If you missed Bill Maher’s Real Time last Friday, you missed him delivering one of his most scathing condemnations of Republicans and those who choose to vote for them.
“And before you accuse me of equating the Casey Anthony verdict with Republican thinking — save your breath, I am. I’m equating them. If you’re a working-class American who still votes Republican then you don’t get to bitch about that verdict.”
“[Half of American voters] say ‘I’m with the party that cuts all these programs for real people, for the 99 percent. Planned Parenthood, environmental protection, college, health care, infrastructure, but holds the line on private jets.’ Voting for them is as stupid as voting not guilty for the mom who lost her baby for a month and went looking at a wet t-shirt contest.”
“Yes, Republican base, you are just like that jury. It’s pathetically clear who’s killing the middle class but you keep letting them get away with murder.”
Maher is absolutely right. I’ve often wondered what motivates a middle class American to vote for a party which time after time has shown itself to be a party which cares little for them…party which lessens their ability to better their lives with every piece of legislation they propose…a party whose single aim appears to be to find better ways to keep the Koch brothers and their rich buddies happy.
I don’t what it’s going to take for middle class Republican voters to wake up. What more must be done to them before they realize that the political party they keep on voting for is, in essence, destroying them?
