Maher: Unlike Syria, U.S. ‘Gassing People’ w CO2; GOPers Are ‘Stupid’

Science marches on: climate change-induced drought caused the Syrian civil war, CO2 is a poisonous gas, but Republicans are stupid.

On Friday’s Real Time on HBO, far left comedian Bill Maher hyperbolically likened Syrian dictator Bashar Assad gassing people to death with chemical weapons to the United States “gassing them” “slower with CO2” as he fretted over global warming.

He also mocked Republicans as “stupid” for not believing in global warming, and, as he interviewed author Hanna Rosin, he lambasted men as “whiny little bitches.”

About 11 minutes into the show, as Rosin recalled the societal trend toward more women getting college degrees and making higher salaries than men, noting that men “don’t like to work in health care, and they definitely don’t like to work for the government,” the liberal HBO host snarked: “Of course, right, because they’re whiny little bitches. You know, this is, I mean, I used to, all through the campaign, I called Trump that, the ‘whiny little bitch,’ and people loved it. It really caught on.”

Moments later, he engaged in more apparent self-hating sentiments as he added: “Men, you think ‘macho,’ ‘We’re so strong and sturdy.’ But really they are whiny little bitches. I mean, who is more of a little bitch than Donald Trump? ”

At 10:17 p.m. ET, at the beginning of the panel segment, he then took aim at the intelligence of Republicans as he recalled the “March for Science.” Maher:

There’s a “March for Science” in Washington and 400 cities tomorrow. I hope you join that. The Republicans have a competing “March for Ignorance” that’s going on. Sorry, S.E., but, you know what, it is the party of climate denial, and they have an awful lot to answer for.

Maher then compared carbon dioxide emissions to a chemical weapon attack by the United States as he soon added:

The Syrian problem started with climate change. It did — 75 percent of Syrian farms failed. A million and a half people migrated to the cities. That’s where it began.

And, by the way, these people who are starving, which is, you know, whether you’re bombed or you’re sarin gassed or you’re starving, death is death. But, I mean, we talk about Assad gassing people, we’re gassing them, too. We’re just doing it slower with CO2.

Moments later, he made his first crack about Republicans being “stupid,” although he initially dismissed his comment as just joking around: “Let’s get back to the main topic: Why are Republicans so stupid? That, I think, was our main — no, I kid of course.”

After right-leaning CNN political commentator S.E. Cupp warned him that calling Republicans “dumb” is a “bad strategy,” Maher remarked that “I half agree with that” as he added: “Because I want the Democrats to win.”

But, moments later, he was back to characterizing Republicans as “stupid” again. As Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton argued that people “aren’t just stupid,” Maher injected: “They’re stupid, too.” The HBO host then exclaimed:

But that’s the problem! You can’t deny that global warming is happening, but then say, “But don’t call us stupid.” That’s the little dilemma I’m in. It’s like, “Don’t call me stupid!” Well, then, don’t be stupid!

    I’m just fine with Maher being the face of America’s new left. Arrogant, condescending, bitter, viscous, ill-informed, entitled… He projects to his own tribe of socialist sycophants and is haled by the left-media, but outside of that leftist bubble Bill is seen by other Americans as an attitudinal visage of any socialist government to come.

    Stupid id thinking that plant food is harming people. When in fact the only measurable effect of increased Co2 is higher crop yields. Strangely the IPCC “predicted” the opposite would happen…

    As for Bill’s Straw Man about “denying” Climate Change. No one does. We all know the Climate has constantly changed…

    So how about the actual scientific method getting applied to all of the IPCC’s failed model predictions? Cause the so called “March for Science” wasn’t about science.

    All of the IPCC’s climate predictions have been invalidated by observations.

    Some eco-wackos say if they had the chance to save a bug or a child many said they would rather save the bug which gives details of of their enviromental fanatasism and the dangers of Deep Ecology as well as their backward pagan religion of ecology

      I would like to see all these climate fanatics crawl back into the primordial swamp and try to re-evolve as half decent humans. Better hurry though, before the swamp is drained.

    Is Bill M so dense that he does nor know that humans exhale about 40,000ppm of CO2 every breath? [therefore kill all humans].
    Also, we will have shut down all the breweries, soda pop bottlers; and bakeries; for putting a”pollutant” into our food and beverages.
    Plus get rid of ALL fire extinguishers, immediately.
    What a moron he is.

    Whining Maher is looking for attention. Remember that he once called the 9-11 suicide hijacker mass murderers brave.
