Is there anyone on television more distasteful than Bill Maher?
The liberal HBO talk show host has done it again, this time insulting the U.S. military
Here’s what the so-called comedian had to say on his March 27 HBO show:
“Forget about bringing the troops home Iraq – we need to get the troops home from World War II,” Maher said. “Can anybody tell me why in 2009, we still have more than 50,000 troops in Germany and 30,000 in Japan? At some point these people are going to have to learn to rape themselves.”
The insults continued, but let’s get to the response from former Army Staff Sergeant David Bellavia, author of “House to House.” He’s already won a Silver Star and a Bronze Star and has been recommended for the Medal of Honor.
“While Democrats want to accuse the right in America of being hijacked by the talking points of Rush Limbaugh and talk radio,” Bellavia noted, “it is more than a little odd to me that the greatest minds on the left today are community organizers, washed up former sports commentators and stand up comedians. It’s insensitive and hurtful.”
“The fact is that the German people would be the first to protest our leaving their country,” Bellavia continued. “Areas like Vilseck would have no economy without American business and young foolish soldiers emptying their bank accounts on the German local scene.”
The Fallujah veteran said he wasn’t surprised by Maher remarks and explained many on the left like Maher don’t understand the concept of military service.
“Maher’s comments are nothing surprising to me,” Bellavia said. “Newsflash – the left doesn’t get the military. They don’t understand how a person can see something bigger then themselves. And the vast majority of liberals have zero idea of what we face overseas and moreover, cannot understand any situation that could possibly involve taking the life at war. They never have. And they never will.”
Funny thing is, there’s probably some Taliban with a satellite dish outside his cave in Waziristan keeping track of which western “comedians” will be the first to be eliminated when they take over.
Maher’s only hope is that he’s so completely unfunny that the Taliban never figure out he’s a supposed to be a comedian.
