Targeted by IRS? Bill Maher, Elayne Boosler suggest conservative groups were asking for it

Million-dollar Obama donor Bill Maher might want to call the president on his Obamaphone and tell him to calm down. The president zipped on stage today to tell the nation how angry he was that the IRS was targeting specific groups based on ideology, calling the agency’s actions “inexcusable” and demanding the resignation of the acting IRS commissioner. That’s quite an overreaction, isn’t it, considering those Tea Party nuts were just asking for it all along … like when Geraldo Rivera let us know wearing a hoodie is like wearing a “shoot me” sign.

It’s not news that a Bill Maher tweet isn’t funny, but this one isn’t even original. Comedian Elayne Boosler had the same take yesterday.

Hilarious, huh? If you disagree with a government policy, you’re just asking to be intimidated into silence, right? The current scandal wasn’t about using audits to silence dissent, though. Reports indicate that the IRS flagged groups that criticized how the country is being run, held up applications for tax-exempt status through two election cycles and demanded that conservatives turn over lists of children along with reading lists, photos and Facebook posts. Oh, and the IRS might have stolen 60 million confidential medical records. But those Tea Party clowns are racist, so it’s OK, right?

    Bill, I know satire. Satire is a friend of mine. That was not satire.

    • Elaine

      The IRS had NO PROBLEM approving all those OBAMA/SOROS progressive groups, without questions!

  • Gloves Donahue, Jr.

    Libs put a nut into office who thought he was the law.

    He’s not.

  • grais

    Sure. That’s why they targeted Billy Graham.

  • Namvet527

    Maher can shell it out but when it comes back on him he whines like stuck HOG

  • ObamaFail

    I say the IRS should target all of OBama’s rich buddies. I bet if they did some digging, I bet they’d find plenty of fraud from people such as Bill Maher and other rich people Obama has given tax breaks to.

  • KateNE

    They were asking for it. All that overt patriotism with the American flags and singing God Bless America and Star-Spangled Banner at rallies. What did these people expect? Their behavior was just appalling.

  • HARP2

    Bill…your stupidity is becoming rather boring. Try something else.

    • nc

      But he doesn’t know anything else.

      • mdtljt

        He could try fading into obscurity, he’s already proven he’s obsolete

  • Jeremy

    Bill “sleazebag”Maher at it again nothing new

  • Silenttype78

    “She was asking for it….wearing that tight shirt and short skirt !”

  • socalcon

    But it wasn’t targeted targeted- Whoopi

  • Shlomo Schekelstein

    By his logic, the DEA should investigate him for narcotics and he should be ok with that.

  • nc

    Gutfield today said if Tea Partiers were libs Robert Redford would have already made the movie about them, extolling their bravery in their fight against the injust treatment they received at the hands of a corrupt government.

  • LinTaylor

    And once again, the brain-dead pot-head completely misunderstands the point of the Tea Party, doing like so many hardcore liberals and socialists do and equating “limited federal government” with “anarchy”.

    When of course their bosom buddies, the car-crapping Occupiers, are much closer to anarchists than we are.

  • Jack Deth

    Elayne Boosler was funny…. About 40 years ago.

    Now she’s just…..sad. And pushing 61.

    • rinodino

      So she’s almost your age huh?

      • CatHerder

        Slightly younger than me, what’s your point?

      • 1SkepticalChick

        Old enough to be smarter than you, whippersnapper. Sorry, big word. Punk.

  • stuckinIL4now

    So what calamity is Maher asking for with his dumbassery?
    Like George said–dumb-est tweet, and dumb-est tweetuh, evuh!

  • DearLeaderObamba

    I am sure Bush looked for possible terror connections in ABC show-hosts who called the 9/11 hijackers and the marines cowards. Obviously that guy would have been asking for it.

  • BlahBlah

    Did I get this right. If you criticize _________ then _________ has every right to hit you with everything they have. Pig Maher has a long list of people/groups he regularly dumps on. He’s essentially saying that they can all jump him in any way they see fit? WELL GOOD TO KNOW PIG OLD BOY

  • rivers

    Well these two poor fools are making an amateur mistake. They think the Prog/Obama bubble will never burst. When does a bubble usually burst? Right after people start thinking that it never will.
    Good to know that they’re okay with people deemed unfriendly to the govt. being targeted.

  • Guest

    Bill Maher is an idiot. He has to pay for sex and is as ugly on the inside as on the outside. Enough said. He is unfit to speak. Morally and spiritually bankrupt. Pathetic piece of human debris. He and his aged urine soaked friend Hugh are the vestiges of a bygone era. His thought process is as sick and twisted as Caligula.

  • Markward

    Stalin had a term for people like you Maher: Useful Idiot.

  • TocksNedlog

    Gee, who knew that “Politically Incorrect” should really have been called “Morally Bankrupt”?

  • Herman LaClair

    i pine for the days when Bill Mahr was funny and relevant…oh, wait.

    It is obvious that in order to be an Pres. O supporters you must have an IQ deficiency.

  • JR48

    If you’re going to insult a group, at least know what the group is really about.

    The joke isn’t funny because his interpretation is wrong.

  • $27789750

    OK..not to change subject, but never heard of Elaine Boosler. Is her opinion of any value?

  • JamieD

    What about the ACORN groups? They needed this level of scrutiny. Even though it was proven that they were heavily involved in partisan politics…they got a pass (and still do under different names).

    So Bill. Its OK for YOUR friends to break the law with taxpayer dollars and its OK for our government to break the law as long as the victims are conservative, is that a good summary of your point of view?

    Blinded, Ignorant, selfish and juvenile all rolled into one. Pathetic.

  • digitalPimple

    Bill obviously pays extras for his girlfriends to tell him he’s smart and sexy.

  • missyree68

    Bill Maher is the most unhappy, nasty, maladjusted, malcontented, misinformed, uninformed hard to look at people that still has a TV show (definitely a face for radio). He is not now or ever been funny. Has never exhibited having any spirit, sense or soul (dead behind the eyes). Does not possess the ability to have a normal thought or an idea that was not seen through the prism of Caligula. If it wasn’t for paying for sex . . . I feel this was a held back version of how I really feel. He offends all of my senses

  • regmgr

    A true communist like Maher understands the use of power. What better tool to use when you need the people to follow the line.

  • Finrod Felagund

    Yeah, Bill, and women that get raped were wearing slutty outfits and asking for it, too. #LiberalLogic

  • MrMrmojorisin1968 .

    Bill loves to smoke pot…I guess it would be just dandy for the DEA to show up at his door asking where he got it from then? Typical leftist…Doesn’t think anything through to its natural conclusion.
