People are bad and crazy across the political spectrum.

Those seeking to politicize it are just displaying their own hate and biases.
Yet the statistics simply don't bear out this even-Stephen idea.

Far left? Was he even political at all?

If Trump is not responsible for all the crap he spews (as the faithful claim), one can hardly attack a comedian, who is being laughed at on purpose.
There is so much logic in this post that I doubt lunatics would be able to comprehend it.

Far left because he cared about the environment and liked Liz Warren? Did the far left inspire him to kill his sister? I don't think so. Did that kid leave a ranting document quoting Bill Maher?

El Paso murderer and others actually quote Trump--he inspired them. So give us a break about Bill Maher inspiring lonely weirdos to shoot people. He's telling it like it is. He is not being PC. Thought the cult was good with that. I'm not worried that Maher is provoking crazies sitting in their bunkers. Everything provokes them.

Are libs not the ones who have helped destroy the family and the church, two major sources of socialization for our society?

Don't destroy the social aspects of society that provide some stability and then complain about the result!

Shockingly, you might want to understand that people have different opinions than you, it doesn't at all mean they lack logic.

The "don't watch" comment is ridiculous. The video was posted here for discussion, people shared their opinions, if you don't like their opinions, don't listen? Is that how you want things to work?

It doesn't matter if you don't think people are sitting there watching live, because these are the kinds of videos that get passed around in groups of people who fall into some of those categories. Do they care that he is a comedian? Probably not. Will it impact them negatively? Probably. Are they 100% mentally stable? Probably not. Do we already know that many of these shooters have mental issues? Most likely they do.

His "comedy" and "satire" is presented as a news show whether you like it or not. And he does in fact highlight important issues, with thoughtful and unique perspectives sometimes, so dismiss it as just satire is ignorant.

This has nothing to do with Trump and his hate, the thread is about Mahr.

Oh come on...you got to be kidding.

The US has by far one the highest homicide rates among the OECD countries. Only Turkey, Mexico and Estonia "best" us on this stat.

https://www.businessinsider.com/oecd...s-chart-2015-6

Countries like Denmark, France, Norway, the Netherlands, etc. have far lower homicide rates, LOWER church attendance and similar rates or higher rates of out-of-wedlock births than the US.

The internet, video games and mental illness exist in all those countries as well.
