bill mahr

I don't know why I ever watch his show. I always end up throwing my TV brick at the smarmy sumbitch. I learned last night that all Southern conservatives are snake-handling jesus freaks. Martin Short was right there on Bill's side to throw in his wisdom about snake-handling conservatives.

One of these guys is an effite jew who lives in California and the other is a prick from Canada. I wanted to thrust myself onto the screen and ask, "How many snake-handlers have YOU ever seen, you self-righteous assholes?"

I already know the answer: NONE!

Some crazy religious people do handle snakes in the South. I've seen such a ceremony twice in my 53 years of life, and both times I went to see it the way someone would pay a quarter at the county fair to watch a geek bite the head off a live chicken. It was a bizarre show--- not what most Southern people do every day.

I resent a fucked-up California asshole and a Canadian asswipe just stating, as if it were pure fact, that handling snakes is a common practice in the South. It isn't. Only a few real loonies do that kind of crap, and they don't have a large following. But the audience applauded like thunder when Bill and Martin made fun of the South that way.

That show is an abortion. The audience is a bunch of kool-ade drinking idiots. Bill Mahr needs to be dragged off and shot. Pompous ass. I saw him retreat twice last night when confronted with actual facts. His response was "Well, everybody knows..." Oh. They DO? He is Ted Rall without a comic strip.

Why is the N-word forbidden while it's perfectly okay for some pasty-faced prick from California to defame the entire South? Why does the audience laugh when these undocumented slurs are cast out like truth?

I suppose that's it's a combination of Bill Mahr and California. Shit plus shit equals shit.


Baby boomers often believe they have outgrown the bigotry they attribute to their elders. The objects of their persecutions know better: they simply chose different targets.

This asshole is an embarassment to us Yankees. He needs to be slapped, and he'd cry for sure.

Posted by: Jim - PRS on April 30, 2005 12:35 PM

Bill Mahr AND JB (see earlier comments by him under the An Army of One topic) both need to be bitch slapped, imo. Smarmy assholes, indeed.

Posted by: KenS on April 30, 2005 12:38 PM

That shithead pisses me off more than almost anyone. Just thinking about him makes my blood boil. Who the fuck is he, to talk about the South like that?

Whatever, though -- he's just an angry pothead. Sore that his man lost, sore that we have power in politics. He's just a sore loser... and he has to look that way.

Of course, he also kissed Ward Churchill's ass when he was on. That says a lot about him.

You couldn't have described it any better Rob, Shit plus shit equals shit. They're just another lie, living and promoting the lie.

Posted by: Jack on April 30, 2005 01:08 PM

There is one and only one way to get that asshole Maher off the tube: make his show unprofitable for the network.

It's an interesting conundrum: Shrieking Al Franken can't make Err America profitable, yet shrieking Bill Maher seems to endure. At least "Politically Incorrect" was somewhat balanced, but the new show is off the deep end.

As always -- it's about the money. Cut the profitability, it goes away. Anyone stomach Maher long enough to get a reasonably comprehensive list of advertisers so we know who to avoid?

Posted by: Grumpy Old Ham on April 30, 2005 01:27 PM

Maher's actually Catholic, but that's the only possible nit I would pick. That, and he was born in New York and raised in New Jersey. Okay, those two nits, and it's actually Martin Short who's Jewish, if that's the sort of thing that matters to you, making a grand total of three nits, which ain't bad. I detest Maher, myself.

There are plenty of criticisms to make about my beloved Golden State, but please keep in mind that since at least the end of the Second World War every freak and weirdo who couldn't hack it in his place of birth seems to have made his way out here. This human refuse from 49 states has seriously distorted politics here, and have degraded the social environment for those of us who are conventionally minded. Slag away all you want, but please keep in mind, at least every now and again, that we generously act as the Liver Of The Nation, filtering out undesirables so that the rest of you don't have to put up with them.

I guess I'm just a "red-state dumbass".

Posted by: DaneBramage on April 30, 2005 02:40 PM

bill maur is a embarrasment to humans throughout America and other free countrys of the world. I am sorry he offended you and would of slapped him upside his empty head but i was not anywhere near him. He got on my shit list last week when he told jane fonda that she was a great American...........grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Posted by: arathorn on April 30, 2005 04:16 PM

Well I'm from Callyfornia and I think Bill Mahr is a steaming pile of shit

Posted by: Robert on April 30, 2005 04:49 PM

OK, Bill Mahr is tied with some others at the top of my pricks list.

