I have talked about Bill Maher (along with his left-wing compatriots plus one particular conservative radio-pundit) and his vile use of language to discuss women he disagrees with (here, here). However, the latest ignorance coming out of Maher is to refer to Trig Palin using the "R" word. The really disgusting aspect of this is how the audience at his show laughed. America really needs to grow up.
I have yet to understand how anyone with any functioning brain stem would find picking on a child with a developmental disability to be funny. I don't understand how anyone finds bullying, denigration and dehumanization of another person to be comic fodder. I don't see how these perverted insults adds to the humanness of the Artistic community. A community that pridefully announces how they are dedicated to social justice causes. I definitely can't see how it adds to the betterment of humankind.
No I didn't stay silent myself. Yes I sent Maher a tweet:
@billmaherusing the "r" word is bullying...noone to pick on but a child with a disability...shows you're not very much of a man

I don't expect anything worthwhile to come out of Maher about this issue. Cowards who pick on children, especially children with disabilities, generally run from adult confrontation. It actually takes brain synapses to have an intelligent political conversation. An obvious level of intellect that Maher and those like him lack.
Yes of course Sarah fought back, just like any parent would HERE
But my question is where are all the groups that screamed and yelled when Rush called Fluke a "slut." Where is the #StopMaher movement by the Left? Where is the "Rush-equivalent-movement" to throw Maher off the air, or for The Palms to cancel his show, by Media Matters and Think Progress? Where is the DNC, that castigated Rush, on Maher's bullying of a small child? I guess if you give 1 million dollars to the President's re-election campaign the self-righteous Left gives you a pass even when you bully and denigrate a helpless, defenseless child with a disability.
Compassionate Left my ass.
Makes you think doesn't it?
P.S. No I can't stand Rush myself. But I despise hypocrites even more.
