Bill Maher: ‘Democrats Are the New Republicans’

Posted on Jun 21, 2009
Bill Maher

Last week Bill Maher took on the president. This week, the “Real Time” host accuses the Democrats of selling out their principles to hedge funds and polluters: ” ... over the last 30-odd years, Democrats have moved to the right and the right has moved into a mental hospital.”

richard east,

There is 86 Democrats in the House, and we need to expand upon that.  The only way the two parties can stay the same is if the people allow it, primary elections can take as many as possible of the 131 of the DLC Republican-Democrats out of the House and as many as possible of the 99 need to be taken out of the Senate and the General Election can put new members who are not of the conservative extremist DLC Blue Dogs and New Democrats back into Congress.  The only other alternative is bloody revolution, which would definitely have to be covert.

I think the fact that there are “Republican-Democrats” just goes to show you that there isn’t really any difference between the two (not in Washington, anyways).

Christian, please leave the fairy tales from Revelations off a website called TRUTHdig.

Yes, 131 of the Democrats are Republican EXTREMISTS and the Republicans are Republican EXTREMISTS as well.  There are 435 Congressmen in the House of Representatives, 1/2 of those are Republicans which would be 217, which leaves 217 Democrats, and 131 of those are Republican-Democrats, which leaves only 86 that actually represent the constituents of their districts, as all Republicans and all Republican-Democrats only represent corporate power and the elite capitalists. There is also 100 seats in the Senate and 50 are Republican and 50 are Republican-Democrat. 

It is time to use the Primary voting system and vote out as many of the Republican-Democrats as we can in the 2010 Primaries and do our best to get some real Democrats in office. Pelosi and Reid will have to be voted out as they are Republican-Democrats.

I’ve been reading various comments following articles.  There seems to be many questions about
the mind and ideas of President Obama.  He is a
human just like the rest of us:  eats, sleeps, goes
to the bathroom, etc.  For those of you not familiar
with the Bible, I will bring scriptures to mind
for you.  Revelation 12: 7,8,9 “And there was war in
Heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the
dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and
did not prevail.  Their place was not found in
heaven anymore.  The great dragon was cast out, that
old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which
DECEIVES THE WHOLE WORLD:  He was cast out into the
earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”  Then,
Revelation 12:12 reads, “Therefore refoice you that
dwell in the Heavens.  WOE to the inhabitants of the
earth and of the sea!  For the devil is come down
unto you, having great wrath, because he knows he
has but a short time.”  Notice it read, “he was cast
INTO the earth.”  I recently watched a program on
The History Channel about people witnessing UFO’s
going INTO water.  Is the devil and his angels in
UFO’s and are they based under water?  Interesting
thought!  What does all this have to do with the
ideas of President Obama?  If you were the devil and his angels and your goal was to destroy as many
people as possible how would you do it?  One obvious answer would be to influence the ideas of people
producing movies, television programs, computer
games, etc. regardless where on earth they were being produced, i.e, USA, Europe, Russia, Iran, etc.  Another significant target the devil and his
angels would hit would be heads of state in various
countries.  They would be the ones responsible for
the wars and destruction around the earth.  Obama
and other heads of states must watch their ideas.
I am not completely sure how Satan and his angels
can influence ideas but I am positive they can.  Satan is my and your enemy.  If you are going to fight an enemy you better learn as much as you can
about that enemy.  Don’t forget the phrase above
“Satan deceives the whole world.”  Have you and I
been deceived by Satan and his angels working through people?  You can bet on it. Have you ever
wondered why so many various people around the world hate the tiny nation of Israel?  Revelation 12:13
gives us the answer, “When the dragon saw that he was cast to earth, he persecuted the woman which
brought forth the man child.  The child is Jesus.
The woman was Israel.  Trying to prevent the first
coming of Jesus Satan influenced the mind of Herod
to have 3,000 babies slaughtered in Bethlehem.  Now
Satan is trying to prevent the second coming of Jesus because he knows when he arrives his time on
earth is finished for a thousand years.  You think
the President of Iran is crazy when he says “Death
to Israel” and “Israel must be wiped off the earth?”  He’s not crazy.  HE’S POSSESSED!  Just like Adolf Hitler was!  Happy Father’s Day!

P.S—-Excuse me for posting this after this article.
I just posted it following another article.  I want
to print it but the other article has 70 comments.
This one has only 1 comment. Easier to print.

” what we have is one perfectly good party for hedgefund managers, credit card companies, banks, defense contractors, big agriculture, and the pharmaceutical company, that’s the democrats…”

Yes, Bill! Bravo!

This has been a recent leitmotif of Bill’s. The vast majority of the show isn’t too great, but he really delivers a great end monologue.
