said he self-corrected. I said another guest corrected him and he backed up and agreed with her.

Like I said, Bill Maher's statement may have been a little meaner than Swalwell"s, but in essence, they said the exact same thing.

How many more times is it going to take telling you, that if you want to criticize Bill Maher, then have at it. If you're going to get angry because someone disagrees with your criticism and expresses an opinion, grow some thicker skin, or ignore the critic.

Swalwell and Maher were not saying the same thing. Maher was parroting a RW talk point that Dems donít have guts. Swalwell didnít do that.

For someone who seemingly loves to criticize, I don't think you take it very well. This should end the debate, although I don't think it will.

I can tolerate Bill Maher's criticisms of the left. I just don't get all up in a lather about it. Clearly, he upsets you much more than myself. Difference of opinion. End of debate.

If he settled his own battles in the forties and the 50s by debate, I simply asked how he settles his battles in the 2000s, which I assume is differently. Otherwise he would have simply stated, I settle my own battles PERIOD.

By writing the 40s and 50s, I was just showing that I grew up in a more civil time. In other words we learned how to debate which seems to be different now when people would rather use profanity and name calling. Debating shows style and intellect where profanity and name calling show a lack of intelligence. If you decide to reply to my post without using your intelligence but only wishing to bait me, I will disregard you totally in the future.

Since I did not use profanity, nor did I call anyone a name, you cannot in all honesty be referring to me.

105. I already have

Here again is my opinion on both videos you posted. That opinion will not change no matter how many times you repeat the same thing over and over. You should stop obsessing and accept the fact the others have a different opinion than yourself.

"In the first video you posted he makes one statement this issue having a liberal face on it. One of his guests disagreed with him and pointed out that it was a bipartisan issue. His immediate reply was you are right it is a bipartisan issue. Other than that one statement there is absolutely nothing he said that wasn't true. I'm not going to cherry pick one short statement and condemn him as a liberal basher. If you want to do that then Rock on. Have at it."

"In the second video he criticizes Democrats for not having the guts to go on Fox News for debates. I happen to agree with him. I also happen to agree with Eric Swalwell who agrees with Bill Maher. Funny I don't see the headlines, 'ERIC SWALWELL BASHES DEMOCRATS' for not holding debates on the Fox Channel. Although Bill Maher's statement is a little bit meaner than Eric Swalwells, they are saying the exact same thing."

"And that's why, in these two cases, it is my opinion that Bill Maher does not deserve the bashing he is receiving. That's my opinion."

one of the main philosophies of liberationism is , as they say themselves , the lowering and eliminating taxes. Its more of a core principle rather than philosophy. Bills position is 180 degrees of that.

So, if you going to call him a libertarian, prove it.

the students voted to dis-invite him as commencement speaker for a winter graduation and the faculty over rode them. Not banned and he did the commencement as I remember. He is not a liberal even if he created the hashtag #Imtheliberal. Mr. Maher is a liberation and a wealthy, privileged, and smug one to boot.

Anyone who thinks he is just isn't paying attention to the things he says. Sometimes he'll say things that are on the liberal side of the spectrum, and then he'll immediately say something like this bullshit.

IMO - the battle here is to step up and call them for them out and out propoganda wing it is.

Go on there and have their people scream at you, talk over you, run bullshit banners under your whatever other bullshit they pull isn't going to win any votes.

None.

No one who watches Fox is a "swing vote."

You can't watch that shit if you are some kind of free thinker.

The reason their viewship is so large is that is where the 1/3 brainwashed zombies in this country go - they don't got to the other channels because they have been brainwashed it is "fake news."

But I think that this act only furthers the divide in this country. And as sad as it is, Fox News is actually a much more believable news source than Infowars or some anonymous news "source" on Twitter or Facebook. It's kind of a "pick your poison" kind of deal.

I'd much rather have someone cite Fox News as a news source than Breitbart or Infowars or the Daily Caller, or any of that garbage. If you quote that crap, it's pretty obvious where you stand.

100. Maher doesn't really connect in principle with Democrats. He doesn't really care about anything.

Making contributions to politicians or to a party and then yammering about it perpetually until everyone could repeat his claims about his big money gifts along with him since he brings it all up so often.

He's empty, he's removed in character and spirit from the lives of working men and women, and the human struggle against oppression.

Whoever supports his congenital hatred of Islamic people, and women is not a Democrat, period.

His recent obsession in trying to call Democrats out of their own schedules to start appearing on the channel which has always painted Democrats as the absolute enemy of the "American people" indicates he is idle, and has far too much time on his hands to gibber from the sidelines, just like Donald Trump.

He has nothing at all at stake. He is free to look on, and to give advice to people who are struggling to make the world survivable, to return life to the earth, after the greed freaks have nearly destroyed it, and are hell-bent upon finishing the job.

I'm glad you took the time to put something on the line with this thread, Trumpocalypse. As you see, there are a couple empty people around who feel you've gored their bags of hot air.

Thank you.
