Bill Maher blames Fox News for climate that led to Charlottesville violence

HBO host Bill Maher is blaming Fox News for helping to create the political environment that led to the eruption of violence at a white nationalist demonstration in Charlottesville, Va.

In a panel discussion on his show “Real Time,” Maher on Friday said that Fox News, the Internet and President Trump created the “perfect storm” that led to the protests in the Virginia college town last weekend.

“They are the ‘Jurassic Park’ that took the DNA of the Nazis and reanimated it,” Maher said.

“I believe that without Fox News for years giving the kind of poison they give over their airwaves, putting it into people’s heads, and then the Internet, I think, which you know – people say they get radicalized on the Internet,” he said. “Before if you were a neo-Nazi, unless you found somebody in a coffee shop – now you can find someone on the Internet. And then the president gave permission to them.

    So, Fox, the internet and trump are responsible for the rise in hate groups like La Rasa, BLM and other antifa groups? They are responsible for the ambush killing of Police officers, the attacks on people of different political views, the rioting and vandalism following the election? Interesting.
    Maher should realize that antiquated hate groups like the KKK (started by Democrats), the American Nazi Party and many White Supremacist groups were around long before the rise of Trump. They should have been done away with years ago but good Democrats, like former leader Robert Byrd, like to keep them around so that the left would have a target every few years. However, BLM is a product of the Obama Administration and their tactic approval of their terrorist tactics. People are screaming about Trump not being harsh enough following Charlotte, what did Obama do after Police officers were shot from ambush in Dallas? Did he come out the next day and condemn BLM for one of their own shooting these brave souls?

    Is this guy nuts? Like it or not it was the white supremacists that had a permit. It the other radical organizations did not interfere there would have been no problem. The white supremacists are a disgusting few, but the BLM and others are not much better. They should have been called out as Trump did.

    Extremists were around long before Fox news. Obama the Agitator introduced Indentity Politics.

  • Rodney Steward says:

    The Dem. party is behind this whole shi$ !! They see the Russian thing is slowly falling apart, now the Soros party of thugs from the Dems. to the antifa, KKK, you name it, it’s the new distraction now, anything for chaos!! But this crap is getting out of hand FAST and it’s going to lead to something very unpleasant !!

  • CintiCB says:

    They should have kept race out of the title. Instead of ‘White Nationalists’, it should have been called ‘Nationalists’.

  • Peter Smith says:

    And I blame Bill Maher for the continued stupidity of his audience.

  • astrojohn says:

    Seems to me Fox is fading and the real culprit is the money man man behind it all – can you say SOROS, you moron?!

  • Anouk says:

    Bill Maher, you are such a hypocrite and a liar. Go back to your hole and stay there.

  • Bob S says:

    Maybe it’s called “social” media because it’s meant to bring about “social-ism”. I’ve never seen something that at once breeds group think and discord among its users.

  • Bob S says:

    So according to Maher, Antifa organizes in coffee shops?

    1. astrojohn says:

      …and Soros pays for the coffee and donuts…

    2. Bob says:

      That’s where “Community Organizers” get their sheep.

    Dear Bill, the only people responsible for the violence at Charlottesville are the counter protesters who came there uninvited without permits and started attacking a peaceful group of permitted demonstrators. It is pathetic that everyone in the media and entertainment does not have the guts to call a spade a spade. Thankfully President Trump does and did. Grow up and stop making excuses for bad behavior. We saw enough of that from Obama. No one has the right to commit violence just because they are offended by someone’s point of view. Our First Amendment gives freedom of speech to all of us, not just minorities and Democrats. People who commit violence just because they are spoiled brats should be thrown in jail as they are criminals.

    Mahr is a moron!

  • Once in a great while Mahr stumbles on to reality; this is not one of those times. This jerk off is actually claiming that Fox is dispensing false truths, while all other cable and network media is giving you un biased objective news. Hmmmm like Brian Williams war stories or Wolfie Blitzers Barcelona copy cat bull shit, or Rathers “THE STORY IS TRUE”
    There’s only one way to put this;

    Bill Maher makes a living “Blaming Others”, he is always complaining about something, which is typical for any Demo-Commie.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      He must have got that from Obama, or the other way around! 🙂
