Response to Exilednight (Original post)

56. What about the people dumb enough to do back flips in

defense of him?

I'll just say this... I've watched Bill Maher since the Politically Incorrect days. I don't think I've missed a episode since he started on HBO... Year after year I watched him become more and more offensive, making ignorant comments about President Obama not being black enough (according to Maher's dumbass stereotypes), disrespectful comments about women, gays, Muslims--basically everyone in the democratic tent except for white guys.

As usual, I tuned in Friday and then I heard that comment. I had to pause and rewind--did this mfcker really just say that? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of the situation, but for me personally, it still would have been highly offensive if he had said "I'm not a house slave." But it looks like he wanted to pack in as much disrespect as possible, so he said what he said.

Let's be clear: The Slavery of Africans in this country is NOT a laughing matter. 400 years of brutal rapes, abuse, murder and torture is not funny. So fuck any ignorant asshole who thinks it's ok to joke about that.

Do I think Bill's intent was malicious? No, but I see now that his disrespect for his fans (many who happen to be African American) has reached the point of no return. I'm not among those calling for him to be fired, but I will not subject myself to his abuse anymore. Enough is enough.
I almost blame myself for watching in the first place in light of his recent unhinged anti-Muslim rants, etc. I'm done!
