Even staunch Liberal and outspoken anti-Trumper, Bill Mahar, has hit back against Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., after the left-wing lightening rod called for a boycott of his show.

Last week, Mahar tweeted that Tlaib was acting like a child. “Some people have one move only: boycott. Cancel. Make-go-away,” Maher wrote, apparently echoing phrases toddlers use. “But here’s the thing, the house voted 318 to 17 to condemn the #BDS movement, including 93% of Dems. Does Tlaib want to boycott 93% of her own party?”

Maher’s tweet appeared to refer to a July vote in which the House overwhelmingly approved a measure opposing the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.

Omar was the among the 17 that voted not to condemn BDS. But, she took it a step further, specifically pushing her own resolution, along with fellow freshman Representative, Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., affirming the right to boycott Israel. Israel blocked both Congresswomen from entering the country due to their positions on BDS.

After Tlaib received permission to visit her grandmother in the region, she balked at the condition that she couldn’t promote boycotts against Israel — something she previously agreed to in a letter to the Israeli government.

During the controversy, Maher fiercely criticized the BDS movement, saying, “BDS is a bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class.”

Maher went on to say why he (and 318 other members of Congress) feel that BDS is “Bullshit.” “It’s predicated on this notion … I think it’s very shallow thinking that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and Palestinians are mostly brown, so they must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong,” he said.

“As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this ‘completely peaceful people’ found themselves occupied. Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.”

After those scathing words on his broadcast, Tlaib responded via twitter, by comparing Maher’s commentary to tactics used to block protests against apartheid in South Africa.

“Maybe folks should boycott his show,” she said. “I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom.”

  1. I LOVE an article where the author doesn’t proof read (edit) the final draft. That way you get several
    different spellings of the principle (Mahar, Mayer) and then you stop reading & say, “to hell with it”.

  2. There is nothing any politician could do to make me want to boycott Bill Maher’s show. Actually no one could make me want to not watch Bill Maher show.
    A word to the wise to the politicians considered freshman, should listen more and possibly talk less at this time until they understand the road of politics.

  3. You called her a lighting rod. Wow. There is not much of that to call her one. She is just a creep that cause trouble.

  4. Typical, Loud mouth Bill Maher does not like it when the BS is directed back at him, he is the one stamping his feet and complaining like a toddler, he is showing his true colors, how does it feel loser?

  5. SHE’S BAD NEWS ….. AS WELL AS THE FEW THAT WHO ASSOCIATE WITH HER.
    SHE WAS VOTED IN …. NOW IS THE TIME TO REMOVE HER.
    THINK HARD AND THINK DEEP INTO YOUR SOULS AT ELECTION TIME.
    PERFECT FOR D.T.s NEXT WIFE.

  6. Mahre is a pig. Hard to decided if Mahre is the bigger pig between he and Lawrence O’Donnell. I have no use for either of them…

  7. LOL Hilarious stuff. They’re now beginning to turn and eat their own like they did in the French Revolution. Please, please make it a Fast Meal so we can be rid of the Demon-Rats aka: “New Democratic Socialist – Communist Party.”

  8. Actually hard to believe that I find myself agreeing with anything that Bill Maher has to say but in this instance I agree with him 100%. Maher is an ignorant little twerp whose opinions matter to people of a like mind, in other words to people who live in an other worldly reality. In essence Bill Maher is only relevant to a very few people. The only reason he is attacking Rashida Talib is because of her hatred for the state of Israel while he supports her on a slew of issues that are against most American traditions. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Enough said.

  9. … so, don’t watch their show!!! .. no need for name calling –That’s AMERICA! You don’t have to like everything about everyone and you don’t need to criticize everyone you don’t agree with! Don’t watch if it offends you. Save your breath, live peacefully and move on with your life and what you enjoy about it!

  10. T’lieb’s Grandmother probably wants little to do with her trouble making Granddaughter. Their association may make her, herself a target, bless her heart. Would you want such a granddaughter to visit you and point you out? Uuuuhhh…no.

  11. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for rookie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
