Bill Maher Goes Full-Bore Anti-Semitic


“Based on every statement out of any Republican in the last two years,” Bill Maher said on HBO’s Real Time on Friday night, “the Israelis are controlling our government.” It’s not the first time the formerly-funny-jester-dwarf-turned-partisan-hack has gone off the deep end on Israel. It’s just the most obvious anti-Semitic canard to emerge from his potty-mouth.

Maher was referring, of course, to the political story that has brought all the leftist anti-Semites rushing from the woodwork: the hold-up of Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel, he of the “Jewish lobby” hatred and the anti-Israel isolationism. Said Maher:

What is it about him that’s suspicious? He voted for the Iraq war, he voted for the Afghanistan war, he voted for the Patriot Act, he voted for Homeland Security, Star Wars, he’s a right-wing Republican and that’s not good enough?

Sitting by and watching this ridiculous charade was Vice Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee. Brazile interjected: “Bill, what they’re doing is going after every speech.” When Jamie Weinstein of The Daily Caller explained that one of those speeches may have contained Hagel ripping the State Department as a wing of the Israeli Foreign ministry, Maher dropped the “Israel-controls-our-government” bombshell. Brazile sat there and said nothing. In fact, her next remarks were in defense of Hagel: “They keep changing the goalposts, Bill.”

To oppose certain policies of the State of Israel is not anti-Semitic. Everyone has done it based on the administration in Israel, which changes, as it does in every democracy. But to suggest moral equivalence between the democratic, casualty-minimizing Israelis, and the fascistic, terrorizing Palestinians is anti-Semitic. To suggest that Israel controls American foreign policy is conspiratorial anti-Semitic nonsense. And it’s dangerous nonsense at that.

Maher doesn’t have a consistent pattern of this kind of messaging. His message varies with his audience – in an interview with the Los Angeles Jewish Journal in November, he defended Israel’s rights to defend itself against Hamas rockets … although one suspects that that defense has more to do with Barack Obama’s tepid support for Israel’s Gaza action than Maher’s own inherent sympathy for Israel.

And that’s the danger.

The left now follows President Obama’s lead with the devotion of a pack of well-trained hound dogs. If he is anti-Israel, they are anti-Israel. If he is not, they are not. (He is never pro-Israel, so that point of view is obviated.)

Thus Brazile’s tolerance for Maher’s anti-Semitic diatribe. President Obama has nominated a Secretary of Defense who clearly is an anti-Semite, and Brazile defends that pick because it’s Obama’s pick. And Hollywood, which has a higher-than-average representation of Jews, remains silent. Imagine if Maher had made this comment about the gay lobby in Washington – the Hollywood crowd would have gone berserk. But when he suggests that the Elders of Zion run the American government, it’s treated as normal not just by Brazile, but by the Hollywood Jewish left, which values its leftism over its Judaism.

Because leftism is the true Hollywood religion, the number of self-hating Jews or atheists of Jewish origin here is skyrocketing. Jewishness is now seen as a charming rite of passage or a way to identify as non-white, a moral shield against charges of being part of the dominant demographic strain in America. But Judaism as a coherent religion and philosophy is seen as a mockery, a joke, the basis for intolerance and inhumanity. Which is why, at root, leftism must reject Judaism, and thus the legitimacy of the State of Israel.

With his re-election won, Barack Obama is doing just that. He’s being followed by the typical left, and the Hollywood left. And the Hollywood Jewish left is saying nothing. As usual.

    Ben Shapiro's Judaism is commensurate and compatible with the Judaism of the Jews that participated in the founding of the Republic. Those Jews are as the Conservative Jews of today: a national asset and a light among peoples.

    • Questions

      There were some Jews who were Founders — mainly Sephardic Jews who arrived and settled in Charleston, S.C. and Newport, R.I. — but they were a minor force. The main Jewish influence on our country was transmitted via allies such as George Washington and John Adams.

      In the end, the Jewish homeland is Israel, not America.

      • UraFecalLiberal

        <<In the end, the Jewish homeland is Israel, not America. >>

        No dispute of the above. However, in no other country save American have Jews done so well for so long, and been unprosecuted. And without America, there will be no Israel in the future.

      AIPAC has not campaigned against Hagel – so you might try checking your facts before hitting the keyboard.

      As for U.S. government aid to Israel – weapons are PAID FOR. The real taxpaying funded aid goes to anti Israeli organisations (as it does with European Union money) operating in Israel.

      Fork – if there was actually an end to U.S. government AID (as opposed to arms sales) to Israel, I think you would find that "right wing Israelis" would be overjoyed (as it is the internal enemies of Israel who get the taxpayer money).

