Yeah, I’m going to keep this post short today, son. I mean, in reality, there isn’t much that needs to be said here. All in all, Bill Maher is a fucking idiot, man. To be clear, I don’t want to hear shit about free speech or the fact that he’s a comedian. Frankly, Maher made a highly inappropriate comment and thought he could get away with it. With that being said, he now knows the gravity of his arrogance.
Now, for anyone who missed it, Maher was interviewing Senator Ben Sasse on the Friday edition of his Real Time show. While speaking about Halloween in his native Nebraska, Sasse expressed that the holiday was “frowned upon” in his state. From there, Maher said that he needed to visit Nebraska more. Next, when Sasse invited Maher to “work in the fields” with them, Maher said “Senator, I’m a house nigger.”
Ok, so, let me get this straight. A White guy is having a conversation with another White guy, the word “fields” is brought up and a slavery reference is made? So, why the fuck should anybody be cool with this? Look, does anybody defending Maher even know what a house nigger was? Well, here’s a quick history lesson for everyone reading this.
So, a house nigger was a slave who served the master in the house. They cooked for the master, cleaned for the master and took care of the master’s kids. In a number of cases, house niggers had lighter skin than the typical African slave. This came as a result of frequent sexual assaults perpetrated by masters on their slaves. In addition, a portion of house niggers ended up “loving” their masters because they didn’t have to deal with the backbreaking work in the fields.
With all of that being said, why the FUCK should anyone give Maher a pass, man?! Shit, if he made a Holocaust reference, I highly doubt anyone would claim it was “just a joke.” Man, since when were White people allowed to make slavery jokes anyway? Look, descendants of the oppressor don’t get to liken themselves to the oppressed. Ultimately, Maher was cocky enough to think he could get away with his ignorant ass joke. For that, I don’t accept his half-assed apology. Fam, he only did it to stay on HBO‘s good side.
In the end, I guess I lied about keeping this post short. Listen, I couldn’t help myself, man. Bill Maher is a fucking asshole, bruh. He’s a prime example of a “pretentious liberal.” Look, just because we agree on some political points doesn’t mean he can just jump out the window like that. By and by, Maher just needs to shut the fuck up. I mean, he was never that funny anyway. LC out.
