Bill Maher’s waiver from Barack Obama

Apparently hateful, sexist things said against conservative women are a “lesser crime” to the Obama White House. My prediction – the Left will over play their hand with the Limbaugh-Fluke incident and will eventually suffer some blowback for it.

by Aaron Goldstein

We’re still waiting for the president to call to Sarah Palin.

After Rush Limbaugh referred to Georgetown University Law Student Sandra Fluke as “a slut” on his radio program last week, the Obama Administration wasted little time in coming to her defense.

On Friday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that President Obama had spoken with Fluke. When Carney was asked to describe their conversation, he replied:

[.......]

Although Rush would issue an apology the following day it wasn’t enough for longtime Obama adviser David Axelrod who said, “I think what Rush Limbaugh said about that young woman was not only vile and degrading to her, but to women across the country.”

So what do Messrs. Carney, Axelrod and, for that matter, President Obama have to say for Bill Maher?

It is no secret that Maher despises conservatives especially of the female variety. Nearly a year ago, Maher delighted both himself and his left-wing audiences when he called Sarah Palin “a dumb twat” and “a c–t” — words even harsher than the ones Rush used against Fluke.

[.......]

Let us also remember that Axelrod wasn’t satisfied with Rush’s apology because what he said about Fluke “was not only vile and degrading to her, but to women across the country.” So does Axelrod also believe that Maher said things about Sarah Palin that “were not only vile and degrading to her, but to women across the country?”

Or has Bill Maher been granted a waiver by the Obama Administration for saying degrading things about Sarah Palin and other conservative women who do not agree with their policies? Consider how Maher bragged that he could get away with what he said because he is on HBO while Rush is at the mercy of commercial sponsors. This surely sounds like a man who has been granted dispensation from the highest authority.

After all, it was with great fanfare last month that Maher donated $1 million to Priorities USA Action, an Obama Super PAC. As the large check was being hauled out on stage, Maher said to his audience at Yahoo headquarters in Silicon Valley, “I think Mitt Romney’s going to get the (Republican) nomination, and then I hope Obama beats him like a runaway sister-wife.” Well, it’s good to know that a joke about domestic violence (not to mention Mormonism) is such a hit with liberal audiences. Of course, had Rush joked about domestic abuse (not to mention Muslims) the very same audience would rise in unison to accuse him of hate speech.

Now I, for one, did not like what Rush said about Fluke. In one fell swoop, he shifted the issue from the heavy handedness of government in compelling religious organizations to provide insurance coverage for contraceptives to the heavy handedness of Rush Limbaugh in casting aspersions upon someone for taking a point of view which differs from his own. His intervention was not helpful and Rush was ultimately right to make amends to Fluke. Unlike Axelrod, I accept both Rush’s apology and his reasons for doing so. As Rush put it:

I ended up descending to their level. It’s important not to be like them, ever, particularly in fighting them. The old saw, you never descend to the level of your opponent or they win. That was my error last week.

Of course, it should come as no surprise that Axelrod would not accept Rush’s apology. The Left has wanted Rush excised from the airwaves for nearly a quarter century. Now Rush has stumbled and they see blood in the water. So at this point, the Obama Administration is about as willing to accept Rush’s apology as Afghan President Hamid Karzai is willing to accept the Obama Administration’s apology last week for the accidental Koran burnings at Bagram Air Base. Karzai wants to put American soldiers on trial while liberals yearn to do the same with Rush. Both proceedings would be sure to have all the fairness found in a kangaroo court.

Unfortunately, I suspect that this double standard is not likely to be raised by the White House Press Corps (with perhaps the possible exceptions of Jake Tapper at ABC or Ed Henry at FNC). If I were a member of that scrum, I would ask Jay Carney the two following questions, “In light of Rush Limbaugh’s apology to Sandra Fluke for his inappropriate comments, why didn’t you call upon Bill Maher to apologize for his inappropriate comments against Sarah Palin a year ago? Will President Obama now publicly call for the Super PAC acting on his behalf to return the $1 million donated by Maher?”

When it comes to Sarah Palin and other conservative women being pilloried for expressing their views on public policy, I don’t think the Obama Administration will put the money where Bill Maher’s mouth is. In other words, the Obama Administration has no waivers for conservative women like Sarah Palin.

    Some Progressive woman told me its OK for Maher to insult Conservative women. She said that Conservative women are against women causes, so a man like Bill Maher who supports women causes gets a pass.

    I am not joking, that’s what I was told.

    Axelrod is going on Bill Maher’s show this week, which shows what a commitment Barack Obama has for women (hint: none if they are conservative women).

    If an event occurs and no one in the MSM reports it, did it really happen?

    With apologies to Buzz for treading on his territory.

    Yeah, come on all of you, big strong men,
    Uncle Sam needs your help again.
    He’s got himself in a terrible jam
    Way down yonder in Obamaland
    So put down your books and pick up some cash,
    We’re gonna have a whole lotta fun.

    And it’s one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,
    Next stop is Obamaland;
    And it’s five, six, seven,
    Open up the bankruptcy gates,
    Well there ain’t no time to wonder why,
    Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.

    Well, come on congress, let’s move fast;
    Your big chance has come at last.
    Gotta go out and get those reds —
    The only good taxpayer is the one who’s dead
    And you know that peace can only be won
    When we’ve spent ‘em all to kingdom come.

    And it’s one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,

    Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.

    Huh!

    Well, come on Wall Street, don’t move slow,
    Why man, this is spending au-go-go.
    There’s plenty good money to be made
    By supplying the sluts with the tools of the trade,
    Just hope and pray that if they drop their pants,
    They drop them for a democrat.

    And it’s one, two, three,
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,

    And it’s five, six, seven,

    Well there ain’t no time to wonder why
    Whoopee! we’re all gonna die.

    Well, come on mothers throughout the land,
    Pack your boys off to Obamaland.
    Come on fathers, don’t hesitate,
    Send ‘em off before it’s too late.
    Be the first one on your block
    To have your home up on the auction block.

    And it’s one, two, three
    What are we fighting for ?
    Don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn,
    Next stop is Obamaland.
    And it’s five, six, seven,

    It seems short sighted of women’s rights groups to choose their targets based on politics and political favors. That is what sluts do. j/k I don’t want to offend anyone that thinks of themselves as a slut.

    Obama thinks he has enough goodwill in the country to lose any iota of integrity he has.. Not much of a president. His basic constituency is the “Gimmee…..” constituency. And they are hell bent on eroding the liberty of the country to fatten their pocketbooks.

    In Biblical verse THIS is one of the main functions of the concept called The Devil. Obama Supporter= The Devil

    I don’t know how much credibility to put in “activist” reporting out of syria, but here is more fertilizer for the a-rab spring.

    Syrian hospitals are torture chamber

    CBS News) In a video shot secretly inside a Syrian regime military hospital in the besieged rebel stronghold of Homs, men are blindfolded and shackled to their beds. The chains are extremely tight.

    One man’s chest and hand show what appear to be wounds from a severe beating. Instruments of torture lie on a nearby table -- an electric cable and a rubber whip.

    The hospital staffer, who risked his life to capture this footage, said he’s seen doctors assault opposition activists.

    “I have seen detainees being tortured by electrocution, whipping, beating with batons,” the man videotaping said, adding they also break their legs by twisting the feet until the leg gives.

    This is not the first account of allegations of torture in state run hospitals. This week the U.N. said it had received similar video.

    Completely concur, but his speeches, actions and feckless statements over time reveal his medicoracy… sociapathic tendenicies aside.

    I paper bag would win over Obama, but unfortunately it will probably Mitt.
