Catholic League targets Bill Maher

As we have seen as in the case of Hopper Penn Progressives get a pass on their bigotry. Bill Maher is a very anti-Catholic bigot. He constantly trashes Catholics but gives Islam a pass. Now the Catholic League has had enough and is planning to target Maher.

If HBO personality Bill Maher habitually attacked any other group in the same way he slurs the Catholic Church he would be summarily dismissed, says the president of The Catholic League.

The organization compiled a “greatest hits” package of Maher’s anti-Catholic rants and sent a strongly worded letter to Glenn A. Britt, Chairman and CEO of Time-Warner, the group which owns HBO.

The Catholic League has a report on Bill Maher’s bigotry. If a comedian made insulting jokes about Islam they would be pulled off the air.

    Bill Maher is one weird duck. He is not a man to be taken seriously.
    After he defamed our troops for lacking courage on his goofy CNN program
    Leno had him on to rehab himself.
    But he doubled ndown on the defamation.

    That problem would solve itself, when some Muslim cut his or her head off.

    Poll: 64% Think Too Many Americans Are Dependent On Government Aid…

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 64% of American Adults think there are too many Americans dependent on the government for financial aid. Only eight percent (8%) believe not enough Americans are dependent on this aid, while 17% feel the level of dependency is about right. Eleven percent (11%) are not sure.

    There are people who think there should be more people on food stamps?

    Sometimes, the Catholic Church just makes itself a target:

    DC Cardinal McCarrick: Church Will Push for Immigration, Gun Safety

    A U.S. cardinal said he expects Catholic Church leaders to intensify efforts on behalf of a new immigration law and gun control measures as congressional legislation on the issues move forward.

    Many undocumented immigrants are “family people” who “came to make a contribution to American society,” Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, retired Catholic prelate of the nation’s capital, said in an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” which airs this weekend.

    The nation’s Catholic bishops will back up their endorsement of a path to legal status for such immigrants with more action once legislation is introduced, he added.

    “I’m hoping that when we get a bill, you’ll see how active they’ll be,” McCarrick said.

    While the Catholic Church hierarchy has clashed with President Barack Obama over abortion rights and his health-care law’s mandate for contraception coverage, the nation’s bishops are allied with him on his stance for an immigration overhaul and gun control legislation.

    A group of bipartisan senators is almost finished drafting immigration legislation to be introduced the week of April 8.

    In the aftermath of Newtown, Connecticut, shootings that killed 20 schoolchildren in December, lawmakers are at odds over new regulations of firearms and ammunition, while some push for more stringent background checks for gun-buyers.

    “We obviously are against these heavy-duty automatic weapons; their place is in war,” McCarrick said. At the legislative battle’s “flash point, I think we will find that the church is speaking out.”

    There are people who think there should be more people on food stamps?

    So, a total of 36% either think we need more people on welfare, have just about the right number, or are clueless. God help us.

    I’m assuming that the 8% who want more people on welfare either work in the White House or for the offices that process those benefit claims.

    The Church will always approach these types of policy issues from an instinctively liberal perspective and, though I disagree, I kinda would expect no less. They’re conservative on Church issues (Canon law, etc.) and liberal on political public policy issues.

    The interesting thing about OFA is that while it is targeting the Republicans, it has hermit-crabbed the Democrats. The Democrats think that Obama is building something that is part of them—he’s not.

    He is, actually, building the American Nazi Party—the genuine American Nazi Party, not a cheap-shit imported-franchise copy like those tired little copycat groups of white supremacists tried to do. It is American National Socialism, not a pale imitation of the German variety, with its own symbol, and its own Leader to whom the followers are personally loyal.

    Methinks you’ve hit it on the head! OFA is, indeed, Obama’s own party, created in his own image, just as was Hitler’s Nazi party. Democrats are just a means to an end- he’s creating his own personal constituency.

    People think that Nazis have to be carbon copies of Hitler and his henchmen, even though America in the 21st century is very different from Germany in the 1930s. Obama has built a coalition of interest groups which have been taught to hate a mythical “white person”—particularly a male mythical “white person” who is as much a phony bogeyman as the “Jew” of Nazi Germany was. These mythical “white people” are the source of all evil in America, from its founding to the present day—and only when the Coalition of the Elect, which includes opt-outs-from-being “white” if you are a Woman or Gay or Hip, finally succeed in marginalizing the mythical “white people,” will America reach its own form of Multicultural Diverse Purity.

