Bill Maher Calls GOP "Party Of Apes" In Segue To Allen West Rant
Imagine the outrage if a right-wing celebrity called Democrats the "Party of Apes" for standing by Obama...
From Bill Maher's own blog:
Also because the idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horseshit and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it. Or as I like to call it, “The Rise of the Party of the Apes.”
Or take Allen West. Seriously, take him to the padded cell and give him 20 CCs of the high test. Ornstein and Mann start off their Post op-ed by noting that recently Rep. Allen West said that there are “78 to 81” Democrats in Congress who are members of the Communist Party. And not one Republican said, “Allen, come on. You’re making us look dumb.” Not one of the Republican candidates for president said anything. Because in today’s Republican Party, that’s not even edgy anymore. They probably saw him later on and were like, “Word, Allen. Word.” Because that’s how they think black people talk.

Of course, I don't think Maher used "apes" in a racist sort of way. Just in an "Uncle Tom" sort of way. You see, liberals only hate Conservative black people. They support and agree with liberal black people, especially those who are "clean" and "articulate." No. Matter. What. That makes them not racist.
And it makes everyone else, by default, racists.