      By the way by "anti intellectual" you, of course, mean "anti Progressive" – as collecticvism (the whole "social justice" agenda) has been so successful (all round the world) that only a true "intellectual" (one of the children of Plato) could still believe in it.

    • stern

      "reign terror on brown people" ???

      And there you have it, the roots of your idiocy. The Arabs might not like being referred to as "brown". In fact, you might also be surprised to discover that there are many "non-White" Jewish people in Israel. So by trying to paint this as a purely racist conflict driven by some kind of white ubermensch mentality, all you succeed in doing is displaying your own ignorance as completely as possible.

      Perhaps it might be advisable to educate yourself before posting on this site again.

      Great post. Despite the assurance of the Amen Corner, the relationship with israel has not real advantage to the US. When it really matters, they did not deliver vital intelligence that could have saved American live:USS Cole, 911, WMD's in Iraq. They want to siphon money from the US and brand anyone that criticize them as antisemitic. Now, they even besmirched people who have shed blood for their country. No shame.

      • Phil

        There are some responders who are hopelesslyconfused by Islamic and leftist propaganda. A few actually know the real facts but are so viciously antisemitic that they feel no guilt in lying. WhateverMan is different in that he feelsno guiltabout writing lies about Israel. The sociopath accuses Israel of witholding information about 9-11, WMD's in Iraq, and the USS Cole—- all despicable lies. Any human being with a normal intelligence can easily discover that Israel warned the US against going to war against Iraq. Funny that the intelligence service of the UK also agreed that there were WMD's in Iraq and yet whateverMan doesn't seem concerned. His citing of 9-11 and the Cole just shows what a pathetic, paranoid, and stupid liar he and his ilk are.

        • WhateverMan

          i didn't say withholding. that would give the too much credit. i don't think they had it in the first place. For all the hyped special relationship that justifies the money the US gives to israel, I would say it is a bad investment and a liability.
          and the UK doesn't get billions in aid from the US.
          And Israel did not warn the US, you liar. Bibi was in front of a US committee encouraging Bush to finish Irak and than move on to Iran and Syria.

          • stern

            Huh? You said Israel "did not deliver" vital intelligence that could have prevented 9/11 and USS Cole. Wow. Talk about finding any excuse – and I do mean ANY – to blame the Jews for everything.

This accusation has been used to stir up hatred of Jews throughout history, the most famous of it of course being the Shoah. ____"And why do we send them billion dollars of aid again?" Has it ever crossed your mind that if Israel really secretly ran the US, we wouldn't be sending BILLIONS of dollars to Palestine, or any other Islamist Nation for that matter? ____Rachel Corrie- Committed suicide by laying down in front of a Bull Dozer. ____Johnathan Pollard – Was sentenced to 10 years for his crimes, almost 25 years ago and is still in prison. ____USS Liberty – Israel apologized for the attack, saying that the USS Liberty had been attacked in error after being mistaken for an Egyptian ship. Both the Israeli and U.S. governments conducted inquiries and issued reports that concluded the attack was a mistake due to Israeli confusion about the ship's identity, though others, including survivors of the attack, have rejected these conclusions and maintain that the attack was deliberate.____

    Bill Maher is popular and exceptionally comfortable financially. That's what matters to him. His blinding Leftism and Obama worship merely further bolster his shallow self-esteem and cocksure loudmouth confidence.

    Maher is fond of criticizing Judaism and Christianity but is notably tight-lipped when it comes to criticizing Islam. The true mark of cowardice and hollow integrity. Typical.

    • WildJew

      Maher can be fairly confident no Jew or Christian will behead him for criticizing Judaism or Christianity.

    • Questions

      That's simply false. I saw "Religulous" when it came out in 2008 and Maher most certainly did skewer Islam. On two occasions as a matter of fact. You obviously didn't see the movie or any of his TV shows where he denounces Islam.

        He also completely fails to skewer Judaism in whatever way he might find to do that, which if he was actually following his touted thesis that ALL religions are, in his words, "cuckoo", he would most certainly do. In fact Maher is much more protective of Judaism than the other religions and he certainly does not hold back when it comes to Islam. You only need to watch his show to see that. The most lame bit of his movie Religulous is in fact when he protects the orthodox (small 'o') political view on Israel by failing to give an Orthodox Jew the time of day for arguing that having a Jewish state is in fact anti-Judaic, just talking over the guy witlessly and ending the conversation abruptly. This was completely unlike the rest of the movie where his skewering of the other religions is delivered with flourish and wit. So how Omar can say he is fond of criticizing Judaism is beyond me. Yes, if you happen to be an an anti Israel Orthodox Jew – that's about it.

