LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


By Kody Fairfield

Comedian and host of HBO’s “Real Tim,” Bill Maher came swinging at one of his recurring guests for cancelling his appearance which was supposed to be along side controversial conservative provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos saying, “Liberals will continue to lose if as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill.”

Founder of the InterceptJeremy Scahill, released a statement via his Twitter account on Wednesday explaining that he would not be a guest on Friday’s upcoming episode of “Real Time” alongside Yiannopoulos because of the Breitbart editor’s open advocacy of what he called, “racist, anti-immigrant campaign.” Scahill continued saying, “it will be an attempt to legitimize his [Yiannopoulos’] hateful agenda.”

Maher, who is a self describe liberal, has always been vocal with his opinions and that did not change as he tore into Scahill for the example he was setting telling Entertainment Weekly, “Liberals will continue to lose elections as long as they follow the example of people like Mr. Scahill whose views veer into fantasy and away from bedrock liberal principles like equality of women, respect for minorities, separation of religion and state, and free speech.”

“If Mr. Yiannopoulos is indeed the monster Scahill claims — and he might be — nothing could serve the liberal cause better than having him exposed on Friday night.” Maher concluded.

So far Yiannopoulos hasn’t weighed in on the controversy on Facebook — a social media account he’s still allowed to have, reports The Washington Post.

    We all absolutely love Milo Yiannopoulos even though he is a bible thumping, pro-life bully and he can shove his phony free speech crap back down his throat till he chokes on it and finally brings up the truth.

    • Ghostface-

      “bible thumping” ? lmfaooo you’re uneducated.

    • Dan

      David,
      So then that means you love him because he’s an anal-probing, flamboyant loud mouth? All 3 things I hate about him, but yet I will agree with you that I do love all the characteristics you described about him..!

  • Hugh Mungus

    “Real Tim”? “Self describe liberal”? How are we supposed to believe that these news articles fact check the information they serve us, how are supposed to believe that they and their sources are reliable if they can’ even proof read their own work which consist of less than 200 words?!

    • Yvette

      yeah, and he spelled libertarian wrong, too.

  • deplorable_kafir4life

    Scahill is obviously just a homophobe.

    He needs to be outed as such.