But, please, just draw a blue circle around the LA Basin,
the San Fernando Valley, San Francisco, and Marin County.
The leftover part of the state ain't half bad.

I just don't want ANY more of them moving to rural AZ.
They corrupt our cowboy culture.

Posted by: Dan Pursel on April 30, 2005 05:59 PM

Feh, we've been the butt of jokes ever since the end of the war in 1865. Just because some peckerhead gets on TV and rips on the South just shows that :

1. He's never set foot in the South, at least the part he's talking about.
2. He probably has no idea about what he's talking about other than what he's read in news articles.
3. He's projecting.

Personally, the more people like him talk like that the longer we can keep the assholes from moving here and ruining it for the rest of us. Just look at what's happened in my home state Florida... specifically that part of the state that can't figure out how to vote correctly. Retired yankee's infested that part of the state and it went straight to hell in a handbasket. End result? Mass stupidity.

FWIW I live in AL now and you can easily spot peckerheads because they're always trying to tell the rest of the population how it *should* be done because "Thats the way we do it where we came from." We casually invite them to hop the first moving object bound for that destination ASAP and remind them they ain't there anymore.

i'm a canadian and i HATE martin short. he wrecked sctv, it was funny until that prick was added to the cast.
when i watch the old reruns, if short is in the cast i refuse to watch.

Posted by: billy pilgrim on April 30, 2005 07:09 PM

South: Elvis Presley, B.B. King, Muddy Waters, John Coltrane, Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, and the birthplace of jazz, rock, and the blues.

North: Barry Manilow, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kenny G., Liberace, John Tesh, and the birthplace of rap, disco, and polka.

Enough said.

Your lack of intellectual inabilitiy notwithstanding, never mind your even worse inability to argue a cogent point of thought without resorting to ad hominen and basic playground name-calling . . .

Bring your sorry ass over to Texas and let this ole boy teach you sumpin about bitch-slapping, if you think that is a solution to matters. I promise you, the matter will be solved.

You are a punk. Period. You cannot argue from a factual basis--so you just dance from post to post like a internet nerd, taking potshots and acting important.

I reiterate . . .

Punk. And that is not ad hominem, but factual, as you have proven it to be true of yourself.


Posted by: jb on April 30, 2005 10:37 PM

Mahr's a PETA nut too. But he thinks women should be able to kill kids up to a month after birth. That tells you how Catholic he is. The only thing Catholic about him is his penchant for little boys.

Posted by: Terry on May 1, 2005 08:58 AM

JB, sure, I was making ad hominem attacks on you...but I did so knowingly. Being up at 2 AM will do that to ya.

As for the rest, I really couldn't give a flying fig what you think, as I've more things in my life to consider.

So, why don't you start your own blog where you can add to the clanging of cymbals that is opinion these days, instead of using this site for your personal crusade? Who knows, you might find people that actually agree with you and might have been involved in that poll you mentioned as evidence of your being on the side of the good.

Then, you can explain in clear English what this country has to apologize for. And maybe, just maybe, you might be so moved to apologize for your arrogance for doing what you did on this site, just to get your dosage of attention you crave.

Then again, I doubt you're capable of such honesty. And you're STILL a prick.

There's some punk music I happen to like, such as FEAR's "Let's Have A War", among others.

Rob, I said I wouldn't do this once before, and I did. So in the spirit of JB's first post I apologize, again. I can't help m'self...I'm surrounded in shit, being a California native still within 100 miles of San Francisco.

That's my story, at least.

If the nation suddenly got infected with some horrible affliction called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, we wouldn't need legalized abortion, Alcoholics Anonymous, D.A.R.E, the Ad Council, or any of this other shit. Unfortunately, such a transformation is out of tune with the national character, and I am damned sick and tired of seeing law-abiding citizens having to wait over half a fucking year to get a pistol permit while some jerks in the crime-ridden ghetto are buying the shit right out of someone's trunk, and don't even need a fucking background check to do so.

Oh...a redneck neo-nazi blog...and I didn't think that you could get a internet connection in a trailer.

bill"i'm a pussy"mahr is a wannabe stand up commedian who couldn't make it so he jumped on the"I hate Republicans" bandwagon.he makes me sick..his pollitically incorrect show sucked and his quests sucked also..janine "gag me" garafalo?don't get me started on that bitch!