Just saying. It sort of takes the whole argument off the deep end and looks desperate.

      It can't be done. The U.S. State Department has quite a tradition of anti-Semitism.(John Foster Dulles comes immediately to mind) To state that the "Israel lobby controls the U.S. state department," is not only 100% false, its a pathological lie, and the mark of a sick mind. Yes. Bill actually did this.

        No Bill Maher did not say anything like that. He said that according to the Republicans, Israel controls the US government. He's actually one of the very few liberals who's consistently defended Israel.

        There are plenty of examples on YouTube of him defending Israel. There's also an interview he did with Benjamin Netanyahu.

    • WildJew

      Maybe, but the idea that Jews control world governments, economies, etc. comes from the Elders of Zion. Doesn't it? Why did Maher say it if he does't believe it? Why does he engage in this vicious conspiracy mongering? Why would he support this anti-Semite?

    • Matt UK

      No the comparison is pretty apt. America is a democracy and a lot of Americans like and value Israel as a democratic country and as a loyal ally. Such people rightly get upset when the future secretary of defence complains about the "Jewish lobby". When Maher interprets this as Israel "controlling" the US, he is talking about secret cabals and worldwide hidden Jewish power. He's a nut job.

        • traeh

          scott and Mary Sue, you are both partly right, I think.

          I consider myself half-Jewish, because I carry some Jewish traditions and cultural characteristics from my father. From my mother I carry some Christian traditions. Both of those traditions and cultures are part of who I am. So while from one or another point of view, it might be considered misconceived, nevertheless I consider myself half-Jewish, half Christian. Sometimes I consider myself all Jewish and all Christian simultaneously. I'm sort of a Jew for Jesus and a Christian for the Jews. My religion I suppose is Christianity. But I love Jewish people and feel proud I have some share in them, and I'm not about to give it up.

          When I was a child, my parents celebrated both Christmas and Channakuh (more Christmas). We celebrated Passover once in a while. (As a child, I used to think that Thanksgiving was a Jewish holiday, because my Jewish grandparents always made Thanksgiving dinner.

      So you have an issue with American Jews exercising their Constitutional rights to petition their own government. Do you have an issue with anybody else that you want to violate their Constitutional rights as well? Or are you just an anti-Semite?

    Given the attitudes of Bill Maher and Donna Brazile, together with unknown numbers of the legions of Obama fanatics, perhaps when the United States finally falls Barack Obama will be the Man on Horseback who will become our Beloved Leader.

    • Jim_C

      Nah, I think we'll last out his term, and three years on, we won't be hearing too much from Barack.

      But I'll tell you what, thanks to many decades of putting off dealing with our health care system, when things finally change, and they will soon enough, things are going to get very, very interesting, and elections are going to take on a different cast for it.

      Stay healthy, people!

      • trickyblain

        I doubt things will really hit the fan because of Obama's gift to insurance companies. I think it will be more like Civil Rights — a bitterly contentious issue at the time, but 30-40 years later, everyone seems to claim credit.

How bizarre that Hollywood is deemed to be Jew-controlled when the original moguls adapted to populism/progressivism and the glorification of the common man, as either victim or gangster rebel. It was a very gentile thing to do at the time.

  • marios

    Leftists are overfull with hatred all who does not share their commies view. They are thirsty for Power forever and socialism is as totalitarian regime is exactly what they need. What is underline for Maher and other leftist villain is money. Power and money but the mask it by care about poor, about destitute….They are always on side of barbarians who kill innocents but never on side of their victims. When I see Maher I think only that he belongs to psychiatric clinic. How people can see him normal, is puzzle for me. Israel is only democracy in ME and only one real ally in ME at least. One of high rank CIA general said that intelligence which Israel provide USA is 5 times worth financial aid our country provide that country. Israel is on the first line in battle with Islamo-Nazism which have goal to conquer all the world. Islamo-Nazis are proclaiming "Islam will dominate in the world". Israel destiny is our country destiny and all Western civilization destiny. World would be much better and cleaner without such villain as Maher.

  • Jim_C

    There could be something to this…Arabs are semitic, too, right? Ever hear Maher on Islam?

    Yes Ben Shapiro, some criticism of Israel is Anti-Semitic. But calling Obama a Muslim-loving, Kenyan born
    out of this country who hates "America," (i.e., White America) and who also wants to "weaken the welfare work requirement" and give people (i.e., black and brown people) "free stuff."

