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 pissed 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.

The truth is leftists aren’t always stark raving mad. Once in a blue moon a leftist will have a brief moment of clarity and will say something that is both rational and true.

Recently, Bill Maher had such a moment on the Charlie Rose Show when he said that people who claim Islam is like other religions are naive and plain wrong. And back in 2009, CBS’s Late Night host David Letterman had his brief moment of clarity during an exchange with Bill O’Reilly.

In the back and forth, Letterman quoted from a New York Times feature on Glenn Beck where he had said, “if you take what I say as gospel, you’re an idiot.”

With the meekness and charm of a Vogue magazine editor, Letterman then said that O’Reilly was too smart to actually believe those populist, conservative views that he espouses to the folks.

“I think Glenn Beck, and maybe he got caught up in the moment of candor, but I think he speaks to this. I think you guys [O’Reilly, Beck, and Rush Limbaugh] know exactly what you’re doin’. You’ve been very successful at it, but the truth of it is you’re not speaking your conscience,” Letterman said.

“We’re charlatans is what you’re saying?” O’Reilly asked.

“It’s not charlatan; it’s show business,” Letterman said. … “This is why wrestling is popular,” he added.

This brief exchange between Letterman and O’Reilly is telling. Between the lines Letterman is saying that O’Reilly and the others have adopted personas, and that the majority of the people who listen to them do not know that. He also knows that many people have been conditioned by the media to adore these personas and to clap like trained seals when they’re around them.

Letterman is saying that the people who listen to talk show hosts believe that their personas reflect who they truly are in real life. Letterman is saying that when they’re not hosting a show or in the public eye, they may hold opinions and beliefs that actually contradict those they express on their shows.

O’Reilly, Beck, and Limbaugh know their niche audience, and they created personas to reflect the values, beliefs, and ideals of that audience. If they actually held the principles and convictions they espouse on their shows, they’d be working feverously to save this country from destruction instead of lining their pockets.

For the uninitiated, David Letterman exposed the underbelly of the beast, and the beast is show business. Like it or not, talk show hosts are entertainers in the entertainment industry and are not principled patriots whose love of country supersedes their self interest.

The following lyrics are meant to be sung to the tune of The Byrds’ “Drug Store Truck Drivin’ Man“:

They’re America’s friend, they talk on week days

But they sure do think different from the words that they say.

They’re political commentators who pine for this land

And why they’re successful, I can’t understand

Director Darren Aronofsky’s depiction of Noah did not come from the Bible. Aronofsky’s thoroughly pagan retelling of the Noah story is derived from Kabbalist and Gnostic sources.

Aronofsky does not believe in the God of the Bible. He mixes together environmentalism, mysticism, and atheism; then adds a pinch of Kabbalah and a dash of Jewish Gnosticism as flavor for his mystical interpretation of the Biblical story.
