Maher: ‘European Socialism Works’

Posted on | September 27, 2010 | 17 Comments

Ed Driscoll featured this Newsbusters video in which Andrew Breitbart brilliantly nails Bill Maher who, for the past 15 years, has tried to claim he’s some kind of libertarian. As no libertarian could possibly support ObamaCare, however . . .

Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters has the transcript:

ANDREW BREITBART: So you’re, you’re officially not a Libertarian anymore, right? I mean, this position…
MAHER: Well..
BREITBART: …has run so far from the Libertarian position. Is this, so you admit that you have more of a, you know, European socialist leaning perspective on this issue?
(AUDIENCE LAUGHTER)
BREITBART: Why is that funny?
MAHER: I’m, I’m not afraid, it’s not, I’m not afraid to say European socialism works.

Maher is not a libertarian and never was. He is a deformed personality. His political incoherence is a mere reflection of his twisted mind, as I wrote in April 2009: “Bill Maher hates himself. And can you blame him?”

    I’ve always wondered how Bill Maher got his gig. He’s never been even remotely funny, as far as I’m concerned. I can only reckon that he’s either got callouses on his knees or he wears knee pads, plus he’s got that kind of “lippy” look, if ya catch my drift. ;)

    Oh, Euro-Douche socialism works. As long as you’re a member of a favored class, everything is golden. If you’re not part of that 4% upper crust, well…

    Bill Maher is a hedonist, he just isn’t that deep a personality to figure out boys :)

    In what sense has European Socialism been a success? Someone needs to pin Billy down on that question.

    I always saw Maher as a crank. Sort of like Clint Eastwood in Gran Torino but with 1/16th the charm. He also wouldn’t know how to defend his property since he obviously believes the government should own it.

    He’s a wimp and irrelevant in my world.
