Please Tase Them, Bro! What’s With Heckling Bill Maher?

Not only do I not watch TV anymore (or, so far), I haven’t had premium cable for years. So I missed that some morons out there are, for some reason, heckling Maher about Kucinich or 9/11 or how crappy the reception from Mars is since their aluminum foil hats got dinged. Check out this HuffPo link to his recent appearance on Leno. The piece has lots of other great links to Maher-hating, too. Definitely check the one where he personally leaves the stage to help security give these orifices the bum’s rush. Their mamas didn’t raise them right and certainly didn’t raise them to be intelligent cuz Maher’s the wrong hombre to f with, intellectually or physically. I love his line to security: “Don’t be gentle with them. Ass-kicking is what’s called for.”

There’s a time and a place for everything, protest included, and a talk show audience is neither.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
