Boycott of Bill Maher's Show Suggested by Rep Rashida Tlaib After He Criticizes BDS

Boycott of Bill Maher's Show Suggested by Rep Rashida Tlaib After He Criticizes BDS Rep. Rashida Tlaib suggested boycotting "Real Time With Bill Maher" Saturday after he called the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement she supports a "bulls— purity test" during Friday's HBO show. "Maybe folks should boycott his show," she tweeted Saturday. "I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now." Maybe folks should boycott his show. I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom.

Bill Maher isn’t mincing words when it comes to giving his opinion about billionaire conservative David Koch, who died Friday at 79. The host of Real Time said he was “glad” the man who built a conservative political empire alongside his brother Charles had died. “Yesterday, David Koch, of the zillionaire Koch brothers, died of prostate cancer. I guess I’m going to have to reevaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer,” Maher said. “He was 79, but his family says they wish he could live longer, but at least he lived long enough to see the Amazon catch fire.” Condolences “poured in from all the politicians he owned,” Maher said, adding that instead of sending flowers, mourners have been asked “to just leave their car engine running.”

"Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away," Maher said on Twitter, before noting that House Democrats earlier this year overwhelmingly approved a resolution to condemn the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. "Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?" Some people have one move only: boycott.

Maher said that he was well aware “these seem like harsh words and harsh jokes” and he’ll surely “be condemned for them on Fox News.” Maher went on to say that David and Charles Koch “have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers” so there would be little sympathy. “So, f*** him, the Amazon is burning up,” Maher said. “I’m glad he’s dead, and I hope the end was painful.”

Mike Huckabee: Our values are collapsing – How can we be shocked by the decline of civility, spread of hate?.
A new poll shows a drastic drop in the number of Americans who place a high value on patriotism, belief in God, and having children. More striking even than the overall decline is the generational divide. Those younger than 38 years old — millennials and the “zoomers” of Generation Z — are less than half as likely to rate religion as a “very important” value than Americans over 55. Among the younger generations, fewer than half think patriotism is very important, and fewer than one-third consider having a family of their own to be an important priority. © FoxNews.
