We Don’t Envy You, Mr. Maher

(Feb. 26, 2019) — Last Friday night on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher host Maher ridiculed fly-over country and belittled Trump voters suggesting they were envious of his lifestyle and the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

(See video below.)

In a segment about Amazon’s new headquarters, Maher said what red state voters really want is a more cosmopolitan lifestyle.

“The flyover states have become passed-over states, that’s why red state voters are so p****** off,” Maher said.

“They don’t hate us. They want to be us. They want to go to the party. It’s like we’re the British royal family and they’re Meghan Markle’s dad,” Maher added.

Even though I know it’s a futile task to free a fool from the chains he reveres, yet I do things sometimes just for the sake of saying I tried.

Envy you, Mr. Maher? Red State voters don’t envy you or any of the party goers in your “smart set.”

So you understand, Mr. Maher, put this in your pipe and smoke it.

We don’t want to be like you or like the people who think like you because we know:

You’re cruel and miserable people who can’t respond to love.

You respond only to what your petty desires dictate, to things that have weight, bulk, and value.

You’re nothing but appraisers and gold diggers who don’t value the arts for their truth or their beauty.

You use them for personal fame and fortune.   

You live in a mirror, Mr. Maher.

The world is nothing to you but a reflection of yourself.

You belittle America and its patriots for your amusement.

You take pleasure in humiliating them and mocking their beliefs because it gives you the same sense of fulfillment that they get from a kiss or an embrace.

You’re a hollow man, Mr. Maher. Without your persona, you and the people who think like you are nothing more than ridiculous caricatures.
