Bill Maher Thinks Libertarians Have Left Him

BILL MAHER: Libertarians have to stop ruining libertarianism, or at least do a better job explaining the difference between today's libertarian and just being a selfish prick.

This man is a blatant liar and whore.
If he ever was a libertarian I'll eat my hat.

"You only live free if your willing to die free."

Bill Maher thinks?

This is news to me, every time I saw the guy he was simply mouthing words and mimicking what a rational human being might say if he was in a state of moderate dementia.

But seriously speaking, Bill Maher has about as much to do with Libertarianism as Glenn Beck does.

“My attitude toward progress has passed from antagonism to boredom. I have long ceased to argue with people who prefer Thursday to Wednesday because it is Thursday.” - G.K. Chesterton

Like Bill Maher is anything but a rich celeb with opinions?

Catchy one liners, selling nothing but PERSONALITY, cheerleading for the masses, cute little smirk, so obviously smarter than everybody else that haughty condescention is hightened to an art form, a repetitive art form the audience finds so PREDICTABLE, so reassuring. Yeah, me and Bill Maher, we know what's goign on, stricking a blow for the little guy.

This nation would elect him president by refferendum in a heartbeat. Recall that most voters pick the one that "seems like a nice guy" or "has our best interests at heart" or "really cares".

Bill Maher has no ideology but himself, his constitution is written in the mirror. He's no more libertarian than a hyena and yet he's enshrined in his own mind. Hey, his audience always laughs and claps so how can he be wrong?

It's all about ratings and that makes him, Bill Maher, the KING of libertarians.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

I didn't know they were ever

with him...

Ever notice..

Everything is always so extreme in politics? Its always the extreme or exagerated point of view that is pushed. Never a halfway..

According to Bill.. we must have laws that penalize people so they don't go flying through windshields.

I lost faith in this guy after the 08 election. I used to admire his wit and tenacity. Now.. he's just a version of Bill O Reilly.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Those that speak the loudest.

Will always be the first to be heard. Good or bad.

It's easy to figure out Bill

1. Look in the mirror if you want to see a selfish prick
2. Read a book by Ron Paul if you want to understand "today's" libertarian. (Or go to Mises.org)
Problem solved.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy

Bill just called....

He told me to tell you, "racists".


haha...of course he did!

Oh really. I didn't think we

Oh really. I didn't think we ever joined him.

I keep expecting these people

I keep expecting these people to be as smart as they should be, given their position. But they never are. They have good grammar. And that's about it. Bill Maher is a professional douche bag. His honorary MENSA membership does not impress.

His first mistake is saying

His first mistake is saying that Paul Ryan is a libertarian. Not even close.

Then, he insinuates Ron and Rand are libertarians. I don't really think they are. Rand has some neo=conish tendencies, and Ron Paul is a typical 50s conservative...he disagrees with federal action, not state or local action.

That too, you have to differentiate between the libertarians who want to deal with taxes, civil rights, etc. and the more anarchist libertarians who get angry at the existence of STOP signs.

Libertarians were never with

Libertarians were never with Bill Maher. He's a cad.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Ron Paul owns Bill Maher


While Maher is not cavorting at the Playboy bunny mansion, he spouts the same nonsense as the neocons, statists and leftists changing colors like a chameleon depending on what costume will best hide his true fakery. He spoke of Ron Paul as “my new hero,” but he speaks with a forked tongue, not to be believed or trusted as a shill for corporate media. I agree with others comments here that he is a hypocrite of the first order.

He says let’s legalize marijuana but labels a libertarian as a “selfish prick” while Obama shuts down the medical marijuana industry so cancer patients can’t get relief.

I think Bill is confusing

I think Bill is confusing liberals like himself with libertarians.

Its unfortunate

that I know many young people, younger than myself, (I'm 29) that watch this tool and think he's cool.

    We know this guy is not a friend to liberty. How about we just stop giving him, and people like him, airtime on the DP and focus on real issues. He is straight up bought and paid for propaganda. He is not a part of a debate of ideas in any real sense of the words.

    I am down voting this post and others like it from now on.

    Freaking unreal.

    He talks about "this movement" like he has something to do with it? Where did "this movement" go under Bill Maher's leadership? Cause I'm really having trouble remembering.

    Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

    Typical Liberal

    Typical ridiculous arguments mis-characterizing libertarianism.

    I never was with him.

    He's Hollywood and just tries to be controversial and shock people. And he's an IDIOT for thinking Paul Ryan is Libertarian....anyone can read Ayn Rand.

    Monkey see, monkey do.

    Over the years, I watched Maher's shows and when a friend got front row tickets, I even saw his live show at the College of DuPage.

    He claimed to be a libertarian three (3) times and a few minutes later went on to guffaw about gun rights.

    He has embraced inductive fallacies as a modus operandi and has made a career out of making them "cute".

    Most Libertarians I know spend time trying to rationally figure things out, in part, so they don't find themselves at a cocktail party exposed as a hypocrite.

    Bill Maher has no compunction about being found out as being a world class hypocrite.

    He's one of those bipeds who thinks that because he has opposing thumbs, he is a human.

    Your assessment of the man is PERFECT.
