After giving Paul Ryan a thorough tongue lashing on “Real Time with Bill Mahar” for comments he made regarding impoverished inner city kids, Bill Mahar turned around and got his guests good on their double standards.
He read another quote from Ryan, or so they all thought, and just as they were about to start ripping on Ryan again Mahar told them that the statement he just read was from the First Lady, Michelle Obama.
“When it comes to getting an education, too many of our young people just can’t be bothered. They’re sitting on couches for hours playing video games, watching TV. Instead of dreaming of being a teacher or a lawyer or a business leader, they’re fantasizing about being a baller or a rapper,” the First Lady had said.
A joyful and laughing audience went silent, as did the members of the panel Mahar had on his show as they were visibly surprised that the first Lady had made the remarks.
The lback comedian he had on there, W. Kamau Bell, who was the most vocal about Ryan fell dead silent and needed a second to compose himself for a reply since he knew he was just caught by Mahar in the typical double standard we see from liberals.
“Is something less true if a white person says it?” Maher asked the panel.
Bell quickly tried to cover his tracks and said “I don’t think it’s a democrat or a republican issue, this is a problem issue.”
Believe it or not, Mahar actually wasn’t convinced. “Well, yeah suddenly,” he said.
Then he pointed out that Michelle Obama’s comments sounded even more racist that Paul Ryan’s.
Bell, knowing he was caught in his hypocrisy, tried to excuse the First Lady’s comments by saying “We talk to each other differently than we talk in front of you.”
This is the type of behavior that enables racism to persist in this nation. Bell’s attitude exemplifies that typical liberal attitude on race of lambasting anybody not black who speaks the truth while allowing black people to say or do whatever they want. There’s no difference in who says what, if the statement is true then it’s true, yet Bell wanted to dismiss the First Lady’s statement when he thought Ryan said it and it was okay one he found out Michelle did.
What are your thoughts? Do you think statements become less true just because a white person says it? Was Mahar on the money when he asked that question? Let me know in the comments, I love to read them!
Also, make sure you share this with people to show them just how hypocritical the people we’re having to deal with are!
