I'm not upset. I'm glad he said it in a political sense, it only helps Republicans.

I think many liberals are like Maher. They claim to be tolerant, civil, just, intelligent people but they are hostile stupid people.

We are supposed to take advice from this hater on things like global warming? I don't think so.

"Maher is a comedian and entertainer.....", but right leaning comedians and entertainers being attacked for what they say is OK!

The usual double standard exposed by the left! Sean Spicer is a prime example.

He only hates snowflakes in the context he hates losing to Republicans and he knows snowflakes don't help.

But his style also doesn't help and the snowflakes say caustic stuff like this too.

Snowflake isn't the right word for the liberal censors. They are bullies and fascists. If they were only highly sensitive people, they would be ok.

I'm not advocating for Maher being fired....I am only pointing out that there was a time a comment like this would get the person fired.

#Civility
#Tolerance

Back in the day, a comment like this would get a person fired from a tv show. He's gonna get a pay raise because he's serving up that red meat hate for HBO's liberal audience.
Interesting, given both Maher and Koch identify as primarily Libertarian.

I like to think that I dont wish death on anybody. And for the most part, it is true. But if I am being honest with myself, if I heard Farrakhan or David Duke died, it would bring a smile to my face.

I dont agree with him at all on this, but if that is the way he seeís the Kochís I guess I cant really call him out for it.

Huh? You mean Soros? Good to see others can see the damage that they have wrought. All these climate change deniers are supported by the Koch brothers and their army of lobbyists fueling ignorance. Time to conserve, conservatives! Before itís too late.