Posted by: JACK on October 29, 2005 01:40 PM

Bill lost his status as host of "Politically Incorrect" because he used to treat his guests like shit. It was alway's his opinion was the only one that counted. I haven't even watched the new show because of his attitude.

Posted by: Eddy on January 23, 2006 12:08 AM

Bill Maher may seem stuck up and pompous...but he's right about alot of shit and knows how backward fucked up this country really is....

Posted by: David Burdick on February 12, 2007 08:50 PM

Bill Mahr is one of the very few voices of logic
of logic out there today, anyone who tries to debate this is an obvious fool.

Posted by: bud on April 16, 2007 04:05 PM

Too bad you spelled Maher wrong... but I could be nitpicking. It's not like he's uh, you know QUALIFIED to say any thing about any one or any thing. But then again, you do have a remote, you can change the channel...

That goes for those of us who don't like more conservative, bone headed people. Like Scott McClellan. I think both sides are extremely guilty of bitching incessantly and whining about things that don't need to be whined about. If you don't like him, even you said, you don't know why you watched it. So why watch it?

I personally like him, but that's just me. I don't always agree with him, but no one's perfect. But that's just my two cents.

Posted by: Jonathan on April 18, 2007 12:00 AM

I think Bill has a great show....and if the remark about snake handling in the south bothered you then you ARE one of the stupid rednecks he was poking fun at.Im born and raised in the south and i see no reason to trake offense to what he said....and he isnt cathlic...he is agnostic....but why let facts muddle ur redneck half assed protest

Posted by: vayne on May 11, 2007 08:19 PM

i agree with the one who posted that bill is one of the few voices of reason....anyone who cant see the reason in what he says is ignorant or too stubborn to admit it....which means your outlook is small minded and without reason....i live in the south therefor know that the south is full of ignorant rednecks...not all people but alot of them

Posted by: vayne on May 11, 2007 08:22 PM

and to the guy who stated that bill is just mad cause his guy lost and that you have power in the white actually show pride at how Bush has excuted his office?....Bush will go down in history as the worst foreign policy president in the history of this counrty....him,cheney,rice and Rumsfield should all be in jail for the useless murder of thousands of us soldiers and iraqi innocents

Posted by: vayne on May 11, 2007 08:29 PM

and to ken....this counrty has alot to be apologetic for.....whewre we were once the leaders in democracy and liberty we have become a nation of bullies and captilistic jerks....we start unjustified wars....and alienate the rest of the worlds countries....we used to be a true super we're hated thru out the world and that hatred is can we promote democracy with a president who wont abide democracy here....our people keep calling for withdrawal from iraq and he keeps vetoing can u spreadf democracy when you dont even follow the will of the people you are supposed to be representing......Bush is the biggest criminal in the counrty with countless thousands of deaths on his hands

Posted by: vayne on May 11, 2007 08:39 PM

Bill, I wrotre a letter about how this country is falling apart and how to fix it. It sends a very powerfull mesage. You should reed it.

Posted by: D.W.Seagrave on July 27, 2007 10:10 AM

Put a hat on southern man.The sun has obviously fried your brain.You're inability to desipher the english language and the meaning trying to be relayed to you is more than apparent.Mr.Mahr is just trying to wake you up to reality.FYI floatation device.Robin-Texas(in the shade)P.S.Civilized men don't perceive everything as a conflict.They evaluate and then carefully come to their conclusions after getting every bit of information availlable to them.

Posted by: robin on July 30, 2007 09:02 PM

he is just a comedian most comedians use generalizations and exagerate on stereotypes. a lot of comedians are a lot worse, too

Posted by: poo finger on August 18, 2007 05:42 PM

Slamming a great comedian who calls you out on your bullshit, elicits the standard southanuh's response "Patience, my ass: Ahm a-gonna kill somethin".
Maybe if you'd take a closer look at your leader, JC, the biggest jew of all (Bill's only 1/2 jew) & the worst prez in US history, you'd realize Bill calls em right on the mark.
Only real men lie about ballin an takes a pathetic douchebag like W to kill 3700 GI's over a lie.
By the way, I call Gainesville, Fl home, but I'm a Californicator at heart ! So Chuck-U Farley.

