Bill Maher accused of making fried chicken joke to black Republican congressman

Comedian Bill Maher was accused of racism after making a fried chicken joke to a black Republican during an interview on Friday’s HBO show of “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd came on the show to discuss the border wall, which he opposes. The host went on to ask the congressman why he remains a member of the GOP and sides with “traitor” President Trump. “I’m a Republican because I believe in limited government,” Hurd responded, prompting Maher to interject and accuse Republicans of not actually supporting smaller government. “I’m just asking why you’re Republican? Because they’re not good at the debt, that was their big thing. You said limited government, they don’t do that.” Maher said. “What’s in it for you? What is in the Republican Party for you? You were in the CIA!” Hurd responded: “I was in the CIA for almost a decade. I was the dude in the back alleys at 4 o’clock in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland.” That’s when Maher made the joke. “That’s where you’d collect it, huh? Wow. By the Popeyes Chicken?” Following the exchange, people on Twitter accused Maher of making a racist joke to the congressman. “Here’s Bill Maher lobbing a clearly racist joke to GOP Congressman Will Hurd, asking him if he gathered undercover intel for the CIA out ‘by the Popeye’s Chicken,’” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck tweeted. “Bill Maher is gonna be Bill Maher. Nobody’s canceling HBO over this, so he’s just gonna keep on being Bill Maher and accusing a black congressman of gathering intelligence behind a Popeyes Chicken,” tweeted Gabriel Malor. “Bill Maher insults black CIA vet by suggesting he picked up tips ‘behind the Popeye’s Chicken’ same day as Ralph Northam admits he submitted racist af blackface Klan photo to yearbook – it’s almost like this is all a game to them,” tweeted the Federalist publisher Ben Domenech. Maher has long been criticized for what some have described as racially charged language on his show. About two years ago, Maher faced calls to have his show scrapped after he said the N-word during an interview with Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse. He apologized for the use of the word that time.

..and he got away with it because HBO is crazy liberal, and so is Bill.  And, he’ll get away with this brazenly racist quip.  Just another example of the glaring hypocrisy and double standard on parade courtesy of liberal elitist HollyWEIRD.  Just fathom if a conservative talk show host had made a similar crack…OR if a Republican governor had the yearbook scandal that Gov. Northam (D-VA) is dealing with?  They’d be gone that day.  Period.  And, we ALL know it.  Gov. Northam is hunkering down and saying, “hell no, I won’t go.”  And, Bill Maher will continue to be the obnoxious tool he is…and get away with saying, well…just about anything.  Typical..  Of course, here at The Daily Buzz we’ll continue to document the hypocrisy and double standard of the dominantly liberal mainstream media and self-righteous, liberal elitists in HollyWEIRD.

Opinion/Analysis: ‘White Privilege’ Is a Racist Idea

Across the country, re-education sessions are routinely held in businesses, professional offices, medical schools, universities, and even kindergartens. Their purpose is to teach the un-woke about the evils of “white privilege,” and make white people who participate uncomfortable about their skin color. Whites are to own up to the fact that regardless of their intentions, beliefs, behaviors or status in life, they are elite participants in a racist system that oppresses “people of color,” and are so merely because they are white. But discrimination on the basis of skin color has been outlawed in this country for more than 60 years. One might reasonably ask, “WTF is white privilege”? Here’s my politically incorrect answer: White privilege is the gift of being the only racial/ethnic group on the planet which it is okay to single out for abuse. Indeed, such abuse is obligatory for all who regard themselves as “woke,” and who aspire to promote “social justice.” This is a category that includes the media, the popular culture, the educational system, and such shapers of public opinion as Don Lemon; Joy Ann Reid; Joy Behar; Brian Stelter; Rachel Maddow; the editorial boards and reporters of the New York Times and the Washington Post; and the Democratic Party. “White privilege” is the privilege of being regarded as untrustworthy, prejudiced, and blind to the injustices one’s skin color is said to inflict. “White privilege” is the privilege of being damned for alleged racist public safety measures like like “Stop and Frisk” policies, and also the often imaginary crimes of one’s alleged ancestors. Thus, it is fashionable in today’s political culture to seek reparations for slavery from Americans whose ancestors never owned slaves, were not even in the country at the time, and were oppressed themselves in ethnic and religious ghettos across the globe. Reparations for slavery are also sought from the descendants of Union soldiers who gave their lives to abolish slavery. White privilege is the privilege of being held responsible for slavery when white America accounted for a small proportion of the African slave trade globally, which was mainly run by “people of color,” while white America led the world in abolishing slavery, an institution that still exists in non-white Africa today. Our country is now facing a national political crisis over borders because of the poverty and oppression caused by the corrupt politics and leftist economies of Central and South America, which has prompted their citizens to break into our country illegally. Conditions in the resource-rich southern hemisphere are so bad that 20 million of its residents have already broken the law to violate our sovereignty, bankrupt our social services and educational systems, and fill our jails. And yet according to the left, to seek a wall to stem this flood is white racism. As a top Democratic strategist put it recently, “Building a wall says: ‘If you’re brown turn around.” Such twisted logic would also provide an excuse to open our borders to the world’s Islamic terrorists, who have killed hundreds of thousands of mainly “brown” victims since 9/11.