    A series of questions. Which government stops another government when it gains an edge in combat operations?
    Which goverment wants the other government to remove defensive walls?
    Which government wants the other geovernment to relinquish land?
    Which government puts pressure on the other government to stop settlement building?
    And, which government is controlling the other government?
    The answers are clear enough.
    Iff you believe Israel is controlling the US, why are the Israelis so bad at it?

    • WhateverMan

      There is a difference between "want" and "make":
      A series of questions. Which government stops another government when it gains an edge in combat operations? What you call combat operations, the world calls war crimes and crimes against humanity.
      Which goverment wants the other government to remove defensive walls? The US, as the main benefactor, has not been able to make israel do anything that israel does not want, even if it is agains international law.
      Which government wants the other geovernment to relinquish land? Stolen land is not relinquished but restituted. The US has been able to stop any significant international sanction. It;s like a molestor not going to jail because he knows the sheriff.
      Which government puts pressure on the other government to stop settlement building?
      And, which government is controlling the other government?
      The answers are clear enough.
      Iff you believe Israel is controlling the US, why are the Israelis so bad at it? They are excellent at it. Hagel, a man who risked his life for his own country may not be able serve it once more, because someone in tel aviv doesn't like what he said…

    its always safe to criticize israel and jews or to say the most racist things about them because retaliation is non existent.

    It's irrelevant whether Maher is half Jewish or half Christian or half liberal or full liberal. He is first and foremost, an idiot. A Supreme idiot. He's also a mysoginistic moron who shouldn't have one single female in his audience. He's the kind of "anchor" that makes us want Peter Jennings back (although one shouldn't badmouth the departed ones, even if they were obnoxious biased self-important nobodies), or that makes appear lesbian Rachel Madcow not such a disgusting jerk after all. But if Jennings or Madcow could get their programs, why couldn't Maher get his? All three stooges are in the same league.

  • WhateverMan

    Some people might be confusing me with someone who cares about being labelled an antisemite because he criticizes Israel. Well let me brush up my credentials as an antisemite:
    I don't believe that israel withheld information related to attacks against the US, not that they would be above doing such a thing (USS Liberty), BUT BECAUSE THEIR INTELLIGENCE SERVICES ARE OVERRATED. The billions that are syphoned by israel are wasted because the so called only reliable ally in the middle east is not capable to provide valuable data that the US needs. nations don;t have permanent friends, but permanent interests.
    The US is getting more bang for its buck from Arab and Muslim countries : use of bases to attack Irak and Afghanistan, sharing intelligence as concerning AL Quaeda, getting cheap cheap oil which is vital for its economy, client states that buy weapons by the billions from THEIR OWN POCKETs, not coming from US aid.
    Israel, to mask its uselessness to US interests, has the Jewish Lobby to buy elected officials and intimidate them by branding them antisemites. Sites like this one are basically a platform for attack on any critic of Israel by maskerading as a conservative group. They track to distract the gullible by daily demonizing other minorities: muslims, blacks, latinos. Give in to the worst stereotypes and unleash the anger of the hateful bigoted idiots (I am looking at you, Mary Sue and Drakken Balls)
    as they always do, in every nation where they were guest and allowed to prosper, they're arrogance will take over and they will overplay their hands: . Hagel and Brennan are a prime example. There will be a time when enough would be enough.

    Dare to make taunts at muslims and face the possibility of fatwas or riots or both, with lots of diatribe
    about death to america etc etc.

  • Joe Briggs

    I disagree completely with your arguments. Israel is by its Zionist definition a Jewish supremacist state, and as such its facade of democracy not only oppresses and limits its non-Jewish minorities, but Israeli support cheapens the sacrifices in civil rights that Americans have themselves struggled to achieve since the civil war. Israel will not have peace until the day they celebrate the birth of their own Martin Luther King, or Nelson Mandela. And that will be the only day that they are worth of once cent from an American taxpayer. Ethnically cleansing your population of Christians and Muslims at gun point to achieve a demographic majority just prior to declaring your independence as a ‘democracy’ might fool the masses of confused and media-controlled US religious zealots, but it didn’t buy peace; did it?