BILL MAHER FOR PRESEDENT, hed be better then that other idoit yall elected (prez. push, i mean bUSH

Posted by: belladonna on September 9, 2007 06:03 PM

I'll have to disagree with you on Mahr, not that I just happened to live in beautiful S. CA, but the guy is witty, to the point & uses standup to tell the truth. I like him.

His comments on the "South" are just mostly to get laughs, most people realize that the Southern, the Eastern, the Western & the Northern people all make up a strong USA.

The comment on how he should be dragged off & shot should only be stated on your HBO show, otherwise best not to reinforce the image of the "Southern" mentality?

Posted by: Kit on October 14, 2007 03:14 PM

Wow-- Bill Maher's groupies can't find anything better to do than troll two-year-old blog posts by bloggers who passed away a year ago?

Posted by: McGehee on October 28, 2007 01:50 PM

I liked his guy till monday nite,when he had to go talk shit about 911 truth like everyone who questions 911 is a nut. I dont see how anyone can look at all the evidence out there on 911. and still not have questions. It is just so mind boglin to me...

Posted by: tone25 on November 13, 2007 12:04 AM

You do understand that he is a comedian, right?

Posted by: Topski on December 5, 2007 03:06 AM

We need to fire up the oven again and throw good old Bill in.

Posted by: marie on April 16, 2008 12:57 PM

The point is that it is O.K. to bash white, tax paying, Christians no matter where their from in this great country, but God forbid anyone else is made fun of. Bill Maher is a hater disquised as a comedian with a leftist agenda to bring down America. My grandfather would have called him a commie. The only way to stop him is to cancel HBO. Yes Tone25 we know Bill`s a comedian. He`s just not freakin funny.

Posted by: Pearce on April 18, 2008 05:26 PM

I was a faithful fan of Bill Mahr's show, but since his comments about the talking snake and the Pope being a nazi,.....he can go straight to hell..........which he no doubt will, anyway, without my help. I will never watch his show again

Posted by: peter dades on April 20, 2008 02:45 PM

Bill Maur is a idiot that needs his tongue cut off! I used to watch him but he is a big waste of time!!

Posted by: Py on April 21, 2008 05:41 PM

People who feel they have no self worth are afraid of Maher's comments that make them think of an alternative world. One in which every self held tenet is questioned. The only way to learn is to be self examining and place yourself in the shoes of others. Then everything wouldn't be viewed in black and white, right or wrong. I live in Florida, as south as you can get, but I won't worry about north and south, east and west, black or white, hispanic or illegal immigrant. To do that would be to give into illogical fears that keep alive what squash you and me down economically. As long as we debate each other over minor and media driven topics we lose sight of our own worth as productive citizens in a free and open society. Both mainstream political parties and small,medium and giant corporations want this. If our minds and emotions can be misdirected we lose, THEY win. How sad will our grandchildren's lives be? But then again, they're more into Facebook then The World Book.

Posted by: bill maher fan on August 28, 2008 02:17 AM

I googled the A-hole, Bill Mahr, and found your site. I AGREE with everything you have written here. Born and raised in Georgia; live in Fl. I am NOT stupid. My husband and I have values but are NOT Religiouso-we are more spiritual. This guy is a snake. I can hear him rattle when he talks. He thinks his IQ is stellar but he is the most narrow minded biggot since Archie Bunker! HOW DARE he judge people by their geological location. I have a brilliant son living in California with a great job, he wants to leave that state so badly if he can find a good paying job and return to his roots in the South, Destin, where a lot of people would love to retire to. What about the Northern rednecks. There are stupid people everywhere and a very HIGH concentration of them in CA. I think one day God will probably give them the big one (earthquake) while the whole state is burning. I don't wish that on them but damn. They are such a holier than thou people of no faith and so very, very full of sin.

Posted by: barbara3d on October 26, 2008 12:50 PM

I don't watch Bill Maur. It seems that anything that comes out of his mouth I oppose. He was on Jay Leno (who I'm beginning to ban)
He said on the show that he supported the inheritance tax because it was taxing a dead
person. Good example of a City persons logic. He doesn't understand how many small family farms this tax puts into bankruptsy. Did you ever notice that the blue states are the ones that have big cities (NYC,LA,Seattle,Chicago,etc)
