Bill Maher Quotes

Contrasting the American Sniper with The Hurt Locker, which Maher said in January, 2015. “covers a lot of the same territory” but was met with far less success: “Hurt Locker only made $17 million…because it was a little ambiguous. And thoughtful,” said Maher. “And [American Sniper] is just, ‘American hero, he’s a psychopath patriot, and we love him.’”

Bill Maher writes on his Real Time blog that there’s a reason for all those secession petitions being submitted to the White House lately: White people who didn’t vote for President Obama are “sore losers.”

From Maher’s post:

Fifty-nine million Americans voted for Mitt Romney. Don’t ask me why.  Why do they keep seeing Nicholas Sparks movies? Because white people are f***ed up, that’s why.

Who shops at the Hallmark Store? Who’s smoking all the meth? Who’s watching Duck Dynasty — a reality show about rednecks who make duck calls? It gets higher ratings than 30 Rock or Homeland and I can’t prove they’re white and stupid, but someone’s watching it…and it ain’t Cornel West. …

… I can understand breaking up the United States over the TSA. Because what real Texan wants someone at the airport finding out how small his dick is? But isn’t it odd that it only became a problem after Obama was reelected?

If the first black president only has one term, America reads that as a failure. This is what the right wing hopes and prays for more than anything else. America looks at this one-term president and goes, ‘We tried a black guy, but it just didn’t work. – talking with Arsenio Hall on Real Time, May 3, 2012.


First week of May, Maher attacked Romney and the tax deductions given to religious donations. Maher serves on the board of PETA, giving to several animal organizations.

When Mitt Romney gets a deduction for giving to charity, the rest of us taxpayers have to cover the loss. Charitable deductions reduce the public coffers by about 60 billion dollars a year… So it is fair to ask what should constitute a charity.

They provide food during famines and wheelchairs to the lame. But that’s not their main concern. Which is, like any business, growing the business, opening branches, selling more product, putting asses in tabernacles. General Electric plants a tree every now and then, it doesn’t make them Johnny Appleseed.
