    People need to learn Maher is all about the shock value, and he doesn't really give a shit if he pisses someone off. I personally like the fact he doesn't care.

    And you guys say liberals have a double standard.

    So Maher is what The Statists accuse Beck/Limbaugh/Boortz/Hannity/Ingraham et al of being?

    *I'll put that in my NICE TO KNOW archives*

    Thanks the same.

    1. Even considering the racist past of the progressive/liberal movement, it would be very difficult to make a case that today&#8217;s liberals are racist. Times have changed for the movement: it has evolved into one that is not just supportive of racial minorities- but behaves as though being black is an achievement, and being black is preferred, exceptional, and surpassing.

    a. The support, though, depends on racial essentialism: blacks must behave within the liberal expectations, express the accepted black point of view, or they are inauthentic, and not 'really' black.

    b. How nicely Maher's comments fit: "I thought when we elected a black president, we were going to get a black president.&#8221; RealClearPolitics - Video - Maher: Obama Not Acting Like A "Real Black" President

    Maher's comment strikes one as humorous, but only because the 'liberal racial test' is a well-known meme.

    It's not about Obama, it's the implication that "real" black people are thugs that is messed up. CBS fired Imus for that exact kind of thing. Now, I could care less about either Imus or Maher and CBS and HBO can hire and fire whoever they like and choose their own standards.

    The double standard comes in when those leaning left give one guy a pass and skewer another based on the individuals precieved politics. One side gets painted as racist and treated as medevil heritics while the other gets a pass. Dollars to dohnuts Maher still goes on ABC for the Sunday talk show roundtable and CNN with Wolf and other MSM outlets who seek his political opinions, not his "comedy".

    There is a double standard. For my part, I just never watch, read, or listen to the lefties who get a pass for their racism. The best way to hit them is in the wallet by lowering their audience, and hence marketability.

    On the part ofConservatives? There is NO *Double Standard*. Conservatives more gravitate to the Words of Dr. King...RACE is never an issue. *Content of CHARACTER*, however is.

    Learn it, Live it, KNOW IT.