    • jack brown

      Arabs and Christians are well represented in the Israeli Knesset. And from what I’ve read, and seen in Israel, Christians and Jews get along just fine. Is there descrimination. Yes, there is. But there is descrimination in U.S and European countries as well. And there are many people in the Israeli Government that fight descrimination policies. But oppression, Give me a break!. Are there any Jews in Arab Parliaments or legislature? Oh, WAIT, I forgot, there are no Arab Parliaments! There are only dictatorships and outdated, religius fundamental monarchies. Authoritarianism goes hand in hand in the Muslim world. Look at Egypt, Syria amd Jordan. And how many ordinary Jews left in these countries. Please!! The Gaza Hamas government doesn’t even recognize Israel’s the right to exist. Talk about Supremacist ideology! I mean, really, what is there to talk about? Israel on the other hand, is not a supremacist state, it’s a Jewish state. Many Arab countries that surround Israel, spew Nazi ideology, like it’s the most natural thing in the world. Jews to them are nothing but animals. Vile and racist anti-Jewish propoganda is all over their Television and Newspapers. Tell your fairytales somewhere else, ok. Thanks a million.

  • Joe Briggs

    Jack Brown – seriously? “Israel on the other hand, is not a supremacist state, it’s a Jewish state.” Yes – if the KKK had their way we in GA would be living in a white Christian state. The little problem is when you send the army out, or in Israel’s case Gen. David ben Gurion and his Irgun terrorist thugs to depopulate the non-Jewish (Christian as well as Muslim) areas at gunpoint until a “jewish majority” was obtained and they could thus actually claim to be a democracy. It might fool you – it has clearly fooled you, but to anyone who is not bogged down in Zionist narrative lies its a facade. Control of your demographics originates the meaning of “token Knesset Arab”.

      Remind me again what happened to the great majority of jews living in Iraq, Jordan, Syria, and Egypt after 1948? Oh, I remember now! They were expelled from their homes, and land that was their home for thousands of years (pre-Islam I mind you). And that wasn’t because of Arab nationalism or bigotry! No of course not! What was the objective of Arab countries in 1948,1967, and 1973 wars? The total obliteration of the small Jewish state, that’s what Joe. And remind me again what happened to the Palestinians in Jordan, where the majority of population is Palestinian? Oh, yes, King Hussein purged and killed thousands of them (not to mention expelling thousands more). And you’re comparing Israel with KKK? Seriously? You know Joe, Mein Kampf and Protocols of the Elders of Zion are very popular in the Arab world. This is what these radicals believe; Ravings and Rantings of a mad man whose objective was to destroy the Jewish people. And an obvious, not to mention disgusting, and long ago proven forgery concocted by the Tsarist secret police in the early 20th century

      • Joe Briggs

        @JackBrown – that’s right, _after_ 1948, _after_ Zionist Jews in Israel turned against their Arab hosts and raped, murdered, and expelled them at gunpoint in the Nakba, _then_ neighboring countries became paranoid of what could happen with their Jewish population. The Nakba made every Jew in the middle-east a potential traitor or insurgent. But, just like the Holocaust, that sacrifice ultimately served the interest of the Jewish state in Israel. Nothing happens in a vacuum @JackBrown.

        • jack brown

          It’s because of the Holocaust there is a Jewish state! Because never again! When will you guys get it already! No more Jewish scapegoats for you to push around and murder in Gas chambers and Babi Yar mass grave sites! That train sailed long ago (1947 to be exact!). A potential traitor, yeah sure, RIGHT! Hitler spewed the same slogans. But by 1947 things have changed. The Jews realized what they had to do in order to survive as people.

          • Joe Briggs

            That might be the narrative but its certainly not the history. Israel and Zionism caused the Holocaust. If no Israel; then no Holocaust. If no Balfour; then no Holocaust. The Zionist took a calculated risk in the middle of WWI that turned every German Jew into a traitor, and ultimately put a cross-hair on every Jew in Poland and Russia, in exchange for Palestine should Britain win the war with the help of Jewish-controlled media. A lot of people because Britain did not take Germany’s offer to end the war, and the vitriolic Polish landgrab at Versailles would not go unpunished. So, what goes around comes around.

    How is saying “the Israelis are controlling our government.” Is anti-semitic!?! But it’s true! The Israelis are controlling our government! Jews are pure evil! Now that’s anti-semitic! But it’s also true too! You conservative Republikkkans are so ignorant and naive, to not see that Jews are controlling not just America but the entire world through finance, media, the entertainment industry and anything else those evil, dirty filthy jews can get their hands on! Say anything against them and you’re immediatley labelled anti-semitic. But it’s okay if they mock and say anything against another race or creed or religion or whatever your strange weird cult is. What is Jewish?!? Is it a race? Is it is a religion? so weird! It’s a cult is what it is! They even admit in the Torah or Talmud or whatever that thing is that non-Jews are not people but animals or lower. They want to kill everyone that’s non-Jewish, basically! Jews are controlling the world. I bet that you will erase this, because you know it’s true and you KON-servatives can’t handle the truth! Israeli’s and Jews are just pure evil!
