Bill Maher said Friday, "Republicans don't care about dead Mexicans."
This came moments after he admitted on HBO's Real Time he didn't know anything about the controversial White House mission known as Fast and Furious "until this week" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
BILL MAHER: I mentioned the Fast and Furious in the monologue and I really didn't explain it to people who don't know. And by the way, I was one of those people until this week who didn't know.
Why doesn’t it surprise me a dunce like Bill Maher didn’t know what Fast and Furious was until this week?
And this guy is propped up by the liberal media as being a well-informed intellect people should listen to.
Makes you sick, doesn’t it? But I digress:
MAHER: I heard that term Fast and Furious. It's not the movie, by the way. It's the name of an operation that the feds were indulging in to try to trace guns. They were purposely selling them to Mexican drug dealers. By the way, Darrell Issa, who’s head of the committee that just held Holder in contempt, he was here about a year ago and he said to me back stage before the show, “Are you going to talk about Fast and Furious?” And I said, “I don't really like Vin Diesel.”
Amazing. Maher was actually flaunting his ignorance like a badge of honor, and his liberal audience including MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow were laughing.
I guess stupidity is something to be revered on the Left. That shouldn't be surprising since they do so much in this country to make sure the education system is sub-par.
As such, why shouldn’t they highly regard a television host admitting that until last week, he had no idea about a White House operation to give guns to Mexican drug dealers that cost at least two American lives?
But I once again digress:
MAHER: I didn’t know what he was talking about. This is the two worlds that we live in. I always say they live in a bubble.
“They” live in a bubble?
Maher just admitted he had no idea about this significant covert operation being run by the American government, and he had the nerve to accuse those investigating it as living “in a bubble”:
MAHER: Anyway, Darrell Issa says this is a giant scandal. I’ve heard on Fox News this week it's worse than Watergate because 200 Mexicans have died. First of all, let me just say Republicans don't care about dead Mexicans. “A,” and “B,” I think those 200 dead Mexicans would be dead even if we hadn't sold them guns. They would have gotten the guns somewhere else. So is it really a scandal?
Let's add up Maher's score.
First, he admitted not knowing anything about Fast and Furious until this week.
Then, he flaunted his ignorance on national television.
Next, he wore it like a badge of honor only to finally belittle Republicans for not only living in a bubble but also not caring about dead Mexicans despite it being conservatives that have been talking about and investigating this failed mission for over two years while being stonewalled by Democrats.
And this man has his own nationally televised show.
Makes you wonder what country you live in, doesn't it?
