Not all Republicans are racists, but racists are more than likely to be Republicans, according to comedian Bill Maher.

“Government intrusion, you know government power, is something that really bothers conservatives unless it’s directed at people that are not white. It seems like there is something like that going on there,” Maher said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“I would never say and I have never said, because it’s not true that Republicans, all Republicans are racists. That would be silly and wrong. But nowadays, if you are racist, you’re probably a Republican. And that is quite different,” explained Maher.

    If you hate white people, you are certainly a Democrat.
    Not that all Democrats hate white people (I didn’t say that, and please don’t twist my words!)
    But the people who DO hate white people…are Democrats.
    Just sayin’.

    Continuing the thought….

    I am very conservative politically and do vote Republican, though I’m not registered as such. I will go so far as to recognize (how can we not?) that many Americans who are prejudiced against blacks and Hispanics would hardly be likely to vote Democrat but rather Republican. That said, Maher’s comment is STILL pure unadulterated idiocy. Why?

    Because R-A-C-I-S-M is the worldview that divides that humanity into the “good” and the “bad” on the basis of a skin color. For Maher to think (if he really does) that all such people maintaining that kind of worldview are to be found in or associated with the Republican party is, at best, moronically naive and, at worst, intentionally… and slimily… insidious. Either way, Maher turns out to be a true jerk. I suspect that’s the last time they’ll ever have THAT comedian (joker, clown…) on “This Week”.

    I am quite sure you’ll find that the dramatic preponderance of those Americans with an inner, ingrained, constitutional antagonism towards white people… are voting Democrat.
