COMMENTARY | To see the responses online, you’d think Bill Maher shot John Lennon. Why? Because he’s honest in his assessment of the current version of the Occupy Wall Street morons. The Daily Caller has him saying “I find myself almost agreeing with Newt Gingrich, like you know whatÂ—get a job.” See that part where he said “almost?” But that’s the problem with so many people on political topics of America in 2012Â—they so often miss the little things.
Where folks may be mad at Bill Maher is in his honesty. He’s not concerned with whether he makes the Pope or the president happy. He just calls it like he sees it. Bill Maher is a hero to many for his brutal honesty. And, when it comes down to it, he’s only stating the obvious, just like the Associate Press reports do. In spite of their chants, not everyone is “the 99 percent.” It does seem many of the good occupy Wall Street protesters have already gone home.
The remaining “protesters” seem to be those who either aren’t able to tell their surroundings or those who were already trying to camp in the parks already. The rest of the world has already moved on folks. Those who are serious about effecting political change have already adjusted their approach. Those who were there just to gripe have already gone back because it was cold outside. The rest of you justÂ—perhapsÂ—need help.