    NRA Certificate Found At Lanza Home… Piers Morgan Thinks It Makes Him A Member Of The NRA, Demands To Know “What Checks” They Made Before Sending It To Him…

    The British host of “Piers Morgan Tonight” tweeted: “BREAKING NEWS: Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza had @NRA certificate and book called: “‘NRA guide to the basics of pistol shooting’”

    Mr. Morgan then tweeted, “I want to hear Wayne LaPierre explain what checks they made on Adam Lanza before sending him a @NRA certificate. #Newtown

    The NRA was forced to put out a statement clarifying for those in the media that people NRA certificates don’t indicate membership in the organization: “There is no record of a member relationship between Newtown killer Adam Lanza, nor between Nancy Lanza, A. Lanza or N. Lanza with the National Rifle Association. Reporting to the contrary is reckless, false and defamatory.”

    Morgan is apparently trying to see just how big a fool he can make of himself.

    The NRA has nothing directly to do with the issuance of training certificates. They’re printed by instructors after someone completes a class. We do submit a report after each class with student information, so there’s a file in the training department that shows when he took his class, but that hardly makes the NRA responsible.

    Is the USMC responsible for the JFK assassination?

    I suspect Oprah was sidelined less for her girth than because neither Michelle nor Valerie Jarrett were about to have another strong woman around someone who has a habit of bending to strong women—and, unlike either Michelle or Valerie, Oprah actually had accomplished something on her own in the private sector.

    Leaving aside the fact that it will cost you about as much as a nice SUV, plus $5 a round to fire, you have to have a real background check in order to buy automatic weapons, plus pay a $200 fee.

    By the way, regarding Obama’s Multicultural Diversity Vision of the Purified America—this, too, comes out of Ellison’s Invisible Man.

    While still a community organizer with the Brotherhood (the Communist Party), the unnamed narrator produces a multiculti poster which shows a “diversity” grouping of people, that says, “After the Struggle—the Rainbow of America’s Future.”

    The Obama “O” is part American flag, part rising sun over plowed fields, and suggests a “rainbow.”

    Morgan is an idiot. He did a show from some gun range in Texas where they let him fire an actual M2 .50 cal machine gun. When he was finished, he said “I can’t believe they let people buy things like this without a background check!”

    Leaving aside the fact that it will cost you about as much as a nice SUV, plus $5 a round to fire, you have to have a real background check in order to buy automatic weapons, plus pay a $200 fee.

    He neglected to mention that to his audience, of course.

    His only real purpose in life is to misinform the uninformed. The Mushrooms love his shit.

    Of course, there was a proposal out of the White House to “fix” that problem. I believe it came from Cass Sunnstein.

    He suggested that the government should be in charge of making sure that what was on the internet was “true.”

    Yeah, that sounds like a good plan…

    @ lobo91:

    Sure, that makes sense. That’s your responsibility as an instructor who’s doing the right thing. What I understood from the earlier link, though, was that the expectation was that the NRA (or the instructor) should run some kind of background check.

    As has been mentioned on here, releasing info on someone’s mental state gets in to all kind of problems with HIPPA. That’s got to make things tough. We absolutely need to keep guns out of the hands of people who are dangerous, while not infringing on the rights of everyone else.

    What changes would you make to our healthcare system when it comes to mental issues?

    Now for a mohel (pronounced moil) joke.

    A mohel performs the circumcisions that Jewish boys undergo eight days after birth. Imagine my tiny grandmother laughing until she cries as she tells this joke.

    So … in the front window of the mohel’s shop is a grandfather clock. A guy from out of town sees the grandfather clock, enters the shop, and says, “I vant you should fix my vatch.”

    “I don’t fix vatches,” says the mohel. “I’m a mohel.”

    “You’re a mohel? So vuts vid the clock in the front vindow?”

    The mohel shrugs. “If you vas a mohel, vut would you vant I should put in the front vindow?”

    Although this is apparently one of their free weekends on Dish, so I have it for some reason.

    During the three or four days I have it for free, I might record one or two things on my DVR.

    Actually, I’m watching Rock of Ages right now on HBO, but only because it happens to be on. I’ve seen it already.

    Obama creates panel to recommend state election law changes

    The White House announced Thursday the formation of a nine-seat Presidential Commission on Election Administration tasked with recommending changes to states’ election laws by the end of September.

    “The Commission shall identify best practices and otherwise make recommendations to promote the efficient administration of elections in order to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast their ballots without undue delay, and to improve the experience of voters facing other obstacles,” said Obama’s executive order, issued March 28.

    State elections are conducted by states, usually under state laws. However, the federal Congress has the constitutional authority to “any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators.”

    Obama’s panel does not have the legal ability to rewrite state election laws, but its recommendations could help Obama’s appointees at the Department of Justice ask friendly judges to impose changes on states.

    Another disaster in the making.
    The Country is in the very best of hands…