CNN legal analyst Areva Martin accuses David Webb of ‘white privilege’ before learning he’s black

It was a rough day for author and CNN legal analyst Areva Martin on Tuesday. Martin accused Sirius XM radio and Fox Nation host David Webb of “white privilege” during a segment on a radio program before he broke the news. “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped. I’m black,” Webb said. The embarrassing moment occurred during a discussion about experience being more important than race when determining whether or not someone is qualified for a particular job. “I’ve chosen to cross different parts of the media world, done the work so that I’m qualified to be in each one. I never considered my color the issue, I considered my qualifications the issue,” Webb said. “That’s a whole, another long conversation about white privilege, the things that you have the privilege of doing, that people of color don’t have the privilege of,” said Martin – who also hosts CBS’ “Face the Truth.” A dumbfounded Webb asked, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?” Martin responded, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege.” The Fox Nation host then explained that he was actually black. “I stand corrected,” Martin said. Webb scolded Martin for running with an “assumption” and she then blamed her team for providing inaccurate information. “That’s actually insulting,” Webb said. “It is and I apologize,” Martin replied. “I was given wrong information.” Martin’s spokesperson declined a request for comment.

We’ll sorta, kinda..gice Areva the benefit of the doubt here for having “wrong info.”  And, she DID apologize.  Fair enough.  But, she should probably fire the staffer(s) who provided the “wrong info.”  That being said..  This illustrates the pitfalls of constantly playing the race card; something that CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media do on a daily basis.  At some point it’s gonna backfire.  Such was the case here.  The ASSumption by the folks at CNN was that their conservative guest from Fox Nation MUST be a white male.  So, they prepped for the show based on that ASSumption because it fit their extreme liberal racial template.  DOH!!

Black South African politician urges followers to ‘kill whites’, saying: ‘We will kill their children and their women’

The leader of a South African political party has called for the killing of white women and children in a row over the taxi industry. Andile Mngxitama, president of Black First Land First (BLF), was speaking at a rally on the weekend in Potchefstroom near Johannesburg when he made the violent comments. He tells the cheering crowd: ‘For each one person that is being killed by the taxi industry, we will kill five white people. ‘For every one black person we will kill five white people. ‘You kill one of us we will five of you. We’ll kill their women, we’ll kill their children, we’ll kill anything we find in our way.’ Mngxitama then beckons the crowd: ‘For every one of them, we’ll kill how many?’ And they chant back: ‘Five,’ Mngxitama repeats, ‘For every one of them?’ and they respond, ‘Five.’ This back-and-forth is repeated several times until Mngxitama continues his rant and even calls for the deaths of dogs and cats owned by white people.

You really can’t make this stuff up, folks.  And, you certainly won’t find this story on MSNBC, CNN, or any other organ of the dominantly liberal mainstream media because it destroys their narrative that only white people can be brazenly, violently racist.  For more on this story out of South Africa, click on the text above.

