Bill Maher on Friday took the opportunity of One Million Moms protesting Geico’s talking pig ad and Skittles’ walrus ad to ask the email-harvesting arm of the anti-gay hate group, “Aren’t you thinking a little too much about bestiality?”
“Maher said that all things conservative are being portrayed as way bigger than they really are, like the fact that One Million Moms does not have one million moms, or how the Catholic League (a group Maher said makes even Pat Robertson roll his eyes) is not really a league,” Mediaite notes:
He argued both are a “relatively small group of very shrill people” who speak loudly enough that enough politicians think their constituents are more conservative than they actually are.
Maher claimed, “Americans don’t hate socialism, they just can’t define it.” He also targeted the NRA for having a stranglehold on gun policy in the U.S. despite low gun ownership figures and their small membership.
Maher ended by turning to CPAC, the message of which he said was “whatever you do, don’t change.” He shot down the idea being touted by speakers at the conservative conference that they speak for the majority of Americans, saying that they don’t, but “they’re just so loud they haven’t noticed America has moved on without them.”
Ah… some real truth talk.