White liberals ‘patronize’ minorities: study

White liberals present themselves as less competent when addressing minorities, while conservatives use the same vocabulary no matter what the race of their audience, according to a newly released study. Yale and Princeton researchers found that both white Democratic presidential candidates and self-identified liberals played down their competence when speaking to minorities, using fewer words that conveyed accomplishment and more words that expressed warmth. On the other hand, there were no significant differences in how white conservatives, including Republican presidential candidates, spoke to white versus minority audiences. “White liberals self-present less competence to minorities than to other Whites—that is, they patronize minorities stereotyped as lower status and less competent,” according to the study’s abstract. Cydney Dupree, Yale School of Management assistant professor of organizational behavior, said she was surprised by the findings of the study, which sought to discover how “well-intentioned whites” interact with minorities. “It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle but persistent effect,” Ms. Dupree said. “Even if it’s ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing.” The study flies in the face of a standard talking point of the political left—that white conservatives are racist—while raising questions about whether liberals are perpetuating racial stereotypes about blacks being less competent than whites. The paper, which is slated for publication in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, first examined speeches by Republican and Democratic presidential candidates to mostly white and mostly minority audiences dating back 25 years. Ms. Dupree and Princeton’s Susan Fiske analyzed the text for “words related to competence,” such as “assertive” and “competitive,” and “words related to warmth,” such as “supportive” and “compassionate.” “The team found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches delivered to mostly minority audiences than they did in speeches delivered to mostly white audiences,” said the Yale press release. “The difference wasn’t statistically significant in speeches by Republican candidates.”

Just pause and let that all sink in..  We have a bunch of liberal professors from 2 spectacularly liberal elitist institutions of higher learning do a study, and their saddened to learn through their arduous research something the rest of America has known for years; that white liberals patronize minorities.  Imagine that!     🙂

‘Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ criticized as racist

You’re a racist man, Charlie Brown! Critics are slamming ABC’s “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” for seating its only black character, Franklin, alone on one side of the holiday table — in a rickety old lawn chair. Meanwhile, white friends — including Peppermint Patty, Charlie Brown, Sally and even Snoopy — were all seated across from him in real chairs as they feasted, Twitter users pointed out. The special, which debuted Nov. 20, 1973, aired again on Wednesday — prompting social media outrage over the gang’s highly unwoke picnic table arrangement. “Why is Franklin in Charlie Brown Thanksgiving sitting all by himself at the table. Man. Things that I did not notice as a child,” @Asharp52 blasted on Twitter. Others said good grief over a seating chart that would have thrilled George Wallace. “Not watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving anymore, until they sit some people on the same side of the table as Franklin,” another critic tweeted, along with two black power-style fist emojis. The scene in question centers on an impromptu holiday feast — of toast, jelly beans and ice cream — in Charlie Brown’s backyard. At one point, poor lonesome Franklin topples over in his half-broken chair. “They give our friend the busted chair and won’t even sit on the same side of the table, more proof that Charlie Brown and his cohorts are RACIST,” slammed Twitter user @mwizzy128. But others defended the classic special, pointing out its creator Charles Schulz fought to add Franklin to the cast to stand up against racism in 1968. “Seriously please get some historical context. Charles M. Schultz was a trailblazer and bucked racism in those days by adding Franklin to reflect the issue… and challenging what was then going on in society,” tweeted California radio show host Mark Larson.

Exactly!!!  Well said Mark.  No, you’re not a racist, Charlie Brown.   🙂

Trump chides reporter for ‘racist’ question: ‘So insulting to me’

President Trump said Wednesday that a reporter’s question about whether he foments white nationalism was a “racist” question. “To say that is so insulting to me,” Mr. Trump told a NPR NewsHour reporter Yamiche Alcindo during a a press conference at the White House. She had questioned Mr. Trump about whether his calling himself a nationalist was a dog whistle for white nationalists, an often repeated charge in the news media. She said using the word makes people think the Republican Party is aligned with white nationalists. “That’s such a racist question,” responded the president, who noted his high approval rating among black Americans. Mr. Trump said there as no connection between nationalism and white nationalism. “You know what the word is, I love our country,” Mr. Trump said.

Isn’t it great seeing a president actually punch back against these obnoxious, race-baiting liberal reporters trying to gin up fake news?  Excellent!!      🙂
